Trump's governmental hiring freeze means the military is having to cut back on-base child care.

Trump does not look healthy or happy now. Now that he no longer controls photographers, it has also become clear to me that the ugliness of his mind comes through in the ugliness of his face and his limited repertoire of facial expressions.

Limited repertoire of facial expressions? I'm quite disturbed by his limited repertoire of adjectives.

Trump is not an adult. His long-sought statement on anti-Semitism was what a young child might say.

IIRC, King George The Lesser Bush had certain limitations early on, and one adviser challenged him to read at least one book a week (successfully I recollect). Can anyone get Teh Donald to turn off his teeeveee and put a book into his hands, including his reading glasses. May work wonders, especially when he really were to read governmental reports during day. Maybe he will even read thru EOs before signing them off. :think:

Psssst! RTH, I think he has pretty severe cognitive decline, from what I'm not sure. I don't think he can read, or rather understand what he reads. Maybe Ivanka could read to him. ;)

Slightly off topic, but following the trend

I recommend the book
"Julian Comstock, a story of 22nd Century America" by Robert Charles Wilson.

I think it was further up this thread where we discussed the termination of State Department staff while Tillerson was away. And it turns out that it was his decision:
Tillerson presides over abrupt shakeup at State Department

By Elise Labott and Nicole Gaouette, CNN
Updated 1119 GMT (1919 HKT) February 20, 2017

The move sent shock waves through the agency and has left career officials on edge
Two dozen career foreign and civil service officers are scrambling for reassignments


Washington (CNN)Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has reassigned a majority of the staff meant to work most closely with the top US diplomat in what career officials at the State Department fear is the start of a major reorganization.

The news sent shock waves through the agency and has left career officials on edge, in part because of its abrupt nature -- taking place before their assignments end this summer and replacements have been found -- and in part because these officials help the secretary, a government novice, work with policy experts throughout the building.

While Tillerson was on his first overseas trip at the G20 in Bonn, Germany, his aides told the entire staff in the offices of the deputy secretary of state for management and resources and the State Department counselor that their current assignments were prematurely coming to an end, according to senior aides.

President Donald Trump’s former campaign staffers claim they cracked the code for tamping down his most inflammatory tweets, and they say the current West Wing staff would do well to take note.

The key to keeping Trump’s Twitter habit under control, according to six former campaign officials, is to ensure that his personal media consumption includes a steady stream of praise. And when no such praise was to be found, staff would turn to friendly outlets to drum some up — and make sure it made its way to Trump’s desk.

"If candidate Trump was upset about unfair coverage, it was productive to show him that he was getting fair coverage from outlets that were persuadable," said former communications director Sam Nunberg. "The same media that our base digests and prefers is going to be the base for his support. I would assume the president would like see positive and preferential treatment from those outlets and that would help the operation overall."

So the key to keeping the Donald off of twitter is to have Brietbart run a daily article entitled President Trump is loved by all except for losers?

Reality was just as good. From the 7th day of the Scopes trial, Clarence Darrow questioning William Jennings Bryan-
Q--When was that Flood?
A--I would not attempt to fix the date. The date is fixed, as suggested this morning.
Q--About 4004 B.C.?
A--That has been the estimate of a man that is accepted today. I would not say it is accurate.
Q--That estimate is printed in the Bible?
A--Everybody knows, at least, I think most of the people know, that was the estimate given.
Q--But what do you think that the Bible, itself says? Don't you know how it was arrived at?
A--I never made a calculation.
Q--A calculation from what?
A--I could not say.
Q--From the generations of man?
A--I would not want to say that.
Q--What do you think?
A--I do not think about things I don't think about.
Q--Do you think about things you do think about
?
A--Well, sometimes.

Honestly, I had no idea the play tracked the trial transcript that well. And the lines I gave are based on memory from about 1965, so I might have them wrong anyway.

Yes, Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee copied quite a bit of the play's trial scenes almost word for word from the actual trial transcripts.
