If we can get our hands free to type from the constant facepalming, we should be able to post on this topic.

Thanks for this, nice to get in at the beginning of the thread for a change. Smile

Great title...

I have this feeling this thread will fill up quickly

PerkingFaintly · 12/07/2017 13:27

Thanks, Mortificado. Great title!

I'm just here to discuss Cake, obvs.

ElenaGreco123 · 12/07/2017 13:29

Great title.

I can't help feeling for Donald Jr though. A good quality person? It doesn't sound like warm support from your parent, more like a random dude you met at a meeting once.

Slightly OT but some of you may remember the weaselly Trey Gowdy who spent most of the his time in the questioning of Comey et al talking about HER EMAILS rather than anything the Republicans may have done wrong. I was watching Forensic Files on Netflix last night (it's a true crime show where people involved in a case - prosecutors, police, victims, etc - talk about a case where forensic science has helped convict someone) and he popped up as one of the talking heads - this is probably about 10 years ago or so when he was just a prosecutor and not a stooge of the Republican party. (btw if you want to see some showboating then watch the clip of him from the courtroom they show!) Anyway, it was gratifying to see that he seems to have aged about 30 years in the last 10 but also it his ironic final words on the programme (which actually were the final words of the whole show) - which were something along the lines of 'you can't ignore the science because it will get you in the end!'. Made me chuckle to know that just 10 years later he'd align himself with the worse anti-science party of modern times.

Thanks illegitimate !
Agree, betcha this will fill quickly.

'good quality' haha. He said that about his Made-In-China ties

BossyBitch · 12/07/2017 13:36

Well, to be fair he also agreed to Howard Stern referring to Ivanka as a 'piece of ass', so in a sense he's not bein unfair to Don - just a really shit father.

Oh how strong is the schadenfreude with me! Grin
And leaving a beautifully decorated Russian placemat! Smile

I spent some time trying to explain the concept of giving your son your own name & the "junior" bit to my 9 year old last night, who was agog at the whole thing. In desperation, I settled on "with Trump it's because he's big headed and also it's a bit like when dogs pee on lamp posts to claim them - it clearly marks out Donald Trump Jr as 'his.'" This final explanation seemed to satisfy DS. (He was similarly bewildered by the concept of suicide bombers following the Manchester attack - what a world we live in!)

The rotten orange really hasn't fallen very far from the fruit fly infested tree, has it?

"It's OK to do it, just don't get caught. If you DO get caught, lie. If you get caught lying point fingers elsewhere"

Looks like their 'life philosophy' (which admittedly has served them well up til now) may not be working so well anymore. Perhaps they should look up the definition of the word 'comeuppance'.

ElenaGreco123 · 12/07/2017 13:54

illegitimate I have 9-year-old DS and he often thinks I am making things up when I explain things to him about politics.

Stuffofawesome · 12/07/2017 14:02

Happy to be here . Have not told my Dad.

OnTheDarkSideOfTheSpoon · 12/07/2017 14:22

Thanks for thread!

Trey Gowdy reacts to latest revelations:

PlectrumElectrum · 12/07/2017 14:24

Musing over this, my dad would probably throw me under a bus too in the same scenario. Still can't feel much sympathy for Jr. He's the fuckwit who engaged in these shenanigans for someone he knows thinks he's useless.

I'm starting to get really impatient with all this now. We entered the twilight zone a fair few threads ago & I want to see that smug tango'd twat get his comeuppance. Like yesterday.

StormFrontage · 12/07/2017 14:26

I like this thread.

Trump Jnr is getting into some very hot water.

cozietoesie · 12/07/2017 14:31

Thanks for the new thread, illegitimate. Smile

That was a good piece, Orlantina.

The W.H. is functioning perfectly, focused on HealthCare, Tax Cuts/Reform & many other things. I have very little time for watching T.V.

OnTheDarkSideOfTheSpoon · 12/07/2017 15:01

I'm a bit weary of Claude Taylor and his best buddying of Louise Mensch, but I think there is more that will come out. (Not vouching for the provenance of these two either but it does look like something's coming).

NYT already have next bombshell, slow release is to provoke the Trumps into reacting, then new shoe drops & shows they lied again. Awesome.

45 is doubling down. (He did it with Trump University - until he realised that, for once, it wouldn't work. Wink)

MetalMidget · 12/07/2017 15:07

I'm trying not to be cynical and think that they'll just continue getting away with it. Dodgy orange bastards.

place marking.

Jay Sekulow discussing latest events with Chris Cuomo on CNN. I lost half an hour watching it but it was worth it! Sekulow tries to pivot like KAC but gratifyingly, Cuomo seems to be able to pin him down better.

Lweji · 12/07/2017 15:39

I want to be adopted by a Russian oligarch. Grin

I bet Junior wouldn't mind either.

Place marking while I wait to adopt my lovely Russian hacker spreader of kompromat baby.
