And how about the current state of the GOP and the Presidency itself

Kind of a broad question; anything specific you have in mind?
At any rate, the nuts and bolts of politics bore me, in general. If you’ve noticed, the bulk of my posting runs along the lines of social issues and attitudes, not politics.

So our foreign policy bores you?  How about our economy?  Do you care about that?  

Those are not things that keep me awake at night.


Foreign policy includes potential and actual wars, trade, the nature of our defense policies, alliances, immigration policies...etc..

You seriously don't care about our nation's economy?  Don't care about the stock market?  Employment or unemployment?  Taxes?  Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid...etc...  

Why the hell do you vote at all?

So you didn't vote for Trump because... why exactly? He's done nothing but advance the Conservative social and economic agenda.

Sent from Topic'it App

I didn't vote for Trump because I don't particularly care for him.
If it is your opinion that, "He's done nothing but advance the Conservative social and economic agenda", fine.
But how could I have known he would do that before he was elected?

What's your opinion on his performance, his policies, and those of this Cabinet if not that?

Yeah. Well, continuing with another entry on your list of "those on the Left who have shown their true colors to the general public.... something they will never be able to take back."

"I think this woman who put this together is frickin' brilliant and a genius because it's such a political, simple statement: a pink hat, and all you have is the pussycat ears," said Mellicent Dyane, 50, a casting director from New York City, wearing a neon pink hat as she watched the rally. "It speaks volumes."

I'm simply blinded by the brilliance of the pussyhat.

So... That's it?  You don't like the pussyhat?  How is this emblematic of "a very important purpose" of the Trump presidency?

I've adjusted my attitude as to the pussyhats - I like them now. In fact, I concur with Ms. Dyane - they are "frickin' brilliant".

Yep.  I  mean, WTF?   If we're not going to discuss the fucking issues, then what's the fucking point?

Got anything at all to say about this train wreck of a Presidency, Jack?

Yes, I do.
Trump, as an individual, is a boorish asshole.
But his Presidency has thus far served one very important purpose, in my view. The very idea that he is actually in the White House has caused those on the Left to show their true colors to the general public, and that is something they will never be able to take back. Their behavior is not any grand revelation to me, of course - I've long known what they were like.

Who are they?  What are the "true colors" that you believe they're showing?  

"They" are:


Those who call for Trump's impeachment, but when asked, "On what grounds?", have no answer



Yeah. Well don't you think it's time to revisit this one, Jack?  

Sure looks like there are several issues that can serve as grounds for impeachment... don't you think?

Sorry for the delay... got distracted by the revelation that the FBI opened an investigation into whether Trump was acting as an agent of Russia before Mueller even got started.

While we wait for Mueller to complete his investigation, one of the most obvious grounds for impeachment is Trump's violations of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.   Undoubtedly an impeachable offense, don't you think?

Could well be. Just have to put the process in motion and see what does or does not stick.

Then there is the fact that Trump is an unindicted co-conspirator with Cohen in a conspiracy to violate campaign finance laws. (The payoffs to MacDougal and Daniels)  That's a felony... and another impeachable offense.

CNN Panel Melts Down Over Trump’s ‘Sexist’ Salad Joke
11:25 AM 01/15/2019 | Media
Amber Athey | White House Correspondent

A CNN panel accused President Donald Trump of being “sexist” Monday night because the president made a joke about first lady Melania Trump making salads.
The president cracked the joke to the national championship-winning Clemson football team during their Monday visit to the White House. Trump noted that because of the shutdown, he had to personally purchase a spread of fast food for the team’s visit, and joked that his food choices were better than having the first lady make them “some quick little salads.” (RELATED: CNN Cries Sexism During Discussion On Hillary’s Health)
CNN anchor Erin Burnett and analyst Joan Walsh accused the president of being sexist for assuming that the first lady would prepare the salads.
“That’s appalling,” Walsh said. “It seems to me that the president will not be happy until there is one single female Republican voter in the country. It’s incredibly sexist.”
“Sometimes what people say when they’re being funny exposes exactly who they are and what they think,” Burnett agreed.
Scott Jennings, the lone Republican on the panel, tried to defend the president’s attempt at humor but was shut down by the two women.humor but was shut down by the two women.
“I certainly didn’t take his comments to be sexist,” Jennings said.
“So then Mike Pence maybe could have made the salads?” Walsh shot back.
“How in the world do you not perceive that as sexist?” Burnett scoffed.

Well, if the Buzzfeed revelation is correct, Trump was compromised even before the Iowa caucus, thanks to his willingness to work with sanctioned banks and the GRU .

Business over country.

Hence the need for the Emolument Clause.

However this plays out, Putin wins. He's already done enough damage to the country. The way the GOP is circling the wagons around Trump, going as far to call for a disbanding of the FBI... Long term damage to this country's intelligence community that was already left hurting by the number of jobs unfulfilled because anyone capable of filling that position recognized what a clear and present danger he is to the country. Add in the damage to the economy thanks to the shutdown, not to mention how an impeachment will go with such monumentally stupid gun loving Trump fans.

It's going to be wildly entertaining.
