It not his fault. He was dreaming of screwing his daughter and missed it - this is just not his fault! He couldn't help himself. Its just not fair to expect him to pay attention all the time! He is doing the best he can!

Just saying.............

Officials were aware in early 2019 of intelligence indicating Russia was offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans, a full year earlier than has been reported—John Bolton told colleagues he briefed Trump on the intel assessment

AND apparently Bolton says he advised Trump all about it. I suspect, when asked about that, he will say that they removed it from the book as it was a secret.

This cannot be a good thing for our Dear Leader?

A more likely issue would be if it is based on reporting that is single-INT, or from not highly-validated sources.

But we'll see (perhaps).

Bolton personally briefed Trump on Russian bounties one year earlier than previously known. There goes your theory CPWILL rolleyes

Trump can't be expected to remember things! Especially things he doesn't like. Those just get moved to the Fake News section of his brain.

Well, he has important things on his mind. On the fourth he is going to watch fireworks at mt Rushmore. Now we are being told that Trump wants his face on Mt Rushmore too! That's only because he feels he is at least as good as them there already?

I watched the get together to watch the fireworks last night. VERY few were wearing masks and the subject was, basically, how wonderful the Confederacy statues were a wonderful thing and represented how great our history (apparently of traitors and slavery) is. It was yet another Trump time of strangeness.

it dawned on me that we just might be living in an insane asylum. Think on it. We cannot leave and the entire rest of the world think we are insane.

Strange times?

It's been eight days since the New York Times, revealing that the Russian intelligence agency known as the GRU has been paying bonuses to Taliban fighters to kill Americans, and that this intelligence had been reported to Trump and had been known at least since March. The story was subsequently confirmed by the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and the AP.

Meanwhile, Rightwingers are spouting the WH line:

Quote:
nO vErIFiCatIOn!

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany assured us that “Neither the President nor the Vice President were briefed on the alleged Russian bounty intelligence.”

Thus began Trump's Sergeant Schultz defense: "I know nothing." crazy

America deserves better than the lying, no-nothing creep that Rightwingers put into the Oval Office.
