    Also, I remember a president or 3 who was fucking shot. Would think those guys were treated just a bit more unfairly than our orange toddler in chief.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller. Shit gonna get real.

    Also, Kevin McCarthy on record saying "I think Putin pays" in regards to Trump. Paul Ryan told everyone to keep their mouths shut.

    This isn't about partisanship any longer; it's about whether one is able to look past one's political leanings and see that this is a shitshow dumpster fire. Once our representatives wake up and start making our country their priority over the welfare of the Republican Party, then hopefully we can mitigate the damage.
    What exactly has he done to the country? With the exception of gutting the EPA, I'm pretty much on board with most of his agenda.

    Am I missing ways in which your life is now worse because of President The Donald?

    President Trump

    Now, on a personality level I think he's kind of a douche, and I don't agree with how he goes about some things, but I still like most of his goals.

    Anyone who voted for this fucking turd really needs to do the country a favor and sit the next couple of elections out. You're hurting your country.

    As an economically secure white cisgender male, I'm pretty sure the composition of the Supreme Court matters more in my life than whoever happens to be president. That's without even considering my chosen profession.

    He's probably made intelligence gathering more difficult since some countries most likely won't wanna share info with us now.

    Having his DOJ tell prosecutors to support max penalties for drug charges. Appointing Jeff Sessions in general, really.

    ETA: My life doesn't have to be worse off for me to think he's harmed the country.

    My closest friend for 50 years is a retired career Navy man, was a navigator on nuclear subs from ~1979 -~1999. For you kids, a lot of that was during the Cold War, and he spent a lot of time chasing and being chased by Soviet Subs. They would sneak into Russian ports and park the sub on the seafloor for weeks in silent mode just to see if they could get away with it. They had nuclear warheads on board, so had they been discovered, it wouldn't have ended well.

    Last year during the campaign, during the Hillary email fiasco, my friend (big Trump supporter) couldn't get over the unconscionable breach of security Hillary allegedly committed. He was raging that American servicemen and women's lives were put at risk because perhaps some emails weren't on a secure server.

    Yet, now, with Trump and Russia and a hackable Mara-lago wifi etc etc etc etc etc, I asked my friend if Trump's irresponsible actions made him feel as threatened and worried about his fellow service men and women as the Hillary email scandal did. His reply is that he really doesn't think Trump has compromised America's security or intelligence.

    To me, that is a textbook case of cognitive dissonance. He is simply unable to accept that he may have made an error in analysis or judgment, and to admit as such would be at too great of a cognitive cost, so his brain has perform almost miraculous feats of psychological gymnastic to convince himself that Hillary put the US in harm's way, yet Trump hasn't.

    I completely understand if he holds true to the "traditional Republican narrative", its goals and policies. There are many Republican ideals that I am totally on board with. But to embrace Trump as the mouthpiece of those ideals is something I literally cannot comprehend. I absolutely can't understand how even the most staunch Republican can defend anything Trump has said or done.

    My own theory is for a Republican to do so would 1. be an admission that he/she was wrong, which is difficult for anyone about anything, 2. it would imply that they support/endorse Hillary and/or other Dems (which is patently false, or 3. that they think he will right the ship and it will be ok in the end.

    I was raised a Republican and have since become more moderate. I don't like Trump and I don't like Hillary, and I basically had no good option in this election (see my original post in this thread)..."my" party disappoints me so often I don't consider myself "republican" anymore...I guess that makes sense, cause I don't fit into your 3 piece puzzle for pubs...I'm certainly not a democrat though

    Does he know that Trump orders his steak well-done and eats it with ketchup?

    I can't imagine how the make up of the Supreme Court would affect you in any real way. What exactly effect do you think a liberal court would have on you personally? Maybe make it harder for you to get a gun?

    I gave it some serious thought, and I really can't think of how the Supreme Court would be likely to affect me personally, other than making convoluted laws that are difficult to apply. The point wasn't that the Supreme Court has a huge impact on me personally. Rather, the President has very little impact on me personally.

    The Supreme Court doesn't make laws.
