    This didn't age well. Both sides of the political aisle admit there's a crisis at the border. Once again, Trump was 3 steps ahead of the MSM.

    Obama didn't deserve it either. He literally got it for being the "first" black president. He wasn't even in office long enough to do anything when he received it.
    The way he did Flint is Bs and he didn't deserve that prize. That opened my eyes to the fakery that this world lives up to as important, prestigious and righteous. It's all poppycock.

    OMG a Nobel Peace Prize? He is out of his frickin mind.. So into himself. Remember he knows everything more than any human out there. More than the generals and more than our national security advisors. Art of the Deal Man? The only deal the Dump knows how to make is paying off Porns Stars. Worst President in the History of our nation

    I've basically reached the conclusion that Trump can't possibly be *THAT* stupid, and everything now is just to distract people from the tax cuts for the rich which seem to not get a lot of attention (comparatively). They certainly went through without much objection from anyone that mattered.

    Seth, if All you have his hair jokes you’ve pretty much recycled everything you can at this point. There’s a good majority of Americans that are sick of late night shows taking on politics. Try being funny instead of a bought out puppet. You were funny when you got drunk with barefoot contessa, stick with that type of stuff.

    According to Trump, Americans are the enemy of America and we all need to turn to Russia to save us from our freedom to look, see, think , Know and share our OBSERVED WISDOM and TRUTH to become UNITED and able to ignore the lies , made of mere words, of these various military dictatorships needing us to be soldiers, slaves and cannon fodder in their war to OWN the DIRT beneath Life's feet..

    First i'm kind of surprised that there are no conservatives here and second I think that he should stop focusing on attire and put more focus on the reason trump is doing the national emergency; Which is partly due to the standstill with Congress and the fact that he wants the border wall asap. Alot his supporters thought that if trump could declare a national emergency then when a new president came along that was a Democrat they would pull national emergencies all the time for the stupidest stuff just for their and their supporters agendas.

    Anybody seen that Nobel prize letter? We sure hear a LOT of accounts that some former President shared with him information that neither the CIA, FBI, DEA, DoD, DHS, nor NSA have ever heard; of course, none of his fabricated conversations ever took place, as substantiated by his fabricated sources.

    It is really a wonder how Trump's supporters can even admit that they support him. Of course many of them refuse to believe that he said the things we attack him for even when there is video of him saying it. He is the closest thing to being a complete idiot I have ever seen. I remember teacher 8th grade boys make better sense when they were discussing how cool it is to do what they do on JACKASS.

What could he want, he couldn’t find in South Beach? Sex that is illegal in the States, sex with children ?

    There are 13 countries in which atheism is punishable by death. There are 18 countries where homosexuality is punishable by death. ALL of them are Islamic.
    Islamic nations rank lowest in women's rights. In fact, cruel and unusual acts of violence are regularly carried out on women on a systematic basis in these nations. Islamic nations which do not have oil as a resource are backward, both in terms of technology and economy.
    Most of the terrorist groups active today commit similar acts of terrorism that are in line with the Islamic doctrine and claim to do so in the name of Allah enshrined in the Koran.
    There are thousands of Islamic terror groups active worldwide. ISIS and al-Qaeda are just the ones that got popular.
    Islam demands exclusiveness. And demands domination over other faiths. This makes it incapable of adjustment and co-existence.

    Americans need to start getting serious about their future. They are so caught up in making fun of and focusing on the mango man that they might just land up having him around for another term if they're not careful. I know he's morbidly fascinating but really it's time to turn away and give serious thought to a competent replacement.
