RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

That idiot Kanye West has written something in praise of Trump. Didn't he get the memo that Trump can never be right or do anything good? Geez the hate Trumpets are gonna have a field day tearing him apart. They may even have him committed.

RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

"You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him," West tweeted Wednesday. "We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought."

I think Kanye West, whether he's mentally ill or not, is right about that ^. Of course he should be free to openly love, support and admire whomever he wants and wear the red MAGA hat. He says he loves Hillary too. Also, his right.

West was pretty irked at Obama for not 'taking meetings with him" during his presidency, and for calling West a jackass after he drunkenly took the stage during Taylor Swift's first MTV award acceptance speech to tell everyone that his friend Beyonce deserved the award instead. I remember the jackass comment being leaked after Obama made it off the record and West's response to it.

Anyway, some liberals will give West shit for supporting and seeing himself in Trump, no doubt about it.

And some conservatives who've previously considered West an egotistical jackass celebrity who should just shut the fuck up about politics............ will now embrace him, defend his rights to say what he wants, and encourage Trump to take meetings with him to discuss Kanye's ideas about how he can improve the world.

I definitely wouldn't vote for Kanye West if he's actually serious about running for President in 2024, regardless of how he feels about President Trump. Of course, he could just be trolling.

RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

Trump went on Fox and Friends and did an escalating rant that included, among other things, a legally admissible statement that Michael Cohen had represented him in "this Stormy Daniel's thing." As well as tacitly saying he planned to refuse to speak to Mueller.

Avanetti was reacting in real time over on Scarborough Country and called it a gift from heaven...






Thank god I am oblivious to the opinions of others while caught in the blinding splendor of my own cleverness.

RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

Already today.....

1. The presidential doctor who Trump nominated to take on the enormous job of heading the Department of Veterans Affairs withdrew his nomination............. following accusations from unnamed subordinates about how Dr. Ronny Jackson (also an Admiral) had been drunk on the job, created a hostile working environment, and inappropriately doled out prescription drugs.

[Image: ronny-jackson-1.jpg]
^ Jackson and Trump deny the allegations and presented positive performance reviews from Jackson's tenure during the Obama administration.

However, the nomination surprised lawmakers on both sides of the aisle from the get-go. The Department of Veterans Affairs is second in size only to the Defense department and Jackson has no experience managing a similar-sized organization.

The veterans really deserve an outstanding leader in the position and I hope they get it. That department is such a mess.

2. Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, is being grilled by two House committees regarding possible ethics violations.

^ Pruitt has faced a storm of criticism for allegedly spending extravagantly on security and travel costs, approving large raises for his staffers without authorization, and renting a condo from a lobbyist who had business dealings with his agency.

3. President Trump called in to Fox & Friends this morning. His attorneys must be at their wits end.

Trump ranted about many topics live on the air. The President told the talking heads that Michael Cohen handled only a tiny tiny fraction of his legal matters and that the Stormy Daniels' case was one of them. (ETA: sorry Donovan; just saw your post.)

RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

4. Michael Cohen announced he would take the 5th in the civil case against him by Stormy Daniels so as not to have answer questions that could be held against him in the criminal investigation of his business dealings.

[Image: 5ace8263146e712c008b45e2-750-375.jpg]
^ Cohen also appeared in court in his attempt to get himself and Trump the authorization to review the materials collected from the search of Cohen's premises for attorney-client privilege.

Attorneys in the criminal matter used Trump's Fox & Friends comments about how Cohen was primarily a businessman who only provided a tiny fraction of Trump's legal services to argue that attorney-client privilege should thus be of minimal consideration.

The judge ended up assigning an independent former federal judge with 17 years experience to review the material collected for attorney-client privilege. That wasn't what either side requested, but seems like the best solution to me.

(Some media outlets are having a ball showing a collection of all the times Trump contended that only guilty people and mob members take the 5th while on the campaign trail.)

Also today..........

[Image: 104215523-GettyImages-631554058.530x298....1492113226]

CIA Director Mike Pompeo was confirmed by a Senate vote of 57-42 to become Secretary of State.

It was one of the narrowest margins in history for SoS confirmation, with many senators expressing deep concerns about Pompeo's previous public statements on hawkish use of military force, forced regime change, and Muslims.

His temperament was also a concern for some of the senators when considering Pompeo for the nation's chief diplomatic role.

Pompeo was able to overcome the obstacles by getting six Democratic votes from senators facing re-election this year in Trump country, securing one Independent vote, and working with President Trump to convince Republican senator Rand Paul to drop his opposition to Pompeo's appointment.

--------------------------------------
I have a low opinion of Mike Pompeo and his positions having watched and listened to him over the years. I hope he pleasantly surprises me and does a good job for our country.

Secretary Clinton was one of the people he reached out to for advice when he was preparing for his confirmation. Weird he would do so given he has called her morally reprehensible. 78
