I’m still trying to figure out how this is news, I mean the guy is nowhere as big as William Taft was. Wish these liberal pundits would relax. But given his family history of good genes, he should live his life the way he wants, the Democrats give him a great workout.

Yes, let's not do anything about it. Typical Republican thought process; people get shot up in school, at concerts, going to church, and when more people die, you send your thoughts and prayers.
Yes, tell that to the hunters and people that need gun for their daily lives. Can’t always count on the police, can’t count on the Democrats especially on the border....
Thanks, but I’ll keep my guns.
And as predicted, he turned out to be yet another elitist billionaire who's been enriching the richest of the rich.
Here we go, being rich is so bad. Lol
The big difference this time round, is his stunning lack of empathy, his serial lying, his treatment of women and his out and out racism. (Not to mention his love of dictators, hatred of the free press and selling out the US to Russian interests)...
I would think with the history of racism that has plagued the Democrats and especially now that is more evident in VA. you would think the Democrats would talk more about this problem they have, but they don’t, they do however like to point the finger at conservatives for some reason always.
Not all Trump voters bought into that. Not all Trump voters were or are bigots.
Not all liberals are bigots believe it or not.

The big opiod drug bust was at a port of entry where a wall would not help at all. You guys just can't accept reality. Carry on with the hyperbolic inaccuracies.
Yes, let’s not do anything about it. Typical liberal think process, keep the borders open and let everyone and all drugs in and when more people die, make the excuse and tell the parents you did all you could.....whatever that means in liberal terminology and say, “what difference does it make?” But i know a single liberal won’t meet with the parents who have lost loved ones, can’t do that now.

I hate to point out the obvious but the migrants (not illegals, they haven't done anything illegal by seeking asylum) are Americans. That's right; the Americas isn't just the USA.
They can go anywhere they like, if they want to come to the US, please do so legally, we can’t and don’t need to take loads and loads of caravans and we can’t even take care of our own. Yes, the Democrats are really showing how much they care about border security.
As for the nonsense about Democrats liking drugs - you'll have to be more clear and specific. Every time you or I down a beer - that's a form of drug taking.
Look at our pourous border, the border the Dems say there’s no crisis, the same border where we had one of the biggest opioid drug busts in history.
-4 ( +1 / -5 )
Same as they ever did. Thousands fleeing persecution in Europe in the 1930s came to seek asylum in the US.
And they assimilated, they understand and learned the language and spoke English, you’re not seeing that now and also, you didn’t have asylum seekers trying to impose or unfurl their country of origin flags. They all came legally. My great grandparents came to this country “legally” so What do liberals have against that?
The America First movement demonised them, as well.
No, what it did was give recognition to the thousands of homeless that we have and need to care for which the last administration failed to do, it was everyone else, BUT Americans and I’m glad Trump is taking care of house first.
As I've said before, just wait until your govt tries military intervention in Venezuela. Then you'll get a crisis.
Only if Maduro decides to be hardheaded and tries to hold onto power.
-6 ( +1 / -7 )
Stop changing the subject, Bass. None of them are in favor of Trump's dumb wall.
Ok, that’s your opinion, you can tell me how many people don’t want it and I can show you the opposite and I really could care less what these Trump hating idiots in Washington are so desperately trying to indoctrinate to us.
If there really was a crisis,
why are none of them in favor of it? I guess none of them care about the districts and the constituents that elected them to office? totally ;)
Why aren’t Democrats for it, what changed, do they like drugs, they care more about illegals than Americans, they were worried about the opioid crisis and now they support it. Shame on them.
And if you had even bothered to read any of the links I posted, you'd see that, gasp, they were interviewed! Another sad attempt at deflection.
Back at you as well.
-6 ( +0 / -6 )
No Bass, I'm talking about the congresspeople who represent the 9 districts along the US border.
But funny how these politicians have been getting fatter pockets and the people who never get interviewed have little to say, as if they would know since they have all the security they need, they just have to deal with it and then liberals panic when they hear about opioid deaths, but want to legalize marijuana.....honestly, Democrats are all over the place. Unbelievable.
He very well may be.
Good luck spinning that one. Lol
-11 ( +0 / -11 )
Trump's speech tomorrow will be humiliating. He's going to have to once again try to tell the public his bogus story about the "humanitarian crisis" that no one believes outside of his base. Maybe he can get Pence to stand behind him to nod and clap at appropriate times to complete the drama. Some GOP senators will look into the camera and give their rehearsed lines to go along with the party, then we move on.
Maybe I am dreaming, but I think if the Democrats would go more along the border and open to all ages and videotape themselves with the border patrol and see what they have to do have the pundits invite them more on their talk shows the people could see for themselves even in Maine where thee people have zero idea as to what’s happening along the border. One thing the Democrats can’t do even with all their middle earth mystical powers, they can’t change video, they can’t change the words that came out of their mouths back in 2013 supporting a strong barrier, wall, fence, chicken coup...whatever. The Democrats try so hard to lie to their constituents into making them believe there is nothing going on and all of these crazy liberal pundits won’t even show many of the messages that were coming back from Mexico that support this president and his efforts to climb down on illegal immigration
-8 ( +1 / -9 )
Oh, I see Bass, very interesting. Is that why NONE of the politicians, Republican or Democrat, representing border territory are in favor of the dumb border wall? ;)
Yes, I do find it interesting that most of the people that are polled are either in Blue States...I think California would be one and spineless Republicans that are up for re-election and the same people on the socialist side that wanted the same thing in 2013, these Democrats say they care, but they don’t and even the mayor of TJ doesn’t get it, but I guess he’s a bigot as well, spin that
-11 ( +0 / -11 )
OK Bass - another question - he had both Houses of Congress for two years, and didn't do one thing to build the wall - why?
Good question, they should have, can’t defend that, but then again, these group of Republicans genetically related to chickens.
But also The Democrats had both Houses and didn’t do anything about DACA in the first year, why? Also they they supported the same exact thing the President supported back in 2013, but now they don’t, why? Don’t spin, please.
-8 ( +0 / -8 )
And all this over a wall supported by only 30% of Americans.
Funny, how most of the democrats were offered to go down to the border and they didn’t, where as the Republicans dig and could see right before the very eyes the lawlessness that was taking place as well as the apprehensions that were taking place, the Democrats say, they want to listen to the experts and yet, they don’t want to talk to the people that work day and night along the border, as well as DHS. You just can’t make this stuff up. As always the Dems move and shift the goal post as they please.

Whining? That's what Donnie does when his fellow conservatives insult and humiliate him...
Beacuse a majority of Amercians wanted those - and still do. A wall? See above - not so much...
Whining? When you turn on the TV the only thing that you see of the people that are whining of all liberals and Democrats, nonstop 24 hours seven days a week, whining, whining, whining...
More Texas stockyard BS - Donnie wanted a wall, that's all - he didn't want comprehensive reform. And he didn't want a wall until humiliated by Coulter and Rush in Dec ...
No, he wanted a wall but he didn’t want the Democrats to dictate to him the terms of how he can build it and what the limitations are and how it should be when you have so many stipulations in a bill like that, then it means nothing and still the dreamers got nothing. The Democrats once again screwed these people, just like they have every other minority, but they sure want their votes.
-10 ( +1 / -11 )
Parroting Trump, actually believing what he says. Trump's aping despots who've been able to convince their followers, most intellectually vulnerable and also fearful of their fellow citizens (look at the private arsenals many Trump backers have because of the number of 'thems' they're afraid of), that the nation's in a state of chaos, and the best way they can be protected is through the actions of a 'strong leader', who just so happens to be from their same demographic.
As to where you come up with this laughable falsehood is amusingly funny. Unlike the despots that believe being lead down the path of the pearly gates hall of socialism will in some way equal the playing field and bring prosperity are either THE most ignorant or THE most dumbest to believe such a fallacy.
Trump's a serial mendacimaniac. His 8,000+ (and counting) pinocchios well documented.
Yeah, amazing how the liberals pundits focused solely on his rants, but you don’t hear a word about a single Democrat, come on now....lol.
That a minority of Americans believe him says a lot about Trump's faith based backers, reinforcing the notion that 'Faith based approaches make a virtue of non-thinking'.
Minority, Yeah....the media keeps saying that and every single time, they’re proven wrong, every single time.

So lying to mueller is still the crime, and Ukraine not Russia is still the subject.
Funny how the Feds can lie their butts off to try and make a deal to make you sing, but if YOU do it, then it’s a serious crime, a felony.

So Manafort is now in trouble for talking to one of his former employee who’s......Russian?

Come on Trumpers - explain to us Liberals how going from $1.6 billion and 65 miles in Dec, to $1.37 billion and 55 miles in Feb is anything but a fail and a loss....less money, less fence.
But more options now that Pelosi conceded. Thank you, Mrs. Pelosi. No shame of doing something immoral
-7 ( +0 / -7 )
but you sound confident and content. To reinforce that, you should continue to post throughout the day about how awesome you feel, and I'm betting by the end of this thread you'll be the happiest you've been in a long time.
Well, I don’t need to harp on the President when I don’t have to, I love this President, what can I say. I went through this with Reagan and Bush as well, guess it goes with the territory. You guys do what you do and so shall I.
The power of the mind.
-9 ( +0 / -9 )
Then Trump tweets that the 55 miles of fence is the greatest thing any president has ever done.
No, he never said that, he’s just happy it’s something, that’s what a compromise is supposed to do.
Then his fans go out into the world and say that Trump just did the greatest thing any President has ever done.
No one I know said such a thing. Turn off CNN from time to time. It’s all done and we wait for the next move Trump will make to get additional money. Personally, I like the Ted Cruz proposal.
-7 ( +1 / -8 )
Lets take a minute and stop using the word "cave" and look at the facts.
You can’t spin the facts, both caved, both compromised and both got something, and not everything, it’s just tat simple.
Trumps approval rating (based on rasmussen who constantly gives him a generous number) was 55% at the beginning of his term, dropped to 50% now.
But it’s something, first it was a dollar and that would have gotten you a pebble.
He was offered 1.6 billion for border security, he's about to sign a deal for 1.4 billion now.
Pelosi didn't give Trump his wall. She agreed to 55 miles worth of funding for replacement/new fencing. Trump was asking for 2,000 miles worth of concrete pillars. Pretty big difference.
Semantics really, the end result is, he got money. Trump is not going to use that money to decorate the WH, so he will use that for....wait for it.....to hold a wall.
The 1 trillion a year plus deficit is back on track, and the middle class is being asked to pay more on their tax refunds (Trump said they would get money back).
I don't think Trump caved, I think Trump failed the country, and then some. I think he's set up the country to hurt a lot more than it was for a while.
I disagree, he did what he could, the Dems tried their best to stick it to him and it didn’t quite work out like that. Now I’m not saying it was a clear win, it wasn’t. But again, it’s better than nothing and at least now he has some wriggle room to work with.
-6 ( +1 / -7 )
Funny, Nancy just voted for 55 miles of “racist and immoral” how is she going to spin to her constituents she cav.....I mean, compromised?
-9 ( +1 / -10 )
Yes, Trump creates a frenzy that encourages outbursts at the media,
So you’re saying the media can’t control themselves, says a lot about them. Maybe they shouldn’t enter the profession.

What worries me is that if getting 3% of wall is a victory then Trump and his supporters will think getting rid of 3% of North Korea’s nukes is a victory.
No, because, we don’t have to worry about NK trying to sneak into the US.
These people are desperate for anything that can be called a “success” under Trump and KJI knows this by now
Ha! The Democrats didn’t even get ANY legislation through so far and how long have they've been in office? So for Democrats power means to try in vain to stop Trump, but forget about legislating for the people and forget their constituents.
-3 ( +1 / -4 )
...and thank you Mr Chump, for gutting environmental protections, giving tax breaks to the Top 1%,
...that provide jobs to the majority working class in some form or another.
decreasing unemployment for illegal immigrants by hiring them at Mar-A-Lago and your golf courses,
....compared to the millions of illegals in CA and NY that’s pennies.
empowering white supremacists (some are good people),
....compared to the racists and sexual predators the Dems have in just ONE State, supporting a radical group that wears black masks, fatigues and beats up people and destroys properties, endorses violence, a party that worshipped a former Senator that was the Grand Wizard of the Klan who was the idol and inspiration of so many Democrats.
taking our national debt to $22 trillion (the highest in history),
Compared to the Socialist that want Medicare for all $3.2 trillion a year, renewable energy $450 billion a year, buildings with ZERO emissions $88-100,000 a home which comes to $1.4 trillion a year, factories, office buildings $5.6 million, if each one costs $500 million to retrofit that would add an additional ¥300 billion per year.
In other words if the Democrats ever get into power.....(would take a miracle at this point) it would completely blow everything and any debt every President combined has ever made.
and for cutting and running in Syria, against the advice of all your experienced wartime Generals..
The Same Generals That said we need to stay in Afghanistan and Iraq? Yes, Afghanistan after almost 20 years looks very prosperous and promising.

Thanks Bush II for getting us into two ways and a financial crisis. Thanks Obama for rescuing the country and kicking off today's bull market.
....and thank you, Mr. Trump for cutting deregulations, lowering the tax code, decreasing unemployment to record numbers, especially in the Black community and raising the GDP to over 3% and waking it from a slumbering economy to a roaring one, not to mention getting us out of Syria.
-2 ( +2 / -4 )
It is a start and better than nothing.
It's certainly not a win either. It's a draw that represents a compromise, correct?
It’s definitely a win because the predictions were, the Democrats weren’t going to bud an inch, so most definitely a win, not the kind the President or the Democrats wanted, but still a win, even marginal.
-3 ( +1 / -4 )
See, I don’t think so, if it were a loss, he wouldn’t get anything and that would have been catastrophic, but that didn’t happen. Not what he wanted, bu it’s a startvand a stat is better than nothing.
-3 ( +1 / -4 )
I completely agree. That said, why do you keep trying to spin it as a win?
Not spinning, had Trump not get anything it would be a complete loss, that didn’t happen. Had it happened, yo cold say it’s a lost.
-3 ( +1 / -4 )
I'm confused how you consider it a win, but Trump doesn't.
You didn’t listen to Trump, I get it, most liberals don’t. He’s not happy, but it’s something he can work with, I agree.
I see it as a compromise.
I do as well. Neither side gets what they want, but a little something.
Trump was offered more money without special Daca privileges originally but he refused to take it.
It was a lousy deal, it didn’t cover ending mass chain migration, ending the visa lottery program, catch and release, and t completely secure the border. Would have been stupid for him to have signed it.
Now he's getting less.
And the Dems still didn’t get any major legislation through yet.
I'm sorry, but you guys really must be doing your best to twist this into something positive. Which is good, you're gonna need a positive attitude the rest of his time in office to cope with what's going on.
No, not us, the Democrats think that they won this and in actuality no one won really, it’s all one big compromise.
-3 ( +1 / -4 )
Trump does not get to unilaterally change the purpose of the funding,
Actually, he can, not to mention finding other sources to fill that gap-WIN.
Good thing DACA isn't going anywhere until the courts get through with it.
So then the recipients will be in limbo and knowing how the Dems failed them and miserably, still on limbo status-LOST
-5 ( +0 / -5 )
Pelosi was very clear when she said nothing for a wall.
She was and now Trump will get the money, should he sign this deal at first she wasn’t going to give him any and now she is-WIN.
And still the Democrats get NO DACA deal.
