It's all about money. There are campaign rules in place where when you are running for election (2020) you can mark a lot of stuff as campaign events, rallies and commercials - so you can write off a lot of the costs and do fundraising and stuff. That's one reason why he filed for re-election the day after this inauguration. His companies are still making tons of money off his own "re-election campaign" since his campaign events need to use businesses to get their needs met... wonder which businesses they'll use?
Obama did tour the country for like a year or more after getting elected, but almost every single event was about the Affordable Care Act because he was pushing to get public support for it. You know, that whole "passing legislation" thing that some Presidents try to do.
I am not confident that he ever will. The other day was a really good example of why. When he came out and didn't denounce the Nazis, they were all happy. The next day he came out and shit talked them, they just said "Oh, Trump HAD to say that, he was getting pressure, he doesn't mean it." They do this same thing for everything - anything bad is because he's doing the whole "wrecking of the establishment" that they want, and anything they perceive as good is good. Nixon resigned in disgrace and even shortly before then he had upper 20s approval rating. Trump's supporters do not have any values they hold dear, so if he does something "bad", they don't care, because Trump did it. If Bernie Sanders came out and took 1million from Wallstreet and said "You know, I don't want single payer anymore" he wouldn't be my political hero. Trump supporters do not care about anything else other than Trump pissing off liberals. If he does that, it's a win. I really, really hope I'm proven wrong.
I am a very staunch critic of religion and Pence is about as right wing of a fundamentalist "we should electrocute gay teenagers back to being straight" type of nutjob that I'm scared of. Although plenty of good has come and can come from religion, he is the direct representation of everything that I hate about religion. That said, I would welcome him with open arms compared to Trump. In my view, Pence can get all of the legislative, Christian fundamentalist shit I don't like right now, through Jeff Sessions and Betsy DeVos and pushing Trump to do what he wants. I just want our President to stop being a national embarrassment - other countries think we're a joke. I want "Fake News" to go away. I want the symbol of America to actually be someone who can hold attention for more than 3 minutes at a time. The list goes on and on - but for an agnostic atheist guy like me, I dream of Pence!
My heart hurts every day. I don't know if it'll be early through impeachment or resignation, loss of 2020 election or at the end of his 8th year, but the day that this man is no longer my President will be one of the best days of my life.

The thing of it is that he's better than a lot of team's STARTERS. You can't tell me a team like the Jets can't use him. He's absolutely getting blackballed and it's total bullshit that he is, but on the other hand I'm with you, so sick of hearing about it.
Let it be a lesson for a NFL players. You can beat your wife, be involved in a murder investigation, be a racist shit, fight dogs, just never stand up for minorities and disrespect 'Merica.
I started tearing up listening to "One More Light" (song) yesterday while getting ready for work. So freaking eerie listening to some of these lyrics and not knowing what was going on his mind in the recent past. I've also had a bit of a rough time listening to any music that isn't energetic and happy over the last two days as it makes me think of him.
Do any of you remember the time before Linkin Park blew up (before In The End was a single)? Like, I do... They would play ads on MTV promoting Hybrid Theory (like Drowning Pool did during WWE). I got that shit as soon as I heard "Crawling." I've probably spent over a thousand hours listening to Linkin Park since I was a teen, no joke.
