The surrogates hid when the "grab 'em by the p" tape hit as well.

This will be the new normal in a couple weeks and his support will return.

In fairness, none of the folks who are left really want to answer questions about the President supporting White Power groups. There are only so many swords these folks are willing to fall upon. Especially with folks abandoning the Administration en masse. You send out folks to do a talk show, they might never come back...

That's because the Sunday shows are all fake news. The only real news comes from the tiny screaming voice inside President Dumpy's head.

/ at least, that's what the tiny screaming voice is screaming.

What would they say, exactly? They've accomplished nothing, legislatively speaking, while throwing the country into political turmoil because the President apparently sympathizes with alt-right fascists, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis.

Unless they've got a hell of a recipe for butterscotch blondies to share, I'm happy to drop all of them into a nice, deep, dark hole.

Family and generals.

There are other countries with governments like that. It's perfectly normal.

Instead, she said, the White House referred the show to Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University and an ardent Trump ally outside the White House.

Bloody hell.

On Monday, Gen. Kelly announces he had Trump's tongue cut out and his hands removed. "I think things will run much more smoothly now that the President can only grunt once for Yes and twice for No," the grizzled Marine said, twirling a K-bar ominously.

What difference does it make? The farking coonts would just be lying through their teeth anyway, and the Trump supporters would eat their bullshiat up like mana from heaven.

At this point, it's a farking cult in a death spiral.

Yes. But the issue is that he's brought in people who know how politics work and take their oath to the Country and Constitution seriously

Anisley Hayes would be the perfect Fox News talking head (pretty, blonde, female, southern, Republican), but they'd never hire her as she has a brain and is willing to work with the Democrats, even working for a Democrat president.

Or Donnie Two-Scoops may decide to change his stance again, and then he'll get annoyed that they contradicted them on TV and threaten to fire them like he wanted to do with Bannon a few weeks ago.

The similarities to 2001 are disturbing.  Dubya couldn't keep his foot out of his mouth early in his Presidency so he spent a lot of time on vacation and eventually avoiding the press.

If there's another 9/11 and Trump gets a popularity spike like Dubya did, game over.

2017-08-20 07:29:39 PM  
Even if Trump didn't prove to the world this week that he's a shiatstain on humanity, what would Trump's surrogates talk about? Trump has no goals as President other than everything must inflate his ego. He doesn't and will not ever care about anything beyond his little world. The Trumperdink Administration can just send a Trump MAGA hat to appear on the Sunday political shows as that is the depth of his caring and understanding.

The funky thing is, the next 9/11 has a significant chance of being done by a Trumpanzee.  The plot thickens... and Donny's getting wiiiiiider.

Whether or not he got a bump would depend on what kind of attack/crisis it was.  If it was the neo-Nazis killing a bunch of brown and/or Jewish people, any chance at a bump would disappear as his immediate reaction would be to tweet about how it was the violence from both sides that caused it, or how anyone who lets themselves get blown up is a loser, or just some random wargharbllll from his flight to Mar-A-Lago.

He still hasn't started a couple of wars that killed hundreds of thousands of people, tanked the global economy, presided over a massive terrorist attack, or allowed an entire city to get wrecked by a hurricane.

Yet.  All of those things, should they happen, would be much worse under the current leadership.

Dubya, for all his faults, was capable of actual human emotion and usually was trying to do what he thought was right, even if his morality was wobbly at best and his execution of those actions was incompetent.  He was, essentially, an extremely sincere person whose word you could trust, which helps your popularity a lot in times of emergency.  Note that Katrina was a near-identical situation in terms of lives lost and response needed, and Bush didn't seem sincere, and there was no significant "Katrina bump" in his popularity.

I don't think we need to worry about it looking like Trump is a calm leader with a coherent vision taking control of the situation in the wake of a disaster.

Yep, who basically said that the president has more information than we do so we have to assume that Charlottesville had a large number of very nice historical purists alongside the Neo Nazis and white supremacists that the media is refusing to report on.
 
2017-08-20 07:50:55 PM  
So, by firing Bannon, the are no more Nazis in the US, and the Russia problem just went away.

The two things he's impressed with are money and medals:

"The kinds of people that Trump particularly likes are people with bucks - money - and braids - the military," said Martha Kumar, director of the White House Transition Project.

If Trump wasn't such a narcissist, I'd suggest ghosting the media. It would get hilarious after a few weeks of the media having nothing to work with.
