"Lather. Rinse. Repeat" is right. Ad nauseam...

This about the same old nonsense is about much the same sort of thing. Trump goes from one childish insult to the next, now to the point of creating a "new normal" that is about as presidential as Pee Wee Herman. All these claims about how liberal policy is cause for poverty, homelessness and crap on the streets in San Francisco is all the more ignorant. These are problems that are becoming more and more prevalent across the country, but not because of liberal policy! More prevalent and only to get worse if we don't wisen up fast.

What are the true better conservative policies? More often than not, they are non-existent or just kick the can (or homeless person) down the road for someone else to worry about. The next generation to worry about...

Like ANYONE in one of the most beautiful cities in the world wants people sleeping on the sidewalks and all the crap that goes along with (pun intended). You really have to be numb in the head not to understand why San Francisco, Los Angeles and some of the most wealthy areas in the country have not been able to solve the problem of homelessness to ANYONE'S satisfaction.

Even more numb in the head is to buy into Trump's all-too-easy punching bag tactics that are no more productive than all the stupid drive-by comments posted in these threads!
This forum just isn't as interesting and informative as it used to be before Trump became president. They see Trump's numerous lies as being totally irrelevant to him being president. Now too many people quite passionately demanding you accept is as true that Trump is a hell of a great president and that being liberal is always bad and being conservative always good. I think some are coming from Russia.

Is there anyone on the US who does not realize that Trump is trying to cause division? Trump is trying to do what he elitists have done for decades. Divide and conquer. Trump has blamed every group with the exception of white for all the woes of the working folks. Trump, a racist, has been especially hard on blacks, Hispanics, and muslims. Trump has attacked the city of Baltimore and now the state of California and if you live in a liberal town you will be next.

The truth is that in the US we have a corporate run government that enjoys socialism for the top money and capitalism for the working people. Under Trump the top 10% is paying little to no taxes at all while the working class is paying the freight to run the country. The elites, and Trump, are trying to shift the blame for this travesty from big money to the humble Hispanic immigrant simply trying to find a decent place to live and work. Trump isn't overlooking other groups either. Since Trump ran for office he has blamed blacks and muslims too. Do you think that immigrants, blacks, or muslims are the cause of your economic issues? Do you think these are the people who make the decisions to move factories overseas, or close a manufacturing plant, or simply not paying coal miners for their hard earned money? It is time to wake up and realize what has really happened to American jobs and it has nothing to do with minorities.

Trump belongs in the jailhouse and not the White House. The republicans who support Trump are guilty of the Trump's crimes as well as he is simply by remaining silent. Trump followers are a dwindling group and Trump is running scared. Trump will expand his attack on anything in the hopes he can gain support.
Trump is nothing more than an demented old man yelling, "get off my lawn."

I think he's addicted to being in the limelight. Narcissism. No press is worse than bad press. But, people responding to his misogynistic, racial and inflammatory posts should just say nothing?

I do agree the news channels, the 24 hour ones, repeat stuff over and over again to inflame the situation though. That's their business. They should say a few words and move on.

You can't provide any logical reason why Trump should not have responded strongly to Cummings false accusation. if Democrat's look for Trump's attention, they shouldn't get mad when gives them his attention.

I think it relevant to point out a guy calling Trump racist hasn't done anything solve poverty in his own district.
Why would I "admit" I am a liberal when I am not? There really are people who aren't liberal, but don't agree with all or anything that Trump does.

So I wonder if people are sleeping at night under the overpasses in conservative Oklahoma City. I've seen it for myself before and it was in broad daylight, not night time.

If I lived in California, I still would never vote for Trump being a Black man.
As I see it as a white, America has become so bad politically that I haven't seen fit to vote for a Democrat or Republican for president since 2012. For now, it looks like things won't be any better and probably worse for 2020.

Sorry, but the above is more truth than Trump lovers and supporters can take.

This. There's a lot of states in just as bad of a shape as CA...

Yet... he doesn't call those other states a disgrace to the country. I guess the fact that CA is trying to make him disclose financials has nothing to do with it..
