Look guys. I'm sick of trump. May he rot in hell.

His first 100 days are history, so I assert that it is counter productive to add comments to a thread about his first 100 days.

In an uncharacteristically optimistic mood, I invite discussion of his Final 100 days, which has hopefully now begun.

My champagne is in the fridge awaiting his resignation, impeachment, or untimely demise. I may crack the bottle open early if nukes start flying, but sure as hell will have another one ready if I survive the first volley of trump induced missile launches and I hear of one splitting its warheads twixt the Whitehouse and Mar a Lago.

I may offer side bets on whether I started the countdown too soon. In truth, I think that the wheels of justice will plod along at glacial pace, but that they will be as unstoppable as global warming.

Let this thread celebrate every step back towards sanity and democracy even if we are forced to accept that we will pass through a pretty dreadful Pence term on that route.*

*Who apart from Trump would want that w@nk3r Pence as VP or Potus? Surely not even the most conservative Republican. But, What the heck. Nothing trumps trump.

Oh. And as a side topic: Would it be preferable to have an ousted trump claiming some glory if that was the price to pay for having him out of power? Even Adolf still has a fan club.

You're too early by 6 to 9 months, IMO. This will take a while.

Meanwhile, Paul Ryan was on last night saying, (paraphrase) No, we're not distracted from what we're doing; there's a whole lot going on in Congress, many bills going through the process.

Thanks for the warning, Mr. Ryan. This has been your plan since the day Trump got elected; do a bunch of stuff nobody wants done outside the rich and powerful while Trump holds the national attention.

Yes, Trump will try to martyr himself into glory. His most fervent supporters will see him as human sacrifice, without ever acknowledging the hypocrisy or the illegal acts. Alternative facts rule, at least for now.

I fear you are correct, but I have to have something to cling to.

Meanwhile, was I the only person to think this of his recent speech. . .

He whined about how Hilary sent a few emails from the wrong laptop, meanwhile Trump still uses his personal Android to tweet his daily absurd comments.

We already knew this. He misspelled "tap" in one of his tweets accusing Obama of wiretapping Trump tower.

Trump is at least at odds with the gop on some things. He is also inefficient. I don't really see how pence would be an improvement. For example, he is a true believer in all the religious lunacy.

All somewhat of a mute point as dems have refused to adjust in any way. We're near the end of liberal democracy most likely. Perhaps that's the inevitable flow of history.

Two days ago, the NYT published this article, based upon an alleged memo that no one has seen, and was allegedly read over the telephone to the NYT reporter by an unidentified source they described as “one of Mr. Comey’s associates”.

Even though there is no evidence the unclassified memo, or the 'Comey associate' even exists, the article described it as "the clearest evidence the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I".

The Dow fell 375 points because of that sketchy article.

Two weeks earlier on May 3rd, when questioned under oath , Comey denied it ever happened

Comey testifies under oath, no one tried to get him to stop an FBI investigation.

Depends how you define "tried". If Trump had told Comey that he has to stop the investigation immediately or he's fired.... then I think that qualifies as "tried".

Instead Trump used "subtle influence", "I hope you can let this go". No threats. I wouldn't call that a "try" to get Comey to stop. So I believe Comey is still truthful in his statements, but I think both situations rise to the level of obstruction of justice.
