Favorite thing about the Trump presidency?

    Now, full disclosure, I'm not a fan of Trump's. Nor do I think that he's a good or capable president. BUT...far be it for me to be one of those that just finds negative in everything. I think there are some positives that come from his presidency.

    Primarily, it reveals how much everyone is pretty much a partisan hack and lays their true motivations bare.

    From the evangelicals, who spent so many years screaming about the importance of character and values when it came to the opposition, to now supporting someone who likely couldn't walk by a church without bursting into flames...lol Worrying about what Clinton did - but granting a pass to someone who apparently was banging a porn star shortly after the birth of his child by his third wife.

    To the "strict constitutionalists" - who lamented so much about the coequal branches of government and the duty of Congress for oversight when it was the "other guy" in office...but now want to thwart the very same kinds of oversight over "their guy"

    To the "debt worriers" - who would cry about the debt being passed to our children and fiscal responsibility when it's the other guy - but give a pass on trillions more in debt being added when it's theirs...

    ...and I could keep going... :)

    I kinda dig that we have someone that doesn't even try to mask his nonsense and provide some degree of cover for his supporters to maintain some self respect - forcing them to show where their motivations truly are.

    Maybe once his 4-8 years are done - having been laid so bare - the sensible can walk away from political parties altogether and let them die in obscurity - leaving the rational amongst us to discuss the practical issues that truly face our country.

    That's what I like best about Trump!

    How about you? lol

    I don't know. Maybe the fact that he actually BECAME president. That alone seems pretty crazy to me. When he first started campaigning to be president, I remember thinking that he wouldn't make it far. No one would support or vote for him. Boy, was I wrong.

    I'm with her. ^

    I couldn't come up with anything either. However, I will say that Tigger45 made a very good point.

    Favorite thing about the Trump presidency?

    I'm looking forward to the 2020 Election and its aftermath - once Trump realizes that he is no longer going to be re-elected, to what extremes is he willing to go to remain in office and escape the list of criminal charges that await him once he becomes a private citizen?

    It's entertaining - the time in the media has proved to be a valuable tool. Your country is getting a lot of attention because of it - but then - this generation seeks attention - it gets them listened to. On that point he has succeeded.

    If anything, I think it's shown that the sensible have already walked away, and the parties are thriving... showing that sense has little effect in politics.

    My favorite think is how his bizarre hair and tanning rituals make others around him look normal.
