The truth only matters to Trump, his supporters, and his appointments. Libs don't care about the truth, which is why they constantly attack Truthful Trump using Trump's own words and actions.

This isn’t an administration, it’s a RICO enterprise.

This isn’t an administration, it’s a RICO enterprise.

Very well stated. And that's why there is fear and desperation in Trump-world as Mueller, who had taken down many crime families, nears taking down this one...

Well, he can return to his "job" as a fake geologist now.

He has been dogged by ethics probes, including one centered on a Montana land deal involving a foundation he created and the chairman of an energy services company, Halliburton, that does business with the Interior Department.

Investigators also are reviewing Zinke's decision to block two tribes from opening a casino in Connecticut and his redrawing of boundaries to shrink a Utah national monument. Zinke has denied wrongdoing.

The Associated Press reported last month that the department's internal watchdog had referred an investigation of Zinke to the Justice Department.

Zinke's travels with his wife, Lola Zinke, also had come under scrutiny.

Interior's inspector general's office said Zinke allowed his wife to ride in government vehicles with him despite a department policy that prohibits nongovernment officials from doing so. The report also said the department spent more than $25,000 to provide security for the couple when they took a vacation to Turkey and Greece.

Remind you of anyone - perhaps a previous campaign manager and convicted felon who used to enjoy wearing ostrich feather sport coats (now sporting an orange jumpsuit)...

This is the type of slime that infests Trump-world - grifters, fraudsters, and yet to be convicted felons...

Impeach this crime family head and send him off to Leavenworth with all the other mobsters...

Zinke, 57, played a leading part in Trump's efforts to roll back federal environmental regulations and promote domestic energy development.

Certain jobs should be filled by tree hugging environmentalists and people who respect the original peoples who were in the USA before Europeans arrived. The person overseeing the national parks is one of those positions.

Maybe if the Democrats would allow people to do their job it wouldn’t be.

The Democrats should be allowing people to do their jobs to the same degree that the Republicans allowed people to do their jobs during the Obama administration. No more, no less.

Sucks when your actions come back to bite you in the a$$, don't it!

Agreed! It's the democrats obstructionism, which they learned from the republicans, that is responsible for the number of criminals in Trunp's administration. That's just simple logic. ROFL!

Almost 2 years in the job - must be some kind of record under Trump.

It's not. Quite a few people in the Trump administration have been in the job since day one. Special Assistant Kellyanne Conway and HUD Secretary Ben Carson, just to name two of many examples.

They did do they jobs, but no one was trying to systematically get them out of office.

Sucks when your actions come back to bite you in the a$, don't it!

No, it’s not about sucking or not sucking, liberals really sound like a bunch of kids in the sandbox. It’s not about tit for tat. The Democrats did what they did and as bad as Obama was and as dissatisfied as millions were, people just patiently waited until the elections to escort them out, this is far different. The Democrats, especially the new bunch are so idiotic radicals they don’t even want to let the process play out, if they can sabotage these people, they’ll do whatever they can. Liberals don’t need to be so obnoxiously vindictive all the time.

Are you sure it's not two of two?

Heh, sorry, I couldn't hear you over the roar of the echoing birtherism. LOCK HER UP! DRAIN THE SWAMP!

You seem to be getting frustrated that your inconsistencies and hypocrisies are finally becoming exposed due to you trying to define morality as a political ideology, then having to deal with the inherent contradictions in that.

Well all I have to say is boo-frickin-hoo. Like we care that you're frustrated that you have ruined any credibility you may have had. If you want to have credibility, you need to be credible. If you have no credibility, you should have been credible.

Cue: blah blah Liberals are worse blah blah

Actually, I’m not and when you talk about morality to liberals is as far as Jupiter.

Strange, lol...relax, it’s not that serious. But on a serious not, it matters not what liberals say and this entire frustration talk. I have no reason to be frustrated, I Just feel sorry that liberals feel like they have the need to be vindictive, weak, small and petty, but funny.

If you want to have credibility, you need to be credible.

Well, Democrats will never reach that plateau...sadly.

LMFAO! Explain to me what is moral about cheating on Wife No. 1 with Wife No. 2, then cheating on Wife No. 2 with Wife No. 3, then cheating on Wife No. 3 with a porn star and playboy bunny, then paying off the porn star and bunny, then lying about that to conspire to influence an election....

led the audience in a round of applause for the U.S. oil and gas industry.

An essential part of being Secretary of the Interior.

Zinke is close to the president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, and publicly expressed his interest in a Cabinet post when Trump visited Montana in May 2016.

Absolutely not swamp-like behavior.

Zinke's travels with his wife, Lola Zinke, also had come under scrutiny.

Absolutely not swamp-like behavior.

Liberals need to get off their high horse and get with the winning team.

Nothing, Trump likes women and Trump has always been like that, so what? We all knew he liked women as if his affairs were a surprise to us. As long as he doesn’t bring it to the WH, I could care less what a person does in his/her household. Besides, there is no evidence whatsoever that this influenced the election or is there something that Democrats know that the rest of the public doesn’t? Or do they have a close relationship with Mueller? Proof please.

Implicate? Ok, not charged, not indicted and not convicted and won’t be removed and then what?

Impervious to liberal indoctrination, yes.

Tragic, but Wiener and Clinton were equally as bad, Clinton more so because he was on the job.

When your President is implicated in not one, but six federal investigations, and the only thing you can say is "he's not charged, indicted, or convicted (yet)", you know things are bleak....

No, it just means, the Democrats are setting themselves up for a monumental failure. 100%.

No, it's denial...

Washington Democrats should realize, it’s ok to be wrong, no shame in it.

"Ryan Zinke was one of the most toxic members of the cabinet in the way he treated our environment, our precious public lands, and the way he treated the govt like it was his personal honey pot," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of the New York tweeted"

Chuck Schumer is one of the most toxic members of Congress.

Name a Democrat that is under six separate federal investigations....

So I assume your exhortation for 2020 will be: Vote for the draft-dodging, pervert, porn adulterer!!!

Guess it fits - MAGA - Make Adultery Great Again.....
