“Treason” — wow! We’re living in the age of treason being defined as disagreement with Trump. How Putinesque. If you’re not one of Trump’s lap dogs, then you’re a traitor to the country? Being a traitor is inviting, on television, Putin to interfere in an election, then doing nothing about it when he does. It’s asking Putin, to his face, if he interfered in our election, then taking the word of a hostile dictator over our own security departments who give their lives over to protecting us from interference by such entities. Did he think Putin would just fess up?
I’m sure that none of the Republicans will remember or acknowledge how they treated Obama when he won the election (twice). They spit at him at the inauguration, called him a liar, and promised to not work with him. They kept that promise. They did, however, get paid for doing nothing. If Obama had done ANYTHING Trump has done, they would have gone ballistic.
Trump is like a mis-wired rabbit doe that eats her young.
If you don’t vow allegiance to him and his every whim, if you have your own beliefs or thoughts, (which you’re guaranteed by the Constitution) you’re a traitor, and he will come up with a cutesy name for you and throw you to the wolves. Is this junior high, and he’s the class bully, tweeting away trying to smear anyone who doesn’t bow down to him?
I’m really sick of Paul Ryan’s excuse for him that he’s just new at it. All incoming presidents are new at it. If he doesn’t have even a rudimentary idea of what the government stands for, he shouldn’t be there. Do we need to have tests for candidates on what the government is? Can’t anyone get through to him and make him understand this is not a dictatorship? Please explain to him there’s a reason the justice department is not his to command. It’s to keep anyone from abusing their power, or doing any harm to our country. That’s right, we all own the country, not just him.
His big tax cut bill has cut revenue and increased debt.
Now he wants to have a big parade. It has nothing to do with veterans. It has to do with his ego competition with North Korea. Since he’s so fond of titles, I guess we could dub him Little Orange Rocket Man. Wouldn’t that huge amount of money be better spent on things that we really need, like health care, or any of the myriad things the country really does need?
The tax bill = if you’re not the top 1 percent, you will get a small break. That will expire after the election, but the wealthiest’s will not expire. Who do you think will have to pay more to make up for that? Cut regulations so the public has no protection from corporate wrongdoing. Don’t you like knowing what’s in your food, meds, unfair pricing, crooked dealing? We tried this before. It didn’t work. Under Bush, the corporations went wild, the economy completely crashed. The Republicans, most of them told people to get off their lazy asses and get jobs. There were no jobs. Deja-vu!
Obama handed Trump a very good job market and economy. You want to know why your profits aren’t climbing? Look to the corporations, whose profits steadily grew even through the crash. They don’t seem to understand, or care that the better you treat your employees, the better your business is.
