Politics 2017 WTF thread

No, really....seriously...honestly....

What The Fuck is going on?

The POTUS is a serial, sociopathic bullshitter. He lies and makes shit up at will. Given a interview platform, he will babble incoherently. He attacks his own people on social media.

Two things that really blow me away: one is his utterly amoral dishonesty. Yes, politicians shade the truth and phrase things to their own advantage. But THIS guy is something else.

The other thing is, its basically acknowledged that Russia sought to sway our elections. And to some measure, they've succeeded. Maybe I'm just old, but back in the day, this would be a major fucking outrage. Now, its like people just shrug and move on.

Honest to god, I don't get whats going on here. I can't imagine an outcome that doesn't involve impeachment.

He will not be impeached, without becoming an anchor yet. We are in phase 2 of the impeachment march. We need to get to phase 3 (inevitable fallout that irrevocably costs the republicans the Senate and the House), before they will move to impeach.

Russian didn't just try to sway our elections. I WHOLEHEARTEDLY believe they SUCCEEDED.

The real issue ins't Trump. Its the fact that people treat POLITICS like its a TEAM SPORT now.

I'm not big on politics, but I'm no fan of the President or his team

I can't even believe he is our President. Not saying I was a huge fan of Hillary either, but almost every week I don't think could get worse, but it seems like it does. I don't think he'll get impeached. We'll just have to ride out this shit storm for 3 1/2 more years.

I really don't like what he did to the FCC, Betsy DuVos, the EPA, and plenty more.

I just can't believe what he's doing to America. Great my ass. I could go on and on, but I'll leave it at that.

It used to be hard for me to believe. But as I look at our country, I've been forced to accept that there simply are more stupid people than smart ones.

That, I believe is just a fact.

Shit-heads who voted for Trump really believed he'd make America great again. Trump epitomizes how fucked up America is, the ugly American. Odd how he has the gall to badmouth others' looks with a face like his.


He's a crook who evaded prosecution for fraud by running for Prez. WTF??? The way his son keeps getting caught in lies about the Russian spy meeting is something else. Makest it easy to believe there was collaboration or/and collusion. Does anybody believe Trump wasn't involved or was uninformed? It's clear the Russians hacked our election, undermining the processes of our democratic republic. Espionage at the very least. Sabotage or an attack that was an act of war. For Trump to be a part of such I can only believe was treasonous. I believe he's the worst sort of shitbag crook.


And he's removing what little protections we have from the corporate shit-heads. Without which they have free reign to poison and enslave us. Not that it's not done already. But it gives encouragement to do it even moreso. When what business should be encouraged to be innovative in ways to profit while promoting equity and a healthy environment.

No, I think the fucker should be impeached at the very least.

He's a colostomy.

Remember the Central Park five? Al Sharpton pointed out how even after the real perpetrator finally confessed, after his DNA matched to exonerate the five and their convictions vacated, total tool Trump insisted they never should have been released. (I remember hearing about the case in the news and how they were finally let go after getting railroaded.) Then it takes two days for advisors to talk Trump into denouncing white supremacists after that girl was murdered in Charlottesville. It's a pattern with Trump as to keeping silent about incidents of racist travesty when he won't STFU about everything else. But no, let's not call Trump a shitbird racist. The fuck I won't! Trump is a shitbird racist!! But not like we didn't already know!

Damn! When do we lose this turd?

Not only is it true, the ratio is not even close.
