Can someone remind me what the first impeachment was for Trump?



Are you referring the one that resulted in an acquittal?



She seems to be bored today and can’t get over Trump. Maybe regretting her vote for Biden just about now.

There we’re 3 names on the ballot. And, no I don’t regret my vote.
Trumps policies benefit me more then Biden’s do Chat Icon

Yes, I am bored tonight. Thank you for asking



I’m bored, too! Haha
Honest, non-snarky question. If his policies benefited you more than Biden’s why vote for Biden? And FTR, before anyone attacks my “privilege” I voted for Trump not because I liked the guy but because I thought he actually had better policies for our
County as a whole.

Or It could’ve been Trump!s attempt to dismantle NATO which would’ve been a lot easier and cheaper for Putin and more successful than his attempts in 2014. You ever question Paul Manafort‘s role in Trump’s administration? Maybe that’s another reason why Putin didn’t have to invade Ukraine why Trump was visiting president.



Nope. Trump was never a pawn-I don’t think his ego would allow him to be one. Putin just knew he had to bide his time.

Explain Paul Manafort for me?

Or why Trump tried to dismantle NATO And then praises Putin for his invasion of Ukraine?



They cannot explain it because admitting that Trump was (and is) Putin's little lapdog goes against the entire narrative of BS that Fox News has been feeding them for years.

It is horrible.

I think it's quiet though as a lot of kids are off this week and people are traveling or trying to balance working and entertaining lol.



130 views right now, that’s why I mentioned it. All the people who were so gung-ho for Biden are pretty quiet.



Should he call Putin's a genius? Or call the move savvy? Or state that the US should take the same tack on the southern board and invade Mexico?

What do you think that Biden or NATO should do differently? Or could have done differrently?
Do you think this that has happened with Russia, happened over the last 13 months?





Do you feel the sanctions were enough? Wait a month?



Why don't you answer my questions instead of deflecting by asking a question.



If you DONT.CARE at this moment when this was very wishy washy, just like normal with this administration.

I think the sanctions should be done NOW, not say in a month as these poor Ukranians don't have a month.


I do think that if Trump had won the office in 2020, we would not be seeing this play out in 2022 but that is only because Trump is a pawn and Putin uses him like a puppet so it would have been a delayed invasion in 2025 or 2026.



Lol this cracks me up. If Trump WASN’T elected this would have played out years ago. Putin resisted BECAUSE Trump is/was so unpredictable. He’s not my favorite person but it’s not a bad quality to have when negotiating foreign policy. This was most likely inevitable but Biden’s catatonic state didn’t make Putin miss a wink of sleep.



Exactly. This administrations WEAK ASF leadership absolutely made it easier for Putin. Hate Trump all you want but his policies and administration were 1000x more capable then what we have now. Stop deluding yourself and trying to twist yourselves into pretzels to believe otherwise.

I say hold on folks because the next 3 years are going to be a very bumpy ride. We are only 1 year in and we have record high inflation which BTW negatively affects mostly the middle and lower class, disastrous foreign interventions (Afghanistan...now Russia/Ukraine), open borders during a pandemic and a President and VP who can hardly string together a coherent sentence much less be respected or feared for their "leadership". The mean tweets however are gone so Yay!.

Our southern borders are not open. In fact Biden has kept trumps policies at the southern border. Afghanistan was Trump and his peace treaty with the Taliban and then letting 5000 prisoners in Pakistan go. Trump just praise Putin on his invasion of Ukraine and you think he had strong foreign-policy with Putin?
I have my own theories on inflation because we have corporate profits breaking records while they increase prices and claim it’s inflation. If they’re experience that much of a constriction with pricing their margins would contract not expand. And I think Biden‘s administration is failing in addressing that with the lack of antitrust policy and price manipulation. I don’t think the Biden ministration is doing a stellar job but they’re doing a hell of a lot better than Trump did and would have ever done



LMAO are you even half awake right now?? Do you drugs??? Have you bothered to follow the ACTUAL news??? Our borders are WIDE open have been for a minute...people are just doing the Cupid shuffle into the US celebrating because they know we are weak ASF.....numbers don't lie.

Inflation is at a CRAZY high because of this administration's policies.POINT BLANK PERIOD...delude yourself all you want but reality is reality!


JESUS the amount of people in this country that are mentally unstable is really scary....like really especially because they are loud and actually believe their own BS.

Thankfully the poll numbers show that MOST Americans are awake to the BS happening right now and realize that this Administration is at best a joke. A horrible joke. God help us!

I think I di read and watch a wide variety of news and news sources but I would be open to adding your sources.
Can you share what news you are reading/watching on a daily basis? I would be interested in reading what you are reading.

She doesn’t like strong men who stand up for themselves. It’s obvious she pushes her husband around and can’t stand Trump because he doesn’t take shit and wouldn’t take hers like her family does (not friends though as she has lost many).

Re: Quiet today with Turmoil happening in this World

Some women have such an unhealthy and backwards idea of what makes a strong man. Treating women like sexual objects, being a misogynistic pig and talking about women as if they are "less than" doesn't make a man strong, it makes him weak and disgusting.

It's so odd that anyone would hold a "man" like Trump in such high regard, I guess the women who do must think very little of themselves. Personally, I expect way more for myself.

But, back to the Ukraine "discussion" and the same two blaming Biden for issues that long precede him.

How insightful. I'm sure we all would love a strong man like Trump as a spouse...,one that will cheat on us - a child rapist and father that shares openly his sexual desire for our daughter. - brags of assaulting women...really a man we can all dream of being with some day. Chat Icon

The fact that anyone defends Biden/Kamala is so hilarious. That old senile fool and his lackey would have never been in office if it weren’t for the fact that people had a hard on for getting Trump out because they didn’t like him. So whatever happens under his control you voters have on his side asked for it.

Quiet today with Turmoil happening in this World

I really dislike when people start comparing past presidents. No president was great but this is falling on us (as well as the multitude of other issues) during the Biden administration. He and his democrats are in charge so it falls on them, end of story. I don't care what happened 4 years ago or 20 years ago. This is now and he needs to manage the situation.

In all honesty I would have voted for Biden when Trump won if he ran. He is too old now and has lost his spark and control he had years ago. Biden was the wrong choice but since half the country was so hell bent on getting Trump out of office that we allowed someone not fit for the job take the reigns. People need to wake up and we need to start getting candidates that can do the job at hand and stop voting for people, just because they are not someone else.

I really agree with this. IMO, Trump nor Biden had any business being president. They both ran on platforms that were pretty much just "I'm better than so and so." It's very disheartening what we have seen in this country over the last few decades. We can blame Clinton, or Bush, Obama, Trump, or Biden. But at the end of the day, it took so much more than one administration to get us in the hole we are in today. And we aren't going to get anywhere with the candidates they keep pushing through. I am a liberal Democrat but I also can, and do, see the positives in some Republican policies.
I truly believe we need to do away with the two party system. We've improved ok everything else since 1776, this we just can't seem to get past.
I will not blame Trump for this- he is no longer president and playing the blame game accomplishes nothing.
I will forever despise Trump for the vile way he treats other human beings and his narcissistic obsession with power. But again, I can see the benefits to some of his policies. It seems like so many, on here and IRL, are so vile towards people of the opposite party that they never even try to see the other side. Good and bad exist in all parties, all administrations, and all presidents. As far as the US being the laughing stock of the world- that's not Biden. That's not even Trump. I'm pretty sure our downfall started with Bush Sr. It takes decades to get here. Anyone who thinks Trump or Biden were singlehandedly able to destroy this country's reputation all by themselves is completely fooling themselves.

People need to wake up and we need to start getting candidates that can do the job at hand and stop voting for people, just because they are not someone else.



I really agree with this. IMO, Trump nor Biden had any business being president. They both ran on platforms that were pretty much just "I'm better than so and so." It's very disheartening what we have seen in this country over the last few decades. We can blame Clinton, or Bush, Obama, Trump, or Biden. But at the end of the day, it took so much more than one administration to get us in the hole we are in today. And we aren't going to get anywhere with the candidates they keep pushing through. I am a liberal Democrat but I also can, and do, see the positives in some Republican policies.
I truly believe we need to do away with the two party system. We've improved ok everything else since 1776, this we just can't seem to get past.
I will not blame Trump for this- he is no longer president and playing the blame game accomplishes nothing.
I will forever despise Trump for the vile way he treats other human beings and his narcissistic obsession with power. But again, I can see the benefits to some of his policies. It seems like so many, on here and IRL, are so vile towards people of the opposite party that they never even try to see the other side. Good and bad exist in all parties, all administrations, and all presidents. As far as the US being the laughing stock of the world- that's not Biden. That's not even Trump. I'm pretty sure our downfall started with Bush Sr. It takes decades to get here. Anyone who thinks Trump or Biden were singlehandedly able to destroy this country's reputation all by themselves is completely fooling themselves.



I agree with you.

I've always been more moderate and never even affiliated myself with a particular party until Trump. I do tend to lean more liberal with my views of the world than I do conservative but I can appreciate that there are worthwhile policies on both sides of the aisle.

I voted for Biden primarily out of concern for our democracy, there is no question that Trump was (and is) an unlawful, treasonous, lying POS. Whether I agree with everything Biden is doing or not, I at least rest easy knowing that he isn't trying to dismantle this country and the laws that guide us.

I cannot understand why we don't have better candidates stepping up. We need an infusion of youth into our political system, old white men aren't the answer. That is what I loved about Obama when he ran, if nothing else he was young and I felt could lead us in a more progressive direction. I cannot believe that in 2022 we're even entertaining the idea of our next president being either an old dude on his way out OR a twice impeached, treasonous joke. THAT is what makes this country a laughing stock, we NEED to do better than that. Neither one of them should even be considered, especially Trump.
