Lets pretend that its 2010. Obama has been in office for one year. During that time, hes spent 1/3 of it golfing, wasting millions of taxpayer dollars. He said he supports Chinas new president-for-life, and thinks we should try that here. He expresses admiration for Kim Jong Un and wishes the US people loved him the way North Koreas people love Kim Jong Un. Hes also under investigation for conspiring with Russia to interfere in his election for his benefit, with many members of his administration being arrested. Because of this, he publicly states that he has the right to pardon himself. It also comes to light that he paid off a porn star that he had an affair with, and has been accused of harassment by twenty women, including women who were underage at the time. He had to settle a fraud lawsuit immediately before taking office. What would you think of him?
The right already think Obama was a dictator, despite his having done exactly nothing unilaterally. Imagine if he actually acted as much like a dictator that Trump has. Theres no way the right would have accepted that. Yet Trump gets a pass, simply because hes a Republican. Why?
In guilty plea, American political consultant agreed he steered an illegal foreign donation to Donald Trump's inauguration W. Sam Patten, who pleaded guilty Friday to failing to register as a foreign lobbyist, told prosecutors that he arranged for a straw donor to give $50,000 to Trump's inauguration in place of a Ukrainian businessman who was legally barred from contributing to the event.
TOP STORIES In an anonymous Op-Ed, a senior Trump administration official says he and others are working to frustrate the president?s ?misguided impulses.??
Yep...a source who won't give his/her name. I call that a coward.
Absolutely agree. A gutless coward.
However, just for the sake of discussion lets assume there some level of credibility. What that tells me is that the political establishment that Trump campaigned against is not going to die easily and will do ANYTHING to keep their power. Further, that tells me that Trump has the political establishment running scared. They are afraid of more voter backlash against the establishment politician.
Emp is on to something. If trump hadn?t been elected people like Manafort, Gates, Alex van der Zwaan, Flynn, Papadopoulos, Kushner, Junior, Stone, Bannon, Sessions, Carter Page, Wilbur Ross, JD Gordon, Tom Price, Steve Wynn, Rob Porter, Rinat Akmetshin, Felix Sater, Michael Cohen, etc., etc. would have never been exposed. It is the one promise Trump has kept with the Democrats...he is draining the swamp!
