    After a hearing in which former FBI Director James Comey accused the Trump administration of lying and defaming him, and said he'd orchestrated a leak in a bid to get a special counsel appointed, most of President Trump's biggest boosters in the media still found plenty of reasons to gloat.

    I expect CNN, MSNBC, WAPO and even NYT to continue to write derogatory stories that are either simply not true or are merely opinion.

    Trump doesn't have a lot of boosters in the media as the CNN article above proclaims. What has been written IMO looks objectively at questions raised. When will MSM stop with the Russian witch hunt? Is there any possibility of Obstruction of justice or is media just shifting its attention away from Russian conspiracy theories that viewers are tired of hearing about.

    It is time IMO for republicans in congress to either support The president or go to the other side. They need to work on policy, what the right voted for. There won't be any support from democrats and there is no reason to gloat. If Dems though aren't willing to do anything except complain, they should just take an early recess and get out of the way.

    We have had 7 months of congress doing nothing. It's now time to get down to business or go home.

    It will be months if not years before Special Counsel completes their investigation. Congress needs to produce some evidence of any wrong doing. If they know that Russia mettles in elections and has for years, its not going to stop. Congress needs to move on to something productive.

    Give us Solutions, not Problems without answers.

    The most hilarious part about this is the left thinking they won something. It's like when they thought Hillary wins by a landslide.

    The GOP has largely carried Trump's water so far.

    There have been few defections. A few mealy mouthed protests from Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio. But, generally, the GOP leadership has sat silent or made excuses for Trump. They participated in Trump's scheme to undermine the House Intelligence Committee.

    But right now, there are three Republican parties, the talk radio crowd. the bankers and the oil men, and Trump.

    The entire country loses, with this entire ******n debacle. The whole scandal, from the Trump campaign having people like Flynn so tied to the Russians, to the Liberal MSM hounding every god forsaken word Trump utters as impeachable, has made this country a laughing stock, and all of us are paying the price for the CONTINUED gridlock in Washington.

    Uhh... you just listed four there, Einstein.

    Rush: They Still Can't Stop Donald Trump

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average is at a new all-time high today. What does that tell you, ladies and gentlemen? It tells you they’re not paying any attention to this circus. If they thought… The Dow’s up 29.71 right now. NASDAQ’s up 16.57. If the markets thought there was anything to this — and, folks, this investigation was going to result in the falling apart of our country, that the Russians are taking over — people would be fleeing the markets in droves. The market is setting an all-time high today.

    [​IMG]
    Outside of Washington. I think this circus and this soap opera is beneath us. It is plain and simple what’s happening here, and that is the Washington, D.C. — and actually the global — establishment is attempting to undermine the current president. There is a very loud silent coup underway, and all of this has an objective, and that is to either paralyze the Trump presidency or to dispatch it. That’s all this is.

    The quest for power, particularly by those on the left, has gotten now to a poisonous level where it is being driven by pure, raw hatred.

    This is simply and purely a quest to usurp power away from someone who legitimately won it by those who legitimately lost it — and that, in a nutshell, is what bothers all of them. They legitimately lost this election. They legitimately and fairly lost what they consider their power. It was not stolen from them. It was not hacked. It was not taken or purloined. They lost it. The media lost their power, the Democrats lost the elections, and they can’t abide it.

    RUSH: Meanwhile… I admit some of these items may be arguable. I want to run through the list. In the past two years… I’m going back to June of 2015 when Trump and Melania descended the escalator at Trump Tower.

    [​IMG]
    In the past two years, nothing the media, the Democrats, the Washington establishment, and the Never Trumpers have thrown at Trump has worked. They have thrown everything they’ve got at Trump, and he is still there. He may not be exhibiting the same humor and charm and extroverted behavior because he is occupied by all of the assaults, but he’s still there. They haven’t gotten rid of him, and his agenda is still on the tracks.

    They have tried everything they can think of to discredit and destroy the Trump presidency, from the escalator speech through the mowing down of Republican primary opponents. They had “Pussaigate.” They thought they had Trump with that. Then the lying and the polling and Russia and Flynn and all of the fake news that have been reporting. The lies, the distortions, all of the felonious and criminal leaks.

    The Washington Post has minimum 30 embeds in the deep state that reported leaked information, and now James Comey has joined the leakers! James Comey leaked his memos he wrote about Trump. He asked a friend of his to disseminate them to the media. Can somebody tell me the difference in what Reality Winner did and what Comey did? Reality Winner had some documents from the NSA; she gave ’em to a reporter.

    James Comey had some private memos he wrote about Donald Trump, and he leaked them to the media, who made news stories out of them. Both of them leaked. In one case, Reality Winner leaked stuff that wasn’t hers. Comey leaked stuff that was his. But they’re both leakers. Comey’s a leaker, and he announced it!

    Despite all this, Trump keeps chugging along. Yes, he may not have the humor he had in the campaign. He may not have the charm he had during the campaign. But he’s besieged on all fronts in ways most human beings will never experience or be able to relate to. I challenge you… Try to do this. Try to imagine you’re Donald Trump for a day and forget about the fame of it. Forget about living in the White House. Forget about being president. Just imagine every day that everybody outside the White House was gunning for you and half the people working for you are gunning for you, and he’s still there.

    He nominated 11 more just fabulous conservative judges yesterday for federal districts. These 11 judges that he nominated yesterday are Neil Gorsuch quality. They are awesome, and they are crucially important to turning around the fetid direction this country is headed. Trump has slashed regulations and prevented the writing of new ones at a level unseen in our lifetimes. He is still, despite being opposed by his own party on Capitol Hill, working to try to fix Obamacare. He’s working on infrastructure.

    He’s working on Mideast peace. He pulled us out of the Paris climate accords! There’s not a soul who actually thought he would pull that off and go through with that and have the courage to do it, and he did it. And while all of this happening, the stock market is soaring. Consumer confidence is high. Jobs are on the creation.

    Trump is a decent amateur checkers player trying to learn how to play chess against the numerous grand masters that surround him and lead other nations.

    I don't know but from all I can tell it looks like Trumps trying to do just about everything by himself with a little help from his family. Oh, yeah he has that dumb cell phone someone need to take away from him. He needs get his own act in order, clean house, get the kids to move out and then begin working better with the never Trump republicans and even some of his supporters that don't agree with him all the time. After that it might be possible for him to work with a few democrats though that would probably take divine intervention or shock therapy.

    If he can't, it won't be good for anyone because he's not going away and he's not quitting. He doesn't have to get along with the media but does need to be more diplomatic. I get that he wants to act tough. It's not what he says so much as how he says it. His delivery needs a good amount of improvement and development. Defending some of the dumb stuff he does is not easy but the alternatives are worse, IMO.

    Because victory is having to fire your National Security Advisor less than six months into your first term, having a special prosecutor appointed to investigate your campaign ties with Russian intelligence and watching your Republican majority in both houses fail to deliver any piece of legislation.

    Oh but the Dow is high, you know, because of President Trump!

    Sorry, but comey is an operator and completely outmaneuvered trump. Seems he was able to orchestrate the appointment of a special counsel by exploiting the stupidity of Trump's tweets.

    Guess you've never played chess.

    Trump was proven innocent. He is a tv star and never had big relations with Russia. He never colluded. The anti Trumpets are in full meltdown.

    The Democratic Party Is In Worse Shape Than You Thought. It’s media-dominance makes it seem stronger than it is.

    If the Republican Majority hasn't gotten anything done, it is not the fault of the Democratic Minority.

    In any case, at least the Republican Majority in The House accomplished something - a major new Health Care Bill. Ya know, the one trump said would be beautiful!

    "Little Marco" Rubio has now gotten on board with trump.
