(Washington Post)   In an effort to explain the scale of North Korea's nuclear program to Trump, the CIA built a model of the Hermit Kingdom's underground weapons facility and put a miniature Statue of Liberty inside it   (washingtonpost.com) divider line

We should be able to convict McConnell and Barr for Elder Abuse, or something similar. They are clearly manipulating someone incapable of rational thought to their personal benefit.

Treason is sufficient cause, and there is more than sufficient evidence.

They tried comparing the bunker's size to Trump's ego, but it became impossible to see the Earth, much less a cave in North Korea, when that comparison was illustrated.

And he lost interest in it as soon as he realized that it was a model of a place, not "a Model" from a magazine.

Trump's reply: How does this affect me? Personally?  I mean, is there a profit margin in tunnel building? That Elon guy has gotten in to this. Maybe I should. Trump Tunnels. Sounds good.  Like a tunnel only better and with my name on it, you know you're getting a quality tunnel.  Maybe a Trump tunnel to the UK or Britain? Never been done.

This fake news. I flew up to New York and the statue was still there.  Surprised no one has tried to pull that one down. Heritage. Lots of heritage right there.  Lady Liberty.

I recently re-watched Duck Soup. It's been decades since I've watched it. And... it's not funny anymore. Like, seriously, the joke of Firefly being the worst possible leader isn't a joke anymore, it's a fantastic improvement over what we actually have.

Seriously, I'd kill to have President Rufus T. Firefly. I'm not picky about who I have to kill. Point me at them.

Same thing happened to me with The Office. It was funny because the boss is so mean and incompetent and now, it's not a joke because it's been upped.

No.  He thinks that they actually stole the real Statue of Liberty and replaced it with a fake.  During the Obama years.  Many people don't know that.  But thanks to him and his authorization of Operation Restore Liberty, which was off the books by the way, because the Deep State would not have allowed an operation of this sort, Erik Prince lead a secret team of commandos to rescue the statue.  Unfortunately, the only way they could sneak the statue out of North Korea, get it through customs, was to shrink it down and hide it inside a model.  Trump authorized this, real Argo-like.  Now, the only way to get Lady Liberty back up to size is a secret operation to restore the sizing technology used for the operation, which can only be obtained if Trump gets a second term.

A child half-overhearing a conversation about how a virus reacts to disinfectant might wonder if that could help sick people, but they probably wouldn't wander out into a press conference and announce they've thought of a cure.

Just think, there was a CIA official so dumb that they thought an even bigger dumbass would understand the term "to scale"

Not gonna lie, if I was president, I'd task the CIA with making G.I. Joe scale models of foreign country's top secret underground bases all the time.

In July 2017, he batted away the CIA's conclusion that the North Koreans had developed an intercontinental missile that might soon be capable of reaching U.S. soil. How could the president be certain the agency was wrong? Because, he said, Vladimir Putin told him so.

History is going to be interesting in 10 - 15 years when people start questioning, "Wasn't it obvious? How did you not see it?"   and our best response is, "Yes but calling it out was like screaming into the wind"
 
2020-07-08 12:20:12 PM  
So this is like when I was in Branson on vacation with the family and they described the first chamber of the cave as big enough that if the Statue of Liberty was here the torch would stick out of the top? Us kids were more interested when they said they could fly a hot air balloon in it. I really wanted to do that.

So maybe put Binkie into a hot air balloon and let him go? It would have to be extra big but that seems like not a problem.

His ego can't handle the idea that he didn't win it for himself. He thought that finally, just this once, he had accomplished something. By himself. Like a big boy. But secretly, someone was helicoptering around, paving the way as usual. It hurts him more than you know.

Where are you going with that thing?

The Oval Office.  I have to brief the president on an imminent terror threat.  He thinks Cobra is what replaced ISIS.

Melanie also tells trump he has the largest penis possible, and that's why she can never have sex with him, he just wears her out.

He can't be briefed. Briefing requires him listening to others who he believes are experts & the only expert he believes exists is him. I'm sure in his mind he's thinking they come to him to learn, not to inform. When they push otherwise, he quits listening & probably absents himself from the meeting.

Yep.  My kid asks "why" about damned near everything, and since I've made it a point to answer her questions factually (using age-appropriate terms - most of the time), she actually learns new things and even starts to pull in concepts from past explanations when trying to understand whatever it is we're currently talking about.  Damned if I'm not proud of her reasoning abilities (and scared shiatless of what's going to happen when she realizes she's a lot smarter than her old man).
