Georgians who crashed kids party and made racial epithets and death threats claim they would “never say” the words they said; sentenced to prison. My sympathy hovers around zero percent. Buckhead masterplan to allow more input on big ideas. Columbia Journalism Review: “It does not feel like transparency.” Atlanta dumps 1.47 million pages of public documents. Candidate Trump: Leave pot to the States. President Trump: Let’s go after pot even harder. Candidate Trump: Repealing ACA “so easy”. President Trump: “Nobody knew healthcare could be so complicated.” Sean Spicer: Just spoke with SECNAV nominee he won’t withdraw nomination. SECNAV Nominee: I’m withdrawing. Why, it’s almost as if the clowns are completely making stuff up! Almost.

I don’t think Trump cares one way or another about marijuana. The new attitude is from Sessions who has said “Good people don’t smoke marijuana”.

March 1, 2017 8:27 AM Log in to Reply edatlanta Trump hasn’t shown any actual interest in policy or governance at any point. You can’t continually implement policies that are diametrically opposed to what you campaigned on or hold contradictory opinions on policies like he does and claim to have a clue. When he held his press conference on his finances he said “I had no idea” about conflict of interest laws suggesting he hadn’t thought about what would happen if he won. Now, with all that said, last night seemed to be a conciliatory Trump and let’s see if he makes good on being a bit more presidential. He holds policies that I disagree with–fine. But don’t be a belligerent, antagonistic asshole who seems uninterested in working if you are President. March 1, 2017 8:34 AM Log in to Reply CoastalCat There’s teleprompter Trump. And the real Trump. Real Trump will not ever be presidential. It’s not in him. March 1, 2017 9:19 AM Log in to Reply xdog Is it true that Bradford pear trees are worse than kudzu?

He talked a great game to get the date, but now that they’re sitting together in a restaurant, he’s clueless. It wasn’t the having, it was the *getting*.

Just wait, there will be more. He has 5 years experience as a national security staffer??? Working for Hank Johnson as an intern doesn’t count.
