How Golf Explains Trump.
Well, this story isn’t in the book but it’s wild. While Trump was meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore, a club championship was held at Trump International, the course Trump built near Mar-a-Lago in Florida. So later on, Trump’s back on the course there with the Secret Service and the SWAT team guys and all that stuff. And he sees Ted Virtue, who was involved in the financing of the movie Green Book.

I could never get Virtue to call me back on all this, but Golf.com reported it and I heard it from two members of the club as well. They say Virtue was there playing with his son. Trump sees Ted on the 9th hole and and decides to drive his cart over. He tells Ted: “Congrats on winning the club championship, but you didn’t really win it, because I was out of town.”

Ted tries to laugh it off, but Trump is dead serious. Trump says, “We’re gonna play these last six holes for the championship.” And Ted’s like, “Oh, well, I’m playing with my son, but thanks anyway.” But Trump says, “It’s okay. Your son can play, too.” So what are you going to do? He’s the president. It’s his course. They end up playing.

Apparently, they get to a hole with a big pond in front of the green. Both Ted and his son hit the ball on the green, but Trump hits his in the water. By the time they get to the hole, though, Trump is lining up the son’s ball. Only now it’s his ball and the caddie has switched it.

The son is like, “That’s my ball!” But Trump’s caddie goes, “No, this is the president’s ball; your ball went in the water.” Ted and his son look at each other confused, not sure if this is really happening. Trump makes that putt, and wins one up. Then, according to Golf.com, he tells Virtue something like, “I’ll tell you what, we’ll be co-champions.”

But the members tell me that when you look at the plaques on Trump’s locker there, it says: “2018 Men’s Club Champion.” No “co-” at all.
Fucking idiot. Trump.

The Atlantic takes a deep dive into Trump's history of racism. The result is long and appalling.

Pardoning several accused and convicted war criminals at once, including some who have not yet gone to trial, has not been done in recent history, legal experts said. Some worried that it could erode the legitimacy of military law and undercut good order and discipline in the ranks.
Plus it has the added benefit of letting soldiers know they should do whatever it takes to MAGA.
“It raises the prospect in the minds of the troops that says, ‘Whatever we do, if we can get the folks back home behind us, maybe we can get let off.’”

Trump would have us believe that this guy is a hero.

What does that make the SEALs who repeatedly reported him and tried to restrain his patterns of murder?

Someone with this level of psychopathy will not be able to function normally in a civilian life. I'm sure there will be plenty of grounds for nailing his ass after he shoots his wife or runs over a neighbor.

Trump is working on building his loyalist army to protect him when he leaves office.

The evil socialists are now coming to take away...windows?


“You know this. You have some of these socialist wackos they want to double and triple your taxes, and that won’t come close to paying for. They want to knock down all buildings in Manhatten and rebuild them without windows. You know that. Let’s rebuild them. Glass is no good. We don’t want windows. I used to love the view, but I think we’ll all be forced to close up windows. It’s crazy what they’re saying.”
How anyone can listen to this nonsense and think "now that's an inspiring leader" (or even "yeah, this guy is sane") is entirely beyond me.

They ignore it because it's just filler. They're waiting for the money shot:

Is he talking about the window tax in Britain, France, etc., that was abolished like 250 years ago?

He's probably getting nervous that he won't be able to send money to his friends as part of the family business.

Nice. Of course, it has an element of truth. Like Bezos, Gates doesn't agree with him on anything, is *actually* rich, and is "wasting" it by helping "shithole" countries. You know Trump has to be insecure as hell about him, which would lead him to want to tear him down.
