Spite fuels the Republican Party.

Without it, they'd have nothing.

- Spite fuels the Republican Party.

Trump is a spiteful, petty person, whose behavior is an embarrassment to civil humanity.

And yet 90% of MSM news articles regarding Trump are some variation of spiteful hate and cheering humiliation.

The majority of #resist has become the monster they purport to hate; petty and spiteful.

Their utter lack of self-awareness is astounding.

To spite Obama

It didn't take a leak to figure that one out. Obama gave Trump quite a beating over that birther business and spite is the one thing Trump does the best. He's been trying to destroy the Obama presidency ever since.

It's one of Trump's many sicknesses. He just can't tolerate the fact that Obama was (and still is) the better man.

And Michelle was a terrific First Lady, too. You could see the love between the two of them.

Not like that cardboard cutout that Trump likes to show off. Melania is an attractive woman but she has the social presence of a potted plant.

You must mean, 'less evil'.

Thank you REDIAL

Actually, I'm more interested in NULLI's strong reaction to a loving relationship between a happily married couple like Obama and Michelle.

It's probably been a while since anybody's looked at him with that special sparkle in their eyes.

I look at Obama and Michelle and I see something genuine.

I look at Trump and Melania and I see . . . a contract.

I look at Trump and Melania and I see ... a contract.

And a simple contract: "I don't touch your money, and you don't touch me."

You're probably right. I think there was a "one and done" clause in that contract, too They named him Barron.

It's self-evident.

But no Trumpite watches black and white movies, so wasted.

Yet more proof Trump does things out of hateful emotion. You know what's saved us so far? His immense yellow streak. He's no Julius Caesar. Millions of us can't seem to get out of his way regardless.

The orange sloth declares Obama's Iranian nuclear disarmament deal "the worst deal in history" and tears it up. Through the entire process Ahmadinejad insisted negotiating with the USA was a waste of time, since the USA is incapable of upholding any agreement. Moderate Rouhani, and anyone who voted for him, looks like a complete fool for negotiating the JCPOA. Now Trump is in Obama's mess, slip-sliding into a war with Iran that everyone with half a brain knows will destroy the world economy. Except, Obama's path to avoid war is closed.

The debacles in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and elsewhere are living proof of total incompetence. American influence in the Middle East is near zero. The fates of Gaddafi, after he gave up his weapons, Saddam, after he asked April Glaspie for permission to invade Kuwait, and Noriega, after running the CIA drug trade, expose the Former United States as a double-crosser par excellence. Even if you wanted to be their lacky it's impossible to determine what they want. The real problem is that the United States is played out, but its deep state spies will never admit it.

Like I tell my kids. I want you to succeed so if you do it to spite me then fine. Success is its own reward. But, it won't make you a good person and your karma will definitely suck.

I always thought trump's code name was "Stable Genius".

As in "The Stable Genius has left the Barn."

Or the Stable Genius has fallen. And it can't get up!

Avoided a thread about the UK Ambassador's opinion that Trump left the Iran deal to spite Obama? You think he has some valuable insight about the ex-Ambassador's opinion?

1 country leaving a non-binding agreement is still not what any honest person would call 'tear[ing] it up'.

negotiating with the USA was a waste of time, since the USA is incapable of upholding any agreement
Agreements made with the country are handled via treaty. That provides the ability of the Senate to perform their duty in representing the states adherence to the agreement.
Agreements made with the president are binding only as long as that president remains in office - and chooses to remain so bound. This was discussed ad nauseum in the thread regarding the Senate's open letter to Iran reminding them that no agreement was binding on the country unless it was in the form of a treaty.

Donald Trump operates out of spite and vindictiveness; not out of respect for procedure and especially not law.

Donald Trump's other motivations include greed and bloody-minded pride, the later flowing from his florid mental illness and helping to explain why he seeks to degrade others as much as he does.

The only success Trump is having is due to the work of PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATIONS especially the Obama Administration.

#29 - Trumps is merely feeding his inbred and FAS riddled base.

But you are correct, Trump is bat•••• crazy.
