At some point, I’m going to sit down, perhaps as a fireside chat on live television, and I will air the tape and allow the American people to decide for themselves whether I was being 'peed on'.

has this bimbo ever told the truth?

Having called around some, reassured in my judgment that those House Republicans open to voting for impeachment simply decided to stick with the party yesterday, and to save their dissent for the real vote. No point telegraphing the jail break to the prison guards ahead of time.

His moron logic makes no sense. Republicans on deep background share their disagreements with the president, but publicly vote to support him. Again on deep background they claim they really do disagree with him, but claim next time they might not vote to support him. Sure. Fool me once ...

I am sure the transcript will not have been altered with a Sharpie

Just as the dog who totally did not pee on the President was not a shar-pei

All I can say is that if the President goes on the radio, urine for a surprise

I had a dream last night that Trump died of massive organ failure in American Samoa. The big news item was the fight over the body — the Samoans insisted he had to be buried there immediately.

Imagine my disappointment when I woke up to find he’s still alive.

I'm sure his organ often fails but I'm equally sure that it's far from massive.

They brought us into session this morning, saw all the Dems were there, so they called a recess,

then another,

then another,

and every time we came back all the Dems were there.

So they cancelled the vote.

Re: Bill Kristol's nonsense. If House Republicans can't muster the courage and integrity to vote in favor of examining the evidence to determine whether the president committed an egregious abuse of power, then there's no reason on earth to think any of them will suddenly acquire courage and integrity when the evidence proves he did commit a high crime.

A Donald Trump fireside chat would be De Niro's talk show from CASINO, to the 10th power. This needs to happen. And it can't be a one-off. We need Fox News to give him 90 minutes a night if he wants it - sitting in that bizarre defecatory posture in the Oval Office, sniffing like someone stuffed steel wool into his nostrils, squinting at the camera because he's too vain to wear his glasses...
