Wisdom and Aphorisms from President Trump: Great Leader, Great Teacher, Great Supreme Commander, Great Helmsman of our Nation

That kind of trolling, provided those people read that article, could actually change their minds, IMO.


#19197

There’s the rub.


#19198

And another piece of the puzzle fits into place.


#19199

“Everyone knows I’m a fuck up, so why should I worry about conflicts of interest?”


#19200

… and another highlight. When the Trump/Cohen bromance mob movie is made, this will be the opening scene and line:

Begin FLASHBACK

INT - TRUMP TOWER

(The late 1990s. A young, fresh-faced MICHAEL COHEN enters the revolving doors. He looks around in wonder.)

COHEN: Just like I pictured it!


#19201

Just needs a Scorsese-style tracking shot that culminates in Cohen walking into Trump’s “office”, past rows of golden toilets, where he finds his new boss snorting coke off Ivanka’s breasts to the score of “Gettin’ Jiggy With It”.


#19202

I actually have some respect for Michael Cohen trying to do the right thing now.

Maybe his dad had something to do with it, someone who knows a lot about what the end game of the fascist Republican party looks like.


#19203

Where is the freaking like button? Just ten likes a year…hell, three likes a year. Is that too much to ask?


#19204

Seems like a really bad day for Trump today.


#19205

Tax work? Clearly the investigation is grasping at straws. This is a fishing expedition. Mueller really has nothing.


#19206

HAH! That is the funniest/worst Hill/Politico/Axios headline I’ve ever seen.

As discussed in the Russia thread, Ed Burke isn’t a “Chicago lawyer who previously did Trump’s tax work.” I mean, he is, technically. But it’s like describing the Rock as an animated movie singer, or Michael Jordan as a baseball player.

Ed Burke is Chicago’s longest serving alderman, the veteran of 42 years of Chicago political battles, the grey eminence behind its city government, and the guy who knows where all the bodies are buried because he’s the guy who buried them. It’s perfectly possible that this titan of good old fashioned (i.e. corrupt) Chicago politics is mixed in the Trump affair, but there are probably also a couple dozen other reasons the FBI might be interested in investigating ol’ Slow Eddie.* The fact that it was his political offices that were raided and not his law office make the not-Trump scenario more likely.

That headline neatly sums up the Inside the Beltway mentality: for people inside the DC establishment, nothing in the outside world exists, except as it relates to their own company-town concerns.

*No, not that kind of slow; it was just a nickname given to him to distinguish him from contemporary powerful and sleazy Chicago alderman “Fast Eddie” Vrdolyak.

The comments to that Tweet are golden.

#19210

I’m dying. This is so funny.


#19211

Man that was perfect. Definitely worth retweeting.


#19212

#19213

Poor guy should know there’s only one way to be part of the journalist murderers club.


#19214

It’s the secret handshake for people who own his ass.


#19215

I wonder how many he’ll kill to try and join the club.
