Nope! You failed to put on a black mask, hit someone with your bike lock and topple a Confederate statue.


My commie friends and I kind of like those statues.

We're all for symbols of oppression.

Dude!!! We've been having fun today, but joking about ANTIFA is taking it too far. Those effing terrorists are going to bring this country to it's knees unless we deliver .223 of freedom right to their dome piece.

Well, it is an indicator of just how much trouble we are in in this country that the DNC only looks good when compared to the GOP. Democrats - especially Corporate Democrats - are almost as bad as the GOP, but not quite. We need a full blown revamp of politics in this country, and it might - MIGHT - be one good thing to come out of the Trump administration if it helps such a revamp happen.

Obama was actually a pretty good president, again, in the context of recent presidents. There are plenty of things he did wrong, and he turned out to not be charismatic (or whatever was needed) enough to overcome the massive reaction to him being black, but he did do more good than harm. That's my opinion, which is clearly different than yours, and I'm not interested in re-arguing the point. Obama was by no means anywhere close to perfect, but he was better than most recent presidents; the current one especially.

Same way i view the guy who picked him who was Manafort.

Why is a felon choosing the VP? And what connection does this felon have with Pence?

We do not use assault weapons.

We prefer glitter bombs and flash mobs.

Because we commies like it...

and that is why we all have opinions and you can't just assume you are more correct than others. I think Trump is doing a good job, and Obama was the worst we have seen in quite a while. With destroying health care and erasing years of race relation improvements, he sucked large ones. But that's my opinion based on my life.

www.justice.gov... well if and its still a big if there is always the 4th quarter hail mary pass as a last ditch option ,no idea how well it would go over but they were thinking about it in 1974 ,while he cant pardon him self trump can remove him self via 25th amendment have pence pardon him then get checked out by doctors and in theory return to office . it would hinge on having absolute trust in pence to not want the big chair and for a president known for liking a good trolling here and there it would be the epitome of trolling.


U nder the fundamental rule that no one may be a judge in his own case , the President cannot pardon himself. If under the Twenty - F ifth Amendment the President declare d that he was temporarily unable to perform the duties of the office, the Vice President would become Acting President and as such could pardon the President. Thereafter the President could either resign or resume the du ties of his office. Although as a general matter Congress cannot enact amnesty or pardoning legislation , because to do so would interfere with the pardoning power vested expressly in the President by the Constitution , it could be argued that a congressiona l pardon granted to the President would not interfere with the President’s pardoning power because that power does not extend to the President himself
so in this scenario dont think mike would be president long.

if pence is president roe v wade gets a target on its back,gay rights probably take a hit and he would continue to stack federal courts like trump has been doing for two years,which could help in future challenges . pence scares the bejesus out of me honestly but im a more moderate republican. nothing will happen before midterms at least ,and no impeachment will begin until they have the votes and by all the signs Kavanaugh will be sworn into SCOTUS before then. and two SCOTUS justices will make alot of republicans view trump as being successful on that front alone

www.pewresearch.org...

As of July 12, Trump has successfully appointed 43 judges, including one Supreme Court justice (Neil Gorsuch), 22 appeals court judges and 20 district judges. Dozens of other court nominees are awaiting votes in the Senate, including two more appeals court judges who could be confirmed this week.While a few of Trump’s predecessors going back to Jimmy Carter had also appointed a Supreme Court justice by July 12 of their second year in office, none had appointed close to as many appeals court members – the powerful judges who sit just below the Supreme Court level. (Kavanaugh is currently a federal appeals court judge, just as eight of the nine current Supreme Court members were before they became justices.)
so its not like any of these judges or justices of scotus will go anywhere if they get rid of trump and its still a pretty big if.

www.vanityfair.com...

“We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president,” the former White House aide warned.

Impeachment doesn't play with the masses.


Nor should it.

I want an impeachment to damned near impossible, and it is, as it now stands, just that.

A successful impeachment of a sitting President means bad things have happened, are happening, and will continue to do so, unless drastic changes are made.

Impeachment isn't something that should be spur of the moment. Oh, I don't like him, let's impeach him. There by circumventing the will of the people.

All I can say is the mid-terms are really critical this time, if a blue wave hits, Trump will have a hard time for sure, impeachment would still be a long shot, your going to have to get around 15 GOP senators to flip.

But if a red wave hits, pack it up boys and girls, you don't think Trump cares what others think now, wait to see how many heads roll if this happens, and Sessions is at the front of that hit list, he will be the first to go. And if Mueller hasn't wrapped up his case by then Trump will fire him too. They will all be gone once the new Senate and Congress sits with the GOP firmly in charge........as Vader once said "there will be no one to stop us this time"; Que the Imperial March.

Well, there's that, but Nixon didn't have the people behind him like Trump does.


Trump is quite literally the least popular president in history.

Now sure things have changed a lot since Nixon but when you look at the data Trumps approval rating as a collective has never been over 50% other than the first few days of his presidency, Nixon at this point was still above 50%, now sure he eventually dropped to something like 24% and not even Trump has fell that low just yet but the point is that Trumps approval ratings for his first 18 months or so in office have been lower than any other president in history.

So you can't really say he has the people behind him, remember he never even won the popular vote. If you look at the numbers there is nothing to suggest that he has the people behind him a poll done by CNN showed that over 40% of the public support Trumps impeachment


So much ignorance in one post. Wow.

No president will EVER have over 50% approval again. We are THAT divided. So that metric is pointless. No Democrat is going to like ANY Republican President, and no Republican will like ANY Democrat President. Take that to the bank.

More people didn't vote than did, and for you to say he's "quite literally the least popular President in history" is asinine, and ignorant. the 3 million more votes she got was from LA and New York mainly.

The popular vote isn't a thing, except in the minds of wishful thinkers. The Electoral College IS a thing, and it prevents us from Mob Rule by population centers like New York or Los Angeles.

I can say he has the people behind him, because unlike you, I actually LIVE HERE. I talk to people everyday in the real world, and the hate you see online, isn't the norm. It's there of course, but far less vocal, and far less prevalent. I know more people who are happy with the way the country is going and are happy with the economy (finally) then those who are not.

The Democrats have a much bigger hurdle to jump than you or they want to believe.

Bill did as well..

Bush spent most of his pre iraq run abouve 50%..

He's very, very conservative but not in the fiscal conservative or conservative government way, but in a very Christian way.

I wouldn't be surprised if he pushed for bible teachings in public schools, or the ten commandments in every Courtroom or courthouse. I see him taking away religious freedoms. I'm a little afraid for science.

On the plus side, he's not chaotic, I think he has his own moral compass, isn't on Twitter and isn't in a state of constant personal crisis. That might be better.
