    The result of a self absorbed orange abomination perched in our oval office in an apparent paranoid state facing impending impeachment and the righteous hand of justice to finally be laid upon his wretched being: A rapidly shrinking republican party can’t possibly be a surprise to anyone who follows the constant alarming press reports depicting a catastrophic white house of ultra-corruption, chaos, insanity, clown shows and nightmarish ineptitude: Even former republicans we must assume, are not too thrilled with Bozo Trump’s / republican’s assault on their children’s healthcare while unconscionably giving Wall Street CEOs trillions in corporate welfare tax cuts only to be shipped to foreign lands, or degrading our law enforcement, or, his recklessly insane economic assaults on former allies such as Canada and Mexico who not so long ago, were our staunch allies, and most republicans can’t possibly be in favor of his constant disregard for our constitution and laws, his deficit explosion and his despicable televised public admiration and sucking up to our greatest enemies like Vladimir Putin:

      "How can we explain what looks to be a long-term decline for the Republican brand? Age, for one thing. From the beginning of the Trump administration the oldest Americans, those aged 50 and over, have consistently given Trump his highest approval ratings while young people aged 18–29 have consistently given him his lowest approval ratings. The chart below by David A. Hopkins of Boston College illustrates this reality. The generation gap keeps showing up in American elections. In the two big governors’ races in 2017, Virginia and New Jersey, younger voters chose Democrats by large margins and older voters went for the Republicans. In 2016, Primaries Project exit polling showed that 15.2 percent of Democratic voters participating in competitive primaries were aged 18–29, compared to just 8.3 percent of Republican voters."

    Our President:

    "A self absorbed orange abomination perched in our oval office in an apparent paranoid state facing impending impeachment and the righteous hand of justice to finally be laid upon his wretched being."

    Our government:

    "I. A catastrophic white house of ultra-corruption, chaos, insanity, clown shows and nightmarish ineptitude, including:

        A. Assaulting CHILDRENS' healthcare.

        B. Unconscionably giving Wall Street CEOs trillions in corporate WELFARE tax cuts ... (only to be shipped to foreign lands.)

        C. Degrading our law enforcement.

        D. Recklessly insane economic assaults on our FORMER allies, such as Canada and Mexico.

        E. DISREGARD for The US Constitution and its laws.

        F. Deficit EXPLOSION.

       G. Despicable televised public ADMIRATION

      Maybe it sounds 'yucky' because Bozo Trump is beyond yucky, he's gross: Everyone makes mistakes, but I don't post lies Kathryn and even the last remaining Trump cultees understand what I've posted is fact based, they're just programmed to stick their heads in the sand while Bozo Trump sabotages our healthcare and simply pretend the truth doesn't exist, but with Trump's approval ratings sinking fast, it indicates perhaps even some of them are now beginning to come around to see the light of righteousness, to get back on the good side of history:

      If I have the time, I'll address each of your inaccuracies and or false claims so here's the first: Here's an example of Bozo Trump cowering to our arch enemy Vladimir Putin, a despicable act of weakness which many experts consider a treasonous act:

      If the republican congress of cowards were not complicit, derelict of duty and or perhaps compromised themselves by Vladimir Putin, Trump would have probably been tossed into prison long ago, and here's just another example of why many say he should be indicted, tried and if found guilty, imprisoned immediately thereafter:

    What do republicans expect when their sick cowardly standard bearer who lost the popular vote disgraces himself, his collapsing party and country by uttering abominable comments like this? What else would republicans expect but a collapse when they constantly sabotage our healthcare system while giving trillions of our wealth to the richest among us in the form of a despicable corporate welfare tax cut scheme while millions of American still have no health insurance or are trying to survive and in some cases dying in the cold streets? Just imagine that for a moment: How corrupt, unholy and evil can soulless republican individuals possibly be?

And after Tuesday's unusual "jungle" primary, the GOP may not have a shot at the governor's mansion and a U.S. Senate seat — something experts say should be a dire warning for the party nationwide." … de-n879286

        More bad news for Trump and the rapidly shrinking republican party but it can't really be a surprise considering we have an unhinged, misogynist, racist, narcissistic cesspool dweller named Donald perched in our oval office:

        "Is Trump Driving Women Away From the GOP for Good?"

        "Female voters have slowly drifted away from the Republican Party for decades. Under Donald Trump, that trend has accelerated."

        "President Donald Trump has historically low favorability among women, with the Pew Research Center now reporting that 63 percent of women disapprove of how he is doing his job—compared with 30 percent who approve. That might not be surprising, given the range of things that Trump has said and done that might be seen as offensive to women. There’s the famous “Access Hollywood” tape that gave rise to thousands of pussy hats, the 22 women who have publicly accused him of sexual harassment and assault, and the hush money his personal lawyer has admitted to paying to cover up marital indiscretions. There is Trump’s tendency to insult women, from Carly Fiorina to Megyn Kelly to Mika Brzezinski. Most recently, there was his rally in Mississippi, during which the president mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations that Brett Kavanaugh, who has since been confirmed to the Supreme Court, had sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers."

And thanks to changes in campaign finance laws, the political contributions are legal. We have allowed our campaign finance laws to become a strategic threat to our country." … -campaigns

        Nice link Jake. Here's what it says about some of your claims:

        "The budget released by the White House on Monday also calls for a sizable reduction for Medicare..." That must be where you got your claim.

        But then it goes on to say this:
        "Most of the trims relate to changing payments to doctors and hospitals and renewing efforts to ferret out fraud and wasteful billingoft-cited targets by presidents of both parties".

        It sounds like this isn't a new "Trump thing" if presidents of both parties have called for it.

        Then this:
        "...the budget includes an initial installment of $291 million next year targeted to communities where the virus is continuing to infect people not getting proper treatment — the rural parts of seven states, including Mississippi; the District of Columbia; Puerto Rico and 48 hot-spot counties scattered throughout the country."

        Isn't that a good thing too?

        "However, the spending plan would cut funding for global AIDS programs .."

        Hmm.. increasing AIDS money to U.S. citizens and reducing AIDS money to the world's citizens... Is that a bad thing?

        And Medicaid...
        The idea of opening Medicaid to block grants to states — or a related idea that would create per-person funding caps — are fundamental alterations of an entitlement program run jointly by the federal government and states that began in the 1960s as part of the War on Poverty"

        Almost 60 years fighting our "War on Poverty, how are we doing? Statistics say "Not so good," so is trying a new approach such a bad Trumpian thing, or should we just keep throwing money at it instead of trying something new? I think I recall that "block grant" idea being tossed about by another recent president.

        Capping Medicaid growth? Some folks can qualify now, while making 60%, (160% poverty-level threshold),  above the poverty level income. Is capping that increase really a cut in Medicaid funding? Is capping free medical costs a terrible Trumpian thing?

        The ending of  ACA Medicaid expansion monies was one of the reasons many states did not initially go the Medicaid expansion route.

        There is more, and I haven't done a deep dive to confirm the Post's summary of those points, but your link doesn't seem to support the rhetoric of your meme or comment - so why did you post it?

    ALARMING *******: No surprise, Bozo Trump re-ignites his non-stop assault on your families health-care: Trump is Burnt TOAST and so are his Communist Russian Sympathizer Congressional Republicans: WHY is the Republican party SHRINKING so Rapidly in chaotic collapse? Here's just one more reason why Donald Trump decimated the republican house of representatives and WHY he decimated republican chances of holding on to their slim majority in the senate in 2020:

    I guess QUEEN Melanie deserves health insurance but the rest of us don't: This is nothing less than ABOMINABLE: ISIS will NEVER harm you, but Bozo Trump's constant attacks on you and your families health-care ABSOLUTELY WILL and that's unholy:

    Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, why would Trump back out of this if he's a puppet of Putin. We also all know Trump, he can't keep his mouth shut. Any sort of secret he has will come out so wouldn't we have some evidence of him saying exactly that he's influenced by Putin?

      Just FYI StevenHall: Listen and listen very closely: Right NOW, Bozo Trump, the oval office circus clown is threatening your mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles and grand-parents very existence by attempting to SLASH over a TRILLION Dollars from their earned entitlement benefits called Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid: These cuts know no political party and will do severe damage to republicans just like Democrats because these are the programs which pay their rent or mortgage, food expense, gas, heat, air conditioning, vehicle registration and television service, it also provides them with critically important HEALTH-Care:

      Just Thank GOD the Blue Wave of Progressive Democrats took control AWAY from the Corrupt Russian Republican Congress: Dems can now OBSTRUCT Mr. Trump's INSANITY, Dems will even save the last remaining Trump followers from financial ruin despite themselves:

    Republicans TURNING on Trump: If he's not Imprisoned or Institutionalized by then, Republican Senators have about 1 1/2 years to REMOVE Donald before he inevitably DESTROYS what's left of their pathetic treacherous careers just like he DESTROYED the careers of many republicans in the house when Progressive Democrats enjoyed an MAJOR WIN after an inevitable Blue Tidal Wave engulfed the House of Representatives and THANK God for that:

      Me too, but Chuck Grassley is still a radical CONservative who will if given the chance, strip us and our children of our Health-Insurance as he, Bozo Trump and republicans are desperately trying to do as we speak through the courts, an unholy abominable act which is nothing less than a concerted attack on "we the people", and he will continue to attack Social Security & Medicare and dismantle it if he and his republican cohorts get the chance and that's another abominable attack on the USA, an attack you typically find in third world nations, not here in the USA but that's where we find ourselves now, tolerating a nightmare of a dysfunctional oval office:

      I'm just curious to see if CONservative Senators finally do the right thing and join Dems to impeach and REMOVE Mr. Trump before he gets the chance to destroy the GOP Senate in 2020 just like he DESTROYED the GOP House of Representatives because it's coming:

        Well here we go, another exhibit of DAMNING Evidence against Chuck Grassley and Communist Russian Loving Republicans: This elderly creep could care less about your HealthCARE, my HealthCARE or your children's Health: In this SHOCKING Clip taken not too long ago at a town hall meeting, an Iowan woman says she'll die like so many others will, if ObamaCARE ACA is sabotaged completely by him and Bozo Trump, and she gets this weirdo politician to admit that he voted 7 TIMES to take her Health Insurance AWAY from her: UNREL:

        So seriously, do you still wonder WHY republicans were STOMPED by Progressive Dems in the 2018 midterm elections and WHY Progressive Dems could conceivably WIN a Veto Proof Majority in the Senate in 2020 ??

        Does anyone honestly believe CONservatives like this creep Chuck Grassley will be able to BAMBOOZLE enough voters in 2020 to win ?? REALLY, you think Americans are that dumb ??? Well, with a few exceptions primarily in the so called "Bible Belt" which is now a stronghold of Satans, I don't think they are:

        SHOCKING: ASTONISHING: Weirdo Republican Chuck Grassley should RESIGN Immediately for verbally assaulting this Iowan::

    So long Donny Boy, everyone knew you couldn't get away with it forever: Legendary Carl Bernstein was dead on correct again, it looks like the Mueller Report which has been criminally misrepresented to the public by republican "SHILL" Barr, is indeed a legitimate, intricately woven "Road Map" leading toward an abrupt "Dead End Street" for this insane, mega-chaotic and anti-American, illegitimate clown show of a presidency:

      How did the polls from 2016 turn out for you?

      1. JAKE Earthshine profile image77
        JAKE Earthshineposted 2 weeks agoin reply to this

        Obama's Inauguration LEFT and Trump's on RIGHT: Who's is BIGGER? So where on Earth is Trump's Crowd ???? Donald's looks more like the size crowd of someone who got maybe 10 or 20 MILLION Legitimate Votes which is probably about the size of his rabid base: The POLLS were SKEWED in 2016 because of Vladimir Putin's act of war by illegally infiltrating our voting system and one exhibit of evidence can be found at Clowny McTrump's relatively tiny inauguration photo above:

        Another EXHIBIT of Evidence is surfacing as we speak, reports of Russian Spies infiltrating actual voting apparatus: That would certainly SKEW any POLL: Don't you think it was rather odd for the POLLS to be off during just that time period ???? Well, Russian Spies manipulating our democracy is one valid reason WHY:

        By the Way: Biden 49% Trump 38% is a "Nationalist Heavy" Fox POLL so you could probably add an additional 3 or 4 points to Biden and SUBTRACT about the same from Trump to make it even more accurate::

          Are you secretly in love with Trump or something?
          I am not sure what you are trying to say with your post...But the fact is, Trump was elected in vast contrast to what the polls were saying.

          But I am curious...was you looking for this photo for Trump's Inauguration

            I'm in LOVE with OBSTRUCTING a retarded unattractive unpatriotic draft dodger who practically kssies the boots of Vladimir Putin on global television and is sabotaging mine, yours and everyone's including our children's HealthCARE System: There are at least a MILLION other reasons WHY he and republicans need to be OBSTRUCTED until he's IMPRISONED:

            BTW, I gave you several reasons why the POLLS were skewed in 2016 but believe me, nothing will save Donald and Communist Russian Loving Republicans from IMPEACHMENT, Indictment and a good old fashioned Mega-STOMPING in 2020:

              Well House Leader Nancy refuses to go forward with, It doesn't appear that Trump will be impeached...and I agree that that there will be a stomping in 2020...with the Republicans doing the stomping...And as someone who is an Independent, that isn't necessarily a good thing.
              If things continue as they currently are, the Dems are going to end up losing the house again.
              The reasons you gave for poll results, were not majorly effected by Russians, neither were the voting booths (as per Obama). In reality, the Russians had little effect on our processes, even with their attempts. Russian meddling in our elections are nothing new, and will continue, just as we meddle in other countries elections as well.

              The polls were wrong because of how they were conducted and because everyone was Hillary biased...Personally I don't care which source puts out poll results...I have always been leery of poll results. They can be skewed due to how they are conducted. And as anyone who has conducted polls can tell you, it isn't hard to manipulate questions to get the results you want.

                lol, yeah, I'll believe your "Independent" the day I believe a single word that spews from Donald Trump's ugly 72 year old mouth and I guess that means NEVER:

                STILL no explanation for WHY Bozo's inauguration had the relatively tiny crowd size of a candidate who got maybe 10 to 20 million LEGITIMATE Votes? Seems odd the only time in history where our POLLS were skewed happened when we experienced a "Sweeping and Systematic" infiltration of our election by Vladimir Putin who favored Trump:

                  DoubleScorpionposted 2 weeks agoin reply to this

                  The picture is due to media bias...Obama's was taken right beforehand, and the one for Trump was taken much earlier in the day.

                  And I am Independent.. I vote both parties, depending on their platform. I voted for Obama for his first term, but not his second. I have voted more Democrat in my local elections than I do Republican...Unlike many others, I don't just blindly vote for someone because of the party that are attached to.

                  Just an FYI, Calling someone a liar without proof is very underhanded and normally conducted by someone who has something themselves to hide or have no valid argument rebuttal. But, based on your previous postings, I am not surprised that you would have trouble believing that I am Independent, as you seem to struggle with facts.

                    And yes, you are correct about one thing, I don't believe you're an independent because independents will NEVER again be CONNED into voting for a charlatan like Donald who is doing his level insane best along with Communist Russian Loving Republicans, to undermine the institutions of this Tattered USA and Sabotage our HealthCARE System and I don't know any independents who are asking for that kind of madness, madness which will inevitably earn Donald and republicans  and their last remaining followers a one way ticket to the White Hot ABYSS:

Have we SUNK that LOW and WHY isn't he under psychiatric care ???? When Clowny McTrump HALLUCINATES on national television about some kind of "secret deal" with Mexico and then Mexican officials DENY the deal what kind of poll numbers does this circus flunkee expect? UNREAL:

    Are republicans in the senate going to snap out of it and IMPEACH this fool or get PULVERIZED in 2020 because of him??
