The dude has apologised for his road rage and racism:

Abc6: "To Charles Lovett and the community, I apologize for my use of the n word towards Charles Lovett on Tuesday, July 24th. I understand that using the n-word was not only hurtful towards Lovett as an individual, but hurtful towards the Black community at large. Using the word was dehumanizing, unacceptable, and inexcusable. My actions reflect an unhealthy mindset I have developed and I need to work to change. I have served the Black community for the last 9 years, installing furnaces and water heaters with pride. My actions that day are not a reflection of my feelings towards the Black community. I also understand that racial tensions in America are higher than before, and I regret my part in contributing to that tension. I realize that words are hollow without action, and because of the hurt I have caused, I hope I have the opportunity to give back to the Black community that I have harmed in a meaningful way."

Hopefully that means he genuinely realises what a total idiot he became and that he was wrong about everything he said now.

Lock him up!

That is a good first step. No doubt he made it because of the damage to his business but it should still be acknowledged and he should be allowed to make good. Generosity will win the black community a lot more than vengeance in a situation like this.

HAHAHA.. You'e sh***ing me right? This is a guy who followed someone home, from an interstate off-ramp, for cutting him off, and still said what he did when he KNEW he was being filmed... 

 

You think *deep down inside*  he's now seen the error of his ways and why it's so bad to call someone that??? 

 

 

 

I have a bridge I can sell you. It's in brooklyn..It's a few years old now but still works...

 

 

 

 

 

If anything he's pacing his house, with guns, hoping no "n-words" come calling... And will be for days. Along with all his redneck mates.

Anderson Cooper of CNN: "It's been nearly 48 hours since it became clear that the president lied about his knowledge of his deal to buy the silence of a former Playboy model who alleges a 10 month long affair with Donald Trump.

Nearly 48 hours and no one, no one at the White House including the president himself owned up to the lie.

His silence is deafening.

CNN has new reports that the president is feeling the heat.

One of his officials telling us, and I'm quoting here, 'lt's getting closer and closer to his inner circle. How do you think he feels?'"

At a speech in Kansas City to the VFW annual convention on Tuesday, President Donald Trump -- amid one of his trademark anti-media rants -- said this (emphasis mine):

"Stick with us. Don't believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news. ... What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening."

Juncker used ‘brightly coloured, simple flashcards’ to explain trade to Trump during meeting

 

 

Juncker used ‘brightly coloured, simple flashcards’ to explain trade to Trump during meeting.

 

The pair met at the White House earlier this week for trade negotiations and Mr Juncker used cards with simple language and easy-to-understand explanations, according to a senior EU official who was at the meeting and spoke to the Wall Street Journal.

A wise man wouldn't sling insults at his his partner in crime and hired grave digger, but luckily Trump is not a wise man



It's not obvious in this video, but President Spanky boasted about US economy, but ran to the relative safety of the White House, refusing to take any questions.

The New Yorker - Trump Family Flees to Moscow

 

By Andy Borowitz July 27, 2018

 

(quoted in full because of pay wall)

 

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) - Bringing a tumultuous chapter of American history to an abrupt conclusion, Donald J. Trump and three of his adult children fled to Moscow in the early hours of Friday morning.

 

Accompanied by Ivanka, Eric, and Don, Jr., Trump boarded a specially chartered Aeroflot plane to take him to his new home in Moscow, a nondescript apartment building that also houses the former N.S.A. employee Edward Snowden.

 

Trump reportedly was in a tremendous hurry to catch the plane and left behind only a one-sentence note, reading, “THERE WAS NO COLUSION [sic].”

 

At the White House, Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that the Trump family had fled to Moscow, telling reporters, “The Trump family has not fled to Moscow.”

 

The arrangements for the Trumps’ exit were finalized last week in the one-on-one conversation between Trump and Vladimir Putin, in Helsinki, a translator who was present during the conversation has confirmed.

 

According to the translator, Trump told Putin, “We’ll move to Moscow as soon as Ivanka winds down her crappy company.”

 

Those who witnessed Trump’s departure indicated that his wife, Melania, did not board the Aeroflot plane with him, but saw him off at the airport with a cordial “Be best.”

 

 

(satire alert)

Winston Peters has come up with a new conspiracy theory. On Q&A tonight he suggested that it would be physically impossible for Trump to tweet as much as he does at the times he does. In other words, there must be at least one other phantom tweeter! Who would have thought it?

A phantom tweeter! I think I may have seen him: the gassy troll. He once wrote a tweet so awful I watched some commie librul's head damn near explode they way he flinched. Sort of back, and to the left.

But, later, Sean Spicer was asked whether all the tweets were the idiot's and he said yes.

There are definitely some tweets on that account that aren't from Trump.  Trump used to use an android phone, some tweets were made from an iPhone - that made it pretty easy - and also to identify by "style" whether the tweet was from Trump - or someone rather more literate.

 

There's possible reason for the madness too.  When Trump tweets something unconstitutional that should probably (in a normal world) lead to impeachment, he can pretend someone else tweeted it.

CNN - Trump threatens shutdown over wall, immigration

 

By Eli Watkins, CNN

 

Donald has another tantrum:

 



 

"Trump's Twitter threat introduced a fresh wild card for congressional negotiators to deal with as the remaining legislative days tick down before government funding runs out - an explosive prospect for both parties with just 100 days until the midterm elections."

Do it, Don. Shut it all down. Obama would've been too weak to get his way with merely all three arms of government already under his party's complete control. You be a real man, and show him who's boss.
