Welcome to Thursday, left, right, and centers...
So here's a tweet that didn't age well:
Nearly three years to the day of sending that tweet, Michael Cohen, Trump's former attorney, was sentenced to thirty-six months in prison for tax fraud, campaign finance violations, and lying to Congress.
Cohen, who had also served as deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committee's Finance Committee, told the court his "weakness was a blind loyalty to Donald Trump" and that he "felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds."
Here's how you're answering Should a Trump Admin Rule Be Repealed to Let the IRS to Require That Non-Profits Disclose Their Donors?

Are you experiencing the benefits of the booming economy?
For more than a year, the jobless rate has hovered around 4 percent— including the last three months, when it's been at a half-century low of 3.7 percent.
According to Axios, this low joblessness is "lifting all boats."
For example, the economic expansion has "pulled hundreds of thousands of long-term unemployed people into jobs, often at companies where they learn transferable skills when previously they had few."
"This is win-win for employees and the aggregate economy," said Darrell West, head of the Center for Technology Innovation at the Brookings Institution. "Over time, having a better trained workforce will boost productivity and improve national competitiveness."

Michael Cohen gets three years Trump should get nine for being the master mind. But then you couldn’t really call trump a master mind at all could you. How about instead of wasting billions on the border wall and put it in funding for insurance for the general population. I’m paying for your insurance and you’re doing nothing for me.
Any money spent on a wall between the US and Mexico would be a colossal waste of our tax dollars. As well as being totally ineffective.
No funds for a border walll!!!
I do not want to spend tax dollars on a wall. I think money would be better spent on technology.
THE WALL❗️. No money should be appropriated for the wall . Last I read the wall would cost $35 Billion $ . Isn’t that what we are really talking about ...not the $6billion trump keeps on talking about . I’m in support of protecting our boarders ....I just find it unacceptable that we don’t have various alternatives to accomplish this task . Ones that are more effective and cost less . It’s called having options or various solutions to a problem so we can make intelligent and informed decision . It’s NOT build a wall or shut down the government . Falling right into trumps trap ... comon guys wake up ‼️
It seems Cohen should get more “time” for what he did...NO WALL/fence WANTED/needed here🤪
Do not fund the damn wall, put it to a better use
No funding for a border wall! Spend those billions on the US Vets and children who need it! Not on a damn ego trip for a con man who duped the gullible and ignorant into thinking he’d be a good president.
Build the Wall now Mr. President.
Fund the wall!
Not sure why we hate protection for our families but you’ll reap what you sow I guess
We need a real wall. They work
Build the wall you morons
Don’t waste taxpayer money on this dumb idea to satisfy trump. Please
NO $$$ for wall! Trump now wants to send immigrants from Vietnam back??? Why does he consider everyone of different cultures to be “violent criminals?” Generalizations intended to cover others, his wrong doing! Diversion, cover ups and lies. An unbiased mental health assessment of him by a qualified mental health professional is in order with full transparency and disclosure. Not the sham of the letter from his “doctor ”....
A border wall represents mindless political posturing and would be harmful to the environment. Please stop playing patsy with our so called President who is now implicated with stealing his own election.
Please fund the border wall. We need it for border security. This is one of the federal government’s only constitutional responsibilities.
Fund the WALL or see your way out the door of Washington as Alabama reps in 2020 after the votes are tallied!!’ You work for us not us for you!!!
Fund the wall.
NO WALL!!! spend the money on funding medical insurance for all and education!
