If "Anonymous" is correct

and Trump has to be managed 24-7-365 due to his erratic/unstable/ignorant behavior and he is not functionally in charge of the Office of the Presidency and/or capable of discharging his responsibilities, then we essentially now have an UNELECTED "Shadow Government" running the country (a la Mar a Lago) with Trump as a more-or-less figurehead. HOW is this acceptable? How it is acceptable that he is appointing Supreme Court Justices? Where is Veep Mike Pence and what is he doing about this madcap situation we are reportedly in? We are *supposed* to have Constitutional remedies for this sort of thing but nobody is using them!

What's really sad

is that people like her have been brainwashed/conditioned/beaten down to *believe* that they can't/won't make a difference. Of course, part of the GOP mantra is that government "can't do anything right", so I'm sure that helps feed into the conditioning.

And people whom suck are still in office

because.......um.....people like her don't vote! Races have been decided because of a SINGLE vote. Everybody's voice matters!

Wait? What?

We're not ALREADY in crisis with Trump?

Whoever it is is flagrantly misappropriating the term, "Resistance"

They.are.NOT.a.member.of.the.Resistance. They are an ENABLER of somebody who is GROSSLY unqualified to be POTUS, as well as horrific policies, esp. when it comes to immigration!

I don't really get this question

The better question IMHO is, are there any (other) living Republicans like John McCain? And, at least at the moment, I can't think of any. Maybe Lindsey Graham at one time but he seems to have flipped to become a full-blown Trumpist. George HW Bush and Colin Powell and a few older out-of-office Republicans, maybe?

I feel like trying to compare McCain to Democrats is kind of like comparing Apples to Oranges, not to mention that I'm also unsure of whether or not you're talking about his *actual* record vs. his idealized mythological record.
