  1. I'm judging using principles and standards learned from a (very) tough university public speaking course I took. I doubt the professor would give Trump a good grade, either. Likely a 'C'. He has trouble with some basics.
  2. "The real deal behind the 94 million Americans Trump says are out of work": President Trump cited a misleading statistic to cast the job market as weaker than it truly is. "Tonight, as I outline the next steps we must take as a country, we must honestly acknowledge the circumstances we inherited. Ninety-four million Americans are out of the labor force," Trump said Tuesday night. Here's the real deal on that stat: Some 95.1 million people are not in the labor force, but the vast majority of them don't want a job, according to the most recent quarterly data from the Atlanta Federal Reserve. Some 44.1 million are retired, 15.4 million are disabled, 12.9 million are taking care of a family member and another 15.5 million are in college or job training. They are listed as not wanting a job. About 5.5 million Americans are either marginally attached to the job market -- people who are not in the labor force who have looked for a job in the past year -- or want a job but stopped looking over a year ago. [...]
  3. Grading Trump on his own merits probably an 'A', but comparing to say, Reagan or Obama, a 'C'. Trump isn't in the same league as these two.
  4. I just watched it, I think people are being relative. I mean, compared to his last rally where he dressed like a Miami Vice villain and yelled what's in his teleprompter, I guess it was 'good'. On Foxnews Chris Wallace said Trump became POTUS tonight, separately on CNN Van Jones said the same thing, but with tears in his eyes. We'll see how long Trump can hold onto this 'presidential' thing, he might even get an approval number bump from it. By itself, it's just an average speech appropriate for the venue.
  5. Trump grades himself a 'C' for communicating
  6. WaPo, "The ‘Kellyanne Conway on the couch’ controversy is so incredibly dumb": [...] The simple fact is that this is a totally contrived “controversy” born of some people's blind hatred for Conway and, by extension, Trump and his White House. There is simply no “there” there. Conway was on the sofa to try to get a good angle to snap a photo. It's not indicative of anything, or revealing of anything. It's just someone trying to take a photo. [...]
  7. A warning? Lol, that's funny. When you actually take the time to look at that video you'll see it has nothing to do with Trump being a narcissist or sociopath, which I very clearly stated in the original post. When you do, get back to me.
  8. Trump is not a sociopath. That video had nothing to do with him being a narcissist or sociopath. Like I said, the title was clickbait but the video was a good documentary with the title, "Trump - What's the Deal" from 1991.
  9. Gonna take a guess that you didn't watch the video. But I agree that the OL readers are not idiots, they can watch the video and use their independent judgment, unclouded by Trump Worship. Enjoy!
  10. So how did Trump build those 'buildings that don't fall down'? This 1991 Documentary, "Donald Trump - What's the Deal," provides some illumination. The Youtube title is clickbait, but the documentary itself is the above title. And guess who appears throughout the video multiple times? None other than Tony Schwartz. Enjoy!
  11. This also strikes me as good. Thanks, yea absolutely. Googling a bit more from what I mentioned above about Bush, I found that Bill Clinton signed the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000, apologies if this is information you already know. Here is more information about its history, from the page: The Trafficking Victims Protection Act was subsequently renewed in 2003, 2006, 2008 (when it was renamed the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008). The law lapsed in 2011. In 2013, the entirety of the Trafficking Victims Protection was attached as an amendment to the Violence Against Women Act and passed.[2] So combined with Trump's efforts, I think one can induct that all modern US Presidents have initiatives against human trafficking. When I worked around law enforcement and the courts at the local level, top priority for them was going after child sex crimes, this was placed over going after drugs. (And they caught a lot of bad guys.) I don't recall POTUS ever being the cause.
  12. Bush signed one in 2006.
