Then that is the second time he has put people in jeopardy to gain an

advantage in immigration negotiations. The first time was undoing Obama's dreamer policy. Reminds me of a gift shop I worked in once. A woman was caught stealing a t shirt that she would then get a refund for. Trump is treating childhood trauma like a drifter treats goods. Trump is much worse.

Is Trump going international with his populist movement?

Ex-Trump campaign officials are now appearing with pro-Moscow separatist leaders:

Also the American Ambassador to germany claimed he was going to grow right wing populism in Germany:

Trudeau's response to Trump calling him weak and a liar:

And we have the reason why Republicans are so outraged by good health care.

Poor people who die early in life don't vote.

Everyone know the very rich harvest smaller business in hedge funds or private equity.

How are the very rich supposed to make an 8% return if there are not a whole bunch of small businesses that cannot grow unless they sell to a big guy. Why if they were on a fair internet they might just grow themselves. And that would be bad for the very rich. As always, gumming up the system and pulling up the ladder behind themselves.

And the GOP has gotten rid of dyslexics who perceive the world differently and thus suss out

flim flam men and women. Except for the GOP presidential candidates who are almost always dyslexic and can pull down the fictions of other candidates so they win. Dyslexics, who can't learn a detailed human fiction, see the world in 3D. They thus pull down the fictions of the con artists. That is the dyslexics job. Think Churchill going after the Nazis starting in the the 10 years before WWII. The 10% of the population who are dyslexic were needed in every corporation, faculty, and voting district. To keep people from being fooled. They especially need them in the right wing districts. Thinking in GOP lockstep is killing the USA. By sprinkling people amongst the GOP masses who can't follow the GOP fictions but who pick up on what is going on at the margins, the US would be so much better off. Literacy may have challenged dyslexics value to society but humanity still needs there humanity, empathy and creativity of dyslexics amid the general population.

He's trying to be a populist but he isn't dyslexic so he can't excell at the big

picture, and then the bigger picture. He hasn't got the flow of Trump.Thankfully. For Canada.

Dyslexics like Trump have a small working memory which is like a holding pen for narratives

or events that have happened. In an instant it might not allow for all the narratives of the day, week or year to fit into it. They have good long term and episodic memories but this information is not at the forefront. With this limited tank of narratives in their working memory the dyslexic might then come up with a big picture on what is in the tank at that moment. This makes dyslexics creative as they look at things varying assumptions. They go all in with what is immediately in the tank. They then do a big picture in an instant. There is a chance that they come up with some novel or very insightful idea. There is a chance they are just wrong. If they are going to look at things with various assumptions in their small tank they are going to be right some of the time. Wrong some of the time. They then palate clense and their tank is a clean room. Wait a little while and their tank fills up again with a mix of new narratives and some new and old assumptions. Then they do a big picture in that instance again and come up with a different synthesis. Over a few days they might do a big picture on all the smaller synthesi that test with reality perfectly and come up with a big picture which is the thing dyslexics are best at. Their tank often includes narratives or events that are off to the side that normal people miss. So dyslexic are big dynamic big picture machines. If they have values which Trump does not. If they have empathy that Trump does not, the empathy is other people's narratives which are included in the tank. Dyslexics usually have both these things on spades. Trump is not lying Maggie is saying, he just could not find the proper answer in his tank in that moment. And he was all in. Ask him later and it might be in there. I know. I am dyslexic. Same thing with the 'lie that he never stayed in a hotel when he was in Moscow. His night there alone was just not in his tank when he was talking about it is my guess. And he was all in on that. I could be wrong. For sure Trump does lie alot when he is well aware that 'respecting the flag' at football games is really about keeping racism alive in the GOP base. He is a sleazy salesman. I think that Trump is so 'hypothesis oriented' should be a question for people too. Not just his lies.

And defence department paying for the anthem does not make it a public event?

Right. You are just paid to protect the biggest wedge issue the GOP cultivates: racism.

Cannot have the GOP base connecting with their favourite players on a viceral human level about injustice. Where would the tax cuts for very rich people be then?.

Free speech for some with Citizens United. Not for others with this NFL rule.

And the NFL owners get to benefit from both.
