I would add stew, just how are people supposed to react to his daily lies and provocations?

Let it slide? Ignore him?

Heís the f**king president, and he carries on like a deranged, big mouth drunk in the corner of the pub.

I get that youíre delighted that he pisses off liberals. One must question why he doesnít piss YOU off however.

He does on a daily basis, every friggin day, that said like you lot I have an agenda and that agenda does not need me piling on this feckin eejit of a prez every day, like you lot I tend to highlight the lefts shit, just as you lot do the right.

Trump is no republican and I have no gra for the man but again I do love it when he f**ks off the liberals at every turn, the more stress he causes the f**kers the better in my opinion.
Armagh, the one true love of a mans life.

I do love how Nancy Pelosi called the extra money in workers pockets "crumbs"

Every second of the day there's a Democrat telling a lie

Trump and his allies have deployed endless euphemisms to cover up a basic fact: Trumpism is a reaction to the *ethnic and racial* mix of the U.S. population. It is *white* nationalism. That mask has now been torn off for good

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/blogs/plum-line/wp/2018/01/12/trump-just-denied-his-shithole-comment-in-the-process-he-confirmed-the-worst

Trumpism is heavily driven by a reactionary backlash to the current ethnic and racial mix of the U.S. population ó it is white nationalism, despite all the what-me-racist protestation to the contrary.

Trumpís comments also reveal that this basic truth is shaping the White Houseís policy stances in the current immigration debate, something that is also being obscured with all sorts of rhetorical trickery. Trumpís comments have upended the negotiations underway over a deal to protect the ďdreamers.Ē But it can no longer be denied that Trump opposes the deal at least in part because it does not do enough to resist or roll back ongoing racial and demographic trends.

In light of Trumpís apparent claim that he wants to prioritize people from countries such as Norway, the uglier white nationalist cast of all of this is inescapable. Trumpís fellow travelers have gone to great lengths to obscure this basic reality. In a now-infamous exchange, CNNís Jim Acosta asked White House immigration hard-liner Stephen Miller whether Trumpís policies are designed ďto engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country.Ē Miller reacted with outrage and repeatedly cast the goal as reducing the mere numbers of immigrants ó ostensibly to protect U.S. workers from competition ó which he said was in keeping with previous periods of lower immigration.

It is very hard to disentangle the goal of reducing the overall numbers of immigrant arrivals from the goal of shifting our current ethnic and racial mix. But Trump has now left little to no doubt that the real animating impulse is the latter.

all these assholes getting might offended about a reported slur saying "shithole country".
If you are offended about your shithole being a shithole then do something about fixing it.

i didn't see any country being named but by f**k they are all jumping on the bandwagon. Probably looking for more funds to keep their plebs poor and themselves rich.

lots of gold presidential palaces in africa. why is that?

all i can say is
#ME TOO PERMANENTLY OFFENDED

Every second of the day there's a Democrat telling a lie

He pisses you off every day, but you come here reveling in the fact that he pisses us off too, trying to dress it up as some kind of failing on our part and whining (ludicrously) yesterday that "they hate him no president has ever been hated since Lincoln".

All right then. Congrats to you!

I do, I hate with a passion your main causes, Abortion, BLM, I hate Trump bashing, the lack of accountability and corruption in your party, the cop hating, the fact that you added over 60 new ways for a male or a female to desribe themselves, tranny bathrooms, the unbelievable debt the left put the USA in, Benghazi, Clinton, Russia, Fake News, safe spaces, cop killings, frying em like bacon etc, your hollywood heroes molesting and harassing women and again not taking accountability fr any of this, there is more, plenty more but these are reasons I love to see liberals squirm and get stressed when that clampett Trump drops another clanger, and the best, the absolue best part of al of this is...he has always been a Democrat!!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I actually agree with Stew to an extent......with progressives finding offense at the silliest most ridiculous "slights", I have to chuckle when Trump gives them something to be really offended by.

In another note, I find it suspicious that news of the settlement with the porn star came less than a week after Bannon got canned from Breitbart

Spare us the sanctimony. The right wing movement is based completely on resentment and a fake persecution complex. Yeah, Ryan and the Koch brothers are most concerned with tax cuts and regulation abolishment, but the movement gains its power from pushing those buttons.

Eh......I never said they weren't.....I was just responding to a prior poster.

Those on the right are just as easily triggered, just by a different set of (non) issues.

We can't say witch hunt here in Massachusetts anymore , because seemingly it's offensive to witches

Repeating your bullshit grievances more than once doesn't add much affect to your litany stew. Neither does including conspiracy theories like Benghazi as you rant about "fake news".

1. Lack of accountability: The DNC chair got the boot. So did Franken and Conyers. Why don't you tell us about GOP accountability? Tell us how they've opposed the goings on at Fox News, their media wing. Tell us how they're holding this charlatan of a president accountable. Tell us how the RNC rowed in behind the adolescent enthusiast Tell us how the GOP leadership held their party and presidential candidates to account for birtherism, for Jade Helm and the like.

2. With respect to LGBT stuff - which is better? Arguable overkill on the part of advocates, or naked bigotry, denial of legitimacy and attempts to legislate legal discrimination as espoused by the right?

3. BLM - we've been over this before, as per usual, but if you are going to define an entire movement by one chant at one march and use that to deny the legitimate concerns of these people with respect to treatment at the hands of police, then that says more about you and your issues than it does about BLM or the Democratic party. Further, according to your logic, demands that police be held to account equates to bigotry against police. A curious attitude from someone who grew up in Armagh when you did. And seriously, only a complete f**king moron would try to claim that liberals and/or the Democratic Party are for "cop killings".
