    Good morning!

    • May 8, 2017 at 11:43 am

      Good morning, misspat and everyone else. Thanks, NW, for the new thread, the warm hug, the peace-filled smile, the dignified #44foreverpresident. Good day to all.

    I saw this on MSNBC that President Obama warn Trump about Flynn, but we all know what Trump went ahead and did. Maybe Russia wanted Flynn to get the job, and Trump had to do what Putin said. .

      Just in case PBO thought the world wouldn’t love him after he was done presidenting… Thank you, Italy, for holding the torch! (Mind you, no one gets to keep him, he’s ours, but we love to share!) ❤️🌏🌈👊🏼🙏🏻

      Love your tweets Nerdy, but my first thought looking at that photo on the left in that middle tweet here was, “Wow! Look at our FINE Forever POTUS!”

      He is putting on a walking clinic on elegant and effortless cool style in Milan, and he is American!

      Grazie President Obama, for presenting “una bella figura” on behalf of our country!

      Our PBO more loved and appreciated globally than any other American president and it is all because of his character.

  5. May 8, 2017 at 12:19 pm

    Remember, Trump is going to Europe soon. We will be treated to quite the stark contrast between the receptions that creep gets VS the reception President Obama is receiving. The WORLD loves and appreciates PBO.

      I am guessing some shoe throwing to the Orange Face.

      • May 8, 2017 at 12:35 pm

        I fully expect large and boisterous demonstrations. And he will not be able to run away.

          If he actually makes that trip….he might cancel for all you know.

            He might. He cancelled out of the WHPCA dinner because he knew he’d never be as big a hit, plus maybe other stuff I’ve forgotten. And now seeing how President Obama is welcomed in Europe … might be too much for his itty bitty self-worth.

      My wildest dream about President Obama’s trip to Milan has been that Pope Francis would swing on over and be sitting in the audience, front and center, eating popcorn, only putting the popcorn container down to mildly applaud. The Pope has spoken out a gazillion times about protecting our planet – because he actually has influence and a brain, unlike 45 and RWNJs.

    I’m not sure how it’s going to happen with this Republican House and Senate but Trump is going to go down but even more important is that Pence knew that Flynn was bad news as well and lied to the public about it. Both of them will be implicated when this is all said and done. #RottenToTheCore

    • May 8, 2017 at 12:32 pm

      I agree. Although it has taken far too long already, it will happen. They all need to go.

    • May 8, 2017 at 12:33 pm

      I have no doubt that Ryan and McConnell had knowledge as well. Would that they will all be implicated.

    • May 8, 2017 at 12:36 pm

      It will take time but it will be incontrovertible.

      Great! Thanks a lot for making these statements & unequivocal spelling out that pence knew as did so many others. At every opportunity I have been trying to make people focus more on the culpability of pence & have used the harsh-tag #PenceKnew. It or another one with a similar sentiment has not caught on yet. I also believe that evil McConnell is more involved in #TrumpRussia than has been discussed to date

  7. May 8, 2017 at 12:23 pm

    How I love this man! I am so proud that all of us recognized his greatness and have cried, laughed, worked, and stayed together for all these years and always.

    Good morning Ms. Chips, Danny and TOD family, I hope all is well with everyone this lovely Monday morning. Congrats misspat, on being first this morning.

    Nerdy, thanks so much for helping Ms. Chips and for the sacrifices you’re making for us TOD’ers. 💫🙏👌👊❤

    To all, I hope your strength is in your ability to adapt to circumstances while simultaneously moving forward, your courage is in your willingness to look out for the interest of others, and your get-up-and-go attitude is from your determination to live into your vision until it attains itself today and forever. ❤ ❤ ❤

    I am thankful to God that I lived to witness one of the greatest President of The United States of America in President Barack Hussein Obama ⭐🏆 ⭐🏆 ⭐🏆

        Yes, I’m hoping Angela will remain in place … and then, because a few European leaders are quite young and new to the process of governing, I see President Obama and Angela as their mentors extraordinaire!

    Mercer Sued by Hedge Fund Worker Fired After Blasting Trump
    May 8, 2017, 2:30 pm

    excerpt:
    The dispute started on Jan. 16 when Magerman called Mercer and asked to have a conversation about his support of Trump, according to the complaint. During the chat, Mercer said the U.S. had started going in the wrong direction “after the passage of the Civil Rights Act in the 1960s,” according to the complaint. Mercer also said that black Americans “were doing fine” in the late 1950s and are the “only racist people remaining in the U.S.,” according to the complaint.

    “Magerman was stunned by these comments and pushed back,” according to the complaint. Reminded of the racial segregation that existed at the time, Mercer allegedly responded by saying those issues weren’t important.

    4. Every GOPer in A state with a Senate seat up in 2018 -Dem or GOP
    5. Every state with a Governors race in 2017 and 2018
    6. Then pick the GOPers enough to add up to 100 GOP house -winning that should be the target – concentrate on 100 seats to flip
