lol you don't think a billionaire businessman who became the first non-politician president in US history, against all odds, is smart enough to distract the media and his detractors?

This is the problem. He's either the luckiest hapless idiot or he's a branding and media genius. There's no middle ground. Being that he's had success in every endeavor for over 30 years, my money is on genius. Remember, even in hard times, regardless of what you think of the tactics he used, trump won.

The guys whole life has been strategy. This is strategy too, I'd bet money on it.

Did you miss the whole wikileaks evidence in which DNC officials spoke to each other on how to manipulate votes, such as counting one hispanic vote (that voted democrat of course) as two, aka double sampling? Or what about the other "illegal activities" the DNC was caught red handed using "trying to influence and change the elections"?

I can't say it was Obama or Hillary, but they did pass the laws that say IDs are not required to vote. It has happened all over the country. Here is just one example of it:

www.foxnews.com...

There are reports of as many as 800,000 voting in California. If you look it up, the evidence is there. By the way, Trump said he is opening an investigation into the supposed voter fraud. Is it true? Who knows, but if it is proven, then what do you say?

But what if russians come over here and start voting for conservative politicians?

My great grandfather stabbed guy in a bar. Gramps was a progressive communist. Political argument. Go figure.

I think most people would agree with this. I am a huge Trump supporter, but I am under no illusion he is a saint of any kind. I just think that he is smart and patriotic, and yes has a huge ego. If he can help the country, even a little, he will be a far better president than Hillary would have been.

...and the previous politicians haven't done that?

I'm literally laughing on this one folks. Let's see what the combover does...shall we?

Unless one of you has a crystal ball and can give me the winning lottery numbers for every major pull through 2025?

Doesn't a law need to be passed by the house and Senate? Haven't they been majority Republican for a while now?

No point, with Obama as President, anything Republicans did would have been vetoed. However, most conservatives have complained about Repub. establishment for this very reason, even if Obama vetoes, that's on him. That's why Trump won over all the establish Repubs, most conservatives don't like them that much either.

Why on earth does he care? He is now the POTUS. Just let it go and make sure it doesn't happen again for the next POTUS.

What is going on here, in my not so humble opinion, is that Trump is not going to allow the "news" folks to go on harping about popular total numbers as a point to him being "illegitimate". At any rate some sort of something in the face of the way this republic is set up, to entice the ignorant to believe pure BS. So Trump goes on the offence by claiming the Dem gains were themselves illegitimate.

Wow this post says it all to the level of lack of astuteness the average american has of their own political thingy. You and many others, even on TV land and sunday morning talk blather don't understand? Trump is going to just use you sort for a mop, the press anyway.

Luckily the left in this country is standing up to fight this incoming monstrosity.

LOL ... and this is why Trump is now your President.

Because the right stood up and voted. Yep. The Republicans were bought-off up one side and down the other ... and here comes Trump. Trump or Hillary = easy choice.

You lefties can stand up and fight all you want. Your party is in that swirly vortex and heading for the pipe.

I can hardly wait 'til Trump weighs in on the soft science BS of evolution. Oops. Now I've poked you in the eye with the pointy end of that stick.

Ahhhhahahahaha!!

Success in every endeavor? didn't he lose a billion in the casino industry..it's like a godamned licence to print money.
Either that or he is a tax cheat.
Speaking of taxes, if he produces them as promised..we can all see what a financial genius he is..he won't release them though. That speaks volumes.

This whole voter fraud issue.

Trump lost the popular vote by how much, 3 million? And now he's crying about how there were 3 million illegal votes?

Doesn't that sounds awfully suspicious to you? But oh no, he doesn't give you proof, he just says it, over and over and over again.


gas·light
ˈɡaslīt/
verb
gerund or present participle: gaslighting
manipulate (someone) by psychological means into questioning their own sanity.


He has no proof, he has no facts, but he'll keep saying it and eventually it'll become the truth. An alternative fact created in order to push another agenda of control. Apparently this time related to who can vote and how hard it's going to be to do that.

Now, I would like to be a supporter of Donald, there are some things he's done that I agree with. Such as the TPP pull out and some of his other economic plans, I'm okay with.

But you can't have this Orwellian double speak, gas-lighting going on at the same time. Mark my words, it'll be used as cover for something very very bad. And with this voter fraud thing in particular, not even the most dishonest of GOP officials is agreeing with him, other than his surrogates and advisers.

Be careful supporters, or soon you'll be under the same spell that Liberals fell under when Obama was elected to bring you hope and change. Turns out for a lot of you it was change you didn't really want.

~Tenth


This has been going on for the last eight years, but the media throws out this term and now suddenly you made a thread. Where were you the last eight years?

I would like to see an audit of 1 states votes. California's. I really believe that there will be millions of fraudulent votes and ballot stuffing . I thought this last election cycle and this one as well before trump said anything. Not sure how to go over the electronic machines. Its been proven that they can be rigged and the program that does it is undetectable. I think we should use paper ballots only. I also think we should vote on saturdays.

Your right. He is.

Side note; its a political mainstay. Assert things are true when they aren't, because people will believe the lie that confirms their own bias

Different dude, same tactic.
