Currently the longtime associate, good man obscure stranger that just showed up one day Manafort is back in the news because of his apparent attempts at witness tampering. People recall his function and success during the campaign and also his leaving, reportedly on behalf of Jarwanka's "dislike of him and subsequent pressuring". However, so far no one mentions that he apparently left shortly after candidate Trump was briefed by the IC/FBI about their knowledge of the ongoing Russian campaign interference efforts...

Kudos. (On his Twitter: WH cancellation is another sad example of Trump's pathetic juvenile antics & failure to lead. Eagles stand tall to Trump's childish behavior & builds us up, unites us as one! True role models for our kids! So Proud of our team! #FlyEaglesFly :heh:)

If you refuse to stand during the anthem - you do not deserve to be honored by being invited by Trump... ... hardly an honor... :roll:

Funny thing is according to reports none of the Eagles protested by kneeling.

Yes, I saw that... but they did kneel to pray. I`m waiting for Trump to accuse the ball holder for field goals of kneeling in protest. ;)

Not too many of the crisis actors, staffers fans at the WH today knew the identity of the Eagles' Super Bowl quarterback - that wiped the words to those patriotic songs they played right of the host's tongue.


Or was it because one of them took a knee during the national anthem? :lol:

So...lemme get this straight: To punish the players who DID protest, Trump canceled the White House invitation to a team none of whose players protested. Make sense. As much sense as Fox News trying to fob off a picture of Eagles players praying as a picture of them protesting. All perfectly consistent with the new alternative reality we're living in.

He became grumpy wumpy when many of the Eagle players decided they didn’t want to go.

I actually find this rather clever on his part. Dangle patriotism in front of his rabid base to keep them engaged.

I saw on CNN this morning that he considers this a good strategy for midterms.

Goddamn Canadians, burning the White House:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/06/06/politics/war-of-1812-donald-trump-justin-trudeau-tariff/index.html

According to the sources, Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a "national security" issue. In response, Trump quipped to Trudeau, "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?" referring to the War of 1812.


Think they’re so special with their fancy beer and their funny accents....

Uh, no, Trump, that wasn't the Canadians. There were no Canadians, as such, until 1867. There was Canada, of course, but I've never heard that the troops who burned the White House (206 years ago!!) were Canadian. But if we're going to keep those old quarrels alive, maybe Trump should be thinking about the War Hawks, who tried to annex Canada at that time. (One of many attempts made, and there were numerous attempts by the US to invade Canada, far into the nineteenth century.)

Nice find. The quote: ""This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google," Bowling said from the podium. "'Don't just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.' Donald J. Trump." ///// Doesn't really sound like Trump at all. He's never "fought" for anything in his handed to him on a silver platter life. If he isn't given the head of the table from the start.....he goes on to bankrupt some other activity.

Just look.

Right you are. I just thought, since it had been 30 years since the picture with the beard, it was time for something a bit more recent. This one was taken a week ago Sunday.

Seems We the People are running for office - and are running well. And so many women are winning. As if people decided the guys in Congress are tremendously* afraid of a Nancy, and just too easily neutered in general.

It is interesting. The Right feels threatened and goes with throw back bizness man Trump while the Left feels threatened and goes with women and minorities.

..............Ha, ha......I wonder who more crazy than Trump the Pukes could come up with?...........and Pence I fear about fills that bill.

thats what I was thinking...........or at least that it could not help.

thats another BS MEDIA DRIVEN talking point: that somehow the mere meeting with Kim is "giving" him something. There can't be enough "truth"/pragmatism in that to be worth the mention. Although, the whole proposal seems ridiculous from the get/go. NK is not going to give up Nukes, and that is the only reason for Trump to go......so.... what is this?, some kind of master move by Rodman for another endorsement?

I wondered about that also. I was guessing that story won't get around to Kim. But on the other hand, what would prevent it from doing so? Only the fact that Kim's handlers might be afraid to tell him he's been dissed.

Couple of enigmas (enigmata?) in today's Trump news.

First, his amazingly kind words about Muslims are bound to offend his base, so it appears he's getting background stories like this out to placate them. (Still, they are going to be uneasy about the mere fact that he hosted an Iftar dinner.)

Second, his favorite architect has folded his tents and stolen away into the night, just when all those Trump Tower projects were being looked into. Curioser and curioser!

Oh, and then there's...this story about FLOTUS, intended to squelch rumors of abuse. The significant sentence in the story is this:

The Guardian wrote:The first lady did not speak at the meeting.


So "she" tweets in her husband's idiom, and knows better than to open her mouth when her husband calls a press conference. She's there just to be the prop in Trump's propaganda. I call this spousal abuse.

It might be just rumors, but it was said she prefers staying in the background (and silent). But she could easily clear up the lies he spread about the abuse "the MSM heaped on her". She's the one who reads and must have noticed that no one made those claims about her and her absence. From what I witnessed, quite to the contrary. Those who asked where simply concerned about her wellbeing after surgery.

Ah, but sounds like it’s just diplomats. I’m sure Trump will kiss the asses of diplomats where he has Trump properties.

Did the EPA spokesperson mean "You're a piece of trash." or "There's a piece of trash!" or "He's a piece of trash." when speaking to that reporter?

Yeah, no doubt the motive behind the whole thing was to soothe all the ruffled feelings among the 1 billion Muslims of the world. Naturally, that would bring the diplomats to the top.

Very possible scenario. Another possibility is that this preference of hers is related to a pathological fear of public speaking. Many people have it. If only her husband did!
