I can only imagine the furor if a President Hilary Clinton appointed a foreign agent to be head of National Security and was then given a treasure trove of classified information.  Where is the outrage from the GOP on Flynn's appointment?  Where is Jason Cheffetz?

Will the Republicans shut down their own government now that Trump wants to raise the debt ceiling?

Yes, either way Trump is a minority president. The only thing that

bothers me a little is that using all eligible voters makes every

president a minority president. 

 

Well, sorry to bother you, then. :mellow:

I was pointing out that the "voice of Real America" as some people on here like to characterize Trump's election is actually a minority of the actual US population.

 

I wasn't correcting you, but rather elaborating on your post.

We're using different numbers. I only meant people who actually voted,

not every one who was eligible to vote. If we used those, every president

would be a minority president. Of actual voters, Donny got, rounded up,

46% of the vote. And he wonders why there are so many protesters.

The last statistic I saw had it at 26% voted Trump and 74% either voted for someone else or didn't vote at all.

25%-- That does indeed make Trump the minority president.

Actually it was less than half. All it says is that people

will fall for promises, even promises that are pretty

illogical on their face. You've been Trumped.

Maybe when Lindsay Graham is investigating the Obama wire taps for baby Trump he can also look into what happened to his inauguration crowds ...

WASHINGTON (AP) — The top Republican on the House intelligence committee said he has not seen any evidence to back President Donald Trump's claim that the Obama administration wiretapped him during the 2016 campaign and suggested the news media were taking the president's weekend tweets too literally.

"The president is a neophyte to politics — he's been doing this a little over a year," Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told reporters Tuesday. "I think a lot of the things he says, I think you guys sometimes take literally."

You know, during all the campaigning I thought that ordinarily, Hillary Clinton wouldn't be such a bad president, but she had too much BAGGAGE to be entering the white house with.

 

But, not to be outdone, Trump busies himself with creating an ever HEAVIER load of baggage to be able to do the job he was elected to do. 

 

One would figure the POTUS would have enough to busy theirselves with to NOT have the time to waste on incessant "twitter tantrums".

 

North Korea testing long-range missles...

 

U.S. and IRAQI forces still struggling to retake Mosul....

 

People and their children being killed in their homes by stray "drive-by" bullets....

 

Market and currency instability....

 

And that's just the tip of the iceberg.  so, TRUMP'S biggest concern?

 

Something that may or may not have happened based on undisclosed and unreliable sources.

On the subject of Obama ordering wire taps of Trump, Old Spicer said yesterday that "there was no question there was something to it" ... because ... "there are enough reports out there about it."

So, has the white house turned the corner and now believes the press is very reliable?

The reason why Trump just doesn't pick up the phone to find out if there is any merit to the tapping is that he wants to keep the (his) story going.
