Are you sure?

He deleted all his presidential statement -- I mean tweets -- so his base will now believe him when he tells them he was always behind Moore. 

He's already claiming a win in Alabama. 

Sure, most of us know better, and we understand he lies every time he opens his disgusting piehole. 

But the dopes who support him are too stupid to know better.

I think the Jones act should be waived for the duration of the hurricane recovery efforts especially in Puerto Rico. If a Dutch ship is available in Boston to take food to San Juan, let it.

But that would hurt "business owners" - Chump's own people. He said it!  Nothing more American than making money from tragedy, from people's distress right?

Oh, wait.....it was immediately lifted for mainland states (texas, et al) hurt by the earlier storms - but not apparently (until massive social pressure was applied) for the off-shore brown Americans. Hmmm.

The USA always comes to the aid of other countries during natural disasters. Puerto Rico a U.S.territory will make or break a presidency on how swift and complete the response will be.

The corporate sponsors will influene the GOP more than anything. LL Bean supported Trump -,what off they try to sway voting as did Maine's senator vote against the latest the ACA bill.

How happy do you think Budweiser is about the. contention Trump started in degrading the NFL.

There are many many sponsors that could withdraw support of the GOP in the next few months.

How do you think that lobbyist withdraw because of lack of support.

The President has hijacked the USA and performed with great embarrassment. His house of cards will fold down soon.

Well said, Leland33: "The President has hijacked the USA and performed with great embarrassment."

Maybe we are watching the awkward birth of some sort of nihilistic, dumb-ass third party.

At a military event last night:
‘‘You guys know what this represents?’’ Trump asked. ‘‘Maybe it’s the calm before the storm. Could be the calm, the calm before the storm."
‘‘What storm Mr. President?’’ one reporter shouted. ISIS? North Korea? Iran?

‘‘You’ll find out,’’ the president said.’’

Hey, Trumpistas...chests swelling with pride? Happy that the hand on the Tiller(son) is so level and strong? That reason and decency rules?

(as a well-known fellow countryman of mine said recently, "Why would Donald Trump be upset that [Tillerson] called him a moron? You'd think he'd be grateful for the upgrade.")

And in more news from the delightful Trump-led GOP, this morning - Tim Murphy, the anti-abortion crusader who told his girlfriend it was ok to get an abortion, has decided to resign from Congress.

So, the next time a GOP politician rails about the sanctity of marriage, know for damn sure that they're having an affair.
When they tell you they're against gay rights, know that they're bumming a rent-boy.
As they tell us all that they're pro-life, they're ordering their mistress to terminate the unborn child.
When they're telling you they're good Christians, they're kneeling before Mammon - usually, the NRA.
And most especially - when they tell you they're on your side, be assured that they're angling to stab you in the liver with a rusty steak-knife and then f*ck the wound...

Still Winning, eh?

And today's trifecta of twattery - a glimpse into how badly we are all f*cked under this Administration:


Secretary Ryan Zinke
U.S. Department of the Interior
Washington, DC


Dear Secretary Zinke, I hereby resign my position as Senior Advisor at the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI). The career men and women of DOI serve because they believe in DOI’s mission to protect our nation’s natural and cultural resources and they believe that service to this country is a responsibility and an honor. I’m proud to have served at DOI alongside such devoted public servants, and I share their dedication to the mission and country, so it is with a heavy heart that I am resigning as a senior official at the Department. I have three reasons for my resignation:

Poor Leadership. I blew the whistle on the Trump administration because I believe you unlawfully retaliated against me for disclosing the perilous impacts of climate change upon Alaska Native communities and for working to help get them out of harm’s way. The investigations into my whistle-blower complaints are ongoing and I hope to prevail.
Retaliating against civil servants for raising health and safety concerns is unlawful, but there are many more items to add to your resume of failure: You and President Trump have waged an all-out assault on the civil service by muzzling scientists and policy experts like myself; you conducted an arbitrary and sloppy review of our treasured National Monuments to score political  points; your team has compromised tribal sovereignty by limiting programs meant to serve Indians and Alaska Natives; you are undercutting important work to protect the western sage grouse and its habitat; you eliminated a rule that prevented oil and gas interests from cheating taxpayers on royalty payments; you cancelled the moratorium on a failed coal leasing program that was also shortchanging taxpayers; and you even cancelled a study into the health risks of people living near mountaintop removal coal mines after rescinding a rule that would have  protected their health. You have disrespected the career staff of the Department by questioning their loyalty and you have played fast and loose with government regulations to score points with your political base at the expense of American health and safety.
Secretary Zinke, your agenda profoundly undermines the DOI mission and betrays the American people.

Waste of Taxpayer Dollars. My background is in science, policy, and climate change. You reassigned me to the Office of Natural Resources Revenue. My new colleagues were as surprised as I was by the involuntary reassignment to a job title with no duties in an office that specializes in auditing and dispersing fossil fuel royalty income. They acted in good faith to find a role for me, and I deeply appreciate their efforts. In the end, however, reassigning and training me as an auditor when I have no background in that field will involve an exorbitant amount of time and effort on the part of my colleagues, incur significant taxpayer expense, and create a situation in which these talented specialists are being led by someone without experience in their field. I choose to save them the trouble, save taxpayer dollars, and honor the organization by stepping away to find a role more suited to my skills.
Secretary Zinke, you and your fellow high-flying Cabinet officials have demonstrated over and over that you are willing to waste taxpayer dollars,  but I’m not.

Climate Change Is Real and It’s Dangerous. I have highlighted the Alaska Native communities on the brink in the Arctic, but many other Americans are facing climate impacts head-on. Families in the path of devastating hurricanes, businesses in coastal communities experiencing frequent and severe flooding, fishermen pulling up empty nets due to warming seas, medical professionals working to understand new disease vectors, farming communities hit by floods of  biblical proportions, and owners of forest-lands laid waste by invasive insects. These are just a few of the impacts Americans face.

If the Trump administration continues to try to silence experts in science, health and other fields, many more Americans, and the natural ecosystems upon which they depend, will be put at risk. The solutions and adaptations to these impacts will be complex, but exponentially less difficult and expensive than waiting until tragedy strikes – as we have seen with Houston, Florida, the US Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico – and there is no time to waste. We must act quickly to limit climate change while also preparing for its impacts.

Secretary Zinke: It is well known that you, Deputy Secretary David Bernhardt, and President Trump are shackled to special interests such as oil, gas, and mining. You are unwilling to lead on climate change, and cannot be trusted with our nation’s natural resources. So for those three compelling reasons – poor leadership, waste, and your failures on climate change, I tender my resignation.

The best use of my skills is to join with the majority of Americans who understand what’s at stake, working to find ways to innovate and thrive despite the many hurdles ahead. You have not silenced me; I will continue to be an outspoken advocate for action, and my voice will be part of the American chorus calling for your resignation so that someone loyal to the interests of all Americans, not just special interests, can take your job.

My thoughts and wishes are with the career women and men who remain at DOI. I encourage them to persist when possible, resist when necessary, and speak truth to power so the institution may recover and thrive once this assault on its mission is over.

"Moron" and "Dotard" are among the most commonly researched words over the last few weeks!

The Pope and Donald Trump are on stage in front of a huge crowd.

The Pope leaned towards Trump and said, "Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, like that of your followers, but go deep into their hearts and for the rest of their lives whenever they speak of this day, they will rejoice!"

Trump replied, "I seriously doubt that. With one little wave of your hand? Show me!"

So the Pope slapped him.

I do hope that Tilly would win. That's a very low bar, though; if he is even less intelligent than Trump, then we're even more screwed than I've thought all along.


Mensa has offered to do the evaluation. I hope they take them up on it.

It sounds like Trump is unravelling quickly. His mental illness is evident to all but the most partisan of supporters.

I do hope the few adults left in the White House manage to take his toy football away before he snaps. 

It's only a matter of time. 

Tap.. tap... tap... tap... tap... tap.

Will there ever be a point where serious legislators who care about this country will admit to themselves that we have a POTUS who is mentally ill and must be removed from office before further harm is done.  Can they do it today?

The republicans are trying to get some of their legislation passed before he totally goes bonkers. They know he will sign anything they put in front of them.
