Meh ... everyone worried about things that haven't and probably won't happen.
Live your life and remember - He was a Democrat for the vast majority of his life.

He was never a democrat, he registered Democrat, and contributed to Democrats, because the Democrats ran NYC. He was buying influence and favor. He's never been particularly political beyond helping his business.
But I agree, don't get all in a lather over what he might do, just keep an eye on him and bitch when he does something that rattles your cage.

Let's assume we can find some articles demonstrating the reaction you predicted is happening --but what was is exactly you predicted and what did it mean?

I never untangled all the hypothetical meta-references you and Clodfobble were bantering back and forth.

If who says what about Oprah it means what, or proves what?* **

*about Trump (?)
**about Lefties / Righties (?)
