Trump congratulates Putin on election win, upset about leak

Vladimir Putin will be the top guy in the Russian government for at least the next six years. Putin recently won re-election with more than 75 percent of the vote, not by any stretch of the imagination.

Anyone who thought that Putin wouldn’t be re-elected is fooling themselves. Russia really doesn’t have, what is referred to as “free and open” elections.

Regardless, this is not the only release why Putin’s re-election has gained attention as of late.

Apparently, in a call with the Russian leader, President Trump actually congratulated the former KGB agent on his re-election. Why the orange one felt compelled to give Putin a pat on the back for his sham win, escapes me.

Others, including Sen. McCain, are also bewildered as to why Trump would do such a thing.

But things get worse for President Trump. Apparently, Trump received national security briefing papers specifically instructing him not to do give Putin a pat on the back.

Now Trump is said to be furious about the leak. Fine. Sure. He should be upset. But why in the world did someone have to tell the president it probably wasn’t the best of ideas to tell congratulate Putin? Why was that necessary? Should’ve been a matter of common sense, right?

Then one has to ask why did Trump feel compelled to ignore that advice? Makes no sense, none.

Hillary Clinton still can’t properly evaluate her loss

Unfortunately, failure is a part of life. Whether it be not making the team, not getting into your dream school or any other scenario where we fall short of the intended goal, failure is something everyone deals with more than we’d like.

Now when failure inevitably strikes, there are really only two ways to deal with adversity. The first, and the most commonly used coping tactic is to externalize, blame outside forces for why I didn’t get what I wanted. The second is to simply examine oneself, internalize the defeat and look for areas in which to improve for the next opportunity.

In the case of Hillary “pantsuit” Clinton, she encountered monumental failure. Losing a presidential election to a man with no campaign/governmental experience, has a penchant for making up words and who throws Twitter temper tantrums on the regular. It was a layup. A sure thing. Clinton was destined to be the first female President of the United States.

Except, it didn’t happen that way. She lost. Trump won. He’s in the Oval Office and she’s giving speeches at luncheons, much like the one she gave Tuesday afternoon. During her talk/speech, she gave a very simple explanation for why she failed to beat the Donald: It was someone else’s fault.

According to the former First Lady, FBI Director James Comey is responsible for her loss. Clinton claims that if not for Comey coming out and informing Congress on Oct. 28 that the FBI was investigating a new batch of previously undiscovered emails between Clinton and Huma Abedin.

She even goes so far as to say that if the election were held Oct. 27, she would be in the White House.

Yes, that’s right Hillary. If not for James Comey and that dreaded calendar, Madame President would be our reality instead of just your wild fantasy.

Yes, Mrs. Clinton, it was James Comey who put an illegal, unprotected server in your basement. It was also James Comey who instructed you to completely botch Benghazi, falsely informing the American public, saying that a Youtube video was responsible for the attack when that wasn’t the case at all.

As I recall, it was also James Comey who pushed you to label an entire group of people as a “basket of deplorables.” He was also the fellow who set up your campaign’s itinerary and is to blame for not scheduling events in Wisconsin and Michigan. And he also forced you to run a campaign completely devoid of fresh ideas. Instead, Comey decided you should spout stale Democratic talking points and your laughably bad “I’m with Her” slogan.

If I remember right, he was also the same guy who gave you the totally unearned reputation of being untrustworthy and underhanded.

Yes, shame on you, James.

Despite the fact that most of the media was pulling for you, Hollywood celebrities were out on the campaign stump singing your praises and that the Democratic Presidential Primary was essentially fixed in your favor, it was still James Comey’s fault.

No, it couldn’t be that you possess the charisma of a wet mop and exude the warmth of an industrial freezer.

As is often uttered, your attitude, your thinking is exactly why Trump won.

You had the layup of elections, Mrs. Clinton and you threw up a brick.

But don’t worry Mrs. Clinton, you can rest easy knowing that you were fouled on the attempt and James Comey was the referee who turned a blind eye during the shot.

James Comey is the reason for your failure, not you at all.

That darn James Comey.

Another day, another march

Ever since Donald Trump became president, the left has become obsessed with exercise. However, their choice workout is without question, walking. More specifically, marching. They continually ignore their upper body, and instead choose to exert physical stamina marching here, there and everywhere. Their arms, chest and most importantly, brain are completely ignored.

But seriously, the women have marched, the “scientists” have marched, those concerned about global warning and the geniuses worried about worker and immigrant rights have marched. These boots were made for marchin’ and they are gonna march all over you, until you completely agree with me and give me what I want!

Now, unlike conservative speakers on state-funded college campuses, liberals have every right to exercise their First Amendment rights. They can yell, stomp, shout and carry all the signs they want to their hearts’ content. That’s America. We may not like or agree with what they say, but stifling free speech anywhere is a danger to free speech everywhere.

But, they should probably better organize these things, and pace them out, they’re going to wear themselves out. Seriously, was it necessary to have both a march for science and a march for the climate? Also, Sunday there was a march for the climate and then the very next day, there was a march for “workers’ and immigrants’ rights.” Never mind, the march intended to secure workers’ rights was held on…. a Monday afternoon, when most people are at work. Is irony lost on these people?

Well, I for one just can’t wait for the next one. Oh, what will it be? The march to save the Pandas? The march for vegan, overweight, transexuals and their right to scratch themselves like a cat? The march to change the smurfs from blue to fuchsia? The possibilities are literally endless.

Pace yourselves liberals, it’s a marathon, not a sprint.

Poll: Trump’s first 100 days

100 days. That’s how long Donald Trump has now occupied the Oval Office.

While some people have moved on and accepted the outcome of November’s election, others are still having a tough time understanding that the pantsuit lost.

While some have reacted to the reality that Trump is president with total rational and proportionate bouts of screaming, yelling, stomping, marching, and destruction of property, others have taken a different route. Now, being the bastion of open-mindedness, tolerance and inclusivity that Hollywood professes to be, one would think they would’ve welcomed the new administration with open arms. Well, that’s not really been that case at all.

Regardless, Trump is president and the first 100 days are really the first big benchmark by which presidents are judged on the success of their administration.

Why a 100 days? Who knows, but it gives the media something to talk about and given the fact Trump himself set lofty expectations for his first 100 days, it seems only fair to look back and see whether he came through on his promises.

Now, legislatively speaking the Donald hasn’t been very successful at all. His health care repeal plan didn’t go quite as planned. It didn’t even come up for a vote for fear of failing to pass, saving the administration from an embarrassing failure.

However, he has signed a number of executive orders on issues, including border security, energy independence and offshore drilling.

However, presidents aren’t judged and remembered for their executive orders, it’s their legislative accomplishments that counts and on that front, Trump hasn’t been successful.

He’s talked a big game on taxes, health care and the wall, and none of those things have moved forward.

Really, his only big and crowning achievement has been successfully nominating and getting Neil Gorsuch confirmed to the United States Supreme Court.

So, knowing all of this, looking back at the president’s first 100 days, having both Houses of Congress, his administration hasn’t been quite the yuuuge success The Donald promised it would be.

At least not yet.

So, at least from my point of view, Trump gets a C. Average, but not awful. Decent, but nothing to get too excited about.
