Uh-huh. Take that up with #MoscowMitch.
:cool:



Nice fake News meme

Mich did not have the powers to enforce action against Russian interference

Now Sherman lets go back into the wayback machine return to 7th grade, going into civics class,

3 separate branches of government.

Enforcment is the power granted to the executive branch, not the legislative branch

Executive branch is PRESIDENT (OBAMA DID NOT ENFORCE LAWS PREVENTING THE INTERFERENCE)

Legislative branch, Senate and House have no enforcement powers

The meme is cute as a bug in a rug, by it is a bigger lie than "The check is in the mail" or "I caught a fish this big"

Bullshit.
That meme has been debunked so many times I've lost count.
Obama imposed sanctions and booted out Russian agents.
Donald Trump did diddly squat.
Trump insulted our intelligence agencies by believing Putin over their findings.
Trump was happy to have the help of Russia to get elected. He's not about to do anything to stop them from interfering in the next election.

Sanctions that Trump had to make stiffer. because they were weak and did not prevent interference..


Putin said shit and flexible Obama would squat.

Right except for those pesky Presidential Signing Statements.

President of the United States

On the day President Donald Trump signed the bill into law, he issued two separate, simultaneous signing statements.[3][13] In the statement meant for Congress[14] he said: "While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed. In its haste to pass this legislation, the Congress included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions" — such as restrictions on executive branch′s authority that limited its flexibility in foreign policy.[15][16] Among other things, the statement noted that the legislation ran afoul of the Zivotofsky v. Kerry ruling of the Supreme Court. The president appeared to indicate that he might choose not to enforce certain provisions of the legislation:[14] "My Administration will give careful and respectful consideration to the preferences expressed by the Congress in these various provisions and will implement them in a manner consistent with the President's constitutional authority to conduct foreign relations."[15] It also said: "Finally, my Administration particularly expects the Congress to refrain from using this flawed bill to hinder our important work with European allies to resolve the conflict in Ukraine, and from using it to hinder our efforts to address any unintended consequences it may have for American businesses, our friends, or our allies."[15]

The other statement by Donald Trump noted: "[T]he bill remains seriously flawed – particularly because it encroaches on the executive branch's authority to negotiate. Congress could not even negotiate a healthcare bill after seven years of talking. By limiting the Executive's flexibility, this bill makes it harder for the United States to strike good deals for the American people, and will drive China, Russia, and North Korea much closer together.[17]"

Putin says jump, and Trump asks how high on the way up.
The Hill said that? Well, then, it must be true, sure.

Yes, when I was in elementary school, we pledged allegiance to a flag with 48 stars. Now, elementary school children pledge allegiance to one with 50, while right wingers put memes on Facebook implying that they don't salute the flag at all any more, and the dupes believe them.
