Another scary day...


ADDED: It can be scary even when you recognize that he was joking. He's President and in the position of enforcing the law, and from that position punching down. He really should not be joking about treason. And I get that he's punching back, and that's his style. But people aren't just idiots if they feel afraid of a President who isn't continually assuring us that he's aware of his profound responsibilities.

I love to watch Erin Burnett, but I can't stand to listen to her talk about politics.

I hope that some day she quits CNN and then just interviews celebrities about show-business stuff.

This is what heads-popping looks like!!!

I love the full range of emotions on their faces. Mr. Adams is very perceptive.

tim in vermont said...

They refuse to grant him the tiny sliver of human sympathy it would take for them to understand his jokes. They are not in charge and that’s not funny!

Bay Area Guy said...

Well, some are un-American. They want the US to be a multi-cultural, multi-lingual, bisexual, atheistic, socialistic enclave (in theory), but then they get upset when many folks prefer a more, ahem, "traditional" approach to America.

tim in vermont said...

The middle one looks sort of amused and embarrassed that she works with the other two clowns, if you ask me. But that’s just from the single screenshot. I have zero idea who any of them are.

Lance said...

It'd be nice to see Trump's actual comments. Too bad it's Twitter.

Earnest Prole said...

In human history has there ever been a hackier hack than Joan Walsh? She quite literally has never spoken a word in her life that wasn't a DNC talking point; compared to her, Democratic Party officials are wildly unpredictable free thinkers.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

She used to present herself as a legitimate news personality before CNN became a clown show. Now, I can't imagine many people will ever take her seriously again. It almost makes you feel sorry for her. Almost.

Chuck said...

Senator Tammy Duckworth calls out "Cadet Bone Spurs" after "treasonous remark:

https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/06/politics/tammy-duckworth-cadet-bone-spurs/index.html

A Scott Adams "kill shot." Wait, there aren't any kill shots versus Trump for Scott Adams, right?

But don't get too excited about "Cadet Bone Spurs," because I think Senator Duckworth was only joking.

Besides, Trump just passed a physical with flying colors, and no signs of bone spurs. He wasn't even obese.

Michael said...

I love to watch the faces of these lib t.v. people. So sad, so concerned, so....scared.

I watched CNN this morning with the sound off as the stock market opened. Half the screen was devoted to the DOW and they were thrilled when it opened down 500+. Within 15 minutes it had climbed into positive territory and their faces had fallen and they took down the DOW as it climbed.

As the progs are wont to say...sad.

tim in vermont said...

That’s the one that persuaded me you really are a Republican, Chuck!

Chuck said...

Somebody wanted to see Trump's full remarks in context:

tim in vermont said...

Hamilton Sperger continues his relentless prosecution of Trump!

MadisonMan said...

Now everyone is talking about how the Democrats didn't applaud or stand up during SOTU. Sure, that fact just tags along with the Cray-Cray Donald Trump Treason statement, but what will be remembered? That the Democrats didn't applaud or stand up.

Brilliance.

tim in vermont said...

I watched the video you provided Chuck, he was joking, and, like all good jokes, his joke had a point. You can’t see it because your hatred blinds you.

langford peel said...

You should listen to Chuck when he talks about treason.

He knows from whence he speaks.

tim in vermont said...

I liked the part about the one Democrat who cautiously applauded his remark that the US is enjoying the lowest black unemployment rate in the history of the measure. Yeah, it has been trending down over time, but it has dropped below the trend line significantly.

Chuck said...

Tim in Vermont said...
That’s the one that persuaded me you really are a Republican, Chuck!


You think that Jeff Flake is not a Republican?

https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/06/politics/jeff-flake-donald-trump-treasonous/index.html

tim in vermont said...

What will be remembered is that they didn’t applaud his factual statement that black unemployment is at record lows. Of course CNN will never remark on that, but they have to keep Chuck glued to the screen, you know, a few inches from the screen, mesmerized, talking to the screen as if they can hear him, when they get off a good shot at Trump he cheers and drools, and says “punch him again, punch him again!” and giggles uncontrollably.

Face it, CNN is the Gorilla Channel for Democrats and the one Republican, of course.

Anonymous said...

Trump just used the wrong word. Seditious is the best - and most accurate -description of the Dems, but no one knows what it really means. Maybe we'll find out when some of the FBI scum goes on trial!

Can we blame peoples' current inability to understand/appreciate humor on feminism? It is certainly part and parcel of that currently grim movement.

Madison Man probably has it absolutely right on the result of this.

tim in vermont said...

Flake is just deliberately misunderstanding Trump, same as you are. And it is a little un-American to begrudge what is certainly good news for all Americans, and black and Hispanic Americans in particular.

But Flake, he’s the soul of the party? Oh yeah: “Criticizing President Donald Trump, Flake announced on October 24, 2017 that he would retire from the Senate at the end of his current term and would not seek reelection in 2018.[3][4]” - Wikipedia

Anonymous said...

@Chuck Neither Flake nor his compatriot McCain are really Republicans. They are essentially each members of a party of one. Neither can be gone too soon.

langford peel said...

Jeff Flake is being run out of the party for being a traitor.

He can't run again unless he is honest with himself and runs as a Democrat.

You should do the same chuckles.

But we have some compassion for you. You are still transititioning. Why not take the plunge and cut your balls off and become a Democrat?

Be true to your true nature. Isn't it so difficult to be living a lie?

Drago said...

I see LLR, "Accidental Leftist" and #StrongStolenValorDemLiarDefender Chuck is, once again, 110% on board with whatever lefty/dem talking points of the day happen to be.

And, for the record, LLR Chuck is such a "courageous" patriot he almost, almost, joined the military but after reconsidering he decided not to.

LOL

tim in vermont said...

How many obvious tells does Trump have to give to say he is joking? Chuck would sit on his hands if Trump announced that he had just made a deal with Jesus Christ to come down to Earth and give us world peace and universal prosperity, with Jesus Christ standing beside him to take questions.

"Everyone"?

Last night, what I saw on CNN when I purposely turned away from the unlistenable Sean Hannity was video of Republicans at an Obama SOTU, sitting on their hands in exactly the same way that Trump complained about. One after another a half-dozen or more examples. Enough to make the viewer laugh at Trump. Some "joke."

So maybe it's true; that 30 or 35% of the country that really likes Trump might just think that this is the first time it has ever happened, that an opposing party sat on their hands at a State of the Union.

But another big chunk -- a larger percentage, I'd say -- will think, "What the hell is Trump talking about? He's wrong, and it is an awful thing to make such a bland and factless allegation of 'treason'."

The part in the State of the Union when I actually wished that Trump really had been joking was when he promised to lower prescription drug prices, presumably by using federal and/or executive branch power (Medicare?) monopoly power to force lower prices.

Drago said...

And if you want to know how I know LLR Chuck "almost" joined the military, it's because LLR Chuck thought it was so relevant he wrote about it on this very site!

LOL

"almost" joining the military is quite commendable and certainly comment-worthy!

It's always fun when LLR Chuck's beloved dems take timeout from calling republicans nazi's and traitors 24/7 to complain that Trump joked about them behaving treasonously!

Good job Chuck. Maddow would be proud of you!

stevew said...

They have a big red button on their backs that says "Push Me", and he does. It's pretty funny, really, how they can't stop themselves. Imagine if one of them had the presence of mind to retweet and add, "Hey, Donald, Fuck off". Now that would be entertaining.

-sw

Drago said...

LLR Chuck exhibits the same level of passion attacking Trump for his joke treason remark as LLR Chuck does defending Li'l Dickie "us soldiers are Gestapo" Durbin.

You can always count on Chuck to be very consistent!

Chuck said...

No kidding; that will be a Trump campaign promise I expect if he makes it to 2020. He loves the evangelicals. Two Corinthians.

I wouldn't need a visitation from Christ -- but I would hail it as a miracle -- if Trump had simply made good on his promise to lower healthcare premiums, lower deductibles, cover "everybody," and provide great coverage.

madAsHell said...

Another scary day.......yes, it is!

Drago said...

Just wait until Trump makes the LLR Chuck's beloved dems march right up to the edge of another shutdown over their treasonous open-borders behavior.

Chuckie is going to absolutely melt-down when Trump takes those idiot ems to the "shouldn't have helped MS-13" woodshed!

Mary Beth said...

You think that Jeff Flake is not a Republican?

I think he's an ass.

Drago said...

LLR Chuck: "I wouldn't need a visitation from Christ..."

Any one of your saved and framed magazine covers of the "magnificent" obama with a halo should be sufficient for you.

Drago said...

You can just see Trump speaking to those midwest voters in their language and nailing those states down for the republicans for 2020.

No wonder LLR Chuck is so upset!

LOL

Comanche Voter said...

I'd normally cut Senator Duckworth some slack---she is after all a double amputee after an Iraqi RPG shot down her Blackhawk Helicopter in Iraq in 2004.

But she is totally out to lunch on that "Cadet Bone Spurs" crack. Trump was born in 1946. He graduated from college in 1968. Along the way he received a II-S student deferment each year for his four years of college. "Four Deferments". I would point out that so did every other full time college student during the years 1964 to 1968. So there was nothing unusual in that.

Duckworth herself was bornin19678--in Bangkok Thailand. So maybe there's a reason for the state of her ignorance about the U.S. draft law at the time.

At age 22 in 1968 --with the demands of Viet Nam, Uncle Sam was probably interested in you--if you were male.

But a draftee who was going to go to Viet Nam (after 6 months or so of training) was most likely going to be an infantryman--who would be asked to hump 110 pounds or more of gear up a steep jungle hillside. (I should add that I went through infantry basic and advanced infantry training at Ft.Polk Louisiana in the summer of 1969). If your Military Occupational Specialty is one in the 11 Series (11-Bravo, 11-Charlie, or 11-Hotel --I was an 11-Hotel myself) your feet had better be good. When the time came to say "feets do your stuff" those "feets" had better work. And as a result, young men with bone spurs or flat feet were routinely classified 4-F in 1968 and 1969.

Now Ms. Duckworth (and for that matter John McCain, Jimmy Carter, John Kerry and Jack Kennedy) went to war riding in a seat or on a boat. "Feets" don't and didn't matter so much to them. So Ms. Duckworth,"Cadet Bone Spurs" is cute--but says more about your ignorance than about Donald Trump.

Big Mike said...

I wish people would back off the casual use of words like "treason" and "traitor." It's a very, very serious crime, people! That goes for dumbshit liberals as well as President Trump.

Chuck said...

Drago said...
And if you want to know how I know LLR Chuck "almost" joined the military, it's because LLR Chuck thought it was so relevant he wrote about it on this very site!

Because one of you jackasses asked me about it. And I answered with about three sentences.

Which is a funny thing. I get asked a whole lot of questions about who I am or what I do or what I've done.

When I don't care one bit about any of you. Wait; there's an exception to that of course. I remember this blog, pre-Trump. And how many thoughtful lawyers there were, posting interesting comments about Scott Walker, Wisconsin protests, the detestable Wisconsin John Doe law, the Wisconsin Supreme Court battles, etc. And I probably asked a few of them what sort of law practice they had.

Drago said...

Has anyone run a search on althouse to see if LLR Chuck has ever, and I mean ever, complained about dems calling republicans terrorists, nazi's, traitors, etc?

LOL

You don't have to. You already know the answer!

Drago said...

LLR Chuck: "Because one of you jackasses asked me about it. And I answered with about three sentences"

The nation thanks you for the deepness of your thoughts which is only matched by your astonishing "courage"!

LOL

Drago said...

LLR Chuck: "...the detestable Wisconsin John Doe law..."

LOL

Good one. (wink wink)

mockturtle said...

CNN continues to beclown themselves. What annoys me is that people abroad watch CNN and think it's the American news source. I'm hoping they learn that CNN is about as reliable as Le Monde or Der Spiegel and probably less reliable than Al Jazeera.

Drago said...

mockturtle: "CNN continues to beclown themselves."

Uh oh.

Now you've done it.

If you think LLR and #StrongCNNDefender Chuck is going to let you get away with that, you've got another thing coming.

He might even give you the Greta treatment! Which would be terrible. Although, it's better that then the Maddow treatment, which involves alot of heavy petting.

Chuck said...

Comanche Voter: the problem with your comment is that you are assuming that the young Donald J. Trump actually had bone spurs, and that he did not concoct a phony excuse with the help of a friendly New York City doctor.

brylun said...

I was a 98C20 MOS and served from Sep 69 to May 72 in Nam and Ethiopia.

I don’t quote Duckworth.

LLR Chuck takes time out from counting his medals for valor to attack Trump for something for which there is no proof.

Huh.

Attacking Trump for something for which there is no proof.....gee...that sounds awfully familiar, doesn't it?

It's a real mystery how LLR Chuck ends up on the lefty narrative team every single day, isn't it?

Meade said...

Spurtherism.

Chuck said...

What exactly was your point at 5:16 pm, Drago? Are you saying that no one should believe me now, when I suggest that the Wisconsin John Doe law was an inexplicable monstrosity?

Drago said...

I'm just waiting until LLR Chuck picks up the political attacks on decorated war vet Tom Cotton (again!) in order to protect noted slanderer of US Troops Li'l Dickie Durbin.

So, just so you know: if you are a principled republican standing up for conservative values in government, a fantastic war record will in no way protect you from attacks from LLR Chuck.

Just so you know.

Drago said...

LLR Chuck: " Are you saying that no one should believe me now, when I suggest that the Wisconsin John Doe law was an inexplicable monstrosity?"

Of course not lifelong republican.

Of course not.

Never. In. A. Million. Years.

Perish the thought.

(wink wink)

Drago said...

We are literally almost 18 months into an administration where the dems have accused Trump and his campaign of treason every single day, so we should really be worried and fret about this joke at the expense of dems...(who very much want to "fundamentally transform" our nation through open borders and replacement of the current US voting population......patriotically)

LOL

Chuck said...

Meade said...
Spurtherism.

Until Trump steps on a certified scale, we haven't yet sorted out "Girtherism."

http://www.businessinsider.com/what-is-the-girther-movement-trump-weight-2018-1

Birtherism, on the other hand, was never valid, and never in doubt; it only took Trump a bit longer than most people to get that one.

Drago said...

Poor Chuck.

He's really flailing now, isn't he?

LOL

It's a shame he couldn't have "flailed" his own rear end down to a recruiting office a few years back......

Come to think of it, by NOT joining "Bowe Bergdahl Republican" Chuck probably did his nation a favor.

Meade said...

Spurtherism... girtherism...

Gotta hand it to you, Chuck: You are the original spurthist/girthist. Congratulations.

Well, here you go, Drago. You cheesy, moronic douchebag.

Me, in 2014. Before Donald Trump. Before I began to wonder about Althouse's sanity, before I became the subject of daily personal attacks on these comments pages too numerous to count anymore. Before Althouse abandoned her rules, er, suggestions, er, instructions for commenting. Back when I was an ordinary Republican loyalist on the Althouse blog:
Chuck said...
I am hard pressed to think of a state statute anywhere in the country that is more richly deserving of a court challenge, than Wisconsin's mystifying (if not terrifying) "John Doe" investigatory statute.

What were they thinking when they enacted this monstrosity?

LLR Chuck: "You are such a nasty piece of work, Drago. Among a couple of dozen rude and insulting commenters, you are in a class by yourself for persistent stupidity."

Just think.

All I'd have to do is change party affiliation and malign our troops and I could have a great new booster in Chuck!

But you know, that's simply a price I'm unwilling to pay for LLR Chuck's unwavering support.

LOL

Christy said...

Do you figure paid trolls get bonus pay for every mention of their name by another poster?

Drago said...

LLR Chuck: "What were they thinking when they enacted this monstrosity?"

They were thinking maybe we (the dems/left/LLR's) ought to test drive our new weaponization of government agencies and bodies strategy to see how it works.

And we can see that they have taken this strategy to "11", with the full support of the LLR's.

Unexpectedly.



Drago said...

Christy: "Do you figure paid trolls get bonus pay for every mention of their name by another poster?"

If so, I'll have to be very careful in the future when I reference *** *****.

Drago said...
I'm just waiting until LLR Chuck picks up the political attacks on decorated war vet Tom Cotton (again!) in order to protect noted slanderer of US Troops Li'l Dickie Durbin.

QUIT LYING ABOUT ME!

I never had any political loyalty to Dick Durbin. And you, Drago -- you liar, you troll -- can't find one line of writing from me expressing political support for Dick Durbin.

You also can't find one line of political criticism of me aimed at Tom Cotton.

What I have told you many times now, and which you are too mendacious to admit to these readers, is that there is just one single issue on which I side with Durbin and against Cotton. It is of course the question of whether Trump said, "shithole countries." I believe Durbin. And all that Tom Cotton can do is say that he "didn't hear it."

On that one point, I think Durbin is telling the truth, and Cotton is lying.

And now, by making your customary personal attacks on me, you've cluttered up another comments page.

exiledonmainstreet, green-eyed devil said...

Chuck, who gives a shit that you defended Walker in 2010? You think that should grant you some sort of lifetime credibility?

There was a time when I agreed with many things Bill Kristol said. I thought he was a strong conservative - until he said he'd rather have the Deep State and Hillary than Trump in office. A conservative who hates a duly elected Republican President who has had a remarkably good first year by conservative standards he'd be happy to see him impeached is NOT a conservative but a liar.

Now Kristol is a mainstay on MSNBC - their pet "conservative." I read his pathetic Tweets from time and time and he sounds no different than you do - with one exception. At least Kristol is honest enough to admit he never voted for Trump.

Drago said...

LLR Chuck: "I believe Durbin."

I'm picturing that emblazoned on a banner and hanging across your home.

Later LLR Chuck: "And now, by making your customary personal attacks on me, you've cluttered up another comments page"

What are your thoughts about Li'l Dickie Durbin calling US troops gestapo?

What are your thoughts about democrats calling Trump a traitor non-stop for 18 months now?

Go ahead Chuck!

You know Chuck, some of the dems calling Trump a traitor did not serve their nation! "5 Deferment" Biden himself said in the debate with Ryan: “These guys bet against America all the time”.



Yeah, we are all very upset that your beloved open borders dems got called out.

Chuck said...

Meade said...
"Before Althouse abandoned her rules, er, suggestions, er, instructions for commenting."

Stop lying about Althouse, Chuck.

What is the lie?

I asked about Althouse's removal of what I called "rules" that used to exist in print at the bottom of her comments pages.

You wrote that they were "instructions," never "rules."

She removed the printed copy, and has not replaced it, and has not done much of anything to enforce any sort of code of conduct for commenting.

So what exactly was my "lie"?

Drago said...

LLR Chuck: "She removed the printed copy, and has not replaced it, and has not done much of anything to enforce any sort of code of conduct for commenting."

Perhaps Althouse should be reported to the Blog Commenting Control Board.

That whole episode was humiliating for Durbin. And he deserved every bit of humiliation that came his way. Just personally, that's not even in my Top Ten List of Reasons to Fear and Loathe Dick Durbin. The DC Circuit Court of Appeals nomination of Miguel Estrada would be my own #1.

What are your thoughts about democrats calling Trump a traitor non-stop for 18 months now?

Go ahead Chuck!

Who said that? When? Under what circumstances? I can think of about a lot of devastating entitlements for Trump. "Traitor" doesn't come to mind. I'd stick with "liar," "fabulist," "dummy," "pig" and "sociopath." For openers.

Somewhere else on this blog, I have a vague recollection of saying that a charge of "Treason" in the case of Trump was a silly charge.

Yes. The request was for explicit, spelled out, criticism of the dems. You decided that was a bridge too far!

LLR Chuck: "Drago, do you even know what I am talking about, with the DC Circuit?"

LOL again. Deflection again.

And always for the same reason: refusal to offer any, much less strong, direct criticism of the dems.

You really do think you are being clever, don't you?

Good. That's how Michelle felt, no doubt. But Greta thinks it was frivolous in Michelle's case. Again, good for me when I do it to her.


How does that have anything to do with the subject of the Althouse post, and alternatively, how does that flow from any of the foregoing comments/

DO YOU SEE, LAWRENCE MEADE? YOU SEE WAHT I AM TALKING ABOUT, WITH AN ABANDONMENT OF COMMENTING DECORUM? Althouse complains about "clutter" on her comments pages. Just look at this page. Completely run into a rhetorical ditch with personal attacks on me, with nothing whatsoever to do with the original Althouse post. it is now more "clutter" than content.

My first post at 4:30 had nothing to do with any other commenter. I aimed a comment at the substantive response to Trump by Senator Duckworth on this issue, and combined it with a comment aimed at Scott Adams.

"Tim in Vermont" tried to draw me offsides, but I deflected back to the topic at hand, in the form of Jeff Flake's response to this very issue. (4:53 pm.)

Then it became something of a donnybrook, with a dozen or more of Althouse's commenters making personal attacks on me. Leading up to the comment from Full Moon, of a kind that I have specifically raised with Althouse in email.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

Well it's not as if his entire presidency isn't a joke.

But people shouldn't use words like "treasonous" and "un-American" jokingly. Unless they take those concepts jokingly.

Which someone might. But not the president. Unless, again, he's a joke president.

Narcissists do not see people in three-dimensions, but as cartoon cut-outs.

Trump's way of coping is obviously to make a joke out of everything he does, as well.

If you had told me that this was possible a year ago I would have said, 'on the balance of probabilities, most likely not'.

It is genuinely extraordinary how quickly attitudes have changed on this issue.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

Looks like the Republican circular firing squad is getting all fired up. On today's agenda: The Usual. How un-partisan Chuck is. Why a Republican who changes his mind and has his own independent thoughts on things can't be trusted at all.

This is the fascist version of the PC thought police. Republican partisanship clearly means that your motives and criticisms will be questioned at all times. Good thing these wacko children's clubs don't care whether they can sustain a majority of the voting public or anything. Then things might be a problem for them.

But for now, ostracism, paranoia, 100% partisan dependency and subservience rules the day. There is no room for independent thought or judgment when you pull the (R) lever for two election cycles in a row, apparently.

Republicans run their loyalty rewards program like a meth lab runs its customer service base. Unless you run back to them for all your needs then they just shut you out. Anyone whose dedication to the Republican leader stops short of something less than a full-blown addiction they will drum right out with merciless nastiness and terror.

LLR Chuck: "It was Senatorial piracy, to block Estrada. And the pirate captain was Dick Durbin."

LOL

The best part of LLR Chuck's comments is the contrast between his assumed aura of superiority in making pronouncements about our political environment which turn out to be hilariously incorrect combined with his presumptions that he alone is aware of well-publicized "insider" type "stuff".

Poor Chuck just didn't get the memo on how he was falling short on the blood oaths, the swearing on his children to Donald's Kids here, the monitoring activities on his Republican record, etc., etc., etc. They audit these things, you know, and are all subject to quarterly partisanship performance reviews.

Comanche Voter said...

Chuckles, the problem with your comment re "bone spurs" and "friendly doctors in New York" is that neither you, nor I, were in the doctor's office where bone spurs were diagnosed.

Were there doctors in 1968 and 1969 who would find a convenient medical "excuse" for a young middle class male who didn't want to get drafted. Your are absolutely correct.

Were there draft law specialists (yes they existed at the time--there was a loose leaf law service edited and published by a very prominent and very able lawyer named Michael Tigar) who knew which medical examiners at which induction centers were likely to find which medical problems would yield a 4-F classification. I did some draft law work for my law firm at the time. If you thought your client's son or employee had "X" sort of problem for example, you tried to have him take his induction physical at "Y" induction station.

But your assertion that Trump didn't have bone spurs is based on absolutely nothing but your own bias--you're not the doc who examined him and wrote the letter at the time.

You're also not the ROTC colonel who got a letter from young William Jefferson Clinton expressing his desire to "join up" and asking for help in getting a deferment. That desire evaporated the day Slick Willie got a high number in the draft lottery.

WHAT. the. FUCK. does that matter?

Blonde Pageant Policeman Trump reiterated the diagnosis himself. In public. At a press conference. With reporters.

When they asked him what foot it was he told them they could look at the record for themselves, because he clearly couldn't remember.

It was on Comedy Central. Jon Stewart responded in a slack jawed Queens accent, "Uh, right or left. One of those two. Probably the one that isn't in my MOOOUTTTH).

You fuckers are so crazy that you'd demand a professional opinion on Charles Manson before coming to a conclusion on his sanity.

Denial is a virtue to a Republican.

The glaciers aren't melting, the atmosphere is unnecessary for climate, the wealthy are dependent on tax breaks to do anything and apparently good mental health should be assumed of every walking, talking head case until three professionals agree otherwise.

Maybe you should ask a judge and jury to approve your de-Facebooking of any "friend" who strips naked and asks where all the kids are hanging out at.

I'm so old, I remember way back to 2008 when Limbaugh said, responding to Obama's hope to "fundamentally change" the nation, that he hoped Obama would fail. OMG! The weeping, the gnashing to teeth! The cries of "Respect the office if not the man!" "Limbaugh wants the USA to fail!"

Liberals are without shame. Today, calls for Trump's death are commonplace, even as he digs the car out of the ditch while the Democrats enjoy their Slurpees.

You are just wrong Tuttie.

President Trump is a Populist not a Republican. He goes wrong when he follows the Republican primrose path that he is led down by McConnell and Ryan. He is on to something by being for the American People and not the Deep State. That is why they have to destroy him.

The true test is if he follows what Miller and Cotton has set up on immigration. He has to follow through on his main campaign promise to build the wall and end the endless open border migration that destroys the economy for working class Americans. If he can hold fast he will win even more bigly the next time he runs.

Of course he should wait a little bit so more drunken illegal immigrants can run down NFL players. Bonus points if they get one that kneels for the Anthem.

Polls are bullshit so I won't point out that he is at 49% approval rating right now. None of that matters. The only poll that matters is on election day. When that day comes Donald Trump will have a record of solid achievement that will insure his reelection.

You can see it coming a mile away. The economy. Jobs coming back. Money being repatriated because of the changes in tax laws. Massive investments like the one China is making in West Virginia. America becoming a net energy exporter. Soon infrastructure spending targeted at red states instead of the blue states that we need to write off as dead losses.
