    Glen Casada claimed his racist and sexually explicit texts were just "locker room talk." Yeah, the same excuse Donald Trump used for bragging about grabbing women by the pussy. Neither Casada nor Trump is a high-school student. That excuse doesn't work.

    REO – "real estate owned" – refers to houses, condos and/or land that have been foreclosed upon and are now owned by a bank or other lender. Our Housing secretary did not know that. He's obviously one of those "very best people" that the President said he surrounds himself with.

    HUD Secretary Ben Carson was asked about REOs in a Congressional hearing. He thought the question was about Oreo cookies.

    The biggest disaster devastating our nation is the gradual destruction of our democracy by Trump and the Republicans.

    One of Emperor Trump's goals is to undo everything President Obama did – everything from the DACA program to the Affordable Care Act. Here we go again. Trump doesn't care about anyone other than himself and wealthy white Republican men.

    In Carl Sandburg's 1936 poem The People, Yes, a little girl watching a military parade says, "Sometime they'll give a war and nobody will come." The sentiment became a popular anti-war slogan in the latter half of the 1960s. Well.....what if they give a Ku Klux Klan rally and only nine people come? It happened today.

    Nine people showed up for a KKK rally in Dayton, Ohio. They were drowned out by 600 protestors.

    Emperor Trump says the Chinese pay for his punitive tariffs. They do not. Americans do. Now we can start paying for his Mexican tariffs, too. A 5% tariff will take effect June 10 and increase by 5% every month, up to 25%, unless, as Emperor Trump says, Mexico does something about illegal immigration. His childish trade wars and punitive tariffs are hurting every American.

    Emperor Trump's tariffs are hurting farmers, American consumers and American manufacturers. Emperor Trump doesn't care. And it's getting worse.

    Pompous, childish, bullying, egotistical, narcissistic Emperor Trump called Khan a "stone cold loser" who is doing a "terrible job" as Mayor and – boo-hoo – was "foolishly nasty" in his criticism of Trump. I wonder what nasty names Trump will say to Queen Elizabeth II after she fails to curtsy to him.

    Emperor Trump likes Fox News because their hosts seldom say anything negative about him. Trump denounces all the other news outlets, as well as several major newspapers, as "liars," "fake news" and "the enemy of the American people." He just can't accept that the news outlets, with the exception of Fox, don't worship him as much as he worships himself. The whiny, petulant, pompous, egotistical, narcissistic, thin-skinned blowhard is now calling for a boycott of CNN's parent company to force CNN to make "big changes." Emperor Trump has absolutely no regard for the Constitution and First Amendment rights. Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao, Idi Amin and Saddam Hussein would be proud of him.

    Trump calls for a boycott of AT&T to force 'big changes' at subsidiary CNN: 'It is so unfair with such sad Fake News!'
