“U r an idiot.”
Of 20 or so emails I received from Donald Trump supporters in the past week, this one from Michael J. Coldiron was the most concise.
The story provoking the responses looked at a new Southern California poll — in which nearly half of the 800 respondents said the president was “making America worse” — and placed that in the context of historical nationwide Gallup polling on other presidents’ first 100 days in office.
I had written that Trump took office with the lowest approval rating (45 percent) since Gallup began polling the 100-day question. with Dwight Eisenhower. The front-page article said Trump was on track not only to post the lowest rating at the 100-day mark of any president, but that he also was likely to see the biggest drop in approval ratings since being sworn into office.
“At some point you might stop being so biased and act like a journalist,” suggested Luan Fogg. “Not all of us fell into a depression or spend our days crying over the election.”
WHAT DOES WHITE, MALE, RICH, PRIVILEGE LOOK LIKE IN THE USA?
Imagine this scenario: Hillary Clinton is president. It's learned that she has deep ties to Putin and the Russian spy agency. She puts utterly unqualified billionaires in cabinet posts. She pursues public policies that benefit her and her billionaire friends.
She puts her daughter Chelsea in a position of influence in the West Wing, gives her her own office and allows her to use that position to forward her own business interests. And Chelsea's husband is her chief advisor. The private business trips taken by Chelsea and her husband are paid for by the taxpayers.
She refuses to release any tax returns, she blocks access to the visitor logs in the White House and Bill refuses to live in the White House so our tax dollars are spent keeping him safe in Chappaqua.
Hillary spends almost every weekend lounging in her own, privately-held resort. Her private resort gets reimbursed for any and all "official" government functions (including security) because she chooses to conduct all her "business" and personal functions there. She and her family live in three White Houses at the same time.
In an interview, she names the wrong country she bombed while bragging about the chocolate cake she was eating while she ordered said bombing. I could go on and on. The point is that the outrage, the outcries, the screaming by Republicans would be heard around the world and impeachment proceedings would already be underway.
By the way, this is not about political party affiliation. Let's face it, if Hillary - or any woman or minority candidate - had five children from three partners s/he would never have survived the primary.
