So far this Monday

* Manafort to surrender to FBI
* Some Greek guy pleads guilty on lying charges, now working with the authorities
* Transgender military ban stopped
* Ryan Zinke in trouble with the Whitefish Puerto Rico contract

Anything I've missed so far? Great start to the Tax Reform Week.
I bet Will and his friends are "triggered" today.

I'm almost feeling bad for Sarah Sanders. She's being destroyed on the press conference but then, i remember what a b**** she's and it feels better :).

All the questions are about what happened today.

Sarah Sanders: (multiple times) "The president does not recall..."

Trump: "One of the great memories in all time."

One of the reporters just asked:

Are those the best people Trump was talking about during the campaign?

She doesn't want to answer the questions, she doesn't want to look like Spicer did.

The only response was that papadopulos wasn't an important player in the campaign, and this is going to be dissected to hell by the media.

So it was quite smart to not answer any question.

Florida, man
Are we allowed to talk about polls again or are they still fake news ?

They mean nothing and Trump actually has a huge amount of favored support. The polls don't even sample 100% of people so therefore, it is utterly useless as I've said before.

That's known...but they do sample in a way which attempts to best reflect wider voting bases and they tend to come close.

Everybody who is staying with him at this point has no integrity whatsoever , and deserve no compassion or even almost compassion.

How close do you think we are now to GOP Senators and Congressmen getting nervous and deserting him?

I know you have maintained that it will be down to his "ratings" but surely they're likely to desert him ASAP if they think he and his many satellites are going to be facing criminal charges and it's all but over?

I doubt there'll be any charges against Trump directly, at least not anytime soon...

And GOP doesn't have the balls to desert him, considering what happened with Flake and Corker and healthcare.

Did Trump start using the "Crooked Hillary" moniker before or after Manafort left the team? I forget.

Mostly after since Manafort joined when he was still in the primaries and Trump was still using the likes of Lyin' Ted and Little Marco. He had at that point not really oriented himself onto Hillary yet.

More so today than yesterday that's for sure.

If you look at the less crazy GOP Senators - Corker, Flake, Portman, Heller, Murkowski, Collins, Graham, McCain etc. they are more than enough to completely crush Trump's agenda over the next 12 months leading up to the mid terms. Then if by the mid terms things are still this dire, then the Dems have a shot at the House, which will off course kick off impeachment talk again.

It's all very well expressing pent up feelings and all but I think we really ought to show humanity and have some empathy for his cellmate.

There are some who have been behind bars for decades. I think they will appreciate having some fresh meat even if that is a bloated pig from the White House.

Beside the sea-side, Beside the sea.
Commentary:
Donald Trump is done
When his old campaign manager was indicted Monday, Trump called me on the phone, crying like a baby, and begged me to endorse him. I said, "You're already president, Mr. President. You were elected." He said, "I'd still like your endorsement." I have a recording of the phone call. It's so sad. Donald Trump is done. He couldn't get elected dogcatcher in New York, his hometown. I was very very nice about it. Very nice. But New Yorkers love dogs and he does not. There are 14 recorded instances of him kicking small dogs, and I have documentary proof of all but two of them.

Plus many other instances of him running around grabbing women's cats. Knocked on the door, grabbed the cat, walked away. Just to show that a famous rich guy could get away with it. Where is the apology? No, the man couldn't even get a job as a school crossing guard in New York. Look at him leading his grandchildren toward the helicopter — thank God there's a Marine there to keep them from walking into the rotor.

He's very wary of children, afraid they'll pull off the wig. It's from La Bouffant on 8th & 45th, 3rd floor. Horsehair. Palomino filly. I have receipts.

Trump shot a man on Fifth Avenue last year just to see if he could get away with it and he did. His base said, "Well, some people just need to be shot, that's all. As a warning to the others." Why is he so hung up on virility? Because the Army rejected him on account of bone spurs that you get from wearing high heels. Everybody knows that.


Just look at how he salutes the Marine honor guard — TOTAL DISASTER — it's not a salute, it's a little yoo-hoo. Uniforms are a huge turn-on for him. And when he salutes the flag, he doesn't even look at it. Total disrespect for the flag. And the salute is very weak in the wrists. Know why there's ABSOLUTELY NO video of him hitting a golf ball? Because (pardon me for being politically incorrect) he swings like a girl. And when he slices it into the parking lot, he tees up another ball. Mr. Mulligan. Mr. Multi-Mulligan.

He sits at that ridiculous little desk in the Oval Office and signs a presidential proclamation as if he's Kim Jong Un or something and he holds it up like a kid holding up his school project that his mama wrote for him. The man can barely read, that's why he hates TelePrompter. Total lightweight.

He is NOT A NICE PERSON and so the name Trump is as popular as herpes these days. Trumpet players have taken up the cornet. Card players refer to the lead suit as the jump suit. Tramps prefer to be called hoboes, town dumps are now refuse heaps, and girls named Dawn are becoming Cheryls. To residents of his crummy building on Fifth Avenue, it's now known as Chump Tower because it's caused so much grief and tragedy for people. It wasn't constructed — it was fabricated. FABRICATED. Plywood modules shipped down from Canada and installed by minimum-wage temps from Hoboken. I can prove this. I have documentation. The wind whistles through the tower at night, roaches the size of rats. Ask anybody.

People who voted for him are humiliated. So his ratings have tanked. The same people who admire him tend to drive Dodge Darts and wear sweatshirts from schools they didn't attend. Nobody stays in his hotels except foreign CEOs and their tootsies. He is weak. Weak on #s, weak on 1st Amendment, worst president in history. Failed @ real estate and now @ politics. His record = BAD. First president in my lifetime who DOES NOT KNOW the words to "The Star-Spangled Banner." The lips are not even moving.


He quit holding rallies in stadiums because nobody wants to go hear a loser brag about his manliness for an hour, you can hear that in any barroom. Only places he can draw a crowd are rural areas where billboards are riddled with bullet holes, shot by men angry because they can't read. He is so over. Totally irrelevant, exhausted, flamed out. The sleepytime eyes and la-di-da hair and the tweet-tweet-tweet say it all. Real men don't tweet. Ask anybody. We bark, we protest, we thunder, condemn, denounce, we give 'em hell, sometimes we post. Wimps tweet. And now the perps are going to start walking and talking. And the fat lady is waiting in the wings.
