I wish we had a Nordstroms in my town. There are some elsewhere in Iowa, but it's a few hours' drive to get to them.

So our president wants to renegotiate START but has to ask his aids what START is?

This is a fucking joke. This is why you need some level of competence to hold office. Have some basic understanding of foreign policy, domestic policy, law, business, economics, sanity

Trump has displayed none of this. He's attacked all levels of government. He's attacked businesses, he's attacked human rights.

All in three weeks. The only silver lining I can see is that with the amount of lies they spew daily, it's brought a focus on the truth/facts that seemed to be hidden for a long time. People may be waking up out of their "feelings fog " and start to pay attention.

"The last time a resolution of inquiry was considered on the House Floor was in 1995, against then-president Clinton. It can be considered a first step in the process of attempting to impeach a federal official."

(The quote is from my 'Countable' app, where I heard about this. I went to Google to find a news article.)

Can I ask all of you something. If Trump was more even handed and acted more like a politician would you give him a fair shake? Or would you still be shaking your fists?

I ask because some of the folks I asked about Trump and their response was "We just want him to act more like a president." And then there were some that have said "Nothing he can do will make me change my mind."

I think the only palatable GOP candidate as President here would be John Kasich. But everybody would still be upset that Hillary lost.

I ask because some of the folks I asked about Trump and their response was "We just want him to act more like a president." And then there were some that have said "Nothing he can do will make me change my mind."
If he behaved like an actual mature human being with some legit understanding of how politics works, and wasn't letting idiots like Bannon or Kellyanne or Spicer help and speak for him, and wasn't supporting the appointments of people like Sessions or DeVos, and wasn't pulling this "alternative facts/fake news" nonsense? Then yeah, I probably wouldn't be as angry with the guy.

But as noted above, it's not JUST the fact he's acting horribly unprofessional. It's the fact that his political stances are shit, he's hired horrific and completely inexperienced people to work in our government, and he's got so many conflicts of interest and scandals following him it's not even funny. There's plenty of valid reason beyond "he doesn't act presidential enough" to be angry about the fact that he's our president. I think we've all made those reasons abundantly clear in every thread about him thus far.

And he made his true colors abundantly clear when his campaign started, and didn't once change course for the better. He had plenty of chances well before he got elected to grow up and act like a decent human being who would take this job seriously, and make people who were against him change their minds and see him as a worthy candidate, but he never did. So Trump supporters need to quit holding their breaths that we'll get behind him, because if we haven't by now, we're not ever going to.

Again, it is no longer about the fact that Hillary lost for us. We've long ago accepted that fact.

Also, yes, Kasich would've been tolerable, but I could've dealt with, say, Rubio or Jeb being president, too, if a GOP candidate had to win the election. At least with people like that we have an idea of what to expect from them. At least they have an actual understanding of how politics freaking works. I really do not get how that part of things is not bothering any of you Trump supporters even a bit. I truly don't.

I feel like it is a VERY slow transition from the November 9th mindset. It sucks to be on the other side.

No, because I'd still fundamentally disagree with his political stances. A lot of others consider this 'respectability' thing to be quite important though.

SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!

Does he mean the SC?! It was a unanimous decision which is very surprising, looks like the SC will be 4-4. The administration has completely botched this EO.

So how do you explain the Republican/conservative-leaning posters in this thread who refuse to support Trump, or the other Republicans/conservatives out there who can't stand him, either? Their party's on the winning side and yet they're still not happy.

I will repeat once more: Our issues with Trump have nothing to do with Hillary not winning/us being on "the other side" anymore.

Him being a complete embarrassment as a President is but one reason I "won't give him a chance". There is supposed to be a certain dignity to this office. He has shown time and time again he has no dignity. But really, that's probably the least of my concerns.

Most importantly he has surrounded himself with horrible advisors, including a white nationalist, a spokesperson who apparently is allergic to facts, an Attorney general who is an avowed racist and a press secretary who is laughably bad at his job. It's also painfully clear that his administration is incompetent. Their Executive Orders are poorly thought out and implemented, his first raid was botched, hell even the White House lawyers who defended his Muslim ban in front of the 9th circuit were bad.

Lastly, he has still not divested from his companies, and has refused to release tax records. WE DON'T KNOW what foreign dealings he has which to my mind is extremely dangerous.
