Well for one Dems just curbstomped in the midterms with nary a mention of Russia so they seem to have rightly turned the focus on policy and Trumpís incompetence. Focus now seems to be on the shutdown tantrum which is favorable for Dems. And even if there was no collusion during the election Trump stanning for Putin at every opportunity plus the latest news of him hiding their communications should be impeachable on its own; you damn well better believe it would have been for Hillary/

That picture's too good to be a URL and not embedded.

Are we supposed to be impressed that an alleged billionaire spent $1,000 on McDonald's?

Also, I'm probably way late to this but typing out McDonald's made me realize it's probably his favorite food because it has his name in it.

Thereís no pressure. GOP controls the senate.

Probably just got back from the drive thru run.

Seriously, though, is the person who manages the thermostat on furlough? Maybe nobody else can figure it out... Wouldn't be the first struggle this administration has had with the basic operation of the White House.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

the looks on their faces when they get dinner at the white house and it's ****ing mcdonalds.

Mcdonalds is obv not getting paid by Trump.

He might as well sell space on a side of the white house and put a giant arch on it while he's at it.

Imagine being the McDonald's manager who gets a call from some dude saying they need dozens of Big Macs for the White House. Probably took them like an hour to establish it wasn't a prank.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

So I assume what went down is that Trump was told he'd have to either cancel or pay for the food himself, and he was like, "**** that... Dollar menu!"

My pony was late because it took him so long to order all the Big Macs and Quarter Pounders in all the land.

I present to you the moment when Donald J. Trump truly became the President of the United States of America.

There's only what 20 places with actual food he could've gotten that much food from within a few blocks of the white house?

This Twitter thread lays out the timeline of the NYT asking Trump for comment about the Trump Tower meeting and him meeting secretly with Putin twice the day after. Holy ****.

If you listed every activity, ever done by anyone on earth, from best to worst, eating cold McDonald’s with Trump would surely be dead last.

So much to unpack in those photos:

- Nice that they were able to dig out the good silver to hold the nugget sauces.

- That’s probably more Filet-o-Fish than that store sells in a month.

- I’ve never seen Trump looking so giddy.

Indeed they do. And that's to stop me from being afraid that the Dems will Dem? Reach a bipartisan agreement in the Senate that McConnell is ok moving forward and then yes, the pressure will be squarely on the House.

There was also Wendy's, Burger King, and Dominoes.

He's expecting to be reimbursed. Or he's keeping the leftovers.
