Could it be a coincidence that first lady Melania Trump canceled her plans to accompany the president on his trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos this week just days after news broke that her husband had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels shortly after their son Barron was born?

Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t think so.

After reminding viewers about that “saga,” Kimmel noted that “all of a sudden” Melania Trump decided not to join her husband in Switzerland. “According to her director of communications, the first lady is skipping her trip due to ‘scheduling and logistical issues,’” the host said. “And because she hates him.

5 things Trump's attempted firing of Robert Mueller teaches us

Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large

1. Trump has a tin ear

2. Trump is paranoid

3. Trump can be talked down

4. Trump's top aides have no real idea what's going on

5. Trump's lawyers are telling him the investigation is almost over to keep him from firing Mueller

https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-booed-at-davos-for-criticizing-vicious-fake-media?ref=home

President Trump was reportedly booed by the crowd at the World Economic Forum in Davos when he tried to slam the “vicious” and “fake” media.

“As a businessman I was always treated really well by the press,” Trump said after his prepared speech. “It wasn’t until I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious and how fake the press can be.” The real-estate-mogul-turned-politician received a polite applause after his prepared remarks but then began to question why he—the leader of the free world— receives so much media attention.

Once he used the word “fake,” he appeared to lose the crowd entirely.

I thought Trump was going to end all this? He has no idea what to do about it.

An attacker driving an ambulance packed with explosives detonated them in Kabul on Saturday, leaving 40 people dead and 140 others injured, Afghan officials said.

Adam Sacks, the president of Tourism Economics, posited a theory for the decline.

It’s not a reach to say the rhetoric and policies of this administration are affecting sentiment around the world, creating antipathy toward the U.S. and affecting travel behavior.”

Donald Trump Refuses to Impose New Sanctions on Russia Despite Congressional Mandate
The administration once again defies Congress.

@sarahkendzior

Sanctions on Russia were voted on by a bipartisan Senate, 98-2. The president is refusing to enact them.

The FBI and DOJ -- checks on exec power -- are being "investigated" by a partisan body that obsequiously praises the president on command.

Yes indeed, if you already know that your chances are very remote in regard to re election, don't embarrass yourself by staying in the race, thus the case for many of the GOP in November.

The Republicans are starting to remind me of the Keystone Cops. grin

*********************************************************

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Tuesday urged his colleagues not to use the memo to undermine the Mueller probe, calling it “a completely separate matter.” His statement was a bit late -- Republicans and Fox News anchors had been using the mysterious memo to suggest it was time to fire Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight of the special counsel investigation.

House Republicans are retiring in droves. What's pushing them out?
Deirdre Shesgreen, USA TODAY

On Wednesday, Rep. Trey Gowdy—chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee—became the third GOP lawmaker in just the last week to announce plans to leave Congress at the end of this term.

The party that controls the White House generally loses seats in the midterm elections, and several nonpartisan political analysts believe that President Trump’s dismal approval ratings will be a significant added drag on Republican congressional candidates.

Getting warmer.

Corallo to Testify That Hope Hicks Said Russian Meeting E-Mails ‘Will Never Get Out’
The truth is slowly dripping out.

https://secondnexus.com/news/mark-corall...e24f1904b59aaad

Mark Corallo plans to speak to Robert Mueller’s team investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and collusion by President Donald Trump and members of his family and staff. Corallo resigned as spokesman for Trump’s legal team in July 2017 after only 2 months in the position.

At the time, people cited infighting on the Trump legal team for his abrupt departure. However Michael Wolff’s book, Fire and Fury, suggested the resignation related to concerns of potential obstruction of justice by Trump and other members of his staff.

Everything centers around the answer to a 2017 request for information from the New York Times to the Trump administration regarding a meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian officials at Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The response, crafted in June 2017 by President Trump aboard Air Force One via conference call with his son and other key advisers, contained false information. Russian e-mails exchanged with Trump Jr. prior to that Trump Tower meeting exposed the truth.

According to the New York Times, Corallo will tell Mueller he believed statements made by White House communications director Hope Hicks on a previously undisclosed conference call that included President Trump outlined a plan to obstruct justice. Hicks stated during the call that the so-called Russian e-mails, written by Trump Jr. before the Trump Tower meeting, “would never get out.”

Mark Corallo received a request from the Russia investigation last week and agreed to appear for an interview. When asked for corroboration on their story, Corallo “did not dispute” the Times account of his upcoming testimony.

Quite an interesting development here. Rick Gates' lawyers are moving to withdraw "immediately," given reasons the lawyers want to provide under seal.
