7. RIGHT!!!!!

It seems so many people (not just here) say, "well, people voted for him" (all the variants thereof)

Yes, some idiots did-- but the election was won by HRC

3. Trump is a net negative for the country.

He literally contributes nothing of value to any conversation.

5. I wish a giant net was put over him

as he is hauled off to either Sing Sing or the mental ward at Bellevue for life. The world would be a much better place if this were to happen ASAP!

4. Anderson Cooper too

He has an emotional connection to Haiti, I think, having covered the earthquake. He was shaking with anger.

Trump is such a a-hole. He's a man of no culture, no interests, no music, no spice-- and he's incapable of loving anything from another culture, or even noticing all the wonderful contributions made by people from other places, and especially Americans who started life somewhere else.

I know this is reductive, but I love to watch food shows (and try without much success to replicate their recipes). Usually about half of the contestants on Top Chef and Chopped -- trained chefs all-- are not native-born, and many of the others are children of immigrants. I realize this is lost on someone who loves Big Macs above all, but the food in our nation is constantly being transformed by immigrants who bring their own food traditions, not to mention native-born chefs who admire other cultures and go there to learn the cuisine and bring it back.

Last week, for lunches, I -- in the downtown of a medium-sized Midwestern city-- got to eat these foods: Cuban. Indian. Japanese. Ethiopian. And of course Mexican, which is so entirely beloved by Americans, we forget that food got invented somewhere else.

That's just one aspect of culture. We can think about music next.
Trump won't. He doesn't care about culture. But the rest of us do.

13. You are right about uncultured...

In his year in office has there been one Presidential dinner or command performance? He is probably the only billionaire without an art collection, proven patron of any arts.... he doesn't own a pet... likely a cat would claw him, and a dog would bite...he is a big freaking zero!

6. Wish there was more of this on tv News

arguing with peopleís false equivalencies and alternative facts doesnít get you far these days. Fox News and the others often rely on emotions like fear and anger to make their arguments. If we canít have a reasonable debate in this country, then better to evoke peopleís humanity, sense of justice and compassion through discussions like this.
