Most Americans Agree – Trump Is Really, Really Bad At Being President
According to a new analysis in The Hill, the majority of people in the United States think that Donald Trump is a horrible president. Whether it is his nonstop Twitter tirades or his lack of diplomacy when meeting with foreign leaders, Trump has proven that he was not even close to being ready to serve as the President.

Trump Administration Sued Over CFPB Appointment

President Trump’s administration has been hit with a lawsuit over its decision to appoint Mick Mulvaney as acting head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, despite the agency’s outgoing director having already picked his own successor. “The president’s attempt to install a White House official at the head of independent agency—while allowing that officer to simultaneously serve in the White House—is unprecedented,” Deepak Gupta, a lawyer representing Leandra English, said in a statement Sunday. English, the agency’s deputy director, has vowed to “stand up for the CFPB” after Trump appeared to override a decision by the agency’s former director, Richard Cordray, to name her as the acting leader. The decision triggered confusion among lawmakers and fueled concerns among Democrats that Mulvaney, a staunch critic of the consumer-rights agency, will overhaul it completely. CFPB General Counsel Mary McLeod has reportedly backed Trump in the dispute, saying the president can name an acting leader in accordance with the Federal Vacancies Reform Act, Politico reported. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) became one of the first lawmakers to condemn English’s lawsuit, calling it a “lawless action.” Cotton issued a statement calling for English’s dismissal from the CFPB, which he described as a “rogue, unconstitutional agency.”

It wouldn't surprise me If Mary McLeod was a distant relative of Trump's on his mother's side of the family as she was also a Mary MacLeod (even though the spelling is slightly different) the spellings of McLEod and MacLeod and other clans often differ with the a in Mac left out by some family members. The original spelling of Hilton was Hylton but some family members changed that. I know a bloke in Tasmainia who is distantly related to Trump and often defends the horrific things he says and does because of it for some reason... Needless to say he has lost a few of us as Facebook Friends the past year or so with some of his terrible opinions on various matters which actually matches Trump's opinions even though he is an excellent accordion player and has written some lovely tunes... : D

Donald Trump & GOP Admit They're 'Incapable Of Governing'
Lawrence O'Donnell argues President Donald Trump, Sen. Mitch McConnell, and Speaker Paul Ryan's attempted shaming of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer actually shows that they are incapable of governing and cannot pass a spending bill without help from the Democrats.

Well put and absolutely right, with nepotism and cronyism reigning supreme!

Has Trump Already Proven That He’s Dumber Than George W. Bush?
During the administration of George W. Bush, headlines across the globe proclaimed that he was the dumbest president in the history of the United States. But in just one short year, Donald Trump may have stolen that title from W through a combination of know-nothing statements and blatant lies in both interviews and on his social media accounts. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins makes the case that Trump has certainly earned the title of Dumbest US President.
