    Saw an Internet meme with the image of Trump walking down the halls of the White House late at night, carrying a candle and wearing old style nightclothes with a nightcap and being visited by the ghost of Richard Nixon, who says, “You mean you knew about Watergate and you still agreed to a taped interview with Bob Woodward?”

    Amazing how Bob Woodward can coax such admissions out of such an infamously prevaricating CON man.

    I smell another Pulitzer.

    Pathetic when a person feels that lying is justified in attempting to create a false sense of hope/security in people facing a life-threatening pandemic with no cure … and disparaging the means of preventing the spread of the disease offered by established proven experts. The ☠resident behaves like a golem, … a creature with no soul, no heart, no brain.

    I commented a few years ago that no president after Nixon would ever again be so stupid as to record his unguarded conversations. But even if so, that in a PR emergency the recordings could be deleted by pressing a single key. Obviously, I was wrong, and it’s happening again. Is it due to overweening pride or gross stupidity. With Trump — probably both. Oh (wait for it)— “He was only kidding,” chirps Meganinny.

    Trump is literally killing the USA. There are more adult children living at home than there were during the last republican caused Great Depression. We have lost all of our know how and can do under Republican dictatorship.

    I believe that when the dust eventually settles it will be very apparent that the orange buffoon is every bit as much of a crook as he is a liar!

    Lying again! Of course he’s a crook. He should have been in prison years ago for multiple cases of several kinds of fraud and sexual assault, and that’s just the reasons for which there is no doubt because he’s admitted/bragged about them. Highly probable are money laundering, tax evasion, bribery, rape, obstruction of justice and treason. Not to mention various types of corruption and being in violation of the Constitution since the moment he finished taking the oath of office.

    If I were Trump I wouldn’t be in the same building with Woodward, let alone the same room with Woodward and a tape recorder.

    And if I were Trump I head down to the bunker with poison and a Luger

    Just a guess, but there are probably a number of contractors that trump stiffed.. who would disagree with the crook part.

    Conservative pundit Kathleen Parker: " I am eager to defend Jennifer Griffin, the Fox News military reporter whom President Donald Trump has targeted for firing. Though she has plenty of friends at Fox, several of whom have commented on her behalf, Griffin deserves a robust endorsement from all her colleagues. I’ve followed her closely for more than a decade, and I can say without qualm that she’s as good as it gets — a solid, hard-working, fair-minded journalist and, as others have said, a class act.Yet, the most powerful person in the entire world has decided to make her Public Enemy No. 1. All media are the enemy to Trump, as we know, but singling out an individual reporter for punitive action is tantamount to making her a target at a time when everybody has a short fuse.Griffin’s offense was confirming some of the allegations published last week by the Atlantic of derogatory remarks Trump had made about members of the U.S. military killed in action. The article, by Atlantic editor in chief Jeffrey Goldberg, concerned a 2018 trip to Paris when Trump canceled a planned visit to the World War I Aisne-Marne American Cemetery. Trump, according to Goldberg’s sources, said the graves belonged to “suckers” and “losers.”Based on her own reporting, Griffin tweeted that two former senior Trump administration officials had confirmed Goldberg’s reporting that “President Trump disparaged veterans and did not want to drive to honor American war dead at Aisne-Marne Cemetery outside Paris.” She also tweeted that, according to one former senior Trump administration official, "When the President spoke about the Vietnam War, he said, ‘It was a stupid war. Anyone who went was a sucker.’ "

    Parker continues: Appearing Friday on Bret Baier’s Fox News show, Griffin said she wasn’t able to confirm the “suckers” and “losers” remark, which doesn’t necessarily mean the president didn’t use those terms. It does mean that Griffin is the sort of reporter who doesn’t repeat quotes or accusations that she, herself, can’t confirm. Goldberg, also a highly respected journalist, quoted anonymous sources in his article, which, though sometimes risky, is both common and understandable given the sensitivity of the subject.Reporters often have to agree to confidential interviews to get information that otherwise wouldn’t be available. This is why legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee insisted on two confirmations before unattributed information could go to print, a gold standard made famous during the Watergate era and, thereafter, in the movie “All the President’s Men.”Trump’s history of seeking deferments from military service during the Vietnam War — and his long-ago remark that avoiding sexually transmitted diseases during the 1990s was “his” Vietnam — make the Goldberg story all the more plausible. Moreover, such dismissive remarks are consistent with Trump’s comment a few years ago that Sen. John McCain was a hero only because he was captured. “I like people that weren’t captured,” Trump said to the applause of no one.In a normal world, a man like Trump couldn’t get elected to the PTA, much less the White House. But these are far from normal times, thanks in part to the man charged with defending a Constitution he seems so often to abhor. The job of journalists, meanwhile, is to hold people in power accountable, which reporters such as Griffin and Goldberg have done with honesty and accountability throughout their respective and exceptional careers.

    And the grande finale: A president or political leader with nothing to hide has no reason to fear — nor need to demonize — the press. If some people wonder whether the president of the United States truly used “losers” and “suckers” to describe men who died at the behest of their own commander in chief, they might also ask, Why is Donald Trump so afraid?If you’re stumped, please do sit next to me. The answer is a dilly.

    Now since Trump has a taped confession of his evil deed, the prosecutors should have no problem taking him to trial for Negligent Homicide for the over 190,000 deaths.

    He’s ABSOLUTELY a crook. That’s his business: he’s a con man. He failed at every legitimate business he ever had, even when his father propped him up. He was reduced to licensing his name on other people’s buildings (instead of building his own, because no bank in the WORLD – other than the Russian-controlled Deutsche Bank – would loan to him), and keeping himself famous enough to make people think licensing his name was worth the money. He became a reality TV show star – something no REAL executive has time to do, let alone interest – purely to stay famous.

    That’s what a con man does: he convinces you that this deal is almost too good to be true, and that he should be trusted on it.
