Good thing that warmonger Hilary didn't win




The author of Dereliction of Duty sure has been a disappointment as one of the supposed grownups in the room.

Are all these Rs retiring before the election so they can keep their campaign contributions? I'm not sure I understand why they would retire than run again unless they really don't want to be in office.

They probably all have their hands in the Russian cookie jar.

They would rather retire than lose.

Trump will be the first person sued for libel. Obama will probably own Trump Tower and Maralago after the law changes.

I've been saying for awhile that Chris Cuomo was being wasted in the morning slot on CNN, so I'm glad they've given him a primetime show. He's going to run out of guests real quick, though, as he absolutely kills them on their BS. No softballs on this show

Trump watched a segment on Fox News and then bitched on twitter about a FISA bill he wants to be passed because he couldn't sift through the propaganda. Then he had to correct his first tweet after someone told him that he is supposed to support the bill.

Also, Trump should be thanking the voters of Alabama and Doug Jones. If Roy Moore wins that election there is no way that plant lands in Alabama.

It would have landed somewhere in the south though, so I guess it doesn't really matter. He shouldn't be taking credit for it, anyway.

Some great presidential quotes from that article:



“We make a good deal on Nafta, and, say, I’m going to take a small percentage of that money and it’s going toward the wall. Guess what? Mexico’s paying.”

“I don’t know what the word permanent means.”

"I know more about wedges than any human being that’s lived.”

Also, this: Trump attacks protections for immigrants from ‘horsefeathers’ countries in Oval Office meeting

President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to two people briefed on the meeting.

“Why are we having all these people from horsefeathers countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti.


Fun game: See if you can guess what word "horsefeathers" is before clicking on the link!

If you're thinking, "hasn't this happened before?", yes, yes it has. More people around to hear it this time; the WH press op. denied it last time.

The race is heated for the title of "Stupidest Person in the Trump Regime."

There is zero doubt that Trump's base will love the "$hithole" comment.

To say nothing that most of them are from $hitholes themselves, but I digress........
