His last couple tweets show a strange beginning of distancing from FoxNews. I wonder what that's all about?

They had Bernie on Fox News for a "Town Hall" and the audience did not throw produce at Bernie. So, obviously, Fox News rigged the audience to make Bernie look good.

May God rest their soul?

I think he means that whoever runs against him is dead on arrival, that he knows that no person will beat him.

It's easy to be that cocky when the GOP is suppressing votes and Russia is hacking the election.

I'd say it's mild compared to most of what he's come out with.

A lot less un-Presidential than crapping on a dead war hero.

Trump Tweets

Many Trump Fans & Signs were outside of the @FoxNews Studio last night in the now thriving (Thank you President Trump) Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, for the interview with Crazy Bernie Sanders. Big complaints about not being let in-stuffed with Bernie supporters. What’s with @FoxNews?

Bernie Sanders and wife should pay the Pre-Trump Taxes on their almost $600,000 in income. He is always complaining about these big TAX CUTS, except when it benefits him. They made a fortune off of Trump, but so did everyone else - and that’s a good thing, not a bad thing!

I like Chris Cuomo's spin on Trump's "criticism" of Fox. He says that Trump acts like a spurned boyfriend who's upset that his regular girl was cheating on him.

That his intuitions regarding his base are spot on. Who cares about what anyone outside his base cares about? Grammar? How things should work? Due diligence? The 2016 and 2020 elections are about far more! This is about protecting and enhancing a longstanding and deep-rooted American social and political tradition. That it is utterly dishonorable is completely irrelevant. "All options are [always] on the table" tells you everything you need to know.

Current and ex- White House aides are nervous about The PDJT's volatile reaction when the report is released tomorrow which may detail what they said about him.

I can understand the current personnel being afraid for their jobs, but why should the exes be concerned?

No. It is more like him having his own toy to play with and then seeing another toddler playing with the same type of toy. Trump wants his toy and Trump wants no one else to have the same toy - he’s that self-centered.

This may have been posted before, but if you haven't seen it, it is a brilliant montage and well worth the 5 minutes.

Uh, we noticed that he was "this way" long before he was catapulted into the position by morons.

I suppose my comment was more aimed at those Americans who, knowing full well the office of POTUS had indeed been publicly lowered into a cesspit and sloshed around in it, are allowing this to continue.

Trump is now starting to remind us a lot of Idi Amin, or as he self-inflated himself: "His Excellency President for Life, Field Marshal Alhaji Dr. Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, CBE". Just take a look at the parallels. Bone-headed thick-wit uses shady dealings to establish a political presence. Overthrows establishment to place himself on the throne. Uses the military and police using strongarm tactics against any perceived political and racial "enemies" to cement that position "for life". Has regular purges of "foreigners". Is totally corrupted through and through. Deals arms illegally with the scum of the Earth. The US ambassador in 1973 described Amin's Uganda at the worst of his reign as "racist, erratic and unpredictable, brutal, inept, bellicose, irrational, ridiculous, and militaristic". Sound familiar? And when Amin was finally overthrown (after starting a pointless border war with a neighbour) and fled, where did he go? To his allies in Saudi Arabia...

Let's hope it doesn't get that bad in the USA.

If Bernie Sanders gets the nomination, he beats Trump.

If not, I'll stop posting for an entire year, 360 days, if you would do the same if he does.

Perhaps you missed Clinton's win in the primary and her 3 million more votes than Trump in the election.

As much as I am loath to make any kind of predictions, I just think there will not be the apathy among the D voters in the 2020 election as there was when Hillary was a 'dead cert' to win the presidency.

Biden, Bernie, But-edge-edge. They can all beat trump.

The Report gets released today. North Korea just tested a new missile. Kim Jong Un just requested a meeting with Putin.

This is going to be a busy week in the White House. I wonder if the combination of all this is going to push The PDJT over the edge.

Trump Retweeted

Judicial Watch
@JudicialWatch

BREAKING: JW announced today that it filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DOJ for records of communications and payments between the FBI & former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and his private firm, Orbis Business Intelligence

JW President @TomFitton appeared on “Fox and Friends First” to discuss AG Bill Barr’s testimony and Spygate: They know it’s spying. This is a joint operation between the DNC, the Clinton campaign, the FBI, and DOJ to target President @realDonaldTrump (link: http://jwatch.us/J67gzV) jwatch.us/J67gzV

JW announced that it uncovered 422 pages of FBI documents showing evidence of “cover up” discussions related to the Clinton email system within Platte River Networks, one of the vendors who managed the Clinton email system.

Judicial Watch announced it received 756 pages of newly uncovered emails that were among the materials former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to delete or destroy, several of which were classified.

On "Hannity",
@seanhannity
discussed some key findings from Judicial Watch in regards to the Clinton cover-up: "We are finding out even more devastating information about how the deep state protected Hillary Clinton before turning their forces against @realDonaldTrump ."

Must be pretty confident in the coverup if he's already counterpunching.
