I think the question of Russians laundering money through the Trump Organization and holding tremendous influence over the sitting POTUS is something that deserves a serious looking into, assuming Mueller doesn't already have the answers...and this isn't a partisan statement.

Why in the hell does that "question" take so long to answer? It didn't take long to nail Manafort. Mueller didn't take that much time to indict a bunch of Russians--as meaningless as that was. Cohen was taken down pretty quick. It looks like Stone and Corsi will be indicted in short order.

It shouldn't take that much time to get someone as stupid, incompetent, shallow, unserious, careless, and so loaded with lies and corruption as you make Trump out to be. Were talking the FBI with a host of tricky, ravenous lawyers who have a record for bringing down their prey by any means necessary.

This investigation seems to be going very quickly and is producing a lot of results compared to others of this importance.

Finally, some crystal clarity rather than the usual insinuations, peripheral maybes, accusations, name-calling, labeling, and murky suppositions.

Are you going to make another prediction regarding this matter Jeff? You have a track record on things like this. Tell us what your insiders say.

For someone who embraces seeing the light, it is a deceitful leap back into darkness for you to leave out the words between the period and the last word of my sentence which you quoted.

Listening to his rallies it is funny.

"lock her up" for a woman who hasn't been arrested for anything when you are shouting it w/a Pres. under investigation and dozens of his staff arrested, indicted or under investigation

"drain the swamp" when you have cabinet members and people in the admin. who have lost their jobs for using their office to benefit from it.

What is the definition of mouth breather?

A performance of “Fiddler on the Roof” in Baltimore Wednesday night was marred by a man yelling “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump,” according to the Baltimore Sun.

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them tools at their disposal that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. - Marco Rubio

“Veterans Day often follows a hard-fought political campaign, an exercise in the free speech and self-government that you fought for. It often lays bare disagreements across our nation. But the American instinct has never been to find isolation in opposite corners. It is to find strength in our common creed, to forge unity from our great diversity, to sustain that strength and unity even when it is hard.

“It’s the example of the single most diverse institution in our country—soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and coastguardsmen who represent every corner of our country, every shade of humanity, immigrant and native-born, Christian, Muslim, Jew, and nonbeliever alike, all forged into common service.”
Barack Obama at Arlington, Veterans Day 2016

I suppose he could have stayed in the White House and sulked.

He regrets that he didn't go, and says he should have gone, but he reveals, contrary to the false notions created by various media. This is a very good interview with him by Chris Wallace. It covers a lot of things, including what HE means by fake news as opposed to what the media says he means:

But with America we celebrate shared ideals. We are not French or Germans or Sri Lankans (except for those that want to divide us along those lines). Since as Americans we are a mix of all different things we try to bind along ideals like opportunity and liberty. That yes, Americans should move our interest and ideals first and be the inspiration for other people to do the same.

A little nationalism in our ideals, Freedom and Opportunity is a good thing. Ultra-nationalism based on skin color and ethnicity is what is dumb, and is, ya know, racist and fascist.
I don't think what you say here is a difficult concept to understand. Your idea of what is now being touted as an American nationalism is what Bannon refers to as American economic nationalism and what Trump refers to when he claims to be a nationalist.

But the anti-Trump media either can't, or won't recognize Trump's easy to understand version by insisting on another version promulgated by Mussolini and Hitler, in which nationalism has strong ingredients of racism, fascism. This insinuates that Trump is a fascist racist whatever. And I believe that they stubbornly refuse to recognize the version you speak of in order to intentionally cast Trump as a fascist racist. As I say, it is not at all difficult to understand your version, nor Trump's version which is virtually the same as yours. Which is why I think the media intentionally distorts the truth and is "fake" when it does so.

I don't have time to rebut all of Trumps false claims in this interview, he continually issues false statements or half-truths and claims that they are true.
Listen to this supposed Clinton supporter, who's given more to this country than Trump could ever think of

He regrets not going because of the bad press, not because it means anything to him personally.

As for the interview, he didn’t look good.

Not to mention disparaging such a respected and dedicated military hero. You have to wonder if he has any concept for patriotism, sacrifice, duty...

He knows he's blowing a dogwhistle and you respond every time, like a good obedient Trump Nationalist.

He's not a narcissist at all: "I would give myself, I would -- look, I hate to do it, but I will do it. I would give myself an A-plus, is that enough? Can I go higher than that?"

And when the media doesn't concur, he then judges them fake

And then you have Real news written by a Real president consisting of halftruths, falsehoods and a remark that would be expected from a sixth grader

So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!

Hopefully you can figure out the lack of truth in the tweet above, or perhaps in your's and Trump's America, Trumps claims outweigh the rule of law.
