Emperor Bigly on being the leader of the free world: ‘I thought it would be easier’

U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump welcome President Mauricio Macri of Argentina and the First Lady of Argentina Juliana Awada at the White House

Here are some photos of Emperor Bigly and Empress Bigly yesterday at the White House. They greeted Argentina’s president Mauricio Macri and Argentine First Lady Juliana Awada. Melania wore a suit by Altuzarra in what appears to be military-green. The suit is trimmed in snakeskin and it looks completely inappropriate, like Emperor Bigly gave his wife a military commission and we’re now supposed to call her Commandante Melania. As for Juliana Awada, she wore shoes by Aquazzura… a label which has filed a complaint against Ivanka’s clothing line. Aquazzura claims Ivanka has ripped off their designs. Is that shady? I think it’s probably shady.

Meanwhile, did you know Emperor Baby Fists hates being president? He hates it so much, you guys. He’s really looking forward to being impeached, that’s how much he hates his life right now. He spoke to Reuters and here are some quotes:

He loved his life before the presidency: “I loved my previous life. I had so many things going. This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”

He handed out copies of the electoral map to the reporters: “Here, you can take that, that’s the final map of the numbers. It’s pretty good, right? The red is obviously us.”

He’s not comfortable with the 24-7 Secret Service protection: “You’re really into your own little cocoon, because you have such massive protection that you really can’t go anywhere.”

He can’t drive anymore: “I like to drive. I can’t drive any more.”

He would go to the White House Correspondents Dinner next year: “I would come next year, absolutely.”

Do you find this sad? Like, poor sad old racist man, he hates his life now. I don’t find it sad. It’s like a cautionary tale for Fox News’ core demographic, all of those old white guys who yell about the gubbimint and Mexicans, and what it would be like if they were in charge. Here you go, you’re in charge, Jethro. And Jethro is like, “Damn, this sh-t is more complicated than I previously believed.”

Trump also told Reuters that “There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely. We’d love to solve things diplomatically but it’s very difficult.” And it will be the biggest, most beautiful nuclear war ever, I’m sure.

    Poor Trump. He misses driving. Sad!

    • Megan says:

      I promise to watch every single episode of The Apprentice if Trump quits and goes back to old job. If he signs a full confession on his collusion with Russia, I will buy every advertisers products,

    • Tess says:

      And he will never ever get to drive publicly again!

    • Moe says:

      Just curious: is anybody who reads this site a trump fan? Somebody voted for the orange one after all. I live in Ireland but just came back from a visit home to the states. I didn’t meet one person from my circle of people who voted for him. How did this happen? It really felt like people were still in shock and everybody out in the world were a bit more wary and cagey. It upset me so much. On the plus side I was in downtown Portland for the scientist protest and I was totally heartened by the turnout not to mention the hilarious hand made posters.
      But if you did vote for him no shade. I’m just interested in your point of view and do you have regrets or are you still hopeful. I don’t think all these echo chambers are good for any of us.

      • Moe says:

        I have to add what upset me most were the stories for the detention of DACA people. The gobsmackingly in unAmerican attitude towards immigrants.

      • sarah says:

        @ Moe : some editorial writers have suggested that Trump voters did not want to be identified as such (i.e. voting Satan into office), so they say they voted for someone else like Clinton or whatever.

      • madonami says:

        Moe may not want to shade, but if you voted for this, I’m shading the fck out of you, forever and ever, amen.

  2. SusanneToo says:

    The man is a thuggish moron. That’s all.

    Well, maybe not all. He is so, so, so ugly. I will dance a jig when he’s dead.

    • Megan says:

      Everyone at the funeral will be dressed in red.

    • Anon says:

      A jigly for Bigly!

    • AMA1977 says:

      His insides match his outsides, for sure. I am ashamed to admit how fervently I have wished for him to have a massive coronary and just…go away.

      • Lolo86lf says:

        That’s what his children and Melania are counting on too dear lol.

      • LoveShoes says:

        I have had those same thoughts since the election. Could you imagine being in the same room with him? No wonder Melania doesn’t want to move into the WH. If she was smart, she would divorce his ass. Is she that stupid or just waiting for the big pay day?

      • sarah says:

        @ AMA1977 : you do realize that if Trump is impeached or dies in office, it will be President Pence, the arch-conservative?

    • Sarah says:

      Trump said sometimes he reads what they put in front of him to sign. Colbert said, “Sometimes!! Can someone put a resignation letter in front of him???” Trump is threatening N. Korea, he said he is good with details when the doesn’t know ONE detail of most of the plans he blah, blah, blahs about. I despise him more than is good for my soul. The Guardian has a story about his campaign taking $$. I have to go read it now.

  3. QueenElisabeth says:

    HA….he’s such an asshat

    • Tiffany :) says:

      He’s such a Monday Morning Quarterback. You mean when I actually get into the game it’s harder than bitching from the sidelines?

      Who knew health care is complicated, tax reform is complicated, being President is hard?

      Dangerous idiot.

  4. MunichGirl says:

    He’s a moron.

    He thought running a country is like running a company. Everybody would do what he wants and nobody would ask any questions.

    • Lightpurple says:

      He thought it would be like the chairman of a board who just shows up for quarterly meetings.

      • B n A fn says:

        He’s saying his job is so hard. Before the election he was saying only him can fix everything and everything would be so easy, what up with that. Did he lied to his voters. IMO, he hasn’t done one thing of substance in 100 days. Funny last week he had an extra four hours in his day to entertain his friends Sarah Palin and the rest of the deplorables.

      • Lightpurple says:

        And yesterday, he had time to tweet lies about Democrats forcing a government shut down.

      • swak says:

        @B n A fn – Did he lie to his voters? Yes and he is still lying to his voters. If words are coming out of his mouth it’s most likely a lie.

      • SusanneToo says:

        For the bus field trip he stepped out from behind a curtain, basically said Hi, and retreated behind the curtain again. Totally Oz(not the prison).

      • jwoolman says:

        That whole White House field trip was weird. Bringing all the Senators to the White House in two buses for a briefing rather than doing it in the Senate? Is that even safe? What if one of the buses crashed? We could lose half the Senate! Maybe that was the hope…

        Security concerns should have nixed the whole thing also. And for what? Nothing. Trump just said hi and left. Nothing new was revealed. No questions were answered. Pointless. They shouldn’t let him pull that again.

      • Megan says:

        @B many people share your opinion on his failed first 100 days.

    • IlsaLund says:

      How hard could the job be if a black guy is doing it, surely an alpha white male like himself could do it in his sleep?

    • Sigh... says:

      Yup. Thought he was gonna be as untested, unburdened, and undisputed as he is in his private business and life. That the whole world was going to bow and buck to him because *he’s* the one in absolute power (male, white, holding the purse strings/signing the checks).

      SURPRISE, DUMB ASS!: when you’re president, it’s the absolute opposite.

    • swak says:

      Unfortunately that’s how he is trying to run it. 9-5 days with weekends off and long weekends most of the time.

      • Megan says:

        He’s never had a real job. He had no idea that isn’t how the real world works. I assume he also thought he’d get an hour for lunch and two 15 minute breaks as part of his 9-5 day.

      • madonami says:

        He’s never worked a real 9-5 with a lunch hour and 2 breaks in his life. He’s never really run a business either. He was born rich, got into bed with various mafias, slapped his name on shit, small batch of execs did the work, shady af lawyers + mafias acted as enforcers. He’s been a bratty, racist, sexist, lazy useless do-nothing of low repute his whole life. This was a grotesque PR stunt that turned into his pathetic ego desperately not wanting to lose to a woman or in comparison to a Black man, and now all he wants to do is talk about The Historic Win (it wasn’t) and golf, fck the hardest job in the goddamn world and, yknow, people’s lives.

        “Deplorable” is way too fcking kind.

    • Digital Unicorn (aKa Betti) says:

      Yes and so does Ken Doll who has said he intents to run it like a business. Scary times.

    • Beth says:

      So many of his voters said because he’s a “successful ” business man, he’d be able to get the country back in perfect shape. He’d know how to do everything and millions of people would have jobs. Barf. He’s not a success, he’s been bankrupt and sued thousands of times. They fell for a con mans lies

      • Tiffany :) says:

        So true. Far too many Americans assume that if you are rich, it means you are smart and talented. “He must be doing something right” is ingrained very deeply.

      • Reindeer says:

        When I brought up how many times he has declared bankruptcy, and been sued for his business practices, when my father stated that he was voting for the orange cheeto because he hoped he made abortion illegal, even though I just about had an abortion forced on me by my parents when I was younger…

        My father tried to argue that the sign of a good businessman is knowing when your company is going down, filing bankruptcy to protect what you have, and starting over, to try to make something out of what you have left.

        Uhhhh… Vurt de furk? I understand making that argument if a person had declared bankruptcy once, and the managed a turn-around.

        BUT… He has done this how many times? How many times has he been sued for bad business practices? How many times has he been accused of rape?

        Yeah. He just got belligerent. I HATE FOX NEWS WITH A PASSION. It has turned my parents in to idiots.

      • SusanneToo says:

        @Reindeer. Does your father not understand that bankruptcy hurts the creditors? What about their need to make something?

      • madonami says:

        Assumption = if you’re a rich white guy, you must be omnipotent, omniscient. You can do anything. Even if you’re actually good at business, which dt is NOT, that does not mean you know fck-all about potus. But let’s act like Kushner, Bloomberg, Zuckerberg, all of ‘em, they can obviously be potus, no prob because Rich White Guy. Fact is, right now rich white guys are a big part of the PROBLEM and need to GET THE FCK OUT of power positions and wander in the desert for 40 years until they learn a goddamn thing or two.

    • Lolo86lf says:

      That’s exactly what he thought! He thought all he needed to do was dictate orders and everyone would bow down to his every whim.

    • Lisa says:

      The problem is that he thought that the Presidency is like any 9 to 5 job. He was probably expecting to come to work at 9, have a few meetings and bark orders until maybe have a working lunch at 1, have a nap from 2 to 3:30, then watch Fox and Breitbart and tweet until it’s time to go home at 5.
      He’s so delusional, mind-numbingly stupid and incredibly unprepared, it blows my mind.

    • Veronica says:

      I knew some of my coworkers were idiots when they said his business experience would make him a good president. Because anybody with a modicum of intelligence would recognize that running a country of 400 million plus people is a lot more complicated than a profit venture.

      • Esmom says:

        Also anyone with half a brain could see his “success” was not the result of keen intelligence and/or savvy business acumen.

    • Flora says:

      Exactly! Plus he’s not the leader of the free world. Angela Merkel took that title when Obama left the WH.

    • Sarah says:

      Trump whined about how hard this job is, how much he works and how he misses hiss old life right after being told about two soldiers who lost their lives in a battle. Nice.

  5. littlemissnaughty says:

    I need to lie down. The stupidity is crushing me.

  6. mia girl says:

    He is a colossal idiot of epic, never-seen-before-in-the-history-of-man proportions.

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      A complete idiot. He also comes across as very whiny here. If he doesn’t like this job he isn’t qualified for anyway and only got because of privilege and because of human beings being disgusting, he can always just resign. Or have a breakdown or something.

  7. Onemoretime says:

    It’s hard because the minimum requirement is basic reading skills which Mr Drumpf doesn’t have. Sad, bigly sad, yugely sad!

  8. Mgsota says:

    What the f*#k is wrong with this dude?Handing out electoral maps…so pathetic.

    I was debating on booking a trip for the family this summer, thinking I should use the money for more responsible things…then I thought f*#k it, Bigly is going to kill us all so might as well enjoy life while we can. We leave for Mexico next month! I’m thinking of wearing my Tuck Frump tshirt while I’m there so Mexicans know where I stand.

    • B n A fn says:

      hes never going to get over that Hillary received more than three million vote than he did. This is something that he will take to his grave.

      • greenmonster says:

        Is it bad that I hope this day comes rather sooner than later? And without taking most of humanity with him!?!

      • IlsaLund says:

        I hope it eats at him and drives his egotistic ass crazy….a female got more votes than him.

      • SusanneToo says:

        @greenmonster. It’s something I pray for every day and I’m not even religious.
        There are several I hope he takes to Hell with him – pence, ryan, mcconnell, the entire Republican Congress, all of his Cabinet members, his family(exempting Barron & Tiffany), all rw media. That’s my fervent wish, hope, prayer.

      • Beth says:

        He’ll always be jealous that she actually won, but will NEVER let anyone forget he became president by winning the electoral college vote. His bragging is pathetic. Time for him to move on and do his job

      • Disco Dancer says:

        I hope he has a heart attack and dies form the heartbreak that a woman beat him
        Handily!

    • jwoolman says:

      You can find out how to say “My President is an idiot and I didn’t vote for him” in Spanish. You can even find it on a t-shirt in multiple languages.

      I would personally ask native speakers how to say “My President is batshit crazy. Sorry. I didn’t vote for him.”

      Oh, don’t forget to pick up a Trump piñata. They are very popular in Mexico.

      • Eleonor says:

        I had a “I didn’t vote for Berlusconi” t-shirt…

      • Mgsota says:

        Lol jwoolman…I’m going to teach my family of 4 that phrase in Spanish, so whenever we meet someone we can start off on the right foot!

        “Hi, I’m mgsota from the U.S. I did not vote for that disgusting pile of sh*t we call the president. Please forgive us for our stupidity.”

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      That shirt sounds like a very good idea. It would be nice to have one that said it in Spanish on the front and in English in the back. Being associated with the country that has Trump as president is definitely an embarrassment.

  9. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    Knowing his racist ass, he probably thought ” if the Black Muslim Kenyan could do it, so can I.” Glossing over all of President Obama’s academic accomplishments. his career and dedication to public work.

    Dump’s voters probably thought the same damn thing.

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      My racist Trump voting aunt sure as hell does. She also refers to Obama as the Antichrist.
      I avoid her at all costs.

    • Andrea says:

      My father was raving that Trump is doing away with the death tax–I told him that only applies to rich people. Since my father is well off, as long as he isn’t taxed much, he doesn’t care about anyone else. I find it so sad. Since when did so many Americans become SOO selfish? It is why we will never have universal healthcare either.

      • Christin says:

        This estate tax rhetoric leaves out the fact that the upper limit has been gradually raised during the past few years, from around $1M to now $5M (which seems very reasonable). The very wealthy will benefit from eliminating the estate tax entirely. It’s for him & his buddies.

  10. Guest says:

    Just more proof that he never wanted to be president.

  11. alfaQ says:

    Only an idiot would think it’s an easy job but whatever…

  12. Penny says:

    I hate this man more than I can put into words.

  13. D says:

    Is this laughable or just scary? How stupid do you have to be to think that being the President would be easy?

  14. isakka says:

    He sounds unhappy. Guess Ivanka forgot to change his diapers and give him his daily Happy Meal.

    • Sarah says:

      Or he didn’t get his three buckets of KFC before noon.
      Seriously, he whined about this right after learning that 2 soldiers lost their lives. Asshat

    • madonami says:

      I think he’s pretty much always miserable. I really think the permanent scowl and suchlike is evidence of his mental illness and/or malevolence. There’s nothing normal/natural about his demeanor, ever. The only times he seems not-scowly is when he’s gleefully talking about hurting someone, beating someone, etc. I’m not talking about benign mental illness, by which I mean depression, anxiety, etc. – and I’ve got a solid dose of both – I find that people with benign (I don’t mean the effects are benign, they’re awful) mental illness are among the most kind, sensitive, compassionate people – I’m talking about malignant mental illness. Violent, empathy-free, dark triad sht. He is angry, autocratic, ranting, hurtful, nasty, hateful, miserable, ALL the time. That is not a normal disposition toward the world or your fellow man/woman. I legit think he’s always scowling b/c of the absolute disaster of stormy malignancy that is his brain.

  15. Manjit says:

    That green suit is truly horrible.

    • SusanneToo says:

      But that shows Chickensh1t Chickenhawk trump’s support for the military – he’s standing next to someone in uniform. Maybe melania will award him a Cracker Jack medal later.

    • swak says:

      What is that string(?) hanging down at the bottom of the skirt by the slit? Yet, MO and bare arms were so inappropriate.

    • Annetommy says:

      Lieutenant Melania is out-glammed by the Lady in Red in that pic. The depths of trump’s idiocy are shown by the “easy” quote. Truly the Mariana Trench of stupidity.

      • Indiana Joanna says:

        Melania and her outfit are cartoonish. No sense of style and horribly jumped up looking from extensive plastic surgery.

    • pinetree13 says:

      You know what, the two women standing there, made me feel sad. They both litterally look like barbie dolls. Like nothing more than empty eye candy next to the ‘important men’. Like why do women HAVE TO wear heels? Why can’t one of them be in flats?

      Am I the only one that got that feeling from the photo? Like, “Look women! Here’s what you can aspire to! Standing decoratively next to important men. Then people will discuss who and what you’re wearing since that’s all you are. A clothes horse. Not a person with ideas.”

      • Rachel says:

        I found it particularly interesting that Trump was standing closer to the Argentinian First Lady than his own wife. Got get closer to the more attractive woman.

      • PamelaJudy says:

        Looks like Melania and Easy D are going out of their way not to touch each other. Check his body language in the first pic. He’s facing away from Melania, towards the Argentinian First Lady.

      • Snowflake says:

        You’re not the only one. I saw that picture on an article by DM titled, first lady fashion face off! I was like, WTF? Are we back in the 50s? Women sit by their man, looking pretty, with their mouth shut?

      • Really? says:

        To be fair, at least the women are attractive and probably intelligent? (or so Kaiser’s shade implies) Trump is both ugly and stupid, and the world knows it. The role of the First Lady has always been more like that of the Royals, to support the person in office and to do charity work. The Argentinian First Lady has fulfilled her role by promoting the arts and the Ministry of Social Development in her country. The US First Lady has yet to do anywhere near the same. It would have been interesting to see what Clinton would have done with the First Husband role, but we have this instead.

    • madonami says:

      It’s a fcking cargo/military/safari suit. None of which are appropriate themes for the occasion. Also, is it real snakeskin? Wouldn’t be surprised. She’s got the same abnormal demeanor thing going as he does. There is nothing natural about the demeanor, ever. No authenticity. Just scowly weird-ass vibes. They hate this life, they hate each other, they hate others. Being so fcking clueless, malevolent, selfish, lazy and hateful will make you scowly. I don’t know much about Tiffany (because they lock her in a basement) and the young one is young, but other than that, this entire family is human garbage. NOT SORRY.

  16. greenmonster says:

    I can’t believe someone this stupid can walk and talk. A piece of wood would have more qualifications.

    • Ankhel says:

      “This piece of wood doesn’t lie. It’s finances are transparent. It can’t nuke anyone on it’s own. It has no grasping family, only this cute dog. Spot carries the candidate around. Vote Wood!”

      DONE.

  17. minx says:

    I think he should go back to his old life ASAP.

  18. Beth says:

    Awe. Poor thing! Time for him to go.
    If being president was easy, dingbat Don, any regular citizen could be elected. What the f*ck were his supporters thinking when they decided to elect a p*ssy grabbing, real estate guy who has ties and all of his junk made in China and Mexico? Did he think president was a 9-5, 5 day a week job where he only signed EOs all day and golfed every weekend in Florida?

  19. polonoscopy says:

    Fuuuuck You sooooooo hard.

    You don’t like it? Quit. But you better make sure you scrub all your mistakes from office before you do, including that little pissant Mike Pence.

    • madonami says:

      Amen. How fucking dare this asshole publicly btch about how much it sucks representing the US? Excuse me very much, but fcked up as it is, it’s a pretty great country, I will never not be amazed at having that level of power, wealth, access, staff, privilege, and STILL be btching about your “tough life.” This idiot, on paper, got everything he ever wanted in life, and he’s STILL WHINING.

      FCK ALLLLL THE WAY OFF.

      (I say on paper b/c there’s a lot of things he didn’t get – character, curiosity, heart, and – importantly – respect. I think that’s one big reason he’s so obsessed with HRC and BO. He will never, ever have the respect of wide swaths of regular people, and high culture, that they do. Not ever.)

  20. nemera34 says:

    Did this site cover his AP Interview. Because that shows how ignorant he is. He doesn’t like being President. He doesn’t like that what he says can’t be Law. He hates Obama. Everything is Obama’s fault.

    We are screwed big time.

    • amalia says:

      He’s jealous of Obama and wants to destroy his legacy.

      • nemera34 says:

        Glad to see that I’m not the only one that sees that. Because everything he does is about Obama.

      • Lightpurple says:

        And McConnell and Ryan are only too eager to help him with that.

      • kNY says:

        It really is all about Obama for him. Something about Obama being President unhinged a group of people. It was sort of a “How DARE he?” kind of mentality. I’ve seen commenters on People magazine bring up the Obamas moving Michelle’s mother into the White House as a waste of resources – in the face of all the gallons of cash spent on protecting trump’s family as they galavant across the globe for their own interests.

      • Lightpurple says:

        And the Obamas PAID rent for Michelle’s mother to live there. That always gets ignored.

      • madonami says:

        And HRC.

    • BJ says:

      He hates Obama but respects Putin.

    • Deering says:

      kNY–that “something” that group hates is that Obama is black. How dare black folks be educated, accomplished, and successful? How dare they be as good or better than any white man? The world is not supposed to work like that as far as they are concerned. And these folks will do anything to destroy what Obama had the “nerve” to accomplish.

    Donald Trump’s First 100 Days In Office | Season 28 | THE SIMPSONS

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qo3fT0xPeHs

  22. Jenns says:

    I’m honestly shocked that he said this out loud. I think this speaks volumes on how much he hates this job. He only wanted to win. He does not want to be president. He does not want to govern. He does not have the intelligence, curiosity or even the passion to be the leader of the free world. He’s 70 years old. He wants to live in his golden apartment, eat fast food, tweet, golf and harass women. This is probably why Ivanka is sliding up her seat next to him in The Oval Office. She has to help keep him interested and engaged.

    This is also why the who theory of an outsider coming in and “shaking up the system” is total BS. The political system is well established. No one can come in and just “shake things up”. Trump tried and the courts stopped him. He couldn’t shake up his own part with healthcare. Bannon tried to put his foot down and everyone in the room laughed at him. You don’t need an outsider, you need someone who knows the system and how to work it.

    He should just resign and go back to his old life.

    • Disco Dancer says:

      Speaking of Bannon- he’s been too quiet lately, no? Wonder whether it’s worrisome that he’s too quiet or whether I should be happy that this racist pig who just wants to
      Upend a system and cause chaos, for chaos’s sake, is gwttting sidelined.

  23. Wellsie says:

    Can a president just quit?
    Asking for a douchebag.

    • SusanneToo says:

      Yes. Lots of excuses. Medical reasons or the one I love most, “to spend more time with the family.” That’s always a sure sign that the Feds are hot on one’s heels.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Nixon did. Agnew did.

      • cr says:

        Agnew resigned because of being indicted on tax evasion, a charge he pled to, which gave us VP Ford. And then Nixon resigned to avoid being impeached which gave us President Ford. The options are worse this time around.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Pence would not be worse than Trump.

      • cr says:

        Pence is more sane, so there’s that. But he’s very scary in his own way.

      • Deering says:

        Pence would be worse in a different way. He’s a religious fanatic who can put a friendly face on atrocity–and he knows how to work the system.

  24. B n A fn says:

    He misses his previous life. I don’t believe anyone will stop him from going back to that great life. I know I would feel more at peace knowing he’s not anywhere near that nuclear button. I would feel better seeing him driving around NYC with his top down. I saw he has a red button on his desk he pushes to call for a Coke. I guess he thought that was funny, ha ha.

    • amalia says:

      He will run again 2020 because he has a huge ego.

      • kNY says:

        He will be 74. I really do wonder if he’ll run again. I think he’ll say, “I’ve accomplished what I’ve set out to accomplish. Big accomplishments. Huge, man-sized accomplishments. Ivanka agrees with me. Everyone agrees with me.”

        I’m sure he misses his old life. It was a nice life if you think about it – he got to do whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted. Had lots of money at his disposal. His job was being donald trump. He worked hard in the way that Kim Kardashian works hard – he had a make-up person orange-up his face and let the cameras roll. He hawked ridiculous things. That was his “work.” I don’t think the high he gets from his ridiculous rallies is enough to make him want to run again.

    • jwoolman says:

      Wouldn’t it be cheaper just to get a little office refrigerator and get off his duff once in a while to fetch a coke himself?

      They even make ones just big enough for a soda can, sometimes running off a USB port.

  26. vauvert says:

    McSquinty looks like a caricature female villain with a trashy accent in a bad action movie (and are those threads hanging form her skirt slit? How charming). Just like Kate she never pulls her hair back or up – I guess she thinks it makes her more sexy. Dumb as a box of rocks.

    I am with you the rest of you, the insanity of this man and his screaming lack of a single redeeming feature, never mind qualification for the job, will get us all killed. Does anyone know – who actually has the bloody buttons he needs to push to launch “the nuclear, which is very important”? Can’t they replace them with toy trucks or something? Or the big red button you can buy at Staples?

  27. IlsaLund says:

    At least he finally admitted the truth which those of us with brains have known all along. He only wanted to win….he was never interested in doing the job of President. It sickens me that there are so many moronic, ignorant, hateful people out there that voted for this worthless POS. And now the rest of us have to suffer and are in danger of being killed cause this clown has the freaking nuclear codes.

    Pray, pray without ceasing that we all survive this real life version of the Twilight Zone,

  28. Merritt says:

    Of course he thought it would be easier. He has no idea what a president does. He doesn’t understand the Constitution. He doesn’t understand policy. He thought being president would be about parades, cheering, and getting his own way all the time. He wants to be the American version of Kim Jong Un.

    • Canadian Bacon says:

      YES! Kim Jong Trump.

      I’m Canadian, but can I say this? He’s a disgrace. He’s a disaster, I tell you; A DISASTER!

      • SusanneToo says:

        Can’t you get Justin to bite the bullet and pat Plastic Barbie on the butt and whisper sweet nothings in her ear? Specifically, what trump should be doing and not doing. Come on, you could save humanity.

  29. MellyMel says:

    He’s such a piece of sh*t .

  30. Insomniac says:

    What. Did he THINK. The presidency would be like? Did he somehow miss how much it aged his two predecessors? I remember that “Oh shit” face he had after that first post-election meeting with Obama, but I didn’t realize how clueless he really was.

  31. Daisy says:

    Can we stop using the term “leader of the free world”?

  32. robyn says:

    Really really hoping Trump is setting himself up to resign before impeachment. He’s an inept loose cannon … just as his opponents said he would be.

    It’s weird how Trump’s kindly stance about Putin and Russia has gotten more and more Republicans thinking Putin is a harmless little teddy bear. Many don’t even care if Trump colluded with Russia to help his campaign. When Republicans, along with media like Fox, seek power and overlook history they are colluding to spread propaganda/lies for the Russian leadership. People really need to get educated. Politicians need to truly educate not demagogue and lie to the American people. Lying is the norm in Russia. They even lied about sneaking in banned substances to their team during the Olympics. Doesn’t lying mean anything anymore?

    • swak says:

      Apparently lying is the new norm with this administration. I tell my grandkids all the time that the one thing I cannot tolerate is their lying and it will only get them in more trouble. Unfortunately, Trump’s lying has only gotten him praise from his supporters.

  33. Karen says:

    And the winning just keeps coming..today’s BIG news

    The US economy started 2017 at a sluggish pace.
    It only grew at an annual pace of 0.7% in the first three months of the year, according to the Commerce Department’s report on gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic activity. It was the slowest quarter of growth since the first quarter of 2014.

    I certainly have cut back my personal spending since I have no idea what they will be doing with health insurance and predict large increase. Also their ONE PAGE tax plan was deliberately targeted to blue states where we can deduct state taxes on our federal forms. You know this was not a coincidence.

    • B n A fn says:

      He’s going to blame that on Obama, I’ll bet you a million bucks.

      • kNY says:

        Oh, totally. They’re trying to blame Flynn not being vetted enough on Obama.

        I miss Obama so much. Yesterday, someone I work with and I were reminiscing about how it felt to not be embarrassed by the president.

    • Christin says:

      I’ve cut back on personal spending as well. There are far too many unknowns right now, so I am slowing spending and putting a little more into rainy day/retirement savings. It’s clear to me they want to put the pinch on working-middle class.

    • Disco Dancer says:

      Yep making America Great Again one economic slowdown at a time.

  34. adastraperaspera says:

    I actually don’t think he is stupid. I think he tweeted this about the job “being hard” to lay the foundation for his resignation. He needs some excuse for leaving so he can deny to his base that he was forced due to treason and corruption. The FBI and CIA may be showing some of their hand to him. I fear they may let him slip the trap, so they can prioritize working with EU allies to get Putin shoved off the world stage.

    • Nina says:

      I can’t see him resigning. He’s too arrogant to just give up like that.

      I keep hoping he has some sort of breakdown that forces him to leave (not death, because if he died, he’d become a martyr to his supporters, and the thought of him becoming a martyr sickens me), but I sort of feel that his staff coddles him too much to let that happen. Whenever he needs a break (which is all the time), they just let him go to Mar-A-Lago, or hold a rally, while they do all of the heavy lifting behind the scenes. They know he’s incompetent, and they’re careful not to let him get too stressed out.

      • adastraperaspera says:

        Yeah, he does love rubbing it in that he is president. I can dream, can’t I? Sigh.

      • Nina says:

        Nah, I feel as though something eventually has to give. With all of the in-fighting going on among his people, it’s only a matter of time. I think that the wrong person (and by that I mean the right person) is going to get fired, and with nothing to lose, will throw him and his cronies under the bus.

      • Louisa says:

        I can see him resigning but making sure everyone knew it was because he “had no choice”. He’d blame the establishment, particularly Democrats, for him not being able to get anything done (“the democrats wouldn’t let me make America great again no matter how hard I tried”).
        He’d also blame the intelligence agencies and the investigations into Russia and how unfair it was to him. He’d make his base believe that he was the victim and that he was never going to be “allowed” to do what he needed to do, so he was resigning for the good of the country.

      • Kitten says:

        “the democrats wouldn’t let me make America great again no matter how hard I tried”

        THIS. We don’t know whether he’ll resign or not but we know for sure that if he does, he will find a way to blame the Dems or Obama.

  35. Eric says:

    Please please no first-strike nuke attack on North Korea.

    Jesus.

    • emilybyrd says:

      Ivanka, Jared, and the rest of the staff can’t be there 24/7 to baby-sit him. So–and I can’t believe I’m saying this about a first strike nuclear weapons launch by the U.S. government–it’s possible.

  36. Scal says:

    But her emails!!!*eyeroll*

    Say what you will of Hilary-but she knew how hard this job is and took it seriously.

  37. Singtress says:

    It’s always been obvious he was clueless about the job.
    His ego made him run. Not a desire to govern.

  38. HK9 says:

    Sub-moronic cretin. We’re heading for conflict with North Korea and since he’s finding his job a ‘little difficult’ he’s going to leave a hand bag designer and an overgrown trustafarian to sort it out. He’s completely unfit.

  39. Playitagain says:

    I’ve said from the moment he announced that he never actually wanted to do the work of the president. He’s only ever wanted the prestige, the title, the WIN. He doesn’t care about anything except lining his own pockets. It’s baffling and tragic that so many normally rational people were so willing to overlook their instincts about his boorish, infantile behavior and inferior intellect to vote for him. Whether it was general Clinton-hate, the stupid email debacle, the fact that she is a woman, or something else that led some to vote against her, none of it justified a vote for Trump. And the whole world may end up suffering for it.

  40. Triple Cardinal says:

    He didn’t want to win. He just wanted to one-up Obama, especially since Obama made some jokes at Trump’s expense at the WH Correspondent’s Dinner several years ago.

    But for Trump to think that the presidency would be essier than moving NYC real estate shows just how big a bonehead Trump is.

  41. Rapunzel says:

    And he’s retweeting Fox and Friends. Again. This time, he retweeting a negative comment about -you guessed it- Obama. Cause making money for a speech is so wrong for an ex-President.

    • Kitten says:

      Did you see my comment on the Ivanka thread today? JFC people it is NOT unusual for former Presidents to accept paid speaking engagements. But the Right and Bernie Bros alike crucified HRC for speaking to banks and now of course, Obama. Never mind that Dubs was out there getting his paid speech on pretty much as soon as he was out of Office. And you know what? That’s OK! WGAF?

      Obama is a private citizen now and he can do whatever the f*ck he wants.

      ETA: I don’t think it was the best move (in terms of mere optics) for Clinton, knowing that she was preparing to run again, but it’s not like she was having bank CEOs to her house for dinner, she was paid to speak to bank employees.

  42. S says:

    Sigh. Our Moron-in-Chief has taken 9 vacations in 3 months and watches 6-8 hours of cable news per day. He’s delegated all military action to “the generals” and Jared Kushner is in charge of everything else. How cushy was his life before?

    Oh, yeah, and the last time Donald Trump drove his own car, the Edsel was still the hot, new ride.

    • swak says:

      I was wondering how much he really drives as it seems NYC would not be the best of places to drive in (like a lot of cities). Maybe when he was in Florida he drove more?

    • Christin says:

      Seriously, he has probably had a chauffeur his entire life.

    • Ashamed 2 b a Fl girl says:

      He probably drove his own golf cart.

  43. Lucy says:

    Just came here to say: Pot, meet Kettle. Macri and Awada are the Argentinian equivalent of the Trumps. Scum all around.

  44. Cee says:

    Then why did he even ran???? WTH goes on in his head? Too much hair bleach.

  45. IlsaLund says:

    Did anyone read the new Reuters interview with Trump? Apparently, one of the reasons he changed his mind on NAFTA was because the Agriculture Secretary showed him a visual map that showed those who’d be most hurt by eliminating NAFTA would be red states who voted for him. Evidently to get him to understand complex issues, just show him colorful visuals and then he kinda, sorta gets it. The other visual worth noting involves his tax cut plan. Since the impact would be most felt on blue states (those mean people who didn’t vote for him & don’t support him) he proposes eliminating the deduction for state & local taxes. And the useless news media is crowing about how Dems now have to support a tax deduction used only by the wealthy. WTF??? I am by no means wealthy and I use that tax deduction.

    • swak says:

      I use that tax deduction also (retired on pension) and it really isn’t all that much. Plus, the next year, IIRC, it is considered income and now is subject to being taxed.

  46. Jessica says:

    White Americans are so dumb for voting for this clown. This is the biggest embarrassment for white people since…. well anyway. I find it amusing that people all over the world think white Americans are the most deluded people on the planet and don’t understand why POC haven’t burned this country down. I seriously rather takes my chances in Germany or Sweden.

    • Cran says:

      Contrary to Trump/Sessions/Bannon/Miller etc repugnant propaganda POC have common sense. Like it or not the clock is ticking on white folks which has been documented for decades. Attempts at banning or restricting immigration, gerrymandering and increasing incarcerations will not prevent white Americans from becoming a minority. And that’s not even taking into account the destruction they are doing to themselves with opioids.

      Welcome to the real world.

    • Snowflake says:

      Um, white people aren’t the only ones that voted for him. My husband’s Uncle, and his roommate, both black, voted for him. So did other black people I know AND, a Hispanic guy at work LOVES Trump.

    • Beth says:

      @Jessica, like Snowflake said, it wasn’t just white people who voted for Trump. I have black , Native American,Asian and Latino friends and family members who unfortunately voted for him. It wasn’t just whites at his pep rallies either. Do you ever watched the news? You can’t dump all the blame on white people!

  47. Indiana Joanna says:

    Can we, once and for all stop calling the US president the “leader of the free world” ? Especially when talking about Trump!

  55. Tess says:

    Nooo…. noooooo!!! Thinking before he speaks is not his strong suit like at all, like he’s inhabiting a completely different galaxy, far far away from Planet Think Before You Speak.
    People are reading this around the world and they all must think everyone who lives in the USA are idiots.
    How many people are face palming? I mean HRC must’ve slammed her whole face against a table. I feel like even children who believe they can be president one day know that it’s not easier than being a businessman.
    Out of all the dumb things anyone has ever said, this has to be the dumbest.

  56. Olivia13 says:

    My husband said Trump would tire of this quickly and want his own life back including driving. lol

  57. Anna says:

    He makes me ashamed to be of the same species.

  58. Jezza says:

    What a f—ing collosal asshat!🙄
    Poor baby fisted cheeto…presidenting is hard, y’all!

    The fact that he thought it would be a cushy gig shows that he wanted all the glory, zero responsibility. I bet he thought that everybody would just do whatever he wanted. The fact he is pushing through so many executive orders and not trying to work with both sides of the aisle to pass legislations proves that he wants it his way and doesn’t want anyone’s input.

    Go back to your cushy life…please!!!!!!!!! And take Pence with you!!!

  59. why? says:

    So Trump thought that being President meant that he could do and say whatever he wanted and that everyone, including other world leaders, the press, journalists, judges, senators, governors, and democrats, had to obey his every command. It seems that Trump was under the impression that the American government was a dictatorship. This is the major point that the press is missing. When Trump says that he thought it would be easy, what he really is saying that he thought that America was a dictatorship like Russia. It would be more helpful if these people who are interviewing Trump had fact checkers in these interviews with Trump. He can’t keep getting away with this by telling lies and blaming Obama.

    Trump is also destabilizing us, it’s going to take years to undo all of the damage he is doing. Keep in mind that he is still signing EOs that remove regulations off of everything that was put in place to protect us.

    Once again, the media is trying to use Trumps “being President isn’t easy” comment to normalize Trump. This isn’t a moment of incite for Trump. If it were, he would be somewhere learning and reading from his mistakes, instead of on twitter tweeting about NK. Kelly O Donell praised the Trump administration for not saying too much about NK missile fire today. She was trying to push that the Trump Administration is taking the higher road. And then Trump got on twitter and proved how wrong she was.

  60. why? says:

    After claiming that her father supports women, today Trump got on a stage and called Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas”. Where was Ivanka to moderate and influence her father to do the right thing?

  61. robyn says:

    Here’s something disgusting. Looks like at least 20 percent of Trump voters have no sense of decency or democracy or love of country. Perhaps they should be deported along with Trump and his cohorts to Russia. This quote from Salon and CNN:

    “According to a new CNN/ORC poll, 20 percent of Republican voters indicated that they would have no problem “at all” if the FBI investigation looking into contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives revealed something nefarious.”

  62. Shannon says:

    We. Are. So. F***ed. That’s all I got.

  63. Lindy says:

    I just… Despair. How are we going to survive this horror show (assuming he’s too arrogant to step down)? It’s been 100 days but it feels like years. He never wanted this job. He wants #winning and the presidency felt like the biggest prize. And now we’re all totally f#*&d.

    Last night a friend came by unexpectedly. I thought I didn’t have anything on hand to offer her a drink. I realized there’s a bottle of prosecco in the back of my fridge which I’d bought the day of the election so I could celebrate the first woman president. We decided to crack it open and have a drink in hopes that maybe it had some kind of magic powers to erase everything since November, and we’d wake up this morning with a real grown-up as president. Alas. Didn’t work.

  64. elen t says:

    The sad thing is that he probably already regret running for president. For all his vulgarity, rudeness and occassional cruelity
    Trump more and more appear as a sad old man whose best years are far behind him.
    I fell upon an old VF interview in which he talks about being member of a Palm Spring club , his words as cited
    “Of course!’ Do you think if I wanted to be a member they would have turned me down? I wouldn’t join that club, because they don’t take blacks and Jews.”
    Pity that age has brought him to a very different set of mind.
