Backstabbers

Reuters
I rarely agree with Nikki Haley but have to admit feeling sorry for her this week. Did she get the rug pulled out from under her on sanctions or what?

If I were her I would resign in a heartbeat, especially with the crap coming from Mnuchin and Kudlow's traps, about her making a unilateral proclamation.

Like hell she did. I guess the Bolton era is in full swing, better watch out for knives in the back.

Talk about getting destabilized. Because Trump knows he can't be too mean to the Russians because they have something on him he doesn't want spilled. Not sure what but something.

Former Undersecretary of State or Deputy, I forget which, Wendy Sherman was on Lawrence ODonnell last night. I don't always agree with Sherman either but she sounded very cogent last night and said this kind of undermining behavior from the administration causes both a lack of credibility globally and probably much laughter over at the Kremlin.

You know the Russians have something on Trump but you're not sure what? Really?

That's what it looks like to me, yes. He is mortally afraid to piss them off. Can't imagine what they might have, way above my paygrade but he gets really peed when anyone brings it up.

Trump might have been responding to a Washington Post story that said he lost a battle with his advisors who wanted a harder line with Russia. Apparently this provoked his famous "anti staff" response and he reversed himself to show whose in charge. Kinda weird having press coverage of Trump being more important than national security concerns. I guess Sarah Huckabee will save us by describing how up is down and blue is yellow. I am so grateful for her.

Pee pee may be the key to this mystery! Better to pissed off than pissed on! ( at lest, that is the way most people feel!)

Don't have to be a whiz kid to figure this one out...
