Trump's Biggest Whoppers

Adam Schiff Lists All the Ways He Says Trump Campaign Colluded With Russia,

........Schiff went on: “You might think it’s OK that he took that meeting. You might think it’s OK that Paul Manafort, the campaign chair, someone with great experience at running campaigns, took that meeting. You might think it’s OK that the president’s son-in-law also took that meeting. You might think it’s OK that they concealed it from the public.

"You might think it’s OK that their only disappointment from that meeting was that the dirt they received on Hillary Clinton wasn’t better. You might think it’s OK that when it was discovered, a year later, they then lied about that meeting and said that it was about adoptions. You might think that it’s OK that it was reported that the president helped dictate that lie.

You might think that’s OK. I don’t...

.....But I do not think that conduct, criminal or not, is OK. And the day we do, think that's OK, is the day we look back and say that is the day that America lost its way."

That's funny,  but there isn't any need for Mitch to work with the Trump Admin to draft a healthcare 'reform' bill since the Dems control the House.   So Trump should work with his favorite Dem,  Pelosi.   If Pelosi and her team and the Trump admin can agree on a bill (which is highly unlikely),  then Mitch should just advise GOP Senators to support it.

Thus this entire stunt by Trump is folly:  Trump doesn't want any reform to become law;  he just wants to pretend he does so when it fails,  he can blame in on the Dems and use that against them in 2020.

The Democrats won't agree on a new healthcare bill if government don't have complete totalitarian control over it - people themselves has no choice.  This was the main sticking point with the ACA.

 

It also has to be Affordable - which it lacked.  Should had been labeled the UCA (Unaffordable Care Act

Neither party has 'one' consistent view of the type of reforms that are required.   Yea,  many Dems are calling for a total government run system,  but I haven't heard that is the view of Pelosi (e.g. has she said she is for Medicare for All?).

Anyhow,  since there are so many different views WITHIN each party and vast differences BETWEEN the parties (like with Immigration reform),   the odds a compromise bill can be passed are zero.

The share of Americans not having sex has reached a record high
The share of adults reporting no sex in the past year has risen to its highest level in three decades of polling.
By Christopher Ingraham  Read more »

At least Trump is doing his patriotic duty by compensating for this - whenever he meets an adult film actress or former Playmate. As the President proudly likes to say - Make America!

JUST IN: Barr says Mueller "is assisting" DOJ in process of making redactions to the report

—including grand jury material and "information that would unduly infringe on the...reputational interests of peripheral third parties."

No plans to submit to White House prior to release.

==============================

Natasha BertrandVerified account @NatashaBertrand 52m52 minutes ago

 

Barr's redaction of "information that would unduly infringe on the...reputational interests of peripheral third parties" may prompt some arguments.

@RepSwalwell just said on @MSNBC that he doesn't consider Trump Jr. or Jared Kushner, for example, to be "peripheral third parties."

Trump on Friday threatened to close the U.S-Mexico border next week if Mexico does not stop undocumented immigrants from coming into the United States.

 

"If Mexico doesn’t immediately stop ALL illegal immigration coming into the United States throug [sic] our Southern Border, I will be CLOSING...the Border, or large sections of the Border, next week," the president wrote in a series of tweets. .......

McConnell to Trump: Health care’s all yours

The Senate majority leader signaled in an interview that he’s more interested in taking on Democrats than jumping into a divisive debate within his own party.

 

".....While the GOP leader has endorsed efforts to protect pre-existing conditions, McConnell told his caucus on Wednesday he will stick to a message of asking the administration for a plan and focusing on making Democratic measures unpopular, according to attendees.

Soon after, Senate Republicans from across the caucus adopted a similar mantra:

Let’s see what the White House proposes.........

Poll: After Barr Letter, Overwhelming Majority Wants Full Mueller Report Released

 

.....

Americans: The Barr letter is not enough

Overall, three-quarters said the full Mueller report should be made public. That included a majority of Republicans (54 percent). Just 18 percent overall said Barr's summary is enough...

Two-thirds (66 percent) also said they want Mueller to testify before Congress, and 64 percent said the same for Barr.

Trump not in the clear with the public.....

Donald Trump’s Talent for Turning Wins into Losses

Like a gambler who can’t get up from the table, Trump’s life has been defined by manic overreaching whenever he feels he’s on top.

 

".......Barely more than a day after triumphantly (and incorrectly) blazoning his “Total EXONERATION,” Trump abruptly seized upon a Justice Department filing to pledge his intention to obliterate Obamacare. Bent on delivering on a campaign promise, Trump couldn’t resist the urge to try to parlay one win into an even larger one, no matter how improbable the odds.

He ignored the advice of top staff and important allies, who pointed out that neither he nor his party had anything to offer as a replacement and that this almost certainly would work to the advantage of Democrats.

While this looked to pundits and even fellow Republicans like a baffling, self-defeating stroke, it was consistent, actually, with Trump’s lifelong patterns...........

 

He is this way, say people who know him well, because of his unshakable self-assurance and nerve but also his insatiable appetite for attention and conflict.

“The discomfort he feels in the moment of peace that follows a victory is so intense that he will do whatever it takes to find new fights,”.............

 

“The Republican Party will soon be known as the party of health care,” he insisted. “You watch.”

Republicans on the Hill shook their heads. “I want nothing to do with this,” a senator said. A senior aide likened the maneuver to “punching yourself in the face repeatedly.”

To those, though, who have watched him and known him longer than the insiders in Washington, this is par for the course for Trump. His vengeful, punitive, zero-sum worldview, they believe, dictates that a win alone is never enough; somebody else has to take the loss, and feel it......

(Trump) wants not only to topple his enemies but to strike back hard. “Victory defined by obliteration,” he said.

“He is not interested in pleasures such as art and food and friendship, and he doesn’t seem to be motivated by love or creative impulses.

The one exception is his drive to create conflict, which brings him the attention of others,”.........

It'll make money for all the Mexicans hawking Churros, tamales, tacos, curios, trinkets, etc. to all those stuck waiting for the border to reopen.  Trump continues to be more and more unhinged.  So much for the rush of "Complete Exoneration!" just a couple of days ago.  Either the idiot is realizing what we all know about that being a lie, and that the report will be much more damaging.  Or, he is, on top of all his clinical disorders, also bipolar.  So U.S. residents near the Canadian border, get your inexpensive meds before shuts that one also.

Which reminds me:

I'm starting to see bumper stickers in Northeast Kansas that say "Impeach"--

In between the two syllables is an orange peach head of trump.

I wonder if anybody else has seen them?
