    Hilarious see ing the trumpet explaining about drones telling us no one was on the shot down one.
    A little depressing seeing how much funding he raised in 24 hours $24.8 Million Raised in 24 Hours: Trump Adds to His Financial Advantage
    Dumbing down the planet and denying climate change reminds of a classic led Zeppelin song "Dazed and Confused".

    Default A Trump Riddle for you ...

    Found this in my Inbox - and if it's on the internet it must be true ... and if it's not true, it could be true - I guess Donald over anybody else knows how to appreciate alternative facts, doesn't he?

    I wonder though whether he would be able to understand it. Can you?

    This explains what is going on at The White House.

    Donald Trump went to London and met with the Queen.

    "Your Queenship, " he asked her. "I am finding things way more difficult than I could have imagined.
    May I ask you - how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give me?"

    "Well," replied Her Majesty, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."

    Trump frowned. "But how do you know the people around you are really intelligent?" he asked.

    "Oh, that's easy" the Queen replied. "You just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle".


    She pushed a button on her intercom. "Please send Theresa May in here."

    The Prime Minister walked into the room. "You called for me, Your Majesty?"

    "Answer me this, if you would, Theresa. " the Queen said. "Your mother and father have a child.
    It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?"

    Without pausing for even a second, Theresa May answered, "That would be me."

    "Yes! Very good," said the Queen.


    Trump went back home, returned to the White House and the very next day called for Mike Pence
    to come and see him.

    Pence duly trotted in to the Oval Office. "Mike, answer this for me,' said the Don.
    "Your mother and your father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"

    "I'm not sure," said Pence. "Let me get back to you on that one.

    Pence went panicking off to his advisers and asked everyone, but none of them could give him an answer.

    The next night, as it happened, Pence ran in to Hillary Clinton in a restaurant. By now, desperate for
    an answer to give to his tyrannical boss, he approached her much to her surprise.

    "Hillary, I know we haven't always seen eye to eye but I would really appreciate it if you could answer
    this riddle for me

    "Sure, Mike "Hillary said. "I'm not one to hold a grudge. What is it?"

    "Thanks, said Pence," It's this. Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your
    sister. Who is it?"

    Hillary answered right back, "That's easy, it's me!"

    Pence smiled, "Thanks!"

    Pence then went back to speak with Trump. "Say, boss, I did some research and I have the answer
    to that riddle. It's Hillary Clinton."

    Trump got up, stomped over to Pence, and angrily yelled at him. "No, you idiot! It's Theresa May!"


    ... AND THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS PRECISELY WHAT'S GOING ON AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

    It's funny because the joke hints that Hillary Clinton is smarter than Trump, yet look who in the Whitehouse :-)

    ... just to make sure people don't forget that Trump is not a laughing matter. He must be the most corrupt president in US history.

    President Trump, his family and more than a few of his appointees are using his presidency to enrich themselves. They are spending taxpayer dollars for their own benefit. They are accepting sweetheart deals from foreigners. And they are harnessing the power of the federal government on behalf of their businesses.

    There’s a word for this: corruption.

    Given how widespread Trumpian corruption has become, we thought it was time to make a list. It’s meant to be a definitive list of self-dealing by the president, his family, his staff or his friends — since he began running for president. To qualify, an incident needs to seem highly credible, even if it remains unresolved, and needs to involve making money.
    Pretty revolting stuff. Here is the list - if anything is missing, please let the NYT know (and feel free to add in this thread as well) ...

    Yawn: Another opinion piece devoid of any facts or sources.

    Well, the campaign must have started - Donald kissing babies instead of killing them:

    Default US trade deficit the largest in 5 months ...

    This self appointed genius started a trade war to reduce the trade deficit - didn't he? And now it is getting worse:

    Never good to appoint kindergarten bullies to US presidents. While they might have all the character flaws their supporters so much admire, they just might be out of their depth to do the job;

    Read this earlier today. Best article I’ve read yet and perfectly sums up the whole sad fiasco. If Americans don’t find a way to jump start the wimps in Congress soon, things are going to escalate very quickly, quite possibly to the point where it will be close to impossible to reverse.

    Just the 1st 3 words of this article "He cages children..." told me he remainder of the article is politically biased rubbish full of emotive claptrap.

    I suffered through the rest of it to to confirm this.

    I note down the bottom The Guardian asking for donations. No wonder with this nonsense.

    I think you are poorly informed. Trumps government does cage children. Quite sickening report this morning in Radio New Zealand, but for Trump fans it is probably o.k. if children are incarcerated "standing room only" without access to washing facilities or a change of clothes. Hey, it is only Latino children without US passport - no problem if they suffer or die ...?

    Quite sickening stories and pictures - but this is probably the logical evolution of people spreading hate and advocating to only look after themselves. (US) America First - isn't it?

    Guardian providing good journalism and it is for free (no paywall) ... but they still need to pay their journalists. What is wrong with them asking for donations? Not everybody wants to get down to the level of Trump's lying press to be paid by the liar in chief.

    Chose a historically reputable news site and clicked on your Aljazerra link BP.

    Overcrowding of holding facilities of Mexicans no doubt exploiting or involving their kids in their illegal and unlawful activities.
    Just shows the extent of the problem and how badly it needs addressing.
    Described as 'horrifying' by you guessed it, Democratic legislators.

    Fenced off behind a holding area. Yes
    With parents/guardians.. appears so.

    Jailed. No
    Caged. No

    I wonder if these Mexicans are free to go any time they want.... back to where they came from.
    It appears so, or are these the ones caught drug-couriering and the like?

    You have severely lost it BP. Whatever you accuse the administration of right now, Obama was doing exactly the same. Not a peep from you then about the liar in chief that he was.

    The British ambassador must have lost it too then.
