No, sadly, you can't pin that on Trump. It was originally authorised in 2010.

Trump has water on the brain, claims Americans have to flush the toilet '10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once'

We have a situation where we're looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms where you turn the faucet on -- and in areas where there's tremendous amounts of water, where the water rushes out to sea because you could never handle it, and you don't get any water

You turn on the faucet and you don't get any water. They take a shower and water comes dripping out. Just dripping out, very quietly dripping out

People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once.

They end up using more water. So (the) EPA is looking at that very strongly at my suggestion

Trump said, though he did not give details on what suggestions, if any, he made.

BTW: YouTube - how to find the latest clips about Trump (or anything).

 

In the search box, type Trump Dec 11, 2019, or impeachment 12-11-19, or similar.

 

Just don't use today's NZ date, we're a day ahead of the US.

The only flushing methods of which Trump would have certain knowledge, are his own. I'm sure the EPA would be happy to give him a toilet brush.

The Washington Post - The truth is finally out. The FBI fulfilled its mission.  (extracts)

 

By James Comey 

 

Dec. 10, 2019

 

James Comey is a former director of the FBI and a former deputy attorney general.

 

 

For two years, the president of the United States and his followers have loudly declared that the FBI acted unlawfully in conducting a counterintelligence investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

 

They repeatedly told the American people that the FBI had done all sorts of bad things, such as tapping Donald Trump’s wires during the campaign, opening an investigation without adequate cause, with the intent to damage Trump, and inserting secret informants into the Trump campaign.

 

President Trump said the FBI’s actions were “treason.” The current attorney general even slimed his own organization by supporting Trump’s claims, asserting there had been “spying” on the campaign.

 

Crimes had been committed, the Trump crowd said, and a whole bunch of former FBI leaders, including me, were likely going to jail.

 

On Monday, we learned from a report by the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, that the allegation of a criminal conspiracy was nonsense.

 

There was no illegal wiretapping, there were no informants inserted into the campaign, there was no “spying” on the Trump campaign. ...

 


Horowitz’s report found that the investigation was opened and conducted according to the rules, finding no “evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced [the] decision” to start it or how to run it. 

 

Those of us who knew that truth had to remain silent while a torrent of smears and falsehoods flowed from the White House, from some congressional committee chairmen, the attorney general and Fox News personalities. 

 

The FBI’s work was perceived as a threat to the president, and many Republicans apparently believe that all threats to Trump must be destroyed, no matter the cost to the nation. ...

 


Unfortunately, it appears that Barr will continue his practice of deriding the Justice Department when the facts don’t agree with Trump’s fiction. ...

 

As the leader of an institution that is supposed to be devoted to truth, Barr needs to stop acting like a Trump spokesperson. ...

 

The FBI fulfilled its mission - protecting the American people and upholding the U.S. Constitution. Now those who attacked the FBI for two years should admit they were wrong.

Donald Trump and the Articles of Impeachment

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats have unveiled two articles of impeachment against the president. This is going to be a marathon, not a sprint, so no matter how boring these hearings may be, don’t let the GOP yell you to sleep. Stay mad and stay vigilant and stay away from Devin Nunes if you see him on the street. The man is unhinged.

TRUMP NAMED PERSON OF THE YEAR BY POPULAR SOCIOPATH MAGAZINE

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—For the third year in a row, Donald J. Trump has been named Person of the Year by the magazine Popular Sociopath, the publication announced on Thursday.

 

“Once a year, we at Popular Sociopath recognize the person who best epitomizes sociopathic-personality disorder, which manifests in antisocial behavior and a total absence of conscience and concern for others,” Harland Dorrinson, the magazine’s editor, said. “We are delighted to bestow this honor, once again, on Donald J. Trump.”

 

Dorrinson said that Trump bested a daunting roster of competitors for the title, including the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell; the Fox News host Tucker Carlson; and Trump’s own son Donald J. Trump, Jr.

 

When asked if he had reached out to his son since surpassing him for the magazine’s honor, Trump told reporters, “What a stupid question, I don’t care what he thinks. This is all about me.”

Time magazine's annouced "Person of the year", 16 year old woman climate activist Greta Thunberg. Trump's official campaign photoshopped out Greta replacing her head with the President's.

Great joke by Colbert: "That is horrifying,” Colbert said. “But I’m guessing not the first time Trump has forced himself onto a young woman.” As the Late Show audience groaned, the comedian added, “That joke is based on a true story.”

The Washington Post - McConnell’s vow of ‘total coordination’ with White House on Senate impeachment trial angers Democrats

 

Dec. 14, 2019

 

 

Members of the House Judiciary Committee spent barely seven minutes Friday forwarding articles of impeachment for a floor vote next week.

 

But many of the panel’s members already had their minds on the Senate trial ahead - and the man who holds immense sway over how it will proceed: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

 

In a late Thursday interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, McConnell (R-Ky.) all but guaranteed a Trump acquittal, saying there was “zero chance” the president would be removed from office, and promised “total coordination” with the White House and Trump’s defense team.

 

“The case is so darn weak coming over from the House,” he said. “We all know how it’s going to end.

 

Those remarks infuriated House Democrats as they voted to advance the fourth-ever set of presidential impeachment articles toward a Senate trial ...

 

I think it was pretty bad for who is essentially the foreman of the jury to announce the verdict,” said Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), a Judiciary Committee member and potential impeachment manager. “The idea that he is working like that is pretty shameful.”

 

Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.) went further, calling on McConnell to recuse himself from the Senate proceedings based on his Fox News remarks.

 

“He’s working hand in hand with the White House, the president’s attorney, and yet we are supposed to expect him to manage a fair and impartial impeachment inquiry?” she said.

 

“They’ve screamed ‘bias,’ ‘kangaroo court,’ ‘witch hunt’ and everything else. ... When the Senate majority leader stands at the microphone and says I’m basically going to coordinate with the president’s attorney, that scares me.” ...

The Washington Post - McConnell’s awful Hannity interview shows power of Fox News’s disinformation

 

Dec. 14, 2019 at 2:51 a.m. GMT+13

 


It has often been observed that one of President Trump’s biggest allies in the impeachment battle is Fox News - that if Richard Nixon had enjoyed the benefit of such a powerful purveyor of propaganda, he wouldn’t have been driven from office.

 

You could not ask for a clearer indication of this than the interview that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell just gave to Sean Hannity about Trump’s coming trial.

 

The interview showcases how Trump’s propagandists have succeeded in creating a universe that is as hermetically sealed off from this scandal’s widely and firmly established set of facts as one half of a divided cell is from the other.

 

In this universe, it’s simultaneously the case that everything Trump said on his corrupt call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was absolutely fine and that the key elements of Trump’s pressure on Zelensky simply never happened.

 

And in this universe, it’s not just fully understood that Trump’s acquittal is assured in advance and that the trial will be gamed to Trump’s maximum benefit. 

 

It’s also understood that this is how it should be. Indeed, the interview appears designed to reassure audiences of all this. ...

 

Many have sharply criticized McConnell for telegraphing that the trial will be gamed in advance to assure Trump’s acquittal and to make it as politically painless as possible.

 

That’s true, but it’s worse than this.

 

Note that Hannity treated this not just as utterly unremarkable, but as how things ought to be.

 

Its' not. ...

BRITISH LOSE RIGHT TO CLAIM THAT AMERICANS ARE DUMBER

 

LONDON (The Borowitz Report)—Across the United Kingdom on Friday, many Britons were mourning their long-established right to claim that Americans were significantly dumber than they are.

 

Lauding the superiority of their intellect over Americans has long been a favorite pastime of the British, surpassing in popularity such games as cricket, darts, and snooker.

 

But, according to Alistair Dorrinson, a pub owner in North London, British voters have done irreparable damage to the “most enjoyable sport this nation has ever known: namely, treating Americans like idiots.”

 

“When our countrymen cast their votes yesterday, they didn’t realize they were destroying the most precious leisure activity this nation has ever known,” he said.

 

In the face of this startling display of national idiocy, Dorrinson still mustered some of the resilience for which the British people are known. “This is a dark day,” he said. “But I hold out hope that, come November, Americans will re-elect Trump and establish a level of stupidity that will never be surpassed.”
