Betting Website Gives Trump 4-1 Odds of Being Impeached Within Six Months

Betting Website Gives Trump 4-1 Odds of Being Impeached Within Six Months

I wouldn't bet the farm, not with the GOP in control of the House...

Donald Trump isn’t officially president yet, but some online gamblers are already thinking about his prospective impeachment.

Per the Houston Press, Irish betting website Paddy Power is now putting 4-1 odds on Trump getting impeached within the first six months of his presidency. Additionally, the website thinks it’s even more likely that Trump will not finish his first term, as it gives him just 7-4 odds of completing four years in the White House.

Other popular Trump-related bets on Paddy Power right now include video of his “golden shower” incident leaking onto RedTube (5-1 odds); splitting with wife Melania Trump (15-1 odds); and painting the entire White House gold (500-1 odds).

For what it’s worth, Paddy Power lost a gigantic chunk of money last year after it prematurely paid out money to bettors who picked Hillary Clinton to win the presidency. In total, Trump’s upset victory cost the website $4.5 million, which it said was its “biggest political payout ever.”

Trump inauguration boycott escalates

Source: BBC

A rising number of Democratic lawmakers have said they plan to boycott President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration at the US Capitol on 20 January.

More than 50 House Democrats are refusing to watch as Mr Trump is sworn in as the 45th US president amidst a feud between the newly elected president and the civil rights activist and congressman, John Lewis.

Mr Lewis, a revered member of the 1960s struggle, sparked controversy on Friday when he called Mr Trump's victory illegitimate because of Russia's alleged interference in the election.

The president-elect hit back on Twitter, attacking the Georgia lawmaker as "all talk, talk, talk - no action or results", which prompted a wave of outrage from people saying if anyone embodied action, it was the 76-year-old.

Trump disappointed by meeting with Martin Luther King, III... ;-)

Afterwards, Trump tweeted:

"Met with King. He was OK, but really wanted to meet Queen. She never showed. So disappointing. Was she afraid of being outclassed? Sad!"

Trump wishing Hillary a Happy Birthday...

10/26 October 26th. Such a bad date. Terrible date. She's a Scorpio. The Zodiac people - and by the way, the Zodiac is so so bad, there was a serial killer named The Zodiac Killer, it's true, it's true - they chose Scorpio because it was short for Scorpion. I mean, come on, how much time does cutting one letter save you? It's one letter. And N, I mean, it's not a terrible letter. It's not as great as D or J or T - but not terrible. H - boy, that's such a horrible letter. The worst letter. R and C are pretty terrible too. Scorpion, you know what that is? You all know, I see everyone nodding. It's a predatory arachnid. I mean, unless you're lending, predators are bad bad things. Trust me you don't want a predatory arachnid around. She loves arachnids. Eight legs, 73 legs, 200 legs - she loves them all. So sad. The Zodiac people - again, so incompetent - they say Scorpioans are known for their composure. Are you kidding? She has the worst composure. The worst of all time. Worse than OJ Simpson. I used to like OJ, but then he did that horrible thing to Nicole. OJ never found the real killer. You know who has no alibi that day? This is interesting, they don't want you to know this. Rafael Cruz has no alibi the day Nicole was killed. OJ had an alibi. That Kato guy. Weird guy. Nutjob. Space cadet. But very reputable. People tell me all the time that my composure is the best thing about me. But Scorpianians are all loozers. I hate to say it, I won't say it. But they are loozers. Incompetent. You know who was a Scorpianian? Pat Sejak. That guy couldn't even spell. Literally couldn't spell. He needed that blonde woman to tell him how to spell. So so incompetent. What's worse? 1947. Terrible year. The worst. You know what happened in 1947? She let India and Pakistan break away from Britain. Everything was great until 1947. She's born and boom, India and Pakistan are set free to threaten each other. I love Indians, there's a great Indian restaurant in Mar-a-Lago. It's open year round because the Indians are OK with that kind of heat. Nobody else is. You know what else she screwed up in 1947? She let Britain nationalise the coal mines. Can you believe that? Nationalise! With an S! They can't even spell it with a Z. They don't want you to know, they are lying so they pronounce it the same. But they are lying and spelling it with an S. The British are like Pat Sejak, they need a blonde spelling out all their stupid stupid decisions. But that's when she started to hate miners, back when she was an embryo and she nationaliZed the mines in England. And here is something I couldn't believe. Listen to this, this is unbelievable. There were only 144 million people in America in 1947. Now? 320 million people. Do the math people - do we need the Vanna White of math? No, we can do it. That's 176 million more people. One hundred and seventy six million more people! Since she was born she has let 176 million people pour into our country. Our country would be half the size if it wasn't for her. I'm sure some were OK, maybe one out of every ten. But still. And 69 is a stupid stupid age. I went straight from 68 to 70. Our leaders want you to think you need to add 1 every birthday. But that's because the whole birthday system is rigged. I might not even accept my 71st birthday it's so rigged. We'll see, we'll see. Maybe I will. Gemini is a great sign. The best. That's not me saying it, that's what people tell me. Scorpianians tell me too. Gemini is the best of them all. The Zodiac people say Geminis are outgoing and talkative. Again, they are so wrong. So wrong. Look at me, am I outgoing and talkative? Maybe a little. People come up to me and say I'm talkative. But I don't respond to them to prove I'm not talkative. I say nothing. I just stand there. She says she'll be the youngest woman president. Such a cute line. She hires Madison Avenue to come up with these lines. And they test all these words, and they are in cahoots, the Madison Avenue people, in cahoots with the Zodiac people. Not the murderer Zodiac - who by the way she has yet to catch even though she's had decades to find him - the Zodiac company. They do all this testing and decide that calling me talkative is how to beat me. Such nasty people. They know I'm not talkative, but they say it anyway. So dishonest. Look at me, I haven't even said anything this whole time! I've been standing here in total silence!...

That was actually an email the mock debate stand-in for Trump, Philippe Raines, sent to Hillary Clinton on her birthday. Let's just say if anyone understands how Trump "thinks", it's Raines.

Read the accompanying article, it's priceless...


A Modest Proposal

Remember when a Republican congressman interrupted one of Obama's State of the Union speeches by shouting, "You Lie!"?

Well, I propose that during Trump's first State of the Union speech (If he gets that far), the entire Democratic delegation should stand up and do the same to Trump, shouting in unison, "YOU LIE!".

It doesn't matter at what point in Trump's speech they do this. They could synchronize it by the clock, since he's sure to have told a lie every minute or two.

What dja all think?

Donald Trump Was Bailed Out of Bankruptcy by Russia Crime Bosses

Donald Trump Was Bailed Out of Bankruptcy by Russia Crime Bosses

Among the powerful facts that DNI missed were a series of very deep studies published in the [Financial Times] that examined the structure and history of several major Trump real estate projects from the last decade—the period after his seventh bankruptcy and the cancellation of all his bank lines of credit. ...

The money to build these projects flowed almost entirely from Russian sources. In other words, after his business crashed, Trump was floated and made to appear to operate a successful business enterprise through the infusion of hundreds in millions of cash from dark Russian sources....

The Trump Organization was a hollow shell and Trump was bankrupt, but Donald Trump the public figure was a “successful businessman,” a screen behind which criminal activity could be carried out on a massive scale. Throwing his name at every scheme in existence wasn’t a strategy, it was a fire sale on Trump’s respectability. Steaks? Water? Vodka? Fake real estate school? You pony up the cash, and Trump will slap his name on it. Because by the early 2000s, Trump wasn’t just broke, he had nothing left to pawn. He wasn’t a successful businessman, but he still played one on TV. His image had more value than his real estate portfolio.

But the apartments and buildings where Trump held some degree of ownership could be turned into value again. All it took was partnering with foreign crime bosses looking for a place to stash their cash. To inflate the value of his portfolio, Trump had to do nothing other than look away as the dirty money poured in from one LLC to the next. Citizens in Russia, Kazakhstan, and other former Soviet states lost hundreds of millions, but Trump got a cut as looted funds flowed through offices and apartments in buildings that carried those critical gold letters.

Seth Meyers Confronts Kellyanne Conway Over Trump Russia Briefing Reports
I love this snippet:

Conway was asked why it had taken Trump so long to hold a press conference with reporters. His first since being elected is scheduled for 11 a.m. ET on Wednesday.

"The president-elect has been busy forming his government," she said.

"But every president who puts together a government is busy," Meyers said.

"They haven't had…" Conway began.

"They haven't had to meet with Kanye," Meyers interrupted.
