Trump was upset that New York firefighter union supported Bernie Sanders yesterday.

In a tirade that would make a 12 year old proud, he started retweeting his supporters' tweets, over 60.

A troll knew he would not read the handle "F--- Donald Trump". He did change his profile picture however after Trump retweeted it.

Rikkitic: Those were the days. When white men in suits ran things, blacks and women knew their place, Republicans thought only straight sex existed, everyone in the world drank Coca-Cola, and people didn't think Andy Hardy was a dork. 

 

Sorry, I actually like Mr Smith. It was always one of my favourite films. But the message is that things can actually be made better in Washington and I don't believe that anymore.

 

Those were the days, alright. When you knew that corruption existed, but only in third world countries where people crapped in holes in the ground and wiped their bums with their fingers.

 

Today, corruption is everywhere, and taken for granted. Lying is no longer something that dishonest people do.

 

What's changed? Not us, I'm afraid. We're just as lying, scheming and devious as we ever were, but the brakes are off, now. Anything goes.

 

Without honest leaders, rules, laws and exemplary standards of behavior to follow, we're nowhere.

 

In NZ we have Jacinda, thankfully, and she seems to be a straight arrow.

 

But there may come a time soon when every country has a Trump at the helm.

 

Not a world I want to be in.

The Washington Post - Trump finds in Barr the attorney general - and shield - he long sought

 

May 2 at 8:07 PM

 


For a time, President Trump was reluctant to select William P. Barr as his attorney general.

 

The veteran Justice Department official from the George H.W. Bush administration was not a longtime Trump loyalist, and the president wondered whether one of his own political allies might serve better as a shield ...

 

But Trump was ultimately persuaded - in part because his lawyers and advisers told him Barr was a strong supporter of presidential power and unafraid of taking on critics.

 

This week, the president has been thrilled with his choice, particularly after Barr sparred so vigorously with Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday ...

 


... Critics say that Barr has emerged as the partisan champion Trump always wanted - one willing to defend the president’s most questionable conduct, put a Trumpian spin on the results of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation and mislead Congress along the way. ...

Duh - How long has that 'PREVIEW' button been there?

 

 

It'll be useful for text, but it doesn't seem to apply to images, unless I'm doing something wrong...

The New York Times - Saturday, May 4, 2019

 

An interesting combination of headlines:

 

  • Trump Says He Discussed the ‘Russian Hoax’ in Phone Call With Putin

  • The Economy That Wasn’t Supposed to Happen: Booming Jobs, Low Inflation

  • Job Growth Underscores Economy’s Vigor; Unemployment at Half-Century Low

  • Democrats Try to Revive Talks Over Full Mueller Report as Contempt Vote Looms

I'm beginning to revise my longstanding disbelief in supernatural deities.

 

The Devil is obviously alive and well, which infers that God also exists. He's just not taking any calls right now.

Why Does Trump Say He Doesn't Know Someone When He Clearly Does?

No surprises here, but it is significant that it is from mainstream and bland media "Time" Hopefully it means most middle America realize that Trump lies frequently.

Andrew Napolitano: President Trump Obstructed

Andrew is a frequent analyst for Fox News, was a talk radio show on Fox News Radio, hosted a talk show called Freedom Watch that aired daily on Fox Business Channel.

So you'd expect him to deny Trump's conspiracy with Russia, and support Attorney General Barr. You'd be wrong.

William Barr Pulls A No Show On Congress
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Mentions Stephen Miller, the far-right political activist who serves as a senior advisor for policy for President Donald Trump. A real scum-bag.

Following the example of the President of the United States, I have decided to give him an appropriate nickname. Since he likes to mock the appearance and physical attributes of those he targets, I have chosen for him the eminently suitable nickname of 'Fat bottom'. From now on my profile and avatar will reflect this choice until such time as he is arrested, impeached, or defeated. From this time forth, he will be officially known as Fat bottom Trump!
