it's only so trump's ego has a spot more space
slow news day
Rex Tillerson says poison used on ex-spy 'clearly' came from Russia
Couldn't possibly be related. Nope.
Haspel as new CIA top dog. interesting CV. Not afraid to get hands dirty
The New C.I.A. Deputy Chief’s Black-Site Past
Apparently he was informed on Friday, so could be that he felt free to say what he wanted knowing he was on his way.
Either way they've been building up to this for a while, he was kept out of the loop on North Korea too.
Incoming Mike Pompeo has very questionable Russia ties (even worse than Tillerson) and is a religious nutter like Pence, not good.
Rex Tillerson's an idiot who was shit at his job so this is actually a commendable move from Trump - shame he won't follow it up by firing every other member of his administration and resigning.
In fairness his job was to gut the State Department and hinder any investigation / preventative measures against US election interference.
He's done a great job, he's just not as friendly with Russia as Trump thought and disagreed with him.
Also he called Trump a "fucking moron", that alone would be enough to trigger a tempter tantrum.
New CIA Director (Gina Haspel) sounds like a peach too -
Not enough twitter fights now this... From the Looks of Stormy Daniels' Twitter, Trump’s Lawyers Will Have a Tough Time Silencing Her
Monday: Trump’s longtime personal assistant, John McEntee ('body man', basically Charlie in The West Wing), was fired and escorted off WH grounds for unspecified security issue
Tuesday: Trump campaign announces McEntee has been hired as Senior Advisor for Campaign Operations
Anyone who can't get past the security checks for 'reasons' is shifted across to the campaign (paid for by the RNC) and kept on salary to keep them sweet (and quiet).
Nothing to see here.
and another one down....
Donald Trump fires State Department official who contradicted his account of firing Rex Tillerson
This also being one of the very few things to come out of the white house thst wasn't a lie.
It isn't torture if the CIA does it.
Just been reading this. The sacking was clearly the right thing to do, but putting him directly into the Trump team ... Is Trump a moron?
Silly question, really
It gets worse. Not just just a bent twat, he's a kiddie kiddling bent twat. Yep, the perfect 'man' for Trump.
Trump aide fired, under investigation by Secret Service
That's a bit of a leap - being investigated by the Secret Service doesn't mean you're suspected of every crime the Secret Service covers, though it would be hilarious if he turned out to be a counterfeiter who was plotting to assassinate Trump.
My sort of diplomat
“please get your shit together or we will all die”.
Not that big a one when agents have said he's suspected of child porn.
Where has anybody said that McEntee's being investigated for child porn?
She's right when she says the trump campaign was looking backwards and scapegoating minorities. The 'I won the prosperous pars of the country' part displays the attitude that was a large factor in her loss to the clown.
Sounds like we can rule out a Clinton 2020 run, unless Chelsea's got big plans.
Chelsea is pretty impressive. I'd vote for her. But at least for now, her last name dooms any political future.
The only Clinton you'd catch me voting for is George.
What have you got against Sanders and Warren?
Wow, I thought it was just another person having a pop at Trump, which is why I passed over this link before. But it turned out to be even more stupid and pointless than that.
The amount of pointless shite on this thread now is unbelievable. Needs challenging but it's like talking to a brick wall. A particularly stupid brick wall.
The beginning of the end?\
Pennsylvania special election: Democrats declare victory in setback for Trump
Even if the dems haven't won, their massive increase in votes must be shitting up the republicans.
Seems Trump asked to be spanked. Don't know if he got it them but it looks like he's in for a serious slapping in the mid terms.
Donald Trump: Stormy Daniels’ friend corroborates affair story
Not overly bothered about trumps sex peccadillos tbh, as mawkish and headline grabbing as it may be, its not like he is unusual in this.Ousting a president for sex issues is not gonna happen
