Trump's kids have joined his transition team as well as continuing to run his business empire.  Pay for play anyone?

The very fact that he even mentioned Steve Bannon as a possible chief of staff shows that he still does not get it. It could be a rough four (or hopefully less) years.

Trump won Louisiana by a very wide margin.    If the majority of Trump supporters are racist like you claim,  especially in the deep south,  why did so many in that state vote for Trump but NOT for Duke?               

Perhaps they have matured and prefer the more subtle dog whistle

racism to the bullhorn kind. I don't think I've ever claimed that the

majority of Trump supporters are racists, and I wouldn't claim that

those who are are of the rabid variety, such as the Klan group in

N.C. who will be holding a celebration of Donny's victory in the

near future.

In the heat of the presidential election, I forgot about David

Duke's run for the U.S. Senate. He didn't do too well in

Louisiana's "jungle primary." Seventh place with 3% of the

vote. Ouch.

That's why I protest racism and anti-Semitism on this website.

FYI--Highway, James et. al.

My Dearest Princess, by all means keep up your vigilance, be a watchman or watch "women" at the tower to fight racism. But you used the race card on Robert Gates and myself with such absence of difficulty; and that makes me question your credibility on this subject.

My French teacher was a Holocaust Survivor, she warned me about days like these.

Breaking news--


To the victor belong the spoils--


Trump's people are floating the name of white nationalist pin-up boy
Steve Bannon, Breitbart's own, to be Trump's Oval Office chief of staff.

You don't need Western Union to send that message.

A pundit on the BBC described Newt Gingrich as a has-been, Rudy Guliani as a looney-toon and Kris Kristie as a criminally challenged individual.

I just got a run down by Katy Tur of about a dozen or so of them.

You'll never guess what they all have in common-- they're all middle-aged white men. I guess they represent Donald Trump supporters and that he's not really going to be president for the entire country because the entire country is not made up of middle-aged white men.

Let's hear it for Latino men, black men, Asian American men-- and there are so many other diverse types of good-looking men in America that I could name.

Of course, there are lots of women too who would be qualified for some of those positions too.

And of course men don't have to be good-looking to have those positions, but President Obama has spoiled some of us. LOL

I just want to know which one is Curly? Curly was always my favorite.

Yeah, I liked Curly. Moe was a mean old coot, Larry was blah,

but Curly was engaging and funny and lovable. Newt, Rudy,

and Christie. See, Trump is going for the non-establishment

outsiders.

I guess you could switch those descriptions among
the three and still be okay. Newt is a looney-toon, etc.

Is that the same pundit that said Trump would never win?    :blink:

And this pundit is presumably well-paid for stating the obvious.
