Yeah, I get it. I bitched and moaned when you did it and I'm doing it now. I'm defending my President just like you defended your candidate and I don't give a damn. Unlike most liberals, I can be honest upfront though. I'm under no delusions that he is a saint. Everyone has skeletons in the closet and Trump likely has more than most but supporters like myself are going to defend him because we can. If your candidate gets a free pass on her crimes then so should mine especially considering having a personal server with classified government information and then trying to destroy it is more of a crime than Trump using some campaign money to pay off some porn skank.

Why should I care what is found by an FBI that I don't even trust anymore? Lost respect when Comey gave his press conference but lost all faith when they used a fake dossier to justify this investigation. If Trump's forced to resign for minor charges found by them it would prove that a few Congress members and Intel Agency employees can change the entire result of our Presidential Election and that's scary. So yeah, I'm a hypocrite but I'll continue to defend the President because it's damn near an act of patriotism just to do it!

I agree. I was gonna start a thread to see how many different presidencies posters have lived thru. I've gone thru all back to Eisenhower. That's over 10 administrations. Some we're great... Others, not so much.

I gave you a star for being honest, and a pretend flag cause i’m on my IPad and the flag won’t work.

I may not agree with you but at least you have the balls to be honest and upfront. I respect that. I am interested to read the comments that will surely flow in and a lot of them will most likely attack you but just stick to your guns man.

Wouldn't Trump also be a 'skank'? I mean...surely someone would probably pay him to be a 'porn skank', because it's 2018.

When will the US get over it's prudishness?

I'm okay with the porn industry and don't consider myself a prude. I consider a skank to be a woman of low morals. That being said, Stormy Daniels is a skank for extorting a man, taking his money, and still running her mouth. That's pretty low class in my book.

Nah, She is a skank. Now Madison Ivy is definitely non-skank.

We have gone full-on tribal now so no putting it back in the bottle. It's like a Mexican standoff. Oh wait...was that insensitive?

No, we are not all hypocrites. Calling a person a hypocrite is trying to aid them in understanding that there are similarities between themselves and their actions and others and their seemingly different actions.

We all see the wrong in others more easily then we see it within ourselves. This is the truth of the mote in the others eye and the log within our own. A hypocrite is a person who points to the mote in another's eye all the while refusing to take note of the log in their own.

It's not an easy process. Call me a hypocrite and I will make attempts to understand why someone thinks so. It is a challenge to more in depth self awareness not a badge of honor of being a member of the ''Everybody else dun it club.

You make this sound as if there were only two choices. My candidate and your candidate, and if mine this then yours this. And yours did this so mine can do this.

Is it possible that both sides were naive and did not see through the hypocrisy of either of those candidates?

And now that people are waking up and seeing that both sides are the same and that we need to do better to pick someone completely different from both of them, you go --- la, la, la I was wrong and I LOVE being wrong!

The motto of this website is Deny Ignorance, not embrace it.

Just a quick observation-

How about the Ones who KNOW there is nary a difference between (R) and (D) ? You do know that Trump was a (D) all the way up until getting so far in debt He HAD to run?

Even boasted (thats odd) about giving MILLION$$$ to the Clinton Cabal over the years...

There is NO DIFFERENCE and not until the politicians™ get the fact that there are far more of "Us" than "Them", will We ever have a chance....

Can a man have low morals?

If so would he not also be a skank?

Well. I was a Trump supporter from the time I heard of his announcement. I wasn't sure if this was one of his tricks or not. He has been known to make announcements and they usually don't turn out the way you think they will. What people seem to have forgot is that out of the three branches of Government the President, and Vice President are the only ones that the people of this nation vote for. As per the rules set forth, Trump won the Presidency. Now we see that the intelligent agencies that can't keep a secret a secret anymore don't seem to get along with this President, or recognize his authority as the peoples elected leader. People always knew Trump loved women, but now it's bad. I don't care, he was elected President. There has been more corruption exposed in our Government since he was elected. Isn't that what we all actually wanted? Proof that our intelligence agencies are corrupt and not just in a conspiracy way, but an actual way? But there are things that I do disagree with Trump about, but he seems like he listens to his supporters more than the other Presidents. So if you want to change his mind about something, support him and he might listen.

Got any sources for that ?
Because "quick observations" do not set right with intellectuals
