Trump denies Pelosi military aircraft for war zone trip

That's the headline CNN gives you. It's a bit disingenuous.

Turns out, Pelosi had this trip scheduled and had recently told him to postpone the SOTU speech until after the shutdown is over. He responded by cancelling her trip "until the shutdown was over". (Don't tell anyone or they may get fired, but CNN actually gives him props for this "tit for tat" move.)

I'd love to say hold more elections now and let's get rid of all these idiots, but you know our moronic countrymen...sorry, countrywomen and others, would just vote them all back into office.

Buzzfeed claims the all knowing "sources" have told them Trump told Cohen to lie to Congress. CNN is there to help you finish as you read about it.

Let's be honest, it's got to be in writing or on video. If it's someone's word, it means nothing. It's just a way to get clicks from the rabid folks who want nothing more than Trump to be removed as if that will somehow have any affect on their day to day lives.

Every day when I open CNN I think to myself, "What will they be attacking dum-dum about today?"

I miss news.

Although, props to CNN (twice in as many days) for this headline opinion piece calling Trump and Pelosi children.

Meh... when it was just Nancy doing it, she had just pulled a major power move on Donald Trump's State of the Union. So it appears the network's desire to slam Trump takes a higher priority than defending the Democrat in this instance, thus the change of narrative.

Read my post three posts above yours.

They gave him credit for countering her SotU move with canceling her trip.

This was so bad that even Mueller has come out and said it's a false story. The press may not be the enemy of the people, but they're certainly the enemy of truth.

Trump probably shouldn't legitimize a guy just because a good chunk of the population hates the other guy.

I think pretty much everyone that is not a totalitarian regime has recognized the new guy as the interim president.

I wondered if maybe that was in there :-)

Roger Stone arrested
Roger Stone has been indicted by a grand jury on charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller, who alleges that the longtime Donald Trump associate sought stolen emails from WikiLeaks that could damage Trump's opponents at the direction of "a senior Trump Campaign official."

The indictment's wording does not say who on the campaign knew about Stone's quest, but makes clear it was multiple people. This is the first time prosecutors have alleged they know of additional people close to the President who worked with Stone as he sought out WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Not shedding any tears over Stone. I've always thought he was a douche bag. This was why I warned other conservatives about nominating a man with such obvious poor character. No one honest will be shocked that's he surrounded himself with people of very bad character throughout his life.

They're all douchebags. I wish we could do a "no confidence" vote on the president, VP, and Congress.

Sadly, it means the SotU will be everywhere next week, too, I bet.

Trump's fault for offering to take the blame for the shutdown. I mean, talk about giving away the game before it starts.
