I dread checking this topic because - EVERY time - my first thought is, 'What has he tweeted now? ' or 'Which celebrity has he insulted?'

I can be the most over-sensitive, thin-skinned person imaginable, but I've got nothing on him.

Trump's tweeting is the last thing I pay attention to.... it's how the rest of our government acts as a result that concerns me... plus, I'm cautiously optimistic about the moral compass in this country. "Checks and balances" need to become much more than a catch-phrase/talking point.

I don't pay attention to his tweeting, nor do I follow him on Twitter, but news sites I follow inevitable cover a tweet of his. 

He's brought - what's the opposite of dignity? - to the Office of the President.

Supposedly, this new documentary is excellent for clearly spelling out the link between Rump and Putin.

Robbie - Disgrace? Shame? Embarrassment? Idiocy? Incompetence? Lunacy? Malfeasance? Treason? Divisiveness? Bigotry? Assault? Slander? Libel? Betrayal? Swampiness? Collaboration? Conspiracy? Collusion? Espionage? Embezzlement? Insidiousness? Incest? Nepotism? Self-Destruction? Dictatorship? Plutocracy? Oligarchy?

I can't quite think of the word... but he's brought SOMETHING to the office of POTUS.

And this morning 45 not only blames the Dems for spreading the "3000 died in Puerto Rico" "myth" but also slams Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan, who, in a rare moment of candor, said he thought he could beat Trump in an election which he immediately walked back.  Well, Trump took to Twitter and... you do the math.

For Trump to ignore the devastation - then dismiss the deaths of 3,000 American citizens as a political ploy is gross and shameful. 

And its just as shameful no republican will call him on it.

“Casualties don’t make a person look bad,” Paul Ryan told reporters. “This was a horrible storm.”

Agreed - but casualties as a result of mismanaging the response does make you look horrible and incompetent.  Such a weak, pathetic excuse for a human being... let alone an elected official.

“At least you got a new boat.” Our President seems to think finders-keepers is the rule of law.

Active Measures is an amazing documentary. Definitely worth the two hours. It gives a lot of background on Putin and his allies. Probably the best documentary I've watched this year.

The Republican leadership (such as it can be called that) told Trump not to pick Kavanaugh, so why are they such a bunch of absolute wimps about approving him a.s.a.p. now? The only reason Trump even wants him is he's the guy on record as saying presidents shouldn't be indictable/investigated/subject to the constitution, which alone ought to keep this mess the heck out of such a high court even if it were not under these circumstances. Could the situation be any less obvious? And yet it would take the turning up of an old sex assault as a last ditch reason for not approving him

Before casting self-righteous stones at Canada for protecting the integrity of it's food supply on dairy (and I am for bending a little on that), how about getting your own heavily subsidized industries in order like paying farmers not to grow and bail outs all over the place etc.? Plus just basic operations of government and law and order now are out of order which never used to be in such question. Yet still there are people, even in Canada, I presume heavy internet surfers, who believe 'fully transparent' Trump over a vast conspiracy of liars in the government/media/law enforcement out to get him! Bring back the people with experience and qualifications and boot out or lock up these long-standing con men caught again and again with foreign agents and paying supporters in various ways including directly. Money laundering, lying to federal agencies, tax evasion, colluding with hackers... and yet it'll be something to do with a porn star that probably does anything, so bizarre. :^(

The information in Active Measures should've been part of every regular news program rather than the endless cooking segments and movie trailers.
