Clearly the actions of an innocent man.

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Jeff Flake pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

I think he's reached the point of actively trying to get kicked out.  I think it was subconsciously being done before.

Or, maybe he's that stupid.  It's probably that.

For over 50 years he's bribed his way out of trouble. Why stop now?

Why did Trump call Yertle to complain that Yertle wasn't doing enough to get rid of the Russia investigation? That's not his job.

It's tempting to assign some sort of Machiavellian, strategic reason for the things he does, but I think that's a mistake. He dumb.

You know, I keep thinking "He can't TRULY be that stupid... He is an asshole, but just what he's nominally accomplished in life requires a modicum of intelligence." and he says crap like they indicate in the article. Just... WTF? Spend half an hour and watch School House Rock, you twat, you'd learn something.

I used to wonder if he's subconsciously trying to get himself impeached, or if he's just stupid, or both.

Then I remembered he's never suffered consequences for his stupidity, nor his narcissism, and he's always just done whatever the fark he wants. He doesn't have the "consequences of my actions" mental filter, nor anything resembling Freud's version of a superego.

He is utterly void of these things that keep normal people in check. Other dysfunctionals around him think this is normal because this too is what they're just "used to."

He's so unlike a normal person, I'm just not sure there's a game plan for dealing with him, outside of just watching and waiting until he spontaneously combusts.

He thinks the's now the boss of the US. It's clear in his speeches, behavior, etc. And when people vex him, they vex the country, because he sees himself as sovereign.

God damn.  A few months ago I would have been satisfied with a politically neutered Trump remaining in office, just completely unable to do anything substantive.  But fark that.  I want this asshole destroyed.  I want him driven from office. I want everything he owns taken away from him.  I want Jared screwed over.  I want Ivanka turning tricks to make rent money.  I want Eric and Don Jr in jail with a new best friend to keep them company.  I want Barron raised by foster parents that might give the kid a chance at a normal upbringing.

McConnell is really helping Trump with the half-assed senate investigation.  If it weren't for Mueller, the Senate investigation would find nothing "wrong", perhaps some things that were, "disturbing" or "unusual" but nothing "illegal if done by a republican."

Well...

Everyone on Fark owes Steve Bannon an apology.  For months we've been calling Bannon a Machiavellian racist homophobe.  Turns out that Trump himself was the Machiavellian racist homophobe.

Either that, or Bannon isn't really gone and the conflict between them is a farce.

Strange how none of them reported Trump's attempts to enmesh then in a conspiracy to obstruct the Russia investigation until now.

"It seems he is just always focused on Russia," one senior GOP aide said.

Gee, I wonder why.

Why would he do that? He has zero interest in going down as the first president forcibly removed from office. If he backs away, he will do it on his own terms.

I dunno. I can see him using that as a brag. "All these other Presidents that were under investigation... Quitters. I'm not a quitter, not a quitter. Anyway... I'm the only President, the ONLY President that didn't quit. They had to drag me from office and on the way out I slapped the shiat out of them...believe me."

He'd just blame it on racism or the swamp or the MSM or whatever and his adoring followers would eat it up and pay to watch his news station and buy his vodka by the gallon.  The only way he loses is if he ends up in jail or (ideally) something worse.  Anything short of that, his fans will eat up whatever he tells them to eat.

That's what my better thinking tells me.  However, the clownish rate at which these people are openly farking up is just too much, you know?  Like, how is literally everyone within low orbit of this Russia scandal tripping over their own dicks to incriminate themselves?

It's like when your kid does something sinister, there's a slim chance they're an evil genious but more than likely they're just a kid and you're putting too much thought into it.

The funny thing is that the dossier only used the bed piss as an example.  Who knows what other shiat Russia has on Trump, and how truly twisted he really is.  In all honesty, I normally wouldn't care.  But in this case revealing Trump's insanity (because you know he's probably impotent as hell)  would probably destroy his mind and destroy the GOP's pathetic religious 'morality' in one fell swoop.

Welcome to the world of the 45th President, where a huckster got into power because he sold us out to the Russians because they know he has a micropenis.

shinji3i: It's like when your kid does something sinister, there's a slim chance they're an evil genious but more than likely they're just a kid and you're putting too much thought into it.


My firstborn can get a tad Machiavellian sometimes. When she was preschool age, we were at the park and an older kid (maybe five or six?) was pushing her around. His mom and I got him to knock it off and all the kids went to play in the sand pit. Yay!

Well, Arigbyling found herself next to the reformed bully... and she had a tiny shovel... and the way he was leaning, his pocket was gaping wide... and she had a big ol' heap of sand on her tiny shovel... and she looked from it to his pocket and back a dozen times or so... and I was juuuust starting to think maybe I should intervene when she whipped out some goddamned snake-speed reflexes, tipped the whole shovelful into his pocket, and started studiously digging around without looking at him again.

I decided farkit and didn't outwardly react.

Then there was the time when Arigbyling was in kindergarten and an older kid (maybe eight or so) started strangling her and some other kindergarteners. The teachers made him quit it--to my shock, frankly--but that apparently wasn't enough for her. The other kindergarteners were happy to ignore him, but she tattled on him attacking them nearly every day for a couple of weeks. Then one day she tattled on him while he was home sick.

Bus-ted!

And here's the thing: I don't know if she's outgrown that... or just gotten better at it.

I guess what I'm saying is she would make a better president for you. She is smart, can make things go.

Considering that he already asked Comey to stop the investigation, I'm thinking his mindset is "I'm president, with the largest electoral victory in the history of ever, and biggest popular vote getter after those fraudulent votes are discarded" so the rules don't apply to me.  If any aspect of this ever gets before a judge, I'm pretty sure he'll ask to judge to drop it too.

Everything about him screams "king in his own mind". Look at his homes, furnishings, accessories... Now, he thinks he's vindicated, and a king in fact, and everyone should bow down to him. It explains -everything- about his behavior. He's Little Lord Faulteroy, and can't understand why the world isn't bowing to his whim, because HE WON.
