Pence's walkout of the NFL game - a co-ordinated move with DJT, is confirmation that if Trump goes, he's going to be replaced by another petulant childish wаnker.

Not only that but he was in the West, flew to the game (East) just to walk out, then flew back to Los Angeles (West) to continue his trip.

 

Waste of tax payer money. 

 

Also, Trump invented the word "fake":

House passes $4.2 trillion budget, sets up tax cuts for the rich and guts Medicare, Medicaid

 

URL : https://thetrumpimpeachment.com/House-passes-4-2-trillion-budget/

 


With a razor-thin 219-206 margin, House Republicans have passed their FY2018 budget, a $4.2 trillion spending and cuts measure that sets up their tax cut bill to progress through the Senate without being subject to a filibuster, provided they come up with a tax cut bill. This is a non-binding resolution that would set spending—and slashing—priorities for the Congress. Those priorities are a big problem, not just for Democrats but for the health of the nation.

 

The bill not only instructs congress to do massive tax cuts for the rich through the budget reconciliation process, it instructs lawmakers to reduce Medicaid spending by $1 trillion and Medicare by $473 billion. That's along with the $37 billion in cuts for affordable housing, $100 billion for Pell Grants, cutting Head Start by $3 billion, and essentially gutting the WIC program that provides food assistance to 1.25 million women, infants, and children.

 

That's so they can get $1.5 trillion in tax cuts for the rich.

Who watches the CNN, MSNBC, or Fox News US national live feeds?

 

I'm not talking about the moderate international feeds such as those we get through Sky NZ, but rather the US raw live feeds? I'm talking about the banging on, relentless, in your face 24 hour a day, 7 days a week "We love Trump", "We hate Trump" major news outlets that those idiots in the US call mainstream news.

 

Everything, every word almost, is twisted, skewered and taken out of context. Just to try and score political points.

 

Absolutely f***ing sad.

The mainstream media consciously or unconsciously focus on personality politics and "talk up" underdogs - in the hope that there's a "cliffhanger" of  a "horse race", because it's good for ratings - which is good for advertising revenue.

 

"Jacindamania" was an invention of NZ's mainstream media, and it's self-evident that worked.

 

The bias in US media created a monster, from detestable human being to f&^cking moron POTUS, and that's still maintained with popular support for the lying scumbag in the 30-40% range.  Outside the USA - less exposed to the US media - Trump is almost universally considered to be the worst POTUS in history, with an approval rating in single figures.

Hell yeah - and real smart.

 

Donald J Trump:

 

I think it's fake news, but if he (Tillerson) did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests. And I can tell you who is going to win.

 

Mensa:

 

American Mensa would be happy to hold a testing session for President Trump and Secretary Tillerson

"Nothing in 2017 will ever beat this". I don't know about that. Apparently he's off to visit the DMZ shortly. Think of the possibilities: he could insult North Korea in person in some sort of record-setting self-aggrandizing BS speech with actual North Korean soldiers with loaded weapons dotted all around the place. That's where we're going to set the bar for the Trump presidency, right there.

 

I give it about a 1/3 chance of the North Koreans making a Kim-sanctioned attempt to assassinate him, and about 50/50 of him shooting his mouth off to the point where a fanatically loyal NK soldier tries to shoot him because they are so angry about his insults.
