Trump tweet, 2011: "@BarackObama has a record low 39% Gallup approval rating. Why so high?" Me, today: @realDonaldTrump has a record low 36% Gallup approval rating. Why so high?

it is kinda weird that it's still as high as it is tho considering how consistently he fails and how consistently he lies.

I find it hilarious that he never deletes any of these contradictory tweets.

That'd be a full-time job.

Still super early in his presidency. A lot of people take a while before they admit they made a mistake with their vote.

Trump administration sought to block Sally Yates from testifying to Congress on Russia. Sure seems like an administration that has something to hide.

NBC NEWS: On Friday, Sally Yates' attorney notified Congress she would testify on Flynn & Russia....

Crooks.

Every once in a while I browse Breitbart to see what people on the crazy side of the fence are reading.

It's pretty amazing how underreported this is and how, even now, most of the articles publishing there are fused with deep islamaphobic ideals.

I would have thought they would have forged a better defense over there about the Russian contacts. But instead, it's just not really being reported much at all.

We truly do live in a world with two different realities now.

So the Trump admin tried to silence Yates bureaucratically, then the Devin Nunes clown show happened and ruined the HIC. Lock them all up.

Oh, Breitbart is running the made-up scandal the right invented to confuse their voters. The instant the Russia collusion scandal hit, They invented the "Obama illegally wiretapped trump to rig the election" narrative and that's what they report. Now those Trump supporter dolts are convinced Obama's the bad guy and the press is making up stories about trump and Russia. It's quality lying and propaganda, I have to admit but people had better smarten the fuck up.

Georgia Dems normally raise $10,000 for this House seat. This April they’ll have $3 million.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: the midterms are going to be a bloodbath. Even with all the awful problems with gerrymandering, an enthusiastic, fired up base always trounces a deflated base.

Only if Dems actually focus on them for once.

In 2006 the Democratic party was focusing on strategy which emphasized the importance of local and state elections. Around 2010ish they adopted this weird obsession with being super protective of the presidency and pretty much just left everything else to its own devices. The outcome was disappointing as you can see today. They are saying if the Democratic party actually were to support candidates further down the ticket and put money and effort into difficult races they would win some of them.

They did it in 2006 and they can do it again.

Trump Shows Contempt For American Institutions

Trump Shows Contempt For American Institutions

The platform he literally ran on was "America Sucks"

Look at ALL THIS CARNAGE!

Seriously his inauguration speech was fucking crazy as balls.

Think about his doom and gloom speech, then consider his team was trying to have the military supply vehicles for the parade. Now think of the parades and speeches of dictators. Military shows of power and fear is his bag, baby.

Yes, we know. He literally shows it every time he does anything. He basically campaigned on a platform of "America is a hellhole, I alone can fix it."

Guy r/esisting by the Lincoln Memorial.

Guy r/esisting by the Lincoln Memorial.

That's a god damn American hero right there!

this guy is right to question, because the answer to all his questions is NO, NO IT WILL NOT MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

education made america great. that thing they are cutting funding for.

I just figured out the meaning or /sub/esist... I feel really fucking stupid right about now.

We've never been that great at education, sadly.

You know what made America great? We stole all the smart, educated, and motivated people from other countries. Immigrants. That's what makes it work. That is what has always made us superior.

Leaving your homeland is difficult for so many reasons...Not everyone is wired to give up everything they know and go to live in a foreign land. Those people are at least a little impressive, and we've gotten great on their labor.

I'm saying this as an American whose family has been here for about 250 years. This isn't personal bias. It's fact.

The Trump administration wants to kill the popular Energy Star program because it combats climate change

The Trump administration wants to kill the popular Energy Star program because it combats climate...

The President (or a ruler of ANY country) should have good reasons for doing things, not just to be spiteful. I really don't see where the Energy Star program is hurting anything. It is very helpful info.

I imagine most people buy Energy Star-rated products because it saves them money each month on their energy bills, not because it combats climate change.

It does two things Republicans hate: saves poor people money and helps protect the environment.

Everyone knew what kind of President he would be during the election season. He's a political prostitute. He's selling himself to whoever has the scratch, and he needs to be stopped

Edit; know to knew,

And this has now become my highest rated comment..

And obligatory: If the people complaining about my views on this man wish to post sources, proofs, and like to argue my point then please do.

This man's MO is gutting anything he gets his little hands on, selling it out from under the people involved, and netting a profit for the people who hired him.

Think well on who's looking to profit from the guy gutting everything, and taking golf outings every week.

We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning

0-4 if you count Mexico not paying for the wall.

Isn't he 0 for 3 now? Both "Travel Bans" and now this?

0-5 if you count the plan to defeat ISIS that someone else other than Trump was tasked with making up

“The bombshell revelation that U.S. officials have information that suggests Trump associates may have colluded with the Russians means we must pause the entire Trump agenda. We may have an illegitimate President of the United States currently occupying the White House.”

Its not a bombshell until they removed phrases like "may have" and "possible" and "hints towards" until there is something concrete I suggest none of you get your hopes up and perhaps demand actual proof.

Now get 20 Republicans to sign on.

Surely there's at least 20 Republicans with integrity and principles left...? Right?

::crickets::

Again, what we know right now is that Paul Manafort was paid 10 million per year to advance Putin's interests at the highest level of the US government. He was the Trump campaign manager for 6 months. That should be enough to, for example, stop confirmation hearings to appoint a SCOTUS judge.

Elizabeth Warren: The FBI Director testified that Donald Trump's campaign is under investigation for collusion w/ Russia. Lifetime court appointments can wait.

McConnell sat on the Garland nomination, not even letting it come up up for a vote, for 11 months, because of a bullshit "precedent" that he invented where a president in the last year of his term doesn't get his nominations voted on.

I'd say it's only fitting that we sit on this nomination as well, because Trump might have less than 11 months left in his presidency, especially if this FBI investigation picks up steam.

Friendly reminder that at the time of the election only one candidate was under FBI investigation, and it wasn't Hillary Clinton.

"No Gorsuch confirmation until exoneration" is a bit of a clumsy phrase; can you guys think of a better one?

they pretty much created a precedent now. Its very much arguable. oopsies.

If the GOP can hold up Scalia's seat for a year for no good reason at all, then Dems can hold it up for good reason a little while longer.

House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump // The GOP Chair of the Oversight Committee rushed to the WH to inform the subject of a criminal investigation about developments in that investigation. We need an Independent Commission, and we need one now.

AAAAANNNNNND it's already being painted as vindication of Trump's wiretapping claims over on T_D. Never mind that this this is incidental surveillance, that it wasn't ordered by Obama or Intelligence Agency, and that it didn't target Trump's phones or Trump Tower.

They are not questioning who leaked the information, they are not questioning why the intelligence might have been gathered, and they are not questioning the process through which Nunes informed the White House or the Country.

They are just happy that their leader was found to be under surveillance.

That's a bizarre reason to be happy.

And why isn't there an independent prosecutor yet? I don't understand how they can drag around while they loot the country.
