World’s most popular Airbnb is in some Atlanta guy’s backyard. Really. Fayette County plays well with others. At least, where water is concerned. It’s a trap! Fire-sale 747’s to become the next Air Force Ones. But we wanted to know the grandchildren’s names! WH press conferences are always so fun and exciting! Ya know, some people have just way too much time on their hands. LOL Eclipse news. The HBO hackers call themselves…wait for it…LittleFinger66. Oh, SMU, say this ain’t so. Does this mean it will stop turning into the Krispy Kreme? Officer helps kid monster-proof her house.

Y’all got any specials?” August 4, 2017 8:28 AM Log in to Reply Mr. Bear “Hiya John. Long time no hear. Yeah, I got a couple sweet 47’s out on the back lot that some commie pinko backed out on. I’ll give ’em to you at a reasonable price and throw in the undercoating and new-plane smell for free. The toilet seats are going to cost you, though…..” August 4, 2017 8:55 AM Log in to Reply blakeage80 “If they’re the dash eight models, throw in a set of tires and you’ve got yourself a buyer!” August 4, 2017 10:55 AM Log in to Reply Mr. Bear “Tires! What do you think I’m made of, rubber? [pause] Aw, John, you’re right. We go back a long way together, so I’m giving you a nice set of Michelin’s, made with genuine Vietnamese rubber. Now you know that these birds are el strippo; they only have the crew seats and one lavatory. Everything else is aftermarket. And, because we’re buddies, I’ll even arrange financing. Even with your credit, we can get you set up. We got Illinois a dozen planes for Chicago last week. I’ll get the paperwork underway. Say hi to the Mrs. for me.” August 4, 2017 2:33 PM Log in to Reply blakeage80 I don’t know who you are, but this made my Friday a little better. LOL August 4, 2017 4:52 PM Ellynn Maybe both of you should hang out more often.. 😉 August 4, 2017 6:16 PM Dave Bearse A day after it is reported (or for the Republican reader, a day after the fake news) that Trump fabricated phone conversations with the leaders of both the Boy Scouts and Mexico, transcripts of some of Trump’s actual conversations have been leaked. “[W]e have the drug lords in Mexico that are knocking the hell out of our country. They are sending drugs to Chicago, Los Angeles, and to New York. Up in New Hampshire — I won New Hampshire because New Hampshire is a drug-infested den — is coming from the southern border.”—WH transcript of Trump speaking with the Mexican President. . Classic Trump, Trump won the NH GOP Presidential primary, but not the General Election. The quote was one of many narcissistic remarks that you can read for yourself: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2017/politics/australia-mexico-transcripts/?utm_term=.48f9d46b1560 . So is NH better or worse than “crime-infested” Atlanta? Doesn’t matter. The whole country is a total hell-hole, if the White House building itself is as Trump has said, a “real dump” August 4, 2017 8:33 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse “He speaks loudly and carries a small stick,” — Mexican official’s quip after reading the leaked transcripts of Trump’s conversation with the Mexican President. August 6, 2017 5:35 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Speculation and made up s—t that follows the GOP President’s lead, except it’s motivation is fun, not the greed and self-aggrandizement that is Trump’s primary motivation…. . Wouldn’t it hilarious if “I alone can fix it” Trump turns out to be a leading cause of investigation and charges that could put Don Jr in jail? Recall that Trump, while flying back from the G-20, personally crafted Don Jr’s lie that Jr’s meeting with the Russians was about adoptions. Only hours before the flight, Trump had met privately with Putin at the G-20. . Maybe Putin and Trump colluded at that meeting that their story would be that their discussion was about adoptions—there would be no one but Trump, Putin and Putin’s hand-picked translator to say otherwise—should news of their meeting become public in a way that necessitated one or the other or both explain what was discussed. Then Trump, impulsive idiot that he is, promptly decides to co-opt the adoption explanation for Jr’s meeting. Maybe the adoption bit was a Putin idea that he planted with Trump, knowing it would be revealed a transparent lie! Putin after all is a lot sharper that Fox News, Trumps main source of ideas and information. . Sure, in actuality a fool father causing a son the prospect of jail time is no laughing matter, but Don Jr would be pardoned—Trump has already checked into that, so there’s no chance of jail.

It seems somebody VERY close to Trump is leaking. Which is weird. August 4, 2017 10:16 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope It’s always been people close to Trump. It will always be people close to Trump. These leaks are happening because there’s no effective management system in the White House and each competing faction is trying to take down the others or make themselves look better by leaking stories to the press. Jared and Ivanka leak. Pence definitely leaks. Bannon leaks. Preibus leaked. Scaramucci (RIP) leaked. Spicer leaked. Conway leaks. Sanders leaks. Hicks leaks. It’s a cadre of self-serving hacks and goons… of course they’re going to try and stab each other in the back. . The only person who isn’t leaking is Stephen Miller. That’s because everyone in DC has his number listed in their phone as “creepy guy, DO NOT ANSWER!” Seriously, Stephen Miller is like if a kidnapping van became a person. August 4, 2017 11:04 AM Log in to Reply xdog Yeah Miller could play the faceless bureaucrat who orders the displacement of entire towns. Mr. Internal Exile. Jeff Sessions’ boy. August 4, 2017 11:49 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Don’t forget it can be someone who told others that told others, one of which leaked. A WH where staff and aides are prohibiting from communicating amongst themselves about what the Precedent says and does would be even worse that the current dysfunction.
