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.

Vice President Mike Pence said Friday there's "no comparison whatsoever" between his use of a private email account while governor of Indiana and Hillary Clinton's private server during her time as Secretary of State.

Pence used a private AOL email account to conduct some state business as governor, his spokesman confirmed to NBC News Thursday night.

"There's no comparison whatsoever between Hillary Clinton's practice — a private server, mishandling classified information, destroying emails when they were requested by the Congress and by officials," the vice president told reporters during a surprise stop at an Irish pub in Janesville, Wisconsin

Indiana law allows public officials to use personal email, but requires that all records regarding state business be retained and available for public information requests.
 
Pence Press Secretary Marc Lotter said the practice was "similar to previous governors" and added that the communications were being reviewed by outside counsel hired by Pence at the end of his term, transferred and properly archived by the state.

When he was Governor, Mike Pence used a private server for his email communications which included classified information and it was hacked. Pence was a fierce critic of Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server.


The Trump Administration will be remembered for not just lying, but also for hypocrisy.

Trump lied to anchors about immigration to get ‘positive press coverage’ in run-up to speech-

 

“Basically they fed us things that they thought these anchors would like, that they thought would give them positive press coverage for the next few hours. A senior administration official admitted that it was a misdirection play.

And you will note that when the president was actually out there speaking to the American public, he didn’t talk about a path to legal status,” she explained.

“He talked about reforming the legal immigration system so it’s merit-based,” Murray said. “That means fewer low-skilled workers, fewer people coming on family ties, more people coming on high-skilled visas.

 

That is still closer to a Stephen Miller and Steve Bannon framework of the world than Gang of Eight, who pushed comprehensive immigration reform.”

 

 

 

 

Merit based is the way to go.    The change made to legal immigration based on family ties doesn't benefit the nation.

They always used to hang them high in Kansas. That's what happened to Truman Capote's two In Cold Blood killers. I've got to say the French have their Guillotine and the Wild West had their rope.

But the sophisticated people on the East Coast, like yourself, usually preferred to endow the death-row criminals with the chair.

If a death row inmate was hanged efficiently, did they say that he had been "well-hung"?

Republicans Alarmed Over Obama’s Executive Orders, Cheer Trump’s On

For the past eight years, Republicans skewered President Obama as an "emperor" who acted outside of his "legal authority" for the executive orders he issued from the Oval Office. Now, they are cheering President Donald Trump as he issues a raft of his own. http://www.nbcnews.c...trump-s-n712231

 

 

Yeah, can you spell HYPOCRITES????

Trump has asked the Intelligence Community to come up with reasons to support his travel ban.  Sounds a bit like the cart before the horse thinking regarding Iraq.  Didn't Trump criticize that?

In last week's stress conference Trump ranted about Hillary receiving questions in advance in a debate with sanders.  He suggested that if that was him he should get the electric chair.  Well ...

This seems a little confusing to me Megyn Kelly also says this, "For the record, my book 'Settle for More' does not suggest Trump had any debate Qs in advance, nor do I believe that he did," she wrote.

I'll be glad to put the cost of the electrocution on my electric bill.
