'Trump tweeted directions to American companies to find an "alternative" to doing business with China'

Pretty damned crazy. Act now before the man assaults someone.

Can you imagine Trump behaving even 10% worse than this week?

Dam is breaking. Beware the flood.

I don't think the 25th amendment can be invoked for outrageous speech. THe amendment says, "If the president is unable to do his job". To date, many people do not approve of his actions (as is always the case, no matter who is president), but Trump is still doing his job.

Why does George Conway want Mike Pence for president so badly?

On a side note, does anyone else see the George Conway and Kellyanne Conway's relationship and position the same as Mary Matalin and James Carville's? LOL

Conway is entitled to his opinion, conservative ideology, and freedom of speech. But he's acting just as hysterical and extremist as the alt-left.

Here's the thing: I support his right to express his views. I may disagree, but I don't want to silence him.

I'm not going to boycott, shout down, threaten, show up at his house, or try to get him fired from his job. You loons would, if you disagreed with him.

That is so damn funny. This guy should get his own comedy show - it would have broad-based appeal just for different reasons.

So of how why I think Zed is funny.

Zed's funny because his blood pressure and sugar levels get out of whack.

#3 I've never thought you were stupid until that post.

Trump is clearly not a man in control of his mental capacities.

How long until he does something that is so stupid it represents and immediate threat? Who acts then and how?

I always wondered how Mary Matalin and Skeletor got along without killing each other.

Without mentioning that Trump used the "hereby order" language in his statement in the summary, it makes Conway sound kookier and crazier than Trump.

Knowing the context, it makes Conway look like a very colorful snail.

This is going to be like Reagan when he had Alzheimer's while still in office. The GOP would rather have a suggestive president than one who is able to weigh advice.

Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 1994, 6 years after he got out of office.

He had cognitive problems long before 1994. Staff was covering for him quite a bit from what I read.

Telling me he was diagnosed in 1994 is like Trump being diagnosed as obese before the 2020 general election.

#3 | POSTED BY GOATMAN

He is?

Who knew.

Is non stop golfing and campaigning his job?

The tax cut for himself and enriching his family was his job?

Was it screwing over America and Americans domestically and internationally?

How about emboldening racists and racism?

He did want to build a wall. :(

What is his job?

And the process probably started a decade before he took office.

This is even more extreme than Matalin and Carville. George and Kellyanne are essentially like Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin doing that Point, Counterpoint sketch (or whatever it was called) on SNL back in its early days. Jane would argue her side and then Dan would calmly respond with "Jane, you ignorant ----..."

It's one thing for maintaining a civil relationship with a friend who disagrees with you politically, but I can't imagine how you sustain a marriage with someone you believe is part of Satan's inner circle. I have to respect my mate above all.

Maybe Kellyanne has said, "It's all an act, George. I don't believe any of the stuff I say on Trump's behalf. I just do it for entertainment and a paycheck." Which doesn't make it all right, but at least he wouldn't go to bed thinking his wife was evil.

They probably both understand that our personal politics don't define our character. They see the good in each other even though they disagree about politics. My mother-in-law is very far right and her best friend going back decades is very far left. People who aren't cloistered in an idealogical bubble recognize that there are decent people all over the spectrum.

My best friend is a far-Right Trump supporter and I'm about as far-Left as you can get. Now we haven't seen each all that much since we graduated from college 48 years ago (he lives in Virginia and I'm here in SoCal). However, we exchange emails are least once or twice a week and as we're both serious amateur photographers (actually we both make a little side money with our photos) we have and excuse to meet-up once in awhile. On at least three occasions in the last 10 years we've gone on what we call 'photo safaris', the most recent being this past April where we spent 10 days traveling 4,300+ miles across eight states stopping to see the big sights as well as what we call the 'Brown' ones, that is local historical attractions you see noted on 'Brown Signs' along the highway. Between Dennis and I, we must have taken something like 1,200 photos (After culling out all the marginal or duplicate shots, I saved 349 of MY photos in my permanent archive).

Now while we're together, we make it a point to talk about anything but politics. The first rule is, no news stations on the radio, just music or nothing at all. The second rule is that friendship is more important than politics. Besides, he tends to get so far into a topic and then says that he has to stop since he might violate federal law. You see, my friend Dennis worked nearly 30 years at the NSA and the CIA, retiring a few years ago as a Deputy Director of the CIA. This gives him a terrible advantage as he'll make some open-ended statement about something and if you try to refute it, he'll insist that he knows the real scoop but that he can't tell me why he knows what he says he does, or else he'd have to shoot me ;-)

Actually it kinda sounds like neither of them have any character, which is why they're perfect for each other.

Did you know Mary Matalin is a Libertarian now? It must have been heartbreaking to have to distance herself from her life's work when it resulted in Trump becoming the GOP scion.

OCU,
Did you go by car? 430 miles a day for 10 days and you're still friends is quite an accomplishment in itself. Even without political differences.

Yes, by car (two of the trips were in my car and one was his). We paid our own expenses, hotel and meals, and split the gas. We're both engineers and have known each other since our second year in college (50 years). We're both serious amateur photographers and we both like sampling the local brews wherever we stop for the night, so it always seemed to have worked out OK. We know each other's political views because we share a lot with other fiends and acquaintances on-line where you can express yourself as strong as you can get away with it without it becoming physical. When we're on road together, we just keep it to ourselves. It's worked so far. We're planning another trip in a year or two, probably the Southwest U.S. Our past trips were around the Great Lakes nine years ago, and the Rocky Mountains and the plains states the last two trips.
