Trump claims the stock market will crash if he is impeached. A pretty good scare tactic since most Americans only care about money, but the stock market is way overvalued and will crash soon anyways. If you own stock, sell and get out before the crash.

Oh Noes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Trump loses pecker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dave Miller said...

So... the WSJ is reporting that Pecker has immunity and is essentially confirming the Cohen narrative.

Is it still fake news?

Also, Cohen didn't flip, as Trump seems to believe. He chose, absent any consideration or plea deal from Mueller, to tell the truth and let the chips fall where they may. I know that's hard for Trump and his minions to grasp, but it is, in fact [not an alternative fact either] what happened.

So what the heck was Trump talking about in his interview? No one flipped. Cohen did not lie. And there is an audio tape of Trump discussing with Cohen what Trump said in the interview never happened.

A Junior High Cub Reporter could have done a better interview.

Dave It's been obvious to people who actually can see what's in front of their noses that DJT is a morally corrupt man. Last April he was on record saying he knew nothing about payments to Stormy Daniels or McDougall. Lie. People who understand that DJT is morally corrupt weren't surprised, since we know he's a congenital liar. Now Trump is pretending that Cohen was not really someone who was with him "not too much." Lie.

Let's see what the CEO of the Inquierer has to tell us about the Liar-in-Chief.

What kind of president did the Trumpistas think he'd make when he's been a cheat, a bully, and a liar all his life?

Trump is being cozy toward Manafort, complimenting him on not "flipping" because Manafort probably knows a lot more about Trump's corruption and dirty Russian involvments.

What a mess. What a dirty mess!

Perhaps OT but... Neither American republicans or a majority of American conservatives are supportive of our democratic republican values or true conservatism any longer. What they now support is authoritarianism with the illusory veneer of a democratic republic. tRump, the gerrymandered congress, and all those frenzied MAGA folks who like what they hear but don't bother to inform themselves of actual facts and truth are responsible for the Ignorant Orange Turd and his corrupt administration.
