I know, the Nasdaq is down 100 and tech stocks are engulfed in flames. But how do you expect me to sit here and ignore this story? As a person who lives to 'stir the pot', this is the best timeline for me. All I have to do it sit back and watch the President of the United States talk shit all day, providing me with endless ways to trigger those opposed to him.

Just to recap today's impeachable offense.

Trump tweeted to Joe Scarborough ( a never Trumper), and his soon to be wife Mika Brzezinski, these insane comments.

speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..

Sen. Sasse

Sen. Collins

This has to stop – we all have a job – 3 branches of gov’t and media. We don’t have to get along, but we must show respect and civility.

Here was Paul Ryan's response.
