Oh, how cute...so it's "TDS"?

-45 supporters find the darnedest ways to excuse their leader's inexcusable behavior...

Any positive news on -45? Yeah, that is fake news.

What does -45 have to do with anything? The reporter of this article failed to vet any of people mentioned in the stories. No names just stories.

"What does -45 have to do with anything?"

His shutdown. His mess.

"The reporter of this article failed to vet any of people mentioned in the stories. No names just stories."

Facts are just sooooooooooo inconvenient for you, aren't they? Never mind that -45 puts out urban legends and outright lies in every statement he makes...but I guess you prefer those, right?

What matters to me is the political/ethical/moral battle being fought in DC. Eschoo's and Speier's comments don't matter to me. I'm an Independent with strong Libertarian roots, I support them as moderates, and their comments are of no interest because they won't change anything that's happening during the Great War to Save US Democracy. I call it "Civil War II against the ignorant rabble". I know that's politically incorrect, but it is a time for brutal honesty, and NOT for political correctness. This societal divide is over 200 years old, it keeps recurring, and it needs to be stopped. "Some people are more equal than others", and tRUMPites lose very badly in that contest, so they're the obvious target in this War.

Strange argument you make...it’s ok to lie and you consider lies you like to be facts. Can u prove any part of the stories told by people are true? Name them and lets follow.

You probably bought the whole anti catholic rants last weekend.

I guess I’m not as naive as some people who believe whatever they’re told.

They all need to do their job and start compromising. At the same time they need to start respecting the office of the President, even if they don't agree with him on everything. That's just how the system is supposed to work, no matter who is in office. That's why there are elections every two and four years. In the end, however, government employees can now get a taste of what it's like to work in the public sector where many if not most jobs come with less benefits and the possibility of losing your job within two weeks always looms. Other than that, the media is largely to blame for the rise of Donald Trump. And make no mistake, they continue to make plenty of money off of him and all the fake news coming from both sides.
