Those three are better than Trump but that's a super low bar. They're all bad people as far as I can tell. Even "moderate democrats" these days are lousy with corporate money, though not as grossly compromised as the GOP overall.

I hated him. He is a half-wit, and Cheney made him do awful things. Of course he seems like a likable doofus today, but that doesn't excuse the awful stuff he did in Iraq.

Ask those who voted for Trump.

The fact that America is still a functional country throughout it's most dysfunctional executive branch in history, is actually a pretty good silver lining.

Everyday is a reminder that we elected someone who simply did not actually expect to win. It was a publicity stunt gone wrong.

What astonishes me is how much power this POTUS has. He seems to be able to do what he wants (e.g., instant tariffs on aluminum and steel). He reminds me of the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland, who was always crying "off with their heads."

I just write it off to the war that Trump fights. It's gonna be messy, especially with millions of people all trying to find something to fuel their outrage, and prove their own conspiracy theories.
I don't care about the behind the scenes chaos. I like the result, and that's what matters.

26 Federal judges have been confirmed. Things have rarely looked better for America.

Taxes have been reduced.

America is moving forward.
Little else matters.




No, we are moving backwards because these tax cuts have added $1 trillion to our deficit. Who's going to pay for this.

We already know the answer to this. They got the 50k Christmas bonus while we got the turkey. You have Trumplings who think this is fair deal. They are laughing at us.

Combine it with dozens of people without security clearance, hiring Mooch for 11 days and people like Omarosa, reality tv stars, Flynn acting as a foreign agent, hiring and keeping wife beaters (Porter) - I mean isn't that too much ?

Any CEO or executive hiring people like that and volatility would have been fired long time ago. Why do we have such a low bar for POTUS? Oh right, Fox News and right wing don't care unless Obama wears a wrong suit or his daughters are not smiling.

Hope Hicks out: People who left, were fired from Trump administration - Business Insider
Very funny thread. Especially after seeing what so far has been discovered from the Obama government and fake Dossier used to spy on political opponents!

More is coming out to show the worst WH administration of all centuries which was under Obama!
