If he gets a third SCOTUS nomination, the Court will be Conservative for my foreseeable lifetime.
    Which will check/balance the fact that more of the country is going Blue. Which means more of nothing getting done. Which means the status quo for your, and my, foreseeable lifetime.

    & Really can you blame him? Because, since the 1st minute of the inauguration, He's been under constant attack from every angle. and not just from the Dems either.

    rino Republicans like Paul Ryan & The Alzeheimers patient McCain (who called for a total repeal of Obamacare and Closing open borders, for the last damn decade) But, didn't do shit to fix it, when they had the chance, slow walked the agenda from the get-go.

    Then you've got the totally biased far-left, media assholes and their shills grandstanding, lying by commission and omission, and the "do no evil" big -tech global oligarchs, censuring all opposition and creating algorithms.... Promoting the "WHITE BAD.....Everyone else good" Narrative....

    All things considered....Have to give him a B- and Thank God, that someone in the GOP finally grew some balls.
    Kind of surprised you only gave him a B-; but agree that from day one the Dems have been trying to find grounds for impeachment.

    Next go round, I think he should just dump the GOP & go it alone, as a 3rd Party.....

    They will probably run a Prog Mitt Romney or Cat-lady John Kasich type against him anyway.....So, He should get in front of it Now, and start beating them over the head, for 2 years.....

    It's full of Neocon dual-citizens and Checked Pant Republicans, who are far, too self-important and to wed to the current system, to be able to recognize, the flashing red exit sign, off this highway to Hell... that Trump represents,

    I don’t agree with the early & constant calls for impeachment. Currently there is no evidence if the commission of a high crime or misdemeanor. Congress should not try to impeach POTUS just because they don’t like him, they can ... they can impeach him because they don’t like the color of his tie, that is their prerogative. However, it is totally inappropriate.

    Personally, I never liked DJT and never considered him a true conservative. In fact, I think he's an obnoxious pig...always have. The ONLY reason I voted for him was because we have a two party system, and the only realistic way to provide my support towards gaining/maintaining a conservative SCOTUS was to vote for him.

    I know a lot of true conservatives who, out of principle alone, consistently vote for libertarians...and consistently lose. I've always reminded these people that when the socialists finally take over our country, at least they can hold their head up hi and proudly boast that they have never voted for anyone who has had a remote chance of earning more than 5% of the vote.

    I don’t think he would win. I think he could effectively prevent a GOP president (like Perot) but you would end up with a Democrat in the White House.

    And honestly, I think the 3 equal branches of government & checks and balances has been DJTs biggest issue. Unlike being the head of your own private company, POTUS just can’t do everything / anything he wants.

    Want a border wall? Need funding from Congress.

    Want an immigration ban? Have to do it in accordance with the law or the courts will strike it.

    On one hand, having a non-career politician is refreshing, on the other ... the impression is that he actually is a poor negotiator, he doesn’t know how to get things done unless he is holding all the cards which in our system .. you almost never will. The closest he cane was 2017-18 with a Republican House and Senate.

    He probably could have done a lot more in the last two years if he wasn’t the proverbial bull in a china shop.

    It's no longer the 90s and people that spend too much time in the Baltimore-Washington Captial Region, and read and believe the legacy media, still vastly underestimate his support.

    Do you still think Jeb Bush is a lock to win the Republican Primary and that Hillary Clinton has a 98% chance of winning the 2016 election?
