You know how Trump said the North Koreans “called up a couple of days ago” and asked for talks? Turns out he was talking about his phone call with South Korea’s president Moon, according to Yonhap m.yna.co.kr/mob2/en/conten…

The Trump admin is reversing course again, plans to grant and deny permits for importing trophies of elephants hunted in Zimbabwe and Zambia on a case by case basis.

That's a change from Trump's statements that he'd keep an Obama-era ban on such imports.

Has there ever been a bigger idiot elected by a country? Normally when you get people this dumb running things it's because you live under a monarchy and the crown get passed to a syphillitic moron.

I've never been to Europe and I have wanted to go for a long time but I'm going to have to rethink it. I'm not sure I'll be able to handle the ridicule. Or maybe I'll just be Canadian for a couple of weeks.

Just got done with episode 6 of the Dirty Money series on Nexflix called The Confidence Man which was about Trump.  Was very good.

Well, we knew it was never going to be a dull moment with this administration, but it still manages to shock me just how far over the deep end we've gone. Here's a sampling of the top threads today on r/politics (reddit).

I'd actually like to hear about what the site owners think of Reddit hosting Russky bots. And lol at Trump being innocent of paying off a porn star because he stiffed his lawyer. There is not much that is more Donald than that.

Today from the Nothing Matters Desk:

Oversight office concludes KellyAnne Conway twice violated the Hatch Act during the Jones/Moore campaign.

The determination was submitted to the White House for appropriate disciplinary action.  There will of course be no action, and "drain the swamp" voters will not care, because nothing matters.

If the principle is that the press cannot interview mentally unbalanced people … well, that’s certainly going to complicate the task of covering the Trump White House

Shocker ...

Jennifer Jacobs‏ @JenniferJJacobs

White House disputes the special counsel’s finding: “Kellyanne Conway did not advocate for or against the election of any particular candidate. She simply expressed the president’s obvious position that he have people in the House and Senate who support his agenda.”

 

This will be a non-story but it's really, really awful. The Hatch Act violation itself is minor, but the disregard for the rule of law is not. The office that recommended disciplinary action is an independent agency that is tasked with interpreting and applying the Hatch Act. The White House just brushed it aside because they know they electorate is too stupid, too partisan and too ill-informed to care.  Just embarrassing.

Why?  Do you think they manage every subreddit?   There was a /nazi subreddit until those guys started getting bad press recently.  I'm sure every social media platform and every comments section of every major media/news site had Russian bots.

Any random joe can make any forum (called sub reddits) about any topic.  There's a DynastyFF one.  There's ones where people sell stuff they got from video games.  There's a place to see celebrity armpits.  There's a little link at the top where you can click to go to a random one.  I'm going to post 3 random subreddits right now:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Montana/  deals with all things Montana apparently, pretty normal

https://www.reddit.com/r/kpop/   Korean pop music... still pretty normal for internetland

https://www.reddit.com/r/Pauper/  IDK, something to do with Magic cards or something... looks pretty specific

Pretty sure there's a forum for anything you could imagine

I should have realized all this before my original post. And I'm still laughing about celebrity armpits.

Seems like a good idea because just regular-person armpits are kind of lame.

Guys, let’s give this administration a chance. I know it seems like turnover is high - OK, highest ever, whatever - but who knows, maybe the second string amateurs will understand governance better than the first string amateurs.

Very interesting. Wonder how the market will react to this over the next few days? Does this mean Trump is following through on his tariffs?

I think it means the tariffs are a go.  

I don’t think it was an accident that this announcement waited until the markets closed.

He got his money. (tax cuts) 

He doesn't want to be a part of it when we start shedding jobs when the President wants to start a trade war because he got his feefees hurt.
