I keep seeing people report that he though the presidency would be *easer than his former life*. That's not what he said! He thought the presidency would be easier than the presidency ended up being.

He thought it would be less work. I don't know if the difference is worth splitting hairs over, but TECHNICALLY you are correct.

"Not embarassed to admit" ignorance is near the top of positive human traits, right? Does Gruber want Trump more blustery? To double down on whatever his initial wrong ideas were? He'd get us into a war in the Middle East doing that.

The election is old news to everyone but leftists who continue fantasizing about Russian hacking.

Well, "Mac pro is Dead", are you saying that Reuters misquoted him? Because that is a quote...

"anonymous" - looks like it is not over for DJT, because he keeps on bringing it up, as was the point made...

The Reuters headline is:

> Exclusive: Trump says he thought being president would be easier than his old life

I don't think that exact comparison is there in the actual quote.

"I thought it would be easier.” could just as easily refer to his initial thoughts of the presidency vs. the reality.

Shouldn't we be more worried if he thought otherwise? There is no preparation for the presidency. The weight is enormous, the burden unyielding, the responsibility total. This is an admission of humility from a very proud man. And it's something we've seen from many presidents before him.

Gruber is so desperate to attack Trump, he's lost the ability to distinguish between what is and is not legitimate criticism.

This isn't why *anyone* comes to your blog, Gruber. You're literally just posting political memes that anyone who follows politics saw a day or more earlier.

I'm voted democrat for over a decade. I'm sick of the sanctimonious bullshit.

Greatest President. Because every day is opposite day in Trump's world.

Kinda like how in years past, Trump was always so desperate to attack Obama, eh?

Do we really doubt that millions of illegal aliens voted in this election?

That's not including the American-born children of illegal aliens, none of whom are actually citizens.

> Do we really doubt that millions of illegal aliens voted in this election?

leftists are more willing to look into baseless accusations of russian hacking than they are into the widespread voter fraud by illegal aliens. shameful.

11 intelligence agencies said there were hacks from Russia and there are countless people under Trump—including Trump—with really questionable ties to Russia… but her emails.

So much for draining the swamp. Half of Goldman Sachs is on his team and the other half he's related to, not to mention that his only reason for being president is to use it to financially benefit his businesses.

You fuckers are nothing but a bunch of insecure hypocrites who have issues with "blacks" and woman having something you can never achieve. Grow some fucking balls, losers.

Yes, but if *you* know that, then why didn't Trump also know that?

That's the crux of the issue. Regardless of what people think of him domestically, nobody out here respects the US anymore.
