Trump made an impromptu call in to Fox and Friends, where he proceeded to rant for an uncomfortable amount of time. Even the hosts were cringing and hoping he would end the call. He covered all of the greatest hits, Stormy Daniels, Comey Memos, Cohen etc. You know you have messed up hard over breakfast when the prosecutors don't even wait until lunch time to quote you in court filings.

All seems to be going ok from here. US in disarray. NZ and others seeking trade opportunities with UK and EU, China and SK fixing NK and the SEA area. The world appears to be getting on ok at the moment.

CNN - The 53 most stunning lines from Donald Trump's 'Fox & Friends' interview [today]

 

... President Donald Trump called into his favorite show on his favorite network: "Fox & Friends" on Fox News Channel.
... I went through the transcript and picked out the 53 most memorable lines. They're below.

 

SELECTED EXTRACTS

 

ON FIRING COMEY:

 

 

17. "I did a great thing for the American people by firing him."

 

18. "So the special counsel - and by the way, and Intelligence Committee and everybody else has found no collusion. There's no collusion with me and the Russians."

 

19. "You can ask President Putin about that. There's been nobody."

 

20. "So there's no collusion whatsoever."

 

21. "Those memos were about me and they're phony memos. He didn't write those memos accurately. He put a lot of phony stuff."

 

22. "He does these memos and then fake news CNN who's a total fake - you know, they give Hillary Clinton the questions to the debate and nobody - can you imagine, by the way, if you gave me the questions to a debate?"

 

23. "He is guilty of crimes and if we had a Justice Department that was doing their job instead of spending $8 million trying to find ..."

 

24. "I've taken the position - and I don't have to take this position and maybe I'll change - that I will not be involved with the Justice Department. I will wait until this is over."

 

25. "A horrible thing and yet, I've accomplished, with all of this going on, more than any president in the first year in our history."

 

26. "Even the enemies and the haters admit that."

 

27. "We have accomplished more than any president in the first year, by far."

 

28. " I'm very disappointed in my Justice Department but because of the fact that it's going under, and I think you'll understand this, I have decided that I won't be involved. I may change my mind at some point because what's going on is a disgrace."

 

29. "That's not the FBI. That's a fix."

 

30. "I have many, many - just so you understand, I have many attorneys. I have attorneys - sadly, I have so many attorneys you wouldn't even believe it."

 

31. "(Michael Cohen) represents me - like with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal he represented me."

 

32. "But I'm not involved and I'm not involved - and I've been told I'm not involved."

 

 


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

 

49. "I would give myself an A+."

RESEARCHERS IDENTIFY GENE FOR AWFULNESS

 

LEEDS (The Borowitz Report)—In a finding that has wide-ranging implications for society, British researchers at the University of Leeds announced on Saturday that they have identified the gene for awfulness.

 

The study, which focused on one adult male and three of his adult children, makes a persuasive argument that there is a “powerful dominant gene” that makes people heinous.

 

“When we began our research, we wanted to find an adult male with pronounced characteristics of horribleness,” Alistair Dorrinson, the scientist who led the study, said. “In studying three of his adult offspring, we found that they were all carriers of the gene that makes one smug, tone-deaf, and oblivious to the fate of others.”

 

Additionally, certain sub-traits of awfulness, such as an inability to tell the truth, appear to be genetically mediated, Dorrinson said.

 

“If the father is unable to explain honestly why a meeting took place, for example, the son who carries the same gene will also tell crazy lies about that meeting,” he said.

 

Hopes that the gene for horribleness might eventually become diluted as its carriers mate with the general population were dashed when the scientists studied the mating history of the adult daughter in the sample group.

 

“Unfortunately, those who carry the gene for awfulness are more likely to reproduce with other carriers of the same gene,” the scientist said.

If it is, I hope its after NZ and other countries move trade away from the US. Whether its Trump or not, the US needs to dropped a few pegs

Fox & Friends Hurriedly Shuts Down Interview as Trump Rants About Mueller

 

EXTRACTS:

 

 

In what is surely a first for a news network, the hosts of Donald Trump’s favorite variety show, Fox & Friends, hurriedly ended an interview with the president Thursday morning as Trump began ranting about Robert Mueller and threatening to seize control of the Justice Department.

 

“You look at the corruption at the top of the F.B.I. - it’s a disgrace ... And our Justice Department - which I try and stay away from, but at some point I won’t - our Justice Department should be looking at that kind of stuff, not the nonsense of collusion with Russia.”

 

Trump’s burning anger could come at the expense of his current legal-defense strategy.

 

By impugning the F.B.I. and threatening to intervene at the Justice Department, Trump may have just given his adversaries more legal ammunition.

 

He may also have undermined his case in more roundabout ways: he referred to his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen as having done a “tiny, tiny little fraction of my legal work” - an apparent attempt to distance himself from Cohen, who he admitted represented him in “this crazy Stormy Daniels deal.”

 

Michael Avenatti, Daniels’s lawyer, immediately called the admission a “gift from the heavens” and “hugely damaging”: not only did Trump’s statement suggest he was aware that Cohen had paid hush money to Daniels, it also undercut Cohen’s argument that his communications with Trump, recently seized by the F.B.I., are protected by attorney-client privilege.

 

... One wonders how Trump’s own lawyers, who joined Cohen’s argument last week, are feeling about their client pouring napalm on their defense.

 

 

Political suicide.  frown

 

I would recommend reading the full article.

I agree 100% - read the full article.

 

And many thanks, Mauricio. The clip about Trump's ranting on Fox and Friends is an incredible watch. I never expected to see such dedicated Trump Trolls as those three visibly discomfited by their Dear Leader's ravings.

Trump threatens opponents of USA's World Cup bid

 

US President Donald Trump has used Twitter to issue a thinly veiled threat to opponents of his country's joint bid, with Mexico and Canada, to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

 

 

More gunboat diplomacy from President Spanky - he's really excelling himself today.  smile
