Stormy, the firings, incoherent tweets, special election losses, Mueller closing in, crooked Pruitt, trump must be losing support in the polls...

 

But wait - his weekly approval rating (Gallup) is sitting at 41% - the highest I've seen it for over a year.

 

It's incredible.  He did state prior to the election that he'd be able to shoot someone without losing any voters.  I'll accept his claim that he meant that in jest, but it's possibly one of his rare truthful statements.

 

IMO this doesn't bode well for election 2020, it's possible he could win again, but in the more unlikely event (IMO) that he loses, the 40% or so of the US population who've stood by this moron are going to be outraged - there'll be division like never before.  It's going to be incredibly ugly.

Yeah, his reported support is way higher than he deserves.

 

However, the November mid-terms should see the Dems with increased clout, so Trump's Presidency will get even more difficult, prompting further lunacy from the Creature.

 

Also, by that time, Mueller's investigations should have been completed, or at least advanced to the point where any criminal acts on Trump's part will have been unearthed.

 

And then there's the Stormy Daniels' thing. Plus any other hooker-related landmines.

 

So anything could happen between then and 2020.

 

Of course, this is assuming that, in the next seven months, he isn't forced to resign, or is impeached, imprisoned or assassinated.

Yes. Like many, I thought he will be gone in X time. If anyone then said to me this will happen, i.e. what has happened, and he is still here, I'd be outfitting him with a jacket with one sleeve.... And now you say his support is pretty much there?? OUCH.  

 

Right now, Id have to say he will stay his term. China has its own faults. But they are addressing them but thats not easy. I felt that there will be a time where the world cries enough, but they haven't. But I think they will. Then we have the issue of cold war US and China, and US and Russia, the great pretender to be relevant.  Then there is the EU, South Pacific, Asia, South America, Africa who may just get on with it. It may well be that the T man promotes the new world order, where part gets on and works together and the other lot fight

Eeny meeny miny moe - another trumpist has to go:

 

GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy resigns, but why?

 

Could it be the $1.6 million payment arranged by Cohen to a pregnant "playmate" 

 

Or is that just a convenient way to get him out of the spotlight  for this.

 

"Only the Best People" 

 

Edit:

 

 

“I acknowledge I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate,” he said. “At the end of our relationship, this woman shared with me that she was pregnant. She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this difficult period. We have not spoken since that time.”

AMAZON APOLOGIZES FOR SHIPPING TEN THOUSAND COPIES OF COMEY’S BOOK TO WHITE HOUSE

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it a “regrettable accident,” Amazon apologized on Thursday for shipping ten thousand advance copies of James Comey’s book, “A Higher Loyalty,” to the White House.

 

Cartons of the book arrived early Thursday morning and kept coming throughout the day, until stacks of the book clogged virtually every hallway and office in the building.

 

Reportedly, Donald J. Trump was so incensed by the book situation that he screamed at Mike Pence while the Vice-President was in the middle of praising him, one source said.

 

The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, called any speculation that Trump had ordered Comey’s book “absurd,” adding, “The President does not order reading material.”

 

Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, said that he had “absolutely no idea” how the ten thousand Comey books made their way to the White House, but advised Trump to follow the procedures on the Amazon Web site for returning unwanted merchandise.

 

“You can print up the return labels at home,” he said. “The books should be picked up and out of there in two weeks, three weeks, max.”

 

Bezos said that shipping the ten thousand books back to the company’s warehouse would not be overly costly for Amazon. “We get an amazing deal on postage,” he said.

Terrible rants as usual from Trump, but not much wrong with the spelling & grammar.    I wonder if he is using some app to help him do this?

Yes, a very good app, I'd say. You'll notice it correctly uses only one space following a period.

But DEFCON Warning System, a private intelligence group that has monitored nuclear threats to the US since 1984, has issued a message warning of an upgrade to level 4.

 

Wow, soon they will be running the jet engines on the B52s non-stop, & topping them up as they run, just like the Brits did with the Vulcans in 1962.

It was a limited strike, no Iranian or Russian targets hit from reports.

 

Said they launched twice as many missiles as last time, so that it would make it 118.

 

Air defences took out 13 missiles from reports, looks like Russians have overstated their ability to take out missiles (Russian Air Defences may not have been used), guessing if they're going the other way the Americans wouldn't be able to take out Russian ones either, so Air Defences are for show.

 

 

 

Statement by the Ambassador Antonov on the strikes on Syria:
A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.

 

Don't know what happens next, Russia has called for an emergency meeting of UN security council backed by China and Bolivia.
