    are you sure you don't want to 'guarantee' it?



    anyway...

    former national security advisor john bolton's book is scheduled to come out on the 23rd, but the trump administration is doing its best to block its release.

    bolton is a complete asshole.....but one of the things he has a reputation for is taking pages and pages of notes at meetings.

    apparently he's writing the entire time...non stop...so if he has contemporaneous notes from all of the meetings when he was in the white house, then it's clear why the white house is trying to stop the release.

    Trump suggests Lincoln’s legacy is ‘questionable,’ brags about his own work for Black Americans



    Key Points
    • President Donald Trump said that while President Abraham Lincoln — who freed Blacks from slavery during the Civil War while also saving the Union — did some good, the “end result” is “always questionable.”
    • “I think I’ve done more for the Black community than any other president, and let’s take a pass on Abraham Lincoln,” Trump told Fox News’ Harris Faulkner, who is Black.
    • Trump’s interview came nearly three weeks after the death of a black man, George Floyd, after a white Minneapolis cop kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes ignited protests nationwide.



    So, I think I’ve done more for the Black community than any other president, and let’s take a pass on Abraham Lincoln, cause he did good, although it’s always questionable,” Trump told Faulkner, who is Black.

    Trump criticizes Lincoln legacy, brags he has done a lot to help Black Americans

    ---

    Wasn't only a month ago ...



    "The closest would be that gentleman right up there [pointing to the David Chester French statue].
    They always said, Lincoln, nobody got treated worse than Lincoln. I believe I am treated worse.”
    “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago”

    And how did Faulkner respond?

    Faulker then interrupted Trump: “Well, we are free, Mr. President. He did pretty well.”
    Trump replied: “But we are free. You understand what I mean. So I’m gonna take a pass on Abe, Honest Abe, as we call him.
    Faulkner should have torn strips off the creep - and this is something that pisses me off. Trump gives himself and gets a pass when he talks shit while others get ripped by their 'own' media wing when giving interviews.

    Oh here we go, possibly this was the plan all along from Mr. Nobody Has Done More For The Blacks Than Me:

    Trump reschedules Tulsa rally 'out of respect' for Juneteenth - CNNPolitics


    "President Donald Trump announced late Friday night that he is rescheduling a rally that was to be held on June 19 -- Juneteenth, the holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States -- "out of respect for this holiday.""

    Well if Black people can’t recognize that a race-baiting bigot and narcissist with not a single ounce of compassion or decency has done more for them than anyone else and thank him for it then frankly that’s just rude and ungrateful.

    No other president has been treated more unfairly than Donald - ask him, he'll tell you so

    "So, I think I’ve done more for the Black community than any other president, and let’s take a pass on Abraham Lincoln, cause he did good, although it’s always questionable,”

    I'd like to know what he meant by questionable.

    And why the interviewer didn't question him about it.

    Because it was fox news that's why.

    The best part was when the black reporter said "We were freed", and Trump responded with "Yes, we were freed".

    What an odious little weasel he is. Not the only one either, so many in the GOP bent the knee to the orange shit-gibbon.

    Yes, she really should have confronted him on that as well.

    For some reason I cannot quite recall, I have been looking at some of Obama speeches on youtube. Sophisticated, well spoken, humerous, self-depreciating and genuinely concerned for others. The contrast with the current incumbent of the White house is staggering.

    A couple that stood out were his final address at his last White house correspondents dinner, and his eulogy at John McCains funeral.

    Someone did a cut of side-by-side Obama and Trump comments on the same things.

    As you say the contrast couldn't be any more stark.

    Likewise for some reason. Comes across as intelligent and elloquent in stark contrast to the shitgibbon.

    And me too - almost in mourning for what we have lost. I would imagine that in the future Democrats will venerate Obama just as the Republicans did for Reagan before Trump. Not at all sure what future Republicans will do with the massive hangover from all that losing that Trump has brought to the party.

    Something like this is called: "preaching water, but drinking wine..."
