I had no idea Morning Joe fancied himself a singer/songwriter

His appearance tonight at Vinegar Hill was plugged a few times on his day job. It'll be Live streamed on Facebook I hear tell.

Sigh, Oh, Joe...keep that day job dude ~

Donald Trump circa 1990

As told by Marie Brenner at Vanity Fair


Candidate Trump is pretty much the same person he was over 25 years ago.

Some excepts:

Most of the staff, however, were not a permanent part of Mar-a-Lago; they were local caterers and car parks, hired for the evening. In addition to the dining-room ceiling, Ivana had left Mrs. Post’s shabby fringed sofas and Moroccan suites totally in place, giving the impression that she was trying on Mrs. Post’s persona too. One of the few signs of the new owners’ taste was the dozens of silver frames on the many end tables. The frames did not contain family pictures, but magazine covers. Each cover featured the face of Donald Trump.

Ivana remained upstairs in the family triplex with its beige onyx floors and low-ceilinged living room painted with murals in the style of Michelangelo. The murals had occasioned one of their frequent fights: Ivana wanted cherubs, Donald preferred warriors. The warriors won. “If this were on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, it would be very much in place in terms of quality,” Trump once said of the work. That April, Ivana began to tell her friends that she was worried about Donald’s state of mind.


He had just completed the Grand Hyatt, on East Forty-second Street, and was considered a comer. He had put together the Fifth Avenue parcel that would become Trump Tower and had enraged the city establishment with his demolition of the cherished Art Deco friezes that had decorated the Bonwit Teller building. Even then, Trump’s style was to turn on his audience.

“What do you think? Do you think blowing up the sculptures has hurt me?” he asked me that day at “21.”


“Who cares?” he said. “Let’s say that I had given that junk to the Met. They would have just put them in their basement. I’ll never have the goodwill of the Establishment, the tastemakers of New York. Do you think, if I failed, these guys in New York would be unhappy? They would be thrilled! Because they have never tried anything on the scale that I am trying things in this city. I don’t care about their goodwill.”

Donald was like an overgrown kid, all rough edges and inflated ego.

They have this knack

Of turning the fruitless results of EVERY investigation launched or hearing held into a narrative of "well, we didn't find anything because she's that good at hiding the evidence" (and killing the witnesses apparently.)

Even with this whole missing email nonsense. It's not at all about trying to tie blame to her for some event that occurred in the world that must now be traced to a source...it's all about imagining and hypothesizing what misdeeds could be in those missing emails...

Republicans insist the evil in the Clintons lies in all we just don't know about them.

She was mocked for pointing out the right wing conspiracy to defame the Clinton name. Shit if it isn't so ~

PAUL MANAFORTE ready to back Ryan for President

Manaforte speaking to Charlie, Gayle and Norah on CBS morning show earlier today lets it slip that he'll be ready to support Paul Ryan for President next week.


"Look. I support the speaker and I know after next week, I'm supporting him as a candidate for president, too," Manafort said on "CBS This Morning," before quickly correcting himself amid laughter during a discussion about the Republican nominee's refusal to outright endorse the House speaker in his primary against Paul Nehlen on Tuesday.

Oops! Could there be a Plan B being discussed? Of course there is but how plausible is it?

ERIK TRUMP on CBS this morning....

So he's there to clean up his father's misstatements on The Khan family, on sexual harassment in the office...so, yeah Erik, spin away.

But notice his slip in the conversation that's starts around 4:30 in the clip.

"The ultimate sacrifice is dying for this nation and dying to protect the three of us..."

Hey Erik, there are four people at that table. You, and Charlie and Norah and look to your right Erik (oh, you did), there's Gale.

Four people. Who you leaving out Erik? Was that a little bit of a slip there? What's with that Erik? I mean counting to four is not that hard to do on the fly...
