      😀 😀 You fortunate one! Are those dancers at the end {♫♫ Six dancing ♪ ♫ ladies; fi-ive….♫}

      It would seem just the arrival of this book has been doing wonders for the heart and soul of each TODobot, as much as for each recipient. I wonder if Pete has a clue how much *therapy* he has been unknowingly dispensing? 🙂 🙂

      I got mine and I cried as I looked at the pictures. I just want to crawl in the book and go back to those times.

      Congratulations, Gail! I am trying to hold off and buy it when Pete comes to Portland in early January for a book talk so I can get it signed. Of course, if one of my darling children gets it for me for Christmas, then all bets are off. 🙂

    You guys who have received yours previously have not mentioned how big & Heavy it is.
    I too am turning it over and over in my hands, not ready to peel off the plastic.

    Thanks Pete Souza ❤️

    When I got mine, my heart just started hammering. It IS heavy, heavy with goodness, truth, beauty…..I cry when I look at some of the pictures remembering such good times. I still haven’t gone through all of it…..I want treasures to anticipate.

        She will be on between 10 and 12 Eastern time, between9 and 11 Central time, and I don’t know the Pacific time schedule. I just saw a brief blip, but there she stood between the two hosts smiling big!

      Can’t stand this guy ever since he held that stupid self-serving rally on GOTV weekend years ago.

      All these comedians really make me gag. I guess I’ve lost my sense of humor because I don’t find their jokes about our horrid government funny. Fluffing Trump’s hair (Fallon) or inviting Sean Spicer to the Emmy’s (Colbert) or kissing him at the after party (Corden) – not funny.

    yup. stop wasting money on stupid ads disproportionately. the rate of return on that is pretty dismal.

    • 41 FoxfireTX
      November 10, 2017 at 10:34 pm

      Exactly. The $10 mil being spent on ads to impeach DT–which is never going to happen with a R Congress–could go so far toward overcoming voter suppression efforts, registering new voters and GOTV. I don’t understand the rationale. To me, it is a huge waste of money that could be better spent getting folks to the polls.

    Have to go bathe my brain after reading this, but I wanted to see if Roy Moore had any daughters … turns out he had two and he has four granddaughters. Somebody ought to check on them, after this week’s charges, and I’m being serious. Also from this story about his wife:

    “She also competed in Miss Alabama USA and Miss Alabama World pageants as a teen.”

    Why are we not surprised?

    • November 11, 2017 at 6:44 am


      It makes me ill to see this clown fawning over Xi and Putin. His intentions couldn’t be any clearer: self-enrichment. If you think his conflicts of interest are egregious now, just wait until he leaves office and starts to unfold and cash in on all the emoluments he’s attained while in office, including all those Chinese trademarks. UGH UGH UGH

      One of my favorite movies to watch is “Nixon” by Oliver Stone. It was fascinating to watch the disintegration of Nixon’s inner circle.

    Have a good morning TOD’ers.

    I can’t understand the Americans who still support PP … but if the Deplorable still support him, they need to pass a test first.
    They ought to leave their female relatives / friends etc ALONE in the company of the likes of PP, Moore …. then again nothing would surprise me. They may just offer up their daughters sister wives and mothers as offerings!

    I watched Dunkirk yesterday. It was so intense and sad. I can’t understand what drives humanity in general to start war and oppression. It is all senseless and needless.

    I wish communities around the world would choose to live in peace and harmony.

      I am more convince that Trump is a mental case or Putin has something on him. Do you really think Putin, who murder people who disagree with him, who throw people in jail who disagree with him, is going to admit that he interfered in our election.

      • November 11, 2017 at 9:51 am

        Make America Great Again by bowing down to Vladimir Putin. Trump has attack everyone under the sun, he has lied on people, but he has not said one bad word about Putin, not one. Strange isn’t it.

    Just going to leave this here


    President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin did not discuss alleged election meddling on Saturday, despite Trump saying they did, according to Putin’s office.

    “No,” Putin’s press secretary Dmitri Peskov told CNN when asked, “as far as you know, did the two leaders discuss meddling?”

    Trump and Putin met on the sidelines of the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders’ Meeting in Vietnam.

    When asked about his meeting with Putin, Trump told reporters on Air Force One that Putin denied attempting to influence the 2016 presidential election.

    “I just asked him again,” Trump said. “He said he absolutely did not meddle in our election, he did not do what they are saying he did.”

    Trump said he wasn’t going to argue with Putin about whether he did or didn’t seek to meddle.

    “I can’t stand there and argue with him, I would rather have him get out of Syria,” Trump said. “You have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he has nothing to do with that. Now, you are not going to get into an argument, you are going to start talking about Syria and the Ukraine.”

      WOW, so on a Saturday morning the CIA has to come out and refute what the President of the United States has to say about Russian election interference.
