Deterrence through cruelty is a failure.


"Don't worry, GOP, "impeach the motherfucker" is just lady locker room talk"


Dems in the room shook their heads, as if to say "so, you're doing it for leverage..."

Trump Referred to Shutdown as ‘Strike’ in Profanity-Laced Meeting With Democratic Leaders
The president also dropped three f-bombs and claimed Democrats wanted him impeached.


Another person familiar with the meeting disputed that Trump said “fuck” three times, though conceded he said it once.

This third source contended that the president “didn’t bring up impeachment unprompted,” but did so in the “context of how he wants to work together” with Democratic lawmakers and how impeachment efforts would be counterproductive to that. The source added that the little that McConnell did contribute included calling on Democrats to work this weekend on a solution to the shutdown impasse.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment as of press time. But according to one source familiar with the meeting, Schumer did press the president to reopen the government before continuing negotiations on a border wall. Otherwise, the Senator suggested, the president was effectively using government employees and shuttered government agencies as leverage.

“I’m not going to say it’s for leverage, but I’m not going to get a deal unless I do this," the president replied, according to the source.


He's like Waze on acid.


Trump officials to get $10,000 Raise-As potus prepared to let shutdown go on "for months-even yrs."

The pay of Pence is scheduled to rise from $230,700 to $243,500.


Spare the fake controversy - Trump to China: "Listen you mother fuckers--we're gonna tax you 25%"

"Listen you mother fuckers—we're gonna tax you 25%,” Trump said to China in this video I found. Spare me this fake controversy around Rep Rashida Tlaib.

Pelosi breaks with Justice: Trump can be indicted

In an interview to air on NBC's "Today," co-anchor Savannah Guthrie asks Nancy Pelosi, who will become House speaker at around 1:30 pm Thursday: "Do you believe the special counsel should honor and observe the Department of Justice guidance that states a sitting president cannot be indicted?"

The big picture: Pelosi replied, according to an excerpt from NBC: "No, I mean I don't think — I do not think that that is conclusive. No, I do not." With that response, she becomes the highest ranking official to suggest President Trump could be indicted while in office.

Pelosi is ready to rumble, planning to maintain the unyielding posture she took with Trump in their Oval Office standoff before the shutdown.

She tells USA Today that Trump is now entering a "different world."
