      Wow.

      As the saying goes, “You ain’t never lied.” His ugliness is laid bare for the world to see.

      Thank you for this eye opener, Chiparoo.

        It’s amazing Nerdy. It’s from Gogglebox, one of my fave shows, it just shows British families watching TV, ranging from the serious to the silly. It was the tone of the that news report that was so striking, it captured all the hate and menace at Trump rallies, which we so rarely see on US news. And then the reaction of those families, they were just horrified. And Trump boasts that the whole world is talking about him. Indeed, but not too positively.

        As the young man said, “This is a picture of Hell”. I had to watch this twice. The world is watching all of this.

    Watching Lawrence with Donald at AIPAC say he will move the capital of Israel to Jerusalem. He got a standing ovation there. Do they not recognize pandering? LO’D said Trump read his speech of the Teleprompter showing he knew the audience knew more than he did. He supposedly said a couple things wrong for this group at the earlier press conference when he was talking off the cuff. Oh yeah one was to quit giving Israel money.

    Thank you chips and NW – amazing coverage today. Looking at all those pictures – everyone is always smiling when around POTUS & FLOTUS – they bring happiness with them wherever they go.

  16. March 21, 2016 at 11:46 pm

    Thankful to the Nth Degree to Chipsticks and Nerdywonka for this dazzling parade of photos, stories and quotations from this historic and profound journey in progress. We are blessed to infinity to have POTUS in charge. We are blessed to infinity to have you two to document and share the story and the images all along the way. What a joy and fascinating time this is, to have our beautiful First Family reaching across the divide of past disagreements to create a bridge to connect Cuba and her people to the world community. Another gift, free and from the heart. .

    CNN is pushing this headline:

        As usual – the media takes everything a dem says out of context. Put the blame where it belongs.

          Nope, this is typical of clintons drama. Say something stupid without thinking and then try to walk it back. They are not novices when it comes to fifth columnist media and yet they act like one.

          And even assuming that he meant the rethugs, how his wife will be better at overcoming the rethugs, given their long history with the rethugs. He should have been talking about electing more dem cong critters so that his wife can push past the past 8 years of rethug burn it to the grounds tactics.

    GE TODville.

    Thanks a million, NerdyW for the fabulous photos, videos and links in this thread! And for live-tweeting PBO’s and Raul Castro’s press conference.

    Stupendous job, kudos for providing such wonderful and timely info. πŸ™‚

    Isaac Devore seems to have done a 180 on this trip — don’t know if Trump has knocked some sense in him, but his articles this week have few if any #BlameObama snarks and barbs.
