It appears you don't know the definition of the word "landslide". He actually lost the popular vote, it only looks like a landslide due to the way the Electoral College votes are allocated in most states (i.e. winner take all).

Oh dear God another "popular vote" apologist! The rules have been posted for over 200 years. You Leftists are like girls who lose and then want to change the rules of the game so you've actually won.

Never before has the media completely coalesced behind one candidate to sing her praises while spending the rest of their time vilifying her opponent and attacking any of his supporters with serious brown shirt action!
The elitists pulled out ALL the stops . . . and it just WASN'T ENOUGH!

Where did I say anything disparaging about the Electoral College? I was just pointing out that Trump didn't win by a landslide as it was a very close election and that RealEstateIsBetterThanStocks was an idiot for say Trump won by a landslide. You should try commenting on what someone has actually written.

Can you tell the difference between the colors of red and blue??

Well you are a fucking dumb ass! Geography doesn't vote, voters do. All this map shows it a bunch of fucking idiots who live in the middle of fucking no where and are out numbered by livestock voted for trump. The blue areas, where civilization exists, are much more densely populated and so this map is just a map of cities versus country. More people voted blue than red you moron.

You could safely say....Trump won against all odds. The Republican Elite's opposed him. The press opposed him. Most of the world opposed him. Hispanics opposed him. Blacks opposed him. He had nothing going for him, yet he won. Wow, that is an achievement that goes beyond a landslide victory.

ah, there it is. nobody matters but the coastal "educated" voters. it's not like making a living off the land is brutally hard or anything. yep, much harder to go into an office all day and get everything you ever could think of under the sun delivered to your door same day. that's a hard knock life, for sure.

The Republication party doesn't give a rat's ass about anyone who isn't in the top 1% and the Democrats aren't that much better but at least do promote social programs to help the other 99%. These morons in the flyover states keep voting for people that despise them and actually cut programs that could actually help them.

You guys are the idiots, not even as smart as dumb chimps. Trump didn't win by an landslide, it only appears so because the way the Electoral College votes are counted. He won, but it was a close contest.

Prove it asshole, it mostly business taxes that pay for it. Most businesses are public meaning they are "owned" by the stockholders not some 1% asswipe.

Only $300 million, 10% of the total federal revenue came from corporate tax. Most of it came from individuals paying federal income tax.

Not a democrat, I'm a progressive. Now that Republicans are regressives means I'm closer to being a Democrat is true but that's a positive thing if you are into reality. You on the other hand are a complete moron if you think the 1% pay for anything. Ask Donald how much tax he's paid recently.

even if your chimp IQ magically doubled, you wouldn't be able to comprehend strategic, cost-effective campaigns in key states let alone why the forefathers made it that way in the first place.

And he had the single most attended and hyped inauguration of all time! Followed by the single least effective presidency of all time. He's literally an eight year place holder. Nothing he did will last. And that's because everything he did was partisan and wrong for the country.

You could also say Obama has been very good for ISIS. Just ask the Yazidi girls who were enslaved, tortured and raped.

Yes, but that has to be looked at in a larger frame that includes what we did in Iraq the six years before Obama came to office.

I saw that comment coming. Almost added it for you.

Not according to the Chimp that is our President now. He keeps on thinking that he won the popular vote too. And BTW, some of his ardent supporters are getting convinced. It is a cult now.

It was the ninth biggest electoral college victory of the last 11 Presidential elections. So, it's in roughly the 20th percentile of landslides. Wow.
