Compassion



"I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you've thrown our budget a little out of whack..."

As if three back to back destructive hurricanes were the fault of Puerto Rico.

"a real catastrophe like Katrina..."


So, what, devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Maria, and Irma, were fake?

What does a person whose home was flattened, destroyed, do with paper towels? Is it a bad joke, "hey, peeps, use these to mop up flood waters?"

Would not have been so disrespectful if he'd thrown out rolls of toilet paper. Ditto, with the rice ~ where do people without power, without stoves cook it?

Respect


The president did not call these chicks bitches for disrespecting the flag, as he did a black woman (as in, "son of a...")

Better than angry name-calling, would be to address the grievances of citizens who silently protest by refusing to idolize a flag of a country that disrespects people due to skin color.

A black president attempting to address the issue of unwarranted excessive force by police officers is slammed as being anti-police, racist; so much better if a white president dealt with the issue.

But the white guy tried to use his office to influence firing of football players in violation of 18 U.S. Code § 227 simply for exercising their 1st Amendment right to peaceful protests. And, influence he did, such as NASCAR officials threatening race car drivers from similar actions and, if factual, millions boycotting football games.

Celebrity

A celebrity is some one who is well known. #45 is one of them ~ known for tabloid expose' articles concerning his marriages and infidelities; well-known for his television show; well-known for Trump towers. He lives in NYC, not Hollywood.

Many well-known people live all over the world. Actors or movie stars are actual celebrities whether they live in Hollywood or not, not "so called celebrities."

Howard Stern is also a celebrity that does not live in Hollywood. Likewise Susan Saradon; Whoopie Goldberg; endless list of celebrities that do not live in Hollywood.

He is wishing they'd blow shit up ~ not just thinking about it, wishing for it. A terrorist threat? Um...

Using the pledge as proof

Jeff Jones would do well to look up the history of the Pledge of Allegiance if he is going to offer it up as proof of his argument. The pledge did not exist in 1776 when the union was formed. It did not come around until the early 1900s and it was another few decades before a president made it official.

Fed Ex


As if Republicans never lie, never murder citizens of the world through illegal invasions of countries like Iraq?

Many, many people like Carol Weir who post hateful, angry comments, than they claim it is Democrats or Liberals that are the hateful ones. Sad, sad world.

Christopher Duganberry


Again, Madonna never made a terrorist threat against the President.  A threat is "I am going to bomb the White House." I wonder how Christopher Duganberry imagines Madonna could carry out such a threat if she had actually made it. Does she have access to bombs? To fighter jets? Christopher should be more concerned about China dropping an A-bomb somewhere in the United states. That is a real threat.

A "mentally person?" Okay, I make typos ~ a person as enraged as Christopher may have been typing so furiously he did not realize his error.

Most people who commented felt the man who attacked the Delta employee was probably drunk.

Many ridiculed Christopher for thinking anyone would be willing to go to jail after getting paid to attack the employee. Sad, sad world.

Celebrities


Brittney King is not the only one who does not approve of celebrities voicing opposition to their man. It seems to escape their notice that they just elected a celebrity to the office of president. We, the people, are not only forced to know what he thinks or his opinions, we are forced to live with the results of his actions.

She (and others who commented on the articles) did not mention a word about #45 asking people to pray that a tv show's ratings would rise. Is it a traditional value for presidents to ask for that type of prayer at the White House prayer breakfast? Especially since the man is still connected to the show, as executive producer ~ which seems a serious ethic violation ~ using political office for personal gain.

Instead they jump all over Arnold ~ who. btw, has some political experience on his resume.

I thought it was bad when citizens elected another actor to be president ~ but at least Reagan, like Arnold got his feet wet in governing working his way up the political ladder.

Many credit Reagan as being a great president. I do not ~ his trickle down economics was a proven failure. Fear under the new guy things will even be worse. At least Reagan did not fill the White House with White Nationalist &  billionaires. Nor did Reagan allow those corporate guys to change laws in order to benefit, not the people, but only themselves.

Much like the pres himself is doing.

C'est la vie.
