Does anyone else laugh anytime Trump speaks? I don't mean in a mocking way, more in a what a bad ass kinda way?

Last night I saw an interview with Laura Ingraham and I couldn't help but laugh when he called Pelosi nervouse Nancy.

Trump just cracks me up. Again not in a mocking way, I don't find him funny because he is an idiot.

Not surprising, the guy has over 10 years of experience as a TV personality. His shows wouldn't have lasted that long if he wasn't good at entertaining people.

I don't think he's an idiot though. Bush was an idiot. But you don't build an empire like Trump has done by being an idiot.

When they televise his rallies, he definitely knows how to play up his base.

I used to laugh all the time during the debates when he just torched people

Yep, dude is hilarious. He's highly entertaining and speaks his mind. He wasn't in the entertainment biz for a long time for nothing. He knows exactly what he's doing.

He sounds like a walking accident waiting to happen.
It's just barely possible, I suppose, that a billionaire with over 40 years of high-stakes, high-pressure business experience and a stable of supermodel wives...knows some things about life that you don't know.

With you 100% OP. President Trump has broken the mold and to anyone that's TDS'ing they are missing out on a heckuva guy. We'll never have another one like him.

Trump!
TRump!!
TRUMp!!!
TRUMP!!!!

I used to regard Boris Johnson as the very definition of the word "Buffoon". Until I saw his ascent and tactics in politics more clearly.

I think there is considerable value in having your competitors and critics underestimate you.

Obviously, it's a tightrope to walk but in the case of Trump and Boris their current positions speak for themselves.

That is more a reflection of those people. Says a lot about their own intelligence.
The Moon - Trump's ‘of which the moon is part’ phrasing about Mars raises eyebrows

^ This is currently trending on Twitter. I can see it despite have my own trends for the people I follow which is only related to video games. Nothing to do with Politics. Talk about a bias agenda.

One thing I really hate is how these days the MSM use a few tweets to make a story. Wouldn't surprise me if they staged those tweets in the first place. The internet is increasingly becoming a good way to bypass the MSM bullshit. No wonder the UK government want to censor the internet. The porn reason is just a ruse.

Trump is an entertainer. And also a typical businessman that bullshits a lot and beats his chest.

I think he’s street smart, but I don’t think he’s an intelligent person. Intelligent people don’t conduct themselves like Trump does. He’s a very poor speaker, and seems to suffer from rattling thoughts when he speaks or tries to convey a point.

A leftist admitting they don't know everything... :messenger_tears_of_joy:

That's a good laugh

Looks like your whole try not to be a dick thing lasted but a few hours
Did you actually buy that crap?

I love that it triggers so many people. Liberal woman care more about what Trump says than their own husbands.

Yep and Twitter seems to think he thinks the Moon is part of Mars. I knew there was something in what he said.
That is because Twitter is retarded. Any human expansion into the solar system, beyond publicity stunts like the original moon landing, will need some stable operation on the moon. The only other alternative is a space station large enough to act as a hub or base, and that is not yet feasible. Really, any station like that would need the moon for construction.

But if Nasa is saying they need human exploration of the moon to prepare for a mission to mars, why is he complaining then? Makes no fucking sense.
Because the focus does not need to be "going to the moon", but establishing a base there. He is speaking like a high level corporate manager.

I can’t help but laugh, everytime I hear someone say he is a “stable genius “ or “bad ass”.

I didn’t think there were people who were naive enough, to think such things about Captain Lawsuits and Bankruptcies, but here we are.

Oh, yes. Trump makes me burst out laughing all the time. I really disliked Trump prior to him becoming the president. But now I've warmed up to him. I really enjoy listening to him rail against the legacy media. He's so condescending and dismissive, that New Yorker accent and attitude, and it gets under their skin. But they have to keep talking to him or about him because he prints money for them. I love it!

The latest one I watched was him and Theresa May. The difference was staggering. Trump was in a foreign country, but you'd swear HE was the prime minister and May was just there to introduce him.

And of course he made fun of the British media while he was there. He told everyone the truth about Sadiq Khan, that piece of garbage. All the while complimenting the British people and offering a trade deal.

Honestly, Trump is far from perfect. But I really like him and I'm going to vote for him in 2020.

The best thing is, every tweet by President Donald Trump will be saved for posterity in the Donald Trump Presidential Library.

We won't even need the internet archive to enjoy the shit-poster-in-chiefs output.

Trump as a troll has grown on me.


He's not always great, or always funny, but he has moments of sheer brilliance.

He is part stand up comedian for sure. That the left can't tell the difference between when he's joking and when he's serious never gets old.

What many of his detractors don’t realise, even the likes of Ben Shapiro, is that many of his oafish characteristics are intentional to: a) endear himself to the common man, and b) goad his opponents into criticising him for trivial, petty things. His manner of speaking is deliberate, make no mistake. So too is his use of fake tan — it goads his opponents into criticising him on the colour of his skin and revealing themselves as hypocrites to any neutral observers. Causing your opponents to stumble over themselves has proven to be a more effective tactic than traditional politicking.

I can imagine his best tweets framed in lavish, gilded frames.

Unless Trump has a secret Gaf account I am not aware of. But nobody on Gaf misspells that many words so I think it's safe to say he doesn't.

Celeb status- media personality. Why do you think Trumpy worked on TV as the serious Boss Man? Of course he's a 'funny' man- humour is one way the powerful control their underlings.

Here's the funny thing. Obama beat Clinton cos he had many of the same personality traits as Trump. Clinton is a po-faced cow. When she laughs, everyone else draws breath in repulsion. But the faux serious statesman that works so well with the average yank dumb dumb is challenged by an alpha media (TV) personality type. The newscaster or the quiz show host. A warm funny personality with an edge.

Obama literally led the way for Trump.

Surface personality matters for dumb dumbs. I mean these voters are hardly likely to engage higher thinking powers when choosing whom to vote for. I mean 99.9% of voters think the parties of the left and right are actually opponents- and you don't get thicker than that.

The issue for the party machines is *not* Trump as such, but that their current machines don't have Trump types waiting in the wings. Instead they're still coasting on ideas of ideal candidates now long out of touch with current voters.

Look at the current garbage being offered by the democrat party. In fairness, the democrats are trying to *lose* the next election to ensure Trumpy's second term. But what then? The election after next will be very interesting in terms of who exactly runs for each major party.

Given the dreadful chain of Human garbage the Americans have elected president in the past, Trump is probably far better than average, and that's a depressing thought.

If you want to criticise others for incorrect spelling, maybe get your own grammar in order first. It’s GAF not Gaf.

This is a good example of why I laugh at him. It's not from being a bad-ass, or from being an idiot; because he's neither.

I laugh at him because he seems utterly incapable of completing a few sentences in a row.
"He made such a fool out of himself, the last time she- because what people..." is just so typical of how he talks.

When he was campaigning, my friends and I made a drinking game: Every time Trump interrupts himself, you have to take a drink. Needless to say, I remember very little from those debates.
I wouldn't dare play the same game nowadays. We'd all end up dead from alcohol poisoning.

Honestly, I urge anybody out there to post a video where Trump, as president, speaks in a coherent manner. I don't think such a thing exists.

I'm not saying he's an idiot, or a bad-ass, or anything at all. But I am claiming that he is unable to form more than a handful of complete sentences in a row.
And that's not even a bad thing. Tons of people speak off-the-cuff and just let their thoughts spill out in a free-form style. It's pretty normal, actually.
But you have to admit it's really funny to hear that kind of thing on television, especially from celebrities; and super-especially from a celebrity-president.

Listening to that man takes me back to that awful time. Makes me shudder. But hey, at least Trump can get his point across. I don't think anybody has tried to throw a shoe at him.
