I think the Speaker has a psychiatrist on staff or on call.

Trump's behavior is like watching a mirror shattering in slow motion. I am guessing that NP is consulting with a behavioral expert before she makes a move with Trump. It seems to be working but it's painful and scary to watch.

What the Trump base is thinking these days:

"He's going to take care of me after he takes care of himself, his family, his friends and the rich people. I just have to have faith and wait a little longer."

The Speaker: "Will you come into my parlor said the spider to the fly."




"....The Spider turn'd her round again, and went into her den,
For well she knew that cunning Fly would soon come back again.
And then she wove a tiny web, in a little corner sly,
And set her table ready for to dine upon the Fly;
And went out to her door again, and merrily did sing,
Come hither, pretty little Fly, with the gold and silver wing.

Alas, alas! how very soon this cunning little Fly,
Hearing her wily flattering words, came slowly fluttering by.
With humming wings he hung aloft, then nearer and nearer drew.
Thinking only of his crested head and gold and purple hue:
Thinking only of his brilliant wings, poor foolish thing! at last,
Up jump'd the hungry little Spider, and firmly held him fast!
She dragged him up her winding stair, into her dismal den,
Within her little parlour; but he ne'er came down again.
And now, my pretty maidens, who may this story hear,
To silly, idle, flattering words, I pray you ne'er give ear;
Unto a beatiful lady, close heart, and ear, and eye,
And learn a lesson from this tale of the Spider and the Fly."

~By Mary Howitt, 1829

Ad on MSNBC

Have other people seen the ad on MSNBC with the elevator music that comes on about 10 times an hour? It's driving me nuts!

Has he promised each Republican senator a high place in his dictatorship or

just some of them and the rest he's threatened to execute in LaFayette Square?

I think more people would support impeachment IF

Congress proposed serious legislation at the same time dealing infrastructure, health, wages, education, immigration and other issues that people really care about. The people I talk to who are not liberals by any stretch of the imagination, acknowledge that Trump is a crook and has committed crimes against this country but they are worried about their own futures and the futures of their children. All they see and read about in the news is Trump, Trump, Trump. I think there would be a major change in attitude if Democrats in Congress began proposing legislation that directly affects their lives. I also think that Trump would not know how to handle that.

Pelosi and others keep talking about the fact that they can walk and chew gum at the same time. Let's see some of that. Let's knock Trump off the front page and get people engaged in things that will touch their lives.

I know some will say that taking this approach is hopeless because Trump and the Republicans won't go along but I think that's exactly the point. Show them up, don't just talk about it, do it!

Why did Trump reply honestly to the reporter's question

about whether he told Putin to back off meddling with US elections?

He said that the subject didn't come up. He could have lied....lying is second nature to him, like breathing. He told the truth and all the flags went down on the field for me.

Does anybody have any ideas as to why he did that?

Who wins the normalization prize today?

The republicans, the press, Sarah Sanders, the rest of us?

It's perfectly alright for our President to discuss matters of our national security with our greatest foreign adversary. Isn't it?

Why doesn't Trump just put Putin in the Cabinet?

They talked about the Mueller Report....let that sink in.

Why Barr did what he did:

1) He was instructed to do it;

2) He was confident that he would have "cover" for his lies;

3) He knows that there are no standards of behavior anymore and that the American people are so beaten down that there will be no consequences.

He betrayed a close friend and violated the oath he took when he became a lawyer and a public servant. He spit on the legacies of Elliot Richardson and Archibald Cox.

He didn't do all of this in the heat of the moment. He planned for it. He telegraphed it in his 19 page "job application."

He did all of this for Donald Trump and it will haunt him for the rest of his life and be the headline on his obituary notice.

Sad, very, very, very sad.

If Impeachment is so bad for Democrats, why

isn't Trump trying to goad them into doing it? Why is he fighting so hard against it? If he's so against it, I think we should definitely do it.
