Trump is the guy who keeps bringing up the attendance figures on his inauguration or this ridiculous topic would be forgotten. The rest of the world is either laughing at us or very concerned about America who they always looked up to before. He has got to be by far the most insecure man ever to be president. He has told more lies in 4 days as president than I ever heard Obama accused of in 8 years.

Who's counting? Not the GOP. In regard to his insecurity, it's becoming a daily BREAKING NEWS saga to listen to his Chief of Staff being grilled for the lies he or Trump told solely to justify his thin skinned lies and irrational outbursts.

Mr.Obama: 'If you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan'

The ACA(Obamacare)is working well, wouldn't you say?

I love that tired old rebuttal you Conservatives use. Now for a few simple questions
Who sets the insurance rates?
Who changed the insurance rates?
I know, this was the deal, Obama secretly made a pact with insurance companies, he stated to them, let me garner 20 million clients for you, once that's done, take the liberty and raise the rates. BTW never mind the fact that you promised to allow pre existing health issues to be covered. It really takes a dullard conservative to think that Obama and the insurance companies were that far ahead of the ball game....and think, you guys said that he wasn't smart. wink

Trump Signs Executive Order Requiring Elimination of Two Regulations For Every New One Implemented
Katie Pavlich

President Donald Trump kicked off his second full week in the Oval Office by meeting with small business owners at the White House and signed an executive order requiring the elimination of two federal regulations for every new regulation being implemented.

"The American dream is back and we’re going to create an environment for small business like we haven’t had in many, many decades, " Trump said. "We are going to simplify, reduce, eliminate regulations."



Trump also added that Dodd-Frank is a "disaster" and said his administration plans to take aim at the legislation, which was passed by Congress and signed by President Obama in 2010.

The order comes a week after Trump took executive action to ease the burden of Obamacare regulations.

One can only laugh at the foolishness of our fellow GOP, logic and common sense states that when they're disregarded, the propensity to repeat the same mistakes more than likely happens. Somehow you were MIA when the banks destroyed themselves because of a lack of regulations. Please read any article in regard to the cause of the 2008 recession, bet that you were crying the blues at the time. whistle
More than likely your Great Granddad did in 1929 for the same reasons

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/02/trump-impeachment-bets-234931

There’s already talk of impeachment, just three weeks into Donald Trump’s turbulent presidency. In fact, many are already betting on it.

Gambling houses all over the world are taking in action on whether Trump, inaugurated just last month, will resign or be impeached. And the odds aren’t as long as you might think.

Ladbrokes, the British oddsmaking giant, has Trump’s chances of leaving office via resignation or impeachment and removal at just 11-to-10, or just a little worse than even money. The odds of Trump being impeached this year in the House of Representatives are only 4-to-1, according to the Irish bookmaker Paddy Power, despite GOP control of the chamber. You can win $180 on a $100 bet with Bovada, the online gaming site, that Trump won’t make it through a full term — though the bet is off if Trump passes away during the next four years.

Analyst: Flynn disrespecting the presidency
Story highlights
Flynn resignation is an embarrassment for Trump
His departure sent shockwaves around the world
Washington (CNN)Michael Flynn's resignation as national security adviser removes an immediate political headache for the White House but will do little to dispel suspicions about his ties with Russia that now threaten to envelop President Donald Trump's nascent administration.

Flynn quit late Monday as controversy raged over revelations that he misled Vice President Mike Pence -- who then defended him on television -- over whether he discussed US sanctions with Moscow's ambassador to the US before the inauguration. Such a move could be a breach of the law.
On a night of stunning, fast-moving drama, extraordinary even by this White House's elevated standards, Flynn's fate took on a sense of inevitability despite Trump's instinct to retain a loyal aide. By Monday evening, White House press secretary Sean Spicer issued a statement saying Trump was "evaluating the situation." His departure was confirmed hours later.
Read Michael T Flynn's resignation letter
The former general's resignation -- at the start of only the fourth week of the new administration -- is an embarrassment for Trump and a blow to a White House already embroiled in internal political dramas. It deprives Trump, who has no foreign policy experience and a barely formed national security team, of his most important White House adviser charged with keeping Americans safe from foreign threats.
His departure sent shockwaves around the world, raising questions about the administration's readiness to confront any sudden national security crisis. And since Trump frequently boasted that he would install a governing team of the highest caliber, Flynn's fall from grace is certain to raise questions about the judgment of the President himself.
Potential ramifications
The potential ramifications of the Flynn saga deepened as Monday night wore on. It emerged that the Justice Department warned the White House last month that Flynn had not been truthful about the calls with the Russian envoy and could be susceptible to Russian blackmail.
That information, disclosed to CNN by sources familiar to the matter, exposed the White House itself to questions about what officials did with the Justice Department warning and whether Trump himself was told.
Also unknown is whether Trump was aware that Flynn spoke to the Russian ambassador to the US about American sanctions imposed on Moscow late in the Obama administration to punish the Kremlin's alleged intervention in the presidential election.

How to get fired by the President
Behind the scenes before Flynn's resignation
WH warned he could be blackmailed
Meet his potential replacements
This doesn't end WH controversy
Read Flynn's resignation letter
"What did the President know and when did he know it?" senior CNN political analyst David Axelrod said, using a phrase made famous by the Watergate scandal.
That unanswered question will fuel bipartisan congressional concerns about the administration's relationship with Russia and conduct in the Flynn affair.
Before Flynn's resignation, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio told CNN's Manu Raju that his contacts with the Russian embassy should form part of a Senate Intelligence Committee investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the presidential election.
Adam Schiff, the ranking Democratic member of the House Intelligence Committee, said Flynn's departure had become inevitable, but also warned that the controversy was far from over.
How to get fired by the president of the United States
"Flynn's departure does not end questions over his contacts with the Russians, which have been alleged to have begun well before December 29," Schiff said in a statement. "These alleged contacts and any others the Trump campaign may have had with the Kremlin are the subject of the House Intelligence Committee's ongoing investigation."
He went on: "Moreover, the Trump Administration has yet to be forthcoming about who was aware of Flynn's conversations with the Ambassador and whether he was acting on the instructions of the President or any other officials, or with their knowledge."
Personal aspects
Apart from the national security and even legal ramifications of Flynn's conduct, there is also a personal aspect for Trump.
The former general was picked for the role of national security adviser despite his controversial past. He was fired from the Obama administration from his post as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency over claims he was a poor manager. Conservatives, however, complained that the real reason for his clash with the previous administration was over differences on Islamic terrorism.
Flynn emerged as a loyal and outspoken supporter of Trump, warning graphically on the campaign trail about the dangers America faces from terrorism. Administration officials indicated Trump did not fire Flynn.
Behind the scenes: A White House in turmoil
In the end, after the revelations about Flynn and the fact that the national security adviser had embarrassed the vice president, he had little choice but to step down. Had he remained in the administration, Pence's credibility would have been seriously eroded.
Flynn said in his letter of resignation that he had apologized to both the Pence and the Trump and that his apology had been accepted.
"Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador," Flynn said in his letter of resignation.
Trump must now move quickly to find a new national security adviser both to steady his reeling administration and the morale of his NSC and to send a signal of foreign policy continuity to US allies and enemies.
Trump on Monday named Gen. Keith Kellogg, who is already serving as NSC Chief of Staff as the interim national security adviser. A senior administration official said Kellogg, retired Gen. David Petraeus and former Vice Admiral Bob Harward are possible replacements for Flynn. A senior official told CNN Tuesday that Harward is considered the top contender for the job.
Petraeus presents an intriguing dilemma for Trump, since he is widely respected in Washington over his stewardship of the Iraq war surge, is a consummate political player, a former CIA director and would confer immediate gravitas and credibility on a rudimentary White House foreign policy shop.
But Petraeus fell from grace over the mishandling of classified information and remains on probation. Though he would not require Senate confirmation, his appointment would open Trump to claims of inconsistency given that he lambasted his Democratic foe Hillary Clinton over her private email server during the election campaign to make the case that she was careless with the nation's top secrets.

Flynn's departure from the administration also adds new uncertainty about the direction of its foreign policy, particularly towards Russia.
The former general was seen as an advocate of Trump's plans to seek to ease the estrangement in relations with Moscow -- a stance that has mystified both Republican and Democratic foreign policy experts in Washington.
But the President has in recent days reversed some of his most searing rhetoric -- embracing the so-called one-China policy that governs US relations with Taiwan after earlier warning that it was on the table in trade talks with Beijing.
He also offered a red carpet welcome to Japan's Prime Minster Shinzo Abe -- and apparently did not follow up on his demand for Tokyo to pay more for US security protection.
So a reversal on his position on Russia should not be ruled out if a new national security adviser takes a different approach.
Politically, meanwhile, Trump's decision to let Flynn go will fuel new speculation about how he will handle other feuds that are rocking his administration. It may be too early to rule out other departures.
