Mr. ATMs are bad and hurting all 57 states was just as dumb. He just said it with his nose higher in the air.

Yes, but the Media puffed him up to keep him looking sharp, even though he really is as dumb as a box of rocks.  Today we have the same Media making every effort to make a President look stupid.   :shrug:

Thank you for proving your ignorance of modern electronics. Muslim?

I hope you are the first doufous to be a passenger in "pilotless plane" bubba.

Except even with a few of the recent tragedies (which cause hasn't been identified so we have no clue if it is 'complexity'), statistics continue to show that air travel and aircraft are getting safer and less dangerous. That technology he complains about, is what is making it safer...

..but don't let that get in the way of getting people scared and fired up over something that has virtually zero probability of impacting them.

The lengths the pro-Orange brigade will take to defend this clown is getting more innovative every day.  Almost entertainment by itself.

That’s true, but he had sense enough to walk away from it and not grab the nearest Twitter shovel to keep digging the hole.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Hello! What part is it of him NOT being a professional politician is it that you goobers have such a hard time understanding? He grew up in and lived in a world his whole life where you either stand up for yourself against all charges or nobody will do business with you. Somebody slams him,he slams them back.

By the end of thi dfay.  Sen. Cruz called for the planes to be grounded.

Trump had the right subject, upon which the day's headlines were based. And everybody's fave guy is on the same wavelength.

Meanwhile mindless jabber among #nevertrumps occupies this forum.

Often wrong, usually wrong, too busy running at the mouths, to realize it.

Some years ago The Mythbusters did an episode on landing jet airliners.  First, without any previous flying experience for any of them, both Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, using a simulator,  successfully landed a jet airliner thanks to the plane's advanced computer guidance system.
Next, they tried to land one without the computer guidance system. They both crashed.
Statistics prove that traveling by commercial airliners is far safer than it was even twenty years ago.
Worldwide, and especially in the U.S., deaths from airliner crashes have become extremely rare.
However, in the U.S. alone about 400-500 people die annually in small plane crashes. So if your friend the doctor asks if you want to go on a trip with him the pilot in his small plane, maybe you should think twice about it.  Great professionals don't necessarily make great airplane pilots.
The same phenomenon was observed after Harley-Davidson was listed on the NYSE. Suddenly there was a whole crop of people with shiny and designer leathers riding full dress motorcycles they couldn't turn around in the Walmart parking lot.

Just because you can write the check, doesn't mean you know how to drive it.

An instinctive feel for the vehicle is important, knowledge of how it works goes with that, and helps overcome the things which are counterintuitive that will get you killed.  The farther we step away from that ability to 'fly by the seat of our pants', in both technology and the human factor, the less capable we become.

Yeah, but nevers have so little left they can hang onto. Mueller’s witch hunt is a bust, Nadler’s inquisition is a joke and Adam the “Ant” Schiff will soon be committed to Bellevue for his own safety.

NeverTrumpers need their drive-by insults.

No it's not @Cyber Liberty  In case you don't know this, it's insulting to the dwindling number of Trump supporters you have left on the forum.  Why are you piling on?

I think that's really funny @Meshuge Mikey! Pay no attention to the  whiners that can't stand any dissent of Trump no matter how funny, it's almost like being stuck in room with a bunch of Obama-ites.

Well said. Having flown Boeing flight simulators myself  I agree. Trump is wrong, they have not become too complex to fly. Quite the opposite. And why like you said, plan crashes have become a very rare thing.
