For the longest time, I thought impeachment would be in the bag, but then some posts on EF and my own research lead me to learn that, indeed, impeachment is not as easy a process as I thought!

Plus, as I've now posted umpteenth times....we would get Pence.

I wish the President would just play golf, honestly, and stay away from making messes in DC and worldwide.
Same as Nixon the issue with Trump will not be what he actually did but it will be the validity of the cover up that has the potential to destroy his Presidency if he is not entirely truthful

For example,
Quote:
At a joint news conference with Colombian President Juan Manual Santos Thursday, President Donald Trump was asked a very simple question: Had he urged then-FBI Director James Comey to slow or stop an FBI investigation into deposed national security adviser Michael Flynn?

"No. No. Next question," Trump responded.
Here we have a very black and white situation where either Trump or Comey was lying. Will the truth ever emerge, who knows

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

If only he would have sexual relations with an apprentice and get caught. It'd be so much easier to impeach him then.

Well there was a report that claimed the stuff he is prescribed to keep his "golden locks" in good shape has a contra effect against sexual performance

But I don't think that's the only reason the US taxpayer forks out a million a day so Melania doesn't have to sleep with him .

yet nothing seems to stick to get him impeached!

Is he that unshakeable or are these revelations just media hype?

The US airborn attack on Iranian backed fighters yesterday in Syria will impress the Saudi Arabians, but will do nothing for Syrian peace,

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
President Donald Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office that James Comey was a "crazy nut job" and firing him had relieved “great pressure”.

Mr Trump reportedly told Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak: "I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job. I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off. I’m not under investigation."

The comments were reported by the New York Times and taken from a White House document summarising the meeting.

Can this really be so!!

Original New York Times article

Seems there is only one nut job

EDIT - Newspapers are now claiming that in answer to their questions the White House is not denying Trump told the Russians Comey is a nut job

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

This poll which used to be favourable for Trump (I believe the only one to ever show Trump's popularity over 50%) now shows his popularity at 41%; see picture below!

Full story here

This poll here has him down to 38%.

The Gallup poll here also has him down to 38%

Well that nut job is going to be spending the next few days in the company of a large number of Muslims who make him look like a powerless pauper. Oh to be a fly on the wall.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

"Trump has a strongman persona. And that endears him to autocratic leaders in the Middle East," Hamid said. "They never liked that Obama would bring up human rights concerns in their meetings. They don't have to worry about that as much with President Trump, who is not prioritizing human rights or democracy."

Those pesky human rights! From NPR.

Another pearl in the same article:

"And in a general election debate last year, Trump blasted Hillary Clinton because the Clinton Foundation had taken money from Saudi Arabia. But his remarks were as much a criticism of the country's human rights record as of her."I'd like to ask you right now why don't you give back the money that you've taken from certain countries that treat certain groups of people so horribly?" he said."

Where has all the outrage about Saudi Arabia, from the President and many on this board, gone? Or are we outraged only when politically convenient?

Yeah Obama who expanded the war and helped arming the terrorists is not a dick at all.... neither is hillary... i mean if you "stand up" for women but at the same time you are taking money from Saudi arabia THAT DOESNT MAKE YOU A DICK AT ALL.


After all, the most important Thing of a politician is his image not his policies, am i right, AM I RIGHT, OR AM I RIGHT!?
And now Trump is in Saudi planning an arms deal

Pass the pop corn, more rumours

Quote:
Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner 'person of interest in Russia investigation'
Source

Remember Jared Kushner failed to disclose meetings with Russian officials in his security clearance paperwork.

According to Reuters
Quote:
Apparently the White House is considering invoking an obscure ethics rule that would bar special prosecutor Robert Mueller from investigating clients of his firm (WilmerHale). Those clients include Paul Manafort and … Jared Kushner.

Oh FFS!!! I've a good mind to stick to fashion commentary, such as... How hideous was Melania's orange leather skirt? And why does Ivanka wear those horrid flowery dresses that my grandmother wouldn't have been seen out in? I'm sure she had a housecoat the same pattern as the dress Ivanka wore yesterday.

Back to the serious stuff......
