Will you stop. I'm agreeing with all that. What I'm saying is that by coming across as so smug and terribly smart, they are alienating people who then end up voting for the knob. Did you not learn anything from that last election? You have to play the electorate, you have to speak to them, not preach to them. Colbert and the other lads were preaching. Trump was speaking to them. He was talking absolute unmitigated bullshit, but he knew what he was doing.
Trump listened to them got elected and is now betraying them. It is very sad.

Its awful isnt it.

Of course the dems have never ever ever ever ever done that to their constituents.

Armagh, the one true love of a mans life.

Some nice Republican senators they have in Wisconsin

Quote
Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin suggested in a radio interview that colleague John McCain’s cancer and the very late hour might have played a role in McCain's dramatic and decisive vote last month against a GOP bill to roll back Obamacare.

Johnson was asked on “Chicago’s Morning Answer” Tuesday about the vote McCain took that effectively ended a Republican push this summer to repeal Obamacare.

“I am not going to speak for John McCain. You know, he has a brain tumor right now. That vote occurred at 1:30 in the morning. Some of that might have factored in,” Johnson said on AM-560 in Chicago in comments first reported Wednesday by CNN.

“Really?” asked co-host Amy Jacobson, referring to McCain’s surgery for a blood clot and subsequent flight to Washington for the late July Senate health care debate. It was McCain's surgery that revealed the presence of brain cancer.

“You really think that that played a factor in his judgment call?" she asked Johnson.

“Again, I don’t know exactly what — we really thought that — again I don’t want to speak for any senator,” said Johnson. “I really thought John was going to vote yes to send that to conference at 10:30 at night. By about 1 or 1:30 (in the morning), he voted no. You’d really have to talk to John about what was on his mind.”

McCain spokeswoman Julie Tarallo responded Wednesday:

“It is bizarre and deeply unfortunate that Senator Johnson would question the judgment of a colleague and friend. Senator McCain has been very open and clear about the reasons for his vote.”

Trump is locked and loaded.

1. Trump says we are "Locked and Loaded"? We haven't even made basic preparations for war fighting that will happen if our B1s & SSBNs fire.

@MalcolmNance
2. NK could launch massive snap attacks within minutes of an attack. Pacific command logistics, amphibious ships & Marines NOT at ready.

                         @MalcolmNance
 
3. National ammunition logistics train NOT READY. Army/Marine alerts NOT READY. USAF air bridge NOT READY. Medical mobilization NOT READY.

 
@MalcolmNance
4. We are NOT READY for even a small action size of Libya much less Korean War 2.0. This talk of Locked & Loaded is irresponsible madness.

Taking insurance away from 23 m people would qualify as mass murder. When did the Dems do anything similar ? For the sake of a tax cut for the Kochs.

Trump's conversation with Guam is beyond parody at this stage.

Ted Cruz refused to endorse Trump last year. It makes him look.like a statesman now.

The KKK re involved as well.

Blacks are being systematically pushed off voting rolls in GOP states by the DoJ led by Sessions. It's Jim Crow 2.0
I Wonder if there will be any lynching

And confederate flags. The choice of losers
