the american mainstream media, Bogie56, closet democrats for over 50 years, are merely sparking to their defeat last year. nothing more.

 

publically denigrating trump will not change last year's election results. they want pence because at least to them he is a known quantity. they will not get him...

 

 

Falling back on the "sour grapes" election defeat, as you do, time after time here, only shows that you have no answers to Trump critics accusations of his erratic, temperamental behaviour, completely inappropriate for an occupant of the Oval Office.

 

Let's face it - Trump's election victory on November 8th was the highlight day for Trump supporters. It's been an embarrassing downhill slide ever since. Why do you think Trump keeps reliving election night, even now, nine months later.

 

Would you dare bet against Trump's reliving it yet again (including how the media pundits were wrong) when he has his campaign rally tomorrow might? Yeah, the base loves it, as much as Trump, because they sure don't want to concentrate on his "accomplishments" since then.

Carl Bernstein: This is the Trump story reporters need to cover
by Jackie Wattles   @jackiewattles
Is President Trump stable and competent enough to do his job?

Investigative reporter and CNN contributor Carl Bernstein says reporters must be asking those questions.

 

"Republicans in Congress, the highest of intelligence officials, the highest of military officers in our country, leaders of the business community -- all of whom have dealt with the White House, and many of them dealt personally with Donald Trump -- have come to believe that he is unfit for the presidency," Bernstein told CNN's Brian Stelter on Sunday.

What I find interesting, and troubling, is why in God's name would Kelly want this job with this man?

 

I assume it is because Kelly really cares about his country and, while maybe this is wishful thinking on his part,  feels that he can make a difference by limiting the amount of damage Trump does as President.

It's hard to believe that a US Marine 4-Star General like John Kelly, who has commanded troops on the front line, is now been reduced to babysitting a
71 year-old narcissistic-pathological liar, who has lived his life as a rich, obnoxious, autocrat--always getting his own way.

That's a sad career-ending for a man like General Kelly.

BTW-- General Kelly enlisted in the US Marine Corps during the Vietnam War.

Yes, like I said on another thread: Trump is a bad liar because his lies can easily be checked on. Like calling the White House a dump, then denying it, and now there are a 8-9 witnesses saying they heard him say it. Maybe he should stick to lying about his golf game.

Speaking of normal behavior, how is Donny going to react to Russia calling him "impotent" today because of the sanctions bill? I bet the insecure ego-in-chief is not a happy camper right now. Official babystitter, hand-holder and visitor-screener General Kelly better be careful when the crazy explodes.

If I was Trump I would have vetoed the sanctions bill, let Congress override it, then go to Big Daddy Putin and say, "Well I tried sir, but we have these three branches of government here and two of them think they are equal to me."

What's with Trump announcing to the world that the Mexican President and the Boy Scouts telephoned him to lavish praise on him only to have it so easily denied?  He's done this before too but it is far from any kind of normal behaviour never mind that of the POTUS.

This has nothing to do with any media anywhere or Democratic sour grapes.

Susan Collins is a Republican Senator from Maine.

Being prudent and professional, she didn't say this to any media.

The Senator simply didn't realize her microphone was still on.

But the truth will out.


Currently Senator Collins is in her third term.

 

same old standard daily msnbc sour grapes. :P

 

Nip is going after Republicans like Sen. Collins and Richard Painter who are not Trump sycophants.  At least there are some Republicans capable of independent and reasonable thought.  Trump is getting worse every day and they can see it.  Heck, we all can see it.  Other Republicans can probably see it, too, but are just too chicken**** to say or do anything.

American Psychoanalytic Association Says Its Members Are Free to Weigh in on Donald Trump's Obviously Troubled Mind-

 

"This month, the American Psychoanalytic Association told its roughly 3,500 members a decades-old rule against speculating on the mental health of some public figures does not apply to their members—

 

According to Scientific American, one of the association’s past presidents, Dr. Prudence Gourguechon, said the rule change was motivated by “belief in the value of psychoanalytic knowledge in explaining human behavior. We don’t want to prohibit our members from using their knowledge responsibly.”

 

The rule change was in part necessary since President Donald Trump’s “behavior is so different from anything we’ve seen before,” Gourguechon added.......

 

But there’s also grounds to wonder if relaxing a rule designed to prevent the political weaponization of a medical discipline could have consequences long beyond the current moment. We do live in an age of Dr. Phils, massive stigmatization of mental health issues and politicians quite eager to call their opponents insane.

 

Trump’s “psychological motivations are too obvious to be interesting, and analyzing them will not halt his headlong power grab,”......

How is President Pence starting to sound to everybody?

 

I get why some people voted for Trump so I'm not going to call (most of) them insane and I know some people will stick with Trump no matter what and these people wouldn't have voted for Clinton under any circumstance.  I do blame Clinton for not spending more time in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania (outside of the big cities) as she took these states for granted and you don't take any states for granted in this kind of election.

 

This is the possible scenario:  regular Republicans are going to get so concerned as Trump's approval numbers dip further, Pence, at the prodding of these Republicans, will use the 25th Amendment to "retire" Trump.  No impeachment.  Pence is the establishment's kind of Republican anyway:  hawkish, anti-abortion, anti-LGBT, pro-business, etc.  Indeed, Pence wanted to run for President this time around but he botched his proposed anti-gay legislation in Indiana so badly that several businesses threatened  to move out and his campaign never got going.  This way he gets to be President without having to work for it.  Of course, for this to happen Trump really has to go off the rails and Pence and Company have to play their cards just right.  Are we at that point yet?.

just shows you how partisan-hamstrung the democrats are. pence is the real thing, an ideologically-driven conservative.

 

they wanna nail trump for that?.  :huh:  :lol:

If the last few days doesn't answer this thread's question,  then you have mental health problems.
