"John B." <johnb505@gmail.com>: May 11 01:29PM -0700

President Trump recently sat for a long interview with The Economist magazine in which he discussed his economic agenda. One exchange was particularly attention-grabbing for anyone who could remember high school history, or who paid vague attention to the debates over stimulus during the last recession.
 
Explaining why he seeks tax cuts even if they risk expanding the budget deficit, President Trump said that they might increase the deficit temporarily, but that "we have to prime the pump."
 
"Have you heard that expression before, for this type of event?" the president said.
 
Yes, the interviewer — who, again, is an editor of The Economist — confirmed.
 
"Have you heard that expression used before? Because I haven't heard it. I mean, I just … I came up with it a couple of days ago and thought it was good."

Somehow? You and I would be billionaires if we grew up in a
billionaire's home, having everything without any worries all the way
through college then "loaned" a million dollars, going into the same
business as his father,then cheating workers out of their earnings,
going through several bankrupts, and generally being an asshole. Even
he said last week ....I'm the president, do you believe it"?
 
He's really a lucky SOB.

Becoming POTUS and being good at it are two different things.

Caught a short headline on this - apparently, it was a noise complaint where she
tried to speak with the kids directly, rather than to call the police.
 
One particularly foolish kid apparently thought it would be a funny prank, not
realizing from the start it was an automatically an assault on a stranger.
The fall only made things worse.

'But the president's big dumb map, framed proof that he's most popular
where people are fewest and farthest between, still ought to be a bit
heartening to the rest of us. It shows us that Trump and his cronies
continue to be highly sensitive to any suggestion that Trump is not a
legitimate president, which gives his opponents all the more reason to
remind them.'

Looks impressive, but...
 
...adjust the size of each county to be proportional to its population:

As BusinessInsider (that well-known bastion of communism!) says:
 
'Counties themselves aren't uniformly blue or red. Looking at a color
gradient using varying shades of purple, we can see that most counties
had a tight split between Republican and Democratic voters, although a
few islands of deep red and blue still remain.'

These days, those words are most often associated with either "Trump",
or "White House".
 
:-)
 
'One of the reasons the White House gave for firing FBI Director James
Comey was that "most importantly, rank and file of the FBI had lost
confidence in their director." That's what White House spokeswoman Sarah
Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Wednesday.
 
But this statement faced a sharp rebuke from Acting FBI Director Andrew
McCabe, who said Thursday when he testified before Congress, "Director
Comey enjoyed broad support within the FBI and still does until this day."
 
McCabe said that while morale "has always been good … there were folks
within our agency who were frustrated with the outcome of the Hillary
Clinton case," and were vocal about that.
 
"We have a diversity of opinions about many things, but I can
confidently tell you that the majority — the vast majority of FBI
employees enjoyed a deep and positive connection to Director Comey,"
McCabe told the Senate Intelligence Committee.
 
Shortly after McCabe's hearing on Capitol Hill, Huckabee Sanders had to
explain how the White House had reached such a different conclusion
about how FBI employees viewed their boss.
Her evidence: her "own personal experience." She said she'd "heard from
countless members of the FBI that are grateful and thankful for the
president's decision."
 
Later she said she had "heard from a large number of individuals that
work at the FBI that said that they're very happy with the president's
decision."
 
At the same White House briefing, Huckabee Sanders said, "I don't even
know that many people in the FBI."'

Not only is Trump too stupid to concoct a consistent lie, he clearly
can't pick anyone else smart enough to do it for him.

Trump claimed the FBI was in "turmoil", and McCabe...
 
...says that's nonsense:
 
'"He's a showboat. He's a grandstander. The FBI has been in turmoil,"
Trump told NBC News in his first interview since firing Comey. "I was
going to fire Comey. My decision," Trump said. "I was going to fire
regardless of recommendation."
 
Trump told NBC News he never pressured Comey into dropping the FBI
probe, adding, "If Russia did anything, I want to know that. Trump said
there was no "collusion between me and my campaign and the Russians" but
added that "the Russians did not affect the vote."
 
McCabe's testimony contradicted Trump's appraisal of turmoil at the FBI
under Comey.
 
"I can tell you also that Director Comey enjoyed broad support within
the FBI and still does to this day," McCabe said.
 
"I can tell you that I hold Director Comey in the absolute highest
regard. I have the highest respect for his considerable abilities and
his integrity," McCabe added. "And it has been the greatest privilege
and honor of my professional life to work with him."'
 
Point of interest beyond the obvious lying that McCabe called out:
 
How can Trump claim he knows that the Russians didn't affect the vote,
if he's also saying that he wants to know what they did?
