Over the weekend, Jared Kushner was credited with negotiating a $110 billion arms deal with the Saudis. On Same Weekend as Record-Breaking Arms Deal, Saudis Announced $100 Million Donation to Ivanka Fund

Que up the video of Trump naming Hillary corrupt for accepting money for her Foundation from the terrible women repressive and gay killer Saudis.

Everything he said during the campaign was a lie and turns him into a complete hypocrite

but we knew that already

True Tax reform has nothing to do with cutting rates on the rich. Reform would mean cutting writeoffs and loopholes that allow crap like this:

1998 Trump buys 436 acres of undeveloped generic land from another real estate holding company in Westchester and Putnam Counties for $2 million.
He intends to build a golf course, which falls through.
Journal News reported.

In 2006, he decided to donate the land to the state of New York to use as a park. Trump said he believed the land was worth $100 million, and in exchange he was able to use the donation as a tax write-off.

Apparently no tax officials call him out on this wild claim.

Furthermore, wasn't it Keith who was singing all those patriotic songs after 9-11. I smell hypocrisy.

It was also Toby Full Of Sh#t Keith who performed his big hit Made In America at the inauguration while playing a Takamine guitar. What a dick.

It seems to be assumed an effort at impeachment would run if not smoothly, predictably. But that might not be the case. Instead, there might be a constitutional crises involving significant changes, like the Snowflakes' desire to eliminate the Electoral College. Be careful what you wish for.

I'm not really sure where the constitutional crises comes from. When there was the question of whether Bush or Gore won the election, that was a crisis.

For impeachment, it is pretty straight forward. If the House passes articles of impeachment it goes to the Senate which either convicts or acquits. Pretty either or.

There isn't going to any constitutional amendments passed. There isn't going to be any changes to the Electoral College. I don't see any issues (for impeachment) that would end up in the Supreme Court.

Now if they try to remove Trump using the 25 amendment, I could see that going to the Supreme Court.

When they subpoena Trump's Tax returns, he will resign
No way will he allow his tax returns be public domain

But they might just secure them without his approval, why not?
We all want to see them

No Impeachment Ruling will make it out of the House

I don't think it is probable, but I wouldn't totally rule it out. At some point, Republicans might decide that impeaching Trump cuts their losses.

At some point, something far more damning (than what we have seen so far) might come out.

At some point, Trump might see the writing on the wall and resign for "undisclosed health reasons". Which might or might not be the case.

I cannot believe John Gill is using the Snowflakes "designation" as an insult to liberals.

I would have thought that John Gill was above that.

Well, I guess I am wrong.

The fact that a silly, but apt, term gets you riled up makes your implicit assumtion that you can hurl insults in a good cause all the more pathetic.

Trump is looking for a way out. This job is too much work for him, and he grossly overestimated his ability to bullsh*t his way through it.

Use of the "snowflake" term says a lot more about the person who uses it than the person it is intended for. I also admit it saddens me to see people otherwise respected show that they too are subject to being petty.

I don't think DT is looking for a way out. I think he has told his lies so many times that he believes that he is being persecuted. I also think that he believes he is much more clever than "the rest of us," and it's not his fault that people were so gullible they took h at his word when he made campaign promises. After all, he wrote specifically in his "Art of the Deal" book that you just say what you need to in order to get the deal done. It is not a matter of ethics for the man. A good Trump White House gift might be an embroidered pillow with the words "All's fair in Love, War and Business." I bet he would love it.

Well, Werner, I suppose one thing we'll never hear Donald Trump proclaim is "My word is my bond."
