Donald Trump has shown that he doesn’t just ignore the law; he doesn’t know the law.  He didn’t pass high school.  He doesn’t understand what or who or where or what coloring book colors the United States Constitution is, so he tries to splatter paint everywhere and doesn’t care if it falls within those Constitutional lines.

We need 15,000 troops at the border to secure against 5,000 migrants that are 1,000 miles away like we need a trillion dollar spending bill to solve a million dollar problem we may not have in 2025.  Unfortunately that is not how Trump does the calculus.  To him it is simple: Send troops to the border; talk about troops on the border; talk about the caravan.  Make up stories about Middle-Eastern men and ebola; get Fox to repeat it; maybe nobody will notice we just put a rapist on the Supreme Court and we have racists (one letter off from rapists) in the streets echoing Trump and mailing IEDs and shooting up synagogues and grocery stores.

Yes, I don’t know who the greatest United States President ever was.  I can tell you who the worst is.  For not knowing government, for not listening to those who seek to use the Presidency to do good, for not healing this country, for all the bought-by-the-devil things this evil man is doing, he is and always shall be the Count Iblis.


P.S. Dylan Smith, congratulations on your outstanding performance in last night’s UofA basketball game!  [even if only by namesake ;)]

Funny.  We can send our troops to defend the borders of other countries around the world, ut not our own….

Sounds like you’re an expert on govt spending, but no details on what you would do with this foreign invasion…

What I would do with this foreign invasion?

1. Send them all back from where they came from.  All 15,000 of them.

2. Send the commander in chief a bill for misusing public funds to make them come here just because of his private agenda.

3. Demote him to The Apprentice In Chief.


Sorry, we missed your input...

TucsonSentinel.com is an Arizona nonprofit organization. Your contribution is tax-deductible.

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.


Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
