Again, why is the Orange Swindler trying to distract us ?

I would assume because of the Russia interference investigation.

The guy is such a buffon it's not even funny anymore.

This was good:

"Russian interference" is a big fat nothingburger. There isn't a broom large enough to sweep aside all his other dirt however. They gonna' turn up something.

Imo he's assiduously keeping his "base" and others stupid enough to fall for it, distracted from the destruction his minions are doing to the apparatus of govt. Because much of what's being dismantled benefits/ed those of us not of their class.

Hmmm....what is not really workibg according to plan: The Wall and getting rid of Obamacare are two issues that come to my mind. He just wants to gloss over the fact that he is absolutely inadequate.

But the Repugs keep on trying w/Obummercare for example and that provides cover as the EPA, FDA, CDC, DoED and others are eviscerated.

R man is right Trump ain't bright enough to be machiavellian enough to understand/manipulate the nut's 'n bolts of the process but in a very general sense - and remember he's being coached by some very bad hombres.

219% duty on an airplane, Boeing doesn't even make a product in that category, does anybody believe that Trump had nothing to do with this?

Trump worships at the altar of Grover Norquist.

Trump worships at the altar of Trump.  He is the idyllic American if we are to take them in the aggregate.

I've asked people who've worked for Renaissance Technologies on effective strategies for shorting a country. The best I got back was, "That's a very interesting question" and "TIPS". 

I can't fuck around with TIPS because it's above my pay grade.

But Jesus Fucking Christ. Literally.

Jesus ftw

Using it in the way that was suggested to me, yes.  It involved lawyers and a minimum six digit outlay.

This Trump/anthem thing is going too far. Now the USA Paralympic team isn't standing for the national anthem.
