    He has managed to unite the Neo-cons against about everyone else. Christians against other christians , Republicans against other republicans. Seriously if the elect was held today Hillary Clinton would stand a very good chance or drawing in Republicans too.

    • Republicans have put themselves into a very painted-in-box at this point.

      Trump is not the problem – Trump is just the result of Republicans who have bragged about their hatred for one black man in the White House more than they loved their country.

      Trump ran on the very same issues that George W.Bush and Barack Obama ran on –

      1) illegal immigration
      2) infrastructure
      3) job creation and growing economy
      4) health care

      Tell me – when did any of these Congress Critters ever fix the illegal immigration problem?

      How about our infrastructure? Have those broken roads and bridges been fixed yet – since 2000 when GWB promised to rebuild out infrastructure?

      Or what about all those promises of high-paying American jobs?

      As for health care – does anybody really the Affordable Care Act actually solved the problem of affordable and accessible health care? Of course not – the ACA was a good start but it could have been much better if Republicans would have followed their own current advice of how patriotic Americans should unite and solve our problems.

      But – alas – that is not what Republicans did from 2008 to 2016 – was it? This is the time when Republicans actively called their President Obama an illegitimate president – among a lot of other racist names.

      Can we ever forget how Mitch McConnell publicly bragged that it was the #1 job of every Republican to bring down their President OBama?

      NO – my PPP blog friends – Trump is not the problem.

      Trump happened to be the bully with the biggest mouth and the bigger ego so that these Kompassionate Kristian Konservative Republicans could ram their ‘white man’ down the Democrats’ collective throat.

      Pelosi had it spot on when she said Trump signed that executive order against the ACA as being out of spite and cruelty.

      Sad to say – but Trump’s core base are Kompassionate Kristiain Konservatives who have shown their penchant to spread hate – and then claim to be the only ‘real’ followers of Jesus.

      Well – their version of Jesus – which is nothing like the ‘real’ Jesus I have read about in my Bible for the past 60 years.

  2. Axios’ Stef Kight looked through every Trump tweet since the inauguration, and noted each time he used Twitter exclusively to name-call, shame, insult or mock a specific person, company or industry, as well as each entity being attacked. (Not every negative comment qualified as an “attack.”)

  3. “Obama goes around signing executive orders,” Trump said in February 2016. “He can’t even get along with the Democrats. He goes around signing all these executive orders. It’s a basic disaster. You can’t do it.”

    • But ….but…..Trump is a Kompassionate Kristian Konservative – God has chosen him to be the Emperor of the United States.

      Didn’t God give you that memo?



    Can you imagine if this guy was Melania Trump and somebody was making money off HER doctored picture? All Holy Hell would break loose.

    Republicans have no shame



    So – these Trumpublicans are packing their bags and volunteering to leave right now to do the actual fighting and dying this time?

    NOW that is something I will support 100% – send every single TRumpublican. I don’t even care how old they are – or how fat they are – they can at least block some bullets.



    If Tillerson hates gossip, rumors and innuendos and believes this is harming the Trump Administration – then why is their boy Trump tweeting off his gossip, rumor, innuendos and downright debunked lies?

    Trump has shown he LOVES to play this gossip game – and Trump starts the majority of this nonsense.



    Good for this woman – if she feels Trump defamed her – then she has every right to pursue any legal options that are available to her.

    OR – Trump could just tell the truth – or at least hand over the requested documents.

    After all – when Trumpublicans have crucified Harvey Weinstein based on the recent news coverage – then shouldn’t these Trumpubicans also want their own President Trump to deal with his accusations of sexual harassment?

    It takes courage to stand up to your enemy.

    It takes extraordinary courage to stand up to your friends, co-workers and any idol you worship.

    If it is wrong for Weinstein -then it is wrong for Trump – IMHO

    A bit irony that I might meanted before, it seem for over a decade joyce wanted me to go to church with her. Well since it had gotten I want to go. something comes up that stops both of us going! This morning is once again she is not feeling good. A bit of a cold I think.



    If giving corporations more tax breaks is supposed to trickle down to the middle class by way of corporations investing their saved taxes into expanding and hiring more workers – then shouldn’t America be swimming in all those high-paying American jobs – especially since REAGAN started this Trickle Down Economics crappola back in the 1980’s.

    Republicans – they truly are as stupid as they sound.
