Understanding Trump’s campaign violations

I recently learned that the Obama 2008 campaign was fined $375,000. If you’ve been under a rock recently, Trump is an un-indicted co-conspirator for making illegal payments to keep Stormy Daniels quiet, a violation of campaign finance laws. So this morning, I’m trying to understand why Obama was only fined but Trump is being accused […]

Re: Trump administration orders closure of PLO office in Washington

The closure was announced by the State Department shortly before White House national security adviser John Bolton, in his first major policy speech, threatened U.S. punishment for individuals and countries that cooperate with the International Criminal Court, where the Palestinians have lodged complaints against Israel. “The United States supports a direct and robust peace process,” […]

Re: Rudy Giuliani accuses Robert Mueller of collusion

The former New York City mayor said Mueller’s investigation is “illegitimate” and questioned why the special counsel wasn’t delving into the dossier compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele that contained unsubstantiated but salacious details about Trump.“ Can it get any worse? I mean, what do we need to know that this is a […]

Re: Trump uses latest raucous rally to slam recent press coverage

Trump opened up with a chat they had after the Singapore Summit. “I go home, I see my wife. I say, ‘Honey, we’re gonna get the greatest [news coverage] — I just did something so great today.

As Trumpism takes hold, Republicans face increasing pressure to embrace policies they once opposed – The Washington Post

Trump signaled he plans to take a combative approach to the upcoming NATO summit, questioning the value of the alliance and warning Germany during a raucous political rally in Montana last week that “I don’t know how much protection we get by protecting you.” I’m not really surprised by anything anymore but it’s still pretty frustrating. […]

White House officials were shocked after a summary of a conversation was released without their knowledge. US officials reportedly had to rely on Trump’s memory of the call for details. Following the incident, US officials insisted Trump […]

It’s hot outside. Now does global warming exist?

In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 29, 2017 Now does […]

On this 4th, we’re as divided as ever

I’ve not been feeling celebratory on this Independence Day. Honestly, it’s been a while since I’ve really cared about the 4th. It’s mostly just been an exercise in frustration as we try to get ourselves close enough for a good viewing spot of the Nashville fireworks display. I’m not proud of our country. I’m not […]

Re: Supreme Court Upholds Trump’s Travel Ban 

WASHINGTON — President Trump acted lawfully in imposing limits on travel from several predominantly Muslim nations, the Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday. The vote was 5 to 4, with the court’s conservatives in the majority. Emphasis mine. Isn’t it really cool how a minority of our country – the people who elected POTUS45 – is […]

Trump trash talks restaurant that booted Sanders – ABC News

Trump, in a Monday morning tweet, said that The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia “should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders.” What? Trump does this all the time and reminds me of dudes […]
