    I ask out of genuine curiosity: do you believe that none of the descriptions given to Trump apply?I was rooting for Hillary, but I will admit that she seemed self-entitled and a bit to quick to dismiss any criticisms.She really should have railed against the DNC treatment of Sanders, and agreed with Trump that the government has lots of problems.She probably didn’t because it didn’t look like she needed to, she was going to win..One last question – Do you think the appointments that the appointments that Trump has announced will really ‘Drain the Swamp’? I think that was the reason why he won, enough people who feel ignored, scorned and dis-empowered want change.I’ve heard lots about the fate of Obama-care and Climate change, but precious little about gerrymandering (a HUGE problem in the USA) or how laws are made.

    There was nothing fair about the way trump got in office. The one sided hacking by the Russians, the antiquated electoral college trumping the popular vote, the double standards of the media allowing Trump to get away with any bizarre comment he wanted to make, while continually making a fuss over an email server. Every other country in the world just calls the majority vote, the vote, not some sort of lesser “popular” vote. Trump ran as a joke and now we all will pay for this clown. The time has come to allow for the majority vote to be the determining vote. The electoral college must go along with the confederate flag, and other dark abominations throughout the history of the United States.

    Trump “election” is a great victory for Russia. They were on the ropes – sanctions tightening; economy crumbling. Now Putin’s White House team will help bring about the end of the American world order. Opportunities for Russian mischief will abound.

    Most of your gibberish is marred by lack of name recognition like “obozo” which is senseless. Don’t we have the right to stop murdering people we don’t know and have not gone through our own legal system? Using drones to LRK people who some have identified, but not verified are such-an- such isn’t good law enforcement and lousy war fighting. War Crimes is what the US does. Every day and counting. We are just too powerful to be ever brought up on charges and censured by the UN. which is a paper tiger anyway.

    You castigate President Trump when you accused him of saying he wouldn’t abide by the results if he lost (which he never said)

    .

    No, he was asked—twice—in the last debate if he would abide by the results of the election, and he equivocated and avoided the question better than Bill Clinton ever could. Nice to know we’re getting an outsider to drain the swamp.

    .

    Your problem with the Russians is that they didn’t attack all candidates equally?

    Very interesting.

    .

    “the antiquated electoral college trumping the popular vote,”

    .

    You are down on it because it is old?

    So is representative democracy.

    Throw that out too?

    .

    It was set up in part to get the smaller states to join the proposed new federal government.

    You want to abolish it now that they are trapped?

    Very interesting.

    .

    “the double standards of the media allowing Trump to get away with any bizarre comment he wanted to make, while continually making a fuss over an email server.”

    .

    They reported on all the actions. The American people got to judge which were worse or more forgivable.

    You want to overrule their votes?

    Fascinating.

    .

    Maybe the government should order the press to report what you want the People to know and how to think about it,

    .

    " Every other country in the world just calls the majority vote, the vote, not some sort of lesser “popular” vote."

    .

    Every other country is some other country.

    We don’t have to copy them just to get along.

    That would be childish.

    .

    Also a number of other countries are dictatorships, so “the vote” is not a matter of discussion.

    You really should know something before describing everything

    .

    “The time has come to allow for the majority vote to be the determining vote. The electoral college must go”

    .

    So you want to throw out the Constitution including the way it establishes amendment? I assure you the small

    The Russians only hacked and reported on the people they disliked. Then, the us media reported on what a foreign government meddling had to say. You ok with that? Some are smart enough to know the shoe could be on the other foot someday.

    Well. it IS a more accurate way of saying it.

    I do prefer accuracy and truth, don’t understand why it so bothers so many others.

    .

    — The Pope told Americans he disapproved of Trump’s silly wall construction project.

    .

    — Britain told the world they didn’t want a racist like Trump entering their country.

    .

    — Mexico told America Trump was lying when he claimed Mexico would pay for American construction of the silly wall.

    .

    — All Americans paying attention knew powerful foreign interests opposed Hillary in power and that Russia’s Putin favored Trump because trump would kill NATO and allow their imperialism.

    .

    Only the most ignorant didn’t know this was going on.

    It was noted repeatedly here.

    .

    " Some are smart enough to know the shoe could be on the other foot someday."

    .

    You are afraid people will want to stay in the dark because they are afraid someday the flaws of those heartless, money-grubbing Republicans might be exposed?

    You would prefer that darkness?

    “It doesn’t have beautiful view but it does have a nice family. We don’t call an entire nationality of people rapists and drug dealers.”

    He didn’t call them “rapists and drug dealers.”

    He said “rapists OR drug dealers.”

    He even allowed that SOME just MIGHT be good people.

    (I assume those were the many he hired in his hotels.)

    .

    “We don’t ask a foreign power to hack the computers of people we disagree with.”

    .

    He didn’t actually call on them to hack Hillary.

    He assumed they already had.

    That was his way of driving home the very fact that she had exposed our country to possible enemies who could use the information to harm us and our allies.

    .

    “We don’t call prisoners of war losers. We don’t mock the physically disabled.”

    .

    He IS guilty of those things and many others.
