The above graphic represents the short list.
Comments have previously been made by the “fashionista” about the length of Trumps ties which now pale in comparison to the length of his ties to Russia.
As to ties related to wardrobe I could care less if Trump’s dragged on the ground – don’t own one and have no desire to, but the Russian ties should be a matter of concern for everyone.
Well surprise surprise, USAG Jeff Sessions has recused himself from participating in an investigation into Russian campaign hacking.
This predictably followed by Trump’s announcement he has the utmost confidence in Sessions.
Sean Spicer, press secretary extraordinaire, has responded to his strings being pulled and rose to Sessions defense – next will be the “fake news” spin and a twitter rampage.
I wouldn’t exactly refer to this as voluntary decision, more of aas result following the disclosure that Sessions like so many of Trump’s hand picked cronies was communicating with the Russians during the presidential campaign and the “grand old party” has been catching enough heat as it is.
It could have gotten more than a little embarrassing had he not of in viewing of the fact that he was quick to call for a special counsel to investigate the meeting between former USAG Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton on the runway at the Phoenix airport, neither of which are Russian by the way.
I have to admit I love it when an individual like Sessions has a position they’ve taken for purely political reasons comes back and bites them squarely in the ass.
What this translates to is Sessions will not be able to obstruct an investigation or run interference for Trump – that duty now falls directly into the lap of a Republican controlled Congress.
Sessions like Trump had his chance pre and post appointment, nothing to give the man a “chance” about or reason to “wait and see” – time for Sessions to hit the road just as Flynn did, another appointee who had memory problems when questioned about his activities.
On the face of it if an appointed official has such a bad memory they can’t recall meetings with Russian officials they certainly couldn’t be expected or qualified to run a government agency could they?
Sessions like Trump etal are known commodities whose records speak for themselves, any virtues they may have would have surfaced long ago.
The media has assigned colors to the two major parties – blue for Democrats and Red for Republicans – suddenly the color red has taken on a new meaning for the current administration.
The role reversal position wise between the Dems and Reps is tangible – previously Russia was the avowed enemy of Conservatives, give no quarter and ask none, while Liberals seemed more measured in their approach.
Now the Reps have taken a different tact – Putin and Russia aren’t so much the enemy anymore as victims of “fake news” and false accusations as the Reps go all out Rodney King insisting that can’t we all just get along and move on ?
For them Putin and Russia represent business opportunities and new markets, perhaps even loans and deals to bail out Trump during 2008 / 2009, not to mention the potential threat of exposure that could purge King Trump and his Court from the White House.
Reason enough for Trump to refuse to release his tax returns – reason enough for his cohorts to block any potential legislation that would allow the IRS to do so independently.
Oh yeah – there’s nothing here, it’s all been settled and can’t we just move on and make America great?
On another note Trump is quoted as saying coal miners have no imagination, if they did they would leave the mines.
So if that’s his belief what exactly is he doing to facilitate that?
Is he taking an environmental approach to move away from fossil fuels and in doing so initiate training programs for miners that would allow them to move on and possibly work in the develop of renewable energy or infrastructure?
Not a chance, he’s committed to facilitating profit margins for the billionaires club.
