Politics don't make me emotional.
So he writes (and actually sends, holy shit) a letter to a world leader that looks like it was written by a fourth grader. He loses his shit in a meeting with the leaders of a co-equal branch of government, insults them, meeting ends. Before that he's trolling and dancing on the graves of the Kurds, as bombs were raining down on them, after he threw our allies under the bus.

This is just the last few days. It has been like this for over two years now. It's happened with such frequency that it almost seems NORMAL, and that's the LAST thing it should be.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Party is now largely under the control of illiberal leftist authoritarians. I'd really like to vote third party, since both parties have completely gone over the edge. I wanted to vote third party in 2016, but I knew I didn't want Trump within miles of the Oval Office. So I held my nose with both hands and voted for Hillary.

This man should not be in the White House. He is unstable, he is not mentally well, he has no empathy or loyalty or decency or dignity, and he's becoming a literal danger to this country. This can't continue. So now I have to prepare myself to do it again, against my impulses and wishes.

The Clintons have done as much damage to the nation as FDR and are a true shit stain on American political history.
They are true racists, elites, globalists and look down their noses at you.
If you voted for Hillary, you didn't need to hold your nose. You can't smell shit if it was smeared up your nostrils.

Trump may be a disaster.....but Hillary would have been the apocalypse.

I like the way you really zeroed in on the point of the post there.

You're going to back this man no matter how ugly this gets, no matter what he does. I get it.

Bummer for you, as he will most likely win at this point.
Meanwhile, in flyover country, most of us continue about our lives, wondering what the fuss is all about. Most folks, actually half the country, really are not engaged or care.
The screwing of the average citizen continues unabated despite who is in office, which explains why most are apathetic.

My understanding is totally different.
Apparently they had this meeting yesterday.....and the Democrat leaders decided to stage another event.
Trump handed out a copy of the letter he sent to all of the members present....Pelosi refused to read it...turned it face-down on the table....then started making wise-cracks about Putin and Trump. Trump asks Pelosi what she finds so funny and she starts throwing a fit and storms out. Once the spoiled Dems left....they actually got something done. Meanwhile the Democrats were outside pouting and making up their version of what happened in the meeting and Nancy Pelosi is nashing her dentures and grinning like a cokehead. I really think the next time she shows up at the White House, she should do it sober.

A pity petulance isn't an impeachable offense

His supporters actually applaud him his behavior w/all manner of 'tough guy' claims

Actually Trump is behaving better than Democrats.
They claim he had a meltdown....but in reality they acted like spoiled brats and stormed out.....and once the brats left he resumed the meeting.

Pretty much, since there is currently no alternative. A Democrat is out of the question.

Your priorities are all out of wack if you think a lack of decorum is worse than the shit the democrats want to subject the nation to.

After Trump's win, I posted that my fear was that he'd screw up so badly that, in response, the Regressive Left would be able to fully take over the Democratic Party. Then we'd see only the far ends of the spectrum represented in 2020. So no matter which party won, it would be very bad news.

Right now, at this moment, my fear is pretty much playing out in real time.

The "regressive left" didn't take over the dem party. Trump merely incited them to show their true selves.

Can you give some examples?

We had peace and prosperity while Bill Clinton was President

Why doesn’t Trump just release a tape of the meeting so we can decide?

There was nothing wrong with that letter to Erdogan. He could have dressed it up with flowery language which might have placated the elites but the message would still be the same regardless.

What makes you think he has a recording of it?
Oh......oh.....let's start another impeachment hearing so we can lie about what really happened.

Outside of continuing the downward trajectory of the unemployment rate that he inherited, he has brought precisely the kind of chaos and destruction and instability that I feared. Well, actually, even more. I gave him the benefit of the doubt that he could at least ACT like a decent adult, and I over-shot there.

I know the "I could shoot somebody on 5th Avenue" rule. I get it. I'm not trying to convince people like you of anything.
