  1. “But I have a no conflict of interest provision as president. It was many, many years old, this is for presidents. Because they don’t want presidents getting — I understand they don’t want presidents getting tangled up in minutia; they want a president to run the country. So I could actually run my business, I could actually run my business and run government at the same time.” (
    Aside: Does this last paragraph even make sense or for that matter hang together well? – End Aside)

    Oh Yeah, we don’t want the President running his own business while he runs the Country (and according to Mr Trump, he could easily do both; blindfolded and with his hands tied behind his back) but we don’t want him to do both at the same time because he might get “TIED UP IN THE MINUTIA”. JEEZ; like we aren’t worried at all that he will, and I say will not might, use his new power to further his own personal and business economic gain; as well as those of his friends and cohorts. So he voluntarily takes himself out of the day to day management of his own business affairs. Whoopeee!

    A President with ethics and a non-personal advancement agenda….yah right; look at his cabinet appointees. Tell me his sons will not do exactly what he asks on any issue. So he no longer opens his own mail or hire and fires….I’m betting if he decides to say jump; the answer will be how high? ~~dru~~

  2. After eight years of a president whose public comments were professorial, thoughtful, complex and well thought out, the contrast with Trump’s “press conference” made me sad for America.

    The guy showed no growth in the process of becoming the next president, he concentrated on his petty miffs with the press, was ironic in his criticisms, couldn’t keep from bringing up campaign rant material that had nothing to do with the questions, showed his Russian loyalties in extreme, further trashed the US intelligence services suggesting he didn’t fully trust those though he seemed comfortable with the Russian contention they had nothing to do with the revelation (?) about the compromising videos of Trump.

    The press conference was a really disappointing and information poor performance.

    Oh yes, his attorney’s unconvincing explanation of how he was going to avoid conflicts of interest had more content than Trump’s sorry excuse for answers. The guy can’t focus.

    I have always believed one should be respectful of the president, regardless of his party or policies. If you can’t respect the man, respect the office. This is one of those “respect the office” presidents. The man is a sorry mess.

  3. I’ve become more concerned over the last few weeks as we approach the 20th that all those people that supported him, ultimately voting for him, were wrong. Listening to him speak is like listening to that ADHD co-worker that can’t focus long enough to even form a full sentence; speaks in a string of commas and semi-colons. Since I can remember I’ve never missed a State of the Union address, but this President, I may have three years off after hearing the next one.

    1. These rabid supporters will defend him regardless how messed up he is….SOTU will be missed by me also…I may read a synopsis but watching will be out of the question. chuq

  4. This was shown on the TV news here. It felt a bit like one of those embarrassing rambling speeches you see at the Oscars. Despite this amateurism, it has to be said that his stumbling and nonsense makes him all the more appealing to those who talk in exactly the same way. Worrying, but true.
    Regards, Pete.
