Another nutty tweet from Spanky, so who are the "many of their members" being defended?? Maybe he thinks OPEC are in the EU

The OPEC members are Islamic Republic of Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Qatar, Indonesia, Libya, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Nigeria, Ecuador, Angola, Equatorial Guinea and Congo.
Yeah, but to be fair, defending, invading, what's the difference?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Almost Friday, did I ever post that phrase before?

Quote:
The owner of a Chinese factory said it has been hired to make flags for President Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign.

Li Jiang owns a flag-making company in China’s Zhejiang province that reportedly made flags for the campaigns of both Trump and his opponent, Hillary Clinton, in 2016.

Quote:
The man who helped co-author President Trump’s bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” tore into the president for his recent tweet bragging about his writing skills.

“He is incapable of reading a book, much less writing one,” Tony Schwartz tweeted on Wednesday.

Quote:
Tony Schwartz@tonyschwartz

Trump's tweet that he has "written" bestselling books is one more deceit & delusion. He is incapable of reading a book, much less writing one.

Schwartz is doubling down. I recall him tweeting three years ago that Trump hadn't written The Art of the Deal (Schwartz wrote it, of course), he'd just read it. Now he's saying that Trump didn't even read it!

Donald J. Trump‏@realDonaldTrump

I never pushed the Republicans in the House to vote for the Immigration Bill, either GOODLATTE 1 or 2, because it could never have gotten enough Democrats as long as there is the 60 vote threshold. I released many prior to the vote knowing we need more Republicans to win in Nov.
And today

Congress - FIX OUR INSANE IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW!
Trump has succeeded in making the Congressmen (and women) run around like mindless rats in a maze.
I am sure he is having a good time but to no purpose or strategy?

Exactly how his tweets will help the GOP in the mid term elections is a mystery to me

I would have been happy had he faced some sort of sanction, otherwise it sends a message you can do what you like, keep your nose in the trough then resign and all sins are forgiven.

"Drain the swamp" what a joke, and they still believe him.

Is Pruitt on crack? His resignation letter is truly bizarre, full of hope that he has "blessed" Trump and with multiple references to God's providence. Apart from that, it's the most sycophantic pile of crud I've read in a long time.

"sycophantic pile of crud" I assume he hopes that this will protect him from rightful retribution?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I am happy to see Pruitt gone, although the fact that he can walk away without consequences for such egregious corruption is disheartening.

More disheartening, though, is that Andrew Wheeler, a former coal industry lobbyist and climate science skeptic, will replace him. Wheeler will do so much more to gut the EPA.
