      “It’s this simple: the more seats the GOP keeps, the more they’ll think that their only problem is that they’re not Trumpy *enough*”.

      For the GOP this is the entire ballgame, in their eyes the ONLY problem with Trump is that he doesn’t keep his racism hidden inside those “quiet rooms” that Romney talked about. Trump isn’t polite with his racism, and the GOP can tut tut Trump only so much.

    Can someone PLEASE explain to these young black “Trumpies’? They are part of this “Walk-a-way” from the dem party. One young man was “we are on the way march to the WH , horing our wonderful president” I truly believe they have lost their minds.

    “Active duty US troops are barred from domestic law enforcement unless there is an emergency…”
    “When the Trump administration first asked the Pentagon to send troops to the southern border, the administration wanted the troops to take on duties that Department of Defense officials viewed as law enforcement functions…
    The Pentagon said NO.”

    –That was 15 hours ago. Yet still hearing about military and Trump. What’s the deal?

      “military planning documents, dated Oct. 27 and published by Newsweek, predicted that only 20 percent of the migrants,

    I am disappointed that Jake Tapper is asking if she wants ppl to turn their guns in? I thought he was better – or maybe I just hoped that…

    Why is that even a question???????? He is Jewish …. and considering the recent shooting you would think that he wouldn’t be shy to advocate getting rid of guns. Period. Maybe MSM needs mass shootings to still remain relevant – with their non-stop coverage of that when it happens.

      during this moment of crisis for democracy, it is hard for me to understand how anyone with a sound mind, empathy, and morals can decided that it is too cumbersome to vote or that their vote is not important.

      who are these people????

      • 168 CEB
        November 4, 2018 at 3:08 pm

        They are people without sound minds, morality or empathy. There are millions of them and many of them vote. We have to make sure that people who are the opposite take their heads out of their asses and vote for their own self preservation and that of the country.

      Older people tend to wait to vote on the official voting day, my mother and older brother fall into this category. At this point, everyone who is going to vote know that they are going to do so and will. Panic tweeting only causes needless fear and anxiety.
