The same negative relationship his whole career, you say? Well, that's certainly strange, since I can not remember him ever being called a racist by the media, seriously, not EVER, before he run for president and Hillary Clinton's lapdogs in the MSM were ordered to start yapping. (Much like they sabotaged and spew out hit jobs on Bernie Sanders, by the way. WaPo still holds the record with 16 hit jobs on Bernie during 16 hours the day before a primary, yap, yap, yap!)

Anyway, it is very weird indeed how the media didn't think Trump was a racist and stuff before this president thingy began...


See, I remember the same thing. I want to defend Trump on this point... for most of his life he was definitely no racist. However, that is not how he's acted as President. You can excuse it as him just pandering to his base, but his actions and rhetoric since the campaign trail have been very racist. From promoting the Blacks for Trump guy (I might write a thread about this guy later tonight actually), to his reactions to Charlottesville vs Puerto Rico. His comments about hispanics and especially Mexicans. And a lot of random symbols... he even talked about what a great guy David Duke is.

Maybe Trump isn't a racist. I certainly don't think politicians believe 100% of the things they do, I think the opposite and that most of it is show for the voters. But even if we excuse Trump with that line of thinking, we're left with the reality that Trump built a significant portion of his base from a bunch of racists.


I am not defending Trump at all, just pointing out that it is simply not true that he has had a negative relationship with the press through his whole career. Fact is that most of the MSM has been and still is firmly in the Hillary Clinton camp, and I know this very well since I have witnessed the way "journalists" and "news" outlets has treated not only Trump but also Bernie Sanders.

Bernie is not mentioned often here at ATS, by the way, it's mostly "Hillbots" versus "Trumptards" having grand food fights, hahaha. I for one like to remind people that Bernie still exists, he is very much still on the political arena, and there are many, many Berners like me out there hoping he will run again. As an Independent or leader of a new political party, that is, no doubt the revolting vermin in the DNC and the corrupt establishment Dems will screw him and all his supporters over again if they get the chance.

Also want to mention that I really don't buy the claim that a "significant portion" of Trump's base are racists, I think this is just another narrative and smear tactic created by the yapping Clinton lapdogs in the media, just like the bizarre narrative that "BernieBros" are sexist woman haters for not supporting HRC. The vast majority of Trump supporters are just ordinary, struggling people - of all colors - who are sick and tired of getting screwed over by the rich and powerful and sick and tired of the Dems after 8 years with the big disappointment called Obama who frankly turned out be just a another 1 % bubble slimeball - and war lord, ugh.

Your first post said they were building a case for "impeachment" but then you edited it to say "removal" instead.

Oh really? My first post responding to you (HERE) says it was posted Oct, 11 2017 @ 10:00 PM. And as you know, we can only edit posts within the first 2 hours after their initial posting. After that, we can't touch them (though I think Mods can).

Your first response to that post (HERE) says it was posted on Oct, 12 2017 @ 05:02 AM. That's 7 hours after I made my post, and a full 5 hours after I could no longer edit it.

So how is this claim of yours possible?


So it's not possible that you edited it long before I responded to it? Hahaha right.


Whatever are you going to answer the damn question or just beat around the bush about it.

Yeah really speaks to the critical thinking side of Trump supporters that they would elect Dracula out of sheer anger and that you agree with that. Super thoughtful people. They really know how to weigh things... Nice they're willing to tear apart the country out of anger. Super inspiring. And no matter what anyone else says, that's not a retarded way to make decisions.

please by all means keep it up with the smug insults
what a child
dont get your way and it is"tearing the country apart"
bs
you are nothing more than a bitter sour malcontent

LOL Yeah so according to you, I made a post, you read & memorized it, I edited it, and then 5 hours later you responded to the unedited version of my post without seeing the edited version which had been there for 5 hours. Right...

And why do I have to do research for you? If you want to find info on the various politicians and others that are working on building a case towards impeaching him, do it yourself. the same goes for the numerous politicians and former politicians that have been consistently labeling him dangerous, mentally unfit, incompetent, etc. I already pointed out several times now how that would play into removing him through the 25th Amendment.

By the "approval rating" of those who voted for him, it was never higher than 46%.

People who use the term "Liberal LARPers" are even worse.

Yep. Go all the way back to the 80s. It's not hard to find print and television media outlets engaged in ripping him a new one, nor him deliberately inciting them.

This is sort of what he does. He acts like a complete fool, so the media covers him like he's a complete fool.

The goal is to make Trump look bad? LOL....

He's this total rogue outsider with these amazingly wise ideas like building giant walls around the country and banning Muslims, and attacking the press. He tweets out attacks like a compulsive child and shows a definite degree of personality disorder. He sews division everywhere he goes and is a key voice in tearing the country apart. How can they possibly make him look bad?





HE hasnt banned muslims. If he did then thee would be none here in america. No h ebanned TRAVEL from countries with high pop;ulations of them BUT it was a BLANKET BAN on all people (including non muslims) from said countries.
SO now that the SUpreme court backed it up you are going to go boo hoo and say the system is rigged right?


And when he did, he got residents of Chad confused with the term Chad that incels use.


Well Chad is a bad place to visit so its just as well.

Varying population density has nothing to do with the total number of votes across the country as a whole.

Trump got 46% of that vote, which would indicate that 46% of Americans approved of him as President at that point.

My contention is borne out by the fact that his measured approval rating started out around 46% and has been steadily falling ever since. Five Thirty Eight

Because you are the one that made the claim so the burden of proof is on the proclaimer.

You are living in fantasy land thinking and hoping and praying that there is a big impeachment (or a "removal case" which ever you prefer) case being built against President Trump.

You guys need to get over it, Trump is your president and he is not leaving in any way shape or form (unless he crokes) before his elected term is complete. Except that fact and move forward with your life.

Well, in response to the ban, Chad has withdrawn in fighting Boko Haram. So there's some foreign policy at work, we're now discouraging people from fighting terrorism.

Right you are. I suppose I should have clarified that the Republican's in Congress likely believe that the equivalent electoral vote tally even at the reduced % of support still doesn't warrant going against the president.

Trump won't get impeached. This stuff is just red meat to the loser class that got bullied in high school and now can't afford their own healthcare so they take to their safe space internet all day. There's a whole country outside your basement that knows you fools are the bottom feeders of our society and are tired of subsidizing your failure.

Here's the thing, unless we can bring minimum incomes up enough, and we don't seem to have any interest in doing that. Then even if everyone weren't losers, as you put it, the bottom 30% of wage earners would still be the bottom 30% of wage earners and bringing in just as much money as they do now. Should they simply accept their place in life, die 15-20 years earlier, and suffer from treatable illnesses?

Sounds like someone is protesting a bit too much to me.

I’m sorry you live in your mom’s basement ... or are you upset because she finally threw you out? Sleeping on gramma’s sofa now slick?
