Trump himself not only doesn't know what he's going to do, he doesn't know what he actually has done! He'll sign anything as long as his staff tells him it overturns something Obama did.

Trump Tweets

This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN. Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!

@Scaramucci, who just made a fool of himself as he got taken apart by @SteveHiltonx, only lasted 11 days in his favorite of all time Administration, before being fired for, again, making a fool of himself. Anthony is a loser who begged to come back. I said “No Thanks”.

Wow, Trump really wants his mug on Mount Rushmore. This article made me happy because I know he will eventually die knowing he's not going to be on Mt Rushmore (personally, I think we should dynamite the whole thing).

Tell him his head can be put on Mt Rushmore. On a pike on the top. The rest of him will be burned and the ashes dropped in the Atlantic Ocean.

So now Schumer and Pelosi want to meet to make a deal. Amazing how it all works, isn’t it. Where have they been for the last 4 weeks when they were “hardliners”, and only wanted BAILOUT MONEY for Democrat run states and cities that are failing badly? They know my phone number!

RINO Ben Sasse, who needed my support and endorsement in order to get the Republican nomination for Senate from the GREAT State of Nebraska, has, now that he’s got it (Thank you President T), gone rogue, again. This foolishness plays right into the hands of the Radical Left Dems!

Every comment he makes, every tweet he types, demonstrates his self-involved narcissism and his quid pro quo entitled privilege.
He honestly thinks the entire world owes him. All of us, we owe him.
Trump simply cannot conceive of any action that doesn't benefit him.

Well that's been his experience of how the world works for most, if not all, of his life. Until and unless there are negative consequences for him as a result, he'll continue to think and act this way - he may continue to do so even if there are negative consequences at some point in the future.

I suspect that if polling continues to go badly for Stubby McBonespurs and the republican boot-lickers in congress, that you will see more and more of them 'going rogue' and speaking out against Trump.

All those republicans who voted against impeaching Trump, who voted to confirm Drunky McRapeface, Barr, and the rest of Trump's questionable cabinet picks, and who decided not to oppose his "state of emergency/defund the military to build a wall", will all of a sudden try to position themselves as somehow virtuous republicans, as they try to either save their jobs, or to position themselves in a post-Trump political environment.

Even Moscow Mitch has told senators that its fine for senators to distance themselves from Trump if they are in a tough election fight.

See: CNN

Meanwhile, everyone else on the plant knew Scaramucci was a loser as soon as we saw him. Why did it take the Stable Genius 11 days to figure out what everyone else knew right away?

He can’t imagine negative consequences being the result of his own actions; that’s why he thinks there must be a conspiracy against him.

About Mt Rushmore. Does Trump get that even when the project was started that those presidents were not alive and had been dead for 8 (Theodore Roosevelt) to 128 years? (George Washington). And even Roosevelt hadn't been in office for almost two decades.

It's my understanding that there's no more usable rock on the outcrop.

Why? I generally have positive opinions of the four presidents and it's pretty cool ..and without it there is very little reason to visit South Dakota or even ever to pull over on the Interstate. 383 miles of blah.

We should carve a caricature of Trump, and then blow it up, Swatika-on-the-Reichstag style, during his visit to the unveiling.

You might like him, but I guarantee you were asking why the **** Trump hired him the first time you saw him at an official government function.

True; but how many materials are genuinely useless? Garbage can be recycled. Scrap tires make asphalt, or at least sandals for the deserving poor. Sewage sludge makes fertilizer.

A serious problem like this requires dedicated thought. You go first.

Portland, which is out of control, should finally, after almost 3 months, bring in the National Guard. The Mayor and Governor are putting people’s lives at risk. They will be held responsible. The Guard is ready to act immediately. The Courthouse is secured by Homeland!

Googling "the most useless material on Earth", I discovered:


Protactinium (91)

Quote:
Just below uranium on the periodic table, protactinium does . . . well, not much. It occurs naturally as a result of uranium decay, but it's highly radioactive and toxic.

Use: Protactinium has found one particular niche use: The isotope protactanium-21 is used to date sediments back roughly to 175,000 years ago, owing to its long half-life of 32,760 years.

Highly radioactive and toxic. Virtually useless. Mostly important for sitting there and doing nothing for many, many years. Seems appropriate for the task at hand.

Bit mean about his wives, though, pointing out that it dates old dirt.

Trump Tweets

We have narrowed the Presidential Nomination Acceptance Speech, to be delivered on the final night of the Convention (Thursday), to two locations - The Great Battlefield of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and the White House, Washington, D.C. We will announce the decision soon!


Thank you to Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana for his very smart words on the just signed Executive Orders!

Damn, wish I'd thought of that.

Just a little nightmare scenario for you.

1 Trump will be seen as saviour by a lot of people for issuing the exec order on payment. They will see McConnell thanking Trump and blame the Dems for the delay.

2 Covid has peaked in USA, and rates will continue to fall, at least until the election. He will be smugly claiming to have been right all along.

3 The Dow & NASDAQ will set new records, thereby allowing Trump to praise himself over it.

4 Unemployment will drop by massive amounts by November, allowing him another easy victory to trumpet.

5 Biden stays doing the responsible thing, masked up at home as Trump recommences cheering rallies.

6 Four more years.
