‘Tin-pot dictatorship’

Posted by | January 26, 2017 16:17 | Filed under: Media/Show Business Politics

The Philadelphia inquirer’s editorial page pulls no punches.

President Trump has shown a keen obsession with TV ratings and crowd size. But during his visit to Philadelphia today, it is fervently hoped that he will pay attention to the expected thousands of protesters who fear he is undermining the democratic process and threatening his own presidency.

From spreading bald lies to suppressing basic facts and information, the early days of the Trump administration are suggestive of a tin-pot dictatorship. That’s not the look he wants, and neither do most Americans.

    Yup, an incompetent worthless leader who is not well, that’s what we got.

      bannon and miller are the real brains of the outfit…they take their cues from Putin, and trump does his thing…these guys should not be writing EO’s…the junta is calling the shots, trump is just the “shiny” object, to hopefully keep the media busy, while the power behind the Golden Shower Throne, does his job for him…I just scared the crap outta me typing that…

    A president who wants to use torture, condemns the free press for reporting on him, (calling them the most corrupt people ever) and makes up his own facts to suit his personal pride…
    What the hell did those people elect?

    • Budda January 26th, 2017 at 16:55

      SOME people have elected….an idiot

      it’s a good thing he’s the quiet shy type that does good things for the people that we’ll never find out about….. to quote one of his supporters in you Samantha Bee vid above.

    What else would anyone expect of a “tin-horn” president?

    They gotta be laughing their asses off in the Kremlin right now.
    History will remember us as the dumbest generation.

    • Suzanne McFly January 26th, 2017 at 18:10

      Which one of the generations are you referring to? I don’t believe millennials voted for him. I am part of Gen X and I am not sure, but I think it was mostly the “Greatest” generation that voted for him.

      • Mike January 26th, 2017 at 18:19

        It’s Baby Boomers that voted for fascism.

        • Suzanne McFly January 26th, 2017 at 18:27

          Okay, I was hoping that is who you were referring too. I hate to think there was something I wasn’t aware of lol.

              I’m 72 and I agree with YOU .

            Count me in on that.

        • Gina Bousquet January 26th, 2017 at 19:47

          Well, only the right wing ones in a generation, of course.It’s not as if all baby boomers suddenly turned idiotic rightists.

        • Gina Bousquet January 26th, 2017 at 19:53

          I totally disagree, but my answer is pending because I qualified right wingers as id*otic.

        • Gina Bousquet January 26th, 2017 at 20:04

          Baby Booomers made the sexual revolution, resisted Vietnam war, created feminism, made the best rock the US has produced, invented grass roots organizations. Trump’s white nationalists are not baby boomers.Democratic, leftist Baby Boomers did not turn fascists, or voted Trump.

        • granpa.usthai January 27th, 2017 at 00:31

          not this one.

    Tin pot yes but Trump will make it pretty with some gold plating, but it will still be just a chamber pot full of s**t

    Tin pot meet kettle

    Tin-pot Dictator, that is an Old term but, it fits trump Very Well.

    Despot Don and his band of authoritarian kleptocrats will become increasingly dangerous to what is left of our democracy.They take an oath to abide by and protect the constitution of the United States.Violation of that oath should be immediate impeachment,but most of congress and senate are only concerned with their interests, not their Nations.All the warnings we have sounded are now becoming apparent.Trump is dangerous and is about to create even more crises.

    Tin-pot dictatorship? That sounds about right….
