Re: Wanna know why they Hate Trump?

That's true of Democrat leaders but doesn't explain the hatred of those who live Republican lives and vote Democrat.  We have a neighbor that hate's Trump.  I have never asked why as I don't want to lose their friendship or just cause problems when there is nothing to be gained.  But they had a business and were successful.  They worked, raised their family and their kids work.  If you looked at them in every way you'd assume they were Republicans, but they're Trump hating Democrats.  It's bizarre when people that go to church on Sunday, work all week, raise their family without government assistance or interference, willing assist their friends and neighbors and then vote for people that are the exact opposite of them.

I know, it is truly amazing. Maybe when the coup d’etât evil doers get put in prison, their eyes will be opened, ..... like Paul on the road to Damascus. 

Don Kraft was like that. I wonder what he thinks, today?  I hope God gave him a chance to repent.   #walkaway

(Wanna know why they Hate Trump?)

I know a lot of reasons they hate Trump now, most are just Democrat talking points to make themselves feel better. 

What I have yet to figure out is why they decided to hate Trump at the beginning of his Presidency other than he hurt our feelings by beating Hillary as it was Hillary's turn.  Nobody really had any idea how Trump would govern and he appeared willing to work with whomever would work with him to get things done.  I figured Republicans would be more upset with Trump at this point in his 1st term than Democrats.  It is my opinion that Trump would have readily worked with Democrats and that Democrats could have gotten a lot of what they wanted if they would have played it smarter.  However Democrats and their cohorts in the main stream / liberal media decided to declare all out war against Trump.  Seems to me that they badly misdiagnosed and misplayed the situation.

This is just my guess, but Obama spoiled a lot of liberals, they though "old fat stupid dumb white people" were dying off and could be written off politically.  These liberals arguing with us everyday are probably "old fat stupid dumb white people"  themselves, so go figure.  

But they thought a Republican would never win the white house again, I know they had me believing it.  Well, it`s like loading hogs on the trailer, one batch goes up just fine.  Then the next load about every one has to be loaded one at a time, Hillary losing was about like the hogs on the trailer all turning around and coming back down the chute   Smiley Happy   All it took was for one brave hog (Trump) to run over the guy with the shocker and the rest of us followed.

You are sorta halfways kinda on to something BA.

I have a very good number of friends and acquaintances who would easily described as middle class self described liberals who vote Democrat 99% of the time but tend to shy away from Dems who are “too left”. People who in reality, whether conscious of it or not, have spent most of their adult and working life’s making sure they didn't have to interact with what they casually would see or refer to as the redneck or hayseed or whatever culture. They didn’t understand  or take seriously or recognize the scope or history that led to the Tea Party movement and for certain were mystified by the Trump voter (2 considerably different demos,btw, than anybody on the Right was willing to acknowledge up until recently).

I can’t count the number of times that I raised my voice and pounded on the table telling folks of that sort when they would chuckle or express mystification over what had happened “You don’t know any of these people! Your background gives you no frame of reference for what motivates them! They are very, very real and bring to the surface issues and matters that have been generally festering under the surface for decades. They have the material and the “out of the wilderness” leadership to do what they say they will.”

I can’t count the number of them who have made a point of telling me something to the effect of “You were right. How did you know that?”.

Crazy thing is, I’m seeing some of those same people as oblivious to how much trepidation lies in their cobbled up party nominating the least electable candidate again.

Re: Wanna know why they Hate Trump?

Just saying he has accomplished more does not change facts.

Have you checked on just what has happened?

He does have more people in his administration who have been charged with crimes, more that have been convicted.

Is that an accomplishment?
