Not one woman, no blacks, no gays? Not even a hint of a moderate White House.

Did we just vote Hitler and the Third Riche into power? I'm pretty sure that's about how the nazis started, with good intentions.
You put someone in those positions based on what they look like... how very racist of you...

Even if you only read about Hitler, and don't go any further back in history than that, you will see the exact image of what we are witnessing now. Not something that will happen in the future, but is happening right before our eyes.


And just as people thought Hitler was wonderful as he repressed anyone who "didn't look or act like "us", so we see the same as the Donald puts together a team of the worst individuals ever to engage in the America political system.


Remember, it is all good until YOU are the one excluded. Then it is not so funny any longer...

Finally, ONE person who "gets it." Thank you. Keep your head down, it's liable to get ugly from here.

Why are you SO focused on transgender people. It is like every third post of yours. Those who shout the loudest are usually the ones tapping their foot the fastest. And yes, he SHOULD have a transgender person in the administration.

I'm not saying EVERYONE needs to be diverse, and certainly we want the best leadership, ghod knows that's been lacking for twenty years, but there should be some moderate representation.

I think Trump has the POTENTIAL to be the best president since Franklin Roosevelt. But I don't want us to lose the social progress of the past fifty years, but to grow on it.

Tulsi Gabbard, one of the few dems with any guts, met with Trump. It would be a dream come true if he picked her, or someone like her as Sec of State.

Can I also choose people's race for them to score political points?

Where are the Mormon's with Peanut Allergy candidates?

Where are the undocumented resident candidates?

Excuse me, but all I said is that Trump isn't comfortable with minorities. I didn't say that he was a bad man because of it. I didn't say that non whites should be in his cabinet. I made it clear that he's under no obligation to associate with blacks or anyone else, and that his cabinet should be stocked with the people he trusts.

So get off my ass.

Hillary pledged to give half of cabinet posts to women.

But her voice was too annoying or something for the idiots in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin (Ohio, we already knew you were stupid.)
