Thread: Trump's Card

    There's also a mirror of Kippers for Putin. I don't know how far into the Tories they've burrowed.

    I saw a bit of Laura Pidcock on question time, and her answer on this was not strong. I appreciate that there's a need not to charge in both guns blazing at your feet, but it was not good. But to be honest this sort of thing applies considerably more to cunts like Peter Hitchens who talk about russia's understandable desire for a buffer zone. I would love to hear how he'd get on with that line of argumentation down at the local polish bar.

    It's the idea that criticism of Russia precludes any criticism of the US. It's very Bushian

    There is a third option for British Politicians. Recognize that your interests are best represented by the EU, Because both Russia and the US are cunts.

    The Russians kidnapped Clinton and replaced her with a robot equipped with a voice modulated Markov Chain text generator.

    Everyone serves At the Pleasure of the President, you should know that.

  12. #7062
    Yeah, but the pleasure of the president doesn't usually lean so heavily on low level honesty.

    This isn't really politicians, more the commentariat

    I wonder if today is the apotheosis if the Trump-theory of hiding bad news by creating worse news. Almost nobody’s going to notice if the Republicans lose PA18 now. And if they lose it’ll be blamed on the chaos of the day rather than the fact that tax cuts for the rich aren’t such a big sell in the working class rust belt. If they win, of course, they’ll believe that this shows they can get away with absolutely everything and the electorate will not care.

    Trump tweets "Marine Core". Half an hour later, tweet deleted.

    I'd love to see a play-by-play breakdown of that half hour. Is it taken up with aides playing rock-paper-scissors to decide who tells him?

    You've got to laugh at how Trump's Russia statement considers it equally possible that someone other than Russia committed the attack, even though the Russians have been boasting about how and why they did it.

    President movies have traditionally been Oliver Stone's hobby, but he's going to have to let Armando Iannucci do the Trump one.

    Good analysis of PA-18 from 538

    The Democrats have declared victory and it looks very likely to hold up.

    I watched an interview between Larry King and the Newlywed Trumps (2005 version) on YouTube earlier, not sure why it came up.

    It was noticeable that the Trumps seemed quite nice and genuinely fond of each other, maybe due to the honeymoon glow, although they'd been partners for 6 years. He was both respectful and loving towards her, with his face softening as she spoke (without him interrupting). He seemed, if not humble, certainly not the blowhard he is now. What the fuck happened? I'm sure he's always been a narcissistic dick, but he wasn't an obvious monster. She looked happy. It was a friendly interview with no mention of politics, so maybe no need to feel defensive or angry, maybe it was a world where he assumed everyone admired or envied him.

    Yeah, I think your last sentence captures it.

    Trump lives in an alternate reality bubble.
