Exactly, an innocent person would sit back and allow the investigation to proceed perhaps, even assist. But, what has the talking sweet potato done from day one? Attempts at distraction, obfuscation, denials, what would an innocent person have to worry about?

Staying on message is not his strong suit

“So your vote in 2018 is every bit as important as your vote in 2016…although I’m not sure I really believe that,” Trump admitted. “I don’t know who the hell wrote that line, I’m not sure…but it’s still important, remember.”

CBS News’ Lesley Stahl spoke this week at an event in New York and shared a previously unreported exchange she had with Donald Trump during his presidential transition process.

Stahl said she and her boss met with Trump at his office in Trump Tower in Manhattan after the 2016 election in advance of a recorded sit-down interview for “60 Minutes.”

“At one point, he started to attack the press,” Stahl said. “There were no cameras in there.”

“I said, ‘You know, this is getting tired. Why are you doing it over and over? It’s boring and it’s time to end that. You know, you’ve won … why do you keep hammering at this?’” Stahl recalled.

“And he said: ‘You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so that when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.’”

A court ruled that Trump can’t block people on Twitter anymore.

GOP'ers get to reside in a reality distortion field in which Dems can only dream of living.

Let it be the civic duty of all patriotic Americans to mercilessly troll his ass until he abandons Twitter.

Not merely complicit in murder, but actually committed murder for hire.

This is all fake news though. A Republican would never do that.

So much for that Nobel Peace prize. Like eight months of positive press for a situation that has ultimately not changed in any meaningful way. Cool.

Trump, lulz.

The Trumpsters are going to spin the hell out of this. It shows strength, blah, blah, blah. Trump doesn't know the first rule of business, under promise and over deliver. What a bunch of idiots.

We are such an unreliable ally at this point. The rest of the world either loathes/untrusts us or owns our compromised potus.

thoroughly enjoyed her declaration that elon musk engaging in union busting was “fake news” since she went to one of his factories and didn’t see it happening.

"Rahm - Assume you saw our news. We look forward to diving in deeper on Chicago's proposal," Carney, who is Amazon's senior vice president of corporate affairs, wrote January 18. "As I think I mentioned before, everyone here was impressed with the proposal your team put together. Many thanks, Jay."
Emanuel responded with a reference to a real estate rankings list published by Redfin.

"Yes aware. Thanks," he wrote. "Hope you saw the recognition of our neighborhoods (7) that have it all!"

Carney wrote back: "I did. Good stuff."

Then Emanuel replied: "Whose (sic) your daddy? Talk soon. Hope family is good."
