    Well yesterday was…..sad. He is getting worse in terms of sheer stupidity. In what world was that speech a good idea given how his administration is like burning building where people are being let go left and right.

    “How to Lose a Communications Director in 10 Days” lol. But in all seriousness, as an Italian American myself, he was just a freaking mess and I hope people don’t view Italians through his actions

    ** On Friday President TRUMP Recorded His 34th Stock Market Record High    of  2017
    ** For 8 Days in a Row the Stock Market has Reached All Time Closing Highs
    ** The Market Is Up More than 20% Since the November Election
    ** More than 1 in 4 Days is a New Record High
    ** Trump Market Surpassed 19,000, 20,000, 21,000 and 22,000 Milestones!

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average recorded its 34th all time high of 2017 today closing at 22,092. There have been a total of 137 days where the markets have closed since President Trump’s inauguration on January 20th. The ‘DOW’ has closed at all time highs 34 of those days or one out of every four days since the inauguration. The market is up 11% since the inauguration.
    Since the election on November 8th the DOW has closed at record highs an amazing 51 times! More than one-fourth or 27% of the 185 days the markets have closed have been record highs since the November 8th election. The market is up more than 20% since the election!

    Before the November election the last time the US Markets closed at a new high was last August.  In Obama’s entire first term, the US stock market (DOW) never reached a new closing high. In years 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 the DOW never reached a new high once!

    Americans are benefiting greatly in their 401k’s from the recent change in administrations.

    Good for you

    The American economy has added more than one million jobs since President Donald Trump took office.
    Defying expectations that job creation would slump this year, America has added more than 200,000 jobs in four out of Trump’s six months in office. That brought the total number of jobs created since the start of February to 1.07 million. On average, the economy created 179,000 jobs in each of the first six months of Trump’s presidency.

    reality bites for Trump haters

    And on top of that those transcripts of the phone conversations were just amazingly bad for him.

    Yeah reality really bites….but then again our President is a seventy-something year old man child that has no grasp of reality, diplomacy, grammar, human decency, etc.

    The answer to your question is on the story you copied and pasted. Fourth paragraph of your full post, exactly.

    Well thanks, but the answer is unspoken. Bernie ‘dares’ to be NOT a supporter of Hillary’s main BOSS, whom she mouth-pieces for and gladly lines her own pockets.

    Do not get tired of goodness and goodness of the forum. Hello community!

    Thank you

    Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch has discovered that millions of fake California voter registrations were lodged for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
    11 Californian counties have a significantly higher number of registered voters than they have voting-age citizens. In Los Angeles alone, the number was as high as 144% of the total number of residents.
    The watchdog has sent a letter to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla on behalf of the Election Integrity Project, demanding an explanation for the apparent breach of Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).
    During the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton won the Californian vote with a 61.7% majority of the popular vote, which Trump has repeatedly claimed was as a result of widespread voter fraud.

    good thing the fake California vote was irrelevant

    The Young Turks always do thought-provoking and informative work, though these 2 recent videos really stand out:

    STUDY: Muslims More Accepting Of Gay People Than White Evangelicals
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQQsV8kmHOI

    Coding Battle Of The Sexes: Who Is Better?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaX8XhR_17g

    I made several comments below the second video and this was my biggest one by far:

    Joe Rogan’s consistent loyalty to PSUEDOSCIENCE (“Biology,” my ass!) has always pissed me off, but I used to be able to still enjoy his interviews and cool personality in spite of his dishonest, naive, and occasionally outright sexist bullshit… until I saw his reaction to this scandal. Joe Rogan, Bret and Eric Weinstein call themselves liberals, yet being a liberal is not about whether or not you support a couple token issues (like gay marriage or legalized marijuana), but about whether or not you have empathy for people not like yourselves, and the struggles / discrimination they face that you yourself would not. In this particular case, some misogynistic nutjob at Google got deservedly fired, and Joe was retweeting made-up propaganda about “biology” and how we shouldn’t be teaching our girls that “the path to financial freedom” doesn’t come from “complaining to HR.” WTF?! If holding sexist pricks (#ToppleThePatriarchy) like the Google douchebag accountable isn’t something that you want your daughters being taught, then Joe Rogan and Eric Weinstein must really be some shitty fathers. I’m finally finished with Joe after his embarrassingly ignorant and heartless reaction to this event. Ultimately, like with Bill Maher and his rabid Islamophobia, my only regret is that I didn’t quit sooner. 🙁

    Also, fuck these scumbag trolls, TYT. Kim, Ana, and Cenk, please keep up this honest, factual, and informative work. Let the brainwashed haters hate all they want, they live in their fantasy bubble, while me and my fellow Young Turks fans proudly live in the real world. :)

    I was talking to a Trump lover. He said that Muslims are dangerous. I said that is offensive. One of the points he mentioned was that the Muslims and Indians (he put the two together) were sexist. I said, but isn’t America sexist. He said no. He said America is way more “evolved”. And than I asked him, “if they are so sexist and America isn’t , why did India elect Prime minister Indira Gandhi in office form 1966 to 1977, but America still hasn’t had a female president?” He said that’s all propaganda.

    I can’t deal with some people.
