As my colleague, Leo Vidal here at PoliticusUSA makes clear regarding Mr. Trump using the most blatant of racist ads to use as his closing argument for the mid-term elections by pinning it up on top of his Twitter feed:
Even Trump's own staff is calling him weak after his terrible press conference with Putin.
The United States Supreme Court is seen as the last resort for Americans whose views are not shared by the majority. However Tuesday’s ruling upholding President Donald Trump’s travel ban was called a “decision that will live in infamy.”
Rudy Giuliani had quite the unhinged interview with Dana Bash several days ago.
As PoliticusUSA Editor-In-Chief, and my colleauge Jason Easley described that interview in his piece titled Rudy Giuliani Screws Up And Admits Mueller Wants To Interview Trump On Obstruction of Justice:
On the same broadcast this past Friday when Nicole Wallace, host of Deadline: White House, laid into Donald Trump for his persistent lying with impunity to the people of this nation, in a later segment Wallace reminded her viewers through one of her panelists why Mr. Trump is “utterly unfit” to be President of the United States.
MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace, host of Deadline: White House, has had it with Donald Trump’s propaganda, and has reached a point of utter frustration, as a direct result of it, so much so that she refused to share with her viewers any more of the plethora of Tweets Trump spewed Friday morning regarding the Russian investigation.
E. J. Dionne, columnist for the Washington Post and author of several works regarding political analysis, reports that the American Bishop, The Most Rev. Michael Curry, who “preached for the royal wedding last Saturday, isn’t finished with us yet.”
The first amendment of our constitution is clear:

On January 6, 2017, between Donald Trump winning the presidential election and his being sworn in, our nation’s intelligence community issued a document clearly outlining how Russia, at the directive of the President of that nation, interfered with our election, favoring Donald Trump.
Instead of providing reassurance that Mr. Trump was not considering firing Robert Mueller or Rod Rosenstein, Trump provided a cryptic response to a reporter yesterday asking whether “he had decided it not worth the political fallout” to fire either of the men associated with the Russian investigation.
Several rumors continue circulating that Mr. Trump wants to fire the Deputy Attorney General for the United States Department of Justice, Rod Rosenstein, or Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, with reports by major media outlets such as The Washington Post and The New York Times, confirming such speculation.
During Mr. Trump’s meltdown on Monday night, prior to his meeting with his security team regarding the issue of Syria, the reader might recall a reporter asking Mr. Trump quite an unusual question:
Often, when comparing the current occupant of our Oval Office to his predecessor, Barack Obama, I inevitably receive a healthy dose of criticism arguing how my doing so “plays into the hands of Donald J. Trump” while normalizing his behavior.
Scott Pruitt should find himself in jeopardy of losing his job.
However, yesterday Mr. Trump called Mr. Pruitt, a “good man,” while refusing to comment on questions regarding questionable ethical behavior engaged in by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Administrator. Mr. Trump added:

The Presidential Personnel Office is responsible for the vetting and hiring of nearly 4000 government employees with 1200 requiring Senate approval. It is this office which ensures the government functions smoothly and properly under any administration.
With Mr. Trump being considered by many political pundits and media outlets as the most prolific liar as President in modern day politics, it is stunning to observe his supporters continuing to stand by his side.
Eight days ago, I wrote a column sharing how our “nation is divided.” Those seeking evidence for this claim need only to look to two recent events effecting Black Americans in our nation.
