Check reddit out and yahoo comments. The internet is where cowards go to say things they are too scared to say in public.

My Jewish friends are very important to me. They are very intelligent and there are many folks from that ethnicity that are among my friends. Bagels are really good, especially with the lox, cream chese with onions and capers. So I will be sure not to talk bad about them and their folks on this board.

Do you think you could manage that?

Huh what kind of backwards thinking. So there aren't rich trashy people? You are thinking one extreme to the next. You can have class without being a billionaire and you can have class struggling to pay bills.

Trump supporters are in deep denial and created their own reality. Its honestly, hilarious.

We may end up at war before his first year ends in office. We have an oil tycoon as secretary of state. You know what looking for oil, I mean weapons of mass destruction got us.

But, but Hilary emails. When Trump has more conflict of interest than any president in history. Still hasn't seen this man tax returns, I'm sure he owes money to many foreign banks.

Twitter fingers, critiquing Boeing and other companies that led to stock drop offs. Lets not forget attacking the union leader of the Carrier workers for calling out his bull**** deal.

He has all the signs of a wannabe dictator. It is really embarrassing to have to explain to people oversees what happened to America.

Well we got wars under Bush and Obama.

Not that I am looking for war, but Hillary is no candidate of peace.

At a certain point it really is time to just move on.

As for his tax returns, big deal. I honestly don't care.

There's nothing to explain to people overseas. If they are not US citizens they have no say.

I doubt very many are, except people who were extremely rich to begin with.
Under 25 people have just graduated from college. You are aware that it does take time to establish one's self in a career, aren't you?

Success is also vaguely and ill defined . But yes there are people who have degrees where their parents didn't, and who have professional jobs where their parents didn't. Even under 25.

Compared to many other children of wealthy parents, they've conducted themselves well appear to be mature. All three of the older children are in (seemingly) successful marriages, and two of them have families they're raising. There aren't many reports of drug/gambling/alcohol problems or excessive partying.

What makes you think they're not hardworking? Just b/c they joined the family business doesn't mean they're not hardworking or focused.
All of his adult kids also have bachelor's degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, so they have good educations. Clearly they could have just live off their dad's money, but they did not. Tiffany Trump is applying to law schools.

He did a good job in raising them.

Trump himself is a lot more successful than his father.

Trump has really gotten to you it seems.
His post was within the terms of service of this website and I see no grounds for it to be deleted.

Oh, and it was okay for you to disparage the "underclass" in Harlem, but when someone says something you don't like the post should be deleted? Double standard anyone? It looks like the underclass in Harlem is the least of your worries compared to what Trump will do to government funding?

Under Bush, we went to war for no reason. It was a spillover effect due to the instability of the middle east because of the overthrown of Saddam into Obama administration.

People are moving on, however you can't ignore the facts. He is our soon to be President and he should answer for every concerning question 65 million voters who voted against him have. However, he unfortunately thinks as well as his supporters, that millions of those votes against him were from illegals. Its really a huge stench of narcism and denial of facts that don't fit his view of himself.

His business conflicts are very important to anyone with a brain.

His tax returns are important to anyone with a brain.

We need to know who our President financially owes, blackmail and deals can and will happen.

For example the sanctions on Russia we currently have, IF Trump and his Putin friendly Secretary of state (CEO of EXXOX) wants to lift those. Thats a red flag, given Exxon has a cozy relationship with Russia.

Ah, interesting how the scare tactic of the Russians no longer plays out politically. I would fully support lifting the sanctions on Russia. It's much better to deal with Putin and the Russians than it is those Islamic terrorists, and when Arab socialist dictators controlled Iraq, Syria, Libya they did not allow religious fundamentalists to run wild and cook up terrorist attacks. For that matter the same could be said of the American supported dictators in Egypt. Both Bush and Clinton's regime changed completely destabilized the middle east. Oh and because US President's listened to the CIA, Bin Laden's outfit got built up in order to target the Russian occupied Afghanistan. We see how well that worked out.

I would say that since Trump is accused of everything in the media include rape, they have nothing to blackmail him for. The only thing he has not YET been accused of is outright murder.

So his tax returns are not important, and constitutionally his business conflicts are not important since anyone over the age of 37 who is born in the US can run for PRESIDENT and is qualified.
