Well he is certainly a veteran of serious self-promotion.
I hear that even though this impeachment is proceeding he will most likely still get voted back in due to the volatility for the country and all the issues relating to the re-election of a new president.
What a sad sorry sack of such epic and shitty proportions this situation is.
He lives up to his last name and pretty much Trumps everyone with his loose cannon mouth and political corruptness. It is a bit unfortunate though that he still ignores the hairdressing budget most of the time. I think if he halved what he spent on the tangerine skin rub, then he would have enough left for a decent f**king haircut.
Anyway, well done. You've proved what a laughing stock of the world he is becoming.
Trouble is, he is still at the helm and his efforts will have a roll on effect for many.

God help us all.

Cheers P

    Thanks, P.

    The man has caused untold damage to the States and the huge rift he has created will take many years to repair. My sincere hope is that he will actually be removed from office. From where I'm sitting, the evidence of impeachable offences is overwhelming, but the Republicans cling grimly to defending him so he may yet make it for an attempted re-election.

Sadly, the answer could be any on that list. I still do not like the SOB and foresee never liking him in the near future........

I had not heard this, but I don't doubt it. The veterans deserve the money. They are the ones who have fought and often suffered to preserve our freedoms. Thanks for the information.

Gee Steve,
Surely you misjudge his motives. Unless he became President, he would not be able do so much good in the world viz. Syria, where he helped the Turks wipe out some pesky Kurds and enabled the setting free of a few hundred terrorist prisoners just to keep the game fair. As to his portrait, I have it on good authority from a White House leak, that he intends to have a copy made for each every man, women and child who will vote for him. This will keep some disadvantaged artists in employment for years.

    Thanks, Reg.
    I am becoming a little obsessed with this story. History of some sort in the making, and this time I have the opportunity to follow the ups and downs in some detail, thanks to semi-retirement and CNN!

    I appreciated your tongue in cheek response. I've tried humour on this topic, but it's time to get serious.

Unfortunately, I don't think this is the worst of the offenses. If he has been doing unethical interactions with foreign governments, this is far worse and endangers national security, the thing that our veterans fought for.

    Thank you. Of course it is not the worst. We won't get to know the worst until he is long gone from office. You are right - the involvement of Ukraine and the pandering to Russia put this in the realm of 'high crimes.' I look forward to seeing him impeached, even if the hypocrites on the Republican side of the aisle refuse to convict him in the Senate.

I'm not surprised, Steve. I understand that there's a clinical narcissistic condition from which he suffers. And you know what happened to Narcissus.

I hope on this Veterans Day, apart from parades and speeches, that those who put themselves in harm's way will receive proper health care. The "thanks of a grateful nation" doesn't pay medical bills or eradicate PTSD.

Thanks for sharing.

Blessings Julia

    Thanks, Julia. I had to brush up on exactly what did happen to Narcissus. Trump is certainly in love with himself, but I can't see him committing suicide...

    Not sure how he can stand there and address the armed forces with a straight face.

    Hi Steve, I have faith that he's going to commit political Hari Kari one of these fine days.

    Can't wait for them to actually get him on the stand to testify. He won't be able to help himself from blurting out half a dozen incriminating things.

I am NOT a Trump supported, but I am getting tired of false news being reported as the truth.

What's True
The money raised during a Donald Trump-hosted event for veterans was donated to the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

What's False
The money was given to veterans' organizations and was not used for Trump's presidential campaign.

The money raised during Trump's special event to benefit veterans initially went to the Donald J. Trump Foundation, but it's inaccurate to say that the money ended up in the candidate's personal account or will be used to fund his presidential campaign.

In response to queries over the matter, on 31 May 2016 Donald Trump held a press conference to announce that he gave "close to six million dollars" to veterans' groups and that the press "should be ashamed of themselves" for asking questions about the money he donated.

"I have never received such bad publicity for doing such a good job," Trump said in a press conference at Trump Tower in Manhattan. He issued a list of the veterans groups who received the money, saying that "As of this moment, [the total amount donated] is $5.6 million. All of the money has been spent."

    Thanks for reviewing.

    Check out what happened in the court settlement - of the case that Trump said he would never settle!

    Truimp via his lawyers admitted that the $2.5 million was used for personal purposes. The Trump Foundation was sternly criticised by the judge for a flagrant pattern of illegality. He himself cannot operate another charity without it being monitored by the courts and his three children who were officers of the charity all have to attend court-ordered training.

    I can provide all the links to reporting of this shameful event if you like, but it's not hard to find.

    Trump himself will tell any lie to avoid appearing to be in the wrong, but the facts in this case speak for themselves.

    Have a great day.

    Steve

That's awful, but I'm not surprised, and not just because it's Trump. From his perspective, it's probably, "when you support me, you're supporting veterans. I'm in the best position to help them." I've run into that kind of convoluted thinking before.

    Thanks, Darlene. he is a compulsive liar too, so he can speechify about how much he admires and respects the veterans, even though he has just been proven guilty of degrauding them.

    Steve

reply by Darlene Franklin on 17-Nov-2019
    I won't argue. I've found it interesting that what we were told was discussed in t he telephone conversation with the Ukranian president don't resemble what was said. I think dissembling is the way of politics, both sides of t he aisle.

reply by the author on 17-Nov-2019
    On the contrary, what the whistleblower reported was remarkably accurate (despite what Trump continues to claim) Nearly every aspect has been confirmed by other witnesses... Yes, there is some dissembling on both sides, but Trump is the absolute worst.

What a way to pay homage to the people he is supposedly trying to help. These are part of what we as followers are never informed of and since I lost my fiancé in the Vietnam war, I am appalled at the idea of a life means so little. Thank you
