Yea, the level of retardation is breathtaking. If he was even mildly intelligent, he'd realize these people that he's shit-talking on Twitter kinda work for him. He could remake the world (or at least the US) in his image. Instead, he's being an idiot an alienating all the people that can make him the least effective president in history. I'm fine with the latter. It'll be interesting seeing how upcoming elections for congress turn out.

So, with the appointment of the special prosecutor things are looking ever worse for Trump and his administration. The Russia thing doesn't even have to be true, there could be other skeletons in the closet that might get him in trouble. And in his case, I'm inclined to believe there are. :roll: I mean, if the whole thing with him asking Comey not to investigate Flynn is true, that alone is already seriously problematic for him.

I think Kenneth Starr was orginally appointed as special prosecutor to investigate Bill Clinton's involvement in a real estate swindle, but ended up indicting him over lying under oath regarding Monica Lewinsky. So yeah, this shit can take some strange twists and turns.

Wouldn't even be surprised if this is the first step of the Republicans towards getting rid of Trump, who is way too unpredictable and volatile for their liking. I mean, it seems like every time something comes out the story goes something like this:

- Official white house report saying that it's not what it looks like and the president didn't it for reasons X or Y
- Trump the next day saying that it's exactly what it looks like and that he did it for X or Y

In most normal jobs, you'd get fired by your company for doing this shit over and over again. But the presidency isn't like a company. So they have to find another way to get rid of him.

Yea, the President of the US has quite a bit of immunity when it comes to doing stupid shit... like him leaking highly classified data to the Russians. :roll: He's wrecking our international relations, though, not to mention all the civil liberties and stuff he's rolling back by decades. Still, it's amusing in a "let's watch the world burn" kind of way. I'd love to see it come out that he really is a Russian spy and have him executed for treason, but that's just me being a bastard.

Hahaha it probably won't get to that point I guess. But with this presidency, who the hell knows? :D I don't really have any expectations about anything anymore.

To be honest, I don't think there was any conscious collusion between Trump and his administration and the Russians. As in, a clear quid pro quo. I do however believe the man is a greedy buffoon who would have jumped on any sort of financially beneficial deal he could have gotten from Russia, for the benefit of his business (without there being the clear and articulated promise of returning a favor). Especially given that it seems unlikely that Trump expected to actually win for a long time, he might have gone "might as well get something out of this".

What does seem clear by now (from every official report) is that Russia did try to influence the elections in his favor. Not because they had a secret deal, but because they realized he would be easier to 'work with' (in whatever way, even blackmailing). Otherwise his call for Russia to hack the DNC was extremely retarded, even by his standards. But collusion, probably not.

So yeah, we'll see what happens. Comey's testimony yesterday was already pretty damning, again not so much of what was actually done but the way Trump seems to go about being a president. Not to mention the fact that he is clearly pissing off people left and right on a daily basis and losing their trust. If the director of the FBI decides to keep meticulous notes of all your encounters because he is clearly afraid that "the president might lie about what was said", yeah, that is a pretty sorry state of affairs. Especially since it actually seems to be justified too. Ugh.

P.S. The covfefe thing probably illustrates this presidency the best: mistype/fall asleep, and the next day have your press secretary officially declare that it was an intential message of sorts, definitely not a mistake. :roll: DOUBLE DOWN!!

Yea, it's pretty silly. What a freaking moron. This is definitely something that will be talked about for freaking ages. I'm just hoping it does no lasting damage. I also hope this thing doesn't really go on for 4 years. Let's get him out and go for a do-over.

Man, this presidency truly is the gift that keeps giving. :D

Here I was thinking the whole Russia thing was probably untrue. Then his son tweets out proof that he was at the very least trying to collude with someone who pretended to be speaking on behalf of a Russian government official. Good lord.

Shall we just scrap this form of government and put Satis in charge? More sex, guns, drugs and rock and roll. Probably less collusion with foreign powers. Probably.

Just gain a bit of weight, grow a beard and wear sunglasses. I can totally see it.
