Exactly what would it take for you not to find him acceptable?
That is what is scary. They are willing to accept permanent damage to Democracy in the US in exchange for some Tax Breaks and a Supreme Court seat. Disgusting, really.
Irony is it might backfire. The GOP mights be so badly damaged that the idea of adding a couple of seats to the Supreme Court (which Congress can do) just to counter balance the Trump appointees might be popular.
In fact, I am about ready to accuse some here of just plain hating democracy, and wanting some kind of rule by a wealthy elite.

By 'here' do you mean the USA? In which case, yes obviously, this is the core of the 47% argument. Not a new problem... Philosophy question, is this what they called the Platonic Corruption? ie: rejecting pure democracy citing a belief that the little people are not competent, so arguing for an elitist restriction on who could vote and who could run for office

After his statement that the SEC would collapse in case he would be impeached, Chantecler seems appropriate.

According to a play written by French author Edmond Rostand Chantecler is a rooster who is convinced that his crowing causes the sun to rise.

Did I miss something? SEC? I know he said the market would decline, but I can't find any specific reference to the SEC.

In his latest statement Trump threatened to plunge the world into darkness by closing his eyes and keeping them shut.

You won't. They've not really been relevant since they let TAMU in.

I assume it was just a bad reference to the markets.

Makes sense. Which, actually, I think is possibly true, hard to predict. Could go either way. His policies have been both bullish (tax cuts, deregulation) and bearish (tariffs, pro-inflationary).

We're reaching the end of the 2009-onward Obama recovery; I predict it will level off for awhile and fluctuate up and down normally, a slight correction when anticipated windfalls from overseas tax amnesty and trickledown does not materialize... is entirely possible within the year. Curious to see how the administration spins it.

I'm not sure why he is asking the fed to hold off on interest rate hikes. Just speculation, but I bet it affects his loans, he is likely highly leveraged.

Wow, you are quick. I posted that based on my perception of raws at work. Current fed guidance looks like inflation is levelled off. Hopefully that carries over to the raws we use...

That's the one I've been waiting for.

I haven't been reading this thread but Tapa displays the most recent post so I've kept watching for it.
Someone posted it in some Trump thread here maybe 6 weeks ago, and I was hoping it would make it into this one... it's a leading contender in my eyes.

Speaking of President Trump, Dyson said, "this orange apparition had the nerve to say she worked for him. You lugubrious leech, you dopey doppelgänger of deceit and deviance, you lethal liar, you dimwitted dictator, you foolish fascist -- she ain't work for you. She worked above you. She worked beyond you. Get your preposition right."

watched some of the funeral posted on youtube - Dyson introduced people present, including "President Clinton and her husband".

If trump attends an event, the intro could be -

We are proud to present the "dopey doppelganger of deceit and deviance", the President of the “United Shates.”

As I'm sure Smartcooky and Skeptic Ginger amongst others would point out - this fits with a diagnosis of NPD in that Trump had to make it about him:
