    Steven, he’s exactly what I expected from a petty, vindictive, narcissistic, CEO-autocrat type of personality. I’m generally cynical, however I have to admit, he’s worse than I thought he’d be. And, a lot worse is yet to come.

    The best liberals can hope for is that there are enough distractions that will impede Trump and Republicans from implementing their 1928 Restoration Agenda in the first hundred days.

    Yes, he’s a liar, but that’s not news as every rational adult has known that about him for years. But he’s who Republicans want and support as President. Remember this the next time you hear “both sides are bad”.

    Yep, been a wk. & now the grim reality begins: Turning on those who helped us in Iraq.

    Helluva job, Trumpy!
