What a roob

"He said in his remarks: "In just 14 weeks, my administration has brought profound change to Washington." "

--------------------------------------------------------------

He also claimed that his 1st 100 days was the most successful 1st 100 days by a President ever. Deary me.

About the only record he achieved was the most use of unwarranted superlatives ever.

I've got some words for him. Horrible. Terrible.

He loves those.

Are things about to get real ugly on the Peninsular?

"CHINA has called for all of its citizens to return from North Korea immediately as a US citizen is detained for allegedly trying to overthrow the country’s regime.

The Korea Times reports that the Chinese embassy in North Korea began advising Korean-Chinese residents to return to China.

A Korean-Chinese citizen told Radio Free Asia he was advised to ‘stay a while’ in China, and stated: ‘The embassy has never given such a warning. I was worried and left the country in a hurry.’

It comes as North Korea confirmed the detention of another American citizen for alleged acts of hostility aimed at overthrowing the country.

Kim Sang Dok, or Tony Kim, an accounting instructor at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, was “intercepted” at Pyongyang International Airport on April 22, according to the Korean Central News Agency."


------------------------------------------------

It'd be nice if China also TOLD Kim Jong-Un to pull his head in.

Sweet Baby Jesus, Trump!!!

Was going to fire the showboat anyway

"In a new sit-down interview with NBC News, the president labelled the former FBI director a "showboat" and a "grandstander" and said he had decided to fire him before this week."

AND

I invented this

"ECONOMIST: Priming the pump?

TRUMP: Yeah, have you heard it?

ECONOMIST: Yes.

TRUMP: Have you heard that expression used before? Because I haven't heard it. I mean, I just - I came up with it a couple of days ago and I thought it was good. It's what you have to do.

Politifact and others have repeatedly debunked the President's claim that the US is the highest-taxed nation in the world. He continues to say it."


---------------------------------------------

As if we needed any further evidence that The Donald is a buffoon, he now claims he was already going to fire FBI Director Comey for being a "showboat" and a "grandstander". Perhaps he should fire himself, given he is both.

And he thinks he invented the term "priming the pump".

Really, Donald?  Rolling Eyes

Ever taken a peak at Breitbart?

The true face of the alt right - the people that Bernardi, the MM and the lunar right of the Browns take their cues from.

The comments on any of the articles are filled with white is right invective.

I wrote a thesis length paper 40 years ago on the rise of Mussolini and the conjunction of interests between the State and corporates. There are people in the USA who are begging the Pumpkin to unleash State power on folks they do not like - mainly on minorities.

What a strange period we live in. The division of religion in N Ireland kept generations of working class folk focused on shooting out each other's kneecaps. The divisions of religion, race and class are instrumental in the current situation in the US. The difference is the US is an unrivalled nuclear power and is led by a Pumpkin.

Trump has been silent for nearly 24 hours. Has the flamingo on his head pecked out his tongue or twittering finger.

The sacking of the FBI head, leaking of info to the Russkies and attempts to shut down the FBI investigation have exposed the nob.

Expect nothing to happen as the US gets normalised to corporate crookery

Personally I see a close relationship between the Russkies and Seppos to be nothing out of the ordinary. They have much in common - corrupt capos, institutionalised racist and class systems, subjugation of women. The only difference I can see is that Putin is smart.

Trump is out of Washington for the moment, but he hasn't been silent.

"In a commencement ceremony at the Coast Guard Academy, Mr Trump said "no politician in history ... has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can't let them get you down, can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams."

"Over the course of your life, you'll find things are not always fair," he said. "Things happen to you that you do not deserve and are not always warranted, but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever give up. Things will work out just fine."
...
Escaping Washington for the day trip, Mr Trump appeared buoyed as he drew hearty applause throughout his remarks from the crowd of family and friends of the cadets attending the outdoor ceremony on a brilliantly sunny day at the Coast Guard stadium."


--------------------------------------------

What sort of arsehole whinges and whines all the time when he's not being lauded? An arsehole named Trump, that's who.

A little democracy can be a dangerous thing.

I think everyone might be moving a little too quickly and should be giving him more rope and hope the mid terms give them the numbers to do a number on him.

At the mo I can't really think of anything he's done that would see impeachment. And the crowd who love him have the same sort of attitudes as the people who re-elected a mayor after he was busted doing crack with a two dollar hooker in an even cheaper motel.

spot on qmy...agree impeachment is a bridge too far...mid terms may provide a resetting of balance in the intra cranial chemical imbalances affecting the seppos...mind you i expect the next seppo prez to be a Kardashian or Dick Cheney or a Russkie or a Romulan.

I have taken to reading Breitbart and its comments. 

(They have more followers than the NYT, WP, POLITICO and Huff combined judging from the sheer number of comments.)

The people commenting seem so unreal to me beyond old memories of Christians v Lions afternoons.

What a bizarre joint we live in.

The whole situation reminds me of that soccer game a few years ago when the competition rules around draws and deemed scores resulting in one side trying to score an own goal and the other trying to stop them.

At the moment, the Dems don't want Trump impeached because he is going to bring them House control in the mid term and the Presidency and possibly Senate in 2020. On the other hand, I reckon a bunch of Republicans would far prefer Pence in the Whitehouse.

Perhaps the Handmaid's Tale, Attwood's dystopia set in the (future) States, isn't as far off as all that. Memorably horrific.
