    Starting with how many insulting, bully, racist, misogynistic things he said while he was campaigning for starters.

    I doubt I will. Except maybe to answer questions directly posed to me (as this one was).

    Was Obama Presidential when he called an African Country a S---Hole?
    Obama never called any African nation a shithole. I find it incredible how you people make up your own reality.


    LOL.

    People said that they voted for Trump because he was not a politician and was not like other politicians.

    Now that is not working out for them, they have shifted to the lie that Trump is "Presidential" enough.

    Even Trump supporters are tired of Trump's not acting presidential that they have to lie now...that he is.

    If by Presidential you mean diplomatic - employing tact and conciliation especially in situations of stress - which seems to be what his critics are referring to - the President has never been that way.

    The better question here is why you think the President's supporters would suddenly care about him not being diplomatic? I certainly don't. I didn't care then and I don't care now. Is there one Trump supporter on this board who is offended by this? I doubt it.

    So it's not that his supporters are lying. We simply don't care if he thinks Africa has a lot of shit hole countries. It does have a lot of shit hole countries. Trump is often blunt in public - so I can only imagine what his private conversations are like. lol

    This is a very valid topic and needs to be discussed.

    It is shameful that we have such an ignorant,racist, bigoted semi literate man in the WhiteHouse.

    And I might remind you, you do not have to participate if you see no subject.

    Have a nice day.

    Those were not my words - because I don't think he's an ignorant fool.

    I would prefer you not twist my words or attribute things to me that I never said.

    What I said in that comment is that I don't care if the President uses language that isn't diplomatic. I never did care. And I don't care now.

    If he wants to call countries in Africa shit holes, that doesn't bother me. Especially since so many of them actually are shit holes. So I don't really see the issue here. This nonsense has been going on since the primary. The President says something colorful and his critics freak out for a a few days. I've seen this movie over and over and over again.

    The fact you like him is clear. It is not twisting your words. The fact remains no matter how ignorant Trump acts,you think it is fine.

    I do not! We need a President who is just a little Diplomatic. Not one,who is so narcisstic he is incapable Of functioning.

    I don't know the President personally - so I don't like him or not like him. He can at times be amusing - and I agree with many of his policy aims, which is why I voted for him.

    And like I said - the President's remarks here were not ignorant. A lot of the countries in Africa are shit holes. I would think it's fine if you called countries in Africa shit holes as well. So my point of view here really doesn't have anything unique to do with Trump.

    As far as him being diplomatic - I should point out this was a private conversation and not a public speech. His presidential addresses to the U.N. and other nations have been for the most part diplomatic. So he is just a little diplomatic. And I believe the President to be functioning just fine.

    This is just another one of those blood coming out of her wherever moments - where his critics freak out over what is essentially nothing.
