Trump’s press conference, the first in 24 weeks, was nothing short of a circus thanks to a document published by BuzzFeed the night before.
The former British spy behind the Trump dump, Christopher Steele, was hired by a company called Fusion GPS, a Washington firm. Now get this tidbit:
“The story began in September 2015, when [an unknown] wealthy Republican donor who strongly opposed Mr. Trump put up the money to hire Fusion GPS to compile a dossier about Trump’s past scandals and weaknesses.”
“For months, Fusion GPS gathered the documents and put together the files from Mr. Trump’s past in business and entertainment. After Trump emerged as the presumptive nominee in the spring, the Republican interest in financing the effort ended. But Democratic supporters of Hillary Clinton were very interested, and Fusion GPS kept doing the same deep dives, but on behalf of new clients. Ergo this new, unconfirmed story.
Steele is now in hiding because he’s afraid the Russians are coming after him. Why you ask? Because Steele is the co-founder of a London based company alleging the Kremlin colluded with Trump’s campaign. As well the Russians have stuff that could be used to blackmail him.
Does anyone remember Salmon Rushdie, the dude who had to run for his life for about 30 years due to a fatwah taken out on him? Steele is in the same, rather unenviable position. He can run but he can’t hide forever.
Someone has created a countdown timer as to when Obama leaves office. At this writing it is at 7 DAYS 05 HOURS 26 MINUTES 05 seconds. Ya think they don’t like him?
Not that anyone is surprised, but an investigation has been opened into the decision in October, ten days before the election, by James Comey, the F.B.I. director, to inform Congress about a new review in the Hillary Clinton email investigation — a move Mrs. Clinton has said cost her the election.
Did he seriously think the Clinton machine was not going to get him?
The inspector general’s office said the investigation had come in response to ‘complaints from members of Congress and the public’ about actions by the F.B.I. and the Justice Department during the campaign that might be seen as politically motivated. Seriously?
Blanche, who do you think was behind all those ‘complaints’? Hillary is a bitter loser and even more bitter person. She makes people sucking on lemons look happy. Blanche, that’s really low.
Trudeau admitted today that he used the Aga Khan’s private helicopter to get around the Bahamas when he vacationed with the billionaire philanthropist, an apparent violation of federal law and his own rules. So guess what’s going to happen to him after all is said and done? Come on, try to guess.
Let’s see…he’s pretty, his hair is perfect and thick and luscious, his wife is stunning, his three children are perfect. Oh, you got. Nothing will happen. He will apologize and say he will never do this again.
This Barrett dude, Quebec’s health minister is going to be the downfall of Couillard if he doesn’t watch out. He sounds like a dictator par excellence.
He’s now fighting with radiologists. He wants to pay them $70 per ultra-sound. They want $100. We checked the prices in New York: $150-$300 in US dollars. There is no doubt that there is a two-tiered system here. Yes mainly those who can afford to go private do so, but that also helps the backlog in the public system.
We had heard that private colonoscopy clinics were being forced to shut down. We checked Rockland Medical and one can still book an appointment there. But why is he going after these doctors? Not enough have left the province? His manner is provocative, demeaning and rude and Couillard should find the cahoonas to get rid of him, unless of course he himself is scared of Barrette.
Yesterday, Trump held what can only be dubbed the mother-of-all press conferences. The highlight of the show was the confrontation between a CNN reporter and Trump. Here’s the issue: The news media simply cannot get a handle on how to cover this new and unprecedented president. He doesn’t need them and they can’t get that through their thick hair and often thicker egos.
It better figure things out, fast, because it has found itself at the edge of the cliff. Democracies need the press for checks and balances in government. While we don’t completely agree with Trump’s tactic yesterday, he certainly has every right not to trust the press, especially CNN which, we will remind you, during the election was rightly dubbed the Clinton News Network. One of Trump’s mainstays is his sharp and very long memory. CNN best find another way to respond other than digging their heels in cause that’s not going to work this time.
Oh, and one more thing. As he has not yet been sworn in as president, his supporters are still cheering their candidate Trump. Once he gets into office and has to actually make some nasty decisions, the mood may change but that will take a while. Until then, hold onto to your chair Blanche, cause it’s going to be quite the ride.
So who watched Obama’s farewell speech for over an hour? It was quite the performance eh? Especially as he walked out bowing and nodding to his adoring fans. Honestly, he really thinks he is a gift to the world and without him things will collapse.
Everyone was crying that their saviour is leaving. It was hard to watch. The best review we saw: preening. It was beautiful, he was beautiful, his wife was beautiful, life is beautiful, his legacy is beautiful and for two cents he would overturn the constitution and run for a third term. Beautiful.
Good Shabbos we’ll talk…
