    Your verbiage implied it was a long standing tradition. Why does Trump's reasoning have to include Obama? Maybe he just wants to be secretive. Maybe he just thinks given the media climate, it's easier to not have to answer silly questions about every visitor. Maybe he thinks since Obama is factually the worst president in US history, doing things the way the good presidents did them, makes more sense.

    I think you are applying too strict of a definition to meltdown.

    No, it is not.

    White House visitors logs were matters of public record until the George W Bush adminstration.

    Bush and company began to hide them after they were embarrassed by the kerfuffle that erupted when a fake "reporter" for a website called Talon News asked Bush a real softball question using Rush Limbaugh talking points.

    The rest of the White House press corp had had it with this guy and started asking who he really was.

    It turned out that this "reporter" had never worked in journalism at all. He had been a bookeeper in a Philadelphia body and fender business, and a gay prostitute. His "credentials" came from having taken an course at the right wing Leadership Institute (which is run by Media Research Center). The Leadership Institute is also home to fake video producer James O'Keefe. What was embarrassing to the White House was that he had appeared on White House visitor logs dozens of times, often late at night.

    After that, they hid the visitor logs. Cheney even went to court to hide his.

    This is an attack on the US, nothing less. It is war.

    "You take care of him, he'll take care of you." :) That's the definition of quid pro quo.

    The Orange Dildo learned that trick from the master, hus master Trump. Vlad said that he is getting His little Trumpushkov a new diamond encrusted dog Collar for Father Frost Day which is the day that the Communists celebrate the giving of presents instead of on Christmas.

    Ok, by what standard IS this a melt down? It doesn't seem like anyone really in this thread agrees this even classifies as a melt down, in any remote way. If there is a Richter scale of melt downs, this is a zero.

    Zero? Come on. At least give it a 2. I mean, he launches a public dispute with the white house chief of staff, goes into a several minute diatribe, and says there are people who work FOR Trump that think they need to protect the country from the president.

    And where does this one rank in your mind?

    Scarramucci sounds kinda insane:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/201...-at-priebus-make-fun-bannon-in-interview.html

    Reince is a f-cking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said during a Wednesday night phone call.

    “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own c-ck,” he said. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the f-cking strength of the president. I’m here to serve the country.”

    It looks as if, in the vulgar little Mooch - yet more toxic Wall Street landfill to dump on the Washington "swamp" - the hysteria-prone narcissist has found himself the perfect "mini-me" (except for his oversized hands, of course.)

    He's right about the leak problem and if you are going to roll heads, it only fair to make it very clear than you mean it:

    FBI Special Counsel Under Investigation for Leaking Classified Information

    The problem with draining a swamp is that there's nothing to uncover by draining it, except deeper swamp.

    FBI General Counsel James A. Baker is under a Department of Justice criminal investigation for leaking classified national security information to the media.

    Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would soon be making an announcement regarding the progress of leak investigations. A DOJ official declined to comment on Circa’s inquiry into Baker but did say, the planned announcement by Sessions is part of the overall "stepped up efforts on leak investigations."

    Baker is the top suspect in an ongoing leak investigation, but Circa has not been able to confirm the details of what national security information or material was allegedly leaked.

    Looks like a leak of an investigation leak, but, in a few days we should see if this holds water.

    The OP links a video, so I assumed the other links were transcripts. The video in no way shows anyone melting down. BUT, now that I read the original thing they they are talking about, the chat with that ****** from the New Yorker, why yes, yes that is a melt down. LOL

    I mistook the video in the OP to be what we are talking about. He is very calm in the video. The actual topic however, now that I read that, I give that about a solid 7.

    I think the Mooch has got the right idea. Trump prolly should have
    sent him to charm school for a couple of sessions before he turned
    him loose.

    Carry on. Kick azz Mooch. 8)

    I would argue that the two are part and parcel of the same mentality.
