Anyone watching? Policy aside, he's batshit crazy.

Did you know that Obama told Trump that "he was so close to starting a big war with North Korea"?

That Japan has nominated Trump for the Nobel Prize?

That the China trade deal will be the "biggest deal ever made"?

That the US government is giving law enforcement "a lot of surplus"?

That PM Abe hand wrote Trump a 5-page letter about all of Trump's great accomplishments?

Nonsense aside, he doesn't even seem to understand how to support his own arguments - how many times did he say "I don't need to declare a national emergency to build the wall, but I want to do it faster"?

Best part was him ignoring the question about the stats from his own government showing illegal immigration, drug flow etc. are are historical lows and just repeating "I talk to Homeland Security".

what an embarrassment. Everything he said was a lie. He literally said in the news conference, before Q&A, he's got more money than he knows what to do with allocated in this bill. WTF you need to declare a National Emergency for. He has ZERO idea still what's going on when it comes to bills, laws, budgets, facts, etc.

I thought the same, but to be fair, he may have been starting the argument that the money is already there but there's no more room to spend it as it's been allocated so he's just going to slide it over to another related matter. I don't think anyone will agree that this is a legally-justifiable argument, but that's probably what he's going for.

today's press conference further confirms Cheeto has never read a bill that's come across his desk or listen to any adviser during his Presidency. He's still bullshitting on everything he says ignoring all the intelligence at his disposal

He's either extremely high on speed and/or the dementia is really taking hold. And did anyone notice how winded he was just from standing at a podium? He was huffing and puffing. LOW ENERGY.

B,

Can you name what fallacy this is?

It's an easy one.


A threat response is a potent trigger for motivated reasoning.

Except drinking liberal tears is nothing like catching a fish.

Its more like glee because the person you dislike didnt catch the fish.

Why do you people suck at analogies?

That is known as neglect fishing which is fine in the short term but leads to catastrophe in the long term due to faulty neural priming.

Don't say i never warned ya.

Unlike recent Rose Garden events, the president wasnt relying on a teleprompter. At times, he hardly seemed to be using notes at all.

Freestyling on live TV. Who does that?

I don't really understand the teleprompter hate. So what if someone would rather get their message out via script rather than just rambling?

Agreed. Anything else is borderline irresponsible coming from the POTUS. A simple misstatement can have dramatic effects. Trump in particular seems - to me anyway - much more effective when he stays on script.

Using a teleprompter effectively is a skill.
