The culprits of the destruction of the working class can be found on Wall Street and the ruling donor class. Why is that so hard to grasp? They dont spend billions to fund the puppets people vote for because they feel generous. Its not charity, its corruption to get what they want and everyone else does not matter.
I also always wonder about it. businesses want 30% margin in everything, banks want 15% interest, produce everything inexico and china and yet talk abput caharity and philontropy.

This is another case of classic Trumpism. His base will be happy to hear this and haters will agitate. People are dumb to even get this for 4 years.

IMO, I can only give him credit for being a egotistical man child. The fact that his supporters ignore the overwhelming facts when it’s on video is what worries the rest of us.

Do you fight to get big money out of politics? No? Then how can you complain when the elected reps sell you out?

Today, unions are essentially a money laundering operation for the Democrat Party, so I don't give them the same carte blanche that you seem to be willing to do.

They are just as dangerous to working Americans as Steyers, Soros, Bloomberg, Fahr, Paloma Partners, Euclidean Capital, Renaissance Technologies, Bain Capital, et. al.

FTR, Republicans have been replaced as the party of corporate whores by Democrats.

OK... so you just aren't capable of perceiving sarcasm. I'm sure you can still lead a full life and all. But be aware that when you proclaim it doesn't exist, even after it's been pointed out to you, everyone "with have a brain" is rolling their eyes. You might as well just write "kick me I'm stupid" on a post-it and stick it to your butt.

Trumps past statements and his ego says your wrong but carry on with your delusions. It seems to fit you and the rest of his supporters. Politicians love blind loyally.

Here's the thing too-- Trump has a career of being a self centered, loud, boastful, ego maniac. He owned that and was proud of it and now when he behaves the same way he has for over 30 years in public -- you folks try to tell spin -- it's all a joke.

Yeah the joke is on us....we know.
