Both were elected on the same ticket and both are illegitimate based on the reasons already provided.
False.

If Trump dies, is impeached, or removed by Amendment XXV, Pence will be the lawful, Constitution successor.

Any who raise their hands against him are in sedition.

"I have never talked with a veteran here who does not support President Trump." My father, who is buried in Davenport, FL, did not support Trump. Dad was LDS and most of his Mormon veteran friends despised Trump and loved Pence.

If Trump has to resign or be impeached because his election was suspect, Pence was installed into office via that same election and should fall to the same fate.

That must be why McConnell is denying it so vehemently. Oh wait... he is not.

What McConnell does is irrelevant but what you and the rest of the left does is quite telling. all this hatred makes me wonder what the hell is wrong with you people. Donald Trump has done absolutely nothing to hurt you and your family, the country hasn't gone to hell, and the economic results exceed anything Obama ever generated during his 8 years in office except Obama set records for the under employed and discouraged workers, losing the House in 2010-2012 and the Congress in 2014-2016.

Now be the first liberal to answer a direct question, what has Trump done that is so bad and has hurt you and your family?

What EO's and how have those reversals gone into effect, though?



This isn't accurate, though. There's actually a lot of uncertainty around tax reform so businesses aren't factoring it in yet



Which taxes and regulations and how have they already been implemented?



I don't understand how you could possibly think that Trump is pro-business when both of his CEO councils just fell apart...

Those EO's have been posted many times, Google Trump EO's and see when they went into effect and what they did. Trump is pro business by the actions of the stock market and the hiring of business leaders. You think Obama did that?

All downhill from here.
And a long way to the bottom.
History will not treat trump kindly.

Especially as the behind the scenes dialogues come out as well as the tell-all biographies from within.

Yes, we know that you don't care Trump bragged about walking in on underage girls naked. I would go even further it probably gets some Trumpbots off knowing that. If you were the father of a daughter, you should be embarrassed supporting Trump.

And that bothers you because???????? Trump is President of the United States now tell me exactly what he has done that has hurt you and your family? Trump does have a beautiful daughter, where is her outrage?

So it doesn't bother you that he walked in on naked underage girls? That's sick on you man those pageants were open to girls of the age of 14!!!!!!! . His daughter is irrelevant.

Thank you for my future signature.

He has dug his own hole. But everyone else is at fault. I wonder when his base numbers start to falter to low 30's will we see more Repubs. taking a stand against Trump

As you question Illinois' political biases, you miss the fact that 70 of our 102 counties voted for trump as well as his winning our GOP primary. That won't happen again.

There's nothing anecdotal about my real life experiences as an officer of our Sons of the American Legion. I'll be giving a report in 3 weeks on the 'Pill Crisis', and not just on opioids; psychotropic and glandular pills, all of the side effects, as well as the dangerous interactions with alcohol.

If you play nice in your next response, I'll tell you of my recent trip to furthest southern Illinois on the Ohio R. where I saw the eclipse in totality. Talk about dirt poor Appalachian style. (trump country)

I've got a good idea for that area, a bridge across the Ohio R. connecting Kentucky--91 to Illinois--1. Too bad infrastructure planning for the next 50 years is taking such a back seat ...

Thank you for your reply. As a United States Army veteran(1967-1970), I salute you for your past and present service.

I'd like to know more about your experiences in southern Illinois. In another life, I was a competitive clay target shooter. When the ATA joined in the development of the WSRC in Sparta approximately 11 years ago, there were high hopes for an economic boom there. Will you be in Sparta? I also have a friend in Bridgeport, IL who has shared with me some of the economic depravity he witnesses there. It would be easy to toss blame, but I am not even slightly interested in that. I'd like to know what you see in your travels.

Best regards,
Quaz

Which in no way justifies it.

It does justify it. Otherwise we very well would have had another McGovern this year with Bernie. The party nomination process is not the same as the general election process. Frankly a party doesn't even have to hold a primary.

The people have spoken. All of this internecine political intrique is nothing more than burlesque to entertain the idiot proletariat. You know, you dudes out there who believe the WWF is real.

Here's what's really happening: the GOP is fundraising at a rate twice that of their nearest competitor. Come back and tell us how bad President Trump is doing after the upcoming 2018 Midterms. In the real world where people actually work and take care of their property, communism and socialism are being flushed with regularity down the toidy of Liberal Stupidity.

The WWF is World Wildlife Foundation. Wrestling is WWE. World Wrestling Entertainment. The WWF sued them for that abbreviation that they used well in advance and won. So in short, the WWF is real.

Again, I ask you what has Donald Trump done that has hurt you and your family thus generating such hatred? Results matter from the day he took office not what he supposedly did years ago. What ever happened to all those women laying out charges against him? All trumped up charges that mean nothing today as evidenced by the fact that you cannot even answer the questions posed

I wonder exactly what it is you expect from the President since obviously economic numbers and national security don't seem to matter. You want someone like Obama who told you what you wanted to hear but never delivered the results promised and lied a lot more than Trump but more discretely

I knocked your silly statement on its butt and that is all you can answer? You don't speak for veterans generally, only for yourself and those veterans you know. My father was a veteran, I am a veteran, and I know many, many Southern veterans who despise Trump.

Where have I stated that? I do not expect a sensible reply, as you are into false allegations,deflections and outlandish claims.
Facts are not your friend.

At the State level? I believe you are quoting national polls on Congress, and both houses. Yes?
