Wow. Sad, but true.


John Aravosis

Trump has more preconditions for meeting with Mueller than meeting with America’s enemies.

Trump admits that his tax cuts are for the rich.


John Fugelsang

Trump pretends to be a billionaire and the Koch brothers have over $41billion apiece but they all share one core belief - the minimum wage is too damn high.

PS- Hey #MAGA, he just admitted that his tax cut was mainly for the rich.
(And he's trying to do another via exec order)

Donald J. Trump

The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade. I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks & more. I made.....

Here's a different perspective on Trump's pay offs.

Overheard: “I’m starting to think that someone who paid $250K to have sex twice may not be the best at making deals.”

White House pushes follow-up Trump-Putin meeting to next year

The White House on Wednesday pushed to next year President Trump’s planned meeting with Russian President Vladi­mir Putin, a move that comes amid intensifying criticism of Trump’s conflicting statements on Russian interference in U.S. elections.

“The President believes that the next bilateral meeting with President Putin should take place after the Russia witch hunt is over, so we’ve agreed that it will be after the first of the year,” national security adviser John Bolton said in a statement, referring to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump has sharply criticized the investigation.

Last week, the White House announced that Trump had asked Bolton to invite Putin to Washington in the fall for a follow-up meeting to their summit in Helsinki this month.

Here's a little something to think about regarding Trump's sexual dalliances.


Tea Pain
The President had so much sexual baggage he had to create a corporation to hide it all and we're splittin' hairs over whether they paid check or cash?

It's time to vote this corrupt GOP congress out of power and introduce this immoral president to the rule of law.

Trump Just Illegally Used Taxpayer Money To Hold A Campaign Event In Missouri

Trump was supposed to be addressing the VFW in Missouri, but he invited Republican Senate Candidate Josh Hawley on stage and allowed him to speak in what was an illegal use of taxpayer money to pay for what turned into a campaign event.

Trump said, “Hopefully, your new senator to be Josh Hawley. We need Josh badly. Josh. Thank you. In fact, Josh, do me a favor, come up here just for a second. Just shake my hand. This guy is a special man. Come here, Josh, come here.”


Presidents are supposed to reimburse for their travel on Air Force One for campaign events. It is illegal for presidents to use government resources, besides the Secret Service because they go with the president everywhere for campaign events.

The problem with what happened in Missouri is that the White House is claiming that Trump’s speech is a presidential event, not a campaign event, but as you can clearly see, Trump was campaigning with Hawley in Missouri.


Hmmm. I wonder if anything could be made of this.

Maxine Waters Calls Donald Trump 'Putin's Apprentice'

I’m not surprised about what happened in Helsinki. I’m not surprised about the private meeting. I’m not surprised about this president standing up for Putin. As a matter of fact, I think he is Putin’s apprentice. He’s been under his tutelage for a long time now, and he intends to get it done and the American people are standing idly by. And the Republican Party should be ashamed that they are allowing it to happen.

They have no courage. They’re not standing up for America. I dare them to talk about how patriotic they are given what they are allowing this president to do.
