    The problem is that Trump's true believers are so enamored with him that even monumentally stupid things that come out of his mouth don't put them off the guy.

    Worries me too.

    'A whiff of grapeshot' will readily disperse angry mobs, but that requires the army on-side. Our all-volunteer force tends to self-select for authoritarians.

    Cops ditto. When the cops won't arrest alt-right assholes acting badly, it's a bad sign.

    Oh it could be lots of people. I agree not Pence. Someone who looks good on a horse, so to speak. But when the followers are ready, they find a leader.

    Trump's pick for the 4th circuit could be another judge with questionable temperament. She looks to get a little hot above the collar.


    Or maybe she had a run in with Nancy Crater.

    He said Marc Antony, not Brutus. He's talking about what's necessary for 'real social unrest,' he thinks there has to be a charismatic leader to spark it. Possibly so, but I don't think we have to worry about the slot going unfilled.

    Trump had Cohen and others threaten academic institutions into concealing his real grades while he went after Obama’s, even down to his birth certificate. Whats Trump got to hide?

    “In 2011, days after Donald Trump challenged President Barack Obama to “show his records” to prove that he hadn’t been a “terrible student,” the headmaster at New York Military Academy got an order from his boss: Find Trump’s academic records and help bury them”.

    Private Trump excels-

    “At the academy, which modeled its strict code of conduct after the nearby U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Trump loved competing to win contests for cleanest room or best-made bed. Although not known as an academic standout..”.

    ^^ What's Trump got to hide ? How can he hide anything when he can't even construct a sentence ?
    OTOH Obama is the best orator in recent times.

    To quote one of the keepers from Talos IV, "It would appear, magistrate, that the intelligence of the specimen is shockingly limited."

    Sorry, that was gratuitous. If I'm going to be honest with myself, I have to admit that not every thread is a Trek thread.

    But perhaps every Trump thread ought to be, Joe.

    Trump's favourite novel to premiere on UK stage in July
    Ivo van Hove’s adaptation of Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead will open at Manchester international festival

    Source> https://www.theguardian.com/culture...vourite-novel-to-premiere-on-uk-stage-in-july

    An excerpt...

    That’s because the trial scene in Rand’s script includes statements such as this: “I wished to come here and say that I am a man who does not exist for others.” Or: “I recognise no obligations towards men except one: to respect their freedom and take no part in a slave society.” Or this: “I do not recognise anyone’s right to one minute of my life. Nor to any part of my energy. Nor to any achievement of mine, no matter who makes the claim, how large their number or how great their need.”

    Mmmm, drumpf in a nutshell or case if you prefer.

    Manafort sentencing underway. He is in court wearing “a green jumpsuit “. He’s obviously moved on from the ostrich number to late 70s Hall & Oates.

    Trump has now removed obligation to report civilian deaths from drone strikes. When is someone going to write the song 'Don't cry for me America' ?

    There's another case in the pipeline, so perhaps justice will be done. When you get a shorter sentence for stealing millions of dollars than someone who steals $100 there's something very wrong.
