I can imagine the Chumph can’t wait to get his stooges on the benches across America so he can twist and destroy the Constitution…
But right now he is stuck with those that are in place.
Liars, traitors, and scumbags like Nunes and Chaffetz have eliminated any trust in Republicans putting Patriotism over Party…
Nearly three-quarters of Americans say they want an independent, non-partisan commission instead of Congress to investigate Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Seventy-three percent of respondents prefer the independent investigation, versus 16 percent who pick Congress.
Still, a majority of Americans — 54 percent — believe that Congress should investigate whether there was contact between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, which is essentially unchanged from February’s NBC/WSJ poll.
That includes 84 percent of Democrats and 51 percent of independents who want to see this congressional investigation, but just 21 percent of Republican respondents who want it.
Yet a combined 61 percent of Americans say they have little to no confidence in Congress conducting a fair and impartial investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.
Only a combined 39 percent say they have “some” or a “great deal” of confidence in Congress conducting a fair and impartial investigation.
These numbers come as committees in both the House and Senate are looking into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election. But the House investigation erupted in controversy after House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes, R-Calif., suggested that Trump and his associates may have been monitored by U.S. intelligence officials during the transition.
Nunes stepped aside from the investigation earlier this month.
Maybe we will get lucky, and the Chumph will get food-poisoning from his own crappy kitchen and die.
Problem is, at the rate he is bringing people to his bar, their negligence could well take out a world leader from another country.
The Chumph will likely issue and executive order getting rid of those pesky food safety regulations.
Health inspectors have found 13 safety violations at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, including “dangerous” raw fish and food stored in broken down coolers.
The Miami Herald reports that inspectors found these safety violations in Mar-a-Lago’s kitchen just days before Trump hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Three of the violations were deemed “high priority” for the club, meaning they needed to be addressed immediately to prevent the spread of illness-producing bacteria on plates in the dining room.
Among other things, inspectors found the Mar-a-Lago kitchen staff failed to properly treat raw fish to remove parasites before serving it; stored ham at a temperature of 57 degrees, or 16 degrees higher than regulations allow; and failed to properly maintain coolers, which were ordered to be repaired immediately.
The 13 violations inspectors hit Mar-a-Lago with this year were a record for the club, which had 11 violations in 2016 and just two in 2015.
Republicans are at it again trying to kill Big Bird. Seems they shoulda learned from the last go-round.
The Chumph wants to kill Sesame Street so he can but some tanks to parade down Constitution Avenue on May Day.
That isn’t going to happen.
The Chumph’s budget is headed down the same dead end road as his Obamacare repeal…DOA.
It appears that the American Health Care Act isn’t the only part of President Donald Trump’s agenda that is getting skewered in the polls.
In a press release on Friday, Quinnipiac University announced the results of their latest poll on Trump’s budget. It finds that more than four-out-of-five Americans oppose cutting funds to medical research (87 percent to 9 percent), new road and transit projects (84 percent to 13 percent), and after school and summer school programs (83 percent to 14 percent).
By somewhat smaller margins, voters are also opposed to eliminating the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (79 percent to 17 percent), the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (70 percent to 25 percent), and the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities (66 percent to 27 percent).
Like the separate Quinnipiac University Poll released on Thursday, this new survey indicates a significant lack of public support for President Trump’s legislative agenda outside of his own Republican base. The poll from Thursday found that 74 percent of Americans oppose cutting funds to Medicaid (only 22 percent support it) and 56 percent oppose the Obamacare repeal bill (only 17 percent support it). By contrast, only 41 percent of Republicans supported the Obamacare repeal bill (24 percent opposed it), although even a majority of Republicans did not want to cut Medicaid funds (54 percent opposed compared to 39 percent supporting).
Friday’s poll also contained mixed news for Trump regarding support for his programs within the Republican Party. While an overwhelming majority support his Mexican wall proposal (74 percent to 24 percent), 50 percent of Republicans — and 74 percent of total voters — don’t want Trump to lower taxes on the wealthy (43 percent and 22 percent support him doing so, respectively).
Repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a pathetically flawed Trumpcare is Dead on Arrival as the sponsors are forced again to cancel the House vote.
Donald Trump announced Friday that the House of Representatives would postpone a planned vote on the American Health Care Act, the Republican bill to repeal Obamacare.
The news was first reported by Robert Costa of the Washington Post, who spoke to the president directly.
The announcement came while a debate over the bill was still playing out in the House chamber, with GOP leaders realizing they lacked the votes to prevail.
It was not immediately clear when Congress plans to resume consideration of repeal ― or whether it will do so at all.
The postponement is a devastating defeat for Trump and Ryan, and a major setback in the crusade against Obamacare that has defined Republican Party politics for seven years.
House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
“We just pulled it,” President Trump told the Washington Post in a telephone interview.
The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers – and the defeat represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.).
The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. The decision also casts doubt on the GOP’s ability to govern and to advance other high-stakes agenda items, including tax reform and infrastructure spending. Ryan is still without a signature achievement as speaker – and the defeat undermines Trump’s image as a skilled dealmaker willing to strike compromises to push his agenda forward.
The Chumph can’t tell the truth and he can’t lead.
