    President Trump's official visit to the UK is this Friday. We have a very old building (11th century) called the Tower of London that we might reopen as a special hotel.....just for him. Unless you all want him back USA :rommie:

    P.S He arrived today not Friday..oops!

    If the "hotel" idea doesn't work out, give him infinite rides on The Eye and tell him it's a rocket ship in his Space Force, and that he's driving it, because he's the bestest big boy pilot we could find.

    Yes, you go zoom zoom, Mr. President. You go zoom zoom.

    Well if reports are to be believed he is largely avoiding London, perhaps because their likely will be large crowds of protestors, though I'm sure he would spin it as No US President has ever been meet with such large crowds for a visit.

    I think he's envious that no one has done one of these for him:

    Just don't talk about him or his policies after he hops on his plane and leaves early.

    He HATES that.

    He is going to nip this whole female Doctor idea in the bud. He identifies with a character who is suppose to be a somewhat weird looking white male with funny hair and funny looking clothes and thinks he is the greatest savior of humanity of all time.

    In case he doesn't visit The Tower, over here in Germany we have the world's second deepest hole...
    The deepest one is in Russia but his buddies there won't let him get near it while I wouldn't quite put it past Mrs Merkel to give him a hearty slap on the back just at the right moment :D

    Now I'm picturing Merkel saying "This. Is. SPARTA!"

    Correction, though. Not to practice American Exceptionalism, but I think you'll find the world's bigliest hole is in fact Donald Trump himself.

    Problem is, people have counted before and were, in one word, surprised. 2016 is not exactly ancient history long forgotten as well, noting that there were other surprises in 2014, 2010, 2000, 2004 for the Democrats, 2008 for Republicans, et cetera, et cetera. In other words, what happens if you are wrong and the year becomes 2025?

    Except that is a comment, which also suggests (but does not confirm) you agreed and acquiesced to the reality that there were people who did expect Democrats to win but did not during those years. Not always for the same reasons, but even in 2000 people still can't agree on the causes for the outcome, even making scapegoats.

    Of course, the reply of "no comment" has other possible connotations, equally unconfirmed. Including but not limited to skepticism, disbelief, or feeling I am "full of it" - that is your prerogative.

    Now many are going to hope you're right. Isn't reality a better state to operate in? Reality is that nobody knows how the next election will turn out. Especially when we're a couple years away from the next Presidential election.

    In the end, does it matter?

    My reactions. I think my track record is pretty good, for the most part. Presidential Elections since 2000 in bold. Midterms not.

    2000 --> Was and wasn't a surprise to me at the same time. Gore was stiff, robotic, and what happened with Clinton a little bit earlier had to have turned off some swing voters.
    2002 --> Wasn't a surprise to me, in the wake of post-9/11.
    2004 --> A disappointment but not a surprise. Bush's popularity had waned since 9/11 but not enough.
    2006 --> No surprise. --> The Republicans were toast after Katrina and the housing market collapsed.
    2008 --> No surprise.
    2010 --> No surprise. --> The President's party usually loses seats in Congress in Midterms.
    2012 --> No surprise.
    2014 --> No surprise. --> See 2010. And 2006 for that matter.
    2016 --> Surprise!

    So, I've only been genuinely surprised exactly once.

    Feel free to keep him while he is over there. Most of us don't want him back.

    To the person who hit notify on a post in this thread. Correctly identifying a white male as a white male is not, in fact, racism. Just in case you wanted to know why we permitted this travesty of a completely accurate and non-controversial observation to stand unchallenged. That is all.
