They sure do squirm during that call, however, they've been key enablers of him and his messaging on Faux News so I have no sympathy for them at all.

There was a prior call like this with them acting exactly the same sheepish way about a year back. They deserve that discomfort.

A judge has ordered McGahn to testify, let's see if it actually happens.

Still months of appeals to get through :coffee:

Thankfully, the courts are - to this point at least - most often on the side of transparency.

The Trump era: even the independents are fake. Most vote one party consistently. But there is one group that is predictable in 2020. Women who are Dems or independents:

Nothing would please me more than seeing one of these close-up shots of him talking, just as a .30 caliber bullet rips through his fucking orange head.

I don't think many of the Orange Fuhrer's 'positions' can be considered coherent.

Why Trump's position on Afghanistan suddenly seems incoherent

On Thanksgiving, the president made a surprise trip to Afghanistan and announced that the negotiations he ended were now back on. And while that was certainly a major development, Trump added a strange twist, demanding a cease-fire that hadn’t been part of the Trump administration’s position. As the New York Times reported, this had the effect of confusing practically everyone:

Despite a sense of relief at the prospect of resuming talks to end the 18-year conflict, Western diplomats and Taliban leaders were scrambling to figure out whether Mr. Trump had suddenly moved the goal posts for negotiations.

They were particularly confused by his remarks, made during an unannounced Thanksgiving visit to Afghanistan, that the United States was once again meeting with the Taliban to discuss a deal, but that “we’re saying it has to be a cease-fire.”

Demanding a cease-fire would amount to a big shift in the American position and require a significant new concession from the Taliban – one that the Americans have little leverage to extract.


After a bilateral meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, Trump declared, “The Taliban wants to make a deal. And we’re meeting with them, and we’re saying it has to be a ceasefire. They didn’t want to do a ceasefire, but now they do want to do a ceasefire, I believe. And it will probably work out that way. And we’ll see what happens. But we’ve made tremendous progress.”

No one had any idea what he was talking about, and the idea that the Taliban “wants to do a ceasefire” appears to have been made up entirely.


The walking political dumpster-fire is screwing up yet another international situation.

A short video on Twitter is spreading right now, showing Macron, Trudeau and Johnson commenting Trump's speech.
I don't have a twitter account, and the video doesn't seem to be on YT. I found it here.
Trump won't like this :D
