I regret not ordering one of the real ones from the first summit. That was unintended comedy gold right there.

I give up. He went to Vietnam and walked away. He now allows limited military drills, the SOLE reason is to nag North Korea. A normal person will have had discussions with NK, came to no nuclear agreement, but added goodwill by ending the war. Its all paper stuff, get some goodwill going, so when NK screw you, you are innocent, and can take a stern view of sanctions and so on. Could also have backed down in a small and token way on sanctions.No cost. Win-win, but no, he prefers to get angry at yet another deal failed and bite the bull's ankle

The Guardian - Trump blames Cohen testimony for collapse of summit with Kim Jong-un

 

 

Clever and pathetic at the same time - Trump did not fail - it was all Cohen's fault.   😕

 

Attack, deny, deflect, lie ...  repeat ...

 

I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that the Trump Base is stupid enough to believe absolutely anything that their Fearless Leader says.

The first time was because of a government shutdown... The excuse didn't make sense because unless it was an official state reception, the dinner would have been paid out of his pocket. Seeing the "hamberders" didn't go well he wouldn't want to serve different food to another team, least admit his previous "dinner" was a fiasco.

 

But hey, conservatives said they finally would have "class" back in the White House - what they probably really meant was they wouldn't have a black president at the White House.

The spread is for the football team North Dakota Bisons.

Which reminds me, why does the US have North and South Dakota?

It has a combined population of 1.6 million versus California 40 million.

So it means North and South Dakota get 4 senator, versus California's 2.

Put differently, the Dakotas get a senator for every 400,000 people, and California gets a senator for every 19,770,000 people.

I know it's historical, going back to the 13 colonies.

But this, and the electoral college, shows how screwed up representation is in the US.

The New York Times - Senate Has Votes to Overturn Trump’s Emergency Declaration

 

March 4, 2019

 


The Senate is poised to rebuke President Trump’s national emergency declaration at the southwestern border.

 

The only question: how big the Senate margin will be.

 

With Senator Rand Paul’s decision to support a resolution to block President Trump’s emergency declaration, Congress appears ready to deliver a stern rebuke to the president over his border wall and a clear statement that it will defend its ability to control federal spending.

 

Senator Paul, a libertarian-minded Kentuckian, said he will join fellow Republican Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Thom Tillis of North Carolina, giving proponents of the resolution of disapproval the 51 votes they need, if Democrats remain united in their support.

 

On Monday, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, confirmed that the measure has the votes to pass the Senate. ...

Damn... Bought 200 of these coins, because I thought his trip would result in some good. I might put these on Offers/Wanted now.

🤣

 

 

I've always thought that Trump had blundered by publicly insulting Kim. Asians have long memories when it comes to losing face.

 

So when Rocket Man finally gets around to the hit, those coins should triple in value.

The New York Times - America the Cowardly Bully

 

What the world has learned from Trump’s trade war.

 

March 4, 2019

 


Trump’s trade belligerence has done lasting damage to America’s reputation, and hence to a global economy that depends on American leadership.

 

The whole world now knows two things about us.

 

First, we’re not reliable - an agreement with the U.S. is really just a suggestion, because you never know when the president will invent some excuse for breaking it.

 

Second, we’re easily rolled - The president may talk tough on trade, but in classic bully fashion, he runs away if confronted. ...

Trump's Historically Long, Epically Weird Speech

John Oliver Gives Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump a Scathing Reality Check

Oliver reamed the would-be political power couple on Last Week Tonight—especially Trump, who seems to have some trouble understanding nepotism.

By Laura Bradley

There’s nothing quite like a classic John Oliver rant—and on Sunday night, the Last Week Tonight host delivered. In a scathing opening monologue, Oliver addressed the would-be political power couple that is Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. Donald Trump allegedly ordered top-secret security clearance for his son-in-law, though Ivanka has said that her father had nothing to do with her husband’s security clearance. Oliver couldn’t resist mercilessly lampooning that claim, but only after he’d laid into her father and husband first.

The president’s alleged order to grant top-secret security clearance to Kushner—who Oliver joked “will be referred to as ‘Diminutive Nothing Boy 1’ in the Mueller report”—reportedly raised concerns for both former White House chief of staff John Kelly and former White House counsel Don McGahn. In fact, the two reportedly wrote internal memos about their concerns at the time. But Oliver couldn’t imagine why either of the men would have bothered.

“The f*ck is Trump supposed to do with a memo raising concerns?!” the comedian scoffed. “Read it? A memo? With what? His eyes? For what possible reason? So he can know stuff? To what end? So he can do stuff? Why?! So he can get more memos about the stuff he’s doing? Nice try, memos!”

Oliver also detailed a number of concerns regarding Trump’s baby-faced senior adviser-slash-son-in-law, including the fact that several foreign entities have apparently seen him as a target for manipulation. But the most worrying thing about Kushner, according to Oliver, is not his political prowess or lack thereof, but his perfectly taut, glowing skin.

“How the f*ck does he look so well rested?” Oliver said. “This is a guy who’s not just brokering peace in the Middle East; he’s tackling the opioid crisis, and national infrastructure as the head of the Office of American Innovation, while constantly traveling halfway around the world, and doing it all while navigating the psychosexual Stalingrad that is marriage to Donald Trump’s daughter. Where are the bags under his eyes? How is his skin so smooth? It is deeply worrisome how unworried he looks!”
