The Republicans seem to be unhappy because Mulvaney accidentally revealed the truth, not because of the damning substance of that truth. They’ve abandoned their country and the traditions of their party in favor of an obscene hero-worship of their deranged leader.

This whole thing is just a rehash of the Russia saga.

In the end, it'll play out the same way with Libs grinding their teeth in frustration and beer-chugging Trumpsters high-fiving each other as if their favorite player just scored a touchdown.

Watch and enjoy the spectacle.

"Did he also mention to me in the past the corruption that related to the DNC server? Absolutely, no question about that." Mulvaney continued: "That's why we held up the money."

There ya have it.

For Mick Mulvaney, the hits just keep on coming.

Mulvaney, like Perry and so many other Trump appointees, is a lesser light never known for being much more than a yes-man to the GOP establishment and others in the deep swamp. The Trump administration will be remembered as one of the worst in US history in terms of the quality of individuals making it up. Rot starts at the top, and is maintained hiring sycophants. And appointing family members. Among an array of others.

Mulvaney said: “At the end of the day he [Trump] still considers himself to be in the hospitality business.”

Ha! That's why he cannot hold on to his staff and has no friends - only hostages, who will turn on him on a dime.

Keep on digging your own ditch, Mick. Your boss who you kiss up to so much ain't gonna save ya. No way, Jose.

Mulvaney has rendered the nation a service. Now the Dems should stop looking at the Republican's gift horse in the mouth and get on with the job of knackering the old nag. We can all be thankful that the presidential palooka with "the best words" (he just added "Esperanto") also hires (and fires) "the best people". So it goes, dim and ever dimmer.

At least he doesn’t have a secret Twitter account like that supposed beacon of morality Mitt Romney.

The media continues to spin the Hunter (gatherer) Biden scandal into a Trump scandal.

Truly a world upside down at CNN et al.

Remember, what you are seeing, watching, witnessing, reading, hearing, thinking, feeling, considering or wondering about is not what's happening. Just go back to sleep. We have the situation under control. We will give you commands at a later time.

If you disagree with this, just get over it!

If it's so secret, how do you know about it?

Lmao! Yeah! It's the medias fault that Donny went chasing a conspiracy theory and landed in the middle of an impeachment inquiry.
