    So telling folks what we need to get over now, lol. How do you know this by the way? Have you hired a few data scientist to go threw the data? You have polled ever voter?

    I have a pretty good idea why he was elected, has little to do with Hillary Clinton and a whole lot to do with fear and ignorance. That's just my opinion, unlike you that has vast amounts of data on voters:lmao:

    A) that was hysterical
    B) guy not only looks just like TC but mannerisms are perfect and voice is nearly so
    C) Even more impressive than his impression was his ability to run that entire time and do so while giving that speech. I would have had a stroke
    D) Thanks for posting. I like the levity

    I'll tell you what got Trump elected in 2 words. I will then tell you what will get him Re-elected in 5 words.

    2016- Justice Scalia

    2020- Justice Ginsburg and the economy

    Way to over analyze it to find a way to be red assed, and offended, forgot to call me a lemming. You must be running for the local president of the perpetually offended club in A squared.

    He can justify it and question the integrity of anyone that does not agree.

    That's the thing though, no one can justify it. For members of Congress to file an Amiscus Brief on a suit they are not a part of, threatening them that if they did not rule in what they perceive to be a "favorable ruling" that they would change the make up of the highest court until it fits their liking.

    That isn't pleading a case and arguing in defense of the defendants, that is Straight Outta Hampton gangster speak. Almost mafia in their threat.

    The entire nation should be enraged about it.

    I saw the video and the only punk b---h was Cuomo. The whole time he was ranting he was surrounded by protection. Real big guy..real big mouth. My first thought was good thing his parents weren't alive to see either of their assclown sons. Harsh but true. Hey Fredo I hope you grew some chest hair for all the effort you put into trying to be a big man other wise you wasted your time.

    do you honestly believe that had Dems not put all their eggs in the basket of Deplorable Herself; the would not have won? They picked the ONE candidate who was equally as or more dislike-able than Trump. Their abject failure to develop an heir to the throne was astounding.

    Come on now, it has taken him 2 1/2 years to finally figure out how she lost.

    Keeping that in mind, it will be 2023 before we learn how they lost again.

    Hillary lost a predetermined(by them) election before the campaigns ever launched. She did not run on socialistic views, for the most part, she ran on primarily Democratic talking points but she was hated by far more than wanted to vote for her. I'll never give in to popular vote numbers until voting is verified in some form.

    Look at what that party is running on now. Bernie actually looks like the sane one of the bunch, and that's not saying much.

    Cambridge Analytica

    What they did was fascinating IMO. What Trump did, which was really Steve Bannon was use Data to target the people they(Trumps Campaign) called the persuade-ables. I would love to see their algorithms and data models on how they choose the 2 to 3 percent they targeted in Penn, MI, Wis and Oh.

    To win an election now all one has to do is flip 2 to 3% of voters in a handful of states. How did they do it? Easy with facebook and a survey that not only gave them your data, but access to your friends data.

    Cambridge Analytica states they have 5000 data points on every American, using this data and their Machine Learning algorithms they were able to target the "persuade-ables" on Facebook and flip them to their guy. Trump's team paid more CPM(Cost Per Impression) than Clinton. In simple terms Trump out bid Clinton for ad space on Facebook. FYI Obama started this, Trump(Bannon) perfected it IMO.

    I never understood some of the post shared on facebook back then, but i get it now.

    Those 2-3% are the who i am talking about when I say "ignorance and fear"

    Cambridge Analytica knew how all you lemmings were going to vote:lmao2:

    Facebook didn't influence me :lol:

    I voted Cruz in the primary, my vote was against Clinton and for SCOTUS pick and will be against whoever makes it on the ballot out of the Fab 20 or however many they have left.

    I didn't have any control over the election, IL is and always will be a blue state. Hillary won our electoral points.

    Care to answer how you feel about the Congressional Dems threatening the SCOTUS to vote the right way or they will fix it for them?

    Correct because you are not a "persuade-ables"

    Correct Ill is not a swing state

    When one party is not in control in the senate they act like ass-clowns. Dem's in the senate are acting like Ass-clowns
