    I don’t really think using Trump as an excuse is particularly a good idea. I want to be better than him...

    Well 'being better than him' was essentially what Michelle Obama espoused when she said 'when they go low, we go high'. We see how that turned out.

    It doesn't matter what happened. The propaganda machinery of the richest people and corporations on earth - that own the Democratic Party and for which most progressive Democrats are essentially their cult worshiping slaves - predictably will print whatever they want to attack Trump in protection of slavery in foreign countries (most Democrats love slaves working for them as much as always) and to minimize wages in unlimited immigration.

    Thus, it is predictable that rather than actually covering the rally or what Trump said, they refused to cover than and instead just when with the generic "protesters" line. It means nothing other than reminds that the richest people on earth hate Trump and love the Democratic Party, who will do ANYTHING they want acting as their employees.

    You can always hope everyone is killed in a nuclear WW3 as an outcome in the next election. Your 2016 candidate promising war with Russia lost.Until then you don't get your war with Russia nor got the next Democratic Party's Vietnam war on steroids in Syria. But there are plenty of shoot-em-up war movies you can watch on TV to satisfy the war lust you urge in your messages.

    People need to remember that over 90% of all American war deaths - and American caused war deaths - have been under Democratic Party leadership. People need to remember how much Democrats want us in wars everywhere - in war in Syria, in war in Eastern Europe, in war in the Middle East, in war in Syria of course, in war in Asia, in war everywhere.

    The Democratic Party was begun as the racist political party of war, death, destruction, genocide and racism. It has never stopped being the party of war and death. The USA has never had any greater enemy than the Democratic Party - then and now.

    I wonder if he mentioned he is considering an invite to watch Putin's troops march by and salute Vladimir in Moscow on May Day of all days.

    President Trump on Monday hailed the legacy of the American armed forces in a Veterans Day speech that came against the backdrop of protests and political turmoil that has engulfed his presidency.

    Trumpís remarks at Madison Square Park in Manhattan were largely devoid of politics, but even in New York on Veterans Day the president could not entirely avoid the political headlines that have dogged him in Washington.
    ================================================== =====
    'Protesters spelled out the words "impeach" and "convict" in letters taped to the windows of a high-rise overlooking the park, and chants of ďlock him upĒ were heard from the crowd.' Not surprising in as liberal a city as NYC.
    He honored it overseas on a weekend before and people lost their marbles about that. There are some people who just cannot be pleased.

    Not to worry.

    If New York City once again suffers the kind of outrageous crime rates that it experienced in the 1970s, then NYC will become much less "liberal."

    In fact, that may happen to many "liberal" cities, including San Francisco, Seattle, etc.

    Those protesters did not have the decency to show a little class even on Veterans' Day. It figures.

    If Trump claimed to have done that today, it wouldn’t be the first time he worked this scam.
    He was fined 2 mil for that particular scam.

    Donald Trump fined $2m for misusing charity for political ends | US news | The Guardian

    The money left was ordered to be distributed among charities. He was also ordered to pay back the11-grand and change he took from the charity and used to buy Tim Tebow memorabilia at auction.
    This was last Thursday. Amazing, isn't it, how inured we all are now. I mean, this would have ended any political career just a few years ago.
    Oh yeah, he also siphoned off ten grand to pay for a portrait of himself.
    Presidential. Very presidential.
    Wasn't there a fraud conviction recently too? Yeah, that one was $25M.

    How this corrupt shyster and scam artist is even at large, much less sitting in the White House, is impossible for anyone who isn't an American conservative to understand.
    Better a sister in a whore-house than a brother in the Conservative Party.
