dejadeadnz: If Trump had any capacity for feeling shame (he doesn’t), the tributes and hardly subtle references to him in the McCain funeral by the various political figures are enough to sting for a lifetime.

This is stings going over Trump's head, with a "woosh" sound

Given Trump's advanced age, he will never learn that he self-inflicts all wounds, and he really needs to STFU

https://www.thestar.com/news/world/2018/08/31/bombshell-leak-to-toronto-star-upends-nafta-talks-in-secret-so-insulting-remarks-trump-says-he-isnt-compromising-at-all-with-canada.html

"Canada and the U.S. were not able to reach a deal by Trump’s informal deadline of Friday. The talks were scheduled to resume on Wednesday.

Trump made his controversial statements in an Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News on Thursday. He said, 'off the record,' that he is not making any compromises at all with Canada — and that he could not say this publicly because 'it’s going to be so insulting they’re not going to be able to make a deal.'

'Here’s the problem. If I say no — the answer’s no. If I say no, then you’re going to put that and it’s going to be so insulting they’re not going to be able to make a deal ... I can’t kill these people,' Trump said of the Canadian government.

In another remark he did not want published, Trump said that any deal with Canada would be 'totally on our terms.' He suggested he was scaring the Canadians into submission by repeatedly threatening to impose tariffs on imports of Canadian-made cars.

'Off the record, Canada’s working their ass off. And every time we have a problem with a point, I just put up a picture of a Chevrolet Impala,' Trump said. The Impala is produced at the General Motors plant in Oshawa, Ont.

Bloomberg agreed to Trump’s request to keep the comments off the record. But the Star, which obtained the quotes from a source, is not bound by any promises Bloomberg made to the president, and it published the quotes after they became part of the critical negotiations."

Makes sense

Guiliani criticising anti corruption moves in Romania, as the populous fights hard to have a working democracy free of corruption. Crazy and immoral

President Trump's Description of What's 'Fake' Is Expanding

 


President Trump was bombarded with negative news cycles last month, so he turned to Twitter, venting frustrations and dismissing an increasingly wide variety of things he doesn't like as "fake" or "phony."

 

Presidential tweets about "fake news" aren't new, but August was unique in the sheer frequency of such presidential declarations on Twitter. ...  [see chart below]

 

The range of things Trump is declaring fake is growing too.

 

Last month he tweeted about "fake books," "the fake dossier," "fake CNN," and he added a new claim – that Google search results are "RIGGED" to mostly show only negative stories about him.

 

He also accused NBC News' Lester Holt of "fudging" the tape of his May 2017 interview conducted shortly after Trump fired FBI director James Comey.

Washington Post - President non grata: Trump often unwelcome and unwilling to perform basic rituals of the office

 

[a long extract because this is behind a paywall]

 

 

Shunned at two funerals and one (royal) wedding so far, President Trump may be well on his way to becoming president non grata. ...

 

Less than two years into his first term, Trump has often come to occupy the role of pariah - both unwelcome and unwilling to perform the basic rituals and ceremonies of the presidency, from public displays of mourning to cultural ceremonies. ...

 

At his recent rallies, Trump has taken to expounding on his lack of acceptance by the “elites,” proclaiming it a badge of pride. And his disdain for what he terms political correctness is similarly applauded by many of his supporters.

 

The thing to realize is that Donald Trump’s base revels in him playing the transgressive jerk,” said Rick Wilson, author of “Everything Trump Touches Dies”

 

Trump can’t abide not being the main focus of adulation.

 

You know what is making Donald Trump the craziest right now is he’s not the center of attention,” Wilson said. “He’s crawling the damn walls because they’re running story after story on John McCain and he hates it because he’s not the center of attention.”

Basically Dan Bongino spouts off on every crack pot right-wing conspiracy out there, but somehow manages to make InfoWar's Alex Jones look intelligent by comparison.

Dan Bongino’s rise from the Infowars swamps to NRATV host and Trump favorite

by Melissa Joskow

"The latest addition to NRATV, the National Rifle Association’s media outlet, is a former tea party candidate who honed his conspiracy theories on the fringe platform Infowars. Now he uses his NRATV show to attack and discredit the investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the election."

Trump is doing a good job cleaning up the swamp, but not as he intended.

I've never seen so many white collar crime cases being pursued.

Good job Trump.

Oooooh. I thought he was trying to say 'buongiorno' but failing to Italian, and also, why would he be saying 'good morning' in Italian? That doesn't make sense... but it's Trump, so you can see why I would have gone down that logical path.
