Apparently many refugees who originally chose America are now illegally crossing into Canada, sometimes at great risk to their lives.

 

 

From bears? Surely not from Canadians.

From ice and snow, apparently. It is not an easy crossing since they have to avoid populated areas. The Canadians seem to be accepting them with far more generosity than the Americans have.

It's 4 or 5 days out-of-date. Maybe they can't keep up with the pace of his spouting of alternative facts?

I know Trump keeps going on about dishonest media, but it is interesting how differently some media outlets report on Trump. I like to read news from all around the globe, and when all of them are reporting on something Trump has screwed up, then you go to Fox News and either they haven't mentioned it or have put a positive spin on it.

 

I think I'm pretty well informed and do like to looks at sources quoted for news stories, but for some people who rely on only one place for there news, you can see how they can have no idea what is really happening.

When media, foreign leaders, his GOP peers, and nationals all have a similar set of concerns, lots of weight there. That in itself will probe rile him up more, adding more fuel to the fire

From Entertainment Weekly, "Last night on late night"

CNN's Jake Tapper on Conan: Trump 'seems to thrive on chaos'

"I like news. This is exhausting, though," CNN anchor Jake Tapper remarked of Donald Trump’s presidency on Conan Tuesday night. But he suggests this heightened chaos is the product of the POTUS himself.

"The President seems to thrive on chaos," Tapper told Conan O’Brien. "It was like that during the campaign. It obviously worked. And it’s like that now. He also seems to like having different competing groups of power competing against each other and we’d heard about that from his business enterprise that he liked different people competing with each other, bouncing off each other. Obviously, The Apprentice was like that, as well."

Tapper is making a bigger name for himself during the era of President Trump, thanks to his fierce interviews and critical eye — even when it comes to calling out his own network.

"I think we can all agree that we’re not used to this level of confusion and chaos and different messages coming from the White House, the president," he reflected on covering the president. Pointing to Michael Flynn, the national security adviser who lost his post after misleading White House officials over Russia, Tapper said, "We were told that General Flynn was fired, then we were told he resigned, then we were told he was fired. These are all on-the-record statements made by different people in the administration. It’s very confusing."

Sadly, Tapper didn’t offer much hope that the chaos will end anytime soon. "If you’re looking for me to reassure you, I cannot. I cannot be that reassuring. I would like to cover the policies that his voters voted for him to carry out, whether it was having to do with trade or draining the swamp or the border or counter-terrorism… but there is so much else going on beyond that. Tweets about Meryl Streep and this chaos now with his national security adviser being fired four weeks into his term."

One thing with this soap opera, the Press are going to so pissed if Trump gets impeached but the odds on that happening are very very low.
