Is this the best we get?
Weiner pleads guilty and Joe Biden brags about how he would have been a good candidate?
Jusus fucking Christ, it's noon already. We're accustomed to some excitement by now.

Mr. Clean's angry father is live right now telling us all about who Trump will dine with tonight and how he will work with our Muslim friends in Saudi Arabia. His words about the true nature of Islam and how some pervert the religion should aggravate some PatNetters, anyway.

This should make you happy, since your candidate lost but you're getting the same Saudi boot-licking policy. I'm not terribly pleased about it.

I do wonder if there are Saudi Princes who realize they've backed themselves in a corner by kissing Wahabi ass, and are looking for a way out.

What they need to do is take a page from Stalins book, get some commandos, round 'em all up and either shoot them or have them turn the big wheel in the Desert for the rest of their lives as a replacement Siberian Gulag (a la Conan the Barbarian)

There's a story that Ataturk rounded up the top Imams for a "conference", put them on a boat, and then sank it.

I think it's slow because the only news the Meida has on Trump is Trump's reactions to their lies.
If Trump isn't going to be around for a few days to shoulder their Republic Assault, then it does not good.

God KNOWS there's no real crime they could investigate in the meantime and report. But sigh... There is NOT!

Well, I agree with that general strategy and have made the case for it as I understand it. It's quite far from what Trump implied in the campaign, though. It's unclear to me if he's just making nice prior to his trip to SA (why go their first anyway?) or if it represents some fundamental change for him. If the latter, I'd like to know: is it just due to the swapping out of Flynn for McMaster, due to something Trump has learned since being read in, or because Trump has been bought out by SA? In the age of the 'believe me' president, we will likely not even get an attempt at an explanation.

Trump is Trump's reactions to their lies.

I was going to say, 'well no shit it's slow. Trump is on an airplane today!' But at least 1/2 of the headlines are generated by other people leaking things, so you never know

1 more to Add: Sweden dropped the endless investigation into Julian Assange, although they could have interviewed him at any time like they do for hundreds of others being investigated each year by Sweden that reside abroad.

Our last President was a "Believe Me" also; ISIS being the JV team not a real threat, and of course there was no cash for hostages, even though the hostage himself reported he was being held from departing Iran until the Cargo Plane full of USD on pallets landed later that day.

Seems likely that Trump's initially correct opinion of the Saudis was changed to a false but more financially profitable opinion by Jared Kushner:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/18/world/middleeast/jared-kushner-saudi-arabia-arms-deal-lockheed.html

WASHINGTON — On the afternoon of May 1, President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, welcomed a high-level delegation of Saudis to a gilded reception room next door to the White House and delivered a brisk pep talk: “Let’s get this done today.”

Why doesn't he shoot a Mexican rapist in the face and MAGA! ?

The administration will probably use the excuse that the Saudis are helping to fight terrorism:

They also said the arms sale would be only one element of Mr. Trump’s busy two-day stop in Saudi Arabia, which will also include a meeting with King Salman at the royal court, a conference with Persian Gulf allies, a broader summit meeting with the leaders of Muslim countries, and a visit to a new center dedicated to combating terrorism and extremism.

But the Saudis have defined all threats to their theocratic regime as terrorism. Atheists are officially terrorists according to Saudi law:

Saudi Arabia has introduced a series of new laws which define atheists as terrorists, according to a report from Human Rights Watch.

In a string of royal decrees and an overarching new piece of legislation to deal with terrorism generally, the Saudi King Abdullah has clamped down on all forms of political dissent and protests that could "harm public order".

If he does it on 5th avenue, it would definitely be OK.

Do you think that the Saudis will give Jared a loan for his 666 building? It's on 5th avenue too. Maybe they could shoot the Mexican rapist at the signing ceremony.

by winning the popular vote

Again I would have been enthusiastic about activism against all the same shit if Clinton won, the world of hurt would have been a lot smaller, but maybe all the hurt is a good wake up call so that voters start paying attention to Washington DC instead of consumering (which fewer can afford by the day) or even working too much free overtime.

Yeah, that wasn't such a good prediction, was it.

I've read some editorials about SA thinking that anybody would be a better ally than Obama. They weren't too happy about the Iran deal.

I'm not sure how you square your hatred of SA and mideast conflicts with your hatred of Obama. Also unsure about your anti-Iran stance with your pro Russia position. It seems to me that everything has to be interpreted based on the historical alliances and enemies in the region. Obama nudged us away from SA and toward Iran, which was a more neutral stance. He pulled out of one war and kept us from getting involved in another (even if it was from fear of impeachment). Considering your hatred of SA, favorable stance toward Russia, and desire to avoid wars, I would think that you'd be OK with Obama on the whole.

Maybe she fell back on her child sex ring business, right?

The dopey in the WH says China lies about global warming, Obama is Kenyan, Ted Cruz' father was involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy!

You alt right love being talked down to every day by authority figures since you keep listening.

Which is losing. We use the Electoral College, have never used the National Popular Vote Total to elect a President.
