    People, Trump does lobby shot as president, admitted to it, caught on crime and they cheered thinking a president can do that.

    No, you don’t. As president the law does not work for you and your not above the law. Oh are to do a job yes. Yet he apparently does not know what the fuck that is.
    He said he called Exxon and they said "How much do you need?" Exxon has said that is a total lie and he never called. Big surprise.

    I have been having a back and forth with some Trump supporters on Facebook about the children, And yeah, they are cheering Trump on, blaming Obama and saying the missing parents are at fault. As I said cruel and heartless all.

    Good. On either case it proves him a liar.

    This is what the electoral map would look like if voting was done by people 18-35 right now (and the GOP's actions continue to alienate them more from their politics every day):

    Between 21 and 51 electoral votes is all they could potentially muster.

    Hopefully. Would prove Trump correct in something in changing America, making it so the people actively seek out to weed out corrupted gop cults.

    Huh,according to the Independent, Several Polls suggest that Trump's appeal to White Voters specifically has lessened due to a combination of more registered voters becoming college educated and the shrinking of the uneducated whites by four percent. Meanwhile nearly half the population (49%) think he should be charged for criminal acts. Well, that's ironic.

    Given that Democrats have a better than even chance of controlling the White House and Congress, I don't think they want to give the minority party tools to place further procedural hurdles.

    It seems you're thinking of a slightly different story.

    The parents of 545 migrant children are hard to get a hold of, although the majority are believed to have returned to their countries of origin.

    Still tragic and horrible though.

    As for that map. I wonder if this comes full circle and the Democrats wind up reuniting with the saner members of the Republicans.

    These are the rules as presently set up, by your f*^king Party, that they then violates. Your defense of this power grab is so telling.

    They are not socks lost in the laundry, they are children for whom the Trump Administration did NOTHING to ensure they might get reunited with their parents. They lost or never filed any paper work on them, and when a Federal Judge ordered them to reunite these children, they refused to help. Their stated order was to separate the children "NO MATTER HOW YOUNG"! You are nonchalant about babies being ripped from their mothers and then keeping the children as you send the parents away without them, forcing them to go without their children. How are you not alarmed and angered by this?
    "Hard to get hold of" give me a break, that is such a week response to toddlers being with out their parents for years.

    It is clear you don't like Trump personally, but it doesn't look like you have any problem with his cruel and inhuman policies. You fit with the modern Republicans just fine.

    I think saner Republicans left the Party a while ago. Outside of a few blue State GOP Governors, I don't see any in office.

    There was the Utah candidate who did that ad with his opponent to show they could work together.

    Trump's trying to do what he did to Hilary Clinton to rattle Biden. Though it is clear Biden expected the Hunter attack route.

    That was pretty nice.

    It isn't going to work all the time. You won't always have people who agree that their opponent is a decent person.

    Both people also benefit. The Republican is ahead by a lot, and about to become Governor of an easy to manage state at 45. He also defeated Huntsman in the primary, so this is a way to make sure he isn't branded as abrasively conservative. The Democrat is a lawyer who worked in the Obama administration who is now positioned for a better job in the Biden administration.

    This article points to something interesting that is pertinent to our conversation:

    https://www.vox.com/platform/amp/215...mpression=true

    The theory: Trump and his campaign are so enmeshed in online conspiracy and conservative media culture it's now impossible for them to communicate with people outside that bubble. Their talking points only make sense if you are a dedicated consumer of conservative media, and to the other 60% of people it just sounds like nonsense (which, if I may be so bold, it is).
