He is slowly but surely setting America back to an age where racism was common, the white man ruled America and about half of the population is ok with this... utterly shocking.
So is there no silver lining? Yes, it seems that maybe in about 10 or 20 years from now, because the contrast couldn't be starker, Obama will be viewed as one of the best to have ever served, while history will judge Trump as the worst by far, someone who, at least for 4 years, will have America relived its past.

So none of the Trump supporters care about the environment or climate change? Utterly shocking. Putting future generations at risk for a few more jobs, which isn't even guaranteed. Don't think the world will thank the US for it.

Right forgetting for a moment about the well documented and proven racism, facism, misogynism and just plain idiocy, I wonder how you think about Trump selecting Myron Ebell, a man who disputes the scientific consensus around anthropogenic global warming, to lead the EPA transition team...? Not to mention Trump wanting to quit the Paris agreement.
This man is singlehandedly (well actually, him, and his legion of doom) going to destroy America and the world and you think people shouldn't have the right to demonstrate..?

For Trump, who ran on a pledge to “drain the swamp” of Washington insiders, the team is strikingly heavy on those with long political resumes.
This must be the MSM talking, surely not their savior, their cult leader!? Impossible. Believe me, it`s hugely, bigly impossible.

Couldn't agree more with oldman_13.
Trump is solely responsible, but got what he wanted, the deplorables did too. The rest of all, well... we have now all arrived in Trump's alternate reality and its a nightmare from which we cannot wake up for at least 4 years:

The only way the hate is going away is if he starts respecting minorities, women, handicapped, different beliefs, a womens the right to her own body, right to universal healthcare, and much much more.
If by some miracle he actually starts doing that, I too will respect him. Until such time......

We tried the far lefts crazy way and it almost tanked the country and turned us into Sweden, not anymore.
Funny, how that works. Turns out Sweden is constantly ranked in the top 10 or top 20 in the world when it comes to quality of life, friendliness, safety, economically stable, fantastic education system, public health, equality.
I suppose... none of those things are interesting or things that matter.
Well, okay, lets do it the way of the republicans for four years, not that we have any choice now. You have the president, the senate, the house and very soon, the supreme court. Virtually, if not literally, nothing you want to do, we can stop. So, if in 4 years, this country is not what it ought to be, what Trump right now promises it to be, where do you think the fault lies? And don`t for one second blame the Democrats, we have zero to do with the next 4 years!
Good luck. You`ll need a lot of it.

Not gonna lie, this is not only unexpected, but massively disappointing.
But no point in being bitter, congrats to the republicans. Hope he will make it a better country - though, after all this time, still unsure how.

Will admit that I too got it pretty wrong. Not the part about Trump, that was still spot on, but the prediction about how many people want a man like that in the WH. Pretty unreal when you think about it...
Looking a lost cause now, so I suppose the majority get what they voted for.

Quite an accomplishment given what they had to work with.
Not really, considering what we were up against.....

“Or honestly, we’ve all wasted our time.”
And Donnie`s money, hopefully all of it will have evaporated after his failed bid which is looking increasingly likely. And then the lawsuits will come I hope. How sweet the day....... but no letting up! Last chance to keep this extremely dangerous, racist, vile, narcissistic fraud out of the White House. Vote BLUE!

Hey Donnie supporters - not too late to change your mind you know! Turn to the blue, lighter, brighter side of life. You'll see it is infinitely better over here. And you'll likely save yourself a lot of heartache in about 36 hours.

This is no more than just - Comey should have investigated first before making a preliminary announcement. Though it may have hurt the Senate turning democratic, I believe that enough people will see through Donnie's anti-Semitic nonsense. Am cautiously positive, especially since its looking like Clinton is doing well in NV and NC. Hopefully Florida will turn blue as well, and its game over, you're fired Donnie. For good, so he can crawl back under the rock he came from.
19 ( +28 / -9 )
After NV, NC is also looking good, but voting blue needs to continue!

NRA is probably disappointed he didn't have a gun, after all this is the narrative the republicans are trying to drive: more guns for more people in more places. But I see, many republicans now want to blame the democrats... staggering, just staggering.
The secret service did a good job though.

I agree with the article from the economist.. have you read it? It suggests that apart form the Senate, it is all going well for the Democrats. Maybe you included the wrong article? It is Sunday morning after all...

Looks Nevada is doing well for Clinton in early polling. Thats positive.
And this is interesting:

Trump as a president would be the single biggest disaster since WOII. There, I said it.
Whatever you do, vote blue!

And so the GOP and its supporters sustain themselves.
The GOP cuts education costs, dumbing down plenty of people who will then listen to whoever is the loudest (Trump), subsequently voting for him, who in turn will then further cut down education costs. Repeat.

that violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act and an 1871 law aimed at the Ku Klux Klan.
Quintessentially the Republican party. Get ready for more lawsuits Trump & followers. About time we get rid of this racist, obstructionist, immoral, back to the 19th century - party.

Republican legislative candidate tweets Obama should be hanged
And Trump is thinking to himself "if only he was my running mate... well, maybe I can make him part of my campaign somehow". Birds of a feather...

Ah, Republican political terrorism at its "best" again. Put some pressure on the FBI and look what happens. I"ll file this one with the Benghazi stuff in the "keep-bashing-Clinton-for-as-long-as-we-can" file.
Anyone remember how many emails Bush lost again..?

Hey, if ABC News says Hillary has a 12 point lead, it's game over!
Indeed. Sorry to break it to you, but... yeah, pretty much.
But don't let it stop you from posting entertaining youtube vids and the bits of (non-)information "this is interesting...". We all could do with a bit of a laugh after so much seriousness on JT lately.
