    Wow. So he fired the head of the investigation into the whole Russia affair on the recommendation of the man who recused himself from the investigation. Wow.

    So Trump fired Comey today. That is not good. He was probably getting to close to the truth....

    Men are fragile beings and far too insecure to ever elect a female to a position they could never hold themselves.

    Nixon, Reagan, and Bush were political abominations and this looks every bit as absurd.

    Its a terrible move mainly because he is a bigot, a racist, a sexist. He is a sexual predator. He talks about his own daughter like she one nice piece of ass. He is a fraud - see here how many brankcruptcies he has under his belt and how many people he screwed in the process. Add to that "Trump university" (trial for fraude is due sometime in November).

    How do you explain to your kids they are not suppose to bully, and they should treat people with respect..when the biggest fool of them all has just been elected President. Apparently, Americans hate women, specially Clinton more than racism and all that shit about him.

    But really, at the end of the day, this vote for him was mostly a major "FUCK YOU" to the elite in Washington. Both parties have a serious introspection to do.
    Nope...men arent scared of a good strong chick...boys are...the usa is filled with them. Prob is the ladies tend to be more subtrifugal than substantive...of their own kind. E.g. sabotaging the fem vote cuz she doesn't fit the Palin mold of dumb and pretty. Catty kitties in the usa...dudes ate more phallic prostrates. (Yes i mean limp)

    I also agree with what you said about him being likely to step down. I've said it for a while now, I really do think he will be overwhelmed and miss his cushy lifestyle. That said, maybe the guy - as misguided as he is - really does think he has the answers and really wants to "help" his country.

    Josh, this is something that irks me so much about Politics. After this circus of Debates and Campaigns I really think they need to pass a law that to run for The Presidency of the United States in the future you must have a certain amount of political experience. No more Businessmen, Doctors, Celebs, Sports Figures, People off the street . If you don't have a certain amount of political experience from some other office you represented you can't run for President. I think Donald Trump is going to quickly become overwhelmed with this position and it wouldn't surprise me during his 4 years in office if things are not going the way he plans he will step down and let Pence take over. Just to make it perfectly clear I have no problem with how past President Ronald Reagan became President because he went through the system and had some political experience even though this was before my time. That is just my two cents on that matter.
    That I do not disagree with. My only point was that I don't fault Trump for changing his stance on some things. I actually find it refreshing considering I expected him to be steadfast in his foolishness.

    2 cents well spent. And if one could run for office regardless of their nation of birth they could have had a Schwarzenegger Potus awhile back. Like Regan he was Governor...and an "actor".. that's a change they might want to explore...but they also pondered reforms in whom they allow to run for fear of a "foreigner" like a Canadian born politico running their 'merika.
    I trump your 2 cents and raise it a pence. ;)

    I know politicians often fail on their promises, but this is one case where I don't see it as a bad thing. To be sure - I am not a Trump supporter or fan and would have voted HC if I was American (though Bernie would have been my first choice). But Trump was not a politician before this. To be able to go into this with some ideas and change his mind as he learns and gets new information - I actually find that commendable.

All i was sayin was he isnt as fake as most and he is that obtuse...but his heart is in the right place to get ppl off their asses and govt handouts...etc. the fence yeah its already there...but that doesn't make good tv...hahhhahaha. im waiting for his wall for canada...and nafta...then the real crap begins for us. Til now canadians shouldnt be this invested in american politics when the youth cant even name the ten provinces and 3 territories let alone their capitals. Moreover our country could be facing a similar upheaval if the left continues to bend for special interest groups and foreigners that after many yrs here aren't the least bit interested in becoming canadian. Watch if the right pulls the same rhetoric in the upcoming nomination meetings in march...lol mexico could be the "odd man out" if both can and usa have righties as leaders. Thats why were in englad pushing a CAN-EU trade agreement...they see the writing on the wall.

    I don't think he will get the chance to do many of the things he wanted to do. He has alienated all of the Democratic Party in the House and Senate against him and also many of his own party is against him and his policy. The only way he gets his agenda through or at least most of it is through Executive Order and I hope that is not the case because that is a power a President should not over step. Just look at the stink President Obama got for using it.

    Well it hasn't taking just a little more than a week since Trump has been elected to be the next President of the United States and he has already altered his stance on two of his major issues on his campaign. First after meeting with President Obama he went onto say that now he will not immediately repeal all of the Obamacare, but instead keep some of it and come up with a better plan to go along with the existing plan. Kinda sounds likes Hillary's plan. Than just the day after that he stated that his all mighty Wall which was once going to be built as high as it needed to be to keep all Mexicans out will now partially be a fence. Isn't a fence what is in place already? Not to totally bash all over Donald Trump, but don't every candidate do this same damn thing. They spout off their mouth during the Primaries and Debates about these great plans they have and once they have all the ir supporters in a frenzy and get nominated they back down on the majority of their major issues for the most part and mostly nothing gets done they said they were going to do.
