Wise guy

Interesting.

He did say that. Stephanopoulos asked why McGahn would lie under oath to Robert Mueller, Trump said “To make himself look like a better lawyer.” He also told Stephanopoulos “You’re being a little wise guy.”

White House replies “Nah”

Jun 13th, 2019 11:02 am | By

Oh good, another official ruling for Trump to flout and mock and disparage:

Talking Points Memo summarizes:

report attached to the statement labels Conway a “repeat offender,” and says that her violations, “if left unpunished, would send a message to all federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act’s restrictions.”

The Hatch Act bans federal employees from engaging in partisan political activity. The Office of Special Counsel is a federal watchdog agency that monitors federal employees.

The OSC report states that “If Ms. Conway were any other federal employee, her multiple violations of the law would almost certainly result

“It’s called oppo research”

Jun 12th, 2019 4:28 pm | By

Trump still doesn’t get it.

In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, the president admitted that he would accept information on a political opponent from a foreign government.

“It’s not an interference, they have information – I think I’d take it,” President Trump said. “If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI – if I thought there was something wrong. But when somebody comes up with oppo research, right, they come up with oppo research, ‘oh let’s call the FBI.’ The FBI doesn’t have enough agents to take care of it. When you go and talk, honestly, to congressman, they all do it, they always have, and that’s the way it is. It’s

He just received a beautiful letter ♥ ♥ ♥

Jun 11th, 2019 5:00 pm | By

We can actually watch him say it. We can watch, and we can hear reporters erupt with questions when he says it, and we can see him make the “shutupImtalking” gesture at them. We can watch him say that he too would murder a brother who was talking to the CIA. We can watch him drivel about what a warm letter Kim sent him. We can watch him exclaim about how much better he’s made everything. We can watch his hair flap jump up and down in the wind.

Trump and Kim have that in common

Jun 11th, 2019 11:44 am | By

Trump totally gets why Kim Jong Un had his brother murdered. He says he would have done the same.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he had received a very warm letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, calling the correspondence “beautiful.”

Trump spoke a day after the Wall Street Journal reported that Kim’s slain half-brother, Kim Jong Nam, was a source for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Kim Jong Nam was killed at the airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2017.

“I did receive a beautiful letter from Kim Jong Un … I appreciated the letter. I saw the information about CIA with respect to his brother, or half-brother. And I will tell him that

Turn right at the obstruction

John Dean is trolling Trump – who has nothing on his schedule today so is free to watch all the tv.

Richard Nixon’s former White House counsel John Dean just began his testimony with a bang.

He first notes that he last appeared before the House judiciary committee on July 11, 1974, at the impeachment inquiry into president Nixon (who resigned in August, 1974).

Dean says: “I hope I can give a little historical perspective on the Mueller report. In many ways it is to Donald Trump what the ‘Watergate road map’ was to Nixon.”

He’s referring to the evidence Congress used to support its impeachment of Nixon, leading ultimately after the whole Watergate scandal, to the downfall of the

A more animated time

Jun 8th, 2019 10:27 am | By

Remember that time Trump went to meet with Obama during the transition period? And came away raving about what a great guy he is and what rapport they had and how much Obama liked him? Now he’s doing it about the queen. He thinks the queen liked him.

Mind you, he hadn’t previously spent years insisting the queen was born in Kenya and shouldn’t even be the queen, so that commonality is missing. But the rest is unpleasantly reminiscent.

The US president, Donald Trump, has boasted about having “automatic chemistry” with the Queen during his state visit to the UK.

Trump, during an interview with Fox News, said people had noticed how well he and the Queen had connected.

Speaking from the cemetery

Jun 6th, 2019 2:02 pm | By

And this is a good look too. This is a very good look. Really very very very good look – the vulgar mob boss squatting in sight of a field full of the graves of soldiers who died in the fight to defeat Nazism, and talking smack about the special counsel and the Speaker of the House. Very dignified, very impressive, very somber, very devoted to the public good. I don’t think.

Sitting next to a visibly uncomfortable taoiseach

Jun 5th, 2019 4:18 pm | By

Oh dear god. At the end he just starts explaining what an election is and what will happen with Brexit and how excellent it will all be, as if anyone had asked him to explain all the things. He is so BIZARRE.

He also explains to Leo Varadkar what a border is and what kind of border there is between Northern Ireland and Ireland. The taoiseach makes a brief attempt to set him straight but Trump just plunges on, talking nonsense as if reading it from The Big Book of Nonsense.

Trump, sitting next to a visibly uncomfortable taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, waded into the Brexit debate minutes after Air Force One touched down at Shannon airport on Wednesday afternoon.

Future generations yadda yadda

Jun 5th, 2019 10:40 am | By

We can watch him saying the unbelievably stupid and ignorant things.

At .40 Morgan asks what Choss said to him about climate change. There’s a pause while Trump struggles to engage his brain, and then he manages to think of the word “future.” Ah yes, that will help – future. It’s about the future. “What he really wants,” Don says ponderously, “and what he really feels warmly about, is…the future.” Pause for deep thought … Read the rest



First, Chuck, what is “climate change”?

Jun 5th, 2019 8:15 am | By

He doesn’t even know what climate change is.

He doesn’t even know that he doesn’t know what climate change is.

He doesn’t know what’s being talked about when he engages in discussions with other people.

He’s lost. He’s in the middle of the ocean on a plastic raft.

He doesn’t even know what climate change is.

Prince Charles spent 75 minutes longer than scheduled trying to convince Donald Trump of the dangers of global heating, but the president still insisted the US was “clean” and blamed other nations for the crisis.

Trump told ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Wednesday he had been due to meet the Prince of Wales for 15 minutes during his state visit, but the

People don’t realize

Jun 4th, 2019 11:26 am | By

One of Trump’s top annoying habits is attributing his own ignorance to everyone else.

When Donald Trump says, “A lot of people don’t know that” – or its rhetorical cousin, “People don’t realize” – he’s generally referring to things many people already know, but which he only recently learned.

They also tend to be things anyone in his job ought to have learned fifty years ago at least. His lifelong ignorance of just about everything is not a good qualification for that job.

There are, however, occasional exceptions. For example, Trump used the phrasing a couple of years ago to reflect philosophically. “People don’t realize, you know, the Civil War, if you think about it, why?” the

He never did

Jun 4th, 2019 7:56 am | By

Dana Milbank says he believes all Trump’s lies, because the alternative is…what it is.

I believe all this and more because the alternative is unthinkable: that our great nation inflicted on the world a president who is, well, a stone cold loser, boorish and ignorant.

Therefore I plan to do as Trump does: live today as if yesterday never happened. But it’s not enough to imagine away this week’s name-calling. To preserve national dignity, Americans must accept that none of the following ever happened:

Trump did not shove the prime minister of Montenegro and he didn’t declare that he “fell in love” with the dictator of North Korea. He didn’t hang up on the Australian prime minister, nor attack

Historians struggled to cite an equivalent threat

Jun 3rd, 2019 5:17 pm | By

Meanwhile Trump is still trying to put the muscle on CNN, as is totally normal for presidents to do.

President Trump took his long-running attacks against CNN to a new level on Monday by suggesting in a series of tweets that a consumer boycott of its parent company, AT&T, could force “big changes” at the news organization.

“I believe that if people stoped [sic] using or subscribing to AT&T, they would be forced to make big changes at CNN, which is dying in the ratings anyway,” Trump tweeted. “It is so unfair with such bad, Fake News!”

The comment, which Trump tweeted in response to seeing CNN coverage while traveling in London during a European tour, fueled criticisms that

If that’s the hand of friendship…

Jun 3rd, 2019 11:38 am | By

No, he’s not offering America’s hand of friendship. Don’t be silly. For one thing the two countries were already friends, before he was elected, before he ran, before he was even born. The relationship has deteriorated since and because he became president. And for another he comes offering nothing, he’s there for his own glory and nothing else.

For another thing … Read the rest



Thoughts in the air

Jun 3rd, 2019 10:28 am | By

A few hours ago, the plane is over London, Trump is getting restless, so he decides this is the time to broadcasts some insults directed at the mayor of London. Perfectly normal behavior, yes? When you’re in the car on your way to a party, you call the hosts to insult them, right? Doesn’t everyone? “Hello, Inglund, I’m on my way! You’re stupid and ugly, I look forward to our frenndship!”
