(CNBC)   Gary Cohn wiped his ass with his integrity and moral fiber as he stood next to Trump defending the Charlottesville Nazis. All so he could be Fed Chairman. Guess how Trump plans to repay him?   ( cnbc.com) divider line

Benito the Cheeto will want to hire someone who regularly deals with large amounts of money.

My guess is that Trump will repay him the same what the Lucifer, the Father of Lies, repays his loyal minions and toadies:  with a terrible death and eternal damnation so they don't have to drink lemonade with Mormons forever and forever.

He can hang out with Scaramucci who completely farked his business and family life for 10 coke-fuelled days in the white house for which he never even got paid.

Although he did get to drop the line about Bannon sucking his own dick so...I guess it's a wash.

Well come on, look at his qualifications:

1. He's on TV a lot.
2. He speaks loudly and with conviction.
3. He's on TV often.
4. He knows how to stick it to those libs.
5. He's on TV a lot.

What else do you need? A degree from Trump University?  Those are quite hard to come by these days.

Cohn's big mistake was ultimately letting everyone know how he really felt about Trump.

What?
Cohn soundly criticized Trump for that, went as far as to prepare a resignation letter over it at the time.
 
2017-09-06 09:21:14 PM  
I love these Faustian bargains where Trump appointees willingly hand over their souls for some earthly desire, only for their opposite number to say "lolnope" and walk off with their prize. It's almost as if Trump is the least reliable trading partner in recent history and this was known decades before he ever became a politician.

I think that was a couple days after Trump doubled down. So almost a week after the rally. "In the moment" when you look back a month later. An eternity as it unfolded.

I still don't get how the English language has a term for being thrown from a window.

Also, wtf do these people expect? Trump has never ever rewarded loyalty, and somehow never runs out of sycophants. WTF?

Whatever happened to Matthew Lesko? He seemed good with government money, maybe he should be the next chair...
 
2017-09-06 10:41:07 PM  
Trump isn't senile. Far from it. He knows he's out of his depth. All he has is bluster, stagecraft and a cornered animal's survival instinct. That's it. It's up to those high up in his administration to preserve and protect the country -- steady people like Mattis, Kelly and yes, Gary Cohn. Believe me, whatever disappointment Cohn may feel about being passed over for Fed chair is tempered by his conviction that he is absolutely needed, as arevthe others, because Trump knows he's useless.

Did I read the same article as subs?
 
2017-09-06 11:02:33 PM  
Trump has completely farked everything he has touched for at least 30 years. Everyone who makes eye contact with him gets hurt. He is actual poison. He has no real friends or allies. Everyone should get as far away from him as they can.

Or the Germans. Window = das Fenster
I think the original old English came from Latin fenestra.
 
2017-09-06 11:18:03 PM  
You all can thank the Bohemians for the word "defenestration".   I believe the actual tossing of hated pols out the window became known as the Defenestration of Prague, the word actually coined for the event.   Can't remember if it was the first window toss or the second, but they both led to war.  The Hussite War in the 15th century and that really horrible 30 Years War a couple of hundred years later.
 
2017-09-06 11:32:40 PM  
It amazes me how many still line up to kiss Trump's ring given how many people who do so end up used and discarded by Trump.

He lives in Bethesda and still wears that farking cardigan.  Sat next to him at sushi a few months ago.

Scaramucci's family life is fine.  They're smart enough to play a long game.  Don't think that every last but if gossip you heard wasn't scripted.  Scaramucci has so much influence with the MSM that he was able to get three CNN reporters fired for daring to question his tires to banks known to launder Russian money just buy stamping his feet--if you heard something about his family it's because he wanted to to hear it.

I knew I had a pic somewhere.  The yellow bits on the cardigan are the question marks.  Under it he had a shirt buttoned up to his neck. It was literally 100 degrees that day.

If I see him again, I'll let him know Fark thinks he should have the job.  Hopefully he will tell me his fark handle. ;)

Says the person who also said " I don't care for Drumpf either but he doesn't come off like a crooked asshole. ", and voted accordingly, I assume. How's that ass kissing treating you now?
