WE ARE GETTING TO A TIPPING POINT
Trump has been in office for 6 months now and has been causing unprecedented chaos. We are getting closer to the tipping point where people will stop putting up with his nonsense. Trump is aware that Robert Mueller is looking into Trump’s finances and those of his family. Mueller will look at the tax returns Trump has been hiding forever. Clearly, those tax returns hold the key to the leverage that Russia has over Trump. Most likely, when they are inspected they will reveal the quid pro quos that will undo Trump’s presidency. He may not be impeached and his office shields him from being convicted but if he remains in office he will be a lame tweet.
Quite possibly the tax returns will reveal schemes in which Trump participated that helped launder Russian money. Take for example the mansion Trump bought in South Florida and sold shortly thereafter to a Russian oligarch for a profit of about $50 million. Trump never improved the property and the oligarch never lived in it.
Trump has been in need of loans for his deals and American Banks are unwilling to lend him money. So he has to deal with shady banks and make deals to get loans – deals that may not be entirely on the up-and-up.
Trump is scared of what Mueller’s investigation will reveal. The more Trump gets scared the more irrationally he behaves. The more irrationally he behaves the less likely people will want to work for him.
White House communications director Michael Dubke has resigned.
Donald Trump’s administration has been hit with another high-profile resignation, as his personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz is reported to have quit the lead role defending the President from allegations of links to Russia.
Sean Spicer has resigned.
And this is just the beginning of the dam breaking. Watch closely over the coming weeks and months and I am quite certain you will see that list growing.
IT IS BECOMING CLEAR TO CONSERVATIVE COMMENTATORS THAT TRUMP IS A DISASTER AND THEY ARE NOT MINCING WORDS.
The Trump trainwreck is inspiring prominent conservative columnists to pen some sick burns. DAVID BROOKS’S Tuesday column for The New York Times is titled “Donald Trump’s Sad, Lonely Life,” and it only gets crueler from there. He characterizes the Republican nominee as a “friendless” “germophobe” whose “party treats him as a stench it can’t yet remove.” This arouses “deep sadness and pity” in the columnist.
In his column, entitled “A Conspiracy of Dunces,” the conservative New York Times columnist ROSS DOUTHAT began by saying that, “Here is a good rule of thumb for dealing with Donald Trump: Everyone who gives him the benefit of the doubt eventually regrets it” and also wrote that “we should drop the presumption that such collusion is an extreme or implausible scenario.”
Conservative Wall Street Journal columnist PEGGY NOONAN said a White House staff shakeup that President Trump is reportedly considering is unlikely to fix his problems . . . Conservative Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan said a White House staff shakeup that President Trump is reportedly considering is unlikely to fix his problems.
Conservative commentator and journalist Bill Kristol is speaking out against a video posted by President Trump on Sunday showing him beating up a person with a CNN logo on their face, saying the U.S. is “recapitulating the decline and fall of Rome . . .The speed with which we’re recapitulating the decline and fall of Rome is impressive. What took Rome centuries we’re achieving in months,” Kristol tweeted.
IN ADDITION TO THE COLUMNISTS, REPUBLICAN LEGISLATORS ARE ALSO SPEAKING OUT AND CRITICIZING HIM.
Washington (CNN)A group of Republican senators criticized President Donald Trump on Thursday, a day after the President rebuked top law enforcement officials in an interview with The New York Times.
“The attorney general is America’s top law enforcement official,” ONE GOP SENATOR SAID. “It’s unclear if he understands that, and that’s pretty disturbing.” The senator was referring to Trump’s comment in the Times’ interview that he would not have hired Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Sessions would go on to recuse himself from investigations related to the 2016 campaign. THE SENATOR SAID TRUMP SEEMED TO BE THINKING OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT HEADS AS HIS PERSONAL EMPLOYEES.
That Republican senator and two others spoke on background with CNN to avoid prompting a fight with the President. Maine GOP Sen. Susan Collins was the only one of the four to speak on the record in response to Trump’s comments about Sessions, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former FBI Director James Comey as well as his venting about the special counsel investigation into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election.
A SECOND SENATOR vouched for Sessions’ integrity and backed Sessions’ recusal decision, and a third senator said, “If you’re Jeff Sessions, it’s gotta be tough to come to work the next day.”
THE THIRD REPUBLICAN said he was stunned by Trump’s remark on Mueller, although he said “at this point” perhaps it shouldn’t surprise him.
SO THE COMMENTATORS AND THE LEGISLATORS ARE BEGINNING TO ABANDON TRUMP. THE LAST ONES TO FOLLOW WILL BE THE 36% OF THE ELECTORATE WHO VOTED FOR HIM. THEY BELIEVE THAT TRUMP HAS THEIR BACK. BUT WHEN THEY FIND THAT HE IS NOT DELIVERING ON HIS PROMISES TO THEM AND IS ONLY CONCENTRATING ON WHAT HE CAN DO FOR HIMSELF AND FOR HIS FAMILY.
IF YOU THINK THAT TRUMP HAS YOUR BACK, KEEP A MIRROR IN FRONT OF YOU AND WATCH YOUR BACK!!!
