Wow! See how Trump's speech has deteriorated since the election.


We knew he was slipping, but I didn't realize it was this bad.

I never want to hear another Republican speak about family values or being pro-life.

Trump administration ends relief program for immigrants with medical issues

Serena Badia has undergone heart surgery five times. Three of those procedures were back home in Spain where doctors told her she wouldn’t live past age 12.

She came to the U.S. with her mother and sister, hoping doctors here would be able to help where the Spanish surgeons failed. Serena, now age 14, has been seeing doctors in the U.S. for over a year as they attempt to rebuild her pulmonary artery.

But her treatment here is in jeopardy after immigration authorities told her family they have 33 days to leave the U.S. or risk not being able to return.

“If they don't let us come back to the United States, then I won't be able to get treated,” the 14-year-old told ABC News. “We don't know what to do because we don't want to be illegal here.”


Just when you think Trump has reached the bottom of the barrel, you find out the barrel has a basement. If Republican members of Congress support this action, they are no better than Trump and they all will have blood on their hands.

Ex-FBI Director James Comey violated department policies with Trump memos, watchdog says

Source: CNBC

Former FBI Director James Comey violated Justice Department and FBI policies, as well as his employment agreement, in his handling of memos documenting conversations with President Donald Trump, a Justice Department watchdog said Thursday.

Comey, who was fired by Trump in May 2017, is not being prosecuted for the alleged violations detailed in the scathing report by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General.

“By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees—and the many thousands more former FBI employees—who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information,” the report said.

The report focused on Comey’s “disclosure of sensitive investigative information and handling of certain memoranda,” which included how he created, stored and handled seven memos detailing “one-to-one” interactions with Trump from Jan. 6, 2017 through April 11, 2017.
