    If Trump doesn't get impeached....

    would you settle for him getting impeared?

    Give some of you a moment to think about this one...

    I would not. I would, however, be fine with him being impineappled.

    You're right that staffing shakeups are commonplace. Trump, however, has been systematically removing protections, staff, website links and agencies related to the LGBTQ community in particular without putting anything or anyone in its place. He's done so all throughout 2017 with no replacements named in that calendar year and no talks or prospects of replacements in 2018. I get the truth in what you're saying, but it's a moot point. That's a severely cherry-picked perspective. As for the rhetoric about President Obama being a homophobe - he actually delivered for the LGBTQ in major ways, particularly trans Americans. No President in history has ever done anything close to what he accomplished. On the campaign trail, Trump lifted up a rainbow flag, because it had his name on it, and bragged that he'd be the greatest advocate for the LGBTQ. I haven't seen any positive thing yet, only negative things and removal of policies, protections and an attempt to boot transgender soldiers out of our military. He's not simply holding back his LGBTQ advocacy. He flat out lied and is behaving as a cancer toward us and America's other minorities. The proof is in the facts, not the op ed pieces or rhetoric.

    Posting the truth is not enough. It has to be WHOLE-TRUTHS instead of HALF- TRUTHS.

    You're absolutely right. There is this hollow gotcha-game that the Trump admin and many Trump supporters play. They find an instance of something, extract it, redefine it and turn it into a false equivalence. It's negligent at best, dishonest at worst and keeps happening over and over again until the public can't distinguish fact from fiction. Once that happens, busy workingclass Trump voters just shut down, dig their heels in and cling to these half truths and lies tighter. The fact is that Trump and his administration have built their support on stoking fear of minorities. We're all trying to steal Christmas and jobs and let undocumented immigrants across the boarder so that they can kill your favorite grandmother. The segment of Trump supporters who are more"level headed" have simply plugged their ears to all of this in order to get a tax breaks that will end up greatly harming the economy for everyone. It's time for us progressives to show up for this year's midterms in numbers like never before.
