You say "push the envelope" others say "easily triggered". Phos, wherever he is, would probably say "Winning!"

I think "alarmist" is a bit over-doing it, right? "Alarmist" is probably being reserved for when he "pushes the envelope" and is dancing the fandango in the Rose Garden in Melania's panties.
Dancing in the rose garden is preferable to incessant tweets.

Very amusing .

A quick Google will show that Trump has always been a serial liar. The idea that the msm somehow has pushed him to exaggerate to create balance is "interesting" .
Even more interesting are the posts criticising msm ignoring that Trump's favourite Fox news is the biggest in msm (bigly!)

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Qatari officials have reportedly chosen not to share information with special counsel Robert Mueller that they have gathered regarding White House adviser Jared Kushner concerning alleged influence by the United Arab Emirates on Trump associates, including Kushner.

Three sources familiar with the discussions said the Qatari officials don't want to hand over the evidence to Mueller because they don't want to negatively affect the relationship with the Trump administration.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Texas notaries are required to sign and date agreements, as well as provide a certificate verifying those who sign documents.

However, notary Erica Jackson is now facing an investigation after she failed to do all three for the 2016 nondisclosure agreement regarding Stormy Daniels's alleged affair with President Trump. Jackson’s stamp is on the document.

Source

So is the document still valid without these three things?

Putting on my foil hat; could the notary stamp be faked?

Jackson told the Morning News that she did not recall the specific agreement.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The foxes have now concluded their investigations into allegations of attacks at the chicken coop and have found no evidence of deliberate harm caused to any chicken. Any chicken deaths are attributed to natural causes.

Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said on Monday that "there is evidence" showing the Russians attempted to help Trump during the 2016 presidential election, contradicting a draft report from the panel.

From The Donald - tweeting away.

"Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!"

I bet that Rex is happy to be out of the mad house.

I'd love to hear what he thinks about Trump now, given that he called him a Moron when he did work for him.

It is more of a circus than a reality show!

Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, there are concerns about her record of running a "black" prison and allegations of torture.

Both appointments need to be confirmed by the Senate.

I am sure Tillerson regrets his decision to join this administration even though he seems to be one of the few who left with his reputation intact.

I remember he said a year ago "I didn't want this job … my wife told me I'm supposed to do this"
and
"at 65 years old, at the end of a four-decade career at ExxonMobil, he had expected to retire: “I was going to go to the ranch to be with my grandkids.”

Meanwhile
Quote:
President Trump's personal assistant, John McEntee, was fired Monday and was escorted out of the White House because of an "unspecified security issue,"
and

Quote:
An Axios investigation that surveyed the 23 House Republicans considered to be in the most vulnerable positions this November found that just two of them, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) would be interested in having the president stump for them,
a sign of the president's growing unpopularity among GOP lawmakers..
Source

Probably hidden by the rest of today's news is;
Quote:
The Treasury Department announced on Monday that it had recorded its largest monthly budget deficit ($215 billion) in six years in February.

So Tillerson out after criticising Russia, whoever would have thought it?, not that we doubted it but I'll just leave this here.

Yes Pompeo fits in well in the Trump House. He's also a liar and basically dishonest and corrupt

And it seems that Rex found out reading the same tweet that we did.
