If Trump is somehow impeached, then the presidency goes to Pence. If Pence is impeached, it goes to Paul Ryan. If something happens to Ryan, it goes to Orrin Hatch. There's actually an entire line of succession and Hillary is not present. 
School me a bit sistren.
They're still desperate to get him out though it's so pathetic and funny to me :laugh:
Tbh I don't doubt the man has a bunch of skeletons in his closet that are bound to come out. He spent his entire life a billionaire millionaire. I'm sure he's been up to some shady shit.

The guy who predicted Trump will win the election and has been wrong only like 3 times ever said he thinks trump will be impeached :rip: so we'll see.

I'm sad for those who are on the way here that are going to get deported. I'm weary about those stuck in third countries trying to get here and how that situation is going to unfold going forward (a friend of mine's boyfriend literally crossed the border with Mexico a week ago, after my friend paid 10K for him - or he would have been killed by the narcos running the trafficking from Cuba), so I'm very much hoping that those stuck elsewhere are simply sent back to Cuba and don't end up dead in a ditch somewhere. 

On the actual political side of things, it's about time, and it wasn't something that was going to last forever, particularly in the current environment of this country with all the anti-immigration sentiment all over. Cubans were the only ones given that guarantee, out of every other country in the world. That breeds a lot of resentment and a lot of people thinking they're special snowflakes. We're now simply on par with every other country in the world. It was time.

wow. i love hearing actual accounts on situations like this (obviously I don't love the bad things occurring). 
and yeah, it's such a mixed bag. i understand both sides. honestly, i'm pro-immigration by all means and it hurts to think of people who will get the short end of the stick, but in this political climate it's probably for the best. maybe. i don't know.

Well, from that experience. 

He left Cuba in a boat with a group of 10 others, went to Mexico. Once there, my friend had to pay the 10K, or he would have been killed and thrown away. They really put it as simply as that. He told me the other day that while there, he went out of his room to go to the kitchen and he literally saw body parts being put into bags. He's been scarred for a bit. But yeah. It ain't easy.

Body parts? Yeesh!

He totally voted against his interests. Such ignorance, going from Bernie to Donald, just because of they were "outsiders".

I don't understand Trump-supporters view of Donald as an outsider. He's married to money-elite more than anyone, it's perplexing how they can claim he isn't.

I'm glad they're suffering. You wanna turn a blind eye to everything he did and said, because it doesn't directly affect you? Fine. Now everyone can ignore you when he does something that affects YOU.

Manning has been commuted by Obama. I wonder if Assange will come out of his cave and keep his word.

The people upset about voting for him and he's repealing the ACA are idiots. He stated very loudly and clearly that it would be the first thing he would do once in office. So their vote would have been an endorsement of that.

The other day I was reading that some of the Trump suporters didn't know that Obamacare And ACA are the same thing. I mean how is that even possible?

yes, seriously. it was a title given to the ACA based on negative connotations by the GOP. I've read thousands of headlines saying Obamacare instead of the ACA. Let's not pretend most Americans are genuinely smart enough to distinguish the two.

But we already know they are misguided and lack intelligence - why feed into it even more? The media is absolutely complicit to a certain degree just as they are for helping him get elected by sensationalizing him since the primaries.

Oh so now the media needs to educate the stupid? You're giving the media way too much credit, sis.
