Can this man be stopped?

Given the news yesterday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating President Trump for possible obstruction of justice, who’s taking bets on how many days it will be before Trump fires Mueller? There have been trial balloons from Trump’s favorite Newsmax publisher on The NewsHour, from Newt Gingrich (is it coincidental that Gingrich has a …

Trumped again

The United Kingdom has been the closest ally the United States has had since the beginning of the 20th century, at least. Yet our idiot President has so offended the citizens of that nation that he’s reconsidering a planned visit in light of potential protests following him around while there. Mr. Trump is deeply unpopular …

(Use Google Translate.) …

Emoluments, you say?

This may not quite be bribery. It is certainly hypocrisy. Also, for a family so concerned with their name and brand, shouldn’t they realize how it would look for Ivanka and her old man announcing this at the same time he’s signing an arms deal with the country which provided 19 of the 20 perpetrators …
