Aww, I was looking forward to skipping the whole thing. Now I can only skip part of a tantrum.

Must be pretty bad. He is threatening to post his edited version of the interview before it airs on 60 minutes.

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

You kidding?  For those on the right, the past 8 years the supporters have been focused almost totally on how much the democrats were the enemy.  It was on fox news, on talk radio, on the breitbart an

"I call the head of Exxon. I'll use a company. 'How, how are you doing, how's energy coming? When are doing the exploration? Oh, you need a couple of permits, huh?' But I call the head of Exxon, I say, 'you know, I'd love you to send me $25m for the campaign'”

That seems like it would be illegal in times when anything mattered anymore.

The China bank account story seems like no big deal to me. One of his companies - that does business in China - has a bank account there. Ok.

If I am missing something, please let me know.

Well there is the fact that he owns a company that does business in China. No divestment from his assets as would usually be the case with past presidents, but hey, this is no past president, right? He can do what he wants.

Trump pays more taxes to China than he does the US. Cool cool cool.

I’m old enough to remember Jimmy Carter selling his peanut farm.

Yea. Its absurd that he hasn't divested his business interests. Especially when he had all those wonderful binders of blank pages. 

But that's not a new scandal. So the bank account doesn't seem to add anything new to his horribleness.

No probably not, maybe I just haven’t looked at the news in 12 hours, but I haven’t seen the bank account thing yet. But I did feel the need to point out the trading in China while simultaneously conducting a trade war with China may have some conflict. But a business having a bank account in the country it operates out of isn’t really a surprise.

CNN's Daniel Dale has reported that Trump has taped an interview with Jason Whitlock.

At this point, why doesn't Trump just interview himself? He doesn't want to answer anything but the easiest softball questions anyway.

Trying to impress her, Kayleigh McEnany hands Leslie Stahl a large book containing the Administration’s work on health care. I don’t think she expected Stahl to look at the book, because it’s blank.

It would be a lot more funny if hundreds of thousands of Americans haven't died because of his refusal to do anything BUT try to take health care away.

That might be one of the biggest own goals in the history of politics. Devastating and the perfect metaphor for GOP policies. That hasn’t hit the greater populace yet. I have a tough time believing it’s real also. But if it is.....damning.

To be fair, it's only the first couple of pages.  I doubt that it's truly a blank book.  There's no other pictures showing anything beyond that so I think this is probably nothing.

I agree. I don't believe that book is really blank.  No one could be that stupid.  Don't get me wrong.  They are very stupid and I have no doubt that all those pages on stage to declare the divestiture were blank.  But you don't hand someone a book and not expect them to at least leaf through it.

Heck, even ad agency folks are smart enough to throw in some Lorem ipsum text.  Plus with mail-in voting already begun it would wrong for 60 minutes to keep this to themselves until Sunday evening.  At the very least CBS should be promoting the interview with "Why did a Trump administration official hand Lesley Stahl a blank book that was purported to contain the administration's work on healthcare.  Tune in Sunday night to find out."

Of course this is, what, the third time they have tried to pass off blank papers as actual documents?  This is something aliens would do. Like their eye sight can't see the print on the paper so they think humans are just really impressed with paper itself.

I'm going to go ahead and push all in before the flop.

Whitlock’s journey the last few years has been ... interesting. 
 

And now he is working for professional troll Clay Travis.

I guess it says something when an 18-year Trump Org employee releases a book detailing racist statements made by our President and it hardly is a blip on the news cycle. 

https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2020-10-16/new-book-by-former-trump-aide-reveals-early-racist-comments

She recalled Trump berating her when he spotted a Black worker on a construction site.

“Get him off there right now,” he said, “and don’t ever let that happen again. I don’t want people to think that Trump Tower is being built by Black people.”

Trump turned red-faced when she brought a young Black job applicant into the lobby of another building, she wrote.

“Barbara, I don’t want Black kids sitting in the lobby where people come to buy million-dollar apartments!”

Res wrote that Trump hired a German residential manager, believing his heritage made him “especially clean and orderly,” and then joked in front of Jewish executives that “this guy still reminisces about the ovens, so you guys better watch out for him.”

Trump and his campaign often pointed to Res during the 2016 election as an example of his progressive history of hiring and promoting women. But during her 18-year tenure, she wrote, Trump talked frequently and graphically about women’s looks and his own sexual exploits — and forced Res to fire a woman because she was pregnant and bar her own secretary from important meetings because she did not look like a model.

I don't even know what's going on anymore.  Why would they do that?  It's not like it's a good look for him.  They just want to get it out there ASAP so people can see it and forget about it?

It's all about crafting a narrative that the media is unfair, that he's a victim, and that everyone is out to get him.

That would work if he didn't spend every waking moment antagonizing the media, or even people who dare disagree with him. Kinda hard to feel bad for him when he starts the fight pretty much every time.

Maybe the information is on the bottom edge of each page.  You know, where as you flip through the pages, you see the action?

I ran for two different offices. I did some research on how to be a candidate. I learned to never, ever do a live interview without knowledge of the questions beforehand.

Trump barely prepares and usually wings it. When he doesn't, Trump comes off as an automaton.

I have no idea how Trump will react with a cut mic.

Quote

 

A Dutch security researcher says he accessed President Trump’s @realDonaldTrump Twitter account last week by guessing his password: “maga2020!”.

Victor Gevers, a security researcher at the GDI Foundation and chair of the Dutch Institute for Vulnerability Disclosure, which finds and reports security vulnerabilities, told TechCrunch he guessed the president’s account password and was successful on the fifth attempt.

The account was not protected by two-factor authentication, granting Gevers access to the president’s account.

After logging in, he emailed US-CERT, a division of Homeland Security’s cyber unit Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), to disclose the security lapse, which TechCrunch has seen. Gevers said the president’s Twitter  password was changed shortly after.

It’s the second time Gevers has gained access to Trump’s Twitter account.

The first time was in 2016, when Gevers and two others extracted and cracked Trump’s password from the 2012 LinkedIn breach. The researchers took his password — “yourefired” — his catchphrase from the television show The Apprentice — and found it let them into his Twitter account. Gevers reported the breach to local authorities in the Netherlands, with suggestions on how Trump could improve his password security. One of the passwords he suggested at the time was “maga2020!” he said. Gevers said he “did not expect” the password to work years later.

 

I wonder if Trump changed it back to "yourefired".
