It just so happened that the Outsider ran as an R and by and large, they were able to latch on to him late in the game despite their previous opposition. Swing voters didn't so much support R's in my mind, but more opposed the get nothing done status quo. It's perhaps unfair to Dems now, but it's hard to see how all out political warfare will win the hearts and minds of the swing votes when that very thing was a factor in motivating the swing vote to the outsider in the first place.
    Normally I agree but this is a different animal now. This isnt about winning hearts and minds...they tried that and it failed. People crave scandals and people to hate these days...and the top of the GOP ticket is giving them plenty. Dont let America forget this crap...if fake Hillary scandals can persist for years so can legit tD scandals.

    That is definitely true for the people around here who brought it up...

    Hearts and minds actually succeeded. Just not in the way you think. People are sick of identity politics. That doesn't make you have a heart. It may have worked for the last at least 50 years, but it isn't working now.

    Yep, keep calling us racists, sexists, homophobes, whatever term you want to come up with. You should have learned from 2016 that the guilt by association didn't work. And yet, you double down. Churchill was right, you really have no brain.

    Here's the NYTimes story.

    He's not responsible for anywhere near a majority of the threats or anything but still, this nutjob worked for the Intercept which is run by Glenn Greenwald and was fired for making stuff up a while back, some of it widely quoted. Glenn freaking Greenwald. He's the guy Snowden handed all the documents over to. What a bizarro world story.

    Guess what: this guy was. So what's your point? That Trumpism hasn't emboldened rightwing wackjobs who want to hurt people?

    No one voted for him yet there is always somebody on a full fledged apology tour in here. Makes zero sense.

    This about sums it up:

    "It is so pathetic that the Dems have still not approved my full Cabinet." --Donald Trump, morning of March 3rd

    He'll play that tune into next week. It's a selling point that our segmented media will report to the people who voted him into office. Since people can seclude themselves into their cloistered media, his detractors will hear all the bad things about the man while his supporters will think he farts gold dust.

    If the Republicans are going to ram through their Obamacare repeal, they better not let off the gas; area rubes are wisening up.

    I saw the picture of the guy and the headline and I got a certain picture in my head of what I was about to read: Stupid, fat, redneck dude shouting slurs and terrorizing these guys from behind the wheel of his 10 foot high confederate flag adorned monster truck. I confess that I probably need sensitivity training because I still laughed at the incongruity of this part--> "Davis allegedly chased after the men on his scooter"

    It's getting hot in here, so... on second thought, no, leave your clothes on.

    Stuff like this is why:

    (1) We need an independent investigator, and

    (2) We need all these witnesses deposed under oath.

    Trump is dumb or delusional enough to lie under oath -- he may actually not know the difference -- but his cronies won't, and the innocent bystanders certainly won't.

    This entire administration is based on lies and BS, and nobody in it has even a smidgen of loyalty either to or from Congress. Combine that with them p-ssing off the IC, and the number of people with an interest in herding the entire rotten bunch out the door, if not into federal prison, is starting to approach infinity.

    These dumbf-cks may not even make it to July 4.

    Think about it. It's only March 3. It's only been 39 days.

    It's called understanding the person's actually your President. Yes, Barry was my President for 8 years as well. If any of them do something worth defending, it'll be defended. The fact that some receive more defense than others will offend posters, but I couldn't give three hoots. I've called out Trump for what I believed to be bad ideas on here, including his wall. It's good at keeping people out, but it's also good at keeping people in.

    Alls I know is, morale is now a hell of a lot higher in the Flag household now that a nationalist is in.
