Fred99:

 

Stan:

 

You know though despite all this trumps approval rating is similar to Obama's (only a few points off him in his second term) at 43.2% 

 

 

Trump is the only POTUS who's never passed the half-way mark according to Gallup polling:

 

 

 

That's quite interesting. The Bush pair, the WMD fanatics, achieved the best polls. Truman, who knew nothing about anything (good person but a rank amateur who somehow ended up POTUS) also polled high. 

 

Trump, a long and lonely last, even at 43% its an insult to humanity. Clearly many Americans are disillusioned over their way of life, so are still pushing the one that says a lot. Takes more than words though

Colbert: "'Essential Consulting was one of several firms [ATT] engaged in early 2017 [for $200,000 during under a politically sensitive merger] to provide insights into understanding the new administration...'

You paid for insights into this administration?

He's a horny old racist who likes cheeseburgers more than his own children.

$200,000 please."

Unlike KJU, the supreme leader of Iran has a twitter account, and he also seems to have some friends in high enough places to leak documents to him:

 

 

and he has some not very nice things to say about Trump:

 

 'Trump will die and his body will turn into ashes and food for worms'

 

Based on reading some RT articles today, Russia seem to be regretting their investment in the POTUS.  They even have a sense of humour:

 

All Iranians are liars, says Iran-Contra broker Oliver North

 

What a mess.

“Never believe an Iranian,” said NRA's Felonious North, who in the 1980s played a central role in the Iran-Contra scandal. “Because if their lips are moving, they’re lying.” https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/oliver-north-iran-nra-president_us_5af3b903e4b0859d11d0338d?ncid=engmodushpmg00000004 … via @HuffPost

 

The Iranians oughta feel right at home with Trump.





TRexit - Vote him out, drag him out, take him out: either way, he's gotta go.

CNN - Why Donald Trump talked about 'ratings' standing next to 3 recently freed prisoners

 

 

(CNN)  In the very early hours of Thursday morning, President Donald Trump traveled to Andrews Air Force Base in order to personally greet the three American prisoners released by North Korea as they landed back in the United States. ...

 

But even in this most traditional of presidential photo ops/credit takings, Trump found a way to reveal just how different he is than anyone who has held the office before him.

 

As he wrapped up his brief remarks beside the three former prisoners, Trump said this (bolding is mine):

 

"I want to thank you all. It's very early in the morning. I think you probably broke the all time in history television rating for three o'clock in the morning."

 

It is 3 a.m. Trump is standing beside a trio of men who have been held captive in an authoritarian regime for months and, in some cases, years. And he talks about how many people must be watching on TV.

Not sure what followed 'new'. Shill? Mouthpiece? Shady frontman? Accomplished liar? All of the above?

It's hard to imagine that Ollie North was given that job for any reason other than as a "f%^k you" gesture.

 

It's also hard to be surprised by that kind of thing any more.

CNN - It is officially impossible to understand what Trump is saying about Stormy Daniels

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

 

 

(CNN)   What we're seeing at the White House this week is damage control upon damage control upon damage control.

 

And none of it is working.

 

The problem is that ... the best information at the time is so often undercut by the next day's information that it's become impossible to keep up.

"Patrick Little, neo-Nazi Senate candidate, banned from state GOP convention"

The good news is a neo-Nazi was banned from the GOP.

The bad news is he ran a strong second to Sen. Dianne Feinstein in a recent poll.

This is a nice summary

 

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/05/11/politics/donald-trump-foreign-policy/index.html

 

You read the facts, but who cares about facts, whats important is ME, get that on the news.

 

Marketing won the election and surprised him, and Marketing is still to the fore. It works. But, this is reality, when the finishing post comes into view, it will be a list of fails. And a book...
