By far the best place for him.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

Probably the most effective he's been.

8 ( +13 / -5 )

Seems he is in a snit?

Hide-out somewhere in the boonies?

Best he can do. Ain't got much to say anyway.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

2 more years of not seeing him or hearing from while he's in office could be tolerable. He's just trying to write the SOTU though...Back to the usual nonsense soon.

7 ( +9 / -2 )

Probably hanging out with McConnell, also MIA.

Probably hanging out with McConnell, also MIA.

Trump and McConnell both use their respective offices for financial gain,

each is connected to Russia and oil.

If Trump disapears together with all his useless politicians - that would be fantastico!!!

I hope he's not licking his wounds.

He could be continuing work on his awaited thesis on climate science.

He could be continuing work on his awaited thesis on climate science.

I think he's probably on a mad mission trying to find non-partisan historians who present the Bush2 presidency in a positive light.

He is hiding behind his wall.

Wakarimasen: No, he's hiding in his cave.

7 ( +11 / -4 )

Got severely dissed by Coulter, schooled by Pelosi, no wall-no funding, his DNI contradicting everything he said....

He had to seek solace from Stormy...

5 ( +9 / -4 )

In his Man Cave? 

I think I remember a rather disturbing movie about The Wall.  This whole episode is almost as nightmarish.  Music in the movie was better though.

Every man needs a break from Mika, Joe and Lemon, can’t say I blame him.

-12 ( +3 / -15 )

no matter what the man does, liberals complain.

He is the boss, waiting patiently for those around him to prepare the report to his liking. Everyone knows the boss has to sign off and they have until Feb 15. Happens at work everyday.

I can hear Schumer now. “The president showed an absence of leadership so we couldn’t get anything done”. But if he was involved, “we can’t get anything done because the President won’t take a step back and let Congress resolve this in a bipartisan manner”.

Either way, clocks ticking Chuck.

-13 ( +3 / -16 )

He attended a political function at the Trump International Hotel on Monday night.

I hope he made a bundle - I mean I hope he had a nice event.

Meanwhile Dems are starting to “wiggle”

Donald J. Trump continues to be the biggest threat to U.S. national security.

8 ( +11 / -3 )

I can hear Schumer now. “The president showed an absence of leadership so we couldn’t get anything done”. But if he was involved, “we can’t get anything done because the President won’t take a step back and let Congress resolve this in a bipartisan manner”.

You were half right, yet still managed to be completely wrong. Should have read the article you're commenting on.

Said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat: "When the president stays out of the negotiations, we almost always succeed. When he mixes in, it's a formula for failure. So I'd ask President Trump, 'Let Congress deal with it on its own.'"

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

Here's how much of a failure Cadet Bonespurs is: The boy who pretended to be a man who wrote 'The Art Of The Deal' and who lauded himself as a great dealmaker, is basically being told by both sides that the best thing he can do is shut up and sit in the corner.

Trump should offer decriminalizing marijuana for the wall.

To the Democrats - if the wall is immoral, where is the bill to tear down the existing barriers? I'll wait.

-8 ( +2 / -10 )

Trump is the one who needs to "go back to school." He has no comprehension of the difference between the executive branch of the government and the legislative branch. Due to OVERWHELMING opposition from the entire country, there will be NO wall -- so Trump is the one who is wasting everyone's time. Over to you, Trump supporters ... or are there any left anymore??

6 ( +9 / -3 )

OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND. This the only positive thing trump has done in 2 years.

3 ( +6 / -3 )

Finish the wall ffs.
