Tiffany's not the one Trump thinks is hot and he wouldn't date her even if she weren't his daughter.

Skeptic Ginger 31st August 2019 04:37 PM

That fat-ass Trump has a lot of nerve. He's seriously overweight, Tiffany isn't though
maybe she needs a stylist.

Tiffany Trump’s Easter Outfit 2019

I might use a stylist if I had the money for one. I can't pick out clothes.

So ... no change?

From what little is reported on her, she stays away from daddy even though she lives in town and attends Georgetown Law School.

This is the guy who mocked a man at one of his recent rallies for being overweight. His self-awareness is nonexistent.

Jason Greenblatt resigns. Trump's envoy for the Middle East.

"More time with family" line is probably true - he has six kids.

And after being in that job a bit I suppose he knows better than most how quickly their childhood may be over.

Bolton has been fired.

Edit: and the Whitehouse today stated that Bolton was supposed to be at a press briefing with Pompeo and Mnuchin, today.

As much as I dislike Bolton it terrifies me that Trump doesn't listen to anyone that disagrees with him. It should terrify everyone.

It's still good one less war hawk is whispering in his ear.

But I think is also indicates Trump continues to deteriorate.

Unless of course he replaces Bolton with Elliott Abrams (as another poster suggested), who was one of the ones who pushed for the Iraq war.

That's it. The voices in his head will win more and more leading to poorer and poorer outcomes. We have a Stephen King villain running the show.

Next week is where Trump promises die.

Gotta go to Alabama to have nurses and doctors swoon over him at some hospital overrun with casualties, and get through infrastructure week, and finish the wall, and then there might be another Rapist Terrorist Syphillis Muslim caravan coming from some Mexican country.

Or the Bahamas. Some very bad people coming from there.

Other than "Muslim" that could describe him hosting a party at one of his resorts.

Trump: You're fired!
Bolton: No, I quit last night.

Trump: Fired!

I used to think the Pennywise the CLown was King's most frightening creation, but since 2016 I think it's Greg Stillson in "The Dead Pool".

And Trump will fight and beat that dead horse like Neegan with his spiked baseball bat until even after it's nothing but gooey blood clots. This will make SharpieGate's hurricane look like a small sneeze.

dudalb 10th September 2019 12:37 PM

I hope that Bolton took a page from J Edgar Hoovers book, and kept detailed notes at all the dirt he saw happening in the Trump White House.

That's not how you do it. You write a letter of resignation, that's scathing towards the President, and he only learns of it through media and twitter because he doesn't read, so he'll receive the letter and then praise you, and then have to come back later to fire you, looking really stupid :thumbsup: .

dudalb 10th September 2019 01:26 PM

I see that "You can't fire me! I quit" is getting to be routine in the Trump administration.

Norman Alexander 10th September 2019 01:28 PM

Bolton, you're fired!

How the **** has she managed to be the daughter of a wannabe POTUS and so successfully stay ouf of the spotlight? Mind blown.

dudalb 10th September 2019 01:29 PM

Bolton might be screwed in one way;The "Never Trump" conservatives are not going to welcome him with open arms because BOlton joined the Trump Administration so late in the game.after Trump had revealed what he was.

He's 70 years old. This was almost certainly his last meaningful government job no matter how he came in or went out.

Trump is older.

More like this...

dudalb 10th September 2019 03:44 PM

I was right. Max Boot and Jennifer Rubin two of the biggest conservative critics of Trump, are more or less saying Bolton got what he deserved by agreeing to work with Trump. Their columns had zero sympathy for Bolton.

Craig4 10th September 2019 04:15 PM

I'm guessing Bolton and The Mooch are going to find that they have a lot to talk about.

Crossbow 10th September 2019 06:02 PM

Quite. They're both determined to stay "in the game", and pulling together is their best hope of doing so.

I have the feeling that it's more likely the other way around. "You can't quit, you're fired!" is more like a Trump thing to say.

More like "You can't quit until I say you are fired!"

The Great Zaganza 11th September 2019 05:25 AM

Well, the best authority* on the subject of Bolton says that he got fired for being too left-wing.


*Tucker Carlson

I saw that!

Besides that "Bolton is a leftwinger" stuff, I thought it was a good (and extremely funny) Tucker segment.

Is Tucker under the impression that the socialist left appoints government officials, and poor Trump has to suffer them? :confused:

a_unique_person 11th September 2019 05:09 PM

Some people are disappointed that Bolton was sacked. The reason is that even if he was a right wing nut at least he was consistent and predictable so he was a stabilising force on trump. I didn't know if that makes him any better.

I think the idea is that "To a rightwing anarchocapitalist, all government is leftwing, so everything bad any government could ever do is "the left" behaving badly."

lol
