I remember in the days leading up to the 2016 election, the so-called MSM hypothesizing on how Trump and the GOP might refuse to accept his loss. Turns out, we all know how that turned out as we continue to watch Democrats refuse to accept the results.

There will be celebrations across America when Trump is out of office.
We will have a lot of damage to clean up and allies to apologize to.

And if you think Trump will do anything gracefully ESPECIALLY "bow out" then you've already got a jump start on exactly what I'm suggesting, because obviously you've been ignoring him since he became president.

I am looking forward to Mueller testifying before Congress on Wednesday. Strange how Trump and Barr have tried every way under the sun to stop it. Mueller found plenty of really bad things. He did not exonerate Trump. It was not in his hands to charge him with obstruction even though he found at least 10 instances of obstruction of justice. I do not believe Trump will even finish his first term. He's in a lot of legal trouble for all manner of crimes.

What have Trump and Barr done to try to stop it?

I'm a huge fan of leaving the loser of any election alone.

This nonstop campaigning and mudslinging is exhausting.

Yes, if Trump DOES not win in 2020, he'll be an ex-president and we do tend to have certain times they reappear (like inaugurations, speaking engagements, library openings, etc).

But, that's pretty much it. He can go back to being a private citizen and that should be the end of that.

I will personally not want to hear much about him after he's out of office unless there's some compelling reason (legal battles related to the presidency, etc).

Same goes for whoever runs against him, if they lose. I don't want to hear much about them later.

Fine if they're an occasional interview or speaker, that sort of thing.

But at the rally in Greenville last week, there were POSTERS about Hillary Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.

MONICA LEWINSKY. That mess is ancient history. Good grief.

What's really funny is the only people I hear talking about Hillary and Obama are Republicans. Dems have pretty much accepted that it's over. Some think he won fair, some don't, but we're over it, and onto trying to preserve America the best we can under Trump.

But if you try to discuss why Trump is wrong on ANY topic, be it racism, the budget, the economy, foreign affiars, being a liar, bowing to dictators, etc., you will almost always get (from his supporters, mind you) one of two responses: "But Hillary...." or "But Obama...."

So tell me again who has a hard time accepting that the past is the past?

I hear the bomb throwing name calling rhetoric coming out of the numerous dem presidential candidates....and after spewing a half hour of hateful comments about the "other" side....they end with "I can bring this country together".

Seriously....you need an education in human relations. You don't bring people together by calling them, or their side of an issue, all manner of hateful, divisive and horrible things and then say, support me, I love you all and will bring us all together.

HRC's "deplorable" comment was about as bad as it gets. She calls half of Trumps supporters "deplorables", and thinks that's a workable strategy to getting elected and bringing the country together?????

That and of course forgetting, or ignoring" the electoral college issue. She should have visited California, where she was a slam dumk less...and spent that time elsewhere. But she apparently knew better and many now realize what a boneheaded decision that was.

It feels like what would happen to trump politics if he loses, does it become a wing of the party like the freedom Caucasus/ tea party, does it keep a hold of the party and the GOP spins populist. I think most people would find that conversation interesting, but how in the world this turned into a re-interpretation of the 2016 elections is insane.
Trump supporters cant even entertain the idea without saying the country is going to hell or its an impossibility or talking about Hillary. Jesus.

We need to start ignoring him now, not in 2020.


He's the biggest troll and attention seeker in History.
