Time for Trump to go

Some folks just cannot resist the urge to debate current issues of the day...here's the place to satisfy your craving. BE FOREWARNED - if you are an intellectual lightweight, you might find it a bit rough in here. This place is kinda like a never-ending edition of the McLaughlin Group.

Time for Trump to go

Post by 1027BrianFM » Sat Aug 19, 2017 1:13 am

Were 8 months into this experiment of putting a former reality TV star and businessman in the Whitehouse. In all honesty, this is a disaster! This man scares me, I think he's mentally unfit for this job. If there ever was a case to Invoke the 25th, this is it. I don't see how this can go on for 3 1/2 more years let alone 7 1/2. I wasn't a fan of Obama, didn't vote for him either time but he was at least sane. Never imaged anything like this happening.

Don't worry. they'll be carrying him off in a straitjacket any day now. He's completely mad.

The elected members of his party are beginning to realize it, but his base supporters are still defending him. They compare him to Obama or Hillary, saying he's better than them. What they need to do is compare him to senior, respected members of his own party.See if he even comes close to measuring up. He doesn't.

The Republican party has some fine and decent people. This guy isn't one of them.

I think if Trump gets the boot Kasich could be become VP. Which would bring some credibility in as he didn't support trump in the general election and has spoken out against him before. Kasich here in Ohio has been a decent governor, more then I can say for his counterpart in Michigan. I kind of like Asa Hutchinson, the governor of Arkansas as well.

It would take for someone like John McCain to call for his resignation to get others to speak up. Trump has some serious mental issues along with being a narcissist.

Brian

You're a bit slow to the uptake but welcome to the party. Grab some popcorn and watch the imploding party of fools.

From my perspective, it will be fun watching him take down the entire party. Republicans will lose the senate over this the way he he going.

Ted Cruz and Mike Pence are tight. No way he will select Kasich.

My, my.

So this is now the tipping point FINALLY for Donald Trump as POTUS - Commander in Chief of the US Military - Leader of the Free World.

As I have stated clearly many, many times on this board in many, many threads - only to be derided: the President of The United States of America is mentally ill. He has Narcissistic Personality DISORDER. Not just narcissistic tendencies.

He is text book classic in all of his NPD symptomatic words and behaviors.

Look it up.

He is slso a dime a dozen sociopathic con artist. And all the "fine people" and not fine people who were conned by him into voting for him now must put their country first and become true patriots.

We need patriotism. Not snarky D vs. R party fights. Wake up.

What shall we neo-patriots claim as the basis for our revolution?

Hurt feelings?

As a matter of actual actions, I can't think of much.

More Trump Derangement Syndrome on display.

The economy is humming along pretty nicely http://money.cnn.com/2017/08/07/investi ... index.html

Kim Jong Asshole has backed off (at least for now) in direct response to Trump's tough stance.

There hasn't been a single attack on US soil linked to ISIS since Trump took office.

Yet the left and even some moderates have completely lost their minds. TDS is the only plausible explanation.

Overall Trump is better than Obama.

The government need a good house cleaning.

This multi-front attack (based on strawmen, boogiemen and "feelings") is exactly what I would expect if any third-party candidate had ever won. This is a search for magic bullet.

Will it be mysogyny? Nepotism? Class envy (tax returns)? Fear (Russia)? Race? Etiquette?

So far, none of these dogs will hunt. Anti-Trumpers don't seem to grasp that pro-Trumpers aren't that invested in the man himself, they want any form of chemotherapy to cure government cancer.

TCtalks, I was never on The Trump train but I thought Hillary was a terrible candidate and the dems got what they deserved. All this said, I do agree this thing is imploding in real time.

Now wait just a god damn minute... I was saying this about the economy under Obama which Is really what Trumps is and it hasn't changed any because he hasn't done anything... I was dismissed as crazy by you folks for reporting that before the election... now a Republican gets in, NOTHING changes and it's "humming along"?!?! All thats new is a stock bubble forming 8 and a half years into the bull market and a recession in the next 1-2 years... stock prices are insanely overinflated and as we know from every other economic cycle what goes up must come down... Trump will feel the wrath of any recession or worse like every other president before him... so don't celebrate yet, just hope it's long enough that a Democrat gets in office when it goes down so that you get another president in office when that person gets blamed...

What exactly has Trump done that would improve the economy and stop ISIS so quickly exactly? There haven't been any major orders or laws affecting the economy... his administration is a mess and counter terror has barely been a subject... when and if an ISIS attack happens on his watch (we don't get many here anyways) you will look dumb...

Trump's North Korea remarks didn't affect Un that much... China saying they would let the regime be destroyed by the U.S. If Un attacked Guam was far more important...

Let's see ... GOP now turning agsinst Trump publically instead of just mumbling among themselves that he's unfit for office - or as I heard yesterday "psychologically unstable".

Today white supremisists and their Nazi vermin ilk are "rallying" out in the open minus disguise as they are (according to David Duke and other KKK-type slime) emboldened by this mentally ill POTUS.

And thousands of counter protestors have taken to the streets in Boston, Berlin, and other locales.

POTUS and porn wife won't attend Kennedy Honors. Afraid of being booed? Artists boycotting you, Trump? Can't imagine why!

Kim and other enimies of the US are thrilled to see our country in turmoil in the streets and everywhere under Trump's sick watch. Remember - Russia has always promised to "destroy (us) from within". Gee - wonder why Putin was so hot to trot to make certain Trump became our leader?

And the business community has now turned their backs on the self-avowed great budinessman!

Have you seen the honoree list (at least from Trump's perspective)?

Carmen de Lavallade - American actress, dancer and choreographer. (but hey, that name sounds a little fishy)
Gloria Estefan - Cuban-American ('nuff said)
LL COOL J - Whitest black guy since Karl Malone, but black none the less.
Norman Lear - Pinko Hollywood who made a fortune calling out Archie Bunker-types.
Lionel Richie - See LL COOL J above.

Accomplished Americans one and all, just not Trump's idea of what made this nation great.

If Trump should be afraid of anything it should be that Gloria Estefan will chase him down with a tambourine... (although I'd pay good money to see that)

Actually we do. And that's the problem. Some things you just can't overlook.

I don't recall ever responding to that particular thread.

At any rate - that's the entire point. If you thought the economy was good under Obama, and you think it is equally good under Trump, then what is the justification for booting Trump from office?

All that other exciting stuff... Russian collusion, his erratic behavior, the vehement opposition by a majority of the country...

Remember that impeachment and conviction then removal is whatever congress decides it is warranted by... if he reaches the end of his rope he is toast... if the Republicans decide Pemce is the better bet then he is toast...

Russian collusion - that story is losing steam fast.

Vehement opposition by a majority of the country - that existed even before he was elected. Not grounds for removal from office.

Erratic behavior - again, nothing new. I haven't seen anything worse since he's been President than what we saw in the primaries and in the general election.

If republicans decide to throw him under the bus, that would be the signing of their death wish. The republican party would be FINISHED. Trump has a 35-40% LOYAL following, and the vast majority of that resides within the republican party.

Quite frankly I think a more interesting scenario would be if Trump decided, while in office, to leave the republican party. I put the odds of that happening actually higher (albeit still small) than those of him being forced out of office.

To be honest Trump is the master of distraction... Russiagate will be back once Charlottesville dies down... my gut says he created the distraction on purpose with his comments...

Again, grounds for removal are whatever a majority of the house can agree upon... it doesn't have to be a crime... there's also the 25th amendment... why those 35-40% support a guy who hasn't done anything yet and has proven to be 100% inept and incapable of getting anything done is beyond me...it's one thing to be capable and loud, it's another to be a bully that has no bite and only barks loudly while everyone laughs openly at him... it's even been said that 90% of republicans in congress would prefer Pence be in there... at the point his approval dips into the 20's it'll become time to jettison him... you can't win with only Republicans... your party is too small.

He may have distracted the public. He may have distracted the media. But he didn't distract the Mueller committee. Its work goes on.
