Trump got on Twitter at around 7:00 am today. And has tweeted or re-tweeted 68 times in the last 6 hours (including 2 re-tweets of his own past tweets). That’s one tweet on average every 5 minutes and 17 seconds so far for those trying to do the math. 
 

And how have those of you who aren’t the President of the United States spent your day?

No integrity, no shame.

 

..............and today he says he would fund his campaign with his own money, 🤣🤣🤣, because the crap he spews is not bringing in the cash, hope is still has all the missing money from his inauguration , on the other hand I sure he could find some rick oligarch to by some of his properties at an over inflated price.

There is a Democratic super PAC using Trumps tweets against him. You pledge to donate so much to the super PAC per tweet that he sends.

Trump averages 30 tweets a day, according to Schultz, and the platform will cap donations at $45 a month, or 900 tweets per month. If they get 1 million people to donate an average of 2 cents per tweet, Trump will be contributing $18 million monthly to the organizations listed in the Justice Fund.

Quote

According to a book written by Michael Cohen, Trump's former personal lawyer, Trump said that Mandela, who guided South Africa in its politically fraught transition from a racist apartheid government to a democracy, was a terrible leader.

Cohen wrote that after Mandela's death in 2013, Trump said: "Mandela f---ed the whole country up. Now it's a shithole. F--k Mandela. He was no leader."

Mandela, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 along with apartheid leader Frederik Willem de Klerk, is widely revered by all racial groups in South Africa. Internationally, he generally has a glowing reputation as a skilled statesman who avoided a nationwide bloodbath as the country abandoned apartheid.

Not to say Cohen's a trustworthy figure by any means but this sort of **** seems pretty typical for Trump. This is what tends to happen when you stab others in the back repeatedly.

Ok, I'm reading the "Where'd the money go, Donny?" NYT story...

Quote

Mr. Trump, who once joked he could be the first candidate to make money running for president, has steered, along with the Republican Party, about $4 million into the Trump family businesses since 2019: hundreds of thousands of dollars to Mr. Trump’s club at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, lavish donor retreats at Trump hotels, office space in Trump Tower, and thousands of dollars at the steakhouse in Mr. Trump’s Washington, D.C., hotel.

huh! 4 million bucks, that's unseemly but not too bad I guess, I had thought that the number would be one or two orders of magnitude higher, maybe there's less to this than I thought?

reading onward..

Quote

Many of the specifics of Mr. Trump’s spending are opaque; since 2017, the campaign and the R.N.C. have routed $227 million through a single limited liability company linked to Trump campaign officials.

uh, yeah, okay.  There it is, right in plain sight there.

Unprecedented...

The US Justice Department, in an extraordinary move on Tuesday, asked to take over the defense of President Donald Trump in a defamation lawsuit filed against him by E. Jean Carroll, a woman who has accused Trump of sexual assault.

While the alleged sexual assault occurred long before Trump became President, the Justice Department argued that it must take over because Trump's comments spurring the defamation lawsuit came while he was in office. The move -- defending Trump at taxpayer expense -- comes amid ongoing criticism that the Justice Department has acted in the President's personal interests.

First preview of Woodward's forthcoming book:

Let’s see if Trump’s dummies can figure out this new revelation. 
No, you’re right, can’t see it.

But this is the kind of proverbial straw that should break the camel’s back. Unfortunately, this is Trump’s humps that cannot be broken...for all the wrong reasons.

How many horrific acts will it take for someone to take him down?

Nothing will take him down in the eyes of his supporters, not unless he himself abandons them. They will pass this off as sound Presidential wisdom not to incite panic and conveniently ignore him calling it a hoax the whole way through. His whole term has been revisionist history, denying what he has clearly already said, and re-framing his arguments to shift the story and ignore the inconsistency. The only time he didn’t try to deny what he said or shift the story to a different point was the whole Access Hollywood “grab ‘em by the kitty” comment, and he shrugged it off as locker room talk which his base bought hook line and sinker. 
 

I said earlier if he is clearly on the way out after the election he will kick up a fuss and let his supporters lead a civil war, but he will slip out the back door while everyone is distracted and go to another country where they don’t have extradition, knowing that he faces criminal prosecution in New York and possibly Federally as well. He has made his bed with Russia and Saudi Arabia so he has a couple of safe havens, and like Lionel Langley in the Simpsons monorail episode, he will disappear with the cash and not look back, like every con artist does. Only then will his rubes see that they were duped.  Otherwise they will accept every false persecution claim he throws up because he has convinced them that the media is corrupt - sadly his most lasting achievement as President.
 

And in 5-10 years we will get a book along the lines of Mulroney’s “On the Take” expose which lays bare the full extent of the corruption after the fact and nothing will be done about it other than a public flogging in the court of public opinion.

U.S. President Donald Trump acknowledged in February he knew how deadly and contagious the novel coronavirus was but played it down because he did not want to create a panic...

The recordings, obtained by CNN and based on a new book titled Rage by veteran journalist Bob Woodward, come weeks before the Nov. 3 presidential election and as Trump's efforts to battle COVID-19 have come under intense criticism as being too little too late.

According to the interviews, CNN and the Washington Post reported, Trump knew the virus was especially deadly in early February.

"It goes through the air," Trump said in a recording of a Feb. 7 interview with Woodward. "That's always tougher than the touch. You don't have to touch things. Right? But the air, you just breathe the air and that's how it's passed.

"And so that's a very tricky one. That's a very delicate one. It's also more deadly than even your strenuous flus."

Moments later, Trump used the term deadly again: "This is deadly stuff."

"I wanted to always play it down," Trump told Woodward on March 19, days after he declared a national emergency. "I still like playing it down, because I don't want to create a panic."

In that conversation, Trump also told Woodward that some "startling facts" had just come out about the virus's targets: "It's not just old, older. Young people, too, plenty of young people."

Can't wait to see how Trump and his MAGAt cultists react to this.

So the DOJ is going to be Trump's legal beagles for things that happened before he became President, like I'm sure the taxpayers are all okay with this, Trump and his family needs to launder more money and pay his legal bills by himself.

He's too poor to pay his bills. His lawyers are walking out on him.
