You know what Trump said (not really), after hiring and firing her four times:

"Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, shame on you again.
Fool me three times, well, shame on you bigly.
Fool me four times, that's the last time.
Fool me five times, who am I kidding? it's still shame on you."

How did Putin's friend know about the security clearance revocation, more than two weeks before it happened?

You're right.

It's a list of 7 of the 9 high ranking people getting their security clearances revoked, which was announced today.

But the Russian twitter was from 3 weeks ago.

Of course Trump will have never heard of this Artem Klyushin guy, never met him.  Has no ties to Russian Oligarchs.  They have nothing on him. It's all okay.

Omarosa's tape collection... LOL

 

Conversation with Lara Trump  - a few days after Omarosa was fired.  Omarosa made outrageous claim that she'd been offered exactly this, she gets called out for that being BS, but oops - she backs it up.

 

 

Manigault Newman says, for instance, that she, as the only African American woman working in the White House, had seen things that upset her and considered that “a profound story that I know the world will want to hear.”

 

“It sounds a little like, obviously, that there are some things you’ve got in the back pocket to pull out,” Lara Trump is heard telling Manigault Newman. “Clearly, if you come on board, like, we can’t have . . .”

 

“Oh God, no,” Manigault Newman responds.

 

“Everything, everybody positive, right?” Trump says.

 

The two go on to discuss salary, with Trump suggesting $15,000 a month would match the $179,000 annual salary Manigault Newman was making in the White House. Trump also makes clear that Manigault Newman would have a lot of flexibility in where she works.

 

 

Omarosa is taunting that she's got more tapes coming.

Boston Globe leads newspapers in coordinated rebuke of Donald Trump for attacks on press

 

 

Hundreds of US newspapers have launched a coordinated defence of press freedom and a rebuke of President Donald Trump for denouncing some media organisations as enemies of the American people.

 

"A central pillar of President Trump's politics is a sustained assault on the free press," said the editorial by the Boston Globe, which coordinated publication among more than 350 newspapers.

 

"The greatness of America is dependent on the role of a free press to speak the truth to the powerful."

 

"To label the press 'the enemy of the people' is as un-American as it is dangerous to the civic compact we have shared for more than two centuries."

 

Each of the newspapers, including some in states Mr Trump won during the 2016 presidential election, ran an editorial, which is usually an unsigned article that reflects the opinion of an editorial board and is separate from the news and other sections in a paper.

Revoke my security clearance, too, Mr President

 

William H. McRaven, a retired Navy admiral, was commander of the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command from 2011 to 2014. He oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL raid in Pakistan that killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. 

 

Retired Navy admiral William H. McRaven called President Trump’s denunciation of the media a threat to democracy in a speech at UT-Austin. (The University of Texas at Austin)

 

 

Dear Mr. President:

 

Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.

 

Therefore, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.

 

Like most Americans, I had hoped that when you became president, you would rise to the occasion and become the leader this great nation needs.

 

A good leader tries to embody the best qualities of his or her organization. A good leader sets the example for others to follow. A good leader always puts the welfare of others before himself or herself.

 

Your leadership, however, has shown little of these qualities. Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.

 

If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken. The criticism will continue until you become the leader we prayed you would be.

"You know, we defeated communist Japan, radical Islamists.

We ask our men and women to go overseas to fight for our country and sacrifice so much for our country so we can be the land of the free, the land of the brave,

We’re the most generous country in all of the world. Yes, we have our faults, but because of this country our world is definitely a better place. We are great.”

President Donald Trump Takes Credit For Canceling Military Parade
Morning Joe, MSNBC

It reminded me of the story of "the fox and the grapes"

Pleasures are dear and difficult to get.
Feasting the eye, fat grapes hung in the arbour,
That the fox could not reach, for all his labour,
And leaving them declared, they're not ripe yet.


Next bunch of sour grapes: "Space Force"
