There's a matter of reasonable presidential behavior. Surely you can differentiate what is fairly decent/reasonable behavior from that which is not. I'm rather irritated by your comment. Why do you need to be so rude?
    You can be as irritated as you like, its a free country.

    Do you really believe that the entire Presidential trip will go without amythhing that irritates you? What do you think the odds are of that? You are predisposed to being anmoyed by Trump, do you agree?

    As far as differentiation, has there already been some action of the President in this
    G20 summit that we need to dissect and determine as "decent/reasonable" or otherwise?

    I believe Clinton was inappropriate with one woman...not Presidential but Trump is offensive to ALL woman! Therein, lies the difference!

    Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Wiley and Kathy Shelton ....that makes five but who's counting? Look, I agree....you have the right to choose who you are offended by but to say there's much of a difference is a stretch.

    "Predisposed"? I don't care what political side anyone is one. His personal behaviors should concern anyone and everyone. He's egotistical and unstable. I realize that republicans don't want to lose their advantage in the White House/Congress. But accepting or ignoring Trump's various irrational/self-serving/juvenile behaviors just doesn't make sense. I respect those republican congresspeople who believe in some of Trump's ideas/plans, but totally do not accept his behavior. And if you find nothing wrong with his behavior......well, that's your "right"........but I find it very curious that one might accept this continuing behavior in any U.S. president.

    Are you expecting to find any of Trump's behavior at this conference acceptable?

    What was the point of your thread here? I see it as a vent and that is no problem with that, but is that what you intended?

    "Offensive to all women" is hyperbole. I know plenty of women for whom he is not "offensive," and I think you mean this as he is sexist. You dont get to speak for all women.

    I find both Clinton's past attitude and Trump's attitude toward women offensive. They are both wrong and it's not just women who are offended. I think the best presidential comparison outside of womanizing is Nixon and Trump except Nixon created the EPA and Trump is working at dismantling it.

    I could see Trump and Putin comparing wrestling holds at the summit.

    Personally I'm waiting to see the handshake. Not that I'd like a US president to fall flat on his face from a handshake but if Twump does then oh well. Maybe karma is real after all.

    Putin has written a pretty good book about competitive judo, holds high-ranked black belts in judo, karate, and sambo, and has experience in Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestling. Some of the belts are not honorary - he legitimately competed in his youth. He's still pretty spry, and actively promotes the sports.

    I think he'd break Trump in half with a handshake.

    One can only hope.
