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

Why didn't the stocks crash when Trump was impeached? Why did they soar when he was acquitted? Why did the stocks soar when he was elected, rather than crash as predicted?

Almost as if Trump is objectively good for America.

The Democratic Party has gotten too extreme to be a viable political party and has been in its death throws since the election, screaming and lying and failing every day. The re-election of Donald Trump will finish it off.

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.

1. His popularity is polarized, not rising.  Republicans love him because they're told only UnAmerican, liberal commies hate Trump.  And who would wanna be that?  They also are told that anyone who hates Trump or criticizes him is evil and are actively trying to destroy America.  So yeah, most republicans support him.  Because if they don't, the enemy wins.

2. Trump is good for rich people.  Rich people play the stocks.  The stocks didn't crash because Trump being impeached didn't mean much.  He wasn't gonna be removed and everyone knew it.  Hell, McConnel flat out said it.

3. Good stocks (unless Trump tweets something thst upsets prices, as he often does) may be a good thing, but its not the only way to determine 'objectively good'.  Communism was objectively good for the USSR for decades.  Why are you against communism?

And the winner of the Democratic Debate is...



Did you see it?

Here is a summary:

Q. How will we decrease crime?

A. We gotta beat Trump!!

Q. How will we improve the economy?

A. We gotta beat Trump!!

Q. How will we fix __________?

A. We will fix it by having a woman president!!

A trash debate with trash candidates. If the Democratic Party actually had a desirable platform they would be succeeding. They do not have a compelling platform which people need or want. Trump had a more compelling platform and this is why he won in 2016 and why he will win re-election again. Donald Trump is a populist president, winning on his merits.

Yes, Trump is a populous president.  He says what is popular.  He does what is popular.  If it won't make a crowd of supporters cheer, he won't say it.

Also, did you not see the republican debates in 2016?  They ripped Trump apart and he still won.  Soak that in.

I think it is interesting that you admit that the majority of America wants lower taxes, border control, smaller government, no handouts, and not to be Europe's military.

So bad of Trump to lie to people, feigning the role of a good leader who follows the desires of the people, when in truth it's an elaborate sham, that he is merely giving people exactly what they want and those are not his ideals at all!

I never said majority, just popular.  In this context, popular to his base.
Ex: hating latin american immigrants.  Very popular.
Lower taxes: he did not lower taxes in any meaningful way for most people.
Border control: everyone wants that.  We just have different ideas on how.
Smaller government: You aren't paying attention, are you?  Trump wants bigger and bigger government.  He wants as much power as possible.  His base does not care.  If he became king of America, they'd all cheer his name.
No handouts: Considering many of his supporters need handouts, not sure this is true.
Not being Europe's military: And yet they'll happily bomb muslims.  Don't think they really mind being the police.

More of the best and brightest of the Trump administration.

He hires nothing but the best people, you know.
His best people outsource to the cheapest labor.  Ie: free.

Why not? His supporters will believe anything.

Its ok.  Pence is on it.

Not a czar.  Because Trump said he wouldn't.  But Pence has it in the bag.

It would be a lot more fun to shoot rapists and murderers back over the border in a human cannon. Someone who uses twitter tweet that at Trump and see if he goes for it.

It is, though. Dems are attempting to freak everyone out about a virus that has a lower fatality rate than the common flu. They're also trying to actively crash markets by instilling panic into it. This isn't the dark ages, illnesses just don't spread very well in modern nations due to our level of hygiene. What will happen is this will spread like a common flu, kill a few old people who were knocking on death's door anyway and that's it.
