Since he has NPD (it shows), can that be enough to invoke the 25th amendment?

I mean, it seems far-fetched with pretty much everything Republican controlled, but you never know.

Unfortunately, it seems party before country. It's acceptable to them when he mocks people and goes back and forth.

It's embarrassing! Why Twitter hasn't banned his account yet is beyond me. Meanwhile, Trump supporters will still shout from the rooftops that Obama was the divider-in-chief. I agree that I don't really know what country I'm living in anymore either.

There is SO much winning going on that the Senate GOP gave Wall Street (namely banks) another big win tonight by nullifying a consumer rule that allowed Joe Average to band together with John Doe and Jane Smith file suit against banks. In a surprise move, two unusual votes ended in the 'No" camp requiring Pence to break the tie (Kennedy-LA, and Graham-SC joined Democrats).

The bill now heads to the White House where that great champion for the average working American will sign the bill into law.

So the next time that Wells Fargo creates fake accounts under your name or Equifax says it suffered a second data breach...when American Express and Visa unilaterally and immediately change your terms with them...remember that Trump and the GOP are merely looking out for your best interest by allowing these institutions to be protected from any class-action lawsuits and instead enter into private arbitration (where they'll no doubt have the upper hand).

Future Wikipedia entry about president Donald Trump will probably read something like:

Milestones of President Trump: overturned all possible decisions of its predecessor, only to have to reversed by the next government.
First US president to serve out a life sentence.

More like.

No other president achieved the same in such a short time. In the first nine months the stock market reached new records, the unemployment fell to a 17 years low, ISIS has been defeated, the Court of Justice is working again, the military is strong again, historic VA improvements, energy freedom, border security, the 2nd amendment was secured. The president also achieved to expose the lies of the media which led to the widespread acceptance of the Fact that most of the media is just making up "Fake news". He reversed the course that made America weak under President O and by people like liddle senator Corker. And in the end he even forced the NFL on their knees and stand up during the national anthem. #winning # MAGA

His obsession is crazy. The man and his base were so offended by a Black man serving in the White House, they won't rest until everything the Black man did is undone. It's been reported - I believe by Ta-Nehisi Coates - that whenever he's presented with any issue, his first question is what Obama's position was on the matter. He's absolutely obsessed.

Well well well... all this reference of Trump somehow being a Manchurian candidate and no reaction whatsoever to the news that the infamous pee dossier, used by the FBI as an excuse to spy on US citizens (and give its results to elected officials who used it for political purposes) was actually paid for by... Hillary Clinton and the DNC. In violation of campaign finance disclosure rules, too. How ironic.

Not very surprising, given that you are misrepresenting the facts. Financing research, previously financed by Republicans, that digs up information that is then used to compile a dossier, without the payings parties knowledge, isn´t the same as paying for a dossier. You also got your time line wrong, the FBI was onto Trumps possible treason long before the dossier came out.

You also fail to mention that Trumps ties to Russia where not even within the purview of that research, but that is where the trail let them. So actually this is proof that Trump/Russia isn´t a witch hunt, but came up in an data driven process.

You are falling for simple spin control, again. And it isn´t even smart spin control, because it is flat out obvious that if Hilary and/or the DNC have had that information, they would have used it before the election, not before the Inauguration.

It is also sort of cute that uncovering acts of treason by a now sitting US president and maybe or maybe not, commit a technical violation of campaign finance disclosure rules in the process is somehow bad and evil, but removing that traitor or even investigation if he is a traitor isn´t worth the time and effort. I would also like to see proof that it is a violation, since the WP that broke that story, doesn´t say anything along those lines.

The British spy who created the infamous (and widely discredited) pee dossier was hired AFTER Hillary and her gang ponied up the cash, it was not part of the scope of work of the opposition research that the Republican (if you can call John McCain, who was almost certainly behind it, that) ordered. The FBI then desperately latched onto that ridiculous pee dossier, at McCain's request, even though they probably knew it to be false, to ask for wiretaps on Trump campaign officials and other U.S. citizens they would not be able to get otherwise - something that would make J. Edgar Hoover himself proud. With how the deep state works, if there was any actual, concrete evidence against Trump before that (other than some ridiculous "one guy in his organization once visited Russia" crap - his was a global business, and Russia is not North Korea) then a) it would have come out long ago, in the campaign, and b) the FBI would have been able to get their warrants earlier.

And yes, this is the same FBI whose former director started drafting his speech exonerating Hillary Clinton from an investigation two whole months before he even interviewed her or the people in her campaign as a part of that "investigation".

I'll add a few.

He has issues with China and Mexico because they didn't give him the real estate developments he wanted. His entire ascent to the presidency and how he governs is to get even with everyone whom has wronged this child since day one. He goes after basically every single criticism of him from the media and those whom have face terrible hardships.

I don't think that it is party before country as Pence would probably make the those in congress far happier.

I think invoking the 25th will cause some serious violent uprising among Trump's strongest supporters. They will see it as a coup d'etat with the Washington elite is taking control of the government (even though this of legal authority) and also any of those that signs this order will have their jobs threatened.

As of right now congress is keeping Trump in check (whom has no legislative initiatives anyway) so as long as he doesn't start a war let him be a doofus to a point.

Amongst the swamp-draining, we have our weekly Sunday Twitter Tantrum:

US President Donald Trump has launched a Twitter tirade about the "guilt" of Hillary Clinton and the opposition Democratic Party.

His Sunday morning outburst came amid reports that the first arrest in the Russian collusion inquiry would be made this week, possibly as early as Monday.

Mr Trump insisted allegations of collusion between his campaign and Russia were "phony" and a "witch hunt".

He said Republicans were united behind him, before urging: "DO SOMETHING!"

Re: the BBC link: The uranium one attack is utterly meritless.

"Uranium" may sound like a bogyman to the uneducated; but, uranium is not in short supply anywhere, it is merely a commodity. North Korea for example, mines all the uranium they need locally. It may as well have been a company dealing in porkbellys that was (not objected to being) sold to a Russian entity under Hillary's watch at the US state Department. In any event, the uranium remains where it always was: in the ground in western Canada.

How can the Trumpsters even think they can make another Hillary scandal out of that?

Are we just going to forget Dustin Wright, Bryan Black, Jeremiah Washington, and La David Johnson? They had no back up when they were ambushed, they were murdered under this president's watch. No investigations, no calls for his or anyone else's resignation. Just forget them because Republicans are the majority.

sad.

Actually there are investigations underway but you'll probably never hear about them. Their team wasn't doing what we were told they were doing, they were on, or in support of, an offensive action which is beyond what their mandate was supposed to have been. The public was told they were on a training mission when they were "ambushed".

Trump has given the green light to many things that used to need specific WH approval; it seems that the loosening up of restraint has also worked its way down the chain of command.

Meanwhile, here's another scary story about our elite units in Africa.

When Obama took weekend trips to Camp David or Massachusetts, the right would cry and scream about how lazy he was. How many golf trips has tRump taken the past year and not one peep from those same people. Any reason why?

When you do such an awesome job during the week, you can relax on the weekend.

It is an issue that he feels entitled to take every weekend off. But, it is a bigger issue that he is wasting taxpayer money every weekend by golfing because Secret Service has to be there. Usually at one of his properties. This is fiscal responsibility? This is helping to lower the deficit?

i think the bigger problem is that it is way to funnel tons of tax payer money into his own pocket, wasting it is one thing, bad enough, but funneling money into his own pocket is worse.

I could have posted this in the Aviation thread, but here goes:

President Trump arrives on AF1 in S. Korea and departs on Marine 1 to meet with the Military. 8-)

And while he's in Asia, things continue to heat up for him back home.

The House Intelligence Committee on Monday released the full transcript of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page's testimony before the panel last week, portions of which support details in an explosive collection of memos outlining alleged collusion between the campaign and Moscow during the election.

Well, Trump certainly had the most scary Halloween of his life and is probably acting out of line even more to produce little, smaller "scandals" to distract people.

It also starts to seem like Putin was in for the whole 9 yards .....

https://www.theguardian.com/news/2017/n ... -associate

Just when Russia started social media for propaganda domestically, government owned or closely tied companies start funneling money in US social media through Yuri Milner, who just happens to be one of the investors in a company Kushner forgot to disclose, aside of that company not just being a bought asset, but one his family has founded..........

At some point "coincidence" becomes a lame defense...
