They seem to be frustrated by the truth, and want to lash out at conservatives who would dare disagree with them. And, when you disagree, they immediately call you a troll or other choice names. It's the kind of behavior you'd expect from small children, but from adults it's annoying.
They are almost invariably the ones who make the discussion personal via insults when they come across an opinion that doesn't conform to their narrow world view.

How about trump blaming everything on obama?

Hillary did get almost 3 million more votes than trump.

If private industry took responsibility for its messes, we would need far less regulation.

A place to begin your research:

Superfund - Wikipedia

Much of what Obama did had to be cleaned up. Obama's domestic policies caused businesses to leave America because of high taxes and unnecessary regulations.

And, it doesn't matter how many votes Hillary got, if she still lost the election, according to the Constitution.

Private industry is what runs our country. Most of them, including mom and pop stores, do a pretty good job. Government, getting out of their way and allowing them to be creative, hiring more people, providing jobs so the workers can then pay have a decent living and pay taxes. What can be more American than that?

Sure, there are always going to be some bad players. Punish them, but don't punish everybody.

Under Trump, US jobs are moving overseas even faster than before

Yes, I have noticed that. I was on another board, and they were the same on that board. There wasn't a day that went by that conservatives weren't called a racist, deplorable, and many other despicable names, as if they hate everything that is conservative.
Their modus operandi is hate, call others names, and declare victory.

In the US, the lower taxes are, the more conservatives squawk.

I have noticed that the more hardcore US conservative is quite a petty, selfish and hateful creature, which is quite a contrast to our more moderate conservative in Australia (I'm sure the 'troll element' exists in my country ~ but they aren't as vociferous), however, that perception comes from participation in fora such as this, and may not be representative of the entire demographic. As we see here, most 'conservatives' are merely trolls who just post hateful and selfish tripe of little merit, and they simply want to attack someone for fun while avoiding any discussion in any depth ~ puerile and self-centered creatures with self-esteem deficiencies who project their filth onto others.

GM is effectively pulling out of the upper Midwest save Detroit. Moody's estimates Ford is about to follow them. The steel and aluminum industries are growing, but on the basis of completely unsustainable tariffs that will eventually get repealed (and quite probably by court order, at an inconvenient time), causing all of those people to instantly lose their renewed employment.

This is a time of growth. Tax cuts and deregulation are things you consider in a bad economic time to give the economy a kick in the pants. You're supposed to spend growth times getting debt under control and fortifying the economy for the next dip. Our debt is exploding, and Trump is deliberately ignoring the bad omens on the horizon because he figures it won't be his problem.

And, it doesn't matter how many votes Hillary got, if she still lost the election, according to the Constitution.
States are increasingly adopting measures wherein the Electoral College will not again overturn a clear mandate from the general populace.

Otherwise, it's not in anyone's best interest to win an election with no mandate. The GOP seems set on pursuing this strategy in the long run. It will fail.

Private industry is what runs our country. Most of them, including mom and pop stores, do a pretty good job. Government, getting out of their way and allowing them to be creative, hiring more people, providing jobs so the workers can then pay have a decent living and pay taxes.

Dunno! Job growth through Obama's last two years pretty much matches what we've seen since 2017, though.

The uprising is due to 9 week of vacation given to the working class each year. The French love vacations and driving works out best for people on low incomes, The elite don't suffer from the raise. So being unfare...they demanded .find something ... but don't do this (IMO)

Any way, the tax has been suspended.
If the OP is right, suspending the tax will have absolutely no impact on the rioting.

This about the people "revolting against socialism," after all.

The OP is too busy cheering on the violence to take much notice of anything else...even the fact that he's been coming off as a know-nothing cheerleader with every post he's made here.
