    The real problem is the electorate. When you have people who will actively and enthusiastically vote for an obvious moron, there will inevitably be problems. And is one reason why a dictatorship is sometimes preferable.

    Bet trumps IQ is higher than Colbert's ratings, it's sad he can't talk about a democrat, that clownshow Is truly funny but no we have to listen to the same stale crap 5 nights a week, he better hope Trump is reelected or he will have nothing to preach about, proof a totally ignorant person can put on a nice suit and land a job he is incapable of pulling off, but will say or do anything to keep it, the bias bullshit you spit out makes you a small person who will always attack people who don't share your beliefs, can't believe you lasted this long with the dnc writing your jokes

    You can mock him all you like, criticize him all you like, foam all you like... But at the end of the day here are the facts:
    - He has an IQ of over 150. That indeed makes him ALMOST a genius.
    - He is a successful businessman and billionaire.
    - he is the President of the United States.
    Man, I wish I was not very smart like him...

    Shut up stephan.. I picked my artistic career at the age of 2 what the hell were you doing at that age? As far as religion goes I don't really give a damn about it and politics is pointless/endless game that makes no one happy albeit useless to even try to explain to you what matters anymore... so I say which century do you live in because even I'm going whats the fucking point!

    So how did he win the Presidency against ALL the odds?

    He said he would win and he won. First the Rep Nomination and then the Presidential Race.

    All the "clever" people said it was impossible.

    So Trump clearly has something the "clever" people don't have. There is no argument against a fact. And it is a fact that he is the POTUS.

    How did he do that?

    To understand Trump's business ability, Google up "Trump, Plaza Hotel," and then follow the thread of your choice. Spoiler alert: he loses the hotel. His wife and children. His yacht and airline. And his father's and grandfather's fortunes.
    Then he gets a job in television, playing the part of a loud fake businessman. No acting needed.

    Oh Trump you make it so easy for people to make you the butt of very joke in the book, maybe if your weren’t such a moronic fool and a public liability maybe people would not be so harsh on you but I doubt that, and time and time again, you have placed yourself in the position for ridicule and insults.

    That tweet you're talking about at 2:10? It was written by Barron. It's how teens talk using the word, "like." Barron writes a lot of Trump's tweets at times. Don has to have an assistant and he uses his poor son. I know this because my students use to use that word all the time. Some of them and it drove me crazy! lol But only some. Others thought it was stupid. I think this is Barron rebelling against what his Father keeps asking him to do. "If you love me you'll write my tweets," kind of deal. Poor kid not being able to tell anyone about it. :( Trump can't write or spell well so he uses other people. Can't you tell by the tones of the various tweets? They aren't all written by one person. And you'll never see him tweet in public because of this. Barron is probably getting ready to go to school when he helps his Dad. It's so very sad because Barron can't tell anyone about it. Tell them how ignorant his Father really is. Trump just never learned and hasn't bothered TO learn. Like what you say about him getting bored over the reading of the Constitution. He has NO patience for learning and just fakes or lies about it. If you look up his grades you'll find he was a terrible student. He's actually proud of the fact that he socked his second grade teacher in the stomach! I taught for decades and I've never known a student who wasn't special needs, to hurt a teacher! Ever! And he forced Tony Schwartz to keep that story in the book Tony was writing for Trump called, "The Art of the Deal." It's here on RU-clip Tony talking about that. He said he decided to speak out when Trump announced he was running for President and then he told the audience HE"D written the book when Tony had! That's when Tony decided to speak out about what really happened. In the 18 months Tony was in the Trump apartment he said he never saw ONE BOOK! Trump hates to read. And he likes being ignorant. He really does! He has his own wall. A wall that nothing can penetrate. You don't tell him what to do because in Trump World he knows everything. And he's drinking again. He really is a mentally sick man who now is letting Mexican kids die because they are being kept in such cramped quarters with NO HEAT and only those silver looking blankets. This is the second child who has died and more are going to follow. :( Songs

    America is great because of our Bill of Rights , Constitution and laws; this makes it so attractive to immigrants. Why would
    foreigners be so attracted to our country if it were a place in need of reform? It is the prosperity that has been created
    under our system of government that they are attracted to. Be happy to be here and assimilate! Complaining about
    prosperity and opportunity just sounds dumb. Leave dumb behind.

    Our nation is in a very sad place right now. The man who holds the position of president is so inept and narcissistic that he considers the Constitution to be less important than what he will be eating for dinner. As president, his job is to protect and uphold the CONSTITUTION, which includes the Bill of Rights. The idiot doesn't even know the Constitutional amendments. He is without a doubt the least qualified president in the history of the United States. To make matters worse, he is clearly a sociopath suffering from severe narcissism and delusions of grandeur.
