Does anyone here who voted for Trump now regret it?

To answer Bear's question, I doubt that Trump voters regret their decision. The ones I know seem to believe Trump is necessary for the next Supreme Court Selection. It's very disheartening to realize our way of life will be determined by only those who want to punish gay people and prevent legal safe abortion and contraception. Currently there are no laws forcing anyone to be gay, transgendered or bi, and no one is forcing pregnant girls or women to have an abortion. But for the faux cristian factions that's not good enough.....they want govt in our bedrooms and compulsory worship of corporate profiteering. That's what they think Jesus wanted.

1, it's more than a handful. My family members alone are more than a handful, let alone the thousands and thousands of unique posters I've read submissions by, not to mention the hundreds of articles I've read by pro-Trump journalists and bloggers.

2, I have no reason to believe that any of these people are lying or are in fact miscreants. They certainly don't seem to be lying, and one wonders why they would go to the effort of doing so simply to make themselves seem as horrible as they do.

Oh, there are plenty of morons on the left, for sure. But the level of pure vitriol and hate on display? The bigotry, xenophobia, and avarice? There is literally no comparison whatsoever.

My immediate family (kids& I) thinks Trump is preposterous, but both kids report BIG stock dividends recently, which enhance Christmas plans.

Nobody voted for him on my side of the family. We had two Steins and a Libertarian abstainer.

One child won’t allow Trump on the teev.

I don’t talk politics with the extended family, a few of which I’m pretty sure voted for Trump. My FB page reveals hearty support of The Bern, but they don’t ask; I don’t tell.

Despicable May regrets offering fart a state visit so early on. They're still keeping the actual dates secret because the protests will be spectacular. This might be the only state visit held behind closed doors and not reported on until after the event.

@izzythepush,
Remember the cheering crowds in London when Clinton and Obama visited over there? Seems like a whole world ago now.

@Blickers,
The language used by May to publicly criticise Trump's Nazi tweets is unprecedented in post war relations.

And what May is saying is pretty mild compared to the other parties.

I guess Trump's philosophy is to keep pushing on the tweets until what would be considered outrageous a year ago becomes "the new normal" today and continuing the process so that what would be considered outrageous now will be established as "the new normal" a year from now.

Just as historians regard Hitler's edge was that he discovered the new medium of radio and used it as nobody had before, Trump thinks he can Twitter the opposition into submission. So far it's worked. But events in the Mueller investigation are getting away from Trump now.

@Blickers,
People across the political divide are seriously considering whether America can still be considered an ally. The optimists say that UK/US relations are bigger than Trump, but we have a president who retweets a Nazi group whose supporters have murdered our MPs.

Imagine the fuss if we'd given Lee Harvey Oswald a knighthood.

@izzythepush,
I love how you put retweeting a post by a president on the same level as giving a knighthood by the queen. That's sort of way, way off and at the same time disturbingly appropriate... Drunk

He retweeted a post by an organisation whose supporters murdered Jo Cox. He supports terrorists.

I can fully understand the doubts.

You folks just don't get it.

They are all (Democrats and Republicans) the American aristocracy who care far more for their power and status than for the plight of those they supposedly represent.

You still insist on a childishly tribal Manichean either or: Good (My tribe) vs Bad (The other tribe)

There is Good and Evil in the world but both are invested in individuals, not groups.

Just what is he, other than someone who leads the tribe you oppose?

Just what has he done since he was sworn in that is so heinous?

Surely you can outline his transgressions that are not political in nature.

His favoring a given tax bill is not sin against humanity.

His banning travel from 7 Muslim nations is not a sin against humanity.

Just what is the nature of his evil? He wasn't tough enough on neo-nazis for you?

The clowns who went over the top accusing Obama of surrendering the US to Muslims and Commies are not really that much different than most of you Trump Haters.

Your analogy is structurally sound but somewhat exaggerated.

As has been said, a retweet is not on par with a knighthood. Also the murder of the MP was not as big a deal to people as the JFK shooting. Ultimately, of course, a life is a life, but the level of devastation in the US was greater.

Pragmatists say: what other options have the Brits got right now? except to hope Trump offers a favorable trade deal and yet stays out of your domestic business?

@Kolyo,
It's only exaggerated if you fail to contrast the dignified stateswomanlike monarchy of Liz with the extremely racist, corrupt and incompetent presidency of fart.

In those circumstances she would need to do something pretty extreme to have the same effect.

Btw, the one question about the Kennedy assassination that really stands out over here is, what the **** is a book depository?

We can have a referendum post Brexit, rejoin the EU and get the foreign, occupying troops out of our country.

Says the guy who's voted for Republicans exclusively for how many presidential elections now?

@engineer,
Agreed. And he's just getting started. Love it.

IMHO: People who think otherwise are brainwashed by the MSM.
