Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.
Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.
Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.
Conservative agenda, not to mention Trump being ‘their president’, has the liberal lunatics at the democraticunderground in full meltdown. Okay, they have been that way since after Hillary tanked in November but their angst appears to be growing and causing untold amounts of mental anguish to them.
One of the democraticunderground members is frothing at the mouth. Spittle must have been flying as he typed madness, unhingled, paranoid, unstable and lunatic.

We can't sustain this level of madness from Trump for the next 4 years. Dare I say it, but.....
...we can't even sustain it for the next 2 years.
I know everyone is saying we need to prepare for the 2018 midterms. And we absolutely need to prepare for the 2018 midterms. They are crucial. They are critical.
But even so, those are still over 15 months away at this point. Trump has been in office for just a little over 6 months.
And in those 6 months, Trump has proven himself to be far and away the most mentally unstable, mentally unhinged and entirely incompetent individual to ever hold the office of the US Presidency. No one, not even Nixon at his most paranoid, is even close to Trump's level.
It is a truly unprecedented situation.
This is at a point where it should transcend politics and partisanship at this point. As tough as it is, just for a short moment put aside things like the healthcare debate--Republicans will continue to threaten the ACA so long as they have a majority in Congress and an ally in the White House.
This goes beyond even that. This goes to bare bones matters of basic qualifications for office. It goes to matters of mental fitness for duty. We shouldn't be having that conversation about any President--Democrat, Republican, whatever. George W. Bush was lazy, unmotivated and not particularly bright, but it was never at this extreme crisis level. Not even then.
Yesterday truly brought it all home. The President of the United States goes to what should have been--and has always been--a light hearted, ceremonial photo-op: a Boy Scout jamboree. Something where you'd expect him to say a few clichéd words about the youth being the future of the country, reach for your dreams, you can do anything, yada yada yada. Standard fluff. Instead, this Madman who calls himself our President launches into a vitriolic attack yet again against political opponents and the media, goes off on wildly inappropriate tangents insinuating sexcapades on yachts, going on about his political victory. In front of Boy Scouts. Boy Scouts.
He's a lunatic. The President of the United States is a lunatic. And that is one hell of a problem that we cannot ignore.
And while we look to November 2018 as being the light at the end of the tunnel, there's just no telling what could happen that could close that tunnel shut. We have that bullshit "voter fraud" commission entirely in the hands of Trump. And if there is any sort of major crisis or terrorist attack that arises in the interim, God help us.
I'll never forget the feeling waking up on the morning of November 9, 2016 and a sense of extreme anxiety washing over me--there was a sense that this country could be headed towards a very dark place if left unchecked. It was a feeling of vulnerability that I had never, ever felt before as an American citizen. It left me--for the first time in my life--quite literally shaking.
As we stand now, we are still a Democracy, but we are a Democracy under extreme stress. I don't know what the breaking point is. I hope we will never see that breaking point, but that's going to require people to stand up and do the right thing. People who we normally wouldn't agree with. People who we probably won't agree with even after this trial of conscience is over.
In short, what needs to happen might seem like a miracle, but then a miracle is what we'll need. There needs to be just enough individuals who will place loyalty to country over party politics, even if just for this one limited and extreme and unprecedented circumstance.
This horror show needs to end, and it needs to end as soon as possible.
The horror, of it all! This loon was ‘literally shaking’ because Trump won. But, it appears, Trump’s speech to the Boy Scouts unhinged him to the point that he is wanting a ‘miracle’ to save him. Poor fellow, he was so distraught he failed to remember we are a Republic and not a Democracy. But, I guess we will have to forgive him because of this “truly unprecedented situation” where Donald Trump is his President.
He isn’t alone in his misery. Many of the members of the site chimed in on ‘the evil’ :

It's all on the voters. The GOP is unspeakably evil. And these days, they're quite open about.
Yet they keep getting elected. The roots of our problem go very deep.
Yes, we need to get rid of the current crop of devils ASAP, but we'll keep getting more like them unless and until the festering disease within our population is cured.
Well, there you have it. Conservatism is a ‘festering diseases’ and evil. Why? Because the lunatics who mingle at the democraticunderground are fearful, shaking, and not sleeping because of President Trump.

That is it. He is not partisan. He is just evil. Being partisan is only a small window into his evilness.
The deplorableness of Hillary’s deplorable comment did not register with at least one DU member:

I hope not. But the right wing hate machine is positioning the bearded, toothless, inbred, uneducated and ignorant for civil war. Unfortunately due to the NRA, they are all very, very heavily armed.
So, if an ignorant, quasi-literate, racist asshole shoots you, are you still shot?
In the meantime, most of us don't even own guns.
Some, like this DU resident want President Trump and his ‘trashy family’ to self-destruct:
Paladin (16,517 posts)
My sentiments exactly. I want trump to self-destruct, and damned soon. Looking forward to him and his trashy family vacating D.C. just as soon as possible.
Mr. Paladin, did you ever contrast Mrs. Trump and Mrs. Obama?
Here is Michelle Obama.
And, here is Melania Trump. Paladin must have a different definition of ‘trash’ than conservative people.
A solution is finally found: Voodoo Dolls?

If enough people get Trump VooDoo dolls, we can turn the tide!
