Presidents aren't removed based on polls or approval ratings. An actual crime has to be committed with real - not media fabricated - evidence proving it. So far all liberals have done is destroy their own credibility.

I've already addressed this point in post #5.

And I will once again remind you that the evidence is not fabricated. Even Fox News is reporting on it now, in case that is all you believe.

Yes. Fox is reporting on the hearsay. There is no proof outside of hearsay, that Trump
Did anything

The "Libs" are not to blame for that, the people who voted for him are.

The real issue is that he is not really interested in being a good prez, can't seem to realize his speech and actions have consequences, and is a total, unmitigated disaster even at this early date.

So you wanted people to vote for Hillary even though she called them deoplorables and promised to appoint far left activist loons as SC justices?

Fox wouldn't be running it if they thought there is any chance it was fake.

Also, you do realize that a White House staffer cannot actually go on record and give their name when reporting on a conversation like this to the media right? They would be fired instantly.

Also, Trump basically said the exact same thing on camera to Lester Holt. He said he was thinking of the Russia investigation when he fired Comey. This statement today was a little more explicit, but certainly in the same vein.

Also, the White House already put out a statement accepting that he said it.

I agree that CANNOT be the argument now. You clearly wanted conservative policy and justices and that is OK. Even if Trump is removed, you will still get that with Pence.

"REPORTEDLY", seriously, not again! What does that word mean to you? Look it up!

Know what, try reading beyond the headline, or maybe listen to the video on the link you provided.

As for the OP, I just laugh at the liberals as they destroy the Democratic party. No one is paying attention to the handful left with their "panties in a wad" over the defeat of Hillary and their hope of freebies and amnesty. Yep, you might have to get a job, and your big box or fast food job isn't going to pay $15 an hour. Time to earn and not just yearn for it and demand it all be free!

The liberals just need to keep their thumbs in their mouth and go sleepy time, and let Trump and the rest of us rebuild our nation!

Some good points and diplomatic post by the OP.

The toxic, in your face, hysterical, and arrogant attitude of many liberals are creating a whole new batch of conservatives, and strengthening the resolve of others. A lot of people see the SJW nutjobs crying and screaming and rambling on about the supposed evils of white guys and decide that they really REALLY don't want to be anything like that. Its gotten to the point where I'd rather support Trump regardless of how good or terrible he may be doing. I don't want the neoliberals to have any type of victory. The more common sense moderate liberals I think need to somehow distance themselves from the far left lunatics instead of courting them, and then the middle just might embrace their party again.

Of course, the Trump supporters would say any evidence that is presented is fake before conceding it was actually evidence.
This investigation didn't just begin when Comey was fired.

Multiple investigations involving thousands of investigators have been going on for almost a year now.

And with all the leaks going on in Washington right now, you'd think if they had found something ANYTHING that looked remotely like collusion that it would have come out by now.

But so far, after all this time and money spent on trying to create a narrative that provides Democrats with a scapegoat for losing the election and a distraction to try to cripple Trump....

They've come up with a grand total of diddly squat. .....GOOSE EGG.....


NADA.

OP - I get where you are coming from.

Despite the fact that impeachment is actually a very difficult bar to reach, a significant public outcry would lead to some action that I believe would eventually lead to a change in leadership in the White House.

As for the divide in this country between the people who are Trump loyalists, it will be interesting to see how the moderates or those who voted for him and may be changing their opinions fall out. I don't believe those who are inclined to regret their vote will remain loyalists because of liberal "hysteria."

However, the core loyalist Trump voter is undeterred by any evidence whatsoever that interrupts their narrative. And they are quite vocal.
