    The most long lasting part of Trump's legacy will be all the Federal judge appointments McConnell and him were able to push-through,  as well as those 3 Supreme Court justices.   Of course Trump might not have the same POV,  since no Federal judge or SC Justice was willing to take up his completely bogus the-election-was-stolen challenges.

     

     

    You seem to think "legacy" means positive achievements.  Certainly he will point to that and that is probably what you mean.

    I would say two impeachments will be Trump's "legacy" and the rise of right wing white supremacists in America.

    But CNN just played portions of his inauguration speech on it's Reality check by John Avalon and virtually none of the things he promised came to pass.  In most cases the reverse happened.  Infrastructure, Bringing people together,  the debt, unemployment.  Then there is this ...

    TOTAL ESTIMATED U.S. COVID-19 DEATHS: 396,746

    Estimated U.S. COVID-19 Deaths Due To POTUS Inaction
    In January 2020, the Trump administration was advised that immediate action was required to stop the spread of COVID-19. According to NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, “there was a lot of pushback” to this advice. President Trump declined to act until March 16th. Experts estimate that, had mitigation measures been implemented one week earlier, 60% of American COVID-19 deaths would have been avoided. (For further reading, click here).

     

  2. Trump is 'livid' at Biden's star-studded inauguration line-up of Lady Gaga, Tom Hanks and Jennifer Lopez: President 'fumes at aides over celebrities' in his final hours in office as stunning Field of Flags is lit up on the National Mall

    Trump 'furious' at Biden's star-studded inauguration lineup as he plans early morning

    Joe Biden's inauguration will feature stars such as Tom Hanks, Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga - to the annoyance of Donald Trump, who failed to attract the big names. The Washington Post reported on Monday that, despite the country being in turmoil since the January 6 lethal riots, Trump found time to worry about the celebrities and performers attending Biden's inauguration on Wednesday. Trump will not be present, and security will be extremely high.

  3. Don the move! Two massive moving trucks are spotted unloading at Mar-a-Lago as the President plans to snub Biden and fly to Florida hours before inauguration 

    Moving trucks arrive at Trump's Mar-a-Lago ahead of Inauguration Day

    Two massive JK Moving Services trucks arrived at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Florida club on Monday morning around 9.30am. The trucks were seen parked in front of the club with workers carrying large boxes into the property. There was heavy security presence surrounding the sprawling property including helicopters and law enforcement patrol boats monitoring the delivery of boxes from afar. On Thursday White House staffers were seen packing up boxes of documents, newspapers, a Lincoln bust and other mementos and bringing them into trucks. Donald Trump plans to fly to Mar-a-Lago on the morning of Inauguration Day, snubbing President-elect Joe Biden by skipping the ceremony. In 2019 Trump changed his residency to Palm Beach using the Mar-a-Lago address, however, he hasn't officially said if he'll move to Mar-a-Lago once his presidency ends.

  4. Biden blocks Trump's bid to lift ban on visitors from the UK, Brazil and Europe and says he will STRENGTHEN travel restrictions - dashing hopes of millions who haven't been able to fly to the US since March

    Trump 'to lift COVID-19 travel restrictions on Europe, UK and Brazil'

    Officials had told Reuters the outgoing president, set to leave office Wednesday, had planned to remove the current restrictions starting on January 26. But just 90 minutes later the president elect's press secretary Jen Psaki had tweeted: 'With the pandemic worsening, and more contagious variants emerging around the world, this is not the time to be lifting restrictions on international travel. 'On the advice of our medical team, the Administration does not intend to lift these restrictions on 1/26. In fact, we plan to strengthen public health measures around international travel in order to further mitigate the spread of COVID-19.' The current restrictions bar nearly all non-U.S. citizens who have been in Brazil, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the 26 countries of the Schengen area in Europe that allow travel across open borders within the last 14 days. Restrictions on travelers from Europe have been in place since mid-March; the Brazilian entry ban was imposed in May. The Trump administration imposed the bans in a bid to contain the coronavirus pandemic. Under Trump's plan the restrictions had been set to end the same day that new COVID-19 test requirements take effect requiring all international visitors to have a negative result.

    okay, so now I'm gonna tell ya what is gonna happen, the msm will adore and worship the sleepy guy for a year maybe two, then the economy deteriorates and in the short term the democrats will hide behind the pandemic to buffer themselves...

    meanwhile kamala harris, the congressional black caucus and numerous black civil rights dinosaurs and holdovers will ONCE AGAIN begin saying that what is needed for Black America is better public education...

    the exact same worthless and useless HS the democrat party has been peddling since the vietnam war era.

    but what will help to make it all palatable to the democrats and black civil rights leaders is the thought of the supreme irony of white liberal democrats HELPING to bring White America to it's knees!

    it is both sick and diseased.

    BUT, is there an actual connection between the people on the tour and the insurrectionists?  Rep. Cohen says he does not know.

    Hopefully they can check CCT footage in the building the day of the 'tour' and try to identify these people.  If they were ringleaders of January 6 that might be doable.

    That aside, I wouldn't trust that nutter to bring a gun to work.   She flipped right out when she was speaking the other day.

  8. Attorney Roberta Kaplan is about to make Trump’s life extremely difficult

    On the other side of Donald Trump’s turbulent presidency, the lawyers are waiting.

    Leaving aside his Senate impeachment trial, mounting government investigations include a civil probe by New York Attorney General Letitia James, a criminal probe by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., and a federal probe by acting U.S. Attorney for D.C. Michael Sherwin that may include Trump’s role in the catastrophic storming of the U.S. Capitol this month.

    But already pending for the soon-to-be South Florida retiree is a trio of lawsuits that allege defamation, fraud and more fraud — all of which are helmed by one attorney.

    Roberta Kaplan’s clients include writer E. Jean Carroll, who filed a defamation case after Trump claimed she was “totally lying” about her allegation that he raped her a quarter-century ago in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room, and niece Mary L. Trump, who claims that Trump and two of his siblings deprived her of an inheritance worth millions.

    “I became the go-to person to sue the president,” says Kaplan, 54, with considerable relish.

    She is in many ways the ideal legal adversary to take on Trump. Kaplan is a brash and original strategist, with neither a gift for patience nor silence, a crusader for underdogs who has won almost every legal accolade imaginable. Kaplan, says New York Democratic Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo in an email, “has been indispensable in the fight against the cancer of hate and division that Trump spent four years exacerbating.”

    Before the presidency, Trump was often as engaged in legal tussles as he was in real estate, suing and threatening to sue his way out of financial trouble. With a return to private life, “his terror is that he will no longer be protected by the office and will have to deal with these lawsuits,” says his niece. Trump faces the prospect of spending considerable time in the role of defendant. Kaplan says she will seek to depose him in all three cases. Trump’s lawyers did not respond to requests for comment on the cases in this story.

    .....

    In Kaplan’s third Trump case, she represents participants in ACN, a multilevel marketing company promoted on “The Celebrity Apprentice.” They’re suing not ACN, but the former host and his three oldest children, accusing them of endorsing the company as a promising business opportunity.

    While Trump billed himself as a populist, Kaplan perceived a consistent disconnect in how Trump University and other enterprises allegedly took advantage of the very people whose interests he claimed to champion.

    “Because of his prominence, he marketed his ability to convince unsophisticated, very poor Americans to invest,” says Kaplan, who was indignant that Trump “would exploit people like this to line your own pockets.”

    (In a Business Insider story, a Trump organization spokesperson responded to the suit by saying, “Before enrolling with ACN, every participant acknowledged in writing that they are ‘not guaranteed any income.’ ” In that story, ACN co-founder Robert Stevanovski claimed the plaintiffs were told that Trump was getting paid to endorse the company. “I think it’s politically motivated that they’re going to sue him and the family and not us,” he said.)

    China doesn't like Canada because they arrested that Chinese executive, so where will all that oil go? They should have supported Trump.

    Canada has detained the Chinese Executive on house arrest at the behest of the American Justice Department pending extradition to the U.S. which China is fighting.   Canada has no case against the lady.   In retaliation China has held two innocent Canadians in prison for two years now.  That's what we get for being good allies to the United States.  Nothing and on top of that criticism from ignorant low lifes.

  14. Trump will fly out of DC at '8am Wednesday' after 'issuing 100 pardons and commutations to white-collar criminals, high-profile rappers and a jailed eye doctor' on his final full day in office 

    Trump will leave the White House at '8am Wednesday' - the morning of Biden's inauguration

    Donald Trump is due to hold a farewell ceremony at Joint Base Andrews, in Maryland, before his departure from the nation's capital on the morning of Joe Biden's inauguration. White House aides have reportedly sent out invitations for the event, with guests instructed to arrive between 6am and 7:15am. Specific details regarding the ceremony are said to still be under consideration, but it may include a color guard and 21-gun salute. For his final full day in office on Tuesday, Trump is also reportedly gearing up to issue around 100 pardons and commutations. A rumored recipient of one of the clemency actions is said to be Dr. Salomon Melgen (top right), a prominent eye doctor from Palm Beach who is in prison after being convicted on dozens of counts of health care fraud. So far, Trump has reportedly made no plans to pardon himself or his children, CNN reported. It is also not known whether indicted aide Steve Bannon will be on the list.

    Lindsey Graham blames PELOSI for Capitol riot because 'she didn't provide enough security' as he warns convicting Trump in senate impeachment trial 'would destroy the Republican Party' 

    Lindsey Graham suggested Sunday Nancy Pelosi is to blame for thousands of pro-Trump protesters breaching the Capitol earlier this month, claiming it is the House Speaker's job to provide Capitol security. 'To see people come and take over the Capitol - the House and the Senate - beat officers, defile the seat of government. How in the hell could that happen? Where was Nancy Pelosi? It's her job to provide Capitol security,' the South Carolina Republican, and staunch ally of President Donald Trump said during an interview on 'Sunday Morning Futures.' He added: 'We'll get to the bottom of that.'
