Why Melania Trump’s vanishing act matters – NBC News

First and foremost, I wish the first lady a quick and complete recovery. Her health is the most important issue here.

The premise of this article is that without the first lady the president is losing an important component in his diplomatic encounters. I believe her charm and poise and elegance does lens something to this presidency. Unfortunately all of her Poise does not make up for the incoherent and radical foreign policy of this Administration.

Watching Canada’s prime minister Justin Trudeau yesterday on Meet the Press was heartbreaking. He explained how without question the Canadiens have fought side-by-side with the Americans and now America has declared a trade war on Canada. There is absolutely no basis for this trade War and yet this president, acting like an orangutan, is pounding his chest at our allies.

Like a bully, he is hitting first. I believe that this stems from the last G20 where he was pretty much left alone by the other foreign leaders. I’m sure this is fury gated him. He believes himself to be the absolute ruler of United States. We are not a monarchy and respect is earned in life, business and especially world politics.

The numbers don’t at up for him issuing these Terrace on our allies. Saying that he sees too many Mercedes parts on 5th Avenue makes absolutely no sense. I love Cadillacs. Cadillac is working very hard at becoming a world class luxury car manufacturer. The CT-6 is it’s first act in doing so. That being said, Mercedes, VW, Audi, BMW, Lexus and I can go on and on all have manufacturing facilities in the United States. Banning all foreign cars from entering the United States will do very little to stem the number of Foreign brands being sold in United States eyes they are being made here. So once again he is only doing this for his base. It’s pointless and isn’t that what this whole Administration has been about.

Email snafu reveals White House outreach to Obama and Clinton alumni – POLITICO

First we have a President who doesn’t want to use security protocols on his phones and refuses to tweet on anything that has any kind of security on it. He says it’s too inconvenient.

And now the irony of ironies, White House emails coming out. An email scandal involving Trump? Oh you must mean Hillary Clinton? Know it is Trump, and Karma is truly something else.

Rudy Giuliani Admits White House Is Trying To Discredit Russia Investigation – HuffPost

Discrediting the special counsel is all there is left for this corrupt and decrepit Administration and its supporters.

The special counsel has nothing to gain from this and must remain quiet because he’s a professional and so are all the fine men and women were working with him. Donald Trump says he Mourns the beautiful young lives that have been hurt by this probe. Donald Trump you caused this probe, you colluded with the Russians to win an election because you are a power-hungry oligarch to be.

We the people of the United States will not let you become an oligarch and the best that you can hope for is a short prison sentence for your son Don Jr and you and your vice president, who was in charge of the transition, leaving in disgrace.

Trump ‘morally unfit to be president,’ Comey says in TV interview – NBC News

I’ll be 64 the end of April and I remember vividly how Watergate went down. As much as I may not have agreed with Richard Nixon’s policies he was nowhere close to being as corrupt an individual has a human being has the current occupant of the White House. When James Comey who had much to do with putting him in the White House says that Trump should not be in the White House in rings true to 3/4 of the American people. The other quarter are just plain crazy or so rich that all they care about is counting how many dollars more they have in their pockets. They don’t care about our country but I do and this man needs to be removed from office.

My one worry is that his vice president is just as much in the muck as he is which means that Paul Ryan would be next in line to be president. And a Paul Ryan presidency would be the end of us all.

New book (by Trump supporter) alleges Kellyanne Conway is the ‘number one leaker’ in Trump White House – CNN

This has not been a good week for Kellyanne Conway. Although seen as the number one Trump cheerleader Kellyanne Conway has had a few mishaps which may make her job in the White House less secure. First let’s talk about her husband. George Conway. He has been tweeting away and not very favorably towards the President. He’s actually had to delete tweets. I’ve deleted tweets because after tweeting them I realized that they were inappropriate. In this case, although I have no inside knowledge, it looks like someone was coerced into deleting his tweets. I believe that’s a violation of the First Amendment which is above the second amendment by the way.

Now this Trump supporter who says that Trump is one of the greatest president that ever existed is saying that Kellyanne Conway is the number one liquor in the White House. He says that the economy is Trump’s best accomplishment. The man has been in the White House less than a year and the economy he has his merely a wave that he’s riding thanks to President Obama. A president who is so narcissistic that he hates other people being in the news in his administration is going to start wondering if Kellyanne Conway is becoming more important than him, and he hates that. Further, I think that the president is the number one leaker in the White House. His weekend trips to the so-called Southern White House are very telling, and by the way I think he calls it the southern White House and not the winter White House because the last president who called the winter White House was President Nixon, and he was impeached and resigned in disgrace.. Trump is well known to go around the club talking to the people that spent $250,000 a year for membership and exorbitant prices for the food and he tell them things. He needs to do this because he wants to show that he is relevant. And that’s so sad for someone who is ostensibly the leader of the Free World.

As I said before, whenever someone that I disliked left the White House they were replaced with someone I dislike more or was just incompetent for the job. In either case the country is not winning, I thought we would be tired of winning by now.

White House investigating $500 million in loans to Kushner’s family business – Wall Street Journal

It’s The Fall of the House of Kushner.

You don’t have meetings with foreign governments and then ask them in these meetings as a representative the United States of America’s government for loans. End of discussion. That’s when you go to jail.

Jared and Ivanka have used the White House in a way that no other family member has ever used the white house before. They are using it to enrich themselves and every way shape and form. Whether it be Ivanka meeting with the Chinese foreign minister and all of a sudden having business deals that all of a sudden appeared after her meeting. Jared Kushner with his building on six six six Fifth Avenue that has a 1.2 billion dollar mortgage due in less than 9 months is desperate for cash so he goes asking government while representing the United States of America. For that both of them should go to jail. These are not federal crimes these are also State crimes so Daddy cannot pardon them.

I don’t remember ever posting an article from The Wall Street Journal before and I think this is the beginning of the dismantling of this putrid White House. Rupert Murdoch once was a great supporter of trump and now he is doing this. The rats are jumping off the sinking ship.

Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal are talking to one reporter: Anderson Cooper – The Washington Post

Talk about “Must See TV”! Tonight on CNN and Sunday on CBS Anderson Cooper is going to make the private residence of the White House not a fun place to be. I know this is all very salacious but he is the president and he did it allegedly right after marrying his wife and her having their baby. That’s reptilian.

Anderson Cooper knows how to ask questions and get right to your soul so I know that this is going to be fascinating to watch.
