Yeah I think we all predicted this.

Now Professor Cohen is a neo-con who was all in for the Iraq War, so that fact that the Trump team did now welcome him with open arms should not worry us too much.

However we are also hearing that Trump is essentially rejecting advice from EVERYBODY who was not with him since the beginning, and that does not exactly leave a lot of people left who know what it takes to do that job.

We knew this was going to be bad, and we were right.

    IF this were a goofy unreality tv show with bad F actors? I would say boring, click. But! Since we have an extraordinary situation we must declare and demand answers, action and outcome.
    So the hacking was China, along with Russia.
    ALL products made in china were used. Iphones, androids, satalite stuff, Samsung products, Ancestry, banking programs, and on on on so many. They hacked americans and used the info to rig the election, to create division and chaos.
    I don't know about the rest of you? But this is as close to modern war as it gets. THEY RIGGED OUR ELECTION. I want this chit pile in roll off dumpsters and shipped back to china. Then I want to see factories up and working to build our products. I BLAME ELECTED. ALL ELECTED FOR THIS HAPPENING.

      The voters elected Donald Trump. Some are even blaming President Obama for Trump's election, which is pure bullshit!

      The voters put Trump in charge and the ones that did are going to rue the day - as well as the rest of us.

      We now have a racist and evil man in charge! Prepare for major disruption throughout the country and protect your money and assets.

      Plus, help others such as our American minority friends. They are the ones I'm most concerned will have harm come to them. And, don't forget our Muslim friends - there is great fear amongst them and none of them should have to be afraid for their lives or being 'rounded up' and deported!

Except for the fact that all of this is going to have a dreadful effect on us (as in "us, 'the people'"), it would be quite comical. Apparently Trump is not satisfied with having "won" the Electoral College, he's also fuming that he did not win the popular vote. Shades of his friend Vladimir who gets to win by 90+ percent.

    The Trump Campaign Keeps a List of His Enemies
    'It's so great our enemies are making themselves clear so that when we get in to the White House, we know where we stand,' Trump surrogate Omarosa Manigault said.

    What does President-elect Donald Trump have in common with Santa Claus?

    He's keeping a list – and probably checking it twice.

    Trump campaign surrogate and head of African-American outreach Omarosa Manigault told the Independent Journal Review on Tuesday that the campaign has been keeping a list of his enemies.

    "It’s so great our enemies are making themselves clear so that when we get in to the White House, we know where we stand," Manigault said. "I would never judge anybody for exercising their right to and the freedom to choose who they want. But let me just tell you, Mr. Trump has a long memory and we’re keeping a list.”

    Manigault said in a September "Frontline" special that "every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump. It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”...

It's weird, but as long as I can see that she's keeping her sense of humor and wit in all this, I can bear to keep up with it all. Chris Matthews, on the other hand...ugh! I am even less able to listen to him now, with his constant interrupting of guests before they can make their points, especially if those points are at odds with his. He starts talking over them as soon as he senses a good point coming! I really can't stand him, especially now when my nerves are shot...

      I think it time for Chris Matthews to retire. His ratings must be horrible on MSNBC. Will say though - I'm sure he had his place years ago - as he's been involved in actually being on the Hill many years ago. I think he means well - although driving some of us nuts when he talks over his guests!

      One thing many of us agree on is that Donald Trump being our new leader is bringing many of us a LOT of fear and anguish.

      Love Rachel. Her technique of being repetitive can get on my nerves at times, but she always leads up to something significant and she really digs into her stories, so there's a reason for doing things as she does. Last night's story about Jared Kushner's scuzzy father, with his dirty dealings and even hiring a hooker to sleep with his sister's husband so that he could film it and use it as leverage, is a perfect example. I was bummed when the "lean forward" crowd started getting the ax (I especially miss Ed Schultz during election time) when MSNBC realized it had become too liberal for people to handle (btw, it was great seeing Toure back as a guest the other day), but I was very glad to see the other people kept on. Chris Hayes is great. Lawrence is therapy--without him I'd not be sane anymore.

    2. Anonymous8:00 AM

      If you're claiming the voters for Trump is just a small part of the population, then the same holds true for Clinton. As a % of the US population, Trump has 60.83 million/319 million = 19.0% of the population and Clinton has 61.78 million/319 million or 19.36% of the population. So you can't make the point the majority of the population wasn't for Trump. They weren't for Clinton either.

    3. If you're going to make that point. Then the majority of the population didn't vote at all.

      Now, who is that majority of the population? Does it include children under the voting age? Does it include legal immigrants that are not citizens and cannot vote? Does it include the undocumented? Exactly what comprises that 319 million people?

      There's lies, there's damned lies and then there's statistics.

    Trump Grows Bitter Over Popular Vote Loss As Clinton Lead Surpasses 1 Million

    But there is one nagging fact that seems to be increasingly getting under Donald Trump’s thin skin: More Americans voted for Hillary Clinton by a pretty substantial margin.

    ...According to the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, Hillary Clinton’s popular vote total now stands at 61,964,263 compared to 60,961,967 for Donald Trump, pushing the former Secretary of State’s raw vote lead past the 1 million mark.

    Trump, clearly not happy about the reality that most Americans – by quite a substantial margin – cast their ballot for his opponent, took to Twitter (of course) on Tuesday to vent his frustration.

    1. Anonymous7:54 AM

      I'm not for changing. Changing to the popular vote means president elections will be decided by the people living in the largest urban areas: NYC, LA, SF, Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Phoenix, San Antonio and Philadelphia. If anyone in DC was taking it seriously, the legislation would be being put forward by someone from a smaller state, not a retiring senator from California.

Yeah, he is pissed that the people don't luuuuuv him and he didn't win the popular vote. He would rather have had the popular vote and lost the electoral college. That is really what he was campaigning for. He failed in that too. That's all he is is a failure. He'll fail as President too because he doesn't know what the fuck he's doing.

    Trump Transition Team Descends Into Chaos As Nobody Wants To Join Administration

    Trump is so desperate to have people join his team that he's seeking the Obama administration's help in filling roles.

    ...The transition dysfunction extends beyond failure to promptly execute a memorandum of understanding. According to several sources close to the Trump transition team and inside the Obama administration, the president elect and his staff have had difficulty finding able-minded Republicans willing to take on critical posts. One Democratic source, who like others would only discuss sensitive talks on condition of anonymity, said transition officials had been informally asking Obama political appointees to recommend Republicans to take over their jobs.

  19. Anonymous8:27 AM

    The Sanders promotion shows that Democrats appreciated his presidential campaign and his message. The Senator from Vermont will have a platform within Senate Democratic leadership to continue his political revolution from. There is no bitterness among Senate Democrats left over from the presidential primary.

    The elevation of Sanders represents part of an effort by Democrats to take their message to the grassroots level. Sen. Sanders understands the concerns of workers and families. Bernie Sanders was promoted to leadership so that he can make the case against Trump in the media and to voters nationwide.

    1. They also elevated Elizabeth Warren.

      It means one of two things.

      They either realize the mistakes made and are already pivoting to fix them.

      Or they are throwing the progressives a bone hoping to shut them up so they can continue business as usual.

      Sanders is top Democrat on the Budget Committee and is also in a new position as head of outreach. Warren is Vice Chair.

      "The lineup of moderates and liberals suggests Schumer is not inclined to go all in on progressive policies championed in Sanders’ presidential run, but is more likely to pick and choose issues to appeal to base Democratic voters and the Americans who abandoned the party for Donald Trump. He also said he is willing to work with the president-elect in select areas. "

      Willing to work with Trump. WILLING TO WORK WITH TRUMP!!!

      This is the ASSHOLE leadership we *don't* need. No, you don't work with Trump on select areas. You DON'T WORK WITH HIM AT ALL!

      This is why Democrats lose. We don't learn from history. We don't learn from our opponents. The Republicans fucked over Obama for 8 years and already the Democrats are rolling over to lick Trumps balls.

    Why Mike Rogers’s departure from the Trump team is alarming

    The ouster of former congressman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) from Donald Trump’s transition team is a worrisome sign of continuing internecine battles in the GOP and the ascendancy of Trump’s personal political allies in shaping the president-elect’s agenda.

    Rogers, a widely respected former FBI agent who headed the House Intelligence Committee, had been seen as a figure of stability and continuity in intelligence matters. He was mentioned as a possible next director of the CIA or director of national intelligence. But Rogers was told last weekend by Rick Dearborn, executive director of the transition team, that he was being removed from his role in the national-security group advising Trump. He was replaced by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), who took over as the committee’s chairman after Rogers left Congress in 2014 and has been a far more partisan chairman.

    Rogers had angered House GOP hard-liners when his committee issued a bipartisan report in 2014 clearing Hillary Clinton of personal wrongdoing in the 2012 Benghazi incident. That report was characteristic of the way Rogers chaired the committee, in a working partnership with then-ranking Democrat, Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (Md.). (Rogers added “additional views” that criticized “senior State Department officials” for dismissing threat warnings, denying requests for extra security in eastern Libya and other errors.)

    But this consensual approach clearly didn’t suit Trump’s inner circle.

  24. Trump may not know how to run a government but he sure knows how to throw a party.

    Transition Team a disaster but he's got his inaugural committee up and running.

    "He may not yet have nominated a single cabinet member, or sent emissaries to the federal agencies, or held a news conference as president-elect, but Mr. Trump does have a presidential inaugural committee lined up.

    And it includes some serious money.

    The Trump transition named its inaugural committee leadership team on Tuesday evening, headed by Thomas Barrack Jr., a private equity titan. Other members include the financier Lewis M. Eisenberg; the casino magnate Sheldon Adelson (one of the largest political donors on earth); Gail Icahn, the wife of the investor Carl Icahn; Woody Johnson, owner of the N.F.L.’s New York Jets; the hedge fund manager Anthony Scaramucci; the Texas businessmen Ray Washburne and Roy Bailey; and the luxury casino tycoon Steve Wynne."

    I think I'm going to have to switch my regular browsing to Chrome. At least there he's Drumpf and his picture is a cute pile of shit emoji.

  25. Guess who is chairman of Trump's Inaugural committee? Thomas J. Barrack.

    He served as Deputy Undersecretary of the United States Department of Interior under the Reagan Administration, and is an economic and national security adviser to the President-elect.

    Why is Trump going all the way back to the Reagan administration to hire people?

    Will no one in the Bush administration work for him or does he consider them all disasters?

    Seems Trump is hiring really OLD has beens like him. Newt Gingrich. Rudy Giuliani. John Bolton. Now this guy.

    If they have this much trouble hiring people for cabinet positions and under, what are they going to do about replacing them as, one by one, they die in office of old age?
