I was going to go with "it's good to see Bezos taking Pecker out", but on reflection, and considering the photos in question, I opted for the more subtle approach.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Normally, as an editor, after such a headline you can drop the mic and safely retire ;-)

But the current administration isn't done yet.

Trump's much heralded unity theme in his State of the Union address turned out to be a demand for the Dems to stand in line behind him!
Hopes of unity destroyed as Spanky returns to his scorched earth approach
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

The Democrats in Congress yesterday were vicious and totally showed their cards for everyone to see. When the Republicans had the Majority they never acted with such hatred and scorn! The Dems are trying to win an election in 2020 that they know they cannot legitimately win!

3:30 PM - 9 Feb 2019
Seems he has abandoned ideas of passing bipartisan legislation and is focusing on 2020 elections.

Incredible how many people within Spanky's orbit have been jailed, found guilty or indicted and likely with more indictments to come.

Reminds me how the former FBI director James Comey likened the president to a mafia boss in his book.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Long read, I can't imagine many Spanky fans will get to the end, what stuck out for me was the Flynn segment, I didn't realis he was so unhinged, he really seems to be a loon.

A low level staffer that I hardly knew named Cliff Sims wrote yet another boring book based on made up stories and fiction. He pretended to be an insider when in fact he was nothing more than a gofer.
He signed a non-disclosure agreement.
He is a mess!

2:45 PM - 29 Jan 2019
In response Cliff Sims released a series of photographs of him together with Spanky.
We have been around this non-disclosure agreement loop before. Basically White House employees are Federal employees not Trump employees so any Federal non-disclosure agreement they sign is about not releasing any Govt. classified information. It is probably not allowed for Federal employees to sign NDA's with clauses protecting Trump, anyway time will tell......
Trump organisation has filed for arbitration against Cliff Sims using an NDA he signed when he was with the Trump campaign.
He has filed a counter law suit presumably claiming the campaign NDA does not cover his later stint as a Federal employee in the White House.

Pass the popcorn....

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Spanky claims 35,000 attended his El Paso rally, leading El Paso fire department to release a statement that the venue had a 6500 capacity and no special permission was given for more. The crowd outside the venue was estimated at 6000.

Spanky made multiple claims about the size of Beto O'Rourkes rally held at the same time ranging from 15 to 300 people. Bloomberg estimates 11000-12000

Honestly these aren't even good lies he's telling, he's lying by orders of magnitude.

Numbers are not really relevant, Trump's campaign bus people in who are paid to wave and shout.

and given preprinted signs to wave, latest is 'Finish the Wall' I presume next will be 'Invisible Wall Finished' but his base will buy it. 'A beautiful powerful wall and we made it invisible so as not to spoil the view, some said it couldn't be done, probably Democrats, not all, but most of them but we did it.'

part of me feels a bit sorry for them, they think they have a hero, but he's just feeding off them.

El Chapo’s reign of terror is over. He‘ll spend the rest of his life in a maximum security prison.
The threat from violent drug cartels is real - we must secure our border
During the trial of El Chapo it became clear that he smuggled the huge quantities of drugs over the border into the US via legal ports of entry.

So using him as a reason to build the wall is fake news.

And Ted Cruz introduces the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act to get wall money from seized assets from El Chapo, pathetic little man desperate for crumbs from Spanky.

I don't agree. If Jesus can feed a crowd with 5 breads and 2 fishes, then Trump can make 35000 attendees out of 6000.

Yes, fishes. Two little fishes and five loaves of bread. I can still sing the song from Bible School.

Grammarly says fishes is the older plural but has fallen out of fashion:

And a fun blog post:

Back to Trump. He doesn't eat fish or fishes, afaik.
