very simple: listen with headphones and put the right speaker on the left ear, and vice versa.

just try it out.

I wonder if we can all chip in with very short 1-2 liners.

So who will come after Trump?
After Trump? There are persistent rumours that Stormy's lawyer Avenatti will stand in 2020; stranger things have happened in the US.

Certainly Avenatti was added to an Iowa event featuring 2020 Presidential candidates

GREAT GDP numbers just released. Will be having a news conference soon!

3:17 PM - 27 Jul 2018
It is certainly a good GDP number for this quarter @ 4.1, stock market futures dropped after this announcement as a better figure was expected; Atlanta Fed forecast 4.8. Some people claim this quarter was helped by people stocking up before tariffs hit, so potentially hitting the next quarter.
We won't talk about Obama's best quarter @ 5.2

Meanwhile
Quote:
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday said he has invited President Trump to Moscow for a meeting.

Putin proving himself smarter than Trump also said "there "has to be necessary conditions" for the meeting to take place".

Putin also played Trump again "he indicated he is open to visiting Washington".

Putin must laugh at Trump's knee jerk reactions to every change in the news stories?

Marton doesn't need to. It's enough that Trump, for once, looks almost intelligent.

It's a white hat. They're normally labelled by someone else. It would be unseemly if he wore a hat with "Mad Donny" scrawled on it.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Judge strikes down law underpinning Sessions' anti-sanctuary city push.

The Justice Department has argued that law should be interpreted broadly to mandate cooperation with federal immigration enforcement.
But citing a recent Supreme Court ruling, Judge Leinenweber did the opposite -- striking down the law itself as unconstitutional.

The Supreme Court found in May that the federal government cannot prohibit states from passing laws.

Quite a stunning decision

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Cohen now alleges that Trump not only knew but approved the meeting. He reportedly said further that he could name other people in the room when Trump was briefed on the meeting and gave his approval.

Source

This leads to the speculation about what would happen if the "other people" were to be questioned under oath by the FBI.
If they do support Cohen's version then where would this leave Donald Trump Jr. who spoke both under oath and to investigators and denied his father knew of this meeting.

Yup, got that, and I was referring to MP3s backwards.

Record the MP3 onto a cassette tape and play it backwards. Or visit any semi-professional recording studio and ask to use their gear.

Or edit the mp3 file and reverse the order of the blocks.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

He is Trump's binome...that's probably a French word? Trump supplies the burlesque and funds, Tucker all the brains.

The entire Tucker's show is always great. Except the game, but whatevs.
