Mueller's investigative team reportedly has emails (sent from an official campaign account) where then-campaign manager Paul Manafort offered a Kremlin-linked Russia oligarch "private briefings" on the campaign. Manafort, who was being sued for millions in debt by the same oligarch, also asked how he could use his position to "get whole".

Anybody else remember Trump bragging during the campaign that Manafort was working for free? Sure seems like we know why now.

I am still shocked that not only is he calling the leader of another country names publicly on Twitter but doing so in a major speech in front of the United Nations. I don't care how much conservative Americans loved what he said about America first, calling Un "Rocket Man" is again immature and beneath the office of the President of this great country.

Agreed.

It's something you expect out of a third world despot, not the leader of the free world.

I thought the political nicknames were stupid in the primaries. Now that they're incorporated into official US policy, it's embarrassing.

I've heard comparisons to Reagan, which make me cringe. Reagan had dignity, class and credibility.
personally I'm appalled that this clown resorted to schoolyard garbage like this during the campaign and a high volume of voters were perfectly fine with it.  seeing him as POTUS continuing to attack others in the country like this is even worse.  this type of conduct on the world's stage is just an egregious lack of recognition of the gravity of the office of POTUS by Trump. 

It still boggles my mind that there are still many in this country who see this behavior and continue to support it.

I did remember that Manafort was working for "free" when I read this news yesterday.  For months I've wondered who introduced Trump, a political outsider, to Manafort.  This latest news only rekindles that curiousity.

As a reminder, here's an article from when Trump brought on Manafort.  https://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2016/03/28/donald-trump-hires-paul-manafort-to-lead-delegate-effort/

I don't get it.  Isn't it kind of a tired "yeah but Hilary" type of position?

Okay I can see where dueling cartoons adds nothing and can only lead to bad things. Let's hold it there

Apologies, seemed like a lighter hearted way to voice disagreements, def see how it could go awry.
