Most of his most prominent supporters opposed him for good reasons but then embraced him when he won election. They are maleable tools who suck up to power.

The wonderful thing about politics is that you can criticize anything and think you are right. This article is the biggest "So? What?" article. It's America. That's what we pay these guys for. To give their opinion, right or wrong.

Jordy,

Were you born this stupid? Or did you have to work at it? Get dropped a few times on your head maybe?

So what? Obama AND Clinton are on record in video saying illegal immigration is a serious issue for America and needs to be fixed but then changed their stance when a Rep started saying the same thing. Point is, if Trump appointed Obama to the position, Dems would be peeing their pants with excitement. Reps and Dems prove every day that hypocrisy isn't the problem, the problem is that party affiliation seems to cause memory loss so they are unable to see they hypocrisy. But, instead of understanding that, the weak-minded of them instead come on comment boards and call someone stupid for telling it like it is.

*looks above*

Thanks for letting me know that you think I'm right. I'm right and you think I'm right.

Another good post. I wish I had your temperament.

What's more, if we look back just a few months, in January (during yet another Schumer Shutdown), what was revealed at that point was that the Democrats in Congress didn't want to spend a tiny portion of the budget to fix a major and chronic crisis. The message that was heard loud and clear is that the Democrats did not want Trump to have a "political win". It still sounds absurd to me, but it's true. I would not have believed it if Nancy and Chuck hadn't said it themselves.

Where is Schumer these days? While we're at it, where's Hilary?

White House Talking to Candidates to Replace Cain, Moore for Fed
www.bloomberg.com

...The White House is interviewing candidates to potentially replace Herman Cain and Stephen Moore as Donald Trump's picks for the Federal Reserve Board, the president's top economic adviser said.

Cain, the former pizza company executive who ran for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, must decide for himself whether to withdraw from consideration for a Fed job, Larry Kudlow said Tuesday at the White House.

"At the end of the day, it will probably be up to Herman Cain if he wants to stay in that process or not," Kudlow told reporters. "As far as we are concerned he is still in the process and it is proceeding."

Asked whether the White House is interviewing anyone to potentially replace Cain and Moore, Kudlow said, "We are talking to a number of candidates. We always do." Politico earlier reported that other candidates were being interviewed....

Comparing anything to the holocaust = an immediate "I win" card. That's the top-tier, A+, untrump(sorry)able move.
A - tier: shouted accusations of "violent bigot", "islamophobe"
B - tier: "racist", "nazi" - both still effective, yet losing steam due to recent oversaturation

Would anyone care to fill in the rest?

FTA:

"Jumping right into deportation of illegals, 11 or 12 million people, which I'm just going to tell you my opinion, it's an un-American," Kudlow said. "What is this? Taking police and going house to house?"

I've never gotten a Trumper to give a policy answer to the issue Kudlow raises.
Two years in, it's not going house to house.
But there's still time for that to change.

Why do you lie? Obama and Clinton have never said that immigration is not a serious issue that needs to be addressed.

-- Obama and Clinton have never said that immigration is not a serious issue that needs to be addressed.

Hillary Clinton in 2016.

"And the result is that we have the most secure border we have ever had," she said. "Which just strengthens my argument that now it is time to do comprehensive immigration reform."

"We have a secure border," she urged.

Politician (at some past moment); 'Joe Blow is a piece of wet sanctimonious dog dirt. I hope he dies in an accident that involves falling, fire and poisonous insects. Eff his mother.

Same politician, seeking office assignment from joe blow; 'I was just kidding about all that other stuff i said. Would I lie?'
