    Such fine individuals each and every one.


    #5. Jeff Sessions, Trump's Attorney General Pick, Has Spent Decades Opposing Civil Rights. He was too racist for a 1980 congress but not for Trump.

    #3. Trump's Secretary Of The Treasury Is A Former Goldman Sachs Executive Who Specialized In Bogus Foreclosures
    Mnuchin. We already talked about him. You praised him for being a savvy business man.

    #2. Trump's National Security Adviser Is An Outspoken Islamophobe With Business Ties To Turkey And Russia

    #1. Trump's Pick For Secretary Of Education Has Zero Educational Experience And Advocates Defunding Public Schools
    0 experience doesn't disqualify Betsy DeVos. Being a major donor for his campaign (which he promissed he will fund out of his own pocket btw) is quite enough

    I like Jeff Sessions, the rest I never heard of. But at (least I am pretty sure )far better than the socialist and communist ones we just had.

    Don't blame Donald Trump for this, he is just being Donald Trump, an arrogant 1980's Reagan era throwback, we all knew this going into the election. You can blame all of this on those tens of millions of lazy Democrats that never bothered to vote. To quote Bill Clinton again: "Getting Democrats to agree on a course of action is like herding cats"

    usually, when someone you like is accused of racism, the correct response is "really, a racist? and to think i used to like him".

    Actually, the right response is usually "Oh look a lefty just accused someone of racism, but that's what they do to everyone 24x7, so it means nothing." First Sessions, then Bork, then Thomas... on and on. We're not listening anymore.

    To a lefty almost everyone is a racist. The word loses it's effect after awhile don't you think?
    Sorry Sleepyguy, you beat me to it...

    yes, a 1980 senate committee (that also had 2 republicans voting against jeff) is a "leftie".
    all his colleagues that testified against him are also lefties.

    see this, now this is an ad hominem. maybe those that have no idea how to differentiate between ad hominems and insults can use this as a reference.


    it doesn't matter what the claim was and if it can stand or be defeated on its own. what matters is that a "leftie" made the claim and therefore it is false.

    You wouldn't know a communist if he was fighting for your civil rights.

    And yet you do the same thing. You criticize the person rather than address the point that you can call anyone you disagree with, a racist. How about the word hypocrisy?
