So my optimistic liberal friends seem to think that yesterday's Cohen/Manafort legal developments are going to be the downfall President Trump. I am concerned that they are underestimating the desperation of the Republicans, and the audacity of this president. I wonder if we are in for a long ugly time of it. What do you think?
A lot of people don't understand it's all Faux News now. Their chosen media is going to tell them what they want to hear, in this case that "This is it, this time Trump is done for!" Sigh. I don't know what's going to happen, but Trump is right about one thing, all mainstream news outlets are fake news now.
The first thing is that the dems need to get the house. And maybe make progress in the Senate. The events of the last few days, while on their own, aren't enough....but they are important steps. I have no doubt there is MUCH more to come. We are dealing with, essentially, a crime family.
My rational conservative friends that are walking away from Trump's GOP don't seem to be as optimistic as my liberal friends that his will make much of a difference, or move Trump's disapproval rating down enough for Trump's protectorate in congress to act in any way against him. As long as the GOP is getting THEIR judges appointed, they are fine with anything the Whitehouse says or does.
