    I love how blatant corruption is excused and glossed over.

    Just consider how the American people felt about that matter during the eight long and corruption-filled years proceeding 2017, then. Those were NOT imaginary wrongdoings as was the case with the Trump-Russia hoax.

    Favorite? That a Trump 2020 victory absolutely terrifies the left.

    Worse still was that god-awful tan suit he wore! It's a miracle we even survived such an egregious fashion faux pas.

    I'm interested in seeing what will become of the right when Trump hits the brick wall of the 22nd Amendment. What Republican contender could ever possibly take up the mantle of Trumpism and come across as authentic? The voters have all but crucified any other Republican that doesn't exactly toe-the-line of Trump.

    I can't wait to see the right lose its rudder.

    You just keep making up imaginary problems. It’s cute.

    Not sure I follow... What did I make up, the 22nd Amendment? That Republican voters have abandoned conservatism for Trumpism? That the standard non-Trump Republican politician doesn't have snowball's chance at winning a national election anymore?

    Yes, this will be amusing to watch. But I wouldn't be surprised if he wins.

    My Conservative Christian Face book friends claim to be moral. Because the main sin is gay sex and abortions. Unless they had an abortion. Their abortion is okay. Who cares about other women dying from illegal abortions.

    The pure entertainment value and watching the media hang qnd gasp at every word he says, when he is likely the most predictable president we have ever had, from a behavior standpoint.

    It's almost like how sometimes a forest fire will encourage growth by first destroying all things which in turn creates an environment in which new growth can flourish.

    That's not fair. Yes, there maybe some religious people who don't live up to the moral convictions they profess, but that doesn't mean that all religious people (including Christians) are like that. I also know a few Christians like that, but I don't assume that all Christians I know are the same way.

    Favorite thing about the Trump Presidency?

    - tax breaks that help the middle class
    - stronger border security
    - getting out of the Iran debacle
    - getting out of the Paris Accord
    - Getting NATO to start paying more of their fair share
    -Support For Israel
    - Pro life Stance
    - Helping the veterans
    - Bringing honor and respect to first responders

    and the icing on the cake is the absolute hysteria he creates by just speaking. Doesn't matter what it is - they go nutso over it.

    - on second thought the icing is also watching the talking heads cringe every time he succeeds - then falling over themselves trying to come up with reasons why the progress or win was not the Presidents, but someone else's

    The Truth About Who Trump Is

    Trump’s charitable giving--Helderman reported that they couldn’t find a single cash donation to charity that Trump personally had made over the previous five years.

    Trump promised $1 million of his own money to veterans' causes; Trump lied

    Trump’s tax reform—
    The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported that under the Act individuals and pass-through entities like partnerships and S corporations would receive about $1,125 billion in net benefits (i.e. net tax cuts offset by reduced healthcare subsidies)

    corporations would receive around $320 billion in benefits.
    the Act would add an estimated $2.289 trillion to the national debt
    over ten years
    The individual and pass-through tax cuts fade over time and become net tax increases starting in 2027 while the corporate tax cuts are permanent.
    Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 - Wikipedia

    [1] These tax cuts drastically increase our National Dept
    [2] give a permanent tax break to the rich
    [3] throw a few crumbs to the working class for a few years
    [4] then (for the working class) the rate goes back to where it was.

    U.S. BUDGET DEFICIT REACHES HIGHER LEVEL UNDER TRUMP THAN AT ANY
    Trump’s Increased spending in 2018 bumped the deficit up 17 percent to $779 billion in fiscal year 2018, largely due to an increase in spending and a decrease in corporate tax revenue because of the Republican tax cuts late last year. The deficit is now on track to surpass $1 trillion before 2020.

    Trump filed bank bankruptcy six (6) times, after accruing about $1.8 billion in debt; he will take America with him on his seventh (7) bankruptcy

    Donald Trump's………… 62,979,636
    with a difference of ………2,864,974.

    Trump is president because Russian and others hacked into our electoral system manipulating the data. They also flooded our media with “false” accusations of misconduct by Hillary and associates. It was and is being proven to be from foreign sabotage.

    In the here and now; Trump has committed treason.

    In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one's nation or sovereign.[1] A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.
