The problem is that Trump can't really waste his political capital on another confirmation hearing. He'll stick around for a while.

Feeling so safe now that the threat of nuclear war is over...I've been hiding under my desk since 1962
I can now turn my attention to the real national threat...Hill's emails and my neighbor's brown skinned gardener (I know he's up to something...the damn plants grow so big)

Trump had an idea about how to counter the nuclear threat posed by North Korea, which he got after speaking to Russian President Vladimir Putin: If the U.S. stopped joint military exercises with the South Koreans, it could help moderate Kim Jong Un’s behavior.

"Russia should be in this meeting," Trump told reporters upon leaving the White House for the summit, which is being held in Charlevoix, Canada. "They should let Russia come back in, because we should have Russia at the negotiating table."

I go back and forth on this question on a semi-regular basis. What is worse?
Trump supporters being too dumb to see Putin moving Donald around like a marionette. Or Trump supporters recognizing it, and still not caring.

Trump claims that the parents of missing Korean War soldiers routinely asked him to bring their sons’ remains home. He fails to note that given the date of the end of the war, these parents would all be well over 100 years old.

Sums it up perfectly. It's all about the sound bites, substance and facts be damned.

The thing is, trump neither knows nor cares to look up (you know, three seconds to google) when the Korean War was, because those details have no meaning. His narrative is televised improvisational fiction. It sounded good to him, so he ran with it. And if you told him why it’s (bleep), he wouldn’t care, because his audience isn’t any more concerned with details than he is. As long as it feels good...

i thought going after cuomo's dead father was low to say the least but i greatly enjoyed coumo's fiery response:

“My father is dead and buried and was 10 times the man you’ll ever be on your best day!”

This has to be the most embattled administration in US history. Every day another scandal. How is he still in office?

3 million is a pittance to Trump. He won't pay it because it would be an admittance of guilt.

The White House – which has been having trouble filling positions as it bleeds staffers – is now trying to find recruits at a conservative job fair on the Hill.

“Interested in a job at the White House?” is the subject line of an email that was blasted out widely to Republicans on the Hill late Wednesday advertising the upcoming event.


It promises that “representatives from across the Trump administration will be there to meet job seekers of every experience level.” A person familiar with the planning said that Johnny DeStefano, who oversees the White House personnel department, and Sean Doocey, a deputy assistant to the president for presidential personnel, are expected to be on hand, among other officials from the West Wing.

The flyer lists positions open in the White House as well as a handful of government agencies including Defense, Interior, Commerce, Homeland Security, Health & Human Services, NASA, Energy, and Treasury.

The “Executive Branch Job Fair” is scheduled for Friday afternoon in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, according to a flyer attached to the email.

“There are positions currently open and we are looking for the most competent conservatives to recommend,” the flyer, shared with POLITICO, reads.


Only the best people, right?

If they wear their white hoods they can go to the front of the line.

I still cannot understand US Political law and how Trump is still in the white house
Steele report could all be true but there are politicians covering for a traitor

Maybe they could advertise on Craigslist for the jobs fair
I say they advertise on al-jazera
