1. WE have to understand something, it DOES NOT MATTER

His base will support him if he starts killing us, his DC staff and admin and other GOP politicians will as well.

We are so far PAST where we think we are, so sad most of us dont realize it.

8. What happened to the mass protest when Mueller was fired or report railroaded?

Mueller was obviously prevented from completing his work and his report has been rendered useless.

Why ARENT WE IN THE STREETS NOW!

I cant go alone

9. Yep, none are in the streets ... I was only referencing a point in time ... but none

are in the streets. Frankly, I doubt many Americans will bother ,,, but will plod along in their respective ruts of life.

14. We will get there...this can only last so long....63 million people will not let this stand...

Not sure if you remember the war protests from the sixties and seventies..I do...it swells up like a volcano - and people on the streets will rise..we are almost there....see comment #13....

The Viet Nam war took my generation of men and left us with Cheato bone spur and his ilk...


So many people working to save our democracy - DU will pick up on any event...rest assured....

His every word an action screams out his guilt.

15. Internal contradictions are irrelevant.

He has always lied on both sides of any issue. He is a firehose of falsity, a human Gish Gallop, a savant of GRU disinformation techniques.

His strategy is to bully the Congress, the Courts, the Press, and every Liberal paying attention into acquiescence. He has already silenced every department of the federal government through the installation of toadies and sycophants. See, in particular, the IRS.

He's not an idiot. This is his technique. He is a Authoritarian Con Artist. This is what they do. This is how democracies die.

29. I don't take much pleasure in it.

But thanks. The knee-jerk "he's an idiot" posts on DU make me crazy.

He's ignorant, but he is CUNNING. We never get to hear him on the phone with his buddies, or giving direction to subordinates, or strategizing moves like fucking Andrew McCabe out of his pension. The vindictive, cursing, NYC Mafioso-wannabee Trump. The real Trump.

We get to hear his TV persona. Bullshitter Trump.

16. If you saw how totally innocent he really is, you'd be embarrassed that you'd ever thought otherwise

He's just trying to spare his detractors' feelings. He's like that, so kind and considerate.

Definitely my previous post was not meant to be taken seriously.


These are the times that try mens' funnybones.

21. I've been unable to watch much news

Instead I am streaming murder mystery and science fiction series. Unfortunately many of those descend into darkness as they progress. But no matter how dark they get they are seldom as evil as the current presidential administration.

I wish I could find a good sitcom for better distraction...

23. It feels like such a total sewer immersion, always paying attention to

news coming out about tRump and the repugs.

I mute or fast forward thru the parts of the news where he or his flacks speak. Get the skinny here, or from good cable or podcast sources.

Recently I re-viewed the last 2 Tina Fey shows on netflix, Kimmy Schmidt and Great News. I don't have any current suggestions, except for AP Bio with Glen H and Patton Oswald. I'd like to see the latest Broad City season, but it doesn't come available for non-cable subscribers like me for a while.

Hang tough, cs.

24. I'm not into stand up so most of the shows you name are not fun for me

Probably because I don't keep track of popular culture much, never have.

I'll catch a little news, sometimes some Rachel Maddow, but I can't deal with much in depth stuff.

These days my husband and I are gearing up for leaving for Britain in July. When we get back, there will be a year for preparing for the election. Then I will have to pay attention, see who the Democratic nominee will be and I will start volunteering. But the next six months are for healing and vacation.

25. I shouldn't have tried, tough to recommend shows even when you know the person you're

recommending the shows to.

I hope your vacation is a great one, sounds like it will be.

20. He just used the first 4-syllable word he could remember that begins with an "e."

He has no idea what "Exonerates" means.

What he meant was that the Mueller report totally eviscerates him, but he couldn't think of the right word at the time.

Amazing to see how deeply tRump enjoys insulting the intelligence of homo sapiens everywhere.

27. Give him a break!

We know he's innocent (he told us, right?) but now he's trying to do the right thing for all of the others that have supported him and are facing charges, fines, sentences, etc. - which is just not right. After all, this group is only the "best of the best," - right?
