• Lori experienced the results of an election, and its effect. On her, and on a real person in her town. She will remember it. Perhaps she will become a better person. Talk alone won't do that for somebody, over a certain age.

    • It comes down to a question of what we actually mean by "Trump supporter." Is Trump supporter synonymous with Trump voter? I don't think so. There are republicans that support abortion rights. There are...

    • Living in the Caribbean I took a couple of  US visitors to lunch. Nice restaurant but busy . Service was slow.

    • Danny, when you say Trump supporters aren't inherently bad, I have to disagree. The country has seen these people before.When lynching was common, people like the Trump supporters were silent. During the Jim Crow era, and during the Montgomery bus boycott, they were silent. Trump supporters do...

    • Even GW thinks Trump immigration policy is insane. He also says that a free press is important to democracy. GW noted that it is hard to tell other countries to have a free press if we obtain to it in the United States. GW said he tried with other leaders to get Putin to accept a free press....

    • Peter never provides a link. That enables him to slander Muhammad Ali Jr. All Peter has to do is say that he read that Muhammad Ali Jr. is a drug dealer. He gets to make the slanderous charge and we have go digging to find the information that shows the holes in the assertion. This is the way...

    • Typical wingnut doublespeak. You continue to lie. The Frenchmen was allowed into the country. The agents did not understand the law until the lawyers corrected the. Your powers of comprehension are missing in action.The head of the center at Texas A&M says the scholar was "mistakenly...

    • The black, the old lady book writer and the intellectual academic 'got what was coming to them from Trump's minions' who were 'following orders'.  You are a one man lynch mob, and it has nothing to do with your ancestry.

    • "May not apply, try staying up to date on subjects" - you ass, you don't know what you're talking about and we're supposed to go run around correcting your mistakes? You throw around so much speculative, pejorative bullshit with no thought to ever finding a fucking reference to back up your...

    • This snippy [racist term deleted] was violating immigration law but received special treatment when he was allowed into the country. This is just a reminder that even important [insulting term for Europeans deleted] have to follow the rules when entering the US.

    • Liar. The article notes that the agents were unaware of the law. Provide documentation that your assertion is correct. They let the Professor enter after lawyers intervened. Try to keep up.

      Edit to add:

      Interesting twist, the French scholar was born in Egypt. He underwent a body...

    • If he feels free to call French people Frogs, we can imagine the names he has for blacks, Latinos, etc. This is your Trump supporter.

      Edit to add:

      Peter never supplies links to support his claims because Peter can't read..

    • So the white trash President and his supporters are proud to block a French scholar who has traveled to the United States for 30 years from entering the country. Universities now have rapid-response lawyers teams to deal with policies of the ignorant orange idiot in the White House. Stupid...
