    Everyone seems afraid of the loud obnoxious politician. He uses that crazy (but effective) voodoo called Social media. Maybe in 10 years we will look in that direction and see if we can figure it out. Probably not. We're very old white people. Wait ! So is Potus.... ? Who told him about the advantage of reaching out ?

    "People with narcissistic personality disorder believe they are superior or special, and often try to associate with other people they believe are unique or gifted in some way. This association enhances their self-esteem, which is typically quite fragile underneath the surface. Individuals with NPD seek excessive admiration and attention in order to know that others think highly of them. Individuals with narcissistic personality disorder have difficulty tolerating criticism or defeat, and may be left feeling humiliated or empty when they experience an "injury" in the form of criticism or rejection."

    This is half of the equation in terms of narcissistic success, the other half is a personality flaw in the individuals (aka followers) that love\addicted to narcissistic qualities in leaders and they perceive narcissistic leaders as being "God" Like with god powers that no one else has. Narcissistic leaders attract weak minded followers and people with corrupt\amoral intentions (aka trump's business partners)

    And trump's base is very different than other loyal political groups (liberal, conservative, etc), trump's base is far more like a cult of followers who worship him than a political group that is based on similar ideas an values. If trump flips on any issue, his base flips with him without questioning him. This allows him to lie and contradict himself and his base never blinks, they worship the man, not what he stands for, or what he values, nor doe they care if tells the truth. They don't care if has raped women, or commits crimes, now or in the future. He could have sex with teenage girls, and they would stay loyal to him. Trump can get away with just about anything, with only a single exception, he never ever can admit he is flawed or made a mistake. If he does, they will abandon him immediately. Trump never makes mistakes, never has, and never will... at least in Trump World. In Trump World, he is God, and there is no higher powers or authority.

    So Trump want's to investigate the Russian investigation? Huh? Think about it, if the man were not guilty of something, why does he get all bent out of shape over a little FBI informant? Because he and his minions were or are guilty of something?

    Juliani: "truth isn't truth"

    Especially if it came from his client Donald Trump. Early on, Trump denied he made payments, then he changed his story numerous times about payoffs.

    One thing that the Mueller investigation made very obvious is that the Russian government definitely interfered in the 2016, and the Trump team was open to receiving their help. If the Trump team had actively coordinated with the Russians, there is no question that they would be guilty of treason.

    The New York Times reported this morning that Rudy Guiliani will be traveling to the Ukraine in the near future to push for inquiries that could help Trump. One is the origin of the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The other is the involvement of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s son in a gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch.

    Rudy's motivation is to try to discredit the special counsel’s investigation, undermine the case against Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s imprisoned former campaign chairman, and potentially to damage Mr. Biden, the early front-runner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

    To quote Joe McCarthy, if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, then it's a duck.

    If it looks like, and sounds like, treason, then it is treason.

    It only shows how far the GOP is willing to go to undermine any DNC candidate. They even want to "jail" Hillary again.

    Sorry things are getting sick all the way.

    Calling Putin for 2 hours or having an meeting with him "alone" in Helsinki, in which he spilled the "beans" about everything "secret" here including the Mueller report does not seem to count as "treason". Where is the "tape" of both these conversations? How about the "translator" inquiry; never heard anything at all after the Dem's requested such????.

    Got my vote that there should be a law that all presidential conversations with any person not a citzen of the US be record. Such recording could be made classified so that leaders can speak freel, but knowing every word is on the record.

    We can always assume that Russians always record Trump, even if Trump makes sure the US does not. Now think about this for a moment, the Russians record the all the coversations, but also know Trump is not recording, sure sounds like a good opporunity to black mail Trump at some future date given that Trump loves to talk and say way too much. Trump: "Yeah, I had an affair with 16yr old, it was great, and I'd do it again, but she won't return my calls". Who knows what the Russians have recorded Trump talking about. How about nuclearly weapons information about allied countries that have them, but don't share that information with Russian. As Comey would say "Lordy, He has access to way to much classified information, and likely gives away for free"

    Thank God for a free press.

    After the New York Times published an article about Rudy's trip to Kiev, Rudy wisely decided to cancel the trip. Mr. Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, explained that he felt like he was being “set up,” and he blamed Democrats for trying to “spin” the trip.

    Rudy, when you tell the truth, it ain't spinning. Of course, if you still believe that truth isn't truth, you simply are not going to understand this concept.

    Arizona, don't worry they will find other means to "smear" people or "invent" something, just like any "dictator" or an crooked lawyer does.

    Rudy has cancelled his trip to Ukraine citing Democrats efforts to "spin" his trip.

    NYT: Rudy Giuliani Cancels His Trip to Ukraine, Blaming Democrats’ ‘Spin’

    These guys indeed live in an alternative reality where anything goes. Adam Schiff has called Giuliani's trip and plan to involve Ukraine to dig dirt on Biden's son and Mueller “immoral, unethical, unpatriotic and, now, standard procedure.”

    Trump is sending Pompeo to Moscow to talk to Putin; so what else is new? Likely uses this "avenue" to get info to smear Biden etc. Probably used as "mail boy" for Trump so whatever is discussed there, will be the same as all the other discussions of Trump, in "secret". I've got the feeling that Putin is coaching Trump on how to become an "real" dictator, but yeah all of this seems to be allowed in this country.

    If Joe Biden actually gets the nomination, I GUARANTEE you that FOX will start coverage on his son Hunter's involvement with a Ukraine gas company called Burisma Holdings, since if DOES appear that Joe did some improper meddling. It pales, of course, to what the Trump tribe has been doing, but it is going to come up anyway.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunter_Biden

    Here's a few key points:

    On April 18, 2014, Burisma Holdings announced Biden's appointment to its board of directors in a press release. Burisma is the largest non-governmental gas producer in Ukraine; it was incorporated in 2006 and is based in Limassol, Cyprus .

    Hunter Biden's father, Joe Biden, traveled to Kiev on April 22, 2014, and urged the Ukraine government "... to reduce its dependence on Russia for supplies of natural gas.

    The White House dismissed nepotism charges against Biden's son.

    Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion of loan guarantees if President Petro Poroshenko did not fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating corruption in Burisma Holdings; Shokin was fired on March 29, 2016.

    Since Russia didn't take kindly to Uncle Joe's trip to Kiev in April of 2014, they invaded the Ukraine in November of the same year.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_military_intervention_in_Ukraine_(2014%E2%80%93present)

    FOX will also bring up the China deal and Bohai Harvest.

    In December 2013 Hunter Biden, son of Joe Biden, travels with his father aboard Air Force Two to Beijing. ... Shortly after they return to the U.S., Hunter Biden’s firm receives a $1 billion private equity deal from the Chinese government. It later gets increased to $1.5 billion.

    Joe will turn 78 years old a few days after the 2020 election. Republicans are going to review his life history, and bring up as many "skeletons in the closet" as they can. If you look at Joe's ratings from various advocacy groups at the bottom of the article below, it's obvious that he is not going to get many votes from the evangelical Christians.

    Sorry to say, your story may be again another issue to hamper the Democrats. Just like we don't have shit enough in this country. Yes it is time that we get an candidate who's clean and has guts. Among 365 million people there should be at least one who can save this country from being swallowed up in Trumps swamp. Sure lots of candidates would be good choices if this country would not be in the situation as it is; but right now our situation is an self inflicted wound by not having decent laws nor an solid "vetting" system nor any "laws" for the limits of Presidents; thus we need an Napoleon or an Churchill type to save this country as well may be an "real" Democratic "bully" to fight Trump. Being "correct" and "decent" no longer works in this "Trump Party" environment.
