Trump's advisers are encouraging him to only attack Pelosi, not Biden or other 2020 contenders

According to a report at the Washington Post, White House advisers to Donald Trump are encouraging him — sometimes to no avail — to make House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) the main subject of his ire and not former Vice President Joe Biden.

The reason? They fear Trump’s attacks on Biden enhances his run to be the Democratic nominee in the 2020 presidential election.

In a deep dive into how both Trump’s people and Pelosi’s advisers view the battle between the two figureheads of their parties is going — both claim they are coming out ahead — comes news that close advisers to the president prefer talking about Pelosi than Biden because they don’t want to give his fledgling campaign more oxygen.

Those same aides also want the president to hold his fire on other Democratic presidential contenders, with the Post reporting, “White House aides also said it was better for Trump to be fighting with Pelosi than former vice president Joe Biden or other 2020 candidates, as the president has done recently, elevating their status.”


CAPTION TIME. It's Don & Melanie at the welcome ceremony at the Imperial Palace.

Paul Lee Ticks offers up what is perhaps the most obvious, but apt, joke about Trump's "presidency."

Ironically, Hope Hicks was Trump's assistant - but it was hick hopes that got him elected in the first place.

Congratulations to the Great (and my friend) Roger Penske on winning his 18th (UNBELIEVABLE!) Indianapolis 500. I am in Japan, very early in the morning, but I got to watch Simon drive one of the greatest races in the history of the sport. I will see them both, & TEAM, at the WH!

Maggie Haberman is at the top of "trending" on Twitter, over that Hope Hicks NYT piece.

Eventually, she will learn what works and what doesn't...maybe.

Another fucking sick, lying, treasonous tweet from Trump on the golf course in Japan

Donald J. Trump

Great fun and meeting with Prime Minister @AbeShinzo. Numerous Japanese officials told me that the Democrats would rather see the United States fail than see me or the Republican Party succeed - Death Wish!

The Washington Post


He was America’s most notorious war criminal, but Nixon helped him anyway


Dan Rather: "This is despicable in too many ways to count."

Dan Rather

We have a president of the United States wink at a murderous dictator to mock a former vice president? As what? A campaign surrogate for 2020? This is despicable in too many ways to count.

U.S. "President" on foreign soil tweets an attack on Joe "Bidan"

President Donald Trump was blasted online after attacking former Vice President Joe Biden while overseas.

Trump, who could not even spell the VP’s five-letter last name correctly, leveled the attack prior to playing golf.

In the tweet, Trump also admitted he has more “confidence” in dictator Kim Jong-un than his own national security advisors.

North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Bidan a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2019

The internet was shocked, both by the content of the tweet and by Trump violating the unwritten rule that domestic politics stay at the nation’s shores when the president travels overseas.
