What would happen if a white kid at school told a kid of color to "go back to your own country?"

Let's say the school principle is a Republican. The racist kid was recorded saying it and multiple complaints were made. What would happen?

At any time Democratic lawmakers could hold Trump to account for his racism

Trump's support is exactly the same as when he was inaugurated, and currently trending upwards. Any messaging by Democrats that is negative about Trump isn't working.

Trump's support comes from Republicans and in part from Independents. I don't believe that a whole 44% of the nation is racist or would support Trump's most blatantly racist attack yet, against the four female lawmakers.

The statements by Democrats in reaction to Trump's attack aren't going to change a single vote.

They aren't going to reach the low-information voter. A lot of low-information voters aren't even aware of examples of Trump being racist.


Trump looks strong to his supporters. They think he is strong on defending America and strong on the economy. They think he is delivering what he promised. There's nothing that his supporters hear that contradict that.


At any time, Democrats could take control of the news narrative, but they choose not to. We had eight years of Republicans trying to bring down the best president in our lifetimes - "look at the debt," "he's raising the debt ceiling again," "he lied when he said you can keep your own doctor," "the Obama apology tour," etc. These were coordinated attacks, with Republicans working as a team. On attacks against Trump, there's nothing. There is no plan. There is no coordination. There's no strategy.


My message to Democratic lawmakers: Wake up! Our nation is under attack. Have a strategy. Fight dirty. Stop being nice. Stop dithering. Ditherers don't get elected. Work together as a team.


Do what ever you have to. Make Trump's unstable personality, his callousness and his racism a crisis. Make sure nearly every American knows there is a big difference between Trump and the Democratic Party.

It isn't working in a piecemeal approach. One Democrat says this, another Tweets that. That isn't proportionate to what is happening. We can't just wait for investigations or impeachment proceedings to damage Trump. We can't just wait for the economy to go south. These things may never happen.


Ideas on how to handle the racist attacks - Gather all Democratic lawmakers together and make a statement. Hold a press conference. Demand an apology. Refuse to work with Republicans until you get one. Bring the government to a halt if you need to. Make this the biggest story in the media that will drag on for weeks. Force Trump to be humiliated and come back begging Democrats to save him, and for once have to apologize - thereby making him look weak.

These are just some ideas, but whatever you are doing right now is not working. This isn't a game. It isn't a rehearsal. Stop fighting half-heartedly. By doing nothing other than just saying it is wrong, and therefore not changing a thing, you are part of the problem.

Find some gumption and bring a gun to a gun fight. Be strong. Show America you are pissed at this wannabe fascist and enough is enough. Look like strong leaders. Stand united to defend America and its values. At least try to look like you are trying to bring the bastard down.

This parade must be the laughing stock of leaders around the world.

A 6th grade history lesson, an unenthusiastic crowd, and some planes and helicopters occasionally flying by. If you've been to any air show in Europe or seen any military parade in any small European military town, you'd be laughing your head off. This is utterly pathetic!

What birthday gift would you like to give Trump?

I would give him a cactus with instructions to tell him what to do with it (would have to be in pictures!).

Ref: Bill Barr - Are we now in a constitutional crisis?

Bill Barr has already deliberately misled the public about the contents of the Mueller Report, in order to serve the interests of Donald Trump.

He also obviously supports the lack of co-operation by Trump into ongoing investigations.

Now he is weaponizing law enforcement agencies as a diversion and to feed the Trump narrative. On Trump's orders, he will try to show that the entire Russia investigation was a hoax, and Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted, but wasn't because Comey and others wanted her to win the election.

Barr's own words and actions show that he is not prepared to protect the constitutional rights of lawmakers to provide oversight. He is only interested in serving the needs of the president.

It is clear that the Attorney General is now working, not for America, as he is supposed to, but for Donald Trump.

Are we now in a constitutional crisis?

What can be done about it?

Should Barr be impeached?

What realistically will happen to Barr?

And lastly, is Barr the most deplorable human being to ever be appointed Attorney General?

Trump's true abortion position has three SHOCKING and revealing exceptions

Trump explained his abortion position to a crowd of enthusiastic supporters:

“As most people know, and for those who would like to know, I am strongly Pro-Life, with the three exceptions – If I commit rape, if I commit incest, and if she doesn't breach the NDA, I will protect the life of the mother – the same position taken by Ronald Reagan,”

Biden: Trump proves again he knows nothing about history or anything else.

No, Biden didn't say that, but this is the attack I would like Biden to use to follow up to Trump"s praise of Robert E Lee. It is time Trump was called out for being a dumbass. Calling out Trump"s stupidity will surely get under his skin.

Being here is a miracle to me.

My wife says "there's nothing there" in the Mueller report, after being

exposed to Fox News. Should I argue with her about it or not?

Based on Trump"s past 24 hours, estimate his IQ

He couldn't remember his father was born in New York, not Germany.

The noise from wind farms cause cancer.

He could only say oranges, each time he meant to say origins.

He thought congress could get rid of judges and that's what it should be doing.

He thought the midterm elections were rigged and that's why Republicans did badly.

He said he thought immigration could be fixed in 45 minutes.

He forgot he had already said he was happy for the Mueller report to be released.

He thought it was a good strategy to repeal ACA and come up with a replacement after 2020.

Closing the border with Mexico wouldn't be good economically, after saying on Friday that it would be a win.

Based on this, what do you think is his current IQ?
