A local man for whom I have considerable regard barked at me last week. He said, "Quit giving Donald Trump the benefit of the doubt."

The problem with persuading the "progs" to "ration their gasps" is that their unremitting, irrational, infantile anger won't allow it. Anger is their coping mechanism for their total absence of logic.
"Progs", deep down, are miserable people with pathetic, unhappy lives and a perverted world view. And there is no indication they're going to snap out of it anytime soon.
And when they finally lose complete control, it manifests itself in horrific ways; whether by shooting up a congressional ball practice, or opening fire in a public school.
Face facts, people, "progs" are a very dangerous threat to society, and need to be dealt with as quickly as possible.

JB - Your attempt to compare Trump to Clinton involving sexual scandals was (once again) incomplete and false. Impeachment for Clinton wasn't just about sex. It was about lying to a federal judge to cover up the sex. Sex started it, but lies brought to a head.
You can't wish for Trump's impeachment until and unless he lies to a judge about his sexual escapades.
I believe we have learned that just cheating on your spouse is not grounds for impeachment. You and your fellow members of the press knew about Clinton long before he became president, and you all were part of the wink and nod coverup.

Since when did a ‘prog’ shoot up a school, moz? Explain your statement. Oh, right; you can’t. It was your usual unremitting, irrational infantile anger at work. Face facts people, moz is a very dangerous threat to society and must be dealt with as quickly as possible.

DoublyDumb, Nikolas Cruz was a proven "prog". Just look at his social media posts.

Palin set the lowest of bars when she came along. Trump destroyed that low. Compared to all that, Clinton is a saint. In a weird way, Trump is going to be good for the nation because a reset of government will occur in the upcoming elections. Mid term 2018, and the 2020 presidential, are going to be a real cleansing. The hurdle will then be the leftover Trump supporters who are lost flotsam. That’ll be a job, for sure. We’ll persevere and take care of the situation and get everything back on track.

Lol, moz. He hated everyone you hate - immigrants, gays, blacks - and wanted to kill them all. He abused women, both his mother and a girl he was interested in, which you’ve likely also done. There is footage of him wearing a MAGA hat while target practicing in his back yard. He was clearly a gun nut. What about any of this says ‘prog.’ It’s textbook Trumptard.

You're delusional, WGT.
GOP will gain seats in both houses. Bet on it.

mozarky2 is more likely a poorly written algorithm than an actual and rational human.

Democrat on TV this morning saying he can't wait till the trial for the 13 Russians to start here, hate to tell the dummy their not coming. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said Russian interference with U.S. elections and political processes that resulted in 13 indictments against Russian nationals was “equivalent” to the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese in 1941. 2000 Americans died at Pearl Harbor Mr. Nadler, are you really that dumb?
Brummett says and knows there was no Russia Trump collusion, but he does the same think the Russians were doing by causing confusing and discord in our country by his tweet "The story of the 2016 presidential race is that Hillary carried America but Trump carried Russia."

Why does the columnist bring up a "bipartisan group in the U.S. Senate arrived at a compromise by which the so-called Dreamers would get their continued residence and Trump would get a stream of money for his border wall." These few senators of dems and reps had Zero chance of making this so-called compromise through senate and house. I can see how the columnist is confused, he just staying comfused.
There is a huge differance between Russia meddling in our election and Trump Russia collusion. CNN, MSNBC and main stream media have spent a year and tens of thousnds of hours on Trump Russia collusion. As Brummett says it's not True, no collusion.
