Surely the reason has nothing to do with the question not being answered countless times in countless ways. What then is the reason if anyone is really attempting any intelligent understanding of the Trump dynamic that has gripped America since Trump took office?
I consider myself fairly intelligent and by no means a Trump supporter. The question still remains, how has him being President ruined your day to day life?

For me I go to work, make some money, go home, play Playstation, eat and hang out with my kids and spouse. I go fishing sometimes on the weekends or other recreational excursions, and not ONE time have I thought about how Trump is wrecking America. In fact, America is exactly the same as it was during the Obama years.

During Obama, I went to work, made some money, went home, etc etc... Times were certainly harder in the Obama years as the housing bubble really put a damper on my ability to sell luxury items, but we survived and I'm still here today.

You know what I'll be doing during the next presidency? Same crap I'm doing today.

Let's just ask one question. Was Trump's comment necessary?

the in migration is mostly illegal and legal immigrants. California is losing more residents than it is gaining.

California is what Democrats plan to do to the entire country. Use immigration as a tool to change the electorate to achieve one party rule forever.

if that happens at national level, a Hugo Chavez type dictator will become a real possibility. Dictators typically get into power in countries with massive percentage of poor people.

Totally, eh? Did you know, for example, that the mayor of San Diego is Republican? Or that areas like central California (Kern County and so on) are conservative too? That Orange County was until not that long ago?

Your comment is part of the problem. We're already a divided country. Bad enough Trump made the comments that he did. But what is also sad are those who agree with him. This comment demonstrates that we don't need politicians to divide American society.

Apparently Covfefe is one of five racehorses named after one of Trump's Tweets.

Another one of the five is a horse named.....Hamberder.

Klan is nothing but a few shock artists now trying to get the media worked up.

Longtime leftwing Democratic Senator, Robert Byrd, was a member of the KKK in his youth.
I suspect that even today there are a lot of hoods tucked away in Republican sock drawers.

In his last autobiography, Byrd explained that he was a KKK member because he "was sorely afflicted with tunnel vision—a jejune and immature outlook—seeing only what I wanted to see because I thought the Klan could provide an outlet for my talents and ambitions." Byrd also said in 2005, "I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times ... and I don't mind apologizing over and over again. I can't erase what happened."

I underlined that part of Byrd's quotation that afflicts Trumpers today the most. Tunnel vision. They latch on to a piece of the puzzle and think they have the whole picture. It never is. Things are never as simple as they seem to Trump or his cult.

I just took friends from out of town to Zuma Beach and Griffith Observatory today. It was their first time out here.

Yeah, both places were empty. Not a soul around because CA is a disgrace.
