Some haven't a CLUE what "sarcasm is!

You probably believe every joke for late night "hosts" is NOT a joke at all but FACTS!

Presidential Appointees can be fired for ANYTHING or NOTHING. Even Comey admitted that.


I am SURE you "remember" EVEN THE DEMS WERE CALLING FOR COMEY TO BE FIRED! Then again, probably NOT!

Civics 101!

The president as Chief Executive Office has the FINAL decision and DECIDES what investigations can and CANOE be done.

Again, Civics 101
And you failed Civics—the President does NOT have the final decision on what investigations can and cannot be done...that is a lie Trump and his acolytes keep pushing—

Once again—context is everything

Anyone knows the president has wide latitude to fire WH staffers and cabinet members

The crucial questions is WHY that is being done

Firing someone to obstruct justice is a very different case/cause than firing someone who HIMSELF or HERSELF has committed a crime (say sexual harassment or vehicular manslaughter or child abuse or taking bribes from lobbyists or tax fraud) or even just proving incompetent to do a good job—

Trump has proven to lie more than the WaPo or any liberal media source you dislike...
You choose not to “report” that truth, however...

I actually believe Trump’s supporters wouldn’t fault him for doing that exact thing...
They don’t fault him for working with the Russians to claim an election
Or for any of his other criminal acts before or after stepping into the Oval Office

And the only time Trump claims to be telling a joke is when one of his braggadocio statements rebounds back on him
Trump has NO sense of humor
Apparently can’t tell a joke or take one...so sarcasm isn’t really something he is familiar with

Sure, Trump has the RIGHT to do that.
That doesn't change WHY he did it.
He did it to cover up his crime - and he got away with it BECAUSE of Civics 101.
That doesn't change the fact that he obstructed justice (even if legally he can do so). The ONLY reason he was able to do that was because of his position as President. If ANYONE ELSE had taken action to stop an investigation they would have been charged.
Trump is not innocent of criminal behavior - Mueller declined to say he was. He just got away with it because he's President. Pretty messed up - and totally corrupt.

And you think Medicare is the reason?

80% of all workers get their health care insurance through their employer. "folks back then" CONTINUED to get their health care insurance from their employer THROUGH RETIREMENT.

"Try telling your GOP base that they have to go live with their kids"
Are you this naive to believe ONLY the GOP base would do this and NOT the dem base also?


Plea STOP with juvenile postings.
No they didn't. When medicare was put in place roughly half the folks over 65 had NO hospital insurance AT ALL - and most of those who did were still working.

"...When Medicare was enacted in 1965, only a little more than one-half of the aged were insured for hospital care. With the implementation of Medicare on July 1, 1966, virtually the entire elderly population in the Nation was made eligible for Part A coverage, and almost all had voluntarily enrolled in Part B..."

I guess by YOUR DEFINITION it's "juvenile" to have the facts on your side eh?
LOL

You have NO IDEA that makes fell KNOWING not a SINGLE DEM is "depending on socialism'!


The MORE you post, the deeper the hole gets you are in.
Older Americans generally support the GOP. Many of them are the same folks who are on SS and Medicare. SS and Medicare are perfect examples of socialism - where the government gives you money and provides for your health, hence the GOP base depends on socialism.

The truth hurts.

Mr. Trump does not understand the most basic principles of government spelled out in the Constitution.

Quote:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
It's Orwellian to the nth degree, particularly by how the Trump administration illustrates their de facto motto of 'Ignorance is Strength'.

Apparently Mr. Trump's ignorance of the Constitution allows &/or entitles him to violate his oath of office?

Baffling.

I certainly do have " a clue". I believe the president of our country should address issues and stop bragging about himself. Anyone who is ok with him doing such things needs to get ""a clue".
