    After the millions of fake votes now he said the news did not report terrorist attacks. Of course he has no evidence of this. He is passing off both sides with his mouth.

    3 Million illegal votes because he lost by that margin
    illegal polls because they show him ranking low in popularity
    Fake news because they disagree or even ask him to clarify
    "so called judge" because he ruled against him
    Fake attacks because he wants a real one so bad..

    Alternative universe rather than facts

    By the amount of Trump threads we see here, even if he is, he's bringing a lot on the left with him.

    I read that someone from his staff produced a list of 78 terrorist attacks that prove his point.

    Love to see that list ... and I'm pretty confident that it doesn't.

    From the NYT:

    "Later Monday night, the White House released a list of what it said were 78 attacks from September 2014 to December 2016 that were executed or inspired by the Islamic State. The White House said “most have not received the media attention they deserved.”

    The list included the major attacks in Paris; Brussels; San Bernardino, Calif.; and Orlando, Fla., that dominated the news for weeks. Other attacks overseas, lesser known to Americans, received extensive local coverage, such an attack in Zvornik, Bosnia, in April 2015 in which one police officer was killed and two others wounded in a shooting. But in many of these attacks, it was not clear what role, if any, the Islamic State actually played."

    Apparently it has gone from unreported to "not receiving the media attention they deserved." Given all the backpedaling you'd think he'd have slimmed down some by now.

    And clearly the Paris, Brussels and San Bernardino attacks barely made the headlines.

    It's called push back on the crazy. I would hope that you would want to push back on someone that was cracking up too. But all too many have been silent when they too, should be speaking out and opposing. No one, no matter what party or political ideology they have, should be okay with someone crazy being in the White House surrounding himself with people whom are also crazy. That's not a partisan thing. That's a safety/common sense thing.

    At least it should be.

    But now we're finding out how easily people trade in their common sense for tribalism.

    The "so-called president" is their guy, and they are sticking to him.

    And that kind of team sports thinking will be our undoing. There are things that rise above partisanship. We just need people to start remembering what they used to understand.

    CNN apparently got that list, and I believe all 78 were attacks that CNN had posted about. The only way for the White House to get the list of 78 attacks was from researching the attacks and having to find news articles about it, because that how you compile a list, by finding sources that originally reported it. Its just one big, ridiculous circle of nonsense.

    I'd say his shell broke long ago. Hell the man had a pissing match with Australia because he was fatigued according to the WH. Which in itself is ironic considering how he claimed Clinton wouldn't be able to handle being in the WH cause she was sick and how he also claimed he would be the healthiest POTUS of all time.

    Actually no. We have cheeto because of "you guys" throwing away their vote on candidates that could not win. And because Hillary had too much baggage. Obama had nothing to do with it and certainly not the things you mentioned which the average citizen of the United States does not care about.

    Mitch McConnell is starting to state some differences with Trump to wider audiences than to people who make a point of reading everything about DC politics. McCain and Graham were already doing that but when the Senate Majority Leader goes on TV on a Sunday show and enumerates five, six, eight points on which there's daylight between himself and the president, someone's on thin ice and it's probably not Mitch McConnell. Bannon might be in Mitch's sights, who knows.

    Trump tries to make anything that's not going well --or going over well-- be the media's fault. But, McConnell is attributing Trump's views to Trump on national TV, point by point, and distancing himself from those views, so "the media done it" may not fly much longer. What's Trump going to do next, call Mitch a liar or just a traitor?

    So far McConnell's pushing back on Trump's takes on voter fraud, immigration bans, being cozy w/ Putin and ranting about individual judges. That's the Senate Majority Leader of Trump's party, taking Trump to task, albeit with the usual care McConnell does take to stick to his own script and not be led by reporters. It's not like it's the host of the show making this stuff up; the segment on that show was just McConnell's vehicle.


    When the majority leader of the Senate --not a Democrat, as you know-- starts taking public exception to a bunch of stuff that a Republican president is saying, it's probably fair to say that yeah, those things matter. Among the things McConnell takes exception to was how Trump characterized Putin on the O'Reilly show.

    He disagreed most pointedly with Trump comparing Russia’s human rights record with that of the United States.

    McConnell flatly rejected the comparison on CNN.

    “Putin is a former KGB — he’s an agent, he’s a thug,” McConnell said.

    “The Russians annexed Crimea, invaded Ukraine and messed around in our elections. No, I don’t think there is any equivalency between the way the Russians conduct themselves and the way the United States does.”

    It was a stark contrast from what Trump told Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly in an interview set to air Sunday before the Super Bowl.

    Trump said he respects Putin, although he cautioned that does not mean he’ll get along the Russian leader.

    When O’Reilly asserted that “Putin is a killer,” Trump responded, “Well, you think our country is so innocent?”

    “There are a lot of killers. We have a lot of killers,” he observed.

    This didn’t sit well with McConnell, who on Sunday said, “I obviously don’t see this issue the same way he does.”

    Cheetolini is in power because of the votes people cast for him. It's amazing that some want to blame it on something or someone else. But the only thing that counts are votes. And if you cast one for trump, then that act was what actually put him in office.

    It would be interesting to know how many people in the swing states that put him into office have come to regret their votes so far. I know people in NY who are sorry now, but Hillary got NY's electoral votes, and subtracting Trump votes from NY's total would just make Trump's pop vote total look worse, not unelect him.
