Trump  has apparently declared war on the Republican House Freedom Caucus.  Basically, it appears he is saying get on board or he will cooperate with the Democrats.

Ironically, Trump's base and the HFC base are pretty much the same people.

 

And it seems Chris Christie's problems just got worse.  He is now "working" for Trump as chair of a commission on opioid abuse in US.  He will be working for Jared Kushner's new organization in the White House.  That should be interesting.

 

 

Re' your last point:  Yes, Christie put Kushner's daddy in prison when Christie was an Attorney General and now Christie will be reporting to son Jared.  Awkward!

Also, now that Ivanka is an "official" albeit unpaid member of the White House staff, how long before there are numerous investigations and reports into her business affairs and potential conflicts?  Not from the government, but from concerned sources and the media.

The businesses in my area sure were smart (with good foresight)  in making restrooms, one toilet / all genders..  We don't have to worry about who uses it.

jamesjazzguitar--In the Senate, Republicans only outnumber Democrats 52-47 (There's one Independent, Maine's Angus King).  Republicans will need 60 votes to confirm Gorsuch, Trump's Supreme Court nominee; Trump HAS to reach out to Democrats to get to 60 votes, no ifs, ands, or buts.

James responded about the "nuclear option," but isn't Sanders still an independent that caucuses with the Democrats?

Donny Trump @dontmakemegomommy I would have been one of

those heroes, but I had bone spurs. Let me tell you, those things

hurt like hell. Big time.

 

Bone spurs are bony projections that develop along the edges of bones. Bone spurs (osteophytes) often form where bones meet each other — in your joints. They can also form on the bones of your spine. The main cause of bone spurs is the joint damage associated with osteoarthritis.

 

So how's Trump coming along with that osteoarthritis these days?

THAT'S a more scurrilous  slap in the face to veterans and soldiers than the one PATTON gave!  This clown gives conceit a BAD NAME!

 

And in THIS case, I'm betting those "bone spurs"  were located in DADDY'S WALLET!

Runs into another wall--Hawaii District Court Judge Derrick Watson upholds broad block on Trump travel ban.  From his ruling: "The Court will not crawl into a corner, pull the shutters closed, and pretend it has not seen what it has."

 

In his ruling, Judge Watson also quoted what Trump said to a Nashville crowd about Travel ban #2: it's "a watered down version of the first one".
