    Definitely. In his mind he's a 10, those useful to him in some way are 1's, and everyone else is a 0.

    Gaetz is damaged goods.

    And probably radioactive, considering his father volunteered to wear a wire.

    McConnell knows that unless he grovels at his feet Trump will order the rest of the GOP to get rid of him. Expect McConnell to start endlessly lying about how the election was stolen and Trump is the real president.

    Depends on how long Mitch plans to remain in the Senate, and how he wants to shape his legacy, having stuffed the Supreme Court and Federal appointments with Conservative Justices.

    That's finished for the next four to eight years, so if he kowtows to Forty Five, it means he plans on at least twelve more years.

    In a big survey (that has some issues, see methodology), Trump's popularity in March was more or less the same as it has been throughout his presidency. A few democrats shifted from "I dislike him" to "I dislike him VERY MUCH" since Dec 2016 and that is it basically.

    The easy answer is Trump is the avatar of systemic problems in US culture/systems, so what he does is meaningless. Most people prefer byzantine rationalizations to confirm their internal narratives as they feed off external ones sadly.

    Facebook’s Supreme Court upheld Trump’s ban and he said what you would expect. Then he tried to backdoor his way back on Tweeter using his new Desk of Donald Trump site as a cover and it did not work.

    Elizabeth Warren coming out with “the Facebook action proves Big Tech is too powerful” was a nice addition.

    It would help facebook if Zuckerberg was removed, since we know his ultimate quest is to have every human have an account on facebook, regardless how much he has to compromise with authoritarian regimes, and then monetize the information.

    It certainly helped Microsoft as it transitioned from the old guard to a more technocractic leadership.

    Reps Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene tear into their OWN party in rally at Florida's The Villages as they raise the stakes in Republican civil war with 'America First Tour'

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ica-rally.html

    Everything about this story is what Trump and his nativist supporters are, a pedophile and a Q anon / Jewish Space Lasers conspiracy theorist. The Villages documentary Some Kind of Heaven is worth a look.

    The Justice Department under former President Trump obtained phone records of Washington Post reporters and attempted to get access to their email records surrounding their reporting on Russia’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election, according to a new report.
    Trump was clearly worried about what they would find and trying to get ahead of it.
