Donald Trump ‘fumed’ as he watched TV all day in the adult daycare center

Mueller Monday was a good day. I still feel a bit hungover from it, actually – I didn’t partake in any alcoholic beverages, I just consumed the news like MSNBC was lining up tequila shots. Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates, indicted and arraigned. Trump aide George Papadopoulos, charged and pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. The details around the charges brought against Papadopoulos are amazing too – it seems like he’s been “turned” by Bob Mueller for months now, and likely wore a wire. He met with Russian officials about the Russian cache of Clinton emails, and lied repeatedly to the FBI about it. There’s also someone involved in this story called “The Professor,” which gives the whole thing a very “spy games” feel. So what about Bigly? What was it like in the White House Adult Daycare Center yesterday? WaPo had a story, which you should read here. The broad strokes:

President Trump woke before dawn on Monday and burrowed in at the White House residence to wait for the Russia bombshell he knew was coming. Separated from most of his West Wing staff — who fretted over why he was late getting to the Oval Office — Trump clicked on the television and spent the morning playing fuming media critic, legal analyst and crisis communications strategist, according to several people close to him.

The president digested the news of the first indictments in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe with exasperation and disgust, these people said. He called his lawyers repeatedly. He listened intently to cable news commentary. And, with rising irritation, he watched live footage of his onetime campaign adviser and confidant, Paul Manafort, turning himself in to the FBI.

…For a president who revels in chaos — and in orchestrating it himself — Monday brought a political storm that Trump could not control. White House chief of staff John F. Kelly, along with lawyers Ty Cobb, John Dowd and Jay Sekulow, advised Trump to be cautious with his public responses, but they were a private sounding board for his grievances, advisers said.

“This has not been a cause of great agita or angst or activity at the White House,” said Cobb, the White House lawyer overseeing Russia matters. He added that Trump is “spending all of his time on presidential work.”

But Trump’s anger Monday was visible to those who interacted with him, and the mood in the corridors of the White House was one of weariness and fear of the unknown. As the president groused upstairs, many staffers — some of whom have hired lawyers to help them navigate Mueller’s investigation — privately speculated about where the special counsel might turn next.

“The walls are closing in,” said one senior Republican in close contact with top staffers who spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak candidly. “Everyone is freaking out.”

Trump is also increasingly agitated by the expansion of Mueller’s probe into financial issues beyond the 2016 campaign and about the potential damage to him and his family. This portrait of Trump and his White House on a day of crisis is based on interviews with 20 senior administration officials, Trump friends and key outside allies, many of whom insisted on anonymity to discuss sensitive internal matters.

[From WaPo]

“…Based on interviews with 20 senior administration officials…” That has been one of the surest signs that the Bigly White House is Titanic-esque – the fact that SO many people within the administration are regularly leaking to what Trump calls “fake news.” But yes, I can just imagine it – Trump sitting in front of the TV, yelling and talking to himself as Precious Ivanka watches him from the doorway, waiting patiently to do a “drop-by” for old time’s sake.

Anyway, here are a few more things I wanted to mention, stuff that we should keep our eyes on. One, I think Mueller is going to take down some additional “small fish” before he gets to the bigger fish. But one of the big fish going down next would be Attorney General Jeff Sessions. I just don’t see how Sessions makes it to 2018. Two, we need to prepare ourselves mentally and emotionally for the day – and it could be happening very soon – when Trump fires Bob Mueller. Vox has a handy guide for what will happen WHEN Trump fires Mueller.

    ‘presidential work’ lmao

    • Ankhel says:

      Read: ice cream and golf.

    • FLORC says:

      He’s presidenting. Presidential work is hard you guys! This reminds me of when everyone referred to adulting as a task. Because youre an adult your acts are adulting. And adulting is tough stuff…

      But seriously…. break out the tiny handcuffs for baby fists.

    • Embee says:

      “This has not been a cause of great agita or angst or activity at the White House” translation: The WH is extremely agitated and manic over the “great agita” of the Mueller indictments

    • ELX says:

      This whole thing is turning into a giant AML case. They never thought they’d be in the WH. Trump and Kushner just wanted that Russian and Chinese money and that money needs a laundry service.

  2. Radley says:

    I hope he’s upset. I hope he’s scared. I hope he’s losing sleep. This miserable sob deserves every bad thing that’s coming to him and then some.

    • Megan says:

      Trump is most dangerous when he is cornered. I am very nervous about how he will respond.

      • Tanguerita says:


      • Kitten says:

        Seriously the dude has the nuclear codes FFS.

        And his supporters? They’re all short-circuiting. *IF* (and it’s still a huge IF) he’s impeached I really do fear a revolt.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I agree. He isn’t rational on a regular day, but when he feels he’s backed into a corner or when his ego takes a big blow, he’s at his most dangerous.

      • Who ARE these people? says:

        How can his supporters get too upset if they don’t believe the investigation is even real or miss key facts due to media illiteracy?

        I hope HRC has top security. I bet she still has to schlep around in a bullet proof vest. Ugh.

      • Kitten says:

        I keep seeing his supporters tweeting him with “Don’t worry Mr. President we got your back” and it just freaks me out. Like, HOW do you have his back? The fact that so many of his supporters are armed Alt-Right/KKK/militia-types really worries me.

    • Christin says:

      I think about how small contracting firms felt when allegedly strong armed to take less money on projects. Hope the squirming is real now.

      Financial crimes and tax shenanigans, folks. That’s what will really stick to this bunch.

      • Kitten says:

        This is such a good point, He’s been bullying people for his entire life. It must be destroying him to no longer be in control.

      • Christin says:

        And those allegations usually contained a threat along the lines of, I’ll tie you up in court for years and bankrupt you. It’s sort of fitting that now it looks like the shoe is on the other foot.

      • Mismom says:

        Financial crimes and tax shenanigans That would be the perfect title for a book about all of this mess. P.S.: The word shenanigans isn’t used nearly enough!

      • Christin says:

        It sounded better and less specific than evasion. 😀

      • holly hobby says:

        You know in the end he’ll be hauled down for financial crimes. That is the easiest way to remove him from office. I bet he regrets running now. He should have stayed a private citizen and kept counting his laundered money.

        I am nervous for Mueller. There’s a chance this orange lizard will fire him and Congress will just sit on their hands. F—Turtle face won’t even bring the bill protecting Mueller’s job to the floor for a vote.COMPLICIT.

        These goons should know that just because Mueller is gone this investigation is not. It’s filed in court and the ball is already rolling down the hill. You can’t stop it now.

        Rotting Flesh Bannon is advising Orange Lizard to cut off funding for Mueller’s office (I don’t even know if that is legal). There’s already talk on Twitter that if they do that citizens will crowdsource funding for Mueller to continue.

      • jetlagged says:

        There is no way a gofundme would work. It’s not only about funding. An effective investigation needs subpoena power and the ability to file actual criminal charges. Both of those things can be wiped away by a simple memo signed by Deputy AG Rosenstein. Mueller goes back to private life, and any Justice Dept. employee assigned to the investigation moves on other things or they lose their job. I’m not saying Trump would do it, but there really is nothing stopping him except for public opinion.

  3. Nicole says:

    When (and if) trump fires Mueller it’s over. There will literally be anarchy in the streets as it will be a constitutional crisis of the highest order. No one will escape unscathed by that point including the complicit GOP. Also reminder that even if he pardons people for fed crimes we all know NY state is working on their own charges and no pardon for those.
    Expect absolute chaos is he dares go there.

    • third ginger says:


    • Tanguerita says:

      Don’t think so. How many times have we all believed that this or that would be the last straw to break the camel’s back? And yet, we cruised past Comey’s firing, multiple bans, Charlottesville, foreign governments (still) paying Trump, jewerly line, clothing line, climate, Kushner, all his horrible children doing horrible things, immigration crackdown… I could go on forever. As long as Republicans refuse to step up and challenge him, nothing will happen.

      • Nicole says:

        I kinda agree but Comey actually should’ve been fired before the election for violating the Hatch Act. Now firing Mueller WITH the probe underway and the charges being filed…it will be a constitutional crisis.
        And I’m not just going on belief there are reporters that have been interviewing congressmen who are afraid of the blowback if he does fire him.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah I tend to think this too and this is one of MANY reasons why I just cannot be gleeful right now. Even on social media, I see so many people just going about their lives, busy with kids, work etc that simply don’t seem concerned about our current political climate. These are probably the same people who don’t bother voting.

        I hope I’m wrong but I’ve just been so pessimistic lately.

      • Annetommy says:

        And polls show that the vast majority of Trump supporters wouldn’t be very bothered if it was proven that he had colluded with Russia. Became hey, what liberal elite president hasn’t plotted and schemed with a hostile foreign power to cyber corrupt the election?

    • I'mScaredAsHell says:

      Supposedly several Congressional Republicans are preparing a counter offensive against Mueller to launch this week. The purpose is to discredit Mueller and force his resignation.

      • JenB says:

        What a bunch of slimy weasels.

      • Nicole says:

        Again forcing a resignation (good luck on that one) and firing them have two different outcomes. They know that hence the counterattack

      • holly hobby says:

        They should really stop. Getting rid of Mueller will not stop this case. It’s already filed in criminal court. You can’t walk away and ask for a dismissal. On what grounds?

    • Indiana Joanna says:

      Agree, Nicole. It’s actually a blessing Mueller took over the investigation from Comey.

    • erbs says:

      He will not fire mueller.

    • trumptrickle says:

      Maryland is working on state charges against Kushner and the Trumps as well. Slumlording (appliance failures, mold and mouse infestations) and abusive debt collection practices.
      If NJ election next week goes as expected, there will be a new state government much less protective of Trump.

  4. grabbyhands says:

    He added that Trump is “spending all of his time on presidential work.”

    Huh. Well that would be a first.

    I expect the firing to come very soon now that Mueller is making good on his intentions to seek indictments. That is why, as satisfying as it is to watch him melt down, I can’t bring myself to celebrate to loudly. Because I know he is waiting to torpedo the whole thing and the GOP will sit back and watch it happen because they still have an agenda to force down everyone’s throats.

  5. RBC says:

    But wouldn’t firing Mueller just throw more gasoline on this dumpster fire? If 45 and others are so “innocent” wouldn’t firing him just make them look guilty and that they are hiding something? What a mess

    • Esmom says:

      Yes. But Bigly doesn’t seem to understand that anyone who was truly confident of their innocence would embrace an investigation, not discredit it.

    • Veronica says:

      Ah, but then it puts the investigation in the hands of Congress, and guess who controls Congress right now? Republicans are in full-fledged sunk cost fallacy mode right now.

      This is why I said everybody who didn’t vote or voted third party is as much responsible for this mess. The least you should have done is showed up and voted for the Senate/House elections. Now the rot has infiltrated all branches of government. There is no check and balance.

      • Jerusha says:

        It’s interesting that very few of those third partiers show up here anymore with their smug “I voted my conscience and Hillary is just as bad as trump” nonsense.

      • Tara says:

        Us third-partiers know you all will defend your echo chamber to the death and will cling to this divisive dialogue until we have Trump 2020. Smug? Lol. Turn away from the mirror.

      • Jerusha says:

        Go your blissful way, Tara, in thinking third parties will ever be a force in U.S. politics except as spoilers. Maybe third partiers should work on local levels-governor, lt. governor, state AG, school board member, city council, county commissioner, etc., before worrying about the big one. When you’ve got people in all those positions then I’ll respect you. Otherwise, you’re nothing.

      • Esmom says:

        Nope, sorry Tara. You don’t get to blame the Hillary voters for Trump.

      • Veronica says:

        For the record, I am a registered independent. I just understand the stakes of the last election and didn’t f*ck around with my vote where the presidency and Congress was concerned. I’m angrier at the people who didn’t vote than I am the third partiers, but I have a special brand of disdain for the people who equated a Clinton presidency for a Trump one and used that to justify this nonsense. I know way too many people who mistook their apathy and privilege for “being principled” on the last election while consciously skating on the belief that the rest of us would keep the worst at bay.

    • Erica_V says:

      Yes, but they don’t care about that. And as they move further into self preservation mode they will care even less about how it looks. All they will care about is how to avoid jail time.

  6. Beth says:

    Does Trumps team still call the Russia scandal a “nothingburger?” Mueller served the most juicy and delicious nothingburger yesterday. I’ll take another one like it, Mr. Mueller

    • Ankhel says:

      Yes. Trump hardly knew those people…

      • Esmom says:

        Yeah, they were unpaid volunteers. Lol.

      • Megan says:

        I was an unpaid volunteers for Hillary’s campaign and for some reason they never gave me Podesta’s email address.

      • Pedro45 says:

        Trump was Mariah Carey all day yesterday.

      • Esmom says:

        Pedro45, exactly. “I don’t know her,” is all I could think of! LMAO.

        How will he respond when they come for Jared, though?

      • Olenna says:

        LOL! @Pedro45, thank you! I needed that laugh b/c nothing about this shitstorm that’s circling drumpf is funny.

        @Ankhel, if you think he’s so removed from this mess, then maybe you can explain why he’s beating his “liddle” tiny fists so hard while trying to deflect to Hillary and tweeting “no collusion” over these indictments.

      • Sam Vimes says:

        Just waiting for the day he says “Jared Kushner, nah never heard of ‘im!” :D

    • swak says:

      Still do. Trump tweeting this morning that Manafort’s lawyer said there was no collusion and that Papadopolus was a low level volunteer named George (a story they all put out yesterday).

      • Megan says:

        Jeffrey Toobin speculated that Papadopoulos has been wearing a wire for the past sixty days. If that is true, we’ll soon find out how low level he was.

      • Rapunzel says:

        That low level George was named foreign policy adviser. And Trump’s on tape praising him.

      • swak says:

        @Rapunzel, and it was said that the Russians did NOT get in touch with him until they knew he was a foreign policy adviser. They are trying to discredit this in what ever way they can.

      • trumptrickle says:

        Can’t wait for SNL to do a skit imagining all the embarrassing, sleazy and damning things picked up by George Papadapapapadapadopoulos’ wire over two months.

    • Tara says:

      That’s weird. I thought Hillary said that. I get my Russian scandals mixed up.

      • Kitten says:

        “Russian scandals”.. Pizzagate…Seth Rich…just keep throwing shit at the wall and see what will stick I guess.
        Fox News thanks you for being a good foot soldier.

      • H says:

        How ’bout this, Tara? Put both of them in jail. Both candidates might have been in bed with the Russians.

        If Trump fires Mueller, this country is doomed. You’re probably not old enough to remember Nixon and Watergate, but I am. Not liking Hillary is fine, she wasn’t my favorite pick either, I wanted Biden, but wishing a constitutional crisis because you believe Fox News is reporting the “truth,” is dangerous and shows a lack of how to discern propaganda.

      • Kitten says:

        How was Hillary “in bed with the Russians”? I seriously want to know, especially since I spent about two hours yesterday reading about this “scandal” and found absolutely nothing that proved this. So I’m all ears if you have anything new or something that maybe I missed.

        This is what I know so far (Vox did a great job laying it out):

        1. The mines, mills, and land the company holds in the US account for 20 percent of the US’s uranium production capacity, not actual produced uranium.

        2. The State Department was one of nine federal agencies and a number of additional independent federal and state regulators that signed off on the deal.

        3. President Barack Obama, not Clinton, was the only person who could’ve vetoed the deal.

        4. Since Russia doesn’t have the legal right to export uranium from the US, its main goal was likely to gain access to the company’s uranium assets in Kazakhstan.

        5. Crucially, the main national security concern was not about nuclear weapons proliferation, as Trump has suggested, but actually ensuring the US doesn’t have to depend too much on uranium sources from abroad, as the US only makes about 20 percent of the uranium it needs. An advantage in making nuclear weapons wasn’t the main issue. PolitiFact said: “the United States and Russia had for years cooperated on that front, with Russia sending enriched fuel from decommissioned warheads to be used in American nuclear power plants in return for raw uranium.”

      • Annetommy says:

        Just remember one scandal’s real and one’s fake Tara. Donald and Hillary, respectively. That’ll help. DR and HF.

  7. third ginger says:

    Kaiser, it’s a known fact that you can get high on important news. LOL I was laughing earlier this morning at an account of what FOX covered yesterday: cheeseburger emoji, Dean Cain’s opinions about how millennials are spoiling Halloween, nonsense about Obama ruining military flyovers at sporting events. I hear Shep Smith alone rose to the occasion. How in God’s name does he stand it?

    • Beth says:

      OMG. The cheeseburger emoji. They were trying so hard to distract watchers from the damaging Republican news, that they actually had a conversation about if the cheese should be on the top or bottom. Hilarious.

  8. Aiobhan Targaryen says:


    I don’t know what is better: Dump and co stewing in their own self destructive and racist stew while they wait to see who is next, or every last one of the Russia hack deniers on both the left and right silence this morning. Since I am greedy I will say both.

    Even if Mr Mueller is fired it won’t matter because he has all the information he needs to take Dump and co down. I don’t think he will try to fire Mueller though.

    I really want Sessions to go down next because he has been the most successful in Dump’s administration at hurting people. I need him to be taken down the hardest more than Dump for some reason.

  9. Tanguerita says:

    I expect Bigly to fire Mueller any day now. And the damn f…king Republicans won’t do a thing to prevent it. So much for growing a pair, Bob Corker, Graham, Flake.

  10. teacakes says:

    Good luck, American celebitches, I hope this is just the first step on the road to ending what probably feels like a long national nightmare. I hope Mueller is able to do what he should, Stranger Things weekend followed by this is quite the high (flashbacks to David Harbour’s ‘fight the monsters’ SAG speech).

  11. Wow says:

    Oh? Trump fuming due to events from yesterday, you say? 🤔I hope this is true because it warms my heart. 😊

    • Giddy says:

      We need a Treasonous Trump bingo game. Every time you cover a square you drink your wine. Squares could be: Ivanka parades her darling children. Trump fires Mueller. Congressional Repubs find a spine and start impeachment proceedings. Sarah H. Sanders has major meltdown, screams “fake news” at reporters. Trump strokes out watching news.


  12. Chef Grace says:

    Oh please. The orange white supremacist will fire Mueller. Then he and his fellow republicans will finish up by taking the constitution they have spent the year shitting on, wrap Mueller and Hillary and others who dared oppose them in it, and set it ablaze and no one can stop them.
    This is the end of democracy as we know it.
    They have carefully been removing anyone who could have opposed them.
    I am terrified. I am sick with fear and dread.

    • Tanguerita says:


    • I'mScaredAsHell says:

      Agree. Once we go over the precipice, there’s no turning back. Democracy is a fragile thing and it is being systematically destroyed.

    • Kitten says:

      I’m so with you.

    • Erica_V says:

      There is literally no one left willing to stop him so yeah this is how I feel too. I love seeing something from the investigation but Dump is getting more and more unhinged everyday and I’m scared to death about where he goes from here.

      One of the radio stations I listen to did an emergency broadcast test on Sunday night but it was just the long beeps at first took them forever to finally say this is a test and I honestly had a small panic attack and thought this is it. This is the notice that we’ve gone to war. I didn’t realize I was that on edge.

      • MARIA F. says:

        The only one able to stop it are the voters. Masses on the street, general strike etc. If he fires Mueller and people keep going about their day to day business and only vent on twitter. nothing will happen. If you cannot trust your government, you have to fight it.

  13. kodakay says:

    Trump and his family is going DOWN! Where there’s smoke; there’s fire.

  14. Rapunzel says:

    Look for Trump to fire Mueller when he goes after Jared. Or maybe at Thanksgiving, trying to hide it over the holiday.

  15. Indiana Joanna says:

    “Fuming media critic”

    “Prepare ourselves for when drump fires Mueller”
    My heart stopped.

    This is such an evil administration that thought they deserved to profit monetarily from their already established Russia/Putin relationship and then wrangle every benefit from the American public for themselves and the Mercers and Kochs.

    drump and his parasitic barnacle staff.

  16. Wow says:

    Quote: He added that Trump is “spending all of his time on presidential work”

    Me: LOL! Wasn’t he tweeting up a toddler tantrum?

    • FLORC says:

      Yes! And it was glorious! I got Twitter just to follow his mess of a private account… not disappointed. Everything is an emotional, uninformed reflex response like a toddler. The baby thinks it’s smarter than the rest, but no one is buying it.

  17. Lolo86lf says:

    The White House, GOP, Fox News, DT, Ann Coulter and the rest of them deplorable DT supporters are all in DENIAL. They refuse to admit the connection between the Russia collusion and DT’s presidential campaign.

  18. Jag says:

    What scares me is that they’d better take Pence down, too. Pence is worse than Trump in my opinion, due to his fuming hatred of LGBTQ people.

  19. Eric says:

    Along with Sessions (for perjury and OoJ) there’s bigger fish in Don Jr and Jared who conspired with Manafort for dirt on HRC with the Russians.
    Not only are Manafort and Gates racing to flip first (for lower sentences), but all WH staff, especially lower-level ones, are thinking about bailing. I see a host of resignations coming in the next two weeks. The WH will say this is NOP for a WH to lose half of its staff, but we will know!!
    Deep down we will know.

  20. Raina says:

    I wonder if they’ll let Trump sext Ivanka from prison.

  21. Amaria says:

    For a second there, I hoped they sent Bigly to some adult care center for good.
    Would be a good place for him, he could throw tantrums there all day without endangering a nation/a world. I’d pity co-residents, though.

  22. lightpurple says:

    According to today’s Twitter rant, “few people knew the young, low-level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar.” Of course, one of those few was Orange Voldy himself who appears in several pictures of meetings with George. It also seems that George has been wired for sound since July so it doesn’t matter what George says, just what the tape recorded.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, and apparently he praised “young George” in an on the record interview. I love Twitter for posting the receipts so quickly in response to Trump’s garbage.

      • third ginger says:

        Yes. George, along with “Carter Page, PHD” were the first names Trump revealed to reporters as part of his foreign policy team.

      • Giddy says:

        Carter Page was literally frothing at the mouth last night on MSNBC. Chris Hayes actually said he was worried about how much Page was talking.

  23. Lindy says:

    I keep oscillating between a tiny shred of optimism that we’re finally getting something, and waves of despair because nothing seems to be a real threat for Trump.

  24. IndifferentCat says:

    How is it okay that Trump can fire the man investigating Trump? There has to be some stop that means legal work cannot be hindered?

    • Tara says:

      @Indifferentcat: it does seem SO wrong. I know it’s a political appointment but wonder if there should be more to that process… some checks and balances.

      • Who ARE these people? says:

        And thru history there mostly has been but with this Republican majority and this Supreme CT, the numbers aren’t good AND The Congressional majority has no democratic scruples.

    • Annetommy says:

      I’ve read the firing would technically have to come from Rosenstein. Would he have the balls to resist? Presume If he did trump would fire him, and then put in a puppet to fire Mueller.

  25. Green_eyes says:

    Trump’s twitter rants yesterday morning & this morning are showing his fear. Best Christmas present ever would be Trump & Administration’s Indictments & Impeachment by 12/17. Take Pence & the whole crooked crew down. One can hope. God I miss the Obamas soooo much!

    • Luca76 says:

      Actually his deafening silence after GP was announced told me everything. They were in total shock about that one.
      As for Sessions. Its an irony because potentially indicting Sessions could be the thing that destroys the IC. Since the new AG could potentially fire Mueller without the constraint of being recused like Sessions.

      I highly doubt there will be impeachment before the new House is in. I think its more realistic to expect spring 2019 at the earliest.

    • Giddy says:

      It’s interesting that Pence was Manafort’s suggestion. So is Pence worried?

      • Luca76 says:

        Pence is actually circumstantially implicated in everything. The people afraid of Pence as president don’t realize that if there was an impeachment does happen and everything gets exposed Pence was in the room for half of it. I think we’d get Paul Ryan or some other awful Republican as president who would be the equivalent of a Gerald Ford. Lame Duck on arrival.

  26. JenB says:

    It was satisfying to read the Faux News faux headlines yesterday. Getting concerned about what will happen when Trump fires Mueller though. Only one week until election day too-wonder if recent developments will sway more people to the democratic ticket.
    Happy Halloween Celebitches!

      There aren’t many major elections 2 governorships (Virginia and New Jersey) then mostly local elections. We have to keep our eyes on 2018 when the House is up. It’s pivotal that we win the House.

        @Luca78 True-I thought that the Alabama special senate election was Nov. 7th but I see that it’s scheduled for Dec. I live in VA and have been inundated with campaign ads but just recently saw a TV ad to impeach Trump. It was the first of that type I’d seen, interesting times.

      • Jerusha says:

        @JenB. December 12th. VOTE DOUG JONES!! Vote for sanity! Start to flip the Senate. We have to regain majority from the nutbags who will destroy this country. If you’re not in Alabama you can still support Doug. The Moore crazies will be getting vicious soon.

        If we could elect a Democrat from ALABAMA, FOR GOD’S SAKE, that should send a message to the Repub invertebrates in Congress.

        Jersuha, sending all my best wishes down south.

        Thanks, TG! This is Doug’s platform for anyone not clicking on his link.

        I’ll take those values to the U.S. Senate and work hard for all the people of Alabama:

        Everyone has the right to quality, affordable health care.
        We must restore Alabama’s trust for its elected leaders.
        I will defend a woman’s right to choose and stand with Planned Parenthood.
        All children deserve a first-class education regardless of where they live.
        College must be affordable without burdening a student with overwhelming debt.
        I believe in science and will work to slow or reverse the impact of climate change.
        It is past time we raise the minimum wage to a livable wage.
        Women must be paid an equal wage for equal work at all levels.
        Voter suppression is unAmerican – we must protect voting rights.
        Discrimination cannot be tolerated or protected. America is best when it builds on diversity and is welcoming of the contributions of all.

      • JenB says:

        Yes I agree with TG-best of luck! I’ve heard this is a competitive election which is incredible for Alabama.

      • Reindeer says:

        Doug Jones and Roy Moore are tied right now, at 42% each (with an obvious margin of error). So, there is hope!!!!

        I’m in Alabama, and I’m voting for him :)

        And side point… I Can’t WAIT for Sessions to go down. He is as corrupt as they come, and has been for years.

      • Jerusha says:

        Yep, Reindeer, I’m in Mobile where Sessions started his sorry career. We’ve always known he was trash. He was born in Selma, 18 when the Marches occured. I bet somewhere there is a photo of him in the crowd, jeering and throwing things at the marchers.

        Sometimes I drive around neighborhoods to get an idea of the mood. In the rich neighborhoods there are a lot of Doug Jones signs. I think, I hope, that the Country Club/Junior League Repubs are as repelled by Moore as we are.

        Local elections Count!

    You bet he’s worried. His puny little Mercer/ Koch fueled reputation is at the very least tarnished.

  29. Mermaid says:

    Heard he was rage eating all day. Yesterday was awesome!!! Actually had a conversation with a Trump supporter family member and for the first time I felt like he had turned against him. Here’s hoping it’s the beginning of the end and the whole family goes to prison.

  30. adastraperaspera says:

    He has never worked a day in his life. All he’s ever done is sit around and watch tv, tweet, golf, do cocaine and abuse women and girls. Perfect guy to be a “useful idiot.” I’m enraged that we are paying for this criminal to sit around in our White House. This farce cannot be over soon enough!

    P.S. Indictment Day was AWESOME!

  31. IlsaLund says:

    I’m hoping that NY state files charges against Trump for tax evasion and money laundering and his other financial crimes. If Mueller gets fired, at least Trump won’t be able to weasel out of any state charges. And it maybe that financial crimes and perjury will be what brings must of these people down.

  32. why? says:

    It would also be interesting to see how Mueller plans to deal with Sarah(spreading false narrative of Comey’s firing and Russia), Nunes(helping the Dotard obstruct justice on several occasions), Gowdy(hijacking the Trump Russian investigation by focusing on the dossier), Chuck(hijacking the Trump Russian investigation by going after Comey and Hillary), and Graham(hijacking the Trump Russian investigation by going after Comey and Hillary). I don’t trust Gowdy or Graham because they are saying one thing, while doing something completely different. They gave interviews and statements about how the Dotard should let Mueller do his job and how the Dotard will pay dearly if he fires Mueller, but how many times have we seen Gowdy and Graham interfere in the Trump Russian investigation in the House and Senate? The press needs to call them out for their hypocrisy and complicity.

    Yesterday someone said that the WH and Dotard were relieved because it wasn’t Flynn who was indicted, but I don’t understand how that could be a good thing because since Flynn wasn’t indicted, could it mean that it’s because he is cooperating with Mueller?

    We wouldn’t be in this place if the GOP, Nancy Pelosi, and Paul Ryan would just stop being so complicit. Our 2016 election was hacked, the bots are trolling polls( i.e. 58% think that the Dotard is intelligent, 46% of GOP want the US to do a preemptive strike against NK, or very low numbers for those GOP members who criticize the Dotard), and facilitating cultural wars( organizing protests , impersonating groups, and posting hashtags), so how do any of them not expect for this to happen again in 2020? It’s time to impeach both the Dotard and his sidekick Pence.

  33. JRenee says:

    This has me even more concerned. He can pardon all involved. He can fire Mueller for special cause and Congress is still in bed with this shit show :-(

    • Sophia's Side eye says:

      He can’t pardon state charges though, and Muellers been working with New York State. Fingers crossed!

  34. Tulsi 2020 says:

    Firing Mueller wouldn’t be the most outrageous thing President Clickbait has done, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he did it and then quickly followed it up with a war against North Korea as a distraction. On the other hand I don’t see the point of firing Mueller as the investigation would only get handed on to someone else.
