I read this yesterday and got a hearty laugh from it. Even if you don't like Conway (I don't), you can't blame her for what's wrong with Trump.


This just in:

Trump and Roger Ailes No Longer Speak

Quote:
“Ailes’s camp said Ailes learned that Trump couldn’t focus—surprise, surprise—and that advising him was a waste of time. These debate prep sessions weren’t going anywhere.”


I guess the dream of starting Trump TV with Ailes at the helm may be somewhat derailed before it even starts?

(From Facebook)
Ken Eisner: "You know, it must have been horrible for Ailes to see himself reflected back as pure, monstrous id without a shred of his strategic intelligence."

not sure why anyone would be surprised by Ailes, Bannon, Stone, Klayman, Bossie, etc .... these guys are about as sleazy as they get ... they are advisors to a presidential candidate .... do the math

I subscribe to a "word of the day" thing where I get an email with a word definition and etymology. This was today's:

Quote:
trumpery

PRONUNCIATION:
(TRUHM-puh-ree)

MEANING:
noun:
1. Something showy but worthless.
2. Nonsense or rubbish.
3. Deceit; fraud; trickery.

ETYMOLOGY:
From French tromper (to deceive). Earliest documented use: 1481.
Talk about a candidate for the "Proper Name Club"!

Perhaps it is because their definitions are so rig-orous?

I'm surprised this hasn't been exploited in the past. It is SOOOOOO fitting.

I suspect that Trump is suffering from senile dementia --- on top of his sociopathy and infantile narcissism.

You think it is congenital? Nature or nurture?

In my mind, I am constantly comparing Trump with Henry VIII and Louis XIV, and countless other privileged rich kids who were never denied anything and had every wish catered for, and who were made to feel that they were God's Anointed on Earth.

I suspect that Trump is pretty typical of the handful of oligarchs who run the world. I think he permits us an inside look at the nature of our Class Enemies -- an insight which the better trained Class Enemies really don't want us to see. No wonder Trump's fellow oligarchs are upset with him!
