  1. Would like to read the article, but I’m not subscribing to WP for it (required for reading it). Not giving that liberal rag a shred of credibility, which the subscription rate would certainly be an indicator thereof.

  2. Hm… I wonder when Trump will get around to pulling a Lincoln and dealing with the FAKE NEWS outlets once and for all?

    • The moment he becomes the same kind of tyrant as Lincoln or FDR (which it seems many of us now want when the regime is on ‘our’ side but were lamenting not two months ago)

      Lets avoid turning this place into Russia, since there’s no place else to flee to.

      • Once in a while, every republic needs a Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus. We got one in 1861… I think it’s about dan time.

      • You neo-Confederates kill me. Secession over slavery when you lose an election good bur starting a civil war after losing an election to someone you like bad. Where you stand is where you sit I guess.

    • Trump will do it at the time and place of his choosing.

      (If one digs about a bit at ‘The Weekly Standard’ website, they will find a rumor Trump may just get *another* SCOTUS pick when a wishy-washy conservative justice retires in a few months.)…

        • The Left is going to go even more bananas (if even possible) when Trump deals with things in creative ways.

          Trump has a knack for doing whatever it takes to get things done.

          Look, Obama had a *bunch* of legal things he tried and were slapped down by the courts.

          I expect Trump to throw a lot of stuff on the wall, and be happy if even some of it sticks. Seek forgiveness, never permission, so to speak…

  3. The irony here is that Rep. McGovern is just fine with your loved one going to a doctor “to hurt himself” instead of him doing it himself with a gun.

  4. McGovern, and Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren are both shamefull traitors to their constituents in the state of Massachusetts! If anyone in Massachusetts has have a half a brain! They’d start a petition for recall ! These Fruitcakes shouldn’t have a say in government, or keys to the kingdom!!!! Let alone running it !!!
