Had she done or said the same things Mr Trump has done or said I would excoriate her and bring the tar. Your partisan tolerance is disconcerting.

If I ignored your rebuttal it is because I didn't see it. Your conclusion that I don't think Pres. Trump has done anything controversial is wrong. There are plenty of things Sec. of State Clinton did that was controversial. The Clinton Foundation tops the list of the controversial things she has done. Despite that you probably voted for her. (I don't if you did but it is a safe guess that you did.) Since I wasn't on the CHBRR I don't know if excoriated her it.

You are objective? Like I said you're liberal bias prevents you from being objective.

I did not say Trump has received praise from a liberal. What I said was that he should receive some from liberals. No one is always in the wrong but liberals can only see what Trump does wrong and ignore it when he does something right. Here is praise for Trump from a liberal. https://freebeacon.com/politics/teamsters-president-praises-trump-hes-off-good-start/

When any of our elected officials do something that deserves praise I will give them the praise they are due.

When did do that? The claim of Russian collusion was debunked by The Mueller Report. Only delusional partisans bring the lie of Russian collusion by Trump and his campaign. That you do shows that you are not as objective as you think you are.

My comment was about how you rporter314 injected race into this discussion. You did it by referring to Pres. Obama as a "black president."

Trump apologized for doing that. An objective person would have accepted his apology and forgotten about it. You didn't. Again you show that you are not as objective as you think you are.
The difference was the spike in unemployment rates during the Obama administration that started to decline in 2010.
OK ... and ...what?

Pres. Obama deserves praise for the start of the decline in the unemployment rates in the last two years of his administration.
I guess you haven't seen the stats. It started in 2010 with big government economic packages aimed at turning a severely contracted economy around. The unemployment rates started declining in 2010 as a direct result of those economic policies enacted, and they continued to decline throughout the next 7 years of the Obama administration.

You can say you don't like the way it was done but you can't say it didn't work. Of course I can ask what policies would you have enacted to achieve the same of better results. At the time conservatives said do nothing. Maybe you had a different prescription.

That Trump has continued what started during the Obama administration is a good thing.
Again, I guess you have not seen the stats.

Job Gains :: Mr Trump has not bested the jobs gains under Pres Obama

Unemployment Rate :: it has fallen 1% since Mr Trump took office. It has been falling since 2010.

Growth :: Looks about the same as Pres Obama's stats for last few years or nothing to write home about.

Middle Class income :: higher but it was already rising the last few years of Obama's term. Should be expected as more people are working.

Stock Market :: Under Pres Obama DJIA up 46% at same time as Mr Trump's 25%. A bit misleading as Mr Trump is reaping the benefits of Pres Obamas bootstrap of the market.

and so forth. For all the bluster from Mr Trump he has not done much of anything except not blow it up. Now that could be BIG, as he is the chaos in chief and he is in the start of a trade war which every rational economist says will not end well for America and maybe the world. So while Mr Trump hasn't blown it up yet .... give him some time, he is working on it

So again .... what has Mr trump done or said which deserves my praise???
