      @Sean Pizzo it won’t be a fine this time you will pay for it when they take 30%+ of your taxes

    • @Anthony Egidio I don’t see anyone that can come close to beating him. Maybe Bernie. I think Bernie is the only one any body believes when it comes to free stuff. Still, going to be very hard considering how well the economy is doing. The socialist will ruin the country with the open borders and free everything.

    Sorry!: what other justification do we need for invoking the 25th Amendment? Does drumpf need to defecate on the Mall?

      @Dragonice Lakeoffire sorry but this is my country and I will stay and fight for it.Why don’t you leave I hear Russia is a better place for such criminals as your party.

    • Linda Wetzel, It wouldn’t matter if he did. Nothing would happen. I don’t know why but it seems that everyone in our government today is so terrified of Trump that they will not lift a finger to oppose him. If he tweeted that the sky was pink with purple polka dots Everyone in the government would totally agree with him.

    his wife’s is a immigrant she would have got that question wrong

  4. When are people going to pull their heads put of their butts and see what Trump really is? He has no respect for our laws, our Constitution nor our values. He is a wanna-be dictator who idolizes authoritarians and insults our allies. I could go on and on.

    • You have for 2 and a half years. You sound like a broken record. When are you going to realize that he is a great President? Tell me one thing that he has done that wasn’t an improvement to the mess we had before he took office. Just one ?

      Silk Santos Ok desert storm solve : 3.4-6.8-10.2-13.6

    • @Joe Caputi The census is supposed to enable calculation of a localised budget for services required for TAXPAYERS, whether full citizens or otherwise legal workers PAYING TAXES. Only counting citizens would give a false low number for areas where a lot of non-citizens work, e.g. Seattle. What needs to be known is how many people are there, not their status; seems to have worked in the past. The attempted change is a political act, not an accounting one, according to the courts.

  9. So….when do we reach a Constitutional crisis exactly?

      When the question ends up on the census, which can happen because what they send to printers could be anything they want. They know what SS#s are associated with citizens and which ones are not. This is Trump’s signature issue, most people not in his 33% could care less about this issue and he will convince zero Hillary voters to switch to him on this issue. Hillary ran a stupid campaign last time, Trump’s is stupider, sticking with one issue only 33% of voters care about for 4 years, so it’s vote for me on impeachment and brown people in 2020.

    • @Michael Browne That’s an element of trite — but only in the context of something being overused. If you want to assert that my commentary is “of little significance” — you’re free to do that, but since my argument is original and doesn’t follow any norms, it simply cannot be qualified as “trite.”

    John Baron — former spokesman for Donald Trump — is not a citizen, and will have to answer accordingly.

    Let’s see that birth certificate.

    I feel so bad for DOJ lawyers. They essentially have to double down on stupid.

      We need judicial heroes to defend our democracy against trump’s idiotic presidency!

    • Anthony Campos Oh don’t worry about them , they are well compensated and knew exactly what their client is like when they took up his cause.
