I think it's real nice, that this president got through a whole tweet, ceremony, or any public uttering, without dissing someone or bragging about his own 'accomplishments'. (clap)

How are YOU any different than our President where YOU couldn't even get through writing a post without taking a jab at our country's President after watching the video of our President praising Rosa Parks??
Oh and please don't bother writing "he's our President he should ACT Presidential"....yeah where has ACTING Presidential gotten our country ever since JFK was assassinated.....20 Trillion in debt, N Korea on the verge of having nuclear weapons, ISIS, just about half of our country RELIANT on the government, ILLEGAL immigrants being embolden because of liberal controlled "sanctuary" cities, as well as liberals in our country being indoctrinated to "feel"/think that it's WRONG for working citizens in our great country to be able to KEEP more of their hard earned money that they've earned by WORKING hard to achieve their American Dream.

If all you liberals hate the impending tax cuts of having more money in your paychecks or for your businesses...then SIMPLY fork that money back to the Government(who apparently knows better where to spend YOUR money than you think YOU do) when filing your taxes.

Oh, that was a jab? (nme)

He is rather proud of his nasty digs at others, seems to me. Probably thinks he's better at it than anyone ever, in the entire history of the world.
I do believe the president has been implored by some of his advisors, to try and and refrain from the petulant, petty behavior he so often displays. Me, I had no expectation that he would suddenly change after being sworn into office. Nor have I ever written or said anything about him acting "presidential"....

Look Piper, for over 30 plus years Trump has been a famous public figure because of his success as a young billionaire businessman, who was also known for his outspoken political views/beliefs, as well as being against BOTH political party's at times because of how he felt they as our elected politicians were running/RUINING our great country with their policies.... as well as Trump ALWAYS being known for his crass way of talking to our "msm" who he knew reported falsely about him back then, and known for his crass way of fighting back IN THE SAME MANNER as those who would throw the 1st punch at him by making fun of his physical looks...which Rosie O'Donnell did on live TV back then when she was on The View, so Trump fought back in the SAME juvenile manner that Rosie could relate to by acting just as juvenile as she did..by attacking HER physical looks.

Look, you liberal feminists know damn well that no matter who the GOP candidate was to run against Hillary Clinton(and win because of how UNLIKABLE and corrupt the Clintons are)...you Feminist would have being protesting in the streets with your pink hats and v a g i n a as you did towards Trump ONLY because a Republican was elected as our POTUS and you all know it.

Oh I can only imagine the deranged OUTRAGE and even more violent riots in the streets by you leftists had Jeb BUSH been the GOP nominee who won over Hillary Clinton...man you "tolerant" liberals would have gone even more bat shit crazy over another BUSH being our POTUS with your signs of "no blood for oil" etc. etc. and posting on-line that you'd rather Trump be our CIC than another BUSH blah, blah, blah.

Eh the bottom line is that you supposed "tolerant of all" progressives who've HIJACKED the Democrat party, are IN FACT the most intolerant people in our country...where you all ONLY care about YOUR party being in power just to further YOUR party's "progressive" agenda to fundamentally CHANGE our great country into your vision of how YOU ALL "feel" we should live our lives under YOUR rules/laws.<iframe width="854" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/DSIQZFHharA" frameborder="0" gesture="media" allow="encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

You politically ILL INFORMED nuts on the left actually buy into the political opinions of the celebrities you all IDOLIZE.
The Kardashian family is against WE THE PEOPLE owning guns to protect OUR families BECAUSE according to Kim... guns actually can like kill people...and according to the wicked smaaaaat anti-gun Kim Kardashian who convinced her sisters to not have guns in their homes to protect themselves, she ACTUALLY said..."that's why we have bodyguards."... being a wealthy OUT OF TOUCH nitwit living in her own bubble that her bodyguards all have GUNS to protect HER.

Oh please, you know damn well that our MSM and the Democrat politicians in office (the majority of them being elderly lifer career politicians) portray your party as being the political party who is "tolerant of all"...when in fact the Democrat party of today is ONLY tolerant towards their fellow Americans who agree with their "progressive" leftist Socialist agenda to "fundamentally transform America".
The Democrat politicians of today also use JFK(d) as a tool in their shed to spread their Socialist message. because they KNOW their IGNORANT base hasn't a clue that even though JFK was a Democrat back then, he was actually a fiscal CONSERVATIVE.....

No, I do not know of anyone who has portrayed the Democratic party as "tolerant of all". Personally, I find many who most share my views to be quite intolerant. "THE MOST INTOLERANT and JUDGMENTAL people in country", no.

The tax rates were a LOT higher, back when JFK proposed the cuts that were eventually implemented. He also managed to convince Congress to increase the minimum wage, expand unemployment benefits, boost Social Security benefits, and lay the groundwork for the passing of the Civil Right's Act and Medicare program.

No wrong again Piper.... JFK as our CIC even though a Democrat POTUS back then, was in FACT a fiscal conservative(did you even watch the video I posted?). You are confusing JFK with JBL, where JBL(a known democrat racist politician prior to being our country's VP and eventual POTUS), as our CIC put his policy of the "great society" into place, to quote "keep those n****ers voting democrat for LIFE.

Also as a History lesson for you, JFK did NOT initiate or lay the ground works for the Civil Right Act that LBJ eventually HAD to sign into law after JFK was assonated ...it was actually DDE(R) who did so as our country's CIC and JFK also agreeing with DDE, thus why LBJ had to sign it into law being a RACIST.... but then as our CIC enacting HIS policy of the "great society" to keep those "n** voting Democrat for life.

In response to “No, not "wrong" //Ms// Gronk...

Typical for a liberal to purposely avoid telling me that I was wrong about the Republican party being the political party who first initiated the Civil Rights Act...not to mention that it was the Republican party who FIRST initiated the legislation for women to have the right to VOTE, or that the Republican Party was FORMED under President Lincoln to free the slaves from their DEMOCRAT Masters etc. etc. etc.

Nope instead you American History challenged liberals always just blindly IGNORANTLY believe/buy into WHATEVER you're told to believe by your "Progressive" teachers/professors, our liberal controlled MSM and our dumb as a stump celebrities in Hollyweird(mostly HS drop outs) who as celebrities spew their NONSENSICAL political opinions that make NO SENSE at all whatsoever to the politically INFORMED citizens in our great country...where you liberals all clap in unison like trained seals whenever a celebrity gives their HS dropout mentally opinion about politics.

Eh notice how there were NO RIOTS in the streets by Conservatives/Republicans after Moore lost that special election to a Democrat in the Red state of Alabama ...that's because we have dignity/class and RESPECT the outcome of our elections even when our chosen candidate loses an election.

The UPSIDE of Roy Moore losing... is that there were no riots in the streets, as there would have been had he won, thus Moore as the Republican candidate losing that special election ACTUALY saved the state of Alabama millions of tax dollars by their state not having to pay their police officers, firefighters OVERTIME pay to protect their state from the liberal rioters and looters of business had he won.
So basically the citizens of Alabama dodged a bullet by electing a Democrat is this special election, because they knew had Moore won what the consequences would have been for their state...thus biding their time until 2020 when they're no longer IN THE SPOT LIGHT of who they choose to as their US Senator to represent them.

I hope you all who were supposedly all so upset/concerned about Moore's "victims" 40 years, FOLLOW through on your OUTRAGE to bring justice for his victims now that he lost that special election. Eh my guess is doubtful that you all who were OUTRAGED will follow through now that Moore lost....I hope I'm wrong this time.

Neither one of us are really wrong, concerning the Civil Rights Act. I said Kennedy laid the groundwork for it being passed, which he did. Not alone, and certainly with the support of many Republicans.

I'm sure we all know by now, how IGNORANT, ILL INFORMED, INTOLERANT and all around vile you think "liberals" are. You probably don't need to say it, almost every damn time you post your OPINION.

I don't think there will be any justice for Roy Moore's alleged victims, aside from him not winning a seat in the Senate.

We have long expected acknowledgements of such historical milestones from our presidents. They are niceties, politic, and routine. Trump no more remembered this on his own than I or the vast majority of other Americans did. Nor should he be expected to. It was a nice statement, certainly, but deserving neither of "pride" nor the disdain and outright vitriol posted by many who responded to this tweet.
