See, I could care less about the wall itself. I see it as a boondoggle, much like many other political promises. What I do like about Trump is that he uses the powers he is granted to get the things he said he will do done, whether I happen to agree with them or not. He is not making law by executive order (this again was NOT an EO, and is apparently about to be overturned), he doesn't want to do so. He is letting the Congress and Senate do their jobs. The shutdown that started because of the budget could have been easily solved had the House done it's job, but the TDS has everyone not doing it just because "Trump wants it done". He said repeatedly that if the House would do it's job, there wouldn't be a shutdown. I have issues with choosing the wall as the reason for the shutdown as just a few years ago they approved 25B for the very same wall. At this point, what's another 5?I see the problem even when I was a teen I would hear about it about those who employ illegal aliens to work in their houses, on their houses instead of contractors, in fields etc... to take advantage of them and to also save their money because they are paying them a lot less than they would pay a citizen.
So there are quite a few problems around the entire issue that the lawmakers should address but to say “ oh crap all of sudden now this is a national emergency so we must back this guy in this” nah wouldn’t personally go there. It’s a complex ongoing issue that some mid evil wall isn’t gonna wipe out so all of the lawmakers should do their job and address it no matter what a candidate and now president boasted about or promised those who suck in his every word and promise.
It seems as if politically he has backed himself into a weird corner with broad promises and in a way put some of those that support him or the party in a weird corner trying to in various ways back some of his mess. Terrible situation imo socially and politically if one pays attention to it daily it’s borderline draining.
I’m not a Republican by any means but damn man hopefully with some of this crap this guy constantly has going on he doesn’t in the end historically leave a nasty stain on the party or become the face of it for years to come The Party of Trump. Imo it does none of us any justice and all things considered with him will cause a lasting divide. I think the only way around that is if for some of his mess to be called out from within sometime not this weird silence, blind eye, excuses or bending to back him in some cases. Idk man starting to ramble and go all over the place more Old Camp for me and time to get off of here.
It is, as always, smoke and mirrors.
I saw on MSN this morning them saying that "Fox news dropped the Stormy Daniels story even though they had it first" trying to make that as though they're in bed with Trump.
No, it was a non story. Him having sex with her in 06 is not a legal issue, it is not a reason to not be President (I refer you to Clinton and Kennedy, both of whom had sex with EVERYONE), and it was a non story. No matter how much they (lol) trump it up. it had NO BEARING on the presidential race, or his ability to be President.
Same with the witchhunt for the Russian Collusion. It's not a thing. Their star witness is set to go to jail for LYING TO CONGRESS. And that's their main witness. They're relying on the general public not knowing that, and using it to muddy the water. In the end, no proof will be found.
ALL of this is wasting time in an attempt to get traction for a 2020 candidate. We have Socialists and Communists in the running, and that just doesn't fly with anyone with an actual brain. We have states attempting to go to the popular vote of the state telling them how to vote, instead of using the districts which are balanced out, and I am going to laugh when it doesn't go the way they want (and that will happen eventually).
It's all bullshit at the end of the day. The wall, gun control, "immigration", etc.
