    Flynn and one other Trump campaign staffer have pleaded guilty to perjury, and two more senior campaign officials have been indicted. So far, more than 20 members of the White House staff have either been fired or resigned from their positions. Every day there is another story about who will be next to go. Will it be Rex Tillerson, who has been quoted calling Trump a “moron”? Sessions, who has lied repeatedly about his contacts with Russians during the campaign and enraged Trump when he recused himself from the Russia investigation? Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, chairman of a bank in Cyprus used in Russian money laundering and photographed on numerous occasions falling asleep at meetings, including state occasions in Saudi Arabia and in the White House itself?

    See a pattern here? Resignations. Firings. Indictments. Hearings. Special prosecutor. Leaks. Media hordes. And all over Washington, D.C., offices filled with eager beaver investigators burrowing into every corner of the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, the Trump White House and Trump’s business empire.

    The end is nigh, and can’t come soon enough.

    I think it’s quite important to get these two syndromes correct.

    TDS – Trump Derangement Syndrome – is the psychological condition which causes sufferers to abhor President Trump & consider everything that he to be stupid, incompetent, evil or a combinanation of these things.

    TBS – Trump Besotted Syndrome – is the pyschological condition which causes sufferers to adore President Trump & consider him to be a genius who will rescue the USA from the depredations of the liberals who are bent on destroying it.

    I suffer from the TBS. I adore the man. The fun, excitement and action can’t be beat.

    Only one man has had the ”wood” on Trumpy. God bless Boris and Trumpy..

      “The fun, excitement and action can’t be beat.”
      👍🏼 No argument here.

        Nah, Corky and I enjoy TES, “Trump Entertainment Syndrome”: endless fun teasing TDS sufferers and watching them torment themselves and their fellow sufferers.

    What a wonderful religion and moral code.

      A government political stooge empowered to trawl through millions of records over decades in order to find some charges to hang on suitable political victims. Mueller is the Swamp, born, bred and fed by it.
