The KKK vote is what put Trump in the White House, all 50 of them

Trump is going to appoint a special presecutor Giuliani to put Hillary in prison.


Oh, that was also a scam to get elected?

Has it not dawned on so many of you that are writhing in agony that it is indeed the left that is intolerant of diversity of opinion and lifestyle. Might be a great time to check yourselves. I don't recall seeing throngs of protesters suggesting violence and inciting unrest when Obama was elected in spite of so many that were aghast at his election.  It seems that hatred runs deep in the hearts and minds of Liberals. Don't be so quick to cast stones...a look at our own reflection might render us all a valuable lesson.

@breckenridge @4williec Protesting does not include threats of violence...last time I checked, threatening the life of a president or president elect was a felony.

@4williec .....interesting that the GOP is viewed as the "all white"party with its lack of diversity, persistent ignoring of black issues and the marginalization of the black vote....

@HDB0329 @4williec That is interesting when indeed it is the Democrats that are run by big corporations, huge white donors like Soros and who pander and promise to the black and hispanic communities only to maintain power while doing nothing to further their standard of living...

@HDB0329 @4williec It's not actually all white, just made up in some minds that they are "all white". The plane the plane.....Welcome to fantasy island...

@InTheMiddle2 @HDB0329 @4williec Oh and when did it become a bad thing to be white...anymore that a bad thing to be black...or brown or yellow....ah yes, the open mind....a terrible thing.

@4williec Liberals just don't understand why or how anyone could have a difference of opinion from theirs, after all they are the " Elite " with all sorts of " Degrees " ( even though more college grads in Georgia voted for Trump than Hillary )

The right to protest is more American than mom and apple pie combined. Anyone that doesn't like it can get the hell out of America.

Where: Washington Square Park

When: Friday November 11, 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

NYU student Sydney Miller launched a Facebook event encouraging New Yorkers discouraged by the election results to come together in the park to rally in support of Muslims, minority groups, women, and others who may have been negatively impacted by Trump's campaign rhetoric. As of Wednesday afternoon, over 1,500 people have RSVP'd. 

"Let Muslims, women, those who have disabilities, latinx people, and everyone else Donald Trump has put down to get this far know that this country doesn't hate them," reads the event description. "#LoveStillTrumpsHate."

@breckenridge Can't we just give them puppies and snow cones and cotton candy and let them watch cartoons?

The thing about big beautiful walls is you have to spend a lot of money to maintain and protect them. I mean bigly.

Some Democrats out there have to be licking their chops


Trump will be very unpopular when he takes office. And his policies dont line up with most Americans views.


Going to be a big backlash in 4 years and some Democrat is going to ride that wave.

You mean dems will make it a priority to ensure Trump is a one-term president???

Say it ain't so!

Lol

@Hedley_Lammar If you bothered to look more closely with an eye on understanding versus adversity you might find that many of Trump's endeavors for this country are much the same as what Democrats have espoused but have failed to achieve...his methods may be different but he is more of an action guy than just a talker like politicians on both sides of the isle have tended to be...give the man a chance.

@Hedley_Lammar now that a twist I have not heard before, Trump is unpopular and that's why he got elected, makes perfect sense

 Thursday,November 10 - Louisvillians will be holding a protest downtown Thursday night to express their frustrations over Donald Trump's selection as the next president of the United States.

The event had been shared with more than 6,600 people, as of Thursday morning, and more than 500 people have indicated they are going while 1,700 have said they were interested.

"Show out for justice. We are against Donald Trump. We are against oppression. We are against racism, misogyny, transphobia, and xenophobia. We will not allow these things to take over our realities! Invite your friends! Bring your signs, your megaphones, your spirits. Let's go!" the event description says.

To protest is more American than mom and apple pie combined.

@breckenridge But they aren't protesting against Trump. They are protesting against citizens exercising their right to vote.

@breckenridge @InTheMiddle2 Stupid. We're stuck with Trump.  Let's demonstrate to reform the electoral system so we're not stuck with such bad choices again.

@Starik The Clintons would not like that, they bet on the electoral system putting them back in the White House

td is a liar and a welcher


@td1234 


Actually, son:

1. To the extent I end up losing the bet to you, my $50 would be payable to some right to life charity you earmarked, and not to @elgrunir 

2. The bet specifically included both McCain and Romney.  If it had been limited to just Romney, you would have won.  But your inclusion of McCain means that, as of this writing, you're the loser.

@Eye wonder @td1234 @elgrunir Wrong. I clarified the exact terms and you accepted them and you lost.


I also took Bruno's advice and decided to give you an option of paying GA right to life or EL. 


Now you can either pay up or not. Your choice.

Does integrity-free td always try to weasel out of paying his debts?


I said and will stick with the that (mangled English) Trump will receive more black support and Hispanic support than Romeny (sic) or McCain did. ~td, 10/26/16


Pay up, weasel...

I actually changed this months ago but could never get it to 'stick.'  I found it strangely ironic that this particular symbol I chose suddenly came into being the very day after America elected its first fuhrer.

Donald Trump doesn't deserve an 'open mind' or 'cooperation'. 

He deserves a board in the face. 

He should be shut down. Mired in obstruction.

From the word go.
