Here is something else that bothers me. Unless I'm misunderstanding something, Trump is trying to get Congress to approve funding for his sacred wall - you know, the one that's going to keep out all the illegal aliens.

What happened to, "Mexico will pay for it." ?

Perhaps he’s lobbying the Mexican Congress!

Watching him wriggle out of all his promises and the massive lies he tries to get his faithful to believe is like a new and pathetic sideshow! 2,000 tracked so far - and counting!!

As long as the stock market keeps soaring and Mueller is kept at arms length, he’s probably safe. When the crash eventually comes and Mueller has cracked his Russian financial shenanigans, the Teflon coating and those fake Emperor’s clothes he’s wearing will likely slither away.

I hope you're right no matter what the causes, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Once again I ask one of my favorite questions: How would you like to be a future history teacher trying to explain the Trump presidency?

Here we are, living through it, and I'll be damned if I can explain it. I can't make sense out of any of it.

The new spin is Mexico will eventually pay for it indirectly by Trump renegotiating NAFTA.

Politicians told so many lies over so many years that the US public turned against them and voted for a guy who said he'd "drain the swamp".

And replaced it with a much worse swamp . . .

Lest we forget the real reason Dump is in the White House is because Hilary was a miserable candidate ( not the first time) . She won by 3 million votes but lost because of 70,000 votes in 3 states that she should have won easily if she had a message or actually campaigned there . If Dump had run against Biden , Biden would have demolished him.

Unfortunately true. The assumption that some states were in her pocket, negating a necessity to bother vigorously campaigning there, along with the assumption that people were not going to vote for a pe4rson like Trump, turned out to be dead wrong.

I just hope the Democrats learn their lesson by the next election and manage to come up with a good, strong, popular candidate.

Only 2 years, 9 months, and 5 days to go until the next presidential election . . .

If there was another election tomorrow, I'm not convinced trump would lose.

If the Republicans do nothing to protect the integrity of our election system you could be right. Let's face it, Clinton was a flawed candidate, but Russian meddling elected Trump by dividing Sanders and Clinton Democrats and supporting rights wing causes. When Clinton clearly won the debates as reported by those who actually interviewed people (Fake News) and the Fox News reports the contrary on their online poll, then I knew something was amiss.
