Well, if the Democratic party's leaders and the liberal media don't stop campaigning for Trump by vilifying his biggest competitor before the nomination is even awarded, Trump will probably win again, good job guys, I mean who needs friends with enemies like this.  ::)

Why do we put ourselves above all of God's other creatures? How is it that we are ruining the Earth when we are as much a natural part of the Earth as any living thing? We're no different from an ant building an anthill or a beaver building a dam; we reshape the Earth to make our lives easier. To suggest that what we're doing isn't part of the natural order of things is to ascribe a mystical, supernatural quality to our existence, which is something a self-professed atheist would generally be wise not to do as it comes off as hypocritical.

We haven't "trashed" the Earth. We've changed it, same as any other living thing. It will still be here after we're gone.

Is it me or are the moderates just being a bunch of stupid greedy schmucks right now? If they're so scared of a socialist in the White House why do they continue diluting the field against him with their hopeless campaigns? If so much is at stake why hasn't Klobuchar or Warren dropped out and paved the way for a potential Biden win? There's not much time left and no indication any of them plan to quit. It's kind of stunning, all that obstinacy is going to lead to is a socialist president as the best case scenario. ::)

Go Bernie!

Even so, beating Trump is my top priority.  Hell, I'd vote for another republican over Trump.
Don't you like low unemployment and a strong economy?  ???

Yes, all praise Barack Obama for getting our country out of one of its worst financial crises in history and starting the period of economic prosperity we're currently in.

Good on Trump for not fucking it up yet, I guess. I'm sure he's saving it for his second term like most Republican presidents (that's when the more unsavory aspects of his "massive tax cut" are set to kick in). Of course our national debt is soaring under his watch so it's not like it's all roses.

Does anybody else remember when the Republicans were supposed to be the party of "fiscal responsibility"?

You're buying that crock that it is Obama that did this for the economy?

I don't have to "buy" anything. I was there when the country was going to shit under Bush, and then wasn't after Obama took over. Why do Conservatives have such short memories?  ???

The banks broke the economy. Not Bush. Obama then presided over the slowest recovery in history.

Um, hello, the Great Depression?

If Trump is such a bad person, why is his popularity rising, in tandem with the confidence of the stock market?

Because people are suckers, Tom, but you already knew that. You've been taking advantage of it for your own amusement for over a decade now.

Apparently Democrats think he's most likely to beat Trump out of all the candidates. This is important because a lot of Democrats are putting ability to defeat Trump ahead of any other issues in the primaries.

Go Bernie!

The idiots that support Trump no matter what he does or how he behaves because economy/immigrants/courts/whatever will surely dismiss this article as hyperbole, if they even read it which many won't since they will immediately write it off as a product of the "Deep State" Trump and his sycophants in the media have scared them so much about, but look around. This is where we're at now. This is what's at stake in the coming election.

If you have a brain, prove it. Don't be a stupid Trump toady. Vote Democrat across the board, and maybe (just maybe, given the damage that's already been done to our democracy) we can reverse the trend.

I don't believe in conspiracy theories. I just know based purely on observation that the Earth is flat.

I highly doubt all the candidates know the Earth is flat, and if it's information the President is privy too (and I have my doubts about that personally) I would guess he's under enormous pressure to keep it a secret.

...  yet he’s done so much for the country.

He really hasn't done much positive.

Exactly.

Rolling back environment protection such that businesses can legally dump more waste into rivers than before.

Yeah, that's really doing something for the country....

Making the world a better place one polluted waterway at a time lol

I’d vote for a clinical psychopath if I knew he’d make the world a better place...

This is such a crazy statement lol. A Trump supporter saying sure he's nuts but the economy! I mean whatever qualifier you need to use to help justify your opinion to yourself I guess. But you must recognize how inane this statement is.

Hitler was good for Germany's economy too. Just saying lol maybe he got a bad rap too.  :D

Trump's supporters support everything Trump does. It's almost amazing how dumb they are,  like Rush's dittoheads, only even dumber. You think, like, how can someone be so dumb as to buy that this thing he's doing is good for our country, or isn't a disgusting abuse of his power of some kind, but then you realize this is a person who voted for Donald Trump in the first place, of course the bulb is a bit dim.

I honestly don't even know how to talk to a Trump supporter about Trump anymore. It's gotten too easy to get frustrated and call the Trump supporter a moron, because at this point what else are you supposed to think? As long as State Sponsored Propaganda tells them what Trump does is not only perfectly acceptable but actually benefits the country somehow, something Fox is always willing to do, they will never see reason to criticize Trump.

At this point you have to be a moron to still be supporting Trump, there's just no way around it. It's depressing that such a high percentage of the country is morons, but it is what it is as they say.

Didn't Barr know how loose Trump was with twitter before he accepted the job? He was tweeting sensitive military information, you really think he gives a shit about protecting the discretion of the Justice Department? You make a deal with the devil and you accept the consequences.

Not that I believe Barr for a minute that he hasn't made moves that were politically motivated. That's what makes this particular example of someone in Trump's cabinet whining about how Trump does things so delicious.

Some folks are of the opinion that what Barr really meant was that if Trump would shut up on Twitter, Barr could do his job of making things work in Trump's favour, and bending the rules for him, a lot easier ....

This.  Anyone who thinks Barr is criticizing Trump is being naive.

But really,  you're both saying that he is criticizing Trump. You're saying Barr's saying that Trump should shut the fuck up and just let Barr do his job of covering up his crimes and improprieties. That's clearly a criticism, and it addresses something I'm sure Barr finds exasperating.

I thought there was probably an element of "WHAAAT? MEEEE act INAPPROPRIATELY?" in it too. In the midst of criticizing his boss he happens to make it clear this decision about Roger Stone wasn't influenced by Trump, and (lmao) Trump has never actually asked him to do anything inappropriate.

Yeah right lol

Three times as many voters in the Iowa caucus than usual, twice as many in the New Hampshire primary... it gives hope that enough Democrats will actually vote in the main election this year to get Trump out. It could be a goddam mandate.

Go Bernie!


??? Trump is going to win by a mile. The democrats will eat each other before the election and Pelosi has made them look like a bunch of nut-jobs. What a ghastly witch. Neutral voters will be turned off by the dems ... crazy AOC with her starey eyes, Schiff with his boggley eyes, Sanders with his wild eyes or Biden with his very very old and tired eyes. No one is going to vote Dem if they voted Trump last time. He's only more popular now. Personally, I like his Tweets. Love watching the media squealing and squealing as Trump whips out zinger after zinger. If I was American, I'd vote to Make America Great Again ... because I wouldn't want to betray my country by voting for a communist.

I wouldn't rule out the possibility that Trump will get more votes as well. But if this surprising and out-of-character lack of empathy on the part of the Democrats continues, and is consistent nationwide, he won't win. He lost the popular vote to one of the least popular candidates in recent history by 3 million. Imagine if he's up against somebody people actually like, and the Dems come out in force.
