The ever-growing list of people Donald Trump says should be jailed – Washington Post

November 29, 2018 Admin3915 0

Prison is always creeping into President Trump’s thoughts. On Twitter, in interviews, at campaign rallies, the president is constantly referencing jail or crimes punishable by time inside a cramped cell. It is not that Trump is focusing on how two members of his inner circle — Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort — are looking at serious prison sentences. Rather, Trump’s mind is constantly zeroing in on allegations and felonious innuendos related to his enemies. It seems that if you are on the president’s bad side, jail or prison is where you belong. Trump generally fires off these claims despite having zero obvious evidence of any actual illegal behavior. Wednesday was a good example. On Trump’s Twitter page, the president shared a meme from a supporter’s READ MORE

Architect of bin Laden raid: Trump ‘threatens the Constitution’ when he attacks the media – CNN

“I did not back Hillary Clinton or anyone else,” McRaven, who oversaw the operation that killed Osama bin Laden, told CNN. “I am a fan of President Obama and President George W. Bush, both of whom I worked for. I admire all presidents, regardless of their political party, who uphold the dignity of the office and who use that office to bring the nation together in challenging times.” “I stand by my comment that the President’s attack on the media is the greatest threat to our democracy in my lifetime,” McRaven said, referencing remarks he made about Trump last year. “When you undermine the people’s right to a free press and freedom of speech and expression, then you threaten the Constitution and all for which READ MORE

Trump makes a promotional appearance in Chicago for his new cologne ‘The Fragrance’ with The Apprentice winner Bill Rancic in 2004. By Scott Harrison/Getty Images. One late summer evening, the inner sanctum of the media-entertainment vortex descended upon the expansive garden of David Zaslav’s $25 million East Hampton estate, where the well-connected Discovery C.E.O. hosts an annual Labor Day party. This year’s guest list comprised the standard liberal in-crowd: Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Bon Jovi, Oprah, Alec Baldwin, Barry Diller , Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Katie Couric, to name a few. They were treated to a performance by Earth, Wind & Fire, who belted out “September” after the sun went down. But there was another set of famous faces mingling in the crowd—the people whose READ MORE

Cyrus Massoumi: They want like 250-word, like little hit them and go. It’s like — basically like a coke addict. Every hour, he just needs to get that little dopamine rush. Like, a fan on the conservative side or the liberal side needs to take out their phone, look at it, oh, Trump sucks. Trump sucks, so bad. All right, all right, I’m done, I’m done, and then, right? Like, that’s it. That’s it.

Trump Sucks

Bannon: Trump Sucks Up to Putin So He Can Help Inner Cities – New York Magazine

November 28, 2018 Admin3915 0

Donald Trump and Russian friends, playing the long game for urban America’s benefit. Donald Trump’s loyalists have developed a series of explanations for his combination of opaque financial ties to, and persistent defenses of, Vladimir Putin. But Steve Bannon, in his 60 Minutes interview, has outdone them all for sheer outlandish smarm. According to the erstwhile chief strategist, Trump’s Russophilia is merely an outgrowth of his desire to lavish spending on urban America: CHARLIE ROSE: Why does the president find it so hard to criticize Russia? STEVE BANNON: Charlie, let — this is what stuns me. I don’t think the president goes out of his way — what his point is, why pick another fight? We’ve got enough problems around the world. CHARLIE ROSE: So don’t READ MORE

Our Addiction to Trump – The New York Times

November 28, 2018 Admin3915 0

We in the commentariat complain about President Trump, but we’re locked in a symbiotic relationship with him. News organizations, especially cable television channels, feed off Trump — like oxpeckers on a rhino’s back — for he is part of our business model in 2018. As long as our focus is on Trump, audiences follow. It’s not optimal to have as president an authoritarian who denounces journalists as enemies of the people, but he has given us a sense of mission and a “Trump bump.” Every time he denounces us we get more subscriptions. (If you’re reading this, President Trump, I’d appreciate a good, thunderous excoriation. You’ve gone after Maggie Haberman, Don Lemon and Chuck Todd, but you’ve publicly denounced me only once — and so READ MORE

Donald Trump Sucks, Vote Against Trump, and 20 other websites Donald Trump won’t let you own – The Verge

November 28, 2018 Admin3915 0

I never took Donald Trump to be self-critical. The way he pins his toupee, how he scrunches his face when a woman questions his track record as a belligerent misogynist, his insatiable need to patronize everyone who doesn’t light votives at his altar: he just doesn’t seem like the sort of human who looks inward. However, Trump — or at least someone his company pays — has made the effort to pinpoint some of his most mockable traits and boneheaded ideas, and has purchased any related URLs. The best defense on the internet is a good offense, and according to a report from Business Insider, the Trump Organization has as aggressive an offensive strategy as any. The company has registered 3,153 web addresses. And Trump’s READ MORE

Someone purchased trumphotels.org and turned it into a parody website on Trump’s immigration policy – Markets Insider

November 28, 2018 Admin3915 0

President Donald Trump. Win McNamee/Getty Images The Trump Organization has long been known to have bought up a slew of domain names associated with President Donald Trump and his family, including URLs containing the phrases “Donald Trump Sucks,” “Im Being Sued By The Donald,” “Ivanka Poker Champion,” and “Play With Donald.” But there’s one domain name the company seems to have overlooked: the innocuous-sounding trumphotels.org. This domain name was registered by an unnamed party sometime last week, according to Gizmodo, and now features a darkly satirical tribute to the Trump administration’s immigration policies, which have drawn widespread criticism and resulted in the separation of more than 2,000 immigrant families in recent months. Visitors to trumphotels.org are greeted with a landing page featuring photos of immigrants READ MORE

This Video of Donald Trump Missing a Short Putt and Then Quitting Is a Perfect Metaphor for the Administration – GQ Magazine

November 28, 2018 Admin3915 0

Admit it. You want to watch Donald Trump embarrass himself on the golf course. Donald Trump’s administration has been a disaster in so many ways that it’s hard to accurately put into words just how bad things have gotten. You have the lack of any domestic-policy wins for Trump and company, Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia investigation (bye, Manafort!) that seems to finally be bearing fruit, his dick-measuring contest with Kim Jong-un, his use of racist rhetoric, and his constant need to threaten the freedom of the press. How do you sum all that up in a single metaphor? Is it like the Hindenburg disaster? I mean, that’s German, so it definitely captures part of it, but it doesn’t totally work. After all, there was a READ MORE

Dave Rubin Thinks the Answer to the Left’s Intolerance Is to Turn Right. He’s Wrong. – TheStranger.com

November 28, 2018 Admin3915 0

Rubin Report/YouTube I get a lot of emails like this: “Dear Katie, I enjoyed your article about X. I’m a lifelong Democrat, but the left’s craziness around X, Y, and Z has made me reconsider my position and I’m voting a straight Republican ticket this year for the first time ever.” The writers of these emails come to me because they are fed up with leftist intolerance and they know from my writing on these issues that I am as well. They are sick of liberals’ attempts to deplatform controversial speakers, they are worried about the left abandoning the principles of free speech and due process, and they are tired of being scared to admit that they sometimes agree with (gasp) Bari Weiss. They’ve watched READ MORE
