The Go Fund Me for Trump's wall has slowed dramatically

I know a few days ago it was averaging 3 million a day. I believe on day 4 it was around 12 million. 3 days later it's still under 17 million averaging just over 2 million a day now and I think has picked up less than a million today. I am guessing it ends up stalling out completely around 30 to 50 million, approx 3% to 5% of the goal. https://www.gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall

This is how effective something similar to Trumps fence is

Sure, it doesn't have the pointy tops but extremely easy to scale. They can throw a carpet over the points at the top if needed or just use a hammer to smash the points down a bit to make them blunt.

Trump accused of 'raw blatant obstruction' by ex-US attorney for pressing acting AG to interfere

Trump accused of ‘raw blatant obstruction’ by ex-US attorney for pressing acting AG to interfere with SDNY investigation

President Donald Trump “likely” committed a federal crime by complaining to acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker about investigations by the Southern District of New York.

Former federal prosecutor Mimi Rocah, a former assistant U.S. Attorney in that district, joined MSNBC’s “Live” with Alex Witt to analyze the latest developments.

“There’s new reporting the president has lashed out at Mark Whitaker at least twice in the past few weeks, both times over revelations surrounding his former lawyer, Michael Cohen,” Witt reported.

“I am curious about your reaction to this, because even if the president is not directing Whitaker, isn’t there still a level of influence that he is trying to put on the investigation?” Witt asked. “And could that not be considered obstruction?”

The press should just surround Ann Coulter's house and ask her what she wants Trump to do next

Only makes sense since she seems to be running the show.

Wonder how the Grifter in Chief would react to that?

So if the border wall go-fund me gets to say a few billion and ends up in the general fund

then as we know pet projects for wealthy donors and who knows what will just gobbler that shit right up. Does anyone think the Trump supporters who donated billions will still get a clue?

When was the last time Trump had a win?

I can't remember anything but his stupid tax cut that blew up the deficit.

Trump is 'flipping out' and 'there's going to be an intervention' after Mattis resignation:

I am thinking this might be close to a breaking point for Republicans. Republicans are seeing what happened with Syria and Mattis and they are getting very freaked out.

Trump is ‘flipping out’ and ‘there’s going to be an intervention’ after Mattis resignation: Former senior White House staffer

20 DEC 2018 AT 22:35 ET


“Trump has been isolated in bunker mode in recent weeks as political and personal crises mount, according to interviews with 27 current and former White House officials, Republican lawmakers, and outside advisers to the president, some of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to offer candid assessments,” the report says.

Things are likely to come to a head now that Mattis is resigning.

“There’s going to be an intervention,” a former senior White House official told the Post. “Jim Mattis just sent a shot across the bow. He’s the most credible member of the administration by five grades of magnitude. He’s the steady, safe set of hands. And this letter is brutal. He quit because of the madness.”

The situation inside the White House was dire Thursday night, the report said. A Republican close to the White House told the Post Trump was in “a tailspin,” acting “totally irrationally” and “flipping out.”
