    It's too soon to say when Donald Trump's presidency will end, but it's not too soon to say how it will end. It will end in disgrace. And when it does, Trump's defenders will turn on him. Some already have.

    Trump's sycophants are as loyal as he is which is to say, not at all. In The Art of the Deal, Trump counted Roy Cohn as a friend, calling him "a truly loyal guy." After Cohn contracted AIDS, Trump "dropped him like a hot potato," according to Susan Bell, Cohn's longtime secretary

    The people who are loyal to Trump are loyal not because they like him as a person but because they have something to gain from him. In an interview with The New York Times, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) admitted that he embraced Trump "to try to be relevant." So far, his plan has worked superbly Graham has a recurring slot on Hannity. Once Trump is gone, however, Graham will no longer need the man he once dismissed as "the world's biggest jackass." He will find someone else to latch onto, and he will forget about Trump just as he forgot about John McCain.

    .......

    Trump's post-presidency will be sadder and more pathetic than his presidency. His presidential library will be neither presidential nor a library. His memoir, if someone writes one for him, will be dreadful ghostwritten, poorly written, replete with falsehoods and errors, and bereft of insights and useful information. His presidential papers will contain such statements as "Horseface"; "trade wars are good, and easy to win"; "a very stable genius"; and "your favorite President, me!" No mainstream public figure will want to be associated with his legacy.

    .......

    After resigning in disgrace, Richard Nixon partially rehabilitated himself. He wrote a 1,120-page memoir and a succession of books about foreign policy. He counseled presidents and appeared on serious news programs to opine on world events. Time columnist Hugh Sidey, who had chided Nixon during Watergate, called him a "strategic genius." President Clinton gave Nixon a fawning eulogy.

    Jimmy Carter is widely regarded as having been a better ex-president than a president. His approval rating rose from 31 percent in 1980 to 64 percent in 2009, thanks largely to his humanitarian work. According to The Washington Post, he "helped renovate 4,300 homes in 14 countries for Habitat for Humanity." Trump, on the other hand, reportedly appropriated money meant for a children's cancer charity.

    ............

    After Trump leaves office and has fewer things to do, people will have fewer reasons to listen to him. Ex-President Trump will call Fox & Friends every morning, but they will ignore him. Instead of ranting on air, he will leave voicemails for Steve Doocy's assistant's intern.


    ====================

    Let's mark this one down. Trump's presidency will end with a whimper, if not in disgrace. And when that happens, virtually every Trump acolyte (including those here on DP) will begin the process of distancing themselves from the legacy of corruption, incompetence, immorality and shame that Trump will leave.

    Already, we're seeing some of that from the Righties on this board. And it's only going to get worse.

    • 2. Secondly, what does the politics of social security have to do with racism?
    • 3. Lastly, the very unfortunate (yet revealing) fact that you THINK criticism of Republicans' plans to reduce benefits and privatize social security have ANYTHING to do with the issue of racism in America....PROVES (yet again) that you (and people like you) have no freaking clue what racism is...nor what racism looks like.

    Face it, you people play that same old, tired, pathetic "race victim" card every time someone catches you saying something bigoted, or promoting another racist conservative policy. You can't defend any of your white grievance views on their merits, so you throw up that same idiotic "race victim" smoke screen, over and over. You know this. I know this. Everyone knows it.



    ...Says every lying right-wing Trump acolyte.

    Of course, you and I both know you can't point to a single lie from me, now don't we?

    Being called a liar...by know liars...is hardly something for people like me to worry about.
    It was my great grandfather and I didn't know him well. Sometime people are just in an club or organization because they are Democrats.

    We can sit here and call each other liars all day but, only one of us is.

    Saying that your great grandpappy was a Klansman but "you don't know IF he was a white supremacist" might be the most ignorant thing I have ever read anywhere, at any time, perhaps in my entire life.

    They were until the Civil Rights act, then they all switched to Republican and have been so ever since. They are Trump's base.

    The Left fought that too. You people need to review history.

    The Civil Rights act passed. Someone was for it. The Republican Southern Strategy is all over the history books and Southern states have voted Republican ever since.

    Civil Rights Act of 1964 - Wikipedia

    I said they fought it not, that they were successful...obviously.

    Yes, it is true. The old time Democrats were the right wingers of the era and they were the supremacists and segregationists. And even the most moderate Democrats of that time wanted "separate but equal" which was a sick joke with a wink and a nudge, as anyone who ever saw "separate but equal" accommodations will agree.

    And somewhere along the way, Democrats in the East, West and North came to the conclusion that they were on the wrong side of history, and they gradually disowned their "Solid South" Dixie Dem brethren, and embraced an egalitarian left leaning liberal agenda instead.
    And eventually, after trying various third party independent attempts and tasting doom, the southern Dems finally embraced the Republican Party. The Southern Strategy turned the South deep red.

    But thank you for reminding us for the 9,783,873,485,723,454,827,435th time how it used to be well over a century ago!
    Maybe you could brush up on the events of the mid-twentieth century that led up to the transformation between the two parties.

    But seeing as how you can't even figure out that Klan membership is white supremacy, I have my doubts.

    He just tripped and fell into a KKK meeting, right?

    Come on now, the KKK is defined as a white supremacist group.
