Obese man whose wife shivers at the thought of seeing him naked, much less doing things to her, was at a podium telling a protester that he has a weight problem.


The irony is, this "overweight" person is actually a Trump supporter that volunteered to escort the protesters out.

No doubt it was the thrill of his month that he got to escort out a protestor.
That's surely what he was hoping for when he showed up.
Sad.

We know it's not chess (of any number of dimensions) and we know it's not even checkers. What game is this this man playing?

I accidentally opened this thread to page 1, saw what the issues of the day were in 2017, and got interested thinking how they have evolved over the last 2+ years. I recommend anyone here go back throughout this thread to random points and read what the topic of the day was.

What I took away from doing such is that we're being intentionally kept off balance with a gish gallop style of news and scandal and we are being spun and spun until we open our eyes and we're in the same exact place. Except tired and nauseous.


Edit: just as a taste, in July 2017, some of the topics were Steve Bannon, Mooch, Kelly-Anne Conway lying, Sebastian Gorka resigning, transgender ban in military, Joe Arpaio pardoned. Seems a lifetime ago

There is social media world and the real world. Social media operates on synthetic chaos and confrontation - nobody is more aware of this then Trump, But the real world is pretty calm- no riots like in Hong Kong; no yellow vests like in France; little mass demonstrating; campuses are comatose.

I guess we've gotten the answer to the question of whether or not this White House ever "settled in": no.

Media in the U.S. occupies a weird space because it's BIG enterprise (run by 6 corporations) and information. It has the dual role of providing news/information but media as an institution protects the interest of those in power. It also operates a business, primarily through advertising.

This combo brings a dysfunctional duality of maxing out profits and still do the official function of information. Guess which side won?

The thing is, in a largely unregulated field (cable unregulated, Fairness Act and Equal Time Act done) so let the profiteering began. Les Moonves, now deposed grabby CEO, said it straight, "Trump might be bad for the country but he's great for (media) business." Those asswipes don't give a F about democracy...they're making money!

Rupert Murdoch and News Corps/Fox News figured this out and added division, hate and plain lies to goose the system. They're leveraging media/money with power. They have screwed democracy in both the U.S., Australia and the UK. They've been doing it for 20 years and it's all documented.

So yes, the public has been gaslighted on purpose. The media plays it for profit...and we swallow, wondering if and how the shttstorm known as Trump will end. The destruction of norms, laws and standards is real...but gad damn it, ti's business. We're making money so **** OFF.

And BTW, the Russkies didn't help, but they've had major aid in the U.S., like the Senate Majority Leader, Moscow Mitch...Putin's b*tch. Yes...have a nice day you motherfcckers.

Republicans, are you too dumb to see T's latest lie for what it is or are you just too self-interested to care when he inflicts damage on our democracy?

"Trump accuses Google of election fraud citing right-wing conspiracy site, claiming victory over Clinton was 'even bigger than thought.'"

I guess there wasn't enough room on the NYT front page to mention that Trump is now saying he will bail out Tim Apple from the trade war Trump started. I'm not sure Trump has connected the dots, but what he's doing is taxing US consumers (because he thinks that hurts China) and then taking that money collected from consumers and giving it (and then some more) back to a wealthy fraction of the US companies whose sales have decreased.

Maybe, and this is just me spitballing, he should just get out of the way instead of picking winners and losers based on whoever last spoke to him or whatever and just let the efficient market function without his clumsy interference. Once he finally figures it out he will probably shut down the tariffs and then claim that Obama put the tariffs in place to harm Trump's economy and that we should praise Trump for allowing free trade to commence. And republicans will lap it up.

NYT reporting deficit will reach $1 Trillion by next year.

Also Trump's payroll tax cut and more tax cuts for the rich...not likely to help in a recession.

The fabulous economy might take a dump on Trump.

Humility is hard when you know yourself like Great Leader.

'President Trump went on Twitter on Wednesday to quote a conservative radio host and known conspiracy theorist who praised him as "the greatest President for Jews" and claimed that Israelis "love him like he is the second coming of God."

In his tweets, Trump thanked Wayne Allyn Root for "the very nice words."'

Remove this cult leader (and man who basks in the glory of being referred to as the "second coming of God") from office by EOD, with or without a straightjacket.

"Republicans also denounced and ridiculed the Obama administration's efforts at fiscal stimulus, which included payroll tax cuts intended to raise workers' incomes and lead to higher spending. Trump's 2017 tax cut basically bypassed ordinary workers, giving big tax breaks to corporations instead, on the theory that these tax cuts would trickle down to the middle class. Now the Trump administration is basically admitting that trickle-down isn't working and that Obama-style stimulus is actually the right way to go." Paul Krugman

tRump mentioned Obama 20 times in 30 minutes today during one of his high pitched hysterical rants to the press corps in front of the POTUS copter. It gives rise to the question:

Does Obama have his own rent free room in tRump's lard filled head or does he have to share it with Hillary?

Every night he wakes up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat and sees Obama standing at the podium at the Correspondent's Dinner laughing at him. Hilary is in the audience pointing and laughing at him and that furry animal on top of his head that he calls hair.

...and Don Lemon and Wolf Blitzer still have visions of Larry Wilmore tearing those two pompous a$$es new bung holes in 2016. I thought Larry killed it that night. When a Roast makes you say OUCH! that is a "to the bone" score. It was Punk Rock all the way.

The Idiot in Chief is an insane maladjusted two year-old who has taken great offense to Denmark saying in no uncertain terms that Greenland is not for sale. Somebody needs to put him on a timeout until he can play with others without insulting them and if that doesn't work then he needs his ass spanked. The adult leaders of the world seem like they have had enough of this spoiled and entitled brat that is now leader of a once trusted and revered partner in the world. Who acts like this?

He is now also acting like Russia has told him to go out and make a case for readmitting us to the G8 despite all the crap that they have done to the world. They just got done blowing themselves up with a nuclear power plant in a rocket and then turned off the nuclear monitoring stations to avoid detection of the radioactive cloud that they created and was on the move across their boarder to neighboring countries. Should they really be admitted?
