Talkback with JP Sottile and James Moore. We'll try to dissect this incredible WEEK THAT WAS, as the President's head begins to spin at the speed of light.

Above the law? What law? Fire the law! Fire the judges! Fire the press!

As the Russian nuisance tightens around his neck, Trump summarily fires the FBI Director, who finds out about it on TV.

"Look, he's a showboat. He's a grandstander."

--Donald J. Trump, talking to the mirror, er, I mean, about firing James Comey, which the president admits may have had something to do with "this Russian thing" after all

The so-called realDonaldTrump also tweeted that...

James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!

..Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings"...

Tune in for Talkback with Newsvandal JP Sottile as he and James Moore go INSIDE THE HEADLINES for another WEEK THAT WAS.

And it most surely was another week in Trumplandia USA.

Will Trump be able to make headway on Middle East Peace on his trip abroad? Will the Russian collusionI investigation continue on its trajectory? Will Joe LIeberman be the new FBI Director? Who will replace Chaffetz to oversee the oversight committee? Will the Pope and The Donald hit it off? How about that embassy move to Jerusalem for Israel?

Newsvandal JP Sottile discusses (emphasis on cusses) this bizarro than thou week in politics with James Moore. Let's just say the Trump clan has made the movie "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" look like an after school special. Boy Scouts, Scaramucci, Priebus, Kelly, McCain, ACA repeal--NOT, police brutality, Sessions, Kushner, Manafort, North Korea, Lebanon, etc. Are things finally coming together or are the wheels falling off? You beat the judge. Join us for a dive into the wheel of misfortune. (Yes, that pesky Russian investigation is quietly continuing.)
