    THE DONALD OF THE UNITED STATES’s best tweets so far today:

    ……..
    I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!
    ……..
    Congratulations to Thomas Perez, who has just been named Chairman of the DNC. I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!
    ……..
    The race for DNC Chairman was, of course, totally “rigged.” Bernie’s guy, like Bernie himself, never had a chance. Clinton demanded Perez!
    ……..
    For first time the failing ‪@nytimes‬ will take an ad (a bad one) to help save its failing reputation. Try reporting accurately & fairly!
    ……..

    ……..
    Nice of El Trumpo to be pleased for Monsieur Perez. 😕 [Ed.]
    ……..
    More tweets may possibly be found here when he has spare time:

      • Even if one leaves aside how anti-democratic the refusal to confer legitimacy on Trump, is, what about how demeaning and disrespectful it is to the + 62 million people who voted for him. To assert, day in and day out, in a most hysterical manner that a collective, liberal belief that Trump is “not up to the job” ( on a mild day) trumps a sound and secure Electoral College win is very, very boring and unproductive.

        In this lemming-like hatred of Trump you’re normalising the despicable and quite horrendous actions of other politicians, present and past. FYI – you’re absolving the most unlikeable, self-seeking Hillary and the Clinton dynasty. Hillary, whose political choices have lead America to war and destabilised nations, resulting in millions of deaths. The manner in which lives have been destroyed is effectively normalised by those of you you harp on and on and on about how orange his tan is and how bouffant his hair is. What has he done. Did he vote “in” to Iraq? Was he pulling strings in Benghazi?

        The left’s and Washington luvvies arrogant, entitled denial of Trump legitimacy and their quite unhinged hatred is nothing short of mad.

          • The anti-Trumpers think they represent the best, the brightest, the most aware, the singular and that they stand apart like beacons of reason against “Deplorables”. They believe, without a doubt that their opinion has more weight than their neighbours, they are privileged and they are the elite.

            They think that transgender loo rights, the rights of foreigners who would claim asylum because they can buy an air ticket, or even easier break through a porous border are more important than taking a breath on immigration , endeavouring to revitalise industry and work towards a living wage and providing a future for existing population. They think that the unencumbered right of entry for 90 days of citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen is of vastly more importance than a perceived and identified risk of the Trump administration. They think that if they cast spells and bleat like sheeples they’ll change the collective minds of those who voted Trump.

            They won’t.

    Trumpy’s playbook is beginning to bear an uncanny resemblance to Putin’s:

    Dissent has now been effectively marginalized. Opposition candidates are frequently kept off the ballot on legal technicalities, and, when they do make it on, they are denied media coverage, let alone the “administrative resources” enjoyed by pro-Kremlin politicians. . . . The most important political space is not the grounds of the Kremlin. It is the space within the President’s skull.

      Except that any media or political opponents are not dead or jailed. Just about qualifies for a Godwin level of ludicrous exaggeration, JB.

          Of course you’re bound to say that… sucked in by a nonstop trumpy tennis ball machine of insane bleats, nonsensical tweets, bullshit, blatant hypocrisy and more than enough general horrendousness to make his loyalists happy fools.

            I really thought you might try to refute my statement since it was sufficiently broad to give you every opportunity. But no, you just submitted meekly and pleaded for diversion.

          • Joe, you might have earned some credibility if you had substituted Democrats for “Trumpy” in your ineffective slag!

    Contrary to liberal opinion, the Washington Post has Americans evenly split on Trumps travel ban.

    More interesting to me is what happens when the fence/wall is built. The contracts are about to be tendered. I’m betting it’ll be a great icon for liberal martyrdom.

      …. and cites his concerns about being able to adequately separate himself from his business interests.

      A stab in the back for trump who is still hopelessly conflicted with his own business interests…. and a poke in the eye for Spicer who has been saying for days that Bilden was 100% committed to the role.

      In the interests of transparency here’s a link to a partial list of the business concerns that may influence trump during his time in office:

        Having successful business people enter politics is always going to be a much bigger challenge than appointing career bludgers, JB.

        I think it has been shown it would be nigh on impossible for Trump to truly divest from his businesses due to the nature of what he owns. It’s not like he’s not making an effort though:

        President-elect Donald Trump is separating himself from his far-flung global business empire by transferring all assets into a trust and putting his two sons, Eric and Donald Jr., in charge, a Trump lawyer said on Wednesday.
        Along with plans to hire an ethics adviser, Trump is taking the steps to avoid inevitable questions about a potential conflict of interest between his businesses and the office of the presidency, although his lawyer insisted he was not required to take them.
        Republican Trump , who is to be sworn in on Jan. 20, has been under pressure to take these steps before he moves into the White House.
        Trump operates a variety of golf resorts and hotels around the world. The lawyer, who spoke to a small group of reporters on condition of anonymity, said all profits generated at Trump ‘s hotels by foreign governments will be donated to the U.S. Treasury.

        Ivanka Trump Will Resign From Trump Organization Roles
        As her husband will take a role in Donald Trump’s White House
        Trump is to resign from all positions he holds with Trump Organization entities, and his daughter, Ivanka, is to have no further involvement with management authority in the group.
        Ivanka Trump is the wife of Jared Kushner, who Trump has appointed to a senior advisory role in the White House.
        The Trump Organization will not enter any new deals while Trump is president, according to the lawyer.
        Since Trump sold all his stocks last year, the Trump trust is to hold only liquid assets such as cash and business operating assets, the lawyer said.
        Many ethics experts had urged Trump to completely divest or set up a blind trust for his assets. The lawyer said Trump opted against these steps because it was not a realistic possibility.
        Trump was aided in setting up the trust by lawyer Fred Fielding, a former White House counsel to Republican presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.
        Interviews are being conducted in the search for an ethics adviser for the trust, the lawyer said.
        “The written approval of the ethics adviser will be required for new deals, actions and transactions that could potentially raise ethics or conflict of interests concerns,” the lawyer said.
        Trump has terminated all pending business deals to clear the way for becoming president. His access to information about his businesses will be sharply limited, the lawyer said.
        The moratorium on new deals does not apply to contracts that are entered into by the Trump Organization and its affiliates in the ordinary course of business.Remaining debt will stay in place and will be dealt with during the ordinary course of business, the lawyer said.
