    all the "I didn't vote for him" disclaimers coming from his apologists? Seriously, scroll through some of the threads criticizing the PEOTUS. It fairly leaps off the page at you.

    Seems it's already coming apart ... :D

    Invest now in "Don't Blame Me, I Didn't Vote For Him!" hats, bumper stickers, signs etc.

    The other side of that coin is people assuming that any criticism of HRC/Democrats is implicit Trump support.

    So chicken/egg or something.

    Can we finally come to an agreement that those who explicitly or implicitly supported Trump are, in fact, gullible and dumb? Or do I have to keep pretending they're not?

    I didn't vote for him, but I'm glad he's our President rather than Hillary.

    Well, anytime you have the opportunity to elect a man with the impulse control of a five year old commander in chief, you have to take it.

    Big difference in voting for someone and defending someone IMO.

    He's corrupt and close to Putin.

    But the everyday whining about the election is just weak. Time to move on. She lost... And a lot of it was her fault.

    It's not really whining about the election, though; it's whining about him being President. Should they stop whining about a bad President being President? Did those opposed to Obama being President stop whining about him ever? Did W Bush opponents ever stop whining about him?

    nah that's probably poorly worded. But this whole thing over the Russia hack (I hate Russia, but imo it didn't make any difference in the election) and no one blames HRCs campaign for losing its always excuses.

    I'm all for holding Presidents accountable. But the only way to do that is move on. Mostly everyone has here, just more the general hardcore HRC supporters.

    I mean I don't think it had any influence on the outcome but that doesn't mean I think it's acceptable for another country to try and influence the election.

    It's like the game vs Michigan. We didn't lose the game because of a shtty foul call on Brandon Triche. But that doesn't make shtty calls OK.

    Certainly not OK. And anyone who says it is (Errr Trumpppp errr) really needs to look at themselves.

    "Broken window" theory. Even if nothing was stolen, you fix the broken window, else leaving it that way be construed as acceptance. For if you don't address it, you're inviting worse. It doesn't matter whether they influenced the election, what matters is they tried to. And that's what needs to be addressed. A non-response is tantamount to weakness.

    edit: Obama addressed it, even late in his administration, because it's part of the job he took an oath to do. A bigger problem downstream will come when even more conclusive evidence is revealed after Trump is sworn in, and he chooses to do nothing, which will violate the oath. Lincoln called out the army after the shelling of Fort Sumter, in violation of a protocol that said only Congress could do so. But Congress would not take seat for another 2-3 months, so Lincoln acted in accordance with the oath he took, calculating that in a crisis it was better to err on the side of action rather than inaction. And at the risk of overstating the obvious, Trump is no Lincoln.

    I think you are missing the point. Nobody now is making excuses for HRC's loss. We're lamenting the fact that the film-flam man who is probably under Putin's thumb is going to be inaugurated in less than two weeks. That's frightening!

    They've been chanting "Yeah, b-b-b-but, Hillary!" for so long they have nothing else to go with.

    I voted for Trump and im damn proud to have done so.

    nothing on this earth could make me vote for the hildebeast, nothing.

    my states Electoral College votes went to her, so America rising up and telling her to go herself, was a wonderful bullet to have been dodged.

    some may say...GLORIOUS.

    and since im not a spineless arrogant prik, who thinks I know what is best for everyone...I have the luxury of sitting here laughing at all the clueless stoopid arrogant prik liberal flucks.

    and a lot of the clueless are using it as reason why she lost, don't pretend otherwise.

    keep your friends close and your enemies closer...unless youre a liberal. then cry wolf, run & hide and deliver a speech to likeminded folk.

    For the record, that call against Triche played a way bigger role in us losing that FF game than the Russian interference did on the past election.

    Be careful, boys--that beer stuff makes you pee. You might end up with Russian bladder--an overwhelming urge to urinate on a bed.
