It seems they think to them selves, what bad thing can we say Trump has done. They think and can only come up with bad things they have done and so they go, "yeah let's accuse him of that".


Kind of a "he who smelt it dealt it" sort of thing?

Spealing of paradoxes...

Imagine that a farmer has a sack containing 100 lbs of potatoes. The potatoes, he discovers, are comprised of 99% water and 1% solids, so he leaves them in the heat of the sun for a day to let the amount of water in them reduce to 98%. But when he returns to them the day after, he finds his 100 lb sack now weighs just 50 lbs. How can this be true? Well, if 99% of 100 lbs of potatoes is water then the water must weigh 99 lbs. The 1% of solids must ultimately weigh just 1 lb, giving a ratio of solids to liquids of 1:99. But if the potatoes are allowed to dehydrate to 98% water, the solids must now account for 2% of the weight—a ratio of 2:98, or 1:49—even though the solids must still only weigh 1lb. The water, ultimately, must now weigh 49lb, giving a total weight of 50lbs despite just a 1% reduction in water content. Or must it?

Although not a true paradox in the strictest sense, the counterintuitive Potato Paradox is a famous example of what is known as a veridical paradox, in which a basic theory is taken to a logical but apparently absurd conclusion. :yawn

Trump unveiled his infrastructure plan for America. I had to go to a foreign news source to get a news article that wasn't overtly negative. Even ones that didn't sound negative were subtly negative in just their headlines using words like "long awaited" indicating Trump was late to the party. Most said that the plan required the states to pay for the infrastructure, like that was a bad thing. Apparently the plan favors Red states, states with low populations rather than urban areas. Note to CNN, the majority of highways are in the country side. Apparently the program provides seed money rather than paying for the whole thing, so if you want a new bridge, the local state needs to pony up some money as well.

Not to be out done the Obama's unveiled their portraits for the Smithsonian. Depending on who you talked to the portraits were brilliant or ugly and not in keeping with being Presidential. To me both were interesting, and quite a departure from the others in the Smithsonian collection of Presidents and First Ladies.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/12/arts ... trait.html

Most portraits in the Smithsonian collection are traditional oil paintings, even the Clinton's are similar. The Obama's will stand out.

http://npg.si.edu/portraits/collection- ... -portraits

Its not as if they are Picasso type paintings where the nose is not between the eyes, or paint thrown at the canvas, they are more like Rolling Stone covers done by Annie Leibovitz, where David Byrne is wearing a jacket made of green leaves https://www.lemuriabooks.com/Annie-s-Bi ... 552370.htm. To me Michelle's portrait was better because of the big pretty dress, but it doesn't really look like her and she is painted in grey. I think the artist was making some kind of statement, first first lady of color and she is painted in grey. The Obama's selected African American artists, however, if you really wanted to unite America, President Obama might have selected a different artist as some American's might find his selection of artists offensive. But even though they elected him, maybe he was never really their President after all. Judge for yourself.

Nah... it's only divisive and racist when a white person selects another. :roll:


Their "art" actually speaks [quite articulately] for itself... it shows/says how out of touch they were. :confused5

1. They put the wrong kind of plants behind our pot smoking ex president.

2. They did a good job of capturing her itchy resting face.

I can think of much more appropriate uses for those portraits.

After seeing Obama's portrait, it's nice to see he's finally put bush behind him. :biggrinjester:

This is a thread about President Trump, not the lying treasonous organizer who proceeded him.

President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen said Tuesday that he paid $130,000 of his own money to a porn star shortly before the presidential election.

Of course the MSM is generating more fake news, claiming that the payment was on behalf of Trump, for Trump's affair with the porn star. MSM also claims the affair happened during the first year his marriage with Melania and a few months after the birth of son Barron. How bizzare is that claim? And then MSM also suggests the money may have come from campaign funds.

How does MSM even think of these lies?

Transcript of Trump's speech on Parkland High School shooting.

Number of media outlets focusing on Trump weakening gun laws last year by signing a bill or him saying people should have spoke up about the shooter and his desire to be a school shooter.

Trump blamed for school shooting by MSM. The mantra being pushed by the MSM was that Trump made it easier for mentally ill to buy guns.
It was that bill that was supported by the ACLU where it you were judged no longer able to manage your money, they could take your guns away. Congress passed it, Trump signed it.

Jimmy Kimmel said on his show last night that Trump was mentally ill.
