    Rex Tillerson is out. Mike Pompeo in as Secretary of State. This is like musical chairs.

    He's a business genius! He knows the best people.

    People who work at local fast food franchises hold jobs longer than they do at the Whitehouse.

    Meanwhile, Hillary just keeps proving why she was such a terrible candidate. Yes, I wait for my dear husband to tell me how I should vote. Right, honey? Because I'm not capable of drawing my own conclusions, having my own opinions. Goodness gracious no.

    Keep talking, Hillary. This is what you have in common with Trump. Neither one of you knows when to shut up.

    Tillerson is about to hold a news conference. This should be interested. Also reports that the aide who released the State Dept's statement saying that Tillerson didn't know why he was released and he hadn't talked to Trump, has been let go as well. In other White House news, Trump's personal aide, more commonly known as the bodyman, was escorted off the grounds of The White House due to an investigation into serious financial issues. CNN reports that he was immediately hired by Trump's presidential campaign office.

    And Tillerson was fired via the Twitter. Because, that's how adults fire other adults. They tweet it.

    Can't wait until we announce an invasion of Iran on Twitter. Are you tired of the winning yet?

    Just watched an interview of several voters in the Pennsylvania special election. Those who voted for Trump in 2016 and now are voting Democrat. Their main reason...how unpresidential Trump is acting and how much of a dumpster fire, for lack of a better word, his administration has been. Really, this admin is coat tailing off the Gorsuch nomination and tax cuts, whilst backstabbing his main base (see lack of Obamacare repeal and now assault on the 2nd amendment). Look at how many seats the Democrats lost after Obama failed to do really anything substantial policy wise after Obamacare. Trump should take note...

    I wonder how many empty bassinets would cover the Capitol Lawn for aborted babies just since January 1st?

    What I find incredible is the waste of taxpayer money and effort to hold a special election for a district that will not exist in less than a year. Neither winning candidate will live within the new revised borders of the 18th district. What the heck, Pennsylvania?

    Conor Lamb, a young, energized millennial riled up the Democratic base. Rick Saccone is hardly inspiring, a sleepy, monotone baby boomer. Donald Trump is dragging down the party with his 40% approval rating. I could go on, but it's obvious.

    I didn't really follow the race very closely but I did read where the Republican Party was very upset with Saccone's inability to connect to voters, which is important in the low information voter era we live in.

    lol Trump admits to lying about facts and figures in a meeting with Trudeau.

    But he's just not a politician and we have to get used to the way he does things.

    As dumb as that is, I still can't get over the fact that Trump things trade deficits mean we're losing money and are part of a zero sum makeup of our economy. Anyone with a brain knows that's not true.
