It seems, contrary to initial appearances, the original travel ban injunc by the Seattle judge was not on decent grounds, and the Hawaii judge's ruling on the latest one is even worse:

President Trump's completely unfounded allegations about being wiretapped by President Obama are continuing to embarrass the country as the White House now has to apologize to the United Kingdom.  It's just great when allegations made by the President of the United States are termed "utterly ridiculous" by his closest foreign allies.

Trump's budget is getting a cold reception on Capitol Hill, even from his own party.

It is being noted that while President Trump's budget is eliminating all funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities ($148 million per year), it does continue to fund $183 million per year for security at Trump Tower because the First Lady doesn't want to pull her son out of school and move to the White House. That's the least of the problems with these cuts.

The "Repeal and Replace" of Obamacare is proving to be disastrous as the Ryancare/Trumpcare proposal (both men don't want it called that) seems to be making Obamacare more secure.

I wonder when we're going to start being "Great Again". [rolleyes]

The Republican battle cry to repeal and replace Obamacare has collapsed into a shambolic mess as both the moderate and the conservative wings of the Republican party balk at various provisions of the bill.   As it became apparent that the bill did not go far enough for conservatives, and went way too far for the moderates, to justify to their constituencies, Speaker Ryan and President Trump were faced with either holding a vote and face a humiliating defeat, or pull the bill and face further embarrassment.  The President seems to have been eager to hold a vote anyway, and then have representatives held responsible for their votes by voters in 2018.  The Speaker would be understandably less eager, as that could cause him to loose his majority and thus his Speakership in the House.  There was the added element that the bill faced even more difficulty in the Senate.  After 7 years of the GOP vowing to repeal President Obama's signature legislation, and Trump's vow to to make this his top priority, it now seems apparent that the Republicans are deeply divided about how to replace it.  President Trump has directed his ire at conservatives, and Speaker Ryan ultimately pulled the bill proclaiming that "Obamacare is the law of the land" for the foreseeable future.

The conservative "Freedom Caucus" in the House of Representatives is being credited with killing the bill.  There are reports that President Trump is being encouraged to keep a list of members for future political retribution.  However, moderates were just as reluctant to consider the bill over the drastic cuts to medicare and coverage of children under their parents plans, and the removal of the guarantee of coverage for people with pre-existing conditions etc. that were being proposed.
