Let’s compare what President Trump has accomplished since the inauguration (with that enormous crowd!) with what congressional Republicans have done.
In the past three weeks, Trump has: staffed the White House, sent a dozen Cabinet nominees to the Senate, browbeat Boeing into cutting its price on a government contract, harangued American CEOs into keeping their plants in the United States, imposed a terrorist travel ban, met with foreign leaders and nominated a Supreme Court justice, among many other things.

How there should be investigations? How someone – a Republican – must be at fault? How whatever interaction Donald Trump ever had with Russia, or Russians, was viewed suspiciously?

Investigate, they demand. Not just Flynn, but Trump, too.
Piers Morgan called J.K. Rowling a “serial loser” after the author attacked him in a Twitter feud over his defending of President Donald Trump’s travel ban.
“The more that J.K. Rowling has screamed at people to vote in a certain way, the more her people have lost,” the former CNN host told The Daily Caller founder on Fox News Monday night
