I guess being greedy and ruthless is a requirement for being a billionaire.

Others are greedy and ruthless, but haven't yet reached the billion mark, like Bill and Hillary.
And yet, some people voted for Trump in part because he is rich. Some people see wealth as a prerequisite for political success.

I think people who voted for Trump voted against their own interests. Even the wealthy. And that would not necessarily bother me, if their unwise vote did not affect me, too.

Re: "Free Melania"

The doublethink in this thread would make George Orwell proud. Or gag.

"Nuh-uh! Everyone is welcome! WE'RE INCLUSIVE YOU BIGOTS!"

"Except you pro-lifers! You're NOT WELCOME! If you're not pro abortion, you must be PRO TRUMP! And EVIL!"

"Well, except Muslims who are pro-life and pro sharia, join us, oppressed sisters!"

I keep thinking we'll reach peak Derp at some point. But it seems that the left is always finding a way to drill deeper, and that that Derp is destined to flow stronger as we go forward.

There's more derp in the White House than ever before so it seems that the derp outside it is just providing balance.

It's a derp world.

He's trolling you people. And it is beautiful. If he does nothing but troll you all for the next four years, it will be a one of the best presidencies in 100 years. (But I tend to like "caretaker presidents")

What?

He is showing all his insecurities. The man is not in control of his own mood, Kivlor. I am afraid it could be disastrous for our country.

I hope his cabinet can reign him in. Or more mature Republicans, like John McCain and Lindsay Graham.

Right. And the protesters were trolling the troll. Everyone has gone meta.

I think Kivlor knows on some level that what so many are saying about Trump is true. But it is hard for people who have been boonswoggled to admit that they might have been wrong. Probably scary and extremely convicting to think they contributed to what is coming.

I don't think the protesters are trolling. They seem pretty serious. Or are you saying that they weren't really protesting anything? That they just got out, assaulted people, broke windows, and otherwise committed felonies just to troll the right?

Are you saying that they weren't protesting anything? What do the women here who were taking these marches seriously think of your comment about their "advocacy"?

It's called cognitive dissonance. The desire to believe what you already think is true and seek support for that believe, whether objectively supportable or not, is very strong. This instinct is most easily manipulated in the fearful.

I was simply provided requested information from another member. I don't have a dog in this fight but I'd like to see a written list of the top three or four policies they are in opposition to. I know they may be out there but I'm too sorry and lazy to look them up.

If you don't embody controversy, what you say will become just another part of the media driven culture of stifling thought and debate about issues.

My position is I voted for the person I thought would be a better CEO. Was I boonswoggled? Maybe, maybe not. All anybody can do is prognosticate. After all, few of us know Trump (or Hillery) and formulate our opinions from numerous outside sources, most of which promoting their own agendas. Give it several months and we'll know more about it.

I am not sure who the "they" is to whom you are referring. But I will give you what constitutes my short list at the moment:

Health care. Like universal access to it.

Education. Like improving it rather than dismantling it.

Continued economic progress. Like for everyone not just the lucky few like myself who will benefit from trickle down.

Because Ukraine and Italy, among other places, have both taught us that CEOs are great choices for national leaders 🙄

I am curious what caused you to think this person was a decent CEO?
