It's amazing, it's unprecedented, and yet the left insists it's not so, that it's Trump causing all the problems, they are merely being rightly critical. Well THAT's not so but I gave up a long time ago saying anything about it here or to anyone except people who share my views. There are a lot of us but the other side drowns us out because they have the favor of the media.

The role of the media has changed from being information-driven to being entertainment-driven... and this has exacerbated tensions to the point where it is almost satirical. But you don't seem to see your own role in all of this. This syrupy-sweet Trump-can-do-no-wrong sympathizing is just as horribly biased as the people you condemn, if only in reverse.

What a relief it is to read someone who actually likes Trump, can spell out his good qualities and his achievements, his generosity, his patriotism, his concern for forgotten classes of citizens, who sees that there really is an unprecedented conspiracy to bring him down by the Left, who hate my half of the country, and canspeak for those who voted for his truly America-loving policies.

Ask anyone here if they consider me a "leftist." None, besides yourself would... then again, standing next to you defaults me to a Maoist rebel... but I digress. My central point is that even amongst his party, Trump is out of step. Even voices on the Right are acknowledging that he's an idiot, that he's essentially colluding with Russians, that he's sending this country into dangerous and unpredictable directions based upon flippant whims, and that he, an uber-rich financier, managed to trick desperately poor folk into believing that he gives a crap about them... So are those Republicans crazy or is Trump a little nuts and your fawning over him a little too cultish?

[Redacted due to AdminPhat's advisory]

Question though... while not explicitly discussing the book, are topics concerning an alleged Anti-Trump "conspiracy" allowed?
