So the deputy AG can still fire Mueller for "just cause". I got to figure leaking smile to the press would fall in that category. Mueller is just f'ing with everyone now in my opinion. Comey's revenge. I mean how many people are in the special counsel's office? Smoke them out. Or just as likely The Post is making it up as they go along based off of who they are interviewing (which is no indication of anything really), then CNN "corroborates" it.

And I guess we have moved on from collusion?

At least it's two different entities this time.  Better than what Fox News used to do. Plant a story in the morning as a passing comment, and then later in the day have one of their news people firm it up by saying "sources have said", when it was their own people who made it up in the first place...

But of course...the RWRE Trumpy's will always believe the Fake Fox News lies over ALL of the national intelligence agencies...NSA, CIA, FBI,....  It's "alternate facts" they believe, like Kellyanne explained before.

With the latest GOP victories in S.C. and Georgia, I think it is important that we all re-live November 8, 2016, this time through the eyes of the Young Turks.

Part of me still thinks people voted for Trump just to see stuff like this on television. You can't make up stuff like this. The network telecasts that evening were pretty much the same without the curse words.

 The Georgia 6th has been solidly Republican for ages and Trump carried it easily last year. Ossof's showing in this special election, while not beating his opponent, can be regarded as merely a fluke or as a harbinger of things to come. Read the tea leaves for yourself. My take is that as Trump sinks ever deeper in the polls and gets mired in almost continuous scandals, Ossof's campaign will be seen as a turning point.

Especially given that Handel's campaign outspent Ossof's by more than 4 to 1.  That tells me, in a deep red district, that the GOP knows it has problems moving ahead.  That and the fact that Handel distanced herself as far from Trump as she could.

She ran against his youth and the fact that he didn't even live in the district.

I suggest they get a better candidate next time that old people trust and you has been there a while.

To be candid. I didn't really track this thing. I was compelled to tease a few out of control Trump haters

I agree. I hadn't seen 6 to 1 before, but I thought I had read that upwards of 50 mill were spent on this and that the better half came from the Democrat. I could be wrong though. The NYT this morning had a piece about where the funds came from but it wasn't perfectly clear as to the total, but it didn't appear particularly lop sided either way, at least not 4 or 6 to 1 in either direction.

This was a district that the long time incumbent won over 60% of the ballots dating back to 2004. Romney won by double digits over Obama in 2012. But Trump only carried it by less than 2 points less than a year ago. I don't know what that really says about the district to be honest. I figure two new candidates would be much closer than a long time incumbent. That would have been something had Price had a close one (if you call 6 points close). I don't really look at this as a harbinger of national politics. Especially since I am told repeatedly by Democrats that local politics don't always equate well to the national level. Why else would we have a sizable majority of states controlled by Republicans.

I honestly chalk most of these notable losses (including Clinton) up to just poor candidates running. For many, there was no real reason to vote for Clinton except to stop Trump. Apparently obstructionist agendas only work for Republican candidates. I guess we will see in the 2018 midterms. I fully expect gains for Democrats. But if that does NOT happen, then there really will be hell to pay in the DNC.

This entire thread began as trolling. Nothing but a platform to whine, complain, and make fun of the president. Don't act so offended.
