ALL HAIL KING DONALD, OF THE KINGDOM OF DONALDIA!!!!

Perhaps it's time for Americans to reread and hopefully comprehend Mein Kempf.

Politically, the president has certainly taken actions which are in many ways parallel to those of the early Nazi movement. As Evans rightly notes, his propaganda machine would be immediately familiar to Joseph Goebbels’s Nazi office. The recent executive order making administrative law judges political appointees subject to executive power cannot be seen as anything less than an attempt to bring the courts in line with the administration’s political ideology. The Nazis called this “Gleichschaltung,” or coordination, as they sought to co-opt government and private organizations. Even his management style has similarities to Hitler. Like Trump, Hitler was reluctant to surrender too much authority to one subordinate, and so his Cabinet (which he never called) was a den of backbiting and maneuvering underlings seeking the support of Hitler, who was the only one who decided policy. There are similarities with Trump, even if he has not achieved this level of dominance. Let’s again be clear: Trump is not Hitler; Hitler was arguably a far more astute politician with deeply held convictions and the means to turn a fledgling democracy into a totalitarian state, something that should be much more difficult here. Nonetheless, these historical comparisons are not hyperbolic and should at least give us pause.

He will certainly try but judges do the sentencing, not Trump or the DOJ.

It would be funnier than hell if the judge upped the sentence because of Trump's meddling and Barr acting as his toady.

What is not so funny is the DOJ agreeing to intervene in the case. I seem to recall hearing this phrase pertaining to the US as having three coequal branches of government.

He got away with abuse of power even after being impeached for it, so now he's going to abuse it even more.

I think you're right.  He feels even more invincible.

The truth is that even if he were voted guilty of a crime by congress and removed from office, he would be immediately pardoned by Pence, just like Nixon was pardoned by Gerald Ford.  Every POTUS is invincible.  Scary.

Looks like it was all BS.

Colbert got it about right when he said last night the only difference between the US and a banana republic is Trump doesn't eat fruit.

Well I'm not surprised that the **** of radio that the **** in chief decided to award a Medal of Freedom to during his recent SOTU speech is now making public homophobic comments about the gay man who is currently running to become the democratic nominee for POTUS. I looked up just exactly what this medal is awarded for and I fail to see/hear anything even close emanating from either of the first two you know what's. Might as well go ahead and mail a few out from the WH. I'm sure fat Kim, Putin and such deserve one too.

Carlson is out of the running. He dared criticize trump for ordering that assassination thing in Iran a while ago. After all, how could you honor freedom if you don't think Donny should be able to go blow up whoever in the world he doesn't like today?

Limbaugh stomps all over a man simply because he is gay, (which is allowed in the US), but then supports a "man" who admits to grabbing women by the ****, (which is not allowed in the US). I hate to say it this way but perhaps in this case cancer will remove a cancer.

And while I'm at it let's recall: Trump used his phony "bone spurs" to get him out of military service, Limbaugh used an ingrown hair on his butt to get him out of it (qu'elle surprise, he had a pain in his arse). How Apropos!. And then this gay guy took leave from his office as a city mayor to go do military service and spent 7 months in Afghanistan where there was/is a war on. And then Bill Barr wades in to reduce sentencing for Roger Stone. I say we dig a swamp and start it off by throwing in Trump, Stone, and Barr.

I may have to take back some of my comments about Barr now that he is showing he has some balls by essentially telling trump to FO, perhaps sending him a message that there are supposed to be 3 coequal forms of government in the US. Of course trump won't get it.

With BOTH of these idiots it's too little too late.  The times when these comments would have more impact are in the past.

Don't take anything back. He just understood that it would be impossible to have any credibility in the DOJ whatsoever if he was clearly taking orders from Trump's tweets. So he gets permission to criticize them, Trump immediately forgives him for it, and they continue their Banana Republic antics as planned.
