    How anyone could feel proud to have this menacing bombast sitting in the Oval Office is beyond me.
    Funny. I was watching the NASDAQ and Dow, today. I didn't see much "soaring"

    I do not understand how any Republican can sit by and let this bumbling clown continue to run the country into the ground.

    Yeah! They kept saying the market was breaking records while the ticker was showing a lot of drops. The stock market is a con anyway.

    Unfortunately he is not starring in a reality show this is actually real. Nazi racist ideology may be nonsense to anyone with half a brain unfortunately there are many who fall for it. Not saying trump is a hitler but he seems to have the same playbook.

    He has an audience, he has people like KellyAnn who go out and create mayhem deliberately when he tells them to, he orchestrates outrage to drive the topic of the day and to leave the audience coming back tomorrow to find out what happens. That's all reality, yes, and it's all aimed at increasing his voter turnout next year. What else would you expect him to be doing.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    every time folks start to focus on his latest actual threat to Democracy, he tweets, and the whole country goes all a-twitter over it.
    Like living next to a tree full of Grackles.

    I don't think he's an "actual threat to Democracy", I think he's an opportunist storyteller reacting on the fly to what people are discussing. He's posing, he has no intention, he has no destination, he's just maximizing his visibility from a prominent platform. He's acting.

    The threat to democracy is the gaggle of enablers, and tag-alongs that have gathered in his wake.

    They'd exist in every administration, Shirley. Why do you think the Palestinians have been so utterly screwed this last half century. What do you think Kissinger was when it came to death squads in South America, or Ollie North to the Nicaraguans.
