Yeah, he's cautious to a fault.

Copied from press conference transcript posted on Hullabaloo:
Reporter: Why did you wait so long to put that last statement out? 
Trump: I didn't wait long. I didn't wait long. I didn't wait long. 
Reporter: It was at least 48 hours. 
Trump: I wanted to make sure — unlike most politicians, that what I said was correct. Not make a quick statement. The statement I made on Saturday, the first statement, was a fine statement. But you don't make statements that direct unless you know the fact. It takes a little while to get the facts. 
Most of the things that come out of Donnie Covfefe's pie hole make me yell every cuss word I know (which is 99 percent of them). Sometimes, though, he says something so fucking ridiculous that profanity is pointless, and I just have to laugh. And yeah, if there's anything Donnie has established beyond a doubt, it's that he never makes an impulsive, non-factual statement, verbally or on Twitter.

Right.

Personal Militia?

Only a goddamned fool would expect Donny Covfefe to denounce the Nazi / KKK / white supremacy activists who went violent in Charlottesville. Think about it. He looks at the situation and realizes there's a small force of armed lowlifes who are loyal and willing to kill people for him. And they don't even expect to be paid. If you're Donny, that's just what the doctor ordered, right?

Pipelines

Remember when Donnie Covfefe issued that executive order authorizing the Keystone pipeline? It turns out that some of Donnie's executive orders are much like really nasty farts in a crowded elevator: unpleasant at the moment, but causing no immediate damage.

Losers of all kinds

Robert Jeffress is constantly saying stuff that results in a lot of black marks against conservative evangelical Christians. For every 10,000 black marks against evangelunatics, I'd say Jeffress is responsible for 9,999 of them.

Pat Robertson? Is he still alive? Add Paul Manafort to the list of things Pat doesn't know shit about.

You show me a white person who thinks of himself as an oppressed minority in the United States, and I'll show you a pathetic loser who needs to get off his ass and stop watching Fox News for a change. 

Whenever Donnie TRashdUMP gets nervous about things closing in on him, he says or does something outrageous to distract the media, take attention away from his problem, and get his fan club members all excited. This week, he used the suggestion of starting a nuclear war with North Korea, and sure enough, that's what everyone's talking about. The threat is so serious that TRashdUMP even cancelled his three-week golfing vacation... not really.

Digby has another update on the disturbing stupidity of so many of your typical TRashdUMPers. This time it concerns postponing the next presidential election if that's what Donnie wants.

Newsweek Cover

Years ago, before I had a computer and Internet access, I subscribed to weekly magazines like Time and Newsweek. I'd leaf through them, read the few things that looked interesting, then toss them in the recycle basket.

After I discovered I could get the news I wanted to read online for free (more or less), I let my magazine subscriptions lapse, and I doubt if I've looked at an issue of Newsweek in ten years or so. But I have to give them an A for this week's cover art.

That cover should provoke an avalanche of tweets from TRash dUMP. The cover article inside will too... if he reads it.

Frustration

Every time Donny Turnip thinks he has a great scheme going, some judge kicks the slats out from under him. When's the fat fuck ever gonna catch a break, huh?

Summer walks in Texas

Judging by the amount of water on driveways and sidewalks and in the street, some Texans seem to think you can grow concrete and asphalt using lawn sprinklers.
