    This is a riot.. I'd meant to share this earlier and forgot.

    While watching the inauguration with Mom today, my Aunt was at my Mom's.. now she's a major, major lefty.. Bernie Sanders supporter.. gimme gimme gimme as long as someone else has to pay for it.

    During one of the breaks they were showing Trump getting out of a vehicle and the Secret Service was .. well, being the Secret Service. She's convinced they know Trump is going to be assassinated because they were "constantly looking around, not standing still, staying close to him", etc. I was puzzled and told her that's what the Secret Service always does.. she insists with Obama they were "much more relaxed" because of his popularity and they knew nobody wanted to kill him.

    I honestly couldn't really think of a comeback and simply stared at her in disbelief that she could be that dense. Thankfully the speech was only 10min away and I got to hear her call Trump a racist homophobic misogynist, etc, etc.

    I'm not really one to ask loaded questions when I know the answer... had I been in my own home... absolutely. However, I was a guest at my Mom's, as was she... although I'm sure my Mom was equally incredulous.

    She may have had apoint but for the wrong reason, everybody knows Biden was obams insurance policy. Neither the left nor right wanted that idiot to be president.

    i wish i had lefty relatives so i could rub it in a little.
    the only liberal i really know is my sis in law, and she's not even allowed to set foot on my driveway.
    the wife doesnt play politics on facebook either so there's that.
    i saw a few meltdowns that probably rival DU.
    and those people are not allowed near the entrance of my cul de sac.

    It's funny how some have selective memory. When Obama was elected, the left was certain that racist whites were going to try to assasinate him.

    I'd bet a billion dollars the SS was on high alert then, as they are for every president.

    Actually she is kind of correct. The people that hate queen of the links are mostly conservatives and not as prone to violence. With all the leftists, and as crazy as they are, the Treat to Trump is much more profound.

    No one wanted to 'take one' for Obama, they were providing a 'clean shot' ;)

    Joe Biden's sole purpose as VP was insurance.

    If someone snuffed Nobama control immediately fell
    to Biden. NOBODY wanted THAT.

    All the Best,

    I think it would be pretty safe to say that BHO set a new standard in terms of the number of people wanting to kill a president. The fact that a particular person doesn't realize that just shows the lack of breadth in their perspective.

    The only perspective is the one they give you.

    Sure, if your own perspective isn't strong enough to rise above the chatter.

    Best of the pundit remarks I saw was that Bernie Sanders could have given most of Trumps inaugural address.

    Proving her wrong would have only proven her right on a new topic of her delusion.
