Re: May you live in interesting times
I wonder if Trump will even get to the Presidency, thanks to the endless efforts by the Democrats to sabotage him. Now Obama is trying to start a war with Russia, which I suppose he hopes will become Trump's problem Either that or create a national emergency that will give a reason for him to remain in office. He's just moved troops near the Russian border.

Bet?

All this is based on the fake news that Russia interfered with our election. First it was how they hacked our voting machines, which happens to have been an impossibility. Now it's that they are behind the leaks of Democrats' emails which supposedly had the effect of giving Trump the edge in the election. (It's still likely that Trump won the popular vote despite the propaganda, because there was definitely election tempering that favored Hillary by the millions).

Evidence?

Julian Assange of Wikileaks has said clearly that there is absolutely no evidence that the Russians have had anything to do with any of this. There are rumors that there was definitely interference but not by Russia and that we'll eventually get to hear about it, but I'm wondering when. In any case Obama and the Democrats love their fake news so much they are trying to start a war over it. So far Putin has been acting rationally, apparently understanding what Obama is plotting, and wanting to wait to deal with Trump.

Trump said that Russian hacking was a big problem ... back in 2014, before he realized it was good for him.

Some people are saying we are blessed to be living in such interesting times. I get the idea but it's hard for me to share it. Old Chinese Curse: May you live in interesting times.

Alternatively it seems you can have paranoid delusions and those are just as interesting.

Re: Fake news
Even supposing Russian hackers did hack Hillary Clinton's email does not deflect that it was still Clinton harboring that material on unsecure servers.

Have you been asleep for the past few months? Russians did not hack Clinton's email. No-one hacked Clinton's email.

Re: Opposites attract
I'm pretty sure it was the people who voted for Trump who got Trump elected.

Re: And now a call to investigate Trump directly and Trump's Russian connection.
I'm guessing he'll just say that he knew nothing about what Flynn was doing.

That's hardly credible, but when has this ever bothered the Trumpster ?

Trump claiming to be ignorant of the facts sounds pretty damn credible to me.

Re: This is great.
Trump is great he is doing everything he said he would.

He said he'd release his tax returns if he ran for office.

Everything He Said He Would
Trump is great he is doing everything he said he would.

* "I would release tax returns, and I would also explain to people that as a person that’s looking to make money, I’m in the business of making money and if I won, I’d make money for our country. [...] I have no objection to certainly showing tax returns."

* "I would rarely leave the White House because there's so much work to be done."

* "I'm going to be working for you, I'm not going to have time to go play golf."

* "You know, I tweeted today, @realDonaldTrump. I tweet. Don’t worry, I’ll give it up after I’m president. We won’t tweet anymore. I don’t know. Not presidential."

---

Now, these are easy promises to keep. The first can be achieved in a two minute phone call. The other three can be achieved by not doing stuff. How hard can it be? I've never tweeted, played golf, or spent the weekend at Mar-A-Lago, and for a small fee I can teach Trump not to do those things either.

Is he gonna blame Democratic obstructionism?

Re: This is great.

On 7 May 2015 Trump tweeted : "I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me."

The CBO says that the Republican health plan will cut $880 million from Medicaid over the coming decade.

Trump is supporting the bill.

"I didn’t think I’d say this, but I’m going to say it, and I hate to say it, but if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception, there has never been anything like it and we’re going to have a special prosecutor." --- Trump to Clinton, second Presidential debate.

Ooh, didn't he say that Mexico would pay for the wall? But his budget says that we're paying for it.
