Well, there is no avoiding it so we might as well have a dedicated thread to the Trump presidency. Just keep it civil. ;)

Love Trump? Hate Trump? Don't care? Hear any good Trump jokes lately?

So what do you guys/gals think about all of this stuff with Trump and Russia? Seems like everyday new connections are being revealed.

His joint news conference with Bibi Netanyahu was embarrassing. He's for one state...then nope, he's not. Then he is again. Had Bibi been wearing a clown suit with a matching dunce hat, he still would have been the superior leader at the podium.
<runs screaming back into denial>:ROFLMAO:

So... what do people think of the current Trump/Russia issues?

I think a narrative is starting to be spun that, yes, various Trump family & staff had contact with Russia, lied about it, but were too naive and/or dumb to realize that they were being groomed by Russian government intelligence agents.

The contacts won't be the Trump admin downfall but the constant lying & obstruction will be.

Overall where there's smoke there's fire, when's this guy getting shown the door?

I don't think Americans are quite aware of the damage he is doing to foreign relations, even Oz which is fairly on the easy side with U.S bipartisan relationships are starting to question continued commitments to a Country with an unstable leadership ... and that's from our revolving door of leadership.

American office of President no longer has the prestige it had prior to Trump ascending the "throne", we can still get Jeb Bush right?

Oh, we knew you guys 'down under' weren't happy way back when he supposedly hung up the phone while talking to PM Turnbull. He seems to have an amazing knack for annoying US allies while cozying up to Putin.

LOL, Trump annoys me and I'm pretty easy going.
He annoyed me from the moment I first saw him a few decades ago.
I think people are just batshait crazy to elect him as president.
But Clinton would have been even worse.
We get what we deserve.

I hope the outside of USA knows the majority of Americans aren't happy with Trump.
There's just too much. :meh:
The latest aggravation for me-
He had time to tweet blame on the "Fake Media" yet didn't have one word for the heroes on a train in Portland, Oregon.

Because the men killed were defending a muslim girl; Trump has repeatedly shown that he'll stay clear away from the topic.

And now today he's announcing pulling out of the Paris agreement, which was mostly symbolic anyway. There is just no reason for the US to formally break the agreement.

For the "#TrumpRussia" debacle, it is getting hard to keep up with the near daily barrage of new information being leaked out.

Leaked or generated?
Well, since ol' Donny & the GOP are not disputing what is getting leaked, just that there are leaks, and that a lot of them have been getting corroborated, I'd say "leaked" is the correct word to use.

Now what will be interesting is whether he'll try to block Comey from testifying between now & Tuesday.

Only the libtards living off welfare, my taxes, can stay home and watch.
Don't be shocked but not everybody who is able to watch the news live is at home and/or on welfare and/or is a liberal.
Thursday, Comey testifies at 10:00 am. I want to skip work & stay home to watch it. :D
I'll make a big pot of Covfefe too.
Are any odds being taken on whether he'll claim executive privilege? At least that'd be a better excuse than "I don't feel it is appropriate" to answer.

Although I do consider myself a proud Libtard, I somehow managed to skip work on that Thursday just to watch Comey...on my own dime! A miracle!
