    It isn't so much Trump is an amateur, he is a doofus on top of being an amateur. Can one imagine Pres Obama curtsying to a dictator who imprisons and kills his family and opponents, whose nation killed an American student? Can you even imagine the outrage the same right wing Trump snowflakes who now sing his praises would aim at Obama? It says one thing clearly, right wing politics is without a moral base, it is rather a sad tribalism that excuses the evil of breaking up families in need because a loud mouthed draft dodger shouts hate and lies. Sad.

    The emasculated American got their president, a fool for snowflakes who know no better. The OP below is long and detailed and no snowflake will read it and so it goes....

    I have to think that the meme of Trump "stiffing" contractors is not valid. There are lawyers, mediation and courts along with local and state contractors boards that keep their industry straight.

    Actually neither. I just enjoy doing the work. I've renovated four houses over the years. Its like a hobby although as I'm getting older I'll have to start hiring stuff out.

    Perhaps. I just saw multiple examples and testimonials during the campaign that seemed credible. I have a friend in Jersey that's a contractor who never worked for Trump but he indicated that Trump has that reputation and that a lot of contractors wouldn't even consider bidding on his jobs.

    Anecdotal evidence is one thing. I'd be interested in real court transcripts and judgments against Trump, if any, for failure to pay contracts.
