On this trip alone, which included a side visit to the Maldives with Sajwani and his family, the Secret Service racked up $230,000 in travel costs.  More
This Is the Moment of Truth for Republicans

The GOP can either defend the United States or serve the damaged and defective man who is now its president.

North Koreans release humiliating video of incompetent trump saluting North Korean general
Jen Hayden  Daily Kos Staff  June 14, 2018
donald trump said he didn’t need to prepare for the summit with murderous North Korean dictator Kim Jon Ung. He goes by his gut. He doesn’t need to learn the ins-and-outs of diplomacy, no need to learn customs or even military protocol. No need to take advice from the U.S. State Department or the National Security Council. His gut and his charm are all he needs.
Nevertheless, you’d think it would be a no-brainer not to salute a general from a foreign military, one that has been threatening nuclear war with the United States for decades More

President Donald Trump is trying to undermine and discredit special counsel Robert Mueller, because he knows that his report will reflect negatively on the president.

"Will We Stop trump Before It’s Too Late?" - Madeleine Albright uses the "F" word at the NY Times
xaxnar  Community  April 06, 2018
At one time or another, Trump has attacked the judiciary, ridiculed the media, defended torture, condoned police brutality, urged supporters to rough up hecklers and — jokingly or not — equated mere policy disagreements with treason. He tried to undermine faith in America’s electoral process through a bogus advisory commission on voter integrity. He routinely vilifies federal law enforcement institutions. He libels immigrants and the countries from which they come. His words are so often at odds with the truth that they can appear ignorant, yet are in fact calculated to exacerbate religious, social and racial divisions. Overseas, rather than stand up to bullies, Mr. Trump appears to like bullies, and they are delighted to have him represent the American brand. If one were to draft a script chronicling fascism’s resurrection, the abdication of America’s moral leadership would make a credible first scene. More
