Letter to the Editor: Trump is our president so get over it

Stock image, St. George News

OPINION — Hillary has come out of hiding and proclaimed that the FBI director cost her the election by releasing new information, specifically Anthony Weiner’s computer contained thousands of Hillary’s classified emails. This info was discovered on Oct 26 and released only to congress. Weiner had no security clearance and Hillary committed a felony by giving it to Weiner whose estranged wife was Hillary’s confidant. Director James Comey had no choice but to release the new findings, otherwise he could be complicit.

Let’s go back to November. The first response by the Democrats to Hillary’s was suing for a recount of votes in key states. When this failed, Dems tried to mess with the Electoral College delegates and persuade them to change their legally binding vote over to Hillary. This also failed.

Meanwhile George Soros was sponsoring protests on inauguration week on the pretense of a “Woman’s March”. This changed nothing.

Then shortly after that we get a new strategy, “the Russians did it,” even though there is no evidence of any collusion between Republicans and the Russians. None! Russia tries to medal in all things USA and has for years. Obama did nothing about the Russians until his ‘dog in the fight’ lost.

Now six months after the election Obama and Hillary are building a war chest to aid the ‘Resistance’. This doesn’t sound like America.

When Romney, McCain, Gore and Dole lost elections there was none of this. There were never protests, recounts or attempts to sway the Elector’s. Has there ever been a Republican protest anywhere or any time?

Democratic Party behavior has become third world, something you’d see in Cuba or Honduras, a coup or uprising.

Look, America has some big problems. Trump is our president. Can we put the election sorrow behind us and start acting like Americans? It’s time. IT IS REALLY TIME!

    No Hillary, you lost because people like me voted for Trump just so we wouldn’t have to see you anymore ?

    • NotSoFast May 12, 2017 at 2:03 pm

      Now that wasn’t nice ladybugavenger. How would you like it if you had a cageling laugh like the Witch in Oz, had to wear those designer green pant suits and doesn’t know how to tell the truth? You wouldn’t like it.
      That’s not to say The Donald is much better. But he wouldn’t use phrases like ‘What difference does it make? after hanging Americans out to dry.

    “Has there ever been a Republican protest anywhere or any time?” Not much of a memory there, Craig! What do you think the Tea Party protests constituted? Tea Party resistance began the moment Obama took office, not to mention the non-stop questioning of Obama’s birth and background. Now the shoe is on the other foot, and you can’t take the heat! The mockery of our buffoon in chief will not subside as long as Trump continues to make a complete fool of himself on a daily basis. You are the one who needs to get over it.

  • Chris May 12, 2017 at 12:49 pm

    “medal”??? Did you mean “meddle”? LOL, I see literacy is not one of your strong suits, Craig.

    Conservatives were in mourning in 2008 and 2012 (and for good reason, Obama was a terrible president from start to finish), and liberals reveled in it and rubbed it in our faces and downplayed our concerns and mocked us (and on and on).

    Now liberals are in mourning (and throwing tantrums, and throwing out logic and reason and common sense, and throwing out accusations, and…) and for good reason, Trump is a horrible president.

    This will continue as long as we focus on people (as in hero-worship and dependence) and parties. We need to focus on principles and truth, seen through the lens of history.

    Until then we’re going to have to learn the hard way. And it’s going to be really, really hard. There won’t be a soft-landing on this one, unfortunately. The average citizen is going to have to make really smart choices to protect themselves, or face the consequences. I think the vast majority will face the consequences. Even those that are wise and careful and thoughtful are going to get hammered.

    First of all, Trump lost the popular vote by over 3 million votes. What has Trump done to unite this country? Nothing. He calls peoples names on his twitter account at 3:00 a.m. What legislation has his passed ? Nothing. He governs by use of the executive order. I cannot believe this guy is President. He is NOT my President. He is corrupt. He lies. I would bet a month’s pay that he does not last a term. Remember that disabled guy he made fun of? Remember when he said that he would pay the legal bills beating up people ? Remember what is bragged about grabbing ? Remember how Mexico was going to pay for the wall ? Nope. We have to pay 20 Billion dollars for that . $3 million every trip to Florida which he makes every week + the increased cost because his wife will not live in the white house. That is all tax payer dollars everybody. That is big money being taken away from you and me.

      You’re ok with Obama giving palestinians $220 million dollars in cash on last day of Presidency?

    • ladybugavenger May 12, 2017 at 4:18 pm

      Build the wall! Enforce laws of illegal immigration!

      • Thecadean May 14, 2017 at 4:50 pm

        The wall is to excite small minded people. Impractical and not effective. There is a much simpler solution.

        • comments May 14, 2017 at 9:15 pm

          Will never happen. Too many republican-voting business owners actually depend of the cheap labor of illegals–think farming (all kinds), meat processing, construction and building, the list goes on and on. I’m not sure the wall isn’t to keep them from leaving once they get in. It actually is ridiculous bc the US does an enormous amount of trade w/ mexico.

    • Henry May 12, 2017 at 5:08 pm

      “I would bet a month’s pay that he does not last a term.” I’ll take that bet. Name a lawyer’s office, date, and time where we can meet to formalize the agreement. Bring a copy of last year’s tax return, so we can verify income.

      • 42214 May 14, 2017 at 8:31 pm

        Henry, if you smoke out some action from the blowhard let me know, I’d like a bet too.

    • mesaman May 12, 2017 at 10:31 pm

      Peenutz, at least get accuracy into your “he lost” mentality, tell us where those 3 million (and the figure grows like Obama’s nose) were found. One state, two states, 52 states, (Obama, 2009)? And were they bona fide residents, or illegal immigrants, dead people, double voters, or robots? I am somewhat doubtful that your statistics are based on data conjured in the work rooms of MSNBC, CNN, or Hildy’s own backroom.

    • Real Life May 13, 2017 at 8:34 am

      As long as you live in the United States of America, he IS your president. Putting your hands over your ears and repeating I’m not listening, is not going to change that. He IS a horrible president. Hillary would be a horrible president. Obama was a horrible president. Sad, but true.

      • McMurphy May 13, 2017 at 1:28 pm

      • DontTreadOnMe May 26, 2017 at 12:08 am

        Exactly how I feel. Disliking one person does not make you an apologist for the other. This is what most Republican/Democrat debates sound like to me: “You suck.” “Yeah? Well, you suck even more because of XYZ.” “Me?! What about you? You did that sucky thing, and I will never forget it!” I mean, really?

        In the meantime, we have a president. I think it’s safe to assume that he does NOT represent the desires of at least 50% of the population. Then consider how many of the remaining 50% are people who held their nose and voted “the lesser of two evils” and still don’t feel represented? Obviously, he is not a popular president! If he does things a president should not do, then that should be dealt with, using the checks and balances that are supposed to exist.

        I support people when they say, “Our president does not represent me.” That acknowledgment spurs action. I do not support people when they refuse to accept that we have XYZ president. There’s nothing to accept, it just… is. I don’t understand that logic.

  • Travis May 12, 2017 at 4:10 pm

    We listened to “The Right” call Obama “Hitler”, “Nazi”, and far worse (showing the true colors of Americans – just read any of the comments at the end of the articles on Obama and some of the horrible things said about Michelle). I am seeing a few people commenting in this string and insulting the other people who are leaving comments. Once again showing the true colors of some Americans – or ignorance.

    Why not discuss, intelligently, some of the issues that we are all concerned about? No “election sorrow” here. And I don’t believe the “Democratic Party behavior has become third world, something you’d see in Cuba or Honduras, a coup or uprising.” “start acting like Americans?” – not exactly sure which Constitution you learned during school, but the 1st amendment allows us to protest and express our opinions – such as your opinion in this local newspaper. You cannot speak out in Cuba – remember. And try to think outside the box and realize that most of the protests were non-violent. There will always be the anarchists who show up and cause trouble.

    Republican protests are taking place – at the town hall meetings – and again, try to think outside the box and realize that the constituents showing up at the town hall meetings are from both parties and are very concerned about numerous issues as Washington rushes through the ACHA bill. Don’t always assume they are those paid protestors the Republicans like to mention after each town hall meeting.

    Trump makes a bigger ass of himself than baby Bush (Bush II). I actually didn’t think it was possible for a president to make himself out to be more of an idiot than bush II, but the donald is actually doing exactly that. Fricken clown show and circus is all I see from this donald. I got a feeling mexico won’t be paying for that wall anytime soon. We got a president that’s a buffoon, an idiot, and an ego-maniac narcissist that knows nothing about governing and spends his day writing idiot posts on twitter throughout the day. I was gonna give this donald the benefit of the doubt in the beginning, and i did, but as soon as he put paul ryan in charge of health reform I knew we were in trouble.

  • Ladyk May 13, 2017 at 2:14 am

    Ok let’s get a few things straight.

    Jim Comey miss-spoke. There were no “Classified” emails sent to Anthony Weiner. Other emails yes, but no criminal activity, at least not with this specifically. This does not include the private email server and the emails from HRC.

    Peanutz714 grow the hell up and stop saying he isn’t your President. You should have paid better attention in your civics class. It isnt the popular vote that determines the winner, its the electoral college votes that count. By those, Trump won handedly. I hated Obama but I am an American and he was my President. Stop acting like a spoiled brat and start doing something productive. Working to damage this country by rioting and yelling over a congressman at a town hall meeting is not productive. Neither is wearing black and stopping traffic. We didn’t do that over Obama and trust me there was plenty he did to deserve some kind of reaction. So just grow up and act like an adult.

    Why is it that the Dems think that burning, rioting and all manner of destruction is their right. It’s not!!! You are the ones destroying this country not Trump. He hasn’t done anything to elicit that type of behavior and before you say that it’s because you don’t like him. I will say it again. GROW UP. I didn’t like Obama and I didn’t riot. I didn’t like President Clinton when he was deemed to have lied and again I didn’t riot. Show me just 1 time when throwing a fit and causing a riot has solved any problem. This country is turning itself inside out and it isn’t Trump’s fault. He isn’t forcing you to behave badly. Personal accountability has been thrown out the window. Our academia has lost its way. It didn’t all happend within the last 100 days. It has been a slow erosion of the difference between right and wrong. Remember the finger waggle? Then there is the media. Never before now would any newsworthy reporter have suggest that a foreign government come and overthrow the US government in an effort to try to save us. Are you kidding me!!! That man should have been dragged off the air by every other person with 1 ounce of common sense because he has none left. People we are in real trouble here and the sad thing is that there is no need for it. The truth has been hidden from us in the past and now that it is right there we can’t stand to see it. So we are going to pretend that up is down and down is up and side to side is backward and forward. We can’t even see what is real anymore and that will destroy us. We won’t need anyone to come and overthrow us because it will be done from within. There are actually those who believe that if Trump is removed from office Hillary will step in. I got news for you, Hillary will never be President and that’s a good thing. What does break my heart is that I believe Trump’s heart is in the right place. He loves this country and he is good at what he does. The problem is what he does is not the way our leaders are use to running things. They want to puff out their chests and have more pomp and circumstance. It’s good to be the king right? Trump sees what needs to be done and just does it. Less than a week ago Dems thought Comey was the worst person on the planet. He had cost them everything. Now he is their poor wounded bird they want to cry over. Good grief, pick a side any side but PICK IT already. These guys flip flop more that Bush ever did and faster too.

    Then there are the Russians, will you finally admit that Romney was right? I get that they got ahold of Hillary’s emails and the truth came out, what I don’t understand is why that’s a bad thing. Shouldn’t the truth have been out the whole time? Shouldn’t we demand the truth from those who are in power over us and paid by us? I understand that some things are classified and why that is necessary. But why does Hillary get to violate the law and get away with it? Others have been jailed for far less. So someone tell me how exactly did the Russians violate our elections. They didn’t change anyones votes, so exactly what did they do to change the election?

    Look, we have a bumpy road ahead. Wouldn’t it be better if we just all strapped in and helped each other survive rather than tear each other apart. When you get down to it we are all the same. We want the same things for ourselves. Race shouldn’t matter. Nothing should give one person more rights than another and we should all be afforded equal opportunity to make something of ourselves. Why are we hurting each other so much?

    You do realize that by wishing Trump to fail that means we all fail. For better or worse he is our President and I would think we would all want it to be for our better. Those who want the worse are just sick. Why would anyone want this country to fail? One thing is for sure, we are in it together. If you fail, so do I. There will be a few who come out on top. It will be those who convinced everyone else that they are more important than the rest of us.

    I have to say, Trump was not my first choice, but none of that matters now. The Clinton’s and the Obama’s are in it to make money now. They will prostitute themselves where ever they can and say what ever they are paid to say. Obama didn’t hate meat when he was President but now it is horrible and wastefulf and the cow farts are a threat to the very existence of mankind. I am still laughing at that one. See what millions of dollars in speaking fees will get someone to say. I thought it was the beginning to a joke, but nope it was real. When did we become so gullible. Some of you watch the media and get your personal opinions from them. The facts don’t really matter anymore. Well they do matter. You can believe it or not but they do matter. Science is real and you can pretend it is something it isn’t. Yes, I am making that argument. Just because you want to believe in a lie it doesn’t mean I have to go along with you. The problem is, those lies have real.consequences. What we believe and how we behave matters. Evil is real. I have heard it’s voice and felt it’s power. You can say it isn’t so but that doesn’t make it so. Saying he isn’t your President is just a waste of time. He is, like it or not a fact is a fact. Trying to pretend something isn’t what it is only hurts you and everyone you touch. When you get enough of you like minded people together the effects are very real for us all. Just keep in mind that mutually assured destruction will ruin you too. Keep the pin in the granade and let’s works towards something positive, together.

      I’ll confess I read all of your short novel here out of pure curiosity and it being a lazy sunday. Honestly, it sounds like a bunch of purely emotionally-driven rambling. I was will to give this donald a chance in the beginning, but he has proven himself to be incompetent and as corrupt as any of the d.c. elite. You keep on worshiping the orange-faced buffoon–maybe someday you’ll learn. Until then, as the donald would say, “grab ’em by the p—y!”

  • commonsense May 13, 2017 at 7:50 am

    Trump has already changed a decade of poor leadership. The stock market is way up and unemployment is the lowest since the Bush era. Executive orders have reversed Obama policies that stifled the economy. Illegal immigration is down 40%. The military and law enforcement has been invigorated. America is safer. Trump will go down in history as a president that strengthened America.

    • comments May 13, 2017 at 1:31 pm

      My god you are thick. You are just dumb. No other way to put it.

      “The stock market is way up and unemployment is the lowest since the Bush era”

      the donald has been in a few months. Things are still operating under obama-era policies. The stock market did nothing but climb under obama. I’m not even a fan of obama, but you are just dumb. I took the bait this time (and other times) but u are on ignore now. have a good life.

  • Koliver31 May 14, 2017 at 2:51 pm

    Yes Trump is our President, unfortunately. He is a disgusting greedy fat slob of a man only Conservatives can be proud of. He was elected by a minority of voters and we don’t have to get over it. Should we get over it like conservatives got over Obama? Conservatives tried to find and create any scandal they could make stick to Obama and they failed. Once he was elected to office they held that infamous meeting where they swore they would oppose anything he did and that was someone without a connection to any sort of political scandal.
    Now we have Trump, the man that ran a racist campaign, refused to release his tax returns, admitted to sexual assault and asked Russia to hack his opponent. It’s been proven many members of his staff had connections with Russia and he himself has lied about what connections he has with Russia. Everyone that has investigated him while in office has been fired. With a little over a 100 days in office he is already considered one of the worst and most corrupt presidents of all time so no we will not get over it.

    Making enemies of the media and FBI was very stupid, I am willing to bet the leaks to the media will start happening fairly soon. Once that happens he won’t keep it together for very long.

    • comments May 14, 2017 at 9:30 pm

      amen. might even get rid of this clown before his term is up. I hope the right-leaning simpletons catch on to this one a lot quicker than they did Bush II. Took them almost the full 8 years to catch on to that one. Bring up Bush II and most of them will talk about it like it was something happened 100 years ago, and immediately shift the topic to obama.

  • ladybugavenger May 15, 2017 at 7:25 am

    All you Trump haters make me smile and I’ll tell you why: I went through life with Obama for 8 years and not one of his policies did anything for ladybug. If I said I didn’t like Obama the world would deem me as s racist (maybe you don’t remember that part) I watched America get soft, give money to other countries, he cared more about illegals than Americans and watched as America became lawlessness.

    I voted for Trump to turn it around and in spite of all the haters he keeps on working to care about Americans, to keep money in America, and to bring back law and order.

    I’m so happy that you all hate Trump and call him names. i hope you feel this way for 8 years.
