Re: Odds of President Trump making it the full 4 years.

I think Trump will make it all four years, and will easily get re-elected. After a few more years, the liberal media will get tired of talking about Russia, Russia, Russia, and will finally move on to something else. It's sad when you watch the news and all they talk about is Russia. They don't see...

Well that sucks for him. Looking up recovery time it can be 6-8 weeks to 3-4 months. The 76ers first rounder last year missed his whole first season because of similar break.

Also what is with the Riverdale, GA native -- I thought his hometown was listed as Omaha.
