    From Stormy Daniels on Twitter...

    Technically I didn't sleep with the POTUS 12 years ago. There was no sleeping (hehe) and he was just a goofy reality TV star. But I digress...People DO care that he lied about it, had me bullied, broke laws to cover it up, etc. And PS...I am NOT going anywhere. xoxoxo https://t.co/Js9sEnanIk

    Imagine if Obama had fucked a pornstar in the raw.....and the GOP became aware.

    I’m so sick of this POS being held to a reality TV bar, instead of th god damned bar every other man who’s taken the oath of office has had to face.

    Tee hee Stormy. I’d be ashamed to be bragging about fucking Cheeto. I want him and his chain of whores, bimbos, and fugly yes men to all be burned in public at a grand bbq where we make America truly great again.

    I honestly don't care about the women that lowered themselves to sleep with him. I care about the fact that the man is a babbling fool and that the GOP Leadership is letting him lie and steal from the taxpayers without restraint.

    True, they don’t need to be on the burn list. Sarah H.S., Kellyanne, and Hope though do. And ivanka.

    It used to take only the whiff of an marital infidelity to bring a politician down. Now, he could be screwing porn stars in the Oval Office live on FOX and his supporters still wouldn't care.

    Source: Business Insider

    A Fox News contributor quit the network, calling it a 'propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration'


    Ralph Peters

    • Retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor Ralph Peters severed ties with the cable news network, slamming Fox and the president.
    • "Fox News is assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers," the commentator wrote in an email to his colleagues.


    Retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor Ralph Peters recently severed ties with the network, which he accused on Tuesday of "wittingly harming our system of government for profit."


    In a lengthy email to his colleagues first obtained by BuzzFeed, the foreign-policy hawk argued that the cable news network had been transformed from a "legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices" into a "propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration."


    "Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to 'support and defend the Constitution,' and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform," Peters wrote. "Today, I feel that Fox News is assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers."


    Peters, a former Russia analyst, warned that the network's hosts are advancing Russian President Vladimir Putin's agenda "by making light of Russian penetration of our elections and the Trump campaign."


    But Peters praised some of Fox's anchors and news reporters, who he said have bravely challenged the network's dogma.


    Peters, who was highly critical of President Barack Obama's administration, was suspended from Fox for a short period in 2015 for calling Obama a "total pussy" while on the Fox Business Network.


    Fox News did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

    Read the full letter below:

    On March 1st, I informed Fox that I would not renew my contract. The purpose of this message to all of you is twofold:


    First, I must thank each of you for the cooperation and support you've shown me over the years. Those working off-camera, the bookers and producers, don't often get the recognition you deserve, but I want you to know that I have always appreciated the challenges you face and the skill with which you master them.


    Second, I feel compelled to explain why I have to leave. Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to "support and defend the Constitution," and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform. Today, I feel that Fox News is assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers. Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed.


    In my view, Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration. When prime-time hosts--who have never served our country in any capacity--dismiss facts and empirical reality to launch profoundly dishonest assaults on the FBI, the Justice Department, the courts, the intelligence community (in which I served) and, not least, a model public servant and genuine war hero such as Robert Mueller--all the while scaremongering with lurid warnings of "deep-state" machinations-- I cannot be part of the same organization, even at a remove. To me, Fox News is now wittingly harming our system of government for profit.


    As a Russia analyst for many years, it also has appalled me that hosts who made their reputations as super-patriots and who, justifiably, savaged President Obama for his duplicitous folly with Putin, now advance Putin's agenda by making light of Russian penetration of our elections and the Trump campaign. Despite increasingly pathetic denials, it turns out that the "nothing-burger" has been covered with Russian dressing all along. And by the way: As an intelligence professional, I can tell you that the Steele dossier rings true--that's how the Russians do things.. The result is that we have an American president who is terrified of his counterpart in Moscow.


    I do not apply the above criticisms in full to Fox Business, where numerous hosts retain a respect for facts and maintain a measure of integrity (nor is every host at Fox News a propaganda mouthpiece--some have shown courage). I have enjoyed and valued my relationship with Fox Business, and I will miss a number of hosts and staff members. You're the grown-ups.


    Also, I deeply respect the hard-news reporters at Fox, who continue to do their best as talented professionals in a poisoned environment. These are some of the best men and women in the business..


    So, to all of you: Thanks, and, as our president's favorite world leader would say, "Das vidanya."

    If Obama had done that, Michelle would have slit and flayed him on national TV. As Paul Newman used to say, "Why eat hamburger when you've got steak at home?"

And it makes me feel like I'm doing something instead of sitting on the other side of the world feeling horrified and helpless.

    Plus they had really good deals when I subscribed.

    I try super hard to get my news from multiple sources. WaPo is my go to source. I've subscribed to NYT (tells me what I think) and Wall Street Journal (does not tell me what I think). I need the diversity of angles / opinions. I don't want to be one of the cattle blindly led. I probably still am though. Can't help it, NPR is what I listen to. I also make myself click on Fox news.com at least a few time a week. Just the news though. I couldn't give two shits about the "entertainment division."

    Trump did not follow specific warnings from his national security advisers when he congratulated Putin on his reelection, including a section in his briefing materials in all-capital letters stating “DO NOT CONGRATULATE,” officials familiar tell WaPo.
