CEO's father asks companies to treat his daughter nice because because she's a "great person".

Another indication of how Trump can buy his daughter a company, but he can't make her succeed.

By his tweet about Judge Robarts, Trump has signaled to ISIS and Iran that he will appreciate any

terrorist act they can pull off in America . . .because he's already blamed it on the judiciary.

And ISIS will be glad to help legitimize Trump's presidency. He's proving to be the gift that keeps on giving.

Can't see the Putin forest for the Trump trees

Under shit storm of all of Trump's outrageous actions there is one continuing theme: rapprochement with Russia. The steps include;

de legitimatizing intelligence community and other agencies so he will not be questioned about his support of Russian goals;

alienating allies so that Russia will remain the only "ally" of US;

confirmation as Sos of Tillerson, known to have close relations and business dealings with Russia that were halted due to Obama sanctions;

removal of sanctions against Russia so Russia can make billions off of oil deal with Exxon;

ignoring Russian military expansion in Europe.

His strategy of chaos is working. Don't mistake chaos for either madness or ineptness. It is a necessary step to hollowing out government and social institutions.

Why NYT, WaPo and Politico should not hold private meetings with WH staff.


No meetings with WH staff should be off the record, while the President refuses to answer the press's questions in an open interview and when he has deliberately banned his staff from CNN for supposed negative coverage.

Trump's method of chastising one member of the press is done to make it clear to all members that they too could suffer the wrath of Trump. This is basic fear-mongering and it looks like NYT etc. have fallen for it . . .They have already given in to him by even agreeing to discuss their coverage with his staff. Their stance should be the meeting is news and as such they would be derelict in their duty if they refuse to publish what is said at the meeting.

While the press is giving reports based on "unnamed sources" who are "off the record", the least they could do is give the public a report on the meeting by named sources and on the record.
