Watch this video. Watch it carefully. Trump is completely unaware of his surroundings as he gets up and wanders away, ignoring Bibi’s proffered hand. Someone directs him back. Bibi doesn’t know what the f*ck is going on and Trump is clearly in no man’s land.
This ugly oaf is suffering from some form of dementia. I wouldn’t wish dementia on anyone, but this guy is a horrible human being.
The lights were barely on, and it was obvious that there was no one at home. It is so obvious that he is completely overwhelmed.
He has the nuclear codes!
We had an Irish heatwave today. 25 fecking degrees C. Of course, I went out on my new sun lounger (birthday present) [[hint, hint]]. And I promptly fell asleep for hours and hours and hours.
I look like I’m on fire, but I feel okay…
And I’d just like to take a moment to remember Christina.
Brennan was good. The news he imparted was bad for the GOP.
Well we had heard that PO had a meeting with McConnell and wanted to go public with the information about Russia. McConnell wouldn’t do it and threatened to call it partisan interference or something similar regarding the election.
But by god, there is no denying that they knew about Russian interference and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. They knew about it before that meeting with Brennan. Remember that “keep it in the family” quip by Ryan when McCarthy postulated that Trump was being paid by the Russians?
THEY CHOSE TO DO NOTHING.
THEY ARE STILL DOING NOTHING.
It benefitted them. They got their stooge onto the Supreme Court and now they are trying to gut the US to enrich their wealthy benefactors.
Also and too, Trey Gowdy didn’t fare too well with Brennan today. What’s interesting about Gowdy is that his PAC contributions doubled last year. All of these fuckers are on the take. It is in their own best interests to shut all of these investigations down. They are all complicit in stealing an election.
And then there is Dan Coats.
I watched some of that hearing and he didn’t exactly inspire confidence. He was clearly very uncomfortable with the line of questioning from the Dems. At the time, I had no idea who he was, but I came away thinking that this guy is beholden to Trump. Sure enough, he is another Republican appointed to his position in March. I also think he is a liar. There were too many tells there.
This swamp is so fetid that it is actually hard to watch these vile creatures try to destroy the US.
Oh boy…And now there is this.

President Trump asked two of the nation’s top intelligence officials in March to help him push back against an FBI investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and the Russian government, according to current and former officials.
Trump made separate appeals to the director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats, and to Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, urging them to publicly deny the existence of any evidence of collusion during the 2016 election.
Coats and Rogers refused to comply with the requests, which they both deemed to be inappropriate, according to two current and two former officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private communications with the president.
Trump sought the assistance of Coats and Rogers after FBI Director James B. Comey told the House Intelligence Committee on March 20 that the FBI was investigating “the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.”
Trump’s conversation with Rogers was documented contemporaneously in an internal memo written by a senior NSA official, according to the officials. It is unclear if a similar memo was prepared by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to document Trump’s conversation with Coats. Officials said such memos could be made available to both the special counsel now overseeing the Russia investigation and congressional investigators, who might explore whether Trump sought to impede the FBI’s work.
These are not the actions of an innocent man. He wants to stop that Russian investigation bigly.
