Exactly.

President Trump is a bullying con-man but because of his money he didn't need to be good at it to be successful at it. But there will be someone in the future who will be velvety smooth on the outside, but iron-fisted underneath and highly intelligent and crafty.

If you ask Trump supporters we already had that guy for 8 years and their boy is saving us from his wicked ways.

You'll know him by how he tries to undermine our system of checks and balances.

And this is the reason we have a further check in the fourth estate (a free press).

The body politic has been slowly poisoned over the last several decades. That's what helped.

I'm optimistic that the anti-venom is going to start being administered soon.

I've never understood this. A) No one knows how you voted and B) I'd think that a conservative in NYC or LA would be even more emboldened by the anonymous nature of voting.

"Not Clinton" shouldn't have been enough to motivate ANYONE to vote for Trump. Because of that result, I have zero faith in his voters learning a lesson the next time around. He was a trainwreck of a candidate and they put him into office. I am not convinced that a trainwreck of a Presidency will change their minds. Because Trump blabbing secrets to the Russians doesn't affect Bob Coal Miner. And if Trump gets out there and says "No, coal jobs are REALLY coming back this time!", I think Bob will vote for him again.

True. Many of the 81% of evangelicals who voted for Trump believed that President Obama was the antichrist of the Bible. The sad part is that while there was no Biblical case to be made for that, there is quite a compelling one that Trump is.

Embarrassed and/or beat down Republicans won't vote for him. And Democrats will be more energized than ever to get off the sofa and vote. Especially now that the non-coastal Democrats see what happens when they don't vote (or think "one vote for Trump won't matter").

I've seen Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell a bunch of times on CNN. Intelligent, well spoken and likeable guy. He could destroy Trump if the Democrats nominated him. He's only 36 but I think he's a rising star.

Yes. Easily. On an scale of evil 1-10 with 10 being the worst, Trump is about a "2".

The strange thing is that Trump outmaneuvered some much more clever and disciplined primary candidates.

As much as I despise Trump, I can't find the humor in him being shot.

Re: Poll: Will Trump be impeached or leave office before his first term ends?

He won't make it through the end of the year because of his .... alzheimer's. It's too bad that we'll never see how great a president he would have been if it wasn't for his ..... alzheimer's.


If he uses some excuse like this I think it's important that we all just accept it and move on as quickly as possible. The messier and more combative his exit is the tougher time we're going to have containing the 10-15% of the country that would follow him into the pits of hell. They are angry and they are stupid.

I don't think you understand.

If he doesn't die of natural cause before then, he's for sure dying in prison.

The thing I wanna see is his entire family completely shamed and run out of Washington like carpetbaggers and his brand run into the ground once and for all.

Seeing Ivanka and Jared having their asses kicked out of their posh DC estate would make my eyes well up with tears of joy.
