Our federal government was not designed to survive what we are currently facing: a US President who has no regard for the rule of law and no concern for the well-being of half (or all) of the country's citizens; a political party comprising almost half the country that is willing to supplicate itself to said President; and a collection of partisan, unqualified justices and judges installed by that President who are willing to intentionally misinterpret the law to suit his whims.

I don’t think they ever thought a US President could possibly be this corrupt.
Not sure about that since I think they were created as a result of Nixon. And I mean after Teapot Dome, a cabinet member went to prison for accepting bribes.
Nixon was a Boy Scout compared to the shit Trump is pulling off.

Nixon, nor the government, was this corrupted by greed. Power? Sure. But this is all about wealth.

Remember that Nixon literally said: "when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal."

Couple this with CU and that is how we got here.

Haven't been sure where to put these and I don't follow a ton of political things on twitter (have muted a bunch of words actually) but she shows up on my TL from RTs and I always get a kick because she nails the facial expressions while lip syncing. Check out her other videos if you like:

There is something about seeing someone's words this way that puts it in a different context.

Exactly. As ridiculous as he normally sounds, it really puts the emphasis on the word salad/jumbling and complete nonsense that comes out unless he's reading off a teleprompter or prepared statement.

Yet another Cooper! ;) Yes, I've been seeing these too. She's great. This one is so funny because Trump is obviously acting like a 2nd grader who got caught being asked about something he knows nothing about. Some great, classic deflections in there. "I don't want to get into it. It's too personal." and "I'd say I like them equally." Idiot.

Reminds me of the movie, Mr. Mom. "220/221 Volts. Whatever it takes."

His whole faux-Christian act is repulsive, and I'm not even particularly religious. He can't even lie well about something so easy to lie about to people who are begging to appease him. He's too stupid to just say that he likes John 3:16, the most commonly referenced verse in the Bible. I'd bet if there were a book of Donald, he'd think it was written about him.

I wish we had a metric to show how incredibly dumb someone would need to be to believe Trump actually knows anything about any religion.
