Colorado is considering legislation to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. We're now at 172 electoral college votes, Colorado signing up would get us to 181. Similar rumblings in New Mexico and Indiana. If they get through then that'd get us up to 197. Still quite a bit short of 270, but if a big enough blue wave hits in 2020 in down-ticket races then we should be able to get this thing over the line and abolish the Electoral College (AKA affirmative action for rednecks) and restore democracy. Once we fix the gerrymandering problem there'll be no more right-wing coups d'etat.

So if California wasn't part of the US, Trump would have won the popular vote. The thing is though, California is part of the US.  ;D

That reminds me of Howard Wilkinson's quote: "we might have lost 1-0, but you have to remember that if they hadn't scored, we would have got a better result".

It also uses exactly the same logic as saying that if you didn't hate non-white people, you wouldn't be racist.

Are you judging someone by the color of their skin??

I have no problem with the colour of someone’s skin... when they try and change it that disturbs me slightly!

You “alt righters” seem to be getting worried about your boy... I can’t wait!!

And for his next trick the tangerine twerp says "the buck stops with everybody."

This is hilarious! I'm going to miss his daily idiocy when he's locked up.

Whatever happened to Democrats and honesty about immigration. Here's Obama in 2005. Spot the difference.

You don't need a wall you need immigration reform as both Chuck and Nancy have said numerous times . . . it's quite easy and as Trump has mentioned before he is taking FULL responsibility for the Government shutdown so let him own it.

Was shocked the other day when he admitted that Mexico aren't paying for the wall apparently it was a done deal!!

Who knew??

And which part of that do the Democrats no longer support. They have consistently supported border security measures. The only difference between them and your boy “Trump” is they want to be humane and intelligent about how they do it. Come on be honest .. it’s all those brown people coming to clean up your garbage and pick your fruit that scare you. Don’t hear Trump talking about walling off Canada or spending money on tracking Visa “overstays”.

Why are you being racist about this? It's about rule of law, not the color of skin. Democrats like Obama, Clinton, Pelosi and Schumer know this and have advocated barriers previously and warned about illegal immigration.  If you want to be honest it's all about not giving Trump a win on a campaign promise. Nothing else.

I was unaware eskimos were pouring through the northern border.
