I want to keep track of how many predictions Nostradamus over here gets right and how many he gets wrong.  My guess is the results will not be particularly flattering.  Perhaps if I get really bored one day, I'll do just that.
I'll help you out on that one.  He has gotten none of them right so far. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

He isn't a clown though, he is the president of the United States. So no, he is not competent. If his job was to amuse... then by all means, I would agree.

As for the rest, if you get your jollies over seeing discord and think it's entertaining... well, all that really reflects is the sadness of your character. Discord by it's very nature is not entertaining, otherwise it would not be discord.

I actually ran into a guy this morning who thinks Trump is "a great businessman." I mentioned his 6 bankruptcies, and how the western banks would no longer loan him any more money so that he had to go to the Russians for his loans, but then I woosed out and just left. I can't deal with idiots in meat-space, I get too worked up.

right, he got the most powerful position in the land as a job, but he's not competent.

And he is pretty amusing, like seeing how royalists freaked out at how he walked in front of the queen, that was funny.

So you don't think he's a clown then? And you don't think he creates discord?

maybe you just didn't realize it was a word used before the discord app was created, here, lemme fill you in on its original meaning.

Why do you have to talk to me like that?

I'm going to give you a chance to think about that statement, realise how dumb it was and retract it while I go work on some sub-basses and drum loops.

well he probably doesn't need to worry about failed businesses anymore anyway, he's set for life as an ex-president.

Does that drum as bass help pay the bills? I suppose it could do. Just not as much as being president of the united states.

Trump was competent enough to achieve his goals as president, something your still regretting he achieved today.

These were all people who reached the top of their respective fields but still filled the spectrum of incompetent, from slightly incompetent to, "Holy shit, how can you actually run a company or country that poorly?"

Being at the top does not make one competent in their field. Trump being president does not make him a competent president.

From this side of the pond, I would call him "spooky."

The Chinese, our masters, are very impressed with Trump.  Not spooky, just high strategy and tactical genius.  But only if you read Sun Tzu.

Sorry Shiranu ... nobody here is probably competent at anything (other than Internet shit posting).  Go to Comedy Central and do your stuff.  Good luck (really).  Since you are so more competent than anyone else in history, in business, entertainment, politics etc.  Yes, there have been some very competent, or lucky, businesspeople.  They trade politicians like baseball cards.

I don't think anyone will find Trump "delightful" after he's destroyed America's economy. That's what "America first" really means - first America's economy goes down the tubes, and then it will be Europe's turn.

So you depend on agricultural subsidies?  That is the main sector hurting from the trade war.  I don't like the trade war, but it is better than a shooting war.

Yes, so desperate they have to spread lies, at great expense, on the internet about how all the Republicans are leaving their own party...

Oh, wait.

Doesn't matter, the Millennials will vote for Pikachu anyway ;-)
