That was me paraphrasing your childish response to criticism of your country and your conman-in-chief. Since reading (and understanding) appears a bit hard for you (esp. satire), let me repeat it:
I get it, you hate the prez of another country more successful than the one you inhabit (...)
Kindergarten-level argumentation. At best. And I've seen it used here before...

Thanks for an actual thoughtful response, not just simplistic spew, which you surely see is most of what the world gets in rapid fire.  So much so, I think people are completely numbed and dumbed.  I took some time to read from your volumes of postings b4 I spoke directly to you.  I would say that your heart is in the right place.  I would also say that idealism was far more fun before I had to earn a living and I am not one who thinks the government should/could support all of us. But I do think I should damn well make good on its debts and entitlements for millions... going on too long, you'll accuse me of chattyism any second LOL... But seriously, think long and hard where the money comes from and what happens when it runs out and how we as a people can be more efficient and effective and certainly more respectful, myself included.

I didn't know expecting a President to be competent, prepared, informed, diligent, other-regarding, inclusive and (relatively) honest was a sign of idealism. Silly me. I'm worried that if I buy into your version of realism, though, I'd lose too many points off my IQ.

But seriously, think long and hard where the money comes from now that Trump signed a $1.5 trillion tax cut that benefits the richest 0.1% far more than the rest of us.

Or did you forget that moment of winning{#Ask}

You should have those folks post on the RP board! In this thread! Because I doubt that you and I have much more to say to each other.

Seems you have real trouble sticking to one subject. And apparently you (still) don't like your president or your country being criticized. All and all a bit sensitive, with a propensity to lash out with rather childish arguments (you're just jealous!) when you don't approve of something (and there seem to be a lot of things you don't approve of either in your current guise or your previous ones). So by all means keep pretending you're above it all while being just some victimized newcomer (again and again and again). You're a waste of space and time. See you in your next reincarnation which will be just as apparent as the previous ones.
 
In the mean time, enjoy this (again):

Is that where you live?  Cuz I desperately hope somehow we may be able to relocate one day...
Have you watched that series One Strange Rock? (National Geographic) OMG, I don't have words to provide sufficient endorsement, but I keep telling family and friends (even strangers lol) over and over to even $pend on Amazon Prime if no cable (like me).  I learned so very much, including about future hope of living on other planets.  But back to our own planet and, MY country, and I get it, you hate the prez of another country more successful than the one you inhabit, and you can't vote there, so you just invest major effort to spew more and more hatred, then maybe those who CAN vote will see the world through your eyes and rise up and change it all?  Worth a try (P.S. If we could all just change such things so easily, it woulda happened already, there's this nagging problem called reality). But please DO TRY reaching straight out to DJT.  He has been known to actually read and reply to tweets from randoms (ESPECIALLY foreigners!) so why not?  What's the worst that could happen?  I keep playing LOTTO, though I hear it's not the best bet in town... we all need to take chances at times.  Talk is cheap.


 

Having read about and lived with a great deal of Presidents, I expect that a competent POTUS would take the office with a broad and deep base of knowledge and a set of accomplishments that would help him/her take on the job. I also expect that a President would have the skills and determination to unite Americans, to improve and maintain our alliances, to stand fast against our enemies while holding out the offer of reconciliation or detente. A President should understand the limits of his/her power and work with the other branches of government to make the US a better and safer place to live. It might be a lot to ask that the POTUS isn't a raging egomaniac, but we shouldn't have to read/hear the President rant like a spoiled bully about "The Wonders of Me."

Trump doesn't meet any of my expectations. Not even at a fractional level. He is lazy, uninformed, incompetent, narcissistic, thin-skinned, incapable of working on complex subjects in a sustained manner, incapable of working seriously with others and incapable of changing his mind when his opinions don't agree with facts. I strongly suspect that Trump colluded with the Russian government or that Vladimir Putin has some very nasty information about him. Trump is afraid of Putin.  


AND TRUMP LIES ALL THE TIME. OFTEN WITHOUT GOOD REASON. 
   

Many top-level people on his own staff, the folks who work with him every day, think that he's an idiot and a blowhard.  My take on his base is that most of these supporters don't understand or follow the federal government very much and aren't very concerned about the consequences of Trump's behavior. They want the reality-show craziness that Trump brings...or will until their wallets get hurt. 

So that's my take. Oh, btw: my apologies to you if you're just a chatbot. They've popped up on this forum a few times...
