Anecdote from WaPo about Trump’s physician/VA nominee Dr. Ronny Jackson:
“One trait universally cited is Jackson’s storytelling ability. He has regaled colleagues with one particular tale about administering stitches on an intimate part of his body. He even recounted it for Bush after cutting himself with a hoe at the president’s ranch in Texas. … That earned him an admiring nickname from Bush: Scrote.”
Tweet from Trump on using “Mission Accomplished”:
“The Syrian raid was so perfectly carried out, with such precision, that the only way the Fake News Media could demean was by my use of the term “Mission Accomplished.” I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back. Use often!”
From Politico on Trump’s strikes in Syria:
Trump has veered back and forth on U.S. activity in the country, insisting recently that he wanted the U.S. out of Syria as soon as possible.
“After Trump’s first year we have: 1.3 trillion omnibus, no wall, war in Syria. Is Clinton secretly President?” wrote Lucian B. Wintrich, the D.C. bureau chief and White House correspondent for Gateway Pundit.
President Trump on Friday issued a pardon to Lewis “Scooter” Libby, a former chief of staff to Vice President Richard B. Cheney who was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice in connection with the leak of a CIA officer’s identity.
“I don’t know Mr. Libby,” Trump said in a statement, “but for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly. Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of his life.”

Nerve agent, schmerve agent. Amazon and Bezos are what people should be worked up about, according to Trump.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
Only fools, or worse, are saying that our money losing Post Office makes money with Amazon. THEY LOSE A FORTUNE, and this will be changed. Also, our fully tax paying retailers are closing stores all over the country…not a level playing field!
“This is what keeps me up at night, believe me.”
From Bill Maher:
“Putin has state TV, but Putin’s not an idiot,” Maher said. “So state TV does what Putin wants. I think it’s the other way in this country.”
“America’s being run by Steve Doocy,” he added, referring to the “Fox & Friends” host.
His pronouncement on trade tariffs and whether Trump may change his mind:
“Whatever his final decision is, is what will happen. What he has said he has said; if he says something different, it’ll be something different.”
Glad we got that cleared up…
