From taking America out of the Paris Climate Agreement to his offensive tweets following the ISIS bombings in London, Donald Trump has had a terrible few days that have resulted in a massive drop in his Gallup approval ratings, even for him. With James Comey set to testify this week, The Megg answers some of your questions and attempts to get inside the thinking of the Trump Administration.
Trump fired the Director of the FBI because he was investigating him and his campaign. That's like a restaurant firing the health inspector or a baseball player saying he's going to call his own balls and strikes. This isn't just terrifying, and it isn't just illegal; it's the clearest indication yet that when it comes to colluding with Russia, Trump is most likely guilty as all hell.
So when is a Republican going to lead the charge against him?
Spicer, by proving he doesn't know the basic facts of The Holocaust, has shown he doesn't know things. He's dumb. He's a dumb fucking person. And the POTUS, be it Trump or Obama or anyone named Bush or Clinton, shouldn't be represented by a dumb person.
Despite President Trump currently being under investigation by the FBI for Russia links, and despite Neil Gorsuch failing to get the required 60 votes of support, Senator Mitch McConnell -- who has in the past used funding for 9/11 first-responders as a political weapon to get what he wanted -- is looking to manipulate the rules of the Senate to get what he wants.
A New York Times report revealed FOX News has spent $13 million in settlements following sexual harassment claims against Bill O'Reilly. Clearly, this man can not be trusted in a position of power, managing women. So why do many Americans (and Fox News executives) still trust him to deliver the news?
The Wall Street Journal reports that Michael Flynn is offering to flip in order to keep himself out of prison. Here's what outsiders can safely assume based off of this report, as it relates to Donald Trump, Sergey Kislyak, and the Russian ties investigation.
There have been zero significant accomplishments in the first 100 days of the Trump Administration, despite a Republican majority in both the House and the Senate. Now, Donald Trump is admitting he thought being President would be a lot easier, despite spending 1/3 of his time golfing or on Trump-owned properties. Just a few months in, a majority of American's are asking; when the hell are midterm elections?
The Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz, who famously said poor people should have to choose between getting an iPhone or getting health insurance, has announced that he will not seek re-election in 2018. Consider that a win for all American's hoping the politicians that represent them are actually in touch with reality.
A video of Donald Trump during the White House Easter event shows POTUS taking a hat from a kid, signing it, then tossing it into a crowd. What kind of a person signs a kids hat and doesn't realize the kid will want the hat back? And is it fair to question Trump's mental ability based off of one odd video of him bullying a child?
If the Trump Team really didn't collude with Russia during the 2016 election, then why do Trump team members keep lying about speaking with Russian officials? Why are Republican lawmakers like Devin Nunes getting in the way of the investigation? And why won't Trump himself call for more clear and obvious transparency?
Comey acknowledged on Monday that the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russia had been going on since "late July." And yet, the American voters are just hearing about it now, while Comey felt it was vital the American voters be aware of the re-opening of an email server investigation case on Hillary just a week before the election.
No matter who you voted for, Hillary or Trump, it has become obvious that FBI Director Comey either intentionally used his position to influence the 2016 election, or he's completely unaware of the power of his office.
If the current POTUS refuses to adjust his Presidential business model, it seems safe to assume his approval ratings, already historically low, are going to continue to plummet. Trump either needs to change his policies, or change his pitch... or the American people are going to begin clamoring for a change in President.
