    I think you’re correct about that.

    A Memphis megachurch pastor received a standing ovation during a church service on Sunday after he admitted that he had engaged in a “sexual incident” with a high school student 20 years ago in Texas.

    I mean, it's super fun to laugh at people who are justifiably angry about overt white supremacy in the White House. I guess.

    I've been involved in layoff planning multiple times and this was definitely the case. I've seen it work out too - the employee keeps the severance, and gets a new job right away.


    Except if he is over 50. They have a hard time to get reemployed and if you do not believe their is age discrimination I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. If you have participated in layoff planning sessions you know that the older employee is targeted primarily because he is the higher paid and has benefits that cost the company more.

    Hang in there Mr. President @realDonaldTrump. If those countries aren’t as you described, Democrats should be happy to deport criminal aliens back to them. &End #AnchorBabies, too.

    I don't care about consensual sex between adults, either. But I cannot fathom the outrage from the "Christian" right if Obama had done this. I'd wager we'd have a whole lot of hand-wringing about "promiscuous black men" and "sinfulness."
    Take a good look at that porn star. No wonder he went after Megan Kelly during and after the debate.

    I used to find Trump's act amusing but not now when he's the president. I don't think he's Satan, I just think he's an incompetent buffoon and blowhard of questionable character who has ended up with job he probably neither likes or really wanted. Lucky us.

    i'm not bothered by any one individual here or elsewhere. But I am bothered by the sheer number of racists in this country that are showing their true colors by their continued support of this president. I knew racism was a bigger problem than a lot of people tend to admit but I'm still a little taken aback by just how big it actually is.

    For future reference, that’s who “right wing voter” is. Full stop. It is not now, and never has been, about economic anxiety, limited government, states’ rights or religious freedom.

    I know several who are single-issue voters. They'll vote for the anti-choice candidate at the expense of the poor, POC, women, the disabled, already born children, etc.

    Aside from that, I agree with you.

    Trump received around 46% of the vote (if I remember correctly). Maybe I'm being willfully naive but I refuse to believe that 46% of the country are racists or any percentage close to that number.

    I'd bet most of them are racist too. It's not mutually exclusive.

    The issue is not that. The issue is 33% still do support him. How can one see what he has done, is doing, has said and not at least be ok with racism and bigotry which to me is being racist.

    I am. He's symbolic of the typical Trump voter and closest we have to a proxy for a Trump supporter here at NYYfans.

    If he finds it amusing that some folks are understandably upset about the President's overtly racist statements it's a sad commentary on the people who still support Trump. Worse it shows that many of his supporters not only don't care that the President is openly racist, they find it funny.
