    1. No, certainly not worse, but not improving at the same rate it was over the last 7 years .

    2. I don't hate Trump. I think he is a narcissistic moron who has no business as president, but I don't hate him.

    3. Not going to happen. Impeachment is on the table, but that is far more political than legal in nature.

    4. Only legal means, not all.

    5. While there is no crime called collusion, collusion describes a conspiracy to commit a crime. That is a crime. There is also no crime called "robbing a bank", but bank robbery is a crime.

    6. Hillary won the popular vote, however in the US it is the electoral college vote that matters. Trump won the EC vote.

    8. Trump is a natural born US citizen with German and Scottish roots.

    9. The Russians had an effect on the election. I doubt that the Russian influence alone was enough to sway the election,. but no doubt it helped.

    11. See 10.
