Trump doesn't stand a chance against a Jedi knight like @HamillHimself - you don't fuck with Disney characters and live to tell.
By using that logic.... YOU'RE FIRED!!! ;) :) :shock:

LOL, ok mods I get it. You can delete my post but the fact remains that Kocher is still nihilistic, self righteous pussy. I guess every message board needs one.

This whole thing is getting more bizarre by the day.

Would love to get my hands on the book.
Wolff, who chronicles the administration from Election Day to this past October, conducted conversations and interviews over a period of 18 months with the president, most members of his senior staff, and many people to whom they in turn spoke. Shortly after Trump’s inauguration, Wolff says, he was able to take up “something like a semi-permanent seat on a couch in the West Wing” — an idea encouraged by the president himself. Because no one was in a position to either officially approve or formally deny such access, Wolff became “more a constant interloper than an invited guest.” There were no ground rules placed on his access, and he was required to make no promises about how he would report on what he witnessed.

Since then, he conducted more than 200 interviews. In true Trumpian fashion, the administration’s lack of experience and disdain for political norms made for a hodgepodge of journalistic challenges. Information would be provided off-the-record or on deep background, then casually put on the record. Sources would fail to set any parameters on the use of a conversation, or would provide accounts in confidence, only to subsequently share their views widely. And the president’s own views, private as well as public, were constantly shared by others. The adaptation presented here offers a front-row view of Trump’s presidency, from his improvised transition to his first months in the Oval Office."

There's no doubt about that. He's been an entertainer for a long time, he knows how to play on the sensibilities of the stupid.

Incredible. So mentally stable that it's one of his defining qualities and so intelligent that it can only be explained in Valley girl talk, while simultaneously forgetting that it definitely was not his "first try" at office. Only a lunatic would feel the need to reassure people that they're not insane.
Like gag me with a spoon. It was his first run for elected office. He ran an exploratory committee for President in 2000 but that isnt actually running for office. And when you're mental capacity is being questioned in an attempt at a coup d'etat it shouldn't surprise anyone when you have to keep proving your mental stability.
Yes, and then he campaigned for office, henceforth, ran.
No, that's not a campaign for office and no he didn't run. Glad to have cleared that confusion up for you.

Not sure if you're going after a technicality, he campaigned to be the Reform Party's candidate and withdrew when he didn't think he had enough support. He campaigned, he lost. Any outlet will corroborate it, there are better hills to die on son.

Technically, it was an exploratory endeavor. Trump himself said that they were looking into the feasibility of launching an actual campaign for the presidency in October of 1999, stating that they would decide sometime in January or February. They decided against it in February.

He never actually ran.

But according to the next sentence in Wikipedia
Though he believed he could still win the Reform Party presidential nomination, he felt the party was too dysfunctional to support his campaign and enable a win in the general election.

So did he run or not run? Didn't he win 2 of the reform primaries?
How can u win a primary if you're not running :?:

He didn't really pursue it. He didn't go for the general election. His idea was seeing how much of the vote he appeared to hold, which was only about 7%. I'm sure if he was higher in the polls (like around 25%) he would have stuck it out even as lame as Perrot and the Reform Party are, but at 7%, it didn't make any sense to try.

I didn't even hear about it :lol:
