I at least applaud Trump for getting journalists up off their asses and back to doing real investigative reporting again. 
Actual farking news is refreshing.

Mabeled: I love the fact that Trump thought that firing Comey would make the treason investigation go away.


This is the thing that really gets me about this whole thing.  People aren't like superheroes, where someone may literally be the only person capable of doing something.  Did he really think that it would just stop an official investigation if the guy leading it was gone?  Did he think that Comey was pursuing this matter entirely solo?  Did he think?

ivan: Lorelle: JerseyTim: It's going to be amazing when, in his Boobies-impeachment television interview, Trump still brags about his electoral college win.

*snert*

People the world over have no idea what a Boobies-impeachment television interview is.

But Farkers do.

It's what binds us together.

That, and all the other nonsense.


It took me a second to parse, and then it made me really happy.

A third government official briefed on the meeting defended the president, saying Mr. Trump was using a negotiating tactic when he told Mr. Lavrov about the "pressure" he was under. The idea, the official suggested, was to create a sense of obligation with Russian officials and to coax concessions out of Mr. Lavrov - on Syria, Ukraine and other issues - by saying that Russian meddling in last year's election had created enormous political problems for Mr. Trump.

I love seeing this wankers twist and turn and lie and distort in order to attempt to polish the turd in the Oval Office only to have Emperor Commodus himself completely undermine their carefully concocted image of him every time he shiats out another tweet.

JulieAzel626: Well, I wonder if The New York Times and Washington Post purposely dropped their stories while Air Force One was in the air?


Probably.  Or one dropped it the second the other one did.  This has happened multiple times already; The Times breaks a Trump story, and before the MSNBC anchor can even describe it, the WaPo breaks a completely different Trump story.

I think Spicer's officially on the verge of having zero farks to give about his career as WHPS, and is now looking for a way to quietly exit before Trump returns and fires him.


My gut feeling is he goes on SNL tomorrow dressed as Melissa McCarthy.

It's just locker-room talk.  This locker room just happens to be in a Russian Bathhouse adjoining the entrance to a Siberian Gulag.

For good or for ill: I bet Trump can't tweet when he's overseas. His phone is probably considered an attack vector and penetration point for security and can't have it any time he is outside AF1 in a foreign country.

Mr. Trump added, "I'm not under investigation."

Not specifically, your entire administration and transition team are under investigation.  Short of handing the Russian officials one bag that read SECRET INTEL and the Russian guys handed him a bag with a giant $ sign on it, he couldn't farking act more guilty.


Sorry, can't resist digging this one back up

Contemporaneous notes taken by a party to an event are "evidence."

You can give whatever weight you like but since they are not really a glowing report of Trump's comments...taken down by someone who works in his West Wing....and not denied as inaccurate by Spicer...I would think they deserve great weight.

The first degree I went for, lo these many years ago, was Journalism. So did a lot of other idealistic kids, following the awesome footprints left by W&B and WaPo.

For the first time in 40 years, I kinda regret leaving it behind.

That's the defense du jour. No one is so stupid as to think firing the head of the FBI would make the investigation go away.  Therefore Trump couldn't have fired him to derail the investigation.

So, essentially ...
'The way you Russians meddled in our election to get me into the White House has caused so many problems now that I had to fire the director of the FBI who was investigating me. Now you owe me.'
Right.

I was listening to a bunch of experts on kuow radio, and they were about to move on from trump when the host was pleased to announce this new "trumpdate."

This prompted one of the guests to comment that the Russia investigation is a refresh story, where you literally have to hit refresh on your web browser constantly to stay updated.

Trump is such an idiot, he will hang himself with his own words.

Yeah, that's a little frustrating.  It's a farking smorgasbord of farkery every day with Trump and his team.  We're like Mr. Creosote but with news.  We can't even digest the last thing we found out before the new thing that's even worse is out. And the talking heads are still discussing yesterday's bombshells despite 3 or 4 new things to discuss today - but they haven't sorted it all out either.

I mean, it's great because it's like a Gish Gallup of shiatstorms that the administration has no hope to refute because even if half of them are wrong or embellished there's still more than enough to prove that Trump shouldn't be President and most of his staff should be out of a job as well if not behind bars.
