Why did Trump reply honestly to the reporter's question

about whether he told Putin to back off meddling with US elections?

He said that the subject didn't come up. He could have lied....lying is second nature to him, like breathing. He told the truth and all the flags went down on the field for me.

Does anybody have any ideas as to why he did that?

Who wins the normalization prize today?

The republicans, the press, Sarah Sanders, the rest of us?

It's perfectly alright for our President to discuss matters of our national security with our greatest foreign adversary. Isn't it?

Why doesn't Trump just put Putin in the Cabinet?

They talked about the Mueller Report....let that sink in.

Why Barr did what he did:

1) He was instructed to do it;

2) He was confident that he would have "cover" for his lies;

3) He knows that there are no standards of behavior anymore and that the American people are so beaten down that there will be no consequences.

He betrayed a close friend and violated the oath he took when he became a lawyer and a public servant. He spit on the legacies of Elliot Richardson and Archibald Cox.

He didn't do all of this in the heat of the moment. He planned for it. He telegraphed it in his 19 page "job application."

He did all of this for Donald Trump and it will haunt him for the rest of his life and be the headline on his obituary notice.

Sad, very, very, very sad.
