for the presidency. He's going to have to think of other people and not for political reasons to win elections but to thank them.

because he doesn't know how to do anything else. He's a hopeless narcissist who can't imagine a world that doesn't have him as the center of it. He won't thank other people because to him they don't deserve thanking; anything others do that benefits him was done only because he deserved it. And this personality defect will be his undoing - preferably sooner than later.

...since he's not pivoting or learning or even making the tiniest gesture towards actual presidentin, the pressure (see: TODAY!!) will flip him out completely, to the point where "loyalty" loses all
meaning for his desperately glommed-up self, and out the door they go -

Not sure who would be more vulnerable but Bannon would definitely fight the dirtiest to keep his spot. He has too much money riding on being next to Trump.

Trump's Scottish Ancestry
THE FAMILY HISTORY OF MARY ANNE MACLEOD, THE MOTHER OF DONALD J. TRUMP
http://www.trumpgolfscotland.com/Default.aspx?p=dynamicmodule&pageid=100092&ssid=100105&vnf=1
by Tony Reid


Genealogy

Mary Anne was born on 10th May 1912 at 3 Tong, Stornoway to Malcolm MacLeod and his wife Mary Smith. The family lived at Tong, a small fishing/crofting township lying 3-4 miles from Stornoway, the only town on the Isle of Lewis. The parents married in 1891 within the Free Church of Scotland, Tong. Malcolm was a local fisherman/crofter, the son of Alexander MacLeod and Annie MacLeod. At the time of the 1901 Census, Malcolm and Mary already had six children.

Alexander, also a crofter/fisherman, would have been born in about 1832. He married Ann MacLeod, also a Tong resident, in 1853 and died in Tong in 1900. According to his son Malcolm, who was the informant of his father’s death, Alexander was the son of William MacLeod, a crofter, and Catherine MacLeod. William died at nearby Vatisker in 1869 and, according to his son Alexander; he was the son of Kenneth MacLeod and [font color=red]Catherine McIver.

Bannon will likely have a sell by date coming up soon. Flynn is still a mystery to me.

I've been reading about three power groups in the Trump WH - Kellyanne's, Jared's and Bannon's. I see Bannon as the first casuality. Trump used praising Kellyanne in public at the same event he praised Kushner (actually was talking about Ivanka but praised her for "marrying well&quot and made a point of shaming they "boys" who didn't have the stones to go on the teevee to defend him like Conway does.

myself that this maniac has the nuke codes. Read something the other day about how thinking you may be in a nuke holocaust is making people think - my life could end any moment - what did I always want to do? I need to be more loving and care about who and what's important in life. Thanks DJT

The fact that no one -not Kushner, Bannon or Priebus -had the smarts or standing to say sending @PressSec out was a bad idea is v. alarming

by calling Kellyanne up and praising her, while saying his boys were too chicken to get out there.

Very important point from NBC's Katy Tur... Dear Leader sent Sean Spicer out there to humiliate himself denying reality.

I get disagreeing with politics or policies or interpretation of such -- but WH is disagreeing with facts right now.

We need to keep it up.

If his poll numbers continue to drop, and as more and more people finally realize they voted for their own destruction, the GOP will have to distance themselves.

If only to save their own re-election.

Could get even more entertaining.


Or not.

Lyin about the crowd size while accusing the press of lying.

I just saw the presser.. spicer is boring and his voice his grating.. worst Goebbels ever. I barely made it through 5 minutes.. it's like central casting for blotus presser guy.
