Cohen is disappointed that Trump (a) puts children in cages, and (b) doesn't pay his (Cohen's) growing legal bills. And he apparently also had a RNC position to resign from.

Grab it by the flag pole, when you're famous they let you do it.
It's not the first time Comey gazes at the horizon in Iowa. Maybe just book (or personal brand) promotion?
Looks like Bannon is planning to scam his remaining supporters.
Quote from: NYT
In a small gathering of academics at Harvard University this spring, he even floated the possibility of creating a new virtual currency, the "deplorables coin." The name is a nod to Hillary Clinton's description of Mr. Trump's supporters as "a basket of deplorables."

The work that Mr. Bannon is doing in the virtual currency realm is still in its early stages. But he has expressed an interest in helping entrepreneurs and even countries looking to create their own cryptocurrencies -- generally outside the United States.
It's captivating watching this and trying to figure out if the justice system moves faster than Trump is corrupting it.
I thought the alt-right was already against #MeToo. But the more division among them the better.
Kim is everything Trump wants to be...

ETA: nvm

Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by two members of the Norwegian Progress Party (basically equal proportions of right-wing economic populism, clownery, and anti-immigration in the present party platform).
What Kim Jong-un heard in Korean from the translator might have been coherent.

According to multiple reports, Trump brought up the idea of totally free trade during a meeting with the other G7 leaders which include the heads of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK, and representative for the EU.

"Ultimately that's what you want, you want tariff free, no barriers, and you want no subsides because you have some countries subsidizing industries and that's not fair," Trump said. "So you go tariff free, you go barrier free, you go subsidy free, that's the way you learned at the Wharton School of Finance."

According to reports, the other leaders were taken aback by the suggestions and not sure how serious Trump was about it. The president alluded to the surprise during the press conference.

"People were ... I guess they gotta go back to drawing board and check it out," Trump said.
lol, the guy who doesn't mind extravagant and unnecessary expenses wants a used hotel mattress.
She's still alive. If he'd killed her, it would've be broadcasted live. Imagine the ratings!

Trump floats commutation for Blagojevich, pardon for Martha Stewart

Why Blagojevich?  :dunno: 
Maybe Trump doesn't realize he was a Democrat?

As for Stewart:
Discussing other potential acts of clemency, Trump told reporters, "I think to a certain extent Martha Stewart was harshly and unfairly treated. And she used to be my biggest fan in the world ... before I became a politician."

Guess who prosecuted her.

Wow, this seems pathological even among extreme narcissists, but what do I know.
Couldn't you put the shreds into a bucket of water (or something stronger if you have time to buy it) instead of a dry paper bin to make reconstruction much harder?
Well, going with that, at least 800 people died as a result of the hurricane.
