Trump is now communicating in Morse Code. The following is a recent Tweet in its entirety:

Someone should check his IV drip. Whatever they're giving him, they should up the dosage.

The fact that over 50,000 people liked this tweet fills me with hope or despair, I haven't decided yet.

When a horse whisperer is whispering to a horse, it's always a curiosity: what are they actually saying?

When Trump whispers in a moron's ear, this is the kind of this he's saying. Course, Trump doesn't know how to whisper, exactly, so now all his morons are deaf.

According to Donald Trump, his daughter Ivanka has already created 14 million new jobs and the number is "going up."

Trump speaking to a rally crowd in Louisiana:

"You're ranked number 50 on economic development. So you're doing fine, but you're not doing like you should be doing."


50th place, out of 50 states. Doing fine. Squad goals.

According to the Washington Post, Trump wants a nationwide review of water efficiency standards because “people are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times as opposed to once,” the president said.

“We have a situation where we’re looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms, where you turn the faucet on in areas where there’s tremendous amounts of water, where it rushes out to sea because you could never handle it. And you don’t get any water. You turn on the faucet and you don’t get any water,” Trump said.

Considering that the absolute mongoloids who are Trump supporters seem absolutely impervious to any of his shortcomings because, well, abortion or blacks or Hispanic immigration or some other (((single issue))), we have to accept that there is no depth to be plumbed, no lie too onerous to be peddled, no aspect of our Constitution worth preserving outside an amendment or two, and no public office too sacrosanct to not be parlayed into a scheme.

Their defense for their moral vacuity? Whataboutism based on lies and misinformation or ignorance.

If RBG kicks the bucket, and IF for some reason the Democrats were to allow a third pick on Trump’s first term to go through, I’d accept a strict Constitutionalist if only to have a branch of our federal government interested in its long-term viability.

So, when the moral vacuity of the previous administration's 8 years is met with moral vacuity you suddenly light your hair on fire because of the party flavor...and because how dare they act like you.

This whole tiresome tantrum of proclaiming "constitutional crisis" when no such thing has even come close to being manifest in the past 3 years is pathetic.

Pointing out your feeble and desperate criticisms is not "whataboutism", it is an illumination of your hypocrisy. The mere fact that you guys fall over yourselves to focus on the innuendo of Trump while ignoring the blatant reality of Joe/Hunter proves how sad the Democrats have become. You guys are hemorrhaging moderate voters and their is no reason to see that changing anytime soon.

That slid past my eyes the first time I saw it. But then I looked again. And although it is a month since this happened, it deserves a really close look, because of what it tells us about the mental state of the man with the nuclear launch codes.

14,000,000 jobs -created by Ivanka Trump?

I mean. that is about 50% larger than the populations of Sweden, of Portugal, of the Dominican Republic .... it is a breathtakingly unrealistic and unbelievable figure. As the article below points out, the economy of the entire USA has at most created about 6,000,000 jobs since the last presidential election.

It's so wrong, it's insane. Nobody in a high office in the USA who utters such a figure can be said to be in contact with the basic realities of the country he leads.

And yet Donald Trump said it. So what do we conclude? Stunningly ignorant, or just so confident in the success of his lies that he believes he can get away with anything?

Or maybe his brain is fraying at the edges?


Trump Tells Crowd Ivanka Has Created 14 Million New Jobs
By Jonathan Chait



At a speech to the Economic Club of New York today [12 November], President Trump declared that his daughter, Ivanka, has personally created 14 million new jobs. The president announced this figure — so astonishingly ludicrous it would embarrass a Stalin-era pronouncement — and then repeated it twice more as the crowd applauded politely.

The entire U.S. economy has created fewer than 6 million new jobs since Trump took office. So Trump is crediting his daughter with having personally created more than 200 percent of all new jobs in the United States. This is like supply-side economics but for authoritarian nepotism.

Exactly how she did this remains a subject of some confusion. The mechanism involves the “Pledge to America’s Workers,” in which the chief executives of various firms promise to create some arbitrary number of training and other opportunities. You can read about this program at its official White House page, but the details are sparse even by the standards of a White House messaging site. There truly does not seem to be any policy here other than Ivanka asking businesspeople to promise to create jobs.

Last October, Ivanka claimed this initiative had created 6.3 million jobs. Lydia DePillis interviewed some of the companies that contributed to this number, and several admitted they had simply credited all real (or, in some cases, hypothetical) job openings to the Ivanka initiative.

Donald Trump touted this initiative in January, insisting, “My daughter has created millions of jobs.” Now it has more than doubled to 14 million. As Trump told his supportive audience, “14 million and going up!” It is almost certainly true that the number of jobs Trump claims his daughter created is going up. By next year, it might exceed the entire workforce.

Trump just referred to himself as "the greatest of all American Presidents". Not sure if this represents a fracture in reality as we know it, or is simply one more sign of Trump's malignant narcissism.

And then immediately perhaps one of the dumbest people I've ever witnessed exist within his own thick skull mashes out:
