The DNC should be telling him to not seek re-election and get someone else in there.

Trey Gowdy's not running for re-election, either.

Republicans in Congress seem way more certain they are losing the House than even polls indicate.

They were also certain they were losing the presidency in 2016.

True, though they're dropping out at the same time that the polls are actually closing. I mean, I still would think the House would flip, but it seems like they feel it's already a certainty. If the country as a whole decides that this President doesn't at least deserve a check, I'd be fairly surprised.

When someone asks me "is there such a thing as karma" I will forever use this as an example:

Quote:
Train carrying GOP lawmakers to policy retreat hits truck; 1 dead

Associated Press on MSN.com · 39m

No lawmakers were seriously injured Wednesday when their Amtrak train collided with a garbage truck near Charlottesville, Virginia.


And yes it's terrible the driver died but the GOP train hit a garbage truck.

Yay! DACA!

I'm glad this circus can take a break, and I'm glad Texas and Florida are getting hurricane relief, but the Dems look like dumbshits who got played.
