    When you're busy complaining that Donald Trump won, I'd like you to just remember who abused open primaries to ensure that Donald Trump would be the one running against Hillary. I'd also like you to remember that Republicans alone weren't the ones voting for Donald Trump in the presidential election, either. You brought this on yourselves by selecting a someone even more unelectable than Trump, and helping to select Trump to run against her. Far fetched, but maybe this will teach you that all actions have consequences, and taking those actions means you've accepted those consequences.

    That monkey wrench you threw seems to have actually been a boomerang. Good job, Democrats<3

    And when DJT betrays the far right, the jack o'lanterns will arise.

    There are two big losers in this election... the Establishments of BOTH parties. The people have spoken and they emphatically rejected both establishments. Trump is the result of Establishment politicians not listening to the American people. They are fed up with the "identity politics" of the left and they are fed up with the feckless republican leadership failing to take on the left. This was a mandate against the politics-as-usual status quot in Washington.

    We won't know what Trump will be like until he's had a chance and time for things. I am definitely willing to give him that chance. I can't sit here and say how he is going to be when he has never even held office.

    I have given them all a chance over the years. We all should. Stop the hate.

    You've misunderstood my message. I'm only saying that they shouldn't vote for someone they didn't want to win, and this man who they already hate has won due to their actions. Hence the fact that I've said nothing about his future performance. I'm just going to wait and observe.

    I knew what you meant and how, and I agree. I was off topic to a degree I guess. I was just saying what I am doing. :)

    You're asking a LOT from Democrat liberal progressives. They don't know how to give chances and not hate. They have formed a complete political movement around "identity politics" ...putting people in groups and pitting them against each other for political purposes.

    You are giving great advice though, I applaud your efforts. I think the Democrat Party needs to have a serious internal conversation and come up with a different game plan than identity politics because that is dead now.... the people have rejected that nonsense once and for all. They have ZERO political power now in Washington. All they can hope for is to try and obstruct Trump by cajoling a few Republicans over to their side. But the GOP is going to set the agenda now, just as Democrats did under Obama.

    I know. I am watching them falling apart with their ''protests'' on my Twitter account. Some are totally hysterical. And I don't mean on the funny way. I mean how they are behaving.

    We didn't vote for someone we didn't want to win. We voted for Trump because we wanted him to win. He won. Go away. Take 5 others with you. Eat them.
