Trump: "Shootings will not happen again" if armed teachers get a yearly bonus

Donald J. Trump ‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump

Armed Educators (and trusted people who work within a school) love our students and will protect them. Very smart people. Must be firearms adept & have annual training. Should get yearly bonus. Shootings will not happen again - a big & very inexpensive deterrent. Up to States.

Draft dodger schedules Military parade for Veterans Day.

Trump directs Pentagon to schedule military parade for Veterans Day



The president has directed the Department of Defense to organize a parade that would take place on Nov. 11 – Veterans Day – according to an unclassified Feb. 20 memo written by National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.

The memo, which was summarized to POLITICO by a senior administration official, was sent from McMaster to Secretary of Defense James Mattis. It says that Trump wants Mattis to brief him on “concepts of operation for this event.”

The memo also said that the parade route should begin at the White House and end at the Capitol.

Trump, who revels in pageantry, first floated the idea of putting on a military parade after he witnessed France’s Bastille Day parade last summer as a guest of French president Emmanuel Macron.

And NOW, boys and girls, it's time for another episode of "Let's Translate Trump," Jared edition.

With Kelly seated nearby, Trump said: “I have no doubt he will make the right decision.”

TRANSLATION: "He will make the decision I have already told him to make, because that's the "right" decision, and if there is any blowback, he's taking the hit, not me."

POSSIBLE DECISION #1: "He's my fucking son in law. Give him security clearance and you take the fall for any bad press."

POSSIBLE DECISION #2: "I'm getting killed in the media. No security clearance. And you take the fall for Jared, and especially Ivanka, when they need someone to hate for the decision."

RNC started paying Trump campaign rent at Trump Tower after it stopped covering Trump's legal bills

RNC started paying Trump campaign's rent at Trump Tower after it stopped covering Trump's legal bills for Russia probe

The Republican National Committee has for months been quietly paying expenses previously covered by the Trump campaign in an arrangement that experts say is bizarre, but legal.

The payments include more than $37,000 a month in rent to President Donald Trump's company, and thousands more in salary to Vice President Mike Pence's nephew, John Pence.

The payments started abruptly last September, when the RNC came under pressure to stop paying Trump's personal legal bills in the special counsel's Russia investigation.

Trump launches rambling defense of Jared Kushner amid security clearance scrutiny

Quincy Jones issues public apology for calling Beatles "the worst musicians in the world"

Speaking to Vulture, he’d called the British band “the worst musicians in the world” and “no-playing motherfuckers,” adding that “Paul [McCartney] was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo [Starr]? Don’t even talk about it.” He also criticized U2’s recent albums and put down Michael Jackson and actor Marlon Brando.

Jones said his children had staged a “family intervention” after his interviews. “Let me tell you, I am so grateful for my daughters because they are not afraid to stand up to their daddy,” he tweeted. “I am an imperfect human and I’m not afraid to say it. I’m sorry and I’m not afraid to say it.”

The 85-year-old Jones added that, even at his age, "‘wordvomit’ and bad-mouthing is inexcusable. When you live a public life you have a responsibility to be an example, and since I do live a public life, I wanted to make a public apology. I am sorry to anyone to whom my words offended, and I’m especially sorry to my friends who are still here with me and to those who aren’t.”

Jones said he’d made private approaches to some people to say sorry personally, and emphasized that he hadn’t had a drink in three years He said he's learned a valuable lesson. “I want you to know I hear you," he said. "I hear ALL of you. … I encourage you all to please grow with me and keep on keepin’ on. Love, an 85-year-old bowlegged man who is still learning from his mistakes.”

U.S. Taxpayers pay for Don Jr. to go to India and whine about the Russia investigation. SNOWFLAKE!

Trump’s oldest son has come under harsh criticism for the trip, where he is hawking opportunities to purchase million dollar condos while being protected by the Secret Service, and, in an effort to tamp down complaints, switched from giving a speech on foreign policy to what was hastily dubbed “A Fireside Chat with Donald Trump Jr.”

***

“That will cost us quite a bit of money I’m sure in terms of lost opportunity,” Trump Jr. said of deals that he claims have been set aside or have been turned down in order to avoid the appearance of conflict of interest.

Turning to Mueller’s Russia investigation, where the younger Trump is under scrutiny over his meeting with Russians in Trump Tower prior to the 2016 election, Don Jr. complained that it has been both a waste of time and a financial drain.

“The level of scrutiny is ridiculous,” he told the assembled Indian reporters. “The good thing is, after all that — millions in legal fees, hundreds of hours of preparation, every headline in the world trying to attack me personally — they kept digging and the only thing that they found is that the other side is doing these things and we didn’t do anything.”

OK, DU...deconstruct this Trump tweet about Ivanka in South Korea and tell me what you see.

My daughter, Ivanka, just arrived in South Korea. We cannot have a better, or smarter, person representing our country.

Show creator Michael Shur addressed the GIF in the early hours of Thursday morning.

“Hi, please take this down. I would prefer you not use a GIF from a show I worked on to promote your pro-slaughter agenda,” he tweeted.

Shur also shared a message from AmyPoehler.

“Also, Amy isn’t on twitter, but she texted me a message: ‘Can you tweet the NRA for me and tell them I said f**k off?'”
