How blind can people be to not see what has been going on.
Trump gave them a chance and they failed. They were never going to enact Trumps agenda and now that have used up any leverage they have with Trump. Trump has the leverage now. He is not obligated to sign anything they produce. They won't get the votes to override every veto or legislation sent to his desk and he won't sign without getting something in return. Congress is up for election in 2018 not Trump.

The Boy Scouts had to issue an apology for the so-called president's maniacal speech, which was not only overtly political, but was the antithesis of everything Boy Scouts stand for.

Sad!!!
i would add that his big plan to get rid of ISIS still has not materialized. What about rebuilding infrastructure. All talk no action.

He's a third-party president and that party's ideology is white nationalism.

I never thought trump was a die hard republican, thats why I voted for him. He is a nationalist and populist /america first candidate who won with pat buchanans playbook and he has done a fantastic job. Cracking down on illegal immigration and america first policies, etc. amazing start . The exact opposite pf the typical cuckservative

He's a con man and he conned just enough uneducated people to win. Oh, how he loves the uneducated, a direct quote from President Bonkers.
100% truth. Has to quote this to make sure Trump supporters see this.

Donald Trump is NOT a Republican.

He's a simpleton. The GOP is the only thing keeping him and his family out of jail.
