This ignobeler is quite capable and willing to read and comprehend the real world. In that he is able to separate that he says from how he says it and, more importantly, he is able to understand that what he does is more important than his words or tweets.

 

Yes, he had disagreements with staffers but I have no recollection of him ordering them out of a restaurant and then followed after them harassing. Then there is the Bondi disgusting situation as well as those related to Rubio, Nielsen, antifa attacks on free speech. I have seen nothing equatable from Trump. And then we have Waters asking followers to form gangs to harass pols and staffers wherever they may be.

Liberals here are doing the same as the former Soviet Union by spreading unproven innuendo to discredit the United States government.  Their apparent purpose is to bring it down and destroy the nation we have known for several hundred years.

 

Splitting the country into many smaller, weaker ones would mean easy pickings.  Already there are attempts to split regions against region, race against race, etc.  Divide and conquer.  When something is said about 'russian bots' I cannot wonder if they are not at work here.

 

As an example the President cannot even present the Medal of Honor to a widow without criticism. 

 

Shame.

Let's examine Trump's vision for our country

  • Lying to the American public on a daily basis
  • Insulting anyone who disagrees with or criticizes Trump
  • Nobody in the Republican Party is allowed to disagree with Trump
  • No respect for the rule of law
  • Attacking federal judges based upon ethnicity
  • Putting loyalty to Trump above loyalty to the Constitution

Those are your hate filled bumperstickers, not the campaign agenda.

trump (Putin's purchase) fatuously lied when he said he would unite the country by being "president for all" - he never will be able to unite the country...

 

It's clinically fascinating to observe that those who support "Putin's purchase" are now engaging in psychological projection and falsely accusing honest, honorable, and patriotic American citizens of working with Russia - something they are blatantly doing themselves - however - trump supporting quislings should be recognized for faithfully repeating the lies that Russian trolls and bots have been masterfully directing them to tell...

You unwitting agents of the Russian efforts to weaken us as a nation through division either can't or refuse to understand a very basic fact - no one "loves, adores, or worships" the President. We do not have a "hero".

 

The realities are - we had an election, the candidates offered their visions of America and ours aligned more closely to that of President Trump. Additionally, as long as he remains faithful to that which he ran on, we will support - not him - but the agenda we voted into office.

 

Now, that is certainly less emotional than your views of the world but many of us (even country bumpkins) think with our heads. Rather than quivering and quaking in terror or being consumed with hatred, we think and that thinking determines our beliefs and actions.

Did you libs read this part?  Isn't this exactly what I have been telling you for two years now? Nevermind. Whatever. Carry on.

 

Why do YOU defend/excuse trump being uncivil and punching down whenever possible?  Why is THAT OK to you?  You've been ignoring that issue for well over two years now!

I'm not sure what Epster was saying, but he clearly misses the main argument on this issue. Trump demands loyalty to him over the constitution. The last time I checked, that was illegal. In addition, loyalty for Trump is a one way street. 

 

Finally, if one promises loyalty to Trump, you are taking sides with a pathological liar who insults people and ethnic groups routinely. If that isn't bad enough, Trump is also a man who does not respect the rule of law.

 

Yes, I think professing loyalty to Trump definitely reflects a lack of character.
