I know I've been trying now for quite some time to remind myself of a mindset of "hate the evil they do and not the person".  Trump was a wealthy businessman, out of the whole political group; I believe that many felt we need someone who is not a career politician and who has become a very wealthy business person.  If he used those "tactics" to get to the top of the materialistic world, than certainly he could bring our country and "me" to the penthouse perhaps was the mindset?  I still say....Mr. President, do your divided country people the respect and show us your taxes!


What people should have done on Trump when he first ran for office is to have looked in some detail on his business, and how he ran it. If they did they would have found out quite a different story. Most of his wealth came from his father. He ran his business as a NY mob is run. NYC learned that fast as they lost 3 million on a hotel deal with him when he ran 2 sets of books. Banks in Atlantic City learned that when he was set to take them all down unless he got a lower loan rate. The little older lady learned that when he made her house worth zero after she would not sell it to him for an AC expansion. Small business man learned that when he refused to pay for what he purchased unless he got more free. Business man went under and killed himself. NJ Casino Control comm learned that when he had daddy buy about 3 million in chips at his casino and hold them so Trump could use the money as a loan. Trump got fined for that. There is a lot more. Cohen told all about Trump and Cohen is typical of who worked for him, and how the business operated.

I just saw that Rep. Jordan on an interview. and he acted in the same manner that he conducted himself at the Cohen hearing. Continuously interrupting and not allowing anyone to complete a sentence and his agenda was.

Trump has saved the economy. unemployment is low. the tax law. no regulations and the  Supreme Court has two guys that apparently he likes and they will act in his behalf.

so. don't let anyone speak, or never answer a question. and only deal with what you know the Followers want to hear.

@aruzinsky 

trump lies constantly, his supporters soak it up as the gospel, and seem to enjoy his lies! Nothing complex about that. A lie, is a lie no matter how one tries to shape it. 

So what is the story with the large  “crybaby button” on your posts?

Is that to remind us, or to remind yourself?

Pay attention to "scripted conniving lies" versus "unscripted impulsive lies."

Yes Cent, a lot of truth. 

Recently on facebook I quoted Elijah Cummings, "We are better than this!"

Conservative response - "Who cares!"

It is going to take a lot on both sides of the aisle to convince people we are and can be better.  Maybe that won't be able to happen until dt's crimes have him removed from politics.  If true that his support comes from those who expect nothing better from a leader, they will not be able to cast a vote for a federal prisoner.  America needs candidates who are not just one step away from prison.

Also, while Cuomo did make valid points, let's not forget his basic point was how to better "get" President Trump.

 

You must have watched a different video,,,,,,his "basic point" was "we can do better" than having a pathological criminal in the White House.  IMO, most would agree.

This seems to reflect very low opinion of fellow Americans and religious people. Or maybe just another case of throwing out the word "racism" when there is nothing logical to say.

 

Bingo!!!! give the man a prize.   I do have a very low respect for many people that do not care about others, that do not respect others because of their race or national origin. and that exhibit religious philosophies that they try to impose on others.

Unfortunately, responders missed a key point - "that's politics". So when getting upset over President Trump, people have to ask themselves, "Compared to who?".

Trump has hit  the buttons that a portion of Americans live by.

Racism. there still a lot of racism alive and well in this country.

All stoked by liberals.

and the fear that they have been seeing about the other races infiltrating their culture is too much for many of them to bear.

I assume you are now talking about Democrats?

The Religious right has done more harm in this country than any other religion or philosophy that I have seen in my lifetime.

What harm have they done?

The need to bring back this country to a completely conservative way of life and laws is much to powerful for these people to care who is trying to put them into effect. They would vote for a monkey if that monkey was able to accomplish any of these things.

We have had several "monkeys" as Presidents and all made promises but none either accomplished many or tried valiantly to accomplish them. This President is trying or doing what he promised his constituents!
