Is there any chance that there is anyone else on the planet who has this much power, who is as willfully ignorant and woefully stupid as this idiot? Will the embarrassment ever stop? The only good to come from this is the commentary by pundits.

Loser Donald is against children being born in the ninth month of pregnancy.

What is it going to take for his deluded fans to realize he's lost touch with reality?

To quote the passage:
Quote:
"Right now in a number of states the laws allow a baby to be born from his or her mother's womb in the 9th month. It is wrong. It has to change."
Obviously he meant to say "torn from his or her mother's..." but he apparently has trouble with consonants. That said, it's a malaprop, not a scandal.

That said, Trump as President has been a massive vowel movement from the start...

IMHO as always, YMMV.

That makes sense, but the best thing is now that he's said what he said is he and his sycophants will defend it to the end. Trump simply CANNOT be wrong.

I think you'd have to look back to the inbred monarchs of 18th-century Europe for a close analog.

This. I saw that Raw Story story, and googled it to find the more complete story. Found MANY cites from that ancient tale, and NONE for anything more recent. Raw Story (and perhaps their alter-ego AlterNet) seem to be the only sites carrying it at this late date. What's up with that?

Are there more sites picking up the story currently than just those two from earlier today?

Trump: Giuliani Will Deliver A Report To Barr, Congress On His Findings In
Ukraine

https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/t...ne-latest-trip

Quote:
“He’s going to make a report, I think to the attorney general and to Congress. He says he has a lot of good information. I have not spoken to him about that information yet,” Trump said. “He has not told me what he found, but I think he wants to go before Congress … and also to the attorney general and the Department of Justice. I hear he has found plenty.”....
Tremble in fear, brothers and sisters, pals and gals.

At this point, I'm not confident Giuliani could find Ukraine on a map.

Isn't Rudy Colludy there as a "private citizen"? Does this mean I can travel to, say, Mexico, then send a report to the Attorney General on my findings?

The Kennedy Center Honors dinner for honorees was last night. One of the honorees was Linda Ronstadt, and at one point, Mike Pompeo asked her, "When will I be loved?" And she replied, “Maybe when you stop enabling Donald Trump.”

It appears that twitter is a thing where stuff turns up. Someone tweeted that, and it got enough attention that Raw Story decided it was worth newsing about. They probably should have put a caveat about it being so old. I mean, that would be my policy were I running a news-like site.

I'm sure you could. And I'm sure a normal AG in a normal administration would waste no time in giving it the attention it deserves, if you know what I mean. But in this administration they probably have an entire Assistant AG Division devoted to running down whack-a-doodle conspiracy theories they get in the mail.

This is all so ugly. But I admit I've had a few giggles to think of how Barr is reacting, when he recently went to such trouble to put distance between himself and Rudy Colludey. (WaPo) I'm sure he's thrilled to know Trump is out there making a declaration that Giuliani will soon report to Barr about his latest Ukraine "findings."

Even Barr seems to know there is some shit you can't scrape off your shoes.

Did Trump say that would happen in "two to three week's time"? Because when Trump says that, it means never.

It will happen right after those investigators that Trump hired report back from Hawaii about Obama's birth certificate. He has "people that have been studying Obama's birth certificate and they cannot believe what they're finding"

Any day now.

So when the House, or a future Justice Dept. really does file charges of treason against him, he can say "You heard it from me first!"

The Orange One Tweets:

Quote:
I don’t know what report current Director of the FBI Christopher Wray was reading, but it sure wasn’t the one given to me. With that kind of attitude, he will never be able to fix the FBI, which is badly broken despite having some of the greatest men & women working there!
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/...74382715506690

Really? Did he get a different version from the one everyone else got?


Quote:
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the investigation into the Russia scandal was mostly, but not entirely, good news for the FBI. On the one hand, Horowitz found that the bureau and its leadership acted appropriately in launching its probe, and the FBI’s handling of the matter wasn’t tainted by partisan or political bias.

On the other hand, the inspector general also found bureau officials made mistakes in parts of its application to monitor Carter Page, the controversial Trump campaign adviser with close ties to the Kremlin. It’s sparked new discussion about reforming the process through which law enforcement seeks investigatory authority under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

For his part, FBI Director Christopher Wray appears to have responded to the findings in a constructive way, ordering a series of “corrective steps to address the report’s recommendations.” Wray also did an interview in which he took a degree of pride in the core findings of the Horowitz investigation.

...

In other words, Wray said the opposite of what Donald Trump wanted him to say – a development that did not go unnoticed in the White House.
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-s...ew-stage#break

I suspect Horowitz will not be in his office much longer.

How about ...never??

They are driven by spite, bigotry and hate. As long as he fucks the same people they always wanted to fuck, as long as he is stickin' it to the people they wanted to stick it to, as long as he panders to their supremacist and dominionist fantasies, they will love him... even as he fucks them TOO.

Worse, in my view. He knows better. He uses the levers of power solely to advance his own fucked-up agenda -- which I regard as fundamentalist Catholic.

He saw a massive opportunity with Trump, who is everyone's useful idiot, and took full advantage. He's been on the case for decades. He's a much more serious threat to our institutions and democratic republic than even Trump.

Which is the exact case I've been making against Pence and any number of infinitely more competent and covertly evil opportunists using Trump in a way that furthers their ugly agendas.

I can just imagine the conversation

Andrew Wheeler: So now that climate change has been debunked as a Chinese hoax, we know you guys have a lot of time on your hands, so we've decided that your new job is to figure out why the POTUS toilet isn't working.

EPA scientist: But I've got a doctorate in climate science, I don't know the first thing about toilets, shouldn't you ask a plumber.

Andrew Wheeler: Sorry but the POTUS has assigned all the wihite house plumbers to be in charge of our South East Asian foreign policy. He wants you to make this your top priority. Here's the owners manual for the Duravit 212501TP now get cracking.

-JFK

"People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once. They end up using more water. So EPA is looking at that very strongly, at my suggestion."

EPA scientist: But I've got a doctorate in climate science, I don't know the first thing about toilets, shouldn't you ask a plumber.

Andrew Wheeler: Sorry but the POTUS has assigned all the wihite house plumbers to be in charge of our South East Asian foreign policy. He wants you to make this your top priority. Here's the owners manual for the Duravit 212501TP now get cracking.
My take:
EPA scientist: Mr. President, it's not the toilet, it's your diet of Quarter Pounders.

I wonder who is the groom of the stool?
