A Senior White House Official Defines the Trump Doctrine: 'We're America, Bitch'The Atlantic reporting. Not The Onion.
The administration officials, and friends of Trump, I've spoken with in recent days believe the opposite: that Trump is rebuilding American power after an eight-year period of willful dissipation. "People criticize [Trump] for being opposed to everything Obama did, but we're justified in canceling out his policies," one friend of Trump's told me. This friend described the Trump Doctrine in the simplest way possible. "There's the Obama Doctrine, and the 'Fuck Obama' Doctrine," he said. "We're the 'Fuck Obama' Doctrine."

seriously though we're fuckedhe also said he's going to start directly interfering in the DOJ and that he won't sign the """"moderate"""" "compromise" immigration bill that the House GOP is putting together (it's a shit bill that's only 50% ethnic cleansing instead of Trumpo's desired 100%).2020 is gonna be ridiculous. No chance he doesn't fully weaponize the federal government against whoever his opponents are.
If only Hitler had been accepted to art school. If only more models had paid attention to Trump at studio 54 in the 80's
In one such conversation, which took place in a public place and was overheard by two AP reporters, Oczkowski said he and Trump's 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, were "doing the president's work for 2020."
America's largest Protestant group moves to cut ties with the Republican Party and re-engage with mainstream culture.... Greear has promised to lead the denomination down a different path, which, he has said, must include efforts both to repent of a "failure to listen to and honor women and racial minorities" and "to include them in proportionate measures in top leadership roles." If the meeting in Dallas is any indication, his vision is resonating with a large number of the next wave of Baptist leaders.... Baptist life will only hasten the changes already underway, said Bill Leonard, Dunn professor of Baptist Studies and Church History at Wake Forest University and author of The Challenge of Being Baptist. "This predominately white denomination knows that it must reach out to Baptists of color, but if it takes Baptists of color's concerns seriously, it is going to have to change in other ways, including politically," he said.... Vice President Mike Pence addressed the convention this year, which may seem like the same old song to outsiders. But there was widespread resistance to Pence's participation. A motion to disinvite the vice president was proposed and debated, but was ultimately voted down. During his address, which hit some notes more typical of a campaign speech, a few Southern Baptists left the room out of protest. Others criticized the move to reporters or spoke out on Twitter. The newly elected Greear tweeted that the invitation "sent a terribly mixed signal" and reminded his fellow Baptists that "commissioned missionaries, not political platforms, are what we do."Though most Southern Baptists remain politically conservative, it seems that some are now less willing to have their denomination serve as a handmaiden to the GOP, especially in the current political moment. They appear to recognize that tethering themselves to Donald Trump--a thrice-married man who has bragged about committing adultery, lies with impunity, allegedly paid hush money to a porn star with whom he had an affair, and says he has never asked God for forgiveness--places the moral credibility of the Southern Baptist Convention at risk.
