Absolutely IDIOTIC statement. Ponderously stupid analogy.

Hitler and Mao were socialists. :lol:

This a proper thread for all "stollen" stuff.

Trump: 2 years of my term were ‘stollen’

President Donald Trump on Sunday floated the idea of extending his constitutionally limited time in office, complaining online that two years of his first White House term were “stollen” as a result of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“I now support reparations — Trump should have 2 yrs added to his 1st term as pay back for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup,” Jerry Falwell Jr., a conservative religious leader and Trump ally, tweeted in a message reposted by the president.

Trump echoed Falwell’s sentiment in a pair of tweets an hour later, writing online: “Despite the tremendous success that I have had as President, including perhaps the greatest ECONOMY and most successful first two years of any President in history, they have stollen two years of my (our) Presidency (Collusion Delusion) that we will never be able to get back.”

He added: “The Witch Hunt is over but we will never forget. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

The president’s retweets regarding an extended stay in the Oval Office follow a New York Times report on Saturday in which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was concerned that Trump would refuse to give up power in 2020 if he lost reelection by a narrow margin.

The posts also feature implicit contradictions Trump has not hesitated to repeat since Mueller submitted his report to the Justice Department in March: that it was, at once, a partisan document conceived by “18 Trump Hating Angry Democrats,” as well as a “Total EXONERATION” for the White House.
Ei ole kaikki muumit laaksossa (All the moomins are not in the valley) -- A modern Finnish proverb.

When Trump loses 2020 it is interesting to see if Trump refuses to leave the office and demands two years reparations for the "stollen" time. :roll:

Judging by the NYT report about Trump's success in business world the book "The Art of the Deal" is re-categorized as comical fiction. :lol:

As a novice--first time ever running for any public office, Trump was able to beat 16 major Republican candidates in the GOP primary, many of whom previously had run numerous successful political races. He then went on to beat a Democratic candidate who nearly every major media source and prognosticator predicted (some as late as Election Day morning) to beat Trump handily. He did that by spending a little more than half of what was spent trying to elect Hillary Clinton. And that is NOT fiction.

When was the last time a first time candidate, spending only a little more than half of what the opponent spent, was able to be elected President?

The same thought came to me when I read Nero's post. For a man who is comical and makes many people laughing, he managed well during the elections. With their Russiagate, the Democrats are more comical, to say my opinion.

White House Strikes Out With ‘World Cup Series’ Champion ‘Red Socks’ Welcome Messages

Is the White House protocol team packed with snarky Yankees fans or just people who don’t care much for the sports ball?

Either way, it ended up drawing plenty of high heat from both Boston Red Sox fans and Twitter for making not one, but two errors while trying to welcome the 2018 World Series champions to the White House.

When the White House’s first press release about the visit came out, the Boston Globe noticed a little something wrong with the team name, as it was inexplicably spelled “Red Socks” instead of “Red Sox.” It seems that having the latter sewn directly onto the home uniforms wasn’t enough of a helpful hint for the White House.

As might be expected for such a bone-headed mistake, folks on the Internet took umbrage:




After realizing that mistake, the White House issued a second press release, but this one went foul as well. In it, Trump’s staff touted the Red Sox as being something called “World Cup Series” champions, somehow conflating the championship titles for American baseball and international soccer. This too got noticed.


The team’s visit to Washington, D.C. was already fraught with controversy since only about half the team—mostly white players—chose to attend the White House ceremony and meet President Donald Trump. Many other black and Hispanic players, including 2018 AL MVP Mookie Betts, skipped the meeting to protest Trump’s policies. Red Sox manager and Puerto Rico native Alex Cora refused to go as well. Cora has been outspoken about what he thinks was the Trump administration’s inadequate federal recovery effort in his home island after Hurricane Maria devastated it in 2017.

Cora and the other players boycotting Trump got some moral support from former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz—a U.S. citizen who immigrated from the Dominican Republic—who weighed in on the team’s visit to the White House as well. “You don’t want to go and shake hands with a guy who is treating immigrants like shit because I’m an immigrant,” Ortiz said, referring to Trump. “It’s like you are going to shake hands with the enemy. Think about it, all the stuff that has been going on since he took office. People are angry. People are mad. He has divided people, that’s how it feels like.”


And the hits just kept on coming for the White House on Thursday, when one reporter noted that it had actually managed a hat trick of Boston-related press release mistakes:
