I cannot believe Trump is so awful you find yourself rooting for KKK Grand Wizard elf Sessions and Rinsed Pubes knockoff Jeremy Piven

"Neil Gorsuch is my greatest accomplishment in the White House... "

Considering there have been no other accomplishments in the sixth months since Trump took office, I guess Gorsuch might qualify as "the greatest" ... or "the worst".
 
2017-07-29 05:58:55 PM  
It's his only accomplishment.
 
2017-07-29 06:16:44 PM  
Trump is gonna lose his everloving mind bc the GOP conceded that accomplishment to the Orange One and he's been crowing about it all the livelong day. Game.  On

Yes, you stole a Supreme Court seat. Congratulations!

No Rancid Pubes, Mitch McConnell and the Federalist Society get credit for Gorsuch, you and Tangerine Tito were just along for the ride.

I see we're using the word "accomplishment" rather liberally.

Gorsuch is McConnell's accomplishment.  Trump had nothing to do with it.

Yeah, subby, look at all the winning from Priebus.

Fox News - July 28, 2017 - "I'm going to be on Team Trump all the time," Priebus said in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity. "I'll always be out there trying to help the president, advance his goals, support him, as a friend too, and that's the other part of the job that people don't realize, you actually become friends. When you go through thick and thin together you get to know people really well, and he's a good man and I was honored to be able to serve him."

Very flattering but I don't think Trump thinks about anything beyond his bathroom mirror let alone remains dedicated to implementing some vision or other. The guy is is bright as your average Trumper.
 
2017-07-29 09:14:19 PM  
in what world does such competent and brilliant leadership require hitting "reset" in just six months?

If I got hired for a job, and 6 months in said "i need to start firing people and hit reset on this whole thing" I'd be laughed all the way to the unemployment line.

Accomplishing **anything** in that shiat-show of an Administration is an amazing fete
And frankly, Gorsuch's appointment was one of the few appointments that went to a capable and qualified person with bi-partisan support

The fact that this is objectively and demonstrably false doesn't seem to phase Priebus in the least.  Trump flip flops (read: lies) on issues as many times as he has audiences.  His greatest skill thus far seems to be telling people what they want to hear.

The Gorsuch appointment was the great perversion of the process. Obama did the right thing, he nominated a consensus bipartisan SCOTUS candidate which everyone could live with. The Gosuch appointment will go down as the greatest political crime in American history.

Parting shot was the statement to ignore the Palace Intrigue.  Trump & Mooch have figured out that they can use the media's obsession with the daily he-said-she-said to divert attention at will.

For this to work, you need team players willing to insult each other in the press and then keep working together behind closed doors.  This is why Rump was disappointed that Priebus didn't fire back when Mooch called him a Farking Psychopath in that interview.

The squabbles are a lie.

This may be true, but the problem is that he doesn't remember the things he says and his "views and beliefs" on any issue are what he happens to think will make him sound smart in that moment, that's how you get this:

1. On whether NATO is obsolete
Before becoming president: "NATO is obsolete." (April 4, 2016)
Since becoming president: NATO is "no longer obsolete." (April 12, 2017)
2. On White House transparency
Before becoming president: "Why is @BarackObama spending millions to try and hide his records? He is the least transparent President--ever--and he ran on transparency." (June 6, 2012)
Since becoming president: The White House won't release its visitor logs, reversing an Obama-era policy. (April 2017)
3. On whether he will have time to play golf
Before becoming president: "I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf." (August 8, 2016)
Since becoming president: Has played golf at least 14 times since taking office. (as of April 17, 2017)
4. On presidential travel
Before becoming president: "We pay for Obama's travel so he can fundraise millions so Democrats can run on lies. Then we pay for his golf." (Oct. 14, 2014)
Since becoming president: Spent more than half of first 13 weekends as president at his resort in Mar-a-Lago, likely costing millions of taxpayer dollars. (as of April 18, 2017)
5. On attacking Syria after a chemical weapons attack
Before becoming president: "AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA - IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!" (Sept. 5, 2013)
Since becoming president: "Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons." (April 6, 2017)
6. On attacking Syria without congressional approval
Before becoming president: "The President must get Congressional approval before attacking Syria-big mistake if he does not!" (Aug. 30, 2013)
Since becoming president: Took unilateral action to strike Syria. (April 6, 2017)
7. On whether China is a currency manipulator
Before becoming president: "China is a currency manipulator." (Oct. 22, 2016)
Since becoming president: "They're not currency manipulators." (April 12, 2017)
8. On whether he will keep Janet Yellen as Federal Reserve chair
Before becoming president: "When her time is up I would most likely replace her." (May 5, 2016)
Since becoming president: When asked by the Wall Street Journal if Yellen was "toast" when her term ends in 2018, Trump said, "No, not toast." (April 12, 2017)
9. On whether the Export-Import Bank is good
Before becoming president: "I don't like it. I think it's a lot of excess baggage. I think it's unnecessary. And when you think about free enterprise, it's really not free enterprise. I'd be against it." (Aug. 4, 2015)
Since becoming president: "Actually, it's a very good thing. And it actually makes money; it can make a lot of money." (April 12, 2017)
10. On "insider" influence
Before becoming president: "It's Time To Drain The Swamp In Washington, D.C." (Oct. 17, 2016)
Since becoming president: Filled his cabinet with billionaire donors, Wall Street insiders and former politicians. (throughout transition and first few weeks)
11. On making cuts to Medicaid
Before becoming president: "Save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cuts." (June 16, 2016)
Since becoming president: Pushed Republican health care plan that would reduce federal spending on Medicaid by $880 billion over 10 years. (March 3, 2017)

I occassionally wonder if it's painful to have your soul extracted so you can go out in public and spout bullshiat like RNC PR BS does without feeling a twinge of conscience.  Whoever's doing it for this administration and the Republicans in general has certainly had enough practice by now to manage the operation/ritual in their sleep.
