I watched a highlight reel of the recent press conference and the things he said came right out of a parody movie.

Man, Trump has me actually seeing eye to eye with the likes of Shep Smith and John Roberts. Never thought I'd see THAT day.

Maybe Trump will become like the big space squid at the end of The Watchman. The one big grave threat to everyone who unites all of us against him.

Obviously in this hypothetical, it was all orchestrated by Hillary, making her Ozymandias.

Seriously, I think it's come to that. Trump's awfulness seriously is that common ground for normal, decent to people on both sides of the aisle to hopefully unite on.

I listen to Glenn Beck on my ride home from work daily now (I always like to listen to right-wing radio just to stay out of my comfort zone and see where the other side is coming from), but lately I find myself constantly nodding in agreement to much of what he says and the approach he's been trying to take (I mean the guy appeared on Samantha Bee and had her on his show...he's trying, at least). Plus it's always good to have conservative sources who are critical of Trump to cite when you find yourself in an argument with a Trump-supporting friend or relative, especially since it shuts down their usual "liberal media!" argument.

Beck and Megyn Kelly seemingly came to their senses even before the election was over. The problem with Fox is that they still have idiots like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity carrying Trump's water for him, and the masses nod along with them.

I propose the new name for Trump should be "orange, space squid from Watchmen".

Although on the plus side of this, personally I actually think that getting into heated, passionate debates about these movies and characters have sharpened my skills as a debater in general which comes in handy when getting into arguments about this more important stuff in real life, including with my mostly right-wing family. I don't dare touch politics on social media or random discussion threads elsewhere because it's just so futile and full of hatred and nobody listens to one another at all.

But yeah, I mean as corny as it sounds...I really feel like the only way any healing is ever going to come about is if it happens on the individual level. If enough "normal" people finally decide that enough is enough and stop letting the fringes pull us apart. The thing is when you break it all down, there should still be a ton of common ground for Americans to share with one another, we've just become increasingly blinded to it for all the reasons you've been talking about.
The only thing that will unite most people is to see the ugliness, dangers and counter-productivity of extremism.

Then we can collectively shout "STFU" when the next edge-lord rages against the status quo.

As long as uninformed and delusional voters live in swing states, it doesn't matter if the majority of the population know that he is bat crazy.

Maybe "leaned left" as compared to your standard FoxNews anchor, but I never thought of him as being progressive nor did I ever find much of what he said before agreeable.

Why are they so passionate about getting rid of undocumented workers? All evidence suggest they're good for the local economy.

Could it be the racist neo nazi agenda to keep whites the biggest majority possible?

If these undocumented workers were German, Canadian or British would Republicans care?

Why would they?
