All lies.  Fake News.

The way that these tell all books are turning out to be popular and profitable, I hope we see a lot more of them.

Trump is becoming quite the jobs creator (in the Publishing/Printing industries)
 
2018-02-08 11:34:51 AM  
I preordered it when the title hit Audible.

Still gonna be some time till it gets released.
 
2018-02-08 11:56:26 AM  
Lordy, I hope there are books on tape.

If there is a bright side to the Trump presidency it is the resurgence of book sales.

And also apparently a shortage of tequila.

I blame Fark for that.

Someone just just center punched a cash cow on I95!

I'm sure there will be some interesting information in there. Thanks Comey.

Not to threadjack, but I'm curious:

Do you think when all this Russia stuff is said and done 5, 10 years from now and the country looks back- will "TRUMP" become a new adjective?

Right now "this Trumps that" is an idiom where "to Trump" means to have power.  But do you think like how "Mud" became a word for the dirt beneath our feet after a doctor took the 'treasonous' move to set the leg of the man who assassinated Lincoln, does that happen to Trump?  Does "to Trump" mean treason in 10 years?  Does "Trump" mean popup ads?   What does the culture do to that word?

No Donald, you are not better than Obama. I was actually proud to call Barack Obama my President. He was kind, intelligent, thoughtful, cool, and eloquent. He didn't tweet out verbal lashings at anyone who opposed him, or demand spending millions of dollars in the name of praising him. He gave the less fortunate healthcare, and basically turned a dead economy into a thriving success (which you're taking credit for).

There wasn't a time when Barack Obama was a commercial shill for Pizza Hut and McDonalds.

His legacy will be that of a leader, and Donald Trump's legacy will be that of a sick joke; the way Germany thinks of Hitler today.

I guess what I'm asking is... can Fark get on deciding what the new meaning for Trump should be so we are ready?   Someone's going to have to be first

Maybe you should just make up your own mind, with your own reasons, that you can personally defend in a logical sort of way. However, to provide one answer, perhaps Trump will come to mean a leader of a Group-Think cult who look to others to know what to think and then follow mindlessly.

And of course, you know those numbers are false, if Trump's people are stating them.
I know that Trump is using the Rasmussen outlier as his number - I'm assuming Obama's number is an aggregate, or even the lowest individual poll they could find for that date.
Nobody thinks Trump isn't lying, anymore - ever.

Hard to say, but put it this way--the name "Nixon" definitely got torched for good.

I hope there is some sort of apology to Hillary for casting her under a cloud for a critical period during the election.

Is there a word for the blue solvent/piss-crap mixture they drain out of porta-johns?   Asking for Rick Santorum.
"shiatter's full, Clark, gotta drain out the trump."
 
2018-02-08 03:32:59 PM  
I used to work in a bookstore, and we would get shipments of books with "STRICT ON SALES" printed on the side, meaning they couldn't go on sale until a certain date. It always struck me as silly... why not put the merchandise on the shelf and sell it if we had it? As I got older, I realized there were marketing plans behind these efforts that needed coordination.

The Nunes memo was all the free marketing they needed, apparently

Agreed. "You are such a trump" will cause future fists to fly and "Don't trump that up" will be a common phrase.

But then there will always be the exceptions, that 20% or so who will consider him a gravely mistreated fallen hero... but then these are the idiots think that Col Custer was a murdered military genius, The Alamo was a tactical success and that the Civil War was over taxes and isn't over yet. Those will never change or evolve...

Maybe Trump should have considered opening a brothel.  I imagine it having gold leaf for everything.  All the prostitutes would be blondes and wear gold clothing.  Trump can say he hand picked the prostitutes and made sure they were highly skilled.
