I can't shake the feeling that at least the details of this story are a fake ... to draw the media off the trail.

Re: John Robert Bolton, National (In)Security Advisor - Show Started 4/9/18 - Ended in Disgrace 9/10/19

Ordinarily Bolton being fired would be good news. However in today's bizarro world Trump will have no problem finding a worse choice. Bolton will not show the same loyalty that certain Marine generals have displayed. I am about to go off grid for 5 days. Monday morning should be interesting. I'm ho...

My early pick for replacement is (and I'm not kidding) Seb Gorka.

No one serious is going to want the job. Trump is all-in on the sycophants now. And there's no confirmation process, so why the hell not?
Mick Mulvaney. He's not very busy.

Re: Who's going to be the NEXT one under the bus?

Yes yes, you resigned.
Though your ex-boss says he asked for your resignation.
Which isn't really resigning, though I suppose there is a possibility that your ex-boss is lying out his ass. Again.

Re: TS/Hurricane Dorian -- Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Florida, Carolinas (Not Alabama, Donald.)

Saying that Alabama faced a likely impact is compatible with the official 5% forecast. Saying it faced 0% chance is not compatible. The Bahamas being hit by 185 mph wind was a 5% possibility at one point. The rule of thumb is better safe than sorry. I don’t want Biden excluding states or territorie...

Re: All the President's golf clubs

Prestwick was already pretty much shut down to commercial passenger service back when I was traveling to Ayrshire for work - in the late 1980s.

It would shock me to hear that Trump is trying to use his presidency to get Prestwick back in the game.
(Narrator: it would not shock him at all.)
