Trump will get re-elected, this is just another Mueller investigation type waste of tax payers money!

Whatever helps the Dems sleep at night thinking they'll remove Trump from office and reverse an election!

How is impeaching Trump reversing an election? I don't get that argument since Pence would be the President and the Republicans would obviously still be in charge of the Executive Branch.

Gay marriage is just a reality. Get over it.

We've already established that he does not know what "coup" means.

My favorite is the Paradise Post article. It definitely shows exactly how tolerate the current republican party is:

Democrats say they’re more tolerant than Republicans, but if you really are looking for tolerance, you’re way more likely to find it among people who identify with the GOP, the party of Trump. They’ll tolerate damn near anything so long as it carries Trump’s brand. No idea is off limits, no lie too outrageous, no moronic utterance too stupid, no tweet too weird, no breach of ethics or morality too great for the Republican Party or its deplorable base to question.
Fair. That one slipped through. I read through the first few

EDIT: Deleted for mis-quote. The entire article is full of crap anyways.

I think a lot of people are scared that its a step in the wrong direction. Give an inch, they take a mile. Thats what it feels to the "you're not taking my guns" crowd.

This was a policy started by Obama, the current administration was simply upholding the law as it was written.



Again, this was an obama-era law that was put into effect. If you have a problem with it, check with him.

Are you referring to Epstein? The one who was a strong supporter of the democrats? The one who was photographed numerous times with Clinton?



He's certainly had more than his fair share of mis-information. What does that have to do with tolerance?



Again, this has nothing to do with tolerance. Please let me know what part of the constitution has been violated, and proven in court.



I think you need to double-check your numbers here. Again, this has nothing to do with the original comment.



The republicans condemned these remarks, publicly, back in 2016. It seems you're hell bent on trump, not the party itself.



This is straight off the CNN presses. The statement was taken out of context and pushed into meaning something it wasn't. Suggest you read the whole transcript.

https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-m...sides-remarks/



Again, straight CNN talking point here. It was shown multiple times that Trump has used this same imitation with others dating back to 2005, it had nothing to do with the fact that the reporter was disabled. Feel free to look it up. There are videos everywhere.



You're still focusing on trump here, instead of the supporters/party. I thought this was about tolerance?

Either way, this was an optics game for Trump, keep your enemy's closer kind of thing.



"Armgate" as they like to call it, was completely driven by MSM. If you have any evidence that it was anything more than MSM trying to stir up faux-outrage, please let me know.



A whole whopping 2 shutdowns, centered around the same issue. Obama had 1 as well, Bill Clinton had 2.



So the gunman mentions trump in his manifesto, and all the sudden its Trumps fault? C'mon. You can't be that brainwashed.
Who are you addressing? I didn't write it...

You need to work on your delivery, its been getting repetitive for months.

1) Question source
2) Compare to "trump supporters"
3) throw insult.

Facts are repetitive? Your insult is a bit more imaginative that ADC or Silent or MK, but your core arguments are flawed. As they always are when you unquestionably support the orange snowflake/liar in chief.

Show me these facts you speak of.

Also, I do not "blindly" support Trump. I suggest you dig back through my history in politics.

But you wont do that, because you're just trying to get under peoples skin, like a typical troll.

Its ok to admit it, I enjoy a good rouse from time to time.

This is one of the biggest things I feel has been the downfall during this administration. The extremely polarized atmosphere that just seems to get worse. You can blame it on the Left, you can blame it on the Right, but does it really matter? Its a combination of the vocal minority that exists on the edges of both the right and left that are driving the political dissonance in this country.

You're the one using the word troll. Why dont you show me when you haven't been lock step with Trump. You'll probably have to dig deep.....
I've posted many times supporting Trump policy and/or personnel decisions. I'll dig them up if you want me to. I dare you to do the same, vis a vis any negative Trump positions.

I was making a joke. I know where I stand politically and it's pretty close to the middle.

Politics today is a little like a Star Trek convention.

Most people who go will get an autograph and let the actors know they are fans of their work, but they realize that other franchises exist outside of Star Trek. These are regular American citizens.

Then there are the people who show up dressed like the characters with Spock tattoos and kids named Kirk and Uhura. Even the actors (the politicians) think these people are nuts.

The latter is what is wrong with politics today: A complete failure to acknowledge anything outside of your singular party or see anything objectively.

Don't knock Star Trek! Why not pick on the Star Wars people. Of all days to make that statement, right after Bill Shatner gets divorced..........
