    There he goes again - poor desperate Joe invoking every reference/plea to his skyfairy that he can. He needs viewers to help him believe nonsense. It's sad. Maybe he should promote Santa Claus instead; at least you get something real from Santa.

    I agree with everything Joe said here, except the myth of "mainstream Republican". folks, when are you gonna face the fact that a "mainstream, moderate Republican" has been, for by far most part, only an illusion, especially, since the so-called "christian" right's (read, antihumanrights hypocrites') overtake of republican party committed by newt gingrich-pat robertson-jerry falwell since early '80ies all the way onward?
    I can think of literally only 3, helllooooo, ONLY 3, of course, FORMER Republicans who could have been called mainstream, moderate. They are Lincoln Chaffey, left/or thrown out by Republican Party looooong ago, joined Democratic Party, late Arlen Specter who warned of the unbearable extremism of republican party in 2000s and Cristy of Florida, joined Democrats. Nobody else! all other republicans chose long ago to worship pat robertson, so-called "evangelicals" (read, evilgenicals), the worst of faux-news, nra, kkk, and antiamerican dictators that they call their allies, such as mbs, putin, kadyrov.......

    We're supposed to believe everything you say because you care about us so much really. When lifetime civil service people have basically decided that their party better win the election weather that is the way the government runs or not that is wrong but that's okay because the Democrats are always right and Republicans are always wrong and go ahead spin your lies just as you always have

    Is it not the whole point of ambassadors that they are there to maintain a presence in the world which is as neutral/no-partisan as can be in the case of administration or presidential changes?.

    PDJT's overt and covert ties to Putin and the Russian oligarchs are extremely troubling.. would that Hilldog +Bill or sleepy Joe have the reins of America's foreign policy... could only hope and pray someday that the impossible would occur: Bernie Bernie Bernie - now there's a young healthy person with 0 dings to Russian influence and impeccable foreign overseas experience and vigor! Go Bernie- the only answer!!!

    It's PR 24/7 at the Trump White House. They have to lie directly to their base in order to retain control. Mitt Romney will do nothing until it becomes politically advantageous for him and a possible presidential bid in the future. Just another GOP coward.

    Rudy IS Trump's State Department.
    Trump only cares about relationships with Russia, China, North Korea, Turkey, Israel, and Saudi Arabia. He only cares about those who will give him money.

    Stalinism 101. Putin is a great admirer of Stalin. He's grooming his new conquest (the USA) to accept a Stalinist regime.

    Trump probably thinks that if Putin and Erdogan can get away with it, he also should be able to create a society like that. Put his henchmen all over. Then do whatever he can to get elected, unchecked because of the majority in the senate. And after his second term try to put DJTJ in office. Or Ivanka.

    Back in 2008, the way I would describe the Republican Party was the way we all finally see it now. I knew this all along... Hate for minorities, Jesus worship, Gun Worship, Disdain for Science, Disdain for facts and evidence, Disdain for the Middle Class, Gullibility desease, and yearn for a White Christian Evangelical Caliphate.

    Mitt Romney is a coward and he’s also in a demonic cult called Mormonism. Ask Mitt ( that not really a name ) about his magic Mormon under wear and his belief that he will become a God as a male Mormon.
