Remember when we all thought Trump was just trolling when he announced his candidacy? Those were the days.
Such potential!

He's still trolling.

The presidency being a "bully pulpit" is Teddy Roosevelt's expression in the terminology (and technology) of his era.

But this is 2017 ( already ! :BigGrin3: ). No one speaks of pulpits attributively and no one says good things are "bully".

What better position from which to troll than the Presidency of the United States? :coolspecs:

Well, there is a bit of triangulation too and political theatre too.

Maybe now Trump blesses Todd with an interview.

Never trust the bastards.

The only thing worse than a media that manufactures disinformation about the bastard in chief is one that sucks up to him and covers his trespasses.

Real in what sense?

That he really felt it?

That he really wanted you to think he felt it?

It's all very subjective.

No, that it's actually authored by the person they are saying it is. And not some kind of "fan fiction".

I sure do want these to be true. :mrgreen:



Yes there is media corroboration, but it could be a combination of fake news and self dramatization.

Celebrities Call For ‘Total Hollywood Strike’ Until Trump Resigns
Daily EB

Not a Trump story.

Not an anti-Trump story either, because it's not really about him.

Not really an "entertainment business" story, because it will have zero impact on business. Do you really suppose any of these characters will turn down a gig?
...

A group of liberal Hollywood celebrities are threatening a “massive, all-round Hollywood strike” unless Donald Trump resigns. Describing Hollywood as “the base of the entire modern American culture“, the group also claims to be speaking on behalf of “all of humanity.”

“It’s about time people understood that we’re the ones with the power and that the president is there to serve us, not the other way around“, a spokesperson for the group told The New York Times.

“We’re calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops.”

...
Quite a bit of self delusion there (emphasis added), but really just a fashion statement.

If I really thought they'd do this I'd have started a new thread.

Latest: Inmates cite Trump, education as motive for takeover
Inmates inside a Delaware prison where four staff members were being held hostage reached out to a newspaper in two phone calls to explain their concerns, including the leadership of the U.S., educational opportunities, rehabilitation and how the state spends money on prisons.

Prisoners at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center funneled the calls Wednesday to The News Journal in Wilmington with the help of one inmate’s fiancee and another person’s mother. The mother told the paper her son was among the hostages.

In that call, an inmate said their reasons “for doing what we’re doing” included “Donald Trump. Everything that he did. All the things that he’s doing now. We know that the institution is going to change for the worse.”

That caller said education for prisoners was the inmates’ priority. They also sought effective rehabilitation for all prisoners and information about how money is allocated to prisons.
