    The article below just popped up this morning, and is worth reading.

    Here's a quick summary of the top 5

    1. The Mueller Report

    Trump — with the help of Attorney General Bill Barr — insisted that the Mueller Report was a total vindication, and his “no collusion, no obstruction” talking point was echoed endlessly by his allies at Fox News, but Trump mischaracterized the report.

    2. The Ukraine scandal and impeachment

    The Mueller Report, in a sense, was a “get out of jail free” card for Trump. That emboldened him to make the call to the Ukrainian president ONE DAY AFTER Mueller testified to congress

    3. Trump’s racist attack on The Squad

    In July, Trump tweeted that the four non-white congresswomen known as The Squad — should go back to the countries they originally came from.

    4. The imprisonment or prosecution of Trump’s closest allies

    Veteran broadcast journalist Dan Rather has described the list of Trump allies who have faced criminal charges as the president’s “flock of felons”

    5. The withdrawal of US troops from Syria

    Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Lindsey Graham (almost always a vigorous defender of Trump) seldom agree on much of anything, but one thing they do agree on is that Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northeastern Syria and abandon the United States’ Kurdish allies in that region was an incredibly bad one.
