    Denial just ain't a river in Africa.

    BTW, how much credibility would you actually give someone who said that they thought trump was an honest man, that he cared about the average American, that he had good leadership skills, etc.? Wouldn't you think that person was just a tad out of touch with reality?

    It is one thing for one to think that their spouse is the most wonderful person to walk the earth and that their kids are the smartest, most talented and amazing kids in town; quite another to watch what is happening politically and not seeing the truth. One doesn't even have to depend on slanted news...all they have to do is watch news clips, twitter, and hear the words coming straight from the man-child himself.

    IMO, it is probably because it seems so unlikely that after the past year that thinking reasonable people could/would continue to think he is good for this country even if they believed him to be at one time. I know it if difficult to have to admit that those who we once put trust and faith in turn out to have feet of clay; however, it does happen to most sometime during their lifetimes. Again IMO, sometime playing devil's advocate is perceived as "hero worship" and it is up to the misunderstood to set the misunderstanding straight or they risk continuing to be...well, misunderstood.

    ...and that is my 2-cents worth opinion.

    In two days trump was corrected by Kevin McCarthy at the immigration meeting, misrepresented FISA surveillance rules, said incorrectly that DACA and the Dreamers were two different things, stupidly accused an FBI agent of treason for having private thoughts, referred to specific countries as s**tholes in a blatantly racist rant, and blithely announced that he and Kim Jung Un were on a friendly footing. Clearly, the man is incompetent, and on one level he needs to be pitied. On another, he needs to be removed from office....period. His father was diagnosed with dementia.....it is conceivable that the condition is inherited and that has affected trump's judgement and behavior. By excusing his behavior as being 'nontraditional' or the euphemisms the GOP has conjured to excuse his irrational rants, they do nothing for the country they took an oath to serve and protect. He, and the cowards in the GOP (and, yes, the Democrats too) have been complicit in hiding the cancer that has turned this country into an international laughingstock. When an illness lasts too long, you go to a doctor. Trump has an illness; he needs to be examined.

    To be honest, I don't think idiot-boy is so much racist or antisemitic as he is totally not accepting of anyone, regardless of color, religion, sex, or any other human identifying trait, who he feels is inferior (which in his opinion is just about everyone) to himself or are of no help to him in obtaining what he wants for himself. He has no compunction in using people and he knows no loyalty for anyone else while demanding it of everyone around him for himself. And for all those who have put their faith in him, he cares about them only so long as they will appear at his rallies and cheer him on, wear his red MAGA baseball hats, etc. He doesn't care if they have adequate health care opportunities, decent jobs, decent education for their kids or about their lives in general--only as it supports him and feeds his ego.

    So, instead of being a "racist" he is just a hateful individual except to those who he wants something from at that moment, in 5 minutes that could and will change.

    Hopefully, it is not lost on any of you that with all those in the room yesterday with him when he used the term "shithole countries"...not a one of them has corroborated his denial of saying it.

    What a bunch. When asked to respond to trump's racially charged comment, both Senators Perdue and Cotton said they did not recall that word. Well, now. Maybe they need hearing aids. Had trump said that he was going to nuke South Korea, would they have heard that? Maybe if their hearing is so poor that they miss such an out-of-place remark, they shoud not be in such positions of responsibility. They are not stupid; they parse words and detect nuance when the opposition speaks on policy. How odd that they missed trump's words. How does this happen? They lie. Then they call Diick Durbin a liar. They have obviously been stricken with the lyingtrumpenvirus, a malady that causes people to lie when confronted with question they find uncomfortable to answer. There is a cure for that. Leave the Senate, you worthless clowns.

    Many times here, some have stated that if Trump remains President, we will become a "third world country".
    Could you give me an example of a third world country that we would reflect?
    And when you (general) say it, are you referring to the country or people?

    When I use the term "third world country" I am referring not to a specific country but to an authoritarian government. A government run by the elites who ignore the health and well being of the population; who pass laws and financial regulations to help themselves while placing the economic burden on the lower classes; who effectively shut down the media and the expression of truth; who flll the government with sycophants, friends and relatives who have no experience or interest in the position; who demand blind loyalty to an individual rather than the country; who oppress minorities and denigrate their culture; who attach their enemies or anyone who dares speak out; and who adopt an isolationist policy to wall off their power base. When I do think of dictatorships, I think of Marcos in the Philipines, Papa Doc Deuvallier in Haiti, Idi Amin in Uganda, Franco in Spain, Tito in Yugoslavia......the list goes on. All these leaders have the same characteristics in common, as did all dictators throughout history. To that list I add trump. His behavior and political views mirror the behaviors and characteristics of other authoritarians that have ruled countries not with compassion, but with a selfish lust for power, idolatry, and unbridled greed.

    It is beyond my ability to comprehend how anyone could rationally argue against this woman's opinion:

    http://wfaa.mlnwap.com/article.html#...7feac3566626ff


    WFAA anchor Alisha Laventure is the daughter of Haitian immigrants and shared this commentary on the 4 p.m. newscast on Friday, January 12, 2018.

    I've been struggling with what the president said yesterday.

    My parents were born in Haiti. They immigrated to this country as children.

    They had nothing when they came here.

    Think about the amount of grit and courage it takes to leave your home, to cross ocean waters and to start over in a new country.

    A country where you don't speak the language. You have no money - you are starting over from scratch.

    My parents did this.

    They busted their butts. And when you look at what they've managed to accomplish, there is no denying they are rock stars.

    How do you criticize people who are simply trying to come to this country to live a better life?

    The President of the United States is a man who represents a nation of immigrants.

    I get I'm a journalist. I'm not in the business of sharing my personal opinions.

    I'm only supposed to be unbiased and report the facts.

    But the fact is, what the president said yesterday was wrong. It was so wrong, I can't even repeat it on air! He is the president!

    My president. He's still my president and that's how he talks about me? Not just me, an entire continent's worth of people.

    I sat up until 3 a.m. trying to figure how to address this headline on my Facebook page today. I was trying to be diplomatic.

    The president is not playing by the same rules. How can he be so crass, so vulgar? He's done this before. Enough is enough! If the head of any corporation said what the president said yesterday, that person would be fired.

    Why should we accept any less from the President of the United States of America? A country, by the way, that's played a hand in the poverty Haiti and other nations face today.

    We have a right and a responsibility to hold the president to a higher standard.

    His rhetoric falls far from it.

    If my job is to report the truth - the truth is, what the president said was hurtful. It was mean. And to be blunt -- it was racist.

    If you're willing to let this language fly, you're part of the problem.

    Elected officials -- that includes you.

    Putting America first shouldn't mean bashing people of other nations trying to achieve the American dream.

    A little respect goes a long way.

    This was written beautifully. Sad that it had to be written though. Sorta speaks to where we are as a country, as I'm sure that he will get a free pass on this as well as every other hurtful and vulgar thing he has said thus far and will continue to say in the future.
    His supporters must be so proud of him. I'm sure as parents did with past presidents they are encouraging their children to grow up and be just like him.

    How far we have fallen. Gary Hart had to forfeit his bid for the White House when he was labeled a womanizer. Before that Thomas Eagleton relinquished his vice-presidential bid when it was revealed he had been treated for depression and had had electric shock treatments. Ed Muskie, upset that his wife had been maligned, seemed to weep as he spoke before the conservative Manchester Union Leader newspaper building in New Hampshire. That ended his bid. But this week we have a photograph of the president with a porn star who was paid double an ordinary worker's salary for her silence. Yes, times have changed.
