That's a first - reading about a triple amputee veteran and thinking 'What a tosser'!

The NY Times are reporting that law enforcement officials were so concerned by Trump's actions after firing Comey that the FBI began investigating whether Trump was a Russian agent.
And, right on time:

He hasn’t finished yet.
Unfortunately you only get 280 characters on Twitter so he couldn’t fit ‘whatabout’ in.

Thing is he's an angry moron, we shouldn't exactly expect an measured or reasoned, or in fact, even logical response......

Mr. President,

Declare a national emergency NOW.

Build a wall NOW.
....or if you could bring yourself to believe in a devious, calculating GOP (rather than the dim-witted, scared GOP), "let's keep pushing Trump to do stupid things, so that it makes it easier to disown him at a critical point later".

Granted this logic is flawed on so many levels, I don't really know why I suggested it :-).
There is another explanation - that the GOP and their supporters genuinely believe in what Trump is trying to do. IIRC 77% of GOP voters want the Wall. The Wall was one of the BIG things Trump promised during his campaign. We might not like it but that’s democracy and that’s what a lot of people voted for.

I think that's a sub-set of dim-witted and scared GOP though ;-) (joke, Byker, not disagreeing)

Maybe so, but a responsible GOP (lol I know right) wouldn't be enabling this goal via a phony 'national emergency'.

But the campaign promise was that Mexico would pay. Now, it's American taxpayers, if he gets his way. Also, he could have pushed this through when the GOP controlled the House and the Senate. Why is it an issue now? If it was an issue during the campaign in 2016, he's been sitting on his fanny since he assumed office.

It's incredible isn't it, there really is a Tweet for every occasion isn't there!

(What it shows is that these people have a long history of sitting on their ass blaming everyone else for everything, but not actually doing ANYTHING themselves. Years of sitting there thinking "I could do better than that" despite actually not having any experience or skill to do any better, and so falling into all the same, usually blindingly obvious, traps.........

It's beyond parody - and has been for a long time. America needs to be delivered from this nightmare - somehow.

This months pay checks of Zero amount are starting to be sent today. Air traffic controllers are either getting no pay, or being furloughed

More than 24,000 FAA employees are working without pay, since their positions are considered vital for “life and safety.” Another more than 17,000 have been furloughed, told to stop doing their jobs, including the vital training work needed to bring much-needed additional air traffic controllers into the workforce after years of retirements have thinned the ranks.

Will they eventually be paid their lost earnings, once things get back to normal?

For no point whatsoever, I found that and retweeted it to her and Trump. I hope many more doing the same. Makes no difference to either of them, but still......

More bad news for trump:

MICHAEL COHEN, President Trump's former fixer and personal attorney, will testify in PUBLIC before House Oversight on Feb. 7. Expect questions about his involvement in hush money scheme to silence Trump affairs, the Trump Tower Moscow project in 2016 and other controversies

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/10/us/politics/mic...

ON TV AND UNDER OATH! 7th Feb

“In furtherance of my commitment to cooperate and provide the American people with answers,” Mr. Cohen said in a statement, “I have accepted the invitation by Chairman Elijah Cummings to appear publicly on Feb. 7. I look forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired.”
So this the the big one no?
1St time one of the big guilties gets to have their say in public.
There must be loads of nuggets that he can just drop in during the event. Nuggets that Muller may not be interested in, but that could swamp the orange one with gossip, new threads for investigative journalists to follow. Etc.

If Cohen drops an abortion bombshell, Trump may be on very thin ice.

He is going to need something big to distract from that!
Holy st this is going to be insane to watch. He will be talking about a sitting president! Who needs tv series when this exists.
Don't accept a late night ride in a Mercedes, Mr Cohen...

Trump will be ringing Putin for advice on dealing with embarrassments. Putin will be giggling into the phone whilst suggesting high buildings have their uses, perhaps he could fall out of a Trump Tower somewhere (a few of Putins critics / ex-friends have "fallen" out of things, haven't they?), or would he like a personalised perfume delivery?
