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

Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, in a private call with constituents, excoriated President Trump, saying he had mishandled the coronavirus response, "kisses dictators' butts," "sells out our allies," spends "like a drunken sailor," mistreats women, and trash-talks evangelicals behind their backs.

Trump has "flirted with white supremacists," according to Sasse, and his family "treated the presidency like a business opportunity."

Trump brags about extrajudicial killing of an American citizen on American Soil

https://twitter.com/acyn/status/1316801262277455872?s=21

And the crowd cheers.

This tops even Obama who ordered the murder of a US citizen in the Middle East. Trump seemed to confirm the reporting of the Times on this. My god this is the big government and police state tactics that conservatives are always yelling about. This is it.

Trump, asked to denounce/disavow QAnon, says he knows nothing about it, then adds, "I do know they are very much against pedophilia. They fight it very hard." Bonkers.

Guthrie: "But there is not a satanic pedophile cult."
Trump: "I have no idea."
Guthrie: "You don't know that?"
Trump: "No I don't know that. And neither do you know that."

On the one hand, that's pretty insane. On the other hand, of course he's never going to discredit a theory that says he's secretly saving the country and is actually the best President in American history.

He doesn’t know what QAnon is? Give me a break he’s the President. If he doesn’t know who they are he’s admitting his own ignorance. He knows exactly what they are. This is a farce.

How did I miss this week that Trump RT’d a conspiracy that Biden has Seal Team 6 members killed to cover up for the fact they faked Bin Laden’s death? How does this guy have anyone’s vote?

It’s unreal how thoughtless he is. No way he even read the story

Dorsey smashed a glass box in his office reading "Break In Case Of Bad Publicity For Democrats." Inside the case was a sledgehammer for smashing Twitter's servers.

"Red alert -- shut the servers down! Shut them all down!"

Dorsey ran downstairs and started smashing as many computers as he could

It then says the Twitter team creates robots to smash the rest of the Twitter computers. This is what the President is taking for actual news lol. 
 

Lost in this all, who is Big T?

He basically admitted last night he doesn't really vet what he retweets anyway.  Yeah, he was either forwarded that from someone else, or saw the headline and thought it was true because it made his "enemies" look bad.  Pretty sure that type of impulsive behavior is not a strong quality for POTUS.

Yeah I’m not sure which is funnier/more embarrassing that the President read the story and took it as actual reporting or that the President will believe and share any headline he reads without reading the article or looking at the source. This should tell everyone what they need to know about his qualifications to run the country.

Also there’s a difference between vetting a story and skimming through it. He’s not even skimming these things.

Yeah...but we are going to get this super awesome vetting soon to end the "temporary" immigration ban from several islamic countries.  How is that temporary ban coming by the way...was supposed to be several months long right...going on how many years now?

At least the rich got another tax cut for flying on private jets.

Here’s How You Can Save 7.5% Off Your Private Jet Flights In 2021 And Beyond

That 7.5% will now be used to invest in working class Americans, obviously!  We’re down with this trickle, ya hear!

It was nestled in the CARES Act.  Because the poor and those that truly need shouldn't be the only people to get help.

Some highlights of the DrudgeReport front page tonight:

John Kelley unloads on Trump

Quote

"The depths of his dishonesty is just astounding to me. The dishonesty, the transactional nature of every relationship, though it's more pathetic than anything else. He is the most flawed person I have ever met in my life," the retired Marine general has told friends, CNN has learned.

TRUMP: I MIGHT LEAVE COUNTRY IF I LOSE (Blaring red/blue siren worthy, apparently)

Disappointing that someone like Kelley, who I'm assuming is proud of his country and should have high moral and ethical standards can only come out and say this to his friends but not go on record to share his opinion of the commander in chief :(

Could you have imagined 5 years ago that this quote would be made by an American general and he would be talking about the President?  It’s unreal.

The quote itself is not shocking, as it doesn't say anything that we didn't already know 5 years ago.

The fact that it was stated by a General is somewhat shocking, I suppose, but that's only because there had been a time-honored, unspoken understanding that retired Generals don't criticize Republican Presidents, and vice versa. Trump's lack of respect to tradition has basically given Kelly a green light to speak his mind.

Thread on Trump's Michigan rally. 

Two years ago, this was gross. Now, I'm enjoying every second. 

He might keep holding rallies after he loses, if he can find someone to foot the bill. Just start campaigning for 2024, and head out there. That's my hope anyway.

I agree.  But it will never not be amazing to me that seemingly every single person who works alongside Trump comes out telling the exact same story about how awful he is as a person.  I honestly can't think of anyone in any line of work who is held in such universal contempt by the folks who get to know them.  Even late-career Marlon Brando had his well-wishers.

Edit: Bill Romonowski maybe?

I think Ty Cobb was universally hated.  But I can't think of anyone else.  I've always wondered if Trump has any true friends?

President Donald Trump interrupted one of the earliest classified briefings of his presidency to ask top intelligence officials if they would like a milkshake, according to a new report from Politico. 

"Does anyone want a malt?" Trump reportedly said during the briefing, calling a waiter into the room. "We have the best malts, you have to try them."

 

You know, there's a part of me that is going to miss this buffoonery.  :lmao:
