Some presidents certainly fucking do. If he wants government officials and employees to stop tweeting he should lead by example.

Quote:The newly amended bill eventually passed the House of Representatives at 11:19 PM EST on Saturday, November 7, 2009, by a vote of 220-215. The bill passed with support of the majority of Democrats, together with one Republican who voted only after the necessary 218 votes had already been cast. Thirty-nine Democrats voted against the bill. All members of the House voted, and none voted "present".

Facts - use them. Drinking Beverage

Not sure where you got your "facts" but the official total was 219 democrats and ZERO republicans.

You must be referencing one of the drafts before the final vote.

Sounds like Steve Bannon was registered to vote in two different states. Too bad we can't deport the racist asshole.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

You are exactly right; I stand corrected.

Well, Hitler was temporary. His rule didn't last long.

Also Trump is no Hitler. Second one was fanatic putting ideology first (even taking into account his deal with Russia). Trump is just power hungry politician with big ego.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

I don't think he's *just* that. He's also a rabble rouser and a dangerous lunatic.

I concede the point. Still, he's no Hitler.

I think he may well achieve similarly disasterous results through incompetence and aggressiveness towards those who wound his pride.

He is a version of Hitler, albeit he is mentally defective in a way that leaves him vulnerable to being manipulated as well as digging his own grave by being unable to let any slight go.. he will turn against his own people and they will bring him down. Hopefully just before the two year mark, so when Pence enters the office, we can have an election changing the house and senate to democratic, rendering him a lame duck.

In the long run, we will have to change the political system and add parties. The two party system has become a quagmire. It just doesn't work, there is no dialogue.
