Am I asking too much?
    You’re still going to Obama, haha! Dude, he hasn’t been president in over 2 years!

    Trump and the GOP have had total control of government for 2 years.

    No shit he hasn't been president for 2 years. Just a few weeks ago he was bragging and saying the economy doing well now is thanks to him, and his batshit insane supporters agreed. I just want to know when it's officially Trump's economy and stock market. You apparently think it was Trump's since September 2017. Good for you for having some dignity.

    Wait.. what happened in September 2017?

    This is all him. If he gets it to 27k+ I’ll give him credit.

    First he has to actually win on something besides tax cuts. Shutting down the government for “steel slats with spikes” is not a good look.
    STILL a better look than an ugly woman in an ugly pant suit.

    Sorry your girl lost (not at all)

    Before Trump visited the troops for Christmas the media was in a frenzy about how he was such a bad evil orange man for not visiting the troops. Now after his visit the media just can't just complaining about his visit.

    First CNN bitched that there was some sort of rule broken about troops asking Trump to sign their MAGA hats.

    Now the media is claiming Trump's visit was politicizing the military.

    WHAT?! All you guys in the media could do was whine and bitch and carry on that Trump is the first president since 2003 to not visit troops during Christmas and now you're saying a president visiting the troops is politicizing the military?

    This is what happens when you cater to a bunch of people who just want non-stop bad stories about Trump, you go from one extreme to the next in order to give your audience what they want, even if it means completely contradicting yourself in literally a matter of hours.

    Cyntoia Brown, who at the age of 16 was a prostitute, was solicited by a man whom she told she was 18. The man brought her back to his house and according to her own testimony in court they didn't have sex. She then shot him in the back of the head while he was sleeping, stole his guns and stuff, stole his vehicle, and went back to her pimp. This woman was granted clemency today for some strange reason, but that's not even the facepalming part of the story.

    The facepalming part of the story is how CNN worded their headline: Cyntoia Brown is granted clemency after serving 15 years in prison for killing man who bought her for sex

    CNN makes it sound like the guy bought her as a sex slave, kept her locked up in the basement, and one day managed to escape by shooting her abuser and escaping with her life.

    Ashley Judd gives a completely different account of what happened:

    I encourage and plead with my Tennessee Governor @BillHaslam to grant #Clemency4Cyntoia. Cyntoia Brown was a victim of child sex trafficking, raped and forced into paid sexual exploitation to stay alive. She deserves our empathy and your mercy.

    This whole story and her defenders make me sick.

    Want to argue that a minor shouldn't be charged as an adult? Fine.I don't agree with you but make that argument.

    Want to argue that 15 years in prison is long enough for someone who committed this crime at the age of 16? Fine. I don't necessarily agree with you but make that argument.

    But instead her defenders are saying shit like she was forced to work as a sex worker, which very well could be true, but not by the man she murdered. Or they say shit like she was abused and her mother drank while she was in the womb and she's the victim in all of this. What? She's the victim in all of this? Not the man she killed in cold blood while he was sleeping?

    The article you linked said she claimed to be afraid for her life. I'm not saying that it was 'right', but it sounds like a shitty situation all around.

    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.
