Perhaps the nightmare's nearly over. Trouble is, the Overton window's so far to the right that Pence would be seen as a relief.

Republicans are finally realising Trump is his own worst enemy – and theirs
Richard Wolffe

The president’s increasingly risible attempts to paint himself as a victim are alienating even his most loyal supporters

There could be something to the article above. It would appear that the Trump brand has become too toxic - even for the Trump organisation...


Trump name reportedly scrubbed from New York ice rinks

A report from the Washington Post says the company has not offered a reason for removing the president’s name

Overly smug delivery, maybe - but my morning ritual involves catching up with these guys...

He can't even just hold his hands up and admit he made a mistake. He just HAS to lie about everything rather than ever ever just saying "yeah, I messed up".




Which states are on the border with Mexico is literally a question on the civics test for citizenship. I should know I passed it.

Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Alaska.

Nah.... expect another five years of him next year.
Four years.

Presidents are elected for 4 years, House of Representatives members for 2 and Senators for 6. Another civics question.

Apparently a third of Senators stand for reelection every 2 years. That is not a civics question I was just interested in how the fuck the senate works.

Credit where it's due, a spot of good work sending El-Baghdadi to the other side, but noticeable for the press conference spending time praising Russia for their help, and having a pop at us for not doing more to help.

So, about that post Brexit trade deal....
