    What is most galling is that news items like this are actually going to reelect him in 2020. The jerk is playing us like a fiddle.

    I don't like Trump, but this TV station is so lacking in any substance all they can do is constantly attack his character, his silly comments. Why do they never talk about what kind of a job he's doing?

    Trump has, since before 2016, had a very cozy relationship with Russia. Especially with Putin, not to mention North Korea, so I won't mention out here.
    Trump has invited Russia to investigate Trump's political rivals in 2016.
    Then there was Helsinki where the President of the United States, praises and promotes Putin.
    G7 where Trump supports Russia be re-admitted to what would become G8.
    Then, separates U.S. troop from Kurdish allies in Syria. Days later Russian military helicopters follow Turkish military into Syria.
    These are reported events that, nevermind bribery, are more indicative of TREASON.

    Pre-adolescent. I would say it hinged him to the trauma (speculative) that got him sent to military school.

    Yeah this is all fine and good, but guess what? The guy is still President. So how did this happen? Very nice professor but you're not the President of the United States of America are you professor? Hello are you? I didn't think 😁so... It's easy to throw shade, when everyone you're speaking too just like the person you're talking about. And the person cannot rebut anything you're saying.

    obviously he's very educated but he has some obvious issues with Trump period. And his sinister devilish laugh says a lot about him.

    Trump talks like a real person, he doesn't use big words to try to confuse people. Adolescent is msnbc getting some tryhard professional to make fun of someone who is giving it as strait and clear as possible. Who would prefer, someone speaking clear as possible or someone using confusing and technical terms to hide what they are doing or saying?
