He doesn't pay attention to the DB? He's tweeting again this morning. Should quiet down when they get him to the golf course.

There is a Revolution going on in California. Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy. Want Security & Safety NOW!
WTF. "Breeding Concept?"

When April Ryan asked Sanders WTF does this mean
But a reporter noted that the term “breeding” evokes animals procreating – a notion that Sanders appeared to reject.

“I'm not going to begin to think what you think,” she said, adding that while the word “breeding” can mean “a lot of things,” the president was talking about what she called a growing problem in California and other states with so-called sanctuary cities.

“I don't have anything else to add,” Sanders said.

Anchor babies by another name.

There are many articles noting "breeding" and "infested" are race-baiting dog whistles. Of course, neither the whistler nor whistlees care.

(Others more charitable think it was an autocorrection, and likely was meant to be "breeding contempt.")

More like the people of CA are not happy to have to fund a yuuuge National Guard presence in an area where the Border Patrol have things well under control and fenced in. And dotus implies that the National Guard were going to keep crime down/low. A great lie as always as they have no law enforcement duties and are stationed in the border area, not in the population centers where crime may be a problem, US citizens included.

Governor Brown agreed to send National Guard, but only if they weren't used for immigration enforcement, but rather to deal with guns, drugs, and human trafficking. And the Pentagon is funding the deployment, not the state.

As far as areas attempting to not be covered by the "sanctuary laws", so far, it's just been the county supervisors and some cities in Orange and San Diego counties, and a couple of cities in two other counties. They've voted to ignore the laws, but so far, only the city of Los Alamitos actually passed an ordinance:

But it doesn't. Try diagramming this sentence with "contempt."

They want out of this ridiculous yadda yadda yadda . . . contempt.

Huh?

Also, too, the phrase "breeding contempt" is not in Trump's 4th grade vocabulary.

But wait. If he had written it this way, as “crime-infested & -breeding concept...”, wouldn’t you think the Dotard meant “crime-breeding concept [sanctuary cities]”? It’s not any better than the other thing, but it makes more sense to me than that other thing everyone thinks he meant.

Sometimes my side makes me :cantlook: . A mindlessly baying pack is just annoying.

Think its time to introduce Dan Scavino - the White House's Social Media Director, an the guy that Collaborates or writes at least 50% of Trumps social media posts. For a lot of them he tidies up the spelling and grammar and suggests ways to phrase stuff. He also writes the "I am going to be here today" posts that Trump finds too boring to bother with, and probably some other posts. He has nothing to do with the early morning on the toilet shit that he posts, but he is right there for a lot of them.

And he is VERY publicity shy. Trump wants everyone to think all his twits are 100% his own, and Dan knows that the mortal sin is to steal some of THE STAR's limelight. Oh yeah and he has ties to Russia. SURPRISE!!

Who Is The Mystery Man Behind @realDonaldTrump? (Besides The President)

April 19, 20181:54 PM ET

Journalist Robert Draper says White House social media director Dan Scavino has a hand in crafting about half of the president's tweets.
Matt Rourke/AP

Just who controls the Twitter handle @realDonaldTrump? If you guessed the president, journalist Robert Draper says you might be only partially correct.

Draper's recent New York Times Magazine article profiles White House social media director Dan Scavino — a man Draper estimates helps craft about half of the president's tweets.

Scavino first met Trump on the golf course in 1990, when he worked as Trump's caddie. Three decades later, Draper says, a certain golf-course dynamic still exists between the president and the man who helps manage his Twitter feed.

"Dan Scavino doesn't have an ideology other than loving Donald Trump," Draper says. "He does ... whatever Trump wants him to do — and in that sense he was then and still is a kind of caddie."

Draper says that Scavino deliberately shies away from the limelight: "[The White House] would prefer that we see [@realDonaldTump] as the unvarnished Donald Trump." But, Draper adds, "Dan Scavino, a person most Americans have never heard of, is in a lot of ways a more acute window onto Trump than almost any other. ... No one understands Trump's base ... more than Dan Scavino."

Interview Highlights

On Scavino's aggressive defense of the president on Twitter

Scavino is yet another individual who was a perfectly normal soul, so it seemed, until he fell down the Trump rabbit hole. As this Westchester County suburbanite, one would never have expected a person like Dan Scavino to become a Donald Trump attack dog, but that is, in fact, what has taken place — both on Trump's Twitter account and on Dan Scavino's personal Twitter account. ... To the extent that Trump believes in (as he puts it) "counter-punching," Dan Scavino is very much a part of that counterpunching mechanism.

On which of Trump's tweets may have been crafted by Scavino

If you look at Trump's Twitter page, you'll see, for one thing, a few sort of anodyne things: "I'll be at such-and-such a place at 1 o'clock." Trump's not writing that; Dan Scavino is.

Then you'll see other things that will say, "I'm not the corrupt one; Hillary Clinton is corrupt." And it will list three or four reasons why Hillary Clinton is the corrupt one, not Trump. Well, that's Trump, but it's Trump in "collusion," as it were, with Scavino, who will supply the litany of examples.

There are also some tweets that Trump will dictate to Scavino and Scavino will then polish them up, make sure there are no grammatical errors or anything like that. Trump will look at them and then say, "OK, that looks good," or "No, no. I want you to put this back in." Then he'll say, "Go ahead and hit send," and Scavino will do so. ...

There certainly are tweets that Trump himself writes in the dark of night or first thing in the morning that Dan Scavino sees when the rest of the world sees. That's probably about half of the tweets overall. But of the 37,000 or so tweets that Trump has sent out, Dan Scavino is responsible for — at least as a "co-conspirator" to — about half of those.

That's one of the few things he has been consistent on. And I'd expect a picture or video clip some time in the past couple decades to have surfaced by now, or at least someone who smelled it.

You are probably correct Turtle. Mrs. RC reminded me that his brother Fred Jr. died from alcoholism too.
