    Is this the funniest Trump story so far? I don't know.

    Trump 'was ready to talk and talk and finally … after 15 minutes' Carper said he turned to Cohn to tell him, 'We’re not going to have a real conversation here — can’t you just tell the president that he is brilliant and say we’re losing ... the connection and then hang up?'

    They are all seriously unnerving. Our president is a moron. His entire cabinet and our congress seems to know that. Therefore foreign leaders also know it. If you were ever going to make moves against the USA, now's the time. And all evidence appears to point to Putin grooming Trump as a foreign asset.

    IT'S ABOUT F%&$%#@ TIME!!!

    The State Department is the mechanism by which our global influence is exerted. Decimating the State Department directly decreases American global power and influence. The result is more conflict, less freedom, fewer human rights, more corruption, across the globe that's exactly what has happened. America's enemies could hardly ask for more than the elimination of the State Department, and that's what Tillerson has been giving them.

    Admittedly, I was OK with Tillerson as a choice in the beginning. He was a proven leader of a global company. A smart professional. Something that was excessively rare in Trumps transition. I was wrong. He has orchestrated a sharp decline in American global influence.

    His reasoning for doing so was inconsistent, and illogical.
    At first he said that he was going to reorganize everything, so there was no need to be fully staffed when he'd be eliminating positions anyway. However the process has taken an excessively long time (the senate in particular is getting fed up) and in the meantime, several global crisis have been exacerbated by the lack of American influence (Yemen's Saudi imposed famine, North Korea, Russia's expanding information war on European democracies). At the same time, he was touring the State Department in attempt to understand how it worked. See the problem? How do you know those positions aren't needed if you don't understand how it works? In the meantime the world is burning.

    Now he is saying that we don't need most of these positions because they will be solving so many of the worlds problems very shortly. Despite the fact that even against a backdrop of increasing global chaos, this statement does not stand out among the machine gun of administration lies, it is still jawdropping in how brazenly it conflicts with world events happening right in front of everyone.

    "A Global Thumbs Down
    A survey across 37 countries asked respondents if they had confidence in the U.S. president to do the right thing regarding world affairs. In all but two countries, the rating given to Barack Obama at the end of his term was higher than that given to Donald J. Trump several months into his presidency."

    But not in Russia!
    The scale of these numbers is un-fu@&ing-believable

    This is a good thing to the know-nothing cult.

    Trump's campaign: Big Macs, screaming fits and constant rivalries | Washington Post

    Elton John blares so loudly on Donald Trump’s campaign plane that staffers can’t hear themselves think. Press secretary Hope Hicks uses a steamer to press Trump’s pants – while he is still wearing them. Trump screams at his top aides, who are subjected to expletive-filled tirades in which they get their “face ripped off.”

    And Trump’s appetite seems to know no bounds when it comes to McDonald’s, with a dinner order consisting of “two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted.”

    The scenes are among the most surreal passages in a forthcoming book chronicling Trump’s path to the presidency co-written by Corey Lewandowski, who was fired as Trump’s campaign manager, and David Bossie, another top aide. The book, “Let Trump Be Trump,” paints a portrait of a campaign with an untested candidate and staff rocketing from crisis to crisis, in which Lewandowski and a cast of mostly neophyte political aides learn on the fly and ultimately accept Trump’s propensity to go angrily off message.

    An old idea with an inglorious past.

    Ostensibly the idea is to match up Prince's assassination squad with a former CIA officer's global network of foreign spies. For profit global assassinations and kidnappings. But its clear from everything we read and see and hear that Trump doesn't trust the United States defense institutions, because they swear loyalty to the US first, and not Trump first. I guess we're jumped the shark, because I'm not surprised by this.

    We already have a Rome-style military budget, and Roman-sized global presence. Our politics has already degenerated into a serve-yourself, country-be-damned cesspool. Why not start up a Praetorian guard.

    Folks, its all coming apart at the seams. Our enemies interfere with our elections with impunity. Pedophiles in the senate are more desirable than a political opponent. Our president relentlessly attacks our institutions, undermining public faith in law enforcement, diplomacy, journalism, and defense, with frothy-mouthed support from his media allies. The government is being disassembled while our coffers are being emptied by the rich all in the name of a populism that exploits the populace. Our journalistic institutions are viewed as liars, and Trump is more trusted than Christ himself. Look down, there's not much further to fall. I guess voting into office someone who kills his political opponents, but there isn't much else left.
    I figure we have about 1 year to put a stop to this. If we don't, I suggest getting your family out of CONUS. Yes. I am making those preparations.

    That is outstanding, although Brian Williams rapping is still the gold standard.

    Inside Trump’s Hour-by-Hour Battle for Self-Preservation | NYTimes.com

    WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day.

    Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the ornate Treaty Room, sometimes dressed for the day, sometimes still in night clothes, where he begins his official and unofficial calls.

    As he ends his first year in office, Mr. Trump is redefining what it means to be president. He sees the highest office in the land much as he did the night of his stunning victory over Hillary Clinton — as a prize he must fight to protect every waking moment, and Twitter is his Excalibur. Despite all his bluster, he views himself less as a titan dominating the world stage than a maligned outsider engaged in a struggle to be taken seriously, according to interviews with 60 advisers, associates, friends and members of Congress.

    Black officials say they don't want Trump 'to tell us what civil rights means in Mississippi'


    The head of the NAACP and two black congressmen, including prominent civil rights leader John Lewis, say they were not present for Saturday's opening of the nation's newest civil rights museum because President Donald Trump was there.

    “We take this stand out of respect for our heroes and ancestors who, often at the cost of their lives, paved the way for the ending of segregation and racial discrimination in Mississippi,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson said in a statement Saturday. “We honor that legacy by speaking truth to power and calling out this administration’s divisive policies and its pullback from civil rights enforcement.”

    Instead of attending the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum in Jackson, Johnson held a "separate event" with local leaders at the Smith Robertson Museum in the state capital to "pay homage to those who have dedicated their lives to the civil rights of Mississippians, without the presence of President Donald Trump," according to a press release.

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted that President Trump had been briefed on the explosion. Instead of commenting on the suspected terror attack, Trump later sent a tweet at 9:17 a.m. criticizing a Sunday story in The New York Times that said he watched cable news television for at least four hours a day.

    And yes, that was his only tweet so far today, as of mid-afternoon.
