"People who work with Trump say: You can't even organize your own government. How could you possibly organize a conspiracy with Russia? ... He doesn't even have a to-do list, as best I can tell." Bob Woodward, Axios

But the Trump show goes on!
I saw this setup and just had to laugh. In disgust!

Next week, they will be passing out "Trump 2020" signs to the gathered tourists who hope to get on TV during our official press briefers.

All humans experience the impulse to be selfish.
Yet most of us also battle that with a morality clause.

Trumpism says it's okay to give in to our lesser selves.

Oh, the guilty by proxy logical fallacy game for r e t a r d s!

Progressives supported Mussolini = Progressives must be fascists/Mussolini is responsible for Progressive ideology

Do I win any prizes for playing this stupid game?

I'm surprised there's no separate thread on this, but I just saw the NYT cartoon from Thursday that many claim were anti-semitic. It of course garnered more attention after the shooting in SD yesterday.

But the cartoon, depicting Netanyahu as a seeing-eye dog for Trump, struck me as obvious political criticism of 1) Netanyahu's policies and 2) Trump being so dumb as to follow them unquestioningly. It struck me as not making any sort of statement about Jews as people, just like it's not making a statement about Americans as people.

Chomsky is calmly stating what a lot of non-partisans have been saying.

One of them is that Dems are making it easier for Reps with the Russia hysteria and identity politics

He is probably right and tRump will win in 2020...but that doesn't mean tRump isn't a stain on American history or that he didn't sell his country out to Russian influence.
You still have not answered my question about the Alt Right and tRumpism. Your evasive response reminds me of tRump's response to Jake Tapper's question to tRump regarding David Duke's endorsement. tRump replied, "I don't know anything about David Duke. I don't know what you're even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacist. I don't know."

I don't like Netanyahu at all, but he was clearly drawn using anti-semitic stereotypes.

Please walk me through this because I don't see it.

And is all criticism of Isreal/Jews anti-semitic? By definition it can't be, so what for example would a cartoon aiming to criticize Netanyahu and Trump's blind loyalty to him look like that wouldn't deserve wrath?

It would look like Netanyahu without Jewish stereotypes like a big, long nose. I agree with most of what you say here. I was very vocal in my defense of Representative Ilhan Omar against charges of anti-semitism. Were you?

The conniving, scheming Jewish guide dog leading a blind man is ridiculously anti Semitic, employing a lot of historical stereotypes. Inaccurate too. Trump is not being manipulated; he knows exactly what he is doing.

He's a coward. Best we could hope for is a handful of Seconal's and a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue after one of his crying fits.

Maybe he had a good accountant that exploited loopholes to lower his tax bill

Or maybe he just had a really bad decade

Thankfully, he's had several really good decades, making billions of dollars.

If anything, Trump emerging from $1 billion in debt to being worth over $25 billion just shows to go how qualified he is to be president.

All the more reason for him to show his tax returns, as every other Presidential candidate has done for decades.

I believe the applicable adage is: Birds of a feather flock together with regard to this item about tRump's buddy, David Bossie:


Axios revealed in Sunday's Sneak Peek that Bossie used Trump's name to raise $18.5 million for the stated purpose of supporting Trump-aligned candidates. But just $425,442 (or 3%) of the $15.4 million it spent during 2017 and 2018 went to supporting candidates.
