    So a certain stable genius attacked his own White House on foreign surveillance policy after watching "Fox and Friends"...

    http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-attacks-fisa-white-house-pass-warrant-702-2018-1

    ... he then walked back his statement once someone told him how stupid it was.

    Also, if you want to read more about Trump's viewing relationship with Fox and Friends, check out this article: https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/01/05/trump-media-feedback-loop-216248

    Full article at link. It's quite the read.




    He then tweeted a Quinnipac poll which recorded extremely high satisfaction with the economy...

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...le-voters-opinion-us-presidents-a8153346.html

    ... not mentioning that the poll quite clearly showed that the public credits the approval of the economy to Barack Obama. The poll even shows that the longer Trump derps up the White House, the more the public is inclined to credit the sturdy economy to his predecessor.

    Earlier, Trump had bragged that his powerful negotiations with the Democrats were so successful that news anchors were sending him letters of congratulations. When pressed for proof of this by Jim Acosta, The White House released a list of two CNN videos and 19 tweets, some of which merely stated the sentiment that Trump didn't entirely shit the bed.




    And, because I don't know any other thread to put it in, Carrier laid off another 215 people yesterday. Since Trump announced his ridiculous Carrier deal as a publicity stunt in the election, the company has laid off 600 workers, almost 40% of its workforce, despite the incredible amount of money the state funneled their way to provide Trump and Pence with a photo op. It's going to lay off 700 more workers later this year, moving the jobs to Mexico.

    This reminds me of the companies that fired hundreds of workers as they gave their workers "tax cut bonuses" to hype Trump's tax cuts.

    Trump and Hillary are both enemies of the American people. We never truly have a choice to elect someone that will represent the people. The system is designed like this for a reason. These nonstop partisan threads are retarded.

    Judge Napolitano looked right at the camera and basically addressed Trump as if he knew he was of course watching. Fox News is President of the United States.

    I voted for Trump twice. This is a non-partisan thread.

    Yes. When he doesn't realize that his administration supports it and then, once informed, he changes his tune to support it. That's practically the definition of derp.

    You made an assumption that he wasnt in the know.

    doesnt that make you a derp?

    im open for suggestion here but time and time again trump plays both sides to the conversation in his favor.

    if cnn covers this as trump being a derp it makes obama look illegal while trump looks like the victim : trump wins

    Only one is in power and has a large base of support touting him as a savior to the american people. If Hilary is in that position, make all the threads highlighting how terrible she is you want, they'll be welcomed.

    If you read that and can't automatically tell the guy was correcting himself after doing something stupid, you're not living in reality. And suggesting he was "playing both sides"? What sides are those? The Fox side and the 'his administration' side?

    FISA itself has nothing to do with this clown tweeting about shit based on what he sees on Fox unaware that it's in conflict with what his administration had just said.

    17 ex-missile officers have asked congress to curb "petulant" and "foolish" Donald Trump's control of the nuclear arsenal.

    It's the TS's shtick. Didn't care about Obama signing the NDAA or continuing to torture but freaks out over Trump getting an extra scoop of ice cream.
