I like the speech but I thought he was going to stamp out

the lies Trump told

Trump trying to overthrow democracy is 'inevitable',

Donald Trump trying to stage a coup and overthrow democracy is 'inevitable', says top US historian

'There are certainly elements of his approach which are fascistic,' says Professor Timothy Snyder

It is “inevitable” that Donald Trump will try to stage a coup and overthrow American democracy, a prominent US historian has claimed.

Professor Timothy Snyder, a leading academic at Yale University, said the US President was already displaying “fascistic” tendencies and could be tempted by a new political system that does not rely on elections.

Asked whether he thought Mr Trump would seek to replicate Adolf Hitler’s move to take full control of government by declaring a state of emergency, Professor Snyder told the Salon website: “I think it’s pretty much inevitable that they will try. The reason? I think that is that the conventional ways of being popular are not working out for them.

“The conventional way to be popular or to be legitimate in this country is to have some policies, to grow your popularity ratings and to win some elections. I don’t think 2018 is looking very good for the Republicans along those conventional lines.

“This means they could be seduced by the notion of getting into a new rhythm of politics, one that does not depend upon popular policies and electoral cycles."

Despite his belief that Mr Trump will take use measures to secure his position, Professor Snyder said he thought the US state was strong enough to withhold an illegitimate attempt to seize control of it.

“My gut feeling is that Trump and his administration will try and that it won’t work”, he said. “Not so much because we are so great but because we have a little bit of time to prepare. I also think that there are enough people and enough agencies of the government who have also thought about this, and would not necessarily go along.”

Watching MSNBC...

A reporter asked Nunes about the memo and he replied...

"talk to the Democrats, I don't talk to you "

What a nasty vile lifeform.

The 3 people whom Trump thinks about 24/7

Here is my timeline...

After today's meeting at 5 pm concerning the "memo", I think the that the House Intel committee will recommend firing Rosenstein based on their lies regarding that memo. Trump will fire Rosenstein, put someone in place that will do his bidding and this person will fire Mueller.

Watching Rachel Maddow show w/ Joy Reid filling in...

And yes, a sitting President can be indicted
