Trump is making the Clintons look clean

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/trump...193314744.html

Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016 in part because voters perceived his opponent, Hillary Clinton, to be a dishonest, self-dealing phony.

Trump has now pulled off the improbable: He makes Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill look like ethical exemplars, compared with the corruption endemic in Trump’s administration.

JUST IN: In unanimous 98-0 vote, Senate passes non-binding resolution expressing opposition to allowing Russia to interview current and former U.S. officials. - @frankthorp

Donny had to back off this idiotic idea seconds before this humiliation.

Meanwhile, Whell and his fellow idiot Trumpkins: “See, he’s the Great Uniter!”

His idiotic policies are having exactly the opposite of their intended effect.

In secret recording seized by FBI, Trump and Cohen discuss making payments for story of former model who alleged affair with Trump
Quote:
Federal investigators have an audio recording in which then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and his personal lawyer Michael Cohen discussed in fall 2016 making payments for the story of Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal, who allegedly had an extramarital affair with Trump, according to two people familiar with the tape.

Cohen recorded the conversation with Trump, which was seized by federal agents now investigating Trump’s longtime confidant for potential bank and campaign finance crimes, according to multiple people familiar with the probe.

In a statement, Trump attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani confirmed the tape’s existence and said no payment was ever made.
Wonder who broke this story and how. On a brighter side, we may not hear from the resident deplorable aka Mr. Hell. on this story.

Yeah, this one has Donny worried, exposes him as a liar yet again, and there are many other tapes. So of course he deflects, with a tweet about his stupid campaign against NFL players. Sigh. Whell will be kissing his ass on that non-issue soon enough.

The World Burns. Sarah Sanders Says This Is Fine.
The White House press secretary has set a new precedent: Partisanship over patriotism. Victory over truth.

This is a White House that prioritizes the scoring of points over the complexities of compromise. Sanders, on behalf of the president she works for—a happy warrior in a culture war that has found a front in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue—takes for granted an assumption that would be shocking were it not so common in the American culture of the early 21st century: There are things that are more important than truth.

Trumpism at work!
Quote:
After a man last Thursday approached the checkout at a Home Depot in Albany, N.Y., staff member Maurice Rucker asked him to leash his dog. That’s when the man exploded.

Rucker, a 60-year-old black man, claimed he was fired Tuesday after defending himself from a customer who, he told the Times Union, went on a racist tirade. But after the news media covered his story, the company changed its mind.

The customer allegedly responded to Rucker’s request with insults.

“If Trump wasn’t president, you wouldn’t even have a job,” the customer said, according to Rucker’s retelling to NBC affiliate WNYT. “You’re from the ghetto, what do you know?”
This associate had been employed by HD for 10 years and for 8 of those years, Obama was president! Ignorance has no limits.

Home Depot said it would provide backpay, but it’s unclear whether Rucker has accepted the offer.

My American friends are asking me about President Trumps’s observation that the British ‘like him’

I regret this is quite unfounded

The explanation for this canard is that Trump is pronoid
Pronoid is the opposite of paranoid. A paranoid person thinks, without any basis in reality, that everybody is out to get them. A pronoid person is someone who thinks, without any
basis in reality, that everybody likes them

The fact is that the British loathe Donald Trump

This is because he is the polar opposite of a ‘ Gentleman ‘, who has qualities the British admire. A fine example is Gareth Southgate

To the British, a ‘ Gentleman ' is a man who is modest, well-mannered, self deprecating, quietly intelligent, considerate of other people’s feeling, and well-informed.

He is not vulgar, inflated, vain, boastful, noisily ignorant, sleazy and common as muck

I hope this clears up any confusion
