2. He whines more than my niece and she's in Pre-K

FFS! STFU! Aside from his criminality, immorality and racism. ( As if those are not deal breakers on their own). How does any woman deal with him? I cannot stand a whiny ass man!

7. And some say not a very good distraction!

tRump is no longer putting out original distractions that are effective. So sad for him - NOT!

5. In all seriousness, this might be Cheeto's way of floating a Lawfare trial balloon.

Lawfare, for anyone unfamiliar with the term, is basically a regime's weaponizing the judiciary against critics and opponents.

Strategically placed prosecutors and judges who, either through political affinity or sheer bribery (and sometimes extortion), will railroad opponents at the president's whim.

You're seeing this in a number of right-wing and otherwise authoritarian regimes around the world - notably in Argentina against former President Cristina Kirchner and her ex-officials; and Brazil, to remove former President Dilma Rousseff, and to later jail former President Lula da Silva (who would be president today but for that).

In the U.S. we saw this at work under Bush through his lackey Alberto Gonzáles, who as many will recall was given to using U.S. attorneys to harass Democrats.

Trump himself has already openly said he'd like to go this route. And there's no one he'd rather start with, than President Obama.

16. I have no doubt that is what this fascist POtuS would like to do.

Given 4 more years with judicial appointments -- after committing high crimes and misdemeanors with impunity -- I'd be surprised if that judiciary was not weaponized as a tool of an authoritarian state.

9. Great graphic.

Really good. I've passed it on in the hope it might go viral.

It drives me totally nuts that decent people all over this country aren't calling their Congresspeople every ten minutes until this crisis has passed. Every single decent thing this country should stand for is being torn apart by Trump and his criminal gang - and that really is what they are - criminals and traitors.

12. This is his MO

When he is threatened with exposure , he abuses his power to use against others , now President Obama . Eventually he'll threaten all of us because he's in trouble with the law, and they're closing in. He's a criminal with power, and a really dangerous position for this country.

13. trump and McConnell blocking election protections

Is aiding and abetting the enemy. trump and mcconnell are both compromised by putin, and should be held fully accountable for this. Now trump is trying to switch out Dan Coats for his minion Nunes to undermine National Security even more with is obstruction, and a danger to all intelligence groups. trumpski and moscow mcconnell are both so far up putin's ass now this is the greatest threat to our nation's security we've ever had, and from a president and Senate majority leader.

28. I'm so looking forward to Trump's memoirs. Do you think it will bear any resemblance to the truth?

Maybe Sean Spicer or Sarah Huckabee Sanders would agree to ghostwrite it for him. Look for it in the fiction section of your local library.

Although if there is a federal law against profiting off books about your own criminal activity, he may not get to "write" a memoir.

29. Legally, he would be allowed to write it, just not make a dime off it.

Of course, if you can't read or write to begin with.......

Or maybe he could dictate it to someone. Of course, there would be the problem that no one other than a James Joyce scholar would be able to decipher his stream-of-(semi-)consciousness babbling........
