Good luck with that. Trump's having his insanity limelight stolen by Lindsay Graham, and all know how Trump hates not being the center of attention. Eruptions to follow, and soon.

Advisers worry that Trump's actions may damage or potentially derail struggling Republicans, particularly those in swing districts populated by independent and moderate GOP voters who have turned away from Trump. 

The Trump freak show rolls on - bring on the mid-terms.

"I try and tell my people,

My people = Cult45ists

I have some very fine people that are running in close races

He has? He owns them? He's referring to members of Congress as if they're horses in his stable.

Given the lewd things you've been posting, I will never click on these videos.

U.S. is in the middle of a cultural civil war

Once again you're pushing the RT message.

The President is not knowing for holding back. Especially when it comes to women.

MAGA - Make America Grope Again!

Hold back? What for? He's been too much of a gentleman about this sordid episode, I want him to take the gloves off.

Gloves on or off, his grubby fingerprints are all over this despicable affair. He can't resist going after women, be they porn stars, teen beauty pageants or adversaries.

Absolute slime.

the author obviously hasn't faced up to the fact that Trump won the Presidency because of his attitude and mouth

Because? I think you mean "in spite of".

Expect less respect for women as the Trump circus continues its big top of disrespect, lies and silencing said women.

I find that having a baggy of treats always on hand is the key. Whenever he looks like he is going to cause trouble, perhaps with another sexist remark or self-interested action, just shake the baggy to get his attention and then throw one in the spare room (assuming they have one in the White House) and close the door. That should buy enough time since he has a short attention span and by the time he is finished the treat he'll probably have forgotten what he was going to do.

What does it say about Trump when his best chance of helping his party win the election is: "Sir, take all of your immediate impulses and do the exact opposite for the next two months."

at least he owned to it.

No he didn't, he lied about it repeatedly until undeniable evidence was shown, at which point he stopped talking about it.

the margin of error with the Democrats.

The Republicans are the ones who are trying to hold Trump back as mentioned in this article. Not the democrats.

But you're not disgusted by the disgusting antics of the Democrats?

Trump's advisers who are trying to hold him back are not Democrats. Mueller is also not Democrat.

Another anti Trump article, the author obviously hasn't faced up to the fact that Trump won the Presidency because of his attitude and mouth. He has actually done a lot of things that he said he would do, that will have a huge positive impact on the Mid terms.

Can't agree more. We conservatives know it was his mouth and attitude, not some archaic voting system that has benefitted us conservatives three times. Trump, like for his own birth, is solely responsible for his win. The popular vote backs up that assertion.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

But at least he admits he loves women.

Uh, any man who truly loves women, RESPECTS THEM. Trump lacks the capacity to truly respect others regardless of sex.

The GOP and Trumps antics have made me choose to vote straight democrat this upcoming election. That's just how utterly disgusted I am by what is currently going on in this nation due to it.

I've never voted a straight ticket in my life, that should be enough of an alarm to just how bad it truly is.

Good luck! Nobody puts Trump in a corner, nobody. Let him help us win thf midterms like he won the presidency. Keep swinging and talking, President Trump!

Too late! The American voters want the Republicans OUT.

Hold back? What for? He's been too much of a gentleman about this sordid episode, I want him to take the gloves o

Yep. Glad someone's holding down the conservative fort whilst I'm away. It's absolutely ridiculous to wait to fire Rosenstein and end this Mueller (only how many convictions?) circus. It's the president's right (Art I, Section II) to interfere with any investigation.

According to polls, right? We know how accurate the polls were in 2016, hehe

Oh my...

Oh my, indeed! Us conservatives know that only polls favorable to us are accurate, which 2016 is solid proof of.

There is a choice this election cycle.

If you want to stop Trump, vote so the dems have a majority in either part of congress.

OR

If you want Trump to continue, vote so the repubs retain a majority in both parts of congress.

I'm a fan of deadlocked politicians. It limits the damage they can do, but it also prevents undoing prior damage done the last 18 yrs.

There are pros and cons with each choice. There's no way to know which will actually be better overall. Without a majority in the Senate, trade treaties are likely not possible and the Supreme Court will have vacancies.

Absolute slime.

But at least he admits he loves women. There are other sneakier politicians that don’t say anything at least he owned to it. Lol

Yeah, we shall see once Kavanaugh is on the bench how the left will continue to whine and grovel and still won’t understand why it all blew up in their face.....once again.

Uh, any man who truly loves women, RESPECTS THEM.  Trump lacks the capacity to truly respect others regardless of sex. 

Some may say that, now I could 20 liberals that absolutely don’t respect men or women, the only difference is, they’re sneakier.

The GOP and Trumps antics have made me choose to vote straight democrat this upcoming election. That's just how utterly disgusted I am by what is currently going on in this nation due to it. 

Good and me and my family will continue to vote Republican and more so than ever after watching the hearings and I’m not going to vote for anyone wanting more regulations, higher taxes, PC and identified politics being the forced law of the land, NEVER!

I've never voted a straight ticket in my life, that should be enough of an alarm to just how bad it truly is.

Ok I understand and?

Last years’ budget deficit was over $1 trillion! This level of deficit spending is built into the budget because non-discretionary spending dwarfs the rest of the budget. Interest payments are growing ever larger as the economy grows and interest rates rise. No politician even pretends to care about it. In fact they are wanting more - especially Dems.

Trump and both parties in Congress are fighting over unprovable nearly 4 decade old allegations alleging a supreme court nominee raped, gang raped, and attempted to murder women. Meanwhile the country is failing to pieces around them. It’s like living in an episode of the Twilight Zone.

Democrats have to be going nuts, while they are busy doing a character assassination of Cavanugh, Trump makes an agreement replacing NAFTA ( Not A Free Trade Agreement ) Haha

-6 ( +0 / -6 )

You say that, but I could name EIGHTY conservatives that hate women and don't respect them

Hmmm....If that were the case, they would have never won the election or gain seats or even stay within the margin of error with the Democrats.

"Trump's advisers try to get him to hold back"

Hold back? What for? He's been too much of a gentleman about this sordid episode, I want him to take the gloves off.

"But with 35 days to go before midterm elections that look increasingly challenging for Republicans" 

According to polls, right? We know how accurate the polls were in 2016, hehe

Oh my...
