I DON'T love Trump, I DON'T hate Trump. I can understand why people don't like him. I don't like when Trump acts very immaturely, and rudely. Thats not how a president should act. However, the mainstream media attacks him WAY TOO MUCH. Its always Trump, Trump, Trump. And yes, there are things I do agree with Trump about. Illegal immigrants needed to be deported and come back when they go through the process LEGALLY. A TEMPORARY (have to put this in caps, b/c people seem to never understand) muslim ban until the vetting process is improved.

Was Trump the best choice? No. But since he's president, I will support him, and will criticize stuff I don't agree with him on. Conservatives seem to act more maturely when he won. Whereas the left (and yes not all) acted like children, and couldn't accept the outcome.

However, I don't think Trump is hurting this country. All of what the left claims is just fear-mongering crap. Thats just me though. Your thoughts?

Well, part of it is "people who just assume that all of what the left claims is just fear-mongering crap".
That kind of intellectual laziness is pretty ****ing ghastly.

Trump has failed the middle class, and NO ONE has ever lied even a fraction as much as Trump

There simply isn't even any point in you participating in any kind of political discussion. Why bother?
All of what the Left does is fearmongering crap...The End.

You're the one who just took a giant **** on everyone who doesn't agree with your politics, why should I do your work for you?

I can say this much, it's going to be a lot of fun ten years from now when you're twenty-seven, and we get to look back on the sheltered life you led at age seventeen, you know, back when you knew everything already, and nothing anyone in power did had any effect on your life...yet.

No, throwing out a blanket statement that everything the Left says is bullcrap is ****ting on them automatically.

I think you cut Trump more slack than you cut Obama.

If Trump isn't hurting the country, then no way was Obama.

And Trump isn't being treated worse by the left than Obama was by the right (including by Trump).

Really.

When did I say I knew everything? I didn't. I never claimed this was absolute fact. Jesus dude.

I never saw a single conservative go and throw a tantrum after Obama won.

But when people basically **** on the right, it's ok? I guess I don't get it. I've never understood the liberal logic.

  • In the days immediately after Hurricane Sandy, 69 Republicans walked away from extending the National Flood Insurance program as families and businesses were actively assessing storm damage and making claims, and GOP leadership relied on 193 Democrats to keep the program operating. [1/4/13]
    [/FONT]
  • House Republican leadership refused to bring the Sandy supplemental aid bill to the Floor after the Senate passed it with strong bipartisan support. When a bill was brought to the Floor, 179 Republicans walked away from businesses and families affected by Hurricane Sandy, and GOP leadership relied on 192 Democrats to pass the bill. [1/15/13]

Guess what's making its way through Congress right now? An aid package for the victims of Florence.
Notice how Democrats ARE NOT trying to choke off funding?

Ok. So both sides bitch about the other. Just because your older, doesn't mean your automatically right. I may be young, so I may be wrong, but you aren't automatically right b/c you are older.
