Apparently, after watching a Fox News story about an anti-Trump protest which featured either flag burning or some form of flag desecration, Trump took to twitter to vent some rage. While flag burning is indeed controversial, Trump outdoes himself by claiming that not only should flag burning be illegal and punishable, it should be punishable by loss of citizenship

Not only has flag burning been ruled constitutional by the Supreme Court, with the ultra-conservative Scalia even going on record saying that flag burning is protected by the Constitution, but the federal government cannot revoke the citizenship of a natural born person as punishment for a crime AT ALL.

In fact, NO level of government on the local, state, or federal level can revoke citizenship as punishment for a crime. A state or government can revoke voting rights, jail people for life, fine them, or even put them to death, but revoking citizenship as a form of punishment for a crime is not one of the things that the US can do for the most part. The only way a person can lose citizenship is if they give it up voluntarily, or if an immigrant who only recently gained citizenship commits some sort of act that undermines US national security ( http://immigration.findlaw.com... ) which flag burning does not qualify as.

Trump is not even president yet (he's still only the president-elect) but he has already been so offended by protestors that he has called for a legal activity to be punished by something that no aspect of the US government can enforce on people who are natural citizens who have been here for over 10 years. Not by the President, Congress, a state government, or any court on any level.

On top of that, the allegation that Hillary Clinton benefitted from millions of illegal votes (another conspiracy based on pure BS that Trump believes in) was pointed out as false by CNN. Trump then began attacking CNN for being biased towards Hillary, even calling out the very reporter who explained there were not millions of illegal votes.

http://money.cnn.com...

His own transition team cant even produce evidence to back up his claims, and Newt Gingrich has even talked about the need for someone to check Trumps own tweets before he sends them out, indicating that even HE thinks Trump is full of sh*t.....

This double-whammy beings the current list of things that Trump the snowflake has now complained about to the following, and he is still months away from being sworn in as president:

1) Trump cries about how the cast from 'Hamilton' lectured Mike Pence after a show
2) Trump cries about a NYT report that highlights how messy his transition team is
3) Trump cries about flag burning being a legal form of speech
4) Trump cries about CNN reporting there were not millions of illegal votes cast for HRC

Maybe Trump is investing too much time on tweeting and not enough time on the US.

How long does it take to make a Tweet? A minute? And he has spent enough time on the US to win a general election. He has also been filling up his administration rather quickly.

It would not be a big deal if Trump was just another rich celebrity buffoon. But he is the POTUS. His tweets make all Americans seem like crybaby snowflakes.

Selecting his administration is his job. The sooner the better.

Let's see:

30 min to read Info wars
1 min to tweet
---------------------------
31 min total

More revealing let's see how much time he has given a press conference in the last 4 months.

So now the president-elect can't read the news? This is getting out of hand.

Who cares about press conferences other than, you know, the press?

How do you figure? Does having a black president make us all black? Does having a billionaire president make us all billionaires?

The personality, actions, and mannerisms of any leader reflect on that group. Obviously physical characteristics do not.

It also makes crybaby snowflakes feel like their whinyness is justified. After all, if the President behaves that way, why can't they.

Like the lady in the below video.

Once again, I disagree. One should go off of approval ratings, not the president himself. If a president has an approval rating of less than 50%, then we can safely assume he hardly reflects the people of the country at all.

I guess? I mean, I have never known anyone to simply pick up habits of presidents. Obama loves golf, but I do not believe more people started playing golf over the past eight years.

I agree that is the President has bad approval ratings, people can say his reflects less on the country. That is why it is important to criticize Trump for this in hopes that he smartens up when he takes office. He if keeps acting this way in office, the people may want to think of writing congress to impeach him.

I guess? I mean, I have never known anyone to simply pick up habits of presidents. Obama loves golf, but I do not believe more people started playing golf over the past eight years.

Obviously people do not pick up hobbies of their leaders. But if a leader behaves in a certain way, it justifies the behavior of others. When people see a leader doing something, they assume it is okay to do. That is why good leaders lead by example.

If a CEO of Executive takes bribes, his employees may feel like that is just the firms way of doing things. If the captain of a sports teams makes silly excuses for a loss, other teammates may do the same. There is behavioral economics research that supports this.

People can criticize him all they want. However, if the elections were any indication it only bolsters him.

But last time I checked it was not the Trump supporters who were flocking together to publicly whine about the election. I mean, one can pull a few examples of outlandish Trump supporters, sure. Though there have not been instances like the protests by Hillary supporters across the country. And rather than the DNC denouncing these actions, they have fed the fire with this recount nonsense. Tongue-and-cheek Tweets are not changing the behavior of Americans.

One of the most basic parts of the job of President is be an ambassador for the country. I do not see how Trump can do that. I think he has done tremendous damage already. Enemy countries will use all his statements as propaganda as to why America is the bad guy. Allied countries may just laugh it of as "stupid fuucking Americans", which still is not ideal.

Trump supporters may have drank the Trump cool aid, but they are not stupid. Most understand that Trump needs to change from how he ran his campaign to be a good POTUS. If Trump does a bad job, people will call him out.

During the campaign people did not really care, they just wanted change. Now we will see if the change was good or bad.

There are liberal, independent and conservative snowflakes. There are also reasonable people in all these groups. However, no matter what the party, the POTUS should not be a snowflake.

He does not need to change too much. In the campaign he spoke his mind, he should do the same now. He also held very lively rallies, which he wants to continue. During the campaign he was reserved when he needed to be, which is what he will more than likely do as president.

Not very many people are accusing him of being one.

I do not think Trump spoke his mind as much as he "created a show" and told people what they want to hear. Does Trump really thinking that "He will prosecute Hillary", "Build a Wall that Mexico will Pay for", "Consider banning Muslims", "Obama literally founded ISIS (not just create the vacuum", "he will drain the swamp"?

Trump won the election, but anyone can talk. Doing is another thing. Trump supporters will give him some slack, he is held to a different standard now. If he makes stupid off the cuff remarks, and makes stupid impulse decisions, he presidency will not fair well.

Of course, he created a show of sorts. He did not just walk out there and talk in a monotone voice. He was lively, loud, proud, funny, etc. These things got people in the right mood for an election. It gave them motivation to head out to the polls. Donald Trump has backed away from prosecuting Hillary, which is rather smart considering that her supporters are literally in the streets protesting. He has confirmed that the wall is absolutely a part of the agenda whenever he is asked about it. I sure hope he considers barring Muslims from entering the country. I believe it would be more appropriate to say that Obama and his administration founded ISIS. And draining the swamp is against something he has stuck to whenever asked about it.

You are right, we will have to wait and see him in action. Though I do not expect his behavior to change all that much. So yes, people on the left (and right) will still regularly cry when he makes insensitive remarks.

Actually, I care about what he says. I do not care about what he Tweets. I don't have a Twitter, so I never read them unless it trends online.

Or I just listen to his interviews and read updates on greatagain.gov.

I still think that he "told people what they want to hear" more than he spoke his mind. I do not think he ever seriously considered jailing Hillary, and do not think he ever seriously considered making Mexico pay for a big concrete wall. I just think he said what he thought would resonate with the people. I think he is an "all talk" politician. We will see.

You are right, we will have to wait and see him in action. Though I do not expect his behavior to change all that much. So yes, people on the left (and right) will still regularly cry when he makes insensitive remarks.

Others as well. Calling Trump and some of his supporters a baby is pretty common.
It was also common to laugh at the idea of winning the primary. And winning the election. So liberal circle jerks don't exactly hold a lot of water.
"If a man does not put himself in the attitude of a sinner, his prayer will not be heard before God." A brother asked him, "what is a sinful soul?" And St. Abba Moses replied, "Everyone who bears his own sins, and does not consider those of his companion."

Him winning the primary was predicted. He was the favorite in the polls the whole way. People were more laughing at the fact that a Man-Baby was going to be the nominee of the party of Lincoln.

Him winning the general was not predicted. But then again, no one really thought Hillary had a chance of winning the general before it seemed like Trump would be her opponent.

I was referring to your point about how no one is calling Trump a baby. People are. Many people are. Obviously his supporters will not. Yet, many of hi supporters are not stupid. In 4 years time, I believe many of his supporters may change their opinion of him.

Tone it down. You are investing way too much time reading (into) his tongue-and-cheek Tweets.

It would not be a big deal if Trump was just another rich celebrity buffoon. But he is the POTUS. His tweets make all Americans seem like crybaby snowflakes.

I can only imagine how many other negative stereotypes people have of Americans he will end up confirming over the next 4 years

Yes the incessant whining of the left will make me have a more negative view of Americans over the next 4 years.

Maybe Trump is investing too much time on tweeting and not enough time on the US.
How long does it take to make a Tweet? A minute? And he has spent enough time on the US to win a general election. He has also been filling up his administration rather quickly.

Selecting his administration is his job. The sooner the better.

Let's see:

30 min to read Info wars
1 min to tweet
---------------------------
31 min total

Superb! Way less time than Obama's rounds of golf. Progress!
