General consensus is he or his old man bought his way through school.


The older brother, Fred, got into Wharton on merit while The Donald started at a less noteworthy school and for some reason the old man bought a whole new building for something like 5 million and The Donald entered Wharton as an undergrad.

He has his base convinced that he walked the walk he talked. Other people point out that The Donald never made the Dean's List at Wharton, which is public information. Making the Wharton's Dean List means having averaged a high B. I would have thought that a rich boy with money to buy homework and papers could manage a high B but seeing as how GWB who did buy "help" was a C average at Harvard so I guess that rich boys can't simply buy grades at prestigious schools and maybe have to take and flunk their own tests. Comparing speech and lie frequency I'd say that GWB is smarter than DJT but less ruthless, crude and low which is why the Republicans had Cheney as his vice. Hey, Trump in office is a symptom of a much deeper political disease.

And he resides in Arizona.  At this moment in human history that cannot be a good combination.

Not only did Trump tweet that but regarding the Buffalo incident he tweeted something along the line of;
"could be an ANTIFA provocateur" who "was pushed away after appearing to scan police communications in order to black out the equipment." The President continued by saying, "I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set up?"

This is a 75 year old alone in front of around 100 police officers, judge for yourself;

When was the last time anyone heard a police person (junior or senior) saying "sorry, we got that wrong" - and not just in the USA.

Police "management" has either no control over its front line staff or it doesn't care what they do - as long as nobody complains.

Having said that I'm sure there are many considerate and caring officers but their contributions are demeaned by this bully-boy behaviour of their colleagues.

With the Israeli-Palestine example, authoritarians see what they want -- self-perpetuating job security and the chance to kill people. In a Police State, they have Star-Power.

But The Donald keeps creating his own new normal like he's digging a pipeline to China. (sssh! that a secret!)

It is not a secret that the USA is "officially" in recesssion but lets hear what El-Cheeto has to say about that.

(crickets chirping)

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

I heard a Republican saying pretty much "We knew that Trump would tear up the rule book but expected that his behaviour would moderate once he was in office. Now with over three years of empirical evidence I have to conclude that there is a crazy person in the White House, we have a crazy person as President".

But the same buttcrack will vote to keep The BS President in the oval orifice.

I saw his 2015 words when Obama pointed out unemployment falling, that unemployment figures lie.
In 2020 he's using falling unemployment as some kind of Trump (read: BS) Economic Miracle.

We went from a deficit of about 400B to a deficit of 1000B and massive "permanent" tax cuts for corporations while citizens get cuts that end in 2024 so that someone else gets blamed for their taxes rising which is yet more strategically planned BS.

I wish the SOB gets the virus bad since he's helped so much to spread it so wildly just to play politics.
When Canute ordered the incoming tide to retreat, at least it was only *his* feet that got wet.

No it cannot. My son works for a fast food place, and his store was closed a week ago because two employees came down with covid. He was told that all employees who were potentially exposed needed to get a virus test (the one with the q-tip shoved up your nose) negative result before they could return to work. He figured "cool, I'll just hop over to CVS and get a test, take a week or so off, and then go back to work.

Instead he took the week off first, and yesterday went to CVS. No dice, no tests available. Nextcare, Walgreens clinic, Fry's clinic, Honor Health, all the same story. All these places that were bursting at the seams with tests a month ago have no tests left.

Uncharacteristically, I turned on the news (Channel 15, the Phoenix ABC affiliate) this evening. The first story was that in the state of Arizona there were 7200 fewer tests done yesterday than the day before. Wow.

Now I'm sure that none of this has anything to do with the meeting between Trump and Ducey on Tuesday at the Trump rally (in an SRO megachurch in Phoenix. I can only guess that slowing testing was the topic of discussion. It's important to Trump that the thousands of new infections not be reflected in any upcoming reports, cause he really wants Arizona not to swing blue.

Arizona also hit its highest number of covid deaths yesterday.
What, I need to say something else too?

Der Feurher has stated that there will be LESS TESTING since when they test the numbers go up.

He doesn't care about Americans getting the virus, just about how the numbers don't make him look good.

Maybe we just stop testing altogether and it will finally go away like it was supposed to in April. The rise is the fault of testing, if we don't test then nobody has it, sick people will have some other diseases, TOO BAD!, and we can get back to business.

I've seen this before when we had a president named Reagan. Four years after he made massive cuts to public education it was shown that American SAT scores had fallen A LOT. So in 1986 the fix was instituted, America got easier SAT's and has since.

America has been falling behind for close to 40 years. We can't be a first world power with second class education let alone "Great Again". It's too bad the willfully ignorant have joined forces with the stupidly ignorant to keep us losing place.

needed to get a virus test (the one with the q-tip shoved up your nose)
Just out of curiosity, do those tests give an immediate result - i.e. within a few minutes of taking the swab ?

They say it takes 3 to 5 days. As I understand it, a positive means the virus is currently active in the patient.

The other kind, the one that takes minutes uses whole blood as the sample, and determines if the patient has SARS-CO19 antibodies, meaning they had it at some time, but does not say if they have it now. It is less reliable than the nose swab test.
