    We'll see if Trump is actually "winning" in the mid-terms.

    Comey and complacency are primarily what got Trump elected, let's hope turnout in the mid-terms can save America from this menace, turnout among dems was up between 16 and 46% in counties across Virginia.

    He touts his tax bill, it's not much of an "achievement" politics-wise when everyone hates it.

    Thx

    Was Obamacare an achievement? I am sure that you remember that everyone hated that one too, when it was passed.

    That, my dear, is a lie.

    2017 1.9 under Trump

    2016 2.1 under Obama

    Okay but it is still damn good, isn't it? What was Obama's first year? You know 2009?

    What? During the Great Recession? Well, that's a fair comparison. Bush leaves the economy in smoldering ruins and Obama steadily improves it and hands off an economy that's humming along but you want to compare the two? WTF is wrong with you?

    But wait, you want to compare President Trump's first year results to President Obama's eighth year results. Is that fair comparison? WFT is wrong with you? See how easy it is to spin that around?

    I never compared anything. It's Trump who's touting an economy that he has little or nothing to do with and declaring that he's created more jobs than Obama. If he'd keep his lying pie hole shut this shit wouldn't even come up.

    Kind of hard not to "win" when you have a majority of your own party in both houses.

    I think it's sad that people are more concerned about illegal immigrants than they are about real problems like deregulated banks, unsafe drinking water and not having health insurance.

    Many applaud Donald Trump for "telling like it is", refusing to be bound by norms of presidential behaviour and political correctness.
    Good thing you Brits stopped breeding snowflakes. Time for the Empire to rise again!

    Hey, since we're snowflakes and you are not, why not redress the grievance that was our Revolutionary War?

    Just think, after you squash us like so many bugs, you can rule us from Parliament once again.

    This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write and admit: Trump is winning. In the brief space of a week, he won a brief court fight to shove Mick Mulvaney to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Mulvaney wasted no time in unhinging a spate of consumer protection rulings, regulations, and personnel hires made during the Obama years.

    His SCOTUS pick, Neil Gorsuch, eagerly cast a vote to impose the Muslim travel ban. His EPA head, Scott Pruitt, delivered a couple million acres of public monument land in the West to oil, gas, and coal industry developers. Trump busily continues to pack the federal judiciary with a parade of ultra-conservative, strict, constructionist Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia clones. He switched gears and backed alleged pedophile Alabama judge Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race, who almost certainly will win. The Republican National Committee, which had practically declared Moore a pariah, quickly jumped in and said it would back him. He got another sweet perk when Senate Democrats turned with a vengeance on Minnesota Senator Al Franken and virtually ordered him out of office. His subsequent resignation got rid of a pesky thorn for Trump.

    Trump’s biggest win, though, has come on three fronts. One is the GOP. It can rail and curse at him publicly and privately, but it needs Trump. The second front he’s winning on is the continuing love fest that his devout base has with him. While polls show that his overall approval ratings consistently wallow under forty percent, buried in the polling fine print is the overwhelming majority of whom back him. The third winning front for Trump is his perennial ace in the hole: the media. He remains a ratings cash cow for the networks and makes stunning copy for the print media. He knew that from day one of his presidential bid and he knows it even more now. This has been his patent ploy, distract and deflect. The public and networks take the bait every time.

    [Trump] pooh-poohed the guilty plea of his former National Security Advisor Mike T. Flynn as no big deal while shouting “no collusion, no collusion” and got away with it.

    Not exactly.
