    As opposed to those who are obsessed with finding some reason to go against the president.
    Popular Vote
    Tax Returns
    Stormy
    Moscow hotel room
    Russian collusion
    Cohen
    Manafort

    What is it today?
    His huge tax cuts for the super rich (which conveniently includes him and his buddies)
    Gutting environmental laws and regulations
    Eliminating regulations on financial institutions which is likely to result in a collapse similar to 2008 at some point
    Encouraging/feeding off extremism
    Attempts to make healthcare less accessible
    And just his general smug, arrogant, ego driven self promotion and attacks on anyone not in line with him

    That’s some of the stuff today. Probably be similar tomorrow and the next

    This will trickle down, even to you. The rich do not just sit on the money. Money always moves. OK. You don't believe that.

    Gutting environmental laws and regulations

    Laws that accomplished little and cost tons. You can make every American give up their cars and walk to work, turn off every appliance they have. We can do everything you wish and bring the country to a standstill…but until China, India, Russia, Brazil and all the others change their ways, whatever we do will have no effect.

    Eliminating regulations on financial institutions which is likely to result in a collapse similar to 2008 at some point

    You have no idea this will happen.Last one eliminated many weak banks that are no longer there.

    Attempts to make healthcare less accessible
    Most of what BO promised never came to pass. Healthcare for my employees skyrocketed. (Guess what happens then:my prices go up to cover it) Trump is trying to make it more affordable for all of us. OK You don't believe that one either. But remember what Pelosi said…"We have to pass it to see what's in it."

    just his general smug, arrogant, ego driven self promotion and attacks on anyone not in line with him
    This is true. I don't care for that about him either.

    ………

    Is there anything he has done that you support?

    Right. I guess children would do that.

    And you were the one who did that.

Unfathomable! Planning. Preparing! Working with her team?! Doing her job!?! Can. Not. Compute...Am. Not. Impressed!

    Weirdos. Obsessed weirdos

    It's not like she was asking questions no one else was capable of asking. They were pretty simple. It's just that she chose to use her time in the way she did. Not grandstanding. Not being hysterical like most of her Republican counterparts. Not making it about her or putting on a show. Just asking simple questions and getting simple, yet important, answers. Easy stuff.

    It's just that everything is so broken, especially in congress, that everyone is floored when they see something as cut and dry as this.
    This is the same hypocrisy they employ in every thread. Argument after argument, you read it and it's like wtf when have they EVER complained about this before? Since when has reading off a paper there ever been a legit criticism of a politician? lol, what does that even mean?
    RAIDERS, SHARKS, WARRIORS

    No one is complaining about this kid reading off a paper or a screen. They all do.

    What is annoying is awarding this kid brilliance when she is in all likelihood reading what someone else prepared for her to read.

    Again…if she is so brilliant, why is she working as a bartender? Why couldn't get a brilliant job in her field? I keep hearing about her degree in Economics…why not work in that field?

    She is not all that sharp. She is well spoken, very outgoing, makes a nice impression (until she speaks on her own) but smart…I don't see it.

    She's like all those smarmy activists everyone loves because the tweek the establishment's nose and get away with it. Back in the 60s, turds like this were a dime a dozen. They eventually, and thankfully, disappear.

    Everyone reads off papers and everyone is awarded brilliance by their supporters. What's the problem?

    It's a term that started when I was in high school and I'm nearly 30, so yep.

    I guess the problem is awarding brilliance when it doesn't exist.

    I guess the problem is giving credibility to someone who doesn't deserve it or who hasn't earned it.

    Do you know for a fact she is reading what someone else prepared? How do you know she didn't prepare her questions herself?

    This is actually a common thing Lawyers do. They write down all the questions they wish to ask a witness before the trial starts.

    Not to mention, she still did a better job asking the questions than all the other congresswomen/congressmen, so why can't they do as good as her at reading prepared remarks?
