That’s because everything that he did was actually Hillary’s fault.

Just think if Hillary smiled more, we wouldn’t have a Nazi as president

Obama choosing civility over actually fighting to get his judge on the Court means the Muslim Ban is legal!

So we put immigrants in camps and now the Muslim band is being upheld. Just keep on moving backwards, America, keep on going against virtually everything this country's supposed to stand for .

Hopefully we can get a good president in 2020 who can get rid of that stupid ban.

Congrats!!

Funny enough my condo flooded too, years ago, forcing me to move in with my then-boyfriend, now-husband so it worked out great.

This is a reason why I don't think we ever return to a normal functioning politics/government.

The GOP doesn't give a fuck. They will break norms, rules, and all decency to get their way.

The Dems still act like the GOP will wake up and govern like a normal group of people.

If the Dems ever get back into power you have to expect that they'll return the favor.

I don't think the Dems will. One, they may never get back into power because they've allowed the GOP to gerrymander and voter suppress their way to an almost unstoppable majority. Two, the Dems clearly still think we live in Sorkin fantasy land with how they've acted appalled about Sarah Sanders having to order take out. Even the supposed "left" wing of those in power is Bernie Sanders, who won't come out against ICE. We're fucking fucked.

one of my favourite youtube channels actually just yesterday released a pretty interesting video about "rules in politics" describing exactly what you're both talking about, it's very timely to this discussion:

And hey, it's also okay for those bullshit "pregnancy crisis centers" (staffed with people without actual medical qualifications, no less) to flat-out lie to women about their options, so thanks Supreme Court!

Fuck Trump and the GOP. Burn it all down.

And i think i said a few pages ago, it’s only gonna get worse.

Military will get involved
Any incidents will be treated as act of war against United States

We now ban Muslims from entering, unless you’re a Saudi.

Probably not far fetched to believe Muslims will be next to be deported.

60% of Republican voters are perfectly OK with putting children in cages, so kicking more brown people out won’t phase them.

Articles out today too about how we have done NOTHING to prepare for further hacking of elections from Russia (or any other nation). There’s reason to believe Russia will go even further this November.

and holy crap - have you been reading about the Trump murals and quotes in these children's detention centres, like "hard work makes you stronger" or something similar i read somewhere etc.

well, pretty reminiscent of "Arbeit macht frei" if you ask me!

this bastard is reading from the Hitler playbook

I heard he’s making the kids say the Pledge of Allegiance everyday. Reminds me of how the Native Americans were taken from their families and denied their heritage, language, etc.

They should all kneel the next time they're told to do so.

Isn't there anything we can do before November to try and put a stop to this madness? I just...there's got to be a light at the end of this nightmare tunnel coming at some point, doesn't there? I plan to vote in November, no question, but I can't even be guaranteed at this point that will help or change anything, either.

I just feel so damn helpless.

I remember a sillier time when I could post a tweet like this and say LOL.

No more.

Now I post them and say FOR FUCK'S SAKE.

I give you this, from 2015:
