    Once again - confirmation that whatever Rex has done/said is likely true considering the speed and veracity of his thin skinned tantrum.

    Why not follow through with the IQ test.....
    Trump wrote this on his notes yesterday, enough said.

    This coming from a man who is as dumb as a rock and totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be POTUS, the admission is not surprising....one of the best comments on that tweet above :p

    As the Trump trade war continues to backfire, American retailers are collapsing. Dressbarn and Payless will close all of their stores; a total of 3,250.

    Analysts have suggested that the US could lose 12,000 retail stores this year.

    Trump is bribing the farmers effected by the trade war with China with $16bn. He's again claiming that China is paying for it via the tariffs which is a complete lie.

    Ouch! McConnell and Graham can't be happy with this. Though it is something else they are shining. Equal branch of Gov are they lol.

    His latest press conference is stunning, reminiscent of that cabinet meeting he less than subtlety got various people to lavish praise on him. Real alpha stuff.

    Trump's federal Bureau of Prisons has released infamous 'American Taliban' John Walker Lindh despite the fact that he continues to openly call for extremist violence.

    Imagine the outcry if this had happened under Obama.

    As much as I don’t like Pelosi, she’s definitely playing Trump like a fiddle. Which to be fair isn’t hard to do really as he’s thick as ****.
    But not only that, the perma mummy exhibit that goes by the name of Kelly Anne Conway also decided to have a pop at Pelosi as well. Pelosi in an press conference, when asked about Conways comment...said I don’t talk to staff as I’d rather speak to the President lololol.

    Btw what’s happened to Sarah ‘redneck’ huckabee Sanders?? Haven’t seen her spout her usual nonsense in the WH briefings. Did read somewhere that this administration, if you can call it that, has the fewest WH briefings to the media compared to previous administrations.

    She’s stopped briefings but she was out spreading their usual lies just the other day.

    Trump has a doctored video of Pelosi appearing to slur her words pinned on his Twitter. Every other social network has taken it down. He can’t talk either, we doesn’t require a doctored video to show him unable to speak - “Godsh blesh Amershia”, “oranges”, etc etc

    Lol :D. No wonder Pelosi isn’t entertaining him. What an utter embarrassing so called leader of America.

    Also the republican Justin Amash, who openly supports impeachment against Trump, was asked what he thought of Trump calling him a loser...his response was a simple ok lol.

    His Twitter account ought to be closed as he does nothing but spout falsehoods. On the other hand, it's good to see him keeping a diary of his descent into madness.

    I'm wondering if in 100 or 200 years time, historians will study Trump's presidency as an isolated crazy point in US politics, or whether this is the start of things to come and the new norm.

    Can't help but imagine the historians looking a little like this

    I think it's safe to say that this is the new norm as it's not just limited to the USA.

    Trump has deleted the tweet with the doctored video in it after having it pinned to the top of his feed for hours. Class act.

    It's unlikely. The more probable outcome in 100 or 200 years is that people will look back and thank their lucky stars that Trump was brave enough to take the job on.

    What will they be grateful to him for & what do you think would have happened had he not got the job ?

    Donald Trump, February 2019:

    * February 2019: Trump decides to keep troops in Afghanistan
    * February 2019: Trump decides to keep troops in Iraq
    * February 2019: Trump decides to keep troops in Syria
    * May 2019: Trump sends an extra 1,500 troops to the Middle East 'because something something Iran'

    Trump currently has 70,000 American troops stationed across a region stretching from Egypt to Afghanistan.

    So lets get this straight, Trump is bypassing congress to substantiate US weapons sales to the Saudis on the basis of the Iranian tension/threat which he caused and escalated? Not to mention assisting in the cover up of the Khashoggi murder. No conflict of interest or shady arrangements?
