    Trump Had 2 Openings Today.....and blew it!

    Trump addressed the National Prayer Breakfast this morning and had his arch enemy (Pelosi) sitting 4 chairs away.

    A simple gesture of reconciliation and a few kind words could have worked wonders towards a beginning of easing the hostilities of the two parties but he chose to be a complete asshole.


    Trump then held a Victory Party.

    He could have addressed his argument of being targeted by the Democrats and nobody would have argued. He could have been a bit humbled and appreciative. But he had to go right past stupid by trashing on every perceived opponent in the Democrat party. I agree with many that the democrats set the bar way too low for impeachment, and I always will. But the way he acted today was one of the reasons that I always believed that he didn't deserve the office to begin with.............as I have stated many times on here.

    I know that I am getting older, but I miss the days of Reagan (R) and Tip O'niell (D) going loggerheads all week long, and then playing cards together upstairs of the White House at night and actually finding compromises along the way.

    The Regressive Left has declared war on America and on truth and on decency with no intention of negotiating a cease fire....And Trump is not a Chump like most of the legacy Republicans were....those cucks who betrayed the values that they claimed to hold for so many years as they lied constantly..

    I agree. There was a time when Republicans and Democrats did work together for the common good. Those days seem to have gone away. If anything, the political hate from both sides has gotten worse. Each blaming the other side. In the end, it will be the average American who gets hurt.

    Agreed, but like the members who have drank the Kool-Aid in the Party of Trump say "Trump is just being Trump". I hope no one here really believed Trump would be repentant, apologetic or "learned his lesson". Is there really any doubt he'd be the pissed-off Enfant Terrible, venom-spewing hater he always proved to be?

    Awesome! You're the second Trump fan today who applauds the destruction of the Republican party. The $64 question is "What is your name for the new party?"

    Will it have Trump's name on it? Will it reflect Trump's German heritage? His race?

    In every speech about Iraq, including his speech effectively declaring war, Bush talks about the victims of genocide and mass graves under Saddam. Do you know why there was a no-fly zone?
