    I'm not a big fan of Trump and did not vote for him, but he's your president. He might even win the next election if everyone keeps up all the butthurt about him being president. For him, there's no such thing as bad publicity. Good or bad, he loves the attention. He's a pompous, narcissistic character and thrives off of every single piece of praise and butthurt criticism you put out there. He purposely says outlandish shit so that at least a few of you (the majority of you by the looks of this comment section) lose your mind all over social media, the TVclip comment section, and in real life so you look like just as much of a fucking clown as he does.
    Just trying to prevent you from losing the next election..........


    Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert say there is no National Emergency for the rich, which is true in Beverly Hills, Malibu, Palisades. πŸ‘‰Compton, East Los Angeles, Bronx, Chicago East side, DEAL WITH IT !

    If it turns out all of our fears are true,Trump is found to have been knowingly and willingly working for the Russians as a Spy, could we legally prosecute those who placed the "βœ”" on the ballet, putting him in the oval office? It seems unforgivable. History books are watching us. These individuals disrespect the U.S.A. They disrespect the media, they Disrespect American politicians in general (95% of the "Right" side of the house) Disrespect Christianity and they disrespect the founders of this country along with all of us. Disturbing. If it all falls apart over this what needs to be done to prevent the rich and strong from influencing the minds of the poor and weak citizens in a democracy setting?? How could this have been prevented in a democracy??? Why is it taking so long for some serious, political or military intervention for them to save face? Where will all the partyless Republicans go?

    The Irony, is that for the last two decades, the general American
    sentiment was finally starting to come around a humbler self recognition
    and scrutiny of a more objective truth, and began talking about the
    immense harm our government has caused countries like Libya, Granada,
    Iraq, Sudan, Afghanistan supposedly against and contradicting our actual
    preference for our country, but when a President finally shows up
    seeking to disengage us from confrontation already in two places, North
    Korea and Syria, instead of helping and supporting, we ourselves start
    acting like hidden war mongrels pushing behind a meaningless facade of
    policy attacks. What was CNN expecting from ISIS? A "So long and thank
    you card" ??
    The collective hysteria the country is submerged in and mindless
    unanimity of all medias and voices against our President, makes it
    obvious that what is happening to America regarding this, is actually a
    sociological crisis of collective cultural psychological nature that has
    been building up for decades, now capitulating in this event that
    should best be defined as a social copy cat cultural syndrome collapse,
    and not one of individual political intelligence and serious analysis
    regarding our President, which should have us instead debating his
    contrasting unorthodox unpolished style, political aims and policies,
    and the pro's and con's of it. Instead this has become sheer high school
    hysteria, already boarding its way into Congress. Thanks for the
    contribution CNN, and the rest ! ;-)

    Trumptards are primarily senior citizens from the Baby Boomer generation. A generation that caused the most social strife in the country, raided the social security system, allowed the exodus of American jobs, and got us 22T in debt.
    It's no coincidence that we are polarized as a nation again. They cause the same thing in the 60's. They can't get along. This is their last effort to set the country ablaze again. All those drugs from the 60's warped their brains, which is why they are so easily manipulated by conspiracy theories.
    Thank God they are dying off. Their legacy is worthless. They're nothing like the Greatest WW2 generation, which was the best we ever had.
