    Most (actually all of it) is directed at his base of angry resentful men in the Red States....Truth is of little importance...They just like to hear him say it

    Ya, just like she has a workout routine that most 20 year old athletes cant match.

    Anything is possible, but she has missed 3 days of work, she did not miss a single day when her own husband died or after her last surgery. The court is all she has got.

    Also the real update is the White House is making preparations to replace her. https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/...nt-everywhere/

    We are grownups discussing whether the prez will declare a national “emergency.” If it’s an emergency, you can’t wait for it to emerge, planning to declare one next week. It’s here already. It can’t stop being an emergency if Trump is promised money, it still remains one. Even Stephen Miller must know that.

    You thinking of her dying is making your keyboard all sticky, isn't it?

    My God what the hell has this country come to. How the hell did our society produce people like you?

    Well, to be fair, how many people on the other side of the aisle would throw parties if Trump suddenly died?

So, I'd rather not do it because this is something that Congress should easily do. So what we're not looking to do right now is national emergency. What we want to do and have an absolute right to do it, in many ways it's the easy way out. But this is up to Congress and it should be up to Congress they should do it."
    I didn't think he was still reasonable enough to stop pushing his bad position.

    It has appeared quite obvious for days the support wasn't there.

    I wonder who made him see sense. They deserve kudos.

    I don't remember Ginsberg calling people, horse-face, ****, losers, scumbags and calling the media traitors and enemies of the people. Not to mention the DOZENS of other insults and name calling... Words have consequences.

    Quite a bit of difference between the 2 people... The hate directed at Ginsberg is strictly because she';s a liberal. Much of the dislike directed at Trump is because he's an uncouth, mean bully who as NO respect for others, and goes out of his way to make enemies.

    That said I doubt many would 'throw parties'.

    Apparently the beloved Freedom Caucus has discouraged him from the national crisis/emergency action. As stupid as they are, they are less stupid than he is.

    Consider the source of the comment. You need to ask?
