    Joy Reid, Daily Beast, November 17, 2016: President-Elect Donald Trump Gets to Work Betraying His Backers

    Joy Reid opening line: "I should probably get out of the predictions business, having so misjudged the country before the recent election. But I will hazard two more. The first: Donald Trump will turn on his supporters. The second: The Democrats will turn on theirs, too."

    I have long respected Joy Reid and I find her predictions for the future bone chilling. I do hope she is wrong. Some on this website have made equally or even more sinister predictions for America, but when Joy Reid speaks out, I usually listen.

    Read her view of the future, not only of the Republicans but also of the Democrats who will find ways to join the Trump wagon. I could have added this as a post to many of the existing threads but decided to give Reid her own thread. The question is, will Democrats including Bernie Sanders fold?

    Interesting to note that my post about a flurry of opinions was being written while Schmidt posted this.

    Did anyone see the disgusting photo of Chuck Schumer and Paul Ryan with shit-eating grins on their faces as they both suck up to each other and a whispering f the public? It was totally disgusting but the Dems will be sucking at the teat of Trump before we can stop them!

    Yes Schmidt, I'm afraid she got it right this time Sorry, this is as I said many times an very naive uneducated country, as well an "banana republic' situated on an "island" The future will tell the same thing as Joy predicted. Unless we get the chance to "impeach" the asshole and his buddies.

    The fucker is a walking contradiction. There's no way he could logically move forward without disappointing someone who bought into his lies.

    Already, he's backtracked on at least 8 campaign promises. Many of the "liberals" who drifted from the Bernie camp to support Trump deserve some, if not all, of the imminent fallout. The exceptions being the folks who are literally disenfranchised.
