Trump isn’t that smart. When he does something it’s for one of two reasons. To bring the spotlight on himself by showing how wonderful he is or to get back at someone for some perceived slight.

You guys have been underestimating him from the go.

What, is he just the luckiest guy in the world, or what?

IF?? IF?? Boy howdy--you've been missing the headlines these days! Take a peek:
What they're saying:

  • Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney: “The city would be prepared to welcome these immigrants just as we have embraced our immigrant communities for decades."
  • Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel: “As a welcoming city, we would welcome these migrants with open arms, just as we welcomed Syrian refugees, just as we welcomed Puerto Ricans displaced by Hurricane Maria and just as we welcome Rohingya refugees fleeing genocide in Myanmar."
  • Mayor Marc McGovern of Cambridge, Massachusetts: “I am proud that Cambridge is a sanctuary city. ... Trump is a schoolyard bully who tries to intimidate and threaten people. I’m not intimidated and if asylum seekers find their way to Cambridge, we’ll welcome them.”
  • San Francisco Mayor London Breed: “Like so many issues we are forced to talk about during this presidency, this isn’t a real idea or a real proposal, it’s just another scare tactic."
  • Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler: “Humans are not pawns. This is not a game. These are people’s lives ... Portland will continue to protect its sanctuary status in accordance with Oregon law and the U.S. Constitution. We strongly denounce the cruel efforts of this administration to retaliate against sanctuary cities.”
  • Mayor Daniel Drew of Middletown, Connecticut: “It’s a sign of the president’s tremendous weakness as an executive and weakness as a leader, and of the degree to which he pales in comparison to all of his recent predecessors."
  • New York Mayor Bill de Blasio: “He uses people like pawns ... New York City will always be the ultimate city of immigrants – the President’s empty threats won’t change that.”
  • Mayor Steven Hernandez of Coachella, California: “We have already been working alongside partners to ensure that recently arrived families, women and children get the services they need to make their successful transition into America."
AND these are just the immediate responses. Trump just continues to embarrass himself. AZ is a purple state. We've got a GOP Gov but Phoenix has a DEM mayor so I'm betting Kate Gallego is about to send our her invitation.
Did you really think any IDEA of Trumps would flummox a lot of much smarter people? Gawd...he is stupid.

Good!!!!

Only two. Philly and Chicago, actually said that they welcome the immigrants in question. One, Cambridge, kinda skirts around it but doesn't address it directly. He said "if they find their way". That doesn't mean busloads delivered by ICE, that isn't "finding their own way".
The rest simply blather about Trump or state what they want you to believe they've done in the past.
Tent cities in their parks and under their bridges is a bit frightening.

A millionaire hires the worlds best outdoor survival expert to teach him how to survive in the wilderness. After a month of training the survivalist takes the millionaire out to the woods to test him. While they are walking down a path the survivalist asks, “If a bear were to jump out in front of us, what would you do?”
“I’d run,” answered the millionaire.
“Didn’t you learn anything these past four weeks? Running is the worst thing you can do! You can’t outrun a bear!”
“Who said anything about outrunning a bear?,” asked the millionaire. “I just have to outrun you!”

You don’t have to be smart to be a good snake oil salesman. You just have to be smarter than the people you are fleecing.

I think the real shame is that Republicans and hangers-on were convinced that Trump was the better choice. He should never have come NEAR the presidency.
However, the US has always demonstrated a certain inexplicable attraction to unqualified "actor" candidates-- Jesse Ventura, Arnold Schwarzennegger, Ronald Reagan come to mind.

One would think that such a brilliant man, with narcissist tendencies, would want to brag about his tax returns and business connections.

Why is it wrong for Trump to suggest sending all of these illegals to sanctuary cities wrong? I don't understand the counter argument. How is this political when the same politicians are welcoming such illegal immigration, giving them free stuff they don't even give Americans and refuse to fix the problem?

...
Ah, so Trump has given up on even the lip service of pretending to be the president of the entire United States? That's something, I had quit expecting any kind of honesty out of him before the heat death of the universe. Does that make up for all the other mendacity he emanates day & night? You might as well ask how many seconds there are in eternity:

"The king said, … how many seconds of time are there in eternity? Then said the shepherd boy, in lower Pomerania is the diamond mountain, which is two miles high, two miles wide, and two miles deep. Every hundred years a little bird comes and sharpens its beak on it, and when the whole mountain is worn away by this, then the first second of eternity will be over."

I think there are three types of Republicans.
1. The ones that didn’t think Trump was a good choice and are not quiet about it (The “NeverTrump” group)
2. The ones that don’t think Trump is a good choice but shut up about it out of fear of alienating the GOP base that bought into Trump (the “sell out our principles for power” group.
3. Those that actually believe Trump is a good choice. (The “Trumpeteers”)

As the Trump train wreck continues in slow motion in front of our eyes the entirety of the GOP is slowly sliding to group 1. Hopefully by 2020 it will be enough that Trump isn’t even re nominated (highly unlikely I think) or if nominated looses the general election (about 50/50 right now)
