I learned 3 things this year.
1. Trump really is an outsider hated by the establishment.
2. Republicans in congress are no different than democrats.
3. If you're a fat man dressing as Black Widow for Halloween, always remember that the Russian accent sells it.
1. Trump can BARLEY read and is LIKELY illiterate

I guess you are against draft dogers and anti war protests.....
Its not like most people in the country were happy to be at war with Vietnam or even believed the lies coming from DC. Trump like most Americans tried to avoid killing peasant farmers in the name of the US gov.

When does the party end and the work begin? Sure, be happy your guy won, or in my case, the woman who I shall not name, lost.
I don't like Trump. I've never, ever made a secret of that. But he won. I got over it a few days after the election. Cool. Now comes the time to get things done.
What I'm seeing is this--feel free to disagree, if you want--I see a year of gloating, never a pleasant thing to witness. Or, I see useless pandering to the fringe beliefs of the party out of power. Instead of that party, which is my party by the way, sitting down and asking "Perhaps we got something wrong." I see them doubling down on what lost them the elections. Not just the Oval Office, but Senate seats, seats in the House, Governors mansions, and state houses.
One side needs to stop gloating, it really isn't a flattering look, folks...
The other needs to stop acting like the winner is the second coming of Hitler...he isn't, people. Grow the # up, seriously.
Y'all can continue on with the nonsense, and wonder, further down the road, what the Hell happened. Because politics are cycles. I can remember when it would have been unheard of for the GOP to control the House--the Senate, maybe--but never for long--but the House? Never.
Now, the GOP needs to shut it, and get to work. That means y'all that voted for him, too. You need to let your guys and gals know just what it is you want done--since I'm assuming here that you want what Trump told you he'd do, you voted for him after all--and that means working with the President, not sabotaging him in the back room. That's his supporters.
His opposition? Perhaps if y'all swung a bit more towards the middle, you'd be a bit more successful? Doubling down on what lost the Oval Office, both houses of Congress, etc... ain't exactly swinging back towards the center. That's where I am, at least for the most part, waiting for my party to come back to me.
Grasshopper or the ant. Party on and gloat about the past, or get to work and make sure there'll still be reason to party in three years. Midterms are coming. May I suggest a bit less gloating, and a bit more work? Or not. Whatever.
The New York Times ran the headline "Trump Triumphs." As for the New York Daily News, a newspaper critical of Trump throughout his campaign, it showcased a front page that read "House of Horrors" with an upside down American flag -- a signal of distress.
