The irony that Col laughs at someone for believing Hilary would win, then turning round and saying #Donthecon will be in office another 6 years. Let’s see how he fairs when the special council files his report. He’s toast.

Now I wait for Col with the predictable :crazy :crazy

You read far too many newspapers aka Democratic puppetry.You gotta stop drinking the cool aid.

when John Howard went idiotically to the Right he got thrown out by the Centre, I wish Trump would come here and lead the LIberals so they will get wiped out just as Republicians are about to - that would occur before elections

Hillary and Don the con are equally criminals. The difference is, Hillary is intelligent enough to know how to hide her crimes. Trump is clueless and does them in the open.
Trump isn't clueless at all, he's just untouchable! He doesn't bother to hide his crimes because he knows he'll get away with them.

It would be more like name one crime that he has not been suspected of - he is already threatening to incite civil unrest. At least Serena has provided something positive for all her faults whereas Trump has only help bankrupt genuine people. In the link provided in Borey Sunday it is mentioned how he has unprotected transactional sex, that is deemed to be the most dangerous type, then went home to his missus. As his son was only recently born then we can presume that him and Melanie were still active in the cot.

He tried to hide his crimes but is as hopeless as Eddie Obeid - who is married to a cousin of mine but hasn't seen in about 55 years.

The Trump bashing will never end. The media are puppets for cash. If you want to look for a president who should have been convicted of crimes in the modern era, two stand out, Ronald Regan and George W Bush. Both puppets for the big banks. Between them they did more damage to the American Economy than Germany did and continues to do, to the rest of Europe.
Do I like Trump, no he is an idiot. Do I like the Clintons or others, no they are all a nasty lot with hidden agendas. But here is the funny thing, apart from the natural disasters that seem to be more frequent in the US of recent times, the US economy is actually growing. Their issue like ours is the accumulated debt mainly thanks to George W Bush.
I still laugh at the desperation of the non Trumpies that Russia rigged the US election. If they would of got off their asses and voted Hillary most likely would have got in. But no it had to be Russia. :roll

You are failing to cover all angles. Hilary could have won in spite of Russian interference if more got out to vote but that does not say that foreign interference is desirable or permissible and you have failed to condemn it. You also have missed saying that Hilary may have won if there was no foreign interference. Instead you do an immature eye roll. Hilary did win the popular vote by about 2.9 million votes but due to the electoral college system she did not wins the number of reps. The electoral system was designed to prevent the slaves from voting. Comey also can be blamed for bringing up the emails again that weren't being re-investigated.

Don't laugh at the desperation of non Trumpees because some people, not even Americans, are concerned at the state of America and how it effects the state of the world. I still maintain that America is rightfully native "indian" so why should I care about the whiteys - but like all countries there are many very honourable people there such as McCain. Internationally affairs speaking McCain was dumb and very limited but he was honourable and has to be respected for being such as opposed to Trump. America's reputation around the world is being undermined by Trump. China and Russia are thrilled by the damage that Trump is doing. Trump is assisting climate change - that are currently wrecking havoc across Asia. Look at the big picture.

Still waiting for the crime people.

Record employment for blacks and latinos. Wages rising by about 3%, record consumer and business confidence about 86%. Stock market at record levels. North Korea disarming its nukes. Tax cuts for all. Record number of judges appointed. Business regulations cut by 2/3rds. New trade deals with Mexico, Canada, and the EU.


There is a lot more. Check it all out if you really want to know the full list. Here is a tip, do not check it out on cnn, MSNBC, abc, and the other fake news sites. You will not find one.


Some people want to ignore the above and talk abour porn stars?


Wow.

How about that meeting with Russian officials in 2016 at Trump tower? Since when is conspiring with foreign governments to win elections legal? Then there’s obstruction of justice admitting he fired Comey over “the Russia thing”. Trump being so open about these things is an attempt to normalise them so when the time comes and he faces the music, the electorate will have his back.

I’m wondering when he’ll provide evidence of Obama spying on his campaign.

Watching the left and the Hillary hand wringers STILL holding their grudges . . . after all this time, and after all the genuine progress Trump has made . . . . and finding minor points to water down the major steps forward Trump is making, reminds me of the Monty Python skit in Life of Brian.
The one where the PFJ ( or is it the JPF ?) are having their meeting to gripe against the Romans.
" So apart from the roads, public health, sanitation, public order and the aquaduct, what have the Romans ever done for us ? NOTHING !!!
The thing that makes me laugh is that after seeing the great progress Trump has made for the US economy, they can't bring themselves to pay credit towards Trump. Instead, you hear such pearls of wisdom as "but he still has orange hair".
Lol, just Lol. On the day of the US elections . . when it looked like Trump was likely to win, I said to my children that this is the first time in 25 years that the left and the PC have been told "NO". And wondered how long it would take them to get over it.
And we are still waiting and wondering . . . . . . .

Federal employees were due to get a 3% wage rise and Trump opposed it saying the country could not afford it but he does not mind the big end of town massive tax cuts

The difference between the US's tax cuts to the big end and our attempt here in Aus, is that this is what he went to the people with before he got elected, a plan to create new industry, revive existing industry and "make America great again". Here we just had a mob who decided the top end needed millions more in their coffers.

With pay rises the unions will represent the workers over there, no different to here.

The USA lowest wage is about $7.25us and one hour a week employment means employed. In Australia it is approx $18.75. Australia due to worker contracts is heading USA downwards. I am glad that I am not a young person today concerning wages.

however, regardless 'big lies' from 'their ABC' and other assorted economic ignorants or ideologues, led by Krugman et al, tax cuts or 'trickle down economics' worked every time. QED :)

The good news for all the Trump haters and the Clinton supporters is that they will have another six years to get over their TDS.
