He even looks like a whipped dog.
He also forever ruined The Cat in the Hat book for me.

Yes, I do. Didn't vote for him, but don't think he's done any better or worse than other recent presidents (other than insane tweets), and don't believe he's "literally Hitler". If something comes of the Russia investigation, I'll also support his removal.

Trump is many things and none of them are good. He is the standard bearer for a party that has become more and more a crime syndicate than a legit party and Cruz is just another example of one of the things very wrong with the party.

He's just attacking his opponent O'Rourke and democrats. And some people are calling for a rush to judgement in the Guyger/Jean shooting. You said yourself it appears to just be a case of gross negligence. The District Attorney who is a black woman said the same thing about not rushing to judgement.

She shot him. What else is there that I’m missing?

I didn’t advocate for the electric chair, but the thought of her keeping her job is ludicrous.

Whaaaaaat? That’s his response to the Botham Jean shooting. And you wonder why African Americans remain highly suspicious of the Republican Party!

Well she most likely will be fired even if by some outside chance no charges are filed, but that doesn't mean she needs to be fired before the investigation has even concluded. It's pretty standard for the firing to happen after the investigation.

The majority of decent Americans will never have an interaction with a police officer. If you draw their attention, it is for a reason.
