With the explosive testimony of his former attorney and self-proclaimed fixer Michael Cohen to Congress and the dissolution of a deal wit North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, President Donald Trump has had a rather disastrous week.
At his testimony, Cohen called the President”a racist, a conman, and a cheat.” He provided corroborating documents, like checks, to bolster his claims that the President violated campaign finance laws. In addition, his testimony will likely lead to more people in Trump’s orbit being called before the House Oversight Committee, like Trump Organization CFO Alan Weisselberg and even Trump’s own children.
The day after the Cohen talks, Trump announced that no deal had been reached with Kim Jong-un at the summit in Hanoi, Vietnam. He insisted that walking away was better than taking a bad deal, despite cozying up to the dictator and even publicly doubting Kim’s likely involvement in the torture of now-deceased college student Otto Rambier.
Now, the President is killing two birds with one stone and accused Democrats for deliberately hearing the defamatory testimony of a “convicted liar & fraudster,” while Trump was negotiating with Kim, asserting that it may have lead to “the walk.”
For the Democrats to interview in open hearings a convicted liar & fraudster, at the same time as the very important Nuclear Summit with North Korea, is perhaps a new low in American politics and may have contributed to the “walk.” Never done when a president is overseas. Shame!

People aren’t buying it.
holy crap, is this going to be the rest of your presidency? whining like a dirty diaper baby about imaginary grievances until the men with the butterfly nets come to take you to the medication farm? asking for 6 billion friends

To be fair questioning the lawyer who paid off the president’s pornstar mistress has never been done when he was IN the country either.

Americans seemed to know why the talks fell apart.
