Bob Woodward: Trump's aides stole his papers 'to protect the country'

https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/04/polit...ear/index.html

Quote:
Woodward offers a devastating portrait of a dysfunctional Trump White House, detailing how senior aides — both current and former Trump administration officials — grew exasperated with the President and increasingly worried about his erratic behavior, ignorance and penchant for lying.

Chief of staff John Kelly describes Trump as an "idiot" and "unhinged," Woodward reports. Defense Secretary James Mattis describes Trump as having the understanding of "a fifth or sixth grader." And Trump's former personal lawyer John Dowd describes the President as "a fucking liar," telling Trump he would end up in an "orange jump suit" if he testified to special counsel Robert Mueller.

"He's an idiot. It's pointless to try to convince him of anything. He's gone off the rails. We're in crazytown," Kelly is quoted as saying at a staff meeting in his office. "I don't even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I've ever had."
Sure would love to hear from our resident Trumpkins, but they appear to be in hiding. Embarrassed that they so passionately supported this moron?

When will Trump will fire Kelley and Mattis? Even a rumor would do for now.

The Proud Corruption of Donald Trump
The president has finally stated it plainly: He believes the government should subjugate rule of law to his political needs.

The Warning Signs For Donny

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...gns-for-trump/

Quote:
After 2016, the gap on the generic congressional ballot between support for Republicans and Democrats among white women with college degrees became a canyon. Including our most recent poll, the gap is 38 points — slightly narrower than in our last poll but still reinforcing the idea that the group isn’t going to be a bulwark of support for Republicans in November.

Trump's insane new "Media Accountability Survey"

https://boingboing.net/2018/09/05/tr...-media-ac.html

This is obviously targeted at Whell-like moron Trumpkins. Fun to take it just to mess with these idiots, with full knowledge of the oh-so-biased questions.

I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration
I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/05/o...esistance.html

Wow. The resistance inside the administration, keeping the moron’s basest instincts in check. Repubes in Congress really do need to stop hiding from the Trumpkins, and throw this traitor behind bars where he so rightly belongs.

Quote:
Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over.

And now we hear from an anonymous high official--we might call him 'Deep Resistance"--that there is negative respect for the President among many in his own White House. DR tells of a President seen as blatantly incompetent by many. It's even allegied that the 25th amendment came up in cabinet-level discussions. The effe ct is going to be that everyone will be discussing the 25th amendment.

And odds just got a bunch better for the Dems taking the Senate....

Why, yes, Donny, you are a traitor. Glad you’re finally fessing up!

What tipped us off was ‘lodestar,’ “ MyBookie head oddsmaker David Strauss said of Pence. “When you search members of the administration (who have used that word) only one name comes up – and that name is Mike Pence. He’s used in multiple speeches this year.”
