Should we raise money to have the White House checked for carbon monoxide leaks?

The number of people in the administration that can't recall meetings, conversations, emails, and phone calls is concerning. It seems like the amnesia is a systemic problem among the Trump Administration. I'm worried there may be some kind of carbon monoxide leaks in the White house. Should we start a fundraiser to get the place checked for gas leaks or something?

Do you realize Mueller is the Anti-Trump

The two guys are exact polar opposites. I'll name Mueller's qualities and the exact opposite will define Trump.

-Calm
-Strategic thinker
-Reserved
-Shuns the limelight
-Intelligent
-Well respected
-Honest
-Military veteran
-Highly educated
-Hard worker
-Surrounds himself with good people
-Respect the rule of law
-Patriot
-Self made man
-Thick hair
-In shape
-Normal looking suits
-Normal sized hands

Kind of eerie isn't it?

Trump campaign officials suggested getting 'someone low level' to communicate with Russians

A court document released on Monday said members of President Donald Trump's campaign discussed finding a low-level staff member to communicate with the Russian government so as not to arouse any suspicion.

The detail was included in a footnote in newly unsealed charge against George Papadopoulos, who worked on the Trump campaign as a foreign-policy adviser. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty earlier this month to making false statements to the FBI about his interactions with Russia.

In May 2016, Papadopoulos said in an email to someone described as a high-ranking campaign official that his contacts in Russia wanted to meet with Trump, the court document says.

"Russia has been eager to meet Mr. Trump for quite sometime and have been reaching out to me to discuss," he wrote to the official, who then forwarded the email to another campaign official along with the request that they send a low-level staffer.

"Lets discuss. We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips," the official said, referring to Trump. "It should be someone low level in the campaign so as not to send any signal."

Republican Judiciary chairman: Trump should let Mueller do his job

Source: The Hill

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is urging President Trump to not interfere with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation after Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, was charged on Monday.

"The president should let the special counsel do his job," Grassley, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Spokesmen for Grassley didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Manafort has been charged with 12 counts including conspiracy against the United States, according to the special counsel's office. Manafort’s former business partner and protegé, Rick Gates, who was ousted from the pro-Trump group America First Policies in April, has also been charged.

Seems like the Republicans arent too interested in giving trump cover to fire Mueller.

FBI investigating Whitefish deal: report

Source: The Hill

The FBI is reportedly investigating the $300 million contract awarded to Whitefish Energy to repair Puerto Rico's electrical grid in the wake of Hurricane Maria.


People familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that FBI agents from the San Juan field office are examining the deal and how Whitefish and the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) came to the agreement.

The report comes after Puerto Rico's state-run electric utility said Sunday it had accepted the governor's request to immediately cancel its contract with Whitefish, a small Montana-based energy firm headquartered in Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's hometown.

One way to tell that the Trumptards are worried about something

I have noticed a strange phenomenon anytime a major story hits that is clearly bad news for Cheeto McSmalldick. His supporters, seem to flood the election betting markets to prop up his reelection odd numbers. Its a very strange way to bury their heads in the sand but it seems to happen without fail. However, it has been my way to gauge just how worried they are. Here is a rough scale of republican freak-out that I have come up with:

+0.2%=Trump just sent out a tweet where is misspelled the word "America"

+0.5%=Trump is stranded in the middle of a golf course for 8.5 hours because his golf cart broke down

+1%=Trump threatens to start a trade war with mexico because Chipolte screwed up his order

+1.5%=Trump accidentally called the president of China "daddy"on live TV

+2.0=Trump left a copy of the nuclear codes in a KFC

+2.5=Trump is seen wandering around DC in an open bathrobe mumbling about lizard people

+3.0=Trump is arrested by Kansas City police after exposing himself to University of Missouri sorority members.


The Mueller indictments has earned us about a 1.7% increase. That is a moderate to severe trump fuck up. Seriously, if you ever see Trump's reelection odd shoot up on one these sites by like 3.5 or 4 points, just load up your shotgun and get to the nearest fallout shelter because the apocalypse is about to start.

My Ultra Right Wing Cousin Has Started Posting Vicious Anti-Trump Comments on Facebook

He is one of the upper middle class, frat boy type of Republican. He has actually done volunteer work for several Republican campaigns, including the current governor of Illinois (nothing high level but always out knocking on doors for those fuckers). Anyway, I did my monthly facebook check in and he has become vehemently anti-Trump since I last heard from him. He is currently raging against Comey being fired and calling trump a liar and a psycho. Maybe just a case of isolated enlightenment but at least 1 hardcore, super right wing Republican has turned on the Cheeto Hitler

Uh....Is Trump Wearing a Diaper in This Photo?

I saw a recent pic of trump today and people were talking about how he looks like he has a huge ass. I however am wondering if the Combover King is wearing a diaper.





I Will Leave You With A Prediction

I really only like talking politics regularly during elections so sticking around right now isnt very appealing. Ill get very annoyed very quickly if i have to talk about Trump every day, even if it is with you fine folks.

Here is what I think will happen over the next 18 months or so. I dont think we will decend into facist rule by tacky Don and his dumbass children. Hes too dumb, too lazy, and too unpopular. He has been in office for a few hours and the backlash is already overwhelming. He will probably never be more popular than he is right now and that is not a good way to start if you want to be a dictator.

No instead we will get a paralyzed, very corrupt government that barely functions beyond awarding tax cuts to rich fucks and less regulations on big oil. You will see a very isolated and impotent president (in more ways than 1) and congress plauged by laziness and infighting over completely tone deaf priorities.

Trump will spend most of his time bitching on twitter, making up shit as fewer and fewer people listen, and parading around like a princess, throwing out his title every chance he gets but overall dithering and refusing to work. Ryan and McConnell will have their hands full dealing with splintering factions that all want different yet pointless things that they can never get through congress and a democratic party that stonewalls them at every turn.

So my friends, no we arent a totalitarian dictatorship today and we wont be whenever trump is thrown out of office. Instead of are now in the era of extreme paralysis, where nothing useful to most people gets done in washington. Where the president and congressional leaders sit around with their thumbs up their butts and talk endlessly about what they are going to do instead of actually doing anything.

You probably wont experience The Great Terror or The Great Purge but instead The Great Frustration.


Welp, good luck all. As I said earlier, the best revenge is living well, so get out there and enjoy life while Trump slowly realizes that he is a powerless figurehead that is despised by the american people. Ill see you all in about a year when we start the process of kicking these klan members in washington to the curb.
