From Reuters here:
“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump told Reuters in an interview. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
He doesn’t get his daily after lunch pee on a hooker session in the White House because he’s too busy peeing on the American people.

Trump’s Wall May Not Stretch Entire Border, Secretary Kelly Says
That’s not a wall, it’s a funnel!
So the wall, much like the man himself, is kinda a piece of shit.
From the Daily Beast here:
Ivanka Trump, daughter and adviser to President Trump, is building a fund for female entrepreneurs, Axios reported Wednesday. “The statistics and results prove that when you invest in women and girls, it benefits both developed and developing economies,” Trump told reporter Mike Allen in Berlin. “Women are an enormous untapped resource, critical to the growth of all countries.” Trump says the fund will provide capital to both small and medium-sizes enterprises run by women around the globe and that the financing will come from various countries and corporations.
Oh yeah, that part in bold, that’s the shit right there.
Now after all the carping that President PumpkinHead did during the election about crooked Hillary and the Clinton Foundation, Ivanka the Terrible is going to rock the same business model?
Lock her up!! Lock her up!!
Headline from the Daily Beast:
Sheryl Sandberg, feminist author and chief operating officer of Facebook, says the social-media giant doesn’t see itself as a publisher or an “arbiter of the truth.” The social-networking site has come under fire in recent months for not appropriately fighting “fake news” articles published on its pages. “We are really a platform and we take our responsibilities on false news very seriously.
So it’s looking like Facebook wants all the power and advertising of a publisher without any of the rules and responsibility.
Facebook makes money when people are on Facebook — that’s the deal. Get on Facebook, stay on Facebook, get all your info on Facebook, blah blah blah. And that’s how fake news works — start spreading shit on Facebook, reposting, passing it around, clicks, money, ads for people who want to access people who dig fake news! Boom!
The Trump campaign paid huge money to Facebook to run ads on Facebook looking for people who would eat fake news and vote for the Orange Fuckstick.
Ironically, the Lean In Queen has popped a little fake news of her own. It’s total crap Facebook is not a publisher.
From the Washington Post:
President Trump and his top aides pressed congressional Republicans to use the threat of a government shutdown to win funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, an effort that could lead to a standoff with lawmakers in both parties ahead of Friday’s deadline to pass a spending bill.
Team Trump is so desperate for a ‘win’ it doesn’t matter how stupid the idea. I thought the wall was in the toilet at the truck stop right next to the Muslim ban!
You can’t kill stupid I guess, you can’t even drown it in a toilet.
From NBC News here:
WASHINGTON — Dow Chemical is pushing a Trump administration that’s open to scrapping regulations to ignore the findings of federal scientists who point to a family of widely used pesticides as harmful to about 1,800 critically threatened or endangered species.
Lawyers representing Dow, whose CEO is a close adviser to President Donald Trump, and two other manufacturers of organophosphates sent letters last week to the heads of three of Trump’s Cabinet agencies. The companies asked them “to set aside” the results of government studies the companies contend are fundamentally flawed.
To be fair Obama had an agriculture secretary that was all up in the Roundup and the GMO crops which just goes to show you Uncle Sam will kill you and the animals, and Trumpy is all for it but with extra asshole sauce.
From CNBC here:
Nearly two-thirds of Americans give President Donald Trump poor or middling marks for his first 100 days in office, including a plurality who say he’s off to a “poor start,” according to results from a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Forty-five percent of respondents in the survey believe Trump is off to a poor start, with an additional 19 percent who say it’s been “only a fair start.” That’s compared with a combined 35 percent who think the president’s first three months in office have been either “good” or “great.”
I try to be a progressive person with a brain.
I think the Muslim ban is fucking stupid, but I think they could have put something in place if they had done a better job. It was really poorly done.
I don’t oppose Trump’s anti-globalization views — I support some of them. But he hasn’t done anything.
And finally, I never thought they were going to be able to repeal Obamacare in a way that would satisfy both the wing nut Freedom Cocks and the moderates, never mind the Senate. But he shit higher than his ass and he got reamed and he should have been smarter.
So you 35% out there, I’m open to the idea that Trump could do something but to say this has been good or great — you’re slightly out of your fucking heads.
