If we can get our hands free to type from the constant facepalming, we should be able to post on this topic.

Even though I don't blame her for keeping a low profile, I'd give just about anything to know what Ivana has to say. She's always struck me as forthright and I'll bet she's torn Donnie Jr a new one.

Or perhaps not. She may very well be enjoying Scrotus' discomfiture and (hopefully) his downfall and feel that Donnie Jr has made his bed.

Ivana, if you're on MN, PM me baby!!

I rather think she'll be hunkered down trying not to notice the reporters in the bushes, Across. Wink

cozietoesie · 12/07/2017 16:22

But I think you're nonetheless right about her position interesting one. Wink

I've been trying to keep an eye on her for some time.

So far, this must be our cheeriest thread.

Hope it lasts and the Trumps do not ...

This doesn't inspire confidence. Christopher wray asked during his confirmation hearing what someone should do if they're contacted by foreign national offering information about opposition tries to duck it:

I feel so weary, I can't get excited about the latest revelations yet... there have been so many things already that should have been the tipping point to end Trump politically, in any sane time, and any President with even rudimentary morals would have resigned long ago.

But maybe this really is the beginning of the end Smile

cozietoesie · 12/07/2017 17:52

I doubt he'll resign. Just keep on persisting.

Place marking with slightly more optimism than before

Kamala Harris @KamalaHarris

GOP timeline:
Health bill text Thurs
Vote next week.

That's barely enough time to read it, let alone discuss with experts & constituents.

Breitbart's initial reaction

"“New York Times has neither seen nor read ‘Russia email’ to Donald Trump Jr,” was Breitbart’s main take on Tuesday morning. “This is only the latest effort by the Times to bring down President Donald Trump that relies on documents it has not seen and verified.”

The story seemed to be working well as a distraction for Breitbart readers – guiding more than 4,000 commenters into a familiar, comfortable debate about bias in the liberal media.

But at 11am, with the Times preparing to publish his emails, Trump Jr decided to bite the bullet and post them himself. The Times ran its story at almost exactly the same time, and journalists at news organizations – including conservative outlets such as Fox News and the Washington Examiner – scrambled to follow up"

I've missed Colbert

A whole Russian week next week, it seems. But I'm afraid that it could feel terribly out of date.
