Satisfying read.

This quote would also be a good description of Trump:

From Putin’s perspective, facts don’t really matter. He either takes no notice of the practical barriers that we’re aware of or believes them to be western propaganda or a delusion. In essence, Putin sees the world as he himself perceives it.

Tragically delicious.

Golf writer Rick Reilly's book Commander in Cheat was a great read.

Really drives home how Trump cheats at EVERYTHING. No issue too big, no issue too small.

It has been widely reported that Trump cheats at golf. In 2019, the golf writer Rick Reilly published a book, Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump.

As well as reporting routine rule violations, with sources including the PGA Tour pro Brad Faxon and the actor Samuel L Jackson, Reilly wrote about Trump’s habit of claiming dubious feats.

“Donald’s Trump’s boast about winning 18 club championships,” Reilly wrote, “is a lie that’s so over-the-top Crazytown it loses all credibility among golfers the second it’s out of his mouth.”

Reilly also wrote that Trump International in West Palm Beach, Florida, now the site of Trump’s claimed hole-in-one, “has a plaque on the wall that lists all the men who’ve won the men’s club championship. Trump appears three times: 1999, 2001, and 2009. But hold on. The course wasn’t even open in 1999.”

Reilly also examined Trump’s claim to have a handicap of 2.8. The man generally considered the greatest golfer of all time, Jack Nicklaus, plays off 3.4. In Reilly’s words: “If Trump is a 2.8, Queen Elizabeth is a pole vaulter.”

He drew up the battle plan himself.

LOL, Qanon Ouija board.

"He obviously saw that Trump had contempt for the Ukrainians. I think that had an impact"

I think Bolton is putting the chicken before the egg there. The whole reason Trump acted the way he did toward Ukraine is because he knew what Putin wanted. That started in 2016 already, probably under Manafort's influence, with the Trump campaign insisting on only one area of change in the Republican party platform--their statement of support for Ukraine. Even after Manafort was gone, there were likely multiple ways that message was still getting to Donny.

Good reminder.

It also can't be said enough times that the ONLY change the Trump campaign wanted in the 2016 Republican Party platform was to their position on Ukraine.

The Trump campaign went out of its way to dramatically alter the Republican Party’s official position on Ukraine—against the wishes of GOP hawks and despite senior Trump aide Paul Manafort’s insistence that they weren’t involved.

The move, first reported by The Washington Post, alienated Republicans who have made up the party’s foreign policy base for decades, and indicates that the Trump campaign has a particular interest in Ukraine, where Manafort had previously worked for a pro-Putin leader.

Manafort said on NBC’s Meet the Press this past weekend that the change in language on Ukraine “absolutely did not come from the Trump campaign.”

But this account is contradicted by four sources in the room, both for and against the language.
