Ditto. It was one of those headline-doesn’t-match-content pieces that I’m surprised to see linked here. I’ve never seen Obama actually criticize Trump, but given the fact that Trump threw norms of respecting your predecessor out the window, I don’t think it should be news if he did.

The article on climate change was also unburdened with anything even remotely approaching a fact. Impressive, really.

How about a little fascism for lunch?
“White House advisers have discussed a potential point of leverage over their adversary (cnn), a senior administration official said: a pending merger between CNN’s parent company, Time Warner, and AT&T. Mr. Trump’s Justice Department will decide whether to approve the merger, and while analysts say there is little to stop the deal from moving forward, the president’s animus toward CNN remains a wild card.”

Nope. However; I believe Trump might be going a different route… (written in dry sarcasm font).

BGBS of Georgia is raising it’s ACA policies by roughly 40% assuming that holders will be using it and filing more claims. And if they are wrong, the ACA will require BCBS to credit back to policy holders any funds going beyond a set % of care and profit some time the year after the policy time frame has ended – 2019. Thus BGBS gets to control the argument and can just go oops, if they are over estimating. Legally just go oops, and mail off some checks – damn the costs (literally and figuratively)

Given its becomes a requirement for conservatives to interpret “What does it mean when he says words?”, it’s not unexpected that they move on to reading what they want into coherent Obama statements for dissemination to the rubes.

Good news. Trump was right. Russia didn’t interfere in the election. Putin said so himself.

“Everyone here is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA. Disgraceful!” — DJT tweet
.
Yeah, why didn’t a man who was never the head of the DNC not steal a server and give it to the CIA that never asked for it? Republican rubes want to know!

Lest it go unmentioned here before this weekend’s batch of sycophant Trump apologists appear on camera, Trump’s Homeland security adviser Tom Bossert last weekend defended Trump’s WWE tweet on ABC’s “This Week”. Now there’s judgement and integrity we can depend on to keep us secure.

Nothing says ‘batch of sycophant Trump apologists’ like his hand-picked Cabinet. Der Spiegel’s animated video does a great job throughout and starting at 1:30 nails the Cabinet members. See if you can pick out Tom Price.

I suppose this is what the Washington Times reports in lieu of the G19 + 1 summit.

Is there any action this President could take that would disrupt your blinding love of anything Trump?

Probably not. His common- sense kick-ass-ery is so refreshing and 50 years over due, that I’m like a kid in a candy store, really. I so enjoy The Left’s almost hourly melt downs over trivial crap like what I linked to above. And best of all – Tomorrow is Another Day!

I didn’t hear you object when Obama played golf.

It was the Failing Washington Post that ran the actual full length tape and disputed the European originating tape. This was all settled before you even left US air space. It’s smoke cover so other real issues are overlooked.
