Well, I guess that Trump knows what to do, now doesn’t he?

Courtesy of CNN:

A new Marist College poll finds that 20% of Americans rate President Donald Trump’s job performance as excellent, 20% as pretty good, 13% as only fair and 45% as poor.  

There is, not surprisingly, a large gap between how members of the two parties view Trump. Although only 2% of Democrats say Trump is doing an excellent job, 49% of Republicans do. Democrats are far more likely to give a poor rating at 80% compared to 6% of Republicans.

What still makes Trump unique though is the amount of intensity his detractors have for him. You might say many strongly dislike him. The excellent, pretty good, only fair and poor scale allows us to get at that because it’s been asked for every president since President John Kennedy.

Trump is as strongly disliked as President Richard Nixon was when he resigned the presidency 44 years ago this week. Back then, 45% of people said Nixon was doing a poor job as president in a Harris poll.

Among Democrats, the intensity of the dislike toward Trump is even deeper today than it was against Nixon back in 1974. Back in 1974, 70% of those who said they voted for Democrat George McGovern in 1972 (37% of the sample) gave Nixon a poor rating. That’s 10 percentage points below the 80% of Democrats (35% of the Marist sample) who give Trump a poor rating today.

Yeah, we know Trump is not going ANYWHERE voluntarily. 

Terrible poll numbers, impeachment, even indictments, won’t matter. Trump will still have to be dragged kicking and screaming from the best gig he has ever had. 

I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready to grab a plump orange leg and start yanking if anybody needs a hand.

    FLAG: The Twitter accounts of @NBCNews’ @PeterAlexander & @kwelkernbc have been compromised. Please do not click any links in DMs or tweets.
    5:01 AM – Aug 12, 2018

    “Turkish Cyber Army” “Hackers took over the Twitter account of NBC journalist Peter Alexander on Sunday and directed a series of threatening messages at President Trump. “Mr Trump, we will tear down blood vessels of those who are hostiles to TURKIYE,” one message from the “Turkish Cyber Army” read. “No one can take down our country,” the hackers wrote. Apparently in response to Trump’s tariffs against Turkey, the hackers accused the U.S. of trying to “defeat” Turkey with an “economic crisis.” Several other tweets were sent out in Turkish. NBC News confirmed the cyber attack on Alexander’s account and said the account of White House correspondent Kristen Welker had also “been compromised.””<TDB

    “there is no one federal law prohibiting a singular crime known as “obstruction.” To the contrary, federal law forbids a wide range of activities — threatening or harassing witnesses; bribing jurors, federal officials, or witnesses; lying to federal investigators or under oath; and kidnapping the family members of a federal judge, just to name of few — which can all be lumped under the broad heading “obstruction of justice.”

    One of the broadest of these obstruction laws provides that “whoever corruptly…influences, obstructs, or impedes or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede the due and proper administration of the law under which any pending proceeding is being had before any department or agency of the United States” ”

    “Oh, he’s talking about us! He’s loves us! And the crowd cheers. And it makes him feel good. Important. Loved. Righteous. He’s still got it.”

    “Numerous players (i.e. black players)…
    …want to show their “outrage” (in quote marks, to delineate that their concerns are fake. Not valid. Not real. Not like white people’s outrage, not like his own supporters’ rage. Black people, you see, they don’t feel things like you and I do, they don’t love their own kids, their families, their friends, their community or nation, not like we do. That’s what the plantation owners used to say when they sold off black children to other slavers. They’re not like us. That’s why their outrage is in quotes, because it’s not like ours)…
    “That ignorance, that attitude, that dismissal, that is exactly what those players are protesting. The centuries of bigotry and racism and oppression that leads directly to that privileged blindness, that right there. That’s the thing. That’s the root of it. That’s the very essence, right there.” “These white conservatives, they’re all mad, pissed off, they have no idea why and they don’t care. Pissed off is an identity, the identity, of modern conservatives. They’re always mad about something, always certain they are being attacked, diminished, made lesser somehow, under assault, being invaded and violated.

    It’s who they are.” “Christianity rakes in billions, tax free, and builds itself massive monuments of gold and steel ten stories high.” “They’re white and Christian and straight, this entire country is built around them. ” “Listen to his speeches. Look at his actions. That’s how he got elected. That’s exactly what he tells his supporters. You’re the victims. “They” are taking your money, your jobs, your religion, your freedom, and your country away from you. I’m gonna give it back to you. That was his whole campaign. Take back America for real Americans, right? Real Americans just like them.” “The refugees desperately fleeing actual horror and persecution? Screw ‘em.”

    If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”

    “This is the philosophy of modern conservatism: I got mine, fuck you.

    This is the core of their horrible selfish religion: I’m saved, you can burn in hell.” “This is the very core of modern Republicanism where everything is for profit, prisons, healthcare, education, religion, civil rights, equality, justice, liberty, all of it for MonEy.” Loser.”

    “I will continue to resist him. I will fight and tell the truth about him. I’m not going to allow him to somehow intimidate me. I don’t care what he says about me. I know who I am. I know what I do. I am the ranking member of the Financial Services Committee of the United States House of Representatives” ““I have been after him from the minute he revealed himself and defined himself when he was running for office, when he disrespected women and talked about grabbing women by their private parts. This is a lying, deplorable, divisive, dangerous man who does not deserve to be the president of the United States. He can say anything he wants to say about me,” “So let him continue to try and frighten people, to scare people, to call folks names. We are going to stay on the issues and talk about health care,” Waters declared. “We are not going to stop. [He can] call me whatever he wants to, it is not going to intimidate me.” ” 2020 is coming up. I believe that American people are going to do the right thing for our country, stand up for what is right and get rid of this man who is embarrassing us all.”

    ““Reverend, let me explain this” Stewart snarled. “People don’t care what happened 150 years ago. Historians love this stuff. I love history, but at the end of the day, we need to look at what the problems are today, and you mentioned that it was only people of a certain race who were facing these challenges, with their education, their health care, their jobs, everything else”

    “You’ve made a career out of dividing people by race, you’ve been a race hustler your entire career, you’ve made a lot of money at it, you haven’t even bothered to pay your taxes, and all you do is divide Americans by race,” Stewart ranted.”

    ” Sharpton exclaimed. “I’ll defend myself standing up for racial justice. I’ll give you an opportunity again to defend your statement, defending and praising Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, not 150 years ago, a year ago, you’re running for the Senate now. I’m asking you about what you said a year ago. You can call me whatever name you want, that’s fine. You’re saying that you’re running for Senate, you’re saying that we shouldn’t go back 150 years, you went back 150 years, a year ago.””

    Actually I think people “dislike” trump more than Nixon. What Nixon did, looks more like some small time crook compared to all the damage trump has done to this country.

    Also trump has stolen more money from the taxpayers than Nixon ever did.
