Hmmph! We'll see. This is the path of a downward spiral to the crushing end of a "sad" tragedy of a man who has no idea what he is doing.

Trump is the Truth, Trump is the Light and Trump is the only hope for America and for the World. Trump brings his message from God and is the answer to the prayers of millions of God loving people all over the World. When the hypocritical, gay-loving communists see his light and hear his words their skin is burned and their blood begins to boil. It is like an acid to those dim-witted communists who live only on fake news and babel.

From Kurt Schlichter in today's Townhall:
"So the Menschian thinkers who usually scream “Treason!” are now screaming “Obstruction of Justice!” It’s adorable when they learn new terms and try to use them correctly; they’re so proud of themselves and their vocabulary building that you almost feel bad having to point out that they sound like idiots.
It is nice, though, to have liberals finally come out against the abuse of executive power, misuse of classified material, and Russians. Welcome to the party, except we know you’re full of Schumer."
Impeachment, TT? Never happen. I'd bet on it. You wouldn't. Who'll do it? The dims? BWAAAHAHAHA!

Brooks' editorial today nails the orange man.

Wowy is like the old outer limits show, something from another dimension crossing over but only communicating with static. He does channel sea bass from time to time, as knowing knowers know they are not real but just chain pullers!

Mr. POTUS it this be thy witch hunt, what should we do with the witch? As in olden days , those days the conservatives want to go back to [ witches, demons, night vapors, curses, another " sacrifice" of a man-g-d, or g-dman, g-dnods, angels, slaves, rampant sex by aged old men for holy purposes, ignorance of desert dwellers { ignorance not the same as stupid} , anti-science due to ancient book concerns, making women second class citizens but upholding their dignity as you would a valuable race horse, etc, etc] -- did i mention segregated water fountains and having the black music top 40 separate from white music where musicians were stealing their riffs from former involuntary immigrants.

Me, I believe it is them there gay loving muslims causing all this problem. They of course do not hear the "word" { voice in the head} properly, as any sensible talking ape should.

You impeachers, please think this through-- this has been the plan of the right all along [ & of the deity since the world began] to get the mass deludes to vote his orange man into office, where pence couldn't have gotten that done, but knowing IT of childish ways would explode , their plot could as good patriots help remove his Craziness , with simple contrition of just saying Whoops! Google a few Pence speeches and see a Rev Floyd of Springdale and/or Pat Robertson/Jim Bakker channeling types who once if are enabled to come to power will make us like Iran, just using a different descendant of a holy man who would cut the throat of his own son and burn him for a most "pleasin odor" to the G-ds.

Of course some of the smart butt men of the holy coffee drinkers divines, which I am sad to say are of the right wing, stated that if MT is accused of being a witch they would like to volunteer to be the ones to check her all over for signs of a witch. guess you cant really call them perverts considering her husband's words of the joy of grabbing someones daughter.

but I must say in spite of trumps divinity to the mindless, not even the deluded supporters or IT, the anointed Orange man knows the day or the hour of the coming of the indictment - be on guard. That is my translation.

I just appreciate how smart Kanye is and all the best people he knows and the really good words he uses.

moz, you political neophyte. Try Republicans who are afraid of getting mid-termed. If the evidence from a special investigation starts mounting against Trump and leads to the potential of convictions, I would not want to be a Republican supporting Trump and facing a voter base. Those healthcare town halls will be love fests compared with what they would face then.
