I don't think this will produce much. Republicans won't care that Ivanka did it and they'll never stop talking about Hillary doing it because that's just the way they are.
If Ivanka destroyed 30,000 classified emails and here’s a server in a bathroom and used a personal Email address for governmental purposes and was Secretary of State, had a history of lying, lying to Congress under oath then I would be the first one to speak out, but that didn’t happen.
Sure, exposing the hypocrisy is always fun, but I get the feeling there are bigger things to go after.
What? Maybe the Democrats should try and come up with ideas for infrastructure to start, you know something useful that the party can say, we did this, they got elected, do something productive.

I get it, but it doesn’t matter that liberals will come up with millions of excuses, this could have been avoided.
plenty of dead and dying trees also were also to blame.
But they never paid close attention to that. Someone in California needs to be fired or Imprisoned.

Dear Leader, Trump, must be disappointed a Russian didn't get the job.
No, I think he’s relieved as well. Congrats.

It's only a matter of time before it becomes open season on journalists (if it wasn't already).
It’s not, only if they are rude and obnoxious and Acosta fits that exact description.
Trump has sent out a powerful message - murder is no hindrance to making money.
Not only Trump, every other world leader, except maybe for Brazil.
What he has done - is doing - is prostituted America: he states clearly, arrogantly and proudly that the Saudis pay enough to be able to make the US roll over and provide the goods.
Not and so much words but we do need them. Does it matter what you want to call it, you can college democracy with some cream puffs, the point is we need the Saudis and the Saudis need us.
And the goods are not a bit of feel-good, but weapons of death.
Yes, we do need the Saudis as a buffer to help us contain Iran as much as possible, not to mention, it helps secure their and the Israelis safety.
So he's also saying that America relies on war and killing, including the bombing of babies, to maintain the lifestyles of its workers.
Sometimes it has to be in order to keep the peace, no one likes or wants a war, but it is often inevitable.
Lifestyles that are also propped up (for the time being) by outdated fossil fuel energy that is steadily destroying the environment and changing the climate.
Well, you can thank the Democrats and the liberals for that. For years the environmentalists have done everything in their power to stop the advancement of domestic fracking In four years since we are not allowed for the most part to get our own oil which we have in abundance, we have to sadly rely on the Mideast oil. At the loud it, we would be way ahead of the game and maybe we could slowly wean ourselves off of it, but as of now, it will take awhile and now with the Dems back in the front seat, I would expect to continue this unhealthy relationship.
MAGA - Make America Grim Again.
With the Dems now Controlling the purse, probably.

There have been bipartisan bills that have been killed by the far right of the GOP. Here's the one the Senate passed in 2013 that the GOP blocked in the House
But there was never support for a wall, back then the GOP wanted an end to chain migration the sealing of our borders and the Democrats wouldn’t go for it. Nice try though.
Chain migration was to be drastically reduced
Not reduced, end it totally and unequivocally.
The visa lottery was to be stopped entirely.
even ones you didn't know about
I’m from a border State, immigration was the main reason I voted for Trump, so I know all the reasons in detail.

What the US and any of its remaining allies need to do is more quickly develop alternatives to burning so much oil and gas.
I totally agree, but until then and until we can replace the millions of cars, machinery and items that need oil, we need the Saudis.
Dinosaurs like Trump and his enablers in the GOP who want to burn larger amounts of fossil fuels (coal? seriously?) need to be replaced.
Ok, so how we going to functions, what is going to happen with the cars in the Plains? Liberals don’t think about that, they just emotionally react as usual.
The US needs to stop subsidizing the oil industry, to stop spending trillions invading sovereign nations to take their resources.
So then liberals and Democrats should step out of the way of tracking in the environmentalists should stop protesting blocking the keystone pipeline and allow for energy independence to grow.
The US needs to stop partnering with brutal regimes that butcher and poison (e.g. dioxin-ate and Novichok-ate) their opposition.
Again, I agree. But as long as the Democrats and liberals are blocking attempts to achieve energy independence, we will always have this unholy alliance.

Since most of the Trumpets wouldn't know Saudi Arabia from Sweden, its not a high priority for genius Donny.
Or like liberals that don’t know the difference between homeland security and economic dependence and the ramifications over alienating the Saudis. I purposely don’t like the outcome of this, don’t like these people, don’t trust them, but I totally understand. Now if you want to throw the US economy in a turmoil in really make it bad for the entire country then go ahead and send Shane the Saudi’s and call out the crown prince and watch what happens, until we can continue to Frak into we can continue our energy independence in the Democrats can’t step out of the way and continue with the Keystone pipeline, we can do this, we won’t have to be beholden to the Saudi‘s and then one day we can tell them to jump off a cliff , but until then we need them.

Yeah, good luck with that, this is a joke, The woman is not on a political stage, she didn’t hide a server in a restroom, she didn’t shred documents or deleted thousands of emails, this is too hilarious, once again our tax dollars are going to be wasted on nothing. Lol

The President has the right voice his opinion, but this should’ve never happened, for years our system has been broken in both side should’ve come together to fix it, it’s not the president’s fault for wanting to have increase border security and just stop chain migration and visa lottery, stop catch and release. I get his frustration, but then what the president can do is make sure that people go through the front in alignment and that they play accordingly and if it takes him for months and months, then so be it, but this should never be allowed in, just because they feel the need they can come in.

You'd think gun supporting politicians would have created a mental health action plan by now.
And the Dems Strike it down every time, looks like Chicago with its already strict gun laws will continue to see the gangs and violence continue.
But my guess is there is nothing at all.

Perhaps Jones should be seated right next to Trump with Hannity on the other side. Trump is a fan of both.
Is that a crime?
Also, I’m sure infowars and those in its edit suite could be useful for future Whitehouse tweets attacking the fake news media.
If it works, why not? Considering what the msm put out everyday, it almost makes Jones look sane.

It is unfortunate that Putin's Puppet, aka Bone Spurs, is so ignorant. US Navy seals embarked on their mission to get rid of Osama bin Laden within days of receiving actionable intelligence. It is not their fault that it took so long to find him. It was not their job to find him, only to act upon the intelligence.
There was a chance to kill OBL back in 1998, but the President decided at the last minute not to pull the trigger.....
Likewise, the "President's" criticism of how California has managed the forests in this state does not reflect reality. Sixty percent of the forests here are on federal land, and he cut the budget for maintaining the forests. The Camp Fire that is currently burning started near Pulga, CA, on federal land. But sure, blame someone else.
I disagree, he knew exactly what he was talking about.

Are you even serious ?!
Not a concession many were making to Hilary.
She was Secretary of State and front runner for the Democrat party in the Presidential campaign, huge difference, not to mention the access that Hillary had to the most secretive and sensitive documents.
Someone who cannot take on a message like that should not be in public office.
Well, if we go by that, a lot of people in Washington on both sides would be thrown out of office, there’d be nobody left.

Excuse for hypocrisy from the right #1) She's not running for president (she's only doing his job).
If she were running for public office, I would agree with you, but she’s not. But I do think that now at this point she should be doing this anymore.

You're right, he doesn't have to sit and take valid criticism. But in fighting it, he is wasting time and effort fighting,
Ok, that’s your personal opinion, I personally don’t think so.
Of course you wouldn't. But in all fairness to Trump, he makes a much better president than you ever would.
I agree 100%!
-10 ( +0 / -10 )
Of course not. No one is saying that it does.
But if I were the president of a company, and someone criticized my management, I wouldn't demean their military service as a way to get back at them. That's where you and I separate
Yes, we just have a difference of opinion.
The difference being that his insults were insults, abusive, unfounded personal slurs, while theywere merely telling it like it is. Criticism is not an insult, unless it's false criticism.
Doesn't matter, he doesn’t have to sit and take it, I wouldn’t, Doesn’t matter who you are or what your rank is. I don’t go around insulting people, but if they take a dig at me, they can expect a comeback.

Um, no, rules differ depending on the situation.
Not concerning the President and his willingness or unwillingness to grant Acosta an Interview or even camera time, it all depends on his conduct and demeanor, if Trump decides to pull his pass again and issue him a daily pass, he can do that and that might be better actually.
-1 ( +2 / -3 )
No, rules are rules and if they are not followed then there should be consequences. The judge has the final say as well as the President.

Lots of people say insulting things. The difference is that if I see someone in uniform I don't respond by demeaning their military service.
I understand, but wearing the uniform doesn’t give you the right to insult anyone you see fit to just like being President doesn’t shield you from insults and condemnation.
You and Trump do.
I do not.

Insulting McCain and Gold Star families
They insulted him as well
skipping ceremonies because of a little bad weather,
Apparently they were’s of security issues that the Secret Service were concerned about, it would’ve been stupid for the president not to heed their advice.
sending the troops to the border over Thanksgiving on nothing but a political stunt, now this - no one in uniform or who has worn the uniform respects this charlatan - and if you are for Trump, then you are by default a non-supporter of our military
Sorry, I don’t buy that for a second and I am a big supporter of our military and I think it’s great that he’s trying to do this and to secure the borders and or at least to deter people from trying to get in illegally.

Yes, that’s right.

I am hoping that the main stream media will FINALLY come out and call him what he is, an old fart showing signs of dementia with delusions of grandeur!
If they don’t call any of the Senior Democrats out for their failing memories, don’t them to call on the President.
I would also remind you that the Bush Administration chose to ignore the fact that nearly all of the hijackers were SAUDI citizens with ties to the Royals.
No, they knew, but needed to continue the relationship, the same as ever other President.
With whom Trump continues to enjoy a cozy relationship.
Which he needs to.

The White House's letter made clear his credentials could be threatened again. The officials said that at future press conferences, each reporter would be limited to a single question, with follow-up questions permitted at the discretion of the president or staff. It adds that "'Yielding the floor' includes ... physically surrendering the microphone to White House staff."
The letter said failure to abide by the rules "may result in suspension or revocation of the journalist's hard pass."
Seems pretty reasonable and fair to me.
