I'd have thought he would lose what support he had with his crazy insistence on getting his own way with the wall and threatening to overrule Congress. But no; diehard supporters will excuse anything he says or does, until the day he invokes Order 66!

Maybe they elected him to build a wall, so they support him upholding his promise to build a wall.
Hardly the first time government has been shut down to get what president wants.

Seems an awful waste of money that could be put to better use.

Not the first time, indeed, but when last did a C in C threaten to bypass Congress and invoke a state of emergency? Not likely to happen in peacetime, but still not the right way to do things.

And actually, if you really look at it, I would say that it is the liberal who continues to display traits that toddlers grow out of. Conservatives don't get triggered by every little thing that's said.


are you sure?
you sound severely triggered.
actually no, you're right. they only get triggered by extremely important things, for example, college students dancing on rooftops.


Uh...what the hell are you even talking about?

I don’t think it’s a waste. The navy wasted 30 billion on ships they immediately stopped using.
5 billion isn’t alot for governments.

Obama threaten and did bypass congress all the time

It was pointed out before that Trump is an alpha male.

So it makes sense Trump attracts people who appreciate "ALPHA MALE" qualities, like "Might makes right".

:lol: How's kindergarten going?

I guess it takes a lot of integrity to flip-flop on culpability for closing the entire government. This is the most self-entitled piece of narcissistic nonsense I've seen in recent memory.

As a Canadian (but mostly as a Quebecker), I found out that those who side with Trump are easier to reason with.

I find it hard to discuss with the other side of the political coin.

I am open-minded, but when any and every opinions point toward an unique course of action, I can't help it but to find the whole movement suspect. And this it about BOTH Trump supporters, and those who are against Trump.

Then congratulations on closing your mind to half the equation.

EXACTLY!! This is one of the reasons why I've often said that college degrees don't make someone smart, it only makes them learned.


Snarking on the necessity of education is pretty classless, mind you I'm a self-trained hacker & software engineer who dropped out of high school with a GED & I still think higher education is more important than this.

People make themselves smart, or they don't. By the way, Trump founded a fraudulent "university" that was illegal under NY state law.

Dude have any of you ever realized that tunnels can go directly under walls?

I wouldn't exactly call that "racism". Maybe xenophobia? Like countries disliking other countries even when they pretty much have the same races of people? Or maybe there's a better word for it...

But yeah I get it, some people really dislike Americans and think we're all the same. I find that sad because I personally don't feel that way about other countries. :(
