Trump MAGAThread III: Steak, Vodka, Casinos, and America

First thread.
Second thread.

Demonstrations, intelligence indicating that Russia intentionally influenced the election towards Trump, a fight with a Broadway musical, Twitter feuds with Alec Baldwin, SNL, NBC, CNN, and a union representative (the last of which resulted in death threats for the rep), a strategist with ties to right-wing extremists and Neo-Nazis, figures in his own party openly breaking ranks against him, extra money being spent to keep his family safe because they want to stay in New York, cabinet appointees who seem to want to destroy the very department they head, a National Security advisor who promulgates outlandish conspiracy theories, ratcheting up military and diplomatic tensions with China, a proposed Secretary of State so close to the Russians that he faintly smells of borscht and vodka, and so much more...and it's been just a bit over a month. Imagine what the next four years have in store for us.

Join in! Let's start by talking about the hacking scandal discussed at length in the last thread. Just what in the bejabbers is going on here, and will Trump survive unscathed, or will a pall of illegitimacy stick to his Presidency as a result?

Somehow, the Trump election is like a ball attached to a rubber cord. It keeps hitting you in the face, and you know the future is going to be a world of hurt.

If Trump wasn't so impeachment worthy, we would end up with way too many of these MAGAthreads.

Any bets on how long it will take before we hear these words "US president Mike Pence"?

Not. Fucking. Long. $50.

Also, Trump got elected, the conservatives rallied around it, and I got Gallo's quiz question wrong... 2017 is off to a rollicking good start.

Damn, the man's not even sworn in yet and Trump already produced 3 megathreads. We'll reach triple digits by the time we have the 2020 election.

He isn't even in office yet, can't really be impeached.

Not yet, but I mean it won't take long once he's in office, so we won't go 4 whole years of MAGAthreads. The man is a walking scandal.

And yet he is going to be President, after this same line being used against him the entire campaign season. The man is Teflon.

That is an accurate description of Trump's relationship with America; he is her abusive boyfriend.

Give it time. During his Presidency, people are kind of expecting him to do things and not spout adjectives.

But what of his opposition? He can just blame them for his failures and take credit for the success.

Cognitive Dissonance on this point. If no one cares, it doesn't stick. Telfon Don it is.

It certainly does stick, though, given his still dismal approval ratings. He did not get away with everything he did and win the election because most Americans didn't care. He got away with everything and won the election because a relatively small number of Americans in key states felt that Hillary Clinton's actions, both proven and alleged, were worse.

Alright. Let's play a game. List these items in the order that they will cease to exist over the next 4-8 years from first to last. Omit the one you think will not end.

The list for you to order is below. It's in no particular order now.
Donald Trump's Presidency
America's <5% unemployment rate
The Affordable Care Act
US Sanctions on Russia
Ukraine's sovereignty
NAFTA
the One China Policy
America's 11 million undocumented immigrants
Roe v. Wade


Optional over exaggerated list:
Life as we know it
Peace between the US and Mexico
Nations that oppose the Trump/ Putin world order
Freedom of speech
America's "71 years without nuking someone" streak
America's first world country status
Surviving muslims


Explanations appreciated
Also, feel free to point out if I missed anything important

Either he's full of shit, We'll hear "Once in a lifetime" in our heads, or in an unlikely but cool possibility this could turn out great.

Yep.

I knew that this would never end. Ever.

It didn't end at the election and It will only in 2020.
