This has got to be the biggest rejection of Grump yet coming from a constituency such as this.

Serious question: How large is this group of militaristic trannies that want to actively serve?

The number who want to serve is irrelevant. That fact that there are some who have served honorably is what you should focus on.

The rebuke given the other day to a Republican President by the current head of the DEA over the recent police brutality remarks is pretty substantial as well.

Sad for the country in that the "leader of the free world" doesn't get it. Sadder - even if he did, he could care less. All that matters to him is "winning" regardless of outcome and his family.

It seems we forgot the clock only moves forward...seems our administration thinks time stood still and wants to pull back....They are also going after affirmative action at colleges because white people are so oppressed (Shaking my head)

Spending money on a wall that could go to infrastructure knowing the wall will come down when Trump is no longer there is a huge waste of resources

It also came out today that Mexico never called DT to praise him on what ever he thought they praised him for...

He's now in the center of a real fake news story about the aid killed that Fox news ran....with trump directing it...

He's a propagandist ...a clown for the ages...the real creator of "fake news" Have we found out what they found in Hawaii about Obama???

Ya know DT been around for a very long time...For that entire time he's been a clown....how did anyone take him serious

Lots of people with their head buried in the sand

There were plenty of qualified Republicans on the ticket...only 3 I wouldn't have voted for DT Cruz...and Perry...any of the others would have been much better for our country than the uncivil liar in there now

Goldtop, why do you keep missing the point that Bhawk just made? It was never about policy or accomplishment. He was willing to say outrageous hateful comments about groups of people hated by the right - liberals and minorities. He says the things the common right winger isn't allowed to say due to political correctness. Trump says it all, and that's all they need because it feels good to them. And feelings are clearly what matters most to these oversensitive insecure people. Build a wall because I'm scared of competition from third world brown people who I know are better than I am. Initiate a travel ban from the scary brown people, get rid of affirmative action because I'm scared of competition.....and brown people. They are all frightened insecure people who need to feel better, and Trump does that for them. No accomplishments or integrity? No problem - just keep writing those funny tweets. America can come 2nd.

Oh I get it....its been as clear as the driven snow for the last 8 years of Obama

Doesn't mean I don't want to point out the better choices they had if they'd actually used their vote for something productive

Trump did set himself apart from the Republican field, with his stance on illegal immigration, which helped him win the election. He swayed many whites who voted for Obama in 2008 &2012 races.

Yep as being the most disgusting candidate in history...lets see he insults everyone...uses school yard bully tactics...disparages War heroes...gold star families...disabled people...and women ...yep he really set himself apart...

I guess you don't consider his position to be anything but to serve you...I guess your father didn't serve in WWII and die for the way we have lead the free the world since.....yep and you are willing to give all that up for DT

His immigration bill has as much support as the healthcare bill does...none

yep its all those brown people who are oppressing you to the point where you'll vote for the laughing stock of the world

I started this post so it's pretty obvious that I'm 100% against Trump's transgender policy. Some however have thrown in Trump's stance on getting rid of Affirmative Action as more evidence of his racism. I have to disagree there.

IMO Affirmative Action is blatant reverse racism. I come from a very poor white family and was educated in the California community college system. Maybe someone can explain to me why they think someone from a so-called minority group should get preference over me for education or a career because of their race. And by the way, I said "so-called" minority group because I am currently working at a County hospital in the East Bay. If you look at the demographics of the employees there you will see that white males are the biggest minority in the employee pool. Filipinos most likely comprise the biggest racial sector, if not overall then certainly in nursing. And that is true of many Bay area hospitals. Not only that, but in 23 years in medicine I've suffered severe discrimination, both from a white male and also from Managers who were a different race or sex than me.

I'm about as anti-Trump as they come. But if he's trying to vanquish Affirmative Action I give him kudos for that one.

Yes, Yes, and Yes. Wish I could have said it so well. I especially love the last sentence.....VERY true as to why Trump got elected.

There are over 120 retired generals and admirals so it is quite possible that more than 50% voted against and Trump went with the majority.

I have no problem with a transgender in the military as long as the transformation is complete.




Cool. You can have the job of physical inspections.

Thanks JK. Would you like pics to complete your album?


No. I want you to be able to focus 100% on the job.

Rob, if you have been victimized, there are laws to help you. I hope you pursue it because it should never happen. But to respond to your post, we cannot expect anything to be "fair". It's impossible. Without quotas, any company can flat out refuse to hire minorities. It's a necessary evil, IMO. Secondly, one can argue that affirmative action is financially beneficial for a company, and therefore acceptable under the laws of free capitalism. Many large banks need minorities at their branches to "reflect the communities in which they serve" - in other words, minority workers in banking attract minority customers. If the bank says it's more profitable to have minorities at branches, who is anyone to say otherwise? I know there are 2 valid sides to this story. Just saying that it's a necessary evil, and at the end of the day, white men probably have the easiest paths to work around it. But I do feel bad that you've been discriminated against. I once worked at a company run by a woman that hated men. Let's just say it wasn't a pleasant experience to say the least.

Does this actually surprise anyone? This moron can't even talk properly to a group of boy scouts. He can't say or do anything right to anybody and whatever he does say can't be trusted to be truthful or factual in any way. His credibility level is as low as anybody's credibility level could possibly get. Just a pathetic pathological liar, a narcissist, and the biggest sociopath in the history of the world. He lies so often and with such conviction that it is obvious that he really believes the horsesh_t he is spewing. Just pitiful!

Probably could be said about Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush Sr etc.... except for Obama and Clinton, they were smooth communicators. As for sociopath, I think the Clinton's own that. I also think you have to be somewhat a narcissist to even consider being POTUS. I couldn't handle it.

I remember Obama campaigning on "Right to Know" regarding GMO foods. Boy that died quickly. Big money/Pharma/Food Industry must have opened their mouths. Remember Michelle and her organic garden at the White House? Shut down quickly. Next thing I know she's pushing healthy school lunches which was a joke. I'm sure she initially meant well until "politics" got in the way.


The Clintons and Obama and every Democrat that's ever served in government could go to prison tomorrow and Donald Trump would still be President, would still have enormous responsibility, and as long as the Constitution remains, people have every right to criticize, judge and decide anything they want about him and his performance.

Selective Right Wing Whataboutism does not invalidate that fact.

These notions...

- Because of anything the Clintons did wrong, Trump is responsible for nothing he does
- The person you voted for lost, so you have no right to say anything about anything

...are both juvenile and stupid.

Selective Right Wing Whataboutism does not invalidate that fact.

No. Because this is 2017 and history proves that if you apply yourself and work towards a goal, anyone can accomplish anything.
