Trump Live Press Conference With Colombian President

Earlier, Shep Smith nearly ejaculated over himself when Claire McCaskill revealed what we knew last week, that Trump had already decided to fire Comey before Rod Rosenstein wrote his memo that such a firing would be justified.

Live press conference here at CNN.

Live blog of the press conference at Fox.

So far it's just preparatory remarks.

2 Honest question, does anyone think that the Democrats will accept any finding other than that Trump committed treason and should be impeached, if not executed?

Because I don't think they will.

I'm guardedly optimistic that Mueller will give Trump a clean bill of health. The hard core of the D party and MSM won't accept this, and will drive themselves over a cliff. Trumpsters will be motivated to vote. The INDs will move away from the Ds, and most will wind up in Trumpland

46 Trump had already decided to fire Comey before Rod Rosenstein wrote his memo

And so what? The president wanted to fire Comey, but decided to get the opinions of his own people in the DOJ, Sessions and Rosenstein, before actually doing so. What exactly is wrong with that?

A lot of this media drumbeat in the MSM and the globalist donor-funded media on the right is just trying to frame as outrageous something that is actually not outrageous.

OMG HE PUTS KETCHUP ON HIS STEAK
OMG HE TAKES TWO SCOOPS OF ICE CREAM

They believe that if a news reader says something silly and ridiculous but in a serious and authoritative voice, a lot of people will take it seriously. And, they're probably not wrong.

No, which is why its stupid to think ANYTHING will exonerate him and why it's only going to be death by a thousand cuts to have a special prosecutor.

Sessions was incredibly stupid to recuse himself all over a stupid question from Al Franken.

So an uncomfortable 24 hour news cycle will now be the focus over the next 4 years.

My advice would be nobody cooperates or talks and let them go on a wild goose chase.

My view is that the Progressive Left Democrat Party sees their position as " no- lose".
They delegitimize the Trump Presidency, they cow the spineless GOP into submission, they " other" the white working class into " sub" status.
Oh, and along the way, they continue to strengthen their control of Education, and all forms of Communications.

Every scurrilous detail would be reviewed and speculated on, every source listened to. Especially anonomous sources. Just like professional jounalists do from the NYT and the Washington Post.

Then I would pull a Brer Rabbit on the investgation, making a weak attempt to keep these items out of the invstigation. Unload it at the demand of the media, the dems and the Rinos.

The meetings would have discussions about how it's not true that Hillary eats shit sandwiches because it's generally known that she is not fond of bread.

This what Lyndon Johnson use to do.

This is what Obama did to Trump with Golden Showergate.

Time to fight fire with fire. And hit them where it hurts. Like with John McCain his war hero card should be torn in half.

"Yeah, there's a reason why nobody up until now has decided to go back to The Dark Crystal. It's because Jim Henson's dead, and it has become abundantly clear since then that nobody's nearly as good as he is with continuing the stories of his creations. But it looks like they're going to run ten thousand volts throught the corpse and get The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance bursting out of the chest cavity."
