    Really?

    I mean....cmon.....really?

    the intelligence community didn't provoke him?

    Starting an investigation based on a dossier of information compiled by a partisan who is paid the opposition seems like kind of a dick move. Heads were gonna roll.

    And the intelligence community broke laws. They belong under the bus.

    And why do you say "under the bus" like it's a bad thing? Compare Andrew McCabe's gofundme page to Michael Flynn's. McCabe is an actual criminal, Flynn is just an accidental one.

    1. Goofy trade war with entire world.
    2. Fake treaty with NK.
    3. Separating kids from parents at border.
    4. Sucking on Putin's balls at presser.

    Four complete fuckups in last month or so. Looking forward to those Nov. midterms and record turnout of D voters, and the tweets about 'rigged' elections to follow.

    Honestly, the idea of a blue wave happening are kinda scary. Not because that isn't how I'll vote, but because how upsetting to the status quo that will be. So far Trump has been the teflon don. All his blunders are hand waved away-- he hasn't really suffered any concrete setbacks due to his actions. Losing congress, or losing in 2020 would be just that.

    How does he react to being rejected by the electorate? I suppose you're probably right-- blaming it on illegal immigrants illegally voting by the millions or something, but that's just talk. Would he actually do anything? Is there anything he could do? How does his base react? They're dispersed and predominantly rural/suburban, so large scale demonstrations are less likely, but maybe this would be the exception?

    Interesting times..

    It's the same way people make themselves believe in a religion or pick any conspiracy theory... flat earth, young earth, bigfoot... you start with a presupposition and then you reject everything that doesn't fit and make everything fit that supports it. I think it's a popular meme because the world is confusing and scary, and simple answers to complex problems are comforting.

    It looks like he got scolded by the majority of his base for the Putin meeting. So much so that for the first time I can remember I saw Trump walk back on something he said. Not that I think the would/won't thing convinced anyone. It was certainly completely immaterial to his idiot voter base. This was just to thwart an immediate move to impeachment by the looks of it. Tensions are definitely high. I would imagine that even people close to him would think it's pretty likely that Putin has kompromat on him.

    Wasn't one of the first things he did when he took office to lift russia sanctions, but then congress pulled the handbreaks... nothing he does makes much sense if you look at it from an economic standpoint - not even if you apply maximum wufanomics. It makes a hell of a lot more sense as seen from russia.

    I know everyone has seen it but it's worth noticing how spot on Clinton was in 2016.

    They're only handwaved away by the 33% who think he's infallible and people who are afraid to alienate his base (i.e., Republicans who aren't quitting or retiring). Pretty much everyone else recognizes his boobery for what it is. I don't know what "concrete" setbacks he could suffer short of impeachment, but he's hardly crushing the public opinion afaik.

    In the "watching a plane crash into a dump full of toxic waste" kind of way it's interesting.

    Some have argued, including that guy Johnston who wrote his autobiography, that Trump would react just like one would suspect he'd react - deny any personal responsibility and put on the tinfoil hat. The extent to which his base is willing to drink the Kool Aid for him is an interesting question and open to debate, but I think there's little doubt about how he'd react himself.

    I really do hope he doesn't try to foment some popular revolution or some shit.

    It's interesting though if you watch Fox's coverage you'd think he'd done a good job overall at that meeting and the MSM is waaay overreacting. My favourite is where they try to argue it actually is a good idea to let Russia help with the investigation into Russian meddling.

    I watched the Fox news youtube clips right after the meeting. I'd like to claim that I do it to diversify my news sources, but really I'm just there for the comedy - same reason I primarily watch cspan. The coverage was mostly critical of Trump. I'm not super informed about Fox's program, but I think you have the Hannity/Fox&friends/ and whoever the lady in the purple dress is, who are basically doing GOP propaganda, and then you have a couple slightly more critical shows. Of course they got a vicious beating by their fans. The top voted comment on one of the videos was that Fox calling the press conference a "bad performance" was the proof that Fox has been compromised by the deep state.

    So, I'm not as much worried about congress, I think even some of the more vocal Trumpians in congress will turn on Trump once the already obvious comes to light... but what I am worried about is post-Trump america outside of congress. You have people who believe Hannity, who has gone full Alex Jones - talking about the deep state. If Trump is either impeached or loses in 2020, idk how these people will react. When the infallible fails, it obviously cannot be fault of the infallible.

    OMG this is too good. Remember during the repub primaries when they had candidates sign some sort of pledge promising not to wig-out if they lost. They did that FOR Trump. They were afraid he'd sue, or run as an independent, or some other such nonsense. And even though he signed, there was much consternation about what he would actually do if/when he lost. Granted, Trump did plenty to fan that fire.

    BUT THEN HE STILL WON

    Oh, and then remember in the fall of 2016 when everyone was losing their mind wondering what kind of outrageous stunt Trump would pull when he lost to Hillary?

    BUT THEN HE STILL WON

    This is getting old now folks. Trying to defame Trump because of an IMAGINED potential tantrum isn't working. Try something else.

    How does his base react? They're dispersed and predominantly rural/suburban, so large scale demonstrations are less likely, but maybe this would be the exception?
    It's like you don't even remember election night......

    How did Hillary's base react? Did they all stand honorably in defeat? Were they all examples of decorum?

    You hopelessly misunderstand the Trump voter.

    This is the EXACT thinking and attitude that got Trump elected in the first place, and will result in a Dem loss in November.

    Keep it up.

    Well I didn't watch everything from Fox, but the one bit I did see and posted above was predictably tame with the criticism. I think there are one or two guys like Shep Smith who are pretty critical and like you say, get all kinds of death threats from people whose fingers are too fat to change the channel on the remote when he comes on.

    This is my fear as well - that instead of realizing what a conman he is and how much better off they are with him out of office, they'll instead go along with whatever fantasy conspiracy explanation he and his propaganda team at Fox come up with to explain his downfall. And if even a tiny minority of them go Unabomber on the "deep state" things could potentially get ugly.

    Interesting comment from that vid

    This is why he gets trashed on so much. You know this was a bad look. It's not even debatable. Now if you think people are going too far in their outrage, that's another story. But to try to use the "fake news" angle again in this situation is dumb. Trump and people who support him need to be willing to admit when he does something wrong. If every time he does something that isn't good, you deflect on libs, obama, hilary, or news stations people will never want to agree with you on anything. i can guarantee that no one responding to this will listen to a word i just said. instead they are going to post about one of the things i just mentioned instead of solutions to what just happened today. If you refuse to acknowledge a problem exists, a solution can never be found.

    Also from that vid

    You want to call out someone? Try Obama, or Bill and Hillary. Or the FBI.

    I don't understand. Is your position that he can't lose? Or that theorizing on what a blue wave would look like in regards to reactions of Trump and his base is for some reason off limits?

    We have seen him take small loses, and he and his base blame the media, Obama, Clinton, the deep state, etc, and/or spin it into an intended outcome that really is a victory. It's an interesting trait to extrapolate to a bigger loss.

    It's my confident prediction that he won't lose.

    As to theorizing on his potential reaction to a loss.....what's the point? Is it *REALLY* a source of worry? Or are folks just tossing this idea around as a way to make him looking foolish, childish, and unstable? Seems to me that they really *want* to make those accusations about Trump, but can't point anything he's actually done to support those claims. So now we're "theorizing".....what the hell for?

    If the "theorizing" is solely a propaganda tactic to diminish Trump, then it's lame. It's also completely played out and tired.

    Or if you're truly worried about nationwide chaos, you should take off the foil hat and calm down. It wont' be nearly as bad as it was when Hillary lost.

    So remember a few weeks ago when Dems were running around with their hair on fire demanding that candidates endorse a policy for the abolition of I.C.E.

    Remember that?

    I almost forgot about it. Today I learned why. Apparently the republicans in congress decided to propose a legislative resolution in support of the agency. In other words, it was just a formal congressional act saying "We like I.C.E."

    The basically dared democrats to go on record denouncing a completely functional, lawful agency that's just doing its job.

    Guess how many dems seized this opportunity to show their constituents how strongly committed they are to the plight of illegal immigrants by voting "no" on the resolution?

    And guess how many said "naaaah, I'll sit this out".

    LOL
