Signs your president might be a Mean Girl: Gossips, uses verbal put-downs of others, bullying, backstabbing, and using others to get ahead.

Also, the president Mean Girl hates when others put-down members of his clique such as when Bolton dished Kim Jung Il or when media accuses the president of siding with known awful people like Vlad Putin.

...and let's be real - how many times has Trump been accused of being a 12 year old? Hmm

Six Signs of Mean Girls

The dangers of cliques

Why Mean Girls tend to be 12 years old

You know you have a Mean Girl for President when the President is polling -14 points less than his assumed political opponent, and the POTUS asks for a "favor" that the Ukrainian government investigate the political opponent and "get to the bottom" of a rumor about the political opponent that the POTUS heard.

Hmm

The President has a real problem: The Pentagon still has a huge number of people throughout the ranks who see Russia as the enemy, and insist on stuff like sending Ukraine antitank rockets. The Russian invasion of Ukraine and occupation of Crimea is exactly what they have always feared and really is their reason for existence since 1945. (IE. NATO)

Being a Russian asset, Trump wants to blame the 2016 election interference on Ukraine in spite of all that nasty evidence that shows exactly where it really came from. When you think about it, the Republican Party was the natural place for Russia to gain influence: Democrats tend to have principles, but Republicans are all about the money. Putin and the gang have lots of money, thanks to their Kleptocracy, but when they tried to invest it in the US (the safest place in the world) suddenly it got sanctioned because of some of their stupider moves. (You know, like poisoning people and invading neighbors.) So what they want even more than lessening the US's position in world politics, is to get those sanctions lifted.

It's always about the money...

Yes, after the Russians started being blocked in parking their money in the US due to sanctions, they found a back-door to the park their money in the US - the GOP via the NRA.

The GOP then blocked a FTC probe of the NRA's Russia money and Trump. Enter Mitch McConnell. Hmm
