Gotta give Trump credit for being correct in this statement....
""I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters," Trump said at a campaign rally here."

Like I said.......Fear the Gullibles.



Now that I think about this, isn't Trump, by virtue of that statement, effectively calling his supporters gullible? He's openly and outwardly laughing at them..............amazing.

Just read this.....
"If it is revealed that he did try to stop the FBI investigation, most Americans see that as a disqualification from office (58 percent) but unsurprisingly, those views are strongly tied to current support. In all, 79 percent of his backers, and 86 percent of his strongest supporters, say that wouldn't be serious enough to disqualify him."

79% of his backers think it's OK for him to stop the FBI investigation. Not serious? Really? Holy Crap!
Don't fear the liars..........but really, really fear the Gullibles. I want an IQ test administered to each and every one of them!


And 100%* of the actual gullibles (lefties) view Hillary's "email situation" as perfectly acceptable, even for someone running for president.

"Hey, there's this person who doesn't know what classified means or has a clue about keeping information secure, and she's over-qualified for president!"



I've yet to see a lefty liberal who doesn't think there's a problem with the whole email thing.


Both sides are hypocritical, which is why I bring it up.




It's also funny people (ams288 and probably 777) saying stuff about it should be country before party......yet they thrive and wish for a Trump failure.


I remember when Obama was elected (both times), people on the right thought he was going to be a failure (and in many aspects, was)....but I don't remember hatred toward him and wanting him to fail. Although I'm sure there were people wanting him to fail, it wasn't anywhere near how bad it is now.


Seems like liberals' new hot word is gullible. So now instead of just calling us racist, they call us gullible, in an attempt to end a discussion.....and coincidentally, seen as childish.

Some people just don't get it, I guess. Although some may be concerned, I don't give a shit about either Hillary or Obama. I know enough about Hillary to want to say that she and Trump should be locked up in the same cell and the key thrown away. Obama will go down as pretty much being mediocre, except unless his health bill survives.

Been doing a little reading on gullibility and related lack of self-esteem. Interesting and I do believe is part of the Gullibles' profile.
Sheep is all they are.

You may think that some are wishing for a Trump failure, but the fact is that they view the probability of a Trump failure as high and would wish to avoid it.

Mitch McConnell the Senate minority leader at the time said in 2010, the number one priority was making Obama a one term President.

How's that for a opposition party leader setting the tone?

Saying we "thrive on" Trump failure seems like an admission that he is failing, HARD. Cause I sure am thriving!

There's no need for me to wish for him to fail, he'll accomplish that on his own. He is an awful human being. I want him to suffer and be unhappy. And 120ish days in, seems like my wishes are coming true.
The geniuses who thought HRC was running a child sex ring out of the basement of a pizza shop just can't connect the dots on all this trump-Russia stuff....

Said the guy who literally just signed the biggest arms deal in history with Saudi Arabia.

Pointing out this insane level of hypocrisy isn't even a story anymore. How half you people ever believed a word that came out of this man's mouth is astounding. Ya'll got absolutely conned and made the other half pay for your stupidity.


You're right. President Trump is the first president (or politician, for that matter) to ever do or say anything hypocritical and Hillary Clinton is just a sweet innocent angel.



Saudis just gave 100 million to the Ivanka Trump Foundation.

I can give you that and tell you that you will eventually find out is wasn't a good idea.


Yes. of course. Reducing illegal border crossings and deporting criminal illegals is never a good idea.

This coming out of the Softbank Vision fund that announced $100 billion in investments........a month prior to the US elections and at a time when Trump was expected to lose. Nothing special here.



The $100 billion is a global fund. How much of it would have been invested here anyway is unknown. Here is the SoftBank CEO discussing why he is investing $50 billion in the US.

"Because he is a lot of deregulation. This is great. The US will be great again."

From Pratt Industries website..."“We currently operate 68 factories and employ 7000 people and we want to continue to grow those numbers,” said Anthony. “Just here in the Midwest alone we’ve invested almost $500 million dollars since the beginning of 2015.”
Again, nothing new here. Pratt has been making this type of investment here in the US for the past 20 years.

This is a win, however it is more than offset by a $5 billion sales loss of beef from pulling out of the TPP. Net loss here.



The new administration favors bilateral rather than multi-national contracts. Expect more bilateral agreements in the region.

I would need evidence on this. MS-13 is a very small part of the gang problem in the US and other than the recent raids, there is really no proof that they are anywhere near "decimated".



MS-13 is only one of many gangs that have been allowed to flourish by the past four administrations.

Trump began his crackdown following the brutal murders on Long Island.

Not decimated yet, but within the first six weeks of Trump's announcement, ICE arrested 1,400 gang members across the nation. Thousands more are still out there.

LOL....and the missiles keep flying.



Secretary Tillerson stated yesterday "This is in it's early stages".

This is still developing.

Should we first try squeezing him together with the Chinese, or should we start a war that will kill 25 million people?

A second carrier is on it's way to the Korean peninsula.

So, let the crazy fat kid keep firing his missiles.

JohnnyQ's fact-checking service: MOSTLY FALSE, at BEST VERY MIS-LEADING.

source:

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/05/21/529417148/saudis-and-the-uae-will-donate-100-million-to-a-fund-inspired-by-ivanka-trump

excerpt:

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will donate a combined $100 million to a World Bank fund for women entrepreneurs that was the brainchild of Ivanka Trump.

The World Bank fund, which provides technical help and investment funding for women business owners, differs from the Clinton Foundation in some significant ways. While Ivanka Trump proposed the idea along with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, she is not involved with its operation

AGREED.

Now having said that, I am impressed that he hasn't embarrassed himself or the country he represents in the first 36 hours on his first international trip. The over/under on that had to be pretty low.
