It looks like Trump destroyed himself today.

But this will take time to sink in. Trump went with Putin, and against the CIA, FBI our allies and the U.S.A. When the country fully understands what happened today, Trump will be gone, one way or another. There is no walking back, and Trump never apologizes for anything. No explanation will work, because there is none. This will be talked about for months. If Republicans defend Trump, it will help Democrats in November. November could see a "blue wave" beyond anything imagined.

dalton99a, you just NAILED it. I'm editing this to make sure you get credit when I go back and reread it and try to recall what was said by whom. "Trump fully revealed himself as a traitor and a Russian puppet".

A lot of us knew that already, but it's quite eyebrow-raising to see other voices than ours gradually starting to chime in. John McCain's statement, for one, was hardly what you'd call a softball. And I'm still wondering about that rumored GOP "emergency meeting" that supposedly was abruptly called earlier today.

114. It will not be forgotten. Why? ..Trump went against the CIA, FBI, and all our allies in order

to side with Putin. I believe that this will define him. Defending Putin, knocking our own agencies and friends. People who have worked all their lives to deliver the truth to the U.S.A. and Trump sides with a Russian leader. I believe Trump has defined himself forever with today's actions. I believe it will never be forgotten. You may not know it, but 44 years ago in 1974..Nixon said, "I am not a crook." It is not forgotten....

...The day Trump allowed Putin to screw our agencies and our country, will not be forgotten. This will define Mr Trump forever....

They're a little thrown off because it was totally indefensible today. But that isn't unusual for them. In an hour or two now, though all get around a few talking points, Hillary, Obama, a scumbag liberals and do their thing. And then the media roll over and chase their tails and a good day.

The Republicans will realize that howling about this will damage their chances in November so they will bite their lips and accept Putin as their new best friend.

(Checked on Freerepublic and of course they are all delighted and convinced the whole Russian plot was cooked up by Obama and the deep state. They cheer Trump 110% naturally.)

The damage done by the Dotard this trip is going to compromise our interests world wide. That may be the saving grace as he is now messing with markets and donor money. If they turn on him, he's done.

My initial thought though, the trumpanzees will dig their heels in even more to prove they were not conned and played for the easy marks that they are. It's the self preservation of their own egos that is keeping him elevated in the base.

If no outrage by them, the news will move on.

Again, i hope that I am wrong.

129. Unfortunately, you are correct. The GOP reps and senators will do nothing.

 

They have just done what they always do. They spoke words of disapproval and then went back into their offices to let the whole thing get replaced in the headlines by the next crazy thing he does.

They will take no action at all. None. By next Monday he will have done at least one crazy thing a day to change the narrative. And it will work just as it has worked so far.

35. Except Trump supporters and Congressional Republicans

As long as the traitor is Donald Trump, they not only like him, they love him!!!!

You give his supporters more credit them they deserve, he did this to see how far he could push, something he's been doing since he got into office! And each time he's moved his agenda forward, congressional Republicans and his base have stood by him!

If he were to declare martial law tomorrow, do you really believe that his supporters would 'get it'? Do you believe that Republicans in Congress would 'get it'? Do you even believe that the 4 conservatives on the SCOTUS would 'get it'?

He could actually shoot someone at the Lincoln Memorial and his supporters still wouldn't 'get it'!!!

145. i think this is the defining moment either way...

if his supporters coalesce behind him solidly after this, he has a green light to do any goddam thing he likes.

the baby prisons were a test, too, and the deplorables' devotion "passed", but this one's harder -- it takes place without the lure of racism and bigotry to aid it, except in the abstract. they have to really want a reward that's not immediate gratification of some base urge, and this will be the turning point.

if they can excuse treason, they can excuse anything, and humanity gets another object lesson in genocide.

but if they can't, then their resolve falters, and their numbers diminish. perhaps some healing could begin.

42. I think the GOP has a very devious plan in place:

They will bring charges against Trump, knowing they still have the votes to acquit. This makes them look good for the midterms and ends the investigation for all practical purposes. It's a win - win for them.

in his body language and facial expression, like a bad boy who'd been caught doing something that would result in punishment by his master. Fucking scary to tell the truth. This guy's selling us all for nothing more than his own enrichment -- and he knows it, knows Putin knows it, and knows we do too. But he just can't help his self-serving power and greed impulses.

He doesn't want Democracy because he can't keep being so corrupt, and would be held accountable. Putin s just using him because he's so incompetent , and corrupt. He hit the jackpot using trump. This is world shattering what he's done in public today. Putin is as big a serial liar as trump is, and maybe why they get along, but it won't last long , as his usefulness will wear out , them putin will turn on him before trump tries t turn on putin.

What do you think? Maybe someone warned him, maybe but I am sure he ignored the warning. Why? Because he thinks he is "smart"...and he could handle it....

I hope that it does but I think the dynamic we have is that most trump supporters are more unified in their deep hatred of liberals, democrats, democratic organizations, etc.

They will not view the attach by russia on the DNC, Democratic organizations as an attack on Americans. They believe its a warranted attack on what they perceive as the reason their culture and their way of life has changed.

I believe if you polled trump supporters if they would be in favor of Russia attacking the democrats in America, you would get many of them in favor.

They may have been fooled, but they're sticking with Trump and denying every bit of evidence given to him. Trump is openly corrupt and a liar, but they stick with him all the same. He's not doing anything to bring their jobs back, get them retrained for new jobs, and he's wrecking the safety net they depend on right now. Still they stick with him blindly.

I think they do it out of pride. They must know Trump is bad for them and America, but their pride won't let them admit that or come over to the liberal side of things that provides every benefit and protection they hang on to.

As dramatic and surprising these losses of his are to me, I suppose his hemorrhaging of the center-rightist's support was eventually going to happen.

91. "This will be talked about for months." Or until the next bit of Trump madness catches...

...the media's attention. Nothing stays in the public consciousness for very long. Not even kidnapped and caged children.

92. It won't change 45 fans at all

So we must get out the vote. Please as I'm a committee member in a 'red' district - please reach out to your Democratic Committee members.

No stone unturned, no door unknocked, no phone left undialed. Carry around voter reg cards and vote by mail.

Anything and everything will get the blue wave. We have got to out number them.

That's the only way.

And his roommate, who is an engineer, is defending Trump and saying he is a brilliant man who has kept all of his campaign promises.
After watching him with Putin today.

102. Keep in mind...

These people arenít Ďjust stupidí, their powers-that-be actively *cultivate* stupidity and closed-mindedness. Fundamentalist ideology cannot survive and propagate through the generations without it. I have a lot of conservatives in my family, it took me a regrettably long time to work that out.

97. Not until the GOP does something. They got their tax cuts. Waiting to get their S.Ct.

Nothing else matters to them.

Remember that almost all the guns in the U.S. belong to the conspiracy theory paranoid far righters, propped up by the Russian-funded NRA.

And now we know why.

101. It's looked like that before but Republicans always pull themselves back into his ass within a week

This won't be any different.
They will complain for a few days then shrug and continue as if nothing happened.
In a month or so will be supporting Putin also.

I have no faith at all that Republicans will stand up for this country.
Being terrified of their lowest denominator constituents is their overarching quality.
I don't expect this to change.

103. He'll pull a Steven Segal and move to a nice dacha when the time comes

Once the Mueller investigation closes in, cadet bone spurs will resign and relocate to Russia. His lord-and-master will grant him Russian citizenship and shelter him from extradition. But I seriously doubt there will be a grand hotel bearing his name in Moscow. Or any other real estate there. And once he loses any value to the oligarchy there, he will likely disappear.

Melanoma will fade away, back to Lower Slobovia.

His spawn? Well, they will probably fare better than the Romanovs, the last of the Russian tsar lineage. Probably...

Trump stood up there and supported Putin over the United States.

Most important....Everyone knew, knows and understands exactly what Trump did. It was clear and easy to understand..people will not forget this

125. Trump's Saturday Night Massacre moment.

That was the tipping for Nixon and Donald just passed his in Helsinki.

The Saturday Night Massacre was a series of events on the evening of Saturday, October 20, 1973, during the Watergate scandal in the United States. U.S. President Richard Nixon ordered Attorney General Elliot Richardson to fire independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox; Richardson refused and resigned effective immediately. Nixon then ordered Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus to fire Cox; Ruckelshaus refused, and also resigned. Nixon then ordered the third-most-senior official at the Justice Department, Solicitor General Robert Bork, to fire Cox. Bork considered resigning, but did as Nixon asked. The political and public reaction to Nixon's actions were negative and highly damaging to the president.

so some of Dirty Donny's republican devotees will crack under the strain. Who knows which way they will then go? So, of course, will cling even more tightly to the republican lies they have swallowed so greedily.

137. Yep. Abso-fuckin-lutely. Trump is DONE.

 

He swore his allegiance to Putin and Mother Russia in front of the whole world. He dismissed the entire US Intelligence community in front of the whole world. He defecated on the integrity of our elections in front of the whole world. He dissed out allies in front of the whole world.

In other words, he admitted to being a Russian sympathizer in front of the whole world.

No one that matters is standing up for him. I've never heard media analysis not even try to find an equivalency argument for something he did, but that happened today.

History will record this as the day it was over for the pretender-in-chief.

146. I wish that this were true.

But Trump true believers will always believe him over anything or anyone sane.

They are literally a cult and, as they have already shown, have no qualms about upending US democracy altogether.

The question is really whether those of us in the majority can keep this in our minds long enough to vote in a Blue Wave in November. Without that, I truly believe that we are lost.

GOPers in Congress MAY bemoan Trump's words and actions. But they will NEVER do anything to remove him from office and will continue to do his bidding. It is, after all, their own agenda.

Radio will massage the facts into something where it was a brilliant move by tRumpy to work in Hillary's server and in the end it's all Obama's fault and tRumpy is rebuilding the shattered relationship with Russia n Putin.

So darn much winning.

156. Don't be so sure....

This "private" meeting with Putin was about making a deal for Russia's help with the mid-terms. Trump already gave it away when he predicted the other day that we would see big red wins in the mid-terms? How does he know this when all of the trends are pointing to democrats winning? The deal was done and no one is doing anything to stop this. Republicans are poised to keep power and control.

160. We've been saying that since he announced...

Pussy grabbing didn't do it.
The POW insult to McCain didn't do it.
The Meghan bleeding out of her wherever comment didn't do it.
The mocking of the disabled reported didn't do it.
The mocking and name-calling of every single political opponent didn't do it.
The physical threats against people at his rallies didn't do it.
Threatening to take trans vet's benefits away didn't do it.
Immigration policies that tear children away from their parents didn't do it.
Packing the Supreme Court in a way that will reverse much progressive federal written law since the Civil Rights Act hasn't done it.
A million other mini-atrocities haven't

Televised Treason? We'll see. But I'm beginning to think this Trump's 5th Avenue prediction might hold at this point.

I'm frightened for our country.

161. Trump suffers from dementia (compounding the effects of all his other mental issues).

He thinks he is the CEO of the US, and the intelligence agencies are just departments in HIS company that have been giving him bad advice. He thinks Putin is head a big company he'd like to merge with, but first he needs to break contracts he has with a bunch of subsidiaries of a company called Europe. He thinks Congress is his Board of Directors who rubber stamps his decisions because he holds a majority share in the company.
