    Watch Fox or read Breitbart if you like biased news. The examples above may be silly or inconsequential but they aren't biased. Find a dictionary and learn what words mean, and why do you trolls find it necessary to clog message boards with your mostly ignorant threads? Are you paid to be a fool?

    "Mr. Trump causes severe distress rather than experiencing it and has been richly rewarded, rather than punished, for his grandiosity, self-absorption and lack of empathy. It is a stigmatizing insult to the mentally ill (who are mostly well behaved and well meaning) to be lumped with Mr. Trump (who is neither).

    Bad behavior is rarely a sign of mental illness, and the mentally ill behave badly only rarely. Psychiatric name-calling is a misguided way of countering Mr. Trump’s attack on democracy. He can, and should, be appropriately denounced for his ignorance, incompetence, impulsivity and pursuit of dictatorial powers.

    His psychological motivations are too obvious to be interesting, and analyzing them will not halt his headlong power grab. The antidote to a dystopic Trumpean dark age is political, not psychological." Allen Frances, Coronado, Calif.

    Investigate: "Figure things out for yourself. Spend more time on long articles. Subsidize investigative journalism by subscribing to print media. Realize that some of what is on the internet is there to harm you. Learn about sites that investigate propaganda campaigns (some of which comes from abroad). Take responsibility for what you communicate with others." Lesson 11 'On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century' by Timothy Snyder

    It won't be changing any time soon.

    The question is how willing Trump & Co are to keep stoking the fire.

    The looney liberal left has driven themselves into a crazed frenzy over Trump being elected president.

    They are leaderless, powerless, with no direction, and their only agenda is "hate Trump".

    It's such a wonderful sight...... [​IMG] ... [​IMG]

    The Left has a new movie "Post" about the Washington Post and Watergate.
    It was over 40 years ago and they are still obsessed with it.
    Obama's abuse of power and corruption makes Nixon look like a cub scout, but they will never make a movie about it.
    Obama used the government as political weapon against his opposition just like a third world despot would do it.
    BTW Hanks and Streep ..... uuuugh

    The irony in your post is so thick you have to cut it with a chainsaw.

    There is a real cultural aspect to the Left's fanatical hatred of Trump.
    They hate the people who voted for him...... mainstream middle class people, heartland Americans, patriots, Christians, wasps, suburbanites, southerners, midwesterners...... well just average people

    Why not?

    It keeps the press fixated on inconsequential idiocy while they get their agenda through.
