    So when Trump UNFAIRLY won the election, I promptly took to Twitter to proclaim that he was not MY president. I went on believing from that day on that he was not my president. However, a few weeks ago, my buddy was telling me that Trump indeed was my president after all. He asked me to point to where I lived on a globe and lol and behold I actually resided in an area where Trump was indeed president. I guess you really do learn something new each day. I may not care that much for Trump but at least I do indeed know that Trump is my president.

    Yes, on paper Trump is president for all Americans. He was elected and that's the way our democracy works. Now we know full well that in Trump's mind he really only has to answer to the demographic groups who elected him...the Freedom caucus, alt-right groups, the evangelicals, and the corporate CEOs. No one else matters to him. So while he is our president on paper, in practice he is president of the 35 percent.

    Trump wouldn't be our President if a handful of people in a handful of swing states didn't decide to overrule the will of the American people, but they did and he is.

    technically the answer is yes. I however don't have any respect for him as president nor trust him. trump is has outstanding skills has showman, frontman, and Bullshit artist, but has very poor leadership skills. He has inflated himself in all aspects to be larger than life. In all seriousness, I doubt that even his base trusts him

    He does not even come close to being qualified to be POTUS. He is a showman playing the role as POTUS. For him it about the show and his image.

    Yes, and the entire system works were a key vote can make\break the balance of power.

    McCain may go down in history at the man who saved healthcare for millions of Americans. For many On the right, McCain's is seen as the sole man who prevented the overhaul of healthcare.

    232 - 306. Why doesn't anyone address our being invisible to 65% of this country. We knew the rules and lost badly. Blame everyone except ourselves. If more people would have.... well they didn't. A sure victory was stolen by the reality conman. We're a short period away from our next lost opportunity in 14+ months.

    No/Maybe yes. I didn't vote for this divisionist. As far as I'm concerned, he is only temporary, I hope.

    Currently it's more important to win in '18 so we can make a difference and get in the way. We need to avoid being a weak minority like it's the plague. Democrats will lead people and try to help all. That's why I am so frustrated. We need to undo the serious mess before us and I think Pres. Obama should be our silent expert consultant. This machine needs to be entirely rebuilt. Immediately.

    I'm still waiting to see and hear an "President" as well act as an President ; thus I'm only aware that an strange weird guy with an orange hairdo is running an "campaign" all the time to become one, but until now has not succeeded in doing so. Amen

    I think maybe sooner for this low life bottom feeder, he has exhibited mental instability thus far, it's probably only a matter of short time before he cracks up and the SS will have to lead him to the funny farm in a strait jacket. If he lasts through the budget talks, congress will override his veto, (no border wall funding) which will be a lesson for him in governing. We might see congress come together to hammer out a budget without him, he'll then be isolated. It might be a historic move by the congress.

    "If the Congress overrides the veto by a two-thirds vote in each house, it becomes law without the President's signature."

    I believe this will be the crack up tipping point for Thrump. The bully will then be beat down.

    Umm...Democrats aren't invisible to 65% of this country unless you're talking strictly about land mass. If that were the case then Democrats would be invisible to 75 or 80% because the vast majority of land mass in America is sparsely populated.

    Sure, Republicans do well in places like Wyoming and Kansas, but more people live in Los Angeles than those two states combined. Republicans also do well in places like Utah, Idaho, and Arkansas, but more people live in New York City than those three states combined.

    Maybe it's time for Americans to start rethinking how we elect our leaders. Why do so many of us just blindly accept that the minority has the right to overrule the will of the majority? Why should the Democratic Party have to stoop to the lowest common denominator in order to convince a bunch of red necks in so called swing states to vote for them?

    Any grass roots case for getting rid of the current system ? I am all for it. Until then Dems should learn to speak in a way that reaches Wyoming, Montana, Kansas, Texas, Alabama, etc. We don't even try. We deserve our pathetic state of not mattering.

    What good will come if Democrats just become Republican lite's in order to win an election? I'd rather lose every election than be forced to vote between a racist and a quasi-racist or between a misogynist and a quasi-misogynist.
