Just thought I would start a thread that isn't necessarily about any specific general politics topic that applies to a thread already started but relevant in current events. It's a catch-all that prevents a thousand other threads from being open for just a few days. If you have some relevant general political commentary you'd like to share and it doesn't fit in a thread already open, then share it here. I'll give it a shot so you get where I'm coming from. Maybe the mods could sticky post this so it remains on top. Today the President of the United States is in Viet Nam to meet with the Chairman of North Korea. You'd think that would be important enough to the entire American government to support those efforts. After all, if the President succeeds, the whole country succeeds, right? So how does Nancy Pelosi and the Dems in the House show their support? They have chosen this day of all days of the year to interrogate the President's former attorney(who's already been convicted of lying to Congress) in the hopes of digging up dirt on the President. It couldn't be put off until next week. No, they would rather give the President this additional distraction while he's trying to carry on high-level negotiations about the de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula. It's an unprecedented act by Congress intentionally meant to show how little respect the Dems have for the office of the President doing the work of the people of this nation. They can not claim they hope he is successful in the slightest and so they are turned up to "10" of the Trump resistance scale 24/7. And the mainstream media doesn't even point out this nuance of the Dems strategy because they are complicit with the Trump resistance movement.
