  1. Once again, his supporters see this as: STANDING UP TO THE ELITES. SAYING IT LIKE IT IS. PUTTING AMERICA FIRST. They just run to his corner when he does shit like this. I agree that if he were to keel over from a heart attack from gorging on fast food his whole life that I wouldn't shed a fucking tear.
  2. I think he's gonna squeak by again with less than 40% of the vote regardless of who the dems put up or where the economy goes. His team is already screaming FAKE NEWS and placing blame on China, the media, the dems, immigrants, and your grandmother when it comes to any recession that may come. And it'll work. His cult will proudly follow him into the pits of hell and believe every word he says while doing so. A lot of people laughed at the notion of Oprah running for president, and she's certainly not my first choice. But in terms of sheer media domination, she's the ONLY one who can suck the air out of the room he's in. He needs the media. It's his oxygen. Without them, he'll wither up and die. And as far as I'm concerned, no one else can come close to do eclipsing him on that front. I don't care if she's another celebrity. She can win. And at this point, I just want beat him and his followers and salt the earth after the victory.
  3. Fitting that it’s almost the exact percentage that voted for Donald Trump.
  4. These shootings are a stain on the fabric of our country but what's even more troubling is the collective shrug that seems to be more common with each shooting that happens. Like, an 'oh well, bad things happen' type of mentality. I was out a bar on Saturday night and NOT A SINGLE PERSON mentioned these shootings. And on Sunday we did a winery and brewery tour and, again, NO ONE TALKED ABOUT THEM. It's chilling that as a society we're beginning to just accept these shootings.
  5. So morally repulsive. Its incomprehensible that a sitting American president is standing up on stage, actively bashing members of the U.S House who happen to be women of color, and encouraging a chant of “SEND HER BACK!” I’ve hung my head in shame for 3 years over the vile rhetoric this madman has spewed. But it truly gets worse and worse with each passing month. And the fact a national political party is allowing this to continue makes it all the more horrifying.
  6. What do you even say or do anymore? I’m not really shocked over this tweet. He’s been pandering to the dark underbelly of this country since he strode down that escalator. The outrage empowers him and his supporters, they justify, deflect, and point the fingers back at whomever he’s attacking. They tip toe around what says or tweets and gently slap his hand or tell us to focus on his ‘policies’ and what he ‘does’, not what he ‘tweets’ . He’s revving up his base for 2020 and this is what does it. My hope is that there are enough moderates left who either didn’t vote at all or couldn’t bring themselves to vote for Hillary that are so fed up with this behavior that hey’ll come up in numbers like they did last fall. It’s my hope. But to be honest, I’m not very hopeful at this point.
  7. Mayor Pete is indeed a charming, intelligent, well spoken, and witty guy. He's adorable. I'm just not entirely sure he'd be able to go toe to toe with Trump - if he even comes close to winning the nomination. Obviously he could run circles around in him in policy but that's not what gets anyone elected anymore nationally. And this whole Biden as the Trump Slayer is just mind boggling. Don't get me started on that. I see him as a John Kerry/Hillary Clinton type already.
  8. Every reptile, mammal, amphibian, and insect on your continent fits that description, Jan.
  9. Why was a wild bird like this being ‘raised’ as a pet anyway? Why is this practice even legal? These are wild animals. They belong in the WILD. How many incidents like this need to happen for humans to understand this?
  10. Hillary was what a majority of us were prior to Election Day in 2016: Cocky and over confident. Because a majority of us couldn’t possibly imagine that a failed businessman and 3rd rate reality televion Star who pandered to the underbelly of American society could ever become president. You can’t fault her for that. Anyone going up against Donald Trump would’ve probably been the same way. But Hillary wasn’t exactly anyone. She had perceptions of her baked in. Just as he did. The biggest difference is that HIS supporters were rabidly loyalty and inspired by her. And he had more of them. And they came out in droves. Lets remember he only win by about 80,000 votes between two states. Mine (Michigan) being one of them. And let’s also remember ALL three of those states (MI, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania) voted in democratic senators and governors in 2018. These are not red states. They’re very pragmatic, fluid states that bend with the political winds. The rust belt was willing to give Trump a chance. Depending on who the Dems put up in 2020, I’m not so sure these states are willing to do so again. Even despite a good economy.
  11. While I’ve never been the biggest fan of Nancy Pelosi, I have to say, I’m impressed with her grit and how masterfully she played Trump. Finally, after nearly 4 years of him plowing over his rivals with name calling and tweets and using the right wing media mega phone, he got beaten BADLY and out maneuvered beautifully by her. She is having none of this guys bullshit and has proven to be the only person to make him look like the sniveling, thin skinned, loser that he is. I’m looking forward to seeing how their dynamic plays out while she’s Speaker. So far so good, Nancy. You keep dog walking that motherfucker.
  12. Nah. The Republican base is completely wrapped around his fingers. He rules them with an iron fist. They’re terrified of crossing him because they’ll more than likely garner a primary opponent in their next election. Or face his wrath on Twitter. I was naive to think his own party would keep him in check legislatively. Not even a little bit have they quelled this monsters impulsive and wreak-less behavior. If anything, there are those in congress who fan his worst tendencies. It’s a fantasy to think Mueller’s report will be this saving grace and all of sudden get republicans to grasp their pearls. If they haven’t done it by now, nothing is going to turn the tide.
  13. Jesus CHRIST. What a cheap piece of political theater. You’re telling me there wasn’t a single restaurant, catering business, or chef that would’ve gladly obliged to feeding a sports team visiting the White House? And the way he says he had to pay of this on his own. Despicable and disgusting. Every single week it’s a new low.
  14. I wish the democrats would be a little more jubilant with their wins last week. The whining that they didn't run the tables in every race is ridiculous. They were NEVER going to have a blowout election with the cult like mentality Trump supporters. They believe EVERYTHING and ANYTHING he says and will vote for whomever he tells them to vote for even if it means voting against their own personal interests. I get the losses in Florida, Georgia, and Texas were quite painful. I was pretty disappointed that Stacey Abrams, Beto O'Rourke, and Andrew Gillum lost. But taking back the house by almost 40 seats and winning back 7 governorship's is nothing to sulk about. Plus, Dem's are sending over ONE HUNDRED WOMEN to the U.S House. That's HUGE. On top of the diversity that was elected and the ballot proposals that won, I'm cautiously optimistic that maybe, JUST MAYBE, he can be defeated in 2 years. Plus, how glorious it will be to see Nancy Pelosi sitting directly behind that piece of shit during the next State of The Union address in January.
  15. We have a sitting U.S President that's calling a porn star he allegedly had an affair with, Horseface, on Twitter. Let that sink in for a second.
  16. He did. He sounded like a modern day Trumpian Republican and was giving a performance aimed at ONE crowd and one crowd only: Fox News and Trump himself. And he succeeded in a spectacular fashion. After this pitiful, whiny, performance, what happened? Every single MAN on that judiciary committee RUSHED to his side. Defended him. Lashed out at the Democrats. Screamed and stomped their feet. He set the tone and they fell in line. It was a disgusting display of patriarchal domination and white male rage that will probably get him on the Supreme Court. They WANT him on the Court now more than ever. Because he will have an ax to grind. He will move so far to the right on ANY and EVERY progressive cause brought before him. It's a horrifying prospect.
  17. He's a beautiful human being. The attacks on him are absolutely disgraceful. I never in my life thought I'd witness such outward racism towards someone that's played out on a national stage. That's PERPETUATED and ENCOURAGED by a sitting U.S President. I hang my head in shame lower and lower every day with what is going on in this country.
  18. It was also predicted that Hillary was going to win. We all know how accurate that was.
  19. Trust me, the majority of us are embarrassed beyond words at the state of our country. And I don't see a way out of this mess any time soon. Impeaching Trump or voting him out in 2020 won't solve anything. This political tribalism on the right that encourages and promotes racism, sexism, and nationalism is going to be with us long after he's gone. I always said that electing him would open up a Pandora's Box of bullshit that we wouldn't be able to stomp out for at least a generation. It's worse than I ever imagined.
  20. Oh you should see my social media feed. It’s simply incredible how upset people are over this. The blatant racism coming from people I’ve known for years is breathtaking.
  21. This all started about 2 years ago when he would kneel during the playing of the our National Anthem at the beginning of football games. He was taking a knee in silent protest of racial injustice and the innocent killing of black men and woman by white cops during petty traffic stops. It really wasn't that big of a controversy until our Racist In Chief began tweeting about it 24/7 and screaming about it at his authoritarian rallies in PoDunk America. Then he, Fox News, and his minions began saying he was 'protesting the flag and OUR TROOPS'. Which is a blatant lie. But it worked. Middle America was APPALLED AND AGHAST that a bunch of BLACK football players wouldn't just SHUT THE FUCK UP and throw the ball. How DARE they take a knee in silent protest while our National Anthem is being played! So now Nike picked him to represent the Just Do It 30th anniversary campaign and all hell has broke lose again. It's one of the most unbelievable displays of fake outrage I've ever seen. You have these fucktards literally burning, cutting, destroying, and ripping up their Nike clothing in protest. Merchandise that's already bought and paid for. AND they're giving Nike a shit ton of free publicity. It's a funny thing to watch. Maybe instead, these pro-flag, pro anthem, pro-troop, pro-America TRUE AMERICANS could, oh I don't know, maybe donate their Nike gear to the poor, homeless veterans they pretend to care so deeply about.
  22. The disrespect Trump has shown McCain and his family is disgusting even for him. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. But every now and again he manages to lower the bar to a level I never thought was humanly possible.
  23. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/powerpost/john-mccain-war-hero-and-maverick-republican-dead-at-age-81/2018/08/25/3234889c-a878-11e8-97ce-cc9042272f07_story.html John McCain died. Tragic. I didn’t agree with him politically but he was truly a kind, generous, civil man. Never deserved the vile treatment from Trump.
  24. Of course I’m in the category that believes it’s a huge deal. It’s an unprecedented situation. And in a functioning democracy with a functioning national press, impeachment papers may very well start being drafted. I was more or less speaking from the point of view of a Trump supporter when I was asking if it were a “big deal”. Because it’s prerty obvious his “base” doesn’t think it is. NOTHING is a big deal to them. And that’s what is so terrifying to me. There’s blatant criminal activity in front of their faces, and they’re still more concerned about those illegals pouring across the border
