At least I think Clinton's extra marital affairs were consensual. 

Juanita Broaddrick claims rape, and Paula Jones claims indecent exposure. There is not much to support either claim, but they are claims of non-consensual actions. Of course there are several other claims of "adultery" but yes consensual.

Yeah, how much damage can a person do? It's not like it's an important job.

Exactly. Anyone can make mistakes. That's why pencils have erasers...

Probably not but it doesn't negate the fact that Trump is emotioanlly unbalanced to be in charge of running a country. No one knows what he stands for and he is clearly not fit in decision making judging by his records for the last three weeks and goes into tantrums on twitter with everyone who disagrees with him...

He stands for incompetence and white privilege.  Didn't have to be qualified, didn't have to be intelligent, didn't have to do anything except be white,pale male and politically incorrect.  That is it.  The fact that his detractor cannot see that boggles my mind.

Sounds like a positive, in general. But yes, seems like being the POTUS takes its toll. As President Donald Trump famously said, "This office is so powerful, you need God even more."

No, his parents living long is a negative for those who don't want him in office.

Based on all previous 44 presidents, President Trump fits right in.   All he needs is a bigger overcoat, top hat, and cigars.

Cheapens the actual Holocaust.

Folks can't imagine how evil a place like Treblinka REALLY was, it seems.

So they make-up stuff. Trump must be like Treblinka.

Meanwhile, they'd s--- their pants if their train pulled-up to the pleasant looking Treblinka station*. No waiting...just through the ol' gates....while the string quartet played.

* Made to look like a transfer train station.

So what did Obama do to qualify for president? Community organizer? Oh right. He's was a black man with good public speaking skills. BTW there is no "white privilege" - only "wealth privilege" . Obama and Trump are both "privileged".

He actually was elected by a majority of the voters for starters.

So? That is irrelevant. The system in the US balances individual and state representation. States all have an equal number of senators and two extra electoral college votes. This means that if someone wants to be elected president they have to appeal that extends beyond the heavily populated urban states.

That's correct, and it (the EC) is highly gerrymandered. They ought to dump it.

That word does not think what you think it means. The EC is set up the way the founders thought it should be because the founders believed that state representation matters. That has nothing to with "gerrymandering". To all of the people whinging about the EC: why aren't you complaining about the senate too?

Agreed...."gerrymandering" has nothing to do with the EC.

The founding fathers are long gone by now. State legislatures have redrawn many district boundaries and they are a partisan bunch and effect the numbers of EC reps. per state. Kind of like instead of the voters picking their reps., the reps. pick their voters. That's gerrymandering, plain and simple.

Constitutional Law professor for 12 years at one of the top law schools in the world and most prestigious US law school, national senator, state senator, ran for congress, author of 2 top selling books, 2 decades in public service, Harvard Law grad with an expertise in Constitutional law, president of the harvard law review (probably the most prestigious role a Harvard student can get),  ivy league undergrad degree in politics, worked in several highly regarded law firms, community organizer and yes great public speaker.

 

Trump is the exemplar of white privilege.  His only qualifications was his skin color.  If he was red, yellow, brown, any other skin color, he couldn't be elected.

Trump supporters are such bad losers...Nevermind being a publc speaker Trump cannot even control himself....As a businessman he should have remained a businessman. Being a president requires a different calibre of a person and it doesn't come in colour....

Trump won and Hillary's supporters continue to riot in the streets. Others complain on message boards.

Trump = billionaire and management of a large company making payroll and being able to articulate his way into the White House.

theres no such thing as white privelege only good decision privelege.  

But please continue being racist to white people.  As you were.

Achtung! Achtung!

Herr Oberführer Donald Duck in action:

Quote

 

From New York to Los Angeles, a series of immigration arrests this week have unleashed waves of fear and uncertainty across immigrant communities.
"There are people that I work with who essentially want to go dark," said Cesar Vargas, one of the first immigrants without legal status in New York state to be sworn in as a lawyer. 
"They don't want to be public in any way whatsoever. They spend less time on the street. They go to work and go straight back home. They don't go on Facebook. They put curfews on themselves."

Make America unsafe again, make America hateful again. Well done Trump carry on Ducking....

And this makes him qualified for managing an organization with a trillion dollar budget?  Sorry. It does not. Running a billion dollar company is certainly a better qualification. Obama was white he would be indistinguishable from Clinton and would never have gotten the nomination. So you can say he got his position because of his skin colour. Trump, OTOH, could have been elected with his anti-immigration platform no matter what his race. 

BTW: a degree from Harvard is perhaps the best example of "wealth privilege" that you could find. The only reason so much status is conferred on Americans who graduate from ivy league schools is that status is what the wealthy need to protect their privilege for the children. If Americans wanted to do something about social mobility and "wealth privilege" (the real issue) they could start by changing their attitude toward graduates of schools whose main claim to fame is it costs huge sums of money to attend.

President Trump cannot be impeached for legally deporting illegal immigrants. 

President Obama deported more that 2,000,000 illegals.

Illegals who have committed crimes in the U.S. should have been deported a long time ago.
