Yep. Saw an article yesterday stating the White House was actually pretty positive at the moment as this debacle has demonstrated that even full on collusion with the Russians will not move the GOP to act. The Trumps are the Bluths of the political world, but it's the Republicans who are the real strawberry floaters here, and they've shown just how far they're willing to sell their country down the river in order to stay in power.

It'll take something extraordinary (well more extraordinary than we've seen :slol: ) for the Republicans to act.

But all of this stuff is now public record and there are midterms next year. If all this can turn enough people against Trump/Republicans then the Democrats could take over both Houses and they can start impeachment.

It's possible that the Republicans might even do it themselves if the evidence keeps building and they start fearing that Trump will be bad for them.

Either way, nothing happens immediately, these things take time.

It took over a year for Watergate to get going.

It has had some impact already. nationalreview.com which is a key conservative website has been utterly scathing of Trump this week. They were never fully on the Trump train, but willing to live with the nonsense for a Republican agenda. But they are now freely admitting that this meeting is beyond acceptable. What they are doing, and this may be the position of the GOP for now, is to say that there is an investigation underway and therefore they need to see what comes of that. I think the GOP will sit this out whilst they think there is a chance they can get some legislation through with a Republican pen in the oval office, but once the midterms become key, I think things could start to change.

This is a great thread for explaining GOP inaction. The article links to a newspaper article, but if you see the whole thread you'll see Steve Kornacki's take on it.

Did you spot the Trump did that thing he always does when he learns something new? (This time that France and American are oldest allies?)

'Not a lot of people know that'

He just can't believe he's not clever or more insightful than everyone else.

It's crazy that nobody now thinks of W as the worst President of modern times. Who would have believed that to be possible? :lol:

He was still objectively terrible, though.

We can't just ignore the horrible things his administration did, just because someone worse came along.

Trump campaign paid $50,000 to Trump Jr's lawyer before emails released - Payment to Alan Futerfas’s firm made 13 days before emails relating to alleged links to Russia were publicly released

A campaign finance report filed to the Federal Election Commission on Saturday said the committee made the payment to Alan Futerfas’s law firm on 27 June.

The revelation of the payment suggests that although Trump did not know about his son’s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016 until recently, his campaign committee knew before the president did.

...

Futerfas, a veteran New York criminal defence attorney best known for defending clients involved with mafia crime families, is Donald Trump Jr’s attorney in the Russia investigations.

Only the best for wee Donny Jr.

President Donald Trump urged Theresa May to 'fix better UK welcome' for him

Donald Trump reportedly told Theresa May he would not come to the UK unless he gets a "better reception" and urged her to "fix it" for him.

A state visit by the US President was believed to have originally been planned for June this year.

But it was postponed amid anger in the UK over his controversial remarks about Muslims, immigration and women.

According to The Sun on Sunday, in a transcript of a conversation between the two leaders, Mr Trump told the Prime Minister: "I haven't had great coverage out there lately, Theresa."

She replied: "Well, you know what the British press are like."

He said: "I still want to come, but I'm in no rush. So, if you can fix it for me, it would make things a lot easier.

"When I know I'm going to get a better reception, I'll come and not before."

http://news.sky.com/story/president-don ... m-10950212

So the guy with abysmal approval ratings in his own country wants Theresa May of all people to somehow improve his image here...

Ahahahahahaha! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :toot:

The obvious solution is to stop being a complete banana split.
