I've said nothing to defend Biden, but like a typical Trump brown nosing complete *****, you throw out childish insults as soon as you feel threatened. You have presented no good arguments and everything you've said here is a perfect example of how detached from reality Trump lovers are.
lol you have some serious Trump hang ups. I guess it's the Trump derangement syndrome I hear of. I don't care about Trump...sorry I don't fit into your stereotype.

No, it's not. It's stating an opinion of the current president and nothing more. You're making assumptions.
You're making an assumption that Trump would somehow be better than Biden right now. We're all making assumptions here.

Again, Trump had it lucky by coasting through the first 3 years of his presidency with no major challenges happening. He was riding on the coat tails of the economic boom that started during Obama after the economy recovered from the Great Recession in 2011. Trump f-ed it up when 1 single major challenge (COVID) appeared. Biden is F-ing up the juggling of 3 major challenges (lingering COVID, Russian invasion, and inflation + possible recession).

As I mentioned earlier, Trump had many garbage policies and screw ups even when nothing particularly bad was happening, and then totally screwed it up when the first real challenge appeared. How could he handle 3 challenges at the same time better than Biden when he couldn't even handle 1 single challenge competently?

Trump lost the election to Biden specifically because he screwed up in handling even 1 single challenge (COVID).

You assume Trump would be better, but I say based on the evidence and history so far, Biden is bad but Trump would've been way worse.

Predictable....
No, I would say "appropriate". If Biden is doing that bad of a job, who better than you to correct it?. After all, since you've cataloged his every blunder and misstep, who better than you to rectify them?

The only reason you "don't like Trump", is so that you can segue all your far right wing bullsh\t into the discussion, is through the "backdoor", by denying your "savior". So, Judas denied Christ for a few coins, which replicates your actions here.

Shakespeare also had something to say in that regard, which is from Hamlet. To wit, "methinks the lady doth protest too much".

Again I have no interest in defending Trump.
Yes I think he would have done better than Biden hands down but I think most presidents would have done better.
You say Trump fed up with covid yet when he shut down travel to China Biden called him a racist. He also said he wouldn't take the "Trump vaccine". If I were a betting man I would bet that it would have been far worse under Biden as he clearly was not taking it very serious at first.
You can claim that Trumps policies are trash but policies are debatable. Different views on the same subjects...your view isn't fact. That said if you think his policies suck then ok. You can list as many as you like...no problem. Knock yourself out.
Also we already had a vaccination by the time Biden came in office. It was all an unknown when it first hit and Biden absolutely did not have to deal with it in the same way Trump did. So lets not act like covid was this massive challenge for Biden. And as far as gas prices, inflation, Afghanistan, the border issue and so ....well you can argue he was somewhat responsible for those...at least in part. I mean he went after oil and gas right off the bat just like he said he would. He also said on public tv that he wouldn't turn anyone away....I wonder why the massive surge once he came in office. Afghanistan was his mess and not Trumps. Most people don't have issues with pulling out but not the way he did it. Anyway we can go back and forth...got work to do. Take it easy.

That is funny. He is a lot of things but not my savior for damn sure lol.
I am a proud boomer conservative though....don't need Trump for that.

Of course most presidents would have done better than Biden. Most presidents would have done way better than Trump too. Trump and Biden are near the bottom of the barrel, and Biden beat Trump because Trump was the bottom.

As for stupid things said during COVID, let's not forget that Trump praised China and China's dictator's handling of COVID until it was obvious China lied to us and it was too late. Trump buried his head in the sand by ignoring the problem, then downplaying the problem...until it was too late. Then Trump switched to blaming China, blaming Democrats, blaming everyone else, etc. Trump not only harmed the fight against COVID by pretending it didn't exist or was overblown and doing nothing about it, but he also started threatening states that implemented state & local lockdowns.
So yeh, Biden said some stupid things about COVID, while Trump topped that stupidity by both saying stupid things AND implementing stupid policies.

And of course COVID wasn't a massive challenge for Biden. Just like the economy and Russia wasn't a challenge for Trump because Trump was riding on Obama's coat-tails of an economic boom from 2011, then printed a few trillion dollars more to prop up the stock market even more, and was acting like a useful fool for Putin to undermine NATO. So you have 1 challenge for Trump that Trump screwed up, and maybe 2-2.5 challenges (lingering COVID + Russia + inflation & recession) for Biden that he screwed up.

As for the border situation, Biden screwed up, and Trump was maybe marginally better....which is sad because Republicans usually have much better policies than Democrats on this. Trump didn't put funding into stuff that would actually work at stopping illegal immigration - such as cracking down on illegal immigrant employers (maybe because Trump hires them for cheap?) and creating a national E-verify system. Instead, Trump put money into useless but politically flashy stuff like increasing the size and height of the border wall (mostly in places that already had a wall). And he screwed that up by giving billions in corrupt no-bid contracts to companies that donated money to him even though they have no wall building experience and built shoddy construction walls that have to be repaired because they're falling apart.

As for Afghanistan, yes, Biden screwed up. But let's not forget Trump had the same policy on Afghanistan as Biden with a fixed timeline on withdrawal. The screwup in the Afghanistan withdrawal was the fixed timetable that emboldened the Taliban and caused the pullout to happen too fast. Trump likely would not have been much different in Afghanistan considering Biden decided to basically blindly follow Trump's plan that stuck closely to a firm timeline that Trump had negotiated with the Taliban during his term. So for Trump to have done any different, Trump would've had to tear up his own agreement that was negotiated under him.

As for Trump's policies being bad is debateable...sure - just like how Biden's policies being bad are debateable too, right? If we are to talk about the increase of illegal immigration under Biden, we can also talk about how the trade deficit increased every year after Trump took office, how the annual deficit increased under Trump, how the national debt increased to over 30 trillion under Trump, etc.

And we know that many Trump's economic policies are actually not much different than Biden's economic policies (low interest, massive stimulus, high deficit spending, QE, propping up stock markets, etc) so it is reasonable to say that Trump's results in the long term would have gotten us to the same path Biden gotten us today if they had the same/very similar policies.

And there is at least one of Trump's policy/action that we can confidentially say was uniquely bad and only attributable to him, it would be his election fraud conspiracy. This election conspiracy that was refuted as nonsense by his own cabinent and many of his own supporters in the executive & state governments, by his Republican allies in Congress, by conservative judges that Republicans appointed, etc...and then his subsequent inflammatory language led to a riot in the capital where people threatened to lynch the vice president. So far, Biden has not done anything at that level of insanity (yet).

And there was a vaccination years before expected. But yea he says stupid stuff...
Yes, and that was because research in Mrna vaccines was started years before the outbreak.
Not one minute of that research was done by Donald Trump, his heirs, or their assigns, per stirpes.

The only "research "the great pumpkin" has ever done, is how to gain notoriety, and screw people out of their money. He's a fuc*ing parasite, a delusional psychopath, and a pathological liar, without remorse or regret..

Are you really trying to credit him with "developing vaccines"?

No I'm not giving him all the credit but it was developed under his watch and super fast. So fast that our president and vp both called it the "Trump vaccine" and said they wouldn't take it. Now how much he is responsible for I can't say first hand.

Rising inflation and rising gas prices also started under tRUMP, but you people ignore that.

In May 2016 gasoline was $2.01 gallon and by May 2021 it was $2.94 a gallon.

Inflation in 2015 was 0.12% and by 2018 was 2.44%

And the scary thing about it is that there are people who still believe his BS WRT election fraud. Fortunately, the sane ones are holding those few accountable.

Of course they did, that's just stating the obvious. Trump because he perceived it as contributing to his greater glory..And Pence, because if he didn't, Trump would mock and discredit him in public.

Or perhaps, Pence saw the writing on the wall, where Trump would send an angry mob to the Capitol,to lynch him for certifying the results of a free and fair election.

"ohnooze", it's you again. Relax, I've got plenty of anti-venom left

lol...you people...I'm so offended!!!
Inflation was not to the level it is now, not even remotely close.
And gas is $5 on average right now....
Again I'm not saying Trump was great I'm saying Biden is bad. Everything has gotten worse and you can not blame everything on Trump because you know damn well that is BS. Again even CNN and MSNBC is turning on him..that is vey telling.

And I just got you to admit my point. Right now isnt 3 months from now, or 6 months, or a year. Its a 4 year body of work.

Thank you. You fell for what I could describe as hook, line, and sinker.

Of course you don'. That's because you either don't want to, or simply don't understand it. (Which, in your case, is to be expected)
lol....I don't care what you say about Trump and I don't know why you keep going to him like I am going to be offended. That is why I don't see your point. It's just more stupid Trump derangement syndrome ranting.

I have zero hang ups except an extremely strong appreciation for reality which you clearly do not share in at all. Your insults are completely nonsensical and stupid. You sir, are a fully dumb-as-a-door-knob kind of person.

No one should waste time debating someone this stupid. Stupid people like this are trolls. They will try to drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

You're a typical over emotional left leaning snowflake. Screaming and crying won't make you make sense.

By the way you have said nothing at all in this topic...not a single point other than believing I love trump.
In fact your very first post was "So many dumb *** right wing morons on here now"...then you cry about people insulting you. lol...typical...you guys are always the victim I guess.
