    TPM’s take on the Trump Meeting:

    Trump was asked – not surprisingly and not unreasonably – what about your unpopularity with Hispanics voters and what about down-ballot races? Trump’s response: No, Hispanics love me!

    This is obviously ridiculous on its face. The GOP is generally unpopular with Hispanics and Trump is personally unpopular with Hispanic Americans at a level that is historic and unprecedented. We know this from a limitless trove of public opinion data. As a factual matter, it’s no more ridiculous than the 12th Article of the Constitution Trump pledged to protect or numerous other examples of Trump nonsense. But it has a particular import here…

    If I were a Republican member of Congress and heard what Trump said, I’d be angry. And I strongly suspect many of them were. If I’m a GOP member of Congress I hear that and think, “Damn, you’ve got zero plan to ensure I don’t lose my job. I can’t even tell if you care. But you definitely haven’t even thought about it.”

    Well apparently in response to the question “If you win the Presidency, will you serve?”, which .should be answered by a definitive yes, Trump said “I’ll let you know how I feel about it after it happens.”. I guess we could call this how Newt/Christie/Ivanka becomes President? I mean WTF?

      This will end in acquittal, without a doubt. Judge Barry Williams hasn’t got the balls of a field mouse. F*** him.
