    Mother Africa, the cradle of mankind, has joined Lady Liberty in shedding angry and bitter tears at the thought of what mankind and liberty have come to represent.

    Why does anyone refer to him as president? Calling him by a title implies respect that most people don't have for him anyway.

    Whenever he comes up in conversation, I just call him Trump. He deserves no better.

    I suggest everyone else and the media do the same.

    Today, being home sick, is a great reminder that I need to be actively involved in my church's downtown ministries. My husband has news channel on 24/7 and the more that is reported the angrier I get.

    Ryan didn't condemn Trumps language, he said it was an unfortunate set of words. No, Mr Ryan the words are vulgar and racist.

    I wouldn’t put it past all the leakers to leak the medical report. He inspires everyone to leak!

    Last night, it was maybe Sean Hannity had to invoke President Johnson using the "N" word! Gratuitously he never mentions if not for him civil rights legislation would have been stalled for another decade in the SOUTH! He may have been a disgusting pig, but his legacy is secure; unlike others like Hannity and even Trump who'll be noted for being run out of office before his time at this rate! :scream: :COP: :drama: :kickass: :lynch: :mitchell:

    I know, it is PAINFUL. In our house he's Chump, Dump, or Rump, generally. Or Orange Person, or Cheeto in Chief. Or Idiot. Or any number of appellations.

    MSNBC is interviewing a Carrier employee (ex with lay off) who voted for Trump. She feels he used her and others at Carrier to push his agenda, but stopped short of saying it was a mistake.

    I’ve lived in the USA for nearly 3 years now coming from Canada originally. I have one American daughter and I’m just ashamed for her. I want her to have a president to look up to, not one who looks down on others.

    OT in this thread but may be not. Just saw the movie The Post. It brought tears to my eyes toward the end when the Supreme Court decision was read about what our founders were thinking when they gave freedom to the press, and when they announced (paraphrasing) that the President (alone) is not the State.

    I don't have confidence in our current SC.

    I liked the article, and it mentioned many of the things I think about when people talk about immigrants coming here and how every group that has ever come has been unwelcome to some, but I think the second part of Trump's statement - Why can't we get immigrants from Norway - that really puts the racism in context and why he shouldn't receive a pass.

    Wasn't that ridiculous? As they were talking, I should have counted how many times I said "not you" to 45 and "not him" when Carson was talking. How in the world does Carson stand next to him? And Pence with that smarmy look on his face. Funny, the moron didn't look so orange today. He was so pale he was almost gray.

    As a fellow former Republican, I so completely agree with you. I am so furious that the leadership does nothing to speak out against 45 and his blatant racism. I too am ashamed to have ever been a Republican, and I firmly believe my late, beloved, stauch Republican grandfather would be just as apalled as I am.

    @jeffisjeff I listened to that same interview on NPR, I can't begin to say how much I was rolling my eyes, and how badly it made me want to toss the radio out the window.

    A facebook friend posted the following and asked to share.

    Now and always --

    Thank you Susan C. Friedenberg. Well said. Powerful accurate words.

    I listened as they called my President a Muslim (as if it were a bad thing). I listened as they called him a monkey. I listened as they said he wasn't born here. I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could. I saw the pictures of him as Hitler. I listened as they openly said that they will oppose him at every turn. I watched as they did just that. I listened and I watched and I paid attention. Now, I'm being called on to be tolerant. To move forward. To "Get over it." To accept this...

    I will not. Our healthcare will now be taken away. no more affordable care for our sick, hungry, poor, and veterans. Under Obama, my health insurance is $85/month, which i can barely afford. my car insurance is just $25/month (from Insurance Panda). Under Trump, health care will be $500 a month. i fear the day i get sick or injured.

    I will not accept this. I will do my part to make sure this great American mistake becomes the embarrassing footnote of our history that it deserves to be, as quickly as possible. I will do my part to limit the damage that this man can do to my country. I will vote. I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice. I will do things I won't mention publicly. Do not call for my tolerance. I've tolerated all I can. Now it's their turn to tolerate ridicule. Be aware, make no mistake about it, every single thing that goes wrong in our country from this day forward (and since his inauguration) is Trump's fault just as much as far more than some thought it was Obama's. I find it unreasonable for them to expect from me what they were entirely unwilling to give.

    They will find no shelter here.

    If you agree, please cut and paste and share.

    I agree with most of the first article. One disagreement I have is about China, which is exempted from this group of countries Trump hates. I don't believe he just excluded China. He excluded Asians from the Far East because they are not from Africa (referring to the skin color).

    Since I slagged off Lindsey Graham in another thread just a few days ago, I'm going to post something nice about him in this thread. :saint:

    A Senior Republican Senator Admonishes Trump: ‘America Is an Idea, Not a Race’
    Graham is on friendly terms with the President and had the guts to speak up to him in front of his peers. Well done, Sen. Graham! :respec:

    The Supreme Court is a political institution, you should never have confidence in them. They have a long history over 200 years of infamously scandalous decisions, long decried by history and often reversed by later decisions.

    I'm at a point when it takes more than that for a Republican to earn my respect. There are too many who disagree with Trump and/or are appalled by him behind closed doors. It doesn't take a lot of courage to say something behind closed doors to other who probably know what Trump is like anyway. Senator Durbin is still the only one who confirmed what Trump had said to the media and because no Republican has the courage to stand up for their country, it looks like partisanship.
    No matter what Graham said behind closed doors, by not speaking out publicly, I still consider him to be complicit and enabling.
