He went from "Investigating WH isn't my job"

to "Oh yeah, let's investigate!" the minute that a now-former Democratic President was accused of something cooked up from the right-wing fever swamp and disseminated by our President.

It seems like ICE and CBP

have been totally let off the leash under Trump, which, so far, hasn't seemed like much of a good thing for a lot of people. I know that the Trumpublicans probably are gushing over their aggressive Gestapo-like tactics (they're just busy making America great again!) but I can't imagine that many immigrants- even those with some kind of legal status- are sleeping well at night anymore- and that's not something that I want our country to be known for (and not even something our country has traditionally been recognized for).

I wonder if there are ICE and CBP agents whom are a bit unhappy about how their agency is treating people nowadays? I haven't heard about a lot of pushback.

Not to mention the fact

that Texas, among other states and Trumpublicans want to repeal ACA, destroy Planned Parenthood, block grant Medicaid, and some, like Paul Ryan, desperately want to privatize Medicare. If all that goes through, what the hell is a pregnant woman going to do when faced with not only the possibility that a child she's carrying may have severe disabilities who will require lots of intensive medical care to survive but also that they may be prohibited from even KNOWING before the child is born? Couples would never even know whether or not their doctors were being truthful with them about what is going on with their pregnancies. This is awful even if just for the damage it could do between women and their doctors.

If Trump gets high marks for a decently presented speech in front of Congress

meaning one in which he doesn't go off on an incoherent rant or toss a massive "word salad", lord help us if he launches a war or we suffer a major terror attack that gives people excuses to rally around him like with George W. Bush.
