Oh good. Someone is making them. I looked about 10 days ago and couldn't find one. I will investigate and buy them for all my friends.

If there's anyone left who doubts that thump is a narcissist, I submit:
Quote:
“I want to begin today by expressing my condolences to the family of a person I knew well,” Trump said Thursday during a Cabinet meeting. “She worked for me on numerous occasions. She was terrific—Aretha Franklin—on her passing. She brought joy to millions of lives and her extraordinary legacy will thrive and inspire many generations to come.”
....
Source
My bold.

She WORKED for me?? I knew her (like hell!) and she fucking WORKED for me?? THAT'S what he has to say about Aretha Franklin? THAT'S her claim to fame? That's the noteworthy thing about her accomplishments and her life? Maybe he expects it to say on her tombstone, "I proudly worked for <you know> on numerous occasions."

Jesus.

I've been wondering this too, but can't be arsed to click on any of these stories. I'm reading the headlines, and the pic accompanying the story usually has a blonde woman sitting next to Eric Trump, so I assume she's the person married to that shit-for-brains.

What's even more pathetic than Trump's petty and authoritarian act is the response to it from the Party of Treason, i.e., the Republicans in Congress: https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/16/polit...nce/index.html Many supported it and the only one who spoke out against it with any force was Bob Corker.

They are all talking just about Brennan, who is an easy target since he has been very out front and vocal. But what about the other people who are on the "enemies" list? How do they justify that? What has Sally Yates or Susan Rice said in public that would rise to that level?

In the wake of Aretha Franklin's death, I am waiting for President Chump to announce a day of mourning ... NOT.

The wife was watching the news today and told me when he did mention it, his focus was that she had worked for him. She wasn't sure what that was about. The best I can figure is he had hired her for a gig at his place at one time or other.

Here in Aus, Trump's tweets mentioned that she 'had a gift from God'.

My reading between the lines of course, it meant that Aretha didn't EARN her talent..it was 'given' to her.

Shitty whichever way you want to read it really.

Even with the case of Brennan, just imagine how apoplectic these Republicans would have been if Obama had taken away the security clearance of someone who was being very outspoken and critical of him. (And, that is not even an appropriate analogy because I don't think being very critical of Trump is even "partisan". The man is objectively unfit in knowledge and temperament to be President.)

Meh. It's just boilerplate praise for anyone with extraordinary ability, and doesn't require deep parsing.

(And if her talent was earned rather than given, then one would think a lot more people would be putting in the hours that it takes to become a once-in-a-lifetime 18-Grammy-winning artist.)

The first would be useful in making Mueller's case, and the second would be useful in getting the GOP Congress's butts in gear to rein in Trump (assuming the Base reacted vocally enough to being ridiculed by their hero).
The former, possibly but the latter has no chance; his hard Base would simply go through the mental gymnastics quite familiar to them by now to convince themselves that it is Fake News!!!1!! After all, Dear Leader would never do anything to harm or denigrate the common man he loves so much.

Omarosa, you know that lying, not smart, wacky "dog" (yuck I feel dirty now) was, after being fired at the WH, offered a job at the Trump campaign. Because Trump only hires only the best people. It should be funny to watch the right wing talking heads twist this one.

I took it simply as a plug for his evangelical bases, knowing that as long as he mentions god now and then and nominates anti-abortion judges they will ignore the fact that he is the walking embodiment of everything Jesus stood against.

Nah...Trump's an idiot, but the fact he's not been in jail for the last 30 years indicates that he has enough low cunning to keep that shit at arm's length.

Trump as canceled the parade, and is blaming the DC government.

"The local politicians who run Washington, D.C. (poorly) know a windfall when they see it. When asked to give us a price for holding a great celebratory military parade, they wanted a number so ridiculously high that I cancelled it. Never let someone hold you up! I will instead...

....attend the big parade already scheduled at Andrews Air Force Base on a different date, & go to the Paris parade, celebrating the end of the War, on November 11th. Maybe we will do something next year in D.C. when the cost comes WAY DOWN. Now we can buy some more jet fighters!"

Evidently Trump doesn't know the difference between napalm and Agent Orange:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-...h-vietnam-vets

Quote:
Source present at the time tell The Daily Beast that multiple people—including Vietnam War veterans—chimed in to inform the president that the Apocalypse Now set piece he was talking about showcased the U.S. military using napalm, not Agent Orange.

Trump refused to accept that he was mistaken and proceeded to say things like, “no, I think it’s that stuff from that movie.”

He knows it's napalm because Agent Orange is what they use in the tanning booth.

Bolding mine. I'd love it if someone asked him "which war?" he thought was being celebrated. I'd lay odds he has no idea, and would probably guess WWII.

And if you want to be nitpicky, the war actually didn't end until June 28th 1919, when the Germans signed the Treaty of Versailles. The time between November 11th and June 28th was an armistice.

If you want to be extraordinarily nitpicky, the war didn't end until 1921. The United States Senate didn't ratify the general peace treaties so we just continued under the armistice agreement while we negotiated separate peace treaties with Austria, Germany, and Hungary. These were signed in August 1921 and went into effect a few months later; the final one was the treaty ending the war between Hungary and the United States, which went into effect on December 17, 1921.

It comes down to a question of credibility. Who do you think the American people are going to believe? A vindictive has-been reality show star who has a history of mental instability, a well-established pattern of lying, and a clear motive of cashing in on a high-placed government position? Or Omarosa Manigault Newman?

Unfortunately a disturbing proportion of Americans believe this vindictive has-been reality show star over verifiable FACTS, so believing him over Omarosa is nothing. After all, she's a black woman, that's like double minority Not to mention she's just as cutthroat and untrustworthy as anyone else who was in that White House.

I personally lean more towards believing her than not believing her, same as I felt with Michael Wolfe. Don't particularly like either of them though.

You could dip Steve Bannon in a hogshead of bleach, sandblast every inch of him, laser off the thick dermis of scrofula, warts, wens, tumescent bullae, and hobo dander, then send him to a spa for a week and he'd still look and smell like he slept below an overpass.
That said, the futility of the process would not distract from its entertainment value (of everything up to the "spa" part).

The Washington Post is reporting that the Trump administration is discussing timing the revocation of security clearances so as to distract from other things on bad news days.

The White House has drafted documents revoking the security clearances of current and former officials whom President Trump has demanded be punished for criticizing him or playing a role in the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to senior administration officials.

Trump wants to sign “most if not all” of them, said one senior White House official, who indicated that communications aides, including press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Bill Shine, the newly named deputy chief of staff, have discussed the optimum times to release them as a distraction during unfavorable news cycles.
