Like a democrat scorned.


I have lived 80 years(in a month and a half) and never have I, in all those years seen such hatred for a President, as I am seeing from the democrats.


Years ago, when the opposing party won, the losing party picked up the pieces, and moved on, hoping to do better in the future.
That is the way it was in every election that I can remember.
When the election for president between Truman and Dewey took place, before all the votes were counted, the New York Times made fools out of themselves by publishing in huge headlines, "Dewey wins".


Well, he did not win, and I never recall anyone stating how much they hated Truman back then, that is so evident now in the democratic party against Mr. Trump.



This hatred because of Trump winning, has gone on for almost two years, with no signs of letting up.
I have to ask you dems, what is the purpose of all your hatred, and what do you feel it accomplishes, other than making you look like complete fools?



Bob.

Did you ever think that some people see good reason to oppose Trump? You said yourself you've never seen this before.

Obviously in years past, there may have been feelings of opposition, but never did those feelings, or objections last two years or more, and certainly were not broadcast publicly in the media, like today.


My honest feeling is, democrats really need to face reality, and get a grip.
Holding a grudge for two years?
What is wrong with you people.?
Hillary was not the second coming of Christ.

I stopped reading the Times when they endorsed moonbeam Brown his first attempt at running for governor.
That told me where their ideology lies.

That's because we've never had such a blatantly bigoted and unprofessional a president as Trump - and the biggest crook since at least Nixon besides.

I was very interested in your post, Bob, but you seem to believe that Democrats hate Trump just because Democrats lost. Surely you know that's not true. In fact, I hope you don't need to be reminded that it was the Republicans who, on losing to Obama, immediately plotted to block him at every turn. By the way, no one, ever, said Hillary was the Second Coming of Christ. In fact, you must have noticed the huge support for Bernie Sanders. But Trump was the embodiment of so many despicable elements that it made Hillary seem all the better by comparison.

I hope you'll also admit that never, in your 80 years, has there ever been a president as ignorant, as openly bigoted, as sexually predatory, as money-grubbing, as emptily boastful, as flagrantly insulting, as malicious and spiteful as Trump. From what I used to hear from an older friend, apparently a lot of people disliked Truman, but it was still clear that he tried to be fair-minded, and he definitely had considerable political experience.

People don't hate with a goal. They hate as a natural reaction. It's my natural reaction to all those despicable traits I mentioned above. What I suppose it accomplishes, though, is that it finally drives lazy Dems to the polls, to take back the House.

Bob.
Actually it was the Chicago Tribune, not the NYT:

Other than that good post. As a liberal myself, I believe there are two things that MUST be extirpated from the Democratic party: 1) Identity politics; 2) TDS.

I don't care for President Trump, and certainly didn't vote for him. But he did win the election, and he is POTUS. The remedy is for Democrats to win in 2020. The vat that holds acid eventually eats a hole in itself.

He was friends with them for years. He learned their secrets and decided he wants none of that. Now they fear being exposed for what they are.
