I want to cry. Donald Trump has been one of the best presidents in the history of this country. But Democrats have persecuted him mercilessly. He can’t get out the door fast enough to suit them. Now they want to impeach him. They would tar and feather him if they had the opportunity. They would pursue him with bull whips and daggers if they thought they could get by with it.

On the other hand, Joe Biden will reduce this country to the level of Venezuela.

Well, America, you will get what you are asking for.

Where are you getting your information, Ms. Schmidt? It seems very untrue to me.

freeride, I do believe Biden will do a better job than Con Don did, if he doesn't he needs to go in 4 years. Lets look at the greatest economy, I will ever see in my lifetime, with Con Don's leadership and how it is as he leaves office this week. These are just a few of the problems Con Don has left us. 6.7% national unemployment, 900,000 signing up for new unemployment claims this week, its been around 800,000+ new sign ups each week nearly all summer, 3 million less jobs now than when Con Don took office, National Debt raising by Trillions, had to pay the farmers over $28 billion to make up for tariffs against China, bread lines miles long. Military, Took money from the Defense Department and the Servicemen to build the Wall. Mexico was to pay for the Wall, but they didn't contribute a Dollar. Pandemic. Over 380,000 Americans dead from the "Virus" in less than a year. As I recall, you like other Republicans said the "Virus" was just a little worse than the flu. You said the Flu killed between 30,000-80,000 a year, looks like the "Virus" is a little worse than the flu. After Con Don gave his prescription of injecting yourself with disinfectants he decided not to wear a mask and hasn't mention the "Virus" since Dec.8,2020. Warp Speed now dragging to nearly a stand still, compared to what Con Don's Administration said would be vaccinated at this time. No use in continuing to show how bad Con Don left the Country, you can see it for yourself.

driller,Your comment only shows your continued ignorance and willingness to twist what we all know are the facts. Yes Trump was the president when the China virus was exposed to the world including the U.S. but to try and blame him for what happened after it started is beyond stupid, it is actually a show of unbridled hate for someone you don't know. Like the N@zi's treated the jews and everyone else who disagreed with their murdering beliefs. I would advise you to go back to grade school and learn to read above a 4th grade level and indulge yourself (if you can stay focused that long) in some great historical literature that reveals the eventual outcomes of countries who enslave their citizens and destroy their God given rights! Countries that cheat in what they call democratic elections, countries that tax the people to enrich the elitists, countries who secretly murder anyone in opposition to their dictatorships. Good Luck!

Driller

freeride, Keep deflecting and whining! You are showing exactly what I have said about the Cheerleaders for nearly a year. When you can't dispute what I say, and you know it is true, you start to deflect and tell me how stupid I am. Why don't you tell me I am wrong, on what I said is happening to our Country now, under the leadership of Con Don. Maybe, in a few hours we will get a leader that may be able to fix the mess up of another Republican President. This makes two Recessions in a row that has left Democrats to fix what the Republicans have messed up.

Driller

freeride, I don't think you are that stupid, maybe you are, how to find out about the Proud Boys. I'm not going to tell you, you can figure it out yourself or ask your Dr. wife , I'm sure she might tell you to look on the computer.

freeride

driller, so you don't know jack about the proud boys or how they started or what they stand for....you only know what CNN lies to you about. My Dr. wife is way too busy helping sick patients overcome whatever illnesses they have to worry about the proud boys......don't you wish you were smart enough to do that instead of spreading b.s. about Trump and the 75 million patriots who voted for him?

Driller

freeride. If you are too stupid, and (I believe you are) to turn the computer on, I imagine your Dr. wife has to do that for you, you can get a lot of information about the Proud Boys. After your wife turns on the computer for you, all you have to do is type in Proud Boys and you will get information on them without looking at CNN. Why should I tell you about the Proud Boys, since I think you are a member of them or Qanon. Does your Dr. wife still work without wearing a mask? Where does she work? Who has to spread bs about Con Don, just watch the videos and what he says, if you can get him out of the White House to say anything. I'll remind you, over 80 million people voted for Biden and Con Don is a LOSER.

Driller

Satan aka Holer, If you never heard of the Proud Boys until lately, where have you been? Evidently you never watched the debates, "ole" Joe Biden knew who the Proud Boys are. This shows you Fox only tells half the story, Brian is on 3 hours a day, Mon.-Friday, condemns the Democrats daily and beefs about Antifa and BLM, but then he knows little to nothing about the right wing fringe groups. Like I told you before, if you don't know you're talking about don't talk at all.

bishopsboy

Dearest Driller, good afternoon and thank you for sharing your perspective on recent events. Thankfully, I work full time (55-60 hours per week) and consequently cannot spend any time watching morning TV Monday thru Friday so I can neither confirm nor deny your accusations against the commentators on Fox News. As I posted earlier, until several months ago, I had never heard of the Proud Boys, nor do I really care to know much about them. However, since Democrat Party extremist groups such as the Chinese Communist Party, the Ku Klux Klan, BLM, and Antifa have much, much larger memberships who have engaged in frequent violence, insurrection, and domestic terrorism for the last 8 months, it's obvious why others are more familiar with them.

As always, I wish you peace and blessings. May your day unfold in a pleasant and joyful way.

Driller

Satan aka Royal Holer, Knowing of the Proud Boys, being a Republican defender, it looks to me like you would be interested in most of the far right wing nut organizations. Why try to defend people and organizations that you know nothing about?

Driller

Satan aka Royal Holer, You claim you work so many hours a week and can't watch morning TV. How can you post at like 6:55 AM this morning. At that time you could be watching Fox and Friends, and I bet you were and do.

bishopsboy

Dearest Driller, thank you for your concern and well thought out question. I left home this morning at 5:30 am, arrived at work by 6 am, and between meetings took a moment or two to leave a short post. No mysteries there my dear fellow truth seeker. Thank you for asking and many blessings to you.

"Trump Praised For Accepting Election Results 4 Years Quicker Than Hillary Clinton Did"

LVW

Cute, but she conceded the day after the election, so that doesn't really float.

DeftCurmudgeon

That's what she said in public but she, Obama and their pals in the derp state spent the next 4 years trying to undo the election so there's that.

LVW

Ahh, the "deep state" defense. Trump didn't suffer at the hands of this imaginary force any more than Jimmy Carter (the other DC outsider who became pres in your lifetime) did. Trump was his own undoing. But don't fret; maybe he'll start another game show you can watch.

Driller

Deft, At least she said it. Con Don hasn't showed any Presidential Protocol. At least Obama had the decency to show Con Don the respect that an incoming President deserves and show him around the White House. Con Don hasn't done anything! This is another reason Con Don and Melania are sore LOSERS and jerks.

sbsheridan

Soooooo untrue. Trump is accepting election results now only because he is being forced to do so. And Trump's attempts to change those results through the courts and in the minds of citizens over the last two months constitute a tsunami of denial compared to a ripple of disbelief by Clinton and her associates.

sbsheridan

This letter is a perfect representation of its subject. The writer seems intent on placing blame for the animosity, discord, chaos, and hunger for violent retribution now running through our country on the media rather than on Trump himself. Shame on you! What president hasn't been criticized by the media? Didn't Trump encourage such criticism with his speeches and his incendiary Tweets? Hasn't Trump himself contributed to "dark" internet sites that call for murder and mayhem? Shouldn't Trump accept responsibility for the actions he has taken? Great leaders do not destroy the organizations they are leading.

bishopsboy

Dearest Susan, President Trump had been in office less than 20 minutes before the WaPo sneered let the impeachment begin. How fair is that to an incoming President? Can you really blame President Trump for disliking the media?

How would Zero and liberals have reacted if Fox News had proclaimed let the lynching begin 20 minutes after he took office? Would you blame Zero for hating Fox News? I won't because of the unfairness and contempt. Even Zero wouldn't deserve that.

LVW

Bb: You have a bad memory. Fox News: how an anti-Obama fringe set the stage for Trump: 'Shortly after Barack Obama was elected president, Roger Ailes, then the chairman and CEO of Fox News, moved into action.

“I see this as the Alamo,” Ailes said, invoking the 1835 battle for Texas’ independence from Mexico. ... The election of Donald Trump eight years later would go on to be regarded as Ailes’ greatest triumph: an apex of the politics of grievance, largely rooted in race and nationalism, that Fox News dedicated itself to as America was led by its first black president.'

bishopsboy

LVW: Did Fox News push a Zero impeachment at any point in his presidency or did they simply air more negative stories and commentary about him than the googly-eyed MSM? The WaPo pushed a Trump impeachment immediately after his inauguration. There is a difference.

sbsheridan

Are you saying that the sneering was in the 1/20/2017 edition of the Post? Or was it 1/21? I cannot find it either place. In what form was this statement made? An editorial or other opinion piece? And what about Mitch McConnell's comment shortly after Obama's inauguration in 2009 that the responsibility of the Republican Party was to see that Obama became a one-term president? As for fairness, how does that figure into freedom of speech? If Trump is that sensitive to criticism, he should never have run for president in the first place.

bishopsboy

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2017/01/20/the-campaign-to-impeach-president-trump-has-begun/

sbsheridan

Bishopsboy - Again, I ask you to please read these articles more carefully. The reference you sent to me (below) reported on two groups that sprang up at the time of Trump's inauguration in 2017. This was NOT endorsed by the Post; the Post was not "pushing for impeachment" -- it was reporting on evens that occurred on January 20, 2017. Such nuances make an enormous difference!

bishopsboy

Dearest Susan, look at the context in which the partisan hit piece was written. I can’t help you much more than that.

moondoggie1951

You forget that Obama and The Clintons were not criticized by the media they were made out to be Gods.

LVW

Delusion on parade! A dose of reality for you: "One of the best presidents in history" will be referred to as "disgraced, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump" in the future.

Donald

When one looks at who and what controls America’s cultural and social institutions, and major media organizations, you are probably right, Mr. LVW. It is an establishment thingie and it does not like those who pull back the curtain and expose it to the public for what it is.

And, while Mr. Trump and his family will continue to be targeted for destruction after he leaves office, the Americans that voted for him will continue to be socially and politically targeted as well, characterized as being even more a basket of “Deplorables” than they were before and even less redeemable and must be made to pay a price for their disobedience to the status quo. After all, they temporarily interrupted the reduction of America to just another market. Bummer.

LVW

You've really got that "elites" schtick down, don't you? Well, sometimes a duck is just a duck, and sometimes an uninformed megalomaniac is just an uninformed megalomaniac.

bishopsboy

LVW: Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, T. Roosevelt, Reagan were all called worse things than that. If Pelosi and the current crop of misfit Democrat Representatives had been running the House back their days, they would have all been twice-impeached too. A dose of reality is that impeachment has ceased to serve it's original function becoming nothing more than a partisan retribution tool to be used against a President the Left and elitists despise but can't defeat on a level playing field. President Trump should be proud to stand tall among the greats. (P.S. stop channeling Don Lemon and Hillary Clinton).

LVW

Bb: More partisan conjecture without proof? It's become your bread and butter.

freeride

LVW, in all honesty do you think Biden and Harris are going to do a better job for America than Trump did? I'm talking in all categories...economically, militarily, the pandemic, civil unrest, violence in our cities, immigration, climate change?

Driller

Satan aka Royal Holer, If Con Don is one of the great Presidents, your bar is very low. 6.7% unemployment, millions of people out of work, first time unemployment applications at 180,000, again and at that rate for nearly all summer. 3 million less jobs now, than when Con Don took office, first time in history a President has lost jobs during his Presidency, bread lines miles long, over 379,000 Americans dead from the "Virus", Con Don not mentioning the "Virus" since Dec. 8,2020, The hospitals having no beds for people including in Republican States. Con Don inciting his people to try to overturn an election he lost, by attacking the Congress and the Capitol Building, leaving 5 people dead. He loves the mob and they are special. He wanted his supporters to hurt Pence and Pelosi and other members of Congress. He still doesn't take any responsibility. These are just a few of the things that make Con Don the worst President to hold the Office. He is really standing tall as he becomes the first President to be impeached twice!! What a great President.

BTW, Brian, on Fox and Friends admitted this morning he had never heard of a lot of the right wing groups that were at the Capitol on Wednesday. How can a man that beefs daily about the Dems and what is going on in the Country, has no idea the names of these right wing groups? What a hypocrite or idiot or maybe both! Have a great day!! I hope you find the truth you a trying hard to find.

bishopsboy

Dearest Driller, good morning and greetings to you. Once again, it is a pleasure to gain insight and glimpses inside the mind of someone whose opinions often greatly diverge from my own. Yes, I agree with you, the CCP’s biological attack on our country has indeed wreaked havoc both in loss of life and economic impact. I’m sure you agree with President Trump and me that the Chinese Communist Party must be held accountable for their unprovoked and unwarranted assault on our country and the rest of the world. The CCP certainly personifies the evil of socialism with death and misery as its offspring.

Unfortunately, I disagree with your last paragraph where you state a news commentator should know the name of every bat-crazy wingnut group of a dozen mostly big-mouthed insurrectionists. I can’t say that I’ve ever heard of the Proud Boys until recently and only because they were mentioned repeatedly by the Press.

Peace, prosperity, and blessings to you, dear truth seeker.

freeride

driller, I have heard of the proud boys....can you enlighten us on who they are, how they started, where they come from, how many members, what they believe,?

DeftCurmudgeon

Only by the Trump deranged half of the country.

The rest of us are now the... resistance.

sbsheridan

As far as I can see, the only thing you are resisting is the hard work required to improve your education, your knowledge of the world, and your on-the-job achievement. You might also consider increasing your participation in volunteer organizations that help other people, as well as your empathy for people in all walks of life,

moondoggie1951

I guess that you never noticed how great the economy was until the virus hit.

sbsheridan

Excuses, excuses. What actions did Trump take to lessen the impact of the virus on the economy?

Driller

moon, Maybe if Con Don would have let the experts lead the fight of the "Virus," rather than coming out on stage day after day acting like he knew what was going on, until he said inject disinfectants into your body. After that Con Don didn't want to wear a mask and he acted like the "Virus" didn't exist. The Task Force briefings ended. Maybe if he would have publicly tried to show how bad the "Virus" was and how we needed to fight it, the economy might not have gotten this bad.

freeride

moondoggie, of course sheridan noticed, but her jealous hate for a man she never met or had any interaction with made her bury her head in the sand....her fear of peer pressure didn't help either.

prodigalson

I agree totally with my good friend Bishopsboy Carroll. Excellent letter! President Trump has certainly been the best president of my lifetime.

moondoggie1951

Mine too and I am 69 years old

bishopsboy

Thank you, St. Prodigal.

bishopsboy

Excellent letter, Carroll!

Driller

Satan and prod. Where is your defense of Con Don? All you can do now is say what a great post everyone has, if you agree with it.
