My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
I was a Sag-Aftra agent for many years. I have had the privilege of working with some of the best casting directors and none of them could have envisions a monthly crew like the people who surrounded Trump before and after the election.
I’ve said this on my blog before, I have seen this movie before. And the last time the Senate committee released documents about a president this damaging was during Watergate.
People are continuously asking me what I believe the endgame is going to be. I truly believe that people are going to go to jail and I don’t think that Mike Pence is going to become president. Mike Pence was in charge of the transition. He had to know what was going on. His weird Allegiance, almost cult-like, to Trump tells me that Trump knows a lot that he’s holding over Pence.
This is a white house that has no head. And I mean it has no brain. Not to have foreseen that the North Koreans were playing them is mind-boggling. Everything this white house has done before the election and since it’s been in power has been a shit show.
As the current occupant of the White House was in his motorcade going from Mara Largo to another one of his golf games, numbering over a hundred since his taking office, he saw a sign on the side of the road. The sign was in front of a gentlemen’s club and it said that there was a hurricane coming and was called Stormy.
In this Deluge of never-ending scandals even the most hardened pundit is finding it difficult to keep all of these in some sort of order. The Stormy Daniels story would have been Front Page News if this had been during the Clinton administration. A president’s lawyer paid a woman who allegedly was in a consensual relationship with the person running for the presidency. This money was paid in such a way that it triggered alarms in the banking system setup to track cartel money and money from terrorist organizations. And this is who is our president today.
Let’s forget about the politics. At the time of this relationship Donald Trump had had his first child with his current wife. The cold shoulder that his wife is now showing to the president is more than adequate to tell us how she feels about this whole sordid affair.
This is going to be much harder to sweep under the rug by an Administration that seems eager to sweep everything under the rug. Look at Gary Cohn’s departure from the White House today. It was never mentioned until it was made public by the fact that he wasn’t at the meeting in the White House he was supposed to attend.
This is a White House of intrigue and not one that is promoting the welfare of the American people. Everyone I speak to says the same thing to me I hope we can live through this and get out of this whole, I pray to the universe that we do.
Labor Day is the traditional start of the presidential campaign. And this Labor Day did not disappoint. Hillary Clinton the beautiful beautiful plane has her new campaign plan for the next two months. Donald Trump has agreed to the debates. I believe that this will be pivotal in the outcome of the election. Donald Trump was on a stage with 10 people when he was debating during the primaries. He could disappear for 15 minutes at a time while the others were bickering. One on one is going to be difficult for Donald Trump and his lack of focus and grasp of the issues. The debates going to be interesting but it’s important to realize that debates don’t usually have much outcome on the election results. The only way debates have an outcome is when one of the candidates screwed up royally or seems disingenuous.
Please, do not be fooled by this. He is a master of the media and knows that the more his face is on television the better it is for him. He will say and do anything to be on TV. So now he’s trying to go the humility route. That’s not what his supporters want to hear. He’s Invincible, supposedly, and the only one that can fix America, supposedly. And now he’s going off message.
He will come up short in November and it’s n-no way thanks to our media that have been like whores around him. I’m more worried about the long-term effects of what he has done to our political system then to his presidency.
If you’re for him or against him, I believe his behavior warrants this. From attacking Gold Star Mothers to saying that everything he’s planning to do as President is a secret there is something wrong with Donald Trump. And as a public service I believe we are going to allow him to have the nuclear codes he should have psychologists and psychiatrists determine whether or not he is fit for the job.
They say that Donald Trump is thin skinned. That is an understatement. Yes in his speech he said that he’d like to hit some of the Democrats or those speaking at the DNC, he said that he meant this proverbially. But later in the speech he went and started talking about Tim Kaine. He said that he was upset that I came that all these bad things about him. He said he could not understand why Tim Kaine would talk this way since he doesn’t know him. Yet someone who he gave money 2 their campaigns several times and invited them to his daughter’s wedding should be called Criminal and be put in jail. His attacks on Hillary Clinton are Beyond personal and yet in the past they used to be if not friends at least close acquaintances. As cheap as Donald Trump is turning out to be I don’t think he’d invited two people to a wedding that he’s paying for just show. Aldo Donald Trump does a lot just for show. Please don’t let this man get anywhere near the White House. Can you imagine when some foreign leader says something bad about him and he has the nuclear codes. It’s the end of the world as we know it, and those are not just lyrics.
There’s one thing you can say about Trump and that’s he is an ungrateful sob. After being rescued by the Denver Fire Department the first thing he said when he got up on stage was too blessed the fire marshal for not allowing enough people into his rally. Fire Marshals have to abide by rules something that Trump doesn’t seem to know how to. I put together events as large as the ones that he has and the fire marshal is god at your event. But to slap the fire department in the face after they rescued you from an elevator is how Trump is going to be as a leader. Ungrateful.
I love how Republicans hold a grudge. I knew that Trump repeatedly calling him lying Ted Cruz was going to eventually cost Trump something. And today it was GOP party Unity. What an embarrassment. This is from the convention. From said this over and over again. So he gives Ted Cruz a prime-time speaking slot and Cruz insults him by not endorsing him. Shakespeare would be proud.
Until Hillary Clinton gets on stage and announces her vice presidential pick all of this is background static. I think that Senator Cory Booker, a true American Hero, would make a great vice presidential pick. Hillary has the luxury I love having a myriad of choices that would be perfect as her vice president. That is not what can be said at all about Donald Trump. Those who would consider becoming Trump’s vice presidential candidate are power hungry and are also ignoring the fact that they are hitting their star to a supernova that’s going to explode in their face.
Hillary will make a choice that is good for the country. Donald Trump will make a choice that is good for Donald Trump.
I watched the interview this morning on MSNBC and he did not endorse her but he also said he would do everything possible to make sure that Trump does not win the White House. And also on a more positive note he went further and said that “We Democrats need to win governorships, win-back Congress and steakhouses across the country.” I had never heard him say a term that was inclusive with him as being a Democrat. Look, Bernie Sanders is someone who has had the same positions since he was in his twenties. He says he has a small window of opportunity and he’s going to try to leverage that to the max. I believe that eventually he will endorse Hillary but I’m not sure that you’ll have the power to bring some of his more radical supporters into the fold. The latest poll shows that 22% of Sanders supporters want to vote for Trump. That makes no ideological sense. So if he can bring that number down and even if that 22% does not vote it still is a positive for Hillary’s campaign. AVB http://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/sanders-clinton-vote-224760
