I've tended to refer to him (but not exclusively) as President Very Stable Genius. I will presume you have no objection to this, as it incorporates a phrase Trump has used to refer to himself.

Can you link to a post in which you expressed the same sentiments when Obama was president?

Just curious. Did you intend for that to be ŕpropos of anything in particular?

Oh, I forgot I called him tweety bird for about a week, but there was not enough venom in that one.

I like the anagram, Lord Dampnut. One of my favorite web-comic artists calls him Screamy Orange Grandpa.

Legally speaking, you are correct.

Realistically speaking, fuck that, fuck trump, fuck every piece of shit that voted for him, and fuck anyone who carries water for him. And that includes you.

Odd that some have such a hard time grasping such basic facts. So, I'll break this down for the hard of thinking folk:

How to determine if Donald J. Trump is your President — a guide for the logic challenged

Question 1) Are you a citizen of the United States of America?
___ Yes.. Congratulations, Donald J Trump is your President!

___ No. Sorry, Donald J. Trump is not your President.
Questions 2 - ∞) See Question 1

See, easy peasy.

I would say that normally any person who holds the office of President of the United States should be entitled to some respect just because of that regardless of their individual flaws. For example, I strongly disagreed with many of the things that George W. Bush did but I would show him some basic respect because he was the President.

But Donald Trump is different. He has openly and continuously refused to follow the standards of decency that a President should follow. So if Trump refuses to respect his own Presidency, why should I respect it? He deserves to receive the same lack of respect that he gives.

It seems like a few years ago there were a few more steps around demanding to see the president's birth certificate and religion, or whether he just seems like a dangone socialist. Are we not doing that anymore?

Way to evade the question.

Easy way to make millions of dollars: make a bet to pay one million dollars to anyone uttering the 'Trump is My President and he's Your President Too' claim, if they can prove that they--even once!--publicly said or wrote "Obama is my president" during Obama's time in office.

And, of course, if they did not, then they owe you one million dollars.

Easy peasy!

Shit, my favorite one yet!
If I may critique... Lose the capital p, and just as the orange ass refers to actual judges, call him "My so called president".
Beautiful!

I'm sure that someone said that Obama was not their president during his tenure. Several someones even. But it never rose to the level of being a mating call that Trump is not my president has been propelled to.

Awww. Did you not get a trophy? I didn't try to keep track of all the failures starting threads over some trivial perceived slight by the Commander in Chief so I really don't remember.

Have your mommy drop by to pick one up for you sometime. She can present it to you for washing behind your ears or something.

I guess I was being too literal with the not my president statement. I can see how birtherism was an indictment of his eligibility to hold the office and therefor "not my president". Point conceded. I did block a few people from my fb feed who just wouldn't shut up with that nonsense.

"A citizen". "... if you are a citizen of the United States." The missing indefinite article is a classic artifact of direct translation from the Russian.

"Belittled myself to" is not English. I assume it's more inept translation from the Russian. You're either a Russian troll or an illiterate right-wing moron, and possibly both.
