    President Trump has a mercurial as well as capricious disposition. It’s a matter of when, not if.

    IMO

    Then why did dems balk at the cruz bill? That's right, they don't want a solution because they think they can ride suffering children to electoral victories.

    The 14 day limit was not workable, particularly in the short term.

I'm actually really glad we don't have a LEFT-wing populist swamp creature running the country. I like to think that we on the left would eschew someone who lies and dissembles and victimizes the weak, but I have no confidence in that we could not fall for such a demagog.

    Now Trump has done something that very few people can defend, something so horrible that even his supporters denounce his action.

    My question is, how long will it be before he does something worse? Is it possible? Is he PLANNING something worse because he thinks it plays so well for his base? I think scenes of crying children and immigrants fighting with ICE officers in sanctuary cities is just around the corner.

    I think David Brooks is right in this column, where he points out that Trump and his closest supporters aren't conservatives, they are merely anti-liberal trolls. They really have no agenda beyond countering whatever people on the left seek to do. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/18/o...eparation.html

    Trumpists don't oppose oppressive government power--they merely seek to harness it for their own ends.
    My friend hit the nail on the head when she said years ago, "what if the 40% of Americans that never vote, decide to? Who would they vote for?" Now we know.

    As I've always stated, he will be Caesar, and now he wants to emulate Hadrian.

    It seems so many people on the right are anti-liberal trolls. that's their entire existence to hate and blame liberals. Fox propaganda a wild success in that regard

    For most of them, "liberal" means "anyone who disagrees with my point of view."

    And actually will probably bite them in the ass awaking a sleeping giant of voters that won't tolerate republican scumbaggery anymore and realize how important it is to vote, and the dems take power.

    It's likely it will explode in their faces. ANd they are really outing themselves as heartless, unintelligent, hypocritical deplorables

    Fortunately for Americans, this GOP Congress does not like the price-tag.

    "Will Trump Do Something Worse?" - Always. And since most of us cannot afford to take off work and protest in the streets, nothing will change until mid-terms.

    If then.
