Plus, she already proved she's incompetent. She pushed the Libyan action, and failed to close the Benghazi compound like all our other allies, and refused or ignored hundreds of requests from our ambassador there for more security. Her claim that she didn't recall those emails didn't pass the smell test. Libya was her showcase to prove she could handle international crises. She laughed when Qaddafi was killed. It was her baby, and she ignored emails from them? I don't believe it. She's either an uncaring ***** or she is incompetent, but for sure she's a liar. If she truly could not recall all the things she claimed she couldn't, then she's mentally not up to the job of president.
I ran out of rep or I would have repped you

I didn't get played either. Why is it that libs think that those of us who didn't vote for Hillary, somehow got played?

I am so glad that Hillary didn't win. She would have just continued on that ruinous road that Obama was on.

People do not learn to control their tempers and egos at 70 years of age. He's not going to change. We've got what all the Trump voters got us.

I'm not even convinced he's particularly smart. How "successful" is he? He won't release his tax records. He could be broke and we wouldn't know it.

The US is a country with a government. It's not a string of casinos or hotels.

And, given his track record with some of those, I'm not optimistic. Are you? I mean, based on the actual evidence?

I think anyone can figure out DC as long as they have a reasonable temperament and some degree of social acumen.

But, he really doesn't have any of that.

Trump cares, though. He cares A LOT.

And, is that not really the problem? He cares A LOT about irrelevant crap and not nearly enough about learning how to do his job.

Hillary voters did their part. Trump voters/3rd party voters gave us our new President.

In a world where 2 hairy homosexuals can be husband and wife and man with a penis can be a woman, then anything goes. In a world where anything goes...then anything goes...even Trump can be prez!

Thanks Obama!!
Disgusting. Stop trying to make Obama standing for all walks of life seem like a bad thing. You can stay mad that Obama played a part in giving the LGBT community an opportunity to be equal.

As it should. People can see through liars and cheats. She shot herself in the foot. Big time.
The scary thing about Trump supporters is that they will sit there and act like their guy isn't the biggest liar of them all. It really is astounding. Really.

The Huffington Post is pure Liberal propaganda. Not even going to click that link.

Actually Trump is following through with his campaign promises. The wall and the Muslim ban was not empty talk. He's following through.

He couldn't convince people where it counted. He actually showed up and didn't take these places for granted. Still didn't matter.

You completely gloss over what many are saying. They are saying that they did not vote for Trump but they most certainly didn't and wouldn't vote for Hillary. That if the (D)'s had presented a candidate that wasn't the personification of corruption they most certainly would have voted for them.

Biden most certainly would have won even as goofy as he can be.

I put actual facts in that rant, but the response was "Learn to use paragraphs." And bahahahaha. And poor formatting. Because that guy cannot refute one thing I said, he resorts to being a grammar nazi. Whatever.

I know Trump is a flawed person, but I think he's not incompetent. People who say that really irk me. You don't build a company that big by being incompetent. He will learn how to do the job.

And the way he and his family have been treated since he took office is shameful. I'm embarrassed for this country.

It's not a Muslim ban. If it was, it would have included more countries. And it's more of a pause to figure out how to better vet people from countries that sponsor terror and/or have no records because they have no functioning government. Don't fall into the language trap that the media sets.
