1. Trump joins Dubya as presidents I simply couldn't/can't listen to.

Life is too short to be made so miserable.

20. He's getting to the limit of his ability

to stand there and speak without going off the teleprompter script.

Edit to add that he is really huffing and puffing now.

5. He only has the one speech.

Even when someone puts new material on the teleprompter, he ad libs in the old speech.

Beyond incompetent, incomprehensible and incoherent - he is unwatchable.

He grates on the brain.

He's trying to sound solemn, but he sounds sedated.

11. "Saudi Arabia should be a place that refugees flock to."

Does he have no clue how the Arab world treats the non-Muslim foreigners that they import to work for them?

Even if true, why the hell would those in the assembly be interested in U.S. domestic job numbers?They must think this guy is the one of the biggest puffed up idiots in history.

14. I'm listening, know your enemy.

I'm waiting for him to go off script. Not happening so far. It sounds like he's been rehearsing. He is not stumbling on the big words as he often does when reading. I wonder who wrote this, it sure wasn't him.

Some of the expressions of his audience are amusing. Some seem rather bored.

He just said something about people using god towards their goals. Pot, is that kettle black?

17. He's doing well

Which is the bare minimum required of any other president. Since the bar is so low for Cheetolini, I'm sure we'll get a bunch of talking heads swooning "ohhh, he's soooo presidential" and such.

He seems to be graded as if he is in preschool by many in the media.

15. He won't say radical Islam

He hasn't said it. He's rope a doped around it, but he won't do or say exactly llwhat they criticized Obama harshly for not doing.

I wonder why?

I can't imagine how miserable it must be to host that cheeto-colored gasbag and listen to him drone on about himself all day.

31. Don't Muslims have to pray five times a day?

the reason I ask is that if they do then they all have an excuse to just get up and leave to pray. That way they can pray for this torture to end.
