Trump is doing little to help his supporters. For instance, the healthcare repeal would hit residents in states that supported him the hardest, while giving still another tax cut to the wealthiest.

When he said during the campaign that he wouldn't lose any voters if he shot someone on Fifth Avenue, he wasn't kidding. Hell, if he opened fire on the rally where he said that, his supporters would probably fight to get into the bullets' paths.

The joint Trudeau/Trump press conference earlier this year was a real eye opener. The Canadian PM took questions in both English and French, then answered each questions in both languages, while Trump struggled to get out a single coherent reply.

Interesting, I speak Dutch, German, English, Spanish(my wife) and understand French, Portuguese and Italian, but I'm no president. At all

But I'd vote Trump(vs Clinton) if I was a US citizen. In a heartbeat.

Ah, yet another California dem, hammering a nail into their own party.
'Vexatious my ass' 'I need street cred'
Brad Sherman 7/12/2017


'DEMOCRAT BRAD Sherman of California files article of impeachment against Donald Trump; accuses US president of high crimes and misdemeanour.'


Maxine, Nancy, and now Brad, are some of the best self-destructors available nationwide and they're all in one state! Throw in a crazy Schumer and it's death by NYCAL.

It's a short bus filled with self absorbed elitists whom refuse to listen to forecast data. The old dinosaurs are battling before extinction. Bless their hearts.

You get it. Trump didn't win because he can make an awesome coconut cream cake.

He is a better cook than I am, for sure

Imho the mix of:
-Overpopulation
-Imbalanced migration
- Upcoming Islam in modern civilized countries (because of nr 2)
-Liberal Logic

is generally why I'd vote Trump off course. But what do I know, I'm from NL/EU....
AND Trump is pro 6/8/10/12 cylinder engines.

Seriously, this is your example?

Trump is not a lifelong politician or born into it. He is a street smart businessman that has no prayer of appeasing the folks looking for polished. Sure, he comes across offensive and bumbling. But, I would rather have that and believe that he has our back. I did not have that feeling the last 8 years. .

He is our President and needs to be supported.

Wrong!! In 2016, there were 762 homicides in Chicago alone and 80% of those were black killing black. The really sad part is that Chicago, as bad as it is, has only the 8th highest per capita rate in the U.S.

How many people did white supremacist terrorists kill since 9/11?

Some fun reading:


Liberals believe that...
1) ...it's impossible to come to any sort of reasonable compromise with conservatives on anything, but that we can fix our problems with nations like Iran and North Korea by just sitting down and talking things out.

2) ...they're the most compassionate people in society. Yet, in study after study, you find that conservatives give more of their money to charity than liberals.

3) ...they're not racist despite the fact that they consistently support policies that have been several orders of magnitude more devastating to black Americans than the Ku Klux Klan.

4) ...we've all got to dramatically reduce our carbon footprint to save the planet. Yet, liberals like Al Gore live in big mansions and fly around in private jets while still maintaining their credibility with their fellow environmentalist libs.

5) ...they're the people who are really looking out for women, but they strongly support sexual predators like Bill Clinton and they regularly hurl grotesque sexist insults at feminist role models like Sarah Palin who don't toe-the-liberal-line.

6) ...we definitely need to have higher tax rates in this country. Yet many of Obama's nominees and cabinet members, including the Secretary of the Treasury, don't pay their taxes as is -- and liberals are okay with that.

7) ...guns should be banned! Yet, while they want to take guns out of the hands of law-abiding Americans who live in dangerous neighborhoods, they believe liberal celebrities like Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell should be able to hire armed bodyguards.

8) ...they're the ones who really care about educating children; yet time and time again, they support policies that hurt our kids, but help their political allies in the teachers’ unions.

9) ...running deficits are bad! After all, liberals ceaselessly took credit for the budget being balanced during the Clinton years and attack Bush for his profligate spending, right? Yet, despite the fact that Obama is running an unsustainable deficit so large that it threatens the future of the country, liberals are perfectly fine with it.

10) ...college campuses are supposed to be places of learning and intellectual openness, but they approve of conservative speakers being attacked and shouted down.

11) ...they're gay-friendly even as they work to out gay Republicans and they often accuse the Republicans they hate the most of secretly being gay.

12) ...they're the ones who are champions of free speech, but liberals want to silence their most effective critics on talk radio via the Fairness Doctrine.

13) ...they're the ones who really want to stick to the Constitution. Yet, liberals buy into a "living Constitution," which is nothing more in practice than substituting your personal opinion for what's actually in the Constitution.

14) ...it was terrible for George Bush to detain terrorists indefinitely, to use extraordinary rendition to send them to other nations, and to withhold more photos of what happened at Abu Ghraib -- but, when Obama did the exact same things, few liberals had anything to say about it.

15) ...we have to move away from sources of energy like oil, coal, and nuclear power towards what they believe are more eco-friendly power sources like wind power. Yet, whenever anyone tries to build a wind turbine, it's almost always a liberal that attempts to stop it -- just as Ted Kennedy did because he was afraid his yachting view might be spoiled if the ideas he championed were put into practice.

16) ...they're courageous for speaking out against Republicans while Hollywood and the media cheer them on, but when the time comes to speak out against the abuses of radical Muslims, they're terrified into silence.

17) ...when someone despises America, we need to ask, "What have we done to make him hate us?" -- but, when someone despises liberals for what they're doing to the country, they conclude that person must be ignorant, bigoted, or evil.

18) ...it's morally abhorrent to put a serial killer to death, but that a mother killing her baby via abortion is merely a "choice."

19) ...we have to count every vote, except for members of the military serving overseas, most of whom are denied their right to vote because Democratic politicians deliberately delay in sending out their ballots until it's too late for them to be returned in time.

20) ...when they looked at information from our intelligence agencies and concluded that Saddam Hussein had WMDs, they were just mistaken -- but when George Bush looked at the same info and drew the same conclusion, he was lying.

But..... somehow he's been able to become a billionaire 10 times over by running a successful national and international real estate business. And he apparently spoke English well enough to get elected US President. Meanwhile Trudeau is president of a bilingual country....

Hummmm...

Uh.... that's probably because Trump's constituents (that means the people who elected him, and he represents) speak English. He has no need whatsoever to speak French.

It's for irony's sake for the worst offenders. UglyBastard is a big offender when it comes to name calling. Now look at him get all worked up because I've thrown it back at him. If I really believed that all conservatives were conservitards I would be using that term all over the place, but I don't. But believe what you want to believe. If you think I'm being hypocritical so be it. Its a small price to pay to watch him get all worked up.
Worked up from you? I am name calling? Ugly Bastard
You are so butthurt over liberals it's funny.
Go find that guy who keyed you at Kmart and tell me about butthurt :

Maybe your personality had to do with that one. Karma is a bitch
It was gravel upkick from the monster power I put down, but thanks for asking.

The msm will blare about trump attorneys harshly worded email exchange with a private citizen. This guy sends an email telling kasowitz (sp) to resign. Kasowitz goes postal on the guy...i think he had been drinking, after reading the exchange.

Big woop.
