this is true. they are refusing to examine their failures. But! Though it's not been proven it's looking pretty likely that Russia has been trying to get Trump in for a long time. There's the hacking thing, but there's also his longstanding relationships with shady Russians, and a few of his cabinet picks are super cozy with Russia/Putin. The law firm his lawyer works for just won Russia's Law Firm of the Year award ffs! Also, he hired hookers to watch them pee on a bed there. You only do that where you're most comfortable.

You haven't taken one single honest look at your president elect have you?

As a woman, I'm waiting for Oregoropa's 10 levels of sexism so that I can use it in the corporate world next time I think something is sexist. God knows a man would know better.

I just saw clips from that press conference of Trump's on TV earlier. Lord almighty, that was embarrassing. How the hell are people still defending this asshole?

On the note of sexism, when I was watching Obama speak about his wife last night, all I kept thinking (alongside "Awww") was, "See, Trump? This is what showing genuine respect towards a woman looks like."

Do you miss the good old days when the press just fainted in the presence of POTUS? This guy is an embarrassment to journalists everywhere.

Yeah, Oregoropa, that's totally comparable to Trump ranting at everyone in sight and calling people names. ????

The press did like Obama when he took office, yes. Know why? 'Cause Obama didn't act like an asshole to people.

And nothing in that clip negates my point that Trump's a jerk and anyone who voted for him should be flat out embarrassed by his behavior. You elected a creep to office. Own up to it already.

Yeah I voted for him, and I would do it again. He's a bull in a China Shop, and the China Shop is our government which has descended into a cronyist morass over the past 20 years. 15 trillion in debt since 2000. It's time to break some china (no pun intended). I didn't watch the whole press conference, but I thoroughly enjoyed the parts that I did. The press has a lower trustworthy rating among the Public than the congressional favorability rating of ~15%.

CNN has truly become a joke. Proven collusion with the DNC against Bernie and Trump. If you say that is BS, then why was DWS forced to resign? That is not journalistic integrity of holding Truth to Power.

We have had 8 years of Obama bashing Fox News. Trump calls CNN 'fake news' and suddenly everybody is panicked that the 1st Amendment is on the chopping block.

Everybody take a deep breath.

I also love how the right is laughing at CNN as if the left likes them.

I blame CNN largely for where we are today. It's their 20 years of "presenting both sides" and "both sides do it" false equivocating and their running of Trump's events, speeches, interviews 24/7 for the last year that contributed to him getting elected. Appalling behaviour driven by ratings/money.

So they can go fuck right off along with the revolting Trump.

What Trump policies do you feel are going to address the issues you're concerned about?

I'm convinced Don Lemon is double agent working for Trump. Making a fool of himself non-stop in the past two weeks thus discrediting CNN further. Getting absolutely bombed on-air NYE in New Orleans (if you haven't seen the video its worth checking out) and seeming to run interference on serious outrage of the Chicago kidnappers-torturers of the mentally-challenged guy.

Okaaaaaay, Kelly-A.

Do we not not remember the phrase(s)

1- Words have meaning.
2- Words have consequences.

So either, stfu Kelly, or have the President-Elect send a
team to go into the future grab Mr Spock, or Deanna Troy and have them tell us what's "in his heart.

Irvine glad you and your guy had a lovely Mediterranean vacation! (Slow reply, no WiFi at home)

Trump will add $5.3 trillion to the debt.

And if you're waiting for certainty about climate change you might want to check out research done by Exxon. They, BP, and 97 percent of climate scientists know what what's happening. As does everyone else who isn't si arrogant they think they know more about a topic than the most brilliant climate scientists is the world. We've known the heating effects of GHGs si CE the 1800s.
