apparently Mr Trumps uses extortion as a negotiating stratagem i.e. if the Dems do not accept his plan he will kill ACA

Tayyip Erdogan received a congratulatory call from President Trump for solidifying his rule as a dictator who imprisons journalists, silences the opposition, and rigs elections. You know Trump is just jealous. smile

Sean "Spicey" Spicer, WH Media Spokesman, doesn’t think Trump will draw any red lines on North Korea, but we Ranters can think of a pretty clearly defined one along the 38th parallel.

The administration is looking for a major win. Let me re-interpret that as they are looking for sacrificial lambs i.e. the American people, to satisfy their idiot-ology.

There is noting in the Republican plan now apparently endorsed by Mr Trump which will achieve any of the goals they tout except save some money.

I wish just one interviewer would ask the right questions of these folks and when they do not respond, answer the question for them, and then when they object ask the polar question as which point everyone should know they are lying. If these clowns want to sell maybes, then maybe we should leave the answers to the Russians.

Donald Trump signed an Executive Order today calling for a "review" of national monuments designated by the last three previous presidents

(G.W. Bush included, for "balance," wink-wink)

You know that Christopher Street monument that BAMZ!!! designated of Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of gay resistance, is target numero uno. It's my opinion that this "review" main goal is to delist monuments. Hmm

I wonder if Presidents can delist national monuments by executive order once they are declared. Doesn't monument making go through Congress, so wouldn't they have to pass specific legislation to make someplace no longer a monument?

Is there any reason Congress would want to do that? It seems like it would just piss a lot of people off, for no real gain.

I was looking at the recent opinion surveys and realized something.... Trump's share of the vote dropped about 9% points since the election. Either that, or A LOT of Trump voters are lying about having once voted for him....

I always thought there was a sizeable group of soft votes for him ...

when he said wall and ban, I thought it clear he had a solid group of bigots but not necessarily would it be all his support ... i mean there is a kind of appeal to nationalism and populism among the ignorant and of course he had the hard core partisan Republican voter. There was a reason he couldn't break through 40. I suspect as much as 20% of his voter support was soft.
