Because he's suppose to be a fucking adult stepping into the highest office in the land. If he can't take criticism or mockery its going to be a rough 4 years for him. He can't even rise above god damn SNL poking fun at him. You need to have tough skin to be president. At the very least you need to pretend to be an adult in public. Both of these are beyond Trump.

Nevermind the fact that Trump rode the Obama isn't a legitimate president birther meme for YEARS so this is hypocritical as shit of him. Plus Obama had the grace and maturity to not, you know, go off on a late night Twitter rant at him like a spoiled 12 year old girl.

So Trump can fuck right off on this one.

Lewis said he does not see Trump as a legitimate president due to Russia's interference in the election ( Something even Trump has been forced to finally acknowledge ). That's not "insults and slander".

Insults and slander would be spending years claiming the president wasn't born in America. Or running footage of his grandmother and incorrectly translating it to say she was saying Obama was not born in America ( when she was saying the opposite ). Or claiming no hospital in Hawaii had a record of his birth ( They did. ), Or that a certificate of live birth isn't a birth certificate ( it is ). Or claiming that the birth announce in the paper was a false plant by his grandparents ( it was from the state health department ). Or that mysteriously nobody knew Obama growing up in Hawaii ( except his kindergarten teachers who were interviewed on live television ). Or that maybe he didn't really go to college ( he did ). Or that he might be a secret Muslim ( he isn't ). Or that he didn't even write his own book ( He did ).

Now that, that would be insulting and slanderous. It's a good thing no one did tha-oh wait.

=p

Runec you waste a lot of time with these idiots and now they are costing us healthcare. You can't convince them they are wrong because they don't care. They live in a fantasy world. You are a smarter guy than this and I don't really understand the effort you put into this.

They don't really care about the government, the politics, or anything of constancy except one thing - they hate the culture that Democrats and liberals are a part of.

I don't know why you bother legitimizing them by arguing with them.

I mean you are literally trying to explain why their Daddy Trump needs to act like an adult lmfao

Seriously--Gerald Ford was a reasonably competent VP, who had to put up with an entire iconic SNL season of Chevy Chase falling over his desk, just because he'd stumbled once or twice coming off of Air Force One, and the press made a big Abstract Symbol of his administration over it. You'd think he'd be a lot more PO'ed about it, but he sent Press Secretary Ron Nessen to host an episode to pretend what a good sport he was about it.
Hillary Clinton did sketches with Kate McKinnon, Bob Dole appeared with Norm MacDonald during the Clinton '96 election, and I've seen 00's interviews where GHW Bush still jokes about Dana Carvey's "Nahhgahhhduuuttt"

If you're a politician, you EXPECT to be joked about, written against, and ad hominem attacked by your rivals and detractors. That's part of the big-boy fun.
Donald Trump, by his own admission, isn't a politician, and by his actions, clearly isn't a big boy. That's why he thinks, like most non-politician 9-yo.'s, that once you're president, you're the coolest person in the world, and can send the army against any mean person who makes fun of you...Because they're NOT NICE!!

Rage, rage against the dying of the light and all that.

Its almost like something unprecedented ( sorry, unpresidented ) happened in the 2000 election.

I'm genuinely worried his petty vindictiveness may lead him to do something similar. Especially once he gets out in the world and realizes it doesn't huff his farts like the usual people he surrounds himself with.

Or because a lot of increasingly verified suspicions about negotiations with foreign countries, let alone unfriendly ones, put the results in doubt before the Inauguration had even happened.

Something that, although yet without legal precedent, actually COULD damage the legitimacy of the office-holder--
Unlike, say, Al Gore in 2000 simply saying "Okay, okay, I'll give up the draw, you can be president...", just because everyone thought he was a "bad sport".

"Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk - no action or results. Sad!"

I believe this is the tweet in question. Are we going to be here questioning the exact maturity level of this fairly simple and short comment? I mean, I don't know what you guys think adults are, but I've never managed a project where people didn't bitch about other people before buckling down and getting to work.

Anyway, it was like a year ago that I told my folks it looks like it's gonna be an election between the first woman and the first openly asshole president. His personality was never a secret, it won the votes it needed to, so it's kind of rubbish to claim that the president shouldn't have that personality. People probably voted on him precisely because he had a lot of bark and they liked that attitude. I mean, Sarah Palin once compared herself to a pit bull, so it seems like some Republicans think that a prim and proper personality might not be everyone's favorite.

Actually, there were many cases of Presidents acting prim and proper but the Vice President acting the role of the attack dog. Maybe those roles were reversed here.

But let's face it, the personality is somehow effective and enough people wanted that to represent them. What's a stereotypical American? Exactly. Great representative, we'll see how it pans out in four years.

Distract, discredit, and divide. Its just not working. People aren't buying it. Trumps negotiations with other countrcountries involved buyouts, licenses, and building buildings. Everyone knows that. Or do you mean Putin verbally endorsing Trump because he's not as stupid as Hillary?

Also you should look at the Clinton foundation. Foreign donations are down by the millions and they are doing some major layoffs. Kind of odd now that Hillary has more time to devote to philanthropy and could do a lot of good. Strange people suddenly don't want to help people in need once she is out of power.

As someone that lives in the 5th district I can sympathize with the people in this video. The conditions are terrible, those pokemon go players have taken over Piedmont Park because of the sheer amount of pokestops in the Midtown area. Sometimes it's hard to even reserve one of the tennis courts or soccer fields. Home prices have also been on the rise because of all the hoodlums who want to move here to send their kids to some of the best schools in the area, not even counting the 4-5 good Universities (literally lost count, there might be 6-7 universities here). The 5th is a warzone, pray for me please.

Well, until we can find out what was actually discussed with Putin over the phone or in person, we can assume that the election being won not only on hacking disruption, but on Trump's supporters spreading and actually believing statements that Putin had originally been broadcasting as anti-Hillary/US propaganda in his own country ("Obama created ISIS!" "The proof of corruption is in the e-mails!") down to just basic gullibility.
(IOW, imagine Trump tweeting that he had "information from top Iraqi insiders that Bart Simpson really IS sleeping with the American public's girlfriends!")

At least, a president who believes everything he's told by his trusted "insiders", because he's smug about distrusting the Outsiders when the Insiders promised to tell him about the rabbits, may not spell disaster for the country, but gullibility doesn't necessarily put election results into doubt. Just makes one look even more inexperienced.

But he threw it at a prominent civil rights leader on MLK weekend. Furthermore, the 5th District is not "falling apart" and if you back up a few years Trump was praising Atlanta:


"Atlanta is one of those cities that won’t be suffering the real estate foibles. Atlanta is like New York. New York is as hot as it ever has been," Trump said. "It’s just going to get better."


If he can't restrain himself from flailing back at every perceived criticism regardless of who, what, where or when then yes, that's pretty immature.

Why is it rubbish? The office of the president has a certain level of respect and professionalism too it. The highest level in the country, really. It should not conform to whatever fucktrumpet is elected into it. They should conform to it. This is not a reality TV show or a board meeting. The world isn't going to line up to suck his dick and tell him how great he is. Nor is the entire government going to be fawning sycophants like the regular people he surrounds himself with.

He needs to grow the fuck up and he needs to do it fast. Or he's going to end up impeached as a best case scenario. Once he's sitting at the big desk he can't be putting off the job of president to be yelling at every comedy skit that comes along on TV making fun of him.

And Christ, what if someone hacks his Twitter account? You already can't tell his Twitter account apart from a parody account.

Oh dear, I didn't realize it had gotten that bad. Lewis needs to do something! He doesn't have time to be criticizing the president. If he doesn't stave off this humanitarian crisis soon the surrounding states will be flooded with refugees.
