Trump’s Own (Ghostwriter’s) Words in ‘Art of the Deal’ Bite Him Back–Fiercely

IMAGE CREDIT: WASHINGTON TIMES One has to read just this one passage from Trump’s Art of the Deal to realize that sometimes he may wish he had just kept his mouth shut: “Deliver the Goods” “You can’t con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don’t deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on … I’d never understood how Jimmy Carter became president. The answer is that as poorly qualified as he was for...

Make No Mistake, This Is Trump’s Failure and It’s Huge

President Trump blames the failure of his signature legislation, the American Health Care Act, on Democrats, even though he never enlisted their help on the bill. And even though he says publicly that he doesn’t blame Paul Ryan for this failure, we can guess that if he had to choose himself or Ryan to blame for the failure of the legislation, he would surely blame Ryan. Of course, throughout his campaign for president, Trump constantly bragged that ‘Washington is broken,’ and as a master deal maker, only he can ‘fix it.’ So which is it, did the Democrats, Paul...

Trump’s Oval Office TV Appearance Today Was a Total Disgrace

‘It’s not going to be pretty.’ ‘It is going to get worse.’ ‘It is going to explode and probably that will be good.’ These were comments uttered by President Trump from the Oval Office today about Obamacare, just after Trump’s spectacular fail in his promise to repeal and replace Obamacare. Trump went on to blame the Democrats for his inability to close the deal on Trumpcare. Not only was this the first time I had witnessed a president speaking from the Oval Office spewing excuses and jabs at everyone who he thinks sabotaged his key campaign promise from coming...

Republican ‘Lemmings’ Will Likely Fall in Line and Vote ‘Yes’ on Health Care Act

IMAGE CREDIT: THE PORTLAND PRESS HERALD Even though current estimates indicate House Republicans don’t have enough votes to pass the American Health Care Act, ‘Trumpcare,’ at today’s scheduled vote on the legislation, my guess is that it is still likely to pass. Even though the legislation will only hurt those it is supposed to help, the odds are that House Republicans would prefer to shove something bad down the throats of the everyday Americans they represent to avoid handing President Trump a huge legislative failure less than 100 days into his presidency. If Trumcare passes today, we will know...

There’s One Thing the President Won’t Put His Name On

IMAGE CREDIT: COMMON DREAMS We all know Trump measures his level of success by the number of times he can put his name all over buildings, but also anything else he can slap it on. Everything from steaks, to vodka, to water, Trump is always proud to throw his name on it. So, it really is telling that Trump refuses to call his key piece of legislation, The American Health Care Act, ‘Trumpcare.’ There are probably at least two reasons for this. First, even if the House passes ‘Trumpcare’ today, it is clear the legislation will require a longer,...

Rep. Nunes Laughingly Apologizes to His Collegues for Publicy Stabbing Them in the Back

HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CO-CHAIRS ADAM SCHIFF (LEFT) AND DEVIN NUNES. IMAGE CREDIT: CAPITALBAY.COM/GETTY IMAGES U.S. Representative Devin Nunes yesterday publicly embarrassed his Congressional colleagues while simultaneously destroying the credibility of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Trump’s connections with Russia by helping Trump further the lie that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower. Probably realizing just how brazen his attempt to grandstand for personal gain really was and that he should now be thrown off of the House Intelligence Committee, Nunes apologized to his colleagues this morning. If there were ever a better illustration of being disingenuous, it escapes me....

Will House Republicans Make Americans ‘Sicker’ Just to ‘Dis’ Obama?

IMAGE CREDIT: CNN.COM The U.S. House of Representatives will vote today on the fate of ‘ Trumpcare,’ officialy known as the American Health Care Act. You would have had to be living in a cave in Afghanistan not to know that Trump campaigned heavily on a promise to ‘repeal and replace Obamacare, with something better.’ Of course, Trump never explained just how Trumpcare would be better than Obamacare, and apparently couldn’t care less to do so. Clearly, Trump’s only goal has been to keep his promise to decimate Obamacare, regardless of the cost to those who rely upon it...
