The White House, Pennsylvania Avenue 1600, is about 1km away from Trump's Hotel at Pennsylvania Avenue 1100.

Yet he's too stingy to offer anything better than fast food.
Turns out it was not fast food but hamberders

He's better than Jesus. He's turned the 300 hamburgers he claimed before into 1000!

Chris Christie accuses Jared Kushner of political 'hit job' in explosive new book. Ex-New Jersey governor, who had prosecuted Kushner’s father, was sacked as head of Trump’s transition team

“Steve Bannon … made clear to me that one person and one person only was responsible for the faceless execution that Steve was now attempting to carry out," Christie wrote. "Jared Kushner, still apparently seething over events that had occurred a decade ago."

Meanwhile last word goes to Burger King

due to a large order placed yesterday, we're all out of hamberders.

You order some hamburgers and make a typo on twitter, and nobody talks about the shutdown anymore. Coincidence?

Except the hamburgers were necessary due to the shutdown and consequent lack of White House services.

Quote:
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) who backed Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign and was in the president's transition team, is slamming associates of President Trump in his new memoir.

Christie writes that Trump has a "revolving door of deeply flawed individuals — amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and unconvicted felons" surrounding him in his book "Let Me Finish," He says the people were "hustled into jobs they were never suited for, sometimes seemingly without so much as a background check via Google or Wikipedia."
Source

Now the rumour Christie declined the job as Trump's chief of staff starts to make sense

#RealFakeNews

Someone has printed and distributed Fake editions of Washington Post that falsely claim Trump steps down; the date of May 1, 2019 gives the game away

Trump will meet with an aide? That is a big step down!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

In the latest episode of "Trump admin hard on Russia" GOP vote to lift sanctions on Putins pal Oleg Deripaska, ha, that'll larn 'em.

The most convincing argument I've seen for Spanky not being a Russian asset is that the Russians wouldn't move so fast at making him jump through hoops.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Why didn't Trump and the Republicans agree to fund the Wall while they controlled both Senate and House or Representatives?

The bill needs 60 votes in the Senate to pass, and under Trump the Republicans never had that majority.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

This guy makes my head spin!
Quote:
President Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said Wednesday that he "never said there was no collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia, claiming only that Trump himself was not involved in collusion.
Source

Interesting he said "only that Trump himself was not involved in collusion" without mentioning Trump's family?

Every major allegation against Trump has followed the same path, first vigorous denials and vicious personal attacks on the accusers then later the truth slowly and painfully step by step starts to emerge!

That's Jared getting sold down the river then. Shame Chris Christie isn't in a position to prosecute him.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

And on the Corruption front
Quote:
The General Services Administration improperly "ignored the Constitution" when deciding to maintain the lease of the Old Post Office Building to the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC after Donald Trump was elected to the White House, according to an inspector general report released Wednesday.

Though the report concluded that GSA's decision-making process involved "serious shortcomings," it recommended only that the GSA conduct a legal review of the language in its future contracts.

So just wind and much ado about nothing!

I think he had no intention of ever building it, it was always a sop to the mugs. Then when the dems took the house he still gets to not build it but now he gets to blame the dems. That was all going well until he got played by conservative talking heads saying nasty things about him.

I'm guessing the next move is "Yeah well it's not like he was colluding directly with Putin"
