      Get rid of him and lets go back to the old ways. High unemployment, cash sent to terrorist countries, billions in tariffs to other countries fighting someone else’s wars for them. REALLY MISS THE GOOD OLD DAYS

    The occupant of the white house lacks the mental capacity to complete the duties required by his government job. Congress has a moral and legal obligation to remove him from the white house.

    • Too bad republicans have no morals. This disgrace will continue while the US is crumbling and the world is laughing at the pathetic joke the country has become.

    I guess picking Louie Gomert would have been way more obvious

  5. Is there any chance that he is not a evangelical fascist bootlicker.

    Careers are more important then service to the nation. This might just be a slow moving coup?

  7. i thuoght he was already gone..i can’t keep up with these departures..🐑😜

  8. Ratcliffe didn’t even believe that a special prosecutor had the right to investigate OR report his findings on his emporer….I mean President? RATcliffe is being rewarded for being a sycophant and his brethren are lining up at the trough.

    This guy is on par with Barr, Trump, Graham, and that other traitor from Kentucky.

      All these traitors – where is the oversight? That’s right, they are on vacation

    • They are no worse than lynch, Holder, Rumsfeld, Clinton, Reno etc….

      @Drew Oliver I kind of liked the Clinton Lynch meeting – how does that happen? Two planes just happen to bump into each other at a tiny private airport – just sheer happenstance

  11. Anybody who slightly disagrees with Trump is fired. Trump wants a facist monarchy not a republic. It’s simple he doesn’t represent all citizens of the usa and thus is unfit for office he cannot do the job or won’t do the job. He should be removed. Impeach him now under the 25th there is ample proof he is unable to perform his duties.

  12. The selling of America.
    We’re eft, bigly

    so, another trump loyalist that is going to need to be locked up after office because he/she shouldnt be trusted to walk freely with these secrets.

    Another Putin pick. When are WE THE PEOPLE going to “Puerto Rico” this criminal & un-American regime?!

    Debating with a Trump supporter is like debating with a flat-earther, you can not use reason or logic.

  16. tRUmp will nominate anyone who screams WITCH HUNT… His last interview was the Mueller hearing.

    Another ‘Yes Man’ installed at another national institute. Another step closer to complete Trumpification.

    The neck of a Loyalist can also fit into a Guillotine . #HeadsInBaskets

    Whatever is best for Russia Comrade, anybody else notices Trump is starting to get a cabinet full of non-legislative approved people?

  20. Matthew Lewis | July 29, 2019 at 12:08 PM | Reply

    Another sycophant cultist who’s got absolutely no idea what the job entails. Maybe the reporters can find something on him. Probably won’t have to look very far..
