        Love you Dudette, and all these glorious gorgeous tweets. Our FLOTUS is ForeverFlotus and every time she speaks I remember all the good things I so easily forget, and draw strength and joy and courage. What a precious gift to the world she is.

    We have our marching orders! The Obamas showed us what to do to fight for our democracy and each other. On a personal note, I have to take some time off to fight an early breast cancer (DCIS). Not sure yet what treatment I will have but very relieved to have great health insurance to cover it,. Everyone should have that peace of mind!

        Since Drillerson is dismantling the State Department and he relies so heavily on being nice to Russia I doubt we will find out if Russia is really behind because That Administration won’t confront Putin anyway. As long as the GOP are over the house and senate there will be NO hearings to investigate this.

    So now we’ll see how fast Mulvaney can cause damage before this judge’s ruling is overturned by the DC circuit court of appeals. At the district court level, judges are assigned by random drawing. Very bad luck to get a new Trump appointed judge. Given the little I know, however, it seems likely it will be overturned on appeal. Congress was clear, and the specific generally overrides the general. Here you’ve got a specific process to fill vacancies written into the law itself while Trump used a much more general statute to put his preferred acting director in place.

        Sadly, Meta, elections have consequences. This is why I will never forgive the self anointed, “holier than thou,” so called progressive Democrats who voted for Jill Stein, Trump, Johnson, or who stayed at home and didn’t vote at all.

        • November 28, 2017 at 7:18 pm

          My dear Nath, I wish we could rest assured that all those people learned their lesson but, alas, they have not.

            I agree with you, Meta. I wish the DNC was spending more time solidifying the real base of the Democratic Party, as well as recruiting new young voters who are not yet tainted by either the right or the delusional left, instead of wasting time trying to appease Bernie Sanders.

        My hope is that she sets a new record for how quickly a new judge is reversed on appeal! But we are going to be stuck with this idiots on the benches around the country for life. It is sad.

          You are absolutely correct, FoxfireTX! We are now reaping the consequences of the 2016 election. Trump and the Republicans in the U.S. Senate are packing the federal courts with extreme right wing judges, many of them very unqualified, who will serve for life.

      Where is the Dem ADVERTISING? The MSM isn’t going to enlighten people about the deception and the thievery in this bill.

      And while they’re at it, they need to remind people to ask themselves why we are at the brink of another GOP vote that spells DISASTER for the middle class.

      I woke up to this news after calls and texts from family. The woman who brought the allegations had serious receipts, they investigated and learned that there are others. Fired his ass practically on the air. Not surprised or upset. I wonder if Anne Curry knew something and whether or not this was one of the reasons for her very obvious discomfort with him during their ill-fated pairing on the Today Show.

      The jackass is too ignorant of the world and the implications of the things he says and does. He is a danger to all of us. The sooner most of us figure that out, the better chance we have to save ourselves. We can start by the MSM not normalizing his actions. He’s unqualified and sick.

        It’s TOO LATE already desertflower. People who can defeat this radicalized Russian puppet only want to make him stronger and are ready to destroy themselves in the meantime. This disaster Russian tax bill will destroy America and many Americans will wake up and only blame “gays” or “transgender” or anyone other themselves. Look at Alabama. They are ready to elect a pedophile to the Senate when as far as we know we might already have one in the WH. We know he has sexually abused women all this life but that did not matter to the women who voted for him.

      Amazing. I wish he were our POTUS right now. He really spoke from his heart about the true meaning of America. To think what Trump followed that graciousness with is truly, truly appalling and angers me thoroughly.

      We really do truly need a museum for these heroes. Future generations must learn this lesson.

    I think someone had Bill O’Reilly – $32 million dollar proof against Lauer, because of the swiftness that he was shown the door.

    Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore said Friday that he is refusing to debate his Democratic opponent Doug Jones because of Jones’s stance on transgender rights.

    In an interview with Sean Hannity on iHeartRadio, Moore said that Jones’s “very liberal” stance on transgender issues was behind the decision to skip a debate.

    “We’ve refused to debate them because of their very liberal stance on transgenderism and transgenderism in the military and in bathrooms. They are desperate,” Moore told Hannity.
