    The President Donald Trump Thread

    There are plenty of white Democrats criticizing the current administration and government. Are you seriously suggesting that it's merely coincidence that the only ones told to "go back" to their countries were brown women? Okay, maybe it's not just racism, but a good measure of misogyny as well.

    If the majority of people being criticized are people of color, then the person doing the criticizing needs to do some serious introspection on the possibility that they may be a racist. That is a general statement and not directed at anyone specifically.

    I was just reading about this. The last thing in the world we need is for the GOP to take up the anti-vaxx mantle. In addition to calling reports of a measles epidemic "fake news," Ms. Shine keeps referencing a CNN report as her "evidence" that wild measles put a cancer patient in remission, the implications being that letting our kids actually get the measles would be protective. She clearly didn't read the article carefully. For one thing, the FIVE patients were not given measles (the disease), they were given a "highly concentrated dose of lab engineered measles virus" with enough virus to "inoculate 10 million people." Sounds like an altered vaccine... ONE of the five patients went into a remission which lasted 9 months. None of the other subjects achieved remission. It's promising enough that a phase II clinical trial is in the works. However, nowhere in the study or the conclusions is there any mention that suffering from wild measles disease will cure or prevent cancer. Ms. Shine has been informed by countless Twitter responders about her misunderstanding, but she continues to double down on this dangerous claim. https://www.cnn.com/2014/05/15/health/measles-cancer-remission/index.html So this woman is either incredibly ignorant or willfully dishonest. In the past, antivaxxers were spread across the political spectrum. Having a high profile GOPer spreading this nonsense is about as dangerous as it gets, given that many of Trump's supporters are being converted to his anti-science philosophy and tend to believe his constant assertions that anything which runs counter to his own version of reality is "fake news."

    Presidential Election 2020

    Yeah, I acknowledge that women did well in the midterms, a very encouraging thing. But I don't know that the country is ready to give the BIG JOB to a female. I hope if there is a qualified moderate female candidate (party no longer that relevant to me given what's gone down and/or been revealed in the last two years), I will be shown to be mistaken. But I'm not as optimistic as you are. This is one of the rare times I would love to be proven wrong.

    Presidential Election 2020

    I'm absolutely disgusted that the RNC has backed Trump. If the Democrats don't come up with some very strong leadership with broad appeal, they are going to lose again. There is still so much sexism in the USA right now (and some of the worse offenders are women), I'm not sure any female candidate could win the Presidential election right now. The Democrats may be shooting themselves in the foot if they put forward a female or far left liberal candidate of either gender.
  6. I still haven't decided what I think of her or her performance so far. Sheesh, it's only late January!

    It could be that they believe that a)the border wall will not secure the border or solve the "immigration problem," and that b)Trump promised numerous times on camera that MEXICO WOULD PAY FOR IT. Do people not realize that there are portions of the border where it would not even be physically possible to build this wall? This whole thing seems like a tactic to appease a population who knows little about the region being discussed and who doesn't understand the impossible logistics involved here. It's a high priced attempt to make people believe that a 15 foot wall will keep out "the bad people."

    Would be nice to know just exactly what Putin has on Trump that makes him jump to Putin's finger snaps.

    I don't know many people who are "pro abortion", even if very liberal. They simply believe that every pregnant woman should be able to make that decision for herself. Therefore they are actually pro choice. Many people who would not have an abortion under any circumstances are nevertheless pro CHOICE.

    The Caravan

    The film Wag the Dog is an excellent fictional example of what probably happens quite often with administrations wanting to deflect attention from their doings.

    That will never happen. They defend , or at best, minimize EVERYTHING.

    Yep, some of them talk a big "voter fraud" scenario when the results are close, but if they are declared the winner, all of a sudden the process is completely legit.

    What comes to mind when you hear Donald Trump ?

    Come on, SC RN Dude. I didn't vote for Obama, and yet I still understand that Trump blows him away in the lying category. And it's absolutely unacceptable.

    Just when you think he can't say anything more ignorant, he does it again.

    One of the members here expressed skepticism that voter suppression was going on or that this is something anyone would even promote. This is just one of many examples of it: Republican candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith was recorded on video saying the following: "And then they remind me, that there's a lot of liberal folks in those other schools who that maybe we don't want to vote. Maybe we want to make it just a little more difficult. And I think that's a great idea." Nov 2nd in Columbus, MS. Her spokesman said she was just "exercising her sense of humor."
