    So you (i) agree with a post ("Yup!") that says Booker was acting "a little trumpish," and immediately afterwards (ii) state that Booker is "embracing the extreme left."

    I don't trust your objectivity and I haven't checked it out for myself yet.

    you sure check out anything and everything concerning Trump until you find out those breaking stories are mostly lies
    then you guys go back in your hole and quit talking about it until the next "oh we got him moment" only to have your hearts broken once again
    so we all have seen the fact that you have no objectivity
    i have no doubt that you HAVE INDEED CHECKED it out

    when he tried to act like he was "Nathan Hale" only to find out he was telling a complete and total lie
    man he is a clown show

    There’s a stark difference in their ideology for one, not defending Antifa whatsoever, but both parties are cloaked.

    just like the KKK, eventually Antifa will murder someone and probably more than one

    hate is hate
    no one can defend one and condemn the other
    both need to be condemned

    Still haven't.

    You were complaining that no one had answered you before. Now I have, with an explanation, and you're still not happy.

    Speaking of which...

    File this under EQUIVOCATE with:
    "Calling someone judgmental means you're judgmental."
    "If you don't tolerate intolerance, you're intolerant."
    "Self-defense is murder."
    and
    "It's racist to talk about racism."

    I know this doesn’t connect to Trumps corruption (in the traditional sense) but I didn’t want to start a new thread for it...

    So Papadopolous only gets 14 days in jail being charged with lying to the FBI only, not any collusion. I’m no lawyer, but that doesn’t surely signal strength on the case Mueller has, IMO.

    Also remember when the MSM thought Papadopolous breing charged was the end for Trump? Lol.

    No one has to remember when you thought every possible allegation against, and every possible connection to our President was fake news b/c we're still experiencing it in real time.

    Before the sentence was read, Papadopoulos' defense attorney, Thomas Breen, pointed fingers at Trump.
    "The President of the United States hindered this investigation more than George Papadopoulos ever did," Breen said.
    Breen told a rapt courtroom that Papadopoulos has already faced his penalty over the past year, and realized he needed to disavow the Trump administration in favor of the truth.

    Trump was his own source on more than 1 occasion. And we do know he dodged the draft, and he's perpetual liar.

    The oversimplicity of "hate is hate" is what's ignorant and pathetic. You're equivocating. An ideology based on hating people for their intrinsic characteristics and hating that same ideology are not equal.

    Reasonable liberal response: “That’s awesome. I still don’t like him but that’s good for the country.”

    #NeverTrump liberal response: “Trump had literally nothing to do with that.”

    One of the biggest variables for growth in the private sector is consumer confidence. Is it really that surprising that the people are willing to spend more and invest more when they feel like the government doesn't have a stranglehold on businesses? So yes, Trump does positively effect the economy.

    Wait a second. Without reading the whole thread are people actually claiming Trump hasn’t had an impact on th economy?

    It seems pretty spot on to me. I don’t know how anyone could be unhappy with a 4.2% GDP unless you are rooting against America.

    My focus is on myself and my family. Both of which are doing better with the extra money in my pocket and in my retirement

    I asked you if you were happy about the GDP. A pretty simple, direct question
