My thoughts exactly.

You would do better to start respecting the other side or you'll soon find there are many who share the OP's point of view that recognize how poor of a president he is but will vote for him regardless. It's ironic but #resist is actually what the right has been doing all along with Trump, not what the left thinks it's doing against the legitimately elected president
Fine. Then consider me in mourning for the loss of good manners and ethical behavior.

You are correct. The system is broken. We have the best government money can buy.

Can't say I'm really surprised that Trump voters have this attitude. Trump did say that the poorly educated voted for him
That is the attitude of most Trump supporters. Trump pisses off the people they hate (mostly LGBT, social justice warriors, and educated elites) and that's why they support him. It's a dangerous attitude to have in my opinion.

Thanks to conservative judges supporting Citizens United which made that much much worse. Apparently Republican voters love billionaires owning politicians, because I haven't seen a single one complain about it.

Simply occupying a seat and an office isn't a meaningful type of experience. She was a non factor as SoS, and ran a horrible campaign without any question. Even the other Dems pointed out that she ran a crappy campaign and let Trump win something he had no business winning. If you call this absolute nonsense then you are the delusional one.

What SJW insanity? Giving gays the right to marry? Citizens United is far far more damaging than liberal justices could ever dream of.

I am all for the right of gays to marry. I am more referring to her appointing more liberally minded judicial appointees in general, who will further all this social justice stuff we see going on today.

1) No red states have talked about that and 2) Red states can't survive without blue states except Texas.


Oh, I think that the country could get along OK without the west coast and NY/New England. Have you actually paid attention to the red state/blue state map ?

for those Trump haters and there are many: have you considered what has happened since he became President: the stock market has gone nuts: the unemployment rate is almost the lowest in history; new jobs are being created: Medicare is getting a larger raise than in many years and all you can do it talk about what is what a A@@ he is. I also like the fact that he will stand up to anyone who pushes him or crosses him.
I am not a lover of Trump; he is a spoiled brat, probably very insecure, that is why he pats himself on the back all the time: thinks Tweeter is his friend and will never really grow up, but so far we are better off than we were before he took office. The only negative is the racial issues and that is not his creation.

amongst my intelligent and well versed friends, We call Trump Followers- The Renoir Gang.

Gotta love a President that doesn't know his art and seriously insists it's the Real deal.....just like his followers.

Maybe this is the Intermission Presidency, and come next election we will get back to making better choices.
Provided this jokester doesn't hit the Nuke Button .....

Nita, the Stock market was up for almost 8 full years before Trump took office. The job market was going up for 6 and 1/2 years straight before Trump took office. In fact during the eight full months Trump has been in office, about 1.18 million jobs have been added, the lowest total during that same eight month stretch since 2010.
