    • When Trump entered the presidential race last year most thought he did so for petty narcssistic reasons. I suspected he did so for a substantial narcissistic reason — he intends to make history, not by mere symbolism alone ala Obama (first affirmative action hire at that level), but by fixing problems and getting things done in a dramatic way (like winning election despite massive opposition from the Demonrat and cuckservative factions and limiting his expenditures to half that of the opposition). I have no doubt he will bust his ass to be a success so his name becomes synonymous with excellence in political leadership.

      A man like Trump enjoys the challenge of work so it really isn’t work to him. I’m sure he’ll have days where he takes part of a day to do something with his family, but he won’t be taking weeks at Martha’s Vineyard types of vacations. He said early on in his campaign that there’s too much work to do to be out on the golf course. This is the kind of person we need to save this country.

    It is so great to see the idea of how important msm thinks they are, not yet realizing the electorate has move on! Time for new networks, smart honest persons asking questions! No more puppet agenda drivers reading the agenda script, promote fake stories or create crisis soap opera!
    Might be consider a good interview, maybe?

    Dumb questions, gotcha carp standard boiler plate boring photo opts for the most dishonest people on the planet! Captain Kangroo at least had content.

      The mainstream media still control the news info to the masses. Sure, some people such as those here at CTH have moved on (although a lot of people here still tune in to networks like Fox, which is just another MSM outlet and shouldn’t be supported), but most Americans still get what little news they pay attention to from either the mainstream broadcast media or from the newsbreak during the drive time radio shows they listen to. The media isn’t going anywhere. They’re here to stay and fight to destroy Trump. Trump’s election was only a very small first step in what needs to be done to save this coutnry.

      Unfortunately the law only requires them to reimburse the government the cost of a commercial airline ticket, which is what the Obama’s have done. We will never be repaid for all they cost us… and their vacations were the small costs they brought upon the American people.

    It is sad that Eric Trump will no longer be able to raise $$$ for St. Jude’s Hospital Cancer Research. Who loses? The children for whom the research is being done to help them beat the dreaded disease. And why? Because the Communist Left want to use his charitable foundation as a weapon against those who have called out the Clinton Foundation for its crimes.

    This is not going to sit well with Americans who have children fighting cancer, or who have themselves donated to St. Jude’s Hospital. Just one more reason to detest and despise the left. I hope and expect this will blow back on them. How will they feel if their children/grandchildren have to rely on St. Jude’s for help? I can’t imagine that the medical staff will look kindly upon these miserable cretins even as they care for their children.

      Who said he won’t be able to raise money for them? I heard that they shut down an effort to have coffee with Ivanka as a fundraiser, but I didn’t hear Eric will never again be able to raise money for them. Please post a link to whatever it is you read that says he can’t fundraise for them anymore. He already gave $20 million to them some time ago and has been a supporter for a long time. I would think he’d fight to support them and look for other ways to raise money.

      • I don’t understand either; why can’t he raise money for charitable organizations? None of it is going into his pocket….makes no sense.


      • churchmouse says:

        ‘The fate of the foundation remains unclear, family members said. Among the options are to shut it down or rename it, or to distance Eric Trump in some other way from any fund-raising efforts …

        ‘The Trump family, through its hotels, may still accept smaller donations sent directly to St. Jude’s, or other causes, a family member said. But it will no longer first send the money to a family-controlled charity.’

    Well considering the heat the Trumps have taken, and will take EVERY day, Eric accomplishes nothing. They will damn him no matter WHAT he does, so why not go ahead with the foundation? It isn’t as if anyone who counts will “learn a lesson” from kids being deprived of care. Only the true victims will suffer, not the moonbats. It’s like the criminal offenses of the Clintons….we can rant forever, to what avail?

    i’m not being facetious but i am needing some clarity. if trump is working for a salary of a buck a year then how will he be paying for his expenses…there have to be some for daily ‘stuff’…will he be given an allowance from the estate? a cash account to draw from? if the left were to get their wish they would enjoy seeing him cut off completely from his family and fortune.

    Stepping away from the job for a refresh can be very very good for one’s performance if not emotional and mental health. I for one think he needs to have some time away, realizing of course that when you are followed around by the man with the special briefcase, you are always on the job to a certain extent.

      Everyday a person takes off work they lose 3- 5+% effectiveness in their jobs. A two week vacation is like a 50% drop. The heart attack myth for hard workers is a myth. Heart attacks are more closely related to personal relationship issues.

      • Totally agree, Bob, based on personal experience as well as observation of others. What people who are not Type A types who also love what they do, it is incomprehensible that anyone could love doing it all the time.
        You are really right about relationship ship issues. I would just refine your statement to include relationships as work. To me, the biggest path to good, long-term health is the feeling that you have control over the direction of your life.
        Benjamin Franklin lived to age 84, started off poor, traveled abundantly, suffered from gout and kidney stones. But he loved politics, women, diplomacy, women, food, women, writing and politics.

        Hmmm, if that is a linear relationship, I guess a month off would mean I couldn’t function at all.


  14. Give it time says:

    First time I have seen an interview with the new press secretary… IMHO he is not a good pick. He stumbles a bit over words and allowed even Maria to attack a bit. He comes across as “political” reminds me of the current press sec for Obama.


  15. NJF says:

    Boy Spicer is a bit on the hyper side.

    This was the only one I watched bc I can’t bear to listen to these other idiots.

    He came off well, but Maria is a friendly.

    I’m sure he’ll get his sea legs.

      Good observations, Maria seemed a bit in attack mode looking for wrong things, Spicer perhaps a bit prickly and hyped up. He needs to calm down a smidgen and maybe develop a sense of humor. He should take a page from Mr Trump’s playbook and take only so much until he turns things around and can say “hold on a minute is this an interview or an inquisition….”


  16. luke says:

    The thing that impressed me most during the campaign is the unbelievable work ethic. The guy is ridiculous. I have always been told if you work hard good things will happen. That lesson was never more apparent then this election cycle. I knew a guy in my previous line of work that used to have a saying, “My competition may be smarter and more educated than I am but I’ll be damn if that SOB can out work me.”

    I am dedicating myself to be more like Trump in my endeavors by trying to follow the pattern of his work habits. I’m 40 years old and that guy could work me under the table but I am committing myself to improvement nonetheless.

        Trump really should set aside a week here and there with Melania and Barron. Maybe 3-4 months startoff to sort things out, then a long weekend. Another couple months, a week.

    I am not sure that I agree that Trump is to never take a vacation. Being my background is psychology, I know that is not good for you mentally, physically, and spiritually. I know that Trump is a workaholic and has Type A tendencies. Nevertheless, carrying the weight of the Presidency on his shoulders for 4 to 8 years will take its toll on him over time. I know he is up to the task more than any other President, but even he needs to take a vacation, even if it is a weekend getaway, from time to time. Make it a “true” vacation and not a working vacation. He and his staff risk burnout.

    I read an article somewhere that quoted Anthony Scarmucci as saying that basically “DC cannot handle too much change and Trump’s young administration with many “outsiders” depends on its survival. So it looks like Trump is putting folks into the Cabinet that are “political” in some way…that makes sense.


  20. Midnight Rambler says:

    President Elect Trump is the man. He should at least do a Nixon style Friday evening to Sunday afternoon Camp David thing now and then just to get a little quiet time.


  21. decisiontime16 says:

    Just the Hawaiian vacations the obamas have taken cost us 35 million. Not to mention the trips by Michelle and the girls.
    His constant golf outings are another matter also. Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise as he would have done even more damage if “working”.


  22. Buck Turgidson says:

    Maria friggin calm down, when are you and the mainstream media going to acknowledge that Mr Trump is 100X the president that obama will be, and calm down with your constant attacks on his staff. The interviews w obama and his minions are nothing but softballs, interviews w Trump and his people are like attacks and interrogations. Just ask questions. Stop attacking, stop the gotchas, stop trying to make a name for yourself. I am so sick of the mainstream leftist communist media and yes this includes CNBC.
