Just think of how much money we're going to save when he can't go golfing every other day. This shutdown might end up balancing the budget.
Haha, he missed "his" party??
I'll put up 3:1 odds on the chance that Trump thinks he gets the day off during the federal shutdown and decides to go golfing.
Not that he needs a day off to golf, but still.
Well, it is the one year anniversary of his oh so successful presidency.
20:1 he blames the democrats.

Clever comment in the article:
Trump Mortgage: Shut down✓ Trump Airlines: Shut down ✓ Trump University: Shut down✓ Trump Casino:Shut down ✓ Trump Steak: Shut Down ✓ Trump Water: Shut Down✓ Trump Government: Shut Down✓
I mean it's not like Congress was split along party lines. When one party controls both houses plus the WH, that party takes the blame.
Oh look, another trump bankruptcy. My shock and surprise.
Love the Patriotism. Its sick and twisted that Republicans have been able to brand themselves as the "Party of Patriots," while supporting a man who welcomed interference from an adversarial foreign authoritarian government to get elected.
Republicans don't care about freedom, or the Constitution. Trump has been in violation of the Emoluments clause since the moment he became president, and Republicans have been silent. They could approve of the emoluments he receives, but they would rather allow violations to the Constitution than face the repercussions of being actually following it.
Now Arpaio is trying to get elected as a Republican... The man who was pardoned after being criminally convicted of targeting racial minorities and putting them into what he described as "concentration camps". Its so fucking Orwellian, and I get sick every time they pretend that they care about religions freedom, or American values. It steals the language and identity from the people who aren't being disgusting hypocrites. I consider myself a Patriot, but if I say that out loud, I’ll get associated with the hypocritical Republican extremists.
I started /sub/newpatriotism months ago because I'm sick of these twisted extremists telling the people who actually stand for Freedom, Equality, and Justice that they're anti-American. The people resisting the Republican agenda are the ones that are actually standing up for American values and trying to make their country a better place.

Arpaio is the scum of the Earth. In my opinion, pardoning him was one of the very worst things Trump has done since being elected.

Love it, just subscribed
Unfortunately many of them will still be re-elected anyhow especially if they've carved out a nice safe district for themselves.
Public humiliation and shaming is a tactic that should be used more against Trump supporters.
Get what you voted for you idiots.
You can't reason with the unreasonable though. I understand what you say and agree with its moral tenets but we've reached a point where these people have essentially placed their love of low-minded bigotry above their own well-being. They abjectly refuse the help of the only political entity that has demonstrated any goodwill towards them, and for what? A bunch of red hats? The chance to believe that their plight is due to the Blacks or Muslims or lazy/hardworking/incompetent/job-stealing Mexicans? Sure we can "hear what they have to say" but please recognize that if history is any indication it'll be mindless drivel that undermines their own best interests- and the rest of the country's.
I feel for Union workers. They thought he was going to protect them, they fell for his words because they let themselves get clouded in hate/fear.
As they recognize and call Trump out for what he is, let's not chastize them for their initial support because attacking them plays right into Trump's hands. He's counting on you all to attack them, because that just drives them closer to him.
Trump's whole platform is based on hate, the more you hate his supporters, the more powerful he becomes. You can't put out a fire with more fire, you have to respond to Trump's supporters with compassion and understanding, not hate.
Hear them out, try to understand where they're coming from, if you disagree with something they say (as I do on pretty much every platform) explain why you believe what you do.
They're starting to come out of the ether.
I realize most of the right wing has the memory of a goldfish with Alzheimer's, but I really wish Sanders would stop acting like the rest of us do
Well by that logic no racist has ever been employed anywhere.
"If Trump's a racist, why did I sell out my integrity to stand up here and and lie to the press every day?" - S.H.S.
If peeing your pants is cool, call me Miles Davis
Man, they were really counting on her winning, weren't they?
I fully support this. We all need a reminder on how it is possible to expel president from office for sexual misconduct.
Seems really relevant and useful right now. Might as well keep people informed on the process since we're going to be going through it soon.
This might be good. There will be the inevitable moment where Trump supporters will realize, "Wait a minute. The shit Clinton got impeached for is the same shit I've been telling libtards to quit overreacting about while defending Trump."

you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
It's amazing that Trump paid $130,000 in hush-money to a porn star, and that isn't even crazy enough to break through the rest of Trump's shithole of news. Thanks, Republicans!
Remember Obama and how peaceful we could be knowing we had a thoughtful leader and overall decent human being?
Ah, sorry, I forgot, he was black. Bad Obama!
This is how current authoritarian regimes work in practice.
It's much easier to control a country through an avalanche of continuous scandal and corruption than with an army in the streets. Putin Pedik has been using a rough outline of this for over 20 years. It should surprise anyone that his US proxy and the compromised Republican Party picked up on the trend.
Remember when they impeached a president over a blowjob
Is it really bigger than assaulting 25 women? I don’t think so. Millions of women voted for him even after knowing about the sexual assault.
That's why he was successful. He spoke at the level of the people who voted for him. Fourth graders have little concept of anything except what matters to them personally.
Imagine making George W. Bush look well spoken. Somehow he managed that.
This is the shit that happens when Republicans continually defund education. Stupid, easily manipulated people. In other words, the ideal Republican.
I saved a quote from one of his base, "Yeah but, he says what he honestly feels because he uses white and black language and doesn’t give you all these flowery descriptions about everything."
