Treason! Interference of Justice! Is this Trump? Nope--just the insane anti
Trump establishment, foaming at the mouth in Hysteria! Trump just keeps pn
putting his 10 hour workdays, trying to keep his campaign promises. He
certainly outworks all of his left leaning democratic opponents in the
"resist everything by any means possible"group.
The Meliorist - Grande Cache"I think it's unfair to blame
Republicans for voting for Trump. I get that they were simply voting
strategically to keep Hillary and the Democrats out"--- Are you
kidding?A. If you were saying that accepting somebody like Trump just
because you wanted your side to win I'm sorry I do not admire the morals in
that.B. If you were saying that it has not dawned on you that all that
stuff about Hillary must have been untrue or she would have been in jail years
ago, I again wonder if you're willing to accept any and all lies to
justify your position as a Republican
Some folks can't think for themselves. They depend on FOX to do it for
@The Meliorist - Grande Cache, 00, Just a friendly reminder, the
majority of American's did not vote for Trump.Final Popular
Vote numbers: Clinton - 65,844,610Trump - 62,979,636And
who else do we blame for this?
Bill (Clinton) fired the head of the FBI his first year in office. Carter and
Obama banned people from a Muslim country (Iran, Iraq). Yet the
liberals complain about Trump? Will the liberals ever get over this,
or will we see a new party emerging from the desolate destruction of our
mainstream media and the survivors of the DNC. Will the DNC ever learn that
cheaters never win? Poor Bernie, he should have had his day but it was taken
Some folks can't think for themselves. They depend on the media to do it
@RalphThank you sir. Don't believe I have ever received a nicer
"Finally, President Trump gets more real work done on the golf course than
Barack Obama did in the Oval Office..."Herbert, you are a
shining example of a Trump supporter.
There will be a "firestorm" over everything this great President does.
Even the poor loser Hillary Clinton announced that she has joined the
"resistance".I feel so sorry for her and other poor liberals
who can't accept the fact that Donald Trump beat them at their own game.So, keep resisting folks and see what happens to this once-great
country.Finally, President Trump gets more real work done on the
golf course than Barack Obama did in the Oval Office it on any of his apology
When was the last time the Soviet Union/Russia ever wanted a Republican to
The left's take on a change in leadership at the FBI is the mother of all
overreactions (MOAO)! Consider what this ongoing, uninterrupted FBI
investigation into alleged collusion means to the Democratic party! There is no
evidence (so far) and if the FBI can find none, the Democratic party loses even
more relevancy, and they haven't got much left to lose. Therefore, this is
what the Democrats have placed all their hopes upon: "The Russians did
it"! When this fails, and it will, who to blame next? Martians, perhaps?
Take home message: Democrats NEVER lose elections, they are always
"stolen" from them.
Twitter was designed to pass the buck. Accountability is fake news. Ratings mean
more than truth.
@Thid Barker - Moscow, RS""Firestorm" is not what this
issue is,..."I agree, the issue is that our POTUS feels it
necessary to lie about his reasons even when he really did not need to.He could have fired Comey on day one, but he didn't. Only after Comey
testified and mentioned the robust investigation into the Trump administration
and their possible collusion with the Russian government.
Sean Spicer found it "offensive" when a reporter asked if Trump was
"out of control," and there's no doubt the question was, indeed,
offensive. But the problem for Mr. Spicer, and also Mr. Trump, is that millions
upon millions of American citizens are now asking the same question. And,
offensive or not, the citizens of the United States deserve a rational answer.
Happens everyday! Someone doesn't do a good job, and they get
fired.Comey didn't do a good job.
I bet we have a new president by Labor Day-
The Democrats have painted themselves into a corner with this issue! Imagine if
the FBI can not find any evidence of President Trump colluding with the Russians
on the election! No word on how this alleged "collusion with the
Russians" could actually keep millions of Americans from voting for Hillary!
Radical Democrats are making fools of themselves "resisting" by
rioting, destroying property and attacking police! Do liberals really think
their behavior is going to get moderate Americans to elect Democrats? Really?
Twice in our history the Democratic party has refused to accept election results
and then they succeeded en masse. The first time when Republican Abraham Lincoln
won the election and its happening again over Republican Donald Trump winning
Thid - you sound just like the other side. Just swap a few democrats for
republicans here and there, and you could just as easily sound like a rabid
liberal. What happened to the claims of "golfer and chief"? Or the
fact that Trump takes Air Force One and its associated support aircraft and
personnel on weekly weekends away - mostly to Florida.Before one
starts playing the hypocrisy card, it best one makes a retrospective look at
one's own comments. I am not saying that some of your
complaints aren't valid. The problem is that we have very similar acts
being interpreted very differently depending on party. Trumps owns his own
issues - as did the former administration. Trump's approval ratings are
in an increasing decline... now worse than Obama's in the depth of the
recession. That should tell you something.... after 4 short months. He can
fix it..... but he is not on a path to do that yet - his pride is preventing
that. The never-apologize-over-anything President is learning the differences
between CEO and POTUS.... big difference.
1aggie - SALT LAKE CITY, UTMay 15, 2017 7:09 a.m.@BYUalumAs of May 8 in the first year of each man's presidency, Trump has
played golf 15 times, Obama, 1.========= Yes -- The IRONY and Hypocrisy of the Republicans makes me want to vomit.I listened for 8 years as they DAILY whined and cried about Obama's
Executive Orders and playing Golf.Trump makes Obama look like a
glorified Saint - and TRUELY Presidential.Trump has signed MORE
E.O.s [that, WITH a House and Senate in GOP control], and Trump's
played golf 21 times in a little over 100 days so far.I can
completely without any guilt, remorse or hesitation whatsoever can completely
ignore 100% EVERTHING any Republican has to say ever again...
@BYUalum - South Jordan, UT"I am an ardent supporter of Donald
Trump. He is the hardest working President I can remember in the WH for many
years. His 10-hour work days ring circles over the former guy who mostly
traveled around playing golf, taking expensive vacations, and apologizing for
America."No POTUS in recent history has played more golf in his
first 100 days than Trump. That is probably why he could not articulate much of
what was in the Healthcare bill that the GOP passed in the house. Maybe he
should take more naps.He doesn't apologize for America (did you
mean the USA?), but he has gone back on almost all of his campaign promises.
Mexico isn't paying for that beautiful wall. He is not calling China a
currency manipulate (no he is being played by N. Korea and China right now). He
is not going to get rid of NAFTA anymore either. But you go ahead and keep
Poor Donald, but nobody ever said that being an autocrat would be easy. Thank
goodness for our Founding Fathers. Trump is exactly the type of person they had
in mind when they designed The Constitution.
This is what results when a TV celebrity host is elected with no experience in
the political world.In the case of Ronald Reagan, patron saint of
Conservative Causes, he was involved in SAG as president for years, then 2 terms
as Governor of liberal California, during the tumultuous 1960s, and eventually
becoming president.Trump is no Reagan, and he definitely is no Mr.
Smith gone to Washington, or even Jimmy Stewart in real life.Chaos
will continue, not because of the so called liberal press, but due to his
incompetence as a leader, due to his reliance on bluster and various veiled
threats.Trump should be worried about tapes, if tapes exist.
Utah Girl Chronicles said:I don't see Trump sticking it out for four
years. The country will never unite behind him. All Trump can do is retreat
inwardly and seek "counsel" from his Trump Organization loyalists and
the friendly boot-lickers at Fox News."The same thing with a few
name changes could have been said about the last President.If you
honestly believe "the country was united behind" Obama you don't
get out much.
It is remarkable that Trump still doesn't get the fact that he can't
control everyone. Hence the tantrums.As for his supporters, with
every action, they seem to become more and more entrenched behind him. That too
is remarkable, and inexplicable.
@BYUalumAs of May 8 in the first year of each man's presidency,
Trump has played golf 15 times, Obama, 1.(Don't let the facts
interfere with the fantasy)Trump is simply unfit for the office of
POTUS.Yet few to no Republicans are willing to defend our Constitution
against his madness. Sad.
This is primarily another liberal temper tantrum (Democrats, the media, and the
other left-wing political fringe folks). As long as they are making governing
the country very difficult they have some power. Highly detrimental to the
well-being of our country.
"Firestorm" is not what this issue is, more like a tempest in the
Democratic party and its lap dog fake news media tea-pot! Just imagine the
difficult and embarrassing situation this has presented the left! We have Nancy
Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, among other demos, on national TV demanding the firing
of Comey because the FBI was investigating Hillary's classified emails
scandals. Fast forward past the election and President Trump firing Comey and
these same liberals are now having a 10 alarm hissy fit because President Trump
did what they demanded! Hypocrisy anyone? If President Trump invented a cure for
cancer, the left would condemn him for that! The Democratic party continues to
make itself even more irrelevant!
Trump might survive.He was right about him saying he could shoot someone
in the middle of 5th ave and not lose a single vote.BUT -- Congress will not.I see a tsunami sweeping the House and the
Senate next year, from the spineless do NOTHING Republicans.Articles of Mr. Trump's impeachment will be the 1st order of business in
the new DEMOCRATIC held Congress.
"Firestorm over Comey's dismissal adds to Trump frustrations"If the AP says it's true, it must be so. LOL.
Trump doesn't work, BY alum. He spends his days trying to put out fires he
started the day before. He's played more golf already than Obama did in a
year. He wasn't even with his wife on Mother's day. .he was playing
golf in Jersey. What a disaster. Impeachment is nigh...
The Comey firing is irrelevant to Trump supporters. A lot of smoke and no
substance. What we are interested in is tax cuts, Obamacare gone and replaced by
a free market health care system, reduction in rules and red tape so business
can compete, and border security. The vast majority of Trump voters support him
and his support will increase. As for the media they have lost all
Worf.... when Richard Burr, a die hard party line pro Trump supporter
doesn't like the optics of this... and publicly says so..... this is more
than left wing main stream media partnering with the Democrats. When Lee
recommends Obamas choice for the Supreme Court as the best replacement as one of
the few ways to replace confidence in the office.... there is more to this than
main stream media against Trump.Trump has a huge credibility issue
right now. Partly fueled by the media. Be Trump is The Who keeps providing
the fuel for the fire... He may be trying to do some good things but has
abdicated truth in the processs.... and fewer people are willing to give him the
benefit of doubt.
Well, Trump has not locked up Hillary because nobody seems to have actually
proven anything she did was illegal even though she's been out of office
since 2013. We also know that Obama was born in Hawaii USA.No one
who is operating on logic is going to believe someone who stuck to lying about
the above 2 for years only issue of Mr. Comey.However logic in politics in
this country seems to have gone out the window and continued on down the street
on a fast motorcycle and Over the Horizon
He was sent to drain the swamp. There will be a few alligators displaced.
Regardless of what you think of Comey, the way Trump fired him was embarrassing
and shameful. As we recently learned in Salt Lake, the only way to fire someone
is face-to-face and with proper reasons. Comey was fired because
they refuse to be a yes man. This is very dangerous. Trump needs people
around him that will tell him the truth, not tell him what he wants to hear.
With no proof that anything happened, it's all conjecture about Russia.
It's time for the country and the media to move on.
This is a great article about what's happened over the past week. Like others, I voted against both candidates/parties this last election.
Democrats blame Republicans. Republicans blame Democrats and the media. But I
believe we, the people, are all to blame for the phenomenon in the Oval Office.
We're way late in teaching our young basic civics, and too tolerant of
ignorance and incivility. I'm hoping the current president
will not last beyond a term, and we can be done with him. I'm hoping he
doesn't make a mess of things before these years are over. Just another 18
months or so and the next race begins.
What's frightening is that we may never know the whole truth . If
trump.pulls this off without consequence we are the next Argentina.
I will grant you the media can sometimes dog a topic to the point of being
obnoxious. But to claim that this is all false news..... all the while
claiming all the stuff about Hillary was the truth, is obnoxious in its own
right. But lets be really really clear. None of this is less real than the
email server, nor Benghazi. Trump foolishly did have his campaign being led by
a man who helped run the campaign of the pro-Russia party in Ukraine, helped get
a leader elected who was later deposed from office after turning the military on
protesters, and who has taken asylum in Russia. There is nothing faux or false
about that. It is also equally true that the FBI is investigating
possible election meddling by the Russians trying influence our election. This
should be no surprise to anyone since our own government has tried to do
likewise in many countries as well. So to try to portray any of this as
faux.... is not being honest with ones self.That doesn't mean
Trump had any direct connection or directed any of these activities. Hardly.
But his ego is so shallow he can't bear the idea that he might have gotten
Simple logic prevails. The GOP has failed and it isn't even in the third
inning of the ball game. No relief in sight, and there isn't a reliever
with any creditability to save the game. Trump and the GOP is a long forgotten
"I think it's unfair to blame Republicans for voting for Trump. I get
that they were simply voting strategically to keep Hillary and the Democrats
out. "Nonsense. We all had the same access to the knowledge of what
kind of person trump is. We all saw the tape from the bus. We all saw his very
public antics from decades previous. No matter how much you try to
convince us that Hillary would be so much worse or that you're blameless in
the end you went ahead and voted for this behaviour. You accepted it; past
behaviour predicts future. The citizens do care. The law cares, too.
We'll see how this plays out.
I think there isn't any political parties, there's only us and them.
Now he knows who he's up against. Trust, is more valuable than gold.
As a Republican, don't blame me, I voted for McMulin.
I think it's unfair to blame Republicans for voting for Trump. I get that
they were simply voting strategically to keep Hillary and the Democrats out. BUTNow Hillary is not the President it is the job of the
Republicans to demand grown up behaviour from their President.1.
Demand he release his taxes.2. Demand a special prosecutor to find the
truth (good or bad)3. Demand he communicate what the government is doing.
Press Secretaries are there for a reason.4. Demand he stop the little boy
attacks and start leading by example.While the majority of Americans
voted for Clinton, it is apparent that Republicans (mostly) voted for Trump. How
they guide him through his Presidency will greatly determine the outcome of the
next election.The ball is in your court Republicans. And America is
watching. Cause that's how a democracy works.
The liberal press is the biggest problem in Washington --- they don't like
being ignored as being relevant so they spread untruths , half truths and
masquerading as the whole truth. They try to argue over everything that happens
that don't fit their narrative as some big crisis and if their is no crisis
they will create one.
I am an ardent supporter of Donald Trump. He is the hardest working President I
can remember in the WH for many years. His 10-hour work days ring circles over
the former guy who mostly traveled around playing golf, taking expensive
vacations, and apologizing for America.I'm sick of all the
whining and complaining from the media and Dems who attack him hourly. They
called for Comey to be gone up to a few days ago (remember Hillary saying he
cost her the election?) Hypocrisy at its greatest.God bless America
and God bless President Trump!
I don't see Trump sticking it out for four years. The country will never
unite behind him. All Trump can do is retreat inwardly and seek
"counsel" from his Trump Organization loyalists and the friendly
boot-lickers at Fox News.This is a failed experiment, Republicans.
Perhaps TASS could take over White House communications. Apparently Trump trusts
Russian reporters and cameramen over American ones. The mess is not in the
messaging, it is in the message. And the message goes from top down. Trump is
truly incompetent. Just read his interview in the Economist. It is absolutely
Just when you begin to think events surrounding the White Asylum can't
become any more insane, they do. How long will it take before people
who voted for him realize the awful mistake they made?
This is simple more liberal media anger. A recent WSJ/NBC poll found that 38
percent of US adults disapprove. The rest either approve or have no opinion.
The title of this article is deceptive:* Trump doesn't look
frustrated when explaining the firing of Comey. A little confused from the
reactions of those who didn't like him.* The firestorm is
mostly with the media, and liberal politicians. Most of the American citizens
Trump will bounce back, but many Republicans will soon have to choose between
loyalty to Trump and his supporters, or to the nation, with very large
majorities now supporting a special prosecutor.The Founding Fathers
anticipated the emergence of someone like Trump, but our system depends on
others doing their job.
Article: "Trump's visible anger and erratic tweets prompted a reporter
to ask Spicer on Friday if the president was 'out of control.'...
"That's, frankly, offensive," Spicer said.When a
yes-or-no question is not answered with a no, the answer is yes.If
we replace the particulars related to the Comey firings with fill-in-the-blank
spaces, this article could have been written the day after Trump announced his
candidacy for the GOP 2016 presidential primary. Trump is as unfit
today as he was then, and his rapid descent into irresponsible and paranoid
incompetence was as inevitable a probability then as it is the undeniable
reality today.Republicans control the White House, the U.S. Senate
and the House of Representatives.This is your mess, GOP. Clean it up. Now.
