This thread is an extension of the slander on Dianne Feinstein (who did not praise Trump) Expecting Rain Aug 2017 #10
These attacks on my character are starting to become abusive. DemocratSinceBirth Aug 2017 #11
Stop with the personal attacks on Democratic leaders and on fellow members of DU. Expecting Rain Aug 2017 #12

Amen. Couldn't have said it better. brush Aug 2017 #104
I agree with your TOS statement... defacto7 Aug 2017 #15
Why is it so difficult to say there is nothing nice to say about Trump? DemocratSinceBirth Aug 2017 #16
There is nothing nice to say about Trump! defacto7 Aug 2017 #20
The best thing we have going for us is Trump's aberrant behavior. DemocratSinceBirth Aug 2017 #22
We shouldn't. She shouldn't. defacto7 Aug 2017 #23
His aberrant behavior inures to our benefit. DemocratSinceBirth Aug 2017 #24
I absolutely agree. defacto7 Aug 2017 #30
No, Trump's abberant behavior doesn't enure to our benefit, it hurt real people... Expecting Rain Aug 2017 #31
The more aberrant his behavior the lower his numbers. That is great for us. DemocratSinceBirth Aug 2017 #34

It is a false charge against Dianne Feinstein Expecting Rain Aug 2017 #36
Give it up. Squinch Aug 2017 #38

You need to back off on this. Feinstein committed a faux pas. We can criticize that. brush Aug 2017 #106
Sounds like a threat. Expecting Rain Aug 2017 #108
Pls stop with the exaggeration. There was no threat, and Feinstein screwed up. brush Aug 2017 #109
