Too true. The sad part about the Trump presidency is all the lost media revenue. If he'd only spread his scandals out a bit, like a normal president each one would be newsworthy for a week at least. Instead, like a crazy, short fingered vulgarian he crams so many scandals into such a short time period that none of them are able to achieve their true potential ratings and revenue boosts. Sad.

FelixCulpa said: It's of no interest whether he had an affair with a porn star, a man, or a three way with an octopus and a goat. That's NOT the focus of Mueller's investigation concerning Stormy Daniels. The focus is whether or not Cohen's payment to Daniels represents an unlawful political contribution. As for the rest of the investigation, I'm not sure why somebody who ran on "drain the swamp" would have a problem with investigating shady financial dealings. I'll add for @Isobel_j that the charges against Flynn, Manafort, Papadopolous, Gates, Van Der Zwaan, 13 assorted Russians, various Russian companies, and others show that Mueller's not idle. Think of it like an Amish barn: it takes months of meticulous work to get everything cut and shaped, doweled solidly together and arranged in the right places. Even then it doesn't look like much, but a couple hours, a few pins in the right places, some siding and it's a full fledged barn. Right now Mueller's still in his workshop mortising together the pieces he does have and hoping to be able to close up gaps in the structure when he gets some more pieces. He seems like a careful craftsman and I doubt he's gonna call the neighbors and put out the cornbread for a barn raising until he's positive it's going to stand up. It may be a while, but Mueller will either put together a solid case, or effectively absolve Trump. Either one should be a win for The Donald since he'll either get rid of some "swamp creatures", or be confirmed as conforming to the law. I doubt he sees it like that though.

Well someone should cut him some slack because people are crazy for results

You crack me up but yes the media loses focus in exchange for the juicy details that gets the most attention and viewership. It's all about the advertisers and moolah sadly

Ha! Given Mueller's performance for a year now, Democrats may be skeptical he would be able to deliver. We'll see though!
