    The arrested, imbattled, agents for foreign powers, caught with hand in Federal cookie jar, pulled off stage with a hook, or possessing too much integrity and fleeing with a Trump migraine, with in many cases a destroyed reputation, the list seems to grow daily. I’m wondering if this is a record for Presidential Administrations? Now we just need Supreme Leader to hit the road, and it will be a turn in the right direction. And consider His ironic, stick it in your eye Motto: Drain Flood The Swamp, ha ha. :oops:

    While you are at it, you can thank our lucky stars we have entities like the Washington Post and NY Times on the hunt. They more than deserve Time’s Persons of the Year Award.

    The latest:

    Unfortunately swamps are deep, so there's still a lot to drain.

    At least Trumpolini can boast his ego of having the most corrupt government the US has ever had!

    I wait impatiently to see the rationalizations & dismissals of all this. Especially the inevitable "this happens all the time in DC" bits. o_O

    Corrupt begets corruption. It put us at an extreme disadvantage when we knowingly or are not bright enough, even when it is rubbed in our faces, to avoid electing crooks. Besides the damage, it’s a National embarrassment. :oops:

    When they have nothing else, make an equivalence argument! This is while they’re defending their Crook. In most cases, I don’t think it’s realized just how shallow, political, and self serving the tactic is.

    Of the list above, I am most disturbed by Michael Flynn, the Patriot gone bad. :(
