    A question for those given to suggesting that the most important/perhaps only worthwhile project for those on the left is to thoughtfully & respectfully engage with the views of Intelligent Conservative writers : do you suppose that many conservatives spend their time & energy on respectfully studying intelligent socialist, feminist, liberal etc. writing?

    Also why is it only ever intelligent conservatives that we're supposed to read? If the idea is to better understand the positions that are out there, surely you could learn just as much from reading really stupid conservatives?

    (Spent ages trying to write a serious post addressing roughly those issues, but then decided I'd rather just troll a bit. Felt quite good if I'm being honest).

    oh good.

    Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s adviser, reassured conservatives that everything is going according to plan, saying that the “deconstruction of the administrative state” had begun.

    I think BuzzFeed should retaliate with something devastatingly satirical like "13 mouldy potatoes that look like Donald Trump." You know, something that'll really make him rue the day he ever tangled with them.

    Ha, yeah. Loser liberals can't take that they lost, so resort to mocking POTUS for his physical appearance. Very "liberal" of them, I'm sure! SAD.

    How has Trump measured up to your expectations so far; better, worse, the same?

    it's only been a month, so way too early to give an assessment but not much of a surprise so far, really. i think most people imagined he'd continue to be preoccupied by his never-ending narcissistic quest for adulation while surrendering a sizable chunk of policy to swamp dwellers from the billionaire and far-right classes, which is pretty much what's happened so far.

    A fox news poll last week showed that Trump is more trusted than the media as a whole, however polling also suggests that the American public do place much more trust in specific outlets:

    They ranked The Onion?!

    Although I'm pleased to see more Democrats rated it 'somewhat/very credible' than they did Breitbart or InfoWars, lol.
