    It seems the hashtag #NotMyPresident is trending and has the Trump supporters with their panties in a twist.
    It seems we are being deliberately divisive even though Obama NotMyPresident delivers a ton of similar content.

    Hypocritical much..?

    Does anybody know how the story really goes, how the story really goes, or do we all just hum along..?

    well here goes..... I am one of the silent majority that sent Hillary and her status quo back to reality. Donald Trump won because Hillary, the Democratic Party, the media, etc etc. wanted to appeal to the minority of the population, whether it's college kids, african american's, latino's, muslims etc etc etc this IS the minority of the population and while they should be given equal space in the political world that isn't exactly what is needed for getting things done. Trump appealed to the middle class (if there is such a thing anymore) blue collar America, who if they are lucky to have a job are struggling paycheck to paycheck to make ends meet while the minority groups are "gifted" freebies and discounts at every turn. We the people are tired of standing in line at the supermarket clipping coupons and eating cheap food while some welfare recipient is gifted money for steaks and chops and good food. Try and find a job and go up against minorities where you are just as or more qualified and lose out because of quotas and fear of discrimination charges. try and apply for energy assistance or free storm windows when you have 2 people working to pay bills and have your next door neighbor with 4 kids from 3 fathers get free oil, new windows, and electric bill paid for because they can't work, all whilst their drug dealing boyfriend or husband rides around in an Escalade and skips out when inspectors come. I could go on and on how the middle class gets shit on. Working class America is tired of getting shit on from everywhere and we are so desperate we'll take a chance on anything or anyone. So Trump wins and it's not like any of the alternatives were any better. The only person who might have made a better choice got shit on and screwed by the Clinton machine (Sanders) but then again he turned around and bent knee to the Clinton's anyway. Trump is no different than any other average American, he says things that most of us have said or at least said to ourselves. I'm willing to give it a chance as what has been there hasn't done a damn thing for me and many of the people I know. The majority of us get shit on every day, our country gets shit on by every other country on the planet...everything he says is 100% accurate, just he is the only one with balls to say it out loud. We as a country have become pussified just so we can say we are politically correct...fuck politically correct. Hopefully he'll surround himself with good people and only if all cooperate we can make some change. if not we'll vote in some other bozo in 4 years. I can almost guarantee Michelle Obama runs for president in 4 years. I call any of you Americans out there if you're life is great good for you...keep up the pissing and moaning about Trump. if you want something better support your government and try and get some change going for the better...if you think Hillary Clinton was the answer you are very wrong.

    I hope it turns out well. Probably everybody hopes it turns out well.
    But I fear it is an awful mistake with terrible consequences for Americans and others around the globe. Unfortunately, if it does turn out badly, the ones who will suffer most are those who are already at the bottom of the heap. Trump will be fine in his tower; the little guy will take the shit.

    I find this funny any hypocritical by many...... Trump (tv star, alleged womanizer/abuser) crucified, chastised, written off as a failure before even getting into office. 3 of the highest ranked and liked presidents in the history of the US Ronald Reagan (movie star, written off before ever getting into office), William Clinton (shady schemes, proven womanizer & abuser), JFK (notorious womanizer) get a free pass in the eyes of most.

    and this is different in what way from what HAS been going on?

    we get laughed at and shit on by every two bit dictator in the world and we nothing

    we get laughed at by our allies to our face and behind are back (which they rarely have) BUT when they are in a jam what's the first number on speed dial 1-800-HELPMEUS

    we have a small group of radicals running us ragged all over the planet and do nothing but play patty cake

    we have the top 1% and the bottom raping and pillaging the working class at every avenue

    we have healthcare for most but have to eat hot dogs and beans and tuna fish to afford premiums

    and on and on and on.....

    So you thought a reality TV star and failed casino owner with zero experience and qualifications was the one to do it..? That's strange.
    Maybe if Pauly Shore or Snooki had bungled a few businesses opportunities, maybe they could've been our next Prez.

    1 & 2. So what's he going to do...? kick everyone's ass and have us in perpetual war til the end of days. Friend & foe alike...?
    3. So are we just going to invade every country harboring these people and blow them up, making even more terrorists along the way...?
    4. So let's hire one of the elite assrapers to fix the problem. Not a real great leap in logic.
    5. So him being a businessman, he's just going to walk into a room and declare that prices are cut by a half or more?

    I understand the frustration but I honestly (as your friend) don't see what you think he's going to do.

    He's going to get into fights with both the Repubs and Dems, cut taxes for the rich, bungle ISIS like everyone else has
    and pat himself on the back for any minor victory doing anything he can along the way...


    ...and by Presidential order, put his name in big red letters over the White House.

    1 & 2 isn't that what we have been doing for the last 2 decades

    3 isn't that we have been doing for the last 2 decades

    4. get the freeloaders off the freebie wagon, get the top 1% to pay their fair share, get jobs back and better pay...all can be done with cooperation

    5. healthcare can be available for all fairly if it compromise can be made including insurance companies, pharmaceuticals, and a lot of these special interest groups

    He will only get done what the rest of Washington allows...just like anyone else. Obama has done nothing for me over the last 8 years so anything is an improvement. I'm willing to give him a chance. Hillary had her chance many times over and dropped the ball...only time will tell

    Like Frosty, I hear the anger in what you say. This guy seems like a desperate gamble, but if people are desperate, understandable. One thing bothers me, though. His record, his behaviour, his statements all suggest that he has no interest whatsoever in the little guy. He has said he will change the tax system to favour the rich. He managed to lose almost one billion dollars (some businessman) and then boasted how clever he was for avoiding paying any income tax for a decade. He has a long history of not paying his suppliers, of dubious business practices, and so on. And he doesn't seem to cooperate very well. His track record is of confrontation and ultimatum. His way, or no way. If this is to be your saviour....
    And if he disappoints...

    I fear the outcome and the consequences.

    so you thought a life time politician with 30 years of experience and various qualifications, who also has had major bungles, lies, and other controversies over those 30 years of experience was going to do it......well they didn't in the time they were there what makes you think it would be any different this time around? how many do overs do you get before you try something new?

    Don't get me wrong Trump wouldn't have been my first choice. I thought Kasich would have been a good choice, even Bernie. I even think Pence would be a better choice, but those ships sailed long ago. Given the choice of what was there, I'd take Trump and give it a chance.
