Trump,how did it happen? There are not enough superlatives to describe him.But here are a few…a petulant child who cannot let any slight,real or perceived,go by without some sort of juvenile retort that makes him look even “Stupider” The R’s will impeach within 2 years.IMO

Hillary had no excitement behind her and for bad reasons, Trump did. So turnout was depressed for Hillary and a con man snuck in the back door of the WH.

As a Canadian,and someone who cares about America,and the world,I DEMAND TO BE GIVEN A PLAUSIBLE REASON THAT AMERICANS ELECTED THIS NINCOMPOOP!! LOL
Beatlex

Ad–here’s my theory. The repubs will put up with trump’s antics (his lying, his EO’s, etc.) until they can pass their agenda, and most importantly, get the SCOTUS pick they want. Then they will systematically try to destroy trump–either make him resign, (which I think is far fetched), or tie him up in investigations, or some other scenario that I can’t think of, and then we’ll have Pence. Pence, who is Norquist’s dream president; he will just sign whatever the repub Congress puts in front of him, plus he will destroy women’s rights. Of course, that’s what the SCOTUS pick is for–to destroy rights for women and minorities. Anyway, what do you think?
glenn

Beatlex – Only a minority of American voters elected Trump and a far smaller minority of Americans support him. We were undoone for many reasons including Russia and the FBI meddling in the election and the Electoral College screwing the majority.

glenn – I think you’ve nailed the Repubs theory but it’s going too fail. They’re not going to get everything they want passed because most will be filibustered. Also, unless the Dems want to be destrooyed in primaries, I don’t think any SCOTUS judge will escape a filibuster. McConnell set up this dynamic that we don’t need a 9th justice, time for Dems to double down on that. Meanwhile, Trump will do far more damage to himself and Repubs before they can turn on him. That strategy, which I think may be what they’re planning on will blow up in their faces.

Here’s the math on why Trump won: Ignorant, racist and/or emotional voters + widely unpopular, distrusted and disliked status quo Dem candidate depressing Dem turnout + Russia/Putin hacking + Wikileaks + FBI corrupting election + MSM giving Trump 2 billion in free publicity + archaic electoral college = Trump winning election.

The Brits are SO up themselves that they think they can have business as usual with the EU after Brexit. They’re going to be a lonely little petunia in an onion patch very soon, so they need to kiss some US butt to try and stay relevant.
pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago
FD – I think Obama’s Admins were the exception, it seems like many Presidents set up the US as a kleptocracy. All the wasteful military spending, contractors everywhere bilking the US and taxpayers having no protection from them. Trump’s taking things back to where they usually are but we’ve gotten used to Obama and clean government.
AdLib 4 hours ago
oh, I think Trump plans to take it much further than ever before. I mean, just look at his cabinet picks so far.
Fuzzy Dunlop

4 hours ago
Beatlex – The Repubs might want to get rid of Trump but as we saw in the primary and election, they’re too cowardly to take him on. They can’t stand up to him, I don’t know that he gets impeached.
AdLib 4 hours ago
oh yeah, Trump is going to represent “the little guy!” HAHAHA!
Fuzzy Dunlop

4 hours ago
Ad–I’m still waiting for Dems to throw the shit at the wall against trump, like repubs did at Hillary. Every day, there should be a Dem on TV talking about trump’s russian ties, his violation of the emolument clause, his 10 executive orders in 5 days, etc., etc. I did see where Corey Booker actually came out and called him a liar. However, while the goddamn press is focused on trump’s twitter tantrums, the House is ramming their agenda through as quickly as they can, with nary a word from either the press or Dems!

Yes ad,but many of us could not resist slayng them! LOL

glenn – After hearing about that leaked tape where the Repubs are all wringing their hands over actually repealing the ACA, I wonder if they won’t try to pull a roundabout con to basically keep the ACA in place but claim it’s Trumpcare now. One thing they recognize, no replacement can be passed without Dems on board, it can be filibustered. They and Trump are going to learn that just blathering or signing Executive Orders isn’t enough to get what they want.
AdLib 4 hours ago
glenn they want to disrupt intelligent discourse between liberals, they come to mock and start flame wars. They’re so obvious though, people see them almost immediately for who they are.
Fuzzy Dunlop

Ad,the ACA needs tweaks,this may be a good time to correct that(If that is their intention)
Beatlex

4 hours ago
FD – Better yet, all the news stations should run a banner below Conway saying, “You Can’t Believe Anything Kellyanne Conway Says”.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Fuzzy–wish the stupid press would do the same thing with trump’s batshit theories. Just ignore them, and ask trump and his minions about the Obamacare replacement plan, plans for NATO, how he’s going to pay for the fucking wall, what his plans are for Social Security and Medicare. Oh, and by the way, when will the repairs to our infrastructure begin, and how will we pay for that? Maybe Mexico would like to “chip in” for the infrastructure rather than the wall!
glenn

I think their goal B is to make as many monetary cuts as they can without actually letting people die.
Fuzzy Dunlop

4 hours ago
Beatlex – I know, I did my time battling trolls so I get it. But it is what they want, what really destroys them is being ignored.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Fuzzy,agreed,they don’t care if people are dying in the streets
Beatlex

Ad–Isn’t it wonderful that now repubs have to actually govern that they actually have to face the hard facts of governing?

I have been wrapped up in a Navigators effort to put pressure on our legislators and the WH to use the appropriated funding for ACA ads in the final weeks of open enrollment which the Trump admin had ordered not be spent.

This isn’t going to last and one thing people may not be thinking about yet is how devious the people around him are and how, as things continue to turn against them, they will stab each other in the back.

Were any of you involved with the Womens March last week. I planned to go to St. Louis with three others in one car for a rally/march that the organizers hoped would end up with 5,000. By Friday night, post inauguration speech, our group had grown to 20 or so. The next morning 54 people showed up to the rendezvous point. And that’s how the march/rally ended up with 25,000 plus.

Notice how Trump changed his “illegal immigrant voter” meme? Widening it to include all of those who have passed away are still on voter rolls, and those who are registered in more than one jurisdiction…of course neither of those is illegal and there has never been any indication that double voting, or dead man voting is a modern problem…..Ashcroft under Bush spent four years trying to make the case…and could not….

Glenn….Dems in larger numbers will be trying to hold onto seats in red/purple states. Ex. Clair McCasskill will be fighting for her seat in Mo. which in the last election went even deeper red, such that the entire government, legislative and executive, has gone GOP.

Murph–Those Dems in those seats need to go full progressive; that is what the majority of Dems, not to mention people, are wanting now. They need to tie any repub candidate to trump, who by that time, will be even more toxic.

Murph – After 2 years of Trump, I don’t think the amount of Dem seats up will be as much of an issue. Midterm elections typically favor the party out of power, polls are already showing an 8% Dem advantage and Trump’s only been in a week. Dems will likely take back The Senate in 2 years.

Murph – Do you think Trump would actually nominate a centrist after seeing his cabinet picks? Even if his SCOOTUS picks are filibustered, I can’t imagine him doing that. So Dems should just keep SCOTUS at 8 to minimize the damage during Trump’s term.

Murph–and those are the seats we have to worry about. Dems should make sure that all the hearings are held in open sessions, so the candidates can be vetted thoroughly. May not do much good, but at least the Dems can show that they’re working, and forcing the repubs to work too. The repubs can’t keep governing by executive order.
glenn

glenn – Exactly! If it’s not a matter of urgency too have 9 justices, as Repubs have declared and Presidents shouldn’t have a right to get a vote on a nom in over a year, then have it your way, Repubs.

Murph – It’s the way it has to be right now. Trump can’t be allowed to put an extremist in the SCOTUS after Obama was denied the right to put in a centrist. It’s a new rule now, a party’s going too have too build a coalition in The Senate to get a SCOTUS pick in. Maybe that ends up being a good thing?
AdLib 3 hours ago
Glenn…as we have seen with the confirmation hearings so far….Dems can slow things down, wage public relations battles to push the GOP to alter committee rules..BUT in the final analysis it is the GOP chairs who rule and closed door hearings will still take place.
