They ARE that ignorant, and they DO believe that.

That said, this is me saying it; and I DO feel utter contempt for Trump supporters.

I hope you're not still holding your breath, gosh!

You have a point. Ordinary hookers have sex with men in return for cash on the barrelhead.

Melania had (has) sex with RICH men in return for shopping sprees, limousine rides, fancy restaurant meals, expensive baubles, and penthouse apartments.

There's probably a more specific word for hookers who do that; it's just not popping into my head at the moment.

Well, it IS hard to believe that Trump has the imagination to conceive of any sex act beyond Missionary-style humping (for two or three minutes, then rolling over onto the dry spot and snoring).

If he does, though, I would expect the sex to include not only piss, but shit and vomit.

The more of that dossier gets verified, the more I think it's probable that event did take place. The Russians are old masters at the honey trap, and Trump is venal enough that having some hookers piss on a mattress the Obamas once slept in is something he'd think was a wonderful idea.

Nice of the article to bother printing a photo of Craig Deare.:rolleyes:
Interesting video in middle of article with Lindsay "Well now honey I do de-clare!" Graham tough-talking about how "2017 is gonna be the year of kicking Russia in the ass".
To his credit, is LG the first (R.) to come out and say basically that Russia interfered with the elections, affecting mainly the democrats? "He[Trump] has yet to say that. I'll say that."
Huh - duuuuude.
heh or maybe he's the next to get speedily reassigned? (or in 2018?)

Trump family trips cost taxpayers $11.3m in one month – almost as much as Obama’s cost in a year

The three Mar-a-Lago trips in Palm Beach cost the federal treasury around $10m, based on figures used in an October government report analysing White House travel.

This includes cash for coast guards to patrol the exposed shoreline.

Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw also says it has cost local taxpayers $360,000 in police overtime for his three weekends in Florida since 20 January.

The Post also revealed it cost $88,320 to put secret service agents up in a hotel while son Eric Trump visited Uruguay to promote a Trump-brand condo tower.

etc. etc. etc.


The 70-year-old leader of the free world repeatedly criticized Mr. Obama for his taxpayer-funded travel during his tenure.

But now that Agent Orange is tarnishing the White House, he's petulantly bleating that the President of the United States is actually never on vacation. Funny how he figured that out when he's the one criticized, ain't it?

So if Trump goes to Mar-A-lago every weekend*, that alone will cost 686 million for four years. Compared to Obama's horrifying 97 million for eight years.

*Yes, there will be times he won't go or he's on official business elsewhere.

Something else I haven't seen mentioned is the amount of time the travel portion takes out of a "workday". Monday and Friday every week.

I'm sorry if this has been mentioned in this or another Trump thread, but yesterday Trump said he wants to make sure the US is "at the top of the pack" in nuclear weapons. I guess what the world needs in these tense times is more nukes. The Ploughshares Fund estimates that Russia has 7000 warheads and the US has 6800. Great Scott! Do you mean to tell me the Russians can destroy 200 more cities than we can? This is unacceptable!

Trump also also said China could solve the national security challenge posed by North Korea "very easily if they want to." I don't know what he has in mind. But I'm guessing that China doesn't really like having an impoverished, batshit insane, nuclear armed dictatorship on its doorstep either and would rather the situation be different. That leads me to conclude that dealing with the DPRK is perhaps more complicated than Trump believes.

"The White House blocked a number of news outlets from covering spokesman Sean Spicer’s question-and-answer session on Friday afternoon.
Spicer decided to hold an off-camera “gaggle” with reporters inside his West Wing office instead of the traditional on-camera briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room.
Among the outlets not permitted to cover the gaggle were news organizations President Trump has singled out for criticism, including CNN.
The New York Times, The Hill, Politico, BuzzFeed, the Daily Mail, BBC, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Daily News were among the other news organizations not permitted to attend.Journalists from several right-leaning outlets were allowed into Spicer’s office, including Breitbart, the Washington Times and One America News Network. "


I don't know about The Hill as a news organization, I saw this on the Google news feed.

Well the news guys kept giving him free advertisement air time during the election, kept giving him a pass for all the crap he said and did, never brought his sordid past to light, and they are still mostly soft peddling and normalizing all his egregious shit, so yeah, fuck them too. They sold their souls for ratings and to make an "exciting horse race" out of the campaign, so again, fuck 'em. They helped make this monster.

It’s highly unusual for White House staff to hand-pick outlets to attend daily, on-the-record briefings with spokespeople, which are typically open for all reporters to attend.
My bold. I had no luck - if anyone can ferret out anything about previous administrations pulling this shit, I'm curious. Certainly never been chancres like Breitbart, the Washington Times and One America News Network in a gaggle before, IIRC.

He is still an antisemitism, a hypocrite, a conspiracy theorist, a bigot, and a liar.

In the link, Trump is quoted:

Quote:

“The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil,” the president said Tuesday.
WTF, Trump, you disgusting pile of discarded desiccated citrus peels? You ran on a platform of hatred and prejudice. You have surrounded yourself with other bigots whose evil is of the same cloth as yours. You disgraced the flag when you were dry-humping it on stage, and now you are embroiled in the most glaring example of how much of a Nazi--today's ultimate example of "hate and prejudice and evil"--you, personally, are: your continuing fight to flagrantly violate the constitution you hypocritically swore to uphold. You gave quite the momentum to the incredibly vile racist CT of birtherism, and when it became too hot for you to handle, instead of manning up and admitting birtherism is cut from whole cloth (care to guess what cloth?), you announced that you would no longer respond to questions about it and your support of it. And you got a pass on that from the very media you now villify! You have no concept of truth, justice, and the American way.

Show some actual concern for the United States of America and resign now. Then you, Bannon, and Duke can don your favorite headgear without screwing the country further. Hey, Black History Month isn't over yet. If you hurry, you can buy some new hoods at a white sale. You won't even have to j-----well, you know, don't you?

So much for states' rights, eh Donald?

Quote:

Washington (CNN) -- The White House said Thursday it expects law enforcement agents to enforce federal marijuana laws when they come into conflict with states where recreational use of the drug is permitted.


"I do believe you will see greater enforcement of it," White House press secretary Sean Spicer said regarding federal drug laws, which still list marijuana as an illegal substance.


That's a reversal from the Obama administration's stance, which laid out in an official memo that the federal government wouldn't interfere in states where nonmedical use of marijuana is allowed.
