curious if there's going to be mass asset seizure today. Taylor has been quiet yesterday about the whole US Marshal story. He was on Pence getting thrown under the bus by Flynn overnight. Khan has been fairly quiet too

I'm hoping the press filming the departure end up seeing the guy carrying Trump's briefcase trip and it spills open scattering the Whitehouse silverware all over the landing pad.  I just really, really want him to go out on such a plebian cliche note.

How long is his flight. 10 hours? 12? He'll be bored and getting punchy. And you just know that AF1 has wifi.

As I've said about every day this week, this is exhausting, and I could use at least one day without a breaking scandal.

A little rest is crucial, as I'm sure Trump will be a gaffe machine once he lands.

Claude Taylor retweeting Senator Markey saying there's a grand jury investigation out of NY.

also some story about a Russian spy being hired by the Trump people. What the hell is ania.com and should I trust them?

News will come out that is actually building fema camps to send reporters to. The White house will deny it, then Trump will tweet, "The camps we are sending them to were already built. Sad! #WitchHunt #fakenews"

I have a feeling his aides have had a serious meeting or 3 about how to keep him distracted and away from his phone while in flight. They'll probably have a TV on with Fox News saying flattering things about him. But his aides also like to slip him stories that serve their own interests, so he might find something that pisses him off in the middle of his memos and demand his phone. 

This must be what the game of thrones looks like to the peasants in George R R Martin's world. They're mostly ignorant of all the intrigue and just have to deal with the fallout.

agreed. Sometimes these guys give a great indication of the shiat that's about to break. Normally because they have one or two legit sources whereas the actual press needs three different sources to claim legitimacy.

never take the twitter news without a massive grain of salt, but it gives a good idea what's coming and the real press will then give a more refined accounting of the news that broke

Okay. I'm going for it. I am about to make THE PREDICTION.

I PREDICT that TODAY will be a relatively quiet day. The reason for this is because the Special Counsel gives everyone an excuse to stop talking about Russia. Even Trump will be quiet - partly because of the SC and partly because he's quite used to being entertained on aeroplanes and probably has a pre-Presidential routine, there.

I thought for a second about listening to a political podcast and this was the second reason why I didn't. Unless the podcast is live, they are most likely talking about some old scandal while the new fresh one is flying through Twitter.

The first reason I don't listen to political podcasts is I can't take any additional political talk outside of Twitter and Fark. I'd lose my mind. I need a podcast like Cum Town to bring back my sanity.

Here's my prediction:

On his tour of the middle east, Trump is going to die of a hard attack due to stress, overeating, not enough sleep and the additional stress of jetlag.

We're going to hear multitudes of entertaining but conflicting conspiracy theories (the Israelis did it to avenge the intelligence leak, the Russians did it to prevent their control of Trump becoming public knowledge, the Globalists did it to install the NWO, the deep state did it to avenge Comey, the Mexicans did it because of the wall, the Canadians did it because of the trade war, China did it because of North Korea, the Clintons did it because emails and maps and such).

Pence becomes president, cleans the WH of Bannon and his ilk and tries to implement all dominionists fantasies he can think of. Republican controlled congress allows many, but not all of his initiatives. The supreme court gets to slap down a few of them as well.

The prosecutions against Flynn, Manaford & co. end with guilty pleas and slaps on the wrists. Ryan barely escapes, the old turtle is completely unaffected.

In the end, you're going to see less national embarrassment (Pence can talk and can also shut up), less outright white power fantasies and more christian fantasies. Not much change overall.

The alternative scenario is that Trump starts the third world war when he speaks about Islam in Saudi Arabia.

one problem with your theory, the SC won't make Trump quiet. I think he's just in the throes if mass exhaustion from his constant yelling about it. Did you see any clips from the presser with Santos yesterday? Damn dude is aging fast
