Obama officials working against President Trump

I was wondering if President Trump were not the president what the news media would have to talk about. Their all-consuming hatred is now bordering the pathetic. We have an ex-president acting like he is still the president, attending functions for world leaders only, as well as trying to turn other world leaders against the present president, who has done more in the short time he has been in office than the ex-president has done in all the time he was in office. We have an ex-Attorney General talking negative about a tax proposal on TV that has not even passed Congress.

And Congress — what can I say? — rather than wasting time trying to find dirt on the president and his cabinet, should instead be thinking what they can do for the country. I look forward to the results of the independent investigation of the so called “collusion” of president Trump and Russia. This will open other investigations within the Obama administration. Maybe we will find out why Mrs. Clinton got away with selling 20 percent of our uranium holdings to the Russians. What about the billions of dollars missing from the Justice department under her watch. Oh, and by the way, those advertisers of the Fox network are concerned, that can go both ways. Remember the “ silent majority.” Stay tune folks, the fun has just begun.
