    I liked this one too...

    You realize the whole Drumpf thing isn’t insulting? His family changed the name to be more Americanized (Anglo-sounding), which was pretty common.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    That's rich coming from Joe after all the times he had Trump on his show during the 2016 primary.

    Weird responde. None of that is some secret, and Scarborough and Trump have gone at for quite awhile now. I'm unsure what makes it rich. It would be nice if more people who coddled the Prick-in-Chief called him out.

    Trump wants Romney impeached. Ted will get behind it, I'm sure.



    President Trump called for Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) to be impeached Saturday and argued that Republican voters in the state made a "mistake" nominating Romney for the Senate.

    In a pair of tweets, the president argued that the Utah Republican should be removed from office and that former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), another frequent Trump critic, was "better" than Romney.

    "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats! #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY," Trump tweeted.

    "No Kevin, Jeff Flake is better!" he added, responding to Fox News reporter Kevin Corke's tweet questioning whether Romney was "the new #JeffFlake."

    Trump once again displaying his keen grasp of the Constitution, which doesn't include an impeachment procedure for senators (they can be expelled by the Senate for misconduct). Having a president with the rhetorical gifts of an angry ten-year-old is getting extremely tiresome.

    He was one of Trumps biggest enablers. He had Trump on his show 41 times from when Trump announced he was running to when he accepted the nomination. He and Mika were some of Trumps biggest cheerleaders during the primaries. I put a lot of blame him and other media that gave Trump 2 billion dollars worth of free media because they thought it would be an easier win for Hillary. But I guess kudos to the guy who helped open the door of the china shop and ushered in the bull is now calling out the bull for breaking the china.

    He broke with Trump years ago. He was chummy, but cheerleader is a bit of an exaggeration. You're not wrong on the media and giving him so much coverage being a problem. But you're wrong about it being a political tactic. It was ratings. Trump is good at being a spectacle. After he won, he still received coverage of pep rallies and random press conferences that was not typical of how previous administrations were covered.

    I don't think it was an organized strategy to help Hillary. This mainstream media conspiracy stuff is ironic, given Fox News was set up to be a propaganda network, the brainchild of a Nixonite pissed that the media helped bring down their guy.

    Of course his true enablers are the people who continue to support him, and blame democrats, the media, and Mitt Romney for Trump's sins. The people who vote for him, retweet lies and propaganda, and surrender their common decency.

    Romney offers careful and sometimes muted criticism and Trump responds with a tantrum. The wrong person has control of the nuclear football.

    I wonder if Romney still thinks that Syria is still Iran's route to the sea?

    Romney gaffe: 'Syria is Iran's route to the sea'

    During Monday night's presidential debate, Mitt Romney repeated a gaffe he has already made at least five times before

    That was his job. Trump was a candidate. Frank's response pretty much covers it.

    Maybe, if we look hard enough, we could find something in the last seven years that Trump said correctly.

    Lmao, my thoughts exactly. Ted is clearly a stickler for consistency and absolute honesty given his position as an Alt-lite Trump cult member.

    Mitt responds to all the hate.

    Sen. Mitt Romney raises a troubling theory about Trump and Turkey

    “It’s been … suggested that Turkey may have called America’s bluff, telling the president they are coming no matter what we did,” said Romney, of Utah. “If that’s so, we should know it. For it would tell us a great deal about how we should deal with Turkey, now and in the future.”

    Romney then returned to the idea that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan might have given Trump an ultimatum that was met with acquiescence.

    “Are we so weak and inept diplomatically that Turkey forced the hand of the United States of America? Turkey!?” Romney said.
    Mitt is correct. No doubt Erdogan called Trump and said he'd be invading and attacking the Kurds. Who knows how the deal artist responded, but the result was that Erdogan got his way. Trump pulled the U.S. troops out hastily to get them out of the way, leaving the Kurds holding their butts.

    The world has Trump's number. He's all blowhard with a flaccid backbone.

    Mitt Happens!!! Trump retreats while blowharding.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Yeah.. there was no reason to capitulate to Turkey. They know they want no parts of the U.S. military. Maybe Trump Towers in Istanbul were the real bargaining chips...

    Yeah, why doesn't Mitt do something like get BYU into a P5 conference instead?

    Accord to Christopher Steele, the Kremlin worked to prevent Romney from being made SOS:



    One subject that Steele is believed to have discussed with Mueller’s investigators is a memo that he wrote in late November, 2016, after his contract with Fusion had ended. This memo, which did not surface publicly with the others, is shorter than the rest, and is based on one source, described as “a senior Russian official.” The official said that he was merely relaying talk circulating in the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but what he’d heard was astonishing: people were saying that the Kremlin had intervened to block Trump’s initial choice for Secretary of State, Mitt Romney. (During Romney’s run for the White House in 2012, he was notably hawkish on Russia, calling it the single greatest threat to the U.S.) The memo said that the Kremlin, through unspecified channels, had asked Trump to appoint someone who would be prepared to lift Ukraine-related sanctions, and who would coöperate on security issues of interest to Russia, such as the conflict in Syria. If what the source heard was true, then a foreign power was exercising pivotal influence over U.S foreign policy—and an incoming President.
