Disgraceful. Lincoln was one of the best. Trump is in the running for worst president ever. W may still be winning that race. I think John Tyler was the one rumored to have fathered several children via slave-rape?

Probably true, greatest president of our time, the political hit job being run is tearing the fabric of our nation apart ...

Lincoln was facing the break up of the union over slavery..

Trump is facing the break up of the union over nothing really.

We are in the predawn days of a civil war.

Its not hard to figure out whats happening, its interesting being in the middle of it versus looking back 150 years....

They dumb, look at comrade Fat Andy's post in this thread for exhibit A.

To be fair, Trump did free us all from Hillary. I can't believe she started that whole Birther thing, stole the nomination from Bernie, and had to start the RussiaHoax coup attempt when she got caught - using the same people that got her off on the private server thing that would have sent anyone else to jail on felony charges. It really makes me wonder if the other rumors are true.

Seth Rich died for you.

People are still quoting Lincoln 150 years after he was killed. I can't imagine anybody quoting anything Trump ever said 10 years from now.

Andrea is voting his tax cut... he would say the same about the Zombie Charlie Manson if that's who gave him the tax cut.

Of course, there is that Lincoln-esque Trump quote, "Four score and seven Big Macs ago...".

Corruption

Undermining our Democratic Institutions and unraveling 50 years of history are all Nothing to Republicans.

Let's see where the GOP sample came from: David Duke HQ, Louisiana; the Jeff Davis Confederate Veterans Families Post, HQ, Montgomery Alabama, and the Aryan Militia Regiment, Cheyene Wyoming? No surprises here!

From Lee Atwater's race-baiting days (1970s-80s) and even before, the GOP migrated away from its being the "Party of Lincoln" and towards its being the "Party of David Duke". Under Tchump, the migration is essentially complete, and now the GOP is migrating to become the "Party for Autocrats". Why would any loyal member of such a party rank Lincoln above Tchump??

Trumpublicans were asked whether Trump, who they believe has been sent by God to help save white Americans. Is better than a character they heard about who "freed the slaves"?

I'm sure we're all shocked by the results.

That's not unexpected. After all, Lincoln did free the slaves.

Lincoln freed the slaves...

BUT

Trump gave them jobs...

After 57 years of promises to minority Americans, the Democrat Party, the party of Civil Rights, Jim Crow laws and the KKK as blacks and other minorities embittered lives circled around the drain of the American dream.

What the Democrats had promised in the last 57 years...

Trump delivered in three.

Well, after having so many Libs think Obama is greater than Jesus, there is no question at as to why Reps are doing it to Trump. What one party does when they aren't in power, the other party does when they aren't in power.

STRAWMAN ALERT!

If you'll recall...referring to Obama as the Messiah, with one or two exceptions, was exclusively a Republican construct.

All these things were ongoing from Obama.

Trump didn't create them. They were bequeathed to him.

Donald Trump isn't Lincoln.

Donald Trump is the man who sleeps with porn stars when his wife is nursing and then pays hush money while lying about paying hush money.

"Since President Donald Trump took office:
The economy added 6 million jobs,"

It is a fact that in the last 3 years of Barrack Obama's presidency he added more jobs than Trump has added in his first 3 years of his presidency. Trump rides the Obama economy success, it's easy to look successful when you inherit an economy growing, creating millions of jobs, etc. Gotta wonder how Trump would have done if he inherited the economy Obama did.
Say whatever you want but Obama brought us back from the brink of depression with the Republicans kicking and screaming all the way. Trump is not now and never will be half the President Obama was. He's not half the man Obama is. Trump is a bad joke while Obama was a class act.
