Saudi science fair will never get old. I think that finishes his presidency at #1.

hamberders.jpg is an all time great as well.

Seriously though I agree with you. Besides the two cases being entirely different if they both happened in modern times, we discussed context of times and how things change. It is like people going nuts on twitter recently about a 1971 interview John Wayne gave Playboy.

We live in weird times where so many people don’t want to put things in context but the people most endanger are the ones who have now lived their entire lives online for all time. The Huffington Post just hired a social media editor whose Instagram was full on racist. There was no beating around the bush but it wasn’t even old stuff, it included Smollett comments. How does a “news” outlet hire a social media editor without looking at their social media.

Yet we have generations of people who will have an actual permanent record that will follow them forever, and many of those people are more than happy to make judgments on history with zero context. History is no excuse to being a racist or being insensitive but on an actual scale of infractions it makes a huge difference.

The Democrats aggressively pursued others who got caught up in sexual assault issues. So comparing how democrats and republicans respond to past transgressions with Northam as an example is completely out of bounds. I am younger than northam but old enough to know better at that time and I would have never been in such a position. But as an overall social transgression of the times it was pretty low on the scale. I am glad it has become an unacceptable action now. Some might argue the same with sexual assault but we are comparing a crime to horrible taste. Pretty much the same comparing Trump, numerous serious crimes of current times versus horrible taste 30 plus years ago. Liberals can not fly off the handle every time something from the past surfaces that is distasteful. It is a huge flaw.

Seriously, how is the fast food spread not top 5?

So many options, too...

There's smiling like the hamburgler...



There's a look of anguish at the salads, with a sideways glance at those hot, sexy Quarter Pounders...



And there's the great pride of posing in front of fast food in the White House while Abraham Lincoln looks on...



One of those is top five, period.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I'd go...

Honorable mentions: Note card for meeting with Parkland families "I hear you," North Korean salute, window wave in the back seat, tough guy face.

5. Saudi Science Fair
4. Big Boy in a Big Truck
3. Staring at the Sun
2. Hamburgers for Clemson
1. Coloring the flag incorrectly

The exciting thing is, we're only just past the halfway point of the first term... He's got so much time left to add to this list.

I like this list. There should also be an honorable mention for "DO NOT CONGRATULATE"

EDIT:Never mind that wasn't a picture that was a story. I was thinking of "I hear you". Easy to get these things mixed up

•the President’s debts and payments relating to efforts to influence the 2016 election;

Illegal

•the President’s compliance with financial disclosure requirements;

Illegal

•the President’s compliance with campaign finance laws;

Illegal

•the President’s compliance with tax laws;

Illegal

•the President’s business practices;

Illegal

•the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.;

Illegal

•the accuracy of the President’s public statements;

LOLIllegal

•potentially fraudulent or inappropriate practices by the Trump Foundation; and

Illegal

•public efforts by the President and his attorney to intimidate Mr. Cohen or others not to testify.
Illegal

Mr. Cohen has agreed to testify voluntarily and in public before the Oversight Committee. He will not be under subpoena.

On February 28, 2019, the day after Mr. Cohen testifies before the Oversight Committee, he will appear in closed session before the Intelligence Committee. The scope of the Oversight Committee’s open public hearing will not include questions relating to the Intelligence Committee’s investigation of efforts by Russia and other foreign entities to influence the U.S. political process during and since the 2016 U.S. election, and the counterintelligence threat arising from any links or coordination between U.S. persons and the Russian government, including any financial or other compromise or leverage foreign actors may possess over Donald Trump, his family, his business interests, or his associates. Among other lines of inquiry within its jurisdiction and the investigative parameters it announced on February 6, 2019, the Intelligence Committee’s closed interview also will examine in depth Mr. Cohen’s prior false statements to the Intelligence Committee.
This is easy.

That Trump Saudi poster is even more amazing now that we know how hard trump and people around trump were trying to (and are still trying to) sell everything SA would need to make nuclear weapons, with no conditions.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

cuse, I highly disapprove of the way you cropped Lincoln out of the best hamberders pic.



The Chapo guys commented that this pic had "powerful Kubrick energy". My mind went to Gilliam, personally.

Edited to sub in a higher-res version, I feel this is important.

Good call suzzer... It's at least an honorable mention. I'd be willing to go as high as #4, bumping the Big Boy in a Big Truck picture down one and the Saudi Science Fair to honorable mention.

I didn't crop it myself! Just snagged one off Google images with minimal searching. Yours is definitely better. Love the "powerful Kubrick energy" comment. Like, the sequel to Eyes Wide Shut... Mouth Wide Open.

This is truly a fierce competition. He's apparently done this numerous times based on a Google image search.

Don't think I'd ever seen this one before, def not top tier but worth seeing. That's Macron, if people don't recognise him. Look at how Trump is holding his hand.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I'm not as big a fan of the ones where it's like "it's funny that he did that" rather than the pic itself being amazing. Talking about like the flag coloring one, saluting NK general, eclipse, etc. I prefer the ones you can't convey with words. "It's a couple Saudi guys showing Trump a thing and he's pointing at it" does not come close to capturing that pic.

Think my list is:

1. Saudi show and tell
2. Showing Lincoln his hamberders
3. Big Boy truck

[gap]

4. Orb
5. Background wave (the one posted today). Possible I just like that so much because it's new, but I can't stop laughing every time I look at it.

I love the Mitt pic too, but I'm not sure it counts because I love it for Mitt, mostly.

As a bonus, just found this gem:

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I was thinking the same, but it should probably be a celebratory thread when his presidency ends, otherwise we'll just need to do it again.
