    I don’t think it’s a matter of compliant Republicans in Congress tolerating Trump, in my opinion, they either agree with his madness or are afraid of going against him because of the power he wields with his brainless lemmings who are more loyal to him than the party. I suspect that if Trump were to subvert the Constitution to stay in power, Republicans will more than likely look the other way rather than stop him.

    Exactly, I think GOP congressmen are afraid of what he can have on them. But guys, I don't think he's gonna lose the election. He's going to rig it, because that's what he does, even in Golf. He cheats all the time.

    Most of the discussion here is left-wing, so there isn't much good in convincing you guys that Republicans should be criticized.

    I remain more willing that most others here to support the other party's candidates for office. In the midterms, I mentioned what Democrats I'd like to see win. Currently, I would prefer the Democratic frontrunner to win the presidential election over the Republican incumbent, and I've been pretty open about that. Much of the regulars aren't as open about their positions, talking a lot about Trump when his election wouldn't have changed their vote in any election.

    Although I'm sure he doesn't agreement with the sentiment, the tweet itself wasn't the main thing WBE objected to. He objected to the person being retweeted.

    Good for Illinois.

    Governor Pritzker is the third-wealthiest U.S. politician to have ever held office, after Michael Bloomberg and Donald Trump.
    He's also under investigation for property tax fraud.

    I get Biden's nomination isn't a sure thing, but if he thinks he can be a good President, it would be foolish for him to look at the numbers and think he should drop out.

    The numbers also suggest his loss isn't a sure thing, either.

    Honestly, we should probably consider outlawing horse racing.

    (Dog racing too . . . although that's started to happen a bit. And it is illegal in Canada.)

    In this instance, you're defending Donald Trump's affinity for white nationalists.

    This isn't about the leftys ganging up on you because you're the one who admits to being a Republican. You're defending a president embracing white nationalists. Regardless of if you were Republican, Libertarian, Democrat, Green Party, or a member of any party, that's disappointing. There is no civil discourse where that does not place you on the wrong side of a political argument, Mets.

    And y'know what? A little secret... you don't have to play defense out of some reflex for these ***holes. You can read a post, see someone in your party doing something atrocious, and tell yourself, "Y'know, that's fair criticism. Maybe there's no reason to rush to defend a white nationalist."

    Never forget that's an option.

    My hope is that the people in his administration who've been ignoring his worst directives on the DL will step up and resist should the situation call for it. I wouldn't bet the farm on it tho.

    They're intentionally incompetent. They've spent the last forty years telling us that government can't do anything right and we should leave things to the private sector, so they get into government and make sure that it can't do anything right, so we'll gladly hand things over to the private sector.

    Trumpís diabolical plan to blow up democracy, get reelected and avoid jail just might work | Will Bunch

    ow did Donald Trumpís most recent week go?

    Letís see ... his recently handpicked attorney general William Barr was accused of committing a crime by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and seems on the brink of a contempt of Congress citation. A growing chorus of influential Democrats say the disclosures in the finally mostly released Mueller Report and the administrationís growing defiance of Congress may leave no other choice but impeachment. And the 2020 Democrat that Trump seems to fear most -- former vice president Joe Biden -- has emerged as his partyís clear front-runner for the nomination.

    So I know what youíre thinking and youíre probably right: This was the best week, for Trump, out of his crisis-soaked 119 weeks in the White House.

    Some of the reasons that Trump can light up a celebratory cigar on whatever taxpayer-reimbursed golf green heís bilking us at as I write this are Ė in part Ė the conventional ones. By every traditional measure, the economy is booming (and weíll defer the conversation about gig-working, rent-and-college-debt-drowning millennials for another day.) With that, and with Trumpís idiot-savant political skills in getting Barr to roll out the Mueller Report findings to deaden any blows and somehow portray himself as a victim, the president has risen to 46 percent approval in the Gallup poll. Thatís highest of his presidency -- and equal to the number that got Trump elected on Nov. 8, 2016.
    But the most significant development for Trumpís 2020 reelection bid is something else that came into clear focus over the course of the week: The president has a plan for survival. It involves essentially shredding the Constitution, demolishing the government of ďchecks and balancesĒ that was envisioned by the Founders, and promoting a crisis that will leave Americans angry and, at least psychologically, poised for a civil war. That sounds scary but the scariest part is: It just might work: Not for the nation, of course, but for Trump, which in Trumpland is the only outcome that matters.

    Sanders has unveiled his plan to "Revitalize Rural America." (It's actually pretty comprehensive.)

    I didn't defend "Donald Trump's affinity for white nationalists." I'm arguing that the evidence used to support that point is rather flawed.

    If you think your criticism is fair and accurate, make that case. Demonstrate where I countered, prior to your post here, that it's okay for President Trump to amplify hatemongers, or where I said he's an ignorant, senile, idiot.

    You could also say why you disagree with my idea that we shouldn't expect politicians to be familiar with the likes of Lauren Southern.

    If you're discussing President Trump's flaws, you shouldn't have to exxaggerate, or make stuff up.
