He must also respect the prophesy that anyone who works with Trump becomes corrupted and loses all dignity.

It was Jeb!'s campaign. But wouldn't it just increase its legitimacy if it was commissioned by the FBI rather a political campaign?

I wonder if Trump would pardon Sessions---not so long ago he reportedly hated him and wanted him to quit.

Don't jump to conclusions, ksen. He may have a black friend.

Maybe that's a good question to estimate the overlap between his followers and Breitbart readers.

I wonder what happened there.
I think the most obvious explanation is he has no idea what he's doing.

In support of this:

Looks like the older, classic racism is still going strong in Austria, even if the "alt-right" cloak has peaked in other EU countries. Winner ÖVP will form a government coalition with FPÖ, from which it is said to have copied its immigration policy.

What are the Blackwater/Academi people doing? Repair work? Security guards?

If you only get the $10 million for stuff that leads to his impeachment, it's not that great an offer.

Two White House officials told The Daily Beast that Trump winces at having to twice certify that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear agreement, believing it shows weakness that he had to reluctantly do something he clearly did not see as "tough" on Iran. Trump has consulted both Fox News' Sean Hannity and former UN Ambassador--and staunch neoconservative--John Bolton on the matter. And each has dinged him for certifying the deal while privately urging him not to do so, one official noted.

I used be paid from a company in St Petersburg to make pro-Kremlin comments, and derail anti-Kremlin discussions, in the NYT and WaPo comment sections. Now I and thousands of others have been replaced by twitter bots. The first politician to campaign on bringing back human trolls has my vote.

"I hate everyone in the White House!

I had to check the date on this article because I swear I've read iterations on this theme since at least February.
Yeah, I think you're right. Both lazy reporting and Trump being periodically/permanently off balance seem completely plausible, so I dunno.

Nice. It's only missing a golden parabola from Vader to Trump.

the real question is whether the release of the piss tape will change anything.
The best one can hope for is probably some hilarity when people like Mike Huckabee, Mike Pence, and Jerry Falwell are forced to defend the depicted activity.

Haha, this pretty much sums up the political spectrum on the right these days:

I was thinking in simpler terms: the US ability make this kind of deal depends on its credibility to honor the deal far beyond the next election. This is undermined by Trump signalling that the Iran deal is subject to his whims.

Truly moronic even he doesn't follow through.

President Trump plans to "decertify" the Iran nuclear deal next week and announce that it is not in the United States' national interest, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

Such an announcement would leave the next move up to Congress, which would have 60 days to use a fast-track process to reimpose sanctions and deliver a potentially fatal blow to the deal, which Tehran agreed to in 2015 with the U.S. and five other nations.

The Post's sources cautioned that plans are not fully set and could change.

Today's update at electoral-vote.com says that it's a hard issue to gain politically from because those who are against stricter gun regulation are much more passionate than those who are for it.

I wonder where this came from. Maybe one of those improvised common-sense answers.
