This is the second time he's misspelled "smoking." His spell checker must be thinking "WTF".

"86 45" is a popular meme. "86" s American English slang for getting rid of something, and "45" is because Trump is President # 45.

I'm thinking it's a one-off. Perhaps he got some of the parts with from "build a bear".

The hair may be from Elsa Frozen wig for teddy bears.

Today I came across this old youtube video - I urge you to watch it.

 

Uh-Oh: Does Donald Trump Know How to Read? (12 mins)

 

David Pakman Show - Feb 2, 2017

 

Pakman concludes that Trump has the reading / language age of a fourth grade child - this could explain a lot of things.

 

(In North America, the fourth grade is the fifth school year of elementary school. Students are usually 9–10 years old, depending on their birthday.)

It's trivial, but I believe you have the age correct, but "fourth grade" is the fourth school year in the US.

"First grade" is the first required entry into the US system. "Pre-school" is common but not required.

I believe the confusion is US "fourth grade" is the equivalent called "year 5" or "standard 3" in NZ

Still, yeah, Trump is an idiot.

JOHN KELLY SUSPECTED OF DEPARTING WHITE HOUSE WITH NUCLEAR CODES HIDDEN IN PANTS

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—An unnamed source in the White House confirmed that the nuclear codes had been missing since Kelly’s departure.

 

Kelly, whose illustrious military career spanned five decades, called his absconding with the nuclear codes “Bollocks.”

 

Speaking to reporters from his home, the angry General added, “Why blame me? There are over four hundred people working in the House and at least half of them have nicked the codes at one time or another.”

 

“Anyway,” he added, “Trump’s not bothered when they go missing—everyone in the family has copies.”

Has anyone considered what will happen after the lump is gone, regardless of how he goes? Any grown-up who succeeds him, whether left or right, up or down, high IQ or barely three digits, will be met with a tsunami of relief, encouragement and uncritical support. Even the silent biding his time Pence will get the benefit of the doubt. Anyone after Trump will seem a paragon of virtue, humility, civility, maturity and good sense. Whether this is a good thing or not I cannot say, but the 46th president should get a pretty easy ride for awhile.

TRUMP SUDDENLY EXPRESSES DEEP CONCERN ABOUT CONDITIONS IN NATION’S PRISONS

 

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a sudden departure from his previous views on incarceration, Donald J. Trump said on Monday that he was “very, very concerned” about conditions in the nation’s prisons.

 

“These are very, very bad places,” Trump told reporters. “These are not places you would want to be.”

 

Trump criticized the “total lack of amenities” in the country’s federal penitentiaries, calling those prisons “a disgrace.”

 

“If you are locked up in one of those places, there is no TV in your cell,” he said. “And good luck getting a Diet Coke. You can yell and yell and no one will go get you one. It’s a very sad, very sick situation.”

 

In addition to blasting the conditions inside the nation’s prisons, Trump also questioned whether “putting someone in jail for one or two felonies serves any purpose.”

 

“I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately,” he said. “Prison solves nothing.”

The Washington Post - Trump has blasted Mueller’s team for political donations. But attorney general nominee William P. Barr has given more than $500,000.

 

 

President Trump has repeatedly derided prosecutors investigating potential coordination between his presidential campaign and Russia as “angry Democrats,” pointing to their past political donations as proof of bias.

 

But William P. Barr, Trump’s nominee to lead the Justice Department and oversee the Russia investigation, would be by far the most prolific political donor to step into the country’s top law enforcement post in at least a quarter-century, according to a Washington Post analysis.

 

Barr has donated more than $567,000 in the past two decades, nearly all to GOP candidates and groups, federal records show.

 

His wife, Christine Barr, gave more than $220,000 over that time ...
