"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'”

There's a latin phrase for this but it just won't come to me. Jumpy and pro quo?

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

President Trump’s strategy is to call Biden a criminal and tells a reporter he is a criminal for not reporting it. How does that kind of nonsense work for anyone beyond his base? For that matter how does it even work for his base? Actually he  is trying to say AG Barr is just too nice of a guy to arrest Biden. Wake up America, how is this race even close in some states? For all those close to Trump when this election is over, win or lose, for President Trump’s sake, seek psychiatric help for him.

Biden will listen to scientists!!! Is the weirdest put down I may have ever heard.  Yet people think we shouldn't listen to them.

No I'm not a liberal democrat

Boy that is nothing short of hitting below the belt and dirty pool. “ Trump/Pence 2020 Make Earth Flat Again”

Apparently there was some drama while President Trump was taping his 60 Minutes interview today. He abruptly ended his solo interview after around 45 minutes & did not return for a scheduled walk & talk he was supposed to tape with Pence

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.

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.

I mean...CMONNNN. Are we all being trolled? There’s no way this is all real. Am I in a coma right now??
 

You have to look at the pics in the link, it’s hilarious.

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.

It's not breaking any new ground, that's why.

There was an awesome quote comparing Trump to the Dallas Cowboys. Anybody know which thread it is in?
