WHY DOES TRUMP HATE THE MILITARY? He likes to be photographed with “warriors” but likes to degrade them with stupid nickname even more. Is it jealousy? Feelings of inadequacy?

The Democratic-led House put on a creditable showing with WITNESSES but Moscow Mitch shut down the show, reducing the Senate’s presentation to a joke. 270-some days till the election. Meanwhile, Trump is repeating everything he says four or five times, as if he’s trying to convince himself.
