    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.
    Well, that was a random meltdown post. I'm sorry I found Trump's presser to be a joke. Not everyone loves him blindly, Maggie. I don't hate the man, by the way. I don't even know him.

    I voted for George W. Bush twice and cringed at most of his pressers. I voted against Obama twice and found most of his pressers to be good. So you can keep your hysteria and hyperbole to yourself. It isn't attractive.

    Oh I left out he wouldn't let the guy from CNN ask a question called it fake news. You believe everything that comes out of Donny boy's mouth, I don't.

    Disagree with your conclusion on "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....
    Correction to my previous post: uniquely productive. If all it did was buttress what we already know about him, I could have just gone to his Twitter page.

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.
    Yes, I know. It's going to be beautiful. I heard him the first dozen times he said it.

    Who said anything about Obama and Hollywood? Not me. You should focus to the posts and not go off on tangents. It doesn't make you look good.

    I think your final comment on CNN might be on the money. Here in the NOC where I work there are screens for all of the major news networks floating above our heads, muted. I saw more Wolf Blitzer on the screen for CNN than I saw Trump, I think.

    But how someone could watch that press conference in its totality and claim that there were few questions and answers is insanely dishonest.

    But that wasn't the point of the debate - the debate wasn't if we should believe him or not, the debate was about was anything significant said during his time today. I pointed out there was. Personally, I don't believe anything anyone says all the time, but if their record is good, and so far his is, then I'm on the side of trusting what he says. Remember, I started out trusting Barack Obama, and then his record spoke for that and I now trust not a word which comes out of his mouth.

    LOL!! You guys are making yourselves look like idiots and clowns. A detailed press conference that went into detail explaining how Trump will extricate himself from Trump enterprises and maintain a separation to avoid conflict -- including the announcement that all proceeds from foreign dignitaries staying at Trump hotels and resorts will be transferred directly to the US general fund at the US treasury -- along with answering questions about the wall, repealing Obamacare, and all the questions about the CNN/Buzzfeed report and your folks pretend it wasn't productive.

    If you are going to lie you should avoid lying to people who know the truth, Cardinal.

    Why should Trump answer questions from CNN about completely unverified smear news published in a liberal blog that CNN ran with?

    Trump owns the media, which has been reduced to nothing more than a room full of pissing whores.

    Yes, it was the people in the counties. Too bad they didn't reflect the majority opinion in this country, so most of the country wouldn't hate the guy that became their president.

    Hysteria and hyperbole? Your own post defines it well. "I don't even know him." Really? I'm so surprised.


    Thank you, Quazi!
