Well, if 45 didn't believe in it, it's not true. Nothing to see here.
 
2022-08-14 4:29:09 PM  
The only thing Trump believes in is his own importance.
 
2022-08-14 4:37:23 PM  
I wish he didn't believe in gravity and put that to the test by stepping off his NYC penthouse balcony, and see how that works out for him.
 
2022-08-14 4:45:11 PM  
He certainly believes in his taxes and business records being protected from any review but national security means nothing beyond what he can get by selling national defense materials to whoever will pay him the most. The Saudis have already paid kush 2 billion for some nuclear secrets and TFG would want more.
 
2022-08-14 5:40:58 PM  
And 40+% of people would vote for him again in a heartbeat.

You put his ass in irons through now

And arrest every motherfarker that heads to and airport waiting 48 hours of that
 
2022-08-14 6:07:02 PM  
is that supposed to be an excuse?  Franky, fark Kelly.  I'm not interested in his farking opinion.  He's another dildo that belongs in jail.
 
2022-08-14 6:26:20 PM  
So if the documents have been 'declassified' let's see them.
 
2022-08-14 6:37:52 PM  
Obviously.  Trump thinks he's Jesus Christ, and so do his followers.

This list seems short even if it's only been a week.  They're barely averaging three new excuses a day.

We're living in 'Trump-vision'

Time, truth, and even simple aggregate math becomes distorted by the pure stream of bullshiat.

OK John Kelly. Can you take the time to do a nightly news spot, or the Today show????
 
2022-08-14 8:26:53 PM  
To believe is to accept without evidence.

Except to provide that explanation, I have not used the phrase "I believe" in years.

They're coming up with excuses like John Belushi trying to talk down his crazy ex.
 
2022-08-14 8:27:49 PM  
It's not that he didn't believe in it, he believes the rules don't apply to him. Hence the statement he could murder someone in time Square and his concern isn't jail but votes.

It's going to get interesting between now and the mid-terms I fully believe the GQP will not be able to contain any of this nor distance themselves.  It's going to get really interesting when the 1/6 hearings resume.

One of his messages that seemed to resonate with Republican voters was that Donald Trump was an outsider who came from outside the world of politics.

Yeah, and his temperament is his single greatest asset.

Thank you for doing this.

Scrutinized individually, the excuses don't hold up.
Now that I see them all together, unfocus my eyes and take them all in at once, it makes complete sense.

"A Trump advisor said the former president's reluctance to relinquish the records stems from his belief that many items created during his term--photos, notes, even a model of Air Force One built to show off a new paint job he commissioned--are now his personal property."

Wouldn't it be great fun if he's prosecuted for theft of the model first, imprisoned for it, and they can prosecute the other crimes while he's in the stir without access to TV cameras?
 
2022-08-14 8:37:50 PM  
I have no trouble believing Trump doesn't believe what he is told. He doesn't want bad news, and has tantrums when he gets bad news, so people only tell him nice things. Then he gets booed at a baseball games, turns out he is being lied to.

I am sure people have also tried for a long time to control what he knows because he will give away important information so he can look important.

TFG and his ilk are agents for Axis-backed international business interests.

Articles like this only seek to legitimize axis propaganda.

The non-stop Trump garbage since 2015 is part of the media's plan to hack the west and undermine 95% of the population's health and wealth.

We're past the point of the legal system here, the legal system fast-becoming the "injustice system."

I'm pretty sure King George III or Caligula would look at this and deem any one of them reasonable.  That's not exactly great company to have in this situation.

MattytheMouse: ...
I'd have lunch with Carrie Fischer now. Last I saw, she's matured into quite the lovely old lady.

A friend got a kiss from her a few years ago, before she transformed into the force. He had done a near photo-realistic painting of her from this picture of her and got flown over to Hong Kong (iirc) for its presentation to her. We were all.... quite, quite envious when he told us.

That was a fast jump from 15 to 20 points.

Yesterday it went from 7 to 14.

I hate to question you but, are you sure this is all of them?  Seems like there have already been 50 excuses.

We're living in 'Trump-vision'

Time, truth, and even simple aggregate math becomes distorted by the pure stream of bullshiat.


The Gish Gallop, brought to you by Creationists.
If you can't win logically, baffle them with bullsh@#t.

 "A Trump adviser said the former president's reluctance to relinquish the records stems from his belief that many items created during his term - photos, notes, even a model of Air Force One built to show off a new paint job he had commissioned - are now his personal property, despite a law dating to the 1970s that decreed otherwise."


Yeah sounds about right! Egomaniacs think they're above any law or moral code

It would be a long separate list of the people or agencies Trump said he knows more than, out loud, on the record.

Just off the top of my head, it would include his generals, doctors, the FBI, other intelligence agencies, Angela Merkel, judges, and his various attorneys.

ReaverZ: I have no trouble believing Trump doesn't believe what he is told. He doesn't want bad news, and has tantrums when he gets bad news, so people only tell him nice things. Then he gets booed at a baseball games, turns out he is being lied to.

I am sure people have also tried for a long time to control what he knows because he will give away important information so he can look important.


I could have sworn that was established during his presidency, as he mentioned something about spies to someone he shouldn't have and there was a huge circus as a result.  I could be misremembering this, though.  The time line has really been dodgy the last 5 years.

"19. Like President Nixon said, "if the president does it, then it is not illegal.""

I thought that was Mitchell or... yeah the autopsy by David Frost.  Dick thought he was much more intelligent then that British TV guy.

This list seems short even if it's only been a week.  They're barely averaging three new excuses a day.


It's been just over 50 _hours_ since the news even broke...
