I read today that Tucker Carlson was saying on his show that he's rooting for Russia over the Ukraine. So maybe he'll be next in line for a chance to please Trump.

I honestly have no idea. I guess towards the end of his show he said it was for the lulz but he has to know that even that is sketchy as hell. It *shouldn't* be well received, and for what it's worth I think I saw it on Newsweek. So at least a right leaning publication is talking about it.

Sometimes you have to lift the level of trolling to get out of the monotony of everyday trolling.

Oh but this is delicious. Melania and Ivanka are at odds. Will one have to go? Will Trump have to choose between the daughter for whom he has a sexual appetite or the wife who denies his advances?

BTW, the hit film Knives Out has some pretty nasty satiric stabs (no pun intended) at Trump supporters.
And the major Trump supporter in the film is played by the actor who was the psych Prohibition agent in "Boardwalk Empire" and was Zod in "Man Of Steel".

I think Duncan Hunter, one of the first GOP congressmen to support Trump, will be gone frm the House by Christmas after his convicntion on corruption charges.
