I wonder if Donald Trump has the ability to reflect on all the terrible things he has done to and said about American citizens over the last four years.

Trump had no respect for Black people, with tasteless remarks. He called Mexican people who've come here from Mexico thugs, rapists and murderers. He made fun of handicapped people and made unkind remarks about gay people, too.

Trump showed no respect for women, often making vile remarks about them and their appearance. He said our dead veterans were suckers and losers.

Trump totally lacked empathy for family and friends of those lost to COVID-19. He's responsible for taking children from their mothers and locking them in cages at the Texas border.

What did he expect on Election Day? For everyone to rush to the polls and vote for him after he insulted and labeled everyone and called them names? No. Deservingly so, there will be no party and parade in his honor in 2021. The recent presidential election made that very clear to everyone.

I wonder if John A. Gonzales realizes what he wrote is pure nonsense based on Democrat Party talking points.

Trump has respect for Black people. He did not call all Mexican people thugs, rapists and murderers - only the thugs, rapists and murderers. DUH! The rest he called "good people".

He did not make fun of handicapped people. He did make fun of a reporter with a handicap but not because of his handicap. The man had forgotten what he had written about Muslims celebrating the falling of the twin towers on 9-11-2001. Trump made fun of his faulty memory, not his handicap.

Trump respects women. Remarks are made about SPECIFIC individuals who happen to be women.

He did NOT call dead veterans "suckers and losers" THAT IS A LIE! And you are foolish for repeating an blatant fabrication.

What do I expect? I expect people to do their own fact checks and separate facts from political rhetoric. That may be beyond your intellect.[innocent]

Craig Mason

You probably shouldn’t be talking about intellect Carlos, because you yourself have been fooled by a flashy snake oil salesman. Maybe Trump didn’t do all of those things but he did out of his own mouth, say on a hot mic, that he grabs women by the pu$$y because he is famous. He also couldn’t denounce white supremacy when given the opportunity to do so on national tv. That is basic to being president. That is the starting point. Just like you would not want a teacher or daycare worker who couldn’t denounce pedophilia. That is the starting point to be president, you must not believe that one race is superior to another. Without that denouncement, it was a non-starter for many people.

David Hardee

Craig, if you are a full male it is impossible that in a conversation with a bud that you did not at sometime pronounce your technique or the conquest of a female using less than gentile verbiage. The HOT MIC proves it was not a statement for publication.

To the White Supremacy Denunciation - when anyone uses that term they have proven themselves the ultimate purveyor of a hypothetical creation that is the product of a simple truth which their diabolical mind concocted to irritate their brethren and the stupid fellow followers.

Where are the fundamentals that support White Supremacy? The proofs exist in the fundamental fact that superiority DOES exist. Superiority exists when the power source is located in a specific entity. An entity can be a classification of size or strength or speed etc. So when using the term White Supremacy we are in the classification of the human races. When in a society there is a specific race that is the majority that is an automatic position of power by numbers. Any race that is less by numbers will be inferior in power and resentful of disparity, of privileges, and consideration That resentment is a natural human/group feeling of depression. The depression of a person/minority is naturally reflected outward to the source of power/majority. Ergo the hypothesis/term White Superiority was a creation of a diabolical mind trying to not have to admit the source of the depression is being less powerful/inferior.

The clever diabolical(s) concocted the term/hypothesis WHITE SUPERIORITY and added the word SYSTEMIC. Because our society is inclined to be benevolent we do not declare that there is a SYSTEMIC BLACK INFERIORITY in our society.

Now, Craig, are you a full male and subject to the normal male using less than gentile verbiage sometime?

And do you have an argument with my description of the genesis of White Superiority?

Please respond, David. . . .

Carlos Ponce

Craig, you're the one who has been fooled.

Carlos Ponce

Craig Mason posts: "He also couldn’t denounce white supremacy when given the opportunity to do so on national tv. " Trump did at least TWENTY times. Even during the debate:

CHRIS WALLACE: But are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia group and to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities as we saw in Kenosha and as we've seen in Portland.

DONALD TRUMP: Sure, I'm willing to do that......

And he tried to continue but was interrupted by Chis Wallace and Joe Biden.

Craig, maybe you need to check your hearing.

Craig Mason

Maybe?

Carlos Ponce

If you missed the over dozen times Trump denounced white supremacy, either you missed it or.......[whistling]

Re African-American and Mexican voters: Mr. Gonzalez will need to explain how a brazen racist like Mr Trump, who spent four years pillorying minorities, managed to increase his percentage of minority supporters since his first presidential bid. Among blacks, Hispanic, Asian. All up. Doubled his support among black women and those who identified as gay. Didn't they get the memo? Surely four years of the Left's drumbeat should have taken root and yet...

I think Mr. Biden is just the fellow to sort this out for them. After all, he is smart enough to know if they were dumb enough not to support him, "you ain't black".

And who would know more about not being black than a rich old white guy?

Gary Miller

Mr. Gonzales> You are as good at repeating liberal spin as I have seen. I've watched and listened to Trump for over four years and have never seen or heard anything like your blather. More Mexicans, Blacks and women voted for Trump this year than for any Republican ever because they respect his love for them.

Charles Douglas

I agree! Trump had no business calling African-Americans predatory, and I think he was insanely racist when he call African-Americans a JUNGLE SOCIETY of people he did not want his kids going to school with and his family being around! So then....he stood against equal education, integration, and bussing for years!

That was also why he helped filibuster the civil rights bill, and voting rights act in Congress! OH "SCUSE" me, .."SCUSE" the [censored] out of me,....that was not Trump, but that Was Old Joe 10%, who was mentored in the American Senate by other KKK RACISTS, like Senator James Eastland, Senator, Robert Byrd, [ Grand Cyclops of the KKK], Senator Strom Thurmond, of South Carolina, and Senator Fulbright of Arkansas, who also mentored Bill and Crooked Clinton!

Then what really BUGS me is there are some who will say this man who was apart of all that, and wrote laws which were use to incarcerate tens of thousands of young African-Americans unproportionally to prison,....and the same man stood up and gave a eulogy for Senator Byrd the KKK Grand Cyclops, saying he was the BEST man he knew, .....some say this man is NOT A RACIST!

See how much they believe in that inferior education, and bad schools they set up in Minority ghetto neighborhoods being pumped out for decade after decade? They will say and print anything expecting what they say to be believed. Like I said, it is all about protecting that minority vote, with that glass ceiling, protected by welfare, and food stamps! The rapper Ice Cube's eye sight is improving, so is Lil Wayne's.

They are beginning to see that invisible Plantation of limitations set up to maintain boundaries & limiting prosperity, job opportunities, and wealth distribution which I saw years ago, and made sure my two son saw it too! SLAVES, statues, and the Confederacy don't mean a thing to me! Things I value are hard work, education equality, diligence, and taking advantage of open doors and opportunities standing in my way and around me!

That way of looking at things worked well for me, and my family, but that is just me! If another want to waste his life thinking about SLAVES, statues, and General Lee' nem, I will respect their choices, and request that they respect mine!

Ted Gillis

Craig, this group of responders are like spiders waiting for you to casually land in their web. Stay calm. If you quit wiggling they will move on.

Carlos Ponce

Ted, I'm waiting on the FINAL results but I will respond when something absurd is posted.[innocent]

Bailey Jones

The answer to your question is "no". Trump has no ability to look beyond himself. He is a narcissist. Also, #worldsbiggestloser and #worstpresidentever

But don't worry about Trump - he'll be just fine in whatever country he eventually finds sanctuary in. Who you should be worried about are all his loyal followers - the Trumpuppets and Trumpoodles - who have been duped by this conman, and who are now so far down his rabbit hole that they may never again be productive members of the American electorate. They are the ultimate victims of this degenerate president.

Carlos Ponce

Be patient, Bailey. You may have to eat those words .....and you've posted MANY.

Charles Douglas

I think one of the reasons the LEFT hates D.J. Trump with a golden passion is not because of the lies they say he tells, or the womanizing he was supposed to have been involved with, but because he came out strong for Minorities and African-Americans! They hate this man for loosening their grip on monopolizing the the votes of bamboozled and deceived minority voters! The more uneducated African-Americans are the better the LEFT likes it! Remember, ...this all started back in the Ante-bellum South before the Civil War!

There were laws forbidding the education of SLAVES. There were hash penalties for those who disobeyed those laws too! Anyone who sided with SLAVES back then was hated by those who controlled SLAVES back then. I have not seen in my life, ..hate to match that kind of HATE until Donald Trump came to the Presidency! I have lived a long time and NEVER have I witnessed the SLAVERY type hate for a White man rise to the brand Trump is receiving now!

I will also say the only other WHITE man who the LEFT/ SLAVE OWNERS have come near to hating as much as Trump ...was Abraham Lincoln! Note that both Lincoln and Trump were guilty of the same crimes to them, helping SLAVES/African-Americans get free! Lincoln freed the slaves and Trump came in bridging the gap for minorities in wealth, education, jobs, etc. Essentially, Trump was on the way to doing exactly what Lincoln did!

He became a threat to the Mordern Day Slave Plantation the LEFT has maintained & guarded for decade after decade. The way it works is they bring in those who are acclimated to keeping African-Americans and Latinos down, they allow crime to engulp their neighborhoods unchecked, they, support bad education, supply plenty Anti-liberation methodology, against self help. They make sure they use the Lyndon Johnson model of progress suppression! That model was to give minorities just enough to stymie their complaints, and give them plenty government subsidies to make them happy ..thereby killing any dream of walking off the plantation.

Lyndon Johnson is reported to have said to a group of his Dixicrat Segregationist, and Racist associates, " I will have these ( N- Words ) voting Democratic for the next two-hundred years!" What are the results of the plan people like Senators, Eastland, Johnson, Thurmond, Biden, and Byrd put in place? I will tell you. The majority of African-Americans have been voting for Democrats so long many of them can't give a good reason why!

Just what Lyndon Johnson figured! He was very powerful in the Senate. Johnson voted against any Civil Rights legislations like integration, busing, equal housing or any others which came to the floor, even as Majority Leader for years, until he decided he would run for President. This is why they went to the extreme to frame, lie on, spy against, conspire against, excoriated, persecute, hate, and vilify Donald Trump!

Trump came in like a wrecking-ball, demolishing the Political SWAMP, which included the way the military operated, how they fought wars, and how African-Americans were handled! There is no other American, living or dead, other that Abe Lincoln who have known this type of hate which Donald Trump has incurred from the LEFT, All because he tried to help Free Minorities and treat them as equals.

Notice the fake-hate on this board coming from the LEFT. Making up stuff and repeating untruths and hearsay like they were facts, basing their venomous hatedness against Trump off of conjecture and unproven information coming from Tainted Hateful Democratic Media Superpacts. For many that is by deception ...the goto reason for hating Trump, but the real reason THE LEADERS of the LEFT hates Trump and wanted him out,... was his tearing away at the destruction of the Plantations holding onto African-American Political Support & Votes!

I wish I had the concession stand on kool-aid.

Carlos Ponce

You would drink it all, Thomas Carpenter. What's that? You already have? Figures.

Bill S.

Here is my issue with the whole, “let us all be a United States again” that we heard from Joe Biden.

For the last 4+ years, the Democrats have gone scorched earth. You have salted the fields and now you want to grow crops.

The problem is 72+ million of us have memories longer than a hamster.

We remember the women’s march (vagina hats and all) the day after inauguration.

We remember the 4 years of attacks and impeachments

We remember “not our president” and the “Resistance…”

We remember Maxie Walters telling followers to harass us in restaurants.

We remember the Presidents spokesperson being kicked out a restaurant.

We remember hundreds of Trump supporters physically attacked.

We remember Trump supporters getting Doxed, and fired from jobs.

We remember riots, and looting

We remember “a comedian” holding up the President’s severed head

We remember a play in Central park paid with public funding, showing the killing of President Trump

We remember Robert de Niro yelling “Fuck Trump” at the Tony’s and getting a standing ovation.

We remember Nancy Pelosi tearing up the State of the Union Address.

We remember the total in the tank move on the mainstream media

We remember the non-stop and live fact checking on our President and his supporters.

We remember non-stop in your face lies and open cover-ups from the media.

We remember the President and his staff being spied on.

We remember five Senators shot on a ballfield.

We remember every so-called comedy show turn into nothing but Trump hate fest.

We remember 95% negative coverage in the news.

We remember the state governors asking and getting everything they ask for and then blaming Trump for their problems.

We remember a Trump top aid verbally assaulted in two DC restaurants.

We remember people banging on the Supreme Court doors.

We remember that we were called every name in the book for supporting President Trump.

We remember that Hollywood said they would leave after Trump was elected but they stayed.

This list is endless, but you get the idea.

My friends will be my friends, but a party that has been on the attack for 4 long years does not get a free pass with me!

Ted Gillis

Carlos, waiting for the FINAL results. I have an image of Carlos waiting up in the bleachers after the game is over and everyone else has gone home. The staff and volunteers are picking up trash around his feet, while he patiently waits, all by his lonesome self, for the final scores to be published and broadcast by the UIL. That’s “good old by the book” Carlos for you.

Carlos Ponce

You will be surprised, Ted!

Ted Gillis

So Bill, you have been keeping a list have you?

Hopefully this is just a parting shot, as you will not be holding any grudges for the next four years, Right?

Practice what you preach.

Bailey Jones

Funny tweet I saw -

"Is anyone really surprised that Donald Trump is trying to force himself on us even after we said no?"

Carlos Ponce

False premise. Trump is not trying to force himself on anyone.

Bailey Jones

Oh. See, I would have expected you to go with "Trump is a serial sexual predator" as the false premise, since that's the premise of the joke. "Trump is a serial sexual predator but not in this case" is more subtle than your usual arguments.

tick tock

Carlos Ponce

"tick tock"? Oh, I see. Bailey is awaiting Trump's second inauguration.[beam]

Bailey Jones

It's a pop culture reference, Carlos. No one expects you to know it. (Hint: Samuel L. Jackson)

Ted Gillis

No, we’re just waiting on what Rudy will do next. This freak show can’t get anymore amusing than it is right now.

Carlos Ponce

Rudy Giuliani was a US attorney. What you saw today was tantamount to an attorney's opening statements in a trial. What's interesting is Dominion has disappeared, their offices emptied......
