Im sure there was some fudging of the numbers, but you should use different photos if you want to prove your point.  First photo, trump is leaning sideways so thats no good......second one Trumps shoulder is noticeably higher than Trudeaus, so he actually does look taller.  Hard to tell with the mop of hair

Keep fighting the good fight whitey

Don given a clean bill of health by the White House Doctor

6'3 tall and weighing 239 lbs - which puts him 1 inch or 1lb short of being clinically obese.

Here is 6'3 Trump standing next to 6'1 Obama




and next to 6'2 Trudeau





There's already been the birther movement - is this the start of the girther movement?

Haha...good one

https://www.politico.com/amp/story/2018/01/17/trump-credibility-capitol-hill-lawmakers-negotiating-342989

Donald Trump ran for president as a bipartisan deal-maker. But if there's one thing he's proven after a year in office, he’s better at killing bipartisan deals than clinching them.

On the cusp of a deal for the second time with Democrats to enshrine protections for 700,000 young undocumented immigrants, Trump once again destroyed the underpinnings of the potential agreement. After nixing any potential Dreamers deal last fall with “Chuck and Nancy” — Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — this time Trump blew up a tentative agreement during a meeting in the Oval Office. He used racially charged language and later publicly mocked Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who had said Trump told him just hours earlier they had an agreement.

so the stormy daniels interview has been released by in touch magazine, as well as the polygraph she passed and the witnesses interviews. And while I think it is hilarious, it doesn't really impact his ability to be president, the question is now- what does Melania do?

Really? Where'd you get that figure from?

This article says "Apple said it expected to invest over $30 billion in the United States over the next 5 years, and would create 20,000 jobs through hiring at existing campuses and through opening a new campus."

It's from their press release

https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180117005748/en/

Quote
Combining new investments and Apple's current pace of spending with domestic suppliers and manufacturers — an estimated $55 billion for 2018 — Apple's direct contribution to the US economy will be more than $350 billion over the next five years, not including Apple's ongoing tax payments, the tax revenues generated from employees' wages and the sale of Apple products.

Planned capital expenditures in the US, investments in American manufacturing over five years and a record tax payment upon repatriation of overseas profits will account for approximately $75 billion of Apple's direct contribution.

Can you even imagine if it had been Obama these allegations came out about (Fox News would be fit to be tied!! ;D) or George W Bush??

Trump... ok, that’s today’s semi-interesting page 8 story...

Porn stars, racism, corruption, daily naked, bald-faced lies... how low can the bar go??
