Name for the Trump era......

Since the Kennedy era was called Camelot, what should the Trump era be called? Golfalot? Tweetalot? Eatalot? Any votes or ideas?

Could the yuuuge turnover of the White House staff

actually be deliberate, orchestrated by Bannon to keep the cabinet disoriented so that there is no chance that the 25th amendment could be used to try to remove Trump? If they keep changing, it would be hard for those in favor of it to know who is for and who is against.

Sounds far out, but Bannon is that Machiavellian. He never really left.

I imagine White House insiders will have very interesting stories to tell when the smoke clears.

I have been reviewing Watergate. How do you think this will play out?

https://m.

I lived through that as a teenager, and reviewed it to determine the similarities between Watergate and Russiagate.
Three differences that come to mind are 1) Nixon had been in office a lot longer than Trump when the fertilizer struck the ventilator, and the glow of new possibilities of his presidency had long gone away. He ran on ending the Vietnam War, and hadnít done that, so the American public may have been more primed to turn on him, and 2) there was a Democratic Congress. At this time, Trumpís party rules congress, and they are more likely to let the matter die if Trump kills the investigation. 3) Nixon was much smarter than Trump, but perhaps more vindictive. Trump is way more delusional, thinks things are true and real by virtue of the fact that he said them. Trump lives in a bubble. If he can no longer govern, he may just pretend everything is fine and tweet and go golfing. I doubt that there is a Barry Goldwater figure who can go as an emissary to tell Trump he is done.
Does anyone have a feel for how this will end? Resignation? Impeachment? If 2018 is kind to the Democrats, my vote goes for impeachment.

What do you think?

Hall of Presidents video...

...is a treasure trove of comedy. They keep overdubbing Trumpís speeches on video of Robotrump and it is funny as hell. The other Presidents seem to wonder how he got there.

I wish Stephen Colbert would have Robotrump on as a guest but I donít know who could portray him. Some have mentioned that Jon Voight has a resemblance.

On Trumps 2016 ballot he....

....supposedly wrote the wrong birthdate.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/trump-family-members-botched-nyc-mayor-votes-thrown-out-n828861

Various family members had issues of one kind or another, but Trump writing his own birthday down incorrectly? Alzheimerís?

This may be old news or previously discussed here but I was not aware of it until now.

I read the story about the late Dan Johnson (R-Ky)...

....and found it really fascinating. He seemed to be able to say damn near anything, no matter how ridiculous, and people bought it. He never should have been the town dog catcher, let alone a state rep. I will let you read up on his background and be the judge.

Anyway, my question is, what happened to this country and when? I noticed a few years ago that I knew people who believed that the Great Pyramid was built by aliens, but could not believe that one person with a rifle could shoot a President. What happened? Can this country ever get back to the place where it can be trusted to elect its own leaders? Itís almost like you canít appeal to logic because there is none. I will retire in a few years, and wonít stay in the US. I feel this country is too stupid and violent to live in any more.

WTF is this thing on Trumps Head?

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-moore-alabama-loss_us_5a30598be4b07ff75afe89b3

I tried to post the pic but could not. Look at the back of his head, something flesh colored is sticking out. Does he wear some kind of toupee, and that is the base? It would have to be one bigly hair helmet. thought he had a highly engineered combover. Seriously, I have never seen anything like that. Any ideas?

A creative solution to the constitutional crisis

Trump always wanted to be an NFL owner, but they would not let him in the club. I say letís start a GoFundMe to buy the Cleveland Browns for him, providing he resigns. He gets an NFL team for free, we get him out of office, and itís the Browns so what possible harm could the idiot do? He could even make Malaria a cheerleader if he wants, I donít care....
