Today's twitter agenda: Bash Judge Roberts, stop briefly to give shortest possible Thanksgiving greeting, resume bashing Judge Roberts. You might have thought it not unreasonable for the current president of the US, even if only from the prompting of his aides, to have reminded his adoring legions that today is also the anniversary of the assassination of one of his predecessors.

I guess he doesn't want to think about it, since more people probably want to kill him than wanted to kill Kennedy.

Lol.

Seems I'm late in catching up on the news, he also omitted to mention that a young(ish) senator passed away last night. RIP Jose Peralta.

It's another tantrum. "It's not fair, that judge doesn't like me, I can't whatever I want."

You didn't bother to listen to the dude explaining the scenario and humour involved, you just picked up the Fox soundbite and ran with it? Nice work.

No I didn't but I'm ever hopeful and very occasionally I'm not disappointed. However...

Just received a link which states :-
Since Trump got elected ,yesterday he played his 163rd round off golf on a Trump Owned Golf Course
& spent his 215th day at a Trump Owned Property .
All paid for by the USA's Tax Payers
Surely this should raise questions due to the Emoluments Clause !
Please Note :- Today he has been in Office for 671 Day's

So he has spent +/- 25% off his time Playing Golf
& +/- 33 % Staying at his own properties

You didn't notice that was Robert Wolfe was Obama's Economic Advisor? Of course he would try and make excuses for him. Poor ones too. It seems Obama started rattling on with his usual divisiveness and didn't know where to stop. He looked a bit confused himself actually. ...Oh yeah it was a joke, right?

Bill McGurn made a good point about identity politics being one of the biggest drivers of racism.

And Brad Blakeman's assertion that Obama missed a great opportunity to bring the nation together. A pity the US emerged from his two terms more divided than ever.

Maybe that is the joke, the irony. That he had the awesome opportunity to unite the nation like no-one before him, yet he didn't, he blew it and then afterwards he harps on about hate, anger, racism ....mommy issues. Joking about them?

PS: It would be nice if you can make a reasoned response and not just another snide remark.

Continued cuddling up to his buddies the Sauds. Armaments and oil business - way more important than anything else. It would be better if he could make his mind up though, he voices a different opinion on their involvement every time he opens his mouth.

Not that I single Trump out on cuddling with murderous dictators - that is a hallmark of many a governement including the UK and the US. Officials and politicians are usually able to maintain a consistent front, however.

You've got that backwards once again. Obama didn't divide the nation, it was always divided - between people who think it's OK to vocally complain about a 'n---er in the White House' and ones who know it isn't. Just because this filth is now further emboldened by the orange dumpster fire to spew their racist bullshit even louder and farther flung doesn't mean Obama is guilty of anything other than having the audacity to be an intelligent, articulate and engaging black man who won a general election.

They like Trump because he's every bit as stupid, ignorant and bigoted as they are and they hated Obama because he was all the things they believe themselves to be but aren't.
