It's the most boring block set I have ever, ever seen. Are we sure it's not parody?

I'm afraid it's all too real.

From the looks of the artwork on the box, they've literally pinched the idea from an older parody image mocking Trump.

They couldn't get Muller so they went after Avenatti. Interesting.

It's a Judge appointed under him.

It's not a full ruling - but he's agreed with the restraining order (against the pass removal? I don't quite get it..) until a ruling is reached on the basis the motion of CNN/Acosta is likely to succeed.

Once he's back all the other reporters should just keep quiet so that Trump has no choice but to take questions from Acosta otherwise I can see baby pres just trying to ignore him. :lol:

Doesn't matter. He just has to sit there. A clear visible reminder to Trump that his power is not by any stretch absolute.

Yes but him being very visibly ignored by Trump let's the administration give a clear message that you can fight to stay in the room but it doesn't mean we're going to engage with you.

Trump finished his homework:
Trump says he’s finished writing answers to questions from special counsel Robert Mueller

President Trump on Friday said he has answered a set of questions from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III “very easily,” while his lawyers signal that the president expects to turn over his written answers in the coming days.

Trump stressed that he has been “busy” and it has taken some time to complete them, but also expressed his concern about Mueller’s purpose in obtaining them.

“You always have to be careful answering questions for people who have bad intentions,” he said of the team Mueller has assembled to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and any possible coordination with Trump’s campaign. “I haven’t submitted them. I just finished them.”

The president’s comments, which he made to reporters gathered in the Oval Office for a bill signing, came after his lawyers surprisingly postponed submitting the answers as they had planned to on Thursday. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s lawyer, told The Washington Post that the legal team was still deciding whether some of Mueller’s questions they agreed to answer in September would cause legal problems for the president.

According to people familiar with the delay, Trump’s lawyers believe they have now resolved the problem they faced.

Trump stressed Friday that he answered the questions personally, not his lawyers. The president has met with lawyers nearly every day this week in sessions to review his answers, including a four-hour session Wednesday that was frequently interrupted by other business. Trump spent more than four hours meeting with his attorneys Monday, broken up by phone calls the president had to take, and 90 minutes Wednesday night, according to people familiar with the sessions.

Thanks to thin skinned Trump, the White House Correspondents Dinner will no longer have jokes aimed at the President. :lol:

I think it should be fair from now on to laugh in the face of any Republican voter who tries to claim anyone is a snowflake.

Almost 38,000 people in the United States have been shot by guns so far in 2018, according to data compiled tracking website Gun Violence Archive. 13,000 of those killed. 250 police officers have been shot on duty.

When you consider there’s 325 million in the country, I suppose that’s not too bad. It’s still good, it’s still good as Homer Simpson once said...

If those numbers kept steady at that rate, you’d be looking at 4 million people shot in a lifetime.

Freedom isn't free and that's the price of freedom and if you don't agree you're an evil socialist.

Remember that Georgia special election where the Democrat Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel?
