First of all, to Four More Years Baby, so Democrats are crybabies? What do you call Trump shutting down the government every time he doesn’t get his own way? To Info Depot, you always agree with Lady Di because you’re also a Trump lover who believes every lie he tells you. And to Sanatoga Sam, Donnie boy does a good job of his own disrespecting the office of the president; he doesn’t need anyone’s help.
Trump’s election wasn’t about Trump. It was a middle finger in the face of America’s ruling class. It was a gesture of contempt, a howl of rage, the end result of decades of selfish and unwise decisions made by selfish and unwise leaders. Happy countries don’t elect Donald Trump president, desperate ones do.
I see the meeting they had the other day President Trump with the Democratic
leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, after it was over after Pelosi said no money for the wall good old Chuckie Schumer came out and told a different story about how it ended. He said the president had a temper tantrum and walked out of the meeting. And now we’re finding out that it didn’t happen. Who are the liars now Democrats? —JT
To say Trump is throwing a tantrum when they appeared to be doing the same is a laugh. Trump just wants to get stuff done that our politicians have all agreed on and allotted in the past. To deliberately work against him shows him how much they could care less about us Americans. This man spent his holidays in D.C. while the swamp did their own thing. How pitiful. —Lady Di
In 1836, 200 Texans defended the Alamo for 13 days against Mexican forces numbering in the thousands because of what? A wall. —Jim Fitch
President Trump is the worst president we ever had. He’s doing TV everyday. He just loves his job. Trump doesn’t know what he’s doing. He has the country all messed up. We have to get rid of him, impeach him, somehow he has to go. This country is in bad shape because of Donald Trump. His ego is so high. He should never have been president. He’s not presidential calling people names, having all these girlfriends.
This is to the One Who Knows. You actually don’t know anything. You said that all illegal criminals have been stopped at the border by the agents for the year of 2018. Then how do you explain MS13, the gangs in this country from Guatemala and Honduras gaining members as they are in this country? So you don’t know what you’re talking about One Who Knows.
I was reading Tom Hylton’s commentary in Thursday’s Mercury with his remarks about the bike lanes. He says we are a car-oriented county but things are changing. He also said Pottstown is helping to lead the way. He failed to say you never see anyone using the bike lanes, nice days or not. Just another waste of money.
I see Donnie rejected the Democrats offer, so that now makes it a Trump shutdown. Ridiculous. —One Who Wonders Where This Is Going Next
The picture in Thursday’s Mercury of Rep. Marcy Toepel re-elected to the House leadership post and her husband is a very nice picture and a nice write-up. She’s a good person.
I have a good idea concerning taking care of the border. Maybe we ought to build Pelosi and Schumer houses right on the border and maybe things can get taken care of. —Jay P.
Mexico just found 20 dead bodies near the border and 17 of them were burned. This is constantly going on along with everything else. It is torture. It is murder. Donald Trump when he speaks of them he speaks very politely. We need that wall. We need to send most of them back, we don’t need them over here.
I would hope to think that if our nation was in a true national emergency our chosen leader would react ASAP to keep us safe. However, our chosen so-called leader has been waiting weeks to respond to a so-called emergency which proves there is no emergency at all and there is no true leader running our government.
This is for West Pottsgrove. I agree with whoever called in about the pool. It was a white elephant that the commissioners got on their own without the township residents being involved. Also the bridge at Sell Road and Manatawny Street in the park how much money did they pay to have it look rustic? Mother Nature would’ve taken care of that by herself.
