    Man, I wish I had the ambition that President Trump has. That stern look he had while taking what they all were dishing it out to him gives me goosebumps everytime I watch. I shudder to even conceive of the feeling that one would have after being invited to a Party and being the butt of Everyone's jokes. But he, THE Donald didn't shrink to a potato and become a recluse after this thorough humiliation. Instead he took the brickbats thrown at him and built a foundation of what would become the most innovative presidential campaign in the history of the united states.
    He bulldozed every other claimant to the throne, of his own party. He then did the unthinkable by crushing Hillary, Hillary, a candidate backed by Obama, the Entire media machinery, the Hollywood etc.
    Boy, how can a person have such a drive and belief in oneself!!
    Namaste Trump - from India

      He didn't believe in his self; he believed in Russia and what he does best.. the con game.

    Too bad the goading just provoked Trump into make his Presidency bid a reality. Just shows he can't take jokes - or maybe even understand them.

    LMFAO I love how pissed Trump looks. Honestly I didn't even realise he ran for president in 2012. I can't believe what a massive bullet we dodged back then, and how hard we've been hit by it now.

  • UFOs not Religion

    I love how powerful Trump looks, in the face of assholes from the left, and their canned laughter.. How he internalized it and triumphed... A truly iconic moment for a great man.. First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.... Wish Canada had a leader like that... Fucking super hero like prez.

    I had a Trump tie once. Once... Trump's face and the scorn and malevolence in his glare says EVERYTHING about what one needs to know about him. If you can't laugh at yourself-don't go to the White House Correspondence dinner and that's why President Thump never goes... white Fragility. Dishes it out canโ€™t take it.

    Can the big issue be whether or not to pass a Constitutional Amendment

    advertise their Jewishness, such as Stephen Miller, Conan O'Brien, and
