  1. Trump Has Provocative Words for Allies. Congress Does Damage Control

    Eventually they're going to get awfully tired of constantly running after the orange dingbat with a pooper-scooper and cleaning up his messes. I'm more and more convinced that this will end in impeachment, and maybe sooner than we think. Can anyone imagine four whole years like the last two weeks? Or even one year?

    Then of course we get Pence. But at least a Republican theocrat is the devil we know.

    1. Infidel -- I'm sure they're tired of it already. It's not their job to clean up the president's messes. This simply isn't sustainable for four years, so either (1) the Orange Horror will be ejected from office, or (2) we can look forward to four years of offended citizens, shattered global relationships, and disastrous executive decisions.
