donny had them sized up from the start. it's what he does. it's what he always done. a conman knows his mark:
I do wonder if he was aware of how intense and tightly-controlled that universe was/is. I think that most of us didn't, even though it was freakin' right in front of us. Even many elected Republicans don't appear to have seen it. He surely knows the power of the media, and he fit right in.

If he didn't know on Escalator Day, I reckon he figured it out pretty quickly. Hence his "Shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue" comment. These people were tailor-made for a person who is consumed by a need to be loved & admired.

Fucking incredible. It's still difficult to believe this happened here.

Yes, that's what I'm talking about. Until 2009 he was in the Democratic Party, this fucking leftist, the American people got fucked.

he's not a 'lefist ' nor a true (R) ... donny doesn't have any loyalty to anybody or anything & has always been about donny.

& getting him into office has proven why america got fucked, because he did what he has always done - looked out for what & who can benifit himself. the way he handled the pandemic was the worst. he didn't care that 100softhousands of people died while he ignored the disease, simply because of how it would have reflected on him & wall st panicking.

Trump is a populist. He neither a conservative nor a real Republican.
BUT so many of his policies were great and successful that we Republicans love him.
Which ones were those:
Cancelling the CDC Global response team

Leaving the TPP, leaving China to take over and set up the largest trading block in the world...
Note: He said he was leaving it because China were getting too much, China weren't in the TPP

The wall wasn't built and Mexico didn't pay for it..

Trump biggest success was a tax cut for the rich which wasn't paid for...

Don’t forget, Trump was a great Democrat as well. Democrats and Liberals loved Trump and his checks for years. During that time, never heard about Democrats having issue with Trump’s alleged racism and sexism.

For 99% of trump's life, trump was a New York Democrat.

trump never got along with the Republican party when he was president. Republicans only gave trump 2 things, tax cuts for rich people and the gutting of the IRS so that the IRS couldn't collect taxes from rich people. And the only reason Republicans gave trump that is because they wanted it too.

donny pretty much stopped contributing to the (D) party after obama humiliated him at the correspondence dinner in 2011.

Trump is a criminal conman. The greatest who ever lived, since he conned his way into the Oval Office.

But his policies crashed the economy, destroyed your trade deals and military alliances, and he killed half a million people in the pandemic, through incompetence and chaos. Only a fool thinks he did a good job.

Correll - you disagree? would you like to provide PROOF that 'ol ike DIDN'T

say to beware of the military industrial complex

WASN'T pro union

there WASN'T a 90% tax rate

OR

could it be you don't know squat & are showing yer poorly educated side... yet again?


The concept of the MIC as an organized force controlling national policy was debunked by the defense spending crash after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Ike might have had a reasonable fear at that point in time, but now, looking back, we can see it was overstated.

Trump ran on issues that the mainstream parties were ignoring. Issues that large portions of the voters wanted addressed.

Specifically Trade and Immigration.


That was not a con. That was him seeing them dropping the ball and him picking it up and running with it.


You are the fool.

lol ... ask all the trump humpers bending over & grabbing their ankles trying to defend him. why don't you start with the OP - who DESPITE donny being the losing loser who lost the presidency - starts a thread with TRUMP smack in the middle of the title.

LOL!!!!!



neh'eh ... that would be the OP AND all the little basket dwellers eager to jump on that bandwagon with praise for their dear leader.




& yet, here YOU are... defending him like nobody's biz'nez.... ...

Ike might have had a reasonable fear at that point in time, but now, looking back, we can see it was overstated.

you forgot to address these 2 points:

being pro union:

The record of performance of the Republican Administration on behalf of our working men and women goes still further. The Federal minimum wage has been raised for more than 2 million workers. Social Security has been extended to an additional 10 million workers and the benefits raised for 6 1/2 million. The protection of unemployment insurance has been brought to 4 million additional workers. There have been increased workmen's compensation benefits for longshoremen and harbor workers, increased retirement benefits for railroad employees, and wage increases and improved welfare and pension plans for federal employees.

In addition, the Eisenhower Administration has enforced more vigorously and effectively than ever before, the laws which protect the working standards of our people.

Workers have benefited by the progress which has been made in carrying out the programs and principles set forth in the 1952 Republican platform. All workers have gained and unions have grown in strength and responsibility, and have increased their membership by 2 millions.

Furthermore, the process of free collective bargaining has been strengthened by the insistence of this Administration that labor and management settle their differences at the bargaining table without the intervention of the Government. This policy has brought to our country an unprecedented period of labor-management peace and understanding.

We applaud the effective, unhindered, collective bargaining which brought an early end to the 1956 steel strike, in contrast to the six months' upheaval, Presidential seizure of the steel industry and ultimate Supreme Court intervention under the last Democrat Administration.


The Eisenhower Administration will continue to fight for dynamic and progressive programs which, among other things, will:

Stimulate improved job safety of our workers, through assistance to the States, employees and employers;

Continue and further perfect its programs of assistance to the millions of workers with special employment problems, such as older workers, handicapped workers, members of minority groups, and migratory workers;

Strengthen and improve the Federal-State Employment Service and improve the effectiveness of the unemployment insurance system;

Protect by law, the assets of employee welfare and benefit plans so that workers who are the beneficiaries can be assured of their rightful benefits;

Assure equal pay for equal work regardless of Sex;

Clarify and strengthen the eight-hour laws for the benefit of workers who are subject to federal wage standards on Federal and Federally-assisted construction, and maintain and continue the vigorous administration of the Federal prevailing minimum wage law for public supply contracts;

Extend the protection of the Federal minimum wage laws to as many more workers as is possible and practicable;

Continue to fight for the elimination of discrimination in employment because of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry or sex;

Provide assistance to improve the economic conditions of areas faced with persistent and substantial unemployment;

Revise and improve the Taft-Hartley Act so as to protect more effectively the rights of labor unions, management, the individual worker, and the public. The protection of the right of workers to organize into unions and to bargain collectively is the firm and permanent policy of the Eisenhower Administration.

Republican Party Platform of 1956 | The American Presidency Project

& a 90% tax rate:

Eisenhower proved higher tax rates could work

Dave PEYTONJanuary 31, 2019

President Dwight David Eisenhower, perhaps the last real Republican, had a 90 percent tax rate for the super rich during his administration.

Eisenhower explained it this way: The super rich could avoid the high taxes by investing their money in things that make America stronger. If they wanted to avoid high taxes, he said they could invest in business expansions and higher employee wages. They could give a million or two to tax-exempt non-profits that feed, house and clothe poor people of America, among other things.
Eisenhower proved higher tax rates could work | AP News

^^^ a REAL (R). ^^^


can you prove otherwise? the 50s/60s were the most prosperous time in our history & a bigley chunk of that was due to his policies.

Trump didn't register to vote until he was 45. Trump just needs to be the center of attention 24/7.
