For anyone still defending this infant: "Denial".

The infant in this case is the left, I assuming. They're the ones having a prolonged tantrum and retreat into the neighborhood of make believe.

What you just engaged in is "projection", which is a form of denial.

Nothing of the sort. The election was in November.

Bitter leftists have yet to accept the result, so we're slogging through nonsense like Russia and self-medicating with virtue signaling posts like this.

The left is, as always, behaving like small spoiled children. They have no advanced one serious new idea since the election (probably earlier still). It's just one long prolonged scream in the dark. I'm sure it's very comforting for you.

Understandable. We have to protect ourselves from different ideas. Censor the unorthodox. Ban the heretic. Why not just round up dissidents and put them in camps so you'll never have to be triggered again?

Why label it one way or another? The author of the quoted article is by no means a left apologist.

The person occupying the White House is clearly not in command of his own marbles. That doesn't have to be a political statement.

Of course Brooks is a left apologist. He sits at the Time as an ostensible conservative used to attack conservatives. A useful idiot.

imagine for a moment that clinton had won, and she was behaving like trump. would you support and defend her?

There is a crucial distinction between 'how Trump is behaving' and 'how the left fever-dreams Trump is behaving.'

Sure, it's convenient to label what you disagree with.

But when the White House occupant behaves foolishly and capriciously on an almost daily basis, then something is wrong. This doesn't have to be about politics.

Disagreeing with the basic conduct of an office-holder does not necessarily make one rightist or leftist.

One need not label Brooks – just read his work.

Personal foibles are more tolerable than philosophical ones. The true foolishness and capriciousness came from the last administration, and the one before that, and the one before that...

Disagreeing with the conduct of an office-holder does not make one rightist or leftist, but in today's climate, political alignment trumps rationality. Gruber is not expressing his distaste for Trump's approach or conduct. His posts on politics rarely contain any thought, only mood-affiliated resentment.

oh, and keep in mind, bob corker, who i don't think is part of 'the left,' has said that the white house is in a downward spiral.

You just can't pretend that the NYT, which is owned by a Mexican billionaire, or CNN, which is owned by a Saudi Prince (Time Warner), have the USA's interest at heart.

For example, did you know that the Obama Admin shared classified information with Russia as little as three months ago?

IS THIS A SURRENDER OR A REBEL?:
The amount of lies the FAKE NEWS media tells is out of control.

As long as the left believes and promotes lies, no one will believe you about Trump's real issues.

Funny how you leave out that FOX News is partially own by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. I guess that doesn't fit with your narrative.

What about Rupert Murdoch? What "best interest at heart" do you think he holds for the US and its people? He's a bitter, Australian capitalist that *only* cares about making money. If that means the rest of the world burning, then that's what he'll do to turn the most profit.

Trump's issues fall squarely with Trump being Trump.
