    Yes, what a pity that the American people have to be subjected to this monster as he systematically dismantles democracy and destroys the country.

    That’s the point Dennis! He’s the first non-fake President since Ronald Reagan! While other so called “Presidents” were Politicians and did noting but talk, our current President has arranged for the lowest unemployment for Blacks, Hispanics, and women in our Nation’s history, got Mexico to pay for the wall by negotiating a new trade deal that will transfer enough money from Mexico over the next 16 years to pay for the wall 20 times over, is actually building the wall, illegal immigration is going down, billions of dollars are coming back to America from off shore because he’s created such an amazing investment opportunity for us all, trillions of dollars have been added to our value in the stock market alone, our embassy is in Jerusalem finally after the past 4 Presidents said they would do it and then failed, he passed Prison Reform and VA reform that has made our minorities and veterans so much better off, and we could go on and on! And guess what? For the first time in our lifetimes our country is energy independent!! We’re getting so tired of winning! One thing is for sure. This President has proven the past four were indeed Fakes!

      I used to wonder how stupid some folks had to be to join cults or send money to TV televangelists, but I don’t wonder about it anymore. When I read comments like this, I know the answer. People want to believe what makes them feel good, secure and right, no matter if it is true or not. They don’t want to know the truth. They could care less. They don’t want to research or question their beliefs because it could take away from their sense of “certainty” that helps them get through life and sleep well at night. They simply spew back crap they hear from their favorite fake source, and go on with their lives. Take the “Mexico is paying for the wall” statement for example. Pure fantasy: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/01/08/president-trumps-desperate-nonsensical-claim-that-mexico-is-paying-wall/?noredirect=on
      But, the point is, nothing will make people like Gordon examine their beliefs, question their leader, or even try to ascertain the veracity of claims. They don’t care nor want to know.

      Donald Trump is smart. Just for the show, North Korea will listen on peace talks. After that, they’ll continue to build bombs. Proper protocol. It has always been this way in country relation.

    Hate the Trump economy. The low UN rate is an abomination. Minorities are now experiencing their lowest rate of unemployment in history. Black family wages took a dive under the former, I really care, president but are now soaring. Manufacturing jobs are coming back to the US and we are no longer an economic client state of China. We are no longer patsies for socialist Europe. Trump is trying to extricate us from the endless wars Bush and Obama fed billions into with zero results. Yeah, things are bad. Look for a Trump landslide in November 2020.

      The Trump economy is not solely responsible for the low minority unemployment rate. Rates have been falling steadily since 2010, early in Obama’s presidency. if you’re going to take credit, it’s only fair that you give credit, too.

    Gordon is hilarious, but he actually sounds like he’s serious. Is that possible? Well, like the old saying goes, there’s a sucker born every minute! When I was growing up, my parents taught me not to lie, and I’ve been PRETTY good about that, definitely not perfect, but the FACT that trump lies several times every day of his life, and he lies about really important stuff that could potentially affect the entire planet, makes me feel a bit better about myself. But it’s still mind-boggling that anyone with half a brain would believe even ONE WORD that comes out of that repulsive moron’s mouth.

      James, Stevey, and Andy – sounds like the three stooges? Let’s see, Trump says Mexico will pay for the wall during the campaign and there are many different ways they can do so. Trump negotiates a Trade Deal that, according to the US Trade Commission, will create 176,000 new US jobs and will add over $68 BILLION dollars to the US Economy! Now for a little math. It will cost around 5 Billion for the wall and our economy will be shifting $68 Billion dollars that was being enjoyed by Mexico to us! They lose $68 Billion dollars, we gain $68 Billion dollars. 68 divided by 5 equals 13.6. Hmm…that means Mexico will pay for 13.6 walls!!! WOW you didn’t realize that! Isn’t it interesting how listening to fake, brainwashed main stream news pundits can brainwash even those of mediocre intellect? You know like Kessler who wrote the spun and disingenuous article on the wall that James so proudly vomited as reality?

    Good point Tom! The Democrats and liberals among us are so out of touch with reality it’s beginning to look like mankind is digressing even further into the swamp. Their disjointed whining, and actually thinking the free stuff their dear leaders are offering is actually possible, is enough to make the wise among us fall to the floor laughing. You think you little trolls will be better off with the free life dopes you follow, just go ask an American Indian how their benevolent Government hand outs worked for them. What a bunch of idiots.

    No Gordon, we want you to go on and on; but, how about we suggest the topics:
    overt racism
    serial molester of women
    religious bigotry
    marital infidelity and immorality
    complete lack of empathy
    narcissism
    When addressing these character flaws, be sure to write out the lies using a sharpie!

    Ok Pete. Guess we can take them one at a time. 1) Overt racism. Against who? Trump has done more for Blacks, Hispanics, and Jews than any President in your lifetime. Lowest unemployment, prison reform that helps mostly minorities of color, pardoned more blacks already than Obama did in 8 years, and he helped the Jews by moving the embassy. Racism? Not even close! 2) Serial molester of women. Huh? He’s a good looking billionaire who owns everything every man would kill to have. A name that is one of the largest brands in the world, the most opulent and incredible airplanes and ships in the world, the finest golf courses in the world, and even the Miss Universe pageant in his prime! What straight man wouldn’t be attacked by every gold digging beauty in his circle? Given his temptations, I would say he’s been a saint! of course little men who are really failures wouldn’t understand, or are just plain jealous, but that doesn’t make it so. 3) Religious bigotry. Against whom?? Not the Christians who love him, not the Jews, who love him, not the Buddhists, Hindus, or Seiks who respect him? OH WAIT! You’re talking about the Sharia Government loving, America hating, Muslims! Since there is no separation between church and state in Muslim Countries which means “Muslim” is a State NOT A RELIGION! Yep, Trumps guilty. He doesn’t want what’s happening in Europe to happen here! He’s smart! 4) marital infidelity and immorality. Really? See number 2 above and add: what are you doing moving off shore to a Country where men go from all over the world to have sex with little girls and everything else with long hair that walks? Pot calling the kettle black? 5) lack of empathy? Please define further? He’s done more for the Country in 2.5 years than Obama did in 8. He has raised one of the most beautiful, smartest, classiest, and most incredible families of any Politician I know, including you! 6) narcissism. Yep, he’s guilty! He’s the most proud of himself person I’m following these days. But guess what! After the life he’s created for himself HE’S EARNED IT!

      You’re a disgrace, Gordon. Beyond your lies and distortions, your slimy insinuations are inexcusable.


    2. Pete Antonson September 15, 2019 9:28 am Reply

      If ever you need proof that trump worshipers think just like the big cheeto and that’s why they permit his disgusting behaviors, just copy and refer to this little ditty above!
      1) Overt racism: People of color loathe trump. They know what racism is better than anyone. They know what “Go back where you came from” means. They don’t forget about “Mexicans are rapists and murderers.” In this ditty, the writer has an attitude about the Philippines that it’s like trump’s pally wally Brian Epstein’s little Pleasure Palace. That attitude is racist! It won’t go unnoticed by 20% of Kauai who are proud of their roots within this fine country.
      2) Sexism and serial molestation: This writer blows this off with the good ole “They were asking for it!” It’s not that hard to believe that someone actually typed this argument out in 2019 when you know they admire a disgusting sexist pig!
      3) Religious Bigotry: Here you have an example of it. A blanket condemnation of “Muslims” dripping with ignorance! First, the religion is call “Islam” not Muslim and there are profound distinctions between Wahhabism described here (an Islamic doctrine originating in Saudi Arabia, trump’s best hotel guests) and the vast majority of Islamics believers who are Sunni and Shia Muslims, disagree with the interpretation of Wahhabism, and denounce it. Here we witness the writer’s raw bigotry.
      4) Marital infidelity and immorality: Since trump is famous for this it can’t be defended. The attempt to distract is therefore made with more of the “They were asking for it” and racism regarding the Philippines!
      5) Lack of empathy: Is not comforting victims of weather or shootings. Instead, talking about yourself, the crowd turnout, and how unfair you’re treating when the press says you have no empathy! It’s not sharing your umbrella with your own son or wife (or in the writer’s word, the “classiest” former nude model ever to reside in the WH).
      6) Narcissism: Just a another word for pride to the writer. Narcissist’s grandiosity soars to such heights that they are easily angered when they don’t receive the attention and admiration that they consider their birthright. To get it, they can justify doing anything! Give them power and you get brutal despots like Idi Amin or those headed in that direction until stopped!

    RE: Gordon > “The Democrats and liberals among us are so out of touch with reality”

    As of 8/5/19: “In 928 days, President Trump has made 12,019 false or misleading claims”
    Trump worshipers gobble up his every word, yet Liberals are out of touch with reality.
    Talk about “fall to the floor laughing”. Thanks for the morning laugh Gordon!

    And I find it ironic that you, and so many other Trump worshipers, are unable to make a point without name calling ie: “little trolls” “bunch of idiots”. Seems to be a common thread among you. It’s a shame you’re not mature enough to make a point without name calling, but then again Trump does that a lot too. I don’t think we’ve ever seen a more immature President, and I can’t imagine what history books will look like in a few decades! SMH.

    Silly boys, who have never researched or performed due diligence especially as it relates to corruption via u.s. militarojudiciaropolitico registered voters, who have systematically destroyed the place you boys call “home”. Ignorance and plain stupid is alive and well on this commentator page. Lies and liars have all been busted! We know who they are, do you?
