It is pretty well known that Trump is obsessed with Obama, and undoing anything he thinks Obama did. I admit I skimmed... but the lead (which frequently is wrong) is "Trump IS terrified"

I'm sure it gave you a rise, but I didnt make it past the first obsequious sentence. It's obviously extremely partisan.

If Trump would have any concern with the human beings and the natural world instead of the fantasy he lives inside of.....we'd all be much better off.

Being in last places means a lot of us - and the natural world - will suffer. That's nothing to celebrate but, then again, there is absolutely nothing anyone can do to help except get him out of that office.

His spread has risen again - even in the last couple of hours!

Whatever he is doing, 30% more Americans certainly don't approve of it...than do. That's massive!

I haven't really ran by anyone enjoying their ACA. You? People that are getting any sort of discount are getting it from those taxed for it. It's not hard to figure out.

Those who qualify have to file a tax return and meet income requirements. They pay into it. Sit down.

I am 100% certain, no doubt in my mind, that Obama will be remembered as a much better president than Trump. He just outright lied and made up that the Chinese called him to work on a trade deal. The Chinese called him out on that lie. He did this only to boost the stock market. He is making the United States the laughing stock of the world. He is already being compared to Herbert Hoover. We need a real leader to fix this in 2020. God help us if Trump wins again.

Wrong.

Those are the requirements to get a subsidy, but that is unrelated to the policy itself. Some of us lost policies that we liked (that were quite personally comprehensive), and were stuck with the ACA regulation policy choices on the exchange while paying 100% of the premium because we don't qualify for a subsidy.

What this nation is going to remember are the anti-American communists and their positions of power in the so-called press (their propaganda organs) that attempted a soft-coup by falsely projecting their historically-obvious Russian origins onto a democratically elected President.

And here you are after being held up to the light, still repeating the same poorly crafted propaganda lines. An act that predicts that this isn't going to end well for your side.

The Left and their propaganda organs (press) have fatally impugned their core character. Obama and Trump aren't remotely comparable. Obama has communist propagandists dictating his image to the public, with the inverse image being dictated about their enemies.

The "better President" is at minimum evident by his lack of endorsement by the anti-American, anti-democratic communist propagandist nasties that serve as Obama's public relations team and therefore attempt obfuscate any objective notion of Presidential fitness and worth.
