Executive order changing the two term limit amendment... I wouldn’t put it past him.
What previous actions has Trump taken that lead you to believe that?

Just words, but seriously, what other president after the 22nd amendment would even have considered talking like that?

I predict that we will look back on the Robert Mueller hearings yesterday as a critical milestone in Trump's re-election:

1. Russian Hack 2020 is already well under way.

2. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer can count to 51 and they now know for certain that impeaching Trump is an exercise in futility, even for the most partisan in their caucus. Worried that Ruth Bader Ginsburg will not last another 5 years on the Supreme Court, influential groups like NARAL will demand that the Dems drop impeachment and focus on electoral victory in November 2020.
Yes, that's what the Democrats should do if they want a prayer of winning next year.

I don't believe they can do it though, because the crazy D freshpersons in Congress won't let them.

And I'm not sure they could win even then, because the crazy D primary voters would destroy any candidate who went along with it.

So I think we're stuck with 13 more years of a Donald Trump presidency.
Executive order changing the two term limit amendment... I wouldn’t put it past him.

Economy will blow up before 2020 election is my call, and he will have a hard time of it. Running out of people to blame when that happens. Only has the Fed left to bitch about.
I was including Donald Trump Jr. for two terms. O0

He does love to troll his opponents. And it seems to work every... single... time.

I may have to take back what I said about there being some sort of grand strategy behind all this. Now that the Russian collusion narrative might be losing steam it looks like the Dems are resorting to the tried and true racist, racist, racist strategy. If Trump has a real strategy it must be to get them all to keep saying it over and over to keep it in the news so people will see it for what it really is. Looks like it's working too. That story about the congresswoman at Publix in Georgia was a real gem. And now they are fact checking his claims about Baltimore and finding out they're true.

To conservatives out there:

Trump tweet: "Budget Deal is phenomenal for our Great Military, our Vets, and Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!" he tweeted. "Two year deal gets us past the Election. Go for it Republicans, there is always plenty of time to CUT!"

Budgets and debt only matter when the other party is in power.

All hypocrites and they all suck.

I don't recall Trump running as a fiscal conservative in 2016.

To quote Hillary Clinton, "what difference does it make at this point".

G.W. Bush ran as a fiscal conservative and added $6 trillion dollars to the debt.

The only difference between Dems and Repubs on this issue is that Dems believe in "tax and spend" and Repubs in "Cut taxes and spend".

My, except for the spam that got through it's getting pretty boring around here.

So does anyone remember how the Republicans were all over Obama for the mass murders that happened on his watch? And that included the elementary school shooting in Sandy Hook, the Las Vegas country concert shooting, the Orlando nightclub shooting, the San Bernadino shootings and I could go on and on.

Don't remember? Neither do I.

Never seen anything like this in all of my years of observing politics. The total dishonestly and hypocrisy makes you want to tune completely out of politics and current events but I think that is maybe the whole point of the democrat strategy,

Sickening.

Yeah, Trump wants to reduce immigration from the current insane levels, and therefore he hates Mexicans, Africans, Asians, etc.

Trump points out that Democratic leaders are doing a terrible job at improving places like Baltimore, and therefore he is racist against African-Americans.

Ergo, we have a bunch of mass shootings.

It makes perfect sense.

And when he points out that the fake news is actually a big part of the problem behind the mass shootings, he is 100% correct. The fake news won't acknowledge that our current immigration levels are insanely high; all they do is stoke the flames by pretending there is no problem and blaming Trump for seeing that there is a problem. Same with Baltimore.

I still give the majority of the American people credit for being able to see through all of this and discern what's really going on.

Otherwise I would lose all hope (at least in the American electorate).
