What's treason is what Barack Obama is doing. Trump is right (if in fact he said that, but seeing as how your link is to Media Matters, you can be sure Trump has been misquoted, or his words twisted.)

And here's yours from the WSJ:
"Chart watchers see more gloom ahead.

Major stock indexes have suffered their worst two-day slide of the year, falling more than 3% since Election Day, as concerns are quickly mounting about the looming fiscal fight over tax increases and spending cuts."
Companies started letting people go to get below the magic "50",cut hours,closing locations etc in an effort to reduce the impact of what's sure to come as they're all in the crosshairs of the IRS.

Cheer all you want and keep fiddling while Rome burns or more present day while Greece fills with tear gas.

I've been to many countries and have never seen as much whining and lack of confidence in ones country as the Rightwing Americans are exhibiting over this election.
OOOH we have problems, lets do all we can to compound the problems,lets all hate our leader and hope our country goes down the crapper.. At this point your leader has been chosen for the next 4 years ,now you have two choices you can help your country grow and thrive and overcome its problems or you can b itch and whine for 4 more years and help destroy it..your choice.
Is this attitude the answer? =

This country will never "come together". We are permanently divided between the brain-dead collectivists and the freedom loving individualists. The U.S. is bankrupt, China owns us. This administration is going to hand over our sovereignty to the UN. Does anyone EVER recall the UN sending in poll watchers to the U.S. before? EVER? I don't.

I cannot be friends with anyone who voted for Obama. They do not think rationally, they do not digest facts, they are lazy, brainwashed, gimme gimme masses or else weak, ignorant fools who voted for cult of personality because they have the need to be popular with the "cool crowd" like Jay-Z and Springsteen.

That has been their attitude for the past four years - loud, overbearing, and brimming with flat out hatred for this President. Demonized, maligned, and so disrespected. Honestly, it's this very attitude that prompted his win.

It's hard to be optimistic - but I think of my Repub friends (as opposed to an internet message board) and I still have hope.

The recent vote was illegitimate by illegal voters and outright cheating.

I, for one, do not accept it.

trumps tweets have been widely reported so a simple websearch will confirm media matters from a variety of sources.

where it can no longer be confirmed tho is twitter. the tweets have been removed ( presumably by trump himself ).

imo trump has just destroyed all hope of being a king-maker in the GOP ( trump is currently tweeting that romney would have won if romney had "the donald" campaign in more states ). it will be interesting to see if any future candidates for any office seek out his endorsement.

Ordinarily I would say the 'Revolution' is at the ballot box, BUT, when I read reports like this I'm beginning to think Donald Trump has a point:

I think Trump is right.

When the political elite no longer represent the people or their interest then its time.

You do know that Trump was a shill of the Democrats right?
