But that sort of thing only happens once in a thousand years... or so we have been told. Except that it happened at least three times in the last 70. And I am not even counting all the weapons the Americans lost. (The Russians probably as well, but we never heard about it...)
Four. You may not know about Lucens with its partial core meltdown.

er no.

it's just showing that in both cases there is a lot of faked shock and anger at a revelation that actually in the bigger picture of things doesn't really matter.

To be clear: I could not care less how many hookers and or porn stars he is shagging. I do however care that he has a lawyer which funnels campaign money into some slush fund to shut them up. Because it seemed to be the most normal way to deal with the issue for the two. It begs the question who else the two have bribed and what for.

I remember the Republicans saying exactly that during the Clinton debacle.

It mattered so little that they tried to impeach him.

Actually the House DID impeach him. The Senate didn't remove him from office, though.

Trump hasn't lied under oath (yet) but even if he did, I don't think the Rs would impeach him, much less remove him from office.

Trump beats promise to cut new refugees, down 66% from Obama

The Trump administration beat the president’s goal of trimming new refugee admissions from the 100,000 brought in by former President Obama, slashing the population by 66 percent.

In fact, for the first time, the U.S. resettled fewer refugees than the rest of the world, but still more than another other country.

I thought you had made some garbled typo but, no, the whole article seems to have been written by someone using a forehead/fist combo...

What on earth is the point they are trying to make? None of it makes sense...

The logic here seems to be, If Spanky is bad then Clinton must be good, however Clinton had an affair therefore Clinton is bad, therefore Spanky is good.


Genius.
That’s just logic you’ve made up in your head.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

is anyone watching Spanky at Blenheim Palace? I'm not sure if they are just being crap or trolling him, Macron gives him a military parade to stoke his ego, the UK gives him an Oompah band, I've never been prouder, this is hilarious, it could only be better if it was a mariachi band playing the star wars theme.

Hmmm, I don't know. There are alot of "classic" conservatives there who don't like Trump all that much and would prefer to see Pence in office.

<<Ms Daniels was arrested for allegedly letting a customer touch her on stage "in a non sexual manner">>
Now that is totally inappropriate for a porn-star, right?

If this is a set up it won't change a thing for Trump - but of course Trump has his own logic ....
"setup" seems to be the right description!

Three undercover detectives? Seriously?! Almost sounds like Trump personally organized that, it's so stupid!

And that is what US-detectives do on tax-money?

Another day in paradise

Quote:
The Trump administration on Thursday said all eligible children under 5 years old who were separated from their parents at a U.S. border crossing have been reunited, two days after a court-mandated deadline.

Meanwhile according to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) who are actually handling the reuniting; only 57 children out of 103 in HHS custody were reunified with their parents.

Problem is we are all used to the multiple lies; it all just passes us by!

More meanwhile!

Trump is denying that the N.Korea negotiation has fallen in a hole by quoting a letter recently received from Kim. Problem is while the letter is very flattering to Trump it contains nothing specific about the negotiation or next steps
Source

Trump says North Korea has returned 200 POW remains
Source
The Pentagon has yet confirm even one POW remains has been returned; North Korea even failed to attend a meeting today about returning soldier remains

At least the rest of the Americans are not afraid to speak up.
Yet.

Kim wrote to Trump in Korean?
How loved would I feel if my friend wrote to me in Amharic?

Then again, as Trump can't read, it doesn't really matter, does it.

Still, I gotta say, I am so grateful that Trump always tells us when something is a good thing.

Some bloke called Colbert made reference to Trump alledgedly being spanked with a copy of Forbes magazine by Stormy Daniels. Hence the new nickname, "Spanky".

Such things work nicely in making opponents feel smug and superior, but do little to address the actual issues. Unless playground taunts really can bring down leaders of countries.
