    Well, at least there was one Republican who knew what Trump is.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/bar...-new-book-says

    *The Trumps are a new word, both of them,* she wrote in her diary. *Trump now means Greed, selfishness and ugly. So sad.*

    Later, the former first lady spoke about Trump*s candidacy and surprise about his supporters.

    *I don*t understand why people are for him,* she said.

    Bush wrote in her diary that she *could not vote for Trump or Clinton* and ended up writing Jeb*s name on the ballot.

    Before Trump won, Bush had a note prepared to send to Bill Clinton that said, *Welcome to the First Ladies Club* as a joke. However, she *woke up and discovered to my horror that Trump had won.*

    Graham can't decide if he wants to give Trump a blowjob or put up the faintest of pretenses of impartiality

    Let's be real, if it was a "normal republican" who was president but still had all of Trump's policies she wouldn't give a shit.

    More reasons not to trust Barr - the grand jury working on Russian collusion is still active.

    He doesn't even get into his specific thesis about Russian aggression, there. I find the Trump thing much, much scarier in the context of a Russia that deliberately creates an isolationist US/neutered NATO in order to expand for solid economic and geopolitical reasons.
