Don't lose sight of important @Fahrenthold scoop amid Syria, Cohen and Facebook deluge:

Trump Org lawyers wrote Panama's president, asking him to intervene in fight over POTUS's Trump International Hotel there — and warned of “repercussions” if he didn't

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/warning-of-repercussions-trump-company-lawyers-seek-panama-presidents-help/2018/04/09/9e3fbb8e-3c2f-11e8-8d53-eba0ed2371cc_story.html?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.3cd58496690a

Throw it on the pile with the rest.

We had a peaceful revolution in November 2016. The majority of the states in the republic ceded power to Donald Trump.  

 

Sorry you missed it. 

If that revolution included giving him the authority to violate laws at will, I did, and I will happily join in the next revolution to overthrow that authority. 

Hope you don't miss that one.

If my President asks me to defend our country and legally elected administration against those that wish to circumvent the constitution and violate the rule of law, I will.

Yeah, Trump shows it by being pro-Russia.

My bad.  It’s burning flags, sitting during the anthem, throwing rocks at police, making fun of the President, tearing down 100 year old statues, defacing hotels, wearing pink hats, and calling anyone that disagrees with you a racist, homophobe, misogynist Nazi that makes you patriotic.  

Well...yeah.

Trump was having a quiet day, the markets responded well, this thread was missing. Then the raid came down. They could have at least waited until the markets closed (lol).

I could see the market doing an up 1000+ day if he resigns.

The cool thing about facts is that they remain facts, regardless of your opinion.

65 million people voted for Hillary on election day.

Do you really believe that 65 million people have protested in the streets or participated in political rallies since the beginning of 2016?

depends what’s considered a “political rally”.  I’m in the conservative Austin suburbs and the number of people who are politically active has increase quite a bit since Trump’s election.  Probably 5x.  If going to meet candidates and/or joining advocacy groups counts, it’s probably higher than you think.

having said that, 1 in 5 does seem high.

Is the President asking me to defend the country against him?  Wouldn't it be easier for him to resign?

I know people, they work three jobs and they live next to somebody who doesn't work at all," Trump complained. "And the person who's not working at all and has no intention of working at all is making more money and doing better than the person that's working his and her a** off."

Political rallies would include every event during the 2016 election all 57 Republican candidates and Bernie Sanders, who drew huge crowds everywhere he went.

Also, I'm fairly confident they exclude children from their 1/5th number, so you can move that number down to around 50 million.

April Ryan asked the question in the presser today: Will the president resign?

Sarah Huck responded with disgust & derision, but it’s a serious question. Mayors and parish/county presidents with scandal and investigation that swirl around them commonly do resign because they can’t do the job. Trump is clearly distracted in his job, I think we’ll start hearing this more.

Heil Trump!

(perceived hyperbole aside, realize how close that sarcastic comment is to historically proven realities. Please rise above that.

Legally elected by less votes than his opponent and more importantly disregarding just about all norms, mores and respect for law and the Constitution is not someone worthy of following. Unless, well, you believe in what Trump has shown is he believes. Which brings us right back to the disturbing reality that Heil Trump, in a world where folks say "just follow the legally elected President even if what he states and stands for is against all that American stands for (not to mention humanity) is sadly too true to merely be an off coloured joke or insult without basis in reality.

This is a great video - even though the lady seems naive (maybe stupid) I feel like they were talking past each other.  She’s focusing on all the people that she talked to and meet with and how she knows they aren’t Russians - and the people she met with probably were all Americans who supported  Trump.  But it’s obvious she’s confused or is too stubborn/proud to admit that maybe she was duped.

I think the takeaway or focus from that is a lesson for all of us and one that we need to teach older folks and our kids - you have to question or vet things on the internet closely.  Just because somebody may agree (or appear to agree) with your political/religious/ethical views doesn’t mean they are your friend or wants what is best for you.

Trump tweets....

 

“Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia,  because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”

What I mean is there were well organized and well funded protests against our constitutionally elected administration since before he was inaugurated.  There was a continuous effort to discredit or overturn the election.  A lot of people see that, resent it and will remember.

In the last hour, President Trump has threatened war against Russia with regard to Syria, and then turned right around and argued for a new spirit of peace with Russia, including “ending the arms race”, whatever that means. 

Trump appears to be floundering here; he has never seemed more unprepared for the Predidency as he is in this situation. But that being said, I have no idea what he should be doing.

Thanks for the nice Nazi reference. 

With all due respect,I remember your rant against our President elect and our fellow Americans the morning after the election. Therefore, I don’t expect any objectivity from you on this Presidency or anyone that supports the President.
