    Well Al, exhibit A:

    http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/ma...-maryland-graduation-gore-20180520-story.html

    Get over it already.

    And Hillary? Show up in the Midwest. Pretty damn simple. But no, Russia!!! Ah ha!!!

    Some other help, maybe just be a likelable person... you’re not even funny.

    If either of them was even remotely non-robot they would have stood a chance. Then again, both followed a stooge where everyone had had enough.

    In both cases, unelectable and entitled. Emphasis on the later.

    Sooo much butt hurt.

    I just can’t believe Al Gore hasn’t gotten over it. What a bitter old man.

    We are scraping the barrel to keep the "us vs them" thing going aren't we? The trouble with America today is the great partisan divide. Talk about getting over it.

    Yes, these two are the bottom of the barrel. Pretty shallow barrel though. Very fat around the edges. Piles of uselessness all round it.

    The left vs right thing. The endless bait threads just to continue a pointless debate about how one side finds the other sides actions pathetic and reprehensible.

    It's getting old and doesn't really add to any constructive conversation, and is a waste of time. Are we here to have conversations about issues of interest and importance, or just are we here just to find things to complain about regarding the "other party"?

    Carry on if you must.

    Trump supporters are the biggest bunch of sore winners I have ever seen.

    I agree. When they say get over it, to me what they are really saying is "why can't you just accept our guy and his point of view"?

    It really is baffling that Trump supporters expect the rest of us to just agree with what he does and says and don't question his decisions. It's almost like we are insulting them and disrespecting Trump because we don't agree with the GOP's vision for America.

    I started taking your comment seriously, until you gave a thumbs up to your buddy calling Trump supporters the biggest bunch of sore winners. I mean c'mon man, we can see who gives a thumbs up. At least be discrete about if you you wan't to have a non-partisan talk.

    I try to balance any news that I get. I frequent any site that provides an interesting article. What I do like to do is compare each site's information and focus. Depending on the topic, CNN, The Washington Post, NPR, and others will slant towards the left, while Fox News, Brietbart, Drudge, The National Review and others will focus on right leaning topics. It's all a matter of dissemination. I learn what I can from each site and try to get to the truth. Not an easy task.

    No, it's not. I also read a variety of outlets. I do not care for Infowars, the guy is a cook. Breitbart is just reposing of conservative view points, not really news, so that is a waste of time for me. I do read the Huffington post and WAPO a lot to see the liberal thinking, also gatewaypundit and zerohedge. Only read fox when it's linked to a reddit article. I get most of my info from https://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/, also I think there's an anon poster from the WH, who feeds clues to the trump supporters on the internet called "QAnon". I go to https://www.reddit.com/r/greatawakening/ to read the latest Q drops, as a lot of them end up coming true.

    I think Trump supporters feel the weakness of their position. They are in the minority and don't feel comfortable with that, for they fear losing status at many levels. The 'butt hurt' comments (really? sexual assault is funny?), is their way of reminding the majority that they have power, at least for now. If you think they are sore winners, what until they lose. We'll be back to discussing fictional birther conspiracies.

    Hmmm, talk about putting unwise credence into anonymous sources.

    Probably about as accurate as the crap we read on Fox and CNN.

    Lately my interpretation of "us vs them" is that it's superfluous to actual accomplishment and at least in here is evidenced by people starting threads over the absence of which no one was pining in the first place.

    Feel free to provide examples of liberal meltdowns (like this thread for "conservatives") everytime McCain or Romney made an speech or public appearance to the tune of "make sure to vote next time so this Obama thing is over soon".

    Until than -> "biggest sore winners" it is.

    Drumpf and his supporters are probably lashing out because they thought what he did on the apprentice was real, that he built his business from scratch and he was a good negotiator. It turns out, in fact, that he's been good at conning people.

    And apparently, he still is.

    I imagine most people thought he'd storm in to Washington, make deals, shake hands, put both parties on notice, drain the swamp and hire "the best" people.

    Instead, he hired more conmen and theives, lies, rips off the taxpayers, golfs a lot, eats a lot, tweets a lot, watches TV a lot, and probably laughs at his good fortunes.
