Nice hat.

Not only is this true but the entire field or presidential hopefuls, on both sides, have made President Obama not only seem like a great President by comparison, but have likely ensured that he immediately rises to the top of the greatest American Presidents in history once he leaves office.


  1. For the love of Man, Gryph, tone down the adulation! (This coming from a shared assessment of 44th President's quality--top echelon he's been)

      Obama will never be praised enough, IMO. I adore him and the amazing First Lady and the First Family.

    Goodness. The face of America! Donald J Trump. Oh gag, burp, guzzle, burp. yuck.

  3. Leland2:58 AM

    Sorry, Gryphen, but the ONLY thing that will make President Obama great to Trump's followers is his complete removal from office and eradication from history! Their hatred is too ingrained and unthinking.

      Republicans Stunned After Trump Reveals That His Presidential Campaign Is Broke
      Now how can his campaign be broke with all the FREE media coverage?

    3. Anonymous11:47 AM

      7:48 -
      Because Trump can't help himself when it comes to inflating amounts of money. What he claimed he's worth is far above most estimates by financial experts.

      He claimed that he raised 6 million dollars for veterans but then his campaign walked that back to a total of 4.5 million. News organizations have been able to track only 3 million going to the charities so far. Yet, even yesterday, he claimed to have raised almost 6 million.

      He has a compulsion to exaggerate any time money is involved and no doubt did that regarding his campaign funds. Now that it's time to actually pay the bills, the truth about his solvency, or lack thereof, comes out.

    I think that President Obama does not need any help from Donald Trump with regard to high ratings.

    1. Anonymous7:51 AM

      I agree, it is an insult to Pres. Obama suggesting his approval ratings are due to Dummkopf Trump.

      I believe even George W. ratings would be higher.

    2. Anonymous11:30 AM

      Agree, 7:51 and Beaglemom. Obama has been a great President, either on his own or in comparison to other. Our country has been very fortunate to have had him for 8 years - Duh, kind of an understatement. ;-)

      Now that is a brand that just might take off.

      Michael Moore loves to tell the story of how scared of him Donald Trump was.

      I think Bernie should run with this since Trump is the one that challenged him to a debate and then back off TWICE.

      Bernie can always refer to him as Chicken Donald (although he won't because Bernie is not that kinda guy.)

      Elizabeth Warren needs to brand Donnie too. While she isn't that kind of person either, sometimes you have to lower yourself to the level of those you are trying to communicate with, that being the Trump voters and undecideds.

      While this sort of negative campaigning and attack labeling isn't normally the way the Democrats work, for this election it is imperative that that is exactly what they do.

      The only way to fight fire is with fire and the only way to defeat Trump is to use the exact same techniques against him.

      Scott Adams nailed it on Bill Maher. He clearly analyzed what Trump is doing. Bernie clearly stated (and Adams and Maher agree) that Hillary doesn't have a clear way to counter Trump's tactics. And when asked Bernie admitted he didn't have a way either. It's because both are too polite. You can't fight Trump with courtesy. The only way is to get down and dirty in the same way.

      Here's to CHICKEN DONALD.

      I'm sure we can come up with more.

    President Barack H Obama will go down in history as one of the greatest (if not the greatest) presidents this country has ever had.
    I am happy I was part of making it happen, in 2008 and 2012.

      You can find plenty of gifs on Huffington Post and Yahoo.

      They are hilarious.

      At last we have a negative branding of Trump that will stick.

      Long live Chicken Trump and Donald Cluck. Use them at every opportunity. They will work much better than Make Donald Drumpf Again.

    Judge bashed by Trump orders release of company records

    A federal judge has ordered the release of internal Trump University documents in an ongoing lawsuit against the company, including “playbooks” that advised sales personnel how to market high-priced courses on getting rich through real estate.

    The Friday ruling, in which Judge Gonzalo Curiel cited heightened public interest in presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, was issued in response to a request by The Washington Post. The ruling was a setback for Trump, whose attorneys argued that the documents contained trade secrets.

      So now scamming people out of their money is considered a "trade secret".

      I'm surprised Chicken Trump was as restrained as he was. I was expecting him to call the judge a wetback or imply he should be shipped back to Mexico.

      I hope this trial makes big news and hit the fan around September/October just in time for the run up to the elections.

    Rubio Personally Apologized To Trump For Implying He Had A Small Penis

    1. Anonymous7:48 AM

      In what was either an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper or a very public suicide note, Marco Rubio — broken, sad, and tired — suddenly had a lot of good things to say about Donald Trump, the man he once called a lunatic incapable of being president. Rubio, like Chris Christie and Ben Carson before him, has done a complete 180 degree turn on the issue of Trump — which isn’t as hard as it sounds if your spine is made of jelly.

      ...However the most egregious demonstration of just how feckless Rubio has become came when the conversation turned towards Hillary Clinton. When Tapper asked Rubio what he thought about Trump using outrageous lies like “the Clintons killed a man in the 1990s” and “Bill Clinton is a serial rapist,” the former presidential candidate said he didn’t necessarily agree with the tactic, but Trump should keep doing it because it helps him get votes.

      “I don’t think he should change if he’s been successful,” Rubio said when asked about Trump dredging up scandals of the 1990s to attack Hillary Clinton, which Rubio said he himself wouldn’t do. “I may not like that direction, but at this point, he won and this is the direction that he won on.”

    2. Anonymous11:02 AM

      And there have you your Republican values.

      Yeah, it's a lie, but he should keep doing it because it gets votes.

      And that is why Republicans win.

      Democrats needs to start being less polite. If they're lying, call them out on it. Don't mince words.

      In this instance the Bernie Supporters have it exactly right.

      Chicken Trump.

      Donald Cluck.

      They are hammering him on it. They have the exact right idea.

    NBC Host To Sanders: Your Take On Superdelegates Is A Bit 'Hypocritical'

    ...The comment from the "Meet the Press" host came after Sanders said that he thought there were "three paths to victory" for him to clinch the nomination.

    Sanders said he wanted to go into the Democratic National Convention this summer with more pledged delegates than Clinton. He acknowledged that it would be an "uphill fight" to do so.

    Sanders also said his campaign would talk to the superdelegates in states where he had won "landslide victories" and tell them to, "Do what the people in your state want. They voted for Bernie Sanders, you as the superdelegates should follow their wishes."

    The Vermont senator went on to say that he would also talk with the superdelegates who sided with Clinton before the primary votes were cast.

    "We're going to make the case for the superdelegates, "Your job is to make sure that Trump is defeated, that Bernie Sanders, in fact, for a variety of reasons, not just polling, is the strongest candidate.'"

    Todd told Sanders he was contradicting himself.

    "You're saying you want them to respect the vote in their state, then at the same time, you say, 'But oh, by the way, for those of you that are a superdelegate in a state that Clinton won, why don't you think about the general election?' It's a little bit hypocritical to be on both sides of those issues," Todd said.

    It should come as a shock to no one that Trump's been saying one thing to his supporters on the campaign trail, while telling the Zombie-Eyed Granny-Starver from Wisconsin something else in private.

    Did anyone watch Bill Maher?

    It's pretty pitiful when a cartoonist has more insight as to the problems and weaknesses of the current campaign than those in it.

    He clearly pointed out exactly what the danger of Trump's behavior and campaigning is. When it comes to branding, Trump far outperforms Hillary. And branding will be the most powerful tool in this election.

    That, and the inability to pin Trump down on anything because he simply hasn't provided any target; he lies, he flip flops, he has no policies or viewpoints.

    I think Scott Adams pretty much nailed it.

    And we should all be afraid.
