As usual, our “Bonnie & Clyde” writer is wrong. Imagine a sitting president with two weeks to go in his second term meets with his team and the vice president to plot to get rid of the new incoming president’s national security adviser. They had to because the new NSA was about to see all of Obama’s people plotting to over throw a duly elected president, that and the fact Obama hated Gen. Flynn because he challenged Obama’s characterization of Al-Qaeda and ISIS in 2014. They plotted to go to Trump to inform him that there was a dossier floating around about having women urinating on a bed Obama and the first lady slept in while on a visit to Russia. Once they informed Trump, Comey told Clapper “Mission Accomplished” and they leaked it to the press to get the process moving to discredit Trump and his administration.

All of Obama’s people ran to the press and told them they had evidence of Trump’s colluding with Russia to beat Hillary in the presidential election. When all of Obama’s people were called to testify in front of the many congressional committees everyone of them under oath said they never saw any evidence of Trump colluding with Russia down to and including Ben Roades, Susan Rice and Clapper. Everyone of them knew including Adam Schiff that there was no Russian collusion but yet they continued on the plan laid out by the FBI (insurance policy) and the National Security Council.

N/A, Your obsession with Obama continues. I think it comes from jealousy. Your orange idol lacks so many of the virtues possessed by Obama that out of envy you are compelled to attempt to bring Obama down to Trump's level. A British writer put it best:

“Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?” A few things spring to mind. Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honor and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed. So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing – not once, ever. I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility – for us, to lack humor is almost inhuman. But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.

Ring a bell, N/A?

Hey goofus, who cares what the British think? No obsession with Obama except he is a scumbag who nearly ran this great country into the ground with his socialist ideas and his corruption....

Frank

No obsession, N/A. LOL. Why is it that you cannot write a post without mentioning his name?

Frank

N/A, psychologists agree, a sense of humor is a sign of good mental health. Trump has no sense of humor. Ergo………

Mr N/A Martin, you think lying isn't corruption? Trump fired Flynn for lying to Pence even though Trump lies nearly every day. Flynn lied to the FBI and was prosecuted under the law and found guilty. Trump will be prosecuted for lying in 2021 and will be remembered as the most corrupt misleader in US history. Trump is a sociopath without morals or a conscience and cult Republicans look the other way to keep power. And Mr Martin, history has shown us that Obama is one of the best Presidents so far who led the country out of 8 years of Republican greed that collapsed the economy. Had Trump followed Obama's 2016 pandemic plan, the corona virus wouldn't be killing as many Americans and destroying Trump's chances for a 2nd term.

Obama. One of the best presidents. I've never heard a more ridiculous statement.

Alan,

Your rhetoric is not original. Virtually all of the content of your comment comes from one of the many scripts prepared by the Dems who can not yet accept the fact that Trump won the election. Your reference of Trump being a sociopath without morals and conscience is an example of such scripts - based on this statement I assume you are a psychologist and have met with end evaluated Trump. You also hang on to the hope that Trump will be prosecuted in 2021 - get over it because Obamam may be prosecuted first.

Regarding Obama's pandemic plan reducing deaths-definitely second guessing on your part.

Perhaps you should take some time and research what has been written about Obama's corruption to help balalnce your thoughts - or do you only want to read what supports your narrow mindeness and Trump hatred?

It amazes me that people like Mike R. and N/A can’t recognize truth. They embrace all kinds of conspiracy theories (fake news, deep state, etc.) as excuses for Trump’s ineptness. They ignore the warnings of patriots like General Mattis, Trump’s ex Secretary of Defense who just today said “Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us.”

They ignore the many books that have been written by Trump’s ex-staffers that testify to the president’s inability to process information before making a decision.

They ignore Trump’s admiration of authoritarian rulers, especially Vladimir Putin.

They ignore the evaluation of Trump’s ex secretary of state who called him a f…..g moron.

They ignore the firings of independent government agency watchdogs, whose jobs were to detect and eliminate corruption.

They ignore Trump’s tax cuts that mostly benefited the rich and increased our deficit by a trillion dollars, and that was before the virus.

Speaking of the virus, they ignore Trump’s reluctance to take the threat seriously, losing 6 weeks of preparation time that would have saved many lives.

How can they justify Trump ordering police to tear gas peaceful protesters so that he can have a photo op in front of a church with a book he has never read? Reminds me of a joke: Why did the chicken cross the road?.....To have a photo op in front of St. John’s Church.

Mostly, they ignore the lies. How can any sane person support a man who has told almost 20,000 lies during his term in office. There is no rug big enough to sweep that under, but they try.

I think people like Mike R., N/A, and other Trump sycophants are so psychologically invested in Trump that they are incapable of objectively evaluating his actions. It reminds me of how naive children will defend their abusive parents no matter how vile their actions.

Yes al Obama was the best. Be sure and put your tooth under your pillow so the tooth fairy can find it.

Alan H

Mr Martin, I hope you remember Trump's killer plan to fight the virus, drink bleach. How would you rate lunatic Trump for his other plan, the virus is a hoax from Democrats and will disappear like a miracle. If lying and corruption go together, Trump wins as the most corrupt misleader ever. How many lies is it now since he took office, 20,000?

Alan H

MikeR, I have to say that Frank pretty much beautifully summed up the best response. I'm so thankful that Republicans like Mattis and Merkowski are finally speaking up to condemn Trump's lunatic behavior. BTW, if anybody wanted to prosecute Obama for corruption, don't you think it would've been done years ago? Surely Trump's stooges could've found something by now, if Obama was so corrupt. Or could it be another crazy Trump conspiracy to rile up his nutty salivating supporters? MikeR, maybe you should join the tsunami of Republicans who plan to vote for Biden come November. Thanks Frank, I owe ya one.
