Trump continued

So, gas attack in Syria.  Use lots of words, condemn your predecessor, say "lines have been crossed" but you won't do anything about it.

Buck stops with you now.

Also Bannon out of the NSC is good.

It really won't be good until the angry orange troll is impeached.

Getting Bannon out of the NSC is a little like 'Well, now it's not -as- evil.'

Nunes is out as head of House Intelligence Committee. Seems like Trump cronies are getting out of positions of power, perhaps before some more damning evidence comes out? It'll be interesting to see.

He's still going to the meetings.

He's just no longer on the principals committee.

He is such an asshat.

Sorry but I think I mentioned that about 30 times in the last thread and I thought this thread was missing a dash of the obvious.

Bannon out is in theory good news.  But Trump is King Dickus of Window Dressing.  Meaning that the Bannon is still in the White House.  He still has the ear of the president.  And, as Syn notes, still attending the meetings.  All of the this to say that I doubt anything has really changed.

Well, he decided to shoot about sixty cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase. That's almost as expensive as ten of his weekend golf trips. What a bargain.

Well, they are the good guys, the ones they bombed are the bad guys.  How could it be more complex than that?

Accurate satire

I was thinking the same thing this week.  He was so outraged by the chemical attack on the babies, but he can't be bothered to let the babies come to our country as refugees.  Asshat.   ::)

I guess we really need to be careful that we don't bother poor Ivanka, or she will order an
air strike on your ass. 

How the fuck is this shoe salesman getting access to classified military planning?? The fact that
you have clearance DOES NOT mean you have a need to know, that's basic security 101.

Don't get me started on the son in law.

don't worry, they might forget where you live before they launch the strike:

Quote
“So what happens is, I said, we just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq—”
-trump, in an interview on foxnews today.

or they'll call ahead to warn you it's going to happen (russia would never tell syria what's about to happen, would they?),

or they'll simply fail to disable what they're shooting at.

otoh, their press secretary might say you're worse than hitler, and that'll really sting.

He might be the dumbest current world leader.  I'm not sure who could rival his idiocy.

So how many Americans will lose their insurance, or can't afford it anymore soon?  Hopefully enough in the swing states for the 2018 bit, then the 2020 president election

short answer, lots. CBO score is pending but the score on the previous iteration was something on the order of 10s of millions of people. probably a substantial underestimate based on what's been added on.

senate leadership announced that there're more or less starting from scratch, anyway. they also announced they're looking for 51 votes, so presumably they're looking to pass something through reconciliation. trump called on them to trash the filibuster if necessary, but mcconnell claims that's not going to happen. who knows if he backtracks on that.
