At this point, I wonder which staff members will be drained from the swamp. I'll bet Kelly bails quick.

I actually feel sorry for Sarah H. Sanders.


If he has a hissy fit, he'll fire them all. Then there will no grown-ups left.

You have no input as to why Dowd doesn't want Trump to testify ?

Haha...I imagine their is truths in this book...but like so many it has it's biased spins and are snippets of truth out of context of reality.

I laughed about the Trump comment about taking out Assad. My own husband who is amazingly quite democrat has been saying for years to just blow up the middle east. So, I can believe that Trump could have said such off the cuff too...but in reality, it is more a shock statement to force others to really think logical and proffer a better way to resolve an issue. Trump is a more centered democrat...always has been. His party just abandoned him and America as they went to far left.



Edit add: it is an awesome managerial leadership technique to promote innovation. If the group has become too relaxed in thinking it is not their problem and feeling not worried since the boss will be the one to take the heat if he decides wrongly...shocking them with an a horrible resolution that will actually effect them...usually will activate the group to actually do their jobs.

The stable genius, with carefully vetted and hand picked "best people"...

Perhaps we should be taking bets on who he won't fire !

Heads will roll, believe me....!!! Trump must be devastated to know that he didn't even have the loyalty and support of his closest advisers.


I doubt he's devastated. Now him not having loyalty and support from his closest advisors doesn't surprise me at all. Especially considering both the Republicans and Democrats hated Trump from the day he announced he was running for president. Then top that off with the FBI planting spies into his administration over the past 2-3 years. I'm sure his second term will go a lot smoother, but I don't wanna devastate anyone with that news. Or is that my opinion, I get confused these days.

Well, the main problem is perceived weakness and some more "serious" leader acting on it ...and nuclear fire.

Trump is just a politician without filters... or the experience and will to manipulate the more complex people effectively, more precisely... so the loud stupidity and chaos does leave an opening for a Geo-political chess player to exploit, which usually means war at some level.

We so (collectively) deserve the leaders we get... sigh.

You're absolutely right,
Trump is not in the slightest bit devastated
not one iota

He is brick-chittingly paranoid

Woodward depicts Trump’s anger and paranoia about the Russia inquiry as unrelenting, at times paralyzing the West Wing for entire days.

Learning of the appointment of Mueller in May 2017, Trump groused, “Everybody’s trying to get me”— part of a venting period that shellshocked aides compared to Richard Nixon’s final days as president.

Mueller already has the goods on Trump !


You misunderstood what he meant. It would be easy to trick an ineloquent Trump to stumble over himself and make a trivial misstatement into a charge of lying.

Seriously? Go back and watch Trump before he officially moved into politics. He loves the negative press. It is a fun challenge and a game to him. I am sure he is simply baiting and casting his lines out having a terrific day of fishing.

Yep, everyone is a certified psychologist when it comes to evaluating Trump. But my psychic abilities are telling me Woodward is the one paranoid. He knows his book will be a flop just like all the rest. I also predict his book will be in the clearance aisle's within a couple months of its release.

It's based on what Trump said
when Mueller was appointed


“Everybody’s trying to get me”


Very paranoid, all too very Nixonian

So the same old crap but a different day. I'm sure Amazon will make his book very noticeable on their site for the extracts. You know, the same companies that absolutely hate Trump.


You've been conditioned very well, or programmed by the President and his tactics.

Not supporting lies, deception and bullying is not "hatred", it's values.

The President is like a kid bully, who bullies everyone in his classroom -- everyone -- and then bullies the staff, and then bullies other schools he does not even go to and their staff and so on. And in the end he sits down and cries "everybody hates me," like a petulant child.

I would imagine some people who are bullied would develop hatred, but every action has a reaction. For the rest of the people that are observing all this from the sidelines, there is no hatred, or at least for me there isn't. He is not worthy of such a strong emotion that I should expend energy on hating him. It is also against my values.

However, like many others, I will not stand for bullying and say nothing about it. I will not listen to lies and just sit quietly while people suffer because of those lies.

So sit back and think rationally -- can you think of any company that is not a direct supporter of trump or as you say "hates" him, that has not already been directly attacked by the President, in an unprovoked attack.

You reap what you sow.

Yes it does.

But hey, could you link me at least one phrase on this book that could be confirmed... You know... With real sources?

Not just “a person familiar with the matter”?

This isn’t truth. It’s kinda fun and satisfying to watch the desperation from here, actually.

Exactly right, and the point of my post.

You reap what you sow... if all you sow is intolerance, divisiveness and hatred, is it rational thinking to expect something else in return?

Re-post to an earlier fan-boï



Trump: But are you naming names? Or do you just say sources?

BW: Yeah, well, it names real incidents, so . ..

Trump: No, but do you name sources? I mean, are you naming the people, or just say, people have said?

BW: I say, at 2:00 on this day, the following happened, and everyone who’s there, including yourself, is quoted. And I’m sorry I didn’t get to ask you about these . ..

Trump: I mean, you do know I’m doing a great job for the country. You do know that NATO now is going to pay billions and billions of dollars more, as an example, than anybody thought possible, that other presidents were unable to get more? And it was heading downward. You do know all of the things I’ve done and things that I’m doing? I’m in the process of making some of the greatest trade deals ever to be made. You do understand that stuff? I mean, I hope.


Transcript: Phone call between President Trump and journalist Bob Woodward

If Trump is ok with no names,
his fanboys should be too

Anyhow, as it is, we can all guess who spilled the beans

When you say fishing, you really mean golfing, right?


As of September 1, 2018 he has spent a 154 days golfing, or 25% of his Presidency. The taxpayer cost of his golfing has so far been $77,000,000.

The Golf News . Business Insider . Trump Golf Count

By comparison, Obama played 41 rounds per year of his Presidency. Trump is at close to a 100 per year. This puts him on pace to surpass Woodrow Wilson and Dwight Eisenhower, who lead the pack when it comes to presidents.
