The fact that pathological liar Trump has denied any collusion with Russia strongly indicates that there was.

FBI Director Comey has acknowledged that there is enough evidence to justify an ongoing criminal investigation into alleged links and connections between Trump campaign officials and Russian agents. At the same meeting, Comey totally discredited President Dumbo's tweets claiming that President Obama had authorized wiretapping of Trump Tower...

FBI report suggests that there is more than circumstantial evidence of collusion now ... https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/report-suggests-fbi-travel-business-151848236.htmlon

The fear is that he's getting into so much trouble that Trump will need a really big distraction to change the news cycle and save his (never-say-I'm...) sorry ass - like a massive war ...

Well, he certainly is a master of diversionary tactics when things start looking bad for him... https://www.yahoo.com/news/u-s-launches-military-strikes-syria-025315056.html Conveniently, it also makes it look like he would never do favors for Putin ...

Reportedly - and this I don't doubt - Trump was very upset upon seeing cable TV vids of children victimized by chemical weapons, but it's likely that after retaliatory strikes on the airfield suspected of being the launch point more civilians will be brutalized and killed by the overwhelming conventional weapons at Assad's disposal. Putin and Iran are also big players in the region - does anyone have confidence that Trump will be able to grasp the complexities, help alleviate the suffering and eventually effect a peaceful resolution in Syria?

Talk about war profiteering - no wonder Rex Tillerson is Secretary of State ... https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/oil-prices-dip-oversupply-concerns-012455580.html

That's a fairly pregnant 'it,' geldedgoat.

Defied his campaign promises [not to attack Assad]?

Crossed Putin?

Violated the Constitution?

Buckled to the Deep State?

Distinguished himself from Obama?

Caused WWIII?

Wagged the dog?

Disappointed the alt-base?

Earned McCain/Graham love?

Began payment on his first installment owed under his pact to the devil?

According to CNN, "it" is "become President." How lacking in self-awareness would Mr. Trump have to be to look at CNN respond in such a way and not feel a moment of panicked regret? Especially after Mrs. Clinton expressed support for his course of action.

Quote:
Leading Congressional Democrats – including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi – quickly praised Trump’s bombing while raising concerns about process. Hours before the bombing commenced, as it was known Trump was planning it, Hillary Clinton – who has been critical of Obama for years for not attacking Assad – appeared at an event and offered her categorical support for what Trump was planning:

I think that Trump probably has some type of dementia, and he really is not readily aware of his contradictory statements and actions. I'm currently living with my 87 year old mother who has dementia, and she constantly denies doing odd things that she's clearly done. She also often alternately scorns and praises the same person (though she's aware enough to always dump on Trump ...)

Although various doctors and psychologists have suggested a number of other possible afflictions (including untreated neurosyphilis) I think that dementia is a key factor...

How is Trump's quest to get decent jobs with good wages for the rural working class going?

Oh, they are still dying from opioids and despair? Well, at least Trump showed Putin, hay.

On the cake: "I was sitting at the table. We had finished dinner and we were now having dessert. We had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen. President Xi was enjoying it."
On the attack: "I say, 'We've just launched 59 missiles, heading to Iraq."

It is? I thought the wording on the hat telegraphed my intent fairly clearly, especially since it immediately followed RTeacher and his sudden concern for the consequences of US military action.

lol. My April 7 post was from my phone, which is set to greyscale. So I missed the coloration signaling your embedded link. Yes it's totally obvious what you are saying when I login from my laptop.

No new jewish wars in the Middle East.

Better relations with Russia.

Executive action on getting the illegals out.

No TPP / TTIP.

Pretty good stuff. A dream.


1. No new Jewish wars? What were the 'old' Jewish wars?
2. Better relations with Russia is like saying better relations with N. Korea. Neither are deserving of better relations from their recent actions. Better relations in the present context means letting Russia continue to screw over its own people as well as countries outside Russia (Ukraine, Syria, etc.)
3. Agree on TPP but that was dead anyway. Dems didn't support it.

Trump doesn't have a clue. The hard core fringe right/supremacists/nationalists that voted him in know it. They simply don't care. Trump is more symbolic than substance to them.

Trump never expected to win. He simply wanted a platform and room on the dais to spout whatever was on his mind. The whole thing fell into his lap.

Right now he's trying to do two things. Figure out what the hell to do and how this can line his pockets. He's figured out the latter.

Its going to be bad. Very bad. The only reason I won't be laughing at the 'deplorables' is that their voting for a joke will bring down a lot of good people with themselves.

This is turning out to be a free for all for the 1%. What will eventually happen is what has been happening with the last couple GOP presidencies. They f*ck things up badly and people will elect a Dem to get the train back on the tracks. The GOP will campaign in off year elections on crappy stuff they created in the first place.

America has no long term hope. We are Rome about a hundred or so years before they were sacked by central European barbarians. Except things will be sped up. We will be like Britain. Living off our history with no where close to the power we once had.

China is the future and in many ways more important than America globally. Its as inevitable when we took over from GB as the world's biggest power.

A lot of the men who voted for Trump are projecting masculine insecurities. Trump says and does what they can only do under anonymity on forums like Dave's ESL. The writing is on the wall. They are becoming demographically insignificant. That horse is out the gate. The opiate epidemic, lack of old economy jobs, growing suicide rates, etc, has sped up the decline.

Sad thing is Trump will likely commit more than a few impeachable acts but the GOP may not kill its own standard bearer. May...because they may do it if one of their own, Pence, is the President and Pence is worse than Trump if that is even possible. Trump will at least change with the political win. Pence is an incompetent true believer in trickle down sh*t economics. Throw in being a fundamental christian nutcase, he won't change. Trump revived a dying political career from Indiana.

The Trump election showed that there are so many f*cked up Americans that there aren't enough sane ones to protect us from them. I will admit to the likelihood I'll be snickering when it all hits the fan.
