Yeah Trump gives people so much to scandal about it's dizzying almost.

Well, it's been one scandal after another, hasn't it?

From Cabinet members being forced to resign for corruption, to lawsuits one right after the other, to the Whistleblower debacle at the VA, it just goes on and on.

But the base is satisfied because they have their extra $75 in their pockets every two weeks, and gosh, isn't it nice to freely spew those bigoted remarks!

I encourage all to read Trump's remarks from MS cult rally last night.

He was riding the rails of the Crazy Train.

He called Thursday's House vote "an attack on democracy."

Perhaps Trump is so stupid that he would fail to recognize the Democratic process. 

I doubt he has ever taken a Civics course.

He is also relying on the old excuse: I knew people were listening, would I say something wrong?

Yes.

And we know he has made lots of gaffes on the phone with world leaders because people who listen in on those calls, have talked about it.

Can't recall if it was the Times or WaPo, that had a story about those scary phone calls a few weeks back.

The old man is coming across as desparate, as he knows he will be impeached.

Here's an interesting view-point on the Trump and his Administration. . . 

Ever watch Dancing with the Stars (DWTS)??

Amy and I have been watching DWTS since it started. We love the show. We love to dance (although I'm not really good at it).  DWTS is a reality show where "stars" pair up with real professional dancers and compete with each other. Each "star", coupled with the professional dancer, are judged to the quality of the dance routine. Each week, one "star" and his or her professional dancer are voted off the show. People who watch the show can call in and VOTE for their favorite star. These telephoned or texted votes weigh heavily on which star and his or her professional dancer gets voted out of the contest. This is in addition to the on-air judge panel, which gives professional comments to each dance routine. The on-air judge panel also has say-so, although limited, to which "star" and his or her professional dancer gets voted off the show each week. In the end, only one star and his or her professional dancer remains, and wins a trophy.

These "stars" that are on each season come from different backgrounds. Some are television stars. Some are movie stars. Some are Broadway (theater) stars. Some are professional athletes. Some are simply well-recognized celebrities that have been in the public eye for one reason or another.

Each "star" may or may not have had formal dance training in their past. The level of dancing ability varies from star to star, season to season. Some are good. Some are noticeably awful. 

Guess which "star" is on DWTS this season?!?

Sean Spicer!!!

Yep!

Here's the thing about DWTS. It show-cases what really great dancing looks like. The professional dancers are wonderfully talented. You want to know what really good dancing looks like?!? Watch DWTS!! With the help of the paired professional dancer, the "stars" on each season usually grow as dancers. Generally, those who don't grow - those who don't improve - get voted out, some quicker than others. Generally, the weakest dancing "stars" are voted off the show by the 3rd or 4th episode within each DWTS season. Generally. But not always.

Sometimes a "favored star" remains on DWTS well into the season. This is despite the fact that they are not really good dancers. How do they remain in the show??? Their fan base continues to vote them in, show after show, week after week. 

So. . . How is Sean Spicer??  Well, Sean is not a dancer. Without a doubt, he has charisma. As Amy might say, "He has that 'Thing'! "; he has that "attractive" star-like quality. Does he dance well?? No. It is terribly obvious that Sean can not dance. Despite his charisma and on-stage charm, Sean struggles to show-case each dance routine to look as it ought to look. Often, Sean dances out of the flow (the beat) of the music. Simply, Sean is not a dancer. But he continues to charge on with his well-liked smile and charisma, and his fan-base obviously LOVE him. Sean's fans keep voting for him, show after show, week after week. So, Sean is still on the show! From the sheer point of judging his dance quality, does Sean deserve to be on at this point of the season?? No. Sean is obviously not a good dancer. 

Last week, Amy and I noticed this "Sean Spicer on DWTS" phenomenon and how it closely represents Trump and his Administration. It's almost a perfect allegory. As Sean continues on DWTS, he clearly demonstrates that he is not a dancer. By all standards of quality dancing, Sean should have been voted off the show weeks ago. As Trump continues on as President of the United States, he CLEARLY demonstrates how he is unfit to be President. By all standards of quality governing (corrupt-free, willfully transparent, etc.), adherence to the United States Constitution, and ensuring that the general welfare of the citizens of this country are protected, Trump should be voted out of office.

Agree Trump should be out of the WH, Ted.

But I really don't care how that happens.

He could be voted out.

He could be removed by the Senate.

He could wake up on morning, suddenly, with some semblance of self-respect, and decide to resign.

The mechanism of removal matters not to me; the old man just needs to GO!

Michael Flynn was acting as an unregistered agent of a foreign country while also acting as incoming administration's National Security Adviser, and then lied to the FBI about it.  Flynn was the one engaging in corrupt behavior and lying about it, Vindman is the one pointing out corrupt acts, not the one committing them.  I'm not sure how you're equating the two.  

Smearing Vindman because he's complying with his legal duty to report overt corruption is not the same engaging corruption.

More on Vindman:

"...The bottom-line is LTC Vindman was a partisan Democrat at least as far back as 2012. So much so, junior officers & soldiers felt uncomfortable around him. This is.."

The American people voted the members of the House and Senate into office to fulfill their Constitutional obligations, one of which is to act as a check on the Executive branch, which according to the Constitution includes impeachment.  I'm not sure how you think complying with the Constitution is also contradicting the Constitution or American citizens.

Right.  

As evidenced by one of the polls I linked to yesterday, most Americans realize this is political and not about protecting the constitution.

Border Patrol and DHS have said a wall would help.  It’s the Democrats not listening.

Smugglers are sawing through new sections of Trump’s border wall

Smuggling gangs in Mexico have repeatedly sawed through new sections of President Trump’s border wall in recent months by using commercially available power tools, opening gaps large enough for people and drug loads to pass through, according to U.S. agents and officials with knowledge of the damage.

The breaches have been made using a popular cordless household tool known as a reciprocating saw that retails at hardware stores for as little as $100. When fitted with specialized blades, the saws can slice through one of the barrier’s steel-and-concrete bollards in a matter of minutes, according to the agents, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the barrier-defeating techniques.

After cutting through the base of a single bollard, smugglers can push the steel out of the way, allowing an adult to fit through the gap....

...   The taxpayer-funded barrier — so far coming with a $10 billion price tag — was a central theme of Trump’s 2016 campaign, and he has made the project a physical symbol of his presidency, touting its construction progress in speeches, ads and tweets. Trump has increasingly boasted to crowds in recent weeks about the superlative properties of the barrier, calling it “virtually impenetrable” and likening the structure to a “Rolls-Royce” that border-crossers cannot get over, under or through...

The same people that perpetuate Spicer's inept dancing also support Trump's lying and inept governing. 

Go figure. 

It's almost like they have no discernment skills.

Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, 😂😂🤣🤣😂

At the end of the article it states quite clearly (and in red print) 

HELP US FIGHT THE LEFT AND KEEP OUR CONSERVATIVE MESSAGE ALIVE

So I am going to guess that it is not a very unbiased publication. Also, how incompetent are your security forces if they allow someone so (according to the article) obviously anti-American to work as the Director for European Affairs for the United States National Security Council?

Have you looked at the twitter page of this Hickman character? His pinned Tweet states;

"A message to all the liberal, race-baiting, hateful Dems & their #FakeNewsMedia propagandists, @realDonaldTrump is NOT a racist, or white supremacist, & neither are his supporters." 

So again really "fair and balanced."

Was there not a segment on Trevor Noah's show or Seth Meyers' show about him touting for votes on right wing talk shows?

Please show where and what crime you think to place.  The "I need a favor" portion of the transcript

"President Zelenskyy: Yes you are absolutely right. Not only 100%, but actually 1000% and I can tell you the following; I did talk to Angela Merkel and I did meet with her I also met and talked with Macron and I told them that they are not doing quite as much as they need to be doing on the issues with the sanctions. They are not enforcing the sanctions. They are not working as much as they should work for Ukraine. It turns out that even though logically, the European Union should be our biggest partner but technically the United States is a much bigger partner than the European Union and I'm very grateful to you for that because the United States is doing quite a lot for Ukraine. Much more than the European Union especially when we are talking about sanctions against the Russian Federation. I would also like to thank you for your great support in the area of defense. We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps specifically we are almost. ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes.
The President: I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike... I guess you have one of your wealthy people... The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you're surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it's very important that you do it if that's possible."

The section you left out: 

Quote

The other thing, There's a lot of talk about Biden's son,. that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you ·can look into it ... It sounds horrible to me.

Zelensky brings up military aid, Trump says "We need a favor though", then lists two components of this favor, he references a debunked conspiracy theory about the DNC server and "the other thing" being an investigation into his main reelection opponent.  

By itself, the call is bad enough, but according to multiple administration officials the coordinated effort to use Ukraine for personal political gain started at least as early as May.
