This is another sign of paranoia and desperate. Trump's dreams are filled with spiders.

Well, that's one way to reduce the number of potential whistleblowers...

Yep. Fire everyone who looks you in the eye and give the rest 10x the workload and fire the ones who can't do it.

"Trump Orders Reduction of National Security Council Staff"

Jessup: Get me the President on the phone. We're surrendering our position in Cuba.

(TRUMPERS and NEVER TRUMPERS begin uproarious cheering, with the loudest cheers coming from the combat veterans.)

This should win Trump the animosity of those who are losing their jobs. The newly unemployed won't be afraid of talking out of school for fear of retribution/losing their jobs either.

Will he be as happy with the anti-Dale Carnegie Award as he would be with a Nobel Peace Prize nomination (for his resignation)?

The thing that puzzles me is why Trump wants to keep on being POTUS........if he really, really doesn't know what the

hell he's doing. He doesn't realize. that he's already fudged up the country enough........I thinks he's. just. going. by the

so called "bright ideas" his staff whispers in his ears......and then if these " ideas" don't work....he just fires them......

Put Rmoney (Romney) in there to finish Trump's term.

That's like asking why do Brady and Belichick want to keep winning Super Bowls.

The white house is the only thing keeping him out of jail. If he loses the white house, he loses the immunity from indictment which is the only reason he's not sitting beside michael cohen in prison.

Utterly, blatantly false. You don't do your side any favors by lying like this.

You don't know what you are talking about. Speadsoftly is out of your league and understands you are apparently incapable of understanding. In other words, you are an ideologue that is stupid. The sooner you realize than the less time you will be exposing yourself to ridicule.

Look up "un-indicted co-conspirator", which is what trump is in the stormy daniels case. In other words, he did the same thing cohen went to jail for. And the only reason he is unindicted is because a president can't be indicted. When he's not president, he can be.

You live a bubble of misinformation created by billionaires to keep you voting for their puppets.

This is a false statement. State AG's are perfectly able to indict the sitting President if there is sufficient evidence of wrongdoing to indict.
You are attempting to create a bubble of misinformation. Why not just try sticking to the truth for a change?

You are of course, correct. However, so far Trump's attorney's have told state courts that not only can he NOT be indicted, he can't even be investigated. Their claim is that he's above the law, BOTH state and federal. This is the definition of a dictator. Fortunately for America, he will not always be our 'dictator', since here, even dictators are term-limited. And when the day comes that Trump is no longer the president, and sooner the better for everyone, he will no longer be shielded by William Barr and the Justice Department. He will revert to private citizen Trump and will therefore be open to not only being investigated, but also indicted, and is all goes well, imprisoned for his crimes. And if we're lucky, several of his family members will be as well.

Cohen is in jail on FEDERAL charges. Trump can't be FEDERALLY indicted, and it's an untested legal scenario whether he can be indicted on state charges.

Try again.

Why 'Try again'? You back-tracked and fixed your error.
I just wish you'd do that before we have to point out your mistakes. You're potentially misleading the kind of people who would believe your words.

Great, lets cut out the people who actually know what they're talking about so that the only person driving this ship of state is a mentally deficient DOTUS who can't follow one of those bouncing ball singalongs.

Clinton creates a skeleton crew army that allowed 9/11 to happen and Liberals praise him to this day. Trump just wants to protect himself and Liberals go nuts. No guessing game is needed to know where their priorities lie...

Are you really this stupid or just playing at being this stupid?

Also, Trump isn't "just protecting himself" you sycophantic moron.
