    The inauguration is going to be beautiful. A beautiful event. It's going to be ab-so-lute-ly beautiful. He said so. Repeatedly.

    I agree with you assessment. This much anticipated presser was pretty much a flop and a joke. I'd say get used to it. This is what Trump will do for the next 4 years.

    What? Perhaps you missed the important stuff about how he has set up his company into a trust and the intricate measures he has taken to be completely removed from any perceived conflict of interest. I was personally very impressed by those statements. And there were many, many questions asked and answered. He talked about Replace and appeal Obamacare and how the plan would be released as soon as the secretary was approved. He talked about funding the wall now vs. later and what they were doing to get this started immediately. He talked about the hospitals he's already been speaking with to support his efforts to overhaul the Veteran's health options. My goodness, you must have been listening to an entirely different news report. Maybe the Clinton News Network?

    Omg. Who ARE you guys?

    Such dishonesty. I can't even imagine why you're on this board pretending to Debate Politics. Why bother? Just hate everything Trump and come back in eight years.


    Thank you, Quazi!

    Wait... I thought it was the counties that elected Trump?

    And again, he talked about the military bands that would be performing. He talked about the crowds - this has always been - all along, about everyday Americans. I suppose you'd like it better if like Obama, it was all about wining and dining the hollywood elite? And don't forget that the media is the one who has put him on the spot about the inauguration. They don't care about this event for the people, just what famous people have turned him down. How sad? They continue to get it wrong - so wrong. Everyday Americans do not care if Carey decides to badly lip sync another performance.

    So I am guessing you didn't watch it? There were tons of questions asked and answered.

    I disagree.
    It was a significant minority of "everyday Americans" who decided to elect a reality television celebrity with no qualifications to be president.

    Have not watched it. May do so later.

    Disagree with your conclusion on not being "productive".

    While there may have been no meaningful content come out of Trump's responses, it apparently did provide another opportunity to see his character and behavior on display. And it sounds like neither of those items were particularly attractive.

    This guy (The Donald) is a potential loose cannon. And not in a good way....

    Principled people (including ones I disagree with on a large number of political issues such as Tres) recognize that Trump is a scumbag. If you thought this was just a Left thing then you're really not paying attention.
