Note!

I just heard something that I believe people here may find interesting. A trusted associate said that a significant part of why Trump is holding his 5 pm/est press conference is related to his fuming at being laughed at yesterday at the UN. The synergy from this and his frustrations resulting from private conversations with Senate republicans has him freaking out. At this point, only Stephen Miller thinks the press conference is a good idea.

Enjoy the show!

Are you seeing a lot of threads echoing the thought "this can't be happening". It was a display worthy of a grab offstage, or something. Yet, no one showed up to restrain him.

I have a growing supply of GOP epithets, whether I want to or not. Furthermore, I've cussed more this year than in the rest of my life put together (which includes my drinking years). Days like this, I don't know what I'd do without this forum.

Trump loves getting up there in front of the world and waving his tiny hands around, but the epic fail of a speech he gave the other day may have tipped him completely into Bolton's camp.
