The Donald cuts a deal with Democrats, Schumer, Peolosi...

Perhaps DJT is thinking how effective LBJ's political style was - and is attempting to form a similar bipartisan coalition to get things done like tax reform, healthcare, the wall, infrastructure, etc...DJT would be crazy like a fox if he did...

Remember your history, LBJ got civil rights, voting rights, medicare, medicaid, overhaul immigration, food stamps, aid to education,  etc, all in 2 years!

Or maybe he is starting to see just how dysfunctional Congressional Republicans are and decided to cut the deals Congressional Republicans should be making. Considering just how...uninformed, egotistical, narcissistic and uneducated Trump appears, I seriously doubt he knows anything about LBJ and how LBJ did things.

As for the bill...why couldn't Congress just pass a clean humanitarian bill and send a clean $8 billion relief bill through.

finally happy to see that something is getting done. As I stated before, I will praise DJT when he does something great and will criticize when necessary. Now, when I looked at my FoxNews app, somehow they didn't cover it. I won't go as far as saying that Fox News didn't cover it on TV, but I didn't see it on the app. Now can someone please explain why not ???

BTW, Greenbeck, you are starting to impress me with your news source. I'm not saying that CNN is the best but IMO, sure beats those other internet news sources (TownHall, Breithbart, etc) that you have posted before. I'll take it as a ray of light for you! Kudos to you!

Sadly, one third of the country will believe whatever claims he makes no matter how believable those claims are. When politicians make claims, I usually go do some research, or have already read some news about the claim, before making my mind up on the veracity of the claim.

Have done this ever since Clinton's lies about his affair. Can't believe that in today's era of instant information availability that people don't do the same.

It wouldn't matter, they wouldn't believe it. There are no more facts anymore, that's what Trump's accomplished here. He didn't build the post-facts cake, but he did put the frosting on it.

And he knows frosting.  He has the best frosting.

I actually saw it on fox news and on your advice opened up the app and it was on the first page under "latest news"

I am happy to see that President Trump appears to be following through with his pledge of donating 1 million dollars to Hurricane Harvey relief.  It is also good to see that it is a personal donation rather than from his foundation.  Good for him on this.

This headline pretty much says it all:

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/alex-jones-claims-trump-is-being-covertly-drugged/article/2634024

This is what gets me about Alex Jones and InfoWars. He puts something out there - with no real proof. His followers will then either say its true and start with the 'deep state' argument OR they will say that he, like Fox News, is being satirical and he's joking (controlling the narrative). His followers will then think its gospel and run with it (see PizzaGate).

There's no way real way to oppose him or is '(fake) news reporting'. When you say he's a hack which has been proven (in his own words in his divorce proceedings)  - his base will say look at  (Soros, Obama, Hillary). When you say he's telling the truth - even though you may not truly believe him, his base seems will be emboldened.
Please bring back the truth docrtrine for reporting!

1) Mueller has hired one of the best money laundering prosecutors in the country for the Russia probe.

2) Ex-Trump staffers are coming forward complaining about how they're not being taken care of re legal fees, feeling 'hung out to dry' by admin.

This isn't a top 100 issue, but this article on Trump's inauguration fundraising and expenses is really something:

https://apnews.com/0756ba7480444895b4fabc9a2f0909b3

Some of the highlights:

- A concert featuring Toby Keith, Three Doors Down, and a YouTube piano act cost them $25 million to put on. For comparison, Obama's 2009 inaugural threw a concert involving Beyonce, U2, Bruce Springsteen, and others for twice as many people, which cost less than $5 million.  W's inaugural concert cost about $2.5 million.

- Leftover money from the record-setting $107 million in donations was supposed to be donated to charity. None has been donated so far.

- The chairman of the inaugural committee claims their finances were thoroughly audited by a third party, but would not provide a copy or identify who did it. Other associated people are claiming no such audit occurred.

Is there any other explanation for this outside of some mix of A. Gross incompetence, and B. Money laundering/patronage handouts via overbilling?  I'm really having a hard time thinking of any.
