Corey Booker is saying it the right way--

"Trump is weak and submissive." (This was on All In, MSNBC.)

That's what we should be saying.


Is there even one Republican who is expressing queasiness?

I know it's too much to ask for consistency with the GOP, but after 8 years of them bashing Obama for his courtesy to other leaders, you'd think Trump's obeisance to Putin would twinge at them just a bit.

In the last month, he's made it clear that he considers Russia and North Korea major powers, that Putin is to be fawned over, and that the our best allies are "foes".

And now this news conference, where he's so obviously kowtowing to Putin--
But they probably will come away and say how tough he was. He'll say it.

And at the very same time, he is telling everyone that our Dept of Justice and FBI are criminally persecuting Putin and him.

As the Birchers used to say, "None dare call it treason!"

Well, the GOP certainly won't.

Did Trump Just Help Stop Brexit?

The Brexiteers’ next gambit was nihilistically lashing out, by using Trump to piss all over May’s compromise, which he duly did, the day after behaving like someone on PCP at the NATO summit. “I would have done [Brexit] much differently. I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn’t listen to me,” he told the Murdoch-owned Sun, adding that any new trade deal with the U.S. would be off the table if May got her way. He also went on to tout Boris Johnson as a potential alternative prime minister. And this all spilled out at the very moment May was pleading with Trump at the dinner at Blenheim Palace to give her a new trade deal to ease the pain of leaving the E.U. It was a brutal and unprecedented attack on a sitting prime minister as she was actually hosting the American president for a visit. It was a knee-capping.

It was also, in my immediate view, a serious Brexiteer blunder. Trump is despised in Britain, as he is across Europe. His endorsement of the Brexiteers at this critical moment is humiliating for May but potentially a boon for her as well. If Donald Trump is now the face of Brexit in Britain, Brexit is in trouble. And Brits will not take kindly to their own prime minister being dictated to and humiliated by an American president, as he lands on British soil. That he is also touting Boris will only deepen the reaction.

Ends with an epic rant about Trump's lies.
