    His mind continues to falter. Today he tweeted out praise for the PM of Italy, Conte, and said he hopes he continues to be PM. Conte resigned recently when the leader of the right wing anti immigrant movement in Italy, Salvino, yanked support for Conte's government. Conte has not left office yet and there is apparently a movement afoot to keep him in office and push Salvino out.

    So Trump is tweeting support for an independent over a right wing anti immigration wannabe despot, the exact opposite of what Trump normally does.

    Yet another lie. Trump touting that Melania has really gotten to know Kim Jong Un well and they have a good relationship and she knows his country has a great future. Grisham then confirmed that Melania has actually NEVER met Un, wasn't at any of the 3 meetings with him and Trump, has never spoken to him in person or on the phone, and at most would only know what Trump himself told her.

    Yet another example of him lying about something for absolutely no reason, no actual gain. Nobody was asking if Melania knew him, nobody was suggesting it would be better for the country if she did, not a single logical reason for him to tell that lie beyond he's a compulsive liar.

    The simplest case for immediately impeaching Trump.

    Oh yeah, a com man president could make billions on corrupt deals with foreign governments and the stock market. I firmly believe that Trump is tweeting to manipulate the stock market for personal gain.

    Back in the 80s my girlfriend’s dad sold his entire portfolio on the morning of Black Friday and bought it all back after it hit rock bottom.

    Trump is a lifelong con man. Many believe the only reason he ran for president was to make money.

    He learned a lot from his Puti-tang in Russia.

    Even Santorum went off on Trump for proposing the G7 be held at a Trump owned property. And security experts have already weighed in calling it a security logistical nightmare where Trump wants to hold it.

    I'm not sure even Trump expected to get away with it he just wanted free advertising.

    It's funny this is what sets Santorum off; not the racism, not the fascism, not the war on immigrants, not accepting Russian influence, not tariffs, not the exploding deficit, but this...

    Maybe it’s the last straw. I think a lot of pubs are just tired of making up excuses.

    I don't think so. I think they're all in. The party was swirling the bowl when Trump came around and took over the party which gave it new life (campaign donations). They can't go back to the old GOP we knew. Hell, they really only had the morality and conservative economic principals going for them. The deficit with GWB blew that half out of the water and Trump has grabbed the morality half by the kitty.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/08/27/xinhua-china-insists-it-is-unaware-of-calls-to-trump.html

    Day later and China is still insisting Trump is lying about the phone call and Trump continues to double and triple down on it insisting it happened.

    What's amazing to me is I don't even hesitate for a second to assume China is telling the truth and Trump is lying. In an identical situation I'd probably assume just about every POTUS in my lifetime was telling the truth and Communist China was lying, but with Trump, I am relatively confident he's the one lying.

    Trump is trying to lift logging restrictions in the Tongass National Forest, which is the world’s largest intact temperate rainforest.

    Makes perfect sense with the amazon on fire, right? Who needs oxygen?

    Old white pubs know they’ll be dead before any of that matters.
