President Trump’s approval rating has cratered after he incited a deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, led by a dramatic drop in support among voters of his own party.

 

A new Pew Research Center poll released Friday found just 29 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing in office, by far the lowest rating he has received during his presidency. More than two in three Americans, 68 percent, disapprove of his handling of the job.

 

A majority of voters, 56 percent, say they very strongly disapprove of his job performance.

 
The rating makes Trump one of the least popular presidents of all time, a nadir comparable to the percentage of Americans who approved of Richard Nixon’s job performance when he resigned office in disgrace. Just 26 percent of Americans said they approved of Nixon’s job performance when he left office in 1974.

I just heard on CNN that Trump wants a military sendoff when he leaves next week.  Given the number of National Guard that will be in the Capital to provide protection for the inauguration, Trump will no doubt claim that he had the largest military sendoff than any other president.

I think Trump should prepare for disappointment. No parade, no elephants, and no calliope. But he'll still

leave plenty of shit for the clean-up men to get rid of.

Got this on Twitter today from 2016

A TV review of Trumps inauguration.

That is genuine and was much talked about at the time.

It's funny! - -  but since it's the internet in the age of deepfakes, can anyone actually say with any certainty if it's real or not from the first reading?

It was real:

A Scottish newspaper's TV listing of President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration has caught people's attention both in the UK and the US.

 

The Sunday Herald TV critic Damien Love reimagined the ceremony as a return of the classic science fiction series The Twilight Zone.

 

President Trump: The Inauguration

4pm, BBC One/ STV

"After a long absence, The Twilight Zone returns with one of the most ambitious, expensive and controversial productions in broadcast history. Sci-fi writers have dabbled often with alternative history stories - among the most common is the "What If The Nazis Had Won The Second World War" setting - but this huge interactive virtual reality project, which will unfold on TV, in the press, and on Twitter over the next four years, sets out to build an ongoing alternative present. 

The story begins in a nightmarish version of 2017 in which huge sections of the US electorate have somehow been duped into voting to make Donald Trump president. It sounds far-fetched, and it is, but as it goes on it becomes more and more chillingly plausible. Today's feature-length opener concentrates on the gaudy inauguration of President Trump, and the stirrings of protest and despair surrounding the ceremony, while pundits speculate gravely on what lies ahead. It's a flawed piece, but a disturbing glimpse of the horrors we could stumble into, if we're not careful."

It's worth reading the whole interview but this is especially for balticus:

DER SPIEGEL: The stock market has taken the storming of the Capitol surprisingly calmly. Why?

Roubini: Because the change of government is coming anyway, and because the results of the Senate by-elections in Georgia came in on the same day (giving the Democrats control of the Senate). That makes it easier for Biden to pump more money into stimulus programs. He will also raise taxes, though that will be harder to get through the Senate.

Acting very presidential on his last full day in office:

Can't wait until tomorrow, when we can petition Bob to change the name of this thread to "Disgraced, twice-impeached former one-term president failed reality show host guy".

The best thing we can do is to leave this thread tomorrow, so it disappears forever. This man needs to be forgotten.

Not a good idea, quote "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it". Forget him and we will have another trumpy in the Whitehouse in 20 years time!
