Famous (almost) last words as recounted by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC:

"I am not a crook." - Richard Nixon

"I never had sex with that woman." - Bill Clinton

"I never worked for Russia." - Donald Trump

When even Fox News is willing to discuss President Trump as someone who "committed a felony" (as Judge Napolitano did recently) and pushing back on some of Trump's wall rhetoric, I think it's safe to say that the people who still support this man has shrunk to a very, very small group. Yet he maintains an overall approval rating around 40%. I find that rather shocking.

It's treason in plain sight.

Here's the NYT article on the FBI investigation into Manchurian Candidate Trump:

Even after everything, "[The FBI] grew increasingly concerned about whether the president's actions constituted anti-American activity" is still a pretty mind-blowing sentence to read.

Democrats shift toward impact on jobs as climate change moves to front of 2020 agenda:

". . . The proposal . . . calls for a special committee in the House to draft a plan by 2020 for a historic multitrillion-dollar federal spending and loan program with the goal of building a '100 percent greenhouse gas neutral power generation system' and providing millions of jobs in low-income areas."

I fucking love Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Just... everything.

MSNBC just called him "The Manchurian President" which might be a better title for this thread.
