During his Twitter attacks on the New York Times this weekend, Trump defended White House counsel Donald McGahn, suggesting he wasn't a "rat" like John Dean, who testified against Richard Nixon during Watergate.
This is your friendly reminder that ratting on Nixon was a good thing, that Nixon was a criminal, and that throwing shade at the guys that turned on him is throwing shade on the good guys.
Trump stripped the former CIA Director of his security clearance last week because he didn't like what the guy was saying about him. By removing an experienced operative from the situation, Trump has made all of America a little bit less safe.
Donald Trump and Mike Pence keep talking about "Space Force," a new branch of the U.S. armed services that would be prepared to fight in space. Except despite what you've seen in Avengers, there actually isn't anyone to fight in space. And yet ideas like Medicare for all, free pre-K and less expensive public college are all deemed "too expensive." How can the wealthiest nation in the world waste money on SPACE FORCE but not on getting everyone health insurance?
It's clear to anyone watching the Paul Manafort trial that the former Trump campaign manager is guilty as sin of a litany of financial crimes. He's the epitome of the Swamp Trump wore to drain. But here's my prediction, and it doesn't take much stretch of the imagination; Manafort won't go to prison, because Trump is going to pardon him.
This isn't suggesting that the use of the N-word by a 71-year-old white millionaire isn't offensive. The question being posed here is; would anyone who Trump hasn't previously offended SUDDENLY be offended if they now found out he used the N-word on the reg?
While vacationing at his private golf club in New Jersey, Trump took to Twitter to say he may not have enough time during the midterm elections to campaign for Republican candidates. He's vacationing there this entire week.
We're not even two years into the Trump Administration, an era filled with corruption, greed, ridiculous characters put in positions of power from Ivanka to Omarosa to Scaramucci to Spicer. Not to mention, a failure to appeal ObamaCare, an immigration policy that separates children from their parents, and thousands of Americans dead in Puerto Rico. Who's tired of this shit yet?
The GOP nearly lost another special election last night in a district that has been safely-Republican for a generation. Will this be enough to get the Republican lawmakers to finally abandon Trump, or will they stay on a ship that appears to be sinking?
