    I tend to avoid commenting on such discussions because I don't play well in the sandbox with those who have widely opposing opinions that I feel are not based upon factual information. I am not well equipped to enter into such repartee!

    I do believe that the portion of the population who insist on using a broad paintbrush to characterize Trump as all other politicians and Fox News as being like all other sources of the news are failing to recognize or are badly underestimating the lasting damage that is being done to our democratic form of government, the economic foundations of our country and to our international relationships that have to a great extent prevented a catastrophic war over our lifetime.

    Many times I wonder if it is not some form of coping mechanism to prop up their ego after supporting something so very clearly awful rather than just admitting to it they have to make up excuses for it in their own mind.

    OK. I watched it, out of curiosity and I'm very surprised you, as a self-proclaimed independent, were taken in. He basically shilled for the wall and did his best to distort the abortion issue...

    I completely understand why many people wanted a change to the status quo in Washington. The thinking for a number of election cycles has been to elect someone who was not a politician, who could bring a business approach to the WH in hopes of working together to get rid of gridlock and party politics. In theory I believe it had some merit, assuming the right person was elected. Well, we now see how that experiment worked out, not only has it not worked, but the person in the WH is a fraud, elected by fraudulent means, and is a crook. He is attempting to sell out our country for the benefit of himself and his family.

    Thanks for your post and for your willingness to watch the entire video, so you could make more informed comments.

    I never said I bought into everything O'Reilly said. In fact, the first post was just the video alone. Then after a couple responses I added this:

    It's commentary I found interesting. He makes some good points. YMMV....
    How is that (in your words) "taken in."?

    If this is your take on the entire video:
    He basically shilled for the wall and did his best to distort the abortion issue...
    I have no problem with that.

    But there was a LOT more on that video than those 2 items you mentioned!

    Again.....I only posted it because I thought it was interesting and pertained to the thread subject.

    Thanks again for the followup.
