Well now you're comparing apples to oranges.

You said, "ORANGE MAN BAD AT BUSINESS?" I (we) simply pointed out that he's made billions so how bad do you really think he is at his business?

Now you are saying that if I (we) think a billionaire...blah blah blah....then you need to...blah blah blah..."

The two concepts are entirely different and, in this case, separate.

Whether or not I think he's a good or bad businessman has no bearing on whether or not I think a businessman and outsider a good leader makes.

Furthermore, in your first meme you are actually supporting the idea that he is a good businessman. What you are really saying to us is, "OK, he is a good businessman but now I'll get you by saying you're stupid if you think that just because he's a good businessman he's a good leader."

Sorry, but you have failed with your silliness.

Are rich con-artists and scammers good businessmen?

Not saying he is. Though I might say he's more like the Schrodinger's cat of presidents.

I guess it depends on your perspective....he's got the money in his bank. I certainly don't respect cons & scammers but some of his dealings have obviously been legit.

It's been shown multiple times that if he had just invested the money he got from his father in the S&P he's be worth 3-5x what he's worth today. That makes him a bad businessman

If my dad gave me $400M+ thirty years ago, I'm pretty sure I'd be a billionaire too. Without 3 bankruptcies.

We only know what he says he is worth. I suspect it will be much less if his tax returns become public. He is great at hype and playing to his image. The issue now is that the tactics that worked in private business do not work so well in government.

You?ve touched on the Trump trait that I dislike the most. His hype it up persona and his incredible vanity are fine for his personal business but leave that shit at the (White House) door. I had expected, or at least hoped, that he?d roll into the presidency and start to clean up DC with a much more humble demeanor. Instead he?s like a stumbling 12-stepper alcoholic and he just can?t put down the stupid fucking twitter button. I think he also had a big wake up call about how the actual Washington cesspool establishment truly works.

Bingo. However, after watching his speech the other night I can't help but think his demeanor would have been toned down if it weren't for the constant nagging of the lefts' media. Trump just couldn't rise above it. Shame really.

LOL.

Trump makes crazy statements because, "the lefts' media" made him do it. Really? He has the emotional intelligence of a 12 year old? That's your position?

I guess the lefty media made him say Mexicans are rapists at his very first presser when running for prez.

Did you sneak into my head and steal my words?

Funny how he didn't drain the swamp - he filled it: Scott Pruitt, Wilbur Ross, Ryan Zinke, Tom Price, Ben Carson, Steve Mnuchin...

Speaking about crazy statements, how about that logic that makes you time and time again misinterpret this statement and force it to be something it's not. If the left media says orange man bad, orange man bad.

GMA this morning reported on the story that Trump is a Russian Agent. I shit you not, I heard it with my own ears. Loony bins.

He confused "they" and "some". For example, concerning priests, some are rapists, not they. Anyways, evidence of racist hate-mongering, innocent mistake, or incompetence? hmm

Either way, pretty bad for a President with "the greatest mind!"

That said, He's doubled (if not 3x, 4x at this point )down on his original statement (See @ 1:00), so...

If Trump is so dumb (according to Scott) how did he manage to pull the greatest cover up in American history, run a successful presidential campaign and get elected while being a Double KGB Russia Agent, aka Putins puppet?

We have reached laughable levels in Main stream journalism folks. For 5 points, Is it SNL or CNN?

Why is that? Because the government can't go to jail?
