Trumps new favorite word? Veto. But he will fail at that just like he has failed at everything else in his life.

Respect to the reporter who stood up for his colleague. He probably spoke so quickly because he knew there'd be a backlash, but he did it anyway.

Trump is still the Trump we thought he was. The bigger problem is 2 candidates under federal indictment got elected. Kemp, Cruz, and DeSantoris won. Trump is just one man who has 2-6 years of influence left. There are millions of citizens out there letting this farce perpetuate for years to come by voting for candidates that show zero promise, are participating in criminal acts, and are overtly or covertly racist. Trump was and is just a virus. A lot of the population has been infected. How do we cure them and are they even willing to be cured? I'm not saying becoming a Democrat is a cure, but a return to civility, common sense, and fact checking is a minimum.

Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. IJS

🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔Americans are a troubling group of people to understand, socialism for the rich is tolerated . too big to fail, these people call it. But when it comes to Health Care you can afford to lose your mother or father, you can afford to lose your children. your household could fall apart, taking all your money to try and save the life of someone you love. And you are okay with the government not coming to your rescue. Very interesting 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Trump has a little over two months until the Democratic majority assumes power in Congress. In that time, Trump can cause all sorts or damage to this country unless he is checked by the Republican House and Senate (which won’t happen). Seeing how vindictive this pathetic excuse for a president is, I think he would delight in burning down as many safeguards to our democracy as he could. We might have had a chance for push back from the Supreme Court before Kavanaugh’s appointment, but now I don’t know. If things go down hill quickly, Pence and Trumps cabinet could grow a spine and use the 25th amendment to remove Trump as President (which I don’t see happening either). Putin is really getting his moneys worth from Trump and the Republicans.

Trump's firing Jeff Sessions is yet another red flag that he has something terrible to hide. The GOP was playing with fire and now they're getting burned. They'd better wise up and unite with the Democrats against Trump before everything becomes too little too late.

GrandPa was off his meds. He is really scared. This is why he fired Sessions immediately knowing the Democrat led house will start investigating him. The man is nervous, anyone who can’t see this is a moron. These are actions of a man who is loosing control.

The president just fired his AG for not protecting him from the Mueller investigation and replaced him with a guy who has branded the investigation a "lynch mob." If that isn't obstruction of justice, I don't know what is.

I wonder everyday what the world would be like if Bernie the wholesome birb whisperer were to lead this country. I’m sure the country would be a better place than it is now 🙌 Tbh I don’t understand why many republicans can’t admit Trump has divided the country. He obviously has created a stronger negative stereotype for both Democrats and Republicans, how can one be blind to that? How can you say the country is stronger than ever when we are completely divided? I am a democratic socialist, I believe that we should move fourth like our successful allies and bring some of the ideals to America (such as free equal healthcare for all). We can’t be afraid of change, and Trump is insighting fear into his followers about change. I don’t blame them for feeling strongly against topics like these as it’d scare me if I truly believed his words. And if you do, it doesn’t make you dumb or stupid. But just think and learn for yourself, don’t let anyone scare you from change❤️ Especially when in truth these changes WILL benefit the country as a whole in the long run. We can’t stay cozy how we are forever, things need to change as we as people learn more about what it means to be human. Not American, but human. It’s important to remember that overtime we become more civilized and aware despite what some may think and we can’t neglect learning more and doing more so everyone can live and pursue happiness. I don’t plan on staying here if this country stops progressing, because if I were to stay and complain about living here it wouldn’t change anything, so instead I’ll go somewhere where change is fruitful when I am able to. Ok ok, I’m done writing. It’s late and I’m sure I made a million shitty typos and grammar errors, but I’m too lazy to fix them XP Have a nice day/night to you all❤️

Acosta's press pass has been revoked because of alleged inappropriate touching (even though everyone knows it was because of the heated exchange in the press conference). Would have been plausible (even Sanders had a straight face when she said that) had the press conference not been TELEVISED FOR EVERYONE TO SEE. What now? Fake video? LOL

I don't feel a bit sorry for Sessions, because he resigned instead of making trump actually fire him, he has enabled trump to appoint the new guy directly , if he had gotten fired then the norm would have been for rosenstein to fill the vacancy until a nominee was approved...sadly first thing out the gate, rosenstein is no longer in charge of the mueller investigation...pfft..and I think pretty much everyone already knew that trump will blame the dems win or lose...anyone but himself...also this was planned when he knew that mueller was holding off releasing any more info until after the election...the slime bag he replaced sessions with has a checkered past..so he fits right into the trumplandia swamp..

Here's the thing about bullies... They have no imagination, no creativity at all. And they lack intelligence. Their sole motivation in life is to _'Get Away with It'._ That's all. Since Donld Trump is a bully, and he has thus far seemingly gotten away with so much, he believes he should be able to get away with... anything. He has no plan. Nothing. That is why he panicks whenever things don't go his way. Then does stupid things. Like firing someone, then trying to bribe them. He should have left Jeff Sessions in place, right where he was, indefinitely. But he is used to firing people when he doesn't get things his way. He has wanted to fire Jeff Sessions for a long time. And now he has... Too bad it probably doesn't make him feel any better. Soon, he will begin to feel a lot worse.

Didn't think Trump would panic till January.....the man is a lunatic. Funny...now that Sessions is fired, he can be subpoenaed to testify as to what he knows. Put you hand on the Bible Sessions...it's Mueller time. Cut his budget? At this point the FBI would do it for free.

His 3rd ever open press Press Conference was a disaster.. leaving Jim Acosta BANNED until further notice.. yet they had a Nazi on the White House front lawn and Sec. Sarah Sanders says "he was one of 25,000 public who came for the Fall Tour.. but NO, that's another lie. First, they do the tour in October, not November. Also, the tour does NOT go to the particular lawn he is pictured at via his own Twitter photos. Curious. Acosta gets banned for asking tough questions and they have a Nazi hanging out. Bologna.

I'm still trying to figure out who's actually calling the shots because we all know trump is too stupid to plan this far ahead. And how is this not obstruction if he appoints a guy to oversee the investigation into himself with clear knowledge said guy feels the same way he does and will likely kill the investigation? Sad day when Americans happily watch a quasi democracy turn into a fascist dictatorship

Trump - a man who always treats everyone with respect and civility! NOT! Ask him again about his groping women - ask him about bragging that he wants to sleep with his daughter - ask him about his bragging that he could murder someone in the middle of the street and no one would touch him! Ask him if he treated Ivana decently - ask him if he treated Marla decently - ask him if he treated Melania decently when cheating on her while she was pregnant! Did he treat those vendors and investors decently when cheating them out of their money for work done for him? Even his own city barely voted for him. Gee, must be a reason - and that reason is that those people know him MUCH better than does the rest of the country. Trump is a sleaze - from birth to the end of his life and thereafter! Nothing about him is decent - Nothing!

I wonder why the reporters let Trump talk to them like that. He works for the people; journalists report to the people. Why don't they remind him that they don't have to take that kind of condescending BS from a servant of the people? So sick of this attitude from a hyped-up grifter.

I actually busted up laughing when Trump said that they should get along with the democrats. Not a bad idea in of itself but coming from Trump, who blames the vast majority of his flaws/ problems on the Democratic party and the media, that statement is outright laughable. Then a few moments later, he's back to his usual hate-filled self. Deplorable and toxic that he's going to blame the democrats for every conceivable wrong in the next 2 years but at least he's openly honest about it. I think that one statement is the only thing i can trust about Donald Trump. Absolutely sad that the one thing I can trust from the president is hate and toxic vitriol but that is the Trump administration for you. An allegory for people who don't give a f*** about you or this country and one that will hopefully end soon. I am tired of the divisiveness of America, I am tired of stupidly ignorant people, and I am tired of bigoted people that can't get over their f***ing insecurities/ inferiority complexes. F*** me.

At some point, I’m not sure when, this all stopped being funny. I watched the late night talk shows for amusement and as a way to deal with the travesty. Now I’m almost afraid to turn on the TV. Listening to Trump bully and threaten, promise repercussions, and just the sound of his voice has me afraid and depressed. Where is the person telling him to stop? And can they? If we did a poll of Americans, how many feel this way now? When the light at the end of the tunnel turns out to be a freight train, what do we do?

I have always doubt Trump writes those tweets because he speaks and writes at 4th grade level, if we are lucky. Mr. Trump DOESN'T KNOW anything about anything. He is a sub-literate individual. Trump doesn't have the intellectual capacity to write tweets. So my belief is that he has a team of bums writing his tweets. I do not believe he wakes up at 3 or 4 AM to write messages. At his age? ...Poor old man already with signs of some sort of a mental issues. BTW-Where are Trump's tax returns, Fordham University transcripts, birth certificate, heel spur X-rays and childhood IQ tests, what is he hiding?

As a liberal, I'm actually glad that CNN gets banned. Now the republicans started a legal precedent. Even if CNN is out of the white house press, there will always be the other stations who will asked the hard questions. Sooner or later a DEM president will sit in the white house and no one can blame him/her if he bans FOX. Then we can go back to governing the country.
