No. I think media attention is more helpful at this point. People who regret their vote need to be given a way to admit it. That's the way to take apart a cult.

Yes and I for one will welcome them back into the fold of sanity.

 

As for Trump being a racist, of course he is!! Does anyone even deny it at this point? He's shown it at every opportunity. I would argue that most people have bias whether they know it or not, but Trump has clearly embraced it. He enjoys hurting people.

Wow. And then something about HUD cuts being part of infrastructure. I'm not sure what that means.  Other than we are going to have more hungry, homeless people in our country, while he ultra rich rake in more money.

Everything about Trump's budget is designed by Putin to weaken this country. These cuts are exactly what we would see from a hostile country that has invaded us.

The other part is that for some of these people, Meals on Wheels is the only human contact they have for the day. So these people will not only starve but be more isolated than ever. THis is how we now take care of seniors and disabled?

So Mulvaney's quite empathetic then because he also decided that a single mom in Detroit and a coal miner should not have to pay for CPB which may cost taxpayers about $1.35 a year. Of course, that single mom would rather pay 121 times that to beef up the military unnecessarily though. It's also okay if she can't afford health care.

There is a line in "A Christmas Carol" where Scrooge remarks that the poor would be better off dead. This is exactly what a lot of conservatives think.

While Trump can apparently can get away with making things up and then doubling and tripling down and telling people to wait a couple of weeks for things to come out, I don't get why Spicer continues to trap himself in Trump's webs. He's cementing his reputation as a lying press secretary who says a lot of nonsensical things. And this new game they've started playing in which they claim something they said is news because news outlets reported on it is beyond tiresome. There is no point in asking for an investigation into wiretapping if the results won't be accepted when they don't have the right spin to them. Unlike his promise to lock Hilary Clinton up from which he quickly walked away, Trump can't accuse a former President of engaging in criminal activity then go around trying to blur the lines about what he said and hope it will be forgotten. He doesn't seem to want to admit he lied or was "misled" so he has no choice but to try to pretend he didn't mean it literally and dig that hole deeper, but I don't think anyone else has to help him dig except Hannity and other sycophants.

Both Spicer and Ryan are losing it today.

I don't think I've ever read so much gibberish coming from someone in such a position of power:

Trump predicted that he would be vindicated by evidence and hinted that he has proof of wiretapping in hand, though he declined to reveal it.

"Let's see whether or not I proved it. I just don't choose to do it right now. I choose to do it before the committee, and maybe I'll do it before the committee," he said. "Maybe I'll do it before I see the result of the committee. But I think we have some very good stuff. And we're in the process of putting it together, and I think it's going to be very demonstrative."

He sounds as if he is making some sort of a sales pitch and a presentation has to be put together and yet he's supposed to be referring to evidence of wiretapping. The whole thing is quite kooky since prior to this he claims to have learned about the wiretapping in quotes from Bret Baier of Fox News.

The WH had to apologize overnight to Great Britain for the lies SS told in the WH Press Briefing yesterday.
