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.
If there's ever a Zombie invasion, between Trump and Tucker, there's not even enough brains for an afternoon snack.

Trump’s former lawyer criticizes Giuliani for ‘damaging Trump's case immeasurably’

The Post issued a call Friday seeking tips to identify who might have golfed with Trump on 81 of the 111 days he is believed to have hit the links since becoming president.

The comedy continues!

Researchers last year concluded that the net financial benefit of refugees to the United States government was $63 billion over 10 years, because of the taxes they pay and other economic contributions.
However, the 55-page report was quashed out of concerns that it would bolster the case for admitting refugees as the Trump administration prepared to reduce admissions

<<President Trump’s former lawyer on Friday tore into his current attorney, saying Rudy Giuliani is hurting the president’s case against Michael Cohen.>> Strange phrasing by "the Hill" as Cohen - to the public - is the formar lawyer of Trump.
Who cares about a divorce lawyer? (which is why the guy is trying to enter the stage, I guess).

That sounded silly at first but reading the article, the newspaper got a point! Could be very revealing.

Was this the Friday-bit: <<Earlier this month the president crashed a wedding being held at his Bedminster club, and has been known to make surprise drop-ins before.
“If he is on-site for your big day, he will likely stop in & congratulate the happy couple. He may take some photos with you but we ask you and your guests to be respectful of his time & privacy,” a discontinued brochure for his New Jersey club obtained by The New York Times read. >> ?

Which seems to mean: If you don't want your bride groped by the president, don't get married at Mar-A-Lago.

You do need a certain amount of gray matter to be so systematically fair and just.

Switzerland is systematically diplomatic, fair and just. It is a smart system. Anyone abroad rooting for the same system should have respect from us, not be called dumb. Trucker is smart, and he is decent. His views are articulate. He lets people make up their minds and doesn't force feed them dogma. He is balanced, inviting half the time the opponents not only folks who agree. Who does that in liberal media?

The issues are completely identical here and old news. The same issues make people get into rage here and call others racist, identical issues that have been strictly taken care of long time ago, controlled immigration, integration, etc. I find the virtue signalling here hypocritical, but I do appreciate the diversity of views we have here.

The whole Trucker show last night was excellent.

No. I'm ripping him for what he's reading and taking the issue with him reading the autocue as him struggling to read such a melodramatic piece of crap with a straight face

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

All getting very Kafkaesque!

Quote:
President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani said Saturday that he didn’t know Trump’s then-longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen very well when he defended Cohen’s character earlier this year.

Giuliani had called Cohen “an honest, honorable lawyer” during an ABC News interview in May.

Giuliani has quickly changed his tune on Trump’s former fixer, attacking him as a “pathological liar” during a Thursday night appearance on CNN.
Source

So is Giuliani now claiming he now knows Michael Cohen very well so he can now attack him? Did Giuliani have an epiphany or how did he suddenly come to know Cohen better? Or did Giuliani simply change his story because he no longer liked what Cohen was saying?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

So Trump is now providing evidence to support Giuliani's claim that Cohen is a pathological liar by publishing Cohen's claim that "@DonaldJTrumpJr for being open, honest and transparent "

Whose side is Trump on?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
The New York Times said in a statement that White House aides requested that the July 20 meeting with the publisher of the New York Times A.G. Sulzberger be off the record, “which has also been the practice for such meetings in the past” between presidents and Times publishers.

But because Trump “put the meeting on the record” by tweeting about it, Sulzberger “decided to respond to the president’s characterization of their conversation, said he told Trump that his language was “increasingly dangerous” and has referred to the press as the “enemy of the people.
This inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.”
Source

Typical of Trump to ask for an off the record meeting and then not only break the confidence but tweet alternative facts.
