    Congratulations to the Trump supporters on their border wall today. It may not pass in the Senate, but I’m impressed by your love of country.

    I’d suppose I’d be cool with the border wall funding, especially since Trump did take part in meaningful criminal-justice reform. I’d say it’s a tradeoff😉

    Ho Hum. Just another day at the office. Maybe tomorrow the orange sphincter will host a KKK rally.  Or golf with OJ. Or….

    So. Much. Winning. This had to be the last straw for Mattis after everything else.

      +CC Ekeke I wonder what he thinks about Flynn. In all the flurry, I have not seen nor heard a comment.

    Any other president would have been impeached for this egregious abuse of power, complete disregard for process let alone possible loss of human life. Ignoring the strong urging against these actions from just about everyone including members of his own party. t rump is out of control.. there is a reason checks and balances were embedded into the framework of the government, but as of right now the ones responsible for those checks… are checked out .. (GOP) .. The only ones happy about the president’s actions are the leader of a hostile foreign power.. and a few assorted nut jobs who have similarly flawed thinking as the wanna be emperor t rump … and this is just the tiny tip of the iceberg that America is heading toward full steam ahead ..

    Trump proves once again that loyalty is a one way street. General Mattis is the only honorable member of the administration. Trump’s pullout in Syria is just a way to distract from his looming legal exposure.

    I can no longer get shocked by this administration. I’ve reached my plateau – what can they possible do next to shock me?

    Thank you MSNBC for the more substantive upload. Given where we are in history, it really is a public service.

    What do these bad presidents’ first years tell us about Mr. Trump? Some performed reasonably well at first, only to slide into disaster later. Might Mr. Trump grow in the job, making us forget his rookie-season bumbling? Or should we expect more of the same through 2020?

    I expect the latter. Mr. Trump’s first year has been an unremitting parade of disgraces that have demeaned him as well as the dignity of his office, and he has shown that this is exactly how he believes he should govern.

    Most important, he is the first president to fail to defend the nation from an attack on our democracy by a hostile foreign power — and to resist the investigation of that attack. He is the first to enrich his private interests, and those of his family, directly and openly.

    He is the first president to denounce the press not simply as unfair but as “the enemy of the American people.” He is the first to threaten his defeated political opponent with imprisonment. He is the first to have denigrated friendly countries and allies as well as a whole continent with racist vulgarities.

    George Washington warned that the actions of a president “may have great and durable consequences from their having been established at the commencement of a new general government.” If history is any guide — especially in light of the examples closest to his, of Buchanan and Andrew Johnson — Mr. Trump’s first year portends a very unhappy ending.

    Oh no. White House just lost its remaining babysitter. Now, he is surrounded by “YES MEN ” .
