    Rick Wilson wrote the book “Everything Trump Touches Dies”. There needs to be another book…”Everything Trump Touches Turns To Shit”. And yes…it smells bad. Very, very bad

    His Blubbership:
    “Joint Chief’s Chairman no idea if Trump’s “whimpering and crying” claim true or not.” (Raw Story)
    And: “Trump continues to mishandle sensitive national security information.” (Benen)
    Courtney Kube on Maddow reported last night that many things Trump said were highly classified or tactically sensitive”. And he does this while griping about imaginary leaks.
    –thoughts:
    Trump glorifying hisself for FIFTY minutes (PBO spoke NINE minutes on Bin Laden)
    may’ve been his attempt to look like the boss of the operation (even while golfing).
    Despots have typically depicted themselves as large and powerful over the ‘enemy’. e.g.The Egyptian pharaohs are portrayed as standing high up on the chariot wielding a bow twice the size of the Nubians, who are groveling in the dust at their feet. In reality the Nubians were probably quite a lot taller than them. The ancient world includes Assyrian kings, Mayan lords, and Moche lords who portrayed themselves this way with the victim whimpering and begging for mercy.

    We know about Trump’s magical thinking and his family guru Norman Vincent Peale:
    (https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/10/13/donald-trump-positive-thinking-215704)
    So with the power of fake presidency he appoints a self-help ‘illuminati” author to the Federal Education Board. Imo the Ring understands about deluded trump playing god, straight up fkn lies, national security risks be damned, and what it is actually all about= how rich and nasty one can possibly be.

    Just finish listening to Michelle and her brother Craig. I enjoy them so much. Gosh she was a great First Lady and I wish she and President Barack Obama were still in the White House. But they serve their time and it’s time for them to move on to bigger and better things. The Obama Center look like it will be wonderful for Chicago.

        CA Gov Gavin Newsome must be thanked & Praised. Once CA moved, I knew this will be done. AL, GA, MS, etc all these College Football & Basketball power Houses in the South will stop attracting great players if they don’t change. What angers me is that some college coaches make $9M. That is insane. That is wrong. This will eventually help cut the price tags for Coaches who make far more than those running the Universities.

      PBO shared the stage with a lot of insight, took lots of questions and personal stories, shot through with fall about funny. One of his images for the Center is a beacon emitting light. And am seeing our young people everywhere, their footsteps lit up by our fave couple.

    Every now and then I peek at trump’s twitter feed, so you don’t have to. He hasn’t tweeted in 9 hours. Yay.

    Must be having a meltdown. Or planning on outing a whistleblower or a national security operation. Ugh.

      Mole inside Baghdadi’s hideaway had a key role in raid’s success, officials say

      The extraordinarily well-placed informant within the Islamic State facilitated Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s movements around Syria and helped oversee construction work on his Syrian safehouse, according to U.S. and Middle East-based officials knowledgeable about the operation.
      The informant was present during the assault on the compound in Syria, and he was exfiltrated from the region two days later, along with his family. The man, whose nationality had not been revealed, is expected to receive some or all of the $25 million bounty that had been placed on Baghdadi’s head, according to the officials.

        I know it’s a little thing in all this insanity, but I’m a DOG PERSON. For this slimy, pathetic vomit-bag to mention a dog, after all his endless derisive …….uh f*ck. Like you said: CAN’T WAIT TIL ITS GONE.

          The thing I liked most about Joe Biden’s posting a pic of HIS dog mentioning having a dog in the WH – on National Dog Day, reminding us of Bo and Sunny and all the other WH pets – was that to me he was throwing shade at the imbecile’s posting of the pic of the intel dog yesterday or whenever the f*ck he did it. “It” in the WH hates dogs, probably because they all go after his ankles.

      Love this song. Best version I ever heard was a particular college group singing it a capella – found it on you tube a hundred years ago and never could relocate it. But, whoever’s singing it, you are right – it’s the best one to play! Keep it at the ready!

    • 82 jacquelineoboomer
      October 30, 2019 at 1:34 am

      This isn’t the a capella version I found years ago – and it’s a high school group – but love this, too. I might keep it handy for the Big Day. Thanks for the reminder.
