Lol this is like a real life version of dumb and dumber. There are no words indeed. The fact that a president of the USA thinks this doofes was a viable candidate for this position is beyond scary.

The party seriously needs to stop worrying about civility. It's such bullshit. When the GOP wins elections by .01% they eviscerate the safety net, cut taxes for the rich, take away healthcare, etc. When the Democrats win elections by a wide margin they worry about bipartisanship and civility and so we end up with watered down policies like Obamacare, which while a step in the right direction, is nowhere near what we need to do to fix the healthcare system. I'm rambling right now but I'm so done with the Democratic Party and how they continually compromise their ideals in order to appeal to some nonexistent referee of the political system.

One of those challenges appears to be an inability to read 15 posts back...

I hope that's the case, too, but the problem is that November is still so far away yet. What the hell do we do until then? It feels like no matter what we do to try and wake the GOP up to do something about this shit, they won't listen (remember them literally running away from town hall meetings on the healthcare bill last year?).

So yeah, we could all take to the streets if Trump does fire Mueller, and we absolutely should do that. But it's going to feel like a futile gesture if the GOP doesn't give any sort of a shit.

So what can be done to get the message through to them before November? Can anything be done? Do they really think their jobs will be in danger next year if they don't fight Trump?

The GOP is so horribly pathetic it's incredible.

If the Democrats don't take back both houses of Congress in 2018 they should fold.

Exactly this! The gop is too cowardly to do anything in fear that it will have an adverse impact on them next year! Too bad they don’t know any better and they are hurting themselves more by doing nothing! I don’t see any major changes until democrats take control even if we go to the streets sadly.

The Democrats are some combination of incompetent and disingenuous, and really it's just a case-by-case basis on which trait is more prevalent.

Trump and Putin speak by phone after foiled St. Petersburg attacks - CNNPolitics

Great job by the CIA, and a good sign for international relations. Hopefully Russia will reciprocate w/ America and its friends if they have the opportunity.

Reads like *actual* fake news, with the Minority Report pre-crime scenario and never-before-used exclamation points.

All that was missing from that letter was the sentence "Putin also admired how large President Trump's hands truly are".

To be a fly on the wall when Trump's lawyers meet with Mueller.

I think it's imperative this week that we reach out to our elected officials and let it be known that we will not accept Mueller being let go.

It worked with the ACA, it may still work with the Tax Bill....but something needs to be done or the very institutions that have been built to serve this society will be torn down. Not sure where you go after that happens

This is all posturing. Firing Mueller does no benefit at this point in time. They're just attacking the credibility of the investigation because it's gone on for so long that it's starting to make them look bad (regardless of results). But, he's getting exactly what he deserves for firing Comey. Firing Comey created a 10xComey situation. Fire Mueller right now and you'll get a 100xComey situation. Probably from the senate.

You may be right.

But I ask this - when did this candidate, president-elect, and now president do anything that made sense?

How many "well this will surely sink him" moments have we had since November 2015?
