CNN just now: Jake Tapper is such a nice person but he is foolish if he believes that giving Trump
praise for his "accomplishments" is a goof or even necessary thing. Trump's MAGA supporters are not interested in anything that Trump "may" have done for the country..which, to me, would be difficult to identify.
His immigration policies are unAmerican and inhumane. His deregulation has only fattened the pockets of his buddies and enabled a more rapid destruction of our environment.
His Court appointments are disastrous for most people and are about to take away healthcare for millions.
His law enforcement and prison reforms are a myth and minute and just ignore the many people that Obama released, pardoned, or suspended sentence' as well the decriminalization of weed that he began.
And of course, Trumps tax cuts truly only benefited those who didn't need them and who had previously not paid their fair share while demanding more and more tax exemptions. And ask the farmers if they were REALLY helped by his tariffs with China.
Jake, get a grip. Trying to soothe the emotions and feelings of those who are soul-less and bereft of compassion and empathy is wasted energy, unnecessary and undeserved.
Maybe if they were not the walking-dread...maybe. But they are more deserving of our scorn. We don't need to listen to them because we have heard them for almost 4 years. And we should believe them for what they screamed at us the first time.
Has a more jovial look instead of the "I gotta poop" look.
One can accomplish a lot of bad things as well and Trump has done that. He has reshaped the federal courts for decades to come. To his right wing base, that's a very big thing.
I don't think Joe is. Joe has struck an exquisite balance of holding them accountable and naming their misdeeds, with open-heartedness and positivity- eyes on the prize.
Letting them slide all these years was clearly the wrong tack and only empowered them
I think some on the left can't even IMAGINE the pure evil that lies within these people.
Just as Jake began his screed about feeling sorry for DC repubs. Changed again. Now watching Undersea Adventures and then football. Can't take it anymore.
will only legitimize/normalize the destruction he's caused to this country. They need to be: prosecuted, jailed, shunned, laughed out of any position of government or policy, and portrayed forever as un-American. His zombie cult, as much as they despise the media and "fake news", actually crave approval for Trump from mainstream media and credible figures. Don't give it to them, ever.
Dems lose or "don't win by enough" and it's why can't they appeal to rural voters. There is a rift between the centrists (at least we fucking have centrists) and the Liberals.
Reps lose or get obliterated it's a rally party. No one questions if they moved too far right or why they can't appeal to urban people.
The reason our country is in such a shitty mess is because of the "news" channels out there.
To his supporters, that makes him the greatest president ever.
