Agreed. It's extremely unlikely that an impeachment will prevail. Back in the Nixon era, the Congress still had a sense of responsibility to the citizens of the nation. Nixon knew he was going to be removed, and that's why he resigned. The Republicans in Congress today are beholden to big money above all else. They could not care less about you or I or the security of this nation into the future. They will allow Trump to run unchecked for another three years, and in doing so could very well trigger the beginning of the end of the American democracy as we have known it. It's new territory; a President who is willing to abuse his power, and a Congress that is unwilling to do their job to resist him. The founders never dreamed that such a situation might come to pass; now we can clearly see the fallibility of their democratic concept.

It may feel good to you to have a President who expresses himself with the directness of ameathead in the bleachers at a baseball game on his fifth beer, but it won't play to the USA's benefit on the world stage. More mature leaders of other nations are smart enough to see and exploit that.
You want devalued??????????


Oh, I get it, like Obama when he drew the red line. When it was crossed he did nothing. He said it took political courage to not follow up on his promise.


Or when Obama said a video caused the attack on the embassy to avoid it clashing with the narrative he was suing to win an election. those lies had consequences.


And when Obama's whitehouse spokesman said the world is a more tranquil place due to Obama's ME policies.


the world was laughing, our enemies even had cramps in their side from laughing at Obama and the USA.

Obama should have been jailed for lying about Obamacare.

Surely you jest. This guy is so petrified of answering probing questions from the media that he didn't attend the White House Christmas party and has held fewer personal press conferences than any recent president.

Looky... looky minutes after Trumps ..."and my button works" Rocket Man reaches out to South Korea to talk.


That was AWESOME.

There is only one way to deal with those that make threats on your life.
So, just to clarify -- you felt that Trump, taunting a crazy, short-tempered dictator who was threatening nuclear war, by saying that "his nuclear missile button is bigger and better," was awesome?

Nice job bringing up Obama, Trump supporters. Even though Obama wasn't mentioned anywhere in the original post or is president. Seriously, can you people be anymore predictable???????

Yes, the tweets and childish name calling do nothing but make US look like a fool who is being played by the other idiot in NK.

Nothing has stuck... Even velcro don't stick to teflon Don. There is no evidence that velcro has been applied.

So I guess his sitting down with a NYT reporter for a impromptu interview without any prep or rules is what exactly?
Unlike the last President (and some before him) who demanded the interview questions ahead of time and refused to talk about certain subjects our current President just walks in and takes what's tossed at him.

I think that in and of itself refutes the meme you're trying to push.

Try again?
Now if you want to speak on his recent tweets with the twit in NK, that's another thing altogether...
