I find it very difficult to believe

Feb 9, 2018 12:23PM PST

that ANY woman can respect Donald J. Trump as a human being.....neiver mind as POTUS.

HE wishes everyone(the perps) well and hopes they can move on....NEVER a mention of the people/women that are/were affected by the actions of "men/the perps".

THEY suffered enough by him accepting their resignation?

NO display of sympathy from him OR admission of not vetting "the best people" HE threatened/promised to hire?

there was also the Gold Star incident.....

He doesn't know when to shut up AND he doesn't know what to say when he does talk....

Sounds more like complaints/statements you
Feb 9, 2018 2:22PM PST

should be making about prominent DEMS and Hollywood elites who have long protected their own...even to the point of smearing the women and keeping the 'perps' close by. Pelosi just recently referred to one long time DEM colleague as an "icon".........

DEMS have a long standing reputation for hypocrisy and protectionism.........not to say some Reps haven't been guilty of crimes, but they generally leave quickly of their own accord....not so with Dems.

THEY generally leave quickly of their own accord AND then POTUS goes on the stage and talks about how great they were....NO mention of the victim OR the circumstances of WHY they "left quickly".....great worker...wish them well...nothing to see here...keep moving....

"of their own accord"?

Are you saying Donnie didn't put ANY pressure on them?

Tsk, tsk, tsk...Of course IF he might draw attention to the brags HE made while on the bus with Billy Bush....

even to the point of smearing the women and keeping the 'perps' close by.

Would you consider it "smearing" someone by not recognizing (not mentioning them when describing the reason for resigning) their existence?

"Close by" in the Oval Office?

At least Trump didn't call him an 'icon'

and try to pooh pooh the accusations like Pelosi just did...........

Come on, JP.....admit it........Dems ALWAYS protect their own until it's no longer convenient for them to do so, and even then, it's done silently without even mentioning that they are still friends with them like Gillian Hilldebrand just did regarding the Clintons.

try to pooh pooh the accusations like Pelosi just did

Just did?...for ONE DAY?

Let me "update" you

Pelosi sides with Conyers accuser day after calling him an 'icon'

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Monday said she talked to and believes the woman who has publicly come forward with allegations against Rep. John Conyers Jr., one day after referring to the Michigan Democrat as an "icon" who deserves "due process."

“This afternoon, I spoke with Melanie Sloan who worked for Congressman Conyers on the Judiciary Committee in the mid-1990s," Pelosi said in a statement.

"Ms. Sloan told me that she had publicly discussed distressing experiences while on his staff. I find the behavior Ms. Sloan described unacceptable and disappointing. I believe what Ms. Sloan has told me," she continued.

Pelosi also called for the "secretive settlement process in place" to end, saying the "victims who want to come forward to the Ethics Committee must be able to do so.”

Seems SHE didn't "pooh pooh" the accusations for very long....... ONE DAY?...

How many days has TheRUMP been "pooh poohing accusations" about him and Billy Bush on the bus? Oh wait...he was never on the bus....

Pelosi had to reverse herself because of immediate pressure

No comment on TheRUMP
Feb 10, 2018 11:27AM PST

being an Iconic "dirtbag" for HIS comments on the bus?

Not even a "Hey, just a couple good ole boys having a locker room discussion"?

YOU don't want to talk about it either? NO "reversal" expected from YOU., just silence.

Makes it difficult for HIM to point fingers, so HE doesn't want to take too firm a position on the subject...

RE:Pelosi had to reverse herself because of immediate pressure.

immediate pressure?...immediate pressure OR taking with the victim?

So is TheRUMP an "icon", That's ME saying that...

Donald J Trump IS an icon. Not a good icon...but still an icon...

It was my pleasure to enlighten you on what Pelosi said and when she said it.

Trump got rid of both of his problem men....
Feb 10, 2018 11:55AM PST

and didn't defend them...just wished them well. Pelosi defended HER icon and didn't want him to resign or be forced out publicly, until pressure from the far left forced her hand and her statement was pretty vague about sticking up for the women accusing him. The LIAR actually kept HER guy on staff and DIDN'T AGAIN stick up for the accusers, which is always typical of her, even regarding big donors like Weinstein. Trump doesn't keep hanging around with the people he let go, unlike the DEMS who retain all those friendships. Money is everything to them, even above their rhetoric about standing up for women.....they don't and have a public record for slamming them instead.

Feb 10, 2018 12:19PM PST

HE got rid of them?

THEY resigned and HE accepted?

I thought HIS claim to fame was YOU'RE FIRED!!!! Of course when you say YOU'RE FIRED!!!! it's difficult to, in the next breath, proclaim what a great person they are and hope they have a great career. Makes a person look like a hypocrite....

RE: both?...ONLY 2? Which 2? 2 so far?

Is easy to figure out.
I'm the boss and I can't be wrong and I can do what I want.
I don't have to know what I'm talking about I'll just make up stuff.

Congress types.
They are all just a bunch of self serving people.
It does not make a difference which side of the aisle.
Every action is run through a political filter first.
They sit in congress for 5/10/20 yrs and rise to a position of power and then get a swelled head.

2 terms and your out.

He hasn't done what he wanted
Feb 10, 2018 10:24AM PST

to do, Bob....he's backed off considerably from what he wants to do....that's called compromise and he hasn't had to corrupt his own administration to get what he wants like BO did. Can you name ONE thing that BO ever compromised on in 8 years? DEMS are bit.hing about immigration reform and amnesty for 'dreamers' when they easily could have accomplished it all in the first four years of the BO dictatorship and didn't bother.......why?

Feb 10, 2018 11:59AM PST

What HAS gotten done already still has time to have amendments added to it in order to get it all, the meantime, he compromises and gets what he can immediately. Note to comment about BO's dictatorship inability to compromise on anything in 8 years and didn't get anything other than Obamacare passed in Congress because anything else he had to do with an EO that he knew could be reversed? Name ONE thing he compromised on......

"Find me ONE bill" that BO got passed that he COMPROMISED on with Republicans" during his 8 years don't you comprehend, JP? Out of your 21M results, there should be at least ONE that you can post here and find credibility. Obamacare is the ONLY thing he got passed, without even ONE Rep vote, because everything else was stopped by Reid and never got voted on after the Reps took over the House, so he used EO's for everything else he wanted done. You want me to work with you....I'll make it real easy for you then.....make sure it's IMPORTANT legislature....that should narrow down your search.

"Find me ONE bill" that BO got passed that he COMPROMISED on with Republicans"

let's start here...

The Recovery Act – the economic stimulus law that blunted the recession – only passed after Obama accepted the demand from three Senate Republicans to reduce the size of the package by about $100 billion, mostly by paring back spending proposals. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform bill also squeaked through the Senate with three Republican votes. Obama sealed the deal after making a key concession to newly elected Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown, scrapping an outright ban on commercial banks investing in high-risk funds in favor of allowing limited investments.


(1)You going to admit I provided "proof of concession" by Obama?

(2)OR will you divert and deflect?

I think you will go with choice number 2....OR you might go silent....The Recovery Act to never mentioned again by you...

YOU asked for "ONE bill"

Asking for "ONE bill" isn't "cherry picking"?

IF you still want a link, let me know...I'll provide the "link".

As a condition of me providing the link...YOU cannot use the "the source is not reliable defense"....Be advised the link contains more than ONE example of Republicans getting concessions from Obama...

You already have "egg on your face" from me providing ONE bill (as you requested) do you really want more eggs?
