Solid post Alpha. I agree with most of it but I do think there is some distinction between cheating on your wide WHILE you're the POTUS in the oval office and doing so 10 years prior when you were not involved in politics and just a celebrity/private citizen. Not defending Trump's actions re: cheating on his wife and I agree his morality and judgement (past and present) aren't always what we would all prefer for the POTUS. But he's not (that we know of) sneaking girls in like JFK did, or sodomizing interns in the Oval. So imho your actions WHILE President should be judged different that your actions 10 years before you entered the public arena of politics. But I do get your point...

So you're assuming that a man who openly womanized all his life has suddenly stopped?

I don't think he is currently cheating on his wife with porn stars are random chicks, but other than that I'd say no to that question.

I believe he has likely compartmentalized and not acted out on that aspect of his personality while being POTUS b/c the ramifications are way different as POTUS than there were for him in 2006 when nobody really cared (relative to now). I'd imagine with the amount of leaks that have come out of the WH that if random chicks were being shuffled in and out there would be a story on it.

I'm not implying or buying into some newfound morality from Trump since becoming President. I was making a point of your actions as a celebrity/private citizen can be very different from those actions as POTUS a decade later. Just as your actions as a low-level employee would likely be different than if your were in a C-level position. Not saying your morality changes, just that the decision to act on those impulses can, and often does change based on what you have to lose.

It's a sad state of affairs that this..."president" has someone with my admittedly "questionable moral background" calling bullshit.

I seriously doubt this is something the Trumpster ever really wanted. I also doubt this is something he never really, truly believed he'd achieve.

His (in)actions since being elected just scream of someone who was completely un-prepared for this. He's acting like I did, when I didn't really prepare or fully understand my final for Calc 3, in college. Except, I wasn't the "leader" of the free world. Or have nukes at my disposal. Or Marilyn Monroe.

And when I panicked and freaked out...it didn't (potentially) change LIVES.

This guy is an embarrassment, by ANY reasonable definition of the term. That doesn't mean he can accidentally do or achieve some good things. The problem is...that it'll be by accident.

True.

Unfortunately, those 47%ers are inbred, hillbilly, rednecks that don't give a rat's ass about anything other than "Murica First" and "Lock her up" and other assorted non-sense.

They no nothing of "history" or other associated, educated platforms. They LIVE on sound bites and tweets. He who is the most outrageous, wins.

I’ve seen a number of roasts that were hilarious, but I watched this one and she finished really flat. Unless sh was going for the Norm MacDonald “I’m bombing on purpose to be funny on another level,” but I didn’t get that impression. The dude from last year was a lot funnier.

Get that view.. my take was it became extremely awkward and some didn't want to be viewed as taking a side.

Whatever the case (funny vs not) i thought it was extremely balls-y.. and thus I enjoyed it

A Leftist ridiculing a woman the Left does not like in front of a crowd of Leftist journalists is ballsy? Where is the courage in going after low-hanging fruit in front of a partisan crowd?

This nasty bitch was just using the platform to get noticed and make more money.

The WHCD is literally always a comedian bashing the President/administration. At least that's a lot of what I remember from the last few administrations. The reason it appears to be worse for the Trump White House is not due to partisan vitriol, it's simply that they're a wealth of material that has never been seen before.

No need to worry about my feelings as I actually enjoyed it as well. I love when the Left shows its ass, it’s true colors. You all just handed Trump another victory.

You think Independents enjoyed those abortion, baby-killing jokes? Only Leftists were titillated by that spiel.
