^ I understand being objective, but you do come across as defending him a bit when he really does not deserve an inch of leeway. Believe me-- I want him to do well. I'm not an idiot-- I live here and I don't want to die. Yet, he makes it impossible to support him. In all of his time in office so far, he has not bothered responding to any of the hate crimes, any of protests, any of the people who are afraid--- yet he has had the time to tweet about the media bullying him, about Saturday Night Live not being funny anymore, about the Hamilton audience not being "fair" and how it's not a great show. He insulted the United Nations this week, who then had to tweet a response saying all of the great it does for the world every day (which it absolutely does). It's just... it's just... (I feel like Stella here)... it's just UNFATHOMABLE!!!
Today he tweeted about how smart Putin is, after Obama announced sanctions against Russia. He also refuses to acknowledge Russia playing any part in the election, and says it's time to "move on"-- even though it's completely acceptable for every American to panic over this alleged relationship.
I mean, how long does this go on for? Him lying to everyone's faces and getting away with it? Side-stepping every question and distracting from the truth? Things have got to get better...
Well, I'm 'sorry' if you think I'm defending him. However, I speak as I find. If (for example) I hated you and thought you were a fool but said something that I still thought was correct or valid point, I'd concede it. It wouldn't mean I like you. I do this with FOMM, I do in real life, I do in politics. I do actually agree with Trump about NATO for example - much of the world is taking the piss with America regarding it and its a wonderful organisation that has done so much for the world (and is mainly down to America, to which we owe them a great debt).
Does that mean I think Trump makes a good president or has many good policies? No. But I will give him a point if he makes a valid one.
His Twitter (as you mention) is precisely another issue that just makes me groan. I was looking through it yesterday and he's so unrefined in his messaging. So damn amateur. Say what you want about Hilary but she behaved like a president on and off her Twitter. Her composure and restraint was what I expect in a leader. Trump can't undo his sour, negative campaign but he could be stepping up to the honour now he's won. Its a shambles and yes, America deserves better. At this stage I'm just waiting/hoping for him to shut up and knuckle down to something productive when in office - like, if he thinks he can improve America's economy and decrease unemployment then he should get to it.
