"I had tremendous crowds in Texas"

- Donald J. Trump :D

 

You know I was only kidding then this ...

Posted Today, 01:56 PM

As Trump addressed a crowd gathered outside the firehouse where he got a briefing, Trump remarked: "What a crowd, what a turnout," per pool

Give us Barrabas!

Then again, Barrabas was just a petty thief. Arpaio systematically profiled and targeted Latinos, even after being told by a court to cease and desist. And that doesn't begin to cover atrocities inmates were subjected to in his detention centers.

like paying for their own xmas meals with little delectable brownies. :)

Well the Finnish PM just gave Trump a brief climate change lesson at the WH and Trump just nodded.  Black carbon from emissions hangs over the Arctic and causes the ice to melt.  Simple.

Yes, exactly.  Unknown fringe hippie named Jesus.  Love it.   :)

 

Yea,  most of the crowd would wonder why Trump is pardoning Willie Nelson for illegally smoking pot!

If the "divinity" of Christ was not known, as in, if Jesus was brought in to the rally and introduced as a fringe religious cultist who caused trouble for the mainstream church and advocated for the welfare of the poor, sick, and downtrodden, and also had long hair and a beard, and who associated with other "hippy" types...and this figure was matched with Sheriff Joe, then they would definitely pardon Arpaio.

Here's a question:  Who do you think the crowd would chose to pardon at a Trump rally?  Sheriff Joe or Jesus Christ?  Be honest.

This seems like a bit of a Lonesome Rhodes moment.  Transcripts of the telephone conversation between his nibs and the Mexican President reveal that Turmp was practically begging him just to go along with the HS of agreeing to pay for the wall for appearances sake.  Trump promises to work something out but emphasizes how important Mexico's agreement is because he has been promising this HS to the people for two years.  So, if anyone doubted what HS Trump has been selling the public here it is in black and white.

Calling all Seth Rich conspiracy nut jobs.  This just in at the Washington Post.  Only it implicates Trump in concocting this malarky ...

Politics

 Analysis 
A timeline of the explosive lawsuit alleging a White House link in the Seth Rich conspiracy

https://www.washingt...st-draw5&wpmm=1

NPR’s David Folkenflik reported Tuesday morning on a lawsuit filed by a man named Rod Wheeler that makes a remarkable claim: The Trump White House — or President Trump personally — may have been aware of or involved in a discredited Fox News story about the killing of a Democratic National Committee staffer last July.

The headline says it all. U.S. Police Chiefs blast Trump for endorsing police brutality.

First the Boy Scouts, now law enforcement.  

 

I fully expect Trump to ask police officers to get rough with Boy Scouts!   :blink:
