Sunfire :  i dont see any problem with the media calling out trump and his team for his blantant lies, the video of acousta holding onto a mic, and trumps team blantantly lying about him assaulting/shoving, whatever they claimed to an aide…. is that really the type of shenanigans americas should support for the remainder of his term….

a lot of this stuff if not all of it is well documented and on video, but yet the white house acts like it isnt and just creates stuff up to cover their tracks. Its crazy…

Sunfire :  Thank you for answering my curiousity. I appreciate your thoughtful answer. If by any chance he runs again, would you consider electing him if he has program that aligned with your aforementioned preference (e.g.,Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, etc) or would you be steadfast with Trump considering the improvement you feel happened to you during his at least in these 2 years?

lleello :  I’m not sure because, like I said, I don’t know enough about Bernie’s platform to answer with honesty.  I would be open to hearing what he has to say, though, absolutely.

techmom:  I find it very bizarre that people are calling CNN liberal news when for all the years I’ve been paying attention, they’ve just been calling all Presidents on their BS. The right lapped them up when they were all over President Obama, but now that humfty is in office, CNN is liberal/fake news. 

I’m so tired of the sniveling and whining old man who has occupied the whitehouse for the last two years. He has got to go.

Sunfire :  

I appreciate the thoughtful tone to your responses and am glad this thread has not turned aggressive. Obviously, this discussion has become more than just the Acosta topic and I’m curious how you would respond to the below:

I know you mention that you don’t always agree with the way that Trump goes about discourse, but I don’t understand how you can say that he is emphasizing Dem’s alleged hypocrisy in the same breath as saying that it is ok that he acts like a bully because supposedly the Dem’s are bullies. One can’t emphasize hypocrisy by unironically doing the very thing that one is allegedly highlighting.

Shouldn’t the president be a person to look to for an example on how to behave? And do you really think it’s appropriate to follow the example that you gave of children responding to a bully by being a bigger bully? Being a “bigger bully” does not stomp out bullying. It only perpetuates it.

I don’t see how you can see Trump as having the potential for bipartisanship when he specifically only speaks out in support of Republicans and condemns Democrats. There is never even a neutral with him. I can remember no prior president, Republican or Democrat, speaking with that much partianship, in such a childish and vitriolic manner.

Sunfire:  I’m very interested to see if the $100 extra I get in a month actually translates into a fair tax return. I have a sneaking suspicion I will be paying or getting back less than I was under the previous tax laws so that I wouldn’t hold that little nugget up as a success, yet.

There are more people who do not own stocks/have a 401K than those that do. Please talk with them to see how the reality of 45’s presidency is striking them. It matters a lot less that the doing better than average folks than the people working 2-3 jobs just to pay rent. They need real tax relief the uber-wealthy do not. 

Respect is earned, not given. Drumf has done nothing to earn my respect, and I doubt he ever will.
