    Is it just me – or does this read like a bunch of middle school kids with way too much time on their hands and access to computers?

    JEEZUS Almighty – we’re talking about the White House staff here – not some bunch of teenage drama queens.

    Excuse me – but didn’t I read the news coverage the age range of this Scouting group was 12 to 18 yr olds?

    so why is Trump – a 71-yr-old man – who seems so insecure – that he has to brag that this group was totally worshipping him – and for 5 minutes after he left the stage.

    What obsessive need does Trump have that he really thinks a group of 40,000 (?) kids is evidence that he is such a damn great president?

    Seriously – I would be willing to bet if any female singer or dancer was up there on the stage – they would have gotten a longer and louder standing ovation.

    Trump’s arrogance must have no boundaries – IMHO

    If it was not so damn tragic for some of the people I know and for the country. Trump and these screw up would be hilarious. I am not getting any pleasure in being right about him. In fact it would have been so much better for everyone if I had been wrong. Many are still believing that it is all in pay back for Obama and how the neocons treated him. Blinded by the partisan politics, they are walking off a cliff with trump.

    I just posted this on Proud to be a liberal , you are having such a bad influence on me I guess!: YOu know I actually do try to not be offensive. Even some what high brow honestly I do! But sadly the only thing that is coming to mind to explain her taking such a job. Is perhaps the donkey died in the south of the border act in the side show. Now some will get that, some perhaps are not old enough to have even heard of such acts. So… Here it goes, it is questionable as to which would be more embarrassing to to be doing. A spokes person for Donald trump, or having sex on stage with a donkey for the entertainment of the crowd?

    Take special note where it states Tom Cotton’s aides said this bill did not include the low-level temporary workers – ..

    So – I guess Trump’s Mar-a-lago will still be able to get all their temporary workers from whatever foreign countries are the cheapest that year?

    Interesting reading……but let’s see what happens when Trump himself talks about the Deep State is out to get him.

    Read this article very carefully – and take special note of how that one woman reminded Trump of her group that made a million phone calls after a ‘certain video came out’.

    AND this woman – who claims to be such a God-fearing Christian – is bragging about to Trump – in order for Trump to do what she and her fellow church-people want?

    OH HELL NO…this is in no way what I believe Christianity is all about. Pray tell me – when did Jesus ever teach his disciples to grope women’s p_____y?

    I’ll go out on a very long limb here and say that I would be happy to give a million dollars to the first person who can show me that particular Bible verse.

    WOW – this is really interesting ….

    Apparently Steve Bannon is not a big super hero in the Vatcan’s view??

    And then that dig at Newt Gingrich….OUCH

    Seems this journalist is sticking to his story about Trump calling the White House ‘a dump’ when he was at his own NJ golf club.

    I wonder if this could be another time where Trump said something that was not true – you know, like those two calls Trump claimed he received – one from the leader of the Boy Scouts and then the President of Mexico?

    If a man will lie about things like this – then what wouldn’t he lie about?

    Sad fact is – if and when anything serious is really threatening our country, who the hell is going to believe Trump if tells us about it?

    Trump’s supporters will excuse their boy because he is ‘just being Trump’ – indulging in hyperbole – which is what Trump himself called it when he exaggerates – according to Trump’s own words in his infamous book – The Art of the Deal.

    When does hyperbole become telling actual lies?

    And one last thing – does anyone believe these Trump supporters would be excusing their President Obama if it had been Obama telling these lies about receiving phone calls that never happened – or calling the White House a dump?

    Yeah – I don’t think so either.

    Are these FAKE Christians that love Trump the false prophets we hear about in the Bible?

    OH NO….Russia is mad at Trump. So what does Trump do? He turns around and blames Congress.

    I heard yesterday it took Trump 5 days to sign this sanctions bill that Congress overwhelmingly passed. I also understand from news coverage that this particular bill not only imposed sanctions on Russia – but that it effectively tied Trump’s hands so he could not change anything.

    I suspect that is what is really eating at Trump – how dare the Congress do their jobs and tie his hands.

    Those tiny – tiny – hands… 🙂

    • BTW – did you notice Trump signed this bill without any photo ops and a big smile on his face while he signed it?

      WOW – for every Executive Order Trump signed, there were cameras everywhere and Trump was smiling so big.

      But for the first piece of actual legislation that actually got passed overwhelmingly through Congress does not even get a photo op – let alone the big smiles.

      Hmmmm…..isn’t that what a President is supposed to do – to sign the laws that CONGRESS passes?

    —Barack and MIchelle Obama – now here is an example of class, integrity, honor, compassion, empathy and dignity.

    There was never one day I was embarrassed when President Barack Obama was in office. I did not always agree with his decisions or even his politics – but that is what our democracy is all about.

    I remember President Obama’s first inauguration day. My oldest grand daughter was 3 yrs old and I was recovering from cancer surgery and chemo treatments.

    I took a lot of pictures of my grand daughter next to the t.v. coverage of our new President Obama. So much hope – so much excitement and so much anticipation of what could be accomplished.

    And then the reality of these same Evangelcial Kristian Konservatives and fellow Republicans who gleefully announced their #1 job was to make Obama fail.

    And this was after 2 years of the Birtherism Lie crappola these folks spread and continued to spread for the next 8 years during Obama’s two terms.

    BTW – Trump was the KIng of the Birtherism LIe – wasn’t he? Let’s not EVER forget that.

    This is one reason I think these Trump Evangelicals are FAKE Christians. The Bible tells us we are not to tell lie – and knowingly to continue to tell the same lie is worse – IMHO.

    How in Holy Hell can God bless any self-claiming Christian choosing to continue to spread the malicious Birtherism Lie – and then to think God has sent you Donald Trump as his personal White Messiah to fix America?

    What arrogance – IMHO God cannot and will not reward arrogance.

  13. This is the pro Hitler Nazi ideology of Stephen Miller who is sitting in the West Wing and advising the POTUS. These are his chilling words and views. His efforts parallel those of Steve Bannon, Kelly Anne Conway, Betsy DeVos and many others in the Trump administration. They are well funded by Billionaires (Pioneer Fund, Bradley Foundation etc) who extol white supremacy and whose goal is to rid our nation of people of color in order to control the gene pool.
    “To be white is to be a striver, a crusader, an explorer and a conqueror. We build, we produce, we go upward. And we recognize a central lie of American race relations. We don’t exploit other groups—we don’t gain anything from their presence. They need us, and not the other way around . . . . America was, until this past generation, a white country, designed for ourselves and our posterity. It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us.” — Steven Miller.
