Here’s the Question I Asked a Trump Supporter That Actually Changed Their View of Him

I like to think that I’m usually fairly well prepared whenever I go into any sort of political discussion (especially with a Republican), but I’m willing to admit that occasionally I discover some of my most effective methods of debate during these interactions.



For example, yesterday when a Trump-supporting friend of mine who had done their best to avoid talking politics with me actually broke down and asked me what it was about him that I found so objectionable.

The first thought I had was, Where do I even begin

Obviously I brought up his belittling of POWs, mocking of a man with disabilities, his non-stop lying, his childish behavior on Twitter, and the video of him admitting to being a sexual predator. As expected, these were all spun and twisted by my friend who fed me the usual Fox News talking points we’ve all heard his supporters use to defend his vile behavior:

  • He was attacking McCain, not POWs.
  • He didn’t mock a man with disabilities, he’s done that before.
  • He’s not a liar, that’s just what the media wants you to think.
  • I don’t care about how he acts on Twitter, it’s just social media.
  • That was “locker room guy talk” and he didn’t mean it.

Then I remembered my friend had been looking to buy a house and was seeking out a new financial advisor for their retirement and kid’s education since their previous one retired and they weren’t too fond of who replaced them.

So, I asked them this:

If I said I knew a finance guy who promised me that he was brilliant and successful but had filed for multiple bankruptcies; thought it was a great idea to start a mortgage company in 2006; had a long list of failed businesses; accepted a settlement with the Department of Justice after his company was caught racially discriminating against minorities; settled a fraud lawsuit for $25 million after he was sued by former students of a fake university he created to scam people out of thousands; was found guilty of creating a fake anti-gambling organization that used blatant racism against Native Americans in an effort to prevent a tribe from building a competing business; continually lied about why he won’t show his tax returns to prove he’s being honest about his supposed “success”‘; and has been taken to court at least 3,500 times — would you take a risk and put your family’s financial future in that person’s hands?

Their face was blank. Obviously they knew I was describing Trump, but it was also sinking in that there was no way in hell they’d trust someone with all of that on their resume to help them plan their financial future.



Finally, after a few seconds of silence, they simply said, “No, I wouldn’t.”

At which point I said, “Then why do you think a person with flaws like those — and many others — should be in charge of the country?”

“Well, I had never thought about it like that,” they replied.

They tried, but couldn’t spin it enough to mount a solid defense they felt would be valid. They dismissed the fraud lawsuit as Trump just trying to move on so he could focus on “being president” and said they didn’t think it was a big deal he hadn’t shown his taxes. Nevertheless, they agreed that they wouldn’t trust a financial expert who lied about why they wouldn’t prove something that they had repeatedly bragged about.

Did my friend completely turn on Trump? No.

However, they did admit that after thinking about the question I asked them, the way they viewed him wasn’t the same. Then they fell back on the line I’ve heard from many Trump supporters: “Well, he’s president, so we have to give him a chance and see what he can do.”

Would this method work on everyone who supports him? Obviously not. Even though this was a friend of mine, I still had to go item by item to prove each and every incident I cited in my question was true. Plus my friend isn’t as extreme as many I’ve encountered.

In my opinion, I think what made this effective was putting the type of person Trump is to a real-life situation for them. It’s easy for a lot of these straight, white, Christian supporters of Trump to ignore how truly awful he is. But when you make them think about a real-life situation that would directly impact them, that’s an entirely different situation.

That’s why Republicans are clearly terrified to repeal Obamacare out of fear of the backlash they’d experience as millions of their voters would have their health care ripped away from them.

So, for those of you who might take on the mind-numbing task of trying to reason with a Trump supporter, might I suggest a tactic such as this. It might not always work, but this was one of the rare moments where I actually got a Trump supporter to admit that their perception of him was changed based on how I shaped my argument.

Feel free to hit me up on Twitter or Facebook and let me know what you think.

    Saying that trump is racist means nothing to trump supporters. They think that is a virtue.

    • richard sanford

      how about when confounded by your presentation of facts they say, “But what was I supposed to do? I could not vote for H in good conscience” … then I am dumfounded, “good conscience”? based on propaganda, poor people. It’s dispiriting but the struggle continues.

    • Ax Man 66

      Do you believe in affirmative action?All these points have been leftist talking points for well over 100 years and have gotten more than 100 million people killed.How you ask?Well there are bleeding heart liberals and there are leftist who want control.But you can’t just say that so you get the useful minions and tell them and different minority groups how they are getting shit on by who ever they are trying to over thrown or law they are trying to over turn and the minions go out and protest and burn shit and pitch a fit but the are not the ones to fear they just want some one to pay attention to them and there special cause.It’s the socialist/communist that want that disruption to turn to chaos and freedom is taken away to control the chaos.

      • Sharon Nickel Bingham

        The communist you need to worry about is trumps buddy, putin. He owes Russia millions and by delivering America to putin, I’m sure his debt will be forgiven. Bannon has a relationship with putin that is terrifying and he’s trumps top advisor. You should be shaking in your boots, the future of this country lyes in the hands of a man unfit to be in the White House

      • Nancy Lester Fontenot

        I know Hillary got along well with Putin. She sold him our uranium and used the profit for her family. Sounds like you voted for her. Shake the sand out of you ears!

      • Linda

        Nancy can you furnish references to what you accused Ms. Clinton of please?

      • Nancy Lester Fontenot

        Look it up! I already have!

      • Linda

        Well Nancy the following is a web location form Politifact. Your statement is like most of the lies Fox News/Trump told about Ms. Clinton and people like you believed it because is suited the belief you already held that she was dishonest. The only site that I could find that actually accused her of anything evem close to wrong doing was Breitbart and they are not a legitimate news source, more of a rag/yellow journalism like the others you find in line at the checkout in your local grocery store, no truth to them only hyperbole crap. So, you are one of the people who will have to take responsibility for voting for a man that would gladly sexually harrass your daughters/grand-daughters-mother-sister etc. and apparently you are ok with that too. That is so sad to me but you gotta live with that not me.

        craphttp://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/jun/30/donald-trump/donald-trump-inaccurately-suggests-clinton-got-pai/

      • lmcpark

        You can go to any wikileaks and they have all been published. Read it for yourselves.

      • Linda

        Wikileaks is a rag, yellow journalism, conspiracy theories based on 1/2 truths and lies. But if that’s your only source of information beyond Fox News, well I guess you won’t be questioning any of your long held racist beliefs. There’s no heaven either, so when you get dead, your misguided soul shoots right straight out the top of your head and joins the ether, bummer no gold and silver or floating on clouds, just endless ether. One nice thing though the jhadist won’t get their 72 virgins or is it 76 virgins hmmmmmm at any rate, no virgins and all those black souls floating around with you and you can’t tell they are black cause they their soul is exactly like your, no color…

      • lmcpark

        Ha! Ha! Fox news is not my source. In fact, I have a mind of my own and don’t watch tv.! Ha! Unlike the 300 websites Soros publishes to get liberals to believe his lies. Remember he is the real Nazi the left claims Trump to be. Soros hates Jews and Christians but the ironic thing is it’s money he is after. Your money and obviously he is very successful at it. Wake up. Do your own homework but you have to get off liberal websites to find the truth.

      • Linda

        It’s pretty easy to tell, you all have the same talking points. I find it interesting that you are praying for a liberals soul because he/she believed something different than you do and you call it lies because you don’t believe it………but you believe all “the lies” you read and hear but call them truth from whatever source you use. I have yet to call a person on their bullshit that fessed up to getting all their information from Fox or breightbart or raw or that total wacko Jones. You live in Alabama what would happen to you if you suddenly stood up and said

        Hey, maybe some of these liberal are good people, whadaya think bubba? Now that was mean but you get the point Im sure.

      • lmcpark

        90% of my family are liberals and wonderful people. I have one family member who works with the state Department shuffling refugees. My father was a state department employee. Most of the men in my family are veterans from every war since WWll. All of them support our President. One person was invited to the WH for Christmas party. I’m proud of all of them. That’said what makes me so angry when people like you are so disrespectful and arrogant and question everything I say. I don’the care if you believe me but I can’t stand Jones, Beck, O’Reilly, Kelly. I’m not GOP although I voted for Trump. Hell, I even voted for Bill Clinton once and Obama the first time. I bought his bulls****. I think for myself. I do not watch TV and I read honest, articles and I am a critical thinker. Deal with it.

      • lmcpark

        You know what they say about assume you know what people think. I pray for God’s will not my will and I don’t know what God’s will is other than He is in charge not me, not Democrats nor Republicans. I do believe He favors those who pray for His guidance.

      • lmcpark

        You are so uninformed. There are many liberals here and always has been. This is the state of George Wallace. I am no longer a Democrat. Why? Because the culture they have developed to keep the poor down on the plantation.

      • lmcpark

        Actual email’s hacked by Julian Assange. The left used to like him before he started finding out their truth. He’said not done. More to come.

      • Okie_Liberal_Rev

        No, you haven’t. You just saw it in a right wing propaganda Facebook clickbait meme. I can say that for a fact because If you actually “looked it up”, you would know there is no truth to the statement. What amazes me is the number of times Trump / anti Hillary types are willing to go to the mat with really disproven lies. Perhaps it is their PTSD from the Bowling Green Massacre?

      • lmcpark

      • ralph_the_wonder_llama

        Funny how often many right-wingers demand that WE do the research to prove their claims.

        Speaking for myself, when I make a claim of fact on a discussion board and someone challenges me to prove it, I’m always eager to provide credible evidence to back up my statement. Seems to me that’s the absolute best way to support an argument. Right wingers frequently feel otherwise.

      • lmcpark

        Can you believe she acts like she hasn’t heard of this? The whole world knows what Clinton did. Depleted our uranium which will never be restored and of course Putin turns around and sells to Iran for their nuclear arsenal they don’t have.

      • Linda

        well IMCPARK, Hillary wan’t even in office when the uranium deal went down. You might want to tell WikiLeaks so they can change the propaganda they spew.

      • lmcpark

        I didn’t get the info from wiki. I sent you there because it was the fastest. Clinton Foundation which has now been shutdown was the recipient of those proceeds from the sale. Clinton’s are so dirty and they will be indicted hopefully in the next year. Foundation has done terrible things including things you liberals would even hate.

      • Linda

        The Clinton Foundation has not been shut down, you might want to call your source and tell them. The Clinton Foundation has a better track record that even….The Red Cross?…..the money they have collected has gone to the very people that need it the most, while your man Trump set up a university, btw it’s defunct, gone, closed, out of business, not a flaky gambling casino, and did not grant diploma’s, it took money by high powered sales practices and did not delivery any kind of education except the one you get from being fleeced. So Tim, take your own advice read something other than what the right -winged holier than thou GOP tells you to read or say or think. I hate to tell you but you don’t have a lock on good sense, good morals, empathy, looking out for the less advantaged. You support a political party that has proven they are only about money so you are the pot calling the kettle black. Get it it’s a pun, hun.

      • lmcpark

        The Clinton Foundation is going down! They have given less than 10% to charity. They had given contracts $90 million to build 16000 homes for the homeless after the earthquake in Haiti. They actually built less than 1600 homes and the North side of the island where there was no need. But they did build a nice new luxury resort. Imagine that! Where did all of that money go? A money laundering scheme. They awarded $300 million dollars to a mining company to strip mine in South America where they destroyed your precious jungles you environmental worship. But what’she the problem? Just your goddess Hillary. Oh yea, about that uranium we were talking about? That was a sweetheart deal ole Bill made with Hillary and the Russians to sell it to turn it around where Russia would sell to Iran! Surprise, surprise! Let’s talk about Nigeria and Somali. The worst countries in the world for human rights and the Clinton Foundation again worked their magic and again the Clinton Foundation made off like bandits (no pun intended) in that money laundering scheme. Well, by now your little brain may be exploding so I will leave the rest for another time. We will get into Iranian Valerie Jarrett and her funneling money to the Muslim Brotherhood. Let stand not forget about planned Parenthood and selling baby parts too. Nevermind they don’ do real women’s health but abortions are big business. You’re really a faithless feminist so you don’t care about that. Have a wonderful night and go hug a tree.

      • lmcpark

        How many millions of dollars went to Haiti out of the Clinton Foundation. They were to build 15,000 homes for the homeless and they built 1500 homes and two luxury hotels. How many millions of dollars went to the Clinton’s themselves? How much of your money has been squandered. Clinton bashed Trump about North Korea yesterday, saying South Korea is only a few miles from North Korea!!! And Democrats killed Sarah Palin politically about her saying she cold see Russia from her backdoor. Which she never said. Tina Fey did on SNL.

      • lmcpark

        Clinton Foundation

      • lmcpark

        Try Wikileaks. And before you say that is not a reliable source, Bill Clinton called them America’s best friend. Nixon was impeached for less than Hillary Clinton did selling secrets to our enemies. She and Obama both. What was the 2.4 Billion to Iran about anyway?

      • Linda

        it was one of those 1/2 truths you like. You got sucked into believing exactly what the GOP wants you to believe, you’ve been spoofed, lied to, belittled and the whole time all the GOP wants from you is your money, then you can go away because you are of no use to them

      • lmcpark

        How do you know you haven’the been spoofed or lied too? You’very got some real wackos on your side. They difference is I don’t pay attention to them.

      • Ax Man 66

        Delusional much?

      • Muddythewaters

        wow, you just, TO A ‘T, ‘ described yourself and all your other brethren.

      • SageFeldemeyer

        Huh? Trump poster-child: unable to construct a sentence; bathes in hyperbole; and has a deeply ignorant narrative that makes no sense. Sadly, AxMan has hitched his ride with an amoral billionaire who can’t stand America or Americans. I guess lying and exploitation are virtues for Trump supporters!

      • emeraldeyes24

        Thing is you have to be a liberal to understand how liberals think. We don’t need to be ”told” when to act; liberals are far more independent thinkers who think critically and are not afraid to act. We have an innate understanding of what is fair, what is right and what is just – and yes, we are willing to stand up, march, get loud and take the abuse, the tear gas, the flashbangs and yes, the bullets. We can’t help ourselves, we NEED to speak out for the downtrodden, the poor and the maligned. It is who we are.

      • lmcpark

        No, you follow like sheep with not an original thought. Look at who is rioting? Protesting? Vaginas on their heads? Really? Did you see the filth and mess left by the protesters in South Dakota this weekend. The environmentalist. If you didn’t have a protest to go to you wouldn’t have any where to go! The downtrodden? Really? What about the veterans? What about the homeless? How many have you fed, taken into your home? Bullets? Really? You march and stand in the way of emergency vehicles not allowing ambulances with critically ill people to pass through. You are anarchists not protesters. Get that straight! You libs are so intense on destroying a man, the President of the United States before he has a chance to do his job! You are the hypocrites. You make me sick!

      • Ax Man 66

        No you make knee jerk decisions so you can pat your self on the back and when they fail you say well we tried because we care.

      • Okie_Liberal_Rev

        Affirmative action got more than 100 million people killed? Well, you use about as much logic as you do punctuation.

      • Brian Arbenz

        He’s using John Stossel logic: Environmental regulations cost business money, so they prevent investment, so they cost jobs, so they create poverty, and poverty has been statistically linked to dying sooner, SO… environmental regulations kill people. There, now we don’t have to face up to the need to protect the environment . All in one snazzy little gem of a talking point!

      • Ax Man 66

        No dip shit leftist /Socialist/Communist have got 100 million killed.

      • Okie_Liberal_Rev

        No dip shit right wing / reactionary / fascist are still killing millions.

      • Brian Arbenz

        I must have missed the bulletin of the 100 million deaths. Was that the Bowling Green massacre?

    • Stephani Cunningham Stewart

      This is why I am finding it harder and harder to engage in conversation with them (trump supporters) at all My views have changed drastically about people even in my own family I see them differently now *sad*

      • as I’ve said, it’s tantamount to medicating the dead!

      • Dianna

        Me too Stephen, I have a seen a part of people that I never saw before, their true hearts and I want nothing to do with them, even relatives. This is perhaps the only good thing about Trump running, learning the true character of people we thought we knew.

  • Muddythewaters

    I do not believe your story. I have yet to meet a trump voter who would EVER admit anything OTHER THAN the fox so-called-news talking points. And that includes my brother who makes over 125K per year (as does his wife) and lives in a 7K Sqft home in a Denver suburb AND has an IQ of 126. And is addicted, apparently, to Glen Beck. And he left his first wife because she wouldn’t take her meds for her bipolar disorder. Go figure…

    • lmcpark

      Why would you say those things about your brother? Sounds like you are justifying to me. Glenn Beck is not a well man in my opinion. I do not watch Fox News or any network news for that matter but go directly to the source such as C-Span, Congressional record, Congressional hearings, Senate hearings but I don’t suppose liberals take the time for that. By the way where do you get your news? Rachel Maddow, Mathews? Ha! Ha! Ha!

  • Betty Weaver

    My question is: don’ t you pick you friends by their words and actions? Would you pick a leader by any less?

  • Nancy Lester Fontenot

    There wasn’t any racist bigger than O bama, Who has blind eyes?

    • Jaid Black

      how? that’s another talking point w/o facts to back it up.

    • scatternerd

      Source? Unbiased, preferably. Because I know Fox would say some drivel like that, but they’re barely news as is. Breitbart is no better.

      • lmcpark

        How do you know what Fox says?

      • scatternerd

        Shockingly, not everyone feeds off of only news that fits their narrative. It helps to know what the other side focuses on to help round out your opinion, instead of pidgeonholing yourself into an echo chamber.

    • emeraldeyes24

      Can you PLEASE point me in the direction of just ONE RELIABLE SOURCE that demonstrates that President Barack Obama [the finest, most intelligent and strategic president America has ever seen!] was racist!

      • Linda

        she can’t emeraldeyes cause she gets her info from Breitbart and Fox news me things and is a racist too.

      • lmcpark

        Well, it started with his beer fest with the police, then it continued with inferring loudly, that police were all racist. They needed re training! Black Lives Matter ring a bell? But all of this is irrelevant as Obama was and still is a puppet for puppet master George Soros. Soros pays the money for protest, riots and Obama stay silent. Not once did he stand up for white Americans. He was President for everyone but ignored a major part of the population. Alex Soros, Georgy’s son was the leader of the march at Berkeley.

    • Okie_Liberal_Rev

      Ah, something else you “looked up”? Here’s a starting point: look up the word “racist” in a real dictionary. Post how you see that applying to actual things he did out said. Just for fun, you could look up “gullible”.

      • lmcpark

        Look it up yourself and quit putting others down. Are you a real reverend or just a pretend one like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?

      • Linda

        Pretty interesting how telling it is that you picked the only two black men who identify with a religion. Hmmm does that make you a racist? Cause I can ad about 14 different “preachers” who are very white and taking money from people who can ill afford it but you picked the two black men who have the courage to stand up in public and speak their mind.

      • lmcpark

        How old are you? I know many wonderful black men and real preachers. They don’t live off the backs of the poor but preach the gospel.

      • lmcpark

        You are right about everything you said except the racist part. Democrats throw out that word about anything they disagree with. There are many, many black leaders who are outstanding and they did it on their own. You just want to be obstinate. I can’t name them all but Sharpton and Jackson are crooked and have always been. They stir up problems when there isn’t one. Stop with the racism.

      • Okie_Liberal_Rev

        Nice ad hom. Just shown yourself to be a) uninterested in an informed discussion of the issue, and b) too lazy to look up that I am an ordained minister with a 4-year Master of Divinity degree from a Presbyterian seminary, and c) that you don’t actually care about ordination credentials because both Jackson and Sharpton have even better than I. You are simply the repeater of inaccurate idiological blather from your right wing radio host masters. Ministers serve God. You serve Rush and Alex.

  • Jennifer Garcia

    I copied your statement to your friend. I’m going to carry it with me in case I need it for reference.

  • Key22

    Or if you had a 15 year old daughter who is a model – would you allow her to spend the weekend alone with Donald Trump? Wherein the DT has full diplomatic immunity and will not be charged no matter what he does. Would you send your daughter with Trump or Obama – the hypothetical cases make the cases. If I ran a business with Trump – I would only do business if he paid in cash (and I would check the bills vigorously and he would have to pay all the money up front). It’s easy for mainstream Republicans to shift to a Clinton – she is basically a Reagan Republican – her voting record implies that and so did Bill Clinton – the two parties were fairly close – center and center right. Now it’s whackadoodle right or right. Heck even the Bush family supported Clinton! Indeed, Clinton lost because she is too right wing for a large number of democrats who sat home. Bernie needed to be on the ticket – he set records for individual donations – those folks would have went to the polls instead they sat home.Probably 10 million + more votes had he been on the ticket. But no use now. Trump is in whether people regret their votes now or not. Every day, it’s like Picard on the bridge of the Enterprise – Damage Report Number One. And the damage is big, more shields (walls) captain!

  • Brian Arbenz

    Thank you, Allen Clifton! Excellent and inspiring. There is hope of at least dislodging his supporters from their prejudices. Will keep this!

  • ralph_the_wonder_llama

    I’ve taken to asking Trump supporters: “if you owned a casino in Atlantic City, would you ask Trump to run it?”

    Not a one has actually answered the question. I don’t know if it changed the way any of them view him, but it was fun to watch them squirm.

    • lmcpark

      Of course. He is a very astute businessman. How would you run several billion dollar businesses? Trump does not need this job. He could retire and live comfortably. He’s not taking a salary. He has cut the cost of Air Force One. He doesn’t need the anger directed a him for the nonsense you believe. He doesn’t need the hate spewed at him. He loves this country and our vets which is refreshing for a change where our military was depleted to before WWII conditions and made us a target for our enemies. Shame on you for thinking you know what kind of businessman Trump has been.

      • Linda

        he did run several billion dollar businesses…….right straight to bankruptcy court. Do yourself a favor and read a book.

      • lmcpark

        I don’t need to read a book. He filed bankruptcy chapter 11 three times which for your information was a restructuring of businesses which is perfectly legal and honest set by federal judges. The businesses were all high risk casinos. Maybe you should read a book and not be judgmental as you accused me.

      • lmcpark

        Bankruptcy is a legal business tool we’very already been through this. He has a lot more successful businesses. As a business women I can respect and understand his understanding. I also have heard him speak twice so I get more info straight from the horse’show mouth not soundbites from the media that hate him. You should read George Soros book. I have read plenty.

  • amr16

    This subtle racism has existed for a long time in America, having lived in the South and Midwest. Psychologically these people have not had any leader confirm their racial tones, now they do. Attacking what they perceive as their “savior” will only make them dig their heels in, a child-like response. There is an underlying reason this hatred has come to the forefront, Mr. Obama was the first African American President. This frightened them into believing that their “white” world was coming to an end. King Trump and the Empire(Republican party) bought the election long before it started. The Empire pretended to be against him knowing this would lead those who did not want to be affiliated to this Republican Party candidate refuse to vote. We have always known we really do not vote for the President and VP, it is the electoral voters who do. Choose your fights, resist whenever possible, they used our laws against us, use them for us and remember in the end whether King Trump is impeached or loses the next election, we are still left with those same Trump supporters.

    • lmcpark

      I live in the deep South now and have grown up here. I have lived all over the country and traveled the world. Racism has not been as bad as this since the 1960’s and I was a teenager then. I saw it. I lived it. Your King Obama divided this nation and gave a new meaning to the word racism. Most people do not even know what it means.

      • Linda

        racist and don’t know it? The GOP divided this nation you idiot when they said they were gonna make sure President Obama they didn’t pass any legislation he proposed so………since that is true and they sat on their hands for eight years, exactly how is that President Obama’s way of dividing the nation.

        Obama divided our nation from the beginning with his racist crap. He alienated half of the country and became the President in half, those who supported him and those who didn’t. He is the first president to do that. He supported the anarchist, the BLM against the rest of the nation and our firefighters and first responders. Our military was disrespected and broken. Even today our military tanks, aircraft, and equipment is in some cases well era. Our Navy is the smallest since before WWll. He woukdn’the salute his guards, he wouldn’t greet the bodies of deceased soldiers coming home from war. The main job of the US GOVERNMENT stated in the Constitution is to protect it’s citizens from terrorism both foreign and domestic. 70 countries have very strict borders and you better not cross them illegally or it is death or at the least many years in prison. Not us. Come on in South America, Central America and Mexico. Come on in terrorist. We have a legal system set in place for 200 years to bring immigrants into this country and help them assimilate. We can’talk do that if we don’the know who is here. We cannot accept illegals. ILLEGALS! They are breaking the laws. We have veterans who are suffering at the hands of this lunacy. We have homeless, and children who are suffering. I don’t give a damn about illegals and how they had a specific plan to send their children across the border with mules knowing our soft government “couldn’the turn their parents away”! All nefarious, we’ll thought out plan to overburden the taxpayer. We won’t even talk about the $19 1/2 Trillion debt. This is why I am so angry. The left’side issues wouldn’t be an issue and we could all get along if they didn’the ram everything done our throats. We care about our environment. I have a family member who works for them. We just don’the believe the crap being pushed down our throats. My husband used to build the environmental control systems for power plants in particular Arizona Public Service. I’very been around. I have friends in high places. I’v travelled the world and everytime I came home I wanted ro kiss the ground I walked on unlike Obama who was on his apology tour for all the bad we did.the one thing I never did was throw my kids under the bus to other people. I took care of it in private.

      Bu** Sh**. His incompetence and constant barrage of racism turned people away him. Not to mention his extravagance and never-ending golfing.

    I have never heard more ignorant, judgmental people in my whole life. Facts don’t matter, just destroy someone because of lies others have told about them. I think you are all bullies. May God have mercy on your souls!

        I have earned 104 thousand bucks previous year by freelancing online a­­n­­d I did that by w­orking in my own time f­­o­­r 3 or sometimes more hrs a day. I followed a money making model I stumbled upon online and I am thrilled that i was able to make so much money. It’s user friendly a­­n­­d I am just so grateful that i discovered this. Here is what i did… http://statictab.com/8cx4rgs

      What lies would you be talking about? Trump’s lies about whether he knew his National Security Advisor was talking to the Russians before the inauguration? Since he’s said he knew about it and that he didn’t know about it, he would have to be lying, since those things are opposite.

        Trump said over five years ago that he sent a team of detectives to Hawaii to investigate Obama’s birth certificate and the advanced news they were telling him was shocking. Trump was to release the details soon. Trump lied, he never released the details.

      • Serafina Calise

        That is because Obama released his birth certificate and POTUS idiot TRUMPETTES in this country forgot Hawaii is part of the USA and also did NOT KNOW Puerto RICO IS COLONY OF THE U.S. and are U.S. citizens……

        You are listening to the media again.

    • Zennoby

      How stupid can you get?
      Fair question.

    • Serafina Calise

      Imcpark You too are judgemental extremist and a divider…no help to USA.

      • lmcpark

        I am not judgmental. I am not divisive. Anything but. But you are judging me without knowing me.

      Then you haven’t listened to a Chump supporter.

    “Well, he’s president, so we have to give him a chance and see what he can do,” is cognitive dissonance at its best. It’s the equivalent of buying a new car because it looks cool foolishly while failing to research reviews and then,after it turns out to be a lemon, defending your obvious foolishness by refusing to admit that you screwed up and by offering excuses for the manufacturer’s poor product all while praising the paint job and the upholstery.

I followed a money making opportunity I stumbled upon online and I am amazed that i earned so much money on the side. It’s really newbie-friendly a­­n­­d I’m just so happy that i discovered this.

      But….if the car is arranged in a position where it continually travels downhill, then it might just be counted on to deliver us there!
