    I find it funny how some of Trumps supporters and the american media claim the USA is winning the trade war when China's GDP is like 5% and the USA has like a 1.5%.

    By the time they enter a recession we'll be living in Mad Max.

      Trump just directed a government agency to falsify weather data + personally doctored a weather map, because he was embarrassed over making a false statement about a Hurricane's storm path.

      What do you suppose he'll do when his trade war battered economy goes into recession???

      (and how do you think the markets will react to the uncertainty of not knowing how badly the numbers are being fudged, if this White House actually has to show some semblance of leadership in a real crisis)

        Hot News:
        John Bolton just got kicked out of Trumps administration. Probably for failing with his coup in Venezuela.

        That's hilarious if true.

        Well I've been saving up cash because I figured he'd crash the economy sooner than it would have happened. I mean it's not going to be pretty but hopefully I can make some good investments when everything is devalued.

                  Friendly reminder that that's where Trump is trying to redirect money presently allocated for natural disaster preparedness + emergency response.

                    So, this Ukraine thing seems to be heating up. Latest news is that Trump threatened to withhold military aid if the Ukrainian President didn't launch an investigation into Joe Biden's son.

                    Now Pelosi has apparently changed her tune on impeachment and has been "quietly" reaching out to congressional leaders about moving forward with an impeachment inquiry.

                    Good stuff.

                      Pipe dream or not, his (first) term is already almost over. At this point, it's like... why even bother?

                        Power statement. If they can launch an inquiry, force the administration to hand over all the transcripts they're currently hiding, and prove that Trump abused his power as the president to dig up dirt on his political opponent it will give democrats a huge bucket of ammo to use in the upcoming general elections. Not to mention they'll force Republicans in the senate to defend something blatantly illegal and impeachable or to actually vote for impeachment of their party's president. Either way, it severely weakens the party and bolsters the democrats.

                        Of course, Pelosi is shrew as fuck. She's made a public showing stating that the White House needs to had over the transcripts from the phone call with the Ukranian President and has even had the attorney general (I think it was) state that it's within Congress' right to see the document, given the circumstances. And she's made it abundantly clear, without actually uttering the word impeachment, that she'll launch the inquiry just to see the transcript that the White House is hiding. She's a beast. She's making certain that she parades this transcript around as the reason an inquiry even needs to be launched so that, in the event it's a big nothingburger again, she has a defense to protect the party's moderates as much as possible against backlash from their constituents.

                        As much as I don't like Pelosi, she knows how to play the game.

                          Pelosi is as crass an opportunist as crass opportunists come; but one thing she's always been really, really good at is doing political math.

                          The way she's stayed in power all these years at the head of the Democratic Party is by correctly gauging where all the elected officials in the party are at, and making sure that her position on any given issue at any given time aligns with what the majority of them are trying to do.

                          She was never against impeachment on principled grounds. She was doing math and seeing that it wasn't politically advantageous for her to support impeachment, because the numbers weren't there.

                          The day she sees there's a clean House majority in favor of impeachment is the day she'll flip on the issue.

                          I'm not holding my breath on Nancy Pelosi having a sudden change of heart and doing something because its a thing that should be done, rather than because she's crunched the numbers and the math checks out.

                          But it at the very least sounds like she has a sense Trump extorting a foreign leader with threats of unfavorable foreign policy treatment unless they open a frivolous criminal investigation that would be politically damaging to Joe Biden + dangling military aid as a bribe to obtain something of personal value may have changed the numbers.

                          And out of an abundance of caution, she is re-checking her math.

                            What gets me is that this asshole is literally abusing his power as the President to threaten a foreign leader in order to dig up dirt on his political opponent, and yet a family member on Facebook posted, just 20 minutes ago, that she voted for him because he wanted to get the "poison" out of politics.

                            This is why I call conservatives stupid.

                              Yepppppp. I have an uncle who voted for him for pretty much the same reason. And the fucker lives in Pennsylvania, so his vote actually matters.


                              Voting for Trump because you're tired of toxic politics is like drinking drain cleaner because Coca-Cola is bad for you.

                                Yep. The family member I mentioned is in South Carolina, so not really an important vote in the general, but a fairly important one for the primaries.

                                      Can't wait for Trevor Noah, Colbert and Meyers to make fun of this. But I think that girl needs to learn some respect.
