    Trump's approval rating keeps dropping and he appears to be losing Republican support. An open mic recorded Senators Reed "D" and Collins "R" discussing Trump in negative terms.

    “I swear, [the Office of Management and Budget] just went through and whenever there was ‘grant,’ they just X it out,” said Collins, a Republican senator from Maine.

    Senators Collins and Reed were heard on an open mic saying:
    "It’s just incredibly irresponsible.”
    “I think — I think he’s crazy. I mean, I don’t say that lightly and as a kind of a goofy guy.”

    They were talking about the Trump budget cutting programs across the board with no appraisal of worth or benefits of the programs.

    That's not all. He called for police to get tough on citizens who they arrest , several police department heads have come out and publicly rebuked Trump's call for police to get tough on America's citizens. One can only hope that the day Trump is arrested for lying and being a crooked bastard, that the persons arresting him afford him the same courtesies of being rough.

    Dutch, anybody with half a brain could see what Trump was and is. These people were, to borrow from Heinlein's character Lazarus Long, looking for the best of it. Had they even bothered to do some research beyond what the sales material said and the "blinding" glitter of the fool's gold of Trump's name they would not have gotten involved. They in essence were simply waiting to be fleeced. And anyone including his two kids who thinks that Trump's goal is not to fleece people is painfully gullible. That also includes the American electorate.

    For the people. From the constitution: "promote the general Welfare".

    Conservatism is the opposite of general welfare. Conservatism leads to an end rather than continuity.

    Scaramucci out. Didn't stay long enough to learn how to spell his name. 10th high level official booted in 6 months.

    Too bad he still has more than enough support within his base. And too bad forty percent of Americans were too lazy to vote in November because we would have never had to witness this shit show if a handful of more people in a few states got off their ass and went to the polls.

    Why Trump is dissapearing according to my theory of charisma vs the authoritarian theory. Authoritarians see something that resonated with their thinking. They will be dependable soldiers loyal to the end respecting their leader. On the other hand the people attracted to Trump through charisma don't know why they were supporting Trump. It was the compelling force of charisma that had their attention. They have no loyalty, they were embarrassed to say they supported Trump and now as they see what a despicable person he is they are drifting away. The authoritarians love despicable and they will be the solid 25% hanging on til the end. Trump is scraping the bottom of the 30s in his approval rating. He can build a wall of despicables around him and they will stop at nothing to stay in power. He can get very nasty but I don't think Trump can ward off attacks from all sides when his support implodes. The next month will be telling. There are going to be more Kelly type purges. How could Kelly determine in a few days that Scaramucci was bad. I think he was afraid of Scaramucci. ????

    I think it was an easy call to fire scarmoochie . He dug his own grave the minute he got loose in the press room talking about bannon sucking his own dick. He then bragged that he reports directly to the fat idiot.

    I am amazed that so many people allow the fat idiot to destroy them they practically fall over themselves to get to the execution block. They destroy themselves voluntarily. I understand Kelly Ann was at one time a normal person. That Sean Spicer was a professional reporter ? How can that be?

    How can a seemingly morally upright general accept a position on a sinking morally bankrupt ship ?

    Wrong Jared; VOTES don't count in this country; that is the reason.!! This is an self inflicted wound as I told you many times. Look at France an turnout of 83% because votes count. Not the stupid laws as here, where votes don't count.

    The word is he is ditching the Republican party . Now the repubs are a mess, they are not capable of governing. They forgot how to government some fifty years ago when they became a full-time crime family. They killed our president ,rigged our elections and robbed our treasury. They have started unending wars and caused death and destruction to millions. They are at the end of the road . They stole our social security trust fund. What is left for them to steal ? We are some twenty trillion in the hole and both parties are now crime syndicates. One wants to steal everything that they can and condemn the entire population to slavery and war and the other just wants to control the entire world if they have to kill everyone in it.

    Now the fat idiot they worked so hard to install by again , rigging our elections is a mad dog intent on being a dictator. He will dismissed congress. He will align himself with the military . He is taking orders from Putin. Can he be stopped ?

    This makes absolutely zero sense.

    If 83% of eligible voters showed up last November then we very likely wouldn't be bitching about President Trump every day and would rather be bitching about how President Clinton hasn't been able to achieve every single Democratic priority. You know...like many Democrats did during the Obama years.

    Votes most certainly count here. That is why we have a bumbling idiot-in-chief.

    If they didn't count then someone, somewhere, would have just ruled that the election didn't count.
