I won't know for a while, but my final chemo treatment was a week and a half ago, the side effects are subsiding, and I feel better than I have in a long time. Thanks for asking.

So that whole, "I bet you wimps would never challenge big, bad Donald physically" stuff got me thinking last night. I sincerely believe that I could defeat an entire gauntlet of all living Presid

Per the Washington Post, Trump has now passed the 3,000 lie mark. 

To put this in perspective, Albert Pujols is currently at 2,999 hits. But Pujols achieved this over a 20 year career. Trump acccomplished his record over a little more than a year. 

Lot harder to get a single off Clayton Kershaw than it is to tell somebody you didn’t pay off a porn star

JUST OUT: 3.9% Unemployment. 4% is Broken! In the meantime, WITCH HUNT!

 

Unemployment is down...so of course its a witch hunt.

As if the two are related.  Also nice to see the unemployment rate is meaningful again, odd how that changed.

Senate Banking Chair Mike Crapo held 78 campaign-related events at the same lobbyist-owned condo Pruitt rented. That lobbyist's ex-firm has disclosed work on at least 10 pieces of legislation considered by Crapo's committee since Crapo became chair.

I have said it before but why does Rupert Murdoch get a pass telling the U.S. public that Russia hacking our election is a hoax?

Free speech?  Would it be ok if the most popular network on tv said Pearl Harbor was a hoax at the time?  

This is a real threat.  Half the country believes Sean Hannity.

Exaggerating?  No such thing anymore.

I think there's always been misinformation and counter news sources.  It's just that in this day and age a bigly percentage of the people in this country are amazingly gullible and looking for anyone to blame for their issues but themselves.

Probably a Holocaust denier, too.  And, Pearl Harbor wasn't a hoax, it was a conspiracy that FDR encouraged to get the US into the war against those poor misunderstood Nazis.

I think it's important to note in advance that "Campaign Finance Violations" is a fancy way to say "cheating in an election".  

"Campaign Finance Violation" sounds like a simple accointing error that a layperson doesnt really understand.  I mean it could be that, but funneling money from account A to account B, where account B is for something shady...thats cheating.  Thats illegal, and its not a minor thing.

Trump seemed jubilant during the NRA speech yesterday. He’s clearly enjoying himself. People speculate that he’s stressed out over Mueller, but it certainly doesn’t sound that way to me. Extremely confident about everything that’s happening and predicted Republican gains in November. He even claimed that he is loved by blacks and hispanics. 

Trump’s arguments about gun control “should we make cars illegal? Knives?” was similar to Stealthycat in this forum: simplistic and paranoid, and the crowd loved it. They also loved his doom filled immigration rhetoric, in which a bunch of starving refugees at our southern border are transformed into violent thugs who are the vanguard of an invasion.

No if you want to hear stress watch his interview on the tarmac. In front of the crowds he’s indulging in fantasy as much as they are.

Trump watches fox news. The crowd watches fox news. He tells them the stories they want to hear. It comes from the president. They feel validated. They love it.

I think the dems have to assume that they will vote.  If the dems and moderates get out and vote like we should it shouldn't matter what Trump's base does.

Correct me if I’m wrong but Trump didn’t really drive high GOP turnout in 2016, he suppressed Dem turnout. I don’t think that trick works in State and District races scattered across the country.

This piece from Dana Milbank at WaPo is hilarious:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/who-says-president-trump-doesnt-have-a-prayer/2018/05/04/013eafc6-4fd4-11e8-af46-b1d6dc0d9bfe_story.html?utm_term=.e9c2ca18b0e3&wpisrc=nl_most&wpmm=1

This week brought evidence that God exists — and has a wicked sense of humor.

At 6:46 a.m. Thursday, President Trump confirmed to the world what Rudolph W. Giuliani had blurted out on television the night before: Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen the $130,000 in hush money paid to Stormy Daniels over her alleged affair with Trump.

At 11:38 that same morning, Trump stood in the Rose Garden and heralded the National Day of Prayer, complete with references to the “Glory of God” and “God’s mercies and blessings.”

Even CNBC could not resist the pairing: “Trump leads National Prayer Day event after saying he repaid lawyer for hush money to porn star,” the often-staid business-news network tweeted.

Loyal Vice President Pence attempted to burnish the president’s piety. “There’s prayer going on on a regular basis in this White House,” he told the Christian Broadcast Network. (Indeed, prayer is the only basis for White House economic forecasts.) “I’ve lost count of the number of times that the president has nudged me, or nudged another member of the Cabinet, and said, ‘Let’s start this meeting with prayer.’ ”

Pence: Trump is a 'champion' for religious believers of 'every background'

At the White House's National Day of Prayer event on May 3, Vice President Pence said President Trump will "protect and promote Americans of faith." (Reuters)

That’s odd, because Trump, who proposed a prayer for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ratings at a prayer breakfast last year, seems not particularly inspired by the whole prayer exercise; his prayer-day remarks consisted largely of ad-libbed adjectives appended to a prepared speech. On the Pences: “They believe. It’s good.” Billy Graham: “Great, great man. Great.” Martin Luther King Jr.: “Great man.” America as a nation of believers: “Right? That’s very true.” People who minister to the poor: “And they really do!”

But what if Trump actually were the prayerful sort? If he were — and, given recent events, it would be advisable — his National Day of Prayer remarks would likely be rather different. Something, perhaps, like this:

Almighty and everlasting God, from whom comes every good and perfect gift, give Rudy Giuliani the gift of discretion. Lead him no more, I beseech thee, to the Altar of Hannity. Grant him the wisdom to know what he does not know, and the courage not to fake it. Give him pause when he would speak about those who say they have lain with me.

Eternal God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth, bring peace to the souls of those who have departed my legal team, some before they began, including Ty Cobb, John Dowd, Joe diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Dan Webb, Tom Buchanan and Marc Corallo. I commend to thy Fatherly goodness those afflicted souls who have fallen in service to me, especially Ronny Jackson, David Shulkin, H.R. McMaster, Rex Tillerson, Gary Cohn, Tom Price, Steve Bannon, Anthony Scaramucci, Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and Richard Gates. But not Andrew McCabe.

Deliver me, O Lord, from Robert Mueller, and deliver me no subpoena. Lead me not to plead the Fifth. And of Thy mercy cut off mine enemies, particularly Rod Rosenstein and Adam Schiff. O Prince of Peace, spare me James Comey, for he hath persecuted my soul.

O God, fountain of wisdom, make people none the wiser that I lied about the hush money. Pardon me, heavenly Father, as I have pardoned Scooter Libby and Joe Arpaio.

Almighty God, inspire the evangelicals to remain faithful to me, with everlasting and unlimited forgiveness. Lift up my followers at Fox News, especially Neil Cavuto, who has lapsed.

Forgive me my debts, O Gracious Father, to Michael Cohen, for the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York would notice further payments. Look with compassion on Michael, and inspire him to turn toward you, and not be turned by prosecutors.

O God, whom saints and angels delight to worship in heaven, heal those who are broken in body and spirit. (Yet do not hesitate to send down on Michael Avenatti a case of laryngitis.) Restore, I pray, the dignity of Sarah Sanders; she knows not what she says. Revive Harold Bornstein from his fragility, and inspire him to take it down a notch.

Watch over Thy child Scott Pruitt, O Lord, and grant him a day without a new scandal. May John Kelly, guided by Thy Providence, cease calling me names. May Marco Rubio complain no more about the tax cut. May Jared Kushner not revise his financial disclosures for the 41st time.

By your grace, hold the tongue and pen of Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal and many others, that they grant no further interviews nor write memoirs.

Bless Alan Dershowitz. Raise up Devin Nunes. Strengthen Bibi. And, for heaven’s sake, cut the mustache of John Bolton.

Finally, O Eternal God, grant that my greatness be known throughout this land. For mine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory. Amen.

Same reason he talked about the NK hostage release. He seems to be under the impression he is Secretary of State.

Compile your list of the criticism Cavuto had for Trump here which is wrong. The only problem I had with him is he thinks Trumps policies are awesome and still supports Trump.
