    Trump's pick for National Security Advisor, who has ties to Russia, mishandled and gave out Army record and other classified material to advisors to other countries
    Its almost like Trump's means of picking someone for a position is if the person goes against what the position is for.

    So far they found one person to sing= Jackie Evancho .
    Donald Trump Books at Least One Singer for Inauguration

    I had to go look to see who Evancho is, a former “America’s Got Talent” contestant and only 16 yrs old. Maybe her youth will protect her from the bad choice that A-List top performers are avoiding.

    This sort of thing increases my hopes of Trump going down in scandal flames in a year.

    The media will pretend that it's perfectly normal.

    If they attack anyvody, it'll be Virginia. They need to liberate the Southern counties from the aggression of their North Virginia overlords

    Report Says Putin Was Directly Involved With Russian Interference in the U.S Election.

    Well this makes me happy. Remember the birther movement? Remember one of the guys involved in that? Remember how is was kinda racist? Well, if nothing else comes from this, I want Trump to suffer something like that near the start of his term.

    Heck, I am actually willing to give him a chance. I hope the guy defies expectations and does a good job. Doesn't mean I like the guy.

    About half of those would be better for us than the actual politicians.

    Scrooge McDuck would be a fucking badass president. That dude is actually a self made man, scraped and earned every single dime with his own effort, beat up robbers, tangled with outlaws, defeated sorcerers, solved mysteries and rewritten histories, spent time in hardship and poverty, added greatly to the archeological findings of the world, and has successfully run hundreds of buisnesses... and while spending decades travelling the world and getting to know people including interactions with many past presidents. He's even been to outerspace, so he appreciates the sciences and would certainly keep Nasa funded.

    He's been a bit of a pennypincher in recent years and he'd be against a minimum wage increase sure, but he'd absolutely get the budget in check to the penny. Everything would get funded exactly what it needs. The duck has astounding principles and values, and he is a big softie at heart. He's smarter than the smarties and tougher than the toughies, hell yeah I'd vote McDuck. Republican, Democrat, or Independant, he's where it's at.

    Sadly, not a U.S. born citizen, being born in Scotland would keep him from running. Alas.

    Best case scenario is that combined with other factors leads to us getting "faithless" electors in a couple days and anyone other than Trump gets in.

    I agree with the fact that they don't have to jump ship to Hillary but... at least go with a somewhat moderate Republican instead. If a bunch of Hillary voters were to switch to that as a compromise? It'd be SOMETHING. (And with a dem as VP? Never happen but bipartianship would be nice.)

    It's pretty much a pipedream, I just can't seen a whopping 37 people having the morals and decency to make the switch. But hey, every damn thing about Trump has been surprising. And one of them has already said they wouldn't vote for Trump. (They have not said they'd vote for Hillary.)

    Trump is just such a nightmare scenario. Any republican will do damage and set us back in a fully controlled house and senate, sure... but Trump is a full blown disaster.

    Second best scenario is Trump gets impeached and taken out of office *immediately* or removed via the 25th ammendment or any of the other available stopgaps. Sadly, in that case, no matter how short his stay, he'll still make it into Disneyworld's Hall of Presidents.

    I'd like to emphasize, "a bit." I'm more happy that Trump didn't quite get his way here. I'm also not holding it against Romney for going through the interview process for the job, although admittedly it sounds like Trump made this process difficult for him.
