Maybe they will cut off his Twitter account and he will have to fine something else to play with with those tiny hands.

It'll be interesting to see how much the Silicon Valley and lobbyist crowd will be affected and how Trump will handle their agenda out-of-control power.

Remember when libs whined 'bout Republicans trying to sabotage Obama before he took office and constantly referred to them as obstructionists?

Yeah, history apparently stops at 1-20-2017.

Top Senate Democrat: We will work to undermine, slow down Trump Cabinet confirmation hearings – TheBlaze

Top Senate Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has vowed to undermine and slow down the confirmation process of eight of President-elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees, the New York Democrat said Sunday.

According to the Washington Post, Schumer — the incoming Senate Minority Leader — disclosed the information recently to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

According to the Post, Schumer and Senate Democrats plans to target:

Rex Tillerson, Trump’s nominee for secretary of state

Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), Trump’s nominee for attorney general

Rep. Mick Mulvaney (S.C.), Trump’s nominee for the director of the Office of Management and Budget

Betsy DeVos, Trump’s nominee for education secretary

Rep. Tom Price (Ga.), Trump’s nominee for health and human services secretary

Andrew Puzder, Trump’s nominee for labor secretary

Steve Mnuchin, Trump’s nominee for treasury secretary

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Trump’s nominee for the head of the Environmental Protection Agency

“Any attempt by Republicans to have a series of rushed, truncated hearings before Inauguration Day and before the Congress and public have adequate information on all of them is something Democrats will vehemently resist,” Schumer said in a statement, according to the Post.

“If Republicans think they can quickly jam through a whole slate of nominees without a fair hearing process, they’re sorely mistaken,” he went on to say, adding that Trump is “attempting to fill his rigged cabinet with nominees that would break key campaign promises and have made billions off the industries they’d be tasked with regulating.”

Schumer also said that he is demanding at least two days of hearings per nominee and that no more than two nominees will have hearings in the same week.

Noticeably absent from Schumer’s list is Retired Gen. James Mattis, Trump’s nominee for defense secretary, who Trump has said he wants confirmed as quickly as possible.

Congress reconvenes this week and will begin hearings. Tillerson and Sessions are likely to be the first two nominees to receive hearings.

Either he's full of sh-t, which is par for the course, or he or someone he knows has had contact with someone who was involved in the Russian cyberattacks, and has obtained and is withholding information from intelligence communities for some reason. Those are the options.

I'm erring towards the lying thing.

“I think it’s unfair if they don’t know. And I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove. So it could be somebody else.”

“I also know things that other people don’t know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation,” Trump responded when asked why he doubts intelligence reports of Russian hacking, according to a pool reporter.

Five transportation issues to watch under Trump | TheHill

Some interesting things to pay attention to.

Here's my quick take:

Air traffic control - Take it away from the FAA and let non-profit corporations run it. Will be much cheaper.

Infrastructure - All for it if it is cost-efficient. I like Trump's idea of giving tax credits to private entities, which allegedly pay for it. Hopefully libs won't get their way and demand direct federal spending or unnecessary pork.

DC Metro funding - Fuq 'em. It's too expensive, they're way over-budget, and their safety record sucks donkey balls.

Cuba flights - Not really passionate one way or the other, not to mention I don't think it's that big of a deal. If I had to lean one way or the other, I'd say don't allow flights until Cuba treats their peeps better and makes it beneficial to us.

Driverless cars - Hell no. Hell-to-the-f*cking-no. Soda machines can't even take a creased dollar bill so I sure as sh*t don't want technology shoving a 4,000 pound object down the road, especially with zombie-like tards walkin' around streets aimlessly glued to their cell phones.

God, the next 4 years are gonna be awesome.

It's nice seein' the media being called out on their bias bs.

Besides being a Republican, the media hates Trump's twittering because he can reach Americans directly instead of 'em getting partisan spin from the liberal networks.

Trump promises to keep tweeting, angering traditional media – TheBlaze

Something seriously f*cked up when the president-elect cares more than the actual president.

It's also telling that peeps look to the president-elect over the sitting president.

Liberals are outraged at Gov. Rick Scott for calling Trump instead of Obama after Florida shooting – TheBlaze

Democrats are none too happy with Florida Gov. Rick Scott after he chose to call President-elect Donald Trump instead of President Barack Obama following Friday’s attack at the Fort Lauderdale airport, which saw five people slain.

In the aftermath of the attack, Scott told the media during a press conference that Obama had yet to reach out to him and that he had not tried contacting Obama. Instead, the Florida governor said that he had spoken to Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence “several times” in the hours following the shooting.

“I have reached out to President-elect Trump, and spoken to him and to Vice President-elect (Mike) Pence multiple times to keep them informed, and they told me whatever resources that we need from the federal government, they would do everything in their power to make that happen,” Scott said, according to CBS News.

But when pressed by reporters multiple times if he had reached out to Obama, he continually stated that he had not and that the aftermath of a shooting isn’t time to get “political.”

And that did not go over well with Democrats:

However, for reference, presidents typically reach out the governors of states that are facing a tragedy or crisis. During Obama’s time in office, he too has made this a general practice.

But Obama and Scott have not had a very amicable relationship over the last several years. In fact, after the Pulse Nightclub terrorist attack in Orlando last year, Obama reportedly never reached out to Scott and he denied Scott’s request to declare a state of emergency in the Sunshine State.
