If Clara isn't interested, I am. I'll be your ghostwriter and/or editor. I've done both professionally.
Thanks from Clara007

“We’re numb to it,” he said. “We wake up in the morning and see the president of the United States is accusing people of crimes without evidence and pronouncing them guilty and saying they should be in jail. That should wake all of us up with a start, but there's been so much of it that we're a little bit numb and that's dangerous.”

Trump is not accusing anybody or asking for the imprisonment of anybody ....He is asking questions that should have been asked.. besides Comey can not hide behind the fact he is no longer employed by the Government...These questions invove actions when he was FBI Diretor, not a private citizen..

That is the most Honest Things Trump said.

Hillary and Comey and McCabe all should be put on trial.

If you think the administration is hemorrhaging personnel now, wait until they all get to serve essentially a lame duck term for two years. The trend to retirements & decisions not to run will also accelerate in Congress on the GOP side, I believe. By the time of the midterms, the candidates for Congress could easily be newbie rookies v. people with @ least some experience in regional & state government. If that happens, then maybe we can break some of the policy logjams in Congress & get the train back on the tracks.
Look out for them setting to work like the tories over here, using their Zionist friends to accuse the opposition of anti-Semitism and keep on doing it for weeks without any serious evidence whatever. Talk about non-news! They are all learning from one another and plan to destroy any real democracy soon

Honest? Please do not blaspheme by using the word "HONEST" and "TRUMP" in the same sentence.
Accusing people of crimes without evidence and pronouncing them guilty and saying they should be in jail....? Repeated by a sitting president?? With no foundation--their first amendment rights? AND their disgust with the PREZ Pants-on-Fire.

Are we living in Zimbabwe? Are we now part and parcel of a dictatorship?
Thanks from imaginethat, iolo and Camelot

No, it's still the US.

Not yet, but if some people have their way....

And considering that Trump's supporters can look right over his utter lack of professionalism evidenced by his holding court via Twitter, while they crucify Comey.

So once more, no, we aren't living in Zimbabwe, but yes, Trump's trajectory for the US could easily include a Trump dictatorship that skin-deep appeared democratic. His base just loves him.

Thanks from Camelot and Clara007
