The Republican leadership will eventually decide that Trump is too toxic to their ambitions. But before jettisoning the Trumpster, they will want to be certain that Pence is both malleable and able to rein in his somewhat extremist views to avoid a repeat performance of this White House circus.
Donald Trump has said time and time again that anyone who attacks him will be hit back ten times harder. We're seeing that currently with the war of words against North Korea. And yet, when it comes to Vladimir Putin and Russia, Trump seems to go out-of-his-way to kiss some ass. Trump showed incredibly weak leadership this week when he thanked Putin for expelling U.S. diplomats, leaving American's to wonder, again; what do the Russians have on Donald Trump?
Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona has taken his party to task in his recent book, saying the GOP's rationalization of Donald Trump is hurting the American people. Most notably, Flake acknowledges the rise of Trump was a direct result of the way the GOP treated Barack Obama... and he's asking his own party to get back to the basics of conservative politics.
Just once, I'd like to see Donald trump make a decision that wasn't seemingly based in hate. His decision to ban transgender troops only serves to make our military weaker, and his decision to leave the Paris Climate Accord only serves to make America weaker on the international stage (not to mention, hurts our planet). At a certain point (and that point may be long past), Trump's supporters need to ask themselves; what kind of people are we?
This is a shitty look for Trump, who continues to spew nonsense about 'moving on' from the Russian hacking of our election, and continually tries to act like a small child with crumbs on his chin denying he ate the last cookie.
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?
The current theory is that Jared Kushner was the one who leaked information on Donald Trump Jr. setting up a meeting with Russian officials to get damaging information on Hillary Clinton. Kushner seems like the only one who was prepared to deal with these events becoming public, and it seems fair to wonder if he's throwing Paul Manafort and Trump Jr. under the bus to save his own skin.
Despite controlling both houses of Congress and the White House, the GOP has been unable to pass a single major piece of legislation -- including, most notably, a Repeal-and-Replace for ObamaCare. Six months in, the Republican Party has proven they are not up to the task of governing. The Republican Party is proving they are not up to the task of doing their jobs. Eventually, it will be time to find someone else who can.
The son of the President, who acted as a surrogate on his campaign, was well aware a foreign country was trying to influence our election. He not only did nothing to stop it, he embraced it. Here’s why that sort of thing is highly illegal and should immediately be punished.
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?
