    People should hope for the best and plan for the worst. But I do want to hear from his supporters on how this is a good thing.

    I’m just boggled. I really want to know how this gets digested by the populace. The USA as a client state. Talk about bending the knee.

    You really want that? 19th century healthcare for women? Wow. That’s bold. The USA had then better make sure all the blokes keep it in their pants if that happens. Maybe someone could form some kind of religious organisation to monitor that.

    I saw an article (the Atlantic?) that an active 25% of the population is all that it takes to effect change. So in this case “the middle” needs to get active to counter the extreme 25%. And they should be out at the mid-terms- to counter the effect of the primaries that tend to nominate extremists.. 8 years of Trump will cement change. Even two years of unrestrained Trump is leaving scars. And we have seen his record. He isn’t really cut out for long term stewardship. He is a bulldozer, Chauncey was at least a gardener. :)

    Well, maybe. But things escalate. And the fish rots from the head. Who knows who much malign effect this guy will have on hearts and minds. OR it’s a 11 dimensions chess style leftist ploy to get all the reactionaries to show their colours so they know who to put into those FEMA death camps next time a black socialist steals the presidency. Trump could be that clever. /s

    It’s rather alarming really. He has labelled the EU a foe. And he’s got the missiles. There is an expression “give a dog a bad name and you may as well shoot it”. Its all very well to say it’s just hyperbole but another expression is “the thought is parent to the deed”. Once you “think” something it’s no longer “unthinkable”. Golly. And next, Putin, up close and personal. What on earth is going on here?

    Oh but to see The Phillip meet The Donald. Hehe (I stole that)

    Well if that was the case, that he was held up, then it’s not really saying much about his and his entourage’s competence. But I understand that he choppers about, so it was more likely him signalling. Then again, his wife could have been picking out an outfit with appropriate text, and that delayed him. Which again goes to competence. Lets see if he hands over Crimea on Monday. So he can be best friends with Putin, which is what he also signals. Unless you can say that’s not weird. ‘Cos it’s weird. No note takers in the meeting? That’s also weird. Tell me how it isn’t. Please.

    Apparently Trump dissed the Queen by being fifteen minutes late. She’s 92. What a dick. And she’s also the Queen of Australia. So all the armed services folks here are likely pissed. Her picture is in every mess. Also, anyone who watched The Crown would be angry. Way to make friends, not.

    Quote... Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Friday that the country might be in the beginning of a trade war and urged President Trump to reverse course on his recent tariffs. "As you all know, I've said before, I'm concerned about getting into a trade war and it seems like ... we may actually be in the early stages of it. Nobody wins a trade war, and so it would be good if it ended soon," McConnell said during a press conference in Kentucky on Friday. Asked about the impacts on his own state, McConnell noted that reciprocal tariffs from U.S. trade partners are targeting both bourbon and the production of Toyota vehicles. "Yeah, as I've said repeatedly in the last few weeks as this has unfolded, this would not be good for the commonwealth," the Senate GOP leader told reporters. Trump's use of the national security provisions of trade law, which allows him to impose tariffs without congressional approval, have rankled congressional Republicans who worry he will roil the economy months before the midterm election. Trump has imposed steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, including targeting key trading allies such as the European Union, Canada and Mexico. http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/396887-mcconnell-we-may-be-in-the-early-stage-of-a-trade-war /quote ... so much winning. Are there replacement markets in Russia? I don’t think so. Russia’s economy is about the same size as Italy’s. #knownothingpresident *sigh*

    25th amendment. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dangerous_Case_of_Donald_Trump but it takes political will. That’s absent.

    ... and that’s what a fair shake of the other 6.7 billion of us on the planet are wondering about. Let’s hope it pans out.

    Bill Maher has made an emotive case that Trump won’t ever vacate the presidency, because then he will be open to indictment, as a private citizen. That’ll be wild, if it happens. And his SCOTUS pick has expressed views <edit> that can be read </edit> as believing that the president is above the law. That’d match Trump’s lifelong expectation, as after more than 3,000 lawsuits it’s pretty obvious he doesn’t have much regard for law except as a tool for his benefit. Golly. The circumstances would look ripe for a dictatorship anywhere else in the world. Courts packed, norms flouted, relatives in government, donors in the administration. If I lived there I’d be agitating for paper ballots - not electronic ephemera. Looking forward to seeing how the Trump show rates in November.

    I watched an s11 episode. The one where Raj breaks with Howard. Sheldon is just ridiculous. Not funny. Seriously ridiculous. Like moronic. I respect the success but they are coasting - and delivering blancmange.

    If Trump does this right, then maybe say hi to President Pence. One of two things left on the Republican agenda. They got the donors their tax cut, now they’ll give the evangelicals their bit. That’s a threat to Roe v Wade. Big moment to energise the moderates and progressives beyond the base. If, say, the House turns in November then that’s a big risk to Trump. Maybe even it can leverage a Senate turn, I don’t know. But the Special Counsel is still beavering away. No one knows what’s coming but a changed Congress is a risk to Trump, because he is not popular. Otherwise, maybe it’s “Hello Gilead”.
