If I use this definition pop·u·list


Actual practice goes beyond dictionary definitions.

A salient aspect of populists is they indulge the prejudices of their constituents. See Golden Boy and immigration, the GOP and immigration, etc. They also nurse their grievances and play the victim card fully.

The intent all along may have been, to get Pence in the Oval office.


This is what's wrong with conspiracy thinking: too complicated and convoluted. Why not have Pence run?

Quote:
It has always been the problem. People had the same problem with Caligula.


Not really.

Julius Caesar subverted the laws and institutions of Rome, and the Romans got things like Caligula, Nero, Thrax, Caracalla, and Commodus as a result. In the old Roman Republic system of Consuls and Senate, human trash like Caligula would never have gotten anywhere close to power.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

The press is all whining like the snowflakes
they are that Trump is wearing them out.
He works 18 hours a day 7 days a week
and they can't stand it. With Obama they
knew what to expect, almost nothing on
a daily basis. Now they have work weekends,
it's driving them crazy.

Erik Wemple frets that the journalists tasked with covering Donald Trump’s White House are growing weary thanks to the “unsustainable” pace the president is setting — with long days, “ruined weekends,” and “unpredictable” moves... “It is completely unpredictable, as you’ve seen, and it’s relentless and we’re also in uncharted territory. We’ve never covered this kind of a president before.”

Nope, the days of the president having 2 hour
lunches and shooting hoops till dinner are long
gone.

Another fantasy pro-Trump post from Evenbob.

He does not work 18 hour days, 7 days a week. He watches Fox News for hours a day, for starters...

Maybe EB counts golfing as work. (Note: I'm not criticizing Donald for golfing like idiotic righties criticized Obama for golfing. I'd much prefer Donald golf rather than tweet, listen to Bannon, suck off Putin, etc.. but the fact that he has golfed A LOT since he took office cannot be ignored, especially when EB pretends he's been working the whole time.)

Priebus says they work with Trump
from 6:30 AM till 11 pm during the
week. Trump gets started about 5:30am
and goes till 1am. On weekends he
works about the same hours, even when
he's having people for dinner it's a
working dinner. He's always lived
like this, he's a workaholic, ask anybody
around him. He drove his former butler
crazy trying to keep up with him.

Uh oh. It's all over the news that Paul
Manafort might have had dealings
with a Russian billionaire 12 years ago.

There's also a rumor there's a pic of
Trump out there of him buying a
hotdog from a Russian street vendor
in 2003. Prepare for the media to be
beside themselves with horror and
indignation.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Mike Flynn wants to spill the beans to the FBI in exchange for immunity. But the FBI will only grant immunity if you can deliver someone else higher up on the ladder. And there's only one person higher up the ladder.

He wants to do it to congress, not the
FBI. There was a former judge on TV
who listed 14 reasons you might want
immunity and none of them involved
your guilt or ratting out someone
above you. The biggest reason is so
they can't trick you somehow or get you
to lie and then prosecute you for the
lie later.

He's willing to talk to both.

He has made the offer to the FBI and the House and Senate intelligence committees though his lawyer but has so far found no takers, the officials said.
