    Emperor Trump's decision to assassinate an Iranian general without first obtaining the consent of Congress accomplished very little other than to make Iran and other Muslim nations hate America more than they already did. Trump gloats because he "took out a terrorist." In truth, he's created thousands more – and he's put every American at risk. او یک خرفت خطرناک است

    US troops were injured in Iran missile attack
    Despite the Pentagon initially saying there were no casualties from Iran's attack on an Iraqi airbase last week, an official now says 11 were hurt.

    A New York prosecutor said Collins showed "greed and disregard for the law." In other words, a typical Republican Congressman. And Collins was the first Congressman to support the Presidential bid of Donald Trump, who also shows greed and disregard for the law. Small world, isn't it?

    Trump inflated his assets in order to get loans from Deutsche Bank. Trump violated campaign finance laws by making hush-money payments to women with whom he'd had affairs. Trump refuses to release his tax returns. Trump has filed lawsuits to block subpoenas for his financial records. Trump is highly secretive about his financial dealings with other countries. What is he hiding? Criminal investigations into Trump's finances could last many years. "Lock him up! Lock him up!"

    The impeachment trial isn't the only legal problem Trump faces. Many questions loom about his finances.

    Emperor Trump's tariffs and trade wars have driven up prices, cost American consumers tens of billions of dollars, resulted in the loss of hundreds of farms and led to the loss of thousands of manufacturing jobs. The orange-skinned President who calls himself a "great deal-maker" is bragging about his "Phase 1" agreement with China as if it's a big victory for the United States. It isn't.

    Gary Cohn, ex-Trump adviser, says China tariffs 'totally hurt the US'

    Opinion: The US-China trade deal was not even a modest win
    It's generous to even call it a deal.

    With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his side, King Donald the First unveiled what he calls a "realistic two-state solution": Israel will annex all its West Bank settlements, Jerusalem will remain the capital and eventually there will be a Palestinian state with its capital in the Arab section of East Jerusalem. CNN says the plan "caters to nearly every Israeli and was immediately rejected by Palestinians. The Los Angeles Times says the plan "is likely to fail given the lack of Palestinian involvement." דונלד טראמפ הוא אידיוט

    Progressive Jewish groups denounce Trump's Middle East peace plan as 'utterly bankrupt' and a 'sham'

    Rodney Garcia is a typical Republican: He's been in trouble for illegal campaign contributions and a domestic dispute, he calls single mothers "deadbeats" and he accused protective services workers of kidnapping children. Now he says the Constitution gives Americans the authority to put socialists in prison or shoot them. Of course Garcia couldn't say where in the Constitution that provision is. Being a typical Republican, he's never read the Constitution.

    Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins got a $150,000 re-election campaign donation – which apparently was illegal. Hey, she's just emulating Donald Trump: Whatever it takes to win, do it! Congressional Republicans won't say a word.

    Susan Collins' campaign is being helped by a mysterious Hawaii company

    King Donald the First gave huge tax cuts to banks, big corporations and the wealthiest Americans (including himself). The middle class and the poor saw very little benefit from his "tax reform." Now, once again, King Donald the First is planning to inflict more pain on the poor and the middle class. And, oh yes, he's also asking for two billion dollars of taxpayer money so he can start building the expensive, unnecessary, ineffective Trump Wall monument to himself.

    King Donald the First, the great divider, has once again politicized attacks on police officers. And he was so busy spewing his idiotic accusations, he forgot to offer his meaningless "thoughts and prayers."

    In demented tweet, Trump blames Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio for shooting of NYPD officers

    In Trumpworld, the topsy-turvy land of delusions where bad is good, wrong is right, down is up and the Constitution is unconstitutional, the Department of Justice exists largely to do the bidding of King Donald the First and Attorney General William Barr acts as though he's King Donald's personal attorney. Yesterday, federal prosecutors recommended a seven-to-nine-year prison sentence for former Trump campaign chairman Roger Stone, who was convicted on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements. Today, immediately after King Donald complained about the "horrible miscarriage of justice" and implied that Democrats, not Stone, should be in prison, the Justice Department overruled the prosecutors and decided Stone deserves a much lighter sentence. All four federal prosecutors who handled the case against Stone have now resigned. In Trumpworld, justice is whatever King Donald the First says it is.
