👑 Portrait of a President

Ummmm…not cool.

This video has just surfaced recently, and another obvious lie that T has never had anything to do with Russia. You wonder if the Russians are amping things up on him.

It gets a WTF for sure…

Wishful spinning…sheesh! the king has no clothes and everyone knows it!

T getting ready for his physical tomorrow…With his pal, Dr. Ronny Jackson, he should be fine. (With those ‘genes…’ wow!)


#165

He passed and Dr Ronny Jackson was not his doc…osteopath Dr Sean Conley said he is good for 2 years. Forecasting is hard to do.

Another one of Trump’s hollow boasts exposed. The sad thing is that his base will never pick up this part of the story, and knowing them, they will get it in their heads that Trump actually won a Nobel prize. :-1:

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe nominated U.S. President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize last autumn after receiving a request from the U.S. government to do so, the Asahi newspaper reported on Sunday.

The report follows Trump’s claim on Friday that Abe had nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize for opening talks and easing tensions with North Korea.

The Japanese leader had given him “the most beautiful copy” of a five-page nomination letter, Trump said at a White House news conference.

Trump is loud and clear on this point. He is pushing for state control of the press – just like in Russia, China, and North Korea. :zipper_mouth_face:

His tweet:

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!

This from a person who hurls insults on a near daily basis.

The Guardian’s reporting including some choice responses:

Donald Trump has savaged Saturday Night Live as a “total Republican hit job” while calling for “retribution” and an investigation of the show after another unflattering portrayal of the president by Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin reprised his role as Donald Trump with blonde wig, characteristic pout and exaggerated imitation of the president’s speech-making style, for the show’s cold open on Saturday. This time the sketch parodied the president’s press conference in which he announced a national emergency over his plans to build a border wall with Mexico.

“We need wall. We have a tremendous amount of drugs coming in through the southern border, or the ‘brown line’ as many people have asked me not to call it,” said Baldwin.

“You all see why I gotta fake this emergency, right? I have to because I want to. It’s really simple. We have a problem. Drugs are coming into this country through no wall.

“Wall works, wall makes safe. You don’t have to be smart to understand that – in fact it’s even easier to understand if you’re not that smart.”…

Trump’s talk of “retribution” drew criticism, with lawmakers and journalists suggesting the threats violated core democratic principles. The Democrat Congressman Ted Lieu tweeted: “One thing that makes America great is that people can laugh at you without retribution.”

Peter Baker, the chief White House correspondent for the New York Times, said that while such language had become commonplace “it’s worth remembering that no other president in decades publicly threatened ‘retribution’ against a television network because it satirized him”.

What’s next? Will the President demand censorship of political cartoons that feature unflattering caricatures of him?

Here’s the sketch in case you haven’t caught it yet. Hilarious and spot on.

More unhinged twitter rantings…this time after Rep Adam Schiff, newly head of House Intelligence said collusion “in plain sight” today.

Trump Circulates Limbaugh Quote Calling for Mueller Investigators to ‘Be in Jail’

President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to apparently circulate a call for the jailing of those who investigate him, including Special Counsel Robert Mueller. “‘These guys, the investigators, ought to be in jail. What they have done, working with the Obama intelligence agencies, is simply unprecedented,’” Trump wrote, quoting conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh. “‘This is one of the greatest political hoaxes ever perpetrated on the people of this Country, and Mueller is a coverup.’” He later added, in his own words, that “The Mueller investigation is totally conflicted, illegal and rigged! Should never have been allowed to begin, except for the Collusion and many crimes committed by the Democrats. Witch Hunt!”

The president’s tweets came hours after House Intelligence chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Sunday that there’s “evidence in plain sight” that Trump colluded with Russia.All of this is evidence of collusion, and you either have to look the other way to say it isn’t or you have to have a different word for it, because it is a corrupt dealing with a foreign adversary during a campaign,” Schiff told CNN’s Dana Bash.


What The Fuck Happened Over The Weekend?
