The only one that I can think of is Ari Fleischer, from the George W. Bush administration.

The fact that we know all these names from Trump's White House, from Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Anthony Scaramucci, Stephen Miller, Sean Spicer, Reince Priebus and Jared Kushner really says a lot about the quality, or lack thereof, of the people Trump surrounds himself.

I've been saying this for a couple months. I remember a handful of people from other administrations, but the combined total is probably still a smaller number than the clowns I'm aware of that are in this clown car.

In the past 10 days, Mooch has lost a job, lost his wife, and wasn't there when his kid was born. And that is so unbelievably funny

On the one hand it is interesting to see statements like this coming from Republicans. On the other hand, Flake is up for re-election next year so it is likely also to cover his ass. And he voted in favour of taking away healthcare insurance from millions of people.

You make a good argument here, yeah. Very true. I can definitely see a lot of Republicans next year trying desperately to act like they were all above the nonsense that Trump brought with him this whole time, and I do hope that voters don't fall for it, and make a point to remember the ones who seemed to have no trouble being all buddy-buddy with him every other time he said or did something truly abhorrent.

And yes, even if they call Trump out now, it still won't absolve them of their own troubling stances on political issues. Especially if they don't show any signs of changing their platform in the near future.

But if this is a sign that at least some Republicans are genuinely learning from the mistakes and crappy decisions they've made these past years, if there are any Republicans who'll speak out against Trump because they genuinely can't stand what he's done not just to their party, but the nation as a whole, and who didn't support him from the get go, it'll be a start, at least. Something to hope for. We'll see.

I think we go to war with North Korea right before Mueller releases the findings of the investigation. We'll be told we can't remove a President during war time

So according to a new law suit, Trump helped Fox News push the Seth Rich conspiracy. This is insane.

Just all part of the conspiracy!!!

The guy has a text message basically showing Trump wanted the article published immediately.

But the defense of this? It was all a JOKE!!!

Guys, when Trump does something it's either a joke (if people don't like it) or it's considered policy

That is truly hideous. What the hell?

Do we have to wait for the Mueller report to finish before getting him out of here?

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is preparing to redirect resources of the Justice Department’s civil rights division toward investigating and suing universities over affirmative action admissions policies deemed to discriminate against white applicants, according to a document obtained by The New York Times.


For fucks sake

Or as one of John Stewart's Daily Show segments used to ask--

Have We Hit Bottom Yet!?

or something to that effect!

they are all so stupid

The White House has confirmed Donald Trump played a role in drafting a misleading statement about his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer.

On Tuesday, the press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, contradicted Trump’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, who said the president had had no involvement.

“The statement that Don Jr issued is true,” Huckabee Sanders said at the daily press briefing. “There is no inaccuracy in the statement. The president weighed in as any father would.”
