Umm.... can Bolton testify now, please?

This is HOTY material right here.

Well done, subby!

Actually, the begging might do more damage to Trump than the China part. They can justify asking China for help (Oh, he was just looking out for the country, trying to get the trade war fixed, etc), but him PLEADING for it is going to be a hard pill for the MAGA crowd to swallow.

/LOL, no it won't.

According to the Republicans in the Senate, it isn't a problem when he does this.

We have a Republican problem in the Senate that is more dangerous, really, than the idiocy and narcissism problems we have in the West Wing. The narcissistic idiot in the White House is also incompetent and lazy, which somewhat mitigates that threat.

He also said invading Venezuela would be "cool" and that it was "really part of the US anyway."

farking hell.

It's dereliction of duty on the Republican Senators' behalf to allow Dump to do stupid shiat that's damaging to our national interests.

It's a crime of omission, and they all need to be voted out when their time for reelection comes.

After hearing just a few of these revelations, it's clear that Trump could have/should have been impeached for dozens of crimes.

The fact it has the News Flash tag probably hurts its chances more than your posts do.

If the link goes red then the Trump campaign might ask it for election assistance.

So Trump assumed Xi was just as impulsive and susceptible to flattery as he is. Not much of a surprise there.
 
2020-06-17 4:17:04 PM  
He gets Three Dollars $$ every time he says "China" or "Jina"
 
2020-06-17 4:17:06 PM  
If Trump wants to win, it's because he thinks it would be in the best interest of the country, which is totes cool with Senate Republicans.

FlashHarry: Umm.... can Bolton testify now, please?


Lol, no. He's not done profiting from his criminal cover ups. Even then, I don't think he cares enough of the country to be inconvenienced by Congress asking him questions.

Looks like I picked a good day to keep drinking tequila for over 24 hours straight. Regretfully, at some point the bottle will probably be empty and I will still be mostly alive.
 
2020-06-17 4:17:31 PM  
This isn't worthy of the newsflash tag. Not even the news tag.

You can't "scandal" this asshole into submission or resignation. It's another "add it to the pile" laundry list of shiat that would get any other president sacked, but because we operate this country on the honor system apparently, we lack the tools to deal with someone who shamelessly breaks the law and taunts us while doing so.

You could have testified six months ago, but chose not to. Fark you, Bolton.  I hope not a single book sells.
 
2020-06-17 4:17:51 PM  
This is the guy who refused to testify before congress so that more people would buy his book?

F*ck him.

Why am I picturing Trump throwing a temper tantrum right now in the White House and overturning furniture? Well having people do it for him anyway. He can't lift furniture. He can barely lift a water bottle.

Nobody. Review copies have been out and the embargo on releasing snippets of it is up today.

And then Trump tried to get the leader of South Korea a signed copy of Elton John's Rocket Man to convince him that the moniker was a sign of affection.

Hey, hey.

Two could be sold.  One to the House, one to the Senate.
I expect piracy to distribute the rest to the country.

Thursday: I believe there's a chance SCOTUS could unleash Trump's IRS tax returns.

That'd be a fun day in the White House.

There will be a mountain of soiled Depends in the dumpster behind the White House.  Man I feel bad for the custodians there.

Most major news outlets received advance copies under embargo that will be lifted on the 21st.

Sounds like they're starting to drop snippets here and there to keep Dump from being able to claim anything in the book was secret or privileged.
 
2020-06-17 4:20:57 PM  
The President of the United States is mentally ill.

That's what Bolton is telling us.

If anything, him "simping" for China after yelling about the "GYNA VIRUS" this year may be the catalyst.

Walker: Why am I picturing Trump throwing a temper tantrum right now in the White House and overturning furniture? Well having people do it for him anyway. He can't lift furniture. He can barely lift a water bottle.


He's "rich". He has people to set up Playskool furniture for him to toss around. He doesn't pay these people, of course.

No.  MAGA don't believe anything Bolton says.  As such, Xi will support Trump because of his greatness.

Oh, this is funny. Saw this after I posted the above thing where he encouraged Xi to send he Uighur Muslims to "camps"

I love that this Friday quality news drop shows up on Wednesday. This week is setting up to be legendary.

Glad I'm heading to the lake for a few days. Gonna be good to get out of any city.

While I am in dire need of a new book to read, and Bolton's does seem quite enticing, I just cannot give that corrupt, walrus looking motherfarker any of my money in exchange for it.

The original thing inspiring this is that Bolton wrote an op-ed where he says that Trump asked Xi to aid in his reelection campaign. He says he wants to tell us Trump's exact words but that the DOJ has forbidden it.
