Spanky getting very confused; poor old guy!
Now he has admitted Russia helped elect him!!


Yesterday he said "the case is closed" but today a series of tweets and 17 minutes of remarks to reporters at the White House on the topic!

BoyleSports, Ireland’s biggest independent bookmaker, slashed the odds Trumps will be impeached in his first term from 8/1 to 2/1, according to an announcement from the bookmaker today.
Strange, with a GOP Senate majority there is no chance Trump will be impeached!!
With a Democratic majority in the House, there is every chance that Trump could be impeached. The GOP majority in the Senate ensures that there is very little chance that Trump, if impeached, is convicted.

I agree, the Reps are not noted for showing backbone, however, as I'm understanding it the impeachment process in the Senate isn't just a vote, it's a public trial with prosecutors and defence and evidence. It is probably a useful platform to educate GOP supporters on what is actually happening. Something needs done to get these people to open their eyes and see how they are being lied to, look at this from a constituent of Justin Amash.

"Cathy Garnaat, a Republican, who NBC reported was ďsurprised to hear there was anything negative in the Mueller report at all about President Trump.Ē
ďI hadnít heard that before,Ē she told NBC after the Tuesday town hall. ďIíve mainly listened to conservative news and I hadnít heard anything negative about that report and President Trump has been exonerated.Ē"

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump had a new hair style: https://www.20min.ch/ausland/news/story/Trump-10779034


Unfortunately, it seems to be a one-off and he is back to his signature hair style now.

I heard they served English wine at the banquet.

Best way to ensure he won't be coming back in a hurry.

Hard to say, I find it unlikely he'd have any reference point for that.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I think thereís something wonderfully poetic about Jeremy Corbyn boycotting Trumpís visit in part because he believes Trump is a racist whilst his own party is being investigated for racism.

and by refusing to share a stage with him, he is essentially signalling that he isn't prepared to come to power any time soon, as that's what he'll have to do as part of his job.

Exactly this, he had the opportunity to tell Trump what he thinks to his face. Instead he chooses to address Owen Jones and friends in central London. This is why he was a useless backbench MP for 30 years.

It's funny seeing the media screeching about how bad Corbyn is and listing all his unsavoury-ness, whilst orgasmically fawning over Trump without a trace of irony.

Read anything by Piers Morgan or Richard Littlejohn. You'll need a shower in bleach afterwards.

Trump's beloved older brother died of alcoholism. DJT is a teetotaler, himself.

Indeed. When you think about it, that's hugely worrying. Everything he's said has been whilst he's sober.

London part of trip is going really well. The Queen and the entire Royal family have been fantastic. The relationship with the United Kingdom is very strong. Tremendous crowds of well wishers and people that love our Country.
Havenít seen any protests yet, but Iím sure the Fake News will be working hard to find them.
Great love all around. Also, big Trade Deal is possible once U.K. gets rid of the shackles. Already starting to talk!
Some protest examples from the real world, first the Tower of London.

Nice story except it seems Trump refused to meet Corbyn. Guess Trump's ego wouldn't let him meet someone that might disagree with him.

There was some chatter yesterday that the Trump supporters were staging "Look at poor me being attacked by Lefties" scuffles and posting them on the internet but, hey, politics 2019 and all that. It's not about your views it's about being a knobhead for Twitter. Wonder who started all that..?

Fake news. Trump said there weren't any demonstrators.

OTOH I have seen claims that this "victim" was involved in an attack on a Swedish student during a far right demo a few days before and is a known agent provocateur.

The British politicians have made a mess of Brexit but it looks like the British population is not very good in stakeholder management either.
