“The DNC should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked. They had bad defenses, and they were able to be hacked,” Trump said in a CBS News interview with Jeff Glor, aired Sunday on “Face the Nation.” “I heard they were trying to hack the Republicans, too. But, and this may be wrong, but they had much stronger defenses.”
Trump: “There, there, Vlady. It’s those darn Dem’s fault, not yours.”
President Donald Trump asserted Monday that the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller is unconstitutional and insisted that he has “the absolute right” to pardon himself, a declaration that follows the publication of a letter from the president’s legal team making the same assertion.
In his own retort, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) cited a Justice Department office of legal counsel published in 1974, four days before the resignation of former President Richard Nixon, that reads “under the fundamental rule that no one may be a judge in his own case, the President cannot pardon himself.”
“I know you have attention span problems, but it’s the first sentence,” Markey wrote, sharing a link to the Justice Department document.
Trump, rationalizing why he is blocking the Democratic response to the Nunes memo:
“The Democrats sent a very political and long response memo which they knew, because of sources and methods (and more), would have to be heavily redacted, whereupon they would blame the White House for lack of transparency,” the president wrote on Twitter. “Told them to re-do and send back in proper form!”
Yeah. He wants it in a form he can “read.”
“Here you go, Daddy. The new Democrat memo. Try to pay attention, O.K.?”
That’s the only explanation for this comment:
“I mean, to see sort of congenital, presumptive obstruction and negativity is very concerning,” she continued, “because it just means that the government can’t function fully, and that they’re obstructing regardless of who the individual is that’s being considered, regardless of the post that needs to be filled. And it’s very frustrating.”
First Michelle Obama’s speech was plagiarized by Melania, now Trump has stolen the cake from Obama’s 2013 inauguration.
Have these people no shame?

The cake on the left is the one I made for President Obama’s inauguration 4 years ago. The one on the right is Trumps. I didn’t make it.
