Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.

Apparently he also said something along the lines of NASA being just a low-orbit logistics company. Yeah, because that's all they do.

Sounds like he wants to limit funding to NASA? Also.. he called it a 'company'... is it possible to entirely privatize NASA?

Good. I hope Trump does privatise NASA. Maybe we can finally see a fall in ticket prices to Mars.

Can't we just send Trump there? Not entirely human, but we've sent a Trumpanzee to Mars then.

Ah yes. Carve out the natural resources to all this pals like the Koch Brothers. Go full steam ahead with pipelines through native lands. Deregulate. Cut red tape for the FDA, ie; deregulation for Big Pharma so they can pump out unapproved drugs. And so on....


But... But... Trump is anti-Wall Street. Am I right?

Bad as the environmental and regulatory ideas are, I'm more concerned about the possible trade war.
Cripes, it seems like we really are looking to ourselves in as Russia did.

Will Donald Trump destroy America?

With Democrats defeated and Republicans scared to step out of line, Donald Trump’s control over the three branches of the US government means this horror show hasn’t yet begun

Always quick to get to the point, social media came up with an instant distillation of the global response to the improbable, unsettling election of Donald Trump as president of the United States: #RIPAmerica.

That hashtag declared that we had witnessed something more than a simple change of government. (Such a slogan would not have circulated had Mitt Romney beaten Barack Obama in 2012.) Instead, it implied that Trump had not merely taken over the running of the United States for four years, but that his presidency represented a much darker threat – that it would, in fact, destroy the country.

Of course, Twitter is prone to the hyperbolic and hysterical. But more sober commentators were raising a similar prospect, albeit in not quite such stark terms. David Remnick, the editor of the New Yorker, spoke for many when he wrote: “The election of Donald Trump to the presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the constitution, and a … sickening event in the history of the United States and liberal democracy … It is impossible to react to this moment with anything less than revulsion and profound anxiety.” For the millions who shared that sentiment, dawn on Wednesday felt like mourning in America.

What they fear is that Trump will make good on all the promises – and threats – he made during these last 18 months. What if he goes ahead and deports 11.3 million undocumented migrants? What if he really does ban all Muslims entering the country? What if he tries to use the powers of the state to go after media organisations that have criticised him – making life difficult for the businesses that own inquisitive newspapers such as the Washington Post, for example – as he has said he will? What if he overturns abortion rights, even imposing “some form of punishment” on a woman who terminates a pregnancy, as he once suggested? And what if he really does build that wall?

True that. The EPA stuff is already worrying enough, even moderate social reforms across other areas (marriage equality, access to abortion) will set America back decades.

I agree. His programme is so extreme even pulling it back to anything approaching normality will be a very brave act indeed.

That Trump will ban Muslims has disappeared from his website.

That's a great 100 day plan. Nobody does 100 day plans better than Donald J Trump, that I can tell you. And that wall. It will be a great wall. Nobody pays for a great wall better than the Mexicans. Oh, hang on. Why should the Mexicans pay for his fucking wall? What makes him think they'll pay for his fucking wall? Señor Trump, eres un pendejo. ¡Cogete un burro!
