    Can't we do both? Mock our sad president and pray for our country's leaders?

    Except, we are responsible for him.

    He was elected by us to lead our country. Everything he says and does as president is more of a reflection on ourselves than anything else.

    I don't blame Trump for being the terrible person he is, I blame us for not having higher standards.

    If I might observe, it's pretty awesome how you hadn't posted in 7 years and that fully half your posts in 8 years have been to this thread. I don't have that sort of self-control.

    Do you think any Rebublicans will challenge him?

    Alright. Here's a few things the Twitterer in Chief neglected to mention in his rant.
    2016 Democratic Party presidential debates and forums - Wikipedia
    Fox News didn't host a single DNC debate. They were scheduled to sponsor one in March, but it was cancelled.

    He also doesn't mention that the RNC pulled out of a primary debate after they didn't a CNBC run debate in 2015.

    They wouldn't have the stones to stand up to his base.

    Oh for Pete's sake, AGAIN?

    AGAIN a Trump supporter capitalizes the pronoun when referring to Trump like he's freaking GOD.

    Am I the only one who sees this? How can this many times be an accident? It isn't Trump who scares me by now; it's his followers who seem to outright revere him in ways like this.

    Christians have been mocking our president at least 8 years before Trump got in office. Now that Trump's in office Christians should stop now.

    If the DNC follows though with their blocking Fox news, would he be wrong to do the same?

    Criticizing a president's policies is not the same as mocking the president. Obama had plenty of policies to criticize.

    Look to see how many Obama bashing threads are on this forum. Then compare that to how many trump bashing threads there are and tell me what you find.

    I don't think you really want to go there. You've only been a member here since 2015. 85% of your entire membership has been under Trump. Some of us who were here from 2008 to 2016 remember.

    Or were you talking about currently, which wouldn't make any sense because President Obama has been out of office for 2 years?

    Lol, I think his petulance would be advantageous to everybody else. Would be a treat it would be to have a debate without Donald there! It could be a functional political debate, not feel like a rerun of a bad reality show if Donald's off in his echo chamber at Fox and the rest of the candidates - including the Republicans challenging him for the primary - are on the networks. Thanks for sharing the great news, Bob.

    Well, I can tell you that there are more Trump bashing threads on this forum in the last two years than the total Obama threads to date. What does that tell you?

    What do you mean by "to date"? Because if you mean since you joined CF, then yeah, Trump has been in office while President Obama has not so it doesn't surprise me that there would be more Trump threads overall (positive or negative).

    If you mean since President Obama started his campaign in 2007, that's laughably and demonstrably false.

    Just do a search for threads with the name trump in the title and the treads with Obama in the title. I was a incorrect in saying that there are more trump threads but I am not that far off. Since the beginning of Christian Forums, there was 268 threads with Obama's name in the title. In the relatively short period of three years, Trump has racked up 242 threads. Even then, most of the Obama threads were about his failed policies and not about bashing him as a person.

    There's obviously going to be more Trump bashing threads since he's president right now so I don't really get what kind of point you're trying to make here.

    Trump is terrified of debates.

    Perhaps not -- pretty much Donald's entire policy has been "run and hide" under the pretense of "America first."
