Man, to go off like that he must've really been frosted. Get it . . . a Frosted Flake? (crickets)


And if he was from Iowa?

No thank you for your service up to now though, huh? Didn't he already do his part? But he questioned Trump so I guess you lot have to demean him in any way. Even twisting his good words to seem bad.


Twist his words? How about you explain that one.


Easy. What he said was true BUT it's put forth that he doesn't know history on this. So what? Doesn't change the fact that this administration is FoS. That last acronym was my word.


Oh, you must think I wrote the OP. no. I just made one comment, and it was that quitting won't fix things. If he was just not going to run, he wouldn't have made such a passionate speech. That was quitting. Unless it was just drama, but he sounded pretty sincere.

Today I heard the term "emotional sustenance". That's the symbiotic relationship between Trump and his kool-aid drinkers. They feed off of each other. They give each other a platform to air all their social angst and fear of being irrelevant. In other words, their sucking each other's loosh.
And loving it.

I didn't think any such thing. Go back to the last page. YOU went at me. But in Trump style you'll probably believe I was picking on you.


and it was that quitting won't fix things. If he was just not going to run, he wouldn't have made such a passionate speech. That was quitting. Unless it was just drama, but he sounded pretty sincere.


It needed to be said. Like I said no one knows why he isn't running again. At least he got it out before he can be called a "has been".

But we on the Left get it, snowflake, you've all been drowning in your self-imposed victim status for eight years and you elected an asshole because he said he loved you. He's here to punish the rest of the country for your undeserved butthurt. You beseech him to make people perform public demonstrations of patriotism so you don't get triggered. You cry for Daddy Drumpf to save the statues your ideological forebears littered public spaces with to assert their political and social dominance.

So why argue now that he doesn't exhibit the very traits you found appealing him in?


seen enough vapidness where persepctive among left leaning


So you decided to elect a President who is both ignorant and to unconcerned to be bothered learning? Lmao.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus... I thought when Trump was elected you crybullies would move past your angst. But no, now you're trying to shove your cult leader down our throats and you won't be satisfied until you think we're showing him the respect he doesn't deserve, the respect you never bring yourselves to show presidents you oppose.

You got what you wanted. You elected some jackass the rest of us can't stand. So why not stop trying to act like he's something else?


Pisses and moans about loss of civility in politics
Becomes first in thread to directly sling insults.

Keep it up, your anguish sustains me in the same manner as my taxes sustain you.


Embrace your inner deplorable bud, yea dude rants all day about how people are mean to trump, then tries to make fun of people on the left lol.

Grow a pair bud lol.

Okee-dokey!

I think we can call the time of death for civility in politics at 5:03 PM on Wednesday, October 25th, 2017.

Call the coroner!

You literally just described how a representative republic's political system works. I mean it's absolutely the textbook description of why politicians do what they do and why their supporters support them. Can you possibly provide any example of a politician (who hasn't been immediately voted or ran out of office) who hasn't participated in the same over the past 200 years of this nation's existence?

Trump fans scream at the sky regularly. They just do it in rally form with their cult leader presiding over the colllective-bleating ceremony.

Probably, but you're not going to find "social angst" or "fear of irrelevance" with any of them. You guys own that sh!t.

You're talking to the wrong liberal. I'm of the smug variety that think we're better than everyone else.

Apologies for using the broad brush. Classic portrait BTW -

Pure hypocrisy...if Flake believed anything he read off of the speech someone wrote for him (probably McCain), he would be packing his office up this week. The fact he’s staying until 2019 makes him a hypocrite of the highsest order...
