  1. While the rest of America shuts down, Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues his work rooting out corruption deep inside President Trump’s inaugural committee. Just this Monday his legal team filed a joint status report under seal with Sam Patten’s defense attorneys. (Under seal = plenty more to be revealed).

  2. Warren should be not as bad as Hillary Clinton, but the Democrats need to find someone who will be perceived by enough voters as not as bad as Trump.

      Sen warren even air brushed may not pass master. Americans are obsessed with women’s looks. Any female President will need to be slim preferably tall and photogenic. Not for the Americans an Angela Merkel. More a Condoleezza Rice, Sarah Palin, Michelle Obama Taylor swift. America changes parties every 2 terms so Clinton was never going to win plus she was too old for a woman not so men who can be 80 and still be President.

        Nancy Pelosi is hardly centrefold material.

          Is Nancy likely to be standing for President?

          Michelle Obama and Condoleeza Rice have both been asked but said no…so far. Sarah Palin was running mate in 2008. Taylor Swift wanted to but Trump forced her to say no said no so she wrote the song “Look what you made me do”.

            ‘Any female President will need to be slim preferably tall and photogenic. ‘…doesn’t sound like Hilary Clinton…who missed by a …nose.

        “America changes parties every 2 terms so Clinton was never going to win plus she was too old for a woman not so men who can be 80 and still be President.”

        Funny opinion, given before Trump won, almost everyone thought she was a sure thing. Your say she was too ugly and too old, but ignore the simple fact she was the worst candidate to run for President in the history of the republic.

      Her advantage is that she only need 1/1024 of the vote to claim the Presidency.

      Wow. Can’t wait to see more. It looks like it’s two objects frozen together by an ice join at the moment.

      PDT hates fabulous engineering. No doubt prefers Lefty mumbo jumbo and speaks it fluently.

          Yes, but I like them. It shows I’ve annoyed a Lefty idiot.
