America under President Trump

Recommended Posts

It's hard to debate with people who create their own reality. It's easy to refute them (apparently all you have to do is ask them what specifically they are talking about), but it sort of feels like a waste of time.

They may get their ideas of political debate from watching cable TV news and aren't used to the experience of real debate.

Same goes for people listening to news from the ideological far left. You cannot reasonably claim that there is a media campaign with an agenda to influence people's beliefs, unless you agree it is happening equally on both sides. To say that Trump provides a media attraction is fair enough, but saying it in isolation is biased. Unless you talk about both in a larger context of what it means, it is a futile and pointless statement that contributes to the same noise.

Pointing out the bias or hypocrisy of someone's views, whether they be intentional or simply naive, is never a waste of time.

Unless we all agree that hypocrisy is entrenched in the system

The media creates their own reality, hence the over 90% negative coverage of Trump. The media is not as equally in the bag for Republicans as they are for the Democrats, they gave Obama the kid glove treatment as their media darling and it's non-stop negative Trump coverage 24/7.

Not surprising though, as the media is over 80% Democrats, obvious left leaning bias is obvious.

I guess there's a contingent of people who read Mother Jones but not really even worth mentioning.

Agreed...and the conflict pre-dates Trump by many, many years.  

But I have to remember that a lot of people don't have a historical context or perspective beyond what their social media apps tell them for "likes".

President Trump wins again...the attempted coup by 2016 election losers has failed miserably.   The Trump haters invested so much of their hope into Mueller's investigation, but it was a "nothingburger" after all...today they are mad as hell...again.

 

Quote

The U.S. Justice Department said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation did not find evidence that President Donald Trump's campaign "conspired or co-ordinated" with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. Mueller also investigated whether Trump obstructed justice, but did not come to a definitive answer.

His first 100 days will be a flurry of activities to implement most of the policies he'd promised. Here's an excerpt from a lengthy article how he says it would look:

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/05/us/politics/donald-trump-president.html?_r=0

"I know people aren’t sure right now what a President Trump will be like,” he said. “But things will be fine.

I’m not running for president to make things unstable for the country.”

....and I think he will indeed do things that'll be best for the USA.

Well I mean, when he becomes President, this guy will practically have everything - including the prestige of

being President, right?

If he's an egoist (as they say he is)........of course he'd want to go down in history not just as another US President........

..........but as, the best President the USA had ever had!

He'll most likely work on that. That will be his ultimate goal!

Well, it looks like Trump is off the hook for collusion with the Russians which everyone knew did not happen, even Mueller, that there was no bogeyman there. But yet they had to try and in the process blow approx. 30 million tax dollars and all for nothing. No one convicted for collusion. But will it end there? Apparently not as the demoncrats are still going to fight the fight and they hopefully believe that they will get something on Trump before the next election in 2020 the bunch of lost buffoons. If these democrats are supposed to be a decent and moral political party and not sore losers they would stop it right now with their shenanigans. But we know that they won't and I hope that they won't either. The more they play this stupid childish game the more they will be disliked for their stupid leftist efforts and that should let Trump slide up the polls and win the next election in 2020. So far the last I heard was that it looks like Trump could win in a land slide. One can only hope and pray that will happen. Go, Trump, go.

Dems, by right, must now commit political sepuku if they want any hope of saving their honour. Otherwise they should be beheaded and die as cowards.

Trump wins...again.   It never gets old....

Attorney Michael Avenatti, who seized the spotlight last year as a lawyer for former adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, was arrested Monday and charged with attempting to extort more than $20 million from Nike Inc., as well as bank fraud in a separate case.

Any reasonable person could see that, but these people had this guy as their hero. Even considered running him for president.

Avenatti's actions on potential presidential run speak louder than his words

Yes indeed, Obama and Billy Bob Clinton sure did fit that profile of past presidents who were complete morons as presidents. Hillary would have even been worse than a moron if she had become the president. Just saying. :D

All those poor leftist liberal/democratic losers out there are now really licking their wounds today and rightly so. The leftist liberal media sure did make an ass of themselves and their Joe and Mary six pack followers by their constantly repeating that Trump will be impeached. There was no doubt about it, Trump is gone. The left in America really and truly have gone bonkers and berserk. What they should all be doing now is to seek out medical help. Gawd knows they need medical help. Fast. Trump once again has kicked their azzes. :lol:

Great video post. The democrats still keep denying that there is no illegal smuggling crisis going on at the border. Why do they keep talking like a bunch of idiots and fools all the time? Gawd help America if those brain dead fools win the election in 2020. But as usual Trump is always right on. Trump is the man. :)

So you'd like to vote for a narcissistic moron who brags about sexually assaulting women, can't speak without reading (poorly) from a cue card, and lies constantly. What's his count uop to now, well over 8k I think, and increasing rapidly in the wake of the Mueller report.

I wonder how many more incidents like that go on each and every week?  But there is no real crisis on the border just yet according to the democrats.

Trump just kicked the chit out of the demoncrats and the leftist liberal media for all of their lies and bull chit that they said about Trump and Russian collusion. Keep trying to make Trump look bad. It's not working for you nor the demoncrats. And do not believe and think for a moment that Obama was wearing a nice and bright halo around his head all the time while he was President. Obama committed just as many sins and lies if not more than what Trump could ever match. We all know dam well that Obama told plenty of lies. After all he is a democrat.

You are talking about what Trump did and said before becoming President. What has Trump said or done that has hurt you so far? Hurt your feelings maybe? Pray tell, will you?
