-When you see ANYTHING Pre-Trump, do you get a feeling of warm nostalgia?
-As GoT’s is in hiatus. You can fill some of that time by reading GoT’s showrunner David Benioff’s terrific City of Thieves. You may have seen another of his books as a movie, 25 Hours, starring Ed Norton. Both book and movie are very good.
-First year of OZARK on Netflix starring Jason Bateman and Laura Linney is a real contender. It’s got a little of a Breaking Bad premise. Jason Bateman works a lot, but is underrated, but may not be after this.
-After another of Trump’s classy speech/rallies in Phoenix, he slept out of the White House or a Trump property, only for the second time in his Presidency(besides overseas travel). It must be the pj’s, robe and chocolate milk and cookies.
-Don’t miss the article in the Washington Post on 8/24 about what Trump has Undone. It’s by Philip Bump, one of WaPo’s top Trump killers, who make The Untouchables look incompetent.
-Finally one dividend from Trump’s alternative reality language-they’re calling the NFL’s 4th exhibition game-”fake football”. How about all 4 exhibitions?
Notice that the NFL has certain crypto-fascist tendencies?
-First serious rumors of real friction between Trump and General Kelly. Trump wants to have fun, with people streaming in and out of the White House. General Kelly wants basic training and as you might guess, is not a lot of fun. Trump has to sneak away from Kelly on a private phone to talk to Bannon, frequently. The next Chief of Staff may have to be Ghengis Khan. How about changing the President, instead of CoS?
-Trump thought his trip to Houston was a TV reality show
where he discussed HIS crowd size with the crowd. Is this like asking someone how much they weigh and you tell them no, you must be 50 lbs more? Very solicitous and understanding! Oprah would have done better giving away cars. He will now go back on Labor Day Weekend to try to act like a President.
-What should we call it when Trump accuses the media of constantly doing something like not showing his crowd sizes and their cameras are doing just that? “Can I Get a Witness” or delusional blindness?
-Melania, who has probably been voluntarily invisible,
realizing cyber bullying starts at home, showed up in Houston and immediately set the American record for height of stiletto shoes for First Ladies. This was in the largest flood in the history of America. On a normal sunny day, she could be a foot taller. Mamie Eisenhower is turning over in her grave.
-Trump “pledged” a fake $1M to “Houston”. Compare this to a fake $5M for birther proof-I guess an Hawaiian birth certificate wasn’t enough. He can’t pay it out of his fake charitable foundation, as it’s under investigation in NYS, a real audit, not his fake income tax IRS audit. On the other hand Trump withdrew his lawsuit in 2013 when Bill Maher offered $5M to a charity of Trump’s choice, if he could prove he didn’t have orangutan DNA. Only comedians can handle the stupidity of Trump and his orangutan behavior, not the GOP, which is trying to hitch a ride on a fake President to get their “agenda” passed, an agenda such as “Repeal and Replace”. Al Franken warm up in the bullpen. I’ll take the over on when Trump pays the $1M, unless military vets threaten him. Look how much money his family and he have stolen in the last 11 months, since he was elected. Squeeze some out.
-Actually the Kushner family is having financial problems, based on the white elephant, 666 5th Avenue. What a shame. Do we think Wonder Kid is discussing this on his foreign trips with Sovereign Funds, etc.?Too bad 666 is not residential, or they could fill it up with Russian mobsters, like Trump Tower. Everyone says The Trump Mob won’t understand Washington, D.C., where they’re stealing pretty good and Congress is so confused, they need John McCain, after brain chemo, to remind them of separation of powers. It’s the Federal judges in places like Hawaii and good old New York, with Eric Schneiderman, the State AG, and 666 5th Avenue, hanging on to the Trumps’ like a mad dog biting their ankles.
-Bill Maher gems from 8/27 show:
*Trump condemned the violence of Harvey-on both sides.
*New psychological definition: Erratic bordering on Presidential.
*New Trump schedule: TelePrompTer-Mon, Wed, Fri. Tweet and rally madness Tues and Thur.
*Fans starting to leave Trump rallies early.They say if we leave at “Build the wall” we’ll be on the road by “Drain the swamp”. [Attacks on the press getting a little creepy,. when Liar Numero Uno rails against the lying
press. His supporters cherish Trump’s lies. The new and better jobs? Repeal…was that really 7 years already? A Presidential lie, is a lie, but irrelevant with too many Trump supporters.] [Original material].
*Trump bragging about being able to change tones, is actually schizophrenia.
-Talking about lies, the Trumpsters were playing crowd games again. In order to show how many people couldn’t fit into the Phoenix arena, they posted a picture of the whole Quickens Arena crowd after the CAVS clinched its championship in ‘16 in Northern CA, while an arena full of Clevelanders watched on giant screens and then poured out to celebrate and mill around-no political flags from our WWII enemies.
-With Trump taking credit for any good occurrences, whether he had anything to do with it or even opposed it, I find myself doing something I never dreamed of, too often rooting against this country, not to speak of its President.
-Trump is now being called a “Bully without a pulpit”. Cannot think of another President who fit that description, with the U.S. having the largest military and economy in the world by far. Do you think people notice that Trump accomplishes nothing, but trying to unwrap Obama’s legacy. He thinks it’s his old magic slate.. But then again, other than the planets being drunk on November 8th, Trump never accomplished anything, unless you believe he built a successful business. Let’s hope the world’s record of 6 public company bankruptcies(with Wilbur Ross and Carl Icahn saving him from a personal bankruptcy in Atlantic City as well as the Chinese on the West Side of NYC) will not be analogous to military or domestic disasters.
-The world has noticed the depth of his tweeting diplomacy. In this new approach, he should keep his saliva dry. Threatening trade relations with S.Korea in the midst of his dead end approach to N. Korea, is typically Trump, who understands nothing about international trade. Maybe the S.Koreans should pull our air and base rights, as we’re no longer a consistent, trustworthy ally.
Trump’s agenda is what came flying out of his mouth to a minority of Americans, when he never believed he would win, until the Russians pushed him across the goal line. Build a wall-fat chance; clean up the swamp-he is the swamp; bring back all the manufacturing jobs-the clock’s ticking; “Repeal and Replace”-enough is enough; ad nauseum.
-As for DACA, since Trump is a non-stop liar, he has no problem reneging on 600-800,000 Dreamers. We have a President who likes to inflict pain. Did he ever think of the economic effects of this kind of action on the relevant states? Where is American business, which wants reasonable immigration?
