It is astounding the intense hatred on display daily. This kind of pseudo-intellectual garbage born of being absolutely poisoned by hate says a lot more about the sick twisted, false narrative author, than it ever could about President Trump. And these hate infected cretins aren't satisfied with hating President Trump, they are so sick and twisted, they insult and hate millions of Americans, because they had the nerve to disagree with them. Disgusting.

When it comes to the divisiveness of today's politics, I am beginning to think that the Russians that spent so much money and effort to swing the election to put this fox ( aka Trump) in the hen-house…must have spent a goodly amount of money on a roomful of social psychologists also.

They want Trump to call American laws that have stood for 250 years…unlawful…. and he has brought that idea into question many times.

They know he is un-educated, so he will know nothing of American or global history, laws or processes. As a classic, classless blowhard, he will loudly deride what he does not understand. He has done just that with every legitimate American institution that we have trusted since 1776.

They expect Trump to create divisiveness in the people by using politics as a wedge. Again, Trump plays right into their efforts by telling lies to a certain sector of the American populace who can identify with his lies and in turn becomes a cult following. Those that remember the Jones cult in Guyana will identify with what Trump is doing. His lies are so believable to these poor people, there is no other truth but Trump.
They know Trump can talk a line of BS and outright lies that sounds so very convincing. They know he has spent a lifetime conning everyone possible in business and life. No one will know what to expect him to start blabbering on or lying about next which will sow never-ending chaos. So it has come to pass.

That he is so self-serving and greed-driven this will conflict with what we expect of a fair president and that this will cause very questionable behavior on his and his major republican supporter's part.

They know that a segment of the Republican Party, driven by the same greed as Trump's, will join him, defend him and push him further with whispers in his ear. They will use him as a malleable chump to destruct parts of our laws and land so they can put their fingers in the biggest jackpot ever offered to them, the taxpayers of America.

They could not have chosen a better person of the job of taking American values apart, denying the freedoms we have enjoyed since the Bill of Rights was signed or to do a good job of backstabbing the very people that he claims to work for. Trump has spent a good portion of his presidency working with his political and financial backers dismantling the law and economic structure of our land so that they can reap the economic benefits of free tax money. It's all there in black and white cross-indexable print.

His ego is so powerful, his empathy so lacking, that he feels nothing as he hugs the American flag one moment to show his supporters that he loves the land, then sits down and signs an executive order that rolls back a regulation that will poison thousands of his own people the very next moment. (the dumping of toxins into the waterways rollback, etc.)

He will stand in front of thousands of his supporters, talk (lie) for an hour about how (bigly) America will be under his direction. A virtual sea of red MAGA hats will cheer him on, the adulation washed over him as a wave of ‘we love you Trump’, ‘ you're our god because you care about us little people’ and he will exhort them to ‘be patriots’ and ‘be his people’. He and his twisted egotism feeds off these poor folks grand dreams and expectations. He plays them like the proverbial fiddle. The very next day, he signs a budget that was a direct attack on those very same people that cheered him on, voted for him, thinks of him as a god among men. He and his helpers signed a proposal that would take huge amounts of food from the mouths of his own support base , their children, their parents. He signed that proposal that would take away many needed schoolteacher and after-school programs, indeed the whole public education system and put it directly into the hands of his friends in the private education sector. They would not even be able to afford to go to school. They would remain ignorant, which is right where he and his republican backers want them.

Trump's people (seem to) have no idea, they don’t even seem to care.

That is how bad Trump can eat souls like some kid eats candy.

If there is one thing about America today that can truly be called fake, it is Donald Trump.

A few things, Slat....
First off, "American Laws" have NOT "stood for 250 years." As a matter of fact, 250 years ago it was 1769. Last time I looked, the Declaration of Independence was not published until July 4, 1776; the Articles of Confederation were not ratified until 1781, and our Constitution was not ratified until 1788 and it did not become the law until March of 1789.

Which US laws has he called into question that we have trusted since before we had US laws? (Or for that matter, a US anything)?
In 1776, we had a Declaration of Independence. A Continental Congress who could not agree on what was law and what was not. Two hundred and fifty years ago we were British colonies.
This Internet Opinion that claims Trump is ignorant reeks of ignorance, and a lack of knowledge of basic US history that can be Googled in a matter of seconds.
The author of this Internet Opinion appears to be a product of the educational system he or she champions; since it is composed completely of lies, misstatements and misrepresentations.
Pot/Kettle, Pigeons/Chessboard, Glass houses/rock throwers.

If you like, I will be happy to debunk the rest of this drivel when I have a couple of minutes. I'll bet you just posted this to stir up crap, dincha?

I shudder each time I think how close the stupid and ignorant lefties came to electing the bat-crap crazy (and fake) Hildabitch, .... and also the fact that the fools of the left still think Trump was the worst choice.


Typical left wing drivel. Lies, generalizations, and crap. As I posted in my response, the "laws we trusted 250 years ago" were British because we were still colonies in 1769. There were no US laws because there was no US.
It just gets stupider from there.

Actually, I don't think any of us know the real Donald Trump. My sense is that the jury is still out. We'll have to leave it to history and future generations to figure out.

One last thought. I don't know what some think of Cris Christi, but he was in Donald Trump's corner during the campaign and was part of Trumpy's transition team before being ousted by Jerad Kursner, Trumpy's son-in-law.

Well, Slatts, it looks as if you've really opened up a can of worms! I'm not one to begrudge someone having an opinion different from mine and, in almost all cases, I'm eager to debate him/her on those points, as long as he/she is willing to debate on merit and without ad hominem attacks or just being nasty. However, this piece was obviously not offered in that vein, as it begins with negative and derogatory comments and continues with them throughout. It sounds as if he/she is talking down to a three year old and not allowing for the possibility that the Trump supporter might actually be a well-educated, well-read person, capable of discernment and good judgment. Sounds like my sister-in-law who told me she was married to a fake for 40 years and she knew how to recognize a fake.(Trump, that is) Now there's a really logical bit of reasoning for you. Anyway, I think that most of us are solid enough in our convictions that disagreements, especially of the kind in discussion, are not going to upset us too much. Good to hear from you again. Bernie

So, you think that we have had "American Laws" since 1769? This "opinion" is nothing but accusations and generalizations. The only things even approaching a specific are incorrect, and easily shown to be so.

When I wrote "I would not contest your pointing out the error(s) in historical text," I was referring to that 250 year comment, and your reply. I will have to work on my clarity, as I seem to have fallen short twice with you today.
