    After six Americans died from vaping, Emperor Trump proposed a ban on flavored e-cigarettes. "We can't allow people to get sick and we can't allow our youth to be so affected," he declared. "People are dying from vaping and we're going to be looking at it very closely."

    After many thousands of Americans were shot and killed, and many thousands of Americans continue to be shot and killed, by gunmen wielding pistols, revolvers, AR-15s, AK-47s and other weapons, Emperor Trump proposed.......nothing. *Crickets*

    Trump's proposed ban on vape flavors may not stop teens from vaping, experts warn

    The FBI was given a list of more than 50 people who witnessed Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct at Yale. The FBI contacted only nine of them. Yes sir, those "good ol' white boys" surely do stick together. And Emperor Trump, who calls every one of his own accusers a "liar," is, not surprisingly, declaring the latest accusations against Kavanugh to be "lies." Yes sir, those "good ol' white boys" surely do stick together.

    New reporting details how FBI limited investigation of Kavanaugh allegations

    Emperor Trump, same as all the dictators who have preceded him, wages constant war against the news media, which he continually calls "fake," "dishonest" and "the enemy of the people." He's now calling for the resignation of all the New York Times reporters who have written about the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh and all who have written about what Trump calls the "phony Russian witch hunt hoax." Trump is a paranoid, dangerous, power-mad lunatic.

    A growing number of rats are choosing to desert the sinking ship known as the Republican Minority in the House.

    California GOP congressman won't seek re-election
    The Associated Press, Sep 17 2019 8:03 PM

    A Republican congressman in California said today he won't run for re-election next year, making him the 18th GOP incumbent to bow out of the US House of Representatives now that the party is in the minority. Representative Paul Cook announced he will instead run for a seat on the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors in 2020. California has 53 US House seats, the most of any state. Its Republican congressional delegation was cut in half during the 2018 midterms, leaving the party with just seven of those seats.

    Emperor Trump surely knew Democrats would not take too kindly to his attempt to steal money from the military and Health & Human Services and put it toward his expensive, unnecessary, ineffective Trump Wall monument to himself.

    Remember, Donald Trump is the racist, bigoted, divisive, thin-skinned hate-monger who tells his blindly loyal supporters he will pay their legal expenses if they beat up anti-Trump protesters. He probably makes the same pledge to his security personnel.

    Judge orders Trump to testify in trial over 2015 protest outside Trump Tower
    CNN, Sep 21 2019 4:41 PM

    A New York judge has ordered President Donald Trump to provide video testimony as part of an upcoming lawsuit brought by protesters who say they were assaulted by Trump's security guards during a 2015 protest outside of Trump Tower. Judge Doris Gonzalez wrote in her ruling that Trump's testimony is "indispensable" to the trial and so he must provide video testimony before the trial is set to begin Thursday.

    The trial centers around a protest in September 2015 in front of Trump Tower in New York City where two protesters wore parody Ku Klux Klan outfits to protest Trump's rhetoric on illegal immigration. The lawsuit alleges that Trump's head of security, Keith Schiller, hit a protester, Efrain Galicia, with "a closed fist on the head with such force it caused him to stumble backwards." Galicia had tried to stop Schiller from taking their large cardboard signs, which read, "Trump: Make America Racist Again." The plaintiffs argue Trump had control over his security's actions because they are his employees, even if Trump himself did not order them to act.

    Joseph, the grandson of Robert Kennedy and the grand-nephew of John F. Kennedy and Ted Kennedy, has represented Massachusetts' 4th Congressional district since 2013. Like many millions of Americans, he sees Donald Trump as a threat to our Democracy.

    The United Auto Workers endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016 but an estimated 28% of the union's 415,000 members voted for Trump because they believed his promises to revive the coal industry and to keep American manufacturers from shipping jobs overseas. (Trump-branded shirts and ties were manufactured in China, Bangladesh, Honduras and Việt Nam, by the way.) On September 15, UAW workers went on strike against General Motors, which is closing four plants, resisting pleas for higher wages and better healthcare benefits and wanting workers to pay more for their health insurance. Trump and the Republicans are trying to avoid taking sides in this dispute. Trump siding with GM is politically risky. Trump siding with UAW is politically risky. Meanwhile, Democrats see opportunities to win the support of those workers who voted for Trump in 2016.

    UAW strike puts Trump, GOP in political bind in key states

    Emperor Trump is an isolationist who believes he, and he alone, can fix everything that's wrong – or that he thinks is wrong. He pulled the US out of the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate accord. He has insulted, criticized and alienated our allies while praising dictators Kim, Putin, bin Salman and Xi Jinping. As the Associated Press notes, Trump's "'America First' foreign policy has unsettled allies and shredded multinational pacts." At this week's annual United Nations General Assembly, Trump is finding very few friends and allies and he's not participating in the session on climate change because he believes global warming is a hoax. There is Trumpworld and there is the United Nations and never the twain shall meet. Remember last year when everyone laughed at him as he bragged about his supposed accomplishments?

    As incredible as this may seem, the galaxy-sized ego of the most vain, pompous, conceited, narcissistic, self-important buffoon who has ever lived has just grown even larger.

    Donald Trump says he deserves a Nobel Peace Price for 'many things' but says selection is not fair
