    I anticipate Spicer getting fired.

    Sounds like he's speaking from the gut, instead of the brain. That's real America. Did you know you have more nerve endings in your gut than your brain?

    So, this is the replacement for the Clown-car and non-RD Clinton vs Trump threads?

    Limerick incoming:

    Trump's as slipp'ry as ice rendered icier.
    His truthfulness couldn't be dicier.
    But you'll have to admit
    That although they're bull----,
    Alternative facts are just Spicier.

    The good news: Trump has lost a great deal of weight and so his suits finally fit.
    The bad news: We've gone from a shining city on a hill to a forlorn crag ripped by frigid winds.

    Do you really believe this or are you just contributing to the hilarity of just another joke thread?

    And he's at great effort pulling a small number of people out of the factory-graveyard that is his jaundiced vision of America.

    Look it up! You might do so. And you might say "that's not true." Well, that's probably because you looked it up in a book. Next time, look it up in your gut. That's where I looked it up. My gut says it has the most nerve endings.

    The gut has more nerve endings because the brain is full of nerve beginnings.

    I read someone theorise (don't remmeber who, might've been here on cfc), that Trump kinda is planning to get a bunch of people, have them say ridiculous things on his behalf, and then throw them under the bus basically

    It's a hard call. Trump has both streaks: fiercely loyal to people he deems to be sufficiently supportive of him/more than willing to cast off anyone he comes to regard as a liability (Manafort, Lewendowski).

    But in the role of press secretary specifically, he'll need an ongoing willingness to say ridiculous things on his behalf, whether that's Spicer or a Spicer-successor.

    I hope he keeps Spicer - look at what came out of that man's twitter

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/pol...ear-twitter-war-dippin-dots-article-1.2953270

    It takes a special kind of moron to engage in a five year twitter feud with an ice cream brand - the perfect person to act as press secretary and take the heat off of Trump.

    New on the clown front, Dingbat Don signed two executive orders "to revive the Keystone XL pipeline." They basically instruct various agencies related to the pipeline approval process to follow the law (duh). There doesn't seem to be anything in either one of them constituting an "order" of any kind, and certainly nothing that amounts to much of anything, but between the big fanfare signing ceremony and the release of the actual text shares of TransCanada rose 3.5%.

    It would be really interesting to know who bought TransCanada this morning and sold it this afternoon.

    Wasn't there something he wanted to pass that would require America to leave UN or something?

    So, the right was the first to turn alt-.
    Now a fact's not distinct from a fault.
    How I dream (as I live)
    Of an alternative
    Universe where all Trump would just h-alt-!

    "Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to 'leak' into the public...Are we living in Nazi Germany?"
    -- Trump tweet

    "They sort of made it sound like I had a feud with the intelligence community."
    -- Trump on the media, speaking at CIA in front of Memorial Wall

    "People [who were listening to Trump] spend their lives trying to figure out what's true, so it's hard to make the case that the media created a feud with Trump. It just ain't so."
    -- CIA veteran John McLaughlin

    "He used the scene as a prop for another complaint about the media and another bit of braggadocio...That Trump made no mention of those whom that wall memorializes, made his performance doubly offensive."
    -- Paul Pillar, former National Intelligence Officer in charge of the Middle East and South Asia

    "What self-centered, irrational decision process got him to this travesty?"
    -- CIA veteran John MacGaffin

    "Had a great meeting at CIA Headquarters yesterday, packed house, paid great respect to Wall, long standing ovations, amazing people. WIN!"
    -- Trump tweet
