'No, Trump world, we are not just going to get over it, not now or ever.  Wrong is wrong, whether you parade it or put it away. In fact, it is the flaunting of wrongdoing that should carry more of a penalty, not less of one. We can’t allow our numbness to make this normal. It isn’t.'Trump’s strategy follows a simple logic: If it were wrong, I would be ashamed of it and attempt to conceal it. The fact that I haven’t attempted to shroud it is proof of its virtue.: Be brazen. Conduct your corruption in plain sight!' The harm has been done as America looked on, with no accountability  for any of it. But that time is drawing to an end.'

"click here. "How low will Trump go?" GET OVER IT! TRANSLATION?--" American voters gave Trump the presidency, so it's his to use and abuse as he wants. If you're looking for an apology, you might as well be looking for the yeti. What you should really be doing is looking the other way. Mere hours later, Mulvaney changed his tune, whining that the media had "decided to misconstrue" his words as some kind of confession."

"Um, no."

"The wonder of the Trump administration the jaw-dropping, brain-exploding phantasmagoria of it is that it doesn't bury its rottenness under layers of counterfeit virtue or use a honeyed voice to mask the vinegar inside. The rottenness is out in the open. The sourness is right there on the surface for all to see."Get over it," Mulvaney told the assembled journalists. Done with denials of wrongdoing, administration officials are reframing it as right-doing as a president's prerogative, even his entitlement, pre-emptively authorized by voters themselves."

AND THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES... now Turkey is demanding nuclear weapons.

With Turkey in confrontation with its NATO allies, his comments have taken on new meaning.

The country already has the makings of a bomb program uranium deposits and research reactors, as well as a long-delayed reactor under construction. Experts said it would take several years to get to a weapon (unless Mr. Erdogan bought one).

About 50 American nuclear weapons are kept at an air base that belongs to Turkey. If U.S.-Turkish relations deteriorated, access to that base would not be assured.
