Trump is Trump. He's slumlord evictor and corporate raider. This is your president.

Donald Trump was a nightmare landlord in the 1980s


To succeed, Trump played rough, according to lawsuits filed by the tenants. Renters said he cut heat and hot water, and he imposed tough building rules. Trump even proposed sheltering homeless people in the building.

money.cnn.com...

he wanted to shelter homeless people.
the monster


Yeah, when i read that I just had to click away. Then I remembered: its CNNMoney. That explains it.

Anyone see that DNC candidate a couple days ago



One candidate declared at a forum Monday that white people need to “shut our mouths” and that her job is to “shut other white people down.” “I’m a white woman, I don’t get it,” Sally Boynton Brown, Idaho Democratic Party executive director, told an applauding crowd at the Democracy in Color forum in Washington, D.C.


Doubling down.

or how about headline


Madeleine Albright 'ready to join Muslim registry'


People are becoming delusional.

Feminist are partnering up with muslims(see womens march), Insane.

Goodbye democrats, I welcome unionist.

Since the democratic candidate did poll greater numbers nationally than the GOP candidate, though ultimately meaningless, it would seem to indicate that the Democratic party is hardly being killed.

IMHO, they should be swinging a bit more centrist, then Dems like myself might actually vote Democratic. But make no mistake, I'm still a democrat.

Your non-emotive look forgot to mention that Roosevelt, who in a rather delicious fit of irony was the US President during that very same time period of your thinly-veiled "Trump is literally Hitler" reference, holds the record with 3,522 EOs. Even Obama's combined total for Executive Orders and Presidential Memoranda was a mere 710.


Your non emotive reply conveniently edited out this that I also said in that post;


I think we can't do a proper analysis of his tenure until he has done his first 100 days.


He is less than 7 days into his tenure...... Therefore EO comparison against former president's entire time in office is utterly pointless.

I think the DNC needs to pull up some of those planks supporting liberalism, and replace them with planks supporting labor. If they would have sung the song of "we have a plan to put you to work" instead of "we have a plan to put you on the dole", it would have resonated with more rural voters and created opportunities for Hillary (even though she is disliked severaly in rural america).

Since 2008 its been all about jobs. And I think that despite Obama's lip service, people are standing there realizing that even if they have a job, the buying power of their labor has become depressingly miniscule.

This wasn't even the most galvinizing race we will see, I don't think. About 130mil voted, which is about 25 mil more than the last couple elections. And maybe 30 mil more than either Bush election. (if memory serves, anyway). So it drove higher turnouts....but I think that if Trump blows it, we'll see closer to 150mil showing up to vote. And whoever speaks clearest on Labor will win.

Relda and Annee we "get" your unhappiness, but most people move on and try to find something good.
Give it a try.


Understand I am a realist.

I might want to live in a Bernie world, but I'm not delusional that anything like that's gonna happen in my lifetime.

I see Trump for exactly who he is. I have a brother that's very much like him. My brother and I are like water and oil. I've always been my own person. I was never "under my brother's spell" like so many were. It frustrated the hell out of him.

My three main issues:

1. Equal Rights/Equal Treatment.
2. Separation of church and state.
3. Advancement in Science.

I don't see me accepting Trump any time soon.

Trump's standards are not my standards.

Trump is not used to playing by the rules.

Let's see how far he gets.

I agree for the most part. Chomsky just wrote an interesting article about how Bernie could have won if the DNC hadn't black balled him.

Republicans don't get that they weren't the winners of this election, Trump was, so they better get in line behind him if they expect to win in two years. Democrats are so lost in their identity politics whining about stuff that is low-priority to the majority of Americans...


All this is poor analysis of all involved. Trump, republicans, their relationship to Trump and the party, the voters. Even this assessment of the Dems is very weak and underestimating. In fact it looks rather purposely an obfuscation of the reality most of us understand about Trump, and an offering up an obvious characterization of the Dems to draw in the unwary.

I think after Trumps four years people will want to have a calmer society again. But I think the Republicans will win the next election, because Trump will succeed in getting things rolling better again. I don't think Trump will run the second term though, I think he just wants to make his name in history. I think he will keep on trying too, not just sit around and vacation. Has Trump ever taken a real vacation?

Bernie was a one-trick pony, bashing the 1% (though not a bad pony to ride). He had nothing to offer on terrorism, foreign policy, immigration/refugees, Obamacare, etc. He would have been exposed in a general election, rather than just being asked liberal questions like during the primaries.

You must be kidding. He was the only real clown in the election. All this talk now is just bull snowing. He was just on the ticket to draw in the real socialist utopians, keep them in the party, promise to pay off the student loans ect.

Yeah...a very very low standard

Changing his mind over and over like the 20 percent tariff is from doing things thoughtless.

That's NOT a high standard of actions

Hard to say, really.

He would have appealed, obviously, to the more leftward of those who voted for she who shall not be named, and those folks so tellingly called "yellow dog" democrats...

...of course, some of those "anyone but she who shall not be named" might have as well.

I wouldn't have. Many of the issues I had with "her", I had with Sanders...aside from thinking she was a vile, loathsome creature from the deepest pits of Hell issues. I didn't think he was that, I just didn't like some of the things he said.

But it's impossible to know... The fact that the DNC made sure it didn't happen is the bad thing. ...and they're reaping what they've sown. ...I've already told that to my local Democratic muckity-mucks. They didn't much appreciate it. My reply was, I didn't much appreciate the games played against Sanders and the other democratic candidates, either. So we're even. I might have thrown in asshole there somewhere, too...I was a tad bit incensed.

The state meetings in the next few months are going to be interesting, indeed.

Coming from someone who is a minority and am mostly a socialist and thus far left on many of my beliefs throughout my life, I'd like to inform you that you are complete wrong, the left is so full of hate and vitriol, and doubling down in it, that you're pushing all the decent rational peaceful honestly caring people away. Not only is the left doing that they are doubling down on defending the worst of us, like Hillary Clinton who by herself alienated a good chunk of us.

On top of that most of the lefts "defense" of us has become finding the craziest members of our minorities that represent damn near none of us and broadcast their absurdities, and take it too far, rewarding the worst of us, and ignoring the true injustices by bogging them down with frivolous extreme law suits over minor #.

The left riots and burns things down, and screams in our names, they take up causes most of us think is absurd. They do little to admonish the violent protests in our name, in fact many of you spearhead them. Rather than seek allies and understand, the left simply screams at people and calls them names like that's ever been effective.

The left has gone completely off the rails, and you all have stopped being a source of help for anybody who actually needs it. Instead you take up the cause of attention seekers and psychopaths who's only real goal is to profit from, create division, and gain attention for their overly dramatic deviant self absorbed asses.

Stop #ing screaming at everyone and calling everyone every derogatory name in the book, stop making excuses for violent criminal rioters and help combat them instead of enabling them, and stop supporting crony capitalists as our #ing leaders. Stop finding the craziest most attention seeking members from our community that don't really represent us, and turning them into poster children to represent us, and stop championing the "two arms and a leg for an eye" version of justice we have been where the punishment is massively unjust when compared to the crime.

Thoughtless proposals done on impulse is a standard of excellence?
Or a standard of impulsive immaturity?

SOURCE

20 percent tariff?

even the dope would go up!



White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters on Air Force One Thursday that Trump was backing the proposal and had just discussed it with congressional Republicans in a private meeting.
Hours later, amid an uproar from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, Spicer said that he was simply putting forward one idea Trump is considering to show how the administration could fund the multibillion-dollar construction of a wall on the US's southern border. Spicer repeatedly said the White House was aiming to be "illustrative" rather than "prescriptive" as he walked back the more definitive comments he made earlier Thursday.
