Did make me chuckle.

A guy on Twitter took a pic of Trump, and 'normalised' it to see how he would look (using his natural skin colour, and hair minus brushover, etc)
https://twitter.com/stonecold2050/status/109429363...

I'd have a bit more respect for him if he was willing to show himself as he really is. But that involves something called "the truth", an alien concept to Trump.
Are you guys trying to say that his orange complexion isn’t entirely natural? I assumed it was down to his good genes.

It doesn’t matter what he looks like or what he says, they’ll still re-elect him in 2020.

Mnuchin is already resisting appearing before the Ways and Means Committee, according to Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.), while Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar is refusing to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee about the Trump administration’s controversial family-separation policy.

Now Mnuchin is resisting testifying to the Financial Services Committee, over trump admins controversial move to ease Russia sanctions on Companies involving Deripaska. They also failed to deliver documents.

House Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters is 'in talks' with Mnuchin. Do we expect another subpoena?

The GOP refused the dem suggesting of having election day as a holiday, but the small city of Sandusky, Ohio, has worked this out. They've declared Election Day a paid holiday — by swapping it out with Columbus Day.

Others should do this.

https://www.npr.org/2019/02/08/692771542/sandusky-...

Add that to the Dems now challenging the Reps thats there's no voter fraud, but GOP voter suppression and it could start something.

Billionaires flooded Republican coffers just before the tax cuts passed. From the time the tax bill was introduced until the end of the year, dozens of billionaires and millionaires dramatically boosted contributions, giving $31.1 million in 2 months.

meanwhile, trump's trade policies have sent U.S. agricultural exports plunging, exacerbating already difficult economic conditions facing farmers. Average farm income has fallen to near 15-year lows under Trump, and in some areas, farm bankruptcies are soaring.

AMI's lawyers say it wasn't blacmail or extortion
“It absolutely is not extortion and not blackmail,” Elkan Abramowitz said on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday. “That is not extortion because all that AMI wanted was the truth.”

So drop it or we publish isn't blackmail?

He also said the source: “It was not the White House. It was not Saudi Arabia,”
https://nypost.com/2019/02/10/ami-lawyer-national-...


Now the interesting thing is that Flynn helped sell phone hacking software to the Saudi's as reported by Huffpost in 2017
While serving as a top campaign aide to Donald Trump, former national security adviser Michael Flynn made tens of thousands of dollars on the side advising a company that sold surveillance technology that repressive governments used to monitor activists and journalists.

It's so damn exhausting. The corruption with this administration is absolutely relentless, and it is still not over.

Of course, 30-40% of Americans either have not noticed, don't care, or, worst of all, actually believe the orange turd.

House Foreign Affairs Ranking Republican Mike McCaul says the Trump admin is failing to meet the requirements of the Global Magnitsky Act over Jamal Khashoggi, urges the admin to "immediately comply with the requirements of the law."

This is a republican saying trump Administration isn't following the law with respect to Magnitsky Act regarding Jamal Khashoggi's murder.

Ted Lieu has tweeted
@tedlieu
Dear @SecPompeo: I look forward to you testifying before the Foreign Affairs Committee. Some questions:
-Why are you ignoring the law?
-Did #SaudiArabia give--or promise to give--money to @realDonaldTrump or Kushner, or the Trump Inaugural Committee?

Just a reminder that the UN investigators said "Evidence shows ‘brutal’ killing of Saudi journalist ‘planned and perpetrated’ by State officials"
https://news.un.org/en/story/2019/02/1032241

The US intelligence have intercepts
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/02/us/politics/cro...

Including the National Security Agency and other American spy agencies have uncovered an intercepted conversation in which Prince Mohammed tells a top aide more than a year before Mr. Khashoggi’s murder that if the self-exiled journalist cannot be enticed back to Saudi Arabia, he should be brought back by force. And if that didn’t work, the prince is heard to say, he would go after Mr. Khashoggi “with a bullet.”

The Daily Beast are saying it was the brother of Bezos lover that handed over the texts

The brother of Jeff Bezos’ mistress, Lauren Sanchez, supplied the couple’s racy texts to the National Enquirer, multiple sources inside AMI, the tabloid’s parent company, told The Daily Beast.

Another source who has been in extensive communication with senior leaders at AMI confirmed that Michael Sanchez first supplied Bezos’ texts to the Enquirer.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/mistress-lauren-sanc...


How does a brother get hold of a phone and dump off any salacious texts and pictures?

Axios have more of trumps schedules, despite the White House hunt for the leaker.
It shows again trump mostly spends his time as 'executive time' and lunching
https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/5733531-Ax...


trump thinks that watch Fox and Friends and Tweeting racist remarks counts as working

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

The media was able to get my work schedule, something very easy to do, but it should have been reported as a positive, not negative. When the term Executive Time is used, I am generally working, not relaxing. In fact, I probably work more hours than almost any past President.....

Warren took to winding him up
Trump might be in jail by the time Election Day comes, Elizabeth Warren said on her first full day of campaigning.

"By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be President," Warren said. "In fact, he may not even be a free person."
https://edition.cnn.com/2019/02/10/politics/elizab...


I guess one of trumps unintended achievements is that his misogynist behaviour has empowered women to stand up and be counted. Most Women in the house, most women running for all political positions not just for president.



Lets remember that trump wouldn't got a a ww2 memorial because it was raining
