The walls are closing in Donny

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs is a serious person and is not entertained.
Multiple Senators in your own party are furious at your churlish behavior towards Sessions.
Your closest staff members are fighting with each other and it's getting worse.
The investigation isn't going away. And your son essentially confessed.
You put your own ass on the line about health care but have done nothing to help.
Healthcare repeal/replace is going nowhere so people are actually paying attention to the contradictions in your promises.
The walls are closing in. The lies are catching up, finally.
And Mueller is investigating your years of money laundering and you can't stop it.

Twitter is not part of the chain-of-command, Donald. Get off your flabby ass and put pen to paper if you're serious about this.

Let's hope Trump gets banned from using Twitter because of these embarrassing omissions of protocol..

They could do that. And don't give me that "Free speech" crap.

Twitter won't drop him, since he's a huge draw, but I wonder what would happen if Lord Dampnut didn't have access to the service for a week or two. The pressure from all the built up voices in his head may drive him insane.

A picture of Trump screaming into an empty KFC bucket would be priceless.

That is probably what is really concerning Trump. The stupid thing is Trump brought this on himself. If he had left Comey alone than there wouldn't be a special investigator.

This administration is doing things to my worldview. What with the oil wars and the outsourcing work to the areas with weakest worker protections, I'd wound up fairly anti-corporation, anti-war, and pro-peaceful-parts-of-government.

Come to think of it now, however, I think I'm just anti-asshole and anti-idiot.

It infuriates me that being a stupid asshole appears to be cruise control for getting power in this timeline, while people with hearts and brains get shouted down or straight-up ignored. It certainly makes being an asshole tempting, which possibly explains a lot.

If Marty and Doc could get around to fixing whatever they jiggered up this time, that would be great.

As I'm repeating elsewhere, it's part of the self-destruct sequence.
 
2017-07-27 12:44:17 PM  
That's good, but is it going to be enough to stop people lower in the chain of command from being emboldened to act shiattily?  Because that's what this administration does:  It makes statements to embolden shiatty people to act shiatty.

Yup, got the email from my chain of command just before lunch (AF civilian here). It's a very professional fark you to the president and a big message of "keep treating your coworkers and military folks like human beings and ignore the POTUS' twitter bullshiat". Good times.

Report anything that remotely could be considered offensive.  Imagine his Twitter rage if they blocked his account until he deleted a Tweet.

For all intents and purposes, his tweet was a press release. It's not uncommon to issue a press release ahead of drafting the order and sending it down.

Um... no.

That is the whole point of the messages from the service chiefs. Until Trump actually issues orders as to how to proceed, nothing is happening. The service chiefs can see the writing on the wall, and they will take their sweet ass time ensuring that whatever Trump orders is vetted, cleared, lawful, legal and above board. 

By that time, we will have a new president.
 
2017-07-27 12:53:09 PM  
It's nice to see the Joint Chiefs saying this. But there are entirely too many instances of the word 'yet', for me to feel comfortable about or to make plans for the future without accounting for the possibility of not having a job.

I was actually thinking the military might be who suggests yanking the plug.

I guess it depends on whether Trump keeps running afoul with the Joint Chiefs.

Bullshiat.

Trump will issue the order and the only thing the Chiefs will say is "Yes, Sir. Right away sir!"

As they should. It's shiatty, discriminatory and cruel, but it's a legal order.

I still really want to know who wrote Trump's tweets for this one. Proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, and a "Thank you" at the end. No way in hell was this the product of Trumplethinskin.

No I'm laughing at you because now twice you've dismissed Trump's bigoted Presidential decision and based any objection to it on "emotion."

It's not looking good for you.
