    He was never elected. He was selected by the Electoral College. The popular vote got passes over like pissy rainwater!

    PUTIN ALREADY HAS TRUMP IN A SOVIET SLEEPER HOLD
    We should be deeply troubled by the attempted murders in Salisbury, and we should ask the president, our would-be tsar, what he plans to do when the real tsar launches a similar attack here

    YOU’LL JUST MAKE HIM ANGRY
    House Intel Committee Screwed Itself—and the President It’s Trying to Save
    In shutting down the Russia probe in such an obviously hackish way, the House Intel Republicans only managed to ensure that if and when Adam Schiff takes over—look out

    ... But despite all this, the committee ending its probe is actually bad news for Trump long-term. The manner in which it was done, and the report issued by Chairman Devin Nunes, look to all but the fiercest Trump backers to be hackish and focused on giving Trump cover, as opposed to providing actual clarity and answers. Set aside whether you agree with Nunes or not; the probe looks at best incomplete, the report like the political equivalent of a half-researched term paper—a half-researched term paper that has really, really enraged already very-enraged Democrats.

    Mueller’s Calculated Strike Against the Trump Org Shows His Strategy Is Working

    ... Trump’s hands appear to have been tied, in part, by Mueller’s canny timing. News of the subpoena coincided with an announcement that the White House had taken new steps to censure Moscow, leveling sanctions against five Russian entities—including a troll farm that sought to sow online discord during the election—and 19 individuals close to the Kremlin.

    In sanctioning Russia, the White House has ostensibly insulated the special counsel just as he decimates Trump’s “red line.”
