What if people are already gay married? Are they made to double gay marry?

Of course. Forced gay polygamy is next on the list, don't you know?

Don Jr:s wife hired a criminal lawyer as her divorce lawyer...

Current theories are:

-Mueller investigation is going to notice that Junior was involved in criminal deals and they are trying to hide some of that money through divorce and the marriage has no troubles but this is just a money laundering operation.

-Wife is lawyering up and distancing herself so that she won't go down with the ship when Jr and the rest of the clan start getting arrested. And/or she is doing this to protect her kids from the fallout.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/18/politics/rand-paul-mike-pompeo-gina-haspel-cnntv/index.html

Rand Paul went on CNN and decided to be more useful than the Senate Democrats.

He said he'd filibuster Mike "Edward Snowden should be killed" Pompeo and Gina "Burn the torture tapes" Haspel when they come to a vote for their nominations as Secretary of State and CIA Director respectively.

Chuck Schumer, meanwhile, is of the opinion that they should be heard out before he says anything about whether Senate Democrats will try to block them.

I wonder which committees Sen. Paul sits on, because if he and all the Democrats on a committee hearing them vote against advancing them, that effectively kills their nominations because I believe moving them to the floor without being advanced from committee can be filibustered, so unless McConnell's willing to tinker with the Senate rules some more, that's probably a nonstarter.

EDIT: Of course, if he is on the relevant committees, but does what Lisa Murkowski did with Betsy DeVos and votes to move them out of committee and only vote against them on the floor, then Pence can break the tie. (Although even getting a tie would require flying McCain in, because otherwise the vote would fail 49-50 if all the Democrats and Independents vote against.)

EDIT #2: Oh, and further to my point about McCain, getting him to the floor might actually work against Pompeo and Haspel, since he's vehemently against torture, having been tortured himself.

Does Trump not realize how guilty he's making himself look? News is coming out that he wants to try to fire Mueller. Innocent people don't get defensive. If he truly had nothing to hide he wouldn't care that someone was investigating him. I don't know if he had some sort of collusion with Russia but there is some shady shit going on. Money Laundering scandals or some unknown business deals.

There's a reason Trump never released his tax returns, keeps defending Russia and Putin, has had campaign aids that have known connections to Russia like Flynn, Manafort, Sessions, Carter Page, Roger Stone, Had DTJ meet with a Russian person to get dirt on Hillary and admit it in an email, the hotel in Azerbaijan that seemed to be constructed with dirty money, how a powerful Russian Banker met with Jared Kushner, revealed top secret declassified information with Sergei Kislev in a closed door meeting while bragging that the investigation against him was over, firing Comey, did a business deal to open a hotel in Toronto funded but a powerful Russian entrepreneur Alex Schnaider, requested Russia to hack the DNC to find the missing emails which then culminated in the Guccifer 2.0 hacker who might have Russian roots hacking the DNC, The fact that Mike Pence denies knowing anything, how Trump had sold a 100 million dollar house to a Russian fertilizer king during the housing crash, and how the fertilizer king showed up at a Trump Rally during his campaign at Concord North Carolina, how Devin Nunes has access to the white house and has business deals with Russian Miner corporations, says Russian investigations are all fake news, why Jason Chaffetz denied started an investigation into possible Russian Collusion and then happens to quit and go back to private life during the investigation, how Mary McCord the lead DOJ during the investigation decides to resign from her position and why Pam Bundy who was part of the Trump university scandal was appointed by Trump to head the investigation, the blaming of Flynn on Barack Obama, why Poland and British intelligence officers gave information regarding the hacking to Paul Ryan back in 2015 and did nothing with it, how Trump knew about Flynn's involvement with the Russians and hired him anyway and his constant attempts to poorly derail the investigation all together.
Something is going on.

http://wgme.com/news/local/new-republican-candidate-speaks-out-about-controversial-tweet

Correction to that GOP own goal story from Maine: Leslie Gibson, who called one of the Parkland survivors a "skinhead lesbian" and then withdrew from his Maine state legislative race, had a Republican challenger, Thomas Martin, Jr. Martin will face Democratic candidate Erin Gilchrist, who filed after Gibson's comment, in the general election.

EDIT: https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/26/politics/steve-mnuchin-chris-wallace-line-item-veto-congress/index.html

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin suggested that Congress could pass a rule to give the President a line-item veto. Y'know, that thing they did back in the Clinton years that the Supreme Court found to be entirely unconstitutional.

EDIT #2: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinton_v._City_of_New_York

The case in which a line-item veto was ruled unconstitutional.

EDIT #3: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-03-28/trump-loses-first-skirmish-in-suit-over-d-c-hotel-profits

A Maryland judge has allowed a lawsuit against Donald Trump alleging violations of the Emoluments Clause to proceed.

EDIT #4:



Messaging tip for the GOP: When Democrats have been accusing you for decades of hating poor people, don't put the phrase "Republicans hate poor people" in anything the public might have the remotest chance of seeing (ie anything, these days).

"So I want to thank the White house historical association and all the people that work so hard with Melania and with everbody to, keep this incredible house, or building, or whatever you want to call it because there really is no name for it, it is special. And we keep it in tip top shape. We call it sometimes Tippy Top Shape. And it's a great great place."

Donald Trump talking like a lobotomy patient.

I don't know if he's going senile or regressing to the mental state of a four-year-old.

I also love some of Melania's expressions.

She's prolly playing the long con, hoping he dies before she does and she can get some of that sweet, sweet Donald Drumpf dosh.  Can't say that I blame her, or that the shitheel doesn't fucking deserve it, because he does.
