Fake shit.

1) I do not think anybody here needs a basic civics lesson, but thanks anyway. It was very nice of you to offer.

2) Trump set himself up for this criticism. During the campaign it was Trump saying "on day one," or "in the first 90 days" at every campaign stop. Everyone minus the approximately 63 million Trump voters knew he could not keep those promises.

3) Where is new healthcare legislation? Where is tax reform? Where is an infrastructure package? Those are the major pieces of legislation he promised to have done within three months. I know Trump's most ardent defenders constantly have to ignore Trump's own words so they can slither around a good point, but he set himself up for this criticism with his big mouth and ignorance of politics.  

4) While a president does not pass laws, they are intimately involved in working with members of Congress to get laws passed. Trump does not know how any of this works, and does not know how to wield informal power related to the lawmaking process. He is clueless. For a guy that considers himself a grand deal maker, he certainly cannot figure out how to bargain with Congress to make sure legislation gets done. He is not very good with the power of persuasion.

Trump Has Quietly Accomplished More Than It Appears



Keep posting those memes.....

Remember that one time Trump celebrated passing a House bill?  

Seems like it was a big accomplishment...a photo opp in the Rose Garden...

Bob darling? You and I both know that health insurance is not healthcare. The Democrats have been very successful at framing this debate but just because you and your liberal allies repeat the big lie a lot doesn't make it so.

One of my kids actually used the healthcare thing last night.....I asked him if he called State Farm when he blew a motor in his truck.


After all if health insurance = healthcare shouldn't auto insurance = care repairs?

The president retweeted leaked classified information that fox and friends had (wonder who gave it to them hmmmm) regarding North Korea this morning. At least hackers didn't have to go through all of the work of having to find it on private servers or whatever the fuck people were concerned about last year.

Bonker balls. This is all banana pants.

Oh, and just for the record...

Washington (CNN)A county official in Missouri is scaling back her latest suggestion that American troops should overthrow President Barack Obama.

Jefferson County Recorder of Deeds Debbie Dunnegan called President Barack Obama "our domestic enemy" and suggested the U.S. Constitution would give the U.S. military the authority to oust the president in a coup d'état, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Wednesday.

"I cannot and do not understand why no action is being taken against our domestic enemy. I know he is supposedly the commander in chief, but the Constitution gives you the authority. What am I missing?" Dunnegan, a Republican, wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post.

Military recruits pledge to defend the United States against "all enemies, foreign and domestic" when joining the armed forces.

Love your hypocrisy. When others post shit in here from the right it's all good, when I post shit from the left it's trolling.

The double standard is the very definition of hypocrisy. Now you carry on feeling good about your moralistic bullshit.

Keep on making excuses for the Commander in Chief who treats Putin and Neo Nazi's better than millions of Americans including the US Senate Majority leader.

Trump is a political coward who's so fucking afraid of alienating the base he just bragged about he refuses to call out white supremacists but rolls out a new 2020 campaign spot after the criticism of his response hit the fan.

He's truly a souless piece of shit.

What happened to states needing to be self-sufficient and fiscal responsibility.

Does Senator Ted Cruz (R) TX think citizens in his state lost their boots and their straps to pull themselves out of the flooding? Are they all takers ?

Fucking GOP assholes. How soon they forget.

Been wondering how asshats like Cruz and Louie Goober would respond to the Harvey aftermath after their previous comments and votes.
