    Hopefully he will be able to right the ship & clean the garbage out of Washington & also repair the damage Obama has done for the last 8 years. That is what is awesome. He is not part of the establishment.

    I'll keep a weary eye on things.. Things have to change here around the state. Change really can't be bad here and there.

    White House press briefing about to get underway.... I'm betting this may be one of the most watched presser ever! Lol

    Trump signed an executive order that states that the United States has offically withdrawn from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    Yep like it or not he's wasting no time doing the things he said he would do.... He also reinstated the ban on federal funding for international abortions, which isn't surprising it gets reinstated or removed depending on the party in control.

    Yep and some voted to repeal Obamacare when Obama was in office, those same senators voted not to repeal now that it would actually get signed into law..... window dressing at it's best/worst right there. Just goes to show you all politicians have an agenda: too keep their power! Like it or not it's why Trump won, people are fed up with politicians. Fact is if the Dems had run someone with little to no political experience they would have probably won no matter what their agenda, majority are just sick and tired of politics

    Folks,
    I'm not a Trump fan at all but I'm also certainly not an Obama fan. But I couldn't stop LMAO at this guy, a spot on Obama impersonator repeating some very well-known Trump lines in a serious manner on Bill Maher's show. This is one of the funniest things I've heard in years. I'm putting this out there for pure entertainment rather than to take sides:

    Well I don't know why I came here tonight,
    I got the feeling that something ain't right,
    I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair,
    And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs,
    Clowns to the left of me,
    Jokers to the right, here I am,
    Stuck in the middle with you.

    Two wrongs never make a right, but the way this has been handled is embarrassing. You have to call it like it is, and not hide from doing so.

    So just to play devil's advocate here and to stir the political pot...... :)

    I'm no Trump fan (although I personally approve of some of his agenda, getting Gorsuch to the SCOTUS a win imo) and I know Trump is not the best orator by a long shot but what did he do wrong over the weekend? He called out hate groups, sure he said both sides, which is not entirely incorrect. He came out Monday I believe and named the groups by name which obviously wasn't enough... As I recall Obama never called out groups on the left, for example BLM, in fact he invited it's leader to the White House. Shouldn't all violence, all hate groups regardless of their political affiliation or beliefs be called out?
    Not to mention I think it's funny that Neo-Nazi groups are somehow "connected" to conservatives, last time I checked they are Hitler supporters (socialist), they despise Jews (similar to radical Islamic terrorist who by the way if you call them that your a racist), they are communist supporters which is the exact opposite of conservatism and I assure you someone will read my comments and thank that I'm sympathizing with the white supremacy groups which I am not.

    Oh and while I'm at it why is Nationalism so bad, why has this been connected to racism now.... Nationalist are people of all race, religions, backgrounds, etc that have a love for their country, it's offensive to me as a conservative, white male, that every day I have to hear that conservatives are racist. That somehow or another because I have conservative views I "relate" to the despots of the world that spew hatred and violence such as those white supremacy groups did over the weekend.

    All hatred needs to be called out and all violence, no matter the cause, must not be tolerated
