Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
After some experience in this forum, I've decided to limit my responses to comments that seem to hit on something substantively worth commenting about. Most comments in this forum are hardly worth reading through because they are nothing but partisan pea-shooter drive-by comments that help some people get off by insulting others. Just ignorant. "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!

Compared to whom? Compared to what political figure would you consider him a disgrace? What has he personally done to disgrace the country? To me, as an American, I go about my day to day and live my life without any ramifications of this so called disgrace to our country you so speak of.

Just like with Baltimore, he's not bringing it up out of a sense of altruism to help the locale.

He's lashing out and bringing it up because Newsom signed a law that requires disclosure of tax returns in order to be on the ballot for President in California.

From your POV, but not from the POV of anyone with a sense of objectivity.

Your posts reveal that you think pretty much anyone who disagrees with you is a liberal.

I agree with the bolded part. Trump responds to criticism with an unusual amount of rancor. Sometimes his retorts are applicable (Baltimore really IS in crappy shape) and other times he’s rather imaginative with his winding adventures of smack talk. No disagreement from me; I didn’t vote for him.

He isn’t the topic at the moment however, and while whataboutism certainly has a role in some discussion, how Trump behaves isn’t at all the topic at hand.

I’m a San Francisco native by the way, and still recall when Newsom paid off the homeless to go somewhere else. That wasn’t much of a policy; it just offered us a bit of breathing room while the homeless all settled down south to be a thorn in LA’s side. This too has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

So if a politician attacks him, he should attack where that politician lives and not the politician himself? Doesn't make much sense. And as others have said, he is the President of all of America not just the conservative areas. Trump is a disgrace to the office of the President.
