Trump's salt and pepper shakers tower over everyone else's. Obama, Bush, and Clinton used the same size shakers as their guests.

Trump has ruined the minds of the MSM. Journalism is dead, killed by the TDS virus----- bf


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



  • When he's having working lunches or dinners at the White House, President Donald Trump often wields salt and pepper shakers almost twice the size of everyone else's.



  • This could be another one of his power moves, alongside his   fierce handshakes   and   bulky suits .



  • Photos show Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama using the same size shakers as their White House guests, while Trump's usually tower over others.


President Donald Trump displays his power with firm handshakes,   a second scoop of ice cream , and towering salt and pepper shakers.

Mark Knoller, CBS News' White House correspondent, pointed out how much bigger Trump's shakers were   in a tweet on Thursday .

Insider combed the photo archives and found that Trump more often than not gets much larger salt and pepper shakers than other foreign leaders or American politicians when dining at the White House. And we couldn't find instances of Trump's most recent predecessors using larger shakers than those of their guests.

The large shakers might just be because he enjoys   salty foods   like KFC chicken, Big Macs, and bacon and eggs. But it could also be another power move, alongside his   fierce handshakes   and   bulky suits .

These photos show how much bigger Trump's White House salt and pepper shakers usually are than everyone else's, and how they compare to those of Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

To set the scene, we'll start with Clinton. It appears he and Vice President Al Gore ate lunch with typical, nondescript salt and pepper shakers.

Condiment equality continued with Bush. In 2005, he seasoned his food with the same size salt and pepper shakers as Condoleezza Rice, his secretary of state.

This is your MSM, obsessed with nonsense. Trump ruined their minds with sadness over the 2016 election and journalism can no longer be found among their ranks.

We know what Woodward thinks about Trump...

" Woodward called Trump's dealings with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, "mind boggling and clearly a misuse of presidential power,"

"(Trump) doesn't like the impeachment inquiry. He doesn't like them looking, trying to get his taxes, trying to call all the people who work for him, which he is resisting."

"And so, we're in a fight. And it, quite likely, next year is just going to be a bloody year because the country is divided."

https://www.wgbh.org/news/local-news/2019/11/18/journalist-bob-woodward-on-how-watergate-compares-to-trump-impeachment-inquiry

Bob Woodward recalls, “an almost Shakespearean moment”. He and a Washington Post colleague were  interviewing Donald Trump  in March 2016. They asked how Trump defines power. The then presidential candidate replied: “Real power is – I don’t even want to use the word – fear .”

Bob Woodward is currently an associate editor of The Washington Post, so he is still one of today's journalists. The question you asked was a poor one. My comment pointed out that not only does Woodward not think the current journalism and reporting of Trump is wrong or deficient in any way, he is one of those journalists who sees Trump for the sorry sack of stupid he is.

You seem to be just hanging around waiting to reply to anyone on anything. I'm not the one "wasting your time" or forcing you to write a reply.

You seem to spend most of your time here trying to defend dishonest Donald which, in my opinion, is the ultimate waste of time and effort. Those spending their time defending a man accused of sexual assault by more than two dozen women, who was caught paying hundreds of thousands to his whores to keep their mouths shut during the campaign, said on tape that he doesn't "even wait" for consent and just starts kissing women he finds attractive and grabs them by their genitals, are the ones truly wasting their time. Asking what Woodward and Bernstein might think of our current journalists who just report dishonest Donald's words and are aghast at his conduct is just more sorry deflection and distraction from the reality you and every other conservative already knows, that Donald is without a doubt one of the worst human beings on the planet. Conservatives just can't admit it because then they'd have to admit they were wrong, and there's simply no chance of that happening, they are far too insecure and small minded to accept any sort of fault for electing the worst President in US history.

Just a reminder incase you've already forgotten, I'm not forcing you to reply or spend any time here at all, so don't bother trying to project your insecurities and then claim I forced you to spend time doing so.

With the advent of social media, which on widespread level has been extremely popular for about 10 or 12 years, those on the political right came to discover that truth or accuracy no longer mattered. What matters is confusing people, including voters, bamboozling them and the rest of the public, photoshopping and distorting images so as to create "fake news".  We now know that public opinion can be manipulated by lying and falsifying images.  Lying is the basis for Trump's existence as a successful politician.  

I have really come to the conclusion that our society is headed for a widespread all consuming social disaster.  Truth and accuracy are not needed, only the ability to misinform and fool. 

Here on Newstalkers we see it every day.  There are 4 or 5 conservatives here who couldnt debate their way out of a paper bag.  But they dont care about that, all they care about is that they can present "alternative facts", because today there is a large audience for alternative facts and alternative facts put Trump in the White House.

The United States of America is in a lot of trouble.  A lot.

Wrong. People who respect the office and the votes of the citizenry of the US are the true patriots. People who want him out do nothing but wish as there is nothing they can do about it. How some live with Mr. Trump so deeply entrenched in their heads, for free, and continue to dis him is a mystery. Do I agree with all that he says? Hell no. Only a fool or a butt hurt democrat listens to, reads, and gets their panties in a wad about words that are spewed in the heat of the moment. I, for one, can dismiss them as bluster. That people of your belief and ideology think you can have any influence are truly barking up the wrong tree. The rest of us just marvel at the control he has over your everyday lives.

Why would it be difficult to state facts with a straight face?

"He is a KNOWN liar, crook, bigot, and moron"

Over 13,000 confirmed lies since taking office, most Republicans don't even bother to refute, they just defend him by saying all politicians lie. Besides his refusal to rent apartments to blacks in the 1970's, his own words calling Mexicans rapists, his disrespect for Democrats of color calling their cities "rat infested", called African ally nations 'shitholes', said of the Native Americans he met who were opening a casino "They don’t look like Indians to me".

If that wasn't enough a state judge ordered President Trump to pay $2 million in damages to nonprofit groups on Thursday after the president admitted misusing money raised by the Donald J. Trump Foundation to promote his presidential bid, pay off business debts and purchase a portrait of himself for one of his hotels proving he is also very definitely a "crook".

And what does Trumps own staff think of him behind his back? They call him an "idiot", "dope" and "moron", so again, John nailed it.

How you can imagine there was something funny about Johns factual comment is the real puzzler. Perhaps someone living in an alternate universe with alternate facts might view this reality as laughable.

Because another Republican nominee doesn't have the balls and bombastic personality that Mr. Trump does and would cave. And I think you know that.

And if you want to compare notes, another nominee had the same "vision" that Mr. Obama did. Didn't work out too well did it.

Whats more troubling I guess is that you are happy to have an asshole in the oval office. 

Lies thousands of times. 

Cheated middle class people out of their life savings. 

Cheated his casino investors by manipulating his bankruptcies.

Perpetrated a preposterous racist conspiracy theory known as birtherism. 

Says ignorant , false and bizarre things on a daily basis. 

Accused of sexually assaulting more than a dozen women. 

Subjugated the honor of the United States to a foreign foe by acting submissive in front of Vladimir Putin.

Asked foreign governments to investigate his US political opponents.

Make that "Minority" if you want to be truthful.

Trumps current overall disapproval rating is at 54% which would be a solid majority. So, not sure why you refute something so blatantly obvious, but facts are facts.

Also note that he currently has a 90% approval rating among Republicans and a 4% approval among Democrats. That means 10% of Republicans along with the 96% of Democrats do not approve of this President.

If total voters is roughly what it was in 2016 at 137 million, and according to gallup 30% of voters are registered Republican, 31% registered Democrat and 8% registered independent (the other 31% 3rd party or unregistered) then of 137 million that's 41.1 million Republicans and 42.5 million Democrats. And 90% of 41.1 million is 37 million plus the 1.7 million Democrat defectors totaling 38.7 million Americans vs the 40.8 million Democrats (96% of Democrats) plus 4.1 million totaling 44.9 million Americans. That's 6.2 million more Americans disapprove of this President and the job he's done so far.

And's that's just among registered Republicans and Democrats. His approval rating among Independents is even worse at a dismal 38% which means 62% of the 11 million independents (6.8 million) agree with the other 44.9 million in their disapproval of Donald Trump. That's nearly 52 million Americans who disapprove of dishonest Donald versus the 42 million who continue to support him. That confirms the more than 10 million more Americans who voted for Democrats in the 2018 elections giving the House to Democrats so they could put a check on this out of control moron. I'm sure those 42 million are dug in, they've set their heels and they will not be moved no matter what Trump does or how exposed and corrupt he is. But thankfully, the majority see him for what he is and know that we can't risk another 4 years of this preventable insanity.

I do believe 2020 will be the largest voter turnout by a large margin, perhaps as many as 10 million more than the 2016 election, so we'll see how those outside the partisan trenches will end up voting, they will be the ones who truly determine the outcome.

You keep banking on those polls and approval or disapproval ratings!

"Polls of the November 2016 presidential election were about as accurate as polls of presidential elections have been on average since 1972."

"The (right wing) media narrative that polling accuracy has taken a nosedive is mostly bullshit, in other words. Polls were never as good as the media assumed they were before 2016 — and they aren’t nearly as bad as the media seems to assume they are now. In reality, not that much has changed."

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-polls-are-all-right/

"National polls only measure the popular vote. Clinton did, in fact, win the national popular vote by 2.1 points. The average of the 13 final national polls had Clinton ahead by 3.1 points, which was only a point off the actual result. Ironically, all 12 polls that had Clinton ahead turned out to be closer to the final outcome than the poll that had Trump ahead. While that may seem crazy — since Trump, not Clinton, is headed to the White House — it's true. The poll that put Trump ahead (by 2 points) was off by 4.1 points, while polls that gave Clinton the lead were off anywhere from only one-tenth of a point to less than 4 points."

"National polling did much better in 2016 than in 2012, when the average of the final polls in the contest between President Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney was off by more than 3 points."

"What gave Trump his electoral victory was not his national voter strength — which he lost by nearly 3 million votes — but his strength in eight swing states, which he won by a little over 1 million votes. Swing state presidential polls: In Florida, the largest of the swing states, the average of the final three polls had Trump ahead by three-tenths of a point. He won the state by 1.2 points. Ohio's last poll gave Trump a 7-point lead, and he carried it by 8.1 points. The average of the three final polls in Pennsylvania had Clinton leading by a single point and the last poll taken had Trump ahead by a point. He won the state by seven-tenths of a point."

https://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/campaign/315145-one-last-look-2016-polls-actually-got-a-lot-right

" D onald Trump owes his victory in the Electoral College to three states he won by the smallest number of votes: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan. So it's fair to say that the 2016 presidential election was decided by about 77,000 votes out of than 136 million ballots cast ."

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/weekly-standard/the-election-came-down-to-77-744-votes-in-pennsylvania-wisconsin-and-michigan-updated

I'm not "banking" on anything, I know my State will give all their electoral college votes to whoever is the Democrat nominee because I live in California where the vast majority recognize what a complete waste of space dishonest Donald is and are embarrassed by his ineptitude and crass behavior unbecoming of the President as well as his obvious abuse of power. And it's not the "poll's" that I'm looking at from 2018 to see which way the wind is blowing nationwide, it's the 10 million more Americans casting actual votes for Democrats than Republicans. Trumps base hasn't moved, but the rest of America, the majority, see this President for what he is, a wannabe small time gold painted mob boss with a room temperature IQ and a penchant for misogyny and sexual assault. How some Republicans keep covering for such a scum bag is beyond me, but I know it will catch up to them whether they think it will or not. They will soon be faced with the demon of their own creation just like Democrats have had to battle the specter of Bill Clinton for the last 20 years. But it's too late now for Republicans to reverse course, they can only double down on stupid as dirty Donald has left them no choice.

Depends on the size of the event.  And many, many of S&P shakers have disappeared from the WH over the years especially the Lenox ones

shown in the Bush/Cheney and Obama/Biden pictures.

In fairness to Trump, he seems to have the standard size glass S&P shakers which are about $10 a set.

Everyone else has caterer style shakers which are about $1 apiece or less in bulk, again, probably because the WH knows how many

disappear as souvenirs at every WH event. 

Kudos to whoever thought of it and saved a few of our tax $$.

Although the facts  (Trump demands and uses larger salt and pepper shakers than everyone else at the table) appear to be correct, and are yet another small proof of his psychological malfunctions,  I dont think newspapers or web sites, should bother with it any more. 

Everyone who cares already knows he is a malignant narcissist who is not above the most petty displays of self-absorption, and there are already books written with this evidence. Most of us saw him shove the president of a small country out of the way so Trump could get to the front of line to pose for a photograph at a NATO meeting.  And there are a thousand other things.  But citing them in news stories at this point only gives the bamboozlers and gaslighters more opportunities.
