Of all the arseholes on (or formerly on) the Trump bandwagon I think Nunberg is my new favourite. That is some absolutely top grade melting down. I look forward to hearing more from this man, although I suspect it's going to be tough to top this effort.


Is 'Nunberg' the way GWB would pronounce 'Nothingburger'?

As in, "Yo, Blair, so ya think these WMDs in Iraw a a nunberg or what?"

Have the anti-trumpers been able to give the Orange one some credit on his "conversation with a GOP rep about the NRA and gun purchasing age yet?

Some of the things he's said about gun control are a very small step in the right direction, sure.

But there are a couple of qualifiers of course -

1 - He's a compulsive liar and you can't accept any assurances or claims at face value.
2 - The gun control debate is so f'ed up that even if he had a genuine desire to do something (and I don't believe he has any desire to do anything that doesn't directly benefit him) he'd probably by stymied by the GOP & NRA lobbyists. It would take a great deal of dedication, patience and will for a president to actually achieve something meaningful on that front and while Trump has a great deal of will, he has miniscule levels of the other two attributes.

Yeah, see that's so over the top and reactive that you can basically just dismiss it as Blowhard Trump talking shit again. It's essentially worthless because it's entirely a reaction to whatever he heard in the meeting or just beforehand and he'll change his mind 5 minutes later.

A quick google suggests he's already said something entirely different in another meeting.

Make America Filthy Again!

Puts me in mind of what Doc Holliday says in Tombstone.

Quote:
A man like Ringo has a great empty hole through the middle of him. He can never kill enough, or steal enough, or inflict enough pain to ever fill it.


And what's worse is that is it far, far easier to destroy regulations than it is to reinstate them given the depth of the pockets of those who are affected in the two scenarios.

Pure scum. History will judge them in the harshest fashion.

Michael "I'm a cünt" Cohen has also been whinging that he has yet to be reimbursed for the 130K he paid Stormy last year.

It's certainly working out nicely for the likes of the Mercers and the Kochs in their quest for oligarchy.

That's the same story the 3 guys at CNN got fired for around this time last year. Lead to the Trump slamming CNN meme. They were fired for process errors. Dragonkhan was disgusted iirc.

So over the last seven days or so the 'non chaotic just energetic' POTUS has:

    Announced tariffs which will probably spark a trade war with the EU, China and Canada. and then antogonised those countries/blocs via twitter
    Had his communications director resign
    Found out that his Head of Middle East Peace (and every other portfolio) has been downgraded in his security clearance
    been sued by a porn star
    had his chief economic adviser resign
    had a twitter spat with 'Alex' Bladwin
    Held a very productive meeting with lawamakers on guns, where he said he would take away peoples guns where necessary cause he wasn't afraid of the NRA, and then back tracked after a meeting with the NRA
    Had a former adviser have a nervous breakdown on TV over the Mueller investigation

and that was just in the last week, but there is no chaos in the Whitehouse - just great energy.

In a few years time, looking back at all this not-chaos, it's going to see unbelievable that some of these huge stories with massive international ramifications can be so easily overlooked, just because of the sheer quantity of shit going down.

Hopefully.

You kind of have to admire his ability to divert everyone with a couple of tweets. But yes, it's mostly down to the sheer volume of boot-filling. Nobody can keep track.

He also got North and South Korea confused.

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2018/03/trump-confuses-north-and-south-korea.html

Easy mistake to make, I guess.

Quote:
The claim that Trump had spoken with North Korea confounded foreign policy observers. “It was not clear whether Trump was describing a direct conversation or messages sent through diplomatic channels,” reported the Washington Post.

The answer turns out to be: neither. Trump was describing a conversation with South Korea. An official from the National Security Council tells Yonhap News Agency, a South Korean publication, that Trump “was referring to his March 1 phone call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.” So Trump was close, geographically, but instead of describing a breakthrough exchange with the totalitarian enemy that is developing nukes and threatening to kill us, he was describing the democratic ally that has no nukes and is trying not to be killed.

Trump was right that it was a Korea, but he had the wrong one. There are so many Koreas these days, it is hard to keep track.

Easy mistake to make, I guess.

Quote:
The claim that Trump had spoken with North Korea confounded foreign policy observers. “It was not clear whether Trump was describing a direct conversation or messages sent through diplomatic channels,” reported the Washington Post.

The answer turns out to be: neither. Trump was describing a conversation with South Korea. An official from the National Security Council tells Yonhap News Agency, a South Korean publication, that Trump “was referring to his March 1 phone call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.” So Trump was close, geographically, but instead of describing a breakthrough exchange with the totalitarian enemy that is developing nukes and threatening to kill us, he was describing the democratic ally that has no nukes and is trying not to be killed.

Trump was right that it was a Korea, but he had the wrong one. There are so many Koreas these days, it is hard to keep track.


FFS - to think 30 years ago Dan Quayle had his presidential hopes dashed by misspelling potato and 15 years ago Howard Dean was seen as too unstable because he got a bit excited at a campaign rally.

The prophecies of Mike Judge have come to fruition and the Idiocracy is upon us
