8 years of Obama's scandals, and not one special counsel...not even for the Benghazi crimes, and now, just 4 months into Trumps administration and BINGO, special counsel. NOT GOOD.

For 8 years I saw the right blame the left for everything wrong (pointing out scandals that went unpunished) and praise Bush for everything right. Then for 8 years I saw the left blame the right for everything wrong (pointing out scandals that went unpunished) and praise Obama for everything right. I guess that part of the cycle never ends. Neither side ever seems willing to take responsibility.

That being said, I consider Mueller to be properly vetted with a record of opposing unconstitutional and/or foolish acts, disregarding the political leanings of the president.

Health insurers plan big Obamacare rate hikes — and they blame Trump - Los Angeles Times

Obamacare is failing and its Trumps fault. Hmmm. He's been in office not quite 4 months.

Big increases were being planned long before Trump had any impact. They've happened each year of Obamacare. This year was going to be no different.

Trump travels to Saudi Arabia and does not bow.

Really doesn't need to be any more to the story, but he also signed a bunch of MAGA deals with the Saudi's.

In something that did not get a lot of press, Secretary of Defense Mattis came up with one of the best ideas to come out of Washington in a long time.

Isis soldiers need to be annihilated not allowed to flee back to Europe and the US.

Thank you President Trump and Secretary of Defense Mattis, its good to see smart thinking again.

I thought President Trump's speech today in Saudi Arabia was appropriately firm and diplomatic. I thoroughly enjoyed the difference between this and Obama's apology tour when he first took office.

I did not see it, but everyone I heard about it from was very impressed. Except maybe from CNN. http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/22/politics/ ... -islamist/ He apparently was tired and mispoke or something.

Today Trump becomes the First President or maybe first human to fly directly from Saudi Arabia to Israel.

Donald Trump on Monday became the first sitting U.S. president to visit the Western Wall, Judaism's holiest place of prayer

I'm sure the Democrats, in Congress, and the MSM will complain that he is causing "erosion" by touching the wall, and claim that he is agaisnt preserving historical monuments. :banghead:

Cheers to you President Trump, you're showing everyone how our leaders should handle themselves when on overseas visits. :tiphat:

Well done Mr. President!

I figured he would be critised for wearing a Yamaka, and caving in to their religious beliefs when Melania didn't wear a burka.

Instead the WP focused on a sink hole in front of Mar a lago so they could show some negative Tweets. Sinkhole forms in front of Mar-a-Lago; metaphors pour in - The Washington Post - http://www.washingtonpost.com

Yesterday Trump visits the Pope. CNN loved the photo of Trump smiling and the Pope with a frown. Melania comes out as a Catholic. All in all not a bad trip so far for Trump. Sean Hannity did not fare as well. Media Matters is putting a full court press on his advertisers.

Trump visits NATO.

Leaks continue. This time it is the Manchester Bombing as photos and the name of the bomber are almost immediately leaked to the New York Times. Trump asks the Justice Department for an investigation.
