There were 30% fewer Patriots than there were in 2015.  POTUS should have more important things to worry about.   This is why he has accomplished nothing so far.  He wastes his time wit non issues.

Size is an issue he is very sensitive about.

Where was all this BEFORE the election?

Is it possible that these continual, unverified leaks are simply the result of war between Trump and the Intelligence Community?

Scientists Brace for a Lost Generation in American Research
Private funding isn't enough to offset the president's proposed budget cuts, they say.

Is it possible you're too focused on the election and not on the corruptility of supposedly the most powerful person in the world?

I don't think you understand. I'm focused on why this alleged act was kept from the American people.

Trump's whining about the ridiculous first 100 days standard.  Maybe because he's done nothing of note in his first 100 days except generate revenue for Trump Organization.

^^There were allegations floating around prior to the election of Trump's loans from Russia, and that article doesn't sound any different than that, an allegation without backing proof. These allegations took on a whole different light as the meetings between Trumps people and the Russian nationals have trickled out.

That being said, the FBI generally doesn't say anything until they have their ducks in a row and can nail you to the cross. HRC email/weiners laptop investigation not included, of course.

I am guessing there are several layers of shell corporations insulating Trump from the Russians in these loans making it hard to conclusively prove they happened. Even though the FBI knows that money left Russia and the same amount ended up in the Trump organizations coffers.

Shells you say?....

Last summer, a shell company with a bogus address started buying Trump condos. U.S. gov't has been asking questions.

^ I've heard an expression which loosely defines success as accomplishment/expectation.  Therefore in order to be successful one must either increase the numerator or decrease the denominator.  Guess which one Trump is doing  here?

Pennsylvania Lt. Governor Mike Stack Bashes The Cops Protecting Him, Governor Tom Wolf Shuts Him

A rare moment when a political leader finds his moral compass. The Secretary of the Treasury should take note and follow suit. Trump and his litter should no longer receive a subsidized security detail.

Donald Trump has 'dangerous mental illness', say psychiatry experts at Yale conference
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/donald-trump-dangerous-mental-illness-yale-psychiatrist-conference-us-president-unfit-james-gartner-a7694316.html

It seems extremely unethical for a mental health professional to diagnose someone without ever having even met them, let alone spoken to them nor seen them in a professional capacity. In a society where mental health issues are stigmatized, this doctor seems to have gone out of his way to make a mockery of his own profession and perpetuate that stigma.

It's sad what some people stoop to when they get mad about politics.

My hot take on whether trump is kookoo is that he has taken upon him his 'apprentice' persona full time. So he stays in his character on tv as president.
  If you look at old videos of him in interviews he was a lot more gregarious and lighthearted. He would shoot from the hip but he knew he could get headlines.
 Nowadays he seems so uptight that people are going to catch his act that he can't focus on anything other than himself.
   So i think this is what the psychologists are seeing. Trump will tell bigger and bigger lies going forward. Essentially he is on his way to being a megalomaniac. 
   So he might not be certifiable right now. He still is considered unfit since he is happy to lie about the most trivial and irrelevant things on an ongoing basis repeatedly like the size of his electoral win or inaug crowds. The purpose of the lies are to feed his massive ego. Even if he is just playing this character, that still is not acceptable as presidential standards, norms, and practices.

Speaking of unethical, it's extremely unethical for a sitting POTUS to talk out of his a$$ about a carrier group.   Trumps loose lips have put the crew of the Carl Vinson in jeopardy (when it finally arrives off the Korean coast), and have caused backlash from our allies in Asia:

He's just winging it.  I can't believe his irresponsible statements last week about how Korea was actually part of China.  I bet our allies in Seoul loved that one.

And this stuff about made up facts to boost his ego is backwards.  His ego does not need boosting.  His ego makes facts.  He has lived his life according to his childhood preacher Norman Vincent Peale who preached "if you believe it, it will happen."  When you are born with a lot of money you can just state things and people will nod their heads and make it happen.  And now there is a part of the media that fuels the alternative facts.

Donald Trump's approval at this stage compared w/last 12 predecessors - going back 3/4 of a century. No one was lower than Trump, with the closest being Ford after Watergate.

The way this idiot babbles and carries on, how can anyone defend him?

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/donald-trump-9-11-approval-ratings-interview-who-with-first-100-days-us-president-world-trade-center-a7698516.html

Republicans, I get it, I used to be one. I watched the 2008 election go to hell after Sarah Palin came in and then watched that party become nothing but a knuckle dragging mess. The GOP needed a candidate to lift it up and someone to rally around, but why take the risk on this moron and who becomes the actual GOP "savior" when Trump is finally too unpopular to handle?

For the record, I still feel that John McCain is a reasonably good person. Even if I don't agree with his stances on some issues, he served and fought for his country and then continued service as a representative of his electorate. He's stood for things and suffered at the hands of the enemy. Donald Trump has done literally nothing except lie, kill off the USFL, and rile up the uneducated with promises of a wall and coal jobs returning. What's the GOP plan for when those things never happen and those voters catch on?

The GOP plan doesn't matter though, that's assuming they even have a real plan. The more pertinent question is what are the Democrats going to do to unseat this guy?
