Do we really want to be put in a position where we have to wonder if President Obama should start taking advice from Donald Trump? Don’t answer that before being reminded that this is the same president who said sending troops to West Africa to combat Ebola there was “what the stars and stripes are all about.”

How dumb is our president to send thousands of poorly trained and ill-equipped soldiers over to West Africa to fight Ebola. Stop all flights

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2014

Hey, leave the troops and their training out of this mess.

.@realDonaldTrump None of our soldiers are poorly trained. Amazingly offensive and dumb, sir!

@CDuplessis22 Most of the troops are building out hospitals, and these troops were trained in construction. They are more than able

@Read_N_Learn @realDonaldTrump poorly trained to fight ebola…not poorly combat trained.

— Clint Duplessis (@CDuplessis22) October 1, 2014

is @realDonaldTrump saying our military is ill equipped and poorly trained?

— Emily (@divineem) October 1, 2014

We’ll chalk that one up with Trump’s usual stupid tweets.

The United States must immediately institute strong travel restrictions or Ebola will be all over the United States-a plague like no other!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2014

An idea worse than Ebola?

"@kimgt15: @realDonaldTrump RUN FOR PRESIDENT! Save us!"

GOP front-runner Donald Trump released a statement this afternoon clarifying that despite what he said at the debate last night, he will not“order our military or other officials to violate” the law or commit war crimes and that he would be“bound by laws just like all Americans”:

Trump had said at the debate last night that the military wouldn’t refuse his potentially illegal orders to, for example, kill the family members of terrorists or use an interrogation method worse than waterboarding, because he’s a leader:

Donald Trumpgave his first extensive interview since being elected president, and the previewlooks like hes up to his old ways again.

The interview will air on 60 Minutes on Sunday at 7 pm ET where Trump will talk about his plan to immediately deport 2to 3million people from the States.

And yes, the wall is happening, although part of it may just be a fence.

Thousands Protest Against Trump

In a preview for the interview, Trump says,

What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers we have a lot of these people, probably 2million, it could even be 3million were getting them out of our country or were going to incarcerate. But were getting them out of our country theyre here illegally.

Speaking about the remaining, undocumented immigrants in the States, he added,

After the border is secured and after everything gets normalized, were going to make a determination on the people that youre talking about who are terrific people, theyre terrific people but were going to make a determination at that.

President Donald Trump bragged again about his law-making capabilities on Twitter the morning of Friday, June 23.

Echoing a prior boast, Trump touted the amount of bills he has signed into law.

However, while the White House has touted the president’s historic accomplishment and while Trump himself has impliedhe’s gotten more done than others at similar points in their presidencies an analysis from NPR shows what Trump has actually accomplished: Not much.

The bulk of Trump’s work hasbeen measures that reverse things former President Barack Obama tried to do. Other bills signed, meanwhile, have been of modest and narrow import, like theDepartment of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017, which impacts how easily employees at the VA can get fired.

In other words,Trump has yet to achieve a signature moment legislatively; i.e. working with Congress to get a major bill through the House and Senate, and then signed into law.

Both Trump and the White House have implied otherwise.

During a lunch last week with members of Congress, the president said,

We passed and signed 38 pieces of legislation, which nobody likes to talk about. I think probably seldom has any President and administration done more or had more success so early on, including a record number of resolutions to eliminate job-killing regulations.

The president’s tally of bills signed, however, is not a rarity. As NPR points out, both former presidents Bill Clinton and his predecessor George H.W. Bush signed over 40 bills into law at similar points of their tenures.

Trump could sign his first, major piece of legislation soon, if the GOP’s efforts to pass a new healthcare bill are ultimately successful.

For the time being, though, the president’s administration is still lacking its first signature piece of legislation, particularly one that fulfills a key campaign promise like a bill that secures funding for a new border wall or a bill that achieves tax reform.

That all means that yet another one of Trump’s boasts was a little bit off. In other news, water is wet.

Even though it feels like its been well over a century since Donald Trump took the oath of office and officially became the president of the United States, weve only just reached the end of his first 100 days.

In approximately three months, Trump has managed to begin the construction of a border wall between the US and Mexico, issue an executive order that temporarily banned citizens of seven Muslim nationsfrom entering our country and helaunched the first ever direct attack against the Syrian government.

Hes done plenty more than that since entering the White House back in January, but my post-election anxiety is starting to flare upagain, so we can just stop there for now.

With the election of Donald Trump, theres been ample time for reflection. And boy, have we reflected. This race was especially hard for me as a die-hard Hillary Clinton supporter.

You heard right; I am one of the few die-hard Hillary Clinton people. I wasnt a Bernie person making my second choice. Ive admired Hillary Clinton ever since I was a child. She came to my school in Brooklyn in 1999 when she was running for the Senate. I was in the chorus and we sang for her. She even knew the song!

Somewhere between my mind in my heart, I still hold out hope that maybe one day she could be our president. But on to our sharpening reality

This race was about many things, including xenophobia, misogyny and bigotry. This race was also about class warfare. If liberals come away with anything from this loss, it needs to be this: We must stop letting the elite in our movement be the voice of our movement.

Lena Dunham, Robert De Niro and Miley Cyrusare just a few of the celebrities who have expressed their disappointment and fear over the election of Donald Trump.

Heres the thing: Dunham, De Niro and Cyrus have more money than God. They will be fine. When youre a certain amount of rich, the president tends to become irrelevant.

As Mitt Romney said during his first presidential debate with President Obama, The rich are going to be fine no matter which one of us is president.

Thousands Protest Against Trump

You know who needs to be fearful of a Trump administration? People like me! People like us! People of color, women, mixed race, liberal and poor. The decisionsPresident Trump makes or wont make will most likely affect me and my peers.

Does Lena Dunham have Obamacare? Probably not. I do; I work four part-time jobs, so my ability to get insurance through an employer ispretty much out of the question.

I know as women, Ms. Dunham and Cyrus are appalled about how the next president has spoken about women and his treatment of women. I am too. Such behavior is unbefitting of a human being let alone a president.

But let me get one thing straight: Lena Dunham will not have to worry about President Trump or any mans advances. Shes rich; she can hire bodyguards.No ones grabbing her without permission.

You know who I feel bad for? Every woman whocant afford to hire bodyguards, who walk down the street every day, and are targeted by perverts who are emboldened by our new president. My mother cannot afford such protection, neither can my aunts, sister, cousins or female friends.

Democrats have definitely been having a rough year.

On Wednesday, the political party suffered a serious blow when Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election to her controversial Republican opponent, Donald Trump.

Plus, many conservative senators, includingRob Portman of Ohio, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Roy Blunt of Missouri and Richard Burr of North Carolina secured their seats, keeping the senate under Republican control.

Now that Trump and theRepublicans are basically calling all of the shots, many liberals are worried about the fate of Planned Parenthood funding, the Paris Climate Agreement andthe Affordable Care Act.

Thousands Protest Against Trump

However, it turns out Democrats might have one last chance to flip aSenate seat.

Allow me to introduce you toFoster Campbell akathe one guy who could possibly save us from Donald Trump.
