Re: The Trump Administration


Trump Lashes Out at His Cabinet With Calls to Indict Political Rivals.

quote:

WASHINGTON — President Trump berated his own cabinet officers on Thursday for not prosecuting or implicating his political enemies, lashing out even as he announced that he hoped to return to the campaign trail on Saturday just nine days after he tested positive for the coronavirus.

In his first extended public comments since learning he had the virus last week, Mr. Trump went on the offensive not only against his challenger, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., but the Democratic running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, whom he called “a monster” and a “communist.” He balked at participating in his debate next Thursday with Mr. Biden if held remotely as the organizers decided to do out of health concerns.

But Mr. Trump secured a statement from the White House physician clearing him to return to public activities on Saturday and then promptly said he would try to hold a campaign rally in Florida that day, two days earlier than the doctor had originally said was needed to determine whether he was truly out of danger. The president again dismissed the virus, saying, “when you catch it, you get better,” ignoring the more than 212,000 people in the United States who did not get better and died from it.

In his statement on Thursday night, the physician, Dr. Sean P. Conley, reported that Mr. Trump “has responded extremely well to treatment” and that by Saturday, “I fully expect the president’s return to public engagement.” Dr. Conley, who has previously acknowledged providing the public with a rosy view of the president’s condition to satisfy his patient, contradicted his own timeline offered upon Mr. Trump’s release from the hospital, when he said doctors wanted to “get through to Monday.”

The president has not been seen in person since returning to the White House this Monday, but he sought to reassert himself on the public stage with a pair of telephone interviews with Fox News and Fox Business as well as a video and a series of Twitter messages. Even for him, they were scattershot performances, ones that advisers said reflected increasing frustration over his political fortunes only 26 days before an election with surveys that show him trailing Mr. Biden by double digits.

The president castigated his own team, declaring that Attorney General William P. Barr would go down in history “as a very sad, sad situation” if he did not indict Democrats like Mr. Biden and former President Barack Obama. He complained that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had not released Hillary Clinton’s emails, saying, “I’m not happy about him for that reason.” And he targeted Christopher A. Wray, the F.B.I. director. “He’s been disappointing,” Mr. Trump said.

Refer someone to The Times.
They’ll enjoy our special rate of $1 a week.
“Unless Bill Barr indicts these people for crimes, the greatest political crime in the history of our country, then we’re going to get little satisfaction unless I win and we’ll just have to go, because I won’t forget it,” Mr. Trump said, referring to the investigation into his 2016 campaign ties with Russia. “But these people should be indicted. This was the greatest political crime in the history of our country, and that includes Obama and it includes Biden.”

Mr. Trump has often argued that his political antagonists should be prosecuted, but in this case, he went further by indicating that he had directly pressured Mr. Barr to indict without waiting for more evidence. “He’s got all the information he needs,” the president said. “They want to get more, more, more, they keep getting more. I said, ‘You don’t need any more.’”

The president was all over the map in his two Fox phone calls, throwing out unsubstantiated or discredited accusations, explaining that he wanted to bring home troops from Afghanistan to be ready to fight China or Russia if necessary and calling Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan “the lockup queen” even as his own Justice Department was announcing the existence of an anti-government group’s plot to kidnap her.



It gets worse.

This may have been posted on another thread. If so, I apologize.

He threatens his own Cabinet Members. At least he claims to be buds with Vlad.

Re: The Trump Administration


(CNN) - Former White House chief of staff tells friends that Trump 'is the most flawed person' he's ever met

Former White House chief of staff, retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, has told friends that President Donald Trump "is the most flawed person" he's ever known.

"The depths of his dishonesty is just astounding to me. The dishonesty, the transactional nature of every relationship, though it's more pathetic than anything else. He is the most flawed person I have ever met in my life," the retired Marine general has told friends, CNN has learned.

The reporting comes from a new CNN special scheduled to air Sunday night, "The Insiders: A Warning from Former Trump Officials," in which former senior administration officials -- including former national security adviser John Bolton, former Health and Human Services scientist Rick Bright and former Department of Homeland Security general counsel John Mitnick -- explain why they think the President is unfit for office.

Kelly's sentiments about the President's transactional nature and dishonesty have been shared by other former members of the Trump administration who also appear in the special.

Re: The Trump Administration


(CNN) - GOP senator unloads on Trump in constituent call, saying 'he mocks evangelicals' and has 'flirted with White supremacists'

Republican Sen. Ben Sasse criticized President Donald Trump earlier this week during a phone call with constituents, saying a number of unflattering things about the President, including that he's "flirted with White supremacists" and "kisses dictators' butts," his office confirmed to CNN.

"The way he kisses dictators' butts. I mean, the way he ignores that the Uyghurs are in literal concentration camps in Xinjiang right now. He hasn't lifted a finger on behalf of the Hong Kongers," Sasse said in response to a constituent's question about his relationship with Trump and his past criticisms of the President.

"The United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership. The way he treats women and spends like a drunken sailor. The ways I criticized President (Barack) Obama for that kind of spending I've criticized President Trump for as well. He mocks evangelicals behind closed doors. His family has treated the presidency like a business opportunity. He's flirted with White supremacists," the Nebraska Republican said.

How'd you vote on upholding impeachment, Senator?

Oh. Yeah.

Re: The Trump Administration


Sasse deserves no credit for unloading now. The time for this scathing rebuke has long since passed. It would have required courage to lay out these criticisms earlier, much earlier when they might have made a difference, even started a wave of similar observations and concerns. But he wouldn’t risk saying such things before his primary election. Sad, but it’s too late for him now to create distance between him and Trump.

As Robbie asked, how did he vote during the impeachment trial? That is his legacy not these recent words. There is nothing heroic about this eleventh hour critique. It’s too late, Senator. You will be remembered as complicit in your silence along with the rest of your Republican colleagues in the Senate.

I agree with you both, Robbie and Brick. When it really mattered -- and he could have actually STOPPED Trump from what he has done -- he folded like a cheap suit.

Re: The Trump Administration


Oh, my heavens. I hadn't seen before and after pictures of the Rose Garden, after Melania supposedly renovated it.

YIKES!!!!

Trump and Melania aren't only killing people; they're killing the flora, too. The boys are killing off the fauna.

Trump's Thanksgiving address 2020

Image

This picture of him at the tiny desk may be one of the iconic pictures of his administration. It started me thinking about what the other iconic pictures will be. How about Nancy Pelosi tearing up her copy of his State of the Union speech on national television as he rants on? Trump hugging and kissing the American flag. Trump throwing paper towels to people in Puerto Rico made homeless by the hurricane.

Re: The Trump Administration


(NBC News) - Trump's financial state could make him a unique threat to national security after he leaves office, ex-intel officials say

As part of a long-standing tradition, former presidents are sometimes consulted and granted access to classified briefings. Some ex-intelligence officials say Joe Biden would be wise not to let that tradition continue in the case of Donald Trump. With Trump's real estate empire under financial pressure and his history of carelessly revealing sensitive information, they worry he will see American secrets as a profit center.
