St. Louis Post-Dispatch Editorial Exposes Trump’s ‘Colossal’ Lie About Obama

“The last administration left us nothing,” Trump said last month.

But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch found that Trump’s own budget documents show the opposite ― exposing what it called “a lie of colossal Trumpian proportions.”

The newspaper’s editorial board said the Trump administration told Congress that the Obama administration left it with everything needed for a pandemic ― and sought big budget cuts from the programs as a result. 

Even Moscow Mitch’s Daughters Have Turned On Him For Becoming Trump’s “Enabler-In-Chief”

Jane Mayer from The New Yorker has a really good piece out about how U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R. KY) path being Trump’s top enabler showcases how Moscow Mitch truly is the Dr. Frankenstein to Trump’s Frankenstein Monster. A number of Never Trumpers like Bill Kristol and Rick Wilson tear McConnell a new one in the article but what’s brutal about this piece is how people who knew and once admired McConnell have turned on him: 

A historian explains why Robert E. Lee wasn’t a hero — he was a traitor

“Lee was no hero. He was neither noble nor wise. Lee was a traitor who killed United States soldiers, fought for human enslavement, vastly increased the bloodshed of the Civil War, and made embarrassing tactical mistakes.

Trump’s Dictator Envy Isn’t Funny Anymore

Yes, our president isn’t very bright; he has little grasp of political concepts, even those that underlie his country’s democratic traditions; he knows almost nothing about history and, worse still, sees nothing wrong with that. But all this has long been clear.

NBC News: Agents for at least 22 foreign governments have spent money at Trump’s properties

According to some expert interpretations and two federal lawsuits, this is illegal: The Constitution specifically prohibits the U.S. president from accepting “emoluments”—gifts, payments, or fees—from foreign governments as means of preventing a presidency from being compromised by whichever foreign sources are willing to offer the most convincing bribes.

Federal Prison Inmates Told Us Why Mueller Totally Blew It

“I don’t give a damn what Mueller didn’t find—it don’t take almost two years to figure out that Trump ain’t nothing but a crime boss.”

…among the news junkies in the federal Bureau of Prisons, Robert Mueller’s finding last month that there was no prosecutable evidence of a conspiracy between Donald Trump and those close to him and the Russians who interfered in the 2016 election landed hard. Not only did it quickly serve to reinforce the longstanding perception among prisoners—mirroring views held by some in the general public—that the game was rigged against those of lesser means, it shattered inmates’ hopes that a clownish villain who preyed on America’s fears of crime might finally get his.
