What a completely appropriate analogy.

13bcaf39f26f7dcc4bbbbfd3ef0ae577.jpg

"I think the man should be in a home, quite honestly. He's as crazy as a hoot," said the 86 year-old father of James Comey yesterday to CNN, in describing Donald Trump.


J. Brien Comey continued:

"I think he (Trump) should be impeached immediately--yesterday. He's a very incompetent guy; he's out of his League."

Mr. Comey also stated that he had been for Ohio Governor John Kasich during the Republican primary, so he did not vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton.

PBS Newshour political columnist Mark Shields today characterized Donald Trump in this way ( to paraphrase)--

George Washington was the president who could not tell a lie;

Richard Nixon was the president who could not tell the truth and


Donald Trump is the president who cannot tell the difference.

"The man who coauthored “Art of the Deal” with Donald Trump ― a book often cited on the campaign trail last year ― said the president will soon look for a way out of all of his administration’s scandals.

“There is no right and wrong for Trump, there’s winning and losing,” Tony Schwartz told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “And right now, he is in pure terror that he is going to lose.”


Schwartz predicted that Trump would ultimately “lose,” but said he won’t go through an impeachment process. 


“I surely believe that at some point over the next period of time he’s going to have to figure out a way to resign,” Schwartz said in comments posted online by Mediaite. But in quitting, Trump will try to “figure out a way, as he has done all his career, to turn a loss into a victory so he will declare victory when he leaves.”....

Spending time with the family won't fly....he's got most of them working with him in th WH.....as equally unqualified for the job as he is.

Jim Bakker: Making Fun Of Trump Is The ‘Spirit Of The Antichrist’

 

Disgraced televangelist said the first horseman of the Apocalypse is here.

 

 

http://www.huffingto...n=us_weird-news

 

 

I wasn't aware Jim Bakker was still alive.

According to Wikipedia, the first horseman is either Conguest or Pestilence, depending upon the source.

I don't understand where making fun of Trump is either one?

Of course, Bakker's theological training/experience may be different from other people's.

I wasn't either-- but I remember it was Tammy who died in that well-televised cancer case, a long time ago.

Jim Bakker's never been emotionally stable.

If he ain't going nowhere its cuz he's afraid to take his overseas trip and deal with Israel and Syria. Or his staff is afraid what gaffes he might say while over there. Or he might cancel to try to put out the fires he's lit over here. The jerk is a regular arsonist.

when trump outperforms obama by neutralizing that fat ugly little north korean bleep then all will be forgotten.

All you need are a couple of the Senate schtoozes to break ranks, and independent prosecutors may be appointed, subpoenas may be issued, prosecutions of real crimes may happen. Call em schtoozes all you want, they can help unravel this presidency almost as much as Trump is.

It gets legally technical.  A special prosecutor is appointed by the president or the attorney general.  The AG can also fire said prosector.  Trump or Sessions.

 

The House or Senate can create special (select) committees to investigate, such as the Benghazi Inquisition, err, Select Committee. Longest, most expensive special or select committee in US history.

Of course, Paul Ryan of Mitch McConnell with acquiesence of Republicans will appoint chair, etc.  All would be dominated and controlled by Republicans.

I agree but I doan think the democrats at this juncture can really help themselves.

 

once people like schumer and durbin start pouring out the hate, I think they will turn off GOP senators they will need.

 

they might even turn off susan collins. :lol:

Hibi--Depends what polling firm does the polling.  MorningConsult does the politico.com poll, and politico has said for the past two months MC has significantly higher Pro-Trump ratings than other polling firms.  Considering that, it's interesting that MC's monthly poll shows Trump voters are beginning to desert him.  Let's see what the Gallop (sp?) Poll numbers are for Trump.

 

NipkowDisc--read what Republican Congressional leaders are saying about Trump.  McCain is comparing Trump's situation to Watergate and talking Impeachment. :)

mccain is a schtootz.

Trump approval rating hits new low, 42%--and disapproval rating ties record high, 50%.

 

Trump is losing his core voters approval.

 

Poll was conducted last Fri. through Sun., before this weeks' bombshells.  Link:

I thought DUMP was in the 30s several months ago???
