    The picture expresses my overall feelings about the reprehensible subject better than most.

    He represents an unprecedented danger to our democracy, more so, and in a different way than the progression of Republicans from Nixon, Reagan, and the Bushes.  Each of them were guilty of wrongful acts with lasting harm, but none of them so aggressively disregarded ethical norms, attacked Constitutional principles, or actively pushed racial, ethnic, and religious divisive prejudices as a political strategy.

    We are, in a way, fortunate that his incompetence and impulsiveness have left him vulnerable to a thorough investigation.  Americans have long believed that our Constitutional system protects us from the kind of power abuses that have dismantled democracies  elsewhere, and mostly it has, but it also needs good people willing to stand up for it.

      OK, fair enough.  Now list them.  Should be easy enough.  I question if you can.  I think you just listen to the left's talking heads.  For example, illegal immigrants are not being put in cages.  What they are doing at the border was done during Obama's terms in office and the thing about separation was issued by the courts in 1992.  The children actually are treated well and have better meals than many poor citizens of the US.  However, I am sure you know all this, I am sure that you just don't listen to crocodile tears Maddow but actually research first.  Then again, if you actually went out and did research and found the truth, you couldn't just mindlessly bash Trump.

      As a centrist I look at everything in a fair light.  I didn't care for most of the things Obama did but there were things he did right.  I don't care for all the things that Trump is doing, but there are things he is doing right.

      The real threat to democracy is from the regressive left; which is not the left; although the left seems to listen to them too often.  The left's embrace of identity politics and victim groups is a scary thing and is one reason for the #WalkAway.  Victim groups resulted in the deaths of millions under Stalin.  History is a good thing to know.

    I guess you might look at having sex with a porn start a possible scandal but I doubt if many care today.  It was consensual sex.  Considering how the Democrats continue to defend Bill Clinton who was accused of rape, I don't see the screwing of a porn star as a scandal being pushed by the left.

    As for campaign finance charges, if there hasn't been any indication of that or Meuller would have already issued the charges.  Even if Trump did pay off the woman he is rich enough to do it from his petty cash and not from any campaign finances.

    I totally agree with Steve and Secret Corners. This is nothing but a hit on President Trump. Obama should have been impeached.

      He still can be.  If, as indicated by recently developments, he was part of spying on a rival party's campaign during an election, he should be impeached and prosecuted for the crimes committed.  Remember that Nixon was involved in a break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters and that was the basis of his resignation.

        I was born in 1955. I remember the Nixon era and his resignation. Obama's entire political career should be nullified. Every law at the state and federal level, that he voted on, his vote should be nullified.

    Can you expand on this meme?  What are the mental disorders?  What are the scandals?

    The whole investigation into the Russian Collusion has only brought forth the corruption by Democrats in the DoJ and FBI. In light of this, the millions of dollars spent on the Russian Collusion might actually be good for the nation if those involved are held accountable.
