The Triumph of Donald Trump


Recommended Posts

There's got to be SOMETHING. As clueless as his base is, don't they follow the news at ALL?

Time will tell and I am sure there will be some defections, but probably not very many.  They didn't support Trump because he was the most qualified, experienced, intelligent, knowledegable, etc.  They supported him because they liked what he said even though he never said how he would do it or how it would hurt the working and middle classes, much less them.

They primarily listen to Fox News and the far-right radio and TV programs.  They also listen to each other and most are very ill-informed about the real world and what is happening.  Remember they absolutely do not trust the news sources that most of us on this site know are valid and objective in their reporting.

One example is the number who are surprised that they or relatives will be losing health care if ACA is repealed.  But, they still support Trump.  Another is the total disregard of the trillions of dollars in borrowing that Trump's economic plan will require.

 

Remember, they all still hate Pres Obama and Hillary Clinton.  Rational thought is not part of their make-up. They were opposed to the ACA because the Democrats and Pres. Obama passed it.  If it was called ACA, most would not have cared.  In fact, in KY it was called Kencare or something and the Trump supporters overwhelmingly liked it, but they voted for Trump anyway.  And they hated "Obamacare."

 

Of course, there are the people who supported Trump because it was in their political interest to do so.  The House Freedom Caucus and most elected Republicans fall into this category.  The HFC has already turned on Trump in the ACA issue.

 

The real question will be the 2018 elections and whether or not they vote Republican regardless of who the candidates are.  In the Deep South, they will in most Congressional districts and for state elections.

The other question is will they just disappear from the election process as many of them did before Trump.

 

All of us are guessing at this point.  I guess I am a pessimist with bouts of optimism.

Maybe Fox News...........

Donny is irritating the bleep oughta the democrats.

Well, Senators and Congressmen. it's in your corner to do something about him.

Right, but House members are addressed as "Congressman". Senators are addressed as "Senator".

It gets very confusing and you would think that in that distant past someone would have figured out a better system. 

Senators do not consider themselves as being "Congresspersons."  House members can be either Congresspersons or Representatives.

Seems the best way to stop the confusion is to address House

members as Representative, which is sometimes done.

It wouldn't have anything to do with your bozo bringing anything upon himself, would it.  It never does.

"Spicer was asked by Fox 5 DC’s Ronica Cleary if Trump is worried about his burdening of taxpayers with the cost of his regular vacations to his Trump-branded properties — like the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.....

...asked again if Trump has “any concerns about the pushback” regarding the estimated $3.3 million cost of each trip, when factoring in the cost of flying Air Force One, staffing costs for Secret Service protection, and additional security from the U.S. Coast Guard.

 

“No, he feels great,” Spicer said....

:(

 

 

(Joint Economic Committee Democrats released an analysis finding that “taxpayer money spent on Donald Trump’s vacations since January 2017 could have paid for child care for 2,338 kids in Mississippi (with the lowest child-care costs) or 521 kids in the District of Columbia (with the highest child-care costs). Instead of paying for President Trump’s vacations, taxpayers could have sent 3,140 students to college in Wyoming (with the lowest in-state tuition) or 815 students to college in New Hampshire (with the highest in-state tuition) this year.”)

Saw this on someone's desk at work today.  All the billionaires net total worth is $7.7 Trillion Dollars!

 

Couldn't help to chuckle in how they phrased the article Meet the worlds 36 mini Trumps. :lol:

Trump's "vacation expenditures" will be more than all those of previous Presidents, put together.

Marsha Blackburn, FL Republican Rep who has received 700K from the telecom industry, was pushing for this (source:  Daily Beast).  Now somebody wants to raise money to buy and share her info.  Payback's a *****.
