    IMO that is the most fantastic news I have seen on a Time cover in ages. That is EXACTLY what Trump voters wanted them to do. It is draining the swamp that has been in Washington far too long. They could start by getting rid of several government agencies that are an unneeded money pit.

    Washington government as we know it is a corrupt cesspool. Hard to believe anybody prefers business as usual

    Trump went to drain the swamp, and ended up making a corporate everglades. His latest judicial nominee has never tried a case.

    If you wanted a ocean with more toxins, you certainly got it.

    The Past Week Proves That Trump Is Destroying Our Democracy



    America is on its way to a full-blown constitutional crisis.

    Over just a few days last week, President Trump and his allies stepped up attacks on Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating the campaign’s connections to Russia. They tried to push Attorney General Jeff Sessions out of office. They thought out loud about whether the president can pardon himself.

    This all points to the same conclusion: Mr. Trump is willing to deal a major blow to the rule of law — and the American Republic — in order to end an independent investigation into his Russia ties.

    It is tempting to picture the demise of democracy as a Manichaean drama in which the stakes are clear from the start and the main actors fully understand their roles: Would-be dictators rail against democracy, hire violent thugs to do their bidding and vow to destroy the opposition. When they demand expanded powers or attack independent institutions, their supporters and opponents alike realize that authoritarianism has arrived.

    There have, in fact, been a few times and places when the villains were quite as villainous, and the heroes quite as heroic. (Think Germany in the 1930s.) But in most cases, the demise of democracy has been far more gradual and far easier to overlook.

    Trump doesn't know anything and doesn't want to learn.. whether its healthcare or taxes, of foreign trade... He covers that with bombast and jingles.

    He claims US intelligence agencies are "political hacks"..

    How foolish you are.. Don't you listen for substance when he speaks?

    The nation is under attack and a traitor is in the WH.

    Trump is more worried about hurting Putin's feelings than an attack on the institutions of democracy. Riiiiiiiiiight. Trump is the enemy.

    What are you talking about? Do you know?

    But you are right about one thing. The small minority of Americans who voted for Trump did so because they wanted chaos in Washington. Most are non-college educated anarchists and disgruntled blue collar workers, miners, and farmers who blame the government for all their ills.

    They don't have the intellectual capacity to take care of their own.

    When in the past 40 years has Trump spoke of anything of substance? When did Obama? When did Hillary, when did Bush jr?, when did McCain, when did Kerry, when did al Gore? They are all blow hards ...

    I am not saying that presidents are expected to be saints, but Trump is a buffoon.

    Your arguments are not even rational.

    I sure freaking hope so.

    That's why the majority of Americans who have really deep roots in America sent Donald Trump to Washington to drain the swamp.

    America is a democratic republic as opposed to a socialist republic or a constitutional monarchy.
