Coolidge was merely inadequate. There is s difference between a villain and a buffoon

Not the slavering conservatard prototype Reagan was.

He also displayed a cavalier disregard for, uh, you know, the Bill of Rights, in direct.violation of his oath.

Buchanan?

Nah.

Except for Nixon, no previous American president had ever been truly bad, mere inadequate to various, sometime prodigious, degrees. Nixon was bad, But even when compared to the sum total of nixon's badness over 5 years, trump's badness over just 6 days is ready on a altogether more heroic scale.

One name: Warren G. Harding.

Harding had the good sense to not govern at all, to say nothing of not building walls or set nuclear policy via twitter.

Given that neither nukes nor Twitter were extant, that's an incomplete comparison. And I'll be very surprised if Trump can govern himself, much less a country. And finally, the possibilities for corruption at Trump's disposal entirely eclipse Harding's, who is widely regarded as the most corrupt President in American history.

These numbers aren't surprising. The media has been propagandising against him hard since he announced his candidacy was announced. They threw in bed with Clinton and now their doubling down.

Of course the wall with Mexico ain't helping, that's retarded. But on the plus he killed tpp which had some weird laws in it.

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

He may not be able to govern, but he seems determined to maximize damage.  Harding hardly showed any similar resolve.

Pence is unrelectable if trump is impeached during his first term.  So the republicans will not impeach trump.

That's why the gods created mid-term elections.

Quote:Republics like to wear the flag in the cracks of their asses like g strings, but majority of them wouldn't hesitate for a microsecond to sell out any core interest of this country if they think doing so would confer temporary partisan advantage.  That's been true and blazingly clear since 1994.

1994?!?

Wow, a conservative polling company finds out that 59 percent of conservatives approve of Trump. What a shock!

Actually it's a relatively low number in that case
