Trump supporters are gullible. Or how Trump failed all his promises.

 

.....................

 

He apparently believes his loyal supporters are the dumbest, most gullible people on earth. We shall see if he’s right.

 

 

The dumbest, most gullible people on earth will all duckquack that it is the fault of the evil treasonous democrats who keep blocking Trump's beautiful policies and if Clinton was just locked up and Obama back in the jungle where he was born everything would be exactly as Ozzie and Harriet remember it.

They give him way too much credit.

"The greatest snollygoster of all time"

 

A favorite of political pundit Bill O'Reilly, snollygoster came into English in the 1800s to refer to a shrewd and unprincipled person, and especially an unprincipled politician.

 

"A snollygoster is one with an unquenchable thirst for office with neither the power to get it nor the ability to fill it."

Okay, here's one for the S.A.S 😚

 

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Former President Barack Obama ignited a firestorm of controversy on Wednesday by demanding to see President Donald Trump’s elementary-school diploma.

 

Speaking to reporters in Washington, Obama called on Trump to prove “once and for all” that he had completed the K-through-five program for 5-10 year-olds.

 

“While the U.S. Constitution doesn’t require the President to have graduated from fifth grade, it would still be nice to know if he’d done it,” Obama said.

 

By insisting on the release of Trump’s diploma, Obama joined a growing movement of so-called ‘schoolers’, who contend that Trump never attended school.

 

Schoolers’ demands to see documentation of Trump’s elementary-school attendance have yet to sway the White House, which has released only a short version of Trump’s second-grade report card, which has the grades completely redacted.

 

Obama revealed that he had hired forensic detectives to study Trump’s utterances and tweets to determine the extent of his verifiable schooling, but, so far, they had found “no proof” of a fifth-grade education.

 

“Donald Trump claims that he attended elementary school,” Obama said. “All I’m asking is, where’s the evidence?”

The Washington Post - Manafort’s ‘mind-boggling’ 47-month sentence prompts debate over judicial system’s ‘blatant inequities’

 

 

and now ...

 

The New York Times - Manafort’s 47 Months: A Sentence That Drew Gasps From Around the Country

 

March 8, 2019

 


WASHINGTON — Judge T.S. Ellis III offered some pointed advice for those who expected him to throw the book at President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, for perpetrating a decade-long, multi-million-dollar fraud scheme.

 

“Go and spend a day in the jail or penitentiary of the federal government,” Judge Ellis said on Thursday night from the bench in the United States District Court in Alexandria, Va. “Spend a week there. He has to spend 47 months.”

 

Judge Ellis dismissed as “vindictive” and “way out of whack” sentencing guidelines that recommended a prison term of 19 to 24 years for Mr. Manafort, 69.

 

But to more than a few legal experts, it was Judge Ellis’s sentence that was out of whack.

 

They cited it as a glaring example of the leniency that wealthy white-collar criminals often receive because they have the money to defend themselves or because judges find it easier to empathize with them. ...

 

... One of the biggest issues remaining for Mr. Manafort is whether he will be allowed to serve out his two sentences simultaneously.

 

Prosecutors have taken no stand on that so far, but indicated in a sentencing memorandum that they might do so after Judge Ellis’s decision.

Two pathological liars contradict each other - could this be a rare example of Trump telling the truth?

 

 

 

 

 

EDIT

 

I have never heard Donald use Big Words like "additionally" before - did he get some help from his grown-ups?

Some rumours Trump traveled to Alabama with a body-double / doppelganger "Melania Trump"

She could have either not cared, or it's a sign of marital strife by all the Stormy Daniels' undeniable proof. (Trump signing a hush-payment check to Cohen on Valentines wasn't the most considerate move)

Maybe her lack of makeup is an external sign of her internal thought process.

"F*ck it. 'Daddy' will die in shame and leave me penniless, and all my friends and family will be in prison. Why should I keep up the facade?"

The photo is from June 2016, six months before Trump's election. Perhaps a little early for Melania to be worrying about her future.

How to Win Friends and Influence People ...   😕

 

The Washington Post - Trump invokes new demand for extracting billions of dollars from U.S. allies

 

March 9 at 1:18 PM

 


In private discussions with his aides, President Trump has devised an eye-popping formula to address one of his long-standing complaints: that allies hosting U.S. forces don’t pay Washington enough money.

 

Under the formula, countries would pay the full cost of stationing American troops on their territory, plus 50 percent more, said U.S. and foreign officials familiar with the idea, which could have allies contributing five times what they provide.

 

Trump calls the formula “cost plus 50,” and it has struck fear in the hearts of U.S. allies who view it as extortionate.

The Washington Post - Russian trolls can be surprisingly subtle, and often fun to read

 

March 8

 


On Sept. 10, 2018, @PoliteMelanie tweeted to her more than 20,000 followers:

 

“Criticizing Trump in a book is just unfair. It’s like criticizing the Amish on television.”

 

The next day, this tweet won the Chicago Tribune’s “Tweet of the Week” contest.

 

What the Tribune’s readers didn’t know when casting their votes, however, was that “Melanie” was a Russian troll. ...

 

PoliteMelanie won the “Tweet of the Week” because Americans found her funny.

 

They spread her messages and followed her account for that same reason.

 

Before Twitter suspended PoliteMelanie’s account, her winning tweet had more than 125,000 retweets and likes - and this wasn’t even her most popular post. ...

I'm pretty sure by June 2016 she already knew what misery she'd signed up for for sure.
