After our army took over the airports, it shelled CNN and MSNBC

Amee Vanderpool breaks down all of Trump’s failures yesterday:

What was also interesting was the arrangement of the bleachers at the very front and the placement of the tanks Trump had been going on and on about. In a grand stroke of irony, fences were placed around the Lincoln Memorial and across the Reflecting Pool to kept non-ticket-holders away from the memorial and given the potential for lightning in the forecast, the excessive use of more metal in the pool was a questionable move.

In other words millions in public money were spent to enable Trump to throw a private party at the Lincoln Memorial. People outside the fence couldn’t see anything, including the much-vaunted tanks.

It started to pour

One of Trump’s people told the Navy to hide a warship from Trump when he was in Japan, because…

…because it is named USS John S. McCain.

Not an Onion story. Repeat, not an Onion story.

President Trump on Thursday defended as “well-meaning” a White House official who directed the Navy to obscure the warship USS John S. McCain while Trump was visiting Japan, but he said he had no advance knowledge of the action.

“I don’t know what happened. I was not involved. I would not have done that,” Trump told reporters as he was leaving the White House for Colorado, where he is scheduled to address an Air Force Academy graduation ceremony.

He “would not have done that” … Read the rest

Well, this is what you get when you have a head of state who is

  • lazy
  • stupid
  • undisciplined
  • indifferent

You get a head of state who refuses to read intelligence briefings.

Trump has opted to rely on an oral briefing of select intelligence issues in the Oval Office rather than getting the full written document delivered to review separately each day, according to three people familiar with his briefings.

Reading the traditionally dense intelligence book is not Trump’s preferred “style of learning,” according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

Good joke. “Style of learning” of course means “taste in tv channels.” Learning is not a thing Donald Trump does.

Soon after Trump took office, analysts sought to

The River of Blood just off the 15th tee

Dec 26th, 2017 11:31 am | By

Let’s go back a couple of years, to November 2015.

STERLING, Va. — When Donald J. Trump bought a fixer-upper golf club on Lowes Island here for $13 million in 2009, he poured millions more into reconfiguring its two courses. He angered conservationists by chopping down more than 400 trees to open up views of the Potomac River. And he shocked no one by renaming the club after himself.

But that wasn’t enough. Mr. Trump also upgraded its place in history.

Between the 14th hole and the 15th tee of one of the club’s two courses, Mr. Trump installed a flagpole on a stone pedestal overlooking the Potomac, to which he affixed a plaque purportedly designating “The River of

Q And others. So, Putin, Xi, leader of the Philippines. Do you think you — what do you think — do you think you understand them in a certain way or relate to them in a way that other Presidents haven’t?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I dont know. They had a story today in one of the papers about China. China likes me. China likes me. And I get along with them; I get along with others too.

Maggie Haberman explains what Trump doesn’t understand about the legislative process.

Despite naming a chief of staff who is expected to bring a new sense of discipline to the White House, President Trump resorted to his old Twitter playbook on Saturday, attacking Senate Republicans who he said “look like fools” — even as he demonstrated an uncertain understanding of the legislative process.

In a series of early morning messages, the president criticized the Senate’s filibuster rules, saying they were hampering his agenda.

Trump went to the G7 to learn

May 27th, 2017 9:22 am | By

The BBC on A Trump Abroad, this time at the G7, refusing to reaffirm the Paris accord.

The final communique issued at the G7 summit in Italy said the US “is in the process of reviewing its policies on climate change and on the Paris Agreement and thus is not in a position to join the consensus on these topics”.

However, the other G7 leaders pledged to “reaffirm their strong commitment to swiftly implement the Paris Agreement”.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the discussion on climate change had been “very unsatisfactory”, adding “we have a situation of six against one”.

Mr Trump tweeted: “I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!”

His economic adviser,

Even when Trump tries for once not to be an asshole, he remains an asshole. That’s because he’s so inadequate and empty.

Behold his masterpiece for MLK Day:

Oh yes, all the many wonderful things. So many. Very wonderful. Very very wonderful.

Honor him. Honor him for being great. So great. Very very very great. Very very great man who did many many very very wonderful things.

A couple I skipped yesterday:

That’s a trivial but still telling item – telling because it betrays that he wants us to know that editors come to him now, even big name editors like Anna Wintour. He wants us to be impressed. He’s that needy.

Today in off-the-charts ridiculous in Trump on Twitter:

Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got “swamped” (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for being a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported
