    I just remember how depressed I was when this man was declared the winner in November. I couldn’t turn on the news or twitter for months. It was the worse imaginable thing I believed could possibly happen for this country. I am somewhat relieved that my instincts of concern were correct and that this horrible man will be dogged everyday his occupys the White House

    • May 16, 2017 at 8:51 pm

      I remember very well how disrupted my life was in the aftermath of the election. Couldn’t sleep or eat or really think straight. Just very, very freaked out. Not just because HRC lost but because of all we knew Trump would destroy. All he would do to undermine PBO’s progress because Trump hated him so much. And he’s done so with ugly precision. His bigotry and racism have been on full display.

      In the last couple of weeks those feelings of deep anxiety and despair have returned. Watching the wholesale destruction of your country and everything you value about it is debilitating. Without sounding too corny, I have to hope this is the darkness before the dawn. Trump has very, very BAD karma. And I like to think his tab is up.

        I found it so hard to sleep last night after the revelation that Trump had given out top secret intelligence to the Russians and probably that agent who got that intel is dead now. Makes me sick.

      Oh, I know, DD4O. I was watching online, bottle of pink bubbles chilling, and around 9:30, I texted my bro at WETA, said wtf, this is so wrong. He sent back to say, oh yeah, the newsroom was trying not to go into shock, and all were very concerned and very nervous. We are all still living that night. I didn’t open those bubbles, needless to say. Nothing to celebrate

      At least for some (maybe most) GOP, it’s gone beyond party over country. That they are allowing 45 to destroy their party along with the country tells me that it has been degraded to the level of personal self-interest. if any justice is served through Congress, it will be more of a CYA/Save yourself effort.

    • May 17, 2017 at 12:31 am

      Remember Ken Lay? He finally went to prison and he died there but they did not move to freeze his assets fast enough. All that money from Enron disappeared — no doubt in offshore accounts. Trump has capitalized on sucking millions out of the government as well as all the deals made with other countries. I don’t want him to resign and I don’t want him impeached. I want the election to be nullified and the whole administration needs to go. And then I want Mcconnell Ryan, Pence prosecuted.

      • May 17, 2017 at 7:29 am

        There is no provision in the constitution for a do over election. My question is has white America and the so called progressives learned any lessons

    I hope he lasts to get to the NATO meeting. No-one will want to speak to him, no-one will discuss anything of importance and the foreign press will be merciless. In addition, the US political media will do as they always do, ignore the reason for the visit and concentrate on what is happening at home.

    He may not last to get there.

      I look forward to Pete’s shade game when this shit show goes on the road. 45 hates the PBO c/c because he is reminded how poorly he stacks up against a man that he tried and failed to destroy. Every day that this fool and his deplorable cabal flounders about, our PBO is vindicated more and more. PBO and MO are going about their business, living their lives out loud and being blessed with the warmth and love of millions, welcomed everywhere with smiles and cheers. I continue to pray and to thank God for their service, continued safety, and that they and their family are blessed in all ways.

        Oh, I agree. Not sure if they’re looking the other way, don’t care, or he won’t allow their interference.

        • May 17, 2017 at 7:40 am

          He’ll probably try to hold out as long as he can. As long as he is POTUS, he’s protected under the Supremacy Clause (for most crimes). Once that status changes, he could be deluged with charges and convictions. He’s panicking because he cannot rely on his normal channels of avoiding indictments/convictions.

    Good evening……just a report from tornado alley. You may have read or heard about a tornado hitting Elk City, Oklahoma. Destruction of almost an entire residential area. The storm hasn’t reached OKC yet, and by the time storm gets here, it should be just rain. The storm is big enough that in a small city like Elk City, 24,000 people are without power, and 40 homes have been destroyed, with several people injured. We have a good warning system here, don’t think I’ll go to bed just yet. Must keep up with the weather.

    Will report back tomorrow.

    Thank goodness – David Frum said on Lawrence’s show he’d be really surprised if Trump took the trip abroad. Hadn’t heard anybody say that, but there’s no way he should be representing us outside of our country – especially through that huge trip agenda some fools set up for him.

    Somehow I got stuck between a rock and a hard place
    And I’m down on my luck
    Yes, I’m down on my luck
    Well, I’m down on my luck

    I’m hiding in honduras, I’m a desperate man

    Can’t believe I haven’t taken a moment to share my news:

    Woohoo! Kicked Big C’s Ass!
    Doc says latest scan shows “no evidence of cancer.” Was a very aggressive type though. No guarantee it won’t come back, so I’m to be monitored – quarterly checkups and semi-annual scans for next two years. I’m still anemic and wobbly when walking, but improving. One more hospital visit to remove the chemo port, then that’s it! Hallelujah!

    None of it possible without the prayers, encouragement and love from friends and family like you! I am truly blessed!

    The last few months have been painful. It has been difficult to accept that the American people would have elected such a person to the most important job in the land. I have seen the pain of TODers and could not understand how such a disaster could have happened. I mainly lurked with nothing of benefit to say.

    I hope I am not wrong saying the sunshine seems to be peeping through – although he is so ignorant and unqualified for the job, I never imagined that he would have been this much of a disaster.

I will pray that this remission continues. Hope your strength returns. …..we just had some thunder and rain last night, about 1 a.m. No tornado here. Elk City, which was hit terribly is 110 miles west of OKC. They had some terrible damage, 40 homes totally destroyed, more damaged…these storms are so capricious, you never know where they are going to hit. The storms went north and east from Elk City
    Hoping for a good day for all of you.

    “Watch Joy Reid connect the dots showing Pence is up to his neck in Trump’s Flynn scandal”

    “There is a consciousness of guilt here,” Reid said of Trump asking Pence and his attorney general Jeff Sessions to leave the room. “It’s not that he doesn’t understand. Not only does he ask Jeff Sessions, the head of the Department of Justice to leave, he asks him twice.”

    Reid said that even Sessions, “who’s no paragon of virtue” had to have recognized that there was “something entirely improper about leaving them alone.”

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has been insistent that Pence was complicit in Russiagate from the beginning. In several bombshell reports, Maddow walked through warning after warning that Pence was confronted with regarding Russia and retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

    When it came to Pence knowing about Flynn’s side job as an unregistered foreign agent for Turkey, Maddow also called BS.

    “That cannot be true,” Maddow said. “It is impossible this is the first Mike Pence has heard of it. Mike Pence was the head of the [Trump] transition, while all of those news stories of Mike Flynn being on the Turkish government’s payroll were breaking. He was the head of the transition when Mike Flynn was being vetted for the National Security Advisor job. He was the head of the transition when Congress formally notified the head of the transition that Mike Flynn appears to be on a foreign government’s payroll. He was the head of the transition when Mike Flynn’s personal lawyers came and told the transition that Mike Flynn maybe needed to register as a foreign agent.”

    • May 17, 2017 at 9:43 am

      Joy Reid is so thoroughly excellent at what she does. You can see that she thinks deeply before she speaks, has sound and convincing arguments and lays them out logically and succinctly, unlike other pundits who simply react from their gut and vent emo BS, shouting over each other, preening for the camera. I hope she is duly recognized.
