    After this bullshit w/ the GOP senate nominee from Alabama having sex w/ a 14-year-old girl and listening to the right-wing pundits justifying it I believe their real problem w/ Clinton was that Monica was an adult. They hated him and wanted to put him in jail for getting oral sex but they were completely fine with voting for an admitted pussy grabber who also wants to bang his daughter.

    So, more comedians, more music, more books, but ignore global politics because it doesn’t inform or affect your life?! So, what is it that comedians joke about, musicians sing about, and authors write about, if not the world around them....which is created by the politics in your life.

    You can dismiss Trump as a lark, but you would be a fool to suggest that it is “just a laugh.” Then again, you are quoting a pissant comedian with a podcast as your guiding light on life, so I’m not sure why I’m wasting my own time trying to convince you otherwise?!

    It was touching, so more sexual contact than sex, but don’t worry...he won’t drop out, he WILL get elected, and he will be one of the 100 most powerful people in the US in a few weeks!!

    And you guys think the people with the guns, who voted from Trump are crazy?! THIS IS THEM!!

    He will absolutely win. He’s the the pro-life rep from Tennessee who was is a married doctor who had sex with a patient then was recorded telling her to get an abortion. He won like 58% to 42%.

    He is smart. But he runs Team Rensi Motorsports now. That'd be part of NASCAR. How do you think the bulk of his compatriots feel about Trump?

    He's talking his book.

    People in the UK, often joke that a pig with a red rosette would win a seat in parliament in some staunch Labour strongholds, but the USA takes this to a whole new level.

    So the fiscal year for Trump started on 01st October......so any 'good news' on the economy was down to prior legislation done by Obama. Trump has passed NO fiscal legislation
    Unemployment was on a downward trend under Obama (despite Trump saying it was as high as 15% it wasn't. It has started to tail off now but that may be due to the hurricanes.
    No meaningful legislation has been passed under Trump only executive orders. Trump critisised Obama for passing too many Executive orders 9which he had to do because in Obamas second term he was hamstrung by the majority Republican Senate / congress.
    EXECUTIVE ORDERS are not legislation, they are instructions and can be undone by an instruction from a future executive arm (which is why Trump has been successful in rolling back many of Obamas.
    LEGISLATION has to go through and be approved by both the Congress and Senate (the legislative arm) and then by signed off by the President (the Executive arm) unless a veto proof majority passes. At all times it can be challenged the the courts (the Legislative arm) if it is deemed unconstitutional.
    Supreme Court nomination I'll give him...but that was a seat stolen from Obama due to Republicans refusing to even discuss a replacement a replacement for Scalia. So if the Republicans had done what they should have done Trump wouldn't even by nominating a SCOTUS
    TPP was already dead due to opposition across Europe.
    Border security ... I can't answer this one. Either the same number are entering but not being caught or less are entering because of the new regime and their view of extradition.
    Diplomacy has been a disaster. USA has lost its place as a leader of the free world. State department in the USA was extremely large under Obama / Clinton but this was a deliberate policy of the administration to rely on diplomacy rather than the exhibition and threat of the military.
    Flints a scandal that has being going on for years caused by a decision to take water from another source to save costs. A number of the town council are now facing criminal charges. In fact Obama administration donated in excess of $85 million to the state to help them solve the crisis.
    Government agencies are still without leadership and many vacancies exist for the top jobs however there doesn't seem to be a plan in place for closing them down so difficult to state what the strategy is.
    Energy rolling back of green legislation will hurt the people of the USA and the world. However since taking power the number of people in coal mining jobs hit its lowest point ever and since then only 300 have been rehired . The reason for this is because in the USA fracking is a big thing and gas is extremely cheap. As a result many of the power plants have retro fitted gas powered turbines and are obviously not going to go back.

    They were investigating the Clintons for the Whitewater affair and found no evidence of wrongdoing however they did turn up Bills affair with Monica. They hated him so much the began impeachment proceedings against Bill Clinton for an act of consensual sex between two adults.

    It would now seem that its ok to touch up a 14 year old (against the law) but not ok for two grown people to engage in sex outside of marriage
