Trump is smart. . .

Trump is smart. He's lied so much that when he confesses, no one will believe him.

Rebuking Trump, over 130 House Republicans challenge plans to lift sanctions against Putin ally

In a rebuke to the Trump administration, 136 Republicans joined House Democrats Thursday to oppose a Treasury Department plan to lift Russian sanctions against companies controlled by an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The overwhelming 362 to 53 vote will not prevent the Trump administration from easing sanctions on three companies connected to Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch with ties to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, as Senate Republicans narrowly blocked a similar measure on Wednesday.

But the House vote does mean that a majority of Republicans on Capitol Hill oppose President Trump’s efforts to soften punitive measures on a Russian oligarch — a rejection with potential implications for the administration’s continued stance on Russia, and for the GOP lawmakers who backed the plan to ease the sanctions.


Treasury last month said it intended to lift sanctions the U.S. imposed last year against Deripaska’s companies, including a major aluminum producer, while keeping sanctions intact against Deripaska himself. The company sanctions initially caused havoc with global aluminum prices, prompting European allies to complain.

Is Republican support for Trump beginning to fade? Maybe some are coming to their senses in light of his recent actions and his plummeting poll numbers.

Senior Trump adviser: Workers are 'better off' not getting paychecks

While Lori McLaurin, a furloughed federal worker, wonders just how close she is to becoming homeless, Trump’s top economic adviser, Kevin Hassett, claims federal workers are “better off” because of the Trump shutdown.

<snip>

While McLaurin and 800,000 federal workers go without a paycheck, an out-of-touch White House is trying to make the claim that federal workers should be happy about their situation. In an interview with PBS Newshour, Hassett, chair of the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers, made a bizarre case of why unpaid federal workers are the lucky ones.

A huge share of government workers were going to take vacation days, say between Christmas and New Year’s,” Hassett said. “And then we have a shutdown, and so they can’t go to work. So then they have the vacation, but they don’t have to use their vacation days.”

Thus, Hassett concluded, “In some sense they’re better offn

The classics are never get old. Sitting around with family over the holidays

with a classic rock station playing in the background when this song comes on:



My sister and I gave a nostalgic sigh, our daughters remember the song and then my adult grandkids start singing along. Who would have expected this song to have a 3 generation audience?

FWIW - inside Trump's orbit, advisers are feeling good about how he did during the Oval Office address. The main point they have all emphasized is that Trump, who is often described in coverage as "fuming," was calm and controlled in the delivery. No prompter stumbles, etc
