The US joined Nicaragua and Syria in opposition to the Paris Accords which might be the most damaging thing our president has done to date. That includes possibly thin skinned tweets, exaggerating crowd sizes, implying that Obama tapped his wires, handing the keys to the country to a bunch of fringe lunatics and colluding with the Russians. This is where the GOP is now, they are literally ignoring science and pretending it doesn't exist.
Then again, this is a party who believes that the earth is 5000 years old which would mean that the Righetti from 2000BC was sliding down a Brontosauruses back when he left work at sun-dial 30 degrees.
The party of Lincoln and Reagan is now the party of Flintstone. Nice job

But it's not just the people who are getting scrutinized for their shady shenanigans, it's the regular folk who are jumping ship.
There was word today that the shakeup at the White House has officially started and maybe, just maybe, it's not Trump who is firing people but people walking out on him. Mike Dubke the White House communication director was the first to jump ship saying his reasons are "personal" which using my magic decoder means that he doesn't want his career ended by a sinking boat the size of the Queen Mary.
Jason Chaffetz saw the writing on the wall a few weeks ago and he's out of his congressional spot (and possibly has some answers to give his former colleagues when they bring him back under some kind of investigation). Of course he lost Flynn, half of the people he wanted for FBI director have stepped aside, a bunch of other positions have had guys bow out as they couldn't show a clean record. Kushner is on the way out and will bring Ivanka with him. You know Sean Spicer is on Trump's wish list of guys he can fire and he might just do it to see the little rabbit squirm.
So he loses his communications director, can't find anybody who can actually get through confirmation hearings for half the roles, has not even nominated 75%! Of the position needing confirmation. Plus he hasn't filled half of his open positions in the legal departments, ambassadorships and under secretaries, and now he's losing the few people who he did have.
Time to call ZipRecruiter I guess.

Trump is not lovable, he's not harmless and he's not smart but he is loud, obnoxious, self absorbed and tacky, in other words he has reinforced every American stereotype.

It's never the prime minister of Luxembourg or the ambassador or New Zealand they failed to disclose, it's always a phone call that starts with 011-7.
As the Trump Russian story gets deeper and deeper, the more obvious it is that nobody is that interested in Michael Flynn, the prize is a much bigger fish and the Feds are about to have a gigantic seafood cookout. It's been bantered about that Jared Kushner has been caught up in the Trump-Russian web for some time now but the release of the report that Kushner was trying to establish a backchannel with the Russians during the transition was more than a little troubling. It's not just that the likelihood of both Trump and Kushner being highly leveraged and indebted to the Russians, it's that all indications are their entire stories are yet to be told and it's unlikely trump didn't at least know about this on some passing level.
Flynn got axed for for not disclosing his contacts with the Russians, which is the grand scheme now is like not admitting you hooked up with a round chick in college one drunk night.
If Flynn hooked up with the round chick, Kushner was banging her daily, calling her at night to sneak into his room for a quick BJ and five hole tingling. And if Kushner was banging here daily, his Father in Law was gaining her call him a dirty pig, while having her tie him up, clamping his nips while shoving a red ball in his mouth and then taking the goldest shower this side of a Trump hotel.
There is no way that Kushner can keep his security clearance or his job
The first question I'd have for Jared is "who else did you fail to disclose that you met with on the forms?"
If the answer is nobody else, then why did you not disclose the Russian contacts?
If he answers with a list of others, then why did you lie on your forms, which is a felony by the way.
Either way he is toast.

What I have an issue with is that the Dolce and Gabbana jacket looks like it was crocheted by a ten year old. It's got to be the ugliest $51,000 jacket I have never seen
Although to be fair, it was likely made by gold labor in Vietnam.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/pope-francis-jokingly-asks-lady-feeds-trump-article-1.3191700). The thing about Trump is that he was a total load before getting into his current job but like Carmelo Anthony before him, he seems to be getting fatter as he season goes on. In the article it references a Dr. Oz segment where Trump admitted he could lose about 15pounds off of his 6'3" 236 pound frame. If Trump is 236 pounds, I'm Harry Truman. The dude is easily two and a half bills, likely pushing 275 at this point.
It's the reason that for being a self proclaimed billionaire, he shill dresses like he's wearing his dad's suit. He can't fit in anything that he claims to be able to get into. The guy has as much style as a houseplant and the intellectual curiosity to match

In the call Trump also called out Kim Jong Un as being a nutjob with nukes although he might have just been referring to himself there

But when he was asked to go to some random thing, he sent Ivanka in his stead because he was "exhausted". This is the same guy who bullied poor Jeb! unmercifully for being Low Energy! to the point where Jeb! sank his entire campaign hopes down the drain.
At least tomorrow he'll be in Israel when Jared announces the peace plan we've been waiting for for 2000 years I can't wait

This week Sweden dropped their rape case against him which will likely mean that Ecuador is sick of him stinking up their bathroom and clogging up their dial-up with donkey porn and want him out. But when we finally saw the soon to be free man, he was sporting the kind of mullet that would make Steve Perry proud. Maybe he's secretly Canadian.

We know he is easily riled up and extremely thin skinned, so it's not hard to image a Jack moment where he screams that damn right he ordered the code red. We know that Trump is guilty, we know that he's not very bright and we know that he will take the bait, so now all it takes is a prosecutor or interviewer who can go toe to toe with him. Trump is no wimp and he'll likely not go down easily but it won't be long, his handlers can't keep him away forever

Our President is a moron
Here are two report I read today..
First a report from (http://foreignpolicy.com/2017/05/15/nato-frantically-tries-to-trump-proof-presidents-first-visit-alliance-europe-brussels/amp/) with the headline NATO Frantically Tries to Trump-Proof President's First Visit. The article describes sources inside NATO and Senior US officials recommending heads of state to limit talks to 2-4 minutes at a time as our president has a notoriously short attentions span.
Second report from Politico (http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/15/donald-trump-fake-news-238379) with the headline. How Trump gets his fake news. The president rarely surfs the web on his own, but his staff made a habit of slipping news stories on to his desk- including the occasional internet hoax
For years we have heard the modern GOP as being anti-intellectual as they catered to the lowest common denominator when it came to things like science, evolution, climate change, EPA etc but calling Trump an anti-intellectual is an insult to other anti-intellectuals. Our president isn't just anti-intellectual, he's anti-high school intelligence. This guy isn't mentally or emotionally equipped to run a bake-sale and 43 million people thought he was the guy to run the biggest economy, have control over the biggest armed forces, the biggest democracy with the smallest hands and the smallest mind this side of a smurf and the intellectual curiosity of a house plant.

This is what happens when one obese president puts a similarly fat guy in charge of health, you have our country go into one simultaneous gigantic bout of cardiac areas
But if we're all gonna die anyway, I'll have a large fries with my double bacon cheeseburger deluxe and give a gigantic coke, too.

But we are in a place in time where this is acceptable. Trump shuns his obligations of transparency, he acts like a juvenile, he lies, he cheats and he cries about being treated unfairly. He's a ten year old shoved in a 300 pound old man's sloppy body

Our president fires the FBI director investigating his office, tells you it was done upon the recommendation of his AG and then two days later says it was actually based on his own decision. This is a president, in the mists of RussiaGate invites Sergey Lavrov into the Oval Office and we later find out that another Sergey, Sergey Kislyak also shows up. The same Sergey whose meetings with Flynn were his ultimate takedown. The Russians also sent out some photos of the event, an event where the American press was not present. This was a meeting which was apparently insisted upon by one Vladimir Putin
The chances of them having dropped a bug in the Oval Office has to be somewhere between 99.9999 and 100%, right? The only chance they didn't bug us is if they were picking up the bug that Flynn left there

But what was more obvious, was not all the distractions that the GOP tried to throw at Yates but rather the fact that they warned Trump of the dangers of Flynn and instead of dismissing him, they went back to ask why it should matter. These are not professionals, these are not people who are trying to do right, these are people who are playing an elaborate game of cover up
Yates showed that she won't be intimated by Don's morning tweets and showed to be more competent than the entire team he hired
Let the hearings continue

I'd have to think that if you've been dependent on Obamacare today kind of sucks. There is nothing worse than a bunch of old rich white guys spiking the football on the back of your health insurance's demise.. Not only was this new TrumpCare not vetted through congress, many members said that they didn't have a chance to read it yet, it was also not vetted by the Congressional Budget Office who would give you an estimated cost. Whenever you try to pull an Art Modell and pass one of these things in the middle-of-the-night, something feels off..
If you are a healthy person between 20-30, things look pretty good for you, that is, of course, assuming you don't have cancer or aids or acne. Having had a previous pregnancy can also be considered a preexisting condition which is very exactly telling your own mother to go screw herself. But the good news is that Trump promised a great health care for everybody and even commented how great the (single payer) Australian one was when he met their Prime Minister yesterday.
One condition that doesn't seem to be considered pre-existing is ED.. I wonder why

I'm no biblical scholar but it seems to me there should be no natural connection to Trump's gaudy buildings, singular top down leadership, defense of the brand to knock down stories in the press not favorable, legions of followers of the word of a single man, major corruption coverups, ambiguous speeches and massive donations cloaked under the banner of trying to make change
Let alone an older man in leadership accused of groping younger followers

Our president is not exactly a student of history preferring to make his own (and later trying rewrite it) than studying it. Steve Bannon whispered in his ear that he's the new Andres Jackson and Trump immediately had his portrait hung up in the Oval Office. He went to visit his gravesite and may have seen something on his presidency on the history channel (although he probably bad to tinkle when the chapter on the trail of tears thing came up)
But this is the world we live in, Trump tell us that Andrew Jackson would have prevented the civil war negotiation, not sure exactly how that worked but it seems odd being that the statement is a direct indictment of the president his party claims to get it lineage from. But apparently according to the historian in chief, Lincoln wasn't smart enough or a savvy enough to negotiate his way out of the firebomb heading right towards the core of our country. Yes, Mr Davis, you give up slavery and we will give you a few acres in Oklahoma and a few smallpox blankets to boot
