Apparently, Romney. But that's about it. The other 98% of the Senate Republicans have opted to go down with the Titanic.

Buh bye!

I suspect they might surface after Trump. The problem with that one is the 'after' part. I have now read a couple of articles on what might happen when he doesn't go and they actually seem likely. What really bothers me is who he may have in his pocket. He just got the army officer fired from the White House but that, apparently, was not enough. The current guy in charge of the armed forces said he would protect the guy fired but now, again apparently, Trump has somebody in the army to go after the army guy he forced out of the White House. This means he has a todie with power in the army which may mean he has more than one of them there. This tends to add to my already concern.

Trump may be an ignoramus, but he is not dumb but crafty, sneaky, and seems to win a lot more than he should.

You have finally said something I agree with. It’s been awhile.

The left has been sounding the slay about this guy but the media and liberal classes have indulged in viewing him as a buffoon (who remembers 2016 coverage?). Or a rissian tool (liberals have gone all in on the spook stories).

Nice to see more people take the fascist threat seriously. Doubt they’ll stop thwarting the candidate that has the best polls against Trump for months now.

Naw. They’ll give him his war budgets, stand and applaud fascist cia backed despots like Juan Guaidó openly in Congress. On the important stuff the Democratic Party is a capon.

But yeah. He’s got cleverness. Without a doubt.

Interesting campaign strategy:

Trump Cuts Federal Pay Raise

Trump boasts non-stop about how great the economy is doing. And yet:

Quote:
Trump is justifying ordering the cut on the grounds that the country is in the midst of a “national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare,” which the White House says authorizes the president to “implement alternative plans for pay adjustments.”
So which is it? The best economy in the history of economies or a national economic emergency? Either way, somebody’s lying.

He's decided to punish all Federal employees, maybe assuming none of them were going to vote for him. Well, now they won't!

Donald Trump might be called a lot of things.

He IS a lot of things.

You can preface them all with "cheapskate".

He's the third generation "Don" of a White Crime Family. Trump knows the art of the deal...when it comes to dirty dealing and backstabbing.

Acting like an idiot is part of the con...

What if he's autistic? An Aspy. An idiot savant of sorts and being a dictator is what he's a genius at.....

My own suspicion is that he has been made aware that his spendthrift ways is building up a debt that can take everything down. So, he continues to claim that his tax cuts (a multi trillion dollar giveaway to to upper 5% and would pay for itself - a standard Republican claim that never happens and causes problems eventually) so now we have him trying to take care of it by destroying things like medicare, medicaid, social security, etc. His plans, with tariffs, which he claims the other countries pay into America, is another little effort to fix the debt. he has to support the military because he considers it HIS military and it will defend him if the natives get pushy. I actually believe that! I also believes that he actually believes that!

There have been any number of suggestions that he lives in a diffent reality. I believe that is the case. I also believe the man is insane as I do about those who are determined to support him no matter what. Not out of fear but out of love for their God, Donald the Great. That, incidentally scares the sh*t out of me! I am awaiting the time he goes with some trepidation. I am not convinced that is going to be easy to accomplish.

I don't even know what the feck he's spending it on! Near as I can tell he's slashing revenues and funneling billions to billionaires without accomplishing a single thing. Basically just looting the treasury.

It's how he's always done business.

Of course he's looting the Treasury.
That's what despotic tyrants always do! Ferdinand Marcos finally agreed to leave, but not before he emptied the banks.
Saddam looted his banks on the way out...Hitler stashed so much Nazi gold that it's still being found today.

It's a time honored tradition.

It really does seem like he's setting things up to take a powder between November and January. I wonder how all the trumptards are going to feel when he moves to Argentina.
