So Trump fails to condemn blatant racism and makes the whole Roseanne thing about him.

Look at how shocked I am. This is my shocked face.

I don’t know why Trump is involved at all with a tv actor. Could you imagine us being concerned *how* a president responds to a sitcom actresses racist comments for literally any other president?

...are you serious?

Hey, conservatives, where's your "celebrities should stay out of politics" griping now? Just curious.

What a true shit show this has become. Just when you think it can’t get any worse... it does. And trump asking Kim k for advice? Lol the White House gone full reality tv mode!

And to those morons saying they want to boycott ABCand Disney because of the cancelling of Barr’s show can kiss my hairy ass (sorry for the visuals) . One plus side to this maybe there will be less trumpets at Disneyland next time I visit!

Is this actually true?? I find it hard to believe that even trump would do this! But then again it is trump and nothing surprises me anymore with trump.. Good god I thought his other tweet about Memorial Day was bad enough, this one takes the cake if it is true!

It's like a cartoon of someone careering down a steep street on an out of control skateboard. I really hope the US stays upright till the end of this guy's term.

The country is so much more fractured than before he took over. I don’t believe there’s a single person that could unite us together.

I’m afraid it’s only gonna get worse. While it’s important that Mueller does his job, and does it correctly/honestly, the longer it takes the more Trumps attacks will lessen any charges.

And if Trump is removed from office, what are his supporters going to do ?

Final note, Donald totally hacked his wife’s twitter account. No one has seen or heard from Melania in almost a month. What’s that all about ?

Trump is really trying to tell Cohen to hang in there.

And i agree, there’s way too much shit going on right now. There must be some news about to break so Trump needs a ratings boost.

The Europeans already have a 10-page list of items they will potentially slap tariffs on in retaliation, including:
Several common food products, including kidney beans, rice, cereal, peanut butter, etc.
Orange juice
Whiskey
Cigarettes and tobacco
Makeup and skincare products
Clothing such as t-shirts, jeans, cotton items
Several types of steel
Cooking appliances and other kitchen products
Rowing boats, canoes, yachts
Paper towels, toilet paper, tampons, diapers
Several types of shoes
Playing cards
Motorcycles

The Mexicans I think have already announced they will impose tariffs on flat steel, apples, certain cuts of pork and grapes and heaven knows what else.

The Canadians are finalizing their list.

Should be a fun time at the WTO.

i read that GWB tried the same thing re. tariffs back in 2002-2003 to look good at home and the EU slapped tariffs on oranges, which would have heavily affected Florida, and he ultimately caved

it's all so stupid

Why say it if you’re just going to apologize for it. Own it!

This administration and President hasn’t apologized for a single thing, and that’s the point. It puts the pressure on the other person to do so and then the optics are said person was in the wrong and Trump is not. No apologies so how can there be something wrong ?

My comment meant their orange juice was likely bottom of the barrel shit from concentrate, ie the orange juice in Europe tends to be awful (because yes, I’m a spoiled Floridian who is used to fresh oj).

Canada already hit him with some bit tarrifs! I am so happy our pm grew some balls and gave him the middle finger! I feel bad for the people affected by this, but if countries don’t start fighting back, then trump will just do whatever he pleases. He has to be stopped, someone has to stand up to him. I hope the rest of the countries in the tariffs list follow suit. Let see how long trump lasts when the rest of the world hates him and gives him the middle finger.
