    Exactly. Does he not remember all the **** that he himself said about Obama? Imagine if Obama had no sack and responded to every meandering thought that flew betwixt Trump's hot air hole?

    Embarrassing mess of a President. "He's always been that way" is a weak and lazy defense that suggests his role of POTUS has no standards of behavior to observe, and gives him an infinite low to sink to.

    We definitely need a status update of FLOTUS Melania's cyber bullying prevention campaign.

    Wow! The AUMF from 2001 to go after the perpetrators of 9/11 has finally been repealed. 240 days after the enactment of the NDAA bill for 2018. Wow is really all that comes to mind. It was incredibly broad and was used for about 40 incursions into 14 different countries.

    Except the Republicans are the majority and the Dems weren't. So the Right put a blockade on Obama's agendas no matter who it affected, and they can barely get anything done with their highest majority in 80 years.

    The complaints that Trump and his lawyer said were coming about James Comey have apparently been delayed. Surprised that Trump has threatened to sue and backed down once again. See? My surprised face.

    That should show that some Republicans won't just blindly follow Trump. Democrats slowed down pretty much all the cabinet nominations, the appointment of Gorsuch, etc.

    That's pretty impressive given that the Democrats have zero ability to do it. The Republicans need 50 votes to confirm Trump's nominees. They have 52 votes. So please explain how the Democrats were able to cast 51 votes when they only had 48 at their disposal. I just don't see the math adding up here.

    Now there are 559 senate confirmable nominees. 39 people have been confirmed and 442 don't even have a nominee yet. That means that 78 people have been confirmed and haven't gotten a confirmation hearing from the Republican-led senate.

    I'm not referring to actual votes, I'm referring to Democrats plans to hold the senate floor up in protest to in particular the nomations of Jeff Sessions and Betsy DeVos.

    Trump also had the longest wait of any president to get their main cabinet members confirmed since Jimmy Carter.

    Pretty neat article that has a blast from the past to see former cabinets

    Yet that article seems primarily concerned with...actual votes. It also doesn't seem to account for numerous positions Trump didn't appoint, and more importantly, those that didn't complete pre-vetting procedure with the Office of Government Ethics, which Trump has already antagonized. Even if someone thought those cabinet picks and appointees (the ones he actually made) were fine, it's not exactly surprising that so many of them who either had no experience in what they were doing or actively worked in the past against the agencies they were to run would draw a lot of inquiry.

    Um, the Dems have the say all be all ability to do it. They won't vote Yes on anything relating to Trump. As Trump said, he could put together the most beautiful bill ever and he still wouldn't hat a democratic vote. That is being done with intent. The Dems are forcing to use the 50/60 vote scenario because the Dems are stead fast that they aren't voting for a bill from Trump. So yeah....the Dems are causing this **** fest.

    Remember when all the Trump supporters said he was just acting that way because it was campaign season and he'd change his comportment and act more Presidential when he was elected. Did anyone buy that?

    It's obvious this is who he is and who he will always be. He will never stop.
    He is insanely immature, like he is in middle school.

    But nobody wants him to stop tweeting. Never have we had such access to a President to hear their thoughts. Those that bash him, and those that want information. He is obviously transparent about all of his thoughts.

    He should try doing that. Congress as a whole has a duty to work together and put aside partisan ******** where it can make advances for the country, but that doesn't mean people are obligated to reach across the aisle and support something for the sake of it.

    Other than saying that Democrats torpedoed the votes, the article provides no evidence to back up the ridiculous assertion. The Democrats have no power to do what it says or what you say they did. You both are making factually inaccurate claims that are not and cannot be backed up by facts. If Trump couldn't get his cabinet through in a timely fashion, then he is the first president who must attribute 100% of the blame to his own party. They hold 52 votes and 50 are required for all cabinet appointments. So the Democrats could sit on their hands and refuse to vote for anyone and the cabinet would be built around them. Their opinion, solely or collectively, is 100% irrelevant.
