**"Trump, once again, isn’t failing at the game—he’s playing a completely different sport, right in front of us, and he’s winning. And all we’re doing is jabbering on about how he’s making this mistake or that one.

"He’s not building a team of experts to run the country, because he’s going to run it himself. They’re there to defend him and keep him in power, as loyal servants. Nothing more, nothing less.

"It’s all him. It always has been. They’re just there for decoration and to tell him how cool he looks while he knocks heads together.

"We’re basically all being outplayed…again. This doesn’t mean he can’t or won’t self-destruct due to bad moves in other areas, but hopefully at some point we’ll learn to stop underestimating his ability to read and manipulate people. He’s really, really good at it."**

"Cummings argues the HHS memo, and possibly memos sent by other agencies, appear to violate several laws, including the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act. The whistleblower law, Cummings said, requires the inclusion of a "mandatory statement that employee communications with Congress and Inspectors General are protected" in "any nondisclosure policy, form, or agreement.""

"He said his organization was concerned about what he called “the sharp deterioration of press freedom in the U.S.,” which he linked to Mr. Trump’s campaign, noting that the candidate had “obstructed major news organization, vilified the press and attacked journalists by name with unrelenting hostility.”"

The propaganda redefinition is underway. It's MSNBC that is unfairly denigrating an entire class of people, those poor Republicans who chose Donald Trump. If only we would give him a chance. His choosing scathingly bad and polarizing Cabinet members, that's just 'him being him'. If only liberals weren't so hateful.

""It's not starting off in that direction," says her less-optimistic-sounding husband, as Republicans in Congress gear up to repeal the Affordable Care Act. "You should have listened to MSNBC this morning. It's white and black, good and bad, God and the devil — and if you're in the other party, you're the devil.""
