    Yeah, this was a reasonably big thing during the campaign, but thankfully hasn't been much in evidence since he won

    When you only spend time with really awful people and are very much influenced by what they say to you, even a neutral person would end up with an endless supply of terrible takes (and he is obviously anything but neutral).

    He's an anti-vaxxer too? Does he have listing of the wrong side of ever issue to be on, and ticks them off as he goes along?

    I assumed that the Parasite thing was inserted into his speech (for him to riff off) by his advisers who know that Trump saying something ridiculous, racist, stupid, but ultimately relatively harmless, is a good way of distracting people from the real hardcore corruption at work this week in terms of pardoning Trump-like criminals and the Roger Stone sentencing and replacing the head of national intellligence who deigned to point out to congress the Russian intent to help Trump in the 2020 election with someone totally unqualified but loyal.

    Trump is the distilled essence of a tabloid editor, who sees his ideal reader and the person for whom he writes his headlines as Archie Bunker.

    Strange how it takes a blow job to bring out McIntyre's most right wing urges.

    Trump pardoning Stone now rather than after November might be viewed as acknowledging he could lose the election so might be risky purely on those terms.

    On Parasite, he seems to think that he only needs angry white voters over 45 and has forgotten that he needed some non-Muslim Asian votes in 2016. He's never gone after non-Muslim Asians as being unAmerican before and this would indicte that he's making white supremacy more explicit rather than implicit in those he goes after.

    An obvious point is also that he would not attack a British, i.e. white, Oscar winner.

    I love his "why don't they make films like *** any more" choices - Gone With The Wind & Sunset Boulevard.

    My dad would have come up with more recent films that that and he's nearly 100

    Clearly I struggle with Korean names.

    Maybe wishful thinking, but the two women behind him don't look overly impressed.

    He's just pissed off that a film titled Parasite wasn't all about him and his many progeny.

    You know how you have to check the latest Trumpism because you never know when it's a parody?

    I assumed the Paradise blather was a piss-take, so I still haven't learned.

    I wasn't talking about persuasion, I was talking about leverage per se. I don't hear it discussed much.

    The Republican Party are utterly beholden to the types of folks who profit from doing fuck all about it but. And a good part of Trump's base are the kind of folk who take pleasure in being contrarian, anti msm propaganda science. He wouldn't want to risk them that love him turning on him. Whereas no one (even the biggest jerk) really wants war with North Korea.

    To me, the connection between them is very clear, as the easiest way to manipulate him is to appeal to his narcissism.

    Speaking of which, I'm a little surprised that no-one has suggested to him that if he put himself and the US in the vanguard of the fight against climate change that his reputation would be secured, i.e. show him the glory that would attend positive actions. He sort of gets it, as indicated by his actions towards North Korea.

    All the reports seem to say the last person in the room with him can persuade him of their cause. It's why Kelly was so keen to lock down access to him.
