Trump's Disapproval Rating Smashes Record
In eight days, the Liar In Chief went from a disapproval rating of about 45% to an astonishing 51%, according to Gallup. Source: Gallup Daily: Trump Job Approval

Most Presidents have at least a short "honeymoon" period; it took Bill Clinton 573 days to get a majority disapproval, Reagan took 727, Obama took 936.

Trump took 8.

For the record, Obama, using the same pollster and methods (Gallup) left office with an approval rating of 59%.

And we're saddled with this fuckery for 4 years. Even if he's impeached, won't we have to deal with his shitty VP? Pence is just as terrible as Trump, just less outwardly stupid.

Pence is far more frightening. He knows how to push through an even more sinister agenda legally and quietly. Trump is literally asking to be impeached by governing by fiat. I wouldn't be surprised if the Republicans had paid him off to take a fall all along just to make their twisted agenda more palatable by comparison.

The only decent chance is changing the house and senate 2 years from now.

Impeachment proceedings will take at least that long. And it keeps them too busy to do any irreversible damage.

There is that, no argument with it.

But Pence is unlikely to trigger a nuclear exchange because someone, somewhere, got under his skin. Trump is weak, thin-skinned and spineless, which, IMO, makes him more apt to lash out at some perceived offence. And with the nuclear football within arm's reach, that lashing out could have globally disastrous consequences.

More lies from the Liar In Chief.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer, in defending the appointment of alt-right hero Steve Bannon to the NSC, said that Obama's press secretary Ronald Gibbs and senior advisor David Axelrod attended NSC meetings "all the time."

That is an out-and-out lie, or what Trump loyalists would call an #alternativefact.

No wonder DJT's popularity has tanked and continues to sink like a stone.

We need a recall mechanism at that level.

Welp, at least the actors are starting to line up, we've found who's playing Eichmann.

No doubt, Pence scares me as much or more than Trump. Pence is the man behind the curtain. Pence, and the rest of the cabinet. Trump is just the figurehead.
