The other thread was too annoying.

Tw, Idk, nor care about what specifically who called for what. Bottom line both sides call bullshit on judges rulings when it does not suit them and bitch " how dare they" abput there opposition.

They all do it.

As for chief judicial officer, he does have a pretty powerful ability of Pardon and to appoint judges.He is on course to effect of the Judiciary more than any one individual in.modern US history.For good or bad.

i'm criticizing the way the total asshole hypocrite shitbag fraud liar blows things out of proportion

also, given his significant role in the law enforcing branch of the gov't, how in the hell does ANYONE accept his constant claims of illegal behavior of opponents & of the investigations into him that are in NO WAY illegal

(you don't need to answer... if you try it won't make any sense to me... there is a weird block where Trump fans can't see how ridiculous what he says & does is compared to every other responsible person in existence)

Jergul, Your numbers are off.

He, Perhaps the tally jas gone up since i looled last.

Regardless, considering there is nothing riding on Trumps primary and he did no campaigning.

The top three candidates got 25k votes in a deep blue SS.

Then figure ( estimate) that 85% of Sanders supporters will vote for Biden, that leaves a nice chunk that will not.

Its an enthusiasm gap, if Trump can pull that off without trying, its impressive.

Not lock, but impressive.

more shocking new info to ignore (i wanted to trim it down, but it's constant shocking info...):


President Trump’s company charged the Secret Service $157,000 more than was previously known — billing taxpayers for rooms at his clubs at rates far higher than his company has claimed, according to a new trove of receipts and billing documents released by the Secret Service.

Many of the new receipts were obtained by the watchdog group Public Citizen, which spent three years battling the Secret Service over a public-records request from January 2017.

When added to dozens of charges already reported by The Washington Post, the new documents show that Trump’s company has charged the Secret Service more than $628,000 since he took office in 2017.

The payments show Trump has an unprecedented — and still partially hidden — business relationship with his own government. The full scope of that relationship is still unknown because the publicly available records are largely from 2017 and 2018, leaving huge gaps in the data.

The new documents include bills from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., showing charges for 177 additional nightly room rentals in 2017, 2018 and 2019. The rate was $396.15 per night per room, the receipts show.

In Bedminster, N.J., the new receipts also show that a rental arrangement that began in summer 2017 — where Trump’s club charged the Secret Service $17,000 per month to rent a cottage near the president’s — continued in summer 2018 and for at least part of summer 2019. That rate is unusually high for homes in the area, according to local rental listings.

Trump’s son Eric Trump, who is helping to run the Trump Organization while his father is in the White House, suggested in an interview last year with Yahoo Finance that the company charges a very low rate to federal employees accompanying the president.
AD

“If my father travels, they stay at our properties for free — meaning, like, cost for housekeeping,” said Eric Trump, the company’s executive vice president. Later in the interview, he said, “We charge them, like, 50 bucks.”

[What President Trump’s company charges the Secret Service]

In response to questions from The Post about the Secret Service payments, Eric Trump has said the company charges the Secret Service “at cost” but declined to provide more details. The rate charged to the Secret Service at Mar-a-Lago was more than double what the club charged another government customer, a visiting official from the Department of Veterans Affairs, according to VA records.

Asked about the spending, the Secret Service responded with a brief statement. “In the execution of our protective mission, the Secret Service balances operational security with judicious allocation of resources,” a spokeswoman said.

The White House declined to comment. Donald Trump still owns his company but says he has given day-to-day control to his eldest sons.

The Secret Service accompanies the president and his family members wherever they go, and while on protective duty its agents are exempt from federal limits on hotel room spending.

But there appears to be no requirement that presidents must charge the Secret Service. In fact, most recent presidents and vice presidents have allowed the Secret Service to use space on their properties free, according to their spokesmen or presidential library staff.

Before Trump, the one recent exception had been then-Vice President Joe Biden, who charged the Secret Service $2,200 a month to rent a cottage at his home in Delaware. A Biden spokesman said that was a fair market rate. Biden’s payments were formalized in a federal contract and listed in public databases of federal spending.

The Secret Service’s payments to Trump’s companies have been made through federal credit cards, not formal contracts. They are not listed in public databases. The Post and watchdog groups including Public Citizen have assembled some details of the Secret Service’s spending at Trump properties through public-records requests, one receipt at a time.

The documents reviewed by The Post so far have included charges for more than 590 nights in rooms at Trump properties. At Mar-a-Lago, the rate for the Secret Service started at $650 per night, according to people who have seen unredacted versions of the receipts from early 2017 viewed by The Post. The rate then fell to $396.15 per night by fall 2017, other receipts show. At Bedminster, the monthly cottage rent worked out to $566.64 per night.

The Post has not yet found any instance where a Trump property charged the Secret Service $50 per night for a room or any rate under $100 per night.

Public Citizen submitted the public-records request with the Secret Service on Jan. 6, 2017 — before Trump took office. They asked for records related to the cost of Secret Service agents accompanying Trump on trips to his private homes. After three years of legal wrangling, the Secret Service last month sent Public Citizen 60 pounds of documents, the group said.

The Secret Service had produced thousands of pages of receipts, mostly related to Trump’s visits to two properties — Mar-a-Lago and Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster — where he has spent a combined 219 days of his presidency. The receipts were largely from 2017 and 2018.

Trump has spent 355 days — 30 percent of his presidency so far — visiting his own properties, according to a Washington Post tally.

Robert Weissman, the president of Public Citizen, said the group was happy to get the documents — but dismayed that most of them were so old.

“That is not how the process is supposed to work,” Weissman said. “Responding in 2020 with information from 2017 and 2018 is not okay.” The Secret Service said in a statement that it adheres to all rules governing public-records requests.

Some of the documents were for bills from the clubs. Around Christmas 2017, for instance, the Secret Service paid for 57 nights in Mar-a-Lago’s guest rooms, for a total bill of $22,580.

On many bills from Mar-a-Lago, the $396.15 nightly rate for these rooms was listed as “Room Rate at Cost.”

The Trump Organization has not explained how it calculates that cost or why that figure differs so widely from Eric Trump’s public claim that the cost was “like 50 bucks.” Hotel industry experts say that the cost of housekeeping for a luxury hotel room is typically $40 to $50 per night. Could the cost be as high as $396.15 at Mar-a-Lago?

“No. That’s not possible,” Diego Bufquin, a professor at the University of Central Florida’s Rosen College of Hospitality Management told The Post this month.

“Let’s say that you use the best shampoos, the best soaps, the best conditioners, the best coffee,” Bufquin said. “At the end of the day you may have something approaching $100, if you have the top products in the world in your guest room. . . . I’ve never seen variable costs per room sold at $400.”

Experts said that cleaning a room typically takes a housekeeper a half-hour and noted that — according to documents filed with the Labor Department — the starting salary for housekeepers at Mar-a-Lago is $11.17 per hour.

In a recent interview with a Fox News podcast, Eric Trump called a prior Post story on Secret Service payments to the Trump Organization “disgusting” and said that the company does not make a profit on these payments.

“I joke all the time that I would like nothing more than to never have another person from the government stay at one of our properties because it displaces a true paying guest,” he said.

Eric Trump did not respond to questions from The Post asking him to elaborate on his remarks in the interview.

It is difficult to estimate what Mar-a-Lago charges its nongovernment customers, as the club does not publish its room rates. As a private club, the rooms are open only to guests of members, and even members are told to call and ask for price quotes.

But another receipt makes clear that $396.15 is not the lowest the club’s rates can go.

In April 2018, the chief of staff at the Department of Veterans Affairs, Peter O’Rourke, stayed overnight at Mar-a-Lago, according to a hotel bill obtained by ProPublica. At the time, ProPublica reported, O’Rourke was visiting the club to meet with a Mar-a-Lago member and two associates who were unofficially advising the department.

O’Rourke was charged only $195. That is the maximum rate a non-Secret Service government employee was permitted to spend on a hotel in the Palm Beach area under federal rules. O’Rourke has since left VA and did not respond to requests for comment.

The Secret Service happened to be renting four rooms on the same night, other receipts show. Mar-a-Lago charged them $396.15 each — more than double O’Rourke’s rate.

In Bedminster, the receipts show that — as in 2017 — the club charged $17,000 a month for the “Sarazen Cottage.” The monthly arrangement meant the Trump Organization company got paid by taxpayers, even when Donald Trump wasn’t at the club — or even in the country. On June 12, 2018, for instance, Trump was in Singapore for a summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.

Even with the president was 9,500 miles away, the Secret Service still paid rent on the cottage in New Jersey. A former government official with direct knowledge of Secret Service operations told The Post that because equipment was stored in the cottage, it could not be rented to other guests. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to preserve relationships in the administration.

"
New York (CNN) - Facebook (FB) said Thursday it will remove some ads run by President Donald Trump's re-election campaign that it says ran afoul of its policies to "prevent confusion around the official US census."

Facebook had come under fire for allowing the Trump campaign to run ads this week on its platform asking people to "respond now" to an "Official Congressional District Census."
"This survey is ESSENTIAL to our team's 2020 campaign strategy. We need Patriotic Americans like YOU to respond to this census, so we can develop a winning strategy for YOUR STATE," some of the ads read.

The questions on the survey include asking users about their views of President Trump as well as their age, name, and contact information. The survey also asked what news outlets they read most, and if they "think Nancy Pelosi and the Radical Left are putting their personal anti-Trump agenda ahead of what's best for the American people."

while at the CDC learning nothing, campaign-hat-wearing Trump lied that anyone who needs a coronavirus test can get one... and says the tests are all perfect, like the Ukraine transcript... "this was not as perfect as that, but pretty good"

have i noted he's mentally-ill child?

i guess now the word 'perfect' will always trigger a Ukraine reference, as 'rocket' triggers a North Korea reference

REDFIELD: We’ve now shipped out… enough to test 75,000 people at the public health labs now.

TRUMP: Anybody who wants a test can get a test.

also in that thread of clips is:

TRUMP: "I like this stuff. I really get it… every one of these doctors said, ‘how do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability."

and him asking the Fox News reporter about how his ratings were at his town hall last night

Trump to Skip Annual Bipartisan St. Patrick's Day Luncheon

“Since the speaker has chosen to tear this nation apart with her actions and her rhetoric, the President will not participate in moments where she so often chooses to drive discord and disunity”

Trump is actually a notorious germaphobe. It will be amusing to see how that plays out.

while he -is- a germaphobe, i have no doubt it's about Pelosi as the Speaker is the host of event... he is definitely petty enough to refuse to do anything w/ her

and if he slows down his rally schedule, i would bet only as worried the crowds wouldn't be as big rather than fear of getting virus himself

i'm sure in private he's constantly coating himself in Purell (or its cheapest knock-off if he's paying himself)

also exaggerations shouldn't be dismissed or excluded... if he does it sooooo much, how do you ever know when to believe him?

also... him talking much more is still bad, even if anyone ever did lie as much as he does (which they didn't), as it means he's spreading more lies per second in two ways

he's way more likely to lie than anyone else
and speaks more often

both bad

is it on Trump's twitter 5 hrs later? nope
(it's on Pence's... as if anyone follows Pence... been there 3 hrs, they could've just done a retweet of Pence, but nope)

Trump has multiple tweets a day telling the public his administration is doing a great job, but i think i recall maybe 1 total w/ advice... & probably was a tweet/retweet by his staff

if you learned the things you thought were jokes were never meant as jokes, would your view of the mentally-ill fraud child change?

"
Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt sparred with Donald Trump on his radio program Thursday morning, pressing the Republican presidential nominee on his claim that President Barack Obama was "the founder of ISIS."

"Last night you said the president was the founder of ISIS," Hewitt said. "I know what you meant. You meant that he created the vacuum, he lost the peace."

"No, I meant he's the founder of ISIS," Trump replied. "I do. He was the most valuable player. I give him the most valuable player award. I give her, too, by the way, Hillary Clinton."

Hewitt pressed Trump, explaining that Obama has not been "sympathetic" to the terrorist organization, "hates them," and is "trying to kill them."

"I don't care," Trump said. "He was the founder. His — the way he got out of Iraq was that — that was the founding of ISIS, OK?"

The New York businessman added again that he would characterize Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, as the "cofounder." He had previously referred to her as the founder of the group.

"Let me ask you, do you like that?" Trump asked Hewitt.

Hewitt, not amused, replied: "I don't."

"I think I would say they created, they lost the peace. They created the Libyan vacuum, they created the vacuum into which ISIS came, but they didn't create ISIS," the radio host said. "That's what I would say."

"Well, I disagree," Trump said.

The Republican presidential nominee, mirroring Hewitt's argument, contended that Obama's policies allowed ISIS to form.

"Therefore, he was the founder of ISIS," Trump said.

An exasperated Hewitt responded by saying he'd "just use different language to communicate" the message.
"

Not. Joking.

his typical used-car salesman fraud branding by twisting and simplifying reality (as he can only think in simple concepts... ask yourself why Trump answered "No" to Hugh's initial characterization)

Honestly it goes like this, I'm getting favorable judges, he isnt taking my guns, rolling back regulations, I like his FP.Regardless of any stunt he pulls, he is accomplishing avorable things.

Let me ask you this.

If you had a president that passed quality universal healthcare, national gun background checks, minimum wage incrrases, balanced the budget with a tax on banks and loadednthe courts with favorable judges would you care if said potus dressed like Liberace and was a.follower of Zoroastrianism and a flat earth?

how about on healthcare... seems a top issue for many voters, he promised to repeal/replace... too much to expect for the President to know a single thing about it?

just completely empty used-car salesman claims of better/cheaper healthcare & of always protect pre-existing conditions (even though he's actively supporting a court case that would end it) & lies that he saved those provisions

he is pathetic garbage
