    By now everyone should have seen excerpts from Trump's interview with the New York Times. What is hard to understand is why he gave the interview in the first place to a news outlet that he calls "fake news". And from the interviews with the NYT people, he did this interview without any aides or lawyers present.

    He has just dug himself an even bigger hole. Jeff Sessions will most likely have to resign because of what he said about him. But what next? Sheesh. I shake my head. This excerpt has made headlines:

    “Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself, which frankly I think is very unfair to the president,” he added. “How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, ‘Thanks, Jeff, but I’m not going to take you.’ It’s extremely unfair — and that’s a mild word — to the president.”

    Schmidt, I hope you did see the interview with Elizabeth Warren, in which she exactly said what I've been stating forever, that this is the most corrupt country in the world; she said Trump has 93 lobbyists who report/brief him. etc.

    She gave a score card of his 6 month in office; if I had that score I would be fired at once.

    About Sessions ; regardless of what Trump says he is still "loyal" because that is what they learn in the army and church in this country.

    About McCain: I feel sorry for him because he's also a victim of not having "term limits"; but regardless of that he's and remains an asshole in the way he treated Obama as well being an ridiculous GOP member. Also he would have voted for the Trump care bill. Thus he should be happy that he is not loosing his healthcare, but he is covered all the way!!

    The problem as I see it right now is the enablers, the apologists, the sycophants, and other flunkies who are keeping him afloat. At some point the "system" will work and correct the "biggest mistake" of electing a president ever. I just hope he doesn't do more damage before he leaves office in disgrace. But Mike Pence will in many respects be even worse.

    I have said this many times. The reason our democracy is seemingly failing now is the apathy and ignorance of the emotionally driven voters...and that includes just a whole bunch of liberals who engage in purity campaigns.

    We will have a course correction, if not in 2018, then certainly by 2020. The 35 percent do not speak for the majority of Americans.

    In any case, Sessions has just said he is not resigning. So will Trump fire him?

    Sorry to say the "system' does not work; I mentioned a million times what has to be fixed in the "system". As long as the fixes I mentioned will not be implemented, the mess will stay. You and Jared keep saying the "voters" are at fault; no it is not the voters, but the lack of education about an common sense world as well what is "honest" and what "corrupts".

    I said as well "capitalism" corrupts; no term limits is plain stupid; lobbyists and Super PAC's create corruption; using antique laws negates common sense in our present times by not amending those. Not vetting an President with proper laws as well having strict ethics laws which are enforced. Again Sessions somehow committed to "loyalty" to Trump in an statement today; no one jumped up and said, that as with Comey that he should stay "independent" The more I look at this situation Trump wants that the WHOLE government is "loyal" to him; he wants to be an Putin. Our "system" needs an total revamp to make it more efficient and "honest" as well "democratic" (which certainly is it not now) with proper laws and enforceable rules which apply to all including the rich and powerful.

    A disgraceful way to show Trump doesn't know how to hire his help.

    It's much worse than that Chet, he has a disdain for the legal system, unless of course if it benefits him. He must know or feel as if the walls are closing in on him. If a normal person were in his position, he would keep his fingers silent on twitter and keep his big mouth shut, probably disregarding his attorney's advice.

    The wrong person just resigned, Spicer, should have been Trump.
