America. This is your president speaking. Really. This isn't satire.

From Trump's ABC News interview yesterday about the speech he made Saturday in front of the Memorial Wall of Honor at the CIA:

"That speech was a home run. See what Fox said. They said it was one of the great speeches. They showed the people applauding and screaming…. I got a standing ovation. In fact, they said it was the biggest standing ovation since Peyton Manning had won the Super Bowl, and they said it was equal. 

I got a standing ovation. It lasted for a long period of time. You probably ran it live. I know when I do good speeches. I know when I do bad speeches. That speech was a total home run. They loved it…. People loved it. They loved it. They gave me a standing ovation for a long period of time. They never even sat down, most of them, during the speech."

From PM Carpenter

"The point here isn't to ridicule the president of the United States' penchant for self-inflating gibberish. The point, the obvious one, I should think, is rather that this is an unstable man whose thoughts and speech positively scream his instability — and he is the president of the United States." 


I've lived through 11 US presidencies. 

I've never heard a more insecure, self-absorbed, mentally unstable statement like the one quoted above in all those years.

Someone needs to take the nuclear codes away from this crazy man.  Quickly!

Poll: Trump’s opening weekend gets lowest approval of modern era

The first measurement of President Donald Trump’s job-approval rating shows Americans divided over his performance in his three days in the Oval Office.

Trump’s approval rating in the Gallup survey, conducted last Friday through Sunday, opens at 45 percent — the same percentage of Americans that said they disapprove of Trump’s first weekend on the job.

In fact, Trump is beginning his presidency with the lowest initial approval rating in the modern polling era, according to Gallup.

But while Trump’s first approval rating is improved from the poor reviews Americans gave to his presidential transition, it is also lower than previous presidents — a sign Trump has entered the White House without the same support from Americans that others have enjoyed. Barack Obama’s opening approval rating in January 2009 was 67 percent

I have never witnessed such a FUBAR of a beginning of a presidency in my life. Neither has the rest of the country and world.

Amateur Hour at the WH starring President 37%.
