Man, you're another one living in the past, propped up by Obama-bashing. Try bashing President McKinley or Hoover, who come to mind because I attended schools named after those 2.

But seriously, Trump lied about protecting LGBTQ rights, and I hear he wants to overturn democratically achieved marijuana legalization in states. Maybe its just a way to exert revenge, because marijuana is a big cash crop and has improved the economy where ever it occurred.

The issue was not about the football being out in the open, it was about a strategy meeting being held out in the open, surrounded by random people with their cell phones out. The pictures you're referring to may have been taken by one of the guests with their phone.
Watch Steven Colbert's opening monologue. Everyday he talks about Trump, and his show has moved into #1 position for it!!

Trump has stopped tweeting!!! A FEW TIMES IN THE LAST 5 DAYS.

betsy DeVos wanted to maintain trans rights in schools to prevent the harm to trans kids, but was threatened to get fired so she allowed it. Tough choice: my job vs. harm to trans kids. Hmmmmm.

Well, it is possible to go further back in history and find precedents for what Trump is now doing -Roosevelt’s concentration camps for people of Japanese ancestry are a good example- but Obama is Trump’s immediate predecessor, so he is really one of the best illustrations that Trump is the natural next step for America's two capitalist parties of racism and war.

The future?? Obama budgeted $1 trillion to upgrade America’s nuclear arsenal while uttering polite words about “non-proliferation” for the media. Trump doesn’t bother with the politeness, and he also seems to have no objection to Obama’s “Pivot to Asia” plan to attack China. Indeed, he shows signs of wanting to speed it up, just as he is doing with Obama’s war on immigrants.

I’m not sure why Trump objects to the Obama-led, mostly bipartisan plan to also attack Russia. This plan is apocalyptic lunacy, of course, but that doesn’t seem to faze Trump or any of the other capitalist rulers of today. Germany has announced a significant expansion of its military, and its tanks are now rolling into Eastern Europe for the first time since World War II, but this time accompanied by American tanks. As far as I can tell, this is the only reason the New York Times is running articles with titles like “How Can We Get Rid of Trump?”
