Heck I've wanted to bring it up a bunch of times, but you probably end up on some FBI watch list. But in the end you're dealing with a narcissistic sociopath who has no qualms when it comes to destroying the planet with his views on global warming, dealing with a nuclear North Korea, or dancing with the devil in Putin. He doesn't view people like normal people do. So therefore you can't try to negotiate or talk to him like you do normal folks.

It needs to be said; the world would be a better place without Trump one way or another. Maybe it's a bit hyperbolic, but when you consider his stance on global warming in particular, he's actually a threat to humanity and our future on this planet. Why would he care at all about it? He's 72 and will be dead sooner rather than later. So why not try to line his pockets as best he can now.

The man's a threat, and while I'd love to see his empire fall and him stand trial, I'd rejoice just as easily if I woke up tomorrow with news of him having a heart attack.
Objectively, this may very well be true.

But I think it's healthier to hope that he performs well.
People here are considerably divided. Most are afraid to even bring up politics now. But at the end of the day, everyone is hoping for the country to succeed. Hoping for the president's death isn't going to bring this country together.

I stumbled across this over the weekend somehow.
Check out the responses to Pence, he doesn't seem well liked.

This is the best case scenario, when everyone is home:

Yah, but what if say, late one night, while Trump is frothing at the mouth watching CNN, madly tweeting away, and then chokes on his fried chicken. He cries for help, and Pence comes running in. But instead of helping, Pence looks on calmly while President Dotard chokes to death on fried chicken.

Next thing you know, we get President Mike Pence, who is probably even scarier to deal with than Trump.

Let that sink in for a minute...

Longing for the days when presidential scandals included tan suits and putting mustard on a burger. Disclaimer: I love mustard.

That just conjured up images of Zorg choking in "The Fifth Element".

Why is Melania publicly calling out for that aide to be fired? She could just talk to....I don’t know.....her husband? I find it really strange. There has to be more to the story for her to release a statement like that.

I think they just don't have anything to Tweet in support of Trump Tweets for the past four days. They could be silent until 2020.

It sounded like it was her "office" that called for the firing, after she pissed them off on the Melania to Africa trip. I doubt Melania even knows or cares who she is.

While you're back in November 2016, put some money on the Penguins to repeat.

It's healthier to root for his opponents to use every legal weapon in the arsenal to bring him to justice. And it would be most helpful if he Roger Ailes'd it immediately after losing power.

As someone said, 'death is the solution to all problems - no man, no problem'.

I'm in the middle of doing my good deed for like the next century and old people really do watch Fox news really loud all day. But what really amazes me is they leave it on all night too. A constant steady drip. Every twenty minutes all night was the My Pillow commercial, the Omaha Steaks commercial, two lawyers yelling at me about getting some money if I ever took one of the following horrible medications that will kill me before I ever get my money anyway. Then breaking news!



What I did not realize is how stupid Fox news really is. They're still mad at Obama and Hillary. And literally none of the Mueller indictees should be charged because Obama lied about keeping your doctor and your premiums not going up. So it's ok to hire foreign agents to rig your election because Obama did (sort of) it.



And they're so mad at the black woman in Florida who runs the elections. She is the devil and should be subject to Florida's harshest capital punishment. Somehow counting votes over and counting every vote is undemocratic. Like wouldn't there be just as much of a chance at having republican votes as democrat votes no matter when they come in?



Why is the tv so loud? It makes me want to cry.

While there are some extreme exceptions to the rule, I just can't wish for someone's earthly demise. That includes Trump. What would be much more enjoyable would be to watch him disgraced by being removed from office, his kids go to jail, all of his properties be seized, and him die of old age as a pauper. I'm not sure the universe could deal with that much karmic justice, and it might disappear in a flash of light as it collapses into a new singularity.
