Wow, the level of delusion is high in here. The Orange Emperor is being increasingly revealed for what he is - unstable, ignorant and out of his depth - but some people still think that it's all a plot against him?
Sheesh...


And some people reveal that they believe everything they read, so long as it confirms their biases.


When it confirms my earlier research? And basic reading of New York events in the 1980's and 90's? Come off it, anyone who thinks that Trump is some kind of genius has not been paying attention at all.


"Research"? Oh man, here we go. Do what everyone else does and write a book about it. You might get your 15 minutes.


Erm, yes, research. I'm old enough to remember Trump's rise to prominence in the 1980's. I remember wondering at the time if it was an act, or if he was actually stiffing contractors and getting as close to the mob as he was, and still get away with it. I find everything about him to be a loud, uncouth, boorish embarrassment. He's now flailing about, a midget in the giant shoes of his predecessor, unable to understand the implications of what he's doing, screaming out that people should obey his orders, no matter how illegal those orders are and totally bewildered by a document like the US Constitution. I wondered in January 2017 how it would be before he imploded. Now I have the beginning of my answer.
So - pass the pringels and wait til I open another beer.

And then others can read someone's opinion without having an emotional response. Something that is a healthy trait of an adult living in a free society where all opinions can be voiced.


Consistently bragging about how fair-minded one is isn't a good look. A lot of people did the same as the Nazis came to power. Sometimes you have to stand against injustice and tyranny, or at least get out of the way.


I haven't resorted to hyperbole, so I feel like I'm looking alright.

Injustice and tyranny would be suppressing free speech. Or punishing someone for speaking against the leader.


No one is wanting to punish the guy for speaking, or for free speech, but for the things they author admitted to in his writing. There is a vast difference and it makes no sense conflating these two issues.


For all you know they all teamed together on a position and convinced Trump to change his mind, you know, the function of a cabinet.

They admitted to no crimes.

Hey Krazy, I'd be lashing out too if my party were on the verge of becoming the next Green Party


You all did it to yourselves. Should've dealt with the left-wing crazies instead of turning over the party to 'em. (Maybe then I'd still be voting (D) )

This. I didn't need the propaganda after 2015 to tell me Trump was a bad person. I knew it since the 90's and all the idiotic stuff he used to do for attention. The only difference was back then I could safely ignore his stupidity without it affecting the way I live.

Yes, but you don't then take it to the extreme that you want an anti-Pope. Unless, of course, you want a Borgia. Trump's not cunning enough to be a Borgia by the way.

On the bright-side, we now have very credible evidence of a subversive DEEPSTATE. Looks like Trump was right -again- all along. How many times does this make now? 5? 10? I lost count after the Strozok/Page exposure and the illegal Obama FISA scandal.

Real Americans would be (and are) appalled at the very notion of this. Even the suggestion this may be true is Earth shattering and threatens the very foundations of our system of legitimate Constitutional rule (all other forms are illegitimate and unworthy of the American people)

We could stick with the same public relations approach to politics, where sexual predators, censors, and megalomaniacs disguise their shortcomings beneath a facade of good words and platitudes, but I'd rather it be all out in the open, personally.

Frame it how you want, that is what was said. And yes, a cabinets job is to help the president make informed decisions. If the president is doing something stupid, it's their job to convince him to do something else.

But we're allowed to elect Trump. We have the right to win an election. We have the right to formulate, advocate and enact our agenda - even when it directly opposes the far-left's very unpopular unwanted agenda.

What are you all resisting again? Nothing, that's what. You're resisting our resistance to your horrible policies and unwanted ideology. We are the ones actively resisting the authoritarian far-left's efforts to thwart Constitutional rule.
