    The most informative/telling aspect, of the trump lawyer dissembling episode, came when the fox news talking head defined the whole alternate facts/reality interview as weird.

    Trump just wanted to hear on TV that he wasn't being investigated, so he paid a guy to go on all the news shows and say such.

    The best was when his lawyer got confused and said he was being investigated in one sentence and in the next kept saying "let me be crystal clear" as he reversed his comment.

    Actually neither is lying!

    Trump says he is being investigated and it is probably 99% sure that he is as is all of his people!

    The Atty says no he isn't being investigated because they have not recieved formal declaration of investigation from Mueller, which they probably haven't. After all does this high end, high power, high priced Atty actually think that Mueller is going to go around and say ,"I am investigating you and you and you and you to Mr. Trump.

    Its all the typical Atty. doing the typical Atty. double talk thing and Trump standing in front of the mirror every morning adoring himself, doing the tweet thing.

    I agree Fred, we're left on our own to figure out who's lying, Trump or his lawyers.

    Is Trump lying or are his lawyers lying?

    It's likely that Trump is lying, again, because that is sort of his modus operandi.

    But then again, his lawyers have a history of lying quite a bit, too.

    Hmmm, I'm going to have to say that his lawyers are lying.

    So who is lying Trump or his attorneys? That is a really hard one, based on previous track record you have to think it is Trump, but then who lies for Trump, that would be his attorney's. This is a really tough question to figure out.

    "Again, Trump may not be personally investigated, but his administration is being subject to a "witch hunt" by liberals and Democrats."

    Both the Senate and the House are conducting bi-partisan investigations. I don't know where you get your "liberal" thing but when you repeat GOP "witch hunt" talking points, you come off sounding like a parrot.

    Frieheit: Gabby Giffords was shot by Jared Loughner who said he only wanted to get on TV, not because he hated Democrats! The man who shot up the baseball game specifically targeted Republicans and was a Bernie Sanders campaign worker! When Giffords was shot, there were not hundreds of tweets supporting his actions like there were in the later case! Compare the motivations and who inspires and excuses them!

    Whether or not Trump is personally under investigation is something his legal counsel has no say over. Nor is it anything Robert Mueller is likely to confirm or deny. But one thing is certain. An honest investigation follows the trail of evidence to wherever it leads.

    You mean like Benghazi, right.

    Yeah we actually do get it, the right just refuses to hold their own responsible....ever.

    Thid, sorry you thought the hanging and burning effigies of Obama were in good taste, and the beheading of Trump was pure evil, it's apparent it in your eye the problem lies.

    Frozen Fractals: I searched for some time trying to find the play you referenced but could not find any reference for such play. Can you please provide me with any source that it ever existed? Facts only please, anonymous sources are not sources at all. Thank you.

    RC: Everything I told you is true, not some of it! Here are some more truth America will witness: President Trump is not going to resign. He isn't going to quit and he is NOT going to be impeached! He will continue to do the work the people who elected him until his term(s) end! The Democratic party will continue to lose national elections and never understand why! God bless President Trump and God bless America!

    It could be that those of you who don't understand my prior comment don't get the obvious difference between an "investigation" -which has legitimate reasons for a search for truth - and a "witch hunt" - a vicious going after innocents to satisfy a blood lust/hatred (as in Salem, MA.).

    Again, Trump may not be personally investigated, but his administration is being subject to a "witch hunt" by liberals and Democrats. The evident purpose is to prevent Trump's effective running of the US government.

    "There was never a "play" depicting the assassination of Obama."

    Actually there was. A Minneapolis based group in 2012 did the same play using someone who looks like Obama in the role of Caeser. Outrage was so minor that Delta had pulled funding for the Trump one but not the Obama one (they sponsored the theatres that did each of them).

    Re: Thid

    Some of what you say is true and some is not!

    "The nastiness from the left is far, far greater than anything our nation has ever seen! Its a shameful thing! "

    You have either forgotten or are not truthful enough to mention the "nastiness" that was shown to Obama-and yes it was just as vitriolic as what is being demonstrated today!

    need I remind you of the Obama hangings in effigy (sic) , the depicting of him and his family as apes and those were the nice ones, every bit as sick and demeaning as what is being expressed toward Trump today.

    The difference between Trump and Obama is night and day! Obama whether you liked his politics or not conducted himself with dignity and diplomacy in face of all the opposition and insults, Trump again must lash out, insult, demean and wallow in self agrandizment, setting the stage for much of what he receives in the way of disrespect.

    And yes you make your point very well. You receive what you sow, and no, the nastiness we are seeing is not greater than anything we have ever seen in the past. We have witnessed it for the last eight years.

    This administration doesn't know the left from the right. Saddest time in the American history since the McCarthy hearings.

    @Thid Barker:

    In 2012 the same theater company did the same play, except Caesar was a tall thin black man.

    Kathy Griffin did a tasteless video. Google "obama lynched effigy" and see the many, many hits.

    Conservatives used a parade of extreme racist memes, posters, billboards and statements about President Obama and his family. Ugly words, ugly pictures.

    Conservatives have been involved in multiple incidents with guns, including the Bundy debacle in Oregon. I'll take a peaceful demonstration with tens of thousands marching in protest over an armed standoff.

    Trump called Mrs Clinton a "nasty woman" in their Vegas debate. Senator Warren, in a campaign speech, played on that: "Get this, Donald. Nasty women are tough. Nasty women are smart. And nasty women vote." It wasn't "hate," it was fierceness, and Trump last the popular vote by 2.8 million.

    Since then Trump has achieved the lowest approval ratings at home and abroad of any modern president. His administration is racked with scandal, plagued with infighting and leaks, and can't get anything through the GOP controlled congress.

    Sad.

    RC in WJ: It has been said that all people see the world, not as it really is but as they really are! There have been Obama critics, myself included but the world never saw a "comedian" holding up Obama's decapitated head, nor did conservatives riot and destroy property and attack police "protesting" Obama. There was never a "play" depicting the assassination of Obama.
    No conservative gunman ever purposely stocked and shot Democrat members of congress. Never has a democrat been shouted down on college campuses nor has there been anything like the left has hurled at President Trump! There was a headline on the national news showing Elizabeth Warren (D) Mass. with her face contorted in the bitterness of her heart shouting treats to President Trump, "You ain't seen nasty yet" she screamed! I think she made my point very well! The nastiness from the left is far, far greater than anything our nation has ever seen! Its a shameful thing! This is the Democratic party of America today!

    "The left's vicious demonstrations of total intolerance for President Trump is harming the Democratic party! They offer nothing for rational people to vote for,"

    Thid you may have a point! Looking back at what the eight years of "Total Intolerance" of President Obama did to the Republican party, in that they became so rabid and incapable of sound thinking they ended up putting someone in the oval office that is by his own words what one would call a "Nut Job".

    Suggest again you step back from the koolaid trough, you are starting to sound like Ted Nuggent!

    The left's vicious demonstrations of total intolerance for President Trump is harming the Democratic party! They offer nothing for rational people to vote for, except of course, leftist gunmen shooting GOP congressmen, leftists "comedians" holding President Trump's decapitated head as a sick joke, Hollywood elitists threatening to blow up the white house, leftists shutting down free speech on liberal college campuses and an seemingly endless investigations without producing one shred of evidence of any crime! I predict this will continue and Democrats will continue to lose elections! What rational person would vote for that?

    The President says this, then that, then this again. Then later something else.

    His Spokespeople say the President said yet another thing, and then maybe he did say that the first time, but then again maybe not.

    I am getting a headache.
