I know I'm right. That's the only thing the President does that actually becomes US law. It's pretty funny that you think Trump doesn't "give a damn about the job". Who told you that?

That didn't take long. He's not even sworn in yet.



'I'd be dead without Medicare!': Trump voters are already sharing their deep regrets

Donald Trump's supporters are having serious regrets about what they just did, and the most indignant responses are being captured for posterity.

President Sham-Wow's cabinet already the richest of all time, and he's not even done yet.

Wonder if the grammar school dropouts who voted for Trump still feel The Donald "speaks for them" at this point?

Who Voted for Wall Street?

Trump railed against Wall Street bankers on the campaign trail. Now they're joining his administration.

During the campaign, Donald Trump said he wanted to fix our rigged economic system. And we can’t do that, he said, by counting on the people who rigged it in the first place.

He talked a big game about Wall Street and the big banks. He repeatedly called out Goldman Sachs, the Wall Street behemoth, by name in ads and speeches, characterizing the firm as controlling his rivals Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz.

So it should come with some shock, at least to Trump voters, that now President-elect Trump has chosen a consummate Wall Street insider, Steve Mnuchin, for treasury secretary.

Mnuchin spent 17 years as an executive at Goldman Sachs before continuing his lucrative career as a banker and investor. Is this not the swampiest of characters that Trump vowed to drain away?

Trump’s anti-Wall Street messaging resonated with millions of voters. A poll taken just before the election showed that nearly 70 percent of undecided voters in key swing states wanted to break up the big banks and cap their size to avoid another financial crisis.

Can you imagine the outrage from the righties if Hillary was putting together a team of billionaires, hedge fund managers, and Goldman Sachs execs?!?

The sad thing is that she would have. We are ruled by a plutocracy, and way too many people willingly blind themselves to the fact on both sides. And even after Trump ****s over the poor and middle class like no one before him, they will still not see it. Americans are too dumb to live.

Sham-Wow ran on the idea that he was opposed to "all these wars," and now he's stocking his cabinet with generals. Okay.

Only a month has passed since November 8th, but it's already clear that Trump's anti-establishment campaign rhetoric was the biggest scam of his career.

There are plenty of generals that aren't all that pro-war.

After his "Man of the People" campaign, a reasonable person would have expected a few of "the people" to make it onto his team. Doesn't look like it. Only one percenters need apply.

Several years ago, Donald Trump joked, "It's very possible that I could be the first presidential candidate to run and make money on it."

As it turns out, he may not have been entirely kidding.

Trump-owned businesses received millions from Trump’s campaign

Had this been a democratic president Ron and Barry would be screaming and posting every article they cold fine about democratic hypocrisy and corruption.

For a party that runs on "principled decisions and ethics" you guys are a ****ing joke.

You really thought Trump was brought up on a platform of "principled decisions and ethics?"

He may have said it -- but if he tries it he will be impeached.

Once Trump realizes this, he might straighten out. He wants to be the man who fixed America.

Sorta like Hitler wanted to be the man who made Germany the greatest nation ever.

That didn't work out so well.

Not that he doesn't still have admirers - you, for example.

Trump was literally shipping jobs overseas. He outsourced jobs all over the place and yet came in as the savior of the American worker? Those jobs ain't coming back, and if they do because Trump tries to force tariffs and taxes to make it so, expect those jobs to become automated as possible as quickly as possible. At least Hillary had a plan to re-educate and train workers to different areas that will be the next industry boom (renewable energy sector jobs).

I think the big blow is when most blue collar work can be automated in some way shape or form. What happens to all these people who will be out of jobs? Also don't get me started on Trump being one of the few world leaders (some sources say he's the only, but I can't believe that's true) who doesn't believe in climate change.
