Well make sure you use your other arm, to match it up with all the usual flogging.

Only the good stuff, though, eh? Not like the recent airstrike / gas attack on Syria which he's tried to pin on Obama?

"On his watch" when it suits him, more like.
I hope he stays out of the ME as much as possible - he better not go all gung ho in Syria.

Cui bono?

welt.de says that, according to UK intelligence, the Sarin used in the 2013 can't have been of Syrian origin, which had Obama not strike on Syriah even though cruise missiles attacks had already been prepared for. Note that welt.de is a conservative news outlet.

Incidentally, this time again everybody immediately jumps to the conclusion that this is Assad's doing. But why then are the White Helmets not wearing protective gear when handling the alleged victims? Why would Assad use chemical weapons when he's getting stronger already?

Cui bono?

I don't know why you quoted my link. I was merely responding to kk's request for Trump not to intervene.
I actually agree with you, I don't what Assad would have to gain from this attack, apart from the fact his army are not very nice people and probably enjoy this, but not a smart move tactically and politically.

Doing his bit to cut the budget and keep people in jobs.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39497447

David Nunes steps down from Russian investigation - as he himself is being investigated.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39515098

Let's just investigate the whole White House staff and Congress and get it over in one hit shall we?

Good that Nunes has stepped down.

He is between a rock and a hard place.

First he said he had seen classified documents that somehow supported allegations of surveillance of Trump team.

Now he says he did not release classified information so is he lying now or was he lying earlier when he quoted from these documents?

It should be the FBI investigating him, not the House ethics committee

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Hubby suggested all those businesses suffering from not being able to operate normally while Trump's in town should claim compensation from him. Sounds like a very good idea to me.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Good luck with that.

He's POTUS.

The law is that the states pay for his visits.
AFAIK.

AFAIK, he also won Florida ;-)

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Bet they're wishing they hadn't voted for him now.

Anyway, he has an "official" residence at Camp David which is sitting idle and costing the taxpayer money as well. He should be made to use that, however "rustic" he finds it. Not use his private residence for Presidential business.

But strangely Palm Beach County went for Hillary Clinton, and the disruption now swirling around Mar-a-Lago most weekends might not help win over locals.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

And don't forget the conflict of interest side of things.

"Then there is the ethical muddle. Mar-a-Lago is a minefield on the scrambled map of Mr Trump's conflicts of interest - a private club of nearly 500 members where the president hosts foreign dignitaries and mingles with executives, billionaire traders, and real estate developers, all of whom have paid $200,000 up front to the Trump Organization to get in the door.

The sign-on fee doubled from $100,000 shortly after Mr Trump took office, when proximity to the president of the United States was added to the list of amenities, alongside the tennis courts and spa.

"It's pay-to-play, people are paying for access to the president," said Richard Painter, former chief White House ethics lawyer under George W Bush.


"And now he's going down there nearly every weekend, at great expense to the taxpayer, making money by selling off memberships, and members clearly have an opportunity to mingle with White House staff and maybe the president himself."

Sounds like he should be investigated by the ethics committee asap. If this isn't profiteering from being President I don't know what is.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Hold onto your hats, the 'nuclear option' is in effect. And Trump is considering his action against Syria. N.B. He has yet to appoint many positions, which means some are doing many jobs.

More Court action

What sort of clown poses for photos with a confidential document in his hand?
Wasn't there another such incident not too long ago? Could have been in the context of Brexit, not sure.

Yeah! Anyone who still sees the positive in Trump and backs up his claims with reliable sources is trolling!
Rubbish. It's not what you say but how. Our little PM exchange clearly shows that your only intent is to rile.

Yeah I remember. You were offended so you gave me red blobbies and told me to stop insulting people.
I then explained that I didn't really think it was that offensive and that got you even more riled and you said as soon as you could you would give some more red blobbies. Still waiting
