Mr. Trump added, "I'm not under investigation."

Not specifically, your entire administration and transition team are under investigation.  Short of handing the Russian officials one bag that read SECRET INTEL and the Russian guys handed him a bag with a giant $ sign on it, he couldn't farking act more guilty.

Dude, Spicey Spice ain't even denying it. Let's stop with the sad little "but maybe this  particular revelation is a lie?" spinning.

Just swallow it. Trump fired Comey to obstruct the FBI investigation into his campaign's collusion with Russia to throw an American election. Then, the next day, he bragged about doing it to the exact same Russians his campaign had colluded with.

Feels bad, man.

This is the thing that really gets me about this whole thing.  People aren't like superheroes, where someone may literally be the only person capable of doing something.  Did he really think that it would just stop an official investigation if the guy leading it was gone?  Did he think that Comey was pursuing this matter entirely solo?  Did he think?

Yeah, that's a little frustrating.  It's a farking smorgasbord of farkery every day with Trump and his team.  We're like Mr. Creosote but with news.  We can't even digest the last thing we found out before the new thing that's even worse is out. And the talking heads are still discussing yesterday's bombshells despite 3 or 4 new things to discuss today - but they haven't sorted it all out either.

I mean, it's great because it's like a Gish Gallup of shiatstorms that the administration has no hope to refute because even if half of them are wrong or embellished there's still more than enough to prove that Trump shouldn't be President and most of his staff should be out of a job as well if not behind bars.

The idea, the official suggested, was to create a sense of obligation with Russian officials and to coax concessions out of Mr. Lavrov - on Syria, Ukraine and other issues - by saying that Russian meddling in last year's election had created enormous political problems for Mr. Trump

So, essentially ...
'The way you Russians meddled in our election to get me into the White House has caused so many problems now that I had to fire the director of the FBI who was investigating me. Now you owe me.'
Right.


I was wondering about this part, too.  Why would Russia give a shiat?  How is this a negotiating tactic?

George was fairly intelligent and could occasionally get out of shiat.  He was just completely amoral.

I very much see this trip ending with Trump running away to Russia.  I'm a little surprised they let him leave.

A few days ago I started thinking this could be Watergate and the OJ Simpson Bronco Chase combined.  With this news I think the possibility of that is greater and greater.

Yeah, I use that one all the time. Tell the person you're trying to get concessions out of that you've just solved a big problem you had in a way that makes you look like an upset toddler. Works like magic!

I swear they've completely stopped trying. Can't blame 'em.

I said a few months ago that I hoped his presidency ends with him doing a sad, fat old man shuffle across the tarmac to a waiting Russian diplomatic vehicle. This may be our chance to see that.

Trump is smart, compassionate, and has the best interests of out of work coal miners and other down trodden workers of this once great and proud nation. He wants to lower health care costs, increase taxes on business to fund our infastructure preparing us for the challenges facing us in the 21st century. He feels bad breaking the enomulents clause and having his spokeswoman endorse his daughters company on TV. He will relinguish his business interests and release tax returns so all Americans, even liberal democrats can get a better understanding of his money dealings. He has tremendous self control and can read long and indepth security briefing reports without losing interest, even if they don't have his name, maps, graphs and charts.

You're behind the spin, man. The White House angle is that Trump did say it, but it was a super secret 4-D chess negotiating tactic where he was reminding the Russians how much they owed him for, you know, causing him all these headaches by stealing an election for him.

Yes, that's even dumber than the obvious "he didn't really say it" line you tried to go with. The White House isn't thinking this one through either.

The problem is everyone who has half a brain can see through it, but the people who believe in Trump eat it up.  This will just further their resolve.

It's kinda scary how deep their resolve is.  I wonder what some of these RWNJ will do if he actually gets impeached.  Most of these folks are the militia types.  I wonder if they'll prove that Right Wing militias are truly a bigger threat then Islamist terrorists in the US.

Comey kept going on both sides of the fence.  it was not his job to hold press briefings.  I'm going to write a memo and call the NY Times.  It's like, hey, I heard that this guy called this other guy and one of them said he had a memo but no one could see it but only hear it as I read it.

Silly farker...  No one is actually calling them or writing them.  They are making this crap up out of wholecloth.

dkulprit: Gordon Bennett: A third government official briefed on the meeting defended the president, saying Mr. Trump was using a negotiating tactic when he told Mr. Lavrov about the "pressure" he was under. The idea, the official suggested, was to create a sense of obligation with Russian officials and to coax concessions out of Mr. Lavrov - on Syria, Ukraine and other issues - by saying that Russian meddling in last year's election had created enormous political problems for Mr. Trump.

I love seeing this wankers twist and turn and lie and distort in order to attempt to polish the turd in the Oval Office only to have Emperor Commodus himself completely undermine their carefully concocted image of him every time he shiats out another tweet.

The problem is everyone who has half a brain can see through it, but the people who believe in Trump eat it up.  This will just further their resolve.

It's kinda scary how deep their resolve is.  I wonder what some of these RWNJ will do if he actually gets impeached.  Most of these folks are the militia types.  I wonder if they'll prove that Right Wing militias are truly a bigger threat then Islamist terrorists in the US.

This is the thing that really gets me about this whole thing.  People aren't like superheroes, where someone may literally be the only person capable of doing something.  Did he really think that it would just stop an official investigation if the guy leading it was gone?  Did he think that Comey was pursuing this matter entirely solo?  Did he think?

So it's fake news.  No sources and  no copies.  Anyone can pretend to read a document.   This is stupid.  And people fall for it every damn day.  If someone confirmed the broad outline than they didn't confirm the idiotic specifics did they?

"Mr. Spicer said. "The investigation would have always continued, and obviously, the termination of Comey would not have ended it. Once again, the real story is that our national security has been undermined by the leaking of private and highly classified conversations.""

The whining, hypocrisy and projecting here is just... there are no more words.
And, why yes, our national security was undermined by the leaking of private and highly classified conversations: Trump revealing code word level Israeli secrets to russian embassadors.

These are 100% unforced errors. It's... Something Wonderful.

Doubleodoug: That's the defense du jour. No one is so stupid as to think firing the head of the FBI would make the investigation go away. Therefore Trump couldn't have fired him to derail the investigation.


Trump asked Comey to make the Flynn investigation to go away. Then fired Comey and said the pressure was off. Yes, he is dumb enough to think it would have ended there.

Remember all of Trump's previous companies are LLCs with 3-5 employees and everyone else is a contractor. He made his money by having enough resources to threaten the contractors he worked with. So while he "negotiated" with them he had a gun under the table to ensure things went his way.

Trump has wandered out onto a field where his money and previous experience don't mean a hill of beans. In his personal empire if he said "This ends now", what ever it was ended. In the government the two other branches of government can throw a monkey wrench into what ever you want to do (see the last 4 months). Even parts of the administration are expected to operate without direct presidential oversight to prevent conflicts of interest (ie Justice, the AG, the FBI). The best the president can do is slow or stall these investigations.

This is because The President is President and not a King. Trump is used to being a King of his little land, where he could do what he wanted in it and was beholden to no one. The Presidency is the exact opposite - The president is beholden to everyone and is severely restricted on what he can do without cooperation of the other two branches of government.

I've read this a few times to see if this was truthful or sarcastic and I just can't tell.

Several White House officials and even Snekretary himself admitted that these comments, the notes and transcripts were absolutely true and irrefutable.  So if all of these people say its true, are you saying that it's still all made up?

You're behind the spin, man. The White House angle is that Trump did say it, but it was a super secret 4-D chess negotiating tactic where he was reminding the Russians how much they owed him for, you know, causing him all these headaches by stealing an election for him.

Yes, that's even dumber than the obvious "he didn't really say it" line you tried to go with. The White House isn't thinking this one through either.


You are derping hard slow down. Where did I say he didn't say it? Comey was a nut job. I would be relieved if an investigation involving me wasn't headed by a whacko wouldn't you?

I very much see this trip ending with Trump running away to Russia.  I'm a little surprised they let him leave.

A few days ago I started thinking this could be Watergate and the OJ Simpson Bronco Chase combined.  With this news I think the possibility of that is greater and greater.

Elfich: Doubleodoug: That's the defense du jour. No one is so stupid as to think firing the head of the FBI would make the investigation go away. Therefore Trump couldn't have fired him to derail the investigation.

Trump asked Comey to make the Flynn investigation to go away. Then fired Comey and said the pressure was off. Yes, he is dumb enough to think it would have ended there.

Remember all of Trump's previous companies are LLCs with 3-5 employees and everyone else is a contractor. He made his money by having enough resources to threaten the contractors he worked with. So while he "negotiated" with them he had a gun under the table to ensure things went his way.

Trump has wandered out onto a field where his money and previous experience don't mean a hill of beans. In his personal empire if he said "This ends now", what ever it was ended. In the government the two other branches of government can throw a monkey wrench into what ever you want to do (see the last 4 months). Even parts of the administration are expected to operate without direct presidential oversight to prevent conflicts of interest (ie Justice, the AG, the FBI). The best the president can do is slow or stall these investigations.

This is because The President is President and not a King. Trump is used to being a King of his little land, where he could do what he wanted in it and was beholden to no one. The Presidency is the exact opposite - The president is beholden to everyone and is severely restricted on what he can do without cooperation of the other two branches of government.


Wow genius! He fired a nut job, then after a special investigator was appointed breathed a sigh of relief! All went away! You libs must already be spinning and preparing for Mueller saying yea I got nothing quit the Russian derp already.

So it's fake news.  No sources and  no copies.  Anyone can pretend to read a document.   This is stupid.  And people fall for it every damn day.  If someone confirmed the broad outline than they didn't confirm the idiotic specifics did they? No they just wanted the words official and confirm in the same sentence for the retards to suck it up.  Way to go.

I've read this a few times to see if this was truthful or sarcastic and I just can't tell.

Several White House officials and even Snekretary himself admitted that these comments, the notes and transcripts were absolutely true and irrefutable.  So if all of these people say its true, are you saying that it's still all made up?

Even they can't swallow the "uhrm, negotiating tactic" spin. They know as well as anyone else exactly what it would mean if Trump really did reassure Russian agents that he fired the FBI director to obstruct the FBI investigation of Trump and Russia.

Denial is the only alternative to admitting Trump really is a con man who played them for suckers.

Good enough?  Or do you actually need to be present yourself in order to believe it?

This isn't science, it's more like court.  And it's the New York Times, not the National Enquirer.  If a number of reliable witnesses say something happened, it's ok to believe them.  Really.

I very much see this trip ending with Trump running away to Russia.  I'm a little surprised they let him leave.

A few days ago I started thinking this could be Watergate and the OJ Simpson Bronco Chase combined.  With this news I think the possibility of that is greater and greater.

I said a few months ago that I hoped his presidency ends with him doing a sad, fat old man shuffle across the tarmac to a waiting Russian diplomatic vehicle. This may be our chance to see that.

If they helped steal the election as you all fantasize wouldn't they know this? Man those Russians are brilliant and retarded all in one neat little package!  Comments seem like relief that a nut job with a penchant for political manipulation wouldn't be anywhere near a position to make up some more shiat.

You're behind the spin, man. The White House angle is that Trump did say it, but it was a super secret 4-D chess negotiating tactic where he was reminding the Russians how much they owed him for, you know, causing him all these headaches by stealing an election for him.

Yes, that's even dumber than the obvious "he didn't really say it" line you tried to go with. The White House isn't thinking this one through either.

You are derping hard slow down. Where did I say he didn't say it? Comey was a nut job. I would be relieved if an investigation involving me wasn't headed by a whacko wouldn't you?

Uh oh, come to think of it, that could be Trump's "get out of jail free" card. Impeaching a president because they suffer from narcissistic personality disorder, compulsive lying, paranoid delusions, and a learning disability would violate the ADA's protection of accommodating his challenges.

AckAckAck: Jaws_Victim: This prompted one of the guests to comment that the Russia investigation is a refresh story, where you literally have to hit refresh on your web browser constantly to stay updated.

We can officially label this the F5F5F5F5 administration.

Or:

Trump is not the 45th president, he's the F5th president.


So he's the 245th president?

munko: another scandal created when someone called someone and read a memo?  oh please, this is getting so unhinged.  so what anyway.  he is right.  he had pressure relieved from a idiot nutjob who would not do his job and wanted to grandstand. Comey kept going on both sides of the fence.  it was not his job to hold press briefings.  I'm going to write a memo and call the NY Times.  It's like, hey, I heard that this guy called this other guy and one of them said he had a memo but no one could see it but only hear it as I read it.

I sound fat: No one was recording.  An unnamed official "read" a "document" to a Times reporter.

The times did not see the document, and one would have to question why such a document would even exist.

Much like they didn't ask to see the Comey Memo, you know the one that directly contradicts what Comey has said about the situation?

All it takes now to make an accusation in this mess is a call to a NYT reporter with an unverifiable story about something supposedly exists.

This is the NEW YORK TIMES.  they cant even ask to SEE a document or ask any questions about it?

"Nut job" sacker is too long a phrase.

Trump could have been more presidential and deride Comey by calling him a nerd -- even including a sense of having a moral compass, being professional, following rules, and all that Lisa Simpson would be.

But instead Trump does the Nutsack.

Man those Russians are brilliant and retarded all in one neat little package!  Comments seem like relief that a nut job with a penchant for political manipulation wouldn't be anywhere near a position to make up some more shiat.

You're behind the spin, man. The White House angle is that Trump did say it, but it was a super secret 4-D chess negotiating tactic where he was reminding the Russians how much they owed him for, you know, causing him all these headaches by stealing an election for him.

Yes, that's even dumber than the obvious "he didn't really say it" line you tried to go with. The White House isn't thinking this one through either.

You are derping hard slow down. Where did I say he didn't say it? Comey was a nut job. I would be relieved if an investigation involving me wasn't headed by a whacko wouldn't you?

So Comey is crazy, now that Trump said it? Christ, you people are so easy to dupe.

They're a cult. Whatever the cult leader says becomes the new reality. Whether it contradicts things he said previously is irrelevant; that's all down the Memory Hole.

Did he, or did you read a headline that said he didn't deny it?

Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, did not dispute the account.
In a statement, he said that Mr. Comey had put unnecessary pressure on the president's ability to conduct diplomacy with Russia on matters such as Syria, Ukraine and the Islamic State.

Again: even the White House isn't calling this fake. They're just spinning it. You guys got nothin'.

Toddler trump: "But I DIDN'T eat any chocolate chip cookies."

Parent: "And I never accused you of that."

Toddler trump: "BUT I DIDN'T EAT ANY!!!"

Parent: "Sweetie, are you saying you ate chocolate chip cookies this afternoon without permission?"

Several years and 3,000 miles ago I was hanging out at a Denny's (I know, right?  That just makes the rest better,) and overhear from the booth behind me the rapidly hissed/whispered conversation approximately as follows:

"Wait a minute, your add said SMFM, if you're single why are you wearing a wedding ring?"
"No, no, it was Straight Male For Male.  I *AM* married."
"Then what the hell was the blowjob about?"
"That...was just a blowjob.  I'm *MARRIED*.  I'm not gay."

I'm not sure if one of them stormed out, or what, because it ended there as far as I could tell, but I've had a healthy respect/skepticism of abbreviations ever since.

Preston Preston: chuggernaught: This baffles me.  Calling it a negotiating tactic is not the same as saying he didn't say it at all.  In fact, they just confirmed that he did say it!

It is also worth mentioning that having Spicey on live TV tell everyone that it was a negotiating tactic... negates its value as a negotiating tactic.  Explaining a bluff or whatever sort of makes it, oh I don't know, not work.  Right?


Actually, everything about the statement ruins it as a negotiating tactic. This is the gist of what Trump said:
Trump:  You Russians sure put me in an awkward position with your interference in our election!  I'm facing a lot of political pressure.
Trump: Except the guy investigating me was crazy!  So crazy, I bet no one would believe him.  So I guess there was no political pressure after all.
Trump:  And even if there was political pressure, I relieved it by firing the guy and ending the investigation.
Trump: And actually, I am not under investigation, so there was no pressure in the first place!

Trump basically said that the political pressure on him was imaginary or non-existent, and that he was able to resolve the issue himself, and yet somehow the Russians owe him a favor for this?  Even if we lived in an alternate universe where this was NOT an admission of obstruction of justice, nothing about Trump's statement makes any sense as a negotiating tactic.  AND his comments are a tacit acknowledgement that there was Russian interference in our election, something that Trump has vehemently denied in the past.   Trump made things worse for himself again.

What does that have to do with the price of ducks in peking?  If Trump had fired Comey day 1 it could have been seen as some redeeming quality but instead he congratulated Comey for his BS and then later fired him supposedly because of those actions but then went on to literally say he was doing it to obstruct justice.

I had no idea that the Watergate Hotel had a wave pool. Apparently it is more up-to-date than I knew.

Trump, of course, has a giant water slide. It is the greatest slide in the world. Big enough for Rosie and Donnie to slide simultaneously. He bused in the whole Senate to ride it. It is nicknamed the Tricky Dick because it starts off in all directions and ends up going plop! at the end.

This is as stupid as most of the shiat you post. No one cares about sucking dicks. Sucking dicks isn't automatically a homosexual thing, for one thing. Men suck dicks, women suck dicks, trans people suck dicks and pointing out the sucking thereof isn't any kind of homophobic slur. It is a commentary on the power structure of the relationship though, suggesting the cock sucker is the submissive, owned one in the relationship.

There will be just as much martyrdom and just as many conspiracy theories if he gets perp-walked. The initial arrest - "it's a coup by Obama and Clinton!" The trial - "lieberal so-called judge overreaches!" The evidence - "faked, false flag, staffers were Dem spies who sabotaged innocent Trump!" And so on.

Xythero: propasaurus: A third government official briefed on the meeting defended the president, saying Mr. Trump was using a negotiating tactic when he told Mr. Lavrov about the "pressure" he was under. The idea, the official suggested, was to create a sense of obligation with Russian officials and to coax concessions out of Mr. Lavrov - on Syria, Ukraine and other issues - by saying that Russian meddling in last year's election had created enormous political problems for Mr. Trump

So, essentially ...
'The way you Russians meddled in our election to get me into the White House has caused so many problems now that I had to fire the director of the FBI who was investigating me. Now you owe me.'
Right.

I was wondering about this part, too.  Why would Russia give a shiat?  How is this a negotiating tactic?

I love seeing this wankers twist and turn and lie and distort in order to attempt to polish the turd in the Oval Office only to have Emperor Commodus himself completely undermine their carefully concocted image of him every time he shiats out another tweet.

This baffles me.  Calling it a negotiating tactic is not the same as saying he didn't say it at all.  In fact, they just confirmed that he did say it!

With a normal president, that might have been the strategy--catch 'em off guard! Trump doesn't have a guard, though.

With Trump, half the fun is watching him melt down. They've probably instructed their reporters on the plane to remind Trump that he can totally still tweet from Air Force One.

Has this guy even watched a TV show where an actor played the president? I mean, dude, could he even pretend to kind of have any sort of plan or sense of self control, self image, and what his job entails?

It's like watching a beginning skier take moguls. Moving uneasily along for ten seconds, complete blow out, gathers gear, moves shakily along, face plant, dusts off, struggles upright aaaaaand he's down.

As a sociopathic narcissist; he believes each face plant is a cruel and unwarranted attack by outsiders, he sees each act (no matter how petty or irrelevant) as him being a strong and decisive big-boy leader, and he sees his emotional outbursts and embarrassing meltdowns as those powerful scenes where the tv-movie-president gets real emotional and then acts decisively against all the incompetently evil "baddies" of the show.

Old Man Winter: So, somebody wrote notes that said he said it?  Or is there actual evidence?


Notes are important in some jobs. Without your written notes from date x  to support your verbal account on date y, youre just telling lies about date x. Now we have people dismissing notes as not being important or worthy of consideration. comey did something typical and commonplace by writing a memo about his interaction with the president.

The nut job attention whore milks it a little more.

I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille!

Good to know that you still regurgitate the balderdash that comes out of your master's mouth.

Re-write screw up. Forgot to inflect the word "come". Fixt.

Wow. Classy.  Are your from the Colbert school or do homophobic insults come naturally to you?

This is as stupid as most of the shiat you post. No one cares about sucking dicks. Sucking dicks isn't automatically a homosexual thing, for one thing. Men suck dicks, women suck dicks, trans people suck dicks and pointing out the sucking thereof isn't any kind of homophobic slur. It is a commentary on the power structure of the relationship though, suggesting the cock sucker is the submissive, owned one in the relationship.

Sorry you're sad about Putin owning Trumperdink the Orange.

"Notes" makes it into "science".
Now just who the Hell can deny science?

Toxic Park: I just can't stop thinking about how, in the alternate timeline where Trump never ran, or at least lost out in his prez run, how much happier he would've been. Just going on about his charmed life as usual. But because he just couldn't help himself to run, now he's in the biggest shiatstorm of his life.


Thinking of his self induced frazzlement makes cats all over the known universe happy.
