    I almost feel sorry for all those blue collar Trump supporters. These honest, hard working people put their faith in a New York Billionaire who has enriched himself by hiring cheap foreign labor (recently at Mar A Largo at $4.00 an hour) bought lots of foreign clothing from sweatshops, and routinely defrauded his workers out of their pay, then hired his lawyers to tie this payroll money up in the courts, while he invested it to enrich himself further. Now we find the steel industry is beginning another round of layoffs, those loudly promised oil and coal jobs are being replaced with wind and solar power jobs that very few of these folks are trained to do, and yet his blue collar supporters still cling to their ragged hopes that this man in his expensive suite who has repeatedly stabbed them in the back will now help them somehow.


    You folks a voted for Billionaire that appointed other Billionaires to fix the same system that made them Billionaires in the first place?? You're a special kind of stupid, aren't you?!

    If only the government could run everything.

    Then we would finally see an end to injustice and corruption.

    Hell, I'd be over the moon, if he'd just stop lying every single chance he gets.

    Again, Bertrand Russell said that elected officials cannot be more stupid than their voters
    because the more stupid that they are, the more stupid are the people who voted for them.

    I don't. Arse to the lot of them. They knew exactly what they asked for and they, not us in the civilised world, deserve to get what they asked for good, hard, and in all available orifices.
