"Justice Department Demands Details on Visitors to Anti-Trump Website"
-Just do what has always been done with a Democrat on the Presidential watch; don't tell people what you're looking for

"Trump Campaign Video Names Journalists as 'Enemies'"
-"They're not our friends."

"Adviser: Trump Didn't Want to 'Dignify' Neo-Nazis By Naming Them"
-"Well, by ignoring them maybe we actually embolden them, so 'Nazis are dumb, and they're stupid, and they're stupid, and they're dumb' is probably the obvious can't-lose response"

Will add more eyeroll "shouldn't have happened in the first place" headlines as I come across them. They say hindsight is always 20/20, I think Trump just needs to hire a jerk to have eyeballs on his butt-hole 24/7. Or stand in the back of any room he's speaking in so when Trump immediately opens his mouth after a question is asked, he's obligated to hold up a finger and stare angrily to remind Trump to take 2-3 seconds to consider how he chooses to respond before he vomits out his brain diarrhea.

Happy "You can't possibly be this fudging stupid" birthday.

Point 1: He's trying to get a list of people who are against him. He's trying to pinpoint people who might have been at protests to keep an eye on them. That's seriously overreaching their authority, there are laws that protect ISPs from such things. Not to mention hey, people have right of assembly.

Are the people who visited the site criminals? Did the site users or owners promote crime in any way? Would you be okay if law enforcement got a list of everyone who donated money to Trump's campaign, even in small amounts? You wouldn't.

Point 2: Denouncing the media as his enemy is literal textbook fascism.

Point 3: He didn't want to name them because he knows they support him. Same as the KKK. He only said what he said because he felt pressured to do that, and look what happened yesterday.

For fudge's sake, man.

Asked about key diplomatic posts, the president says, "I'm the only one that matters, because when it comes to it, that's what the policy is going to be. You've seen that."

Honestly I'd just rewind this, hop back in the time machine and think about how we form words and thoughts into coherent sentences. And also who enforces the policies he makes. I'm not sure how to fix that, it wasn't really thought out well at all I think.

Trump increases foreign worker visas at Mar-a-Lago Despite "Hire American" Promise During Campaign

http://www.newsweek.com/trump-gets-visas-70-foreig...

Iunno how to fix this headline other than actually hiring American instead of importing cheap labor like he swore we were going to do once he was elected. According to just one labor sourcing firm in the region, "We currently have 5,136 qualified candidates in Palm Beach County for various hospitality positions listed in the Employ Florida state jobs database" so the people are there. It's almost like it's all about money in the end. Or something. Or maybe he's just a liar? Hard to tell. About the only thing I can say is that he's certainly not above failing the "Practice what I preach" test. Click neg with your nose if you've got your hands covering your eyes right now in defense of our CIC.
