PostMueller Indicts 12 Russian Nationals for DNC Hack (Tor Guimaraes, USA, 07/15/18 6:36 am)
I have received an interesting email, from which I quote:
"Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers on Friday in the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.
"Trump has long maintained that Russia was not behind the 2016 attacks. But Trump is headed to Russia to meet with Putin on Monday. You can bet that accountability is not on the agenda."
This news made me imagine what Americans would have said or done if one of our past POTUS would be on duty instead of Mr. Trump.
Is anything going to happen to Trump or his presidency. Or is this the new normal?
JE comments: The Trump paranormal? Our previous Teflon President, Ronald Reagan, was positively "Velcroey" in comparison to Mr Trump.

JE commented on 15 July: "Our previous Teflon President, Ronald Reagan, was positively 'Velcroey' in comparison to Mr Trump."
Reagan was the nation's favourite grandfather who could be forgiven, whereas Trump acts as the nation's realtor or second-hand car salesman. Big difference in trust levels and eventual forgiveness.
JE comments: Yes, no one would ever accuse Trump of avuncularity. I wouldn't call him a realtor, more like a guy selling time shares.
