Trumps argument is those standards are outdated and toxic

*or at least the system they've created is such

No. His argument is that Fox and Friends is good media, whereas CNN is bad. His concern isn't for a change in standards, but whether or not the outlet is friendly to him.

Yes, you would expect him to ascribe good intentions to media that slanders him? You've never been the center of a negative press piece

Being slandered and being the center of negative press aren't necessarily the same things things.

Well let's hope he can keep perspective when faced with criticisms from foreign leaders, or the courts, or civil rights institutions. He's the most powerful leader on the face of the planet, he owes it to every one to act with some degree of dignity and reserve. The most powerful man on earth is really doesn't need to be a vengeful prick, it's something beyond white or rich privilege to pretend that he's being persecuted by scrutiny

Trump has been back and forth from bankruptcy, built major companies, major structures, runs a major enterprise, conducted a SUCCESSFUL major campaign AGAINST the establishment (who the media was in the corner for, undeniably). But you doubt his ability to conduct himself for the successful interests of the United States?

The public voted against decorum and dignity in 2016, Trump won, now he's acting like it, going about business the way he knows how.

Of course I doubt him. Only a naive fan boy or mindless party drone is assured that a president will be good at his job before he's done it.

I'm curious at your comments at the end of conversations.

We've got


Neither mean anything at all. Are you just trolling?

Should I just block you?

I have no idea what quiht means and the internet didn't help.

"I think enough intellectuals are hellbent on destroying this man's power that we can expect it to vanish in the near future."

that's a nonsense proposition, if it was true trump never would have won, so I told him to be quite.

I wrote :) to show that I am just the type of optimist you suggested

cgod  ·  1553 days ago  ·  link  ·  

are you getting quiht (a nonsense word), quiet (to be silent) and quite (to show agreement) confused. I know I'm confused at what you are trying to express.
