I fully blame individual, corporate & political greed & dishonesty for Trump's election and our possible, resulting demise.  IMO of course.      


I agree whole-heartedly, saworld!  

 

These are the people who vote based on what's in THEIR best interests vs. what's in the nation's best interest.  They're still scratching their heads wondering what the man with the Massachusettes accent meant when he said during his inspiring inauguration speech, "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

 

But the lies coming from the mouth of Trump are so divisive and are tearing the country apart, yet they'll support him to the grave.

Great database, and the disbelievers can even call up the lies before they make fools of themselves by claiming T-Rump was actually telling the truth.

 

On the subject of things Der Trumper believes (because Bannon said so), this condinued undermining of our relations with Europe were front and center as he REFUSED to shake hands with the Prime Minister of Germany and continues to claim Germany "owes" mountains of money to NATO.

 

The string of dots connecting Agent Orange (as he's known to the FSB) and Tsar Vlad the Stumpy are merging into an unbroken line, yet his minions claim it's all sheer coincidence.  That is truly amazing, even for a gaggle who cannot connect the dots between Reagan's tax scam that allowed the ones dividing the pie to keep whatever slice they carve for themselves and the decreasing size of the slice they leave for everyone else.

Der Trumper is told by his handler Ryan's health plan is crapola, so he attacks CBO before they confirm his haldner's report.

 

According to CBO, Ryans abortion will reduce the deficits by $370B over 10 years, compared to the $1,400B 10-year savings under Obamacare.

 

CBO also predicts 19 MILLION FEWER Americans will be able to obtain health insurance under the Ryan scheme.

 

And yet the Trumpettes continue to support the twerp - which probably explains why Ryan also wants to gut funding for education - getting everyone as dumb as the Trumpettes will increase the number of Republican voters.

    The problem with Donald, is that he lies so often, that people lose track of what he promised to do while on the campaign trail.  

    One would consider that the who people say they are loyal supporters of  Donald are not talking about his failure to produce many of his campaign promises.   

 

     When challenged, these people go into immediate Distraction Mode.    

 

      When a Commentator on FOX challenge the Alt-Right  talking points, that is exactly what other members in that group discussion resort to - Distraction.

WELL CENT--

We know that if someone tells enough lies, there are always those people who will believe them. The new phenomenon here is that

--if a deranged liar tells enough lies, people will acutally begin to lie to themselves!!

Ya can't make this kind of crazy up, can ya?

Gee, I miss having a real President!!
