President Donald Trump speaks to media before boarding Air Force One on March 24, 2019, in West Palm Beach, Florida. Carolyn Kaster/AP When President Donald Trump learned that a special counsel had been appointed to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 elections nearly two years ago, he predicted that the probe would end his presidency. “I’m fucked,” he said. This account comes from Mueller’s redacted report, released Thursday, under a section providing evidence for one way Trump may have attempted to obstruct justice: trying to remove the special counsel to thwart the investigation. On May 17, 2017, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions personally broke the news to Trump that Sessions’ deputy, Rod Rosenstein, had appointed a special counsel to take over the investigation into Russian interference in the election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. According to notes from Sessions’ then-chief of staff, Jody Hunt, Trump … [Read more...] about “I’m Fucked”: Trump’s Reaction When He Learned of the Special Counsel Investigation
OPINION 01/04/2019 05:49 pm ET Michelangelo SignorileColumnist Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who made history this week as one of the first two Muslim American women sworn in as members of Congress, has sent some people into spasms by talking about impeaching President Donald Trump and using a four-letter word in the process. “And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Mama, look, you won. Bullies don’t win,’ and I said, ‘Baby, they don’t,’ because we’re going to go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherfucker,” she told a crowd of supporters on Thursday night celebrating the new Democratic majority in the House. It was entirely predictable that conservatives and Trump supporters would erupt with faux outrage at hearing foul language from a Democrat. And Trump ― the president who famously spoke of grabbing women “by the pussy,” called Haiti and some African nations … [Read more...] about Lots Of Us Think Trump Is A Motherf**ker Who Should Be Impeached.

click to enlarge COURTESY OF JENNIFER HARRIS DAULT "Make the Gospel great again" .... ugh. If you are a Christian, you probably get chills when you read the first verses of the first chapter of the gospel of John: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. "The Word," in this passage, is Jesus. It all becomes clear in verse fourteen: The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. It's the very heart of Christianity: God became man, and even though man killed him, the fact He bothered to come here in human form was enough. We're saved, hallelujah. (Non-believers, you'll just have to trust us on this one. Thirteen years of religious education can't be wrong, can it???) Which is … [Read more...] about We Fixed That Appalling Trump Billboard Just Outside St. Louis for You
