  1. Hillary R. Clinton has no one but herself to blame for her loss in this years presidential election.
    If she had addressed that personal e-mail mess and told the truth instead of catching an attitude when she went before the Senate hearings-maybe her credibility could’ve been saved.

    In addition-that FBI POS Comey did her no favors with his last minute bomb.

    Folks simply did not trust Hill. The folks who supported CHUMP are plain RACIST/HATERS.
    So, let us all just sit back/wait and see in which direction this country will be going in–ASS BACKWARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. The Democratic ticket should have been Elizabeth Warren, and Corey Booker. I know it’s water under the bridge, but I think Hillary thought it was her turn (the right of passage). The Dems should have at least had a Hillary/Bernie ticket…maybe she would have had a better chance of winning. Bernie on the ticket most certainly would have brought millions of young voters

  3. I can’t wait to see Skip’s special. I heard Skip say that some of his white friends in Virginia voted for Trump. Hey….to each his own. But I can’t see coal mines opening back up in VA, and if factories are returned (and I hope they are)….the factories will be mostly automated (robots). Which means instead of creating thousands of jobs…..only hundreds of jobs across the board i.e., including numerous factories) will be created

  4. !!!AMERICAHAS SPOKEN IN ITS WAY!!! ((HOWD. Trump ended the U.S status quo?)) Everyone has been blind. But Gov. Bob Ehrlich, Michael Moore andothers, as well as your reading-writer saw coming the undeniable reality. Eventhough, history has stepped on my pen because I used to say! Only two kinds offolks can’t talk predominantly: are Politiciansand Businessmen but the upshotof the 2016 election just challenged my faculty to change that avowal. On theother hand, back to July, I made a statement reminding the Nicholas Machiaveltechniques on D. Trump’s scheme. Mg, at that tme my surroundings cliched me asa chauvinism backer, although afterward, some of them acknowledged thedifference! In fatc, I am just aware of common sense in so many behaviors helpsme to split my emotion from the reality. It’s indeed about time to wonder what realsmartness is! In the course of that scarce election, it seems all and sundrywere deeply mistaken wherever ‘’Stupidity inaudibly turns to Stylishness’’. Whatpowered D. Trump’s wise the top of establishment? The whole society has been utterlyunsighted. True stratum: Sam Wang, professor at Princeton University, haspromised to eat a bug if Trump earns. Subsequently, at a TV show theprof, retained his announcement; Why Experience must be old? Only way to seewhat or unthinkable is coming, we must be able to divide feelings fromrealities. There’s a big difference between Knowledge and Intelligence. Forfuture, let’s be smarter than any state of mind… Versaint
