I'm not complaining. Take part all you like.
I'm simply pointing out that someone complained that this was another Trump thread and yet you both participated in it when you could quite easily ignore it. It's not like there aren't a million other threads.
I don't use the CD ignore feature - in general I don't find a need for it. I think I've used it maybe twice in 8 years.

" I want Trump to win. The last election was most entertaining with all the crying and screaming from the left. I never laughed so hard during any election. I want to experience that again.


He says he's not prepared to lose. Even if he wins, after the term. I dont think he ever intends to leave the WH. Its going to be great tv. Its great, a lunatic in office on prime tv.

Trump bow out gracefully? That's rich. Name one time in Trump's life where he showed grace or class.

All the violence and lies from the left should secure another victory. They fuel Trump's supporters.

This is what some get out of an election, with citizens voting in an attempt to get an appropriate candidate to run the country? Gee, maybe in order to vote, people should be required to take a maturity exam, first.

You got that right. Never has there been another in position as president who has acted in such a way. It's appalling.

Well, I apologize if that's not the correct term. Help me out. I have a hard time saying someone was elected when they lost the actual vote. So what term would be less offensive?
The "actual vote" was the votes that were cast. The Electoral College is how the president is elected. Both candidates knew this and competed for those votes.

He'll be on Fox News every day. He'll be on Twitter every minute. He'll still be holding campaign rallies (hell he still hasn't stopped campaigning against Hillary)

But the non-Fox media needs to ignore him. The people need to ignore him.

I know we won't. There is an obsession in this country with talking about the last president. I see people talking about Obama more now than when he was president.

But the more you talk about, fight with, argue with, report on Trump the more of a voice he's going to continue to have in this country. And EVEN IF you are someone who believes that Trump has done a good job with certain aspects of running the country, you're blind or a liar if you say that you think he's had a positive influence on the people of this country. Once he goes back to just being a public figure that's all he'll have. He'll only be able to stir up angst, anger & hate.

IF he loses the election in 2020 (which I suspect he will, but he could still be handed the presidency like he was in 2016) we NEED to ignore him.
I think you're wrong about one point: If he loses, Fox probably won't want him on - which will devastate him.

its not offensive its just factually incorrect. the EC IS the vote and always has been. you can whine and cry and stomp your feet all you want about the popular vote but it is irrelevant.
