1. Melanie meeting up with Michelle should be fun, in light of Michelle's book

15. They really hate each other.

I didn't read Michelle's book. But, I saw her interviewed and politely not answer questions about Melania with a certain expression on her face that was not pretty. She did say she couldn't forget the threat they were under because of birtherism.

21. Exactly, but remember how they were all buddy buddy at Barbara Bush's funeral ? I will be interested

to see how the book changes the body language at Poppy Bush's funeral.

2. Someone on his staff can actually write something that makes sense.

Wonder where they have been hiding the last 2 years.

4. I'm sure that this was written by staff long ago

And has been in a file cabinet waiting to be used. There is probably a statement prepared for the others as well.

10. I'm sure you are correct. Like obits at newspapers.

 

They have them all written already for the famous people. They just have to take them out, make minor changes and publish.

Clearly, neither Donnie, nor Melanoma wrote that. Unless Michelle Obama left it around for Melanoma to plagiarize.

13. I agree

Newspapers have obituaries pre-written and pull them out when the person passes away. I wouldn't be surprised if this statement had been written during the Obama admin (or even earlier). I can't see anyone in the Trump admin smart enough to pre-write the announcement or to write that well.

It’s judgment, not “judgement.”

17. I think judgement is a British spelling, which is

further proof that Mr. and Mrs. Doofus didn't write it.

I can certainly envision Donald using the term "disarming" and that his and that plasticene doll's hearts "ache".

do they expect ANYONE to believe trump actually wrote that?

he can't string together any words beyond "tremendous", "disgrace" "fake news" and "witch hunt".

12. Not to mention that this statement came out within one hour of the announcement

of the death. It seems totally logical that Individual One and Mrs. Individual One got together in the middle of the night, from their separate quarters, in Argentina to dash this off.

And it wasn't written by Tiny, who probably never even saw it.

14. When Trump himself finally writes something about GHWB, he will have to include something about

himself.

The real question is how long will it take Trump to make it about himself. I bet before the day is over.

19. The moment I heard the first 9 words in the first sentence of...

...the second paragraph, it was obvious that Bonespurs had nothing to do with writing this statement. He probably can't even pronounce auhenticity.

HW went into the service BEFORE he went to Yale. He responded to the attack on Pearl Harbor and joined the Navy right after high school.

for Dan Scanvino to write his tweets..if you'll believe he writes his own tweets, you are part of the fairytale he's trying to create

by someone in the WH communications department, to be released when the time came. Tiny and Malaria probably never even saw it.

34. Yes, but come Monday the news cycle will circle back to tRump.


Or Mueller will drop another nugget that brings things about tRump front and center.

Bush’s death, and at 94 and his declining health, was not a huge surprise or shock, will only offer a few days reprieve for tRump. Once Poppy is buried and the ceremonies for that are in the history books, tRump better gird his loins because it will be game on....again.
