I remember very well how Republicans attacked Bill Clinton and pushed for his impeachment in the late ‘90s. Clinton very famously received a blowjob from Monica Lewinsky and purjured himself.
I also remember the many attacks against former President Barrack Obama.
Who can forget Donald Trump harassing Obama about his birth certificate?
Who can forget how often Obama was accused of being a agent for Iran?
Some rightwing conspiracy theorists even called him the leader of Isis.
Now fast forward to the present and you will see these same people crying foul because Democrats are holding Trump accountable for his actions. I’m amazed at the hypocrisy of the right-wingers these days. Rightwingers are mostly bible thumping, high moral, Christians that often talk about family values but they continue to make excuses for Trump who has paid off prostitutes and pornstars. What happened to the bible thumping and the good ole Christian values?
Why was Bill Clinton such a horrible person for receiving a blowjob but Trump is excused after being exposed for paying off hookers and pornstars?
At this point, I could make the argument that the Republican party is dead.
The old Christian and family values only apply when a Democrat is in office. They love to tell people how patriotic they are but it seems when a Republican is in the White House, they are more concerned with supporting their President instead supporting their country.
If Obama had done half of the things that Trump has done, these Republicans would have been the first people to demand an investigation and would have yelled loudly for impeachment proceedings to begin.
I don’t mind the fact that they are partisan hypocrites, I just want them to admit it.
Trump gets away collusion as I already expected he would. I’m sure most people knew better than to think justice would be served. Trump is just another rich man that has broken the law and proved that he is above the law.
Politically, Democrats look bad right now. They put all their eggs into this Mueller Report basket and it backfired. Trump outsmarted his enemies once again.
Reading the Mueller Report, it is clear that Russians hacked the 2016 election. The response in the report after damn near every question is “I don’t know or I am not aware of”. The problem is Trump is not proven to be guilty. It’s a matter of common sense. Trump told Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails on national television and they did. Even without the Mueller report, it was clear that Trump had direct involvement with Russia and was seeking to find dirt on Hillary.
I have to give Trump credit, he most definitely beat the Democrats at their own game. Even with the damning evidence that comes from the Mueller Report, Trump’s supporters are unmoved and feel vindicated.
READ THE MULLER REPORT
Trump seems to be upset after Bernie Sanders received cheers at the FOX NEWS Town Hall meeting. Trump seems to be very defensive even tweeting about how many Trump supporters were there but weren’t seen on camera. Bernie Sanders was ambushed by the Fox News hosts but came out looking good as a Presidential candidate even in a hostile environment. Trump has been on a tirade, acting insecure and very much like a child that is jealous of his brother who is getting more attention than he is.
I can understand why Trump is upset. If Bernie is actually able to flip some of Trumps supporters, it could really be bad news for Trump in 2020.
Lou Dobbs accidentally said Trump’s overall approval rating was at 58%.
I’m sure it was a slip-up and maybe Dobbs was actually looking at Trump’s approval rating as far as the economy is concerned. According to polls, Trump is sitting at 58% when polled on the economy.
Trump’s overall approval rating remains in the low to mid 40’s.
Thinking of Trump having an approval rating close to 58% is laughable but what’s even funnier is that Trump did not fact check his buddy, Lou Dobbs. He went on tv and bragged about his rating jumping from 43% to 58%. Amazingly nobody corrected the President and they just let it fly. Lou Dobbs would later admit that he was wrong about the President’s overall approval rating which is in the low 40’s but he quickly reminded his listeners how good Trump’s rating is concerning the economy.
Attorney General Will Barr believes that the FBI spied on Trump’s campaign back in 2016. This is adding fuel to the fire that Trump started when he accused Obama of planting spies. AG William Barr confirmed that he believes what Trump has stated about Obama and the FBI.
"I think spying did occur, yes," AG Barr said
"I'm not suggesting that those rules were violated, but I think it's important to look at that. And I'm not just talking about the FBI necessarily, but intelligence agencies more broadly," Barr said.
"I am not saying that improper surveillance occurred. I'm saying that I am concerned about it and looking into it, that's all," Barr also said.
Barr seemed to be in sync with everything that Trump has been saying about the Russia investigation being a witch hunt. It's odd that he is pushing this narrative of the FBI spying on Trump after Democrats asked for the full Mueller Report. Is this a distraction from the Mueller Report by Trump and the Attorney General?
More on what Barr stated concerning the FBI spying on Trump's campaign:
"I am going to be reviewing both the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during 2016. And a lot of this has already been investigated and a substantial portion of it has been investigated and is being investigated by the office of (inspector general). But one of the things that I want to do is pull together all of the information from the various investigations that have gone on including on the Hill and in the (Justice) Department and see if there are any remaining questions [need] to be addressed."
- Barr said.
I may not agree with everything that Trump does but I have to give him props for helping Alice Johnson. She is the 63 year old great mother that was serving a a life sentence in prison.
Thanks to Trump she was able to be released from prison after Kim Kardashian visited President Trump concerning Alice Johnson's case. Recently, President Trump celebrated the First Step Act.
Russia has been defiant against the U.S. despite the U.S. threatening sanctions. Russia has backed Maduro, while the U.S. recognizes Guaidó as the rightful President. President Trump has told Russia to get out and to stop meddling in Venezuela, after two Russian planes carrying military personnel landed in Caracas.
Back in February, Spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign ministry Maria Zakharova mocked John Bolton, after he threatened those undermining Venezuelen democracy.
Recently she stated the following:
"Of course, we understand what causes American nervousness," Zakharova said. "The planned rapid change of power in Caracas failed. With its self-confidence, Washington only 'set up' those in Latin America and Western Europe who rashly hurried to recognize an impostor whom the people did not elect as the head of Venezuela. Thus, they deprived themselves of space for diplomatic maneuvers."
After two years of investigations, the Mueller report turns out to be nothing.
Republicans will definitely dance in the streets and pop champagne because Trump's been calling the whole thing a witch hunt from the beginning.
Going beyond how Republicans feel, there should be some concern coming from the left.
The Mueller Report ends without any new indictments and that means Trump and Trump Jr are pretty much off the hook. It also means Trump supporters are now going to rally even more behind him.
The lack of evidence against Trump makes the Democrats look weak.
This will add fuel to the fire and make Trump seem to be telling the truth when he called all of his rival news networks "CNN & MSNBC" fake news.
Yes, it's all fake now. Even if it's true and even if he did collude, no one has been able to prove it.
This is a huge victory for Trump and the Republican party and it can really come back to haunt Democrats in the 2020 election.
Trump’s approval rating is slipping in the Midwest according to “The Hill”.
Trump’s approval rating among his supporters in the Midwest appears to be declining, according to a series of Hill-HarrisX polls since July of last year.
In July 47 percent of Trump supporters approved of his job in office. His highest ratings came in October & December peaking at 54 percent.
In February that number slid down to 40 percent of approval and an increase of disapproval reaching up to 60 percent.
“When it gets down to it, the president is going to get reelected or defeated on a state-by-state basis,” Chris Wilson, chief strategist at WPA Intelligence, told Hill.TV’S Krystal Ball on Wednesday.
I swear I feel like I am in the twilight zone sometimes. Conservatives are so damn patriotic when there is a liberal in the White House but as soon as a Republican gets in the office, all that patriotism goes out of the window. Recently, Trump pretty much dismissed the fact that a Washington Post Journalist was murdered in a Saudi Embassy. He pretty much said who cares?
His excuse, Saudi is keeping the oil price down for Americans.
Okay, if this the game you are playing, then fine, no problem, play the oil game!
I'm just trying to find the outrage coming from the right-wingers.
Where is the patriotism?
If Obama had said he's not worried about a Washington Post Journalist that was murdered by the Saudi Government, I swear Republicans would be calling him a traitor and a Muslim sympathizer.
I can see them trying to make a connection to Obama and Saudi. Hell, they may have even said he was born in Saudi. They are stupid enough to believe that.
Funny, Trump has been helped out twice by an ultra-wealthy Saudi Prince when his businesses were struggling. This information comes via The New Yorker in a 2016 article after Trump got into a heated battle with Fox News affiliate Megyn Kelly.
Trump would tweet out a fake photo of Kelly and Saudi Prince Al-Waleed.
Prince Al-Waleed would fire back at Trump with his own message.
“Trump: You base your statements on photo-shopped pics? I bailed you out twice; a 3rd time, maybe?” Prince Al-Waleed
You would think people would naturally call this Orange faced clown out for potentially being under extortion. Nope, not a word and never mentioned by the right-winged, flag hugging, patriots that wanted to see Obama's birth certificate and accused him of being a secret agent of the Muslim terrorist regime.
President Trump agreed to close his personal charity and donate it's assets.
This was an agreement made by Trump and New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood
who sued the charity, claiming it squandered funds on political and business purposes.
Trump's charity was set to dissolve back in 2016 before Underwood sued it.
“ It's a little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump’s business and political interests.” Underwood Claimed.
According to Bloomberg.com, Underwood claims that Trump's children neglected their duties under the law.
“Our petition detailed a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation -- including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more," Underwood said
So finally we may get to see what all of the fuss about. Mueller is set to release key findings in the Russia probe.
Bloomberg News reported early Wednesday that Mueller has been under pressure to either bring more indictments or wrap it up.
This is great in so many ways. Most importantly, we can find out if this was all for naught. We can move on and Im sure there is something in this investigation that will make headlines.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is hoping that Democrats don’t attempt to impeach President Trump, at least not until after the midterms and more information comes out.
In an interview with CBS This Morning, Biden told host Norah O’Donnell that he doesn’t think “there’s a basis for doing that right now,” saying he hopes Democrats don’t initiate impeachment proceedings. Biden called on Democrats to wait until Special Counsel Mueller concludes his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, saying, “I think we should wait until the report comes out.”
This is smart advice being dished out about by former VP Biden to the Democratic party. Attempting to impeach Trump is not as easy as some would love to think. The information that is about to come out should help the Democrats build a case for impeachment.
If they shoot their shot too soon, they might as well prepare for the backlash.
So the Black community is tripping over Kanye going to meet Trump.
I don't agree with a lot of the things Trump says and I question his policies all the time but I cant help wonder why are people such as TI and Ebro so mad at Kanye. Online, I see people calling him Koonye. I dont think all of that is necessary.
Kanye went to the White House to talk about issues that concern him and should be a concern to all of us. I'm not a Trump supporter but how can I get mad at someone for going to talk to the man that can have a direct impact on a community, especially when it involves a city like Chicago.
A lot of people criticized the way Kanye spoke at the White House and said he sounds like a madman or somebody who is mentally ill. Just because we don't like the messenger, it doesn't mean we should kill the message.
It's funny that we forget that recently Kim Kardashian asked for a pardon for a Grandmother with a dam near life sentence. That pardon was granted.
Meeting with Trump is not going to solve everything but it can have an impact that can bridge the gap and get the ball rolling in the right direction.
This is gonna sound crazy. Just think about the way Trump just set free this woman who was supposed to be serving life behind bars. For all of the crazy things that Trump says, he has demonstrated that he has some good qualities as well. If he continues to make moves like this, Trump just may win over more Black people than anybody expected by the next election, just in time to win again.
If he can stay off of twitter and stop harassing NFL players that are protesting the injustices that are happening in America, he would really be able to turn the page on Democrats and put them in an awkward position. It is already being said that Trump has gained 12 points from the Black community due to his friendship with Kanye West.
I'm not saying he will win over all of Black America, that would be literally impossible. What I am saying is this, in politics, you have to learn to play the numbers game. If Trump won the 2016 election with no support from the Black and Latino communities than we can imagine what would happen if won over 12 percent more than before. As crazy as it sounds, it just may happen.
