What's the first word that I think of when I think of Trump? traitor
What’s the first word that comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump?
A new poll from Quinnipiac University on recent Trump antics shows exactly what you’d expect. It contained a quick breakdown of his approval ratings — down to a whopping near-record negative 36 – 58 percent — and a round up of people’s feelings on honesty (61 – 33 percent say he’s not), his leadership skills (56 – 41 percent say he doesn’t have them) and whether or not he’s level-headed (66 – 29 percent say he can’t).
But honestly, it’s a question nestled in the middle of the poll, in a scroll-and-you'll-miss-it spot that takes the cake.
Question nine of the poll asks the question: “What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump?”
39 people said: “Idiot.”
And it just gets worse from there. The second most named word? “Incompetent.” In third place? “Liar.”
Some other crowd favorites down the list were “disaster,” “bigot,” “narcissist,” “racist” and my personal favorite, “buffoon.”
Of the 46 words listed (the only words listed were ones that were mentioned over 5 separate times), only four were clearly positive — “good” “great,” “smart” and “strong.” All of the others were negative, or didn’t lean one way or the other (“president” and “American” don’t really tell us how you feel do they?)
By a 54-38 margin, American voters want the Democratic Party to win control of the U.S. House of Representatives, the report says. The poll is reflective of the fact that voters tend to dislike the Democratic party less than the Republican party.
“There is no way to spin or sugarcoat these sagging numbers,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
“The erosion of white men, white voters without college degrees and independent voters, the declaration by voters that President Donald Trump’s first 100 days were mainly a failure and deepening concerns about Trump’s honesty, intelligence and level headedness are red flags that the administration simply can’t brush away,” he added.
The whole idea of god is absurd. If anything, '2001' shows that what some people call 'god' is simply an acceptable term for their ignorance. What they don't understand, they call 'god' . . . I chose to do Dr. Clarke's story as a film because it highlights a critical factor necessary for human evolution; that is, beyond our present condition. This film is a rejection of the notion that there is a god; isn't that obvious?
It is natural that people should differ most, and most violently, about the unknowable . . . There is all the room in the world for divergence of opinion about something that, so far as we can realistically perceive, does not exist.
The idea of an ordered and elegant universe is a lovely one. One worth clinging to. But you don't need religion to appreciate the ordered existence. It's not just an idea. It's reality. We're discovering the hidden orders of the universe every day. The inverse square law of gravitation is amazing. Fractals, the theory of relativity, the genome: these are magnificently beautiful constructs.
