Long Live President Trump! (Under several heavy boulders!)
Long Live the USA! (Under new management.)
I respect him as much as any person should respect this absolute cretin who walked in on the ladies changing in the Miss Universe pageant to oogle them and make uncomfortable remarks while he's 40+ and married with children. Frankly, I'm surprised he managed to sire children.
I respect him as much as anyone should respect someone who manages to bankrupt an entire Casino resort in the 1990s to the tune of nearly a billion dollars. Somehow.
I respect him as much as someone should for calling the system that got him elected broken when the previous election had the president win though both the electoral vote and the popular vote, when his win was a complete and utter farce of a fluke due to a massive flaw of a system that honestly should have been retired posthaste when better systems were invented
and utterly failed to account for the manifest destiny and growth of the empire/Republic.
I respect him as much as someone should respect someone who whines of clean wind power because there happens to be a turbine near his golf course even though he allegedly has enough money to just sell that course and buy off some schlepper's land in a better location. Even though I think his financial empire is largely a paper tiger.
I respect him as much as someone should when he claims to "drain the swamp", and then his cabinet picks are more along the lines of bogs, loos, and more of the very same swamp he claimed to be draining.
If I'm ever asked to write a history book, I'll leave a blank spot when it comes to him and when asked or pressed, I'll just say that the USA chose soft anarchy for four years. It'd be better than having to explain that the people of the USA "chose" him because that would just bring up several questions and plotholes.
all the praying and religious stuff during the ceremony feels so weird.
Is that normal procedure during inauguration ?
Welcome to the USA, where the "Separation of church and state" is something we actually have to make a point of pressing thanks to evangelicals.
