This should be interesting.

He is getting very bad advice. Does he think conservatives voted for him so he could cave to the RINOs who did not? He is killing his chances to hold the House next year.

It’s not advice.
It’s him. It’s the way he is, and the way he’s always been.
They made him look foolish, so they must pay.

Super-sized mistake , if an accurate report. IMO, unimaginable.

News Flash: Trump is a populist, not a conservative.

Actually, according to his poll numbers, he’s a un-populist.
I think this next one is my favourite :

Trump is just being true to his real nature – a self-centered big-mouthed New York leftist. The angst around here as Trump continues to reveal himself for what he really is will be something to behold.

I seem to be detecting some buyer’s remorse here…or maybe just angst in their pants.

Trump really screwed up with this one. The Guys in the Freedom Caucus are in very “Safe” Districts. His threat is only going to be greeted with laughs. I am a trump supporter, but sometimes I wish he would run his proposed Tweets by some of his staff before he cranks them out. Ronald Reagan had an eleventh Commandment about not talking ill of fellow Republicans. Trump would do well to remember that.

It’s real alright.

Unwise, to be polite about it. “Real stupid” to be more blunt, and to be frank about it, he’s starting to piss me off.

You know, sometimes things are what they are. We heard the same excuse when Trump was pushing Ryancare. He said what he said; you can bull sh*t all you want. Trump is destroying his support.

That 3 d chess nonsense is a way to hide his bad mistakes.

Although, I will say I think he does do that..and he is a master troller.

Actually, he’s just baiting you guys.
He’s a master baiter.
So – who’s responsible for this calumny??

It seems no matter what we do, the left always manages to put in a fox in the henhouse.

The left put this fox in your henhouse.
Or are you just brooding?

To: Tea Party Terrorist

Washing my hands of Trump until he gets his head out of his ass.

Thank you ever so much for that mental picture.

This is grade A stupidity.

His single-payer plan is going to be the best single-payer plan, folks.

So – what are ya gonna do about it?

To: Tea Party Terrorist

Unsubscribed from all Trump email lists.

Oh, that’ll show him.

There will be no further contributions.

He already HAS your money, dumbass.

Trump doesn’t want me on his team? Fine with me. His team is obviously named “NeoRhinos” anyway. I’m not interested in being a part of it.

I think that is becoming increasingly clear. Too much emotion and not enough discipline. Not a good combo.

As a billionaire, he got used to saying and doing whatever he wanted and greedy sycophants would cheer him on. Different ball game in politics.

“The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda.”

We can only hope…. As it turns out, the republican agenda is not a whole lot different from the dumocrap agenda…. More government, more regulation, more immigration and a lot more of McCain, McConnell and every other “one worlder” they can find…..

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH..!!! We need a new party..

Duh, duh. duh.

To: Tea Party Terrorist

Note to Trump: Behind the Freedom Caucus, in the grass roots, are all the deplorables who elected you. Why do you insist on biting the hand that literally made your presidency,

Because he’s Trump.

It’s what he does.

when you should be after Ryan and the GOP-RINO elite who tried to prevent your presidency.

His tweet paints them as a bunch of uncrompromising wacko kooks.


He needs to clarify and narrow his criticism and quickly.

I’ll be tuning into Hannity to hopefully clear this mess up.

Yeah –  tune into Hannity.  That should do it.
To: TheStickman

Also, Trump did not put out a “crap bill”. Lyin’ Ryan did.

So Trump is incapable of reading? Who knew.

What’s Trump supposed to do? He wants to get things done.


Since when? As we all know last Friday after the vote for TrumpCare was pulled again – Trump said that he was done with this for now. He’s “moving on”

The only thing Trump is moving on here is his threats against conservatives.

  1. When so much angst about Trump out there from his own party, a special award for diving into this cesspool to show more is due here. I admit going into freeperville myself every now and then but it doesn’t take long to realize that I don’t need to do this to myself, “Tommy’s” there, so I don’t have to! Kudos!

  2. But of course, the precious snowflakes of FR *had* to vote for Trump, because everyone was mocking them for being gullible morons.

    So it goes.

  3. I love how anything they don’t like is automatically equated with liberalism. “The Left” is the boogeyman they tell themselves stories about around the campfire.

  4. It is increasingly obvious that what is happening to the GOP in general, and the alliance of Masculine Anger-Driven Neo-fascist Egregiously Stupid Superpatriots (MADNESS) that supports Free Republic in particular, is the lack of a definable common enemy. Without Obama, and without Clinton, they just haven’t figured out who to reflexively blame everything on. Hence the circular firing squad. In the absence of a Clinton, Kennedy, Immanent Muslim Attack, or Obama to focus upon they are are at a loss. In the face of an ineffectual and uninspiring Trump administration, even their undying hatred of Warren has enough energy to fuel the conspiracies that are vital to supporting their worldview.

    Can anyone lay odds on the likelihood that the flailing and chaos that seems to define the Trumpian “strategy” to governance will cause the always fractious Freeper coalition to Whig-out faster than they can identify the next unifying political enemy? As it is, Free Republic has already purged itself down to JimRob and a couple hundred morons trying to relive the glory days of the Gingrich Revolution.If JimRob starts zotting the dissent, who will bankroll the next freepathon?
