This sounds potentially totalitarian to me, having the DoJ demand information from Facebook on anti-Trump activists;

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Boston voted against him. NYC voted against Trump, but we'll still have occasional things like a giant float of him during UN week blaring "God Bless America" or something equally ironic in its patriotism.

Without looking it up, I'm pretty sure Boston voted overwhelmingly for someone other than Trump. Eastern Massachusetts is one of the more liberal places in the US, afaik (West of I-95, not as much, but still quite liberal compared to "flyover country".)

It's totalitarian, and entirely un-American, so to speak.

And now Trumpenführer says he told Tillerson not to 'waste his time' negotiating with N.Korea because fuck diplomacy, all along he wants a military solution.

The thing is Tillerson is an international businessman and a successful one (where Trump is not) and he realizes that a military conflict with N. Korea is not ideal.

When an oil tycoon like Tillerson doesn't want a military conflict you should probably take heed at the severity of such action.

Trump dedicates golf trophy to hurricane victims

President Trump on Sunday dedicated a golf trophy to the victims of recent powerful storms that tore through Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, all the while defending the government's response to the disasters.

"On behalf of all of the people of Texas, and all of the people -- if you look today and see what is happening, how horrible it is but we have it under really great control -- Puerto Rico and the people of Florida who have really suffered over this last short period of time with the hurricanes, I want to just remember them," the president said.

"And we're going to dedicate this trophy to all of those people that went through so much that we love -- a part of our great state, really part of our great nation," he continued.

Trump's remarks were made as he presented the trophy to U.S. captain Steve Strickler following the Presidents Cup golf tournament in New Jersey.

Someone should take him up on that. Pick up the trophy and auction it to raise money for Puerto Rico. That way Trump would have to compete to get it back, and pay over the money he's not paying in taxes. Send in some "fake" competitors to up the ante.
