Hard to say. I have to have the tv remote in hand when watching a news channel. When Trump's face appears, wothin seconds disgusting things come out of his mouth.

The most disgusting thing, however, is that for 1.5 more years the world is about Trump.

I do the same thing. I don't listen to Trump or his supporters on TV or radio. Their kind can't be trusted to tell the truth so why bother?

When I see him, disgusting things come out of my own mouth as well.

Me, too. Just seeing his smarmy, gloating, self-important smirk is enough to send my blood pressure through the roof. I disliked Bush 2 but I LOATHE this toad.

Or drinking from a glass without a sippy spout on it?

Or sitting in a truck cab on the WH lawn playing trucks like a toddler?

Hey don't be dissing the great paper towel toss!

After all, with all the problems Puerto Rico is having right now, a lack of appropriate paper products is not one of them!

Hey, just remembered a couple of others:

After a Florida school shooting, he claimed that if he were there, he would have run into the building to personally stop the shooter!

Claimed that sleeping with women in the 80s was his own "personal Viet Nam", because of the risk of various diseases.

Proposed attacking the families (including women and children) of terrorists (which is more or less a war crime).

They aren't war crimes if the US does it.
I once saw someone advocate for what was essentially the return of siege warfare. Surround an enemy city, don't let any supplies in, and kill anyone who tries to leave, no matter who they are.

Here's a new one - consistent with dementia removing any social niceties from Trump:

ETA: it's an embedded video, hence the twitter link

The thumbs up with the baby whose parents had just been murdered makes the top ten, for certain.

That picture could be a poster for how to spot a nacissist.

It's a-ok. The murdered parents were supposedly Trump supporters.

The campaign video was one of the most creepy things Trump has done. It might have been removed from his Twitter already. I can't find it there.

Scroll down to his Tweet.

Trump one of the most well-known socialites in modern America doesn't know how the hell to socialize with everyday people.

How does that happen. I think mental decline. Would young Trump have called Glendon Oakley a movie star?

If Senate Republicans won't let us impeach this obnoxiously self-obsessed mushroom dick, how about a "common law" option: March on the White House, drag his nasty ass out on the South Lawn, tar and feather him, attach him to a fence rail, ride him across the nearest bridge and drop him in the nearest dumpster.

Some of the hospital workers don't come out of this with much credit, either.

It seems that none of the other victims of the shooting wanted to see the President, so this was the only photo-op he could get.

Sounds feasible.

I can't imagine anyone other than a brain-dead Trump voter wanting to be photographed with him.

The thumbs-up photo reminds me of all those clueless tourists taking smiling or posing selfies in front of Holocaust memorials and other sensitive sites.

You know it's bad when Scaramucci is quoted by Fox News saying those trips were a disaster for Trump's image. Presumably by showing him as he is.
