    Wow. They just protest and protest and protest. When does it stop? When do they report to work and or school? Oh wait....these are people that have nothing better to do and can't be bothered with the banalities of school and work. My bad. Just keep matching and whining. You're making a "big" diffence out there. And yes, I know it's Presidents' Day so schools have off but they'll back at it basically everyday for the next 4 years so bleh.

    And guess what? He IS your president. So, so sorry. :)

    Sorry. He is the so called president. He is.not the real prsident. The real president is in Moscow right now.

    This idiot is crossing the line everyday. He insulted everyone. Including respected federal judge, he makes up stories to justifying his action, he attacking the media. His national security advisor got fired.

    He is too ****ed up as president. He is not a prsident, he will never be.

    Peaceful protesting, questioning your elected officials, etc etc is one the most American things you can do. Blindly following the guy who got elected is not. (And yes, it goes both ways, JK)

    If he's "not their President" then great. We heard you and get it. Now please go shut the heck up already go to WORK and stop blocking traffic, etc. and go about your life. The rest of us don't care that you don't feel he's your President. We, the intelligent members of the US of A know he won, he is in fact our President, the President of the entire country and your whiny butts are just coming across as exactly that and now really at to the point of silly.

    We'll clearly remember "he's not your President" when you come asking him for Federal Aid should you need it. I would also welcome you continue to pay more in taxes when his tax cuts hit too, etc.

    Protesting non stop about anything Trump does including the way he picks his nose is going to have the net effect of turning people away from the democrat party and making protests on real issues not be noticed at all.

    Oh another protest? Ignore.

    I think it's helping the democrats. It proves they do have balls. Something that was lacking the past 8 years when they refused to stand up to the republicans. Trump will hurt the republican party long term. The longer Trump is in office he will continue to drag the party back 50 years.

    The democrats caved on the ACA by listening to the republicans, who then refused to vote anyways. They caved to Obama on spying on americans. They really went against their values for most of the decade. It wasn't until the past 2 years when they went back to civil rights.

    Meh. Easy to sit on the side lines and mock. Much harder to take a stand for what you believe in.

    Good on the protesters. I hope they keep being a pain in Trump's rear.

    Most of the US is centrist and rejects the ideas of the far left. The most vocal people in the Us are not the majority.

    You know today is a public holiday in the US. So people don't have to go to work?

    Given all the conservatives think the protests are bad and are saying so they must be effective.

    Like anyone with a brain knows -- if you're a citizen of the United States, he is your president, sooo... :confused:

    Ah, well. I'll have a great day chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool, shootin' some b-ball outside of the school, knowing that the candidate I voted for is in the White House. :D

    For real who misses that show?

    I remember when the right said the end of the US was in the not so distant future when Obama was elected. The doom and gloom is always entertaining though.

    To be fair the right runs on the platform of doom and gloom.

    They got sick of the dime store retail politicians and were faced with a choice of Trump and the equivalency of what amounts to Political royalty (ie...the Clinton's). It's one of the reason's Bush didn't stand a chance in the primary (another political dynasty). One side was able to purge their royals, the other rigged their system to ensure theirs won.

    The left doesn't? Try even talking about reforming medicare and SS and the left will have the 30 second spots up showing grandma eating cat food before the ink can dry.

    And the Trump family isn't royal? They having ****ing buildings with their name on it.

    The Trump campaign was built on doom and gloom. This is how they get the old people to vote for them.

    Which has been the biggest BS distraction to the severe economic inequality. But all Democrats care about now is people with degrees. So you better have one or be in the process of getting one or at best you'll be a civil rights pet project for a moment.

    Most of the protests have been on weekends when school and work isn't in session for them. But either way - why does that matter to you. How they spend their time is none of your business. Maybe you feel threatened?
