The Best Plan is to Profit From the Folly of Others.

Someone made the point that we shouldn't necessarily cheer Trumps bumbling, he is our president after all.

But then this quote hit me, "The best plan is to profit from the folly of others." Pliny the Elder

I suppose it's ok for us to find some joy and cheer that he stumbles just enough to be really funny and lead to impeachment, hopefully its not the dangerous kind of bumbling around of course.

Am I wrong to take this joy?  Am I a bad person?  I wake up every morning like a kid on Christmas, "Oh boy oh boy, what did he do today?!"

It's honestly not even so much a partisan thing as I think many will agree, Trump is sort of a party of his own.  I just viscerally disagree with so much of his nationalist platform that I don't mind seeing him take a mighty fall.  He can't even greet a foreign leader without making an idiot of himself.  I'd sincerely be fine with a Pence taking over, even though he's like uber conservative, even more so than Trump.

Am I alone?

LOL

Well played.  Perhaps from your point of view, however I don't think you can say it's how he got elected as the DNC still won the popular vote.  It's not like Trump has any kind of mandate.

Oh, he's got a man-date alright!  Wink

I'll admit, I've been basking in my schadenfreude. Seems the wheels on the clown car have lost their lugs and I'm just staring at the inevitable crash.

No profit though. :/

The only good thing coming outta all this, from my POV, is the exposure of DNC bias and NO MORE CLINTONS OR BUSHES!
  

For too long have we sat under the thumb of mankind! The time has come to *oppose* that thumb!

LOL the ole popular vote BS, as you are well aware, we don't elect presidents by popular vote.
just curious how's that popular vote thingy go if you take away CA, after all they want to secede, I doubt you'd want 1 state electing the president, right?

The profit for me is watching the GOP chew their own asses off over Trump.   Wink

I know you'd like to downplay the fact that Trump just barely squeked in.  It was shrewd gerrymandering that got your man elected and I say "your man" because I want the GOP and conservatives to completely own this fool.

When Obama won the presidency, he won the popular vote and the electoral college in both 2012 and 2008.  This is why Trump keeps lying about millions of instances of voter fraud.  His ego needs protection from the fact that he's the most unpopular president that we can remember.

So, "squeaked in" means illegitimate. Roll Eyes

In the OP I expressly say that he is OUR president.  Just pointing out that he's terribly unpopular and does not have a mandate like Obama had.  That's got to really irk Trump and not suprisingly, his admirers like you.

Now you deal with the fact that he's not even popular in his own party let alone the rest of America.   Wink
