I haven't seen anything whatsoever that makes me think that he's a crooked President, he may be a crooked businessman and he may very well have done some shady **** in real estate but I'm not paying him to build me a house and I'm not looking to him for a new job with the Trump organization. He's lowered my taxes, he's lowered our nation's unemployment rates, he's helped US veterans like myself get the services they deserve, he's given more attention to our Southern border than the last 5 presidents combined and he actually gives a damn about working out more fair trade deals for Americans. If that's my agenda then yes, I agree 100%. If he did all of that while screwing hookers, ordering fast food burgers, playing golf and pissing off liberals I don't care.

Gorsuch, yes. Kavanaugh? Hell no. You don't want a guy who is shaky on the 4th amendment and who flunked his first test as an Originalist on the Court, right?

So conservatives believe that personal integrity, honesty, and ethics are no longer important in elected officials. Corruption, accepting foreign interference, obstructing justice, and constant lying are all perfectly acceptable as long as our Team wins.

Got it.

He's done great so far IMO and he's light years ahead of what we would have ended up with on SCOTUS had the old hag won in 2016. I really look forward to seeing who Trump replaces RBG with when she finally takes the room temperature challenge soon.

I didn't say that, all I said was I'm getting what I want and at this point in the game I really don't care what it takes to get it. I'd love to get what I want while having a rainbows and unicorns President in the White House who likes to pet kittens and tend to his garden but that doesn't work when you have the kind of opposition that Trump has. Democrats would destroy any ethical pushover POTUS we could have nominated or elected. We needed a royal Grade A ******* to go up against the Grade A *******s on the left and we got him.

Both teams are 100% full of that these days, I'll take what I can get and hope that things get better in the future.

Do you think the idea of prosecuting a president after he leaves office gives Obama any pause? President Netflix sure has been keeping a low profile lately.

You don't have what you think you have !!!
In the same way you won't have what you want to have should democrats gain power and put their ideas into policy !!! Unless you want poverty and despair and that is the unknown !!! Maybe you really would like that !!!

Kavanaugh was always a crappy judge. He might be worse than Kennedy in the long run, but that is what happens when Trump kisses up to the establishment and nominates a standard-issue GOP establishment swamp-creature and George W. Bush lackey.

No. But I'm certain it does for Trump.
