Quote:

President Donald J. Trump has launched yet another attack on CNN anchor Chris Cuomo as he hinted at more bombshell recordings of his former personal attorney Michael Cohen with "other media scum reporters".

Speaking to Cohen in the leaked tapes, Cuomo allegedly revealed he was accused of touching a woman in an elevator.

"Fredos got a convicted lier (sic) for a lawyer, who may be going back to jail for an even longer time - additional lies to Congress," Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. "Many more tapes of him with Fredo and other media scum reporters. Reveals how deranged & sick they all are!"

Bombshell recording of the alleged conversation was revealed by Fox News host Tucker Carlson during his show last month.

The "Cuomo Prime Time" host was heard in the controversial footage complaining that news reporters were looking for skeletons in his closet. "You know, I'm always careful when I talk to media, you know?" Cuomo said in the audiotape released last Tuesday. "Right," Cohen responded.

Cuomo continued, "Do you know how many f----- phone calls I've gotten from people at ABC who say that reporters are calling and lying about things they heard about me to try to get stories about me when I was at ABC? Guys calling and saying, 'I heard he's the Charlie Rose of ABC, used to invite women to the hotel and open up his bathrobe.' Do I look like the kind of f----- guy who's gotta do that?"

"Sure. Why not?" Cohen quipped.

A thorough write-up of the Trump Boat Parade fiasco on Lake Travis.

Key points:

Boats were travelling too fast (or too slow), making large wake.

Boats were stacked single file in an out-and-back parade route, maximizing constructive interference of the large wake to make mega-waves.

Basically, these boaters have no idea how to drive their own boats. It was doomed to fail from the start, as the planned route and speed was inherently dangerous.

BOAT PARADE!

https://ftalphaville.ft.com/2020/09/...-wrong-speed-/

Quote:

Alphaville does, however, have an opinion on how to run a political boat parade: at either very high or very low speeds, in open water, and not in single file. The Trump boat parade on Saturday in Texas failed to do these things, and ended up fighting an opponent more formidable than any Democrat: physics.

Quote:

Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a right-wing member of the Norwegian parliament, has nominated Donald Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for his role in brokering a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News on Wednesday.
Take that, Obama.

Trumpkins don't have no time for pesky things like facts or physics. Rallies can be held without social distancing or masks, and boat parades can be held without regards to maritime safety. Safety protocols are for elitist Democrats.

It's like a South Park parody of Trump and his cult.

dmaker 9th September 2020 08:16 AM

Who is Christian Tybring-Gjedde?

Rough notes from wiki: a member of the right wing Progress Party; anti-immigration; comes from a wealthy family....

" Tybring-Gjedde was a civil servant before he entered politics. While described by commentators as far-right and anti-immigration,[1] he identifies himself as a classical liberal, particularly on economic issues and advocates limited government intervention, reduced public spending, and tax reduction.[3] More conservative and outspoken on social and cultural issues, Tybring-Gjedde has stoked controversy on numerous occasions,[4] and has been described as a national conservative.[5] He believes immigration policy to be the single most important political issue facing Norwegian society"

"He is currently estranged from his parents after a dispute over his divorce from his first wife. He is reported to have forfeited millions of NOK from the family business due to this. According to him, he is financially cut off from his original inheritance, although his father refuted this in 2013.[35] He has said that he has not met or spoken to his father for several years, and that he is open about his family having "many issues"

For his new book, Bob Woodward has taped interviews of Trump saying in February that he knows covid will be deadly, even when he's publicly claiming it will disappear, and more.
Quote:

Aside from exploring Trump’s handling of the pandemic, Woodward’s new book, “Rage,” covers race relations, diplomacy with North Korea and a range of other issues that have arisen during the past two years.

The book also includes brutal assessments of Trump’s conduct from former defense secretary Jim Mattis, former director of national intelligence Daniel Coats and others.

The book is based in part on 18 on-the-record interviews Woodward conducted with the president between December and July. Woodward writes that other quotes in the book were acquired through “deep background” conversations with sources in which information is divulged and exchanges recounted without sources being named.

CNN just played some of the tapes. Trump can deny he said these things that he said on tape, and some will believe him. Charles Barkley was once "misquoted" when he said something on tape.

If it hasn't happened already - a split-screen with Trump's words on one side, and Trump's words on the other side, on the same days, saying opposite things, could be interesting.

A Norwegian parliamentary representative from the right wing/libertarian/anti-immigration Progress Party.

Probably the mainstream politician furthest to the right since Quisling.

I probably don't need to say more.

The Progress Party is the party furthest to the right in Norwegian mainstream politics. But compared to a lot of far right parties in the rest of Europe, they're somewhat moderate.

Tybring-Gjedde, from Oslo Progress Party, is one of the biggest advocates of taking the party further right, making it a "patriotic lighthouse".

This has taken Oslo Progress Party from being one of the biggest parties in the capital, to hovering around 5%. Those of us who are not very fond of the Progress Party wish him the best in changing the rest of his party.

Needless to say, people like him absolutely adore Trump.

ETA: He said he made the announcement on Fox News because Norwegian media are lying lamestream fake news.

Well, is this gonna be the thing that topples The PDJT? (I doubt it, but I can hope.)
But it's been a heck of a week, with the denigration of the service members and this revelation that he knew and was actually privately concerned about Covid-19.

That press conference with his Press Secretary was sad and laughable. I'm glad the reporters are strongly using the word "lie" without reservation now.

I did wonder that myself. I'm also amazed that he was able to keep leaks from happening weeks ahead of time.

The most striking thing is being able to hear the actual audio of the interviews. No getting around that for factual presentation! (But I'm sure Fox News and other idiots will do it somehow.) We also seem to be hearing more from actual people, rather than anonymous sources. I like the attribution to Dr. Fauci saying "His (Trump's) attention span is like a minus." Perhaps it's time to up his odds for removal in the White House Survivor thread.

Actually, believe it or not, Charles Barkley claimed he was "misquoted" in his own autobiography. Still sounds like something Trump would say, too.
