We are truly in a "who knows" period. Were I Mr. Trump, I would make careful notes about how far toward insurrection the opposition is willing to go to maintain a corrupt status quo. I would also make note of them assaulting my family in public. He must remember who elected him and why. He should also be thankful for his enemies.

People over there who don't follow American politics closely, and people over here who believe in Trump, have no idea what a house of cards is under construction. W Bush was so bad he gave us our first black president. It's not unreasonable to expect the president following Trump to be an ethnic minority lesbian socialist.

And, Bob, Obama was so bad he gave you Trump!

Bob - I'll give you Bush (43) was a poor president, who looked more like a puppet of vested interests than his own man. But he left office and maintained a dignified silence.

the fact that he was followed by a man of mixed race for me was a very good thing. It looked like an opportunity for America to fix its race problem once and for all.

unfortunately Obama has been a disastrous president, possibly the worst in history, and race relations are far worse than before he came on the scene, and he is largely to blame.

And his stroppy determination to continue to play after leaving office is unworthy of anybody who aspires to be a statesman.

He is a disgrace.

Nobody can know at this stage what Trump will be like, but he cannot ever be as bad as we know Clinton would have been. So thank god she lost.

David, Clinton was so bad she gave us Trump. Obama has one of the highest approval ratings for an outgoing president in history. Concurrently, Trump has one of the lowest for an incoming president. But, you know, all the polls are rigged against him by the media, who are bad people.


Cuffleyburgers, Trump generally ran on promises to represent The Common Working Man. So far his actions belie anything of the sort. We can't know the details of what Trump will do, but a general outline is emerging. While Obama made racial tensions here more visible, he certainly did not make them worse. Look up American slavery, Jim Crow and the 1960's Civil Rights Movement just for starters.


A note to those who insist people can't be psychoanalyzed without it being in person: That notion would not be agreed to by the "profilers" working in law enforcement and intelligence.

What a speech! It was muscular, blunt and straight forward populist. It was not a conservative speech either. It was pure Trump. Both parties are put on notice.

While I watched the inauguration I surfed the net, I came across the headline "O'bama pardons "sideshow Bob". Surely not "our" Bob. Relax, it was some other Bob. Not being American I didn't understand the allusion.

I thought Mrs Trump has good taste in top coats.

So, Not Hillary has taken the oath of Office, to defend the Constitution of the United States, without purpose of evasion. After the ceremonies were completed, a nice soprano sang The Star Spangled Banner, and Mrs. Trump was seen to move her lips with the words, whether singing or simply mouthing the words, of course, I could not know. I give few people enough credit to learn the Anthem for propaganda purposes, so I am much heartened that this lady born abroad has learned "Our Song" hers and mine, too. When people have taken the Oath of Citizenship, it is customary to say, "Welcome Home."

We have a President who loves out country, along with his patriotic wife. I hope that these tears of joy do not foul up my keyboard.

Will hard times come again? In the immortal words of Sarah Palin,"You betcha!" But, for the next four years, we shall face them with a man in charge who loves his country, and does not hate us. We can, with God's help, triumph.

BOE, you are entirely right, I thought Mrs. Trump looked exceedingly elegant.

(I'll admit to "certain" misgivings generally concerning the forthcoming tweets, that "Debbie Weaselman-Schwartz, The Podesta Group, Donna Brazile and the rest of the DNC be; declared a Terrorist Organization: is, "a little bit over the top."

And I'll further admit to a further inclusion to the DSM of - what yesterday was "PPTDS (Pre-President Trump Derangement Syndrome)" which has now become "PTSD (Post Trumpatic Sad Democrats)" is probably, just like all the rest of the DMS' shit

Is, pretty much, about the same thing as former-President Obama North Korea-like *accepting on behalf of himself a military medalo* which (according to the recently former President's LGBWTFBBQ's Recommending Committee [with the voluntary abstentions of the Nobel Peace Price nominating 'whos&dos] doing, pretty close to ... about the same North Korea thang.*

Hmmm

I've shuffled away my notes. Sincere apologies. As I can:
