Jake looked like Chris Christie in the Drump hostage video during the cut away to other guests. He looked god smacked like the rest of us at what had just happened.

It is on during the day, when I am usually not home. Never paid too much attention to him until Samantha Bee gave him a shout out on her program some time ago. He brings CNN back onto my TV, now that MSNBC has tried to become Faux Lite with the addition of Greta for a whole time slot and Newsmax guests.

I check in to Joy Reid whenever I find her in addition to her weekend shows - she is the BEST.

I think that's dropping daily. Wait till those tax cuts for the corporations get passed on to consumers.

"President Trump’s approval rating is at 39 percent, according to a new poll.

The latest Pew Research Center poll released Thursday shows Trump at a historic low compared with prior presidents in their first weeks in office.

The poll found just 39 percent approve of his job performance while 56 percent disapprove.

By comparison, President Barack Obama’s approval was at 64 percent in the February after he began his first term. President George W. Bush had a 53 percent approval rating in his first month in office. His father, President George H.W. Bush, had a 63 percent approval rating, while President Bill Clinton had a 56 percent approval rating. President Ronald Reagan had a 55 percent approval rating."

Jake is doing a great job, but it was not 44% of the population that votes for the #IPOTUS, it was 46% of those that voted. Approximately 55% of the total electorate showed up or was not repressed from voting.
That gives Sir Shitgibbon a 25% share.

It was unhinged. It was wild. All proving that Donald Trump is unfit to serve. Period.

It seemed he would never stop with his endless puffery
and victimology, so I finally turned it off.

But not before his saying that Rasmussen gives him a
55% approval rating.

What? Did he just pull that poll out of his ass, or is it
an outlier?

The poll found opinion on Trump is sharply polarized — 75 percent either strongly approve or strongly disapprove of the president."

16. Correction. Trump's vote wasn't 44%

....of all Americans.

It was 44% of all people who voted. Actually only about 28% of all Americans voted for him.

Wish our media would get that straight and describe more precisely. They keep making it sound as if his support is roughly half the country. It isn't. It's only 1/4 of the country.
