Suppose you had to give Donald Trump a job. What job would you give him?

Knowing what you now know about Donald Trump, and supposing he wasn't famous and he wasn't president, and you were responsible for giving him his ideal job, what job would you give him and why?

Why the retainer argument makes no sense at all

This is what Trump claimed this morning:

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/991992302267785216


This is what Giuliani said to Hannity:

"When I heard of Cohen's retainer for $130,000, he was doing no work for the president. I said, 'Well, that's how he's repaying it, with a little profit and a little margin for paying taxes for Michael.'"




Cohen has claimed he had to raise the $130.000 through a home equity loan to pay off Stormy Daniels, and Trump didn't know about this. If he was on a retainer of $130,000 per month, or over $1.6 million per year, it would be hard to see why he'd need a home equity loan to raise the money. So, it would be fair to assume that his retainer of $130,000 wasn't per year, but per month, so about $11,000 per month.

Suppose Cohen was on a retainer of $11,000 per month. That would be a regular monthly payment for the services he provided. We are supposed to believe that Cohen received payment of the $130,000 by way of his retainer. So, in this example, Cohen used his retainer of $11,000 per month to pay back his home equity loan. That would take a year. And if Cohen used his retainer to pay back his loan, that would mean he wasn't receiving any payment for his services for a whole year, and he never even mentioned this to Donald Trump.

In addition, Giuliani says Cohen got a little extra profit to cover taxes. Again, this makes no sense, as Cohen was already out of pocket by a whole year's work.



Breaking News - Giuliani fired

off a series of statements that have exposed Trump to legal jeopardy. Sorry, could not resist, but surely, the only way out of this for Trump is to fire Giuliani.

How much will Trump's tax and spend policies cost? 2.4 TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICITS a year.

Our projections show that under current law, trillion-dollar deficits will return permanently by next year and debt will exceed the size of the economy within a decade. Under potentially more realistic policy assumptions, the country will be facing a $2.4 trillion deficit and debt of 113 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 2028. These projections show a fiscal situation that is clearly unsustainable.

NRA Braces for Investigation by Collecting Years of Russian-Linked Documents

Source: CNN

The National Rifle Association is setting aside years of documents related to its interactions with a Kremlin-linked banker, as the gun-rights group appears to be bracing for a possible investigation, according to sources familiar with the situation.

The NRA has faced fresh scrutiny from congressional investigators about its finances and ties to Alexander Torshin, one of the 17 prominent Russian government officials the US Treasury Department recently slapped with sanctions. The gun-rights group has said it is reexamining its relationship with Torshin, who is a lifetime NRA member, in the wake of the sanctions.

My impression of James Comey after seeing CNN Town Hall

His cadence, his body language, the quality of his answers - they all tell me he is either a gifted actor or highly:

Intelligent

Humble

Honest

Deeply thoughtful

Empathetic

No sign of being an asshole.

For these reasons, I have a lot of respect for him.

Do I believe him? Absolutely. I think he is a noble man.

Waffle House murderer - what would you like to happen to him?

I would be interested to see your views.

Assuming he is found guilty and it is shown he has had long-term dangerous mental health issues, what would you like to happen to him?

1/ Prison for life because he deserves punishment and the people need to be protected.

2/ Death sentence because he deserves to die for killing others.

3/ Mental institution because that's where he should have been anyway and the system failed.

4/ An alternative to the options above.

While Trump threatens Mexico with wall/immigrant blockade/trade war, Mexico & EU reach historic deal


Mexico and the European Union have reached a trade deal that virtually eliminates tariffs.

Officials appeared to take a jab at US President Donald Trump's policies in statements praising the Mexico-EU deal as a defense of "open" and "rules-based" trade.

"Mexico and the EU worked together and reached a mutually beneficial outcome," said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. "We did it as partners who are willing to discuss, to defend their interests while at the same time being willing to compromise to meet each other's expectations."

The deal marks a move by Mexico to pivot away from its reliance on trade with the United States.

At some point soon Trump will be asked about Stormy Daniels under oath

Did you have sex with that women?

Did you know about the payment made by Michael Cohen?

No way, will Trump not commit perjury. He can't open his mouth without lying or digging a hole.
