Will they be required to Curtsey/Bow at the next State of the Union Address

as Trump enters the Chambers to address them? Will he arrive in a gilded state coach with Ivanka dripping in diamonds like the Queen of England does?

Has the 2016 Postmortem forum outlived it's purpose

Now that it is settled and we are getting Cheeto Jesus as 45, should the forum be closed down? All I see in there is a rehash of the same conversations over and over again, assigning blame to various players etc. I think the intent of the forum was to enable discussion on what we could do differently as a party and what we learned from the 2016 race. I don't see many conversation around that, mostly just trying to assign blame (whether deserved or not--it does not change the outcome)

The age of the celebrity politician

Are we at the stage where we need a politician to be a celebrity to elect them?

In the US we elected Trump, a reality TV host. We elected an actor Governor of California and have previously elected celebrities to congress (and the WH)

In Canada, they have Trudeau (a liberal) who's fast becoming the selfie king. Before he became PM, he appeared shirtless in a boxing match and had no issues taking his shirt off on TV.

Other countries have elected celebrities to be their head of government or head of state.

What the fuck is going on here!????

What going on with the faithless electors

It seems we have a decent number of faithless electors on our side. What is going on, really? This to me highlight's our problems as a party. We can never have the "sheeple" following the republicans have.

I have a feeling Melania will not be Mrs Trump for long

Think about it... She likes to stay in NY in the Trump tower. Trump can divorce her and leave her there. She'll keep Barron and we're on the hook for SS for him till he turns 18, so she'l have massive protection AND get to live the life she wants. And, Trump can publicly start auditioning for the next Mrs Trump--who gets to be FLOTUS

Left leaning shift in the news media. When?

When do you anticipate that to happen? Republicans don't watch anything but Faux News and Trump's base does not watch news, so when us liberals stop watching news, their ratings will sink and they'll move to "reporting" that will attract a left-leaning audience again

The deplorables will never understand

This post is for anyone thinking that the deplorables will come to regret their support for Trump. IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. They want to protect the sanctity of marriage and the unborn fetus. They do not care if in the process they all die because they have no jobs, no health coverage etc. Years of religious brainwashing has turned them into sheeple who cannot think for themselves. They hate the Muslims for their ultra conservative behavior while accepting their own radical teachings because they belong to the "right" religion. The want to bring the crusades to the 21st century. Period.

What is deplorable in chief Conway up to today?

Has she given us more precious nuggets of her wisdom?

Secret Service at the Trump Tower

I read somewhere that they are using the Secret Service's presence at the Trump Tower as a selling point. I hope no one is stupid enough to fall for that. I have very close friends that used to live in the same sub-division as GWB here in Dallas and it was a nightmare visiting them.

Also, the second Trump gets sworn in, his family is guaranteed secret service protection for a long time. Trump and Melania get covered for 10 years after he leaves office (wonder what happens it they divorce after he leaves office?) and Barron gets coverage atleast until his 18th Birthday-so they'll get to make money of the secret service protection for years and years.

Yes, I know the Clinton's have/had the SS pay their mortgage pretty much, but it atleast they weren't profiting off it in a business sense

I hope the SC overturns Roe vs Wade, Gay Marriage and Civil Rights

This is what the country needs right now. No protections of anyone but white men. Unfortunately, that is the only wake up call that will spur people to go to the ballot box.
