As a conservative living in Loudoun County I always dread getting the Loudoun Times-Mirror knowing there will almost always be a negative article or comment about Donald Trump. So I was very surprised when I saw the "Not the time or place" editorial. But the surprise did not last for long. The article begins by telling us that it was inappropriate for Del. Ibraheem Samirah (D) to protest our president's attendance at the 400th anniversary event of our country's first legislative body – the Virginia House of Burgesses.

I had to do a double-take and check what paper I was reading. But it didn't take long for the author to start the never-ending bashing of the president. By the sixth paragraph (How did the author control themselves to wait that long?) they mention what they considered the president's "vile comments about the great city of Baltimore … ” What the author forgets to mention is that similar "vile" comments about Baltimore have been made by none other than the former mayor of Baltimore, Catherine Pugh, who complained about the rats and the smell of dead animals.

"What the hell? We should just take all this s**t down," Pugh said after touring parts of the city. And Rep. Elijah Cummings himself called parts of the city "drug-infested.” So my question for the author of the article is, "Were the comments by Ms. Pugh and Mr. Cummings also 'vile?'”

Is it in the realm of possibility in the minds of you president-hating liberals that the statements by Trump and Ms. Pugh and Mr. Cummings might just be facts that you just prefer to ignore for the liberals but criticize for the president? It seems there is never a time or place in the Loudoun Times-Mirror that is inappropriate to unjustly bash President Trump.

Very interesting comments section, it must be beat up and slam workhard day. Davy boy and american girl were particularly vicious. I am not as articulate as these people, but if were to referee this little scquabble and score it as a contest based on facts and truthfulness I would have to name workhard, by far, the winner. The rest, pure bull. A reduction in name calling might gain american girl and davy boy a point or two over their score of zero. I'm just a red neck hick from the hills so I guess someone gangs up on me now, have a nice day.





amerigirl

Guess you are a 'red neck hick from the hills' and not a judge. You are pretty impartial. Your bias shows when you continue to use denigrating nicknames. Obviously you don't know the real facts or the truth. Maybe you should fact check what each person said before you make those kind of statements. I hope you really don't think that your opinion matters to me. It doesn't, you ignore the truth and the facts and make judgments anyway.


bboop

Amerigirl, Benghazi was NOT bad Intel. Your are believing more lies about something you know nothing about..beyond the lies aka coverup. Please research or read the book from one of the heroes who emerged from the deadly 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, Kris “Tanto” Paronto. You will have a different perspective on what actually happened. Facts matter.


amerigirl

Facts matter. The original report of why Benghazi happened was bad intel, Obama was told it was in response to the attacks grew out of a nearby mob that was protesting an anti-Islam film, The Innocence of Muslims. This conclusion, the CIA later decided, was wrong: the people initially believed to be protesters were actually a loose group of Islamic militants who had shown up at the mission with the intent to attack it. How about you look at the finding by the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee has found that the CIA and the military acted properly in responding to the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and asserted no wrongdoing by Obama administration appointees. It was collaborated by six previous investigations by various congressional committees and a State Department panel. Parento can tell you what happened to him but he can’t tell you why it happened. Yes he was a hero.


amerigirl

Workhard, what is with you republicans always calling names? I just don’t get it. It seems like something that elementary school kids do. After all the volunteer work I have done in schools that’s all I can think it could be. Energy independence? Surely you jest? We still use more than we produce, check PolitiFact, when trump said the United States is "very energy independent." They stated it was “premature to label the United States energy independent given that Americans consumed more energy than the country produced”. It has been getting closer for decades now. If trump wasn’t so stupid to make comments like windmills cause cancer, there is a chance we would be there already. But his crony’s are in big oil and coal. Ya know, those things that will run out someday. WOW I can’t believe you said That's like the Demoocrat energy plan, Wind, Solar and MAKE BELIEVE. That is total ignorance, absolutely total ignorance. Why do you think that energy plans can’t involve both parties or has to be political? Is it the republicans want to back to the good old days when they had to issue smog alerts? Aspen, Colorado; Greensburg, Kansas; Burlington, Vermont; Kodiak Island, Alaska; and Rock Port, Missouri energy is100 percent renewables. I bet you would much rather pay their next to nothing energy bills that what you pay now. That isn’t even counting the Green Power Communities (GPCs). GPCs are towns, villages, cities, counties, or tribal governments in which the local government, businesses, and residents collectively use green power in amounts that meet or exceed EPA's Green Power Community usage requirements. You aren’t going to get any of the money that trump is going to make from his friends benefiting from fossil fuels, the only thing you can get is some type of lung issue.


amerigirl

Workhard, what makes you think just because someone works in an administration that they have the same opinions on everything? If Obama thought that about Beau Bergdahl why did he refuse to give him a pardon?











What makes Obama a coward? A true coward is president bone-spurs, too afraid to be in the military during the draft that he made up lies to get 5 draft deferrals. He told Howard Stern that avoiding sexually transmitted diseases was like his "personal Vietnam." Then has the nerve to say the things he said about John McCain? Even Walsh from his own party called him a coward. A coward is someone that tweets nasty things because he doesn’t have the nerve to pick up the phone or face them. Conservatives use the work coward all the time now, why? Does it make them feel superior?











If you want to see trump’s lies there are many sites that list the and explains why they are lies.. Don’t expect DavisB to list what would take many pages to do, do it yourself. You might learn something.


workhardgetahead

Amerigirl, totally ridiculous argument. Obama had Bergdahl's parents the White House. What a joke!! He didnt pardon him because he knew the reaction he'd get from the military community who already hated him.



Yes, Obama is a coward. He was an anti military President. He cut and run from Iraq. He gave Iran Billions on a crap Nuke deal. He did waves with Raul Castro and let Putin take the Crimea. He is the worst President History and it's not even a contest. He makes Jimmy Carter looks like Winston Churchill.



Trump run circles around your savior Obama.



Anyone who thinks differently are ignorant to the facts and are intellectually dishonest.


amerigirl

Oh yeah, now trump is thinking of entering the Iran negotiations again, which would extend them a $15 billion dollar credit line to come back into compliance with the Obama-era nuclear deal. The only reason he got out of it in the first place is because he is so jealous of Obama.


workhardgetahead

Trump reentering the Iran talks? That's like the Demoocrat energy plan, Wind, Solar and MAKE BELIEVE.


amerigirl

It was Bush who made the agreement with Iraq on the withdrawal date with Iraq, not Obama. It was a coalition of countries that went into the Iran deal, not just Obama, to keep them from producing nuclear weapons or even getting the materials necessary. Then trump pulled out and they now have what they wanted all along. So now trump wants to make a new deal. Also do you realize that trump was trying to get hotel built in Cuba while we had sanctions on them? It was Obama who tried to close Gitmo. As reporter Carole Rosenberg wrote in The New York Times, the total cost in 2018 for housing just 40 prisoners, paying the guards, and running the military tribunals there is somewhere north of $540 million, or roughly $13 million per prisoner. That is your tax dollars at work. Obama is already listed as one of the top presidents in history, trump in under an impeachment and many other investigations and will probably go down as the worse president ever. The only person who says Obama let Russia take Crimea is trump, the pathological liar. As Politifact states, "Virtually the entire global community refused to recognize the annexation, which was the first such takeover in Europe since the end of the Cold War." It was Obama who look the lead to have Russia thrown out of the G* for doing that. Trump couldn't run circles around anything, he would use a golf cart. You have a total ignorance of the facts when it comes to trump, my guess you always will, even when everything he has done to destroy our democracy has been proven.


jke

I will vote for Trump again, racist my a$$!


amerigirl

Are you publicly saying you are going to vote for a racist? If you can't see that he is you must be blind. Even his "African American" friend left the party as has a lot to say about trumps racism.


workhardgetahead

Energy Independence Baby!! TRUMP 2020!!



Wont even waste my time watch Sleepy Joe, the Fake Indian and the Communist from Vermont Duke it out.



Mind is made up KAG!!


workhardgetahead

I just saw an Aftican American actor just left the Democrat party. Isaiah Washington announced last week he was leaving the Democratic party because they no longer served his interest. What you got to say about that Amerigirl?



You know African American unemployment is at a record low. Trump gas a lot to do with that rather you like it or not.


amerigirl

Workhard, First when did Obama lie? Second, how do you not know how much trump lies? It is so well documented, over 12,000, an average of 12 times a day, since he took office. Please tell me you don’t think he is telling his base the truth. Here are a few examples: Hurricane headed to Alabama, lie. "Yesterday we had the strongest dollar in the history of our country," It was not even close lie. "Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election!", complete lie. Says Pennsylvania chemical plant and Louisiana liquified natural gas plant "could never have happened" without his administration. Which was underway before he was in office. Democrats "want virtual immunity for illegal aliens who have created horrible crimes and murder." Democrats target violent criminals. "Mexico, they took 30% of our automobile business." No U.S. plants closed and moved to Mexico Says Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "called our country and our people garbage." Lying garbage. Says that when his supporters chanted "send her back" about Ilhan Omar, he stopped it. When he encouraged it. Says Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was "speaking about how wonderful al-Qaida is." Which never happened. "The Obama administration was begging for a meeting" with Kim Jong Un. When Obama refused to meet with him. The United Kingdom is "our largest (trading) partner." , it’s China. Tariffs are "paid for mostly by China, by the way, not by us.". The importer pays the tariff so it is the companies in the US that are passing the cost on to us. With a late-term abortion, "the mother meets with the doctor. They take care of the baby, they wrap the baby beautifully. And then the doctor and the mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby." Grossly distorts painful choice. "The FBI said (former national security adviser Michael Flynn) wasn't lying." After Flynn admitted to lying. Says that at Beto O’Rourke’s rally in El Paso, there were "200 people, 300 people.", because he has to make people believe his rallies are the biggest, pictures prove him wrong. "58,000 non-citizens voted in Texas, with 95,000 non-citizens registered to vote.". Not a word of t=truth. "We are not even into February and the cost of illegal immigration so far this year is $18,959,495,168. Cost Friday was $603,331,392. There are at least 25,772,342 illegal aliens, not the 11,000,000 that have been reported for years, in our Country.", there were no studies, he made the whole thing up. I can go on and on. Would you like a list of stupid things, like walking past his car and asking where it was?


workhardgetahead

Blah blah,blah, you sound like a broken record.



Obama lies. If you like your Doctor you can keep your doctor



If you like your health plan you can keep you health plan



Benghazi was caused by a You Tube Video.



Beau Bergdahl serve his country honorably and with distiction.



Not a smidgeon of corruption occured during



IRS scandal.



Those are just a few examples. I wont blather about garbage. The examples I provided are FACTS!!


amerigirl

Blah, blah, blah, sounds so childish. He did try to make it that way on the health plan, Benghazi was bad intel, and was corrected. The comment about Beau Bergdshl was made by National Security Adviser Susan Rice on ABC’s This Week, not Obama. The IRS was had nothing to do with anything Obama said or did. I am talking directly from the mouth of the person saying it. Trump is a pathological liar. Most of what he says is garbage to build up his own ego,


workhardgetahead

Ok, Susan Rice was the NSA for Obama. Which means not only did she think but probably so did the administration



Beau Bergdahl is not honorable. He's a deserter and a coward, a coward Just like Obama


amerigirl

Romano. Everyone should know by now that tramp is a racist. Religious leaders at the Washington National Cathedral issued a rare public statement in response to President Donald Trump’s divisive, racist taunts and rhetoric, calling on Americans to hold him, and all their leaders, more accountable for their words. “Make no mistake about it, words matter. And, Mr. Trump’s words are dangerous,” the statement reads. “As faith leaders who serve at Washington National Cathedral—the sacred space where America gathers at moments of national significance—we feel compelled to ask: After two years of President Trump’s words and actions, when will Americans have enough?” You should have looked up why Obama sat in that church for 20 years, starting with his sermons were not like that until after 9/11. When Wright's comments were aired in the national media, Obama distanced himself from them, saying to Charles Gibson of ABC News, "It's as if we took the five dumbest things that I've ever said or you've ever said in our lives and compressed them and put them out there — I think that people's reaction would, understandably, be upset. At the same time, Obama stated that "words that degrade individuals have no place in our public dialogue, whether it's on the campaign stump or in the pulpit. He said he was "outraged" and "saddened" by his behavior, and he resigned his membership in the church





workhardgetahead

Yea, I've had enough of 3.7 unemployment, had enough of over 6 million being off food stamps, I've had enough of record low minority unemployment, I've had enough of the most people ever employed in the countries existence, I've had enough of lower gas prices, I've had enough of energy independence. I've had enough of the military being strong to protect my way of life, I've had enough of having more money in my paycheck etc etc etc.


DavisB

have you had enough of Trump's lies, stupidity and idiotic behavior? If not, then why not?


workhardgetahead

Lies, stupidity, and behavior? What are you referring to? What lies? Stupidity and idiotic behavior? Please give examples.


workhardgetahead

And to be clear, Socialism and Democratic politics are stupid and idiotic. And the last President to lie was Obama. I will await you examples of Trumps lies. And admittedly l, Trump is not a fine tuned politician but at least he means what he says and does what he says hes going to do. I'll take him over any Socialist the democrats put up against him


DavisB

Oh, Workhard, you have to be joking if you want anyone to list all the lies, stupidity and idiotic behavior here - there just is not room. Unless you truly don't believe that Trump lies, says and does stupid things, and acts like an idiot - in that case, I can only hope your children have been paying attention.


DavisB

not sure that socialist you are talking about, Workhard - please be specific and accurate - don't simply throw around labels without knowing what they mean




workhardgetahead

Davisb, I asked you to list not accusations and innuendo. If you cant list then please be quiet


workhardgetahead

DavisB, all candidates on the left are Socialist/Communist in one way or another. If you don't think so I hope YOUR children are paying attention


amerigirl

Then I guess it’s a bad thing that the unemployment rate stayed that low only because 25,000 jobs were added for the census. It has been on a steady decline since Obama pulled us out of the recession, along with lower minority unemployment. The average monthly gain under Trump so far is 197,000, compared with an average monthly gain of 217,000 during Obama’s second term. The unemployment rate was well below the historical norm when Trump took office. What makes you think that this is the lowest rate ever, or even 3.7%, trump tell you that? Remember he lies, a lot considering his current rate is 3.8, last year was 3.9% and the year before was 4.7%. Here are the rates that were lower, 1929 -3.2%, 1943 – 1.9%, 1944 – 1.4%, 1945 – 1.9%, 1947 – 3.6%, 1951- 3.1%, 1952 – 2.7%. The sad part Is that home prices have gone up by 9.9% making it harder for new buyers to afford. He had nothing to do with gas prices. If you are getting more in your paycheck then maybe you got a raise. It has lowered many of the middle classes income and they have had to have they’re with holding increased to cover it.
















DavisB

tell me how reporting on Trump insisting the hurricane continued to threaten Alabama is bashing and not simply pointing out how much of a "Trump" he is?


amerigirl

Are you ready for this? He created a task force, small but still a task force, not to help the people that have been devastated by the hurricane, but to prove that he was right about Alabama. Couldn't make the trip to Poland because he wanted to keep an eye on the hurricane, from his golf course it seems. Then congratulated the Poles, I guess for being invaded?


amerigirl

Workhard, if it had been Obama who declared a state of emergency so he could steal money for his pet projects they would have been calling a code blue for you. What is it that you believe allows him to take money from the army on false number claims? As it has been said “This is plainly a power grab by a disappointed president, who has gone outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the constitutional legislative process”. If you know how the system works then you also know that it is not up to the Supreme Court. If this is to protect us why is he telling people to break the law and he would pardon them? Can you imagine if Obama ever came close to doing such a thing, but he is a law-abiding citizen, trump never has been. Also, I hope you realize that was sarcasm on congress not having the power of the purse, the truth part was that trump thinks it is all his to spend. He’s on track to spend $340,000,000 of taxpayer’s money on golfing alone, and he criticized Obama for golfing. He reached Obama’s 8 year golfing money spent in less than 3 years.





workhardgetahead

Sounds like Obama when he signed DACA.



Obama a law abiding citizen? Huh you should open for Dave Chapelle!!



You still havent answered the question about Obama buying a waterfront home on Cape Cod. Aren't the sea levels rising from Climate Change? Oh, thats right, he stopped that.



Trump has a obligation to protect the American people. Congress allotted the military and other agency's a certain amount of money. Once allocated by congress President Trump is fully permitted to move those allotted funds around as he see's fit.



Too bad those funds werent moved sooner. Maybe those rapes by the illegals in Montgomery county could have been prevented or didnt you hear about those?


LetsBreal

Oh, you mean like Obama stealing $716 Billion from Medicare as seed money for Obamacare. I doubt workers having FICA confiscated from their pay did so with the understanding that the money would be taken to start up Obamacare. BTW, the FIFO ponzi schemes of Social Security and Medicare are both going bankrupt according to the trustees of those two programs, or didn't you hear? Please don't lecture us on power grabs: I seem to remember Obama, Tim Geithner and Steven Rattner deciding the UAW will own 90% of GM even though the bondholders had the legal rights to the company. BTW, Goldman Sachs was a top donor to Obama while this money was being stolen by the last administration. You're a little short on history.


amerigirl

On be real, that’s just another republican rewrite of history. The cuts in the future growth of spending prolong the life of the Medicare trust fund, stretching the program’s finances out longer than they would last otherwise. Without the spending cuts in the Affordable Care Act, the Part A trust fund was expected to be exhausted in 2016. With the ACA cuts, that date was pushed back to 2024. The biggest savings from the Affordable Care Act come from reductions in the future growth of payments to hospitals about $415 billion over 10 years. That’s Medicare Part A. Income for Part A comes mainly from payroll taxes. If Medicare doesn’t need to spend that income immediately, it’s credited to Part A’s trust fund, which they can cash out at any time. The president can’t actually take money out of the trust fund. Medicare holds those Treasury bonds. Not to mention that at the time Medicare only had $244.2 billion.








LetsBreal

I keep hearing "this time it's different" and we're not treating Trump like other Republican presidents. But I remember Bush being called "chimpy" and dumb, being accused of all sorts of things vis-a-vis Iraq and the left making a fantasy movie in 2006 called "Death of a President" about the assassination of GWB. There were the usual whines by Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan about everything under the sun including Gitmo even being open and soldiers burning Qurans (plus Al Gore ranting on about a "stolen election" in between jaunting around on private jets selling carbon credits). When Reagan was president, the left accused him of being a war monger and accused him of stealing the election by paying off Iran for the return of hostages 53 after 444 days. Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy even tried to collude with the Kremlin to blunt Reagan's initiatives. This time around, it's been elevated to shooting at GOP house members at a baseball game and a comedian cutting off Trump's head in effigy. Are progressives and democrats really still going to try to sell us on "it's different this time" just to continue a struggle for power? Review history and you'll realize anytime the democrat party doesn't occupy the White House, we experience wave after wave of tantrums. That alone is enough for me to vote for Trump again in 2020!


amerigirl

Do you remember how Obama was treated or do you think just republican presidents are victims of free speech? Obama was treated much, much worse. That shooter was a nut case and every democrat said so. As far as wave after wave of tantrums, that happens to most presidents from the opposing party. Obama had it the worse. You talk about a comic gutting off his head, well it was a comic, but those people who were serious and carried posters of Obama being lynched, dresses as a witch doctor and Michelle as an ape. How about the "joker" poster or the ones that claimed he was a thief because he was black? The amount of death threats was phenomenal. But you are just dragging up too much history to try to make a moot point. .


workhardgetahead

Yea right, Did Obama have 95% negative media coverage? He had the opposite. He was actually asked by a CNN reporter and I think it was James Acosta , what enchants you to this job? What a joke!!! The Obama presidency was a joke!! Does that make me racist that I thought his presidency was a joke? I would of voted for Condi Rice over Obama 24x7, 365. I'd vote for her now over any of the Socialist clowns that are running on the Democrat side. Oh, speaking of Obama, what's your thought of him purchasing a 15 million mansion on Cape Cod? According to the Climate Change experts I thought Cape Cod was going to be underwater in a few years. Only proves the elitist like to say "Do as I say, not as I do". They are all frauds!!


romano

Obama was a pure, stone cold racist. Why else would he have sat in Jeremiah Wright's anti-white and anti-American church for 20 years? No one attends a church when they don't like the message it preaches. He was never held accountable for that, the media never pressed him on it. Stone cold racist.


Just Me

Sorry to say; but, if we want to bash the "president" of the United States, we can. That's what makes this country a democracy...we have the right to our opinion, we have the right to speak our minds, and we have a right to have a discussion without anyone else threatening our lives. However, I'm wondering if anyone of you is going to realize that the "president" is just thinking that the country is his own private corporation? All his actions have consequences.


amerigirl

.and that tax payer money isn't controlled by congress, it's all his to spend as he sees fit.


workhardgetahead

Really? Congress has the power of the purse. Maybe you didn't know that, you should take US Government 101.


amerigirl

workhard, what I'm saying is that trump is stealing the power of the purse, taking money from the area it is allotted to is not in his realm of powers. But he does it.


workhardgetahead

He is permitted to do that in the name of protecting the American public, something you take for granted. If he wasnt permitted then the supreme court would of said so. Now quit your whining.


amerigirl

workhardgetahead and your comments including "Racist, Racist, Racist!!! Thank you for proving my point" shows that you are so normalized with the racism that you don't even recognize that it is racism. .




Chris McHale

Sorry but if the LTM wants to bash the President in a one sided affair they are free to do so. I've given LTM no credibility on any of their national reporting. I read it for local news and to make snarky comments.


workhardgetahead

Give them heck Lorraine!!! Amerigirl and Lawman will be coming out very soon calling you a Hitler Lover, a White Supremacist and racist. These terms have been watered down from their overuse. KAG 2020 4 More years!!!!!


RoundHillGuy

Correcto, I hear the term racists thrown out so often by dems that it no longer holds any significance. Everyone who does not agree with the victimized person of the day is a racists. You don't agree with LGBTQ views- Racists, you don't believe laws should be enforced- racists. You say all lives matter- racists, and on and on it goes until it means nothing.


amerigirl

Maybe because there are so many racist republicans. Just you choice of words shows that all too well. You choose to call minorities fighting for equal, not better than, but equal rights as victimized. They are not victims but people fighting for equality.




romano

Fear not, Lorraine..the omnipresent bashing of President Trump by 95% of the media won't be enough. These folks still have not figured out why Trump was elected. The media are making all the same mistakes, the now-meaningless race card, constant bashing, etc. Exactly why so many pushed the button for Trump in 2016. It really is hard to believe that they have not learned the lessons, but to our delight and benefit, they haven't. A responsible media would have their hands full ridiculing what is an embarrassing lineup of Dem candidates. Four more years coming.


amerigirl

You call it bashing but try and point out a couple of things they have reported that were wrong or lies. The media isn’t what is going to make him lose the election. It is that he wants to be a dictator, only do what he wants, get rid of other parts of the government that go against his wishes. We are a democracy, there are suppose to be checks and balances, he doesn’t want that. How stupid do you have to be to vote for someone who thinks they are GOD, says terms like “King of Israel” and “the second coming of God,” in the latest of a series of inflammatory comments about Jews, citing Wayne Allyn Root, considered a “conspiracy theorist. He is out of touch with reality and his followers act like a cult. He accused Jewish people who vote for Democrats of “disloyalty”, who is he to speak for them? Then he says “I am the chosen one” and turns and looks at the sky. OMG what was he expecting, Gods hand to reach out to him? Just delusional. He will be his own undoing, locking babies in cages and denying them the basics, his support for white nationals, spending 340,000,000 of tax payers money golfing, having affairs right after his wife gave birth and covering it up with hush money, breaking the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution (on multiple fronts like doubling the cost of membership to his club). His racist comments should stop any black (they are too stupid to vote for me), Latino (the are criminals, rapist), Muslims (Muslim ban) etc. The only button they should push for him is for electroshock therapy. He is one sick, sick man and he is going down hill fast.























workhardgetahead

Racist, Racist, Racist!!! Thank you for proving my point.


DavisB

you call it bashing but you ignore the ignorance of Trump


workhardgetahead

If a 3.6 Unemployment rate is part of being ignorant then I'm all in. I guess its ignorant for wanting a strong military, I guess its ignorant to want more my money in my pocket and I guess I'm ignorant for wanting my 401K to grow. SIGN ME UP!!


DavisB

I can quick and easily understand the conversation about how much or little and presidential actions impact the economy. I cannot image how anyone can ignore the behavior and words of this president. For instance, referring himself as the chosen one, claiming he has lost billions of dollars while being president, accusing American Jews of being disloyal if they vote democrat, joking about trading Puerto Rico for Greenland. And this is just this month?? How does anyone ignore and even accept this side of Trump? And if someone is ignoring or accepting of this behavior, how close are they to celebrating it?


DavisB

anyone read the article about Trump asking if we can nuke hurricanes? Tell me again how we are bashing the guy


workhardgetahead

There is no Muslim ban!!


amerigirl

Not for lack of trying


workhardgetahead

Locking 'Babies' In cages were started by your lord and savior Obama


amerigirl

If anyone thinks he is Lord and Savior it is trump, “the second coming”, “the chosen one”, the king of Israel”. Try a little fact checking. According to snopes President Donald Trump (falsely) pinned the blame for the child-separation policy on his predecessor, Barack Obama. The 2 pictures that you conservatives have were during a spike in the number of unaccompanied children fleeing violence in Central American countries. The biggest difference between Obama and trump is that Obama fixed the problem as fast as possible and trump just keeps adding more and more kids to the facilities. The detainees under Obama were treated humanely and processed as quickly as possible, you can’t even come close to saying that about trump. He forces 2 and 3 year olds, kids still in diapers, to go to court as if they even understood what was going on.
