President Donald Trump’s standing in national polls has consistently declined since the end of last month. His approval rating now sits at the lowest point of his presidency. Here are some questions and answers about what the polls do — and don’t — tell us.
Although it’s doubtful New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a Republican, will sign off on the measure should it be approved by the Senate and House later this year—he has been a staunch opponent of recreational marijuana…
Impeachment is the constitutionally sanctioned way to get rid of him, but that job would fall on the shoulders of a Republican-controlled Congress. Despite polls showing a collapse in the general public’s support for Trump, Republican backing for the president remains high. Thus, such a bold move seems unlikely for now.
The massive tax cuts are “so one-sided that Trump administration officials have even admitted, publicly, that they’re not even sure if it’s going to help the middle class at all,” “Ring of Fire” co-host Farron Cousins began, in his breakdown of the report.

On Wednesday, Comey sent a letter to FBI employees regarding his termination. Originally published by CNN, it is a cool-headed, straightforward note urging staffers not to dwell on the details. The missive expresses Comey’s dismay to be leaving the agency, which he describes as “one of the great joys” of his life.
What seems more likely is the narrative recounted by anonymous White House staffers to the New York Times and Politico, which depict Trump as furious about Comey’s refusal either to close or to publicly deny the FBI’s ongoing investigation into Russia’s election meddling.
Comey had been seeking more funds to go where the investigation was taking the FBI, media reported Wednesday. The Justice Department called this assertion “totally false,” affirming that whatever trail Comey’s FBI was following will likely go no further.

Echoing the official stance of his government, Choe asserted North Korea’s right to maintain and develop nuclear weapons as a deterrent to foreign invasion.

Right-wing media attempted to pacify the millions of Americans who would lose their health insurance coverage if the American Health Care Act (AHCA) becomes law with the absurd notion that people do not need insurance to receive access to health care via the emergency room.
While President Donald Trump and his feuding advisers have been ham-handed about almost everything since they occupied the White House a little over 100 days ago, removing Comey as FBI director was a clean kill. Or so they seemed to think.
One month ago, Donald Trump spoke to Fox Business about FBI Director James Comey, “I have confidence in him,” he said. “We’ll see what happens. You know, it’s going to be interesting.” So it has been. Trump’s firing of the FBI director on May 9 left official Washington stunned.
