    does the Hair-Club grad in the White House actually believe the things he says, or is he aware that particular statements he makes are completely false, & that he's only saying these things for political ends?...
    Inquiring minds would love to know. :rolleyes: Personally, i'm not sure he can tell the difference between what he'd *like* to be true, & what is an actual fact.

    just as an aside, re his claim that Amazon is "costing the Post Office millions of dollars every year", the U-S Post Office is prohibited by law from charging postal rates that cause a LOSS of revenue.

    Currently, the greatest damage done to the USPO's earnings isn't Amazon's pkg-delivery fees, where they actually make money - it's the artificially-low postage on 3rd Class bulk-mail: catalogs, solicitations from charities, sales-pitches from credit cards, advertising for delivery pizza, & other unsolicited mail, which overburdens postal carriers, wastes trees, & clogs our mailboxes.
    The dam*ed stuff is sent by the tonne, & over 85% of the trees cut in Canada's forests become catalogs in the USA. :(
    Even more wasteful & sad, 90% of bulk-mail is never opened - it's simply discarded, usually in the trash. // The LEAST consumers could do is to cancel their unwanted catalogs, & RECYCLE all 3rd-class mail.

    Getting out in front of the barrage & telling the senders to STOP sending it, & moreover, NOT to share or sell Ur address, would also be logical & helpful. // But then - those are facts, & the Donald breaks out in a rash when he encounters facts. o_O

    Sarah Sanders, spokesnik for the White House, can't get it right either -

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders Says Citizenship Question Has Been on ...
    www.newsweek.com/sarah-huckabee-sanders-says-citizenship-question-has-been-cens...
    Mar 28, 2018 -
    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders inaccurately argued on Tuesday that a question added to the 2020 census asking people if they are U.S. citizens has been used for decades and was only removed under the Obama administration. "This is a question that's been included in every ..."


    she sez it's been on the census form "...since 1965" - whatta maroon. :rolleyes: The census is a decennial event, held each decade - there WAS NO "1965 census". // The census hasn't queried survey-answerers about their citizenship status since B4 the Civil Rights era, & the data is used to count EVERYbody, native-born, foreign-born, citizen or not.

    how did The Orange Man react, when told by the then-Director of the F.B.I., that Russia had definitely attacked the U-S by invading NDC 'Net files, rifling thru various political leaders' e-mail & online personal data, AND planting false info & online propaganda to specifically influence the election?...

    The most important news out of Jim Comey's explosive new book

    he focused on the Important Bit: "How can we spin this, & how does it affect Me?" ... Slimeball. :confused:
    He also claimed, in speeches & in his Twitter feed, that the FBI report specifically stated that the election outcome
    had NOT been affected - which was flatly false. The report said no such thing, as the FBI did not investigate the *results* of Russia's 'Net campaign - it only confirmed who did it, how, & when.

    Not one word
    of concern for the nation, the political figures whose privacy was breached, the possible theft of State secrets or unpublished policies or other sensitive data, the damage done to the democratic process, & most of all, to the public trust in voting - as a secure & accurate measure of the people's will.

    He's not only ignorant, incompetent, erratic, sexist, racist, homophobic, a serial sexual-offender, & crude - he's clearly disinterested in the welfare of the nation. // Everything is "me, me, me..." - we have a 3-YO throwing tantrums & demanding attention, seated in the Oval Office, who has access to the launch codes of nuclear weapons. :eek:
    These are dark & frightening times.

    Donald Trump just changed his story about James Comey's firing

    Key points:
    - he did NOT "fire Comey b/c of the way he handled the Russian investigation", in which BTW "there was no collusion".
    [that was May-2017... who remembers that far back, anyway? :p ]

    - now, in April-2018, he asserts Comey was fired b/c "he mishandled the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation". :rolleyes:


    I refuse to believe that Ms Clinton did anything whatever illegal in setting up her own servers - as she was advised to do so by a sitting Supreme Court justice, & if anyone knows the law, a judge numbered among the Supremes certainly ought to, plus the judge himself & many other political powers in D-C all have personal server arrays.

    "The Hillary e-mail investigation" stank to me of political mudslinging, as opposed to the factual events when Russia paid hackers to rifle thru personal & political e-mail accounts, & plant fake news items in order to affect a national election in the USA. // That multiple persons in Trumpster's cabinet & entourage had covert meetings with various Russian officials is now very-well documented. His son-in-law, campaign aides, his current lawyer, & others, all met different Russian oligarchs & powerbrokers, either here in the U-S, or in Russia, Paris, Brussels, & various European cities.

    U need a multipage program just to keep track of the major players, what with the revolving door of hiring & firing in this Administration!
