That is a dumb thing to say.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

According to some newspapers the Kenya response was so effective because it was supported by some US Seals and an SAS soldier who were in country training Kenya forces.

Who is unhinged?

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

The Left has become totally unhinged. They no longer care what is Right for our Countrty!
"Countrty"

Kindergarten!!

Quote:
President Trump on Thursday said he is canceling Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) planned international travel in response to her request to postpone the State of the Union address due to the government shutdown.

In a letter to Pelosi, Trump told her a congressional delegation trip she intended to take to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan “has been postponed.”

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
Here is one example of the many Trump tweets on this topic!

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign, one of the most successful in history, is a TOTAL HOAX. .........
1.Aug.2018
Wonder if Trump and Giuliani talk to each other (any more)!

I assume the recent revelations about ex Trump campaign manager Manafort's contacts with an alleged Russian intelligence agent is driving this frantic back pedalling?

Still waiting to hear next steps on Don Trump Jr. alleged lies to Congress and the FBI on the Trump Tower meeting with mysterious Russian lawyer!

This is so funny.

Trump Tells Pelosi Her Trips Are Postponed Due To Shutdown Unless She Flies Commercial

Quote:
Just one day after Speaker Pelosi chose to exercise her right to not invite the President to give his "State of the Union" address, Trump has responded.

It's not that funny. For security reasons, it was not publicized that Pelosi was going to travel to a war zone to visit the troops. Huckabee-Sanders releasing the letter made that information public, which was a bit inappropriate. I agree she needs to stay in Washington right now, but this wasn't the way to go about it.

Pelosi threatening to cancel the State of the Union speech is dumb too, but hardly a security issue.

Trump administration releasing such secure information potentially risking Pelosi's life is another example of the amateur status of the White House today.

Seems Trump snookered himself; he has now had to cancel his WEF Davos trip for the whole delegation!

Every time one thinks the Trump world could not get dafter; Acting attorney general's wife emails a reporter that Special Counsel Mueller investigation is 'wrapping up'.

On the same day Spanky cancelled Pelosi's visit to troops on active service he authorised the same type of plane to take Melania to Florida on no government business.

I think it's difficult once someone has nailed their colours to the mast and defended it deeper and deeper into more and more ridiculous territory to then admit to themselves and others that, perhaps, they were wrong. Especially if everyone else around them is still on the same bandwagon.

I guess the only time it will make an appearance is on the next ballot paper which is nice and anonymous and nobody needs to admit openly they've seen the light.

Perhaps have a read, food for thought.

The article is from August, it's about a book that centers on the idea that for a reportedly fascist mind, corruption is no legal term, it means corrupting the traditional (and god-given) order, corrupting the established hierarchies.

I think one of the consequences of that, if correct (and I think it makes a lot of sense given the Trumpist's reactions), would be that Hillary is corrupt by definition, as is Pelosi, they better go back behind the hearth and leave politics to the men. Same goes for people of color, in the US and abroad. That's also where the wall comes in, it's supposed to stop the flood of brown people from the south who supposedly want to overrun white USA: Good Americans (who of course are white) protect the white women from the non-white males.

Aye, true, but there comes a point where your blind loyalty looks more stupid than acknowledging you backed the wrong horse, it can't be far away surely.

Heart attack definitely on hold!
Quote:
Mueller's office rarely comments on stories related to the special counsel's investigation into potential collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, but issued a statement Friday night broadly denying BuzzFeed's reporting.

8220;BuzzFeed8217;s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel8217;s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen8217;s Congressional testimony are not accurate,8221; special counsel spokesman Peter Carr said in the statement obtained by The Hill.
Source

However the special counsel's statement is quite broad so there may still be some legs to the original story.

Meanwhile here is just one of Trump's 27 tweets yesterday
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Remember it was Buzzfeed that released the totally discredited 8220;Dossier,8221; paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats (as opposition research), on which the entire Russian probe is based! A very sad day for journalism, but a great day for our Country!
He keeps calling it the totally discredited Dossier without providing any relevant evidence. Typical how quickly he changes his tune on Mueller when Mueller publishes something supporting Trump.

Mexico is doing NOTHING to stop the Caravan which is now fully formed and heading to the United States.
We stopped the last two - many are still in Mexico but can’t get through our Wall, but it takes a lot of Border Agents if there is no Wall. Not easy!

3:09 PM - 19 Jan 2019
They can’t get through our Wall, so obviously we need a wall because there is no wall, except for the wall they can’t get through.

This is the leader of the free world distributing this babble!

Basically Trump is offering a temporary change in immigration laws for some classes of immigrants against a permanent change for the Wall; this is a hard sell for a good salesman but very difficult for Trump who is more into bullying than persuasion.
