    ROTFLMAO!!!!! The wheels are comin' off the Mad Dog, lol...

    Trump pressured Senate Intel, GOP to end Russia investigation, report says

    President Trump exhorted Senate Republican leaders, including the chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, to bring its investigation into Russian activities during last year's election to a swift conclusion, The New York Times reported late Thursday.
    Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., told the paper that Trump told him "something along the lines of, 'I hope you can conclude this as quickly as possible.'" Burr said he told the president that "when we have exhausted everybody we need to talk to, we will finish."
    The Times report, which cited half a dozen lawmakers and aides, claimed that Trump had complained to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., that he was not doing enough to bring the investigation to an end. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., another member of the intelligence committee, said Trump implored him to "wrap up this investigation" while the two were on board Air Force One over the summer.
    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a former chair of the intelligence committee, said Trump's requests were "inappropriate" and represented "pressure that should never be brought to bear by an official when the legislative branch is in the process of an investigation."

    But Burr told the Times that Trump was not aware of any irregularity in his requests, due to his lack of experience in politics. He added that the president believes the Russia investigation "hampers his ability to project the strength he needs to convey on foreign policy."
    The Senate Intelligence Committee is one of three congressional panels investigation Russian interference in the 2016 campaign. The others are the House intelligence committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed by the Justice Department in May to oversee an investigation into potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

    So.... The President wants the investigation done as quickly as possible, so he can do his job...

    BREAKING NEWS!!!! !!!!! !!!!!!

    Gee, I thought you were dead. Get popped for hanging around malls a little too much, a la Moore, and you've made bail? You're so fucking stupid, you don't understand how inappropriate it is for one of the subjects-the MAIN subject-of an investigation to in any way, shape, or form to try to influence said investigation, ESPECIALLY when the subject is in Twittler's position. You don't understand that, because YOU'RE A FUCKING MORON!!!!!

    The New York Daily New said it best:
    Donald Trump is a madman: The President's Wednesday Twitter spasm confirms what many Americans have long suspected


    Editorials
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

    Wednesday, November 29, 2017, 11:32 AM
    After his latest spasm of deranged tweets, only those completely under his spell can deny what growing numbers of Americans have long suspected: The President of the United States is profoundly unstable. He is mad. He is, by any honest layman’s definition, mentally unwell and viciously lashing out.
    Some might say we are just suffering through the umpteenth canny, calculated presidential eruption designed to distract the nation from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, or perhaps from unpopular legislation working its way through Congress.
    Quite possible. But Occam’s razor, and the sheer strangeness of Trump’s behavior, leads us to conclude that we are witnessing signs of mania.
    Early Wednesday morning, Donald Trump or whomever was manning his Twitter account retweeted, seemingly at random, three videos of supposed violence against Christians by Muslims.
    Trump tweets 'fake news' anti-Muslim video from far-right leader
    At least one of those was long ago debunked. The words of the tweet spread to Trump’s 43.6 million followers referred to a violent young man pictured in a video as a “Muslim migrant.” The perpetrator appears to have been neither a Muslim nor a migrant.
    Trump is broadcasting discredited hate videos even as he now tells multiple people in his inner circle that the real, verified “Access Hollywood” video in which he boasted of grabbing women “by the p---y” — words for which he has already publicly apologized — was falsified.
    The most powerful man in the world

    (Susan Walsh/AP)
    By engaging in the little Islamophobia-fest, Trump amplified the handiwork of a leader of Britain First, a fringe, far-right political movement that is the rough equivalent of America’s white nationalist alt-right.

    Trump wasn’t done. Just before 7 a.m., he urged the nation to “boycott Fake News CNN” — the nation’s most powerful person targeting a media company that happens to be locked in a legal fight with his own Justice Department over a merger.
    GOP senators advance Trump's picks for top environmental posts
    Then, upon learning of the firing of NBC’s Matt Lauer for workplace sexual harassment, came the real unraveling.
    “When will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!” he tweeted, aiming unhinged ire at the network’s news boss.
    This is a day after North Korea fired what was, by all accounts, an ICBM. During a week when Congress is in the throes of delicate negotiations on taxes and the budget.
    And before our eyes, the President is spinning in a Tasmanian devil’s rage about American news networks.
    Trump speaks with China, vows 'major sanctions' on North Korea
    There was more.
    “When will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?” Trump then tweeted — demanding the firing of a private citizen who happens to run MSNBC, a news channel he hates.
    “And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”
    Stop. Read it again. Google it if you must.
    President Trump revives birther claims against Obama


    The President of the United States just casually accused a congressman-turned-TV-host of murder because an intern died in his Florida office in 2001.
    It is a terrible shame that we have to address the substance of this base smear, but these are the indignities forced upon all of us in the age of Donald Trump.
    Lori Klausutis, 28, was found dead behind a desk. An autopsy was conducted: She had been feeling unwell; she had heart problems that caused her to fall and hit her head. That is what the medical examiner concluded, finding no signs of foul play.
    There is no evidence connecting Scarborough, who barely knew Klausutis, to her death. None. Zero. Zip.

    Just like there is no credible evidence connecting Donald Trump to the alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl in 1996, a crime of which he was accused in a since-dropped civil lawsuit that has never held up to scrutiny.
    One might think a man falsely accused of such a serious crime, who pledged to “open up” libel laws to make it easier for public figures like him and Scarborough to sue people who spread lies about them, would think twice before hurling such an incendiary false charge at someone else.
    To think that is to assume that Donald Trump is well. He is not well.

    It's hilarious how you keep babbling about "deflecting" when you constantly engage in that yourself: Again, you completely ignored the observation that you're so fucking stupid, you don't understand how inappropriate it is for one of the subjects-the MAIN subject-of an investigation to in any way, shape, or form to try to influence said investigation, ESPECIALLY when the subject is in Twittler's position-and, btw, after not getting the answer he wanted from Burr, he then went to other members to get THEM to get Burr to back off, is THAT part of doing his job, too? Again, you don't understand any of that, because YOU'RE A PSYCHOTIC FUCKING MORON!!!!!

    Did you not read the article, you idiot? "Republicans played down Mr. Trumpís appeals, describing them as the actions of a political newcomer unfamiliar with what is appropriate presidential conduct." Does the phrase "ignorance of the law is no excuse" mean anything to you, asshole? Not to mention, they've been saying that "political newcomer" shit for close to a year. A federal prosecutor with 25 years experience said the actions were very damning against Twittler, and I think I'll take HER opinion-not to mention the excuses of Republican boot lickers who nevertheless felt it necessary to "play down" what was done, over the opinion of psychotic moron.
