I wonder if you're actually capable of articulating support for Trump without hiding behind 4chanisms...

Frankly, if Trump wants to rebuild the country's infrastructure and fund NASA missions to mars and europa just so the republican party can take credit for it, I'm all for something actually being accomplished. Pence is a fucking ghoul though, he needs to sit that guy in the corner and ignore him.

I'm sorry, I'm just trying to find positive aspects of an administration I anticipate largely disagreeing with, and infrastructure spending and manned space exploration are two of Trump's stated policy goals. I don't have the luxury of finding this funny

Hey, if you're lucky, he'll put Newt Gingrich on the case to build him that moon base, so we can plant a big flag reading TRUMPLAND™ up there.

There's talk Gingrich might be his Secretary of State, so y'know.

He came out strongly (with Sanders as well) against the AT&T/Time Warner merger. That's a layup if they actually finish that shitshow off.
