I think that Trump's base actually likes a malignant tumor for president.

His base is getting down to those trolls who just want to see Liberals pissed off. They don't consider themselves as elite or highly educated and it's their "turn" to win. The reason he won those Midwestern states (and thus the Electoral College) is because those states contain a lot of long-term unemployed or under-employed who have stayed there instead of going where the new jobs are and resisted retraining.

They see themselves as anti-elite and proud of it. The real problem for them is that Trump can do nothing to make their lives better. The economic forces that made them that way are far far bigger than Trump. It's like King Canute beating the incoming tide. They will continue to spiral down economically until they move and get retraining (as Hillary suggested). Of course, Trump is not doing anything to help them but he's claiming he is. see "New Coal Jobs"

Boy are Trump sycophants seething and shaking their tiny fists in a fury over at Breitbart about Trump cutting a deal with Schumer and Pelosi regarding the debt ceiling and DACA.

In the words of Don Jr: I love it.

See, I told you guys that there several things that just need to get done and it doesn't matter if you are Democratic, Republican, Socialist, or Freedom Caucus. You just have to skip your posturing, get them done, and then you can go back to partisan bickering.

Some times you just have to water and mow the field before the teams can play the game.

You all know how the evengelicals are always saying things like, "Gawd sent AIDS to punish homosexuals," and "Gawd sent Katrina to New Orleans because of its orgies" and "Gawd gave us Sandy Hook because of abortion"?

Wonder if they are going to say that Gawd sent Irma to punish the Donald. (I'd use his title, but you know how he hates political correctness. That's why he calls Senator Schumer and Minority Leader Pelosi Chuck and Nancy. I bow to his preference.)


According to this article

"After destroying "Le Chateau des Palmiers," Trump's 11-bedroom mansion located on the Caribbean island of St. Martin (as well as Richard Branson's home on his private island), the storm has South Florida in its crosshairs. And the president's seaside resort, Mar-a-Lago, has been ordered to evacuate as Irma approaches."

"Mar-a-Lago isn't Trump's only South Florida holding, though. Sixty miles south of the resort, on Sunny Isles Beach, Trump owns three 45-story luxury condo towers, collectively known as Trump Towers, Sunny Isles. Floor plans for apartments in the buildings range from 1,435 square feet to 2,558 square feet, with prices on units currently for sale reaching as high as $3 million."


Wow. Maybe we can pray away the popinjay.

I'm afraid it's going to hit Key West, (the only part of Floriduh I like) and mostly miss the east coast. Oh well, the parrot-heads don't need much to be happy when they come back. Easy come, easy go. Let's light up and put on some Buffet.

We can worry about a new house tomorrow.

Very good article in Slate about the confirmation of items in the Steele dossier. You know, the one Bob Woodward called "garbage". Seems many of Steele's items have proved to be true, long after he reported them or even known about them from other sources.
The Steele Report, Revisited

Quote:
The quid pro quo as alleged in the dossier was for the Trump team to “sideline” the Ukrainian issue in the campaign. We learned subsequently that the Trump platform committee changed only a single plank in the 60-page Republican platform prior to the Republican convention. Of the hundreds of Republican positions and proposals, they altered only the single sentence that called for maintaining or increasing sanctions against Russia, increasing aid for Ukraine and “providing lethal defensive weapons” to the Ukrainian military. The Trump team reportedly changed the wording to the more benign, “appropriate assistance.”


Quote:
Consider, in addition, the Orbis report saying that Russia was utilizing hackers to influence voters and referring to payments to “hackers who had worked in Europe under Kremlin direction against the Clinton campaign.” A January Stanford study found that “fabricated stories favoring Donald Trump were shared a total of 30 million times, nearly quadruple the number of pro–Hillary Clinton shares leading up to the election.” Also, in November, researchers at Oxford University published a report based on analysis of 19.4 million Twitter posts from early November prior to the election. The report found that an “automated army of pro-Trump chatbots overwhelmed Clinton bots five to one in the days leading up to the presidential election.” In March 2017, former FBI agent Clint Watts told Congress about websites involved in the Russian disinformation campaign “some of which mysteriously operate from Eastern Europe and are curiously led by pro-Russian editors of unknown financing.”
