Donald Trump tweets about ‘Crooked H’ & her ‘dealings with Russia’

We’re almost five months into the Baby Fists administration and I’m worried that we’re becoming jaded. It’s not that we’re in danger of normalizing Baby Fists, his actions or his deplorable minions – if anything, as we stand today, Trump is the least popular he’s ever been and people grow more and more tired of his bulls–t by the day. But that’s just it: we’re becoming jaded about just how appalling all of these revelations truly are. It was not surprising to learn that Donald Trump is now being actively investigated for obstruction of justice, and it should have been shocking. It should have been a massive turning point. But it hasn’t been. Because we’ve spent the last five months getting used to it.

In any case, here are some stories about how the walls are closing in on Emperor Bigly, Precious Jared and even Mike Pence. Well, well.

Yeah, Trump is obsessed with the Russia investigation. Like, talking about it was one of his favorite things to do. Politico reports that White House staffers know the sh-t is going to hit the fan because post-inauguration, Trump was obsessed with the Russia investigation and obsessed with trying to make it go away. Per Politico: “Trump, for months, has bristled almost daily about the ongoing probes. He has sometimes, without prompting, injected. ‘I’m not under investigation’ into conversations with associates and allies. He has watched hours of TV coverage every day — sometimes even storing morning news shows on his TiVo to watch in the evening — and complained nonstop.” Politico notes that lately, “Trump now has begun fuming about special counsel Robert Mueller, particularly after Mueller hired several prosecutors and investigators with ties to Democrats. Trump has told associates he might fire Mueller, though they don’t believe he will.”

Precious Jared’s precious business deals. Not only is Robert Mueller probing Trump’s obstruction, Mueller is apparently focusing on Jared Kushner’s business ties to Russia, and his curious meetings with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, “and then with Sergey Gorkov, the head of a state-owned Russian development bank,” all during the transition. You can read more about the Precious Jared stuff here.

Mike Pence’s hands aren’t clean. It was said that Pence is a smooth operator who always kept himself “clean,” knowing that the chances were pretty good that he would end up becoming president at some point. Well, Mr. Clean is lawyering up. According to WaPo, “The vice president’s office said Thursday that Pence has retained Richard Cullen, a Richmond-based lawyer and chairman of McGuireWoods who previously served as a U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia.” Pence has hired his own lawyers, they say, because he wants legal representation while being questioned in the independent counsel’s investigation.

Jeff Sessions lied about something else. The Guardian has a new fascinating story about an American lobbyist who works on behalf of Russian interests, Richard Burt, and how he attended dinners hosted by Jeff Sessions. Burt’s role as a lobbyist for Russia was well-known.

The Trump tweets. Bigly used his baby fingers to tweet about “Crooked H” last night, because of course he did.

This is some next-level McCain sh-t. The Deplorables – led by Trump – truly believe that Hillary Clinton worked with Russia to ensure that she would lose the election, I guess.

Update: He’s still tweeting this morning.

For whatever record, the media (fake or otherwise) doesn’t care about Trump’s tweeting. It’s his own staff and fellow Republicans begging him to stop.

    But look over here! The Most Precious Princess Nagini the Corrupt of the Most Sacred Horcruxed vagina went to the congressional baseball game wearing a white dress to symbolize her purity and showcase her too large for her frame fake boobies and she brought two of her props, er, children – Arabella, whose life has become one photoshoot to distract from grandpa after another & whatshisname, the one we rarely see because he doesn’t know who that blonde is and he won’t pretend he does. Look away from the corruption! Look away from the treason! Look away from the moneylaundering! Look away from that nasty thing grandpa did telling us to stop being mean and unify! Look away from whatever the hell we’re doing with Cuba! Look at Princess Nagini in a tight white dress at a baseball game! Be amazed!

    • DeniseMich says:

      I love that the NYT and WaPo did not make a to do about this Hillary nonsense.

      Trump’s days are numbered… about 2 more years. Unfortunately, our gov’t is a lame duck until he is officially out.

    • DystopianDance says:

      The POTEC (president of the electoral college) will have perpetual ethical halitosis, yet the “Left” is “violent” for cringing??

    • supposedtobeworking says:

      yep. Essentially his supporters are okay with a shady character in the Whitehouse because getting their own agenda through needs to be priority over everything else. They wouldn’t tolerate the sh*t show from Hillary, whose big message was “he’s not fit for office” and I think the base of Bernie supporters would have been okay with him bending the rules, but the Trump voters interviewed on TV continue to say that they don’t care about Russia, or collusion, or business conflicts, as long as he gets their agenda passed. Grrr.

    • Imqrious2 says:

      You know, a fish stinks from the head down…and the rot keeps spreading:

      From an article in the WaPO

      http://www.ifyouonlynews.com/news/pence-lawyered-up-and-his-lawyers-have-deep-russian-ties-image/

      Breaking news: Mike Pence’s attorney’s law firm has 40 lawyers and consultants representing Russian clientele

      • jwoolman says:

        It actually makes sense for Pence to have his own lawyer with him while being questioned. That doesn’t means he’s guilty of anything. A lawyer experienced in such things knows your rights and can explain what the legal documents and proceedings mean. Even a lawyer should have a specialized lawyer for such inquiries.

        Of course, I know that Pence did lie repeatedly during the VP debate and suspect Flynn resigning was about covering for Pence’s lies (I no longer think he was kept entirely out of the loop). The storyline that Flynn deceived Pence is beginning to wear thin as we get more of the timeline.

        Another reason to have a lawyer is that Trump will throw Pence under the bus if Trump decides doing so will save Trump’s hide. So if Trump knows anything dirty about Pence – he is likely to spill it to save himself.

    • maisie says:

      One of the most fun things about this Tr**p takedown is the fury his two oldest idiot sons are feeling now that the “brand” is essentially ruined. I think both of them wanted to run for office, possibly and hilariously in New York (New York, city and state, DESPISES the Tr**p family). But now that dad is finally, definitively being outed as the grifter, cheater, gonif, con-man, colluder and liar he really is, NO ONE will give them an ounce of support or a dime anymore. Can you imagine either of those goons running for office? Or even “whispering” complicit Princess Ivanka? And forget about her non-speaking criminal husband Kushner and his cheesy family. They’ll be so over too,

  2. Beth says:

    I’m not a hateful person, but I HATE Trump so much. When will he grow up and get serious? I’m so embarrassed our president acts like a teenage bully.
    The fucking election ended 7 months ago! Stop blaming Hillary, her emails, and Democrats for everything

    • Esmom says:

      I’m with you. The tweeting about Hillary is beyond pathetic. I also have never despised anyone as much as I do Trump, although his family and other enablers and sycophants are bringing out some pretty hateful feelings in me, too. I can’t believe I ever thought someone of character in the GOP would stand up to this nonsense. They’re all disgusting and complicit.

      • third ginger says:

        I think you can have all kinds of negative feelings because it is not some petty feud. It is the fate of our country!!

      • Megan says:

        My mom and I were just talking about how uncomfortable it is to hate someone so much. Trump brings out the worst in everyone.

      • DystopianDance says:

        I used to say, “the elections are my Super Bowl. I love the elections, blah blah”. I even included my 10 year old in 2016, thinking of it as a teachable civics experience. This however- has gone through potty mouthed campaigns, under the bridge and into the Abyss of Criminal Things. I would never have predicted the POTEC (president of the electoral college) story of sinking us into muddy antics, all excused by the cult of Spinions. IT’s “uncomfortable” to wake up everyday are realize this grade B horror movie of an administration really happened and is STILL HAPPENING.

      • jwoolman says:

        Megan – a useful exercise is to visualize a Donald Trump when he was just a little kid or infant. Harder to hate, which as you say is ultimately self-destructive. Keep laughing at Trump’s lunacy and reserve the hate for his and the Republicans’ awful policies.

    • Nic919 says:

      Cheeto will never change. He is 71 and has been this way all his life. No one is forcing him to change either. Expect the worst behaviour from him because that is all you will get. There is no decency in him.

    • fiorucci says:

      When? No that won’t happen

  3. Raina says:

    He’s looking a little less orange these days. More like a banana. Time to hang it up, Chiquita.

    • Olenna says:

      LOL! Today, a WaPo reader commented, “You all just hate him because he’s orange. Racist pigs!”

      If we don’t laugh, we’ll cry ourselves dry.

      • Kitten says:

        You laugh but there have been think pieces and Reddit threads entirely devoted to this idea: that calling Trump “orange” is racist.

        Then there was this:

        “Trump-supporting former Congressman Jack Kingston said that liberals were hypocritical to attack O’Reilly when they make fun of President Donald Trump’s orange skin color.
        During a debate with former Obama spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki, Kingston questioned why it was okay for liberals to make jokes about Trump being orange, while conservatives are repeatedly called out when they make jokes about a black woman’s hair making her look like James Brown. Trump Supporters
        “What I don’t like is the left always runs and clutches, ‘Oh, I’m a woman, don’t say anything bad about me’ or ‘I belong to a certain race,’” he said. “It seems it is always that card that is played. It is okay to call the President of the United States ‘orange’ and ‘red head,’ and all kinds of derogatory things, and make fun of his wife right and left.”

        Yeeeeahhhhh these people are so very, very misguided.
        http://vibesroll.com/trump-supporters-calling-orange-racist/

      • Olenna says:

        @Kitten, oh, my word. OITNR? How insensitive of me; I’ll try to do better!

      • jwoolman says:

        I don’t mind if people call him orange, although he’s significantly less so most of the time since the election and it’s not as accurate as it used to be.

        However, I do object to the constant smearing of one of my favorite junk foods. Please try to leave Cheetos out of this. They are innocent. And quite tasty.

  4. Svea says:

    Pathetic attempt at deflection. How can he not know how transparent his Cohn tactics are?

  5. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    Number one tell that he is scared is that he keeps deflecting. Liars always try to take the heat off themselves by shoving the light on someone else. I think something has gotten him shook even more than this though since Rosenstein sent out some weird and vague memo recently about anonymous tips coming from foreign partners (this is poor paraphrasing of the memo, I admit.) This is me with my conspiracy tin foil hat on, but I wonder if it has to do with money laundering claims. Mueller hired a woman who has specifically tried cases that had to do with eastern european countries and money laundering schemes.

    I guess Mike Pence took his mother’s advice and hired counsel. Not just any counsel, but the same man who worked on the Iran-Contra scandal, worked for Tom Delay, and Bank of America. Even if he skates by with no charges (which I truly believe he will since he hired this guy), I truly believe that his so called career will be over. Trump’s toxic cheeto gas is going to bring down a lot of people.

    • Esmom says:

      “Trump’s toxic cheeto gas is going to bring down a lot of people.”

      Lol. As it should, though. Anyone greedy, stupid and/or craven enough to get involved with Trump should have known it wouldn’t come without consequences.

      • Aiobhan Targaryen says:

        Like the con people they are, they probably thought that they would not be figured out until after they stole all the money or that they would never win and would take whatever they pilfered after Hilary was elected.

      • Esmom says:

        AT, I think you’re on to something. He/they were clearly never prepared to lead this country. Still aren’t and sadly never will be considering how utterly uninterested Bigly seems to be in doing — and even learning about — the job.

      • Megan says:

        From day one, Trump has misunderstood the protections afforded the president. He thinks he can’t have conflicts of interest, he thinks he can’t be prosecuted, he thinks he can claim executive privilege to hide all of his illegal actions. I have no doubt he, Ivanka, and Jared are using their positions to illegally enrich themselves. I just hope Mueller works fast because as soon as he gets too close, Trump will have him fired.

      • holly hobby says:

        Oragino can try to fire Mueller. As soon as he does all hell will break loose. That’s another obstruction of justice charge right there. Whoever talked to the press about Orangino being the subject of the investigation was brilliant. Now that it’s out in the open, he can’t just fire Mueller without more questions.

    • Charlotte says:

      X100000 to this.

      I agree that Pence is unlikely to do any jail time; we can hope that hiring an attorney is the first step in an Agnew-style plea bargain (resignation in exchange for no jail time). I’m ok with that if a plea bargain requires him to talk. Pence is one I can really see ratting out the others if it saves his hide.

    • supposedtobeworking says:

      I watched a great analysis/reporting on the money laundering theory last night (on MSNBC). It seems very plausible.

    • imqrious2 says:

      Aiobhan Targaryen, see my comment above: Pence hired a firm with BIG ties to Russia. There is just not a functioning brain cell amongst them all.

    • Jack Daniels is my patronus says:

      Unfortunately, I don’t think we are looking at impeachment any time soon. The dems don’t really want to do it, because they are worried that doing so and allowing pence to be a stabilizing force will hurt them in the midterms. And the republicans are a mess.

      I can’t deal with the chaos, frustration, and lunacy of this anymore. Going to go bury my head in the sand somewhere.

  6. grabbyhands says:

    I think a Mueller firing is still on the table.

    Last night Rosenstein issued a statement about how Americans should be wary about “believing leaks and anonymous allegations”. To me that screams “I’m about to suddenly find good cause to fire the man leading the investigation that the president insists he’s already been vindicated of”. This investigation isn’t a done deal by any means.

  7. Honey says:

    Has he tweeted yet about the Democrats kicking the Republicans asses 11-2 at last nights game? He’ll probably say the Democrats cheated

  8. adastraperaspera says:

    I guess that sanctimonious evangelical schmuck Pence isn’t just relying on the power of prayer anymore.

  9. Eric says:

    Emperor Zero is in a shload of trouble over “Rusher,” as he likes to pronounce Russia. Can’t wait for the big finish!

    Why would Pence hire a lawyer who served as US Attorney in the same district (VA) that has convened a grand jury re Flynn? Very interesting Mike!

  10. RBC says:

    This administration will be making work for political scientists, Hollywood writers, producers for decades. Everyday something else comes up.

  11. Beth says:

    I wonder if all these investigations would be going on if he had never sent any tweets. He must know that with every childish tweet he sends, he’s digging himself deeper. There obviously has to be a reason he gets so defensive about everything. It’s embarrassing for us to have our president act like this, but if these tweets can be used against him, I hope he keeps tweeting

    • SusanneToo says:

      When you’ve been crooked your entire life, it’s natural to be defensive. trump’s business life has been an unbroken string of cheating, chicanery and cutting corners. Now it’s finally hitting the fan.

      • Honey says:

        So funny that he’s being investigated for being one of the most crooked men in the world, and he still calls someone who was proven innocent “crooked”. He’s definitely got a few screws loose

      • Magnoliarose says:

        Very true. His grandfather was kicked out of Germany by a royal decree and allegedly ran brothels i.e pimp for a living during the gold rush. He dodged taxes and mandatory military service. His father was a shady businessman. So Tangerine is simply carrying on the family tradition of sleaze, moral bankruptcy, misogyny, pathological lying, and bigotry. Tangerine is just doing life Drumpf style.

    • Escaped Convent says:

      @Beth, I don’t think he knows it, though. Everyone around him sees it, and has tried to get him to stop with the crazy tweeting, but he can’t see it. A narcissist on this scale can’t see his own behavior. And he doesn’t listen to anyone. Why have “advisers”?

      I’m surprised anyone deals with him at all. That goes for Spicer, Kellyanne ConJob, that jerk Priebus, all of them. His family is stuck with him, and they’re just as corrupt. But what’s the excuse for the rest of them? Do they adore him that much? Are their hellish jobs worth that much to them?

      This, to me, is the biggest mystery of all.

  12. SusanneToo says:

    I LOOOOOVE the take-downs of trump on twitter. Yeah, I’m petty. So?

    The walls are closing in on Bigly Smalls. Not fast enough, but they’re closing. Next stop, disgrace, hopefully with a side of criminal charges.

  14. Honey says:

    This insecure idiot must have loved Australia’s PM imitating him. Probably thought they were honoring him for “leading in the real, Internet polls not the fake polls”

  15. Rice says:

    It’s not so much that I’m jaded. I’m just really exhausted by the whole lot of them. Every time I make a conscious effort to not watch the news shows, some new, corrupt shite breaks. It’s like that Australian comedian said on The Daily Show, why do I need to know the names and jobs of all these people? Why do I know that the AG’s full name is Jeffery Beauregard Sessions and that he gets nervous when asked questions about his shadiness? And I’m not even American nor do I live in the US.

    • AMA1977 says:

      It’s even worse than that, it’s “Jefferson Beauregard Sessions.” III. He’s named for two Confederate generals. He’s the third person in his family to be named for two Confederate generals. Now, I know it’s not his fault that he’s named for two Confederate generals, but it is his fault that he’d like to roll race relations in America back to the heyday of the Confederacy, and screw over women and children too while he’s at it. He’s a despicable, lying, pocket-sized lil’ racist lump of horse muffin and he *should* be the worst person in government right now, but he’s way down on the list, given the bunch of trash we’ve got. I’m sorry it’s affecting the rest of the world. We are all sorry and ashamed.

  16. Michelle Thompson says:

    OMFG.
    Distractions and diversions every time he gets caught doing something. What a dumb a@&.
    I wish Hillary would speak up and say ‘you are the one caught up in this because of YOUR actions while you are president. This has nothing to do with me-stop trying to divert attention from this serious issue by talking about me’ …and then go on social media and post a picture of herself on the beach reading a book.

    He is just such a disaster.

  17. Sharon Lea says:

    Lawrence O’Donnell had a great segment last night on how Donald will absolutely deny any wrongdoing right up until he settles his civil cases, like with Trump University. The stance he is taking is par for the course.

  18. msw says:

    I love Trump’s social media. We can get all his lies and deflection in his own words with no spin. Tweet forever, Donald! Someday it will be his demise. If he had any brains at all, he would have stopped a long time ago.

    He and LeAnn Rimes should start a club

  19. Giddy says:

    Will this be the first administration to have both the president and the vice-president impeached? Will most of the cabinet get indicted? Will precious Jared and Princess Nagini the Corrupt have to go to jail? I’m here for all of it. These people, chosen by Bigly, have used their positions for their own agendas, not what is best for our country. I’d like to see the lot of them charged with treason.

    • Luca76 says:

      Well Spiro Agnew was just as dirty as Nixon so he resigned first (it was also a way to take some heat off of him) then Nixon appointed Ford. But theoretically they could have both been impeached.

      • Charlotte says:

        As I recall, with Agnew, the Feds had hard evidence of his accepting cash payoffs from his time as governor while he was VP. His resignation was nothing more than a plea bargain, obvious even at the time.

        In my current fantasy world, Pence does an Agnew, then the responsible Republicans (please, dear Lord, let there be some), inform 45 that he’ll be nominating a new VP of *their* choice – a reasonably honest, reasonably moderate (for current values of “honest” and “moderate”) figure with the political and leadership skills to clean things up.

        Then, of course, 45 is gone. He’d probably be willing to plea bargain away the office for no jail time, though I don’t think for a minute that he’d hesitate to throw anyone off the bus to save his orange a$$ if that were part of the price.

      • Luca76 says:

        Thanks for the history I wasn’t actually alive at the time.

      • Bethy says:

        @Luca76, if you live in the US, ABC News is doing a 2 hour documentary on Nixon and Watergate at 9pm EST. As a social studies teacher, I wish school was in session, I’d make this mandatory watching for my students. 😀

      • holly hobby says:

        Ooh! I may just watch this. Watergate broke when I was too young to know and college history class ended at WW2. I still remember my history teacher telling us to ask our folks about Vietnam and Watergate because we simply ran out of time. I hope now, they started a 3rd class on US History teaching this.

    • Juliette says:

      @bethy Thanks for that info! I wasn’t born until long after Watergate and will absolutely watch this to see the comparisons between then and now. A few of my older friends & relatives have said this current situation is far worse than Watergate, it will be interesting to see.

      I’m in Canada and am just astounded at the craziness in DC right now. America has survived far worse than this and they will again but these are sure scary times. Hang in there, Canada loves you all!

    • Bellagio DuPont says:

      @ Giddy…..if only.

      One of my adult fantasies now is to see the deranged, bloated, Mouldy Orange occupying the White House dragged off by his toupee to a nice maximum prison somewhere far away and secluded.

      Unfortunately though, my fear wrt this scandal is that the corruption is just too widespread and runs too deep….there are just too many members of his party who are…….what’s the word for it……complicit. It would engulf such a large chunk of the GOP leadership that there is absolutely zero political will to really take on the beast so to speak.

      Between Vlad the vampire and the mouldy Orange you have enough psychopathy to ensure that any real dissent is crushed and crushed hard. Just think about how many of Vlads enemies/critics have met a nice, colorfully grisly end…..do you think he would be averse to using the same tactics in America? And would the Mouldy Orange object? I think not.

      PS: my description of Emperor Bigly as “a bloated mouldy orange” was stolen from another poster on here called Scout. Sadly, I am now unable to think of him in any other way.

  20. lowercaselois says:

    He is his own worst enemy, isn’t he?

  21. Jenns says:

    I love that he just confirmed that he’s under investigation through a tweet. His lawyers must love him.

  22. tw says:

    He is obsessed with Hillary. She really got under his orange skin. Flash forward 6 months, as Trump is cuffed and escorted out of court, “BUT HILLARY’S EMAILS!!!”

  23. Luca76 says:

    My theory this whole debacle is the real life version of The Producers. They didn’t expect to win so they were laundering money left and right and way too cozy with the Russians.

  24. nemera34 says:

    He is going to fire DAG Rod Rosenstein first or Sessions. Then he will find someone to replace him that will fire Mueller. He is not acting like someone that is innocent.

    It is beginning.

    • B n A fn says:

      He doesn’t want them to follow the money. He knows Mueller is going to after his tax returns and he’s afraid. He’d rather tear the country than for anyone to follow the money right to Russia. The plot thickens.

    • Megan says:

      He can’t fire Sessions or Rosenstein. The minute they become private citizens they can be compelled to testify against Trump.

      • Rapunzel says:

        He tweeted: “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt”. At first, I thought this was Mueller he was talking about, which makes no sense cause Mueller didn’t have anything to do with Comey’s firing. But now I realize it’s Rosenstein he’s talking about.

        Why would he say this about Rosenstein? To lay groundwork for firing him. Rosenstein will go. Then Mueller.

        But I’m not sure this plan will work. Can Trump get someone else to take Rosenstein’s place? I can’t imagine who would still want to work for this administration.

      • Luca76 says:

        Executive privilege can still be invoked for private information for instance Trump had to allow Sally Yates to testify and waive his privilege.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Rosenstein or another person in AG/DeptAG spot can’t just fire Mueller. They have to have cause. From Time:

        “Regulations say the prosecutor can be removed on grounds of “misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or for other good cause, including violation of Departmental policies,” and the termination must be in writing.”

        Rosenstein has already publically stated during congressional testimony that he sees no evidence of cause to fire Mueller.

    • holly hobby says:

      Let him do it. He already cracked Pandora’s Box when he fired Comey. That box will explode all over him if he makes a move to get rid of Rosenstein and Mueller. It doesn’t stop the investigation. It only makes it worse. Can’t he get that into his helmet head?

      His sister is a US Appeallate Judge. You would think she would have told him. However, I never saw her at the inauguration parties so maybe they do not get along?

  25. Marion C. says:

    I think the Senate and Congress hope this keeps going on at it’s keeping much of their rollback/crappy legislation under the radar. Today’s NY Times had an article about the Senate’s health care bill and McConnell said he had no plans for public readings/review. Haven’t seen anything about it anywhere else.

    He also just appointed his son’s wedding planner, with a probably fake law degree, to head the federal housing program office in NY.

  26. Incredulous says:

    What’s that, Lassie? Little Donald is stuck down a deepening well of blustering desperation? Eh, everyone told him to stay away from it so…

  27. Magnoliarose says:

    He used the wrong letter. Tangerine needs to absorb the fact that we have collectively moved down the alphabet right to J for that guy from the Kushner crime family. You know the pale dead eyed wraith floating around the white house.

  28. Joannie says:

    Give Trump enough rope he’ll hang himself. One just has to sit back and watch.

  29. Escaped Convent says:

    @tigerlily

    That’s exactly how he operates. Emotionally, he would be the most immature kid in any class of kindergartners. He seems to have zero control over himself. And he believes he’s special and above everyone else. It may seem trifling, but I thought it was an interesting symptom when, at that bigly dinner recently, everyone at the table got one scoop of ice cream, while he got two. No decent host would do that in front of guests, and that’s just the smallest reason its noteworthy.

    He has behaved this way all of his life. He believes he is exempt from all rules and conditions of decency and society. He is more than immoral; he is amoral, and there’s no fix for that.

    • Juliette says:

      And what about that shove to get through the crowd at the NATO meeting. The look on his face just just shows what an bullying narcissist he is. Also, that everyone else walked and took a golf cart.

      He is disgusting and pathetic.

      • Escaped Convent says:

        Oh yes, those are also in Trump’s Greatest Hits, thank you, Juliette! Shoving the Prime Minister of Montenegro! That is totally at the top of reasons he shouldn’t be allowed out in society. That was mind-boggling. His expression showed that he believed he should be in front of everyone else, and I doubt that he gave a thought to shoving others out of the way. He’s what’s important, nothing else.

        I love the golf cart trick, too. Disgusting jerk.

        Something he always boasted about was how he had so much stamina and energy and Hillary had none. Seeing the orange beast in the golf cart while even women wearing high heels were walking was pretty funny. He must save his energy and stamina in case he needs to shove and knock people over

    After Rosenstein followed Trump’s orders yesterday and issued that strange memo about not trusting “anonymous sources”(especially those from foreign countries), Trump gets on twitter and stabs Rosenstein in the back. What is it about Bannon and Trumps WH, that makes qualified people turn into complicit and incompetent people? Rosenstein should have seen this coming because Trump did the same thing to McMaster after he tried to defend Trump for leaking classified information to the Russians and removing Article 5 from his NATO speech.

    So now Trump is back to claiming that it was Rosenstein’s idea to fire Comey, even though Trump told Lestor Holt that he made up his mind to fire Comey before Rosenstein even wrote that letter and Rosenstein testified that he knew that Comey was going to be fired before he even wrote the letter. So Trump is upset with Rosenstein because his attempt to refute the “Trump is under investigation for obstruction of justice” stories backfired.

    Trump tells lies because he knows that there won’t be any consequences. The GOP will still stand behind because they are afraid of whatever the Russians collected on them and reporters like Kristen Welker, Kelly Odonnell, Hailly Jackson, Pete Willaims, and Bob Costa will continue to try to normalize his bad behavior because they don’t want to give up seats in Spicer’s briefing.

      Well I wouldn’t discount Rosenstein. I think that man is wily and may be documenting orangino all along just in case something happens to him. Comey said so as much. Rosenstein has survived several administrations. You don’t get to still be at the party without knowing how to play the game so to speak.

    Genuine question: How did the Russians interfere with the American election? What did they actually do?

      They sent phishing messages to companies that create the voting machines. One employee at a company fell for it. They used his employee information to attempt to hack voting machines in 39 states. They also targeted voters in social media, using them to distribute false information about Clinton via “fake news”.

    Oh, maybe he should have James Comey investigate her…oh, wait.

  33. Plibersek says:

    When asked about how she feels about being called Crooked Hillary, how funny would it be if she said ‘Of course I’m crooked. I’m a politician’ 😀

    I recently saw a documentary about Trump, especially Trump Tower and his past connections to mobsters and other shady people. It was nothing new really or groundbreaking, but gave a good summary about his past business dealings (you can google around on the net for bits and pieces if you look for stuff about Bayrock or Felix Sater). It was a German investigative piece and, from what I read on the net, Dutch television also did an investigative documentary on Trump’s Russia and Israel connections. And that US tv passed on the opportunity to do or air something about all that? Can someone here confirm this or have things about Trump’s shady past aired in the US?

    I can’t get Comey’s remark out of my head that with Mueller he is sure that at the end of the investigation no stone will be left unturned… I have thought before – but now especially after hearing this, looking at who Mueller works with plus seeing the work investigative journalists do – that in the end it might not be obstruction of justice or collusion are going to be his downfall, but that money laundering and possibly tax stuff will come into play. Those things spelt the end of the line for other big(ly) names.

      I thought it was common knowledge he was a scumbag shady businessman but people believed his image. But then his audience is a different segment of society than I know. He is considered a boorish sleazy shady con artist. He lies about everything including his wealth. His ties with the boxing world and gambling are totally mafia connected. There is no possible way to operate in Atlantic City without some connections. He is not as good at business as people think, it is a myth. This is why he had very few endorsements. There were plenty of people who knew he was unfit.
      I guess his fans hear he has buildings with his name on it and golf clubs and a house in Palm Beach and assumes he is on par with William Buffet but he isn’t because his money is dirty. He is not a self-made great man of distinction, he is a joke. He has a terrible reputation and loads of people refuse to deal with him.
      Journalists did not do their job early when they should have and did us all an injustice. Now Tangerine is freaking out because if he is truly investigated he will be exposed.

        I agree, many got conned and could/should have known better, and those who saw behind the mask did not find powerful enough allies (for one most of the media did not do their job properly). There were documentaries and reports about him and his failed and shady businesses well back (decades ago actually). I remember bits and pieces from years ago. However, any serious investigation neeeds proof, informants, papertrails etc. – at least now with Mueller let’s hope there is a chance to uncover some secrets and make them stick. It could take some time though, because it has to be thoroughly done and watertight.

        But yes, I do think a lot of his behaviour (rants, accusations, deflections) stem from an odd mix of feeling above the law and being a narcissist on the one hand – he always got away with this kind of behaviour and it even took him as far as the WH – and on the other hand from a rising panic creeping in about possible exposure and who knows what kind of dirty secrets being dug up.

        Yes also to people not wanting to do business with him: That documentary mentioned that US banks denied him money and business dealings years ago and there came a point when only foreign banks would lend him money (the Deutsche Bank being among them, but Russian connections were mentioned, too).

    And the Bigly one is using an inflated poll to brag about 50% approval rating. Loser.

    Oh and did anyone else hear the Kellyanne C has labeled the Cheetomeister “healer in chief”? Barf.

    Oh, and Agent Orange said Steve Scalie “took a bullet” for America and he should be proud that his getting shot is bringing us together as a country. What the covfefe?

    Just let him keep tweeting. He’ll hang himself. The man is delusional and tweets to get people to think about everything else but what is going on in his house with his cronies and family. Just remember RESIST!!!

    This man – Trump – continues to display obvious symptoms of dementia. Granted, along with other, likely long-standing personality disorders. But folks, any one of us who has spent time around a dementia patient, had a close family member who succumbed to dementia is recognizing the symptoms. Ironically, his family may not recognize these symptoms for what they are. Family member are often in very strong denial, especially when the person had a “strong” personality to begin with. The outright lies, the inappropriate tweets, the continuous anger, the poor decision making – all of these are symptoms.

    I’ve noticed the word “irrational” being used more often as a descriptor by the MSM lately. Especially when talking about Trump having been asked and probably begged to stop tweeting. Commentators seem to continuously ask “What is he thinking?” Well, we know what he is thinking. From his tweets. And much of it is unwise, inaccurate, and yes, irrational.

    This is a terrible situation our country is in. It is bad when it happens within a family (I know this first hand) but when it is happening with the leader of a country, it is really, really bad.
    The sooner the people who are dealing with Trump – and I mean everybody – begin to acknowledge there is a real problem here, the better off things will be for everyone. I do not like Trump and I did not vote for him. But this surely cannot be pleasant for him.
