So Donald does an interview with NYT. The same NYT that he is constantly calling fake news! This further proves how dense his 36% base is.

How smart is anyone's base really? Most smart people go to work and take care of their families.

They rarely have time to trash neighborhoods in liberal rage or defend civil war "heroes" monuments with torches.

Would that be anything like when President Obama would let Bill O'Reilly interview him? That same O'Reilly from that same network he used to bitch and moan about all the time?

However, if I look or acted like any of the people I mentioned previously this is one case I will accept the shackles.

Love your TDS reference.

Once apon a time human being could handle hearing an opposing idea without acting like lunatics.

Some even listened and possibly were even persuaded.

How a yearn for those days again. I am only 40 so I had to read about them in books.

I hope Ben sasse can stay in for a bit, he Rand, Lee, and others are trying to create an actual dialogue about the actual debates.

The other side well they have tulsi, and..the other two I had hopes for well, ..looks like the lobbyists got to them.

I guess it would be similar. However, Obama didn't call every piece of negative media coverage as "fake news" and delegitimize actual reporting that contains factual data. I'm not saying that reporters don't spin the facts to better present their point of view. All of the media outlets are guilty of this.

I agree. Trump is a huge snowflake when it comes to any criticism at all.

Obama was not even close in the whining realm about the media. Yeah they suck. Everyone knows.

When the president starts weaponizing distrust people should pay attention. Especially conservatives. This is how fascism begins, when reporters start going to jail or get body slammed by candidates.

So, what has Mad Dog been up to lately?

Mad Dog in a recent NYT interview hinted — rather strongly, I might add — at there being another Saturday Night Massacre.

Hmmm, I recently questioned whether Mad Dog should be tethered to a collar and leash to keep Mad Dog under control. It looks like Mad Dog needs to be tossed into a rubber room.



I'm starting to think you might have some issues........lol What makes this post any different than you dog collar and leash post? Are you going to do a nurtured post next?

Its going to be a long 8 years for you it seems...

The problem is trumps own words though. Even of he is not in legal trouble for saying a particular phrase the sum of the whole is getting large enough to show a pattern of obstruction like behaviour. It certainly in his own words seems like he wants the investigation stopped.

Now you're falling into the trap of basing opinions on perception rather than hard evidence--but honestly, if you were under any investigation, whether guilty or innocent, wouldn't you want the investigation to stop? It's just as likely that there's 'no there there' and he's tired of being under a media-driven microscope that he knows or assumes will find nothing. Remember, "obstruction-like behavior" is not tantamount to obstruction of justice, the same as 'casing' a jewelry store is not the same thing as larceny.


Your a legal person you have to understand this is not an appropriate path for a president to take, if he were to make good on his words he would certainly enter a viable obstruction prosecution. May not be prosecuted but the framework would be there.

Evidence supersedes perception, though--many people suspected of improprieties can act guilty as hell, but in reality be completely innocent. Hell, that's happened to me before, and I was so nervous for being accused of something that I didn't do that I appeared to be lying and making up stories, simply because I don't do well under pressure in situations like that.


That said, I will concede that he says some really dumb things, but whether or not they're criminal is another matter altogether, because again, evidence matters. But if he is guilty, I sure do hope that he is pursued appropriately by the judicial system.

And please never misunderstand my impression of Trump--I see zero presidential behavior in him, but that doesn't mean that he can't do the job or that he's committing improprieties.


Personally I read the wsj, national review, and plenty of other conservative and libertarian publications who also want trump to stop talking.

I think that it's safe to say that the majority of people wish that he would quit talking--he says crude, stupid things and his voice is as jarring as Hillary's.

Zero respect for the man or office might make one attack back don't you think?

Lol really? Obama got a free ride from the media, he was their chosen little darling...You don't think that plays into it all. Obama screwed up left and right, became a lame duck for his second four years and the media rubbed his back saying "its all right" geez give me a break.

Whatever... the only fascists we have seen lately is from the radical left...

Whew OK. I feel better knowing this. Conservatives need to speak up because the libreak mainstream is so upset they aren't even making much sense.

I was pretty careful with my words. You have to understand these are political investigations as well as legal. It is completely possible trump will commit obstruction for no crime committed. He can obstruct justice even in innocence, and the president has a different job than an average person.

If he removes say Jeff sessions, and continues down the line until someone will remove Mueller he would be in obstruction territory.

So what I am saying is if he were to follow through with these soft threats he would be creating a situation where he could be brought up for obstruction charges even if he committed no Russian crimes.

I honestly think this is highly possible if he hasn't learned to shut his mouth at this point.

On your other points. I have found zero legislation I agree with that trump is putting forward. Including taxes, budget, immigration, etc. If you could find some that are worth exploring pleases send them by message or post, I would like some optimism quite frankly.

I have zero respect for Donald Trump myself. I do respect the office but he ran as a demagogue he doesn't get to whine when he gets it back.

I disagree both the left and right have fascist policy.

Let's take Jeff sessions civil asset seizure, his mandatory min ideas....

The Healthcare bill proposed by the GOP etc...

And the Trump family's constant talk about Russian adoption makes me believe that they're using the word adoption as a synonym for money laundering.

And we know Mad Dog Trump loves money above all else. Well, maybe not as much as destruction.



Where do you get all this crap from? Money laundering? Destruction? Seriously?

Trump is many things but you're just inventing stuff in your head...

Funny because this post is an echo of one a few before it and an echo that nobody should ever start a negative trump thread. Go outside, take a pill, get a hobby.

Money laundering is Trump's Achilles Heel! "Adoption" is their code word.
