The President's Pardon of Kim Jong-un

That's effectively what it is. No one, not even Trump's most rabid supporters, will argue that Kim Jong-un is anything but a two-bit despot who starves, brutalizes and murders his own people and would love to do the same to us. Yet our President has praised him, elevated him and is about to put him up in a $6,000 a night hotel suite , all expenses paid by the taxpayers of the very country that Kim Jong-un would most like to annihilate. And, to add insult to injury, he welcomes into the Oval Office North Korea's spy-in-chief and poses with a cartoonish letter like he's just won a high school raffle.

Human wreckage...

I know Melania signed on for this ride as well as Trump's adult kids. But Barron didn't. I think the damage to this young boy will be immeasurable.

Trump is being uncharacteristically quiet because

of his pre-nuptual agreement with Melania. No question in my mind. He stands to lose millions if she can prove that he violated it.

A thought about the Daniels interview.

What I found interesting was her fairly detailed description of what Trump said to her: "you're special, you're smart, I'll get you on the Apprentice." I wonder how many women are out there who have had an encounter with Trump and have been told the same thing. I imagine that the Playboy model was told the same thing...I wonder how pissed off she is this morning.

How, exactly, does Trump fire Mueller?

As I understand it, only Ron R. can fire him because Sessions has recused himself. So does lap dog Sessions fire Ron R. and then appoint someone else who will fire Mueller? Is there any other way that Trump can get this done?

So here's a question....

Say I'm just out of college or grad school and I apply for a teaching position at a public school. One of the interview questions is whether I am proficient with guns and, if not, would I be willing to be trained and carry one at school. I answer "no" and, despite my teaching qualifications, don't get the job. OR...

I am a seasoned teacher with 20 years of classroom experience. My contract is up and it is not renewed because I am unwilling to carry a gun and my school must "fill a quota."

This is what could happen if schools must fill a certain number of positions with people willing to carry, and use guns. A worse outcome would be if schools are forced to hire less than qualified people solely because they are willing to do this.

Maybe the brain in the WH has an answer.

There is only one word now to describe

the thoughts, words and deeds of this president, his henchmen and the Republican Party:

"heinous"

(of a person or wrongful act, especially a crime) utterly odious or wicked.
"a battery of heinous crimes"
synonyms: odious, wicked, evil, atrocious, monstrous, abominable, detestable, contemptible, reprehensible, despicable, egregious, horrific, terrible, awful, abhorrent, loathsome, hideous, unspeakable, execrable....

If anyone has a better one, let me know.

I've been here since the beginning but I don't post very often,

sometimes I feel distant from DU and then I get hearts. Thank you!

He didn't go to Florida this weekend...

yikes! I'm beginning to feel safer when he's on the golf course. Sad commentary on this Presidency.

Something to remember about these ex-wives...

I don't know about Sorensen's ex, but the other wives were approached by the FBI in connection with a background check. They didn't leak their stories or go to the tabloids, they responded truthfully to questions posed to them by the FBI. Keep this in mind when Trump and Company start calling this a witch hunt. FWIW.
