He's so very predictable at this point.

I'm sure that White House witnesses understand that telling their version of the truth and being upstanding people would result in their being escorted out.  Good for them for having the courage to speak up anyway.

And now, according to CNN, Trump has also fired Ambassador to EU, Gordon Sondland.

Another person who testified at the House impeachment hearing.

I am sure, at this very moment, Trump is assembling a list of folks who are as dumb as Donnie Jr., and true "Yes" people to fill roles of those he fires.

And the only people who care, as he engages in the further dismantling of our democracy, are those who outside the Cult.

I posted on Election 2020 thread, a story about Trump competitor, Joe Walsh, discovering in Iowa that the GOP is a cult.

From today's WaPo:

Meet The 71-Year-Old Staging A One-Man Protest In His Trump Loving Retirement Community

The man is confronted by Trumpster who accuses him of calling Trump a sexual predator with no proof.

The man responds by saying: Are you living in a cave?

Hilarious.

The woman threatens to send video of the encounter to Trump and Donnie Jr (like anybody cares).

This man is a hero.

And the story proves what Walsh found in Iowa, is true in FL.

You have to work pretty hard to be willfully ignorant in order to stay in the Cult.

From today's NY Times:

Many Republicans See Mitt Romney As A Traitor, Not In Utah

Trump has never been popular in the state, and won it with only 45% of the vote.

Something to do with Mormon values, which appear to be stronger than Evangelical values.

Of course, Trump's ridiculous Tweets about Romney and Utah voters, just isn't based in reality.

But then, with Trump, nothing is based on reality.

Another example of how out of touch with reality Trump is.

From today's WaPo:

Trump Promotes Larry David's MAGA Hat Spoof. Did He Get The Joke?

Spoiler alert: David uses the MAGA hat as a natural people repellent.

He uses the symbol of hate to get out of a lunch date, and to clear out a sushi bar, among other things.

Hilarious.

Trump somehow thinks it is a compliment.

There's a group around here that points out how willingly the religious right and evangelicals placed that mark of the beast on their foreheads.  It aggravates the wearers intensely.

We deserve a president who tells the truth to us.

Quote

Around a dozen American service members have been flown from Iraq to Germany to be treated for head injuries.

They were hurt when Iran attacked a base with missiles earlier this month. Today in a press conference in Davos, Switzerland, President Trump downplayed the severity of their injuries...

...   PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: "I heard that they had headaches and a couple of other things, but I would say - and I can report - it is not very serious."...

Ari Shapiro speaks with David Cifu of VCU about combat-related traumatic brain injuries.

SHAPIRO: Well, actually, research shows that these sorts of injuries can be very serious. We're joined now by Dr. David Cifu of Virginia Commonwealth University. He's the head of a nationwide research group looking at the effects of combat-related traumatic brain injuries.

SHAPIRO: What was your reaction to President Trump's comments this morning?

CIFU: Well, you know, rather than take the obvious, you know, route - which is, you know, how can he not know about this? - I think what it actually reflects is a very common thing in America and, probably, the world in that people don't understand concussions or mild brain injuries and don't understand both how they're diagnosed and how they're treated but also, you know, how severe they can be. It's often called, you know, an invisible injury, which is fairly absurd. So, you know, it was actually more in line with that's what most people would think.

SHAPIRO: Given what we know about the Iranian missile attack, do you have any sense of how serious these injuries might be?

CIFU: All concussions, all brain injuries are serious. So they're serious. Let's begin at that point. The good news is that 95- to 98% of people with concussions who are diagnosed early on, who are managed in a comprehensive way, which the military knows how to do, are going to do well, are going to have wonderful short- and long-term outcomes. If you don't diagnose it and treat it early on, you're more likely to have long-term sequelae or problems or symptoms. If you don't treat those symptoms and manage them - and they're often very, very manageable - then you're likely to not only not get well and get better and feel good, but you also have a higher risk of having long-term what's called neurodegeneration - dementia, Parkinson's - as well as higher risks of suicide and problems like opioid addiction and chronic pain. So there's - you know, there's a reason to make these diagnoses and treatments. And - you know, and I'm hoping that we can bring that to light....

I think that it's important to note that millions of Americans suffer from PTSD but are not medically diagnosed and receive no treatment because they are not in the military. Some of them were first traumatized as children and their needs have been neglected, ignored, and mislabeled for years. 

It's only going to get worse in Trump's plutocracy.

The Billion-Dollar Disinformation Campaign to Reelect the President

This is long but worth the read.  There's an audio version available that's good. If you haven't personally visited the Trump propaganda network of media choices this reporting will be eye opening for you.  

A modern day unregulated moral reprobate, such as Trump, with the power and might of a fully corrupted federal government, will be quite a problem for the planet to consider.  Don't underestimate the damage this evil crazy clown can create.

Not only do Americans deserve a president who is capable of telling the truth, but we also deserve a president who respects the men and women sent in harm's way.

This item only belongs on the Trump thread because we all know how much Donald John Trump loves all things Russian.

From today's NY Times (Kansas City, Missouri):

Playing On KC Radio: Russian Propaganda

The owner of the broadcasting outlet airing the propaganda is doing so because of: Free speech, and hey, he is getting paid.

Yep.

Chase that $$, no matter what!

Sell out your country, but it is so worth it because you are getting paid.

I am giddy at the thought.

Geez.
