Credit where credit is due. Trump may have done something good.

It feels like folks on the fence are starting to figure this guy out, but crying kids with brown skin only solidifies the base. I wonder how the polling numbers will look?

Anybody else piss off their racist relatives this week?

My father has wisely not mentioned the name Trump, or anything to do with national politics, in at least six months. All he has left to rant about is how California is going bankrupt because of those dang California liberals. One of these days he'll have to admit he's flipped, but it's going to take at least a year after Trump's gone for him to say it out loud.

The Don is only about promoting himself. He vainly tried to blame Democrats for making (non-existent) laws. Then blamed separation of kids on biblical teachings. And still kid crying as they were separated from their parents was making him look bad.

No problem. He made a big deal about signing an executive order - that stops all those pictures of crying kids. He does nothing about the maybe 2500 other kids still separated. Since those do not create pictures that make The Don look bad. The Don cares nothing about kids. The Don cares nothing about America. The Don only cares about The Don.

Hmmm. I'm wondering what kind of cheese should go with this whine thread. I've tagged the other whine threads with matching cheeses. I've got it! Let them eat cake ... cheesecake! It's a done deal.

Only one of my friends that voted for Trump still supports him. I think that he just wants to be contrary.

Learn from mistakes. He obviously is doing what he has always done. Anyone thinking logically could see that long before 2016. Trump is there for same reasons so many made a similar mistake; knew Saddam had WMDs.

Facts made both conclusions obvious. We humans make mistakes to learn. Learn from those mistakes. What is so defective in a thinking process that made such a bogus conclusion?

It is explained by the expression "adult who is still a child". A majority of adults make decisions based only in emotions. Same mistake is why an overwhelming majority of Americans knew smoking cigarettes increased health.

Worst of these adults even believe the WTC was taken down by a government conspiracy. And quote bloggers who must be honest because they are bloggers. Too many do not learn from their mistakes.

I think there were a lot of people who had listened to campaign speeches and watched election outcomes only to be from disappointed to disgusted with the federal government.

Along comes trump and they said well shit, none of those politicians helped any and this guy talks about shit I can understand, so what the hell.

What the vast majority don't understand is the White House is a dog & pony show, what we really need is a change in Congress to make anything better. Not a push for a majority of one party or the other, Congressmen/women who are better quality.
